My little friend – Rocky

My little friend, 11-year old dog, Rocky named after the one of Tottochan’s  in a Japanese story written by Tetsuko. I have a close childhood friend, we booth actually named our dogs as such.  Rocky, however, is not any rocky-like as appeared is his name.

Rocky is strongly attached to only people in my family. He is even a bit shy towards “stranger” guests visiting our house. He never hurts anyone. Rocky can just scare people enough by his look and his loud barking. He likes playing and sniffing around the kids or baby rather than adults, so does he like puppies and smaller dogs.

A Risky Year in Global Markets Is Coming

Like many economists, I think timing the market is a pretty hopeless task. Buy-and-hold has been a reliable strategy for increasing wealth over the past several decades, so why waste a bunch of effort trying to predict something that, if markets are truly efficient, ought to be unpredictable? But once in a while I get a little antsy. Now is one of those times. Continue reading A Risky Year in Global Markets Is Coming

Sứ điệp ĐTC nhân Ngày Hòa bình thế giới 2015

Không còn nô lệ nữa, nhưng chỉ còn tình huynh đệ với nhau

1. Khởi đầu năm mới này, khoảnh khắc chúng ta đón nhận ân sủng của Thiên Chúa cho toàn thể nhân loại, tôi xin chân thành gửi lời chúc bình an đến mọi người nam nữ, cũng như cho mọi dân tộc và quốc gia trên thế giới, các nhà lãnh đạo quốc gia và chính phủ, và các chức sắc của tôn giáo, cùng với lời cầu xin để không còn những cuộc chiến tranh, xung đột và những nỗi đau đớn gây ra bởi con người, các dịch bệnh xưa cũng như nay và bởi những tàn phá do thiên tai. Tôi đặc biệt cầu xin để, khi đáp lại lời mời gọi cộng tác của chúng ta với Thiên Chúa và với mọi người thành tâm thiện chí để làm thăng tiến sự đồng tâm nhất trí, chúng ta biết kháng cự lại những cám dỗ xúi giục mình hành xử theo cách không xứng với tư cách làm người của chúng ta.

With the slaughter of at least 145 schoolchildren and teachers at a school in Peshawar, Pakistan, on Tuesday, the Taliban took its grisly war against the state to a more horrific place.

The massacre by the Pakistani Taliban, which has carried out increasingly deadly attacks in recent years, should prompt the country’s military and political leaders to reconsider their conflicted approach to the insurgency that is threatening the state’s survival.

What the people of the Amazon know that you don’t

“The greatest and most endangered species in the Amazon rainforest is not the jaguar or the harpy eagle,” says Mark Plotkin, “It’s the isolated and uncontacted tribes.” In an energetic and sobering talk, the ethnobotanist brings us into the world of the forest’s indigenous tribes and the incredible medicinal plants that their shamans use to heal. He outlines the challenges and perils that are endangering them — and their wisdom — and urges us to protect this irreplaceable repository of knowledge.

Former Pro-GMO Scientist Speaks Out On The Real Dangers of Genetically Engineered Food

I retired 10 years ago after a long career as a research scientist for Agriculture Canada. When I was on the payroll, I was the designated scientist of my institute to address public groups and reassure them that genetically engineered crops and foods were safe. There is, however, a growing body of scientific research – done mostly in Europe, Russia, and other countries – showing that diets containing engineered corn or soya cause serious health problems in laboratory mice and rats.I don’t know if I was passionate about it but I was knowledgeable. I defended the side of technological advance, of science and progress. Continue reading Former Pro-GMO Scientist Speaks Out On The Real Dangers of Genetically Engineered Food

Government to Ordained Ministers: Celebrate Same-Sex Wedding or Go to Jail

Heritage Foundation

For years, those in favor of same-sex marriage have argued that all Americans should be free to live as they choose. And yet in countless cases, the government has coerced those who simply wish to be free to live in accordance with their belief that marriage is the union of a man and a woman.

Ministers face a 180-day jail term and $1,000 fine for each day they decline to celebrate the same-sex wedding.

Just this weekend, a case has arisen in Idaho, where city officials have told ordained ministers they have to celebrate same-sex weddings or face fines and jail time. Continue reading Government to Ordained Ministers: Celebrate Same-Sex Wedding or Go to Jail
