Thread 1/ #Typhoon Hagibis made landfall in #Japan and has caused widespread flooding with human lives lost. Spare a thought for those in Japan who need help at present. #Fukushima Daiichi. But some are using this storm to promote scientific misinformation
2/ I am seeing posts that link the #radioactive contamination/decay heat from #Fukushima Daiichi & the development of tropical cyclones like #Hagibis and going so far as to say the human caused global warming is not like to #CO2 but nuclear fallout/contamination
3/ The argument goes something like this and is summarized in a blog I posted some time ago @dailykos dailykos.com/stories/2016/1…:
1. Fukushima released radionuclides to the environment with much of the contamination ending up in the Pacific Ocean
2. Isotopes generate heat on decay

A leading five star hotel in #India had invited Mr. Masai Imai from Japan to hold a workshop for its staff.
The staff were very skeptical - the hotel is doing excellent business, this person from #Japan has no exposure to hotel industry - what exactly is he going to teach?

But everybody gathered as planned for the workshop in the conference hall sharp at 9 am.
Mr.Masai was introduced to them;a not so impressive personality,nor the English all that good;spoke as if he was first formulating each sentence in Japanese & then translating it into rather clumsy English.

#HAGIBIS #TYPHOON COMING TO #JAPAN

In #Tokyo's #Shibuya ward, you notice little of the threatening storm that is approaching

Until you want to get water or cash

None of the stores I visited had large water bottles (even though they bought extra stock), ATM's had people waiting
#HAGIBIS #TYPHOON COMING TO #JAPAN

Apparently there also many stores where far more than water has been sold out

#Tokyo and surrounding areas seem to be getting ready for something serious

#HAGIBIS #TYPHOON COMING TO #JAPAN

Weather warnings by the Japan Meteorological Agency as of 17:39 JST on Oct 11

The typhoon is not expected in Tokyo until Saturday

Moon Jae-in's F-35A check-in yesterday gets a reply. #NorthKorea
Single missile is interesting. They've tended to come in pairs this year.
Also, given the Trump administration's willingness to brush aside the short-range testing this year, no cost in testing for upcoming working-level talks.

@dancohen3000 @For2000years The Soviet Union's armed forces were responsible for 88% of Nazi Wehrmacht's military deaths - That's nearly 9:10... & gives more reality to weight of combat in the East
We are awash in #USMilitary propaganda about #OmahaBeach & #BattleoftheBulge but the Soviets are forgotten!
@dancohen3000 @For2000years 2. The same applies to fighting #Japan - The Final Battlefield was #Manchuria where the Soviets destroyed a Japanese army of 1M in a matter of days & were threatening to invade Hokkaido when Japan surrendered - This is also forgotten!
#America achieved far less than they claim!
@dancohen3000 @For2000years 3. Russia did more to win #WW2 than has been told by the west & even the #Japanese are now asking questions.
In reality the Japanese Emperor & Military were more afraid of the Soviets invading than they were of #Nuks.

"Modi’s external balancing game is either shrewd and ambitious or naive and dangerous, depending on whom in Delhi you speak to."

Here's a long THREAD with annotated quotes from my recent strategic-geostrategy essay...
brookings.edu/opinions/is-mo…
Every few months or so, I get out of my "neighbourhood" shell and take a look at the big picture of India's foreign policy. This 5k words essay focuses on the big Delhi debate: how should India (re)align in an changing world order? I analyze a range of positions... highlights:
"The world order’s volatility has animated the eternal Indian #debate about the tactical terms of strategic diversification ...how exactly should Delhi balance these — competing/conflicting—friends, partners, and allies into a bundle that enhances India’s strategic autonomy?"

Thread: #Japan to Beef Up Military With Money for Aircraft Carrier, #US Jet Fighters - Defense Ministry is seeking $50.3 billion for the next fiscal year, up 1.2% from expected spending in the current year @9b3OR2qdITMbDcd 👍💪🇯🇵💪👍 wsj.com/articles/japan…
Japan plans to start converting a destroyer next year into its first post-World War II aircraft carrier and make its first payment for Lockheed Martin Corp. F-35B jet fighters that can take off from the ship.
Under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Japan has steadily raised defense spending, citing rising security challenges from regional powers such as China and North Korea. President Trump has also pressured Japan to spend more on U.S. military hardware.

#US verbal broadside at Seoul over axing of pact on US-sponsored intelligence-sharing pact with Japan - Seoul shoots back, cites ‘national interest’ to justify its feud with #Japan @9b3OR2qdITMbDcd asiatimes.com/2019/08/articl…
American officials deployed unusually harsh language toward South Korea’s Moon Jae-in administration after Seoul on Thursday announced that it was terminating GSOMIA, a US-sponsored intelligence-sharing pact with Japan.
As relations between Seoul and Tokyo, the two key US allies in Northeast Asia, continued to plummet, some warned darkly that the unilateral cancellation of the agreement could be the start of an irreversible fracture in US-led security efforts in the region.

This opinion piece by a few Ozzies is so full of contorted thinking & debunked logic it is worthy of a @Clive_Bates 13K word smack-down, but I expect he's busy on other things so I'll post some brief points.

"Maternal smoking and intrauterine exposure to tobacco smoke and nicotine have been linked.."
Nicely snuck #nicotine in there. Onya!
If U don't understand that CO and tar are largest source of harm from #tobacco #SMOKE then perhaps U should stay in the shallow end of the pool.
"These devices still deliver nicotine .."
You say that like it's a bad thing.
The evidence to support that needs to be balanced by evidence of healthful effects re Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, Dementia, ADHD, Schizophrenia..

The #China/ #SinoAfrica containment narrative is not useful for analyzing #Japan-#Africa development relations. Using a tug-of-war language to paint a🇨🇳-🇯🇵 standoff shows how much the🇺🇸- 🇨🇳rivalry colors #Africa's partnerships. 🇯🇵's #TICAD7 is a very different product from #FOCAC
#TICAD started in 1993, many moons before #FOCAC. #Japan did get inspired by #China's forum model and changed from meeting every 5 years to now every 3. TICAD also recently started alternating between #Japan and an #Africa|n hosts (like FOCAC) but
Using a zero-sum narrative doesn't work simply because there's a lot of room for #TICAD, #FOCAC, #India, #Russia.. What it shows tho is that the Forum Model is a favored #diplomacy w/ #Africa platform. Hosting public officials, organizing banquets, seminars, building connections

The Japanese Ministry of Defense has taken the decision on Friday, August 16, 2019, the decision to acquire 42 F-35B STOVL aircraft to strengthen the country’s air defense capabilities on its southern islands.
The F-35B will be acquired according to a plan to renovate the Maritime Self-Defense Force’s Izumo-class helicopter carriers into de facto aircraft carriers to host the F-35Bs.

Panel 2 at the MANE Forum: A flourishing era of Asian #mediation.

Moderator: Mr Viswa Sadasivan
Panellists: Mr Akira Kawamura, Mr Jerry Zhang, Ms Laila T Ollapally, Prof Hi-Taek Shin, Mr George Lim SC.

George is an IMI Board member, and Laila represents CAMP, an IMI QAP.
Akira Kawamura re ADR in Japan: "Now we have a game-changer.".

The Kyoto centre:
1. Provides international mediation facilities
2. Is a centre for mediation research and education

On the verge of opening a new similar centre in Tokyo.
#mediation #arbitration #Japan
Laila T Ollapally - unless mediation is as lucrative as other forms of dispute resolution, we're not going to attract the best candidates.

#mediation #mediators

"The second wave of the mediation revolution is in our DNA."

I’m particular I liked your characterisation of #DragonBear as a “temporary asymmetric relationship”. But some questions too:
@vtchakarova @amlivemon @Halsrethink @LibrariumViews @JamesGRickards @gbponz @BaldingsWorld @C_Barraud @BcnFox @MacaesBruno @chigrl @RobertMCutler @GrayConnolly @DrPippaM @Kostian_V @wangxiangweihk @IndoPac_Info @michaeltanchum 1) is the main common denominator of #Dragonbear really the exclusion of #US & #EU from #Eurasia (all very Mackinder!)? Are #China’s & #Russia’s #geopolitics the same? Does not Russia aim to exclude while China aims to bridge?
@vtchakarova @amlivemon @Halsrethink @LibrariumViews @JamesGRickards @gbponz @BaldingsWorld @C_Barraud @BcnFox @MacaesBruno @chigrl @RobertMCutler @GrayConnolly @DrPippaM @Kostian_V @wangxiangweihk @IndoPac_Info @michaeltanchum 2) Does #China really need #Russia know how in #diplomacy & #defence? I spent 5 years dealing with Chinese diplomacy, and it has nothing to learn from Russia. I suspect the day’s when China learnt from Russian military and military technology are also long gone
