Post-Project Post

Well… I could definitely rant for a while on just about anything regarding this project. I was gathering together about a third of my pictures/videos for the master slideshow that I would show everybody. I did this with my pictures from my trip two years ago, but I had to continuously trim the amount of …

Japan’s Suicide Rate

“Japan has the eighth highest suicide rate in the world, according to the World Health Organization.” AP reported that today in an article that mentioned how frequent suicides by toxic fumes are in Japan. It is saddening to hear that Japan’s suicide rate is so high-one of the highest for a first-world country. One may …

Death of a Dream-6 people in one family killed

Just horrifying news out of LA today-six people are dead in what is being called a murder-suicide. A man going suffering from the financial crisis decided recently to kill all his family members and then himself. He shot them in their sleep, some multiple times before killing himself.

A Fire Inside: 15 People Die in Japan Porn Store

As big as this was in Japan, I don’t think people are regarding it as more negative than the story of the man who shot several in Akihabara this past summer. More people died in this incident, even. But maybe I am getting ahead of myself. The links to the story are at the bottom, but …

Japan One

That title means a lot of things to me. I decided I would blog rather randomly, perhaps rantingly, so I thought of a random title. There are a lot of things I gather. For one (no pun intended), there are only about one percent Christian here. That’s a big deal to me. Many people believe …

Pray for Japan’s Suicide Rate

Don’t read this if you just ate… I frequently read AP, and flip to Asia World News. Occasionally, they mention Japan. Unfortunately, many times it is about a suicide. I believe I recently talked about how Japanese have found a new way to kill themselves. It involves mixing fumes and such. One farmer decided to …

Hong Kong Bus Crash

“In a May 1 story about a bus crash in Hong Kong, The Associated Press, relying on information from local police, erroneously reported that the accident victims belonged to a Christian group. The victims were members of the Shinji Shumeikai, a non-Christian Japanese spiritual group.” This is an interesting thing to read. I guess I …

Japan’s Suicide Methodology

“…the Japanese media tends to focus on the method young people are using to kill themselves, not on the motives.” -Michael Zielenziger I like to start my blog posts with quotes, huh? I guess those give me motivation. Well, just reading on a new type of suicide, which I guess involves death by household detergent …
