“Calls are growing domestically that Japan should be allowed to exercise the right to collective self-defense, and pacifism faces a huge danger. We hope to make an appeal for the magnificence of Article 9 at home and abroad.”
The Nobel Prize Committee has officially nominated war-renouncing Article 9 of the Constitution as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize, a civic group said Friday. The executive committee ...

We have an after-story. We have tried to keep our eyes on the conduct by Shiga prefectural  government, suspecting that they will secretly carry them to Mie or Aichi prefecture. The governor of Shiga, Kada Yukiko, who was the head of Tomorrow Party of Japan at the last national election, is truly disappointing, with no respect of transparency.

Interesting session "International comparison of landscape appreciation" at the JpGU 2014 (Japan, end of April)!

Last year we had presentations relevant for #bcls , from cultural differences in perception to "remote experience" of forest - a way to enjoy #biodiversity even if you live far away from it!

I don't know the presentation topics for this year yet (I'm co-chairing), but I can promise one #informalgreenspace talk ;)

Things still don't add up for me in the #obokata #stap case.

I have no idea what is really going on, but it seems odd that she would knowlingly produce falsified results, submit it to #nature of all places, be dragged through the media as SCIENCE GIRL, then be dragged through the media as BAD SCIENCE GIRL etc., get a verdict of scientific misconduct from her institute, then appeal the decision and STILL say her results are real?

The paper also has seven co-authors - sure, senior researchers get their names on papers without doing anything all the time, but it seems unlikely they managed to get their names on a nature paper without knowing anything about the contents. Not to mention the rigorous peer review that was surely performed (cough).

This tweet (https://twitter.com/nippon_en/status/453755779196002304) also claims she contacted Nature in February to inform them about problems with the images. That in itself would raise some questions about claims "Nature was unable to contact her".

Vegetable patches with a great view! Located in informal greenspace on a bank of Tenpaku River near Nonami in Nagoya (Japan); early spring.

Probably should have written just "spring" - it was very cold until a few days ago though! Since Friday the cherry blossoms are out :)
