欧州の熱波
Two dead as 'Lucifer' heat wave hits Italy, eastern Europe http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-08-05/lucifer-heat-wave-holds-italy-eastern-europe-in-fiery-grip/8776788 @ABCNewsさんから
Swathes of southern and eastern Europe have sweltered in temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius in a heat wave nicknamed "Lucifer", which has killed at least two people across the region.
Italy and the Balkans were worst affected, though areas as far north as southern Poland also basked in abnormally hot temperatures, and European weather hub Meteoalarm issued its highest grade "red" warnings for 10 countries.
At least two people have died from the heat ― one in Romania and one in Poland ― and many more have been taken to hospital suffering from sunstroke and other heat-related conditions.
Bosnian officials said the heat wave and drought had nearly halved agricultural output, which accounts for 10 percent of the country's economic output.
Neighbouring Serbia reported a similar situation and experts said drought could slash corn and soybean production by a third.

ドイツ車カルテル
The Cartel: Collusion Between Germany's Biggest Carmakers
http://spon.de/ae1Nj via @SPIEGELONLINE
Sometimes big things are hidden behind much smaller things. For instance, one of the biggest secrets of the German automotive industry lies behind the mechanism that opens and closes a convertible top at the push of a button.
Reporting by DER SPIEGEL into the anti-cartel authorities in Brussels and Bonn, and automakers in Stuttgart, Munich and Wolfsburg, and conversations with current and former executives, provide a previously unknown image of Germany's most important industry. The conclusion is that Daimler, BMW, Audi, Porsche and Volkswagen often no longer compete with one another. Instead, they secretly cooperate, very closely, in fact, in the same way one would normally expect of the subsidiaries of a single company to work together, as something like a "German Cars Inc." -- or a cartel.

WW3に向かっているか(抜粋)
Are we sleepwalking to World War III?
Australia is plunging headlong into catastrophe and we are utterly unprepared. In fact, we may be past the time when we can prepare.
The time-bomb is ticking and it will explode in our lifetimes.
All certainty will be lost, our economy will be devastated, our land seized, our system of government upended.
This isn't mere idle speculation or the rantings of a doomsday cult, this is the warning from a man who has made it his life's work to prepare for just this scenario.
Admiral Chris Barrie was chief of Australia's Defence Force between 1998 and 2002.

A miscalculation or misunderstanding, he said, could tip us over the edge, countries would be backed into corners and we have no way right now of talking our way out.
This is a warning that comes from our past, and if unheeded, will shatter our future.
"History doesn't repeat but it does rhyme."

On the current trajectory, Allison says, war is "not just possible, but much more likely than currently recognised".
Any clash between the US and China is potentially catastrophic, but as much as we may try to wish it away, right now military strategists in Beijing and Washington are preparing for just an eventuality.
Global think tank the Rand Corporation prepared a report in 2015 for the American military, its title could not have been more direct ― War with China: Thinking Through the Unthinkable.
It concluded that China would suffer greater casualties than the US if war was to break out now. However, it cautioned, that as China's military muscle increased so would the prospect of a prolonged destructive war.

The entire Asia region is a tinderbox.
Historian Michael Auslan, thinks Asia is so potentially unstable and insecure that he has questioned the very future of the region in his new book, The End of the Asian Century.

Allison concludes with a quote not from Thucydides but Shakespeare, our destiny lies "not in our stars, but in ourselves".
戦争の崖っぷちまで、我々は自分の足で歩いて来ているのです。
S.A.氏はその先導役です。獣医学部どころではない規模の、お友だちへの利益誘導によって、アジアは崩壊寸前なのです。

Japan PM Abe denies favors for friend amid falling support
http://reut.rs/2uqbRfH
TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, his ratings sinking over a suspected cronyism scandal, said on Monday he had never instructed that preferential treatment be given to a long-time friend and that his friend had never lobbied for favors.
Abe and his aides have repeatedly denied intervening to help Kake Gakuen (Kake Educational Institution) win approval for a veterinary school in a special economic zone. Its director, Kotaro Kake, is a friend of Abe.

サイコパスは治療可能か
Psychopaths: Mean, misunderstood, and mistreated?
http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11894195
Does your ex drink too much, act impulsively and seem to fear nothing? Turns out, they could be a psychopath.
What is a psychopath and how would you identify one?
Even among scientists there's a lot of controversy about what's in and what's out in regard to the definition. You can think of psychopathy as an enduring type of personality disorder in which people have quite distinctive characteristics that can be harmful both to them and others. But there is also quite widespread acceptance that some aspects of psychopathy can be quite positive ... So it's more of a mixed picture of positive and negative characteristics.
There are three different clusters of characteristics ... meanness, boldness and disinhibition. This is known as the Triarchic model of psychopathy, developed by Christopher Patrick. It's gaining some acceptance because of its usefulness.

NEW YORK: US entrepreneur Elon Musk said Thursday he’d received tentative approval from the government to build a conceptual “hyperloop” system that would blast passenger pods down vacuum-sealed tubes from New York to Washington at near supersonic speeds.

Facing a barrage of skepticism, Musk, who has been known to over-promise in his announcements, clarified: “Still a lot of work needed to receive formal approval, but am optimistic that will occur rapidly,” urging people to lobby their representatives.

イタリアの若者の貧困率上昇
Poverty among Italy’s young has tripled over last 11 years

According to official figures, 4.7 million Italians live in absolute poverty. The number is 144,000 up on 2015
Poverty remains high in Italy, and is slightly up on 2015, with larger families the worst hit. According to figures published by Italian statistics institute ISTAT, 1.619m Italian families were living in absolute poverty in 2016, for a total of 4.742m people, 144,000 more than in 2015. In relation to the number of households (25.7m) and resident population (60m), 6.3% of households were living in conditions of absolute poverty (compared to 6.1% in 2015). This amounted to 7.9% of the population (7.6% in 2015). For ISTAT, absolute poverty means being unable to buy a basket of goods and services “essential to a minimum acceptable standard of living”, which varies according to size of family, age and geographical location

‘Nuclear Nine’ and the NPT - The Manila Times Online
http://www.manilatimes.net/nuclear-nine-npt/338464/
THEY who hold the gold make the rules.
True, especially in the case of the United States, Russia, Britain, China, France, India, Pakistan, North Korea and Israel, which are the nine countries in the world that possess nuclear weapons.

At best, the NPT is and can only be a deterrent against the leader of any of the nine countries who might get stupid or crazy enough to press the button that would send the rest of the world to kingdom come.

The NPT is a joke partly because it only prohibits developing and stockpiling of nuclear weapons; it does not carry a provision for recall or destruction of such weapons that at present may be in the nuclear depots of the Nuclear Nine.

日本では人権侵害が常態化していると報じられています。
Japan’s mental health services have previously been criticised for institutionalising too many patients and breaching their human rights.
A 2013 study found Japanese people with mental health conditions faced greater stigmatisation than in many other areas of the world.
The majority of the public keep a greater social distance from people with mental illness, it said, while two-thirds of people with mental health disorders never seek treatment because of the stigma.
