Why robots will be granted a license to kill, in Japan and everywhere else

japantimes.co.jp — A while back I attended a robot expo in Tokyo. It was actually kind of depressing. Robots are supposed to be sexy, but much of the technology on display was for old people - you know, intelligent dolls that sense when a dementia patient is trying to get out of bed, engaging them in simple conversation long enough for a human helper to arrive - that sort of thing.

Badges of honor: what Japan's legal lapel pins really mean

japantimes.co.jp — I finally have a lapel badge. After almost two decades of working in Japan-related law jobs, this is a big deal. You have probably noticed a lot of Japanese men (and, increasingly, women) in suits with pin badges in their lapels. Some may even bear familiar logos: JR, Aeon, Mizuho and so on.

Beyond the Bell:

massbudget.org — By Colin A. Jones, Beyond the Bell The promise of a high-quality education leading to opportunity and shared prosperity for all children is a deeply held value in Massachusetts.

ukcatalogue.oup.com — The story of how we learned to smile. A unique and untold story about a facial expression at the heart of modern western civilization.

The Smile Revolution: In Eighteenth Century Paris: Colin Jones: 9780198715818: Books

amazon.ca — You could be forgiven for thinking that the smile has no history; it has always been the same. However, just as different cultures in our own day have different rules about smiling, so did different societies in the past.

Think you've got rights as a foreigner in Japan? Well, it's complicated

japantimes.co.jp — If you imagine paying taxes in Japan entitles you to welfare, you may want to take a seat "Welfare ruling stuns foreigners." That was the headline to The Japan Times On Sunday's July 20 lead story about the Supreme Court's ruling a couple of days earlier that non-Japanese residents do not have a right to access the nation's welfare system.
