Entrepreneurs in Japan: Time to get started | The Economist

The mood among Japan’s would-be business moguls is at its most buoyant since the dotcom bubble burst a decade or so ago. A higher stockmarket is boosting the chances of a successful initial public offering. The prime minister, Shinzo Abe, is Japan’s first leader to treat entrepreneurs as something more than greedy hustlers. For the past few years Mr Horie, a brash self-publicist, has been exhibit A in the case for holding that view. But now Mr Horie says he is being welcomed back into the business world

UK mortgage approvals at highest level since financial crisis - FT.com

Strong housing data helped stoke speculation on Friday that government schemes to spur activity in the mortgage market would lead to a fresh house-price bubble.

As U.K. Parliament Debates Syria, Prospect of British Military Support Dims | TIME.com
the 450-minute parliamentary debate that kicked off with a statement by Cameron at 2.30 this afternoon will conclude with a vote on military action only “in principle,” with a second vote—after a second debate—required ahead of any such action. In place of the strong message Cameron hoped to send to Assad, he simply unleashed a fresh barrage of verbiage towards Damascus, and shot himself in the foot... In 2003, a British Prime Minister supported another U.S. President in a military intervention to topple a tyrant with a track record of killing his own people. Memories of the shambles of the Iraq war and the false claims that secured British backing for action are still painful, and nowhere more so than in Labour ranks. Tony Blair’s decision to stand shoulder-to-should with George W. Bush helped to deprive Labour first of Blair himself and then of power.
Tony Blair sons' former school ordered to change admission policy | theguardian.com
The Roman Catholic school where Tony Blair sent his sons has been ordered to change its admissions policy after a watchdog said it broke rules by giving preference to pupils whose parents spent at least three years giving practical help to their local church community. The Office of the Schools Adjudicator ruled that the London Oratory school in Fulham, a state secondary, broke a section of the official admissions code for schools intended to prevent parents from obtaining places for their offspring by giving practical or financial support to schools or associated bodies like the church. Such rules are in place to prevent non-selective schools covertly targeting an overly privileged intake.
BBC's head of human resources accused of 'corporate fraud and cronyism' quits | The Guardian

AFP: US fast food workers strike to supersize wages
Thousands of workers at McDonald's and other fast food outlets across the United States halted work Thursday in what organizers called the "largest-ever strike" to hit the $200 billion industry. Workers in 60 cities put down burgers and fries to join the fight for $15 an hour -- double what most currently earn -- and the right to form a union without retaliation, organizers said.
The Fastest-Spinning Object Ever Made - The Atlantic
Mazilu and his team needed to trap aggregations of atoms within a beam of light, and then get those atoms spinning really, really quickly. Oh, and in a vacuum. So they took calcium and concocted a tiny sphere (really tiny: about of 4 micrometers, or one-tenth of a human hair, in diameter). Then they levitated the sphere in a beam of laser light. They did all this, yes, inside a vacuum. And then! They took their tiny little sphere and whirled it -- at a rate of 600 million rotations per minute. Which (wheeeee!) must have been quite a ride for the particles inside it.

[FT]メルケル勝利でも欧州に寛容にならないドイツ  :日本経済新聞

下院にあたる連邦議会では、現在の連立相手である中道・自由主義の自由民主党(FDP)とわずかながら過半数を確保できるかもしれない。それでもSPDと緑の党が多数派を占める16の連邦州を代表する上院・連邦参議院とは常に妥協を求められることになる。 一方、連邦議会でFDPとの中道右派連合が過半数を取れなければ、メルケル氏はSPDか緑の党との連立を目指して交渉をしなければならなくなる。いずれかと連立政権を組むことは数字の上では可能だが、政治的には難しい。両党とも、メルケル氏の率いるキリスト教民主同盟(CDU)とは本来相いれないライバルだからだ。ただ欧州政策についての立場はほぼ一致している。

Is the party over for Wikileaks in Australia? - The Independent

When a party which espouses human rights and social justice appears to be in cahoots with gun nuts and neo-fascists, that’s not a good look.

And when the same party, supposedly synonymous with democracy and transparency, is accused by its own members of secretive decision-making, that could spell electoral oblivion.
