 インドネシアの大衆歌謡Dangdutがどんどん俗悪になってきているとして、大衆とイスラム教のお歴々との間で軋轢が生じているってさ。

 その「俗悪化」の最先端を行くJulia Perez嬢の雄姿をどーぞ。

7歳の娘にダイエットを強いるNY在住の「名士」たる母親の是非をめぐって米国で大議論が起きている。

≫下掲の「事件」も、いかにもそんな維新の会(代表橋下大阪市長)らしい、ひでえ話だよねえ。≪(コラム#5385。太田)

 平均的な世論は太田さんのような理性的な精査をしないから、なんとなく積極的に(みんなが社会的なガンであると感じる)勢力(左翼教師や不正生活保護受給者)との対立軸をつくった・・・という空気で満足しているのではないでしょうか?
 日本のリーダー、橋下大阪市長が断トツ21.4% 2位は石原都知事

 電気電子産業に限らず日本経済にもリーダーたる人材的な枯渇が発生している理由に思い当たる調査がありましたのでどうぞ。

 軍隊経験者は退役後に民間に戻ると、軍隊経験がない民間人と比較して性格が無愛想になる傾向はあるが、一方でビジネスを成功に導くのために不可欠なことであれば、それがあまり支持されず人気のない決断でも躊躇しないで決断していく能力に長けている。↓

 Study: Military service makes men grumpier・・・
 Still, there is an upside, Jackson added. “People with lower levels of agreeableness are often more likely to fight their way up the corporate ladder and make the sometimes unpopular decisions that can be necessary for business success,” he said.

 イスラエルは、ならず者国家のアゼルバイジャンとつるんでるみたいだね。
 よって、イスラエルの対イラン攻撃は、これまで想定されてきたよりもはるかに容易に実行できるってわけ。↓

 ・・・the "submerged" aspect of the Israeli-Azerbaijani alliance -- the security cooperation between the two countries -- is heightening the risks of an Israeli strike on Iran.・・・
 <イスラエル、アゼルバイジャンの飛行場を一つ買ったらしいってさ。↓>
 Israel has recently been granted access to airbases on Iran's northern border.<i.e. t>he Israelis have bought an airfield・・・
 The Azeri military has four abandoned, Soviet-era airfields that would potentially be available to the Israelis, as well as four airbases for their own aircraft・・・
 Using airbases in Azerbaijan would ensure that Israel would not have to rely on its modest fleet of air refuelers or on its refueling expertise, which <is> pretty minimal.・・・They're just not very good at it.・・・
 <空中給油やらなくても対イラン攻撃ができるし、爆弾搭載量も増やせる。↓>
 ・・・the more distance a fighter-bomber is required to travel, the more fuel it will need and the fewer weapons it can carry. Shortening the distance adds firepower, and enhances the chances for a successful strike.・・・
 <リスキーだが、イスラエルとの経済(石油)・軍事協力はアゼルバイジャンにとってはオイシイ話。↓>
 Azerbaijan clearly profits from its deepening relationship with Israel. The Jewish state is the second largest customer for Azeri oil -shipped through the Baku-Tibilisi-Ceyhan pipeline -- and its military trade allows Azerbaijan to upgrade its military after the Organization for Cooperation and Security in Europe (OSCE) slapped it with an arms embargo after its six-year undeclared war with Armenia over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region. Finally, modernizing the Azeri military sends a clear signal to Iran that interference in Azerbaijan could be costly.・・・

 黒人青年射殺事件の続きだ。↓

 <目撃者は、事件の始めと終わりは目撃していないんだって。↓>
 ・・・None of the witnesses have said they saw the beginning of the altercation. None said they saw the shot that ended it. ・・・
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/mar/28/trayvon-martin-case-one-month-on
 <現地警察は、一時拘束した「白人」のビデオを公開したが、怪我をおってるようには見えない。↓>
 Sanford police marched a handcuffed George Zimmerman into police headquarters the night he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, and a video shot by a security camera picked up no obvious sign of injury to the Neighborhood Watch volunteer.・・・
http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-naw-zimmerman-video-20120329,0,6127197.story
 <この「白人」、黒人の友人も多かったんだって。↓>
 ・・・Friends and family have said that Zimmerman, who is half-Peruvian, has black friends and even family members, and was not motivated by prejudice.
 <彼、近所の評判はどちらかというと大変良かったんだとも。↓>
 A portrait is emerging of a man whose life, though pocked with allegations of aggressive behavior, was also marked by the kind of neighborhood-level engagement — he helped plan block parties — that social scientists have argued are key to combating the atomization and alienation of suburban life.・・・

 <これに対し、「白人」や現地警察の側を批判する意見も引き続き出ている。
 南北戦争前の逃亡奴隷法が生きてた頃を彷彿とさせるってんだな。↓>
 ・・・Fla., police department・・・<'s> explanation bears an eerie resemblance to cases brought under the Fugitive Slave Law・・・of 1793・・・during the Antebellum period. ・・・
 That law authorized slave owners residing in one state to enter another state to recapture their property.・・・

 元米SEALの一員で狙撃手だった男(このたび本を出した)のインタビューだ。↓

 <イラクで狙撃で160人殺害した伝説的な男だとよ。↓>
 ・・・Chris Kyle is a former United States Navy SEAL・・・ He made 160 confirmed kills (out of 255 claimed) while serving in Iraq.・・・
 <狙撃手って地球の湾曲もちゃんと計算機で計算して狙撃すんだね。↓>
 <I> must take into account the Earth's curvature・・・sniper uses a hand-held ballistic computer to calculate all that. ・・・
 <最初の狙撃成功は、子供を弾除けにした女性が手りゅう弾を持って米軍に近づいてきた時のもの。↓>
 ・・・<my> first sniper kill・・・was in 2003 in front of a marine base in the race to Baghdad. She wanted to attack us and came at us with a grenade and her young son in front of her. I shot her to stop her. I hated her for endangering all our lives. I hated her for making me kill a woman. She showed no respect for human life. I did not shoot the kid. She dropped the grenade when hit and it blew him up. ・・・
 <敵はヤクを使ってた奴がよくいたって。使ってると被弾しても痛みを感じないからだと。↓>
 We often found syringes and could tell they were using meth and heroin. When I shot several people, they did not feel the first bullets. ・・・
 <従軍記者は悪い話しか書かず、しかも足手まといになるので、ホントどうしょうもないってさ。↓>
 ・・・journalists embedded・・・was a big mistake. The journalists usually just reported the bad news like accidental killings but never any good news stories like how we saved the lives of kids, built schools, protected election officials and things that won us much goodwill. Good news does not sell. Plus, I had to protect the journalists focusing on the negatives because they had no tactical training. ・・・
 <成功した狙撃の標的の最遠のは1.92km先のだったって。もっとも、世界記録(?)は2.46kmらしいけどね。↓>
 My longest shot was 2,100 yards [1.92 kilometers]. I measured it with a laser range finder. I hit a terrorist holding a rocket propelled grenade who was targeting a US convoy from a roof in a village. It was in 2008 outside Sadr City [in Baghdad]. It is the US record for the longest sniper shot in Iraq. But a sniper in the British army has a shot of 2,500 yards [2.28 kilometers] and another sniper scored one of 2,700 yards [2.46 kilometers]. ・・・
 <必ず傍らに監視兵が付いていて、狙撃に法的に問題がなかったかどうかチェックしてるんだとさ。これにゃ驚いたな。↓>
 There was a judicial inspector for every single shot - death or not. I would have to write up an extremely detailed form explaining and justifying my shot by reviewing who my target was, what he was doing, wearing, even the grain of the bullet.・・・

 一日11時間超座ってた人間は、4時間未満の人間に比べて、3年以内に死ぬ可能性が40%高いんだって。ギクッ!↓
