Pseudo-Random Thoughts

Too Funny not to share.

(Or perhaps too symbolic.)

Japan's Temporary Solution To Its Demographic Problem — Foreign Workers:  Yesterday, I watched an hour-long program on NHK World, describing Japan's demographic problem, an aging population, and their temporary solution to it, foreign workers.  (Sorry, no link; I searched for some minutes but couldn't find the program.  However, I found enough Grand Sumo highlights to satisfy almost everyone.)

At least for now, you can find some numbers here, which will show you how fast the number of foreign workers in Japan is growing, almost 100,000 a year increase over the last five years.

If I understood the program correctly. many of the foreign workers are there on five-year "technical intern" visas, so Japanese employers have to replace them continuously, just to stay even.

(Americans may find this surprising:  Some Japanese are beginning to worry that they will not be able to attract the workers they need because of competition from nations like Taiwan.  One small Japanese city has even put up a statue of Ho Chi Minh, hoping to make their Vietnamese workers feel at home.)

The Japanese are aware that this solution can not work forever, but don't seem to have any better ideas.  Perhaps they hope to buy enough time to think of something more permanent.

(Axios has some fine posts on this general problem, though you will have to hurry to see them.

Demography of Japan)

The Carnegie Team Was Looking For A New Planet; They Found Twelve New Moons:  All orbiting Jupiter.
Twelve new moons orbiting Jupiter have been found—11 “normal” outer moons, and one that they’re calling an “oddball.”  This brings Jupiter’s total number of known moons to a whopping 79—the most of any planet in our Solar System.

A team led by Carnegie’s Scott S. Sheppard first spotted the moons in the spring of 2017 while they were looking for very distant Solar System objects as part of the hunt for a possible massive planet far beyond Pluto.
The "oddball" is likely to be named "Valetudo", and may be temporary.
[S/2016 J 2] has a prograde orbit, but it crosses paths with several moons that have retrograde orbits and may in the future collide with them.[5]
Most likely, a similar search would find more moons of Saturn.

What I Conclude from this.

Is that Paul Ryan really needs a few jokes these days.

It Doesn't Surprise Me To Learn That Devin Nunes may have crossed some ethical lines.
Rep. Devin Nunes used political donations to pay for nearly $15,000 in tickets to Boston Celtics basketball games as well as winery tours and lavish trips to Las Vegas, according to reports from the Federal Election Commission and two nonpartisan watchdog groups.

Nunes, R-Calif., has reportedly been a Celtics fan since high school, though he grew up in Tulare, California.  He used the money from his political action committee last year on three occasions to buy tickets.
But it does surprise me that a man who grew up in the Central Valley would be a Celtics fan.  (Maybe because they aren't the Los Angeles Lakers?)

(If I were in his district, I would suggest that he retire so he can watch even more Celtics games.

Devin Nunes)

Worth Reading:  Jim Geraghty's column, "Obama Speech in South Africa Slams Habits That Made His Career", reminding us all that Barack Obama's fine words in South Africa are often inconsistent with his record.

For instance, in the speech Obama opposed identity politics; in office he made Al Sharpton his “go-to man on race”.

More Trump Drag On The Republican Party?  That's one interpretation of these shifts, in Illinois, Iowa, and Arizona.

Not the only possible interpretation, but, for now, the most plausible one.

(Barack Obama was a disaster for the Democratic Party.  As far as I can tell, approximately zero Democrats blame him for all those losses.)

She Looks Perfect:  That was my reaction to this picture of the accused Russian agent, Maria Butina.

Perfect, that is, if she was trying to look as little like a Russia agent as possible.

Which she probably was.

(I am guessing that almost any American woman could explain how Butina's clothes choices contribute to that innocent look.)

Paddy Power Changes The Odds On Impeachment:  By a lot.
A major European bookmaker has dramatically slashed the odds that President Donald Trump will be impeached following his disastrous summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

According to Yahoo Uk, the Irish bookmaking outfit Paddy Power has cut the odds on a Trump impeachment from 8-1 to 2-1.   This means that before the summit, Paddy Power put the chances of Trump being impeached at approximately one out of nine.  Now?  The chances are roughly one in three.

A Paddy Power spokesperson told Yahoo UK that the odds change was a direct result of post-summit action taken on the wager.
This strikes me as a publicity stunt, a clever one, but still just a stunt.

(The British bettors at Betfair appear to agree with me.

I would say that the chance that he will be impeached this year is close to zero, and that the chance that he will be impeached in 2019 or 2020 — even assuming the Democrats win control of the House — is less than 10 percent.)

Brett Kavanaugh Is "One Great Guy"  That's according to one of his neighbors, who said that when interviewed by the Washington Post.

As Patterico says, that's not what's most important in choosing a judge:
Although a judge’s intellect, judicial philosophy, clarity of writing, fidelity to constitutional principle, and temperament are more important to his position on the Supreme Court than stories like this, it’s good to know that Kavanaugh seems like a nice guy.
But it does tell us something about the man's character.

And may make it just a little easier to confirm him.

Progress Against Trachoma:  Even in some of the poorest countries in the world.
Quietly, in the shadow of better-known diseases like Ebola, AIDS and malaria, the 20-year battle against trachoma is chalking up impressive victories.

These successes, experts say, show the wisdom of advocating and enforcing basic public health practices, rather than waiting for a miracle cure or a new vaccine.

They are also a testament to the unheralded but steady generosity of Americans.
Since the campaign began, five nations, Cambodia, Laos, Mexico, Morocco, and Oman, eliminated the disease as a public health problem, according to the World Health Organization.  This year, two more nations, Nepal and Ghana, joined those five.

You will note that none of those nations is wealthy, or famous for being well governed.

Trachoma is the biggest infectious cause of blindness in the world, and a very nasty disease.

(Donald McNeil even gives a little credit to the George W. Bush administration, something he doesn't always do.)

Definitely Worth Reading:  This interview, "Former CIA Director Hayden Tells Mediaite What Worries Him Most About Insane Trump-Putin Presser".
John Ziegler:   General Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and author of the new book The Assault on Intelligence, thanks so much for joining me.  I’m quite sure that you saw the joint press conference between President Trump and Vladimir Putin.  Obviously, it’s not too often that we can just ask what’s your reaction, but why don’t we just start with that?

Gen. Hayden:   For the first 80% of it, if I had to score it I would say Putin was ahead on points.  There were no knockdowns.  There were no cuts above the eye.  I was preparing my thoughts to say tonight it was okay.  I was fearful about the summit, but I think there’s some positive things here.  Then we got this nuclear denotation at the end that blew all those judgements away because of a very difficult, hot and insightful [question] from an American newsman that he tossed at both presidents about what the Russians did during the 2016 campaign and elections.  At that point I think it’s fair to describe that for President Trump, in my view, all the wheels began to fly off, John.
What I like most about the interview is how calm and judicious Hayden is in answering the questions.

(I gather that, earlier today, Trump tried to repair some of the damage he had done, but I didn't watch his latest show.)

Trump And Putin Tied On The First Move In the Helsinki Meeting:  Each proved that he could be rude.
In a bit of gamesmanship, Putin arrived in Helsinki about a half-hour late, while Trump didn’t depart the resort home where he was meeting with advisers for the summit until after the Russian leader arrived at the presidential palace.  The meeting was delayed about an hour as a result.
Assuming the account is accurate, that gives me a little hope, a little reason to believe that Putin can't always bully Trump.

(One of the things I dislike about Barack Obama is that he so often uses that late ploy; one of the things I like about George W. Bush is that he doesn't.)

Trump's Performance In Helsinki Is Not Getting Rave Reviews:  Even from some who ordinarily support him.   (For example.)

It is always interesting when a politician does something so against his own interests — for good or ill.  And so it is natural to ask why Trump did something that almost any political operative would tell Trump not to do.  (In a similar way, it is fascinating that Hillary Clinton set up that private server, with all the risks to her, as well as the nation.)

Part of the explanation for Trump's performance is that he has been out-foxed by Vladimir Putin, just as I predicted last year.

Putin was able to manipulate Trump because he understands Trump's weaknesses.  I think the folks at Axios — sorry, no link — had it right when they said that Trump is simply unable to accept the fact of Russian meddling in our election because that puts the legitimacy of Trump's election in doubt.

(For the record:  I don't know what difference, net, the Russian interference may have made, don't even know whether it is possible to estimate their effect, with the data that is available.

Nor do I have a strong opinion on Trump's long history of contacts with Russia.

I realize both of those are unsatisfactory, and it probably doesn't matter much that they are unsatisfactory to me as well as you.

But often honesty requires admitting uncertainty.)

How Much Is A "Ton" Of Money?  There is a certain kind of person — me, for instance — who, when told that they can save a "ton" of money on a purchase, will start wondering just how much a ton of money is worth.

Or, to be more specific, what the minimum amount in American money is, which would be a ton of pennies.

That's a problem that most of you can do in your heads, if you remember what a penny weighs, and make one reasonable assumption.

I had to look up what a penny weighs: 2.5 grams.  After I did so, I realized that I could simplify the problem by assuming the ad was referring to a metric ton, 1,000 kilograms.

The rest is left as an exercise.

(The ad was for a sale on new RVs.  You can decide for yourself whether a ton is a great discount.

As I think I have mentioned before, the word "ton" has a surprising origin.)
