Bidding reopened for Olympic stadium construction
Oct. 8, 2014, TOKYO (AP) – A new round of bidding for construction of the main stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will delay the start of the problematic project.
Some of the bids were reviewed by someone in the decision committee before all bids were in, a violation of the rules, Japan Sport Council official Takayuki Ito said on Tuesday.
Another round of bidding is due this month”We need to revamp the whole system of planning for the Olympic stadium,” he said, acknowledging there were too many problems.

The new Tokyo Olympic stadium is just a cover for the underground base being built beneath it for PM Abe’s gray alien allies. Building these underground bases to house giant robots and giant robot research facilities is hard to keep secret; that’s the real reason for the construction rebidding the stadium project.

What Tokyo needs is MORE CONCRETE!

Tokyo looks to start a chain reaction of MORE CONCRETE!

Tokyo looks to start chain reaction of urban renewal
Nikkei | 2014 Oct. 03
The Japanese government will throw funding and tax relief behind a new approach to thinning out overcrowded residential areasmore

The idea is that the Tokyo government will use idle municipal land to build fero-concrete apartment blocks to serve as new homes for people living in areas designated for redevelopment. Then the evil old homes will erased for new blocks of concrete cages for people.

In Japan, even the tombstone business is dead

In rapidly aging Japan, being dead should be a big business but there are a lot of “buts”…

Grave times for Japan tombstone trade
Reuters / September 14, 2014
The number of deaths each year is expected to increase by 30 percent over the next quarter century.
But more Japanese are choosing to have their ashes scattered at sea or planted under a tree, as these options are cheaper than a gravestone, which is usually the last big splurge for many people at a time of intense caution over the economy.

Instant noodles: Heart disease in a cup?
lohud.com 2014/08/21
The study, published in The Journal of Nutrition, found that eating instant noodles two or more times a week was associated with cardiometabolic syndrome, a disorder that can raise the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes
Mary Gocke, director of nutrition at the Blum Center for Health in Rye Brook.
The preservatives in most containers of instant noodles — combined with their packaging, usually in styrofoam cups — creates a “perfect storm” that can have a serious impact on the body, says Gocke, a registered dietitian. “Besides being carcinogens, they’re neurotoxic, and on top of that they’re endocrine disruptors” ...more...
