NAGOYA —

Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda on Monday called on companies to raise wages in line with the central bank’s efforts to achieve 2% inflation, saying a suitable environment has already been established.

Speaking at a meeting of business leaders in Nagoya, Kuroda said, “In our view, the environment for wage increases—such as a tight labor market and high corporate profits—is certainly already well established.”

“However, it is of course up to firms’ management and labor whether to raise wages in line with the 2% inflation benchmark in anticipation of price increases of 2% as we move on,” Kuroda said.

He said the BOJ has “the capability” and the “strong will” to achieve the inflation target at the earliest possible time, adding that the bank will adjust monetary policy “without hesitation” if judged as necessary to that end.

Kuroda said given that Japan’s economy is on the road to overcoming deflation, raising wages and increasing fixed investment are necessary not only for Japan’s economy as a whole but for companies themselves. “Taking action now is a prerequisite for firms to be among the winners in the future,” he said.

On the current state of price movements, Kuroda said, “Once the effect of the decline in energy prices is excluded, the underlying trend in inflation has steadily improved.”

In October, Japan’s consumer prices fell 0.1% from a year earlier, down for the third straight month. But excluding food and energy prices, the index climbed 0.7%, according to government data released Friday.

As a risk factor, Kuroda said that increased uncertainties over the course of emerging economies could undermine business confidence in Japan and possibly lead firms to scale down investment and wage increases. Such a possibility warrants attention, he added.

Are Muslims who live in Canada living in a state of war with their host country?  Should they see other Canadians as the enemy?

The Ottawa Public Library (St. Laurent Branch) is currently holding books by Mohamed el-Ghazali, one of the most extreme of Islamcist writers who preaches violence and hate towards non-Muslims and Muslims who do not live according to his extremist view of Islam.

One of the books has the title “One Hundred Questions about Islam.”  The book has several insights such as:

  1.  If you are a Muslim living in a non-Muslim country, then you are in a state of war against your host country.
  2.  If you are a Muslim living in a non-Muslim country, then you are living with the enemy.
  3.  Only a caliphate is an acceptable form of government.
  4.  If you kill the takfir (non-Muslim/apostate) then you will go to paradise.
  5.  Women cannot work.  Nor can they leave the home without permission.
  6.  You must kill those Muslims who leave the faith.
  7.  Christians have no rights and cannot be allowed to construct churches etc.

Of note, a search of books on Islam at the St. Laurent branch revealed more violent texts including others by el-Ghazali.  There were no books there that expressed a historical view of Islam nor any books on the modernization of Islam.

Security chief Lai Tung-kwok said the government is seriously concerned about the use of drones and will look into overseas laws when deciding on legislation to control their use.

“Regulating drones is the duty of the Civil Aviation Department. I believe if controls are necessary, they will explain to the public at the appropriate time,” Lai, the secretary for security, said.

The government is reportedly considering introducing legislation to regulate drone usage.

In some countries, flight safety systems are installed in drones to prevent them flying into sensitive or no-fly zones.

Owners are also required to register their names.

Under current regulations, pilotless craft weighing more than seven kilograms must be registered with the Civil Aviation Department.

Ding Zen, who owns drone company Zeta, said restricting drones from flying into restricted areas is feasible.

“We can’t rule out the possibility that some people will use drones with bad intentions,” Ding said yesterday.

But he has reservations about the compulsory registration of owners.

“They can buy the components and make their own drones … so this policy will be meaningless.”

Legislative Council information technology and broadcasting panel member Cyd Ho Sau-lan said legislation is necessary to protect citizens’ privacy because drones may be used to take photographs through the windows of high-rise homes.

A Civil Aviation Department spokeswoman said drone regulations are being reviewed. “With the popularization of small UASs [unmanned aircraft systems], the CAD will, taking into account the development of regulatory requirements of overseas aviation authorities and the specific circumstances in Hong Kong, review the operational parameters of and the regulatory policies on UASs and consider amending the relevant legislation as appropriate, in order to ensure public safety.”

http://www.dangerandplay.com/2015/11/29/how-we-know-the-stoya-rape-accusation-against-james-deen-is-a-hoax/

When a woman’s fame falls, the claws come out. And so one porn actress has accused another of raping her. The Stoya v. James Deen rape accusation has all of the telltale signs of a false accusation. I therefore label this the James Deen Rape Hoax.

Summary: Stoya accused her ex-boyfriend of rape on Twitter while simultaneously promoting James Deen on a website she owns. (That’s not a typo. Read on!)

How do we know James Deen has been falsely accused of rape by Stoya?
Hint: The rape fits the narrative.

A proper rape hoax must fit the narrative. Unethical women understand this.

The media loves a good rape, if and only if it fits the narrative. When porn actress Cytherea was violently raped in her home, the media ignored it. Why? Because the narrative was bad. The media does not give coverage to cases where a white woman was raped by black men.

For a good rape hoax, you need the right defendant – which means a white man. James Deen fits the profile, and it doesn’t hurt that Deen is a confessed racist. In an interview with Haaretz, Deen said he viewed blacks, Hispanics, and non-Jewish whites as being beneath him. (“The Jews know we’re better than everyone else. That’s all that matters.” – James Deen.)

The rape accusation against Deen is false to the point of absurdity.

Stoya made the rape accusation on Twitter, not in a police station. Second, she mentions being a feminist in the Tweet, which is a total red herring. Finally and most damningly: She features her “rapist” on a website she owns!

Stoya accused James Deen of rape on Twitter.

If you want 7,500 RTs (and counting), falsely accuse a man of rape.

 

Rape accusations belong in a police station, and rapists belong in jail. Yet time and again we’ve seen women bring their rape accusations to the public rather than the police. The Rolling Stone Rape Hoax was the most recent example of a publicity-seeker accusing men of rape in the media.

Stoya, as a famous porn star, understands how desperate a biased, bigoted, anti-male media is for stories of men being accused of rape.

By posting her accusation on Twitter, Stoya has been able to receive considerable press coverage, boosting her profile.

BuzzFeed, Mic, Daily Mail, and dozens of other news outlets have covered the James Deen Rape Hoax.

Stoya mentions feminism in her false rape accusation.

Stoya specifically mentions feminism is her public rape accusation against James Deen. This is proof she seeks to interject ideology into what should be a police matter. She is also sending a bat signal out to SJW hate mobs.

 

Stoya features James Deen on a website she owns.

Stoya owns a website called TRENCHCOATx (NSFW). On November 17, just 10 days before accusing Deen of rape, Stoya promoted this website. The link to her website remains Stoya’s pinned Tweet on Twitter.

 

Her website features James Deen on the front page. (Archive link here; NSFW.)

In what world does a woman feature her rapist on her website?

UPDATE: Stoya’s most recent scene, which you can purchase on her website, is with James Deen.

Porn stars can be raped, and women can be raped by their ex-boyfriends.

SJWs with rabies and stupid people with poor reading comprehension are going to read a lot into this article. Let’s clear up some points.

Yes, porn stars and sex workers can be raped. Cythera was raped. Her case was a tragedy, even though it never made headlines.

It’s also possible for a woman to be raped by her boyfriend.

Stoya’s status as a girlfriend or porn star do not factor into my analysis.

Stoya’s rape accusation is false because it was made on Twitter in a desperate way to get attention to herself. She is clearly trying to get revenge against an ex-boyfriend.

Rape hoaxes harm women and men.

James Deen, if he’s lucky, will merely face SJW hate mobs and have his image destroyed. If he’s unlucky, this rape accusation ends with him in handcuffs.

Like many men before him, Deen is learning that women will violently attack any man who claims he’s innocent. I have already received death threats for insisting that we apply the presumption of innocence to Deen.

Moreover, false rape accusations harm women. I do not believe Stoya, as her accusation reads like every other rape hoax.

Every high profile rape accusation has turned out to be a hoax.

  • Rolling Stone rape hoax.
  • Duke lacrosse rape hoax.
  • Hofstra gang rape hoax.

In the unlikely event Stoya was raped, few will believe her. We’ve been lied to and now view all public rape accusations as false.
