ABP World Group - Parental Abduction Recovery & Kidnapping Recovery

Parents deprived of their children held a rally Friday to push for introducing joint custody to the Japanese legal system and to raise awareness of the plight faced by their offspring when marriages fall apart.

Marching through the Asakusa district in Tokyo’s Taito Ward, about 30 Japanese and foreign participants held up a multilingual banner reading, “Stop Parental Child Abduction!”

Demonstrators also carried signs reading “More visitation time” and “Affection from both parents to children” during the hour-long march on Children’s Day.

It was the first rally organized by Kodomo no Kenri wo Mamoru Bekkyo Oya Forum (Forum for Left-Behind Parents Protecting Children’s Rights) to address the problem of parental child abduction in Japan.

“I want people to know that children have the right to see both of their parents and that parents are responsible for accomplishing that,” said Daisuke Tanaka, the organizer of the event.

Tanaka has been…

THE STUDENT SERVITUDE SHAM

Source: MATASII.com, by Gordon Long

Many today strongly believe it is morally wrong to indenture students to the degree of liabilities presently required to achieve the education required to become a productive contributor within our modern society.

The question we need to demand answers to is why has college costs for students exploded upward, while salaries and job positions for graduates has not?  What is driving the relentless and inexplicable surge in the debt burden for students and their parents?

The well researched “Ivy League Inc” by my friends at OpenTheBooks only begins to scratch the surface of what is minimally a sham and may be better described as an orchestrated banking scam, not to dissimilar in design to the last financing bubble (i.e. the Residential Real Estate bubble in the last decade).  Let me take the discussion in a critical direction which they politically may have felt it to be too sensitive to broach?

I was a camper. Everyone hated me.
OMG NOOB CAMPER QUIT CAMPING U FAG.
Finding a quiet corner of the map – or a dark spot in a busy corner of the map – and picking off passers-by was, apparently, not cool. It got me kicked off countless servers.
GET SUM SKILLZ CAMPER!!!!!
Of course, what I should have done was brainlessly galumph around the map until I got killed.
Well, everyone wants a quiet corner now and I got mine.
My Hill.

Evie and I used to come up here for walks, even brought Joe a couple of times before The Fall. One of the highest points in the area – arcing above the fringes of what used to be south London – it was a makeshift landing strip during the Battle of Britain, so…

Connecticut Laughs Ruefully As Its Tax Haul Collapses 25 Years After Income Levy

sentinelblog

From the New York Sun

By CHRIS POWELL

Connecticut residents who remember the enactment of the state income tax in 1991 can only laugh ruefully as state government’s revenue collapses again, this time largely on account of falling receipts from the income tax.

Twenty-six years ago the tax’s advocates declared that the income tax would stabilize revenue and be much more reliable than other taxes. But now receipts from other taxes are holding up far better than those from the income tax.

Back then there was a theoretical argument for the income tax — that it would correlate more than other taxes with ability to pay, drawing more from wealth. But it was not a good argument in practice, since as it was structured the income tax replaced the state’s taxes on dividends and capital gains, which already were being paid largely by the wealthy.

Thus the income tax turned…

Watercolor Silhouettes : Puzzling out a Painting

Citizen Sketcher

Here’s a couple of simple silhouettes, captured on a spectacular day of sun in a month of spring rain.

The great thing about painting – you’re always evolving. No matter what your level as an artist – you can (should?) always have an inspirational goal. Some skill or philosophy on the horizon.

This season, I want to double down on the use of silhouettes.

My painting has always been a bit ‘unfinished’ – (intentionally 🙂 – with a lot of negative space, and places that show the drawing. I like it that way. I’m not after an overly polished look.

But as well, it’s an artifact of the way I draw – sketching contours in line, then looking for the shapes of cast shadows.

One way to counter any tendency towards jumpy/patchy/uneven structures – is to look for back-lit situations.

What the Plein-Air painters call ‘Contra Jour’ – or ‘Against the Day’.

Position yourself with the…
