Japan’s Prime Minister Abe Gets Embarrassed in Harvard

Japan’s Prime Minister Abe Gets Embarrassed in Harvard



In April 2015,
Japan’s Prime Minister Abe visited the U.S.
During his tour in the U.S., he delivered a speech in Harvard,
one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
In a free discussion time, a Korean-American student threw him the following question.
"There are solid proofs showing that the Japanese government and
military were directly involved in the Comfort Women system.
In the face of all these facts, do you still deny the Japanese government’s
explicit involvement in the subjugation of hundreds of thousands of
women in the coerced sexual slavery?”







To this, Prime Minister Abe answered that
"My heart aches when I think about the victims of human trafficking 
who had indescribable sufferings.”
A vague response. It is hard to tell who did the human trafficking just with that answer,
and it is so doubtful why he never says he apologizes..
Also, the term sexual slavery, which Japanese soldiers did to satisfy
their sexual desire, is more appropriate than human trafficking.






Japan never apologizes for its past.
It is completely different from Germany.
Abe raised antipathy by entering from the backdoor to avoid
demonstrators who demanded Japan’s regret for the past.
Why does Japan have no regret???? Japanese politics is very ironic.

“No Shampoo” Campaign Worldwide

“No Shampoo” Campaign Worldwide



Shampoos we generally contain surfactant.
With the advent of shampoo came “scalp trouble.”
New industries such as hair loss center and
scalp care program were born to prevent scalp trouble.
This is all because of sodium laureth sulfate (SLS),
a bad ingredient inside shampoo.

That is, we use shampoo to improve our scalp and hair,
but shampoo contains SLS, which damages a person’s scalp and hair.
What neglecting this terrible fact are the “firms selling shampoo.”






Shampoo is bad for scalp and hair, but they advertise
for us to use shampoo for scalp and hair.
It’s so ironic.

This scene shows a pregnant woman choosing shampoo.
A movement for not using shampoo is popular in Korea and throughout the world.
In “if you are too picky about everything, you can’t do anything” attitude,
Consumers purchased scalp trouble by
paying their own money to put toxic SLS on their hair.
Are they clever enough to exceed “shampoo companies’ marketing”?

when President Park, Geun-hye and Larry Page, the CEO of Google, met.







Korea has the fastest internet in the world.
It is home to Samsung, LG, Hyundai, and Kia Motor.
In other words, one of your cell phone, lap top, computer, TV, and car is made by a Korean company.
As you know Psy’s Gangnam Style, Korea is a cultural powerhouse.
It is close to China. China trusts Korea.
Chinese people’s favorite products, movies, and music are all Korean.
