proving this island nation has blood tie

LONDON [url=http://www.wholesalenbajerseyschinacheap.com/Wholesale_Washington_Wizards_Jerseys.html]Wholesale Washington Wizards Shirts[/url] , Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- World and Olympic champion Allyson Felix is happy with her good form which might help her become the athlete winning the most world championships medals.


Felix, 31, now has collected 13 medals, just one behind all-time leader Merlene Ottey and stands a good chance to raise her medal tally at the London world championships as she will defend the 400 meters and compete in both 4x100m and 4x400m relays.


"For me, I honestly don't think about the medal tally and what it means in history," said Felix. "I just focus on the new season and I figure when my career is done [url=http://www.wholesalenbajerseyschinacheap.com/Wholesale_Utah_Jazz_Jerseys.html]Wholesale Utah Jazz Shirts[/url] , I'll look back and appreciate everything."


While refusing to think too much about breaking the record, Felix was happy with her form that would make her the very dangerous competitor on the track.


"Training has been going really well. I feel I am reaching my peak at the right time. I am excited and looking forward to getting started," she said.


"Last year everything went wrong. Nothing went according to plan. But that happens. I was not thinking of that going into this season. I am just focusing on my own goals and defending my title," she added.

TOKYO, Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- Historically Japan has always tried to keep its doors closed to the outside world even today as other first world countries are embracing all the benefits cultural diversity can bring.


Japan continues to cling to its archaic notion that racial hegemony is somehow virtuous despite the economic needs of the country screaming out for this island nation to open up its doors to more foreign workers.


The demographic situation of this country is in dire straits as the government's own statistics prove. Without some kind of wholesale intervention the population here will decline from around 128 million to just over 86 million by 2060, with people over the age 65 accounting for 40 percent of the total. A particular poignant statistic is the fact that the working population aged between 15 and 64 will plunge from 82 million to a startling 44 million in the same timeframe.


But while the government has taken the very small step in creating what it describes as "national strategic special zones" which have been designed specifically to encourage a certain kind of workers from overseas to relocate and work in Japan in areas spanning nine major urban hubs [url=http://www.wholesalenbajerseyschinacheap.com/Wholesale_Toronto_Raptors_Jerseys.html]Wholesale Toronto Raptors Shirts[/url] , including Tokyo, Miyagi, Aichi and Akita prefectures, the drive to counter Japan's rapidly hollowing out workforce has barely been put into first gear, despite research unequivocally proving that widening the immigration door would be a simple and comprehensive fix for the island nation's myriad economic needs.


Recent figures by Nomura Securities have shown that if Japan were to accept just 100,000 immigrants annually [url=http://www.wholesalenbajerseyschinacheap.com/Wholesale_San_Antonio_Spurs_Jerseys.html]Wholesale San Antonio Spurs Shirts[/url] , its net income and expenditures 30 years from now, would not only see the government's highly indebted balance sheet return to the black, but actually boast profits of almost 4 trillion yen. Indeed if the annual quota were to be raised from a modest 100,000 overseas workers per year, the benefits to the economy would rise commensurately.


But while for economists and industry bosses themselves, the solution to Japan's grim demographic situation is an easy one [url=http://www.wholesalenbajerseyschinacheap.com/Wholesale_Sacrament_ Kings_Jerseys.html]Wholesale Sacramento Kings Shirts[/url] , for Japan's right-wing government, often accused of being "culturally backward," the very idea of openly inviting more foreigners to live and work here is tantamount to sacrilege, as one notable anthropologist explains.


"Japan suffers from a superiority complex and this is based on a historical belief that continues to permeate society today and is passed on from parents to child and through both education and secondary and tertiary social structures, which sees Japan as superior than other races, particularly other Asian races [url=http://www.wholesalenbajerseyschinacheap.com/Wholesale_Portland_Trail_Blazers_Jerseys.html]Wholesale Portland Trail Blazers Shirts[/url] ," Keiko Gono, a leading sociologist told Xinhua.


"There's no mystery that ancient Japanese mythology connects the Imperial family's bloodline back to divinity and the country itself in mythological accounts was also born from the divine. And while postwar Japan may now scoff at such views being taken literally, there is still an unspoken sense here, embedded in the Japanese psyche, that 'We Japanese', an expression used so often here to describe a single sentiment and reinforce and elevate group solidarity and identity over that of other nations and races [url=http://www.wholesalenbajerseyschinacheap.com/Wholesale_Phoenix_Suns_Jerseys.html]Wholesale Phoenix Suns Shirts[/url] , that Japan and its people are somehow, just 'better' than others," Gono said.


She went on to explain that some of this false sense of supremacy came from a wholly fallacious notion that Japan's bloodline was somehow pure, and separated Japan from other races, in the same way as its well-defended island shores were once well-defended against foreign invasion.


"As I've stated before, historically Japan's bloodline is hugely mixed [url=http://www.wholesalenbajerseyschinacheap.com/Wholesale_Philadelphia_76ers_Jerseys.html]Wholesale Philadelphia 76ers Shirts[/url] , with DNA evidence proving this island nation has blood ties with Southeast Asia, North Asia and Austronesia and probably more," Gono said, adding"independent DNA studies have confirmed irrevocably that around 54 percent of paternal lineage here and 66 of maternal lineage is of Sino-Korean origin, and any individual or factions claiming otherwise are simply deluded," Gono reiterated.


The stark reality of the situation [url=http://www.wholesalenbajerseyschinacheap.com/Wholesale_Orlando_Magic_Jerseys.html]Wholesale Orlando Magic Shirts[/url] , however, is that it is such a misguided endemic cultural hegemony that will hugely inhibit Japan's progress as a nation and could be the very reason for .
