There are a lot of errors here... Which is unsurprising, since you're learning this informally.

Specifically, the honorific is "san" (pronounced like "sun")
The names (caccarot, vegeta, buruma...) are not actual words in Japanese (for instance vegetables is "yasai" - yah-sah-ee)
Gohan can mean food, meal, or rice. Small doesn't have to do with anything. There might be other meanings as well.

Recently? Not much (or less noticeably). Where do people mainly develop games? Resembles Thesh's answer. (Missed Australia, though.) Watches English-speaking players within that sphere too. Skews American and British, probably.

Played only Kerbal Space Program of those listed, and only briefly. (Included all games from Paradox Interactive and Avalanche Studios on Wikipedia.) Considers Germany in western Europe. Presumes several Russian and Chinese developers too. Probably accounts for a small fraction of games, however.

(Note: Never noticed cultural influences from them. May still exist, even obviously so.)

Edit: Video game companies by country. Disclaimer: Doubts it to be complete. May overlap too. Example: EA (United States) and EA Canada. Does not necessarily reflect games produced either.

Because some of us are interested in Japan? I speak four languages - Hebrew, English, French, and Japanese (not fluent in French and Japanese), I've been to over 20 countries around the world, and lived in three different countries on three different continents. Does that pass your requirements?

Well, let me see, there's all the Scandinavian-American cultures I grew up around (I'm of Norwegian-American extraction myself, though I've been known to show up at the Laskiainen festival for the sledding, cocoa, and food.) I also read Portuguese well enough that I used to be able to follow my cousins' Aninha comics.

I've been physically exposed to the culture in Utah, Washington, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Also Montreal Canada, but everyone spoke French so I didn't catch much of the culture.

The Interwebodome has exposed me to many more, though in filtered slices.

For various reasons, yes. It's subject to change, but for now at least I think I'll be staying away from the top 20 on this list, anywhere within 50km of any part of Somalia, the whole catchment area of the Ebola river, any country that requires you to share your date of birth, NHS number, passport number, driver's licence number, home address, telephone number and credit card details with the entire internet to get a visa, any city where the air pollution would kill me fast, several on-going tribal conflicts, ...

I'm pretty sure Russia requires all your usual details, city of birth, all past addresses, plus social security, credit card numbers, full name and nickname of all relatives and friends, past or present, as well as their birthdates, phone numbers, addresses, date of birth, etc., information on all of your current and past pets, etc.

Nigeria only requires that you wire them a small deposit...

Yeah, but the Russian and Nigerian visa services aren't run by a company that's been banned from doing business in the UK because their security was that bad and they did nothing about it for years.

A security flaw in the VFS Global managed online application website for the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office resulted in up to 50 000 visa applications from India, Nigeria and Russia being publicly accessible. The security flaw was known since December 2005, but the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website was only shut down after an investigation in May 2007 following reports in the media. The security breach was first reported by an Indian applicant in December 2005 after which no effective remedial action was taken by either VFS nor UKvisas, the joint Home Office and Foreign & Commonwealth Office unit which runs the UK's visa service through British diplomatic posts overseas. The same applicant went public in May 2007 after he noticed that his earlier warnings were ignored.

The Information Commissioner's Office required the Foreign Office to sign a statement that it would comply with the Data Protection Act and would not reopen the VFS UK visa online facility.

VFS Global's security flaws were called into question again in July 2015 when their online visa forms for Italy allowed users to see the personal information of other applicants, including their date of birth, passport details and addresses, if they mistakenly input the ID number of another person when logging into the system.

While the UK and much of the world struggles with overcrowded prisons, the Netherlands has the opposite problem. It is actually short of people to lock up. In the past few years 19 prisons have closed down and more are slated for closure next year. How has this happened - and why do some people think it's a problem?

The smell of fried onions wafts up the metal staircase, past the cell doors and along the wing. Down in the kitchen inmates are preparing their evening meal. One man, gripping a long serrated blade, is expertly chopping vegetables.

"I've had six years to practice so I am getting better!" he says.

It is noisy work because the knife is on a long steel chain attached to the worktop.

"They can't take that knife with them," says Jan Roelof van der Spoel, deputy governor of Norgerhaven, a high-security prison in the north-east of the Netherlands. "But they can borrow small kitchen knives if they hand in their passes so we know exactly who has what."

Some of these men are inside for violent offences and the thought of them walking around with knives might seem alarming. But learning to cook is just one of the ways the prison helps offenders to get back on track after their release.

"In the Dutch service we look at the individual," says Van der Spoel.

"If somebody has a drug problem we treat their addiction, if they are aggressive we provide anger management, if they have got money problems we give them debt counselling. So we try to remove whatever it was that caused the crime. The inmate himself or herself must be willing to change but our method has been very effective. Over the last 10 years, our work has improved more and more."

He adds that some persistent offenders - known in the trade as "revolving-door criminals" - are eventually given two-year sentences and tailor-made rehabilitation programmes. Fewer than 10% then return to prison after their release. In England and Wales, and in the United States, roughly half of those serving short sentences reoffend within two years, and the figure is often higher for young adults.

Norgerhaven, along with Esserheem - another almost identical prison in the same village, Veenhuizen - have plenty of open space. Exercise yards the size of four football pitches feature oak trees, picnic tables and volleyball nets. Van der Spoel says the fresh air reduces stress levels for both inmates and staff. Detainees are allowed to walk unaccompanied to the library, to the clinic or to the canteen and this autonomy helps them to adapt to normal life after their sentence.

A decade ago the Netherlands had one of the highest incarceration rates in Europe, but it now claims one of the lowest - 57 people per 100,000 of the population, compared with 148 in England and Wales.

...

What is clear is that many of Angeline van Dijk's staff are not happy about the lack of people to lock up.

Frans Carbo, the prison guards' representative from the FNV union, says his members are "angry and a little bit depressed". Young people don't want to join the prison service he adds "because there is no future in it any more - you never know when your prison will be closed".

One empty prison was turned into a fancy hotel south of Amsterdam, its four most expensive suites named the The Lawyer, The Judge, The Governor and The Jailer.

But others, converted into asylum reception centres, have provided work for some former prison guards.

The desire to protect prison service jobs has sparked another surprising solution - the import of foreign inmates from Norway and Belgium.

"At one point our state secretary met the Norwegian minister of justice and said I have some cells to spare - you can rent one of our prisons," says Jan Roelof van der Spoel.

So last September Norway began sending some of its convicts south to serve their sentences at Van der Spoel's prison, Norgerhaven.

The governor of the prison is now a Norwegian, Karl Hillesland, but the prison guards keeping an eye on the 242 men locked up here are Dutch.

Hardly seems like rocket science, but there we are. Rather than act like all criminals are irredeemable psychopaths, find the root cause of the antisocial behaviour and treat it - saving a hell of a lot of taxpayer money while you're at it.

Who'd have thunk it?

But-but-but reducing recidivism and making the country safer and ensuring that a larger percentage of the next generation has the opportunity to succeed is being soft on crime! We need to be tough on crime to be safe from all the criminals we create through draconian punishments for relatively minor offenses!

An email that was accidentally sent to all the NHS's staff in England has caused havoc.

One of the health system's employees fired off the message on Monday morning without realising they had copied in 840,000 of their co-workers.

The action quickly clogged up the system and was exacerbated by users hitting "reply all" to complain.


Special bonus points were awarded to the person who replied to all complaining that the email was going to everyone and included a read receipt request...

All the people on facebook saying 'Stop hitting reply all' were funny. A few memes were born.

edit: It sounds like due to the error in the test distribution list, you didn't actually have to hit reply all, just reply, and it would send out to the distribution list again? I'm not sure, and apparently we use Trust emails rather than nhs.net so my hospital was unaffected.

Sprayed an insecticide named Doom onto people. Claims to heal people through faith. Favorite quote:
Source Article wrote: "Doom is just a name, but when you speak to it to become a healing product, it does. People get healed and delivered through doom," a post on the church's Facebook account reads.

Sounds like an Onion article. Serves as a good metaphor for 2016.

As part of Google’s slew of artificial intelligence announcements today, the company is releasing a number of AI web experiments powered by its cloud services that anyone can go and play with. One — called Quick, Draw! — gives you a prompt to draw an image of a written word or phrase in under 20 seconds with your mouse cursor in such a way that a neural network can identify it. It’s both a hilarious and fascinating exercise with broader implications for how AI can self-learn over time in key AI research areas like image recognition and optical character recognition.

https://quickdraw.withgoogle.com/
I just looked this over, and I ended up playing for several rounds. It's very compelling, at least at first. I presume this is another step in Google becoming skynet or is it the matrix?
