Residents have overwhelmingly rejected the relocation of a US military base to a remote part of Okinawa out of fear it will destroy the ecosystem and jeopardize locals’ safety. But Tokyo has ignored the protest, as usual.

US military is biggest polluter – ex-marine on Okinawa crisis

American troops stationed on the Japanese island of Okinawa have been accused of doing little to curb their decades-long polluting impact on the local environment. Locals often complain about the noise disturbance and pollution caused by military drills. But now they’ve also started fearing for the future of their unique forest, saying Americans are not able to clean up after themselves.

Questions To Ask Yourself For A Longer, Happier Life

Dan Buettner is a National Geographic Explorer and the author of “The Blue Zones of Happiness: Lessons from the World’s Happiest People.” Here, he shares his insights on how to live a long and meaningful life. Following is a transcript of the video.

Dan Buettner: My name is Dan Buettner. I’m a National Geographic Explorer and the author of “Blue Zones of Happiness: Lessons From the World’s Happiest People.”

Only about 30% of Americans actually like their job, and that’s a really important area for happiness because you spend most of your waking hours working. So, you ask yourself how do you find a job that really speaks to your passions or purpose.

And I like to think of doing an internal inventory: “What do you like to do?” “What are you good at doing?” “What allows you to live out your values?” and “What can you give back?”

And I actually have an exercise where I answer all those four questions and put a list for each. And then find where the common denominators are, and that gives you a pretty good idea of what your purpose or as the Okinawans call what your “ikigai” is.

I first heard about ikigai in Okinawa among a group of 100-year-old women who are telling me that for them it means the reason for which I wake up in the morning.

Interestingly in Okinawa, where women live the longest in the world, there is no word for retirement. And instead, this idea of ikigai imbues people’s entire adult life.

And I think it’s a reminder of knowing your sense of purpose and living your sense of purpose, whether it’s in your job or your social life or in your family life.

And for me, and this is an interpretation — ikigai seem more than just pursuing your passion, like golfing or knitting, but it also included an element of responsibility. Like, you get to a certain age and you can go ahead and do the job or work that fuels your flow, but you should also be thinking about giving back.

That’s true ikigai.

TPP & US base on Okinawa: Conflict of interest looms over Japanese PM’s visit to America

The US president and Japanese PM are expected to iron out their differences over a game of golf. President Trump may find the course tough to negotiate: Tokyo is still waiting for an apology for the US dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War II.

Logistics – Okinawa

Buy Here: https://Logistics.lnk.to/ElectricSunyb

As one of the pioneers of the signature Hospital Records sound Logistics already has an impressive succession of albums, EPs, collaborations and remixes in his repertoire. Fortunately for us he’s adding one more to the list with his incredible sixth studio album, ‘Electric Sun’ filled with jungle flavoured rollers, garage-inspired chop-ups, down tempo head-nodders, swirling synths and merciless subs.

Settle inside paradise with ‘Icarus’ – featuring fellow Cambridge connoisseur Hugh Hardie – along with ‘After Dark’ they provide a warm, anthemic wash throughout the LP that contrasts with the equally ethereal yet hypnotic slow dance of ‘Still Life’, featuring Holly Drummond. The refined style in ‘Tell Me True’ proves simplicity really is key; rippling piano and gentle guitar plucks come together to create a first-class future classic.
