• Japan ‘No Longer Rich Country’ By 2050: [Think-tank]
TOKYO (AFP) - Japan could fall out of the league of developed nations by 2050 as a shrinking and greying population as well as slowing productivity make its economy contract, a think-tank has warned.
The 21st Century Public Policy Institute said a dwindling workforce, caused by a chronic low birthrate, will combine with lower savings and shriveling investment to drag the once mighty economy down.
The think-tank, linked to Japan’s powerful Keidanren business federation, said the economy will start getting smaller at some point in the 2030s, even if productivity recovers to the average level of the world’s top economies.
Japan’s GDP will fall behind India in 2014 and by 2050 it will lose its economic presence 'significantly’, dipping to be only one sixth that of China and the United States and one third that of India, said the report.

Sharing such thoughts has become so popular that there’s an entire subreddit devoted to them on…

We love having cats and dogs around as our furry companions, but we often don’t give them much thought when we arrange our homes (unless you own any pet furniture). Nonetheless, our pets are understanding – they try to make do with human furniture. Things don’t always go as planned, however, and when they get stuck, their humans are there to capture their hilarious fails.

I’ve been told not to judge a book by its cover, but when the cover has a title like “Images You Should Not Masturbate To”, it’s hard not to. Whether intentionally funny or just completely oblivious, here are some of the worst book titles we’ve ever seen.
Some of the people who wrote these titles might have been oblivious and out of touch, but it could also have to do with changing word use in…
