Eyes of a Child,” by JP, Japundit, 2 November 2005,

This was covered earlier, but it deserves front-page treatment. The flash animation is particularly beautiful.


Japundit contributor Danny Bloom has recently published a Japanese edition of inspirational message book In the Eyes of a Child, It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again, with longtime Japan resident Amy Chavez as the publisher with her Dollar Bookstore website.

The new edition is in English and Japanese, wonderfully translated by Mitsuko Ebihara in Tokyo, and it comes in the format of a deck of 52 bilingual cards that can be used for learning English at home or in the classroom.

The book sells for just one American dollar, and orders can be placed over the Internet using PayPal. The intended target audience for the Japanese edition is Japanese learners of English, but native English speakers can also enjoy the inspirational message it contains. Danny says the book has been translated so far into Chinese, Japanese and Korean, and he is hoping to publish 25 translations online eventually.

Watch the flash or buy the new edition.

Censored by NationMaster in Retaliation for a Negative Review

What do radical Islamists, Communist China, and NationMaster have in common?

All three want tdaxp to shut up

For now, I don’t know what to do. The negative review Mr. Steinmetz complained about — that he falsely accused of defaming his company — is down. He never mentiond anything wrong with the second and third posts, and he even said that the person I criticized in them (Viswa Priya) no longe works for the company.

Suggestions? Help? Ideas.

For now I have started to allow me to keep track of all this without clogging up the tdaxp main page, but I am searching for something better than caving into the hostile “content managers” and staff at NatMast.

has a record of such thuggishness, and I do not feel comforatble with censoring this blog after the vaguest threat of “lawyers.” , , and are too important for that… I hope.
