Japan student group injects new exuberance into anti-war protests| Reuters

TOKYO Wearing shorts and a baggy T-shirt and clutching a microphone, Aki Okuda stands before a crowd, the pyramid-shaped roof of Japan's parliament lit up against the night sky behind him. "No War", "Protect the Constitution", "Abe - Quit!", he chants in a hip-hop rhythm, echoed by the crowd. Okuda, 23, is a founding member of a group of students that has become a fresh face of protest against Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's push to enact a more robust defence policy - steps critics say violate the pacifist constitution and could ensnare Japan in U.S.-led wars. #Business #Japan #Technology #Middle East #Latin America #Entertainment

Japan cargo ship embarks on International Space Center supply mission| Reuters

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla After three botched missions to resupply the International Space Center since October, an unmanned cargo ship blasted off from southern Japan on Wednesday with food, water and gear needed to keep the research station and its crew functioning. A 19-story H-2B rocket lifted off from the Tanegashima Space Center at 1150 GMT and put the HTV capsule into orbit 15 minutes later, a NASA Television broadcast showed. It will take the capsule five days to reach the station, a $100 billion laboratory that flies about 250 miles (400 km) above Earth. #India #Japan #Middle East #science #Latin America
