Austin, Texas

Then again on Sunday, calls to 9-1-1 (w:9-1-1) began to come in to Williamson County (w:Williamson County, Texas), Texas sheriff's office around 12:30 p.m. (Central time (w:Central Time Zone)) that burning debris and fireballs were seen falling from the sky onto parts of Austin (w:Austin, Texas), Houston (w:Houston, Texas), Waco (w:Waco, Texas) and San Antonio (w:San Antonio, Texas). By this time, I’m thinking that it might be good for a change. Bye to California, I’ll try Austin (w:Austin, Texas) for a while. So I moved, only to find out that this is a place with a highly inflated sense of self-importance and where damn little real engineering work is done. I’ve never experienced such a hard time finding work. The rates are 1 3 of what I was earning before the crash, because pay rates here are fixed by the three or four large companies in the area who are in collusion to drive down prices and wages… and this happens because the justice department (w:United States Department of Justice) is all on the take and doesn’t give a fuck about serving anyone or anything but themselves and their rich buddies.

Once again, Moscow took a stand in opposition to returning the disputed territories to Japan. Although Japan joined with the Group of Seven industrialized nations in contributing some technical and financial assistance to Russia, relations between Tokyo and Moscow remained poor. In September 1992, Russian president Boris Yeltsin postponed a scheduled visit to Japan. The visit took place on October 11, 1993. He made no further concessions on the Kuril Islands dispute over the four Kuril Islands (northeast of Hokkaido), a considerable obstacle to Japanese-Russian relations, but did agree to abide by the 1956 Soviet pledge to return two areas (Shikotan and the Habomai Islands) to Japan. Yeltsin also apologized repeatedly for Soviet mistreatment of Japanese prisoners of war after World War II. In March 1994, then Japanese minister of foreign affairs Hata Tsutomu visited Moscow and met with Russian minister of foreign affairs Andrei Kozyrev and other senior officials. The two sides agreed to seek a resolution over the persistent Kuril Islands dispute, but the decision of the dispute is not expected in the near future. Despite the territorial dispute, Hata offered some financial support to Russian market-oriented economic reforms. WikiPedia:Tokyo Dmoz:Regional Asia Japan Prefectures Tokyo Commons:Category:Tokyo
