    A legendary music teacher famed for developing a world-renowned violin method and who boasted about his friendship with Albert Einstein has been been exposed as a fraud and a liar. Shinichi Suzuki founded the Suzuki method in the 1950s and it has since been used by millions across the world. The violinist died in 1998 and had claimed Einstein was his 'guardian' and that he spent eight years in the 1920s studying at Berlin Hochshule, in Germany, as a private student of top violinist Karl Klinger, The Telegraph reported. Yet it has surfaced that the musician was rejected from the...

    American Suzuki Motor Corp, the sole distributor of Suzuki Motor Corp (7269.T) vehicles in the continental United States, will file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection with $346 million in debt, of which $173 million is owed to Suzuki group companies, it said. Japan's No. 4 automaker said in a statement that it would be unable to maintain profitability in its automobile business in the United States, given the currency rate and its automobile lineup, made up primarily of small cars. American Suzuki, which sold 2,023 vehicles in the United States last month, plans to compensate car dealers as it phases...

    Wall Street 24X7 ^ | 06/21/2012
    Each year, 24/7 Wall St. identifies 10 important American brands that we predict will to disappear within a year. This year’s list reflects the brutally competitive nature of certain industries and the reason why companies cannot afford to fall behind in efficiency, innovation or financing. American Airlines will disappear in 2013 because of its inefficiency. It was the premier carrier in the United States for almost 30 years — even surviving through periods when most other carriers went bankrupt. However, it lost its critical advantage of scale when Northwest merged with Delta (NYSE: DAL) and Continental merged with United (NYSE:...

    David Suzuki's recent suggestion that politicians who fail to march in his environmental crusade should be imprisoned has inevitably attracted much comment. Although he subsequently declared that his remarks should not be taken literally, they raise ever-recurring questions over Dr. Suzuki's objectivity, and whether those who follow him really comprehend his core beliefs, and their political implications. One unlikely group of recent converts to Suzuki-ism is the National Hockey League Players Association, NHLPA, whose members are hardly known for their hairshirt lifestyles. Nevertheless, a large number of players have -- at Dr. Suzuki's behest -- secured places for themselves in...
  • Jail politicians who ignore climate science: Suzuki

    Jail politicians who ignore climate science: Suzuki Didn't mean it literally says scientist's spokesperson David Suzuki has called for political leaders to be thrown in jail for ignoring the science behind climate change. At a Montreal conference last Thursday, the prominent scientist, broadcaster and Order of Canada recipient exhorted a packed house of 600 to hold politicians legally accountable for what he called an intergenerational crime. Though a spokesman said yesterday the call for imprisonment was not meant to be taken literally, Dr. Suzuki reportedly made similar remarks in an address at the University of Toronto last month. The proposal...

    There is an irresistible quality to the story about Al Gore's energy-hungry Tennessee home, replete with a heated poolhouse that burns more natural gas -- $500 a month worth -- than most of us can afford to use while heating houses that shelter people, as opposed to swimming lanes. Did you know that Mr. Gore's house uses more electricity in a month than the average household does in a year?

    David Suzuki vs. Michael Crichton Barbara Kay, National Post Published: Wednesday, February 21, 2007 Last Thursday, environmentalist guru David Suzuki stormed out of a Toronto AM640 radio interview with host John Oakley because Oakley dared to suggest that global warming might not be the "totally settled issue" Suzuki insisted it was. Oakley only reported a fact: Many accredited scientists -- some full professors from top universities, including Nobel prize winners and a former president of the National Academy of Sciences -- would argue that "global warning is at best unproven and at worst pure fantasy," according to novelist and...

  • N.C. Man Told to Remove Hanging Motorcycle

    RALEIGH, N.C. - Harley-Davidson enthusiast Richard Woodworth has an unusual piece of art in his back yard, and it's causing him quite a headache with the city of Raleigh. It's the gnarled metal of a wrecked motorcycle hanging in a tree. In February, a city inspector walked on Woodworth's wooded property and decided the dangling metal fell under Raleigh's code definition of a nuisance motor vehicle. But even though Woodworth lives a mile outside the city limits and has posted no-trespassing signs, he falls under some city code enforcement. For Woodworth, that meant receiving a city inspections letter telling him...

    Town of Waukesha - Motorcyclist Daniel Buckel was within 10 feet when he saw the potential disaster stretched across a dark and foggy rural road just ahead. Disbelief turned to fear, then anger, as Buckel's 2-year-old motorcycle hit a barrier of kitchen-variety plastic wrap that was wound thickly from traffic pole to traffic pole on opposite sides of Guthrie Road, south of Highway I. The clear plastic trap, which was 3 to 4 feet above the two-lane road south of Waukesha, sent both Buckel and his passenger, girlfriend Theresa Brzykcy, into a bloody slide across the asphalt. "It's appalling, and...

    TOKYO, May 18, Kyodo - The United States is concerned about possible leaks of U.S. information to Russia through Masaru Sato, a Russian affairs expert at the Foreign Ministry arrested Tuesday, diplomatic sources said Saturday. The U.S. government has strong concerns because Sato allegedly delivered top-secret official telegrams regularly to scandal-tainted lawmaker Muneo Suzuki even after he left a key government post, the sources said. Sato was in a position to see a broad range of information from Japanese diplomatic missions abroad since July 1998 when he assumed a post at the Intelligence and Analysis Bureau, taking charge of top-secret...
