This sort of incomplete research just feeds the view of racial uniqueness (and superiority) among Japanese and justifies their racism and discrimination against others.
Are the different races not all unique from one another? Perhaps what you meant to say was that there isn't any *significant* uniqueness between them.
If the Japanese believe they are in some way unique and that they need to promote racial homogeneity and protect their cultural, national, and racial identity to preserve that uniqueness, what reasons might one offer to say they shouldn't do so?
Racism and discrimination is one thing, being proud of who you are and wishing to preserve your identity is something else entirely.
A post-graduate taught-course in computer science or information technology---for which many UK universities accept applications from graduates of other disciplines---would seem to be an option for me, but choosing a programme is a bit difficult without any knowledge in the field. Would such a programme be a good way to start a career? If so, what sort of things should one look for in such a programme? Which skills are most valuable? What do employers look for? What areas of specialization should one consider? What possibilities are there to work with UNIX operating systems? What other possibilities might be open for me?"
The new test, known as thermal infrared imaging (TIRI), uses a thermal infrared camera to monitor breathing waveforms and airflow as a patient breathes in and out of his or her nose. The measurements are processed using computer algorithms and produce results that have proved to be as accurate as traditional test for apnea known as a polysomnography.

"Makes one long for the good-old-days of 3% student loans, doesn't it?"
No it doesn't.
A civilized nation should provide free education to the highest level each person wishes to attain, because that's part of believing that the nation's most most important resource is its people.
But when a government just wants dumb consumers, then it's a very different matter.
So it should be easy to understand why such an education isn't provided in America, since America isn't a nation, but a state.
Negros could carry a lot more weight. With twenty or thirty 1GB hard drives in a backpack, I'm sure one of them could better the pigeon quite easily.
Maybe, but the pigeon might be a little more reliable. At least it wouldn't think of stealing your data medium (i.e., hard drives, USB sticks, etc.) and selling them on the black market.
