It seems like this place is in Japan. I would just like someone to confirm if it is true.

I guess it's finally time to retire the old thing, gone but not forgotten.

Have you tried plugging in headphones? Maybe it's just the speakers that have given out.

^ Nope, the sound is still pretty dead.

It happened all of a sudden during one of [Dragoneer's Aria]'s cut-scenes.

Can a newspaper quote another newspaper's "exclusive interview" (or just public interview) without asking for permission? If they clearly state the source, of course

No if the interview is truly "exclusive". Permission must first be sought.....this is called re-publishing.

Does anyone here know the average cost of buying land overlooking the coast in Japan?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Three lolis and a catgirl? No, but that is an interesting question. I imagine it may also relate to whether the buyer is a citizen or not.

I am not quite sure about the freehold regulations in Japan; though something tells me that I need an actual knowledge of the legal terms in order to buy and hold estate as a foreigner.

And they are all in Japanese.

EDIT : A little question about Economics :

If cash is flowing towards a certain part of an economy after a disaster has devastated its infrastructure, will the increased liquidity cause the price of the goods produced in that particular sector to rise or fall?

I would say prices would rise, mostly because the supply of goods will be constricted, and you'll get disaster profiteering.

I don't know what liquidity has to do with it, but my guess is that if money starts flowing into a region, it'll only make prices higher(more money chasing the same amount of goods).

The way to counter this would be to pour free supplies into the region ("disaster relief") which should bring down prices.

Should have added the phrase "no textbook assaults please". My bad.

Liquidity increases trading volatility, increases fear in the market, hurt market confidence, and causes things to end low then go sideways. From the non-domestic consumption POV, it will go down. From domestic consumption POV, it might not register because money is worthless during a disaster.

In real life scenarios, textbook economics rarely make any sense. The real problem now is I can't chart any fucking scenario because textbook economics doesn't take into account logistics management due to area accessibility and cultural psychology.

The amount of trade into a certain area determines price of necessities, discounting the theory of Giffen and Veblen goods. But the lack of necessities and trade will mean that the area becomes underdeveloped during reconstruction, resulting in lowered accessiblity and driving up the cost of goods due to reduced rate of supply. This will result in a diaspora, thus driving the price of goods AND liquidity down.

In the case of developed countries, will this mean that the cost of doing business in that area stay stagnant due to a mentality of holding a property vs taking a loss? Or will the owners liquidate assets in that area causing the price of freehold to drop too?

Well, I think it's obvious that during the disaster itself, and in the location that the disaster is taking place in, prices will soar for basic goods, while luxury goods will crash. As you say, money becomes worthless, likewise anything that could serve as a substitute for it (like jewelry).

Now I'm not well versed on this area, so pardon me if I make any obvious errors from here. Still, I'll try to logic things out as best I can, and maybe you can get something out of it.

Outside of the disaster zone, the effect on pricing is trickier. You are correct that psychology could tweak things in weird ways (for instance, there could be a mass buying spree of basic necessities even though they may not need it).

If we discount panic buying and other mass psychoses (which are highly cultural in nature) for the time being, then a disaster in one region should not heavily effect prices for basic necessities in surrounding regions, and may in fact see prices fall, as the goods that would otherwise go into the disaster zone are instead circulating everywhere else, leading to a glut of supply. Furthermore, the price of luxuries will fall as the luxuries being traded out from the disaster zone floods the adjacent luxury market (luxuries due to their high value to weight ratio are easier to bring out of the zone relative to bringing the necessities into the zone).

The only exception here are the goods produced in the zone in question. If the supply of that good originating in that region is high then we could expect the price of that good to rise due to the destroyed production capacity. If that zone dominates a particular sector, large price rises can be expected. For instance, after the Japanese earthquake/Tsunami the price of many precision machined parts shot up, due to Japan's dominance in that sector.

So I would say high prices in the zone, low prices outside, except for the goods the disaster zone is known to produce. Also, the price of certain logistical services will also presumably go up.

As for the cost of doing business after the disaster, it depends on the extent and type of the damage. If it's easily repairable I'd say you'll see people holding, leading to no significant movements in property prices etc.

If the entire area is completely levelled though, I'd say people will just cut their losses and leave. They'll move, sell or salvage whatever they can. They may or may not choose to sell the land itself, presumably because they'll only get pennies for it, and they might earn more from sitting on it. Either way, the place crashes.

Personally, though, I agree that in this kind of scenario it's quite difficult to predict things. A lot depends on mass psychology, but it's also impossible to draw universal conclusions, every disaster will be different. A lot depends on the specifics of what damage has occurred, and how that region is tied into it's adjacent communities.

When one thinks of rendering, generally the first thing that pops up in their mind relates to 3D rendering... in essence, using specialised computer programs to create 3D environments and objects from models and is generally used in "architecture, video games, simulators, movie or TV visual effects, and design visualization".

What I'm curious about myself is when rendering became the (informal) term used to describe cutting out the background from an image.

So rendering is simply "cutting an image from the background??

Is it the same when I erase some part of an image to reveal another image below it when I'm having two pictures one over the other???

I think it might have been confused with tracing and the like. I'm not sure myself, but there seems to be a fusion going on between them. I.E, their definitions seems to change in the matter of context.

It's often a misconception to use the word "Rendering" in that context, but it's understandable because it's very commonly used. The correct word is "Extraction" for "cutting an image from the background".

And this is what Hasumi said, "Cropping."

do not confuse rendering (the process of generating an image) with a render (image of an object or character with no background)

quick tutorial i found here, hope it help you

I did this quick mockup;
Spoiler for big img:

See all the points with handles? That's made with click and dragging;
  1. Starting point
  2. Click and Drag to make it curve
  3. End point
You will get the hang of where these curve-points are to be placed as you practice (at least I did), goodluck!

My result, because, yeah, I know what I'm talking about

Question:

There's an urban myth that i heard from somewhere about a murder case. All indications (DNA, motives, etcs) was leading to a pair of twins, but because the polices don't have any evidences on which one of the twin did it (one or both of them must be well-prepared and great liars), they can't push on the case, and the case is dropped.

Is it possible for a murder case like that to happen?

Probably, but never heard it yet.

They maybe twins but their personality... and fingerprints aren't...

When it comes to figuring out the suspect... that depends on the skill of the detective... he only has to choose between the two...
