First Post

First Post:

While I set to composing the first post for this blog, I realize that this will not only make or break this blog, but set the foundation for the etiquette and direction of this blog.
It is not without saying that the direction of this blog is of a philosophical nature, yet it will entail loose aspects toward that result.
As a result I will also bring material, data, and media to the attention of my readers that I believe is of special interest.
Kenja No Sekkyoudan, is so named in part due to my personal preference towards Asian culture and philosophy, yet also for the reason that it has a different ring than just 'The Philosopher's Pulpit', as I am sure some where out there in all the 1's and 0's, that name is already taken in some aspect, but really it is just personal taste.
In the future I will also be bringing on another Author for posting here, of whom I am sure will be of great interest to the readers.
Well it is 2009 according to the Gregorian calendar which has around since 1582 and is the continuance of the Julian calendar.
The main motivation to move from the Julian Calendar, well for those using it at the time, was do to the Catholic Church trying to standardize the holiday of Easter.
But that is neither here nor there, the United States will have the First mostly Non-White President to take office in... ever.
Now I personally have never liked his politics and believe his policies will misdirect the fabric of the American Republic, but in respect to America I do accept his win of the Presidential race for office, and hope that he will be action and not just talk as well that he will actually bring about a better America as he so promises.
China will celebrate their New Year on January 26th, 2009, while the Economic depression creating great unrest between jobless workers and students, currently doesn't seem to be coming to an end.
Elections to the European Union Parliment will be held in June.
Segio Loureiro has designed a concept vehicle called the 'Phoenix Concept', that is electric but uses the kinetic laws of physics so it will reduce energy consumption and have energy regeneration all in one unit, plus it is a looker right out of Massachussets, as seen here.
Finally, in Japan on January 14th, 2009, Nagoya University and JST, (Japan Science and Technology Agency), will be hosting the "Next Generation Japanese Technology Showcase" at Cornell Club in New York. The showcase will feature early to advanced stage developments in the fields of physical and life sciences, as seen here.
Now, though this is a rough hash of different topics, I believe it is a good start.
Thank you for your time.
