Japan trade account returns to deficit in April: govt

Japan goes back to a trade deficit in April 2015 after the first surplus in almost three years in the previous monthJapan swung back to a trade deficit in April after the first surplus in almost three years in March, but the shortfall shrank drastically year-on-year thanks to stronger exports and lower energy bills, official data showed Monday. "Japan's economy will be more robust this year, led by domestic consumption and external demand," said Yoshitaka Suda, an economist at Nomura Holdings. "We think that the US economy will continue to recover moderately, helping to boost Japan's exports," he told Bloomberg News.

ONR’s augmented reality glasses turns golf course into a virtual battlefield

The Augmented Immersive Team Trainer (AITT) system being demonstrated on May 21, 2015 at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Quantico, VA

The smallest distraction can break a golfer’s concentration and ruin their shot, so how would they react to tanks and explosions? If they were at the 18 hole course at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, last week, probably not at all. That’s because the fairways and greens were only turned into a battlefield complete with tanks, mortar fire, and smoke thanks to the Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) Augmented Immersive Team Trainer (AITT), which made the firefight visible only to participants wearing special glasses.

LA Angels Trade Scenarios: 5 Potential Targets That Just Make Sense

The Los Angeles Angels just finished up a rather pedestrian week. The team has lost five of its past eight ballgames. While they are still in second place in the down AL West, the Angels have a negative run differential on the year and are six and a half games in back of the first-place Houston Astros.

Things could be worse, but Los Angeles needs a boost to jump start some areas of its game. This franchise wants to compete for a championship right now. At this point, the team is developing clear weaknesses that may need to be addressed through outside means.

The minor leagues are filled with good, young arms for LA. These players can serve two purposes. They can obviously be called up to supply bullpen help or spot starts in the majors. Some, such as Andrew Heaney, may also be ready for full-time starts at some point this season.

The other thing a wealth of pitching prospects is good for is supplying a pool of players to trade from. All teams like pitching depth throughout their organizations. If the Angels use this to their advantage, they may be able to steal useful major leaguers who can help them make a run at the playoffs this year.
