Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.


Scientist Experiment

Popular Science listed its six scariest ideas in Science. Asia is home to two of them and another Asian is helping out on a third.

1. One is a merciless robot soldier produced by the South Korean government and Samsung.

The robot can search out intruders for about 5kms. Once found, the presumed bad guy must respond to the robot’s voice-recognition or get blasted with rubber bullets, tear gas or live rounds.

North Korea’s Kim is preferred for target practice.

2. The ultimate vicious carnivore has been developed after 36 generations of selective breeding of silver foxes for hostility in Novosibirsk, Russia. I was thrown off a plane once in the middle of the night in Novosibirsk, Russia.

Thank goodness the foxes weren’t out practicing that night.
3. Muneoka, Ken is a cell biologist working at Tulan University on a program that will allow mammals to grow new appendages. A mouse finger might be grown in four years. Humans would be the next step.

Of course, if it takes four years to grow a mouse finger, by the time a human regrew an arm or a leg, they would need a whole new life. And what would a person do with the limb while it is growing?

“That’s not a wart. That’s my future right arm!”

What do you think?

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
