Cabinet of Japan

The Cabinet of Japan is the executive branch of the government of Japan. It consists of the Prime Minister, appointed by the Emperor after being designated by the National Diet, up to nineteen other members, called Ministers of State; the Prime Minister is designated by the Diet, the remaining ministers are appointed and dismissed by the Prime Minister. The Cabinet is collectively responsible to the Diet and must resign if a motion of no confidence is adopted by the Diet. Under the constitution, Cabinet ministers are appointed after the selection of the Prime Minister. A majority of the Cabinet, including the Prime Minister, must be members of the Diet, all members must be civilians. Under the Cabinet Law, the number of Cabinet Ministers must be fourteen or less, but this may be increased to nineteen if a special need arises. In the event that the Cabinet collectively resigns it continues to exercise its functions until the appointment of a new Prime Minister. While they are in office, legal action may not be taken against Cabinet ministers without the consent of the Prime Minister.

The Cabinet must resign en masse in the following circumstances: When a motion of no confidence is adopted, or a vote of confidence defeated, by the House of Representatives, unless there is a dissolution of the house within ten days. Upon the first convocation of the Diet after a general election to the House of Representatives; when the position Prime Minister becomes vacant, or the Prime Minister declares his intention to resign. The Cabinet exercises two kinds of power; some of its powers are nominally exercised by the Emperor with the binding "advice and approval" of the Cabinet. Other powers are explicitly vested in the Cabinet. Contrary to the practice in many constitutional monarchies, the Emperor is not the nominal Chief Executive. Instead, the Constitution explicitly vests executive authority in the Cabinet. Hence, nearly all of the day-to-day work of governing is done by the Cabinet. In practice, much of the Cabinet's authority is exercised by the Prime Minister. Under the Constitution, the Prime Minister exercises "control and supervision" over the executive branch, no law or Cabinet order can take effect without the Prime Minister's countersignature.

While Cabinet Ministers in most other parliamentary democracies theoretically have some freedom of action, the Japanese Cabinet is an extension of the Prime Minister's authority.

List of critically endangered insects

As of July 2016, the International Union for Conservation of Nature lists 195 critically endangered insect species, including 46 which are tagged as extinct. 3.2% of all evaluated insect species are listed as critically endangered. The IUCN lists two insect subspecies as critically endangered. No subpopulations of insects have been evaluated by the IUCN. Additionally 1702 insect species are listed as data deficient, meaning there is insufficient information for a full assessment of conservation status; as these species have small distributions and/or populations, they are intrinsically to be threatened, according to the IUCN. While the category of data deficient indicates that no assessment of extinction risk has been made for the taxa, the IUCN notes that it may be appropriate to give them "the same degree of attention as threatened taxa, at least until their status can be assessed."This is a complete list of critically endangered insect species and subspecies as evaluated by the IUCN. Species considered extinct by the IUCN are marked as such.

There are 72 species in the order Orthoptera assessed as critically endangered. Moths and butterflies Includes damselflies.

Canadian Breweries

Canadian Breweries Limited Brewing Corporation of Ontario, was an Ontario-based holding company in the brewery industry. The company was founded in 1930 by a merger of two breweries, Brading of Ottawa and Kuntz of Kitchener-Waterloo. Under the direction of its top executive, E. P. Taylor, the company bought or merged many of the smaller competitors existing after the repeal of prohibition; the new company closed many plants, reduced the number of beer brands and built new, larger plants to produce enough beer for a much larger geographic area. By the 1950s, the company had reduced the number of beer brands from one hundred to six. Canadian Breweries became part of a large conglomerate of consumer and manufacturing businesses controlled by the Argus Corporation in 1945. Canadian Breweries was one of the "Big Three" Canadian brewers that dominated the Canadian beer market for many years. In 1969, the company was sold to the South African-owned Rothmans inc. and it was renamed Carling O'Keefe. After a few changes of ownership, the company merged with Molson, itself now merged into the Molson Coors Brewing Company.

Molson Coors continues to produce Carling brand beers, including Old Vienna. Another brand, Red Cap, based on Carling Red Cap, is brewed by the Waterloo Brewing Company. In 1928, E. P. Taylor's family owned the Brading Brewery of Ottawa, a brewer since 1867. Taylor presented a plan to the directors to capitalize on the recent legalization of alcohol in Ontario. Brading, while brewing in Ontario, had only sold its beer in Quebec. Taylor had studied the brewing business in Ontario. In 1928, there were 37 breweries in Ontario, they operated at below capacity and many were in need of modernization. They had only CA$12 million in sales on assets of CA$24 million. Quebec was dominated by three breweries, one of them, National Breweries, had consolidated 14 breweries that had operated before World War I. Taylor proposed a similar strategy to Brading's board of directors – acquire and merge with successful breweries in Ontario, acquire and close other breweries to bring under its control some 70% of the volume of beer sold in Ontario.

While the stock market crash of 1929 meant that the plan could not be funded by securities, Taylor proposed selling stock in Brading when acquiring firms. The strategy changed in 1930, when Taylor met Clark Jennison, representing British interests, able to invest CA$500,000 in Canadian breweries. Taylor and Jennison incorporated Brewing Corporation of Ontario in March 1930 by merging Brading Breweries Limited with Kuntz Brewery of Waterloo, backed by CA$500,000 from the British interests of Industrial General Trust and Atlas Investment Trust. BCO acquired British American Brewing Company and Taylor & Bate of St. Catharines, founded in 1834. In August, the company merged with Canadian Brewing Corporation Ltd, which owned Dominion Brewery in Toronto and the Regal Brewery in Hamilton; that year, Taylor negotiated the purchase of Carling Brewing Co. from the Dominion Bank, which had gotten control when the company needed money to continue. In October 1930, the company changed its name to Brewing Corporation of Canada Ltd. to reflect its objectives.

When Canadian provinces prohibited alcohol consumption, federal law did not affect production for export. For some breweries those close to the U. S. border, a period of prosperity existed during Prohibition in the United States. Taylor served as Vice President of Burmuda Export Co. a brewery industry company that aimed to control prices and exports of beer. Taylor's expansion was aggressive and, during the 1930s and 1940s, his holding company acquired about thirty Canadian brewers. In 1931, it purchased Budweiser Brewing Company of Canada, located in Belleville; that same year, co-founder Jennison died, Taylor purchased his shares. Continuing the acquisitions process, Taylor made an unsolicited takeover offer to the Cosgrave Brewery and threatened a potential price war; the offer was rebuffed, but Taylor persisted and the Brewing Corporation started purchasing Cosgrave stock on the open market. By the end of 1934, it had a controlling share of 80%; the pace of acquisitions and consolidations caught up with the company.

It had to halt its drive in 1932 and had to return to its London investors to secure an operating loan when their bank refused a CA$800,00 line of credit and called in their debt. The Depression had an effect on beer sales. With unemployment at 19%, beer sales dropped to 16 per cent of capacity from 25 per cent; the Brewing Corporation posted no profits from 1930 to 1934. In 1934, the company purchased O'Keefe Brewery outright for CA$2.07 million. The purchase had to be financed, this time the funds were raised through Scottish investor John Paul and the London investors; the O'Keefe Brewery on Victoria Street in Toronto would remain in use until 1966, when production was moved to a new plant in northwest Toronto. In 1934, the Windsor Riverside Brewery was acquired through the purchase of securities held by its banker; the brewery was wound up, its sales picked up by Brewing Corporation's British American Company, located in Windsor. The business was not limited to Canada; the Peerless Motor Company's James A. Bohannon approached Taylor to seek the rights to Carling beer in the United States.

In exchange for 25,000 shares of Peerless, which exited the automobile business, Bohannon's Cleveland, Ohio brewery became Carling Inc. and began brewing Carling brand beer under license. The US business would grow to seven breweries by 1971 when the company closed the Cleve
