Ministries of Japan

The ministries of Japan are the most influential part of the executive branch of the Japanese government. Each ministry is headed by a Minister of State appointed by the Prime Minister. In postwar politics, the posts of ministers have been given to senior legislators of the LDP. However, few ministers serve for more than one or two years to develop the necessary grasp of the organisation to become influential. Thus, most of the power lies with the senior bureaucrats; the Cabinet Office is responsible for handling the day-to-day affairs of the Cabinet. It consists of: National Public Safety Commission National Police Agency Consumer Affairs Agency Financial Services Agency Fair Trade Commission Food Safety Commission Imperial Household Agency Home Ministry Ministry of War Ministry of the Navy Ministry of Colonial Affairs Ministry of Greater East Asia As a result of the Central Government Reform in 2001, many Ministries are reformed.

Spooks (1930 film)

Spooks is an animated short subject produced by Walter Lantz, stars Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. First glimpsed stalking through a cemetery, a phantom is seen, wearing a hat and coat (who, being magical, will be shown to be able to fly as well as pass through small openings. While travelling through the air, the phantom finds a studio where actors are making auditions while others are doing rehearsals; as he enters, he sees a female cat weeping. The phantom asks why she is crying. Speaking unintelligibly, the cat tells him she wants to sing at the audition and make it to concerts, her tongue is knotted, thus she can not say a simple word. Feeling sorry for the cat and falling in love with her, the phantom decides to help out. To assist his love interest, the phantom places a phonograph in the cat's skirt so she may lip sync as a record plays a song; the cat performs her act, although it isn't a smooth one. The record slows down. However, the studio staff watching don't seem to mind; when the record stops in the middle of the song, the phantom secretly comes to her aid and turns the phonograph's cluster.

The song continues and the cat'sings' again. She manages to do well on the final lines, to the delight of those attending; as the cat gets down from the stage, the overjoyed phantom decides to congratulate her with an embrace. Much to the phantom's surprise, the cat sidesteps him and walks to another guy standing behind; the other guy is none other than Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Feeling insulted, the phantom takes her to a secret room within the studio. Upon reaching his secret place, the phantom decides to play the organ of the room; as he plays, he advises the cat not to take off his mask. Curious of why she should not, the cat opts to do; as she removes the mask of her captive, the cat is surprised to find out that the phantom's face has no skin or flesh, is therefore a skeleton in garments. Oswald somehow knocks on the door loudly. Disturbed by the noise, the phantom decides to confront the rabbit. Seeing the phantom fly toward him, Oswald runs away as as he can. On his getaway, Oswald falls into a hole.

On landing upon the bottom floor, the rabbit is bumped by a few large lizards. Oswald thinks his troubles are over, but more still await as the phantom follows him there. Instead of tormenting the rabbit, the phantom chooses to just ask a riddle, he asks "What does the chicken say when it lays a square egg?" Not sure of an answer, Oswald admits to not having any idea. The phantom slaps Oswald in the face, causing the rabbit to say "Ouch!" The warlock discloses to Oswald that "Ouch!" was the answer and he elatedly disappears. From on, nobody sees the phantom again; the short is available on The Woody Woodpecker and Friends Classic Cartoon Collection DVD box set.
