Will the United States military come home in shame or will we save face? by sound_of_the_silenced2 Q: One way the other we WILL be coming home. Either our financial situation will force us to come home in shame. Or we can begin to close our overseas bases, save face, save money and come home voluntarily. History proves that when nations over extend themselves they inevitably collapse for financial reasons. Take for example the former Soviet Union, or Rome. Which one will it be? Its time to take inventory of our 700 overseas military bases and determine which are VITAL to our national security. Where are some bases that are not vital and could be closed?

A: i fear this administration will have our military picking sides when it comes home. those protecting the rights of americans and those who will just blindly follow

can you please explain this sentence? "face-saving is the dominant note in our exixtence"? by aepri Q: can you please explain this sentence? "face-saving is the dominant note in our existence" please explain this.. i really need it! thanks!!!

A: Face saving equals to one's dignity, one's honor, one's pride..In this world, life standard is not important but the quality of living life, how you reflect yourself to others, you may be poor but still live with dignity, you may be rich but you are out of honor...face saving is important in one's existence, without dignity, life is just as meaningless as you live your life...Be dignified no matter who you are....what you are and wherever you are!!!

Why do whites try to save face by pretending they have a job and Americans are still employed? by Q: Whites are notorious for trying to "save face" by making comments about how Americans are still rich, powerful and employed when they themselves are out of jobs. The more they do that, the more you see right through them and instead of feeling embarrassed for them, I feel sorry for them. Whites should just acknowledge they're broke and accept the consequences for their mishap.

A: insecure,pink folks they are. The truth is something you aren't going to get out of them

what dangers did the danish people face in saving most of their jewish friends and fellow citizens? by Q:

A: The danger was life-threatening in the most immediate and accurate sense of the word. The leadership shown by the King showed how a population can be inspired to do what is right, at the worst of times. Many heads of state and of government are weasels when it comes to really tough situations.

Saving Face - Facial Cleanser by Mo Q: After extensive research into ingredients, my derm has his new list ready for me to try. I'm a little confused & a little broke so need help in chosing the right candidate. 1. Free & Clear Liquid Cleanser - (Makers of Vanicream, PSI) 2. Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash - J&J 3. La Roche Posay Tolerine Cleanser 4. Aveeno Ultra Calming Cleanser If anybody has used any of these, please let me know. Help me save my face which is very sensitive, dry & has facial psoriasis. Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser, Cetaphil Bar, Aveeno Bar, Vanicream Bar, Dove Bar did not work for me as all fragrances irritate my face.

A: I've used Avenno foaming cleanser and it is soooo light and soft. I really think you'll love it. FYI: to remove psoriasis off the face get some sunshine, UVB stops the abnormal cell growth of psoriasis. Doctors recommended my boyfriend to use a stand up tanning unit in their office for 30 seconds (only UVB) so instead i started taking him to the tanning salon and it worked amazing!! Doctors just dont want you to go tanning because they cant profit off you that way, but unlike the creams that thin your skin, sun shine is the natural cure for psoriasis. Just make sure if your going outside dont use a cleanser for acne in the morning for acne products make you UV sensitive and likely to burn. 15 minutes during peak hours (11am-2pm) is more then u need!

Can angry Republicans save face and crash the stock market? by Keith Q: The stock market isn't continuing to dive. Rush said that Obama's plan must fail and plunge the country into a depression. What can we do to prove Rush right and stop Obama? The most important thing is for Rush to save face.

A: Did you blame Bush when it was over 14,000 during his second term?

Cultural terminology -- EQ versus saving/losing face? by Craftylass Q: As we all know, different cultures often say/experience the same thing, but express it in different ways. Emotional intelligence (or Emotional Quotient - EQ) is often expressed as the ability to recognize your emotions. It’s the ability to understand what your emotions mean. EQ is realizing how your emotions affect people around you. EQ also involves how you understand others – when you understand how they feel, this allows you to be a better part of the relationship with people. (This is the simple English explanation I wrote for my students. It's compiled from reading a ton of different websites on the topic.) Would you say that China's "saving face" or "losing face" is the same thing as EQ? I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions.

A: No. While EQ is the ability to recognize our emotions thus helpful in interpersonal relations, it also indicates if we have self control, self awareness and motivation all of which attribute to success in many other fields. Most employers are testing job applicants of management level their EQ which can reveal their thought patterns and what drives their behavior. Saving/losing face would be one of the many aspects an EQ evaluation exposes, it is not EQ per se. One simple test is to look at all the avid China fans in this section, they all score very high marks in saving face, but their EQ is in question, only a thorough test could tell.

Could anyone explain to me the Chinese custom of "saving face"? by Matt Q:

A: Hi Matt, Saving face in China is very easy to explain. When reports on "Melamine Milk" scandal got out, Chinese milk manufacturing company "Sanlu" bribed several tv news networks including the popular internet search engine "Baidu" with millions of money to block out news about their tainted products, in order to save face. My comrades in the Communist People of China also known as Wu Mao or 50 cent party regularly post anti-Western propaganda to bash on US and deflect any bad news in China. These people can also be seen in China travel forum of Yahoo Answers. They overturn any bad news in China by using multiple account trolls to gang up on a member in order to save face of China. In China, it's called saving face from criticisms, in other countries, it's called denial tactics and bribery. I would rather save my kitty cat's cute face. lol

What does "saving face" mean? by k8tie2237 Q: I heard it in the smashing pumpkins song "Today" he said - 'Bored by the chore of saving face.'

A: Well it means to save your credibility or your ethics... To save your dignity... After something bad happens or an embarrassment takes place, you try to "save face" by getting out of the situation by means of a good explanation or truth to tell all who think you did something bad... You try to save face by keeping your integrity intact...

Have you taught your child a face saving out if they ever know they're in a bad situation? by pdooma Q:

Anybody understand why Japanese women are so concerned with saving face? by randyboy Q: Some years ago I met a beautiful Japanese girl through a personals column in the local City Paper. Believe it or not, she live directly across the street from me and one building up. We talked on the phone a lot, were getting along very well, and arranged a date for Saturday night. She called me that Friday to cancel saying that she didn't want to "cast shame" on her family! I had really nice job but I don't have a college degree. She didn't specify any reason but I suspect that's it. A co-worker of mine, who lived in Japan as an exchange student, told me that the Japanese would rather commit suicide than cause any embarassment to the family! Isn't that really going overboard?

A: I suspect it's because you're white. Japan is a very conservative and reserved society in which ettiquette and moral behaviour and duty to one's family is of the utmost importance than just 'doing your thing'. It's the same all over Asia. In Japan, because they're so close-knit and reserved, not many outsiders are accepted. You've got foreigners who spend their whole lives in Japan and still not be fully accepted as Japanese in the society. They call white people in particular "gaijin", which is one step short from being degratory, almost like the insult 'nigg*r'. I suspect that she didn't want to bring 'shame' to her family because dating a gaijin would be something extremely frowned upon. This probably means her family is rather conservative, since some families in Asia now don't really bother too much about their children dating outside the gene pool.

Saving face after coming off too desperate? by la_brujita81 Q: My husband is emailing a guy from Craigslist about the possibility to become sort of an apprentince for him.. a construction company..The guy seemed to think that he lived too far away (only 45 min in traffic) and so I guess we tried to overcompensate too much.. to convince him.. Then the guy emailed my husband back and told him that he has "6 candidates (out of 43) to revise" and to "don't be too persausive" and that he has "enough experience on this. I work in construction from age 17" What can he say to save face and get this great chance without sounding too desperate or anything??

A: I would recommend that your husband lie low and not attempt to reconnect with the hiring person. Hopefully, any over-eagerness on your husband's part will hopefully disappear from the hiring person's mindset. Just take a big breath and ask your husband to just take it easy and take another breath along the way. Your husband sounds like he's eager to join the workforce. Again, he's not merely looking out for himself, but he wants you and your family to share in the great news, when he is offered the job! Good luck!

If you face the choice of saving one sibling or five strangers, what would you do? by adcamper92 Q: I was watching a tv show and this question made me think. How would you react in this scenario? Think in the logical sense, what would be the best scenario to approach?

A: Given the limitations of your scenario it would have to be my sibling. I don't believe anyone could be faulted for making a choice like that regardless of who they chose. ADDED: OK logically I would want to save the five strangers because I would be saving more lives.However, keeping within the parameters of your question, I would be acting emotionaly rather then logically. So I would save my sibling. Even the one who always picked on me when we were growing up. If you can give more details my answer might change.

When a teacher flubs up, does he have a face-saving psychological device? by Q:

A: Todd Minor: You flubbed that again, sir. Teacher: Todd Minor, there is no such word as "flub". Todd Minor: Yes, there is. It's in my dictionary! Teacher: Ah, well, I know that. I was just testing you.

On a scale of 1 to 10 how important for you is Honor and saving face? by Christopher C Q: and your political affiliation please...

A: I'm a liberal. I wouldn't worry about saving face if it meant costing anymore lives. Honor is important but if you truly have honor, you don't find yourself in positions where you must "save face".

Cons, are you really, really sincere when you say Romney could beat Obama or are you just saving face? by Q:

A: Romney IS Obama. It wouldn't make any difference if Romney beat Obama; it would be four more years of Obama's bullshit in either case.

Does anyone know of a similar movie to Saving Face? by IonicBree Q: Hello, I have to write a paper for my film class. I'm trying to find a movie similar to Saving Face so I can write what the difference and similarities are. So far the only movie I can think of is Double Happiness and maybe Romeo and Juliet. Thanks in advance.

A: Well.. The Wedding Banquet is similar in some aspects.. far more so than Romeo and Juliet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otYv1wnJSXE Another one that might be good is Fire http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116308/plotsummary Here's the trailer for Saving Face in case someone who hasn't watched it wants to check.. the trailer is pretty descriptive.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcvHpQiT7Kw

How can Obama say with a straight face he is saving the USA a trillion dollars over 10 years? by Q: Has he ever had a drug test since he became President?

A: Now this article was originally written in Oct, 2008. Lewin projected that the Obama proposal would increase federal spending by about $1.17 trillion over the 2010-19 period.[18] HSI estimates the Obama plan would cost $452 billion per year, or more than $6 trillion over a 10-year period.[19] The dramatic difference between this estimate and others is largely a result of HSI's assumption that under Obama's mandate to cover children, the federal government would subsidize virtually the full cost of coverage. Also, HSI finds that the employer mandate would add sizable costs to the federal government. The TPC projects the Obama plan would cost $1.6 trillion over 10 years. However, the TPC model did not account for any of the savings measures in the plan.

Dave need us to come up with a 'Face-saving' swift exit from Afghanistan- Can you help? by EarthCalling Q: David Cameron the PM said that he wanted a "people power revolution as part of his radical reforms" and called for an end to a "risk averse culture" and to trust the public.

A: Well, some years ago Canada set a date that we would be withdrawing from Afghanistan, and it seems we are sticking to it (February, 2011). No shame; we've done good work there, but it is time to leave.

What is the sequal to "Saving Face"? and where can I find it? by ms_crowned Q: It is a Chinese-American movie from 2005. It was a really good movie and I would love to see the sequal. Alice Wu wrote and directed the first. I am am trying to see if she did the sequel as well.

A: To my knowledge there is no sequel to Saving Face..

Is face saving important in American culture? by Q:

A: Well .. Politicians do it all the time (or at least try to do it) .. Celebs cover their rears (face-save) too (or they just don't care and will do anything to promote themselves via the media) .. For the AVERAGE Citizen .. we are just REAL .. we live our lives, EARN our INCOMES .. pay our Bills .. and hope we can make it another day.

Would this be considered an act of 'Saving Face'? by Snejana Q: Like when a girl is pressured by her friends to go to parties when her parents oppose to it until she reaches sophomore year in highschool or when a boy is pressured into smoking, drinking, drugs ... because of peer pressure and not wanting to be called a sissy for not doing them. I'm doing a research on The negative aspects of Saving face in the lives of the youth for my english class.

A: I would say that is an act of saving face since they're are trying to prove or protect some form of reputation.

If God's word is not true, then why should I believe your claims? Is it saving face or saving grace? by Q:

A: The Holy Bible, God's word, is true. It's not my claims, it's God's claims.

What does it mean when someone "needs to save face" or "saving face"? by im serious Q:

A: In sociology, I found out that this is a big thing among collective cultures like in Asia. When you are saving face it means that you try not to do things that will disgrace or hurt or put to shame the name of your family, or group, or institution, or corporations. In western cultures it mean nothing that's why you see people in high places or celebrities screwed up all the time and still it's not that big of a deal. In Asia, they use saving face to humble themselves. Face value, in our culture on the other hand, is very important where as in Asia it's not that important, dear. Good enough, dear, yes?

So Atheists: Are you looking for ways to return to Christianity while still saving face among fellow atheists? by Annie: Queen of Pundits Q:

A: Are you kidding? Very few return to the faith. They would be eviscerated by their former "friends". Odd, considering two days earlier they were sagacious and now they're suddenly illogical and irrational.

What creative ways can Obama use to get rid of Van Jones while saving face? by Teguci Q: Extra points for creativity: Some ideas: - Green Jobs field work - protester against Alaskan oil fields/pipeline bomber - North Korean field reporter - Trade him to Libya for political favors (could be used against us though) - Czar training in Moscow

A: I have to laugh at these people who find it to be discrimination to want the communist to resign from his position as green czar. I guess they don't realize what a powerful position this is that will effect the future of the United States without Congressional input. He can even make demands about who will be hired for what positions. He is a black radical, anti-white, self avowed communist. I think Obama will wait a week or two and then ask Jones to resign because he publicly called Republicans a**holes. Its my guess, his administration released that tape, not the republicans. He will never address the real reason for public outrage.

Do you ever feel like people will excuse their party of anything, just for the sole sake of saving face? by Chris Schock Q: I swear as moronic as poor Palin is, certain populations (aka rednecks, dingbats, etc.) will defend her. I think the woman could probably sleep with the pope and people would still be like "aww, that poor woman has worked so hard, she deserves to sleep with the pope, leave her alone." Is it just me, or are people really that stupid?

A: It's not just you, people really are that stupid. That whole "McCain is rushing back to DC so he can solve the financial crisis" baloney - we see how truthful THAT was. He was hanging out with Katie Couric, went to some birthday party while there, etc.

What is more important: our troops safe at home or saving face in spite of the facts in Iraq? by Che'Ghandi Q: simple question - the war cons say "support the troops" the rest of America says "we support our troops - bring them home NOW" so tell me - is it logical to say that you support the troops if you want them to stay in country to face possible death and disfigurement? I think those who actually SUPPORT the troops are the ones who are pushing and screaming to bring them home alive and as soon as humanly possible. It takes more courage to admit to a mistake than it does to continue on making things even worse.

A: Simple. Our troops safe at home. Sadly, control of government in the eyes of the Iraqis should be controlled by the victors of the sectarian violence, not the elections. Our soldiers shouldn't be the mediators in a never-ending INTERNAL conflict where loss of life and limb is a daily possibility. Let U.S. soldiers and U.S. tax dollars come back to the U.S. where DOMESTIC issues can be placed at the forefront rather than neglected like it has been for the past four years.

How much of George Bush's failure to admit failure in Iraq has to do with saving face? by Kiaspecter Q:

A: Alot. Because he watches spongebob and actally had a guest appearance on all that.

Saving Face and wanting to seen as a more masculine figure? by BPEN CHAI BORORO Q: Well i am in no way less masculine than he is , i run the garage etc, if anyone was more the den mother it be him .....well slightlly. But is it all just a masculinity issue that he wants me to change my name? saving face in eyes of his parents? We are both Thai

A: I'm assuming he wants you to take his last name? Does it bother you to take his last name? If it something he wants to save face with his family then why not just do it? The 'gender roles' do not have to apply to who takes on the others names. Besides there are enough hetrosexual marriages where the man can be more of the 'den mother' but his wife would still take his name. It doesn't have to mean anything or reflect the dynamics of a relationship. It's just a name.

Japanese System of Honor and Saving Face? by Q: What are the basic rules for the Japanese system of honor. I once saw an anime where a guy and a girl got into a motorcycle accident, and the school wanted to kick the boy out for being so reckless. I didn't really understand it. But it's not just that example, I want to know in a more general sense. Like if a boy asks a girl on a date how does she politely refuse? Also are there a set of rules for this and what are they called?

A: It is called Seken-Tei (世間体), which means the image in the eye of the public. Japanese people tend to exclude anomalies from their groups, so they often worry about Seken-Tei. Many people try to avoid troubles because they then become these anomalies. Kotonakare-shugi (事なかれ主義) is a policy where people highly value a decision of trouble avoidance and I think is widely seen among politicians. I think this is why Japanese politics are always too late to avoid troubles. People sometimes say it is bad for Seken-Tei (bad in public view) while making a decision. Many people worry about name values of their jobs, companies, and graduated universities, checking other people's status. It is because we are a homogeneous culture that has required conformity to a single view that we have rather a simplistic social evaluation measurement and we try to avoid inferiority in its measurement. Inferiority, too, can be an anomaly that can cause a person to be expelled from a social circle. Also, many people do not assert themselves, because strong assertion may cause them to be seen as trouble makers. "Sekentei-ni warui" (世間体に悪い) is a phrase that you may hear in Japan which means, this is bad for in public view. Save facing mentality may be strong in middle aged men. My manager at the office told me the men in 40s worry particularly of their images.

Is the UK government 'saving face' with regard to Afghanistan, rather than following any sensible policy? by GOD Q:

A: As. far as I'm concerned the UK is riding the fence with regard to Afghanistan. They want to stay in the good gracious of the United States, however, popular support for the war is nearly non-existent. The UK want to rid the Middle East of terrorism just like the United States and have a just reason to do so, the subway bombings about 5 years ago that killed so many. But, just like in the US, they want to end the war without quitting.

Why is saving face so important to Americans? by Laura Q: I've been in the United States for many years and it always puzzles me how people over here can never admit to having made a mistake. What's the big deal? Everyone always has an excuse ready and most of the time the excuse makes them look more stupid than the mistake itself. Why is it so hard for Americans to just admit they made a mistake? Thanks for answering.

A: its a sign of weakness to some, to admit you are wrong or that you dont know something. its pathetic isnt it?

Do you agree the McCain is simply a face-saving nominee in a year the Republicans can't possibly win? by longhaired freaky person Q: The bitterly-divided Republican party needs to go in for a serious re-tooling, and they will run the old war hero John McCain just to save face in 2008. That's right spivey.

A: Since there are no viable conservatives in the race you may be right. I hate to admit it.

Why is the USA military looking for a face saving way out? by Erudite Q: Information from Dept of Defense site:... Alberto Fernandez, director of public diplomacy in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs at the State Department,... offered an unusually candid assessment of America's war in Iraq......***."The occupier has started to search for a face-saving way out. The resistance, with all its factions, is determined to continue fighting until the enemy is brought down to his knees and sits on the negotiating table or is dealt, with God's help, a humiliating defeat***," he said. The United States Government is wanting to talk to the insurgents.

A: There IS no face saving way out. A responsible president would admit the terrible errors, apologize profusely, and withdraw forces immediately. But alas, we have a mental case in office instead.

saving face? by Lee Q: why do we back out ov arguments?

Saving Face!? by Vesdog! Q: Well the crazy-boyfriend girl told me in an email that she honestly hated my constant flirting w/ her. This is after I told her that I had no desire to hear about her strange relationship w/ crazy man. I Said I want her to be happy, but I have my own feeling to and the fact I wanted her has my girlfriend would cloud my opinions of being a true friend. Now last year and begining of this year I did casually flirt, nothing to raunchy or peverted. She never said stop and hinted that it bothered her. Also I told her after crazy-man yelled at me for calling her that we shouldn't be friends anymore. She insisted we still be buddies, I told her if she's in my life I will try to make her mine, she still insisted that we be friends. I was honest with her b/c I hated her always talking w/ me about this b/f at work. She never complained after a whole year and a half of my flirting until my last email. Is she hurt that I don't want to be friends w/ her or is she saving face b/c what i said? Or both

A: she wants to be friends because she is flattered by you but, its not worth it cause she will never be yours...look, you like this chick...she will either like you back or not...if she has a boyfriend then, you need to step back as a man no matter what she says... ...she cant have her cake and eat it too...she is playing with your emotions and you deserve better...i bet if you leave her alone...after awhile...she'll come runnin...and if not...its not meant to be...good luck
