Lightbulb Wako Uni

Wako University (和光大学 Wakō Daigaku) is a private university in Japan, which is located in Machida, Tokyo.Wako University is part of a comprehensive educational institute called Wako-Gakuen (和光学園) (meaning Wako schools), that includes kindergarten, two elementary schools, junior high school and high school. All schools are located in Tokyo.In fact, the university has direct attached schools, so that people who have attended from the elementary school are relatively wealthy and then they directly go to the university without taking an examination..
In five coordinated attacks, the perpetrators released sarin on several lines of the Tokyo Metro, killing thirteen people, severely injuring fifty and causing temporary vision problems for nearly a thousand others. The attack was directed against trains passing through Kasumigaseki and Nagatachō, home to the Japanese government. It is the most serious attack to occur in Japan since the end of World War II..
In 2004, Wako University accepted one applicant, however, upon learning that the applicant was the daughter of Shoko Asahara, the mastermind behind the Sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway, they rescinded her acceptance. This was quite a controversial event and even led an assistant professor, Eiji Otsuka, to resign in protest. Ironically, the president of the university at the time, Osamu Mitsuhashi, was a professor of sociology who had recently published the book "Notes of discrimination"...
The Waco siege began on February 28, 1993, and ended violently 50 days later on April 19. The siege began when the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), accompanied by several members of the media, attempted to execute a search warrant at Mount Carmel Center ranch, a property of the religious group Branch Davidians located in the community of Elk, Texas nine miles (14 kilometers) east-northeast of Waco, Texas... He says in Aggressor that his last job with the Regiment was supervising and being actively involved in the infamous Waco siege in 1993..
