Japan should emulate the law and order system of SINGAPORE because NOTHING LIKE THIS EVER OCCURS IN SINGAPORE.

You often comment on this subject, but none of your comments is backed by facts.

My facts come directly from the source. I have been inside those centers and can prove everything that I say.

Most of the things I have said regarding the issue are already known to people involved with the issue. Why not send an email to the Nihon Ishikai and ask what they think of the doctors who are working at the immigration centers, or about the immigration center's stance on HIV and Hepatitis prevention?

I could also give you a list of the hospitals that Japanese immigration has hand-picked to meet its standard of violation of UN protocol; but I don't think you'd actually ever follow up on it. A fair amount of the information I have provided has been published on JT and with Reuters

I don't know exactly whether intelignet life can exist on other planet or not, but I hope it's there. You know, there are about hundreds of billions of individual galaxies in the observable universe, and each one of those galaxies has about hundreds of billions of individual stars. So, I think it's not wrong to say that there cannot be intelignet life out there. Additionally, if there is human like life that can communicate with, we have an opportunity to learn something from it such as "how are we born in the universe?" "Why are we in the universe?"

Separation seldom leads to friendly relations when the separation is over religion.

Full integration at all levels is needed. Starting with 4 yr old in day-care all the way up to the highest govt offices. Treating the other guy how you want to be treated.

People may be careless to smoke, but they are even more so by not snapping that filter of the end.  who needs it? Next remove the paper and the glue. Lastly, find an organic brand. Much less harm.

But Prez Trump is stiill better than the alternative last fall.

However, it seems to be time to clean house. President Trump has shown poor judgment in a few key appointments.

If anything illegal has happened, nail them all. Impeachment is just the first step.

Insult/satirise the pomposity of religion not the people, I guess. Did not the Grauniad show solidarity with Charlie Hebdo - no stranger to "satire" on religion?

Ssems like that solidarity didn't stretch to showing the cartoons. I suppose the Guardian wasn't alone.

My last job in the UK was office engineer for BT. About 5,000 employees. Different workers needed different conditions so I would adjust the temp according to the needs who in turn were happy that someone was taking care of them.

Different people have different tolerances for heat for optimum performance. Some of my friends (often those born between the tropics of Cancer & Capricorn) feel more productive when the temperature is around 28. Personally, since I was raised in a temperate climate, I function best at 22 or 23 in all seasons. I begin to wilt at 25. In an office, obviously compromises are necessary.

Since it's easier to put on a sweater or, in the case of the office lizards, to put on a blanket than have everyone sweating, it makes sense to go a little lower than 28. Unfortunately, air conditioners blast icy air which is uncomfortable and doesn't create an even temperature throughout the room. Bad luck if your desk is directly under the vent. Other cooling systems such as heat exchangers are more comfortable.

I don't know why (with all its technical prowess) Japan is so resistant to innovation in this area. Instead, nostalgia for highly uncomfortable tradition abounds.

"Once again we see Japan bending international agreements to suit themselves. International trade in ivory was banned over twenty years ago. Are we to believe they had stockpiles of ivory to carry through to today? I've seen hanko shops advertising rhino and elephant ivory hankos in Tokyo."

I don't understand economics. They say the Philippines is growing strong economically yet it still has a stubbornly high, shockingly high, undiminished, poverty rate. Well...seems like a country with problems and a leader even more so.

It doesn't matter how anyone sees it. It's not relevant.

Yes, it is relevant that people view the hijab, etc. as oppression. That perceived oppression is one of the drivers of islamophobia, which is what this article is about.

Additionally, if it is irrelevant, delete the post.

Yeah, I'll be having nightmares about this. I would like to start a club of misanthropes. We can all gather somewhere and ignore each other. Or, even better, publicize where we're meeting so we can all not show up. Who will join me?

Yubaru,

Is that all you can say? Unless you can offer a logical argument as to why a replacement facility for Futenma must be built in Henoko even at the cost of environmental destruction, your statement above doesn't go beyond a parting shot, indicating you threw in the towel.

no, perhaps just your understanding of tense and modal verbs.

And the professional reporters who also made similar statements as me except for those conservatives who don't want to admit that he was another very confused individual with extreme right-wing views.

Once again directly from the man's own social media:

He wrote: Nov 11, 2016 "Just want all my FB Peeps to know I could not bring myself to vote Trump like I said I would. I abstained from voting for the first time in my adult life. My vote would not have done anything for anyone."

This is proof he supported Trump before Nov 11. After that, he like other Trump supporters became feed up with Trump too.

Then, months after he wrote about his murderous intentions:

"I've had it!!! I gonna kill everybody who voted for Trump or Hillary!!! It's all your fault!!! You're what's wrong with this country!!! Reveal yourselves immediately and face your DOOM!!!"

Those pesky fact!

Abe is an international trouble maker. He lied in three ways: 1 Japan has no sovereignty over Shenkakus, 2 There is no dispute in South China Sea over sovereignty claim by China, 3 Japan has no right to navigate international water militarily.

actually its not, since that does not support the claim he "LATER" supported Trump.

His own social media posts showed he later supported Trump because he didn't like Hillary.

He said:

Since so many were frothing at the mouth immediately blaming President Trump - It matters a hell of a lot.

They did it to Obama for 8 years and hated him because he is black and geriatric white Conservatives think he was born in Kenya. It's only fair. But aren't Trump supporters mad at Trump because Trump failed to keep his promise about having Hillary arrested? Then there is the wall (what won't be built- and even if it was Mexico won't pay for it)
