Posted in: New bill will block convicted sex offenders from jobs involving children See in context

Are they going to be doing a background check on them as well? There could be perverted foreigners here as well

The JET programme requires national security backgrounds (eg FBI background check for the US applicants) before they can be considered for acceptance.

Even if the judge doesn't like kids, the guy can still be charged for willful damage of property (washing machine).

But the threat of arrest could make it difficult for the Israeli leaders to travel abroad.

Not really. Diplomatic immunity. US and Russian leaders, among others, can freely travel. They know it will be a titfortat if they don't allow

accused by one of her former aides of lying about graduating from Cairo University in Egypt and faking her diploma. She has claimed to have been an Arabic translator.

I'd like to know more about this and if the allegations were investigated

He had legal access to naked dudes of all ages with a bathhouse. Why was he not able to restrain himself rather than commit an illegal act?

Maybe instead of restaurants barring foreigners, maybe they should do that for bathhouses (as well as people caught photographing inside).

Posted in: French court clears director Polanski of defaming British actor who accused him of rape See in context

defaming a British actor whom he accused of lying after she alleged that he sexually assaulted her as a teenager

So she's trying to seek defamation for calling her a liar, but the guy us not trying to seek the same defamation for r@pe accusation? Can't have it both ways.

Defendants gotta defend, or would she rather he seek defamation suit against her for the accusation? Fairs fair.

The House of Councillors passed the bill with the backing of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party and its junior coalition partner, the Komeito party, as well as opposition parties...

whats the purpose of opposition parties if theyre just gonna pass the bills? China has those kind of "opposition" parties as well.

Also, iirc, the soviet union did something similar. Foreign currency vs domestic currency, as well as foreign-only shops and domestic shops. Ushanka Show on YouTube talks about this.

If he had a knife, why was he shot by police instead of just stabbed by police? Doesn't the law require proportionality when dealing with assailants?

Posted in: Japan child population shrinks for 43rd straight year See in context

By gender, there were 7.18 million boys and 6.83 million girls.

Confused. Is this how many children are left in japan out of 120+ million people, or is thar how many were born this year?

How about just fining the misbehaving tourists instead of punishing everyone? Can levy hefty fine, if needed. But the behaviour would need to be enforced for everyone, not just tourists.

The only way Australia can legally ban it is by having its own great firewall, banning foreign internet websites and such. The Australian politician wouldn't dare say this though as his career would be over.
