Posted in: What's up with the Bank of Japan stance on interest rates? See in context

A question to Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda.

If I eat 1 apple out of 4 apples, how many will be left?

The answer probably will be?

I'm still calculating. Because you didn't eat it all.

The foreign student has to consult the lawyer's association before the school leaving action. Every action has it's cost and this one made the situation much complicated.

Posted in: Japan, U.S., S Korea reaffirm joint response to N Korean threat See in context

I've seen a S. Korean fictional movie where there are confronting of SK and NK on the sea. Ironically, a Japanese submarine is involved at the border. SK and NK communicating the same language, and Japan seems to be the enemy to idealize the script of "one" Korea. If diplomatically they become one it's acceptable, but military confrontation looks like Japan to be the foe.

The best compromise between Japan and China is to Japan sell those islets. It's not worth wasting time and public money on this dispute.

MacD will leave Russia selling franchise system to Russian owners and will be the same western sanctions or not. Anyhow, I wonder =Z= propaganda of this Putin's regime still going really will help the taste of Russian freedom. I think MacD do much better slogans to "manipulate" Russians with =M=.

Posted in: Finland, Sweden submit NATO membership application See in context

All Scandinavians to be same school, that's good! NATO wasn't made to confront Russia or former USSR --The real mean of this organization is to all NATO countries not fight each other. And it was good Russia not to belong to NATO or Putin would betray the treat and invade countries to annex countries to his regime...Turkey is in a difficult position if leave NATO, I remember Turkey having military coup against Erdogan. And it will be much easier Putin regime to overthrow Erdogan to put a pro-Russian puppet government.

This headless Buddha image goes against the title. Anyway, this communist China is not interested in Buddhism. What China wants is to own more property where the land has in terms of wealth.

Posted in: Foreign fighters in Ukraine await weapons in chaos of war See in context

I saw 2 guys from Brazil interviewed by Brazilian press. Very different the situation between them, one of them just arrived west of Ukraine and he found himself in a ragtag army of foreign volunteers training to fight and Russian missiles hit them, many od them died in fraction of seconds, an inexperienced volunteer who ran away to finally reach Poland. The other one is in Kyiv who lives there, he knows well the city and protect civilians to evacuate to bunkers, he isn't there to fight, but he said that he can die for Kyiv, it's his second hometown and his duty is to protect the Ukranian capital at any cost.

Are we in 21 century? Right or left ideology? The endless materialism everywhere and economy in collapse? Well, this Ukraine war looks like the images of Europe 80 years ago, in color. This war is Putin sovereign Russia against NATO countries, and Ukraine is a victim of this confrontation. I just want this nightmare ends and people in the world to wake up...

Posted in: COVID-19 entry ban could deter interest in Japan: UK scholars See in context

Barry, I don't agree to your too aggressive comment for Japanese ways for this or that to foreigners. But very interesting to see South American voices of blaming the UK the same way you comment here. Pandemic issue and cultural issues can't be the same matter, if you matter?

"Kyo wa heiwa dayo neDec. 28, 2021 07:38 am JST

China is reminding Japan stole the Ryukyus and that it definitely was Chinese territory. Japanese government throwing a tantrum isn't going to help much."

What do you mean by that?

Ryukyu will have the same civil problems/claims of HK, Tibet, Uyghur and Taiwan which doesn't belong to Mainland China. Definitely wrong!

Posted in: Chasm opens between COP26 words and climate action See in context

Typhoons changing courses, more shakes of earthquakes, erupting volcanoes, high tides, small-sized tornadoes, only in Japan can I see natural events changing paths only in one decade. I can see some exaggeration of politicians, but we have to contain materialism or crises will turn into chaos. I'm an optimist, at the same time I don't want to deny the facts.
