You should be in bed, Mori-san. And don't forget to take your meds! You know how cranky you get without them.

The way I see it...most Asahi beers are horrible which unfortunately lead me to stop Izagaya, Yakotoriya bar hopping! Sapporo beer rules; Kirin is not bad.

Oops - the cat is out the bag! Aka...The Corporate Revolving Door - at best. Some referred this as briberies others as pay-offs. It's only a matter of time now for whistleblowers to come clean and then we'll see the true colors.

I would like this committee to also include reports on all viruses as well.

Posted in: Tokyo students take oral English test in high school entrance exam See in context

It begs the question...what Speaking proficiency level descriptor is being used for a (Mock) Test of 8 Qs in 15 minutes?

I can see it now:

Q1. What is your name?

Q2. Where are you from?

Q3. Where do you live?

Q4. When is your birthday?

Q5. Do you have any brothers or sisters?

Q6. What do you like?

Q7. What can you do?

Q8. Which do you like, (cats) or (dogs) [selective category]? Why?

Then Level:

Scale score 6 - 8...Level 3 Typically, test taker have limited vocabulary and grammar.

Scale score 4-5...Level 2 Typically, test taker is difficult to understand.

Scale score 0-3...Level 1 Typically, test taker may not have the proficiency skills (L/R) necessary to understand.

These "projections" are going to cost lives. This lower house "team" needs to be fired.

Posted in: Costa Rica scores late to beat Japan 1-0 in lackluster game See in context

The first half might have been one of the worst of the tournament that has already seen four 0-0 draws. Neither team had a shot on goal in a tactical stalemate.

Excellent observation JT. This was a pivotal moment and I realized if Japan failed to score in the first half, then they will eventually draw or lose...sure enough - lost! And it goes without mentioning Japan continues to display a very weak kicking game. Best of success against're gonna need it!

Posted in: Trial of English-speaking test for Tokyo high schools face opposition from some parents See in context

The students will be scored on a six-tier scale for grammar and pronunciation, among other aspects of speaking ability, with "A" being the highest and "F" the lowest.

Isn't that nice..."F" the lowest, meaning "0" will be added to the final scoring criteria just to ensure "no-one feelings" are hurt. So, F no longer stands for Failure - goes to prove how education is sure improving these past years.

Speedy recovery to the princess. That said, she is only to remain at her residence until this Saturday...why is she allowed to waive the protocol of 2 weeks quarantine like the rest of world? Has Japan changed the policy and practice for the 'noble class'?

Relinquishing his post tells us something bad is about to take place in the global monetary systems and bailing now, with the hefty wealth he has managed to pull off, is his course of action.

What I find completely hilarious is that there is NO report (if any) provided of the amount of children infected that would lead "A Japanese health ministry" (begs the question: Is there more than one ministry?) to receive this shot?!

Japan should exercise more discretion publishing "non-white" words. I find this extremely offensive and discriminatory. You should retract.
