Posted in: Abe's abrupt call to close schools triggers confusion See in context

Abe,  should have at the start of this closed off all the doors to China for the safety of Japan.  Now, that South Korea has this virus due to the cult and not the average South Korean should be closing doors to them as well.   There are only 2 weeks of school left, and Abe seen the signs and should have at the start of this past school week given heads up to all parents and the schools that may be a real possibility instead of springing it on everyone like a yo-yo up and down having parents scrambling.

I am glad I ordered off Amazon for my son and I the industrial masks with filters and just ordered washable filters they wont be a hundred percent safe proof, however, they are a step up from the paper masks.  In addition, I ordered safety glasses and disposable gloves and we will be wearing them out and we may look like Aliens at this point I really do not care.

Why doesn't Abe just close off all flights from China and South Korea that would make more sense than hurting our children education.

Nissan bit off their nose despite their face. Digging a hole so deep that there is no way sunshine will ever enter again.

Nissan bigwigs shot themselves in the foot when they went after Ghosn and his many efforts on their behalf to get this company on a solid setting, and now, LOL they are paying the price for their ignorance, hatred and prejudice towards Ghosn. I only see this company going bankrupt as no one is going to buy their product when there is no guarantee they can buy parts and get their car serviced in years to come. Best of luck, Nissan.

I just ordered proper air filtration masks on Amazon costing 52 dollars a piece for my son and I. Twice a week I must travel on the crowded rush hour train to work and I am not taking the risk, and in addition my son and I will travel on the plane Golden Week and I want to know we are wearing the proper masks to give us the utmost protection.

Should Japan choose to go forward, and should the virus get worse it won’t matter what Japan or the Olympic committee wants if the atheletes back out that seals the fate of the start or the end of the games.

I have dealt with the legal system not criminal, however, it did not matter I was a foreigner no chance. With that said, I was to learn from my Japanese lawyer it does not matter if you are a foreigner or not when you are dealing with the government or prosecutors zero chance no matter how rock hard your evidence is.

Posted in: Downtown Tokyo's homeless fear removal ahead of Olympics See in context

Why don’t they rehab a small town where there are many empty homes and pay the homeless to repair them. Afterwards they can live in them, and where they could collectively be taught a trade and or teach a trade or craft to others. This permits them to keep their dignity and not a burden to society. Japan could be a role model for other countries.

Stay away from places like Asakasa where the Chinese love to go and where the crowds are thick.  I teach there every week and from next week I will be wearing a mask until I get to my class.  Scary, really and unbelievable that they are not putting a full ban on people coming over until the situation is under control.

There are plenty of children who are in orphanages not being treated with respect, love and kindness during their stay which can be a life time. Once they become of age get tossed out with a brown paper bag of items and told good luck.

Take care of the children who are alive now and not worry about creating more. Once you take care of the ones in the orphanage and really care talk about how to make more.

Posted in: Man arrested for robbing convenience store says he hadn’t eaten for 3 days See in context

First, if indeed this man had not eaten for 3days his mental faculties would have diminished some making his choices or actions out of character. My guess after getting the money he got himself a meal, and the realization of what he had done made him pick up the phone to the police.

Food kitchens may exist here, however, they are surely few in nature and not well publicized.

My prayers go out to this man and all those many others who may be in the same situation.

there is no excuse for the driver who rammed the car. However, was this little girl in a car seat which is recommended until a child is 7. My son was in one until 7 and he disliked it. I even dragged it with me to India and every car we drove in that car seat was to be found. A headache for sure, however, safety paramount.

I am proud to be a Canadian and proud of these guys.  With that said, I agree with another comment that many other teams I am sure would have done the same thing were they in the area and or had the time made available to them.  Blessedly, the Canadian team had and did right by these people in a time of need.

Posted in: Man arrested for abandoning body of 85-year-old mother 80 kms from home See in context

There are so many cases like this, today.  Very frightening how society is declining because families do not want and or know how to deal with their deadbeat kids.  One of my student's older brother is in high school, and this boy's mother complains everyday how her son does not want to study and or even wants to finish high school and there are only months left.   I can see if he makes it through high school he will just sit in his house while his parents go out and work and support this kid's sorry arse.  I told her she needed to stand up to her son and or she and her husband would be one of these statistics when they are grey and could no longer give him this little cushy life.

Posted in: Gov't to study whether to introduce joint custody of children See in context

Norman Goodman, I am not sure how long you have been in Japan and or your personal experiences with Japanese woman but I am going to guess not much.

As a Western woman who has lived in this country for 20 plus years have seen Japanese women prior to and after they have married not to only foreign men but Japanese men, too.  It is shocking how their characters change after marriage, they change from contrite, submissive to where is your money and they have away that is so manipulating and controlling and they are sly as foxes.  With that said, that is how they were raised and it is in their DNA for sure.

I tell foreign men date, however, never marry and or you are going to nothing but troubles now and in the future.

Posted in: Gov't to study whether to introduce joint custody of children See in context

Pros and Cons for both, and unfortunately there is no happy medium in this country.

I am a western woman, got pregnant (shockingly due to age) when engaged to a Japanese man, however, broke it off prior to knowing I fell pregnant. When I found out and informed him, however, told him I did not wish to marry him but would love to co-parent and raise the baby together he went to Court and denied he was the father. Why? Because he di not want any financial responsibility, and this was a main reason I broke it off with him he was so friggin stingy and wanted control over my own money even though we did not live together.

10 years later he skipped out paying for all 4 or 5 lawyers the first 2 or 3 he let his mother pay this is a man who makes over a hundred thousand a year. He will sink as low as he mentally unstable and yet can buy a million and half dollar home. Now his goal is to have visiting rights to our son with the goal to take custody of him so he does not have to pay child support, and I would be happy to have our son live with his father if I knew he would invest in his life and future but he would not he would instead he would cheat and or take short cuts on his life.

Now I know there are many parents who are being separated from their children who are the polar opposite of my ex and are so deserving to be in their children lives' but are not because of wives and or partners' like my ex selfish and only care about themselves.

Now, I do not want my son involved with his father so that the man can mess with his mind.

So complicated..again there are no happy mediums in this country it is only black or white.

I do not envy that ship's captain and or crew. Guarantee every single one them were hauled off to jail, ASAP. The owner will have to pay a huge big friggin fine to get his ship back, and I am sure he will have to pay all the legal fees for those arrested and detained.
