Posted in: Shows canceled as virus outbreak spooks Asian entertainers See in context

It spreads through anything. But the shows are cancelled Not because of public health. Just for themselves. That's the main priority, for everyone.

Looks like 8/10 Asian celebrities are all rounder entertainers. They act, sing, play, host etc.

Posted in: Can foreign-language films ever win over Hollywood? See in context

Most people don't like to watch Great classic foreign films, Not because of the subtitle But of the quality they think it is just not modern.

Nowdays most of the those Great classic films have been remux or remastered in very high quality. If they know this, they will try because those people do watch modern foreign shows in subtitle, E.g. Terrace House!

Posted in: 5 differences between Japanese and Western diet approaches See in context

All food depends upon every individual. Some Super healthy food won't make any good to some people.

If u visit South Asian countries and eat street food or at small cheap restaurants, most outsiders will have problem with their digestive system but won't be for the locals and same locals will have problem with their digestive system if they eat super healthy food.

Made Millions with making news like this.

Few years later, it's time for money again. So there will be headline, Bond to be Asian.

Then again a year later, Bond won't be an Asian. Makes Millions again.

Make the normal people quarrel between each other, they make money and we become fools.

Posted in: Women who have more sex have lower risk of early menopause: research See in context

But when a woman is on her period, let's say, around 17th of every month. Then 11th to 25th is no chance of sex unless the couple wants to have a baby. (For the baby, is it better to have sex few days Before her period Or few days After her period also raises the question)

So only around 15 days a month are remaining days for the sex. Then with those 15 days, time and mood makes difference. When husband wants sex, wife is busy or not on mood. When wife wants sex, husband is busy or he can't get up.

So periodically, married couples have sex between 1 to 7 days a month.

If only those products have also English names, at least the name of the product, then would be lot easier for tourist to buy it from small store. Economy grows by millions smoothly.

Btw, didn't know sweet potato skin is edible because all the veggies under the soil should peel the skin.

Posted in: No. of foreign visitors to Japan hits record high in 2019 See in context

I planned to visit this year but i guess after Olympics would be much better..maybe in 2021?

But do i have to carry big luggages from one place to other everytime? I want to buy some souvenirs plus some Japanese products. All less cost but good qualities.

I also need to carry hiking stuff and bicycle stuff, then all camera gear. It's going to be too heavy which won't make me comfortable enjoying the routes. Hiring a car for a month is also expensive.

Then i think i have to travel Japan as pilgrim.

Posted in: NHK's annual 'Kohaku' music show sees rating fall to record low See in context

Do we have to judge what's good or bad on each things?

Some shows are for some and some for some.

Let people enjoy what shows that can entertain them and you enjoy yours!

It's just the ratings down! Eventually it will go down further in some years because the generation is changing.

All the shows that this young generation are enjoying at the moment will be laughed out by next young generation anyway. Those Mukbang shows and those vids where people enjoying watching people playing video games and all those are all laughable but far better to ignore it.

Posted in: Fewer than 900,000 new Japanese babies this year for first time on record See in context

Just like S.Korea urging their netizens to make more babies and their comfort women history by making movies/dramas/plays for last 5,6 years,

Japan is also urging their any age of Japanese citizens to have more sex (like they used to before 80s) and have more Japanese babies by making movies/dramas about it.

Posted in: Considering Veganuary? Take B12 and beware vegan junk, scientists say See in context

Those hilly people living in hills/mountains don't know anything about these Vegans, Saturated Fats, B12 or whatever the name is, they have always been lived healthily up to 70, then few wear and tear up to 90.

The most important thing they know is that they feel good making their own food from farming to dishes and they know their body absorbs it happily and that makes them healthy.

Someone might force someone to make hate speech on someone who could also be doing the same thing on someone. It's always a roll-over esp when someone is behind the screen.

Posted in: University entrance exam to test reading, listening for English See in context

Don't blame Japan or Japanese. Blame the English language for being international and if this seems stupid, then let's be fair with this,

One of the three major (Japanese, Chinese Mandarin and Korean) should be compulsory language subject in most of the developed Western countries plus Australia and New Zealand and even Africa.

This way the world becomes more diversity than ever, not let dominated by English.

Only works in Taiwan and SouthEast Asian Countries.

And why these celebrities go for rich nations only? They are already dping what they can. So, Why don't they visit developing countries first and teach those about the proper environment if they really want to save the planet.

Perhaps they just want to highlight their status time to time, for the extra money and free stuff?

To work in Japan, u need to speak more Japanese than English. Don't show off your English! SouthEast Asian people are very arrogant at this plus they always blah blah about how life and work are much better in Western and why can't in Japan?

Because of the language English, Not Japanese.
