Posted in: Rescuers search for survivors as flood death toll reaches 110; 79 still missing See in context

Hiroshima prefecture lies in the middle of Chūgoku. Most of the prefecture consists of mountains leading towards Shimane Prefecture; and rivers produce rich plains near the coast and make it a natural bowl for the collection of massive rainfall waters. The city needs to exam better ways of drainage throughout the entire prefecture, this is not the first time they’ve experienced flooding following heavy rainfalls. That said, our prayers are with the families and friends of those who’ve lost the life’s and we wish a speedy recovery for all.

Same old story — catch 22. Professional Japanese activist must earn their daily bread (¥) too. It’s the same at all the U.S. installations throughout Japan. GOJ holds true to SOFA agreements in place.

Posted in: Allies confront Trump with trade numbers at tense G7 summit See in context

There’ not a country in the world that does not place high tariffs/taxes on U.S. imports to their country. American autos sold in Japan are accessed import taxes of 110%, I know this for a fact having been stationed there for 10.5 years. There are however many American made items that do not sale there due to poor U.S. marketing practices (No operating instructions in Japanneese). Canada, Mexico, and the EU governments use tariffs on American imports as a means to bust there budgets and receive/ substitute taxzation on their own populations. They’re all crying “foul” to cover their longtime abuse of the Fair Trade Regulations that they’ve agreed to abide by, weaker past U.S. administration’s for whatever polical reasons have failed to call them on it . President Trump and his Economic advisors have crunched the numbers and the math doesn’t lie. As to Russia for all her faults the rest of the world can not exclude her from everything she remains a major power and needs to be recognized as such if were to come together in the future as a goble community.

The real damage to sales will be felt at home and in other countries with extremely high gas prices. Most consumers base their purchasing of automobiles upon the written reviews they tend to read, as I do. However we consumers over the years have “developed” our favorites especially in the various models available in each class.

OMG, every year this exercise is conducted and every year NK makes virtually the same comments/ rhetoric — to many ney sayers are reading to much into this. We. need to concentrate on the July-in-Singapore meeting and it’s possible end to the Korean Action and the real possibility of the Reunification of the Korean peninsula and the verifiable end to the north’s dismantling and subsequent termination of all its Nuclear weapons and deleivery systems. In the intern hopefully the return of Japanese Abductives being returned.

Posted in: Japan welcomes Trump shift on TPP, but warns against renegotiation See in context

History tells us that the freest trade does not necessarily guarantee maximum growth of the world economy. It also tells us that the launch of the WTO regime and various other initiatives to further liberalise the world economy, including TPP, had, at best, a marginal effect on global economic growth. In this respect, President Trump's dumping of TPP and his intended revisions of other trade agreements themselves would not have strong negative effects on the world economy.

Posted in: Convicted thief escapes from open-type prison in Ehime See in context

For Jonney Knoxville; We have them in the U.S., they’re called “Federal Work Camps” and the inmates are actually bused to and from worksites and preform ground maintenance. Like Japan and several other countries worldwide these facilities as a whole detain individuals convicted of “white collard” crimes, street drug dealers, embezzlers, co-conspirators of crimes competed against persons, and etc. and if they “ violate” the rule/regulations established for the work camp confinement they are normally transferred to a hardline (regular) confinement facility. Here the transfer is going to be from one state confinement facility to another state i,e. Florida to Nebraska. Immediate families of inmates are known to move within close vicanity of these facilities because they’re permitted visitation rights on weekends and national holidays. This also works as a deterrent against the inmates violating the rules/regulations.

SOPA agreements between all countries that host U.S. military forces cover crimes committed again that countries nationals and jurisdiction of all crimes against host nationals is under their laws and adjudicated in their judicial systems. Findings of guilty that require incarceration will be served in host confinement facilities. Exception to the rule being “ Capital punishment” sentience with 20 yrs or more assigned are split 50-50 between the host and the U.S.

Posted in: Tokyo school ramps up security over Armani uniforms on first day See in context

Reading all these comments just amazed me of how little westerners understand Japanese Culture. It’s not something you can read in books or having never lived inside Japan amount the popular for a period of time — understand. Discipline, Courtesy , honesty, and Respect for other “are not” just “buss words” they’re Indicative of their daily lifestyle — family, education, jobs, debts, and honoring commitments are everything to them from adolescence to old age. There’s no other country in the AsIan realm that practices all of these aptitudes like the Japanese. School uniforms are for the most part identical with the exception of individual school identifying marking. I seriously doubt ridicule is a real worry by the students or cost of the uniforms giving them a “swell head”.

Posted in: Trump vows to deploy military to Mexican border See in context


The Act only specifically applies to the United States Army and, as amended in 1956, the United States Air Force. While the Act does not explicitly mention the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps, the Department of the Navy has prescribed regulations that are generally construed to give the Act force with respect to those services as well. The Act does not apply to the Army National Guard or the Air National Guard under state authority from acting in a law enforcementcapacity within its home state or in an adjacent state if invited by that state's governor. The United States Coast Guard, which operates under the Department of Homeland Security, is not covered by the Posse Comitatus Act either, primarily because although the Coast Guard is an armed service, it also has both a maritime law enforcement mission and a federal regulatory agency mission.

The title of the act comes from the legal concept of posse comitatus, the authority under which a county sheriff, or other law officer, conscripts any able-bodied man to assist her or him in keeping the peace.

Posted in: Trump says U.S. withdrawing from Syria very soon; 'let others take care of it' See in context

It’s so very hard to help those who are not willing to help themselves. Even if we stabilize Syria prior to withdrawal, little would have been accomplished if ISIS returns and the Syrians offer no resistance. This is a national problem throughout the Middle Eastren countries and a Prime example of what happens when a country doesn’t enforce its Borders. The Middle East, Europe and the Umuted States are experiencing the same problems disguised as “ humanitarian “ and it’s draining their own identities and Financial reserves to the point that their own citizens and inner structures are suffering many quality of life shortfalls.

Stormy has consensual sex all the time after all she is a “ professional adult movie actress”. She’s had to fake so many sexual encounters on screen it’s a wonder she’s able to remember them all. Like the Christian Bible quotes Jesus Christ “let those without Sin, cast the first stone” on in this instance “let those who’ve never had a casual consensual sexual encounter with anyone other than their hand” publicize it from the mountaintops.

Déjà vu 3 Mile Island incident all over again??? Following a sream leak in its piping system, also after a recent plant certification inspection In 1979 at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in USA a cooling malfunction caused part of the core to melt in the #2 reactor. The TMI-2 reactor was destroyed. Some radioactive gas was released a couple of days after the accident, but not enough to cause any dose above background levels to local residents, if we’re to depend upon Nuclear Engergy for our Electrial needs — due diligence is MANDATORY!

What’s the more important discussion and the Main reason for the upcoming meeting between the U.S. and NK —Nuclear purliferation and threats to World Peace or — a 40 year old dispute between GOJ and NK over Child Abduction of Japanese Citizens. The Chlld abduction question is between GOJ and NK period and needs to be addressed in the chambers of the UN since the discussions between GOJ and NK over the years has failed to produce a satisfactory solution ! Maybe GOJ should bar it’s citizens entry into the Korean peninsula for businesses or travel.
