Somebody should have instilled in her mind that you don't ever
get in a car with someone you don't know.
I'm thinking she won't ever forget, now.
That guy was a drooling wolf, waiting for an innocent lamb...

Wow, it isn't enough the stress of a new teaching job, but to bear these
losers and their pathetic behavior when you are an otherwise a strong male adult?
No one should have to endure this kind of crap while being a student, or a teacher.
A job's security should be merit based, not how long you stay and harass others.

Gotta love the media. The preparations for the Tokyo 2020 are going well. The media is grasping for straws. First it was the weather, now it so call security staff shortage. What is next? Not enough food at the venues?
I read some time ago, that there were concerns over the use of water,
during the Olympic games season...
The most effective way to regulate the use of water is to ratchet up
the fees to use it.
Like "fuel surcharges" on the cost of flights, ( that never went back down when fuel stabilized )
who wants to guess if the cost of water will be raised, and not returned to previous rates?

Saikawa apologised on Thursday and vowed to return any improperly paid funds as he admitted to Japanese reporters that he had wrongly received stock-related compensation under "a scheme of the Ghosn era".
Striking that false humility, "who me?" pose so many Japanese do,
to render themselves blameless.
If anything, this is bonafide proof that his behavior is equal to
the charge that Ghosn has been only accused of.

"The criminal legal system is designed so that we must look at the evidence," Sogi told reporters at the Tokyo Prosecutors Office. "Overall balance is important."
Translation: Lock him up so we can make evidence "balance" in our favor,
and he can't do a thing about it.

You are saying child abuse is a choice on the part of the child? Children who sell their bodies are not making an informed choice. Where was this child's parents, teachers, neighbours? Why did they all ignore what she was doing, her pregnancy? If we neglect our children we cannot blame them for their self destructive behaviour.
This girl ( 16 is over the age of consent ) drops her newborn infant and leaves it in a bag,
and this is about her being abused?
I'm thinking she kept her pay-date activity secret, and after the pregnancy
went into denial until a baby dropped.
I don't know how or why her parents could not see she was pregnant,
she obviously kept a lot of secrets.
There are places where a pregnant person can turn, if they need to,
but you have to seek them out.
This girl took no action except to call a girlfriend to help cover her ass,
about 9 months too late.
You can blame everyone else for her behavior,
but at some point, she'll have to own up to it.

Maybe if there were better shoe styles/designs in lower heels, it wouldn't make a difference what heel height a woman chooses to wear to work.
They have some of the most unflatteringly ugly shoes styles here,

> What does Israel have to do with her job as a politician in the US?
Nothing. She is not a politician, she is an activist, using her elected position in Congress,
to further her anti-Trump, anti-Israel agenda.

Japanese people and those who live here bear the train crowding,
but at Summer Olympics with foreign guests, it will be ugly.
They have put new bars between 2 seats (what used to be between 4)
to guarantee the "right" amount of people squeeze in seats.
These bars hurt as they press on hips, legs.
I give up a seat often, as the other person already sitting is too large for me to fit
without a "cutting" bar...
Before the bar, it was easier to find a seat.
They "welcome" tourists here, but then build new trains less accommodating,
for small Japanese people only.
Foreigners having to stand in jam-packed trains might boost taxi service.
In any event, I will leave during the Olympics!

People were pretty aggravated when they added a statue of a defiant little girl facing down "The Charging Bull" near Wall Street, it made headlines, and drew much controversy.
I don't know why art has to pander.
It seems creating art high in technique and appearance is never enough,
there has to be a gimmick, a way to "truly" catch attention...
I wonder if there was no "comfort women art" would there be another thing that would set someone off to this degree...
Stirring the pot brings more attention = more customers.

There is such a thing as a pool water cooler.
Why Japan has never considered it is a mystery.
In such a competition, in sweltering weather, to bring down pool water temps
it might become a necessity.

Sad news about this worker.
At least 57 people died across Japan from the heat between July 29 to Aug 4 and 18,347 were taken to hospital. Some 45 people have died in Tokyo alone since Aug 1, NHK said, many of them elderly living on their own.
I think there should be a fuel subsidy for low income/elderly people during the summer/winter.
I wonder how many don't turn on the ac due to making a choice of eating or paying the electric bill? Wasn't electricity invented to make life easier?
And yet to use it, in some cases, is an extravagance.

why would you suggest that women are able to avoid sexual assault? It's not possible - sexual assault happens even under circumstances that would be called "safe" - at home, with doors locked; out with close friends not even drinking alcohol; taking a walk in the park in the daytime; going into a public restroom; riding to work on a train; visiting with a friend or family member - these are all normal, every day activities that women and men both do, yet even then we are not completely safe!
It's possible to learn how to defend oneself.
Please, do not lecture women about "keeping out of situations" when we simply cannot know when, where, or who will assault us. We already take all kinds of precautions, and we do not need lectured on the topic. To do so is both condescending and presumptuous.
How many women have been assaulted at karaoke bars during drinking parties?
And who is "we"?
If you mean women, I am a woman, and I'm lecturing no one.
I am not victim-blaming or doubting the plight of any victim.
And putting consent into parenthesis, as if it is not a real thing? Just WOW.
Does a drunk person care about consent?
Does a rapist care about consent?
You are riding a high horse of feminism, with nothing but a victim banner.

Earlier reports said that the arsonist did send threatening emails to KyoAni.
I wonder why they were not addressed, evaluated, or reported to police.
Along with over-crowded working conditions, no sprinklers, locked exits,
narrow stairs, KyoAni is not blameless.
RIP innocent people.

Separating kids after sixth grade is the beginning of life-long pressure
with loss of support from friends kids once knew and trusted.
The pressure to get into a "good" school ruins everything.
As long as a school is accredited,
let kids go to their own districts, retain their friends, develop their friendships,
more inter-action between girls and boys, dances, school plays,
and fun activities, rather than obligatory hour-sucking clubs.
Parents, TALK with your kids every day, and know what's going on in their lives.
