Posted in: 6 SDF members face punishment for unauthorized curry-eating See in context

I run my own business, and we go to hotel chains and motels to undertake work, we quite often get to know the managers, my point is that we get to see the amount of food that is thrown away just at breakfast time is unreal, ( which is given to us) at the end of service around 10am, all of the cooked food is disposed of, i would guess that this would be the same for Army, navy, airforce basses, so a few guys eating a curry, really? how petty, i would guess that most of this food would have been thrown away anyway.

Philosopher's Path in Kyoto follows a canal and is especially beautiful during the cherry blossom season. I am sure you could take some beautiful picture there. The one above is quite a poor picture.

Posted in: JR says it will take 2 weeks to remove bullet train derailed by quake See in context

@TTD, Meanwhile back in the dark ages here in the UK they cancel trains on a regular basis now due to a lack of drivers, hahaha! and dont forget our 1980,s super slow, sorry fast HS125, most modern cars engines are now euro 6 emission (dolfin friendly), yet they still keep using this pile of old diesel junk, the whole net work should be electric. The UK would still be filling in risk assessments etc in 6 weeks time we might get around to doing something, but wait, someone will demand an enquiry in to the disaster, just a few more weeks, two weeks to clear away the shinkansen train, repair the track, and get back to normality is dam good going I think.

It makes me wonder if other large corporations around the world have been watching this case unravel, as it unravels, people and companies look at this farce, and think, " do I want to invest in Japan if this is how they treat people"? would I want to be subject to this ridiculous treatment? how many companies have not invested or set up business in Japan, or moved operations else where? I bet this has cost Japan a lot of money.

a bracket was placed in the laundromat where people could leave unwanted clothes after washing so people in need could take what the wanted.

What a brilliant idea, and how compassionate, and thoughtful.

Most establishments would not want them to be in the place and would kick them out.

Posted in: Japanese court orders damages over forced sterilization for first time See in context


The Nuremberg Code and UN Convention on Human Rights specifically and clearly states that medical procedures on the human body can never be forced, coerced or even pressured.

Could this law be used to protect anti vaxers, who dont want covid vacines, in countries that want to force all there inhabitents to have the covid vaxines?, could the wording be stretched or include the word medical procedure

I watched the match between Japan and England, it was intresting to watch the skill and tactics, I certainly think that the Japanese ladies can hold there heads high they played very well, and they were gallent losers.

About time too. when they get around to this register, make sure its tied to there names, and national insurance number, and anything else that cant be changed, unlike just a name or family name alowing people to clip through the net, it will have to be a nation wide schema, rather than local.

"While many parents have welcomed the initiative, some experts are concerned that such a system may hinder the rehabilitation of those who have served their sentences"

ummm i dont think it will stop them being rehabilitated it will stop them from working directly with children. In some of the lesser offences, they might be allowed back into teaching, but they would be monitored all of the time.

And do they have a dead line to work some thing out, like the end of 2022? sooner the better.

It would also be nice if manga or anime mags stopped sexulalising school girls in/on the mags.

Posted in: Beijing's Olympics close, ending safe but odd global moment See in context

Ive been off work for a few weeks now, and I watched the games which ive never done before, I really enjoyed it, i watched most days to see if England might win a blinking medal, and they won a gold medal on the last day! ( silver the previous day) I do feel that this new article was a bit bias in the way it was written, I do feel sorry for the competitors that crashed out in spectacular manor, but that is part of competative sports, youl have winners and youl have losers, there was highs and there was lows, all followed by tiers of joy and sadness, I hope that it has inspired lots of adults and children to take up a sport after watching the games.

The japanese ladies curling team were beaten into second place by the English ladies curling team quite convincingly, but the Japanese ladies were full of good spirit and showed that they were gallant losers, so well done to them.

Give the kid the invoice for the cost of diverting, checking the plane, compensation to the crew and passengers for inconvenience, fuel used, airport costs, police time. if he cant pay, put him in a quarry breaking rocks until hes paid it all off, i think he will be there for some time.

Posted in: Alec Baldwin sued by family of cinematographer killed on set See in context

"And the film's armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed, who was named as a defendant in those lawsuits and blamed by some for the shooting, filed her own suit saying an ammunition supplier created dangerous conditions by including live ammunition in a box that was supposed to include only dummy rounds."

I would like to hear his opinion why he didnt say no, this is not safe, its not happening, and why he didnt refuse to load live rounds,

“I didn’t pull the trigger,” Baldwin said. “I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them. Never.”

Has this gun been tested in a lab for a fault in its mechanism ?

Baldwin said he does not believe he will be criminally charged in the shooting.

"he didnt want any training,"

its an industry standard that the armour should show the operator/actor what to do and check the gun for its safety, he didnt do this, the actor pointed a loaded gun at someone with live ammo, this is something you should never ever do. the armour knowingly had live rounds on the set, but he failed in insisting that no live rounds should be used, he didnt insist on using blanks, and he didnt insist on instructing the actor on how to handle a live gun, yet he still let an inexperianced person point a live gun at someone, this is shear madness, these two in my opinion are totaly responsible for there actions, they failed and are trying to pass the blaim, I am sorry but I think the armour and Mr baldwin are responsible 100%, it has to be jail time for them both.

I am sure there are going to be scenario where there has been an altercation, but when reporting it to the police or someone, it can be one persons word against another persons word, in these cases it can make the differance.

The other thing is there any data protection involved here? the last thing we need is staff/employees uploading images of the altercation onto YouTube or tick Tok just to earn a few more bucks.

Posted in: Tokyo changes age limit for kids going into opposite sex’s bath at hot springs and sento See in context

I think that most people in most parts of the world who use swimming baths have the same sort of idea, that 6-7 year olds can get then self changed and washed, so a 6-7 year old bor or girl is quite capable of going into the retrospective changing room, i dont think that children younger than that should be unaccompanied for several reasons, one would be the ability to get changed, washed, dried. i think 6-7 is a nice cut off age, as for should it be law? may be a "strong recommendation" or guideline this gives the system a bit of flexibility, may be a child has a learning difficulty, or is disabled.

Posted in: Police search house of man linked to deadly Osaka fire See in context

"Authorities are investigating how the smoke filled the floor so quickly and the victims became trapped. There was no prior violation of fire prevention codes at the building, officials said"

I would like to see these fire codes, there is something trasticly wrong with them, there seems to be a dire lack of fire exits, adiquate means of exiting patients, fire exits, fire alarms/smoke detectors. what are the regulations on conbustable material as part of the decor of the building? most places around the world, peices material or furniture have to tested for being fire retardant, the other thing that caught my attention, was that a bottle of oil/fluid was knocked over, and thats how the fire started, it would seem that there must have been a naked flame near by, did they have one of those kerosene heaters near by? if so these heaters need to be modified or outlawed.

Do these building by law have to have a sprinkler system installed? the article does not mention that they were in opporation?

The tragic loss of life could have been reduced or even prevented, if adequate measures were put in place.

Posted in: Miss Universe 2021 Japan entry slammed for wearing 'dead person’s kimono' See in context

Is that a real Japanese kimono? no

is it closely related to a kimono? no

Getting the left over the right rather than right over left, I am sort of 50/50 on this one, but they should hae got it right out of respect.

Tattoo, its a bit of make up on her chest and it will come off, its not real. get a life.

The chrysanthemum emblem is exclusive for the Emperor; true, but its not even an obi its sort of ok, but I can see why it might be offensive to some sensative snowflake.

No one has picked up on the Maneki Neko in her hands,

So, the whole out fit is a car crash, its a mess, the whole outfit is a badly deisigned, with little or no thought, has the designer done this to have a shock effect?
