But they are just waiting for time to pass and hoping people will move on and forget about this.
Actually, the explanation is a lot less sinister than that; the school officials realized quite quickly that this player had committed a criminal assault on a player from another team. The advice to Miyagawa to remain silence was an attempt to shield him (and by extension the team) from legal consequences. Instead, this player admitted that he intentionally went out to assault the other player and cause him bodily harm (under alleged orders from the coach) and now criminal charges have been filed.
Miyagawa is a 20 year old adult, not a kid, and he assaulted someone. It doesn't matter that it happened on the field during a game. He admitted to the assault and he can and should be charged now.

Nothing in this statement tells me that the coach ordered the player to make an illegal hit. I’ve played contact sports my entire life and have heard plenty of coaches say they want us to hit the opposing teams’ players hard. You can easily make a big hit on someone legally. What’s his explanation for making two more illegal hits after the first one on the quarterback? He was kicked out of the game by the fifth play! I have a feeling that this player acted out this why as a means to get revenge on his coach after getting humiliated by being told he wasn’t good enough and that he lacked motivation.

Did you even read past the headline? In fact, the first sentence of the article clearly states this support is in the form of a tax deduction for child care. No payments at all from the state. Furthermore, who pays taxes? People with jobs! There's absolutely nothing about welfare payments.
I'm glad something is being done for single parents. Considering the number of children living in poverty in single parent homes every bit helps!

Entering the country of another is not a human right, even as a refugee
The argument being made was that foreigners don't have any rights in while they are in America, only citizens do. That is an preposterous thing to say. It's ridiculous actually.

Foreigners do not have a "right" in our country.
That's cute. So I guess human rights aren't a 'thing' in America? Nor has the US government signed any international conventions or treaties to recognize the rights of 'foreigners'?

FBI director James Comey reportedly asked the US justice department to reject the allegation Mr Obama ordered a wiretap during last year's election campaign. He is said to have asked for the correction because it falsely insinuates that the FBI broke the law.

To make an accusation of such magnitude without any evidence at all it reckless to say the least. This is exactly the kind of thing that will tear the country apart even further. When do the chants of "Lock him up!" start in reference to Obama? Goodbye America.

If you are a refugee or an asylum seeker running from a war torn country or seeking a better life for yourself or your family you cannot stroll into a country anytime you want,
You've just rolled refugees, asylum seekers and illegal immigrants all into one... thanks for proving my point that you are clueless about the distinction between these three groups of people.

Quick question for Texas, bass4 funk, et al. What's the difference between and asylum seeker, a refugee, an immigrant and someone who crosses the border illegally? I'm guessing by your ignorant posts that you haven't the slightest clue. Trudeau never said anything about being ok with people crossing the border illegally. The hypocrisy of some posters here boggles the mind. You hate illegal immigrants coming into your country but cheer it on when it's people crossing into other countries.

the Dem senator who said
Oh that rascally nameless dem senator! We all know that it matters so much that a nameless democratic senator met with a Russian because it was the democrats who were colluding with Russian operatives to help them win the election... oh wait! That was Trump and his team! That's why this matters you see. But you don't care about Russian interference in the election because they helped your guy win. Hypocrite.

So then we can cut a lot of the unnecessary entitlements that we don't need.
There's a lot that can be trimmed in many areas
I do hope he guts out all the unnecessary and costly provisions out, I do pray for that,
Why don't you actually name the 'entitlements' you want cut rather than just regurgitate talking points.
No money for education or healthcare but $54,000,000,000.00 for bombs?

He had a wife and four year old son. Too many heartless comments in this thread.
Haru-no-taki area is one of the few strictly off limit areas in Niseko. It was obviously a bad decision to be there... that being said, I still have a lot of sympathy for this man and his family. There's a lot of risk in almost any activity but the important thing is to try and manage that risk as much as possible. Stay safe out there folks.

I really hope the roll out for this goes smoothly. I honestly think this should be regulated and distributed like the LCBO or Beer Stores in Ontario. I'm for legalization but I don't want to see pot shops on every corner.

They don't matter???
Not to anyone who isn't a shareholder it doesn't matter. You said you were happy that Tiller heads a company that has gotten rid of 20,000 jobs in the last 15 years because, according to you, ' CEOs create jobs'. Something is weird about tha way of thinking.

But still one of THE biggest companies in the world, a company that pretty much every country does business with. Good on Trump.
Wrong again. Where do you come up with this stuff? Exxon is one of the biggest companies in the world in terms of REVENUE not employment. That only benefits it's shareholders.
3 ( +3 / -0 )
At the same time, these are the people that create the jobs and make things happen.
That's totally false. The largest employer in America is the government (department of defense). Moreover, over the last twenty five years, almost all of the private sector jobs have been created by businesses less than five years old. Companies more than five years old destroyed more jobs than they created in all but eight of those years.
Exxon has shed 20,000 jobs in the last 15 years and barely makes it into the top 100 firm in America listed by number of employees.

The TTP was designed to include language that intentionally excluded China and was a deliberate attempt from America to balance against China. Scrapping that agreement is seen as a big win for them. How exactly does America (who pushed hard for this agreement) stand to benefit more than China from its death?
China's trade advantage is certainly not limited to cheap labour costs. Their willingness to destroy the environment can't be matched in America (or most places). How exactly can America compete with them in the event of a trade war?
Wages in America aren't going to magically go up just by importing vastly more expensive products from abroad...
1 ( +2 / -1 )
Trump is in the pocket of the Chinese. His handlers in China gave him the script and he is following it to a T. Who benefits the most from scrapping the TPP? Who benefits the most from a trade war? It certainly isn't America. The masses in China are going to eat up the fact that there is a provocative president in the White House insulting them on twitter.
This is going to be fun to watch.

The speed at which Trump is 'pivoting' back to the GOP almost makes it feel like all the tension between him and people like Ryan was all a preplanned farce. I haven't heard the 'drain the swamp' rallying cry since we won.

they're not on suicide watch...you have to dismantle in incremental steps and at the same time come up with an alternative system
Donald Trumps declaration for his FIRST DAY in office.Ask Congress to immediately deliver a full repeal of Obamacare.
So between now and his first day he's going to come up with an alternative to the ACA and how it's going to be rolled out? Haven't the GOP literally had years and years to come up with an alternative and offered nothing at all other than 'trash Obamacare!'?

There is a big difference between a league manager and an international manager. League managers see their players daily and can mold them to the managers vision. International managers must understand their players strengths and get the best out of them as they are. I think what Japan football really needs right now is a Japanese manager. Someone who has managed and won in the J league would be a good start.

Are you intentionally being obtuse? Explanation is a synonym for excuse... so is justification for that matter.

excuse (n): a reason or explanation put forward to defend or justify a fault or offense.
Seriously Strangerland, the 'I was drunk' excuse pops up daily in the news here. Sensei is not saying he's being excused for his offense, he's saying the suspect is using drinking as an excuse for his behaviour.
