Has the leopard changed its spots? Doubtful. More likely she has her eyes on eventually taking her turn in revolving door LDP premiership.

I'm not Arab but I feel like calling the rocket Rashid is kind of like calling a rocket 'Tony' or 'Barbara' or as Kurisupisu said 'taro' for the Japanese. Is there more of a story behind the name? Perhaps its inventor or the meaning of the name itself?

They should also look into the very dodgy dealings that went on with the olympic stadium.
Zaha Hadid won the competition to design the stadium but her design was later scrapped as it was claimed it would cost too much. Hadid blamed the lack of a fair, competitive bidding process with construction companies for the inflated prices.
Need I mention that Shinzo Abe was also heavily involved in renegotiating the stadium contract that saw Hadid's design scrapped in favour of a Japanese architect with construction company in tow.

Hopefully all that was recorded was some unfiltered banter about the students. However there's a part of me that wonders if any of the comments were sexual in nature. Might explain the sudden absence of one of the students and teacher and why what was said seems to have been left very vague.

All four women in the other vehicles -- in their 20s, 70s, 80s and 100s --
100s? You don't see that written often in a news article. Hope she's okay. Also a worrying indicator of Japan's aging population.

While other factors cited as cause for concern had included the effects of the pathogen coming from abroad, syphilis cases had kept rising even when Japan had strict coronavirus pandemic rules on border entries. The results suggest, therefore, that infections are very likely to have spread due to domestic sexual activity.
When in doubt blame it on the foreigners first. Oh wait. . .

Liz Truss' entry in (UK) history will prove to be difficult to beat. Still, with such talented people such as uber-weirdo Jacob Rees-Mogg or the ghastly Mark Francois, are there still possibilities to launch and crash a tory government within days or even hours. - blue
If Boris comes back which there is some speculation he will then I reckon he could give Truss a good run for her money. What a farce the conservatives have created.

It's always interesting to see the LDP turn on its partners in corruption whenever they expose and threaten their dirty dealings. Much like the Moritomo Gakuen scandal.

This has the potential to backfire enormously for Kishida.
Firstly, exposing the exploitative and shady practices of the Moonies will only make the public question even more why so many in the government had connections with such an awful organisation in the first place.
Secondly, an unethical organisation whose modus operandi is extortion and manipulation is unlikely to go down without some sort of retaliation.

Fukami's firm, called "Commons 2,"
Wow, the corruption is so ubiquitous and absolute that they nonchalantly name their sham front companies 'commons' and 'commons 2'. Guess you don't have to try very hard when you know you have Dentsu's protection and the government's support.

The important thing for Japanese voters to realise is that it's not Kishida that's the problem. It's not his fault. Don't pin the blame on an individual. It's the entire party.
So turf out the entire of the corrupt LDP and not just its pig in lipstick PM of the hour if you want actual change.

From BBC news
Police investigating the assassination of Japan's ex-prime minister Shinzo Abe have said the suspect held a grudge against a "specific organisation".
Why won't police name the organisation? If I had to guess it sounds like it may be the infamous Nippon Kaigi which him and so many other Japanese politicians are a part of.

"Even if the government had exercised its regulatory authority and had TEPCO take countermeasures, it could not have been possible to prevent the tsunami from triggering the accident," the judge said
Not according to the 420 page, 900 hour report carried out by the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission.
"Although triggered by these cataclysmic events, the subsequent accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant cannot be regarded as a natural disaster," it said.
"It was a profoundly man-made disaster - that could and should have been foreseen and prevented."

The article never said where the women wounds were locate, but if the wounds were on her arms or hands a "Smart Lawyer" would turn that around and say "Yes my client was angry because of cheating" but her wounds are a direct result from "self defense.
In a lot of stabbing incidents people often cut their own hands because kitchen knives don't have crossguards.

Inflation, higher taxes, higher cost of goods, higher cost of living, 3 decades of stagnant wages and a government that throws money they don't have at companies that are already sitting on giant stockpiles of cash, the world's most rapidly aging population and the worlds highest national debt. (Currently around 230% of its GDP)
When will the Japanese people wake up and realize that the government that has monopolized their democracy is nothing but a consortium of self-serving old men who let Japan slip into the 3rd world?

Been a fan of Japanese cinema for a long time. From the golden oldies or Ozu, Mizoguchi and Kurosawa, through to the new wave directors like Oshima, Imamura, Ishii and the more recent auteurs like Miyazaki, Takashi and Koreeda. So many amazing Japanese films and directors worthy of recognition over the eras.
This film is frankly boring, unremarkable and prone to Japan's tendency towards overly shmaultzy drama. Not opposed to a slow burn film but it seems that the Murakami connection and Hollywood's current faux, self-congratulatory flavour of the week being Asians made it the go to feel good choice.
It's certainly no parasite.

The local education board says the rules "not only nurture a sense of unity among children but also ease the economic burden for families of buying clothes".
That's a load of bull. School uniforms and equipment is a massive industry unto itself.
Check out the price of the average "landsell" bags that are required by most elementary schools. One of those will set you back around $700-$1000.
It has nothing to do with economic burden. The government couldn't care less about the financial struggles of the average citizen.

At least it's better than stealing women's underwear or that one guy who was stealing children's socks for years.
I have a Daruma collection so I can relate to some degree. Coincidentally I also have one tanuki in my Daruma collection.
Not enough of a fetishist to actually go round stealing them though.
