Posted in: Dual nationals feel cast adrift in Japan See in context

Not only is this law antiquated, the reality I think is that they just don't know what to do or how to go about such complex judicial transaction thus offer only black or white resolution "keep it or lose it" or "with us or against us" mentality.

Is it really necessary? Don't think so if it wasn't since 1952.

Is SEC bought out by Super Pacs too? Musk has target on his back for going against dirty energy companies and US auto industry that go hand in hand.

Scary if and when robots start monitoring every answer, action of each child. George Orwell's "Big Brother" has truly arrived.

Posted in: Honey the lonely dolphin, abandoned in aquarium, sparks public outcry See in context

Agree that Japanese government, going forward should have strict regulations in place for any company/municipalities wanting to open zoo and/or aquarium. They need treat them just like financial institutions. Entities must allocate certain amount of capital/reserve set aside to care for these animals apart from annual operating expenses. In other words, unless they pass basic "financial stress test", these entities should not be granted any license or certification to operate zoos/aquarium. This stress test must be passed every year if not every other year in order for them to keep operating. If they fail, entities must hand over animals to sanctuaries using their own reserve set aside. This will act as deterrent to any entities wishing to open zoo/aquarium to not take it's financial and moral obligation to living creatures lightly.

Please invest in tech infrastructure to manage minimum baseline of 1.28 million workers. Pencil, paper and hanko stamping ain't going to cut it anymore.

Sounds great. The "holding back" mentality needs to change.

Posted in: Trump worries that Mueller interview could be a 'perjury trap' See in context

Interesting how Congress hasn't come to Trump's aid collectively on this matter. Perhaps this is the only card they have to keep Trump in control regarding the budget for building the wall, China tariff etc. . . . If Republicans loose Congress(very unlikely) or Senate to Democrats at midterm election, then they might not care what happens to Trump anymore. Mueller investigation could proceed with full force.

Posted in: High-tech Tokyo tops list of world's most innovative cities See in context

Interesting to see how long Tokyo can maintain this accolade. It's almost a social experiment as country ages and young people disappear. Is innovation in high tech possible without creative minds mostly associated with youth/young people(as millennials in US)?

Who the hell is Henry Golding? Is he a famous actor from Malaysia or some Hollywood influenced nobody? Highly doubt they couldn't find a real Asian already famous leading male actor.

Posted in: Madonna gets no respect for Aretha Franklin VMA tribute See in context

Exactly why I don't watch these awards anymore. The so called artists (should call themselves celebrities trained by karaoke) and those that create these shows are all garbage.

Posted in: Facebook in talks with banks to expand customer service See in context

So now they want to collect our financial info to sell it to political parties? Any bank that collaborates with Facebook should see mass customer exodus.

Posted in: Outcry as Japanese winemaking couple ordered to leave France See in context

So they're doing better than others but have to leave? Doesn't make sense. Were the officials bribed? Almost sounds like someone or some company wants to take over their land and grapes due to its high demand.

Guess theme of oppression, evil government, revolt and revolution of any kind must be avoided at all costs. Must be hard to come up with good plot with so much censorship.

At the end it's Harley's employees that will suffer the most by being laid off. Most companies won't have the money nor time on their hands to wait for outcome of tariff war.

Have they received any money from the $8.8 million paid in 2015? Can't oppose the 2015 deal while trying to get paid from the settlement too.

He should get the death penalty. Sends a good message to any other monsters that prey on children and think they can get away with it.
