Posted in: Japan calls for early solution to U.S.-China trade war See in context

The Global Times, a state-owned Chinese tabloid, said in an editorial on Monday: "We are looking forward to a more beautiful counterattack and will keep increasing the pain felt by the US."

This is shaping up to be a heavyweight title fight.But a beautifully crafted reply.

Posted in: London mayor calls for second referendum on Brexit See in context

Serrano: I applaud you for being the only one of the four giving a thumbs down, to actually try explaining your point. But the fact of the matter is that Britain is majority white and if they vote in a bloc,like they did,there's nothing that the minority can do,close as it may be. Even my hometown in England voted leave and that was like... really?

Posted in: London mayor calls for second referendum on Brexit See in context

Basically it was the Caucasians who voted for the exit.Their hope is to restrict people of color coming into the country and being gullible to the lies of the leavers,with their open spewing of negativity. No bailout thru a 2nd ref. is needed. Let their not so closet racist instincts reap what they sowed.Consequences and repercussions need to be dealt.

Posted in: Gunman kills 5, then himself in southern California rampage See in context

I dunno how people up on here can still go on about guns after a shooting. It's with such a regularity nowadays that until there's meaningful gun control then this will continue as is.You got more chance of Putin acknowledging the election's interference than gun reform,because Americans just love guns and violence.

Apple has run out of steam and creative ideas since Jobs kicked the bucket. A bigger and more expensive phone is just what's needed... by the greedy company.

Posted in: Osaka charms Japan with her manners — and broken Japanese See in context

, the Williams fit needs to be addressed.

Lol of the day. Didn't you read here yesterday? She's Japanese by virtue of being born in Japan,but for many Japanese,they won't consider her a full-blooded one and I for one don't really feel she is true blue Japanese.But that's ok and good luck in her future endeavors like at next week's Pan Pacific where she'll be feted like nobody's business as a Japanese.Lol.

Though she has the giggling and "cutesy" Japanese behavior down pat like a native tho.

Russia's in the business of taking land(Crimea) than returning.Anyway Russia's still smarting from selling Alaska to the U.S.Japan'll never get back barring a 1905 flashback.

Posted in: Naomi Osaka wins U.S. Open after Serena Williams penalized a game See in context

 I’ve completely utterly lost respect for Serena. Well done Naomi!!

Serena wasn't happy about the penalties she was assessed and I think the ump should have given her a warning before taking away the game. Men have been much worse with F- bombs and threatening behavior and not lost games over it.At the presentation ceremony she prevented the angry crowd from overshadowing things by telling them to stop booing and they did and swerved nicely when questioned about how she felt. In the press conference she explained herself and was not happy about being accused of cheating and had every right to defend her integrity.

People coming on here to bash Serena just didn't like her in the first place,just bandwagoning Naomi being Japanese and venting rubbish.Stop it.

Posted in: Kansai airport resumes domestic flights after typhoon See in context

Why not use the airports of Kobe and Itami for domestic and KIX for international flights? Got students fretting over their overseas sojourns next week but can't get info as to what's happening.Clearly the wrong decision in the prioritizing of domestic over international travel was a mistake.

Unlike China, Japan doesn't have the clout to push back like it once had. This is the one issue where if China gives it to the U.S. I wouldn't shed a tear. Need to learn the hard way for electing the vainglorious dropkick.

Posted in: May stands firm on her Brexit plan; says no to 2nd referendum See in context

Hell no to a 2nd vote.By now, I'm sure many Americans might have buyer's remorse about their voting for trump.But in a democracy,though tainted as it is,the Leavers got what they wanted in a fair vote.Yeah,they lied,didn't have all the facts, griping does not change what happened.People went and voted leave,albeit for the wrong reasons,that much is clear.

Look forward to the consequences of this misguided action.As my gran used to say," If you can't hear...feel."

And cracapaphat - you can buy similar phone for even less on Aliexpress!

I'm not broke.Just happy to get something that was so much cheaper than the Iphone.Got mine on Gearbest which included a 2000 yen expedied charge,to receive within 3 days. I want the Mi A2 next up for the ol' lady.

I traded in my Iphone earlier this year for an Android Mi A1 for 23,000 yen and lovin' it. Iphones are just simply too overpriced.

Stopped going 15 years ago and never looked back.Sure a huge screen is nice.But if I wanna take a leak,refill my drink or whatever,being able to pick up where i left off and at home can't be beat.

Though it sounds positive being a centrist with the divisions in the party,it's going to take some hard yakka to pull the party into line. Pretty bishy tis Oz politics.

When you lie like trump does,so easily and brazenly,there's no trap needed to be set.He couldn't remember the truth even if he wanted to.He's as much in denial as his supporters are in their warped defense of him.

It's all good.Women are combating the heat by covering up themselves and using an umbrella whilst walking. On top of that,a good few men are using too.Particularly old men.What are they covering up for? I think summer is wasted in Japan,particularly with women.
