Posted in: Heat pumps can't take the cold? Nordics debunk the myth See in context

Since we are in Japan, the UK is off topic, but using heat pumps for years.

Air conditioning, heating, and dehumidifying all in one. Timers etc. Great units. I have four.

My summer electric bill averaged ¥5500 a month.

Posted in: Letters from Japan: 'Finding & ending relationships' See in context

You will need to have excellent Japanese language skills, proof of income and the ability to show that you can support yourself and a spouse/family. In many cases, these apps or services require users to submit proof of address in Japan and annual income or any properties owned, since these are “selling points” that will attract potential partners.

This is blatantly false.

Never ever saw a janitor in a Japanese school. Perhaps they mean a maintenance worker on temporary stat.

Posted in: Scallops for sale on U.S. base See in context

I worked for the State Department at Zama for years. Food is much better on the outside than on the inside except for peanut butter and butter.

So much base food is frozen, processed, and in huge quantities that inevitably get freezer burned unless you mass consume like what you see in the photo, and those huge shopping carts.

Back in the day though, booze was much cheaper, and cigs too.

Was at Zama last week, and there really is no fresh seafood section. The veggies look old as do the fruits. Fruits and veggies are usually bought out on the economy because they are not good enough for the Japanese consumer.

But excellent to see America supporting the Japanese. Have seen scallops on sale in Yamato at various stores but the prices are still the same.

Posted in: Japan mulls economic package of around ¥17 tril See in context

give 70,000 yen each to low-income households exempt from paying income and resident taxes.

Excellent. Will pay for one night at my next adventure in two weeks for five days.

Is the ¥70,000 per person? I hope so.

Please expand on your comment, "Quick way to lose weight". I am sure others do not understand it either. Thanks

Posted in: Concerns mount for elderly as fewer Japanese under 40 donate blood See in context

My blood is A-

When I worked for the state department the bases here really wanted my blood.

But when I go to blood donation centers here on the economy they tell me sorry, we do not want your blood. So I question them about negative and positive Rh factors and the workers do not even know what it means. I am sure the doctors do.

Too bad they do not want my disease-free blood, but if I ever need an operation I will ask them to store my blood just for me.

Posted in: Outside of families, few relationships are as intense as those between sports teams and their fans. Do you agree and if so, why is that? See in context

I find it hard to understand why people go crazy over sports teams but refuse to support their teachers, social workers, and volunteers. Kind of sad actually.

Posted in: Chinese grabbing up Tokyo real estate See in context

The realty topic is about Japan. What is with all the comments on Canada, America, and HongKong, etc.?

Let the Chinese buy if they want to as the properties are not being sent to China. And if no Japanese are picking them up, I see nothing wrong with flooding their monies here.

Posted in: The mighty Mississippi, America's water highway, is dangerously low See in context

From the looks of the photo and the property right next to the river, I would not want to see it any higher.

It is a sediment issue from run off upstream more than a water shortage according to the geological survey.

Posted in: Japan survey shows 60% wrongly believe antibiotics can treat a cold See in context

I believe Moonraker-san has it correct.

It is a language issue, not a deep misunderstanding issue.

In general, I find the doctors here very fair. You would never walk into a doctor's appointment here to find that your doctor is gone for three weeks golfing in Hawaii and a substitute will take care of you.

Posted in: U.S. military bulk buys Japanese seafood to counter China ban See in context

Japanese fish in the eight food stores I pass on my daily walks rain or shine is fabulous. Super fresh and the choices are amazing. Due to fuel costs high, there have been some price increases, but follow the seasonal selections and all is fine.

I support nuclear energy and support Fukushima. Fabulous fruits as well.

China has released much more dirty water than all the combined releases Fukushima plans on doing.
