Prices fior nearly everything was exorbitant but again the musicians featured dont live in the poor house. Glad to see they can continue to play their music however.

Posted in: Osaka train driver apologizes to Japanese passengers for ‘having many foreigners’ on board See in context

Should be non discriminatory for all but sometimes behavior on trains by foreigners can be unruly. Sometime ago a few US military guys were basically lying on the one set of seats, laughing & joking around. Drunk I assumed.

Posted in: Leaked emails show tension inside Clinton inner circle See in context

These messages are tame compared to other WikilLeak disclosures that paint the C Foundation as ethically mismanaged, corruption of the DNC & the complicity of HRC. It is Oct & both sides realize it is do or die. BTW WikiLeaks does have very high rating on accuracy of the documents they reveal.

Posted in: Republicans dropping Trump must answer: Why now? See in context

Won't drop out. Media outlets (usually leaning 4'the Democrats) are not coming out that HRC was a decisive winner in 2nd debate. Audience included Bill Clinton. Debate left him squirming.

Keep track of it. Some of this clown activity is causing some trauma to the vulnerable: children.

G20 get together in China will be interesting. Notice the lack of feedback recently from Beijing since the tribunal ruling & the looming Sept meeting of the 20.

Posted in: Oliver Stone warns of Pokemon Go 'totalitarianism' See in context

Almost sounds like a fatwa coming from a kibishii or sharia practicing country (perhaps like a S Arabia). Or an old grandpa warning the young ones to stay away from an activity. Am glad he is fallible or could be sorely mistaken. Should stick to movie making where he has produced some nice film work.

Posted in: Melania Trump ignites GOP convention after gloom, turmoil See in context

Aside from the ideas, platforms etc of both parties, put a M Trump vs E Warren, from the standpoint of suave, you got a laugher.

Posted in: China rejects international tribunal ruling against its claims in South China Sea See in context

No big surprise here. Was assumed that claims by China was questionable by many in Asia & the US ( even though Obama administration hasn't been that vocal). Now corroborated by intl tribunal. Using the parlance of chess, next move is Beijing's.

Posted in: Japan ruling bloc election win threatens regional stability, says China's Xinhua See in context

One monumental difference is that there was an election, an exercise of voting. Can't say the same for the current history in Beijing. A world of difference & empowerment.

Posted in: Teacher who sat for anthem deserved pay cut: Japan court See in context

While some view it as an affirmation to past military history etc, the teacher could have simply gone by protocol during the ceremony & not attached any significant meaning to the flag & anthem. She made her choice obviously.

Posted in: Ghibli producer provokes backlash for comment regarding abilities of women to direct anime See in context

Evidence is that most of the studio's anime has been indeed directed by male directors. I would hope if a good potential female director was available, she wild be given a chance. By the same token, how many female directors have directed the successful Pixar or Disney anime hits? Probably a few to none. Just a conjecture.

Posted in: London's new Muslim mayor joins Holocaust memorial See in context

The Labour Party has just "adopted a critical line on Israel."? That's an understatement considering the recent resignations & verbiage coming forth from some of the Labour leaders. Good to see the new mayor make this appearance & hopefully he can represent a fair & just leadership for the ppl in London.

Posted in: Trump, on Staten Island, finally gets his NYC homecoming See in context

Should be an interesting result in the NY primary. Perhaps we'll see overwhelming support 4 Trumo regardless of status etc. He embodies NY values & outlook. Can't see other candidates making much of a dent.

If it becomes more of a conundrum as it seems to be heading, legal arbitration could be a viable option for a hesitating government.
