Posted in: Princess Mako to get engaged See in context

Both are 25. Could spell trouble 20 years down the line. She might outgrow him or he might outgrow her. Then again this might be fate calling. Whatever, its good to see young people in love. Long live. Long love.

Posted in: Hollywood's Walk of Fame, the biggest star of all See in context

This is a total scam. Google it. The stars are ordered by the stars or their studios two years in advance to coincide with a new movie or book or CD and the stars are paid for in advance at $30k per star. It is a PR scam. It is not an award or an honor. Google this info to see the truth. Paid for PR, people. Great marketing gimmick. Tax write off for studios, we the public pay for this scam via higher ticket prices. And even the celebrities go along with this charade in their "acceptance" speeches on video. This scam must stop.

Posted in: Gov't names and shames 'black' companies violating labor laws See in context

Was the word "black" used in English news since that gives a possible silly but possible racist tone to the concept? What was word used in nihongo? Of we do say a business is in the red or in the black. True. So just curious what nihongo term was in news in j newspapers. PC or not, just curious. Paint it black. Blackout. Blacklisted.

Posted in: Japan-led ADB sees no need to compete with China's AIIB See in context

Two people I used to work with at expat newspapers in Tokyo and Taipei now work in the PR offices of the ADB in Manila, Andrew Perrin from Australia and Geoffrey Dwyer from the UK.

Taiwan has been invited by China to join the AIDB but under the fake name of "Chinese Taipei Province of China" but Taiwan says it will only join under the name of Taiwan (ROC). China refuses to accept that name for Taiwan and therefore Taiwan is not going to dine with the Communists of the PRC.

I ate whale meat in Alaska with an Inuit family, and in Tokyo and enjoyed the taste. Ate dolphin stew in Taiwan and delicious. However, never again.

Posted in: JR East luxury sleeper train makes debut See in context

This reminds of the train in the Korean movie "Snowpiercer" with the rich in the front cars and the proles in the rear cars fighting to oust their oppressors.

Posted in: Japanese businessman shot dead in Philippines See in context

This was a crime syndicate member from Japan killed by a rival gang in Manila over a deal gone bad. A convoy of four vans? He was not your ordinary " Japanese businessman." Welcome to the underworld. Read the article again.

Sadly, the Hiroshima event was all PR, and well done at that. Moving speeches, emotional hugs. But will anything change?

Posted in: Japan's porn industry apologises over coercion claims See in context

Its not really a porn industry. The correct euphemism in English websites has been "ejaculation industry." Its not and never has been about "watching" porn but rather ejaculating while watching the bids. Call it what it is!

Murder suicide is often code. The two men could have had a long relationship as a couple. Rest in peace.

Posted in: TED Talks aim for wider global reach See in context

TED talks used to be novel and exciting, as in expect the unexpected. But now everybody and their cousin who wants to build their personal brand is told they should ask their local TED chapter for a shot at it. Result: quality went down, the unexpected got squished by the monetizing zeal. BOO.
