Posted in: Sydney to kick off global New Year parties with dazzling spectacle See in context

Is this wise with the current worst ever heatwave and fire bans?

When I read this I did a double take. Then I remembered it's summer in Australia. You guys must have the best new year's parties.

You shouldn't have to clear snow off your roof. Roofs are slopped so that rain and snow run off naturally. I lived in the northeast US and have never had to clear snow off my roof.

Why didn't he just tell them his room number? That's what I would have done and this would not have happened despite me being a minority. Some people just feel entitled and think everything is about them.

Sounds like more of an accident than a crime. JT should have a section for accidents.

If you born in japan... u're japanese, if u born in jamaica... u're jamaican... she wasn't born in Japan. Period.

You really should think about the stuff you post. Anyone who looked at that for more than a second would know that's obviously false. Foreigners born in Japan have never been accepted as Japanese.

Posted in: U.S. government partially shuts down in fight over Trump's border wall See in context

According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll in late November, only 31 percent of those surveyed said improved border security should be one of the top three priorities for Congress.

Are these the same polls that said Trump stood no chance of winning the election? Don't trust polls. They can be easily manipulated to get the result you want. We have no idea where the poll was done and what questions were asked.

Posted in: The Carlos Ghosn case: What next? See in context

Prosecutors are public employees while lawyers are civilians. The lawyers work for money not necessarily for human rights. It is known that many suspects got free by hiring lawyers who outsmart prosecutors not only in Japan but in U.S. as well.

It is better to let the guilty go free than to punish the innocent. Once Japan figures this out, it will truly become a 1st world country.

Posted in: 'Maple Smoked Bacon' Cup Noodle mixes Japanese noodles with 'American' indulgence See in context

As a British person, I admit, I foolishly assumed maple smoked bacon was Canadian in nature (due to the presence of the word “maple”). Upon asking some Americans and Canadians, neither party was willing to stake sole claim on it, though people from both countries conceded that flavoring bacon with anything at all “seemed like a very American thing to do”.

@runner3 Americans did not take credit, we were given credit which we were more than willing to share with our neighbors up north.

Trump is turning out to be the best President of my life time. Not getting involved in conflicts the world over? What a novel idea. Now we can focus on fixing infrastructure and countering China. Thanks Trump!

I feel like with the current political climate, this was the wrong time to unveil this character. It's a shame because i like Miles and any other time it would have great to have a movie based on him.

There is something odd about getting arrested for abusing an app. It's not like he hacked a company server. This program clearly has holes and it should be on the company to fix that. Invalidate his points and place limits so this can't be done again.

Posted in: U.S., China reach 90-day ceasefire on tariffs in trade dispute See in context

Winning. This is a cease fire, not a win. But trump said winning trade wars is easy - yet he’s zero for three right now.

You still haven't answered my question. What is winning a trade war if not negotiating a better deal? It's certainly not to destroy the other economy as that would hurt both sides. When the other side is willing to make concessions, you have won. This is of course assuming China will follow through. Otherwise its just stalling.

Posted in: U.S., China reach 90-day ceasefire on tariffs in trade dispute See in context

Why is the US signing a cease-fire? I thought winning trade wars was easy?

What do you think the goal of a trade war is? It's not destroy your opponents economy. It's to reach a deal that is beneficial to your side. China just cried Uncle. Go Trump.
