@OssanAmerica, I bet is you go on the streets of America and asked who is George Takei is without a picture, 90% would not know him from Adam. With picture, that is the guy from Star Trek.

Why him, Isn't there more famous and smart Japanese Americans that could fill the bill? He was on Star Trek and made a commercial about a Japanese TV. Did I leave anything out? How about Michio Kaku?

Posted in: Why frustration lingers in Okinawa 50 years after its reversion to Japan See in context

Being here off and on for 40 years, I see so much wrong with this article.

Yubaru said it all! The news is just crazy, every night people people are fed just the littlest thing.

Maybe they should focus on the gambling problem here and the people behind that.

Many years ago there was a big thing about Red Clay runoff and the bases worked overtime to make sure there was no run-off from construction sites, but driving home you could see the whole bay full of red clay run-off from a heavy rain, the funny thing is, it was from the local farmers fields and nothing from the base.

The trouble here is people don't do research or thinking, If that is what the government and NHK says to do, we must do it. I think this must goo back to feudal times. We call it, not thinking outside the box or wearing blinders. but as they say, when in Rome, do as the Romans do.

Been here almost all my life off and on, I remember back in the 70's many of the older people that were here during the war was far more friendly to Americans here, even with some of the troubles of the young military people, because the remember what the Japanese military did during the war and how much America helped after the war, so much rebuilding was dome by the Americans and brought money to the island, that has faded away during the years, but still friendly to all most of the time, Lot of money rolls into this island from America and many Okinawans would not want to change that. and yes, many places that you can go and almost 0 Americans. and no that is not American Village, one of the biggest tourist attractions,

Many Health professionals fast all the time, many are on OMAD One Meal A Day, Look it up, I do it at 62 and feel great and workout at the gym and weights. Your body is not programed for three meals a day and this goes back thousands of years. After 16 hours of fasting you body starts to produce more growth hormone.

Look it up Dr Jason fung and fasting

As a boat captain, I can tell you, you just can't mess with high seas or any doubt, especially in cold water like that. The seas can change in a heartbeat.

People here say that Ukraine is a free country, I would do some research before you say that. For one thing, No freedom of the press, no opposition party, if you show opposition to the government, you will be locked up. Ask what happen to the the last opposition party!
