Ha ha, Fukuwa at Nagoya Univ played down the problem! Says that falsification of the data was not a major issue! Same could be said of the nukes in Fukushima before 3/11 right? Everyone played down the issue. If the data was falsified, what else was falsified? What about the testing methodology, what about the actual installation? It goes on and on, it's not just about the data, and if investigators stop there, then they should also be held responsible for not going to the heart of the matter. So is this going to delay the completion of the Olympics venues? Made in Japan....right. Those days are gone.

Agree with Jeff Huffman. Katz have always been used throughout history to control rats. It would be a good way to have a new appreciation for our feline friends instead of only the artificial, faddish obsession with cats.

Another concern that I have is that cats are the trend in Japan now, so what happens after the fad? Fads die fast in Japan.

Is she focusing on "productivity" or on their sexual preference? Either way her reasoning doesn't hold water. First of all, she has only one child so she's also not as productive as she should be. Also, would she hold the same view if her only child comes out and says that they are other than "straight?" C'mon lady, your idiocy is so apparent!

The best advertisement would be their actions for compensating the victims. What are they going to show anyways, bright city lights and a vibrant metropolitan scene? Utility cost to the consumers are going to pay for this marketing blitz right?

Tokyo Olympics is going to be a real challenge for Japan's health care and emergency response system. Have no idea why they chose July/August to host the games.

LDP and nukes are a recipe for disaster, and Fukushima is a prime example. Too many important questions remain unanswered to be going down this road prematurely.

And how many of those in the ACC voted for Trump thinking that he would be good for their business? It has always been and always will be only about and for Trump and no one else. If you don't like that, then go do something about it this November.

To get to the top, the best teams play harder, overcome adversity and grow stronger with every game. The final 16 is no joke and only the teams that are growing stronger and gaining more confidence in their play will survive. Japan has neither the confidence nor the strength to survive in the knock out stage. They sorely needed the win over Poland to prove to themselves that they belong in the 16. Nishino did a disservice to his players AND the fans by playing the odds instead of playing football. What's he going to do now, play the odds against Belgium? Good luck with that.

Always play to win, don't depend on anyone else, it's very simple. Japan lost in more ways than one.

I'm sure N. Korea has their beef with Japan just as all of the other Asian nations do, but if you just replace the countries N. Korea with China in the state agency piece and one can see who is really behind the statements.

I fear that Messi might end up like Ichiro, one of the best in their game, but never a world champ. The fate of stars in team sports.

Someone please get this clown out of office. The only reason why we don't hear the asinine word, Abenomics anymore is because it's a failure, I don't know why the media isn't pressing him about this. Abenomics indeed, the arrogance of putting your name on an economic policy... time to eat crow and own it Abe!

Increasing the consumption tax hurts the aging population who literally built this country out of the ashes of the war. They are living on fixed income and at the minimum, food, and medicine shouldn't be taxed. The young, who need to support this society will be stuck at entry level salaries or minimum wage will not be able to pay for "big ticket" items because day to day expenses will not allow them to even contemplate making such purchases. How about reducing the pay, severence and perks of the elected politicians and also reducing their numbers for starters? These clowns are so out of touch with the average struggling household...

I'm sure Cohen is sweating bullets now. Manafort flip, Cohen Flip. Better than watching gymnastics at the Olympics Donnie boy!

For a country that has an aging population that is sorely dependent on the young, Japan is severely negligent in taking care of its future. Abuse, neglect, bullying, suicide, dysfunctional and obsolete educational system that sends adolescents into the work force if they can't get into a high school, social safety nets that are incompetent, and most of all, a government that is completely out of touch with society's needs as demonstrated by what the LDP will now propose to do. The list goes on ad nauseam bigly.

This is an issue between Kim and Abe. All member nations of the six party talks have already met with Kim except Abe. Abe should have met with Kim a long time ago, but now he's watching from the sidelines betting on Trump. Trump could bring up the subject, but will not let it be a show stopper. If Kim rejects discussing this, Abe will be left out in the rain holding the umbrella for both Kim and Trump! What a joke.

Bolton and Pence just rained on Donny's Nobel parade. Disjointed and dysfunctional WH staff and incoherent policy, what can you expect?

One question that I haven't seen in all this is why didn't the ref eject 91 immediately after the hit? From what I've gathered this guy had three personal fouls and then was ejected. That hit was not within the bounds of the game and should be seen as criminal assault. Whatever the Japanese equivalent of the NCAA is they should retrain the refs to immediately eject players that engage in this type of play. Nichi Dai's coach also needs to be relieved of his post within the university and not just his position as head coach. Criminal culpability. Just one name these people need to remember. Darryl Stingley.

Saw the video, no mention of the nukes. I'm also left wondering how much money and effort could have been spent in countermeasures if all the attention weren't for the Olympics.
-1 ( +2 / -3 )
Hate to rain on everyone's parade but we've got nuke plants, and earthquakes galore. Read the story that the ice wall at Fukushima isn't working? I can see a lot of Fukushima clean up news getting swept under the rug to keep bad news from reaching the world to avoid a Zika type scare. Good luck Tokyo, you're going to need it.

Who knew, when did they know, and what did they do about it? If a letter as blatant as this is not treated seriously, how in the heck do the powers that be think that they can deal with international terror? Positioning ERT at the Sumida river fire works? Intel and acting on the intel...not after the fact which is so often the case in Japan.
