Why is that ominous face in background? Why AP uses a distorted, unrelated image here? This is not from Taiwan’s press event of such news.

Mr or Ms kurisupisu,

We love our fresh markets in Taiwan but many people have container gardens for herbs on balconies, too! Alas, the fruits and veggies there do grow smaller. It seems nature knows her confines : )

Posted in: Intruders steal ¥30 mil from elderly man’s safe at home See in context

The sanctity and security of Japanese homes are becoming treacherous places for elderly and children. It is a relief to learn this is not another story of intrafamily troubles.  Pray they catch these thugs before they do more harm.

There is no “I” in beach.

Most Asian family regard outdoors as another opportunity for shared communal experience.

Only the selfish want to make nature an experience just for self alone.

Much left to be learned from opening mind to beauty of other cultures if one can let go of thinking and speaking only of self all of the time.

Posted in: Which do you think make better pets: cats or dogs? See in context

Dogs or cats bring joy to our shared lives. Not enslavement of a species but mutual respect and symbiotic coexisting. Do not understand the need of negative commentators here like Mr. WilliamBjornson and Mr. TrevorPeace that want to disparage any joy in life from others.

Such critical views of pets, other peoples’ individual art and fashion tastes and regarding all humanity as cold-hearted in general may leave them quite lonely in the end.

Good luck finding another source of almost unconditional love. To many of us here, pets are dear friends.

Tried these in Taiwan. Simple food like noodles slide right off before getting to your mouth and the battery pods hard edges are uncomfortable. Pass.

Mr or Ms GreatBritain48

the entire story says “nurse”, not he or she, not him or her.

Both men and women can be nurses.

Sorry for the fatal illness that befell your friend in Japan but do not understand how you want to turn their story into pity for your experience.

Medical staff here are under constant stress from many directions. Why do last 2 commenters from outside Japan want implicate the medical professionals in Japan as possible abusers?

Don’t project feelings. This nurse in this story is a victim of a serious crime here, not you.

Posted in: It’s effective to install high-performance cameras at self-checkout systems to monitor shoppers’ eye and hand movements. It’s also essential to assign employees to appropriate areas to help deter crime. See in context

Uniqlo/GU and Eslite are perfecting the self checkout systems but desperate and hungry people aren’t after clothes or books.

Supermarkets need staff to handle the meat, fish, produce and dairy as well as show the goodwill and loyalty of their employers toward paying customers.

We must stop with all these greedy corporations pushing for AI and machines to monitor and control our lives and reset our societies back to real human interactions again.

He is elder but doing his best. Did Mr. Biden “fell on his knee” or “took a knee” in respect to comfort and hug Megumi’s mother?

Megumi's mother Sakie Yokota, 86, said Biden fell on a knee to hug her as she was seated.

Thank you Mr Biden to promise you will protect the People of Taiwan with your military response if needed.

Posted in: Cormorant fishing See in context

People all across the world have long worked with nature. Peoples of India happily sang to the birds and danced on one side of a river. The birds’ swim and flight would cause a great stir to the water as they dashed to the other side where many fish threw themselves on the land. Drummers with cymbals and gongs on the other side then scattered the birds, leaving much of the larger fish too big to swallow on the shore and shallows where women and children recovered them.

He was probably lurkin nearby. Smart girl watching from outside but hadn’t guess he’d already made a extra key and would sneak in while she’s out.

And J-guy’s no more offensive online than texting about J-cops, J pop, K pop, my Jgf, my Jbf or him calling me an egirl. Like Karens, some Kens and Gregs are way too sensitive about the wrong things and try to make a big deal over nothing.

This girl doesn’t need the grief and needs to move out before he gets out.

Also wishing for everyone’s peace from neighbors across the sea to across the world!
