Posted in: Trump's ex-lawyer Cohen says in book president disparaged Black leaders, including Nelson Mandela See in context

Weren't Cohen's lies to congress to protect Trump? And now Trump's rats are saying that makes him not credible? Funny stuff.

Considering all the crazy stuff Trump has said in front of the camera, it's probably safe to say he has said stuff even more crazy privately. Trump has no principles according to his own sister. It seems believable that he said those things.

Campaigning starts Tuesday, with PM selected on the following Monday. Love it! I wish the US would do something more like that. The US's 2-3 years of campaigning is ridiculous.

Posted in: Trump calls on Fox News to fire reporter after she confirmed his alleged remarks on Marines killed in action See in context

To me, the tantrum the moron in chief is throwing is proof that the allegations are true.

And it's pretty easy for me to tell when he is lying lately, besides just when his lips are moving. When he calmly tries to explain something away, or calmly claims no knowledge of something, or says "many people have said...", or "many people agree with me..." (talk about anonymous sources!) - he is lying.

Vice President Mike Pence said in an interview Friday that the Republican National Convention next week will focus on what Trump has accomplished, including on the economy and with his coronavirus response.

Don't blink or you'll miss it. It's going to be a very short convention.

“When I read about it, I didn’t like it. I said this is for government, this isn’t for private people. And it sounded to me like showboating,” he told reporters at the White House, adding that he felt “very badly" about the situation.

The Environment Ministry says it is very rare in Japan for more than 200 cats to be retrieved from one location.

Makes me wonder how many times 100-199 cats are retrieved from one location. It makes it sound like it's pretty often...

Posted in: Trump calls on Americans to cease hoarding food, supplies See in context

Trump: I'm not worried, it's not a big deal, the US will recover quickly, I like the numbers where they are, blah blah blah.

He's an imbecile incapable of thinking of anyone but himself.

Now suddenly he decides to get tested and announces a state of emergency? After what he has been saying up to this point I seriously doubt he made that decision on his own. His staff and medical advisers probably had to drag him kicking and screaming to do it.

Posted in: Avoid crowds and non-essential gatherings, health minister urges See in context

At least one company is taking countermeasures:

Yahoo Japan Corp said Friday it is calling on all employees to avoid commuting during rush hours and is banning meetings of more than 100 people in principle, in addition to encouraging personnel to wear face masks and promoting the use of teleconferences.

For now, core working time will be shortened by two hours from noon to 3 p.m. for the 6,500 employees at Yahoo to facilitate commuting during later hours.

To me an accident is something that happens by chance. This was no accident - it was clearly preventable and caused by the driver. Sad all around. I hope there are some potentially stupid people out there who learn from it.

In the U.S., the government is seeking to take over management of production and distribution of replacement inflators in an effort to speed the process and prioritize where inflators are sent.

While I understand the many valid points being made, I think many are missing the point. I don't think she's expecting that all women work the same type of schedule that she does. But it will be hugely beneficial if she can help create an environment where Japanese women have more opportunity to work than they current have.

Posted in: Tochigi Prefecture seeking to create new national holiday: Mountain Day See in context

You gotta love how Japan does so many things without really doing anything. In the same vein as passing a law without any penalty for breaking the law, they now propose a new holiday on a Sunday which is already a day off. LOL! Another case of politicians afraid to vote for something that actually makes a difference...

Posted in: Why it’s so hard to have your family come to Japan See in context

Huh? What a strange article. The way the author tries to deduce that cost is the issue doesn't make any sense.

First the author says, "Many students from all over the world at my school invited their friends and family to come see Japan and they came in droves."

Then he has a difficult time inviting someone to Japan from his own family, and decides it's because of cost despite the fact that others came to Japan in droves.

So why isn't cost an issue for other international students and their friends/family? They are all rich while the author isn't? Or exchange rates with other countries are that much better than the author's home country? The author fails to make any comparisons.

My idea, which has little to do with cost: Most international students in Japan are from nearby Asian countries. The flight is much shorter to Japan than from Western countries for their friends/family. The culture is also much closer. So a trip to Japan from Asian countries is not as big of an undertaking as it is from Western countries (for most people).

Just my 2 yen...

Obama is also half white. I don't understand why half black = black. He could just as easily be called white, right? I don't get it.

Hiniku - you got it VERY wrong. You can't compare full HD to 4K when the screens are different sizes. You can only compare same screen sizes. Not a gimmick at all. 4K = four times full HD is correct.

Posted in: Fukuoka mayor imposes 1-month alcohol ban for public servants See in context

Good for the mayor - he's just trying to make a point, knowing that it's mostly unenforceable. But obviously drinking is a huge problem in Japan. Holding drunks accountable including firing is a better idea as some posters have said. For the posters who think it's a total ban - it's not. The public servants are still free to drink to their hearts content at home.
