Posted in: Japan aims to keep elderly driving with compact EV subsidies See in context

This makes no sense! No matter the size of a vehicle it is still a weapon when you smash the gas instead of the brake. This is NOT a solution. How incompetant is the Japanese Gov't when it comes to this? If yiu can barely walk or walk with assistance you are unfit to drive!

So Let me ask you this? Are things perfect for women in the workplace in Japan?

Posted in: Japan considers bringing part-timers into employee pension system See in context

@1glenn.Another part of Social Security is the disability side of it. This is one of the good things about social security. If you become disabled prior to age 65, you can draw SSDI. I am in the middle of that mess right now.

Posted in: Japan considers bringing part-timers into employee pension system See in context

The Gov't wants to take a little under 10% in taxes, and then take another ¥16,000 as well from me working part time? The Gov't wants part timers to pay into the pension scam now, not because we will get more LATER, but because the Gov't is running out of pension money NOW for the aging population. I don't want to pay into this scam. I will just collect my Military disability and my US social security pension. My pay I get from America is way more than what I will ever get from the Gov't in Japan.

I used to be in the US Military. I am well prepared to treat not only my family, myself, but my neighborhood. A disaster can strike at a moments notice! I will be ready, will you?

If Abe says "We'll do everything possible to restore your lives," he should have handed a stack of ¥ right there, and said, this is to rebuild your home. Actions speak louder than words.

One thing that humanity needs to learn is that anything and everything that is said is completely open to ones personal interpretation.

Posted in: About 100 Lawson stores will not open on New Year’s Day See in context

@YubaRu

Where I come from food is cheaper, and someone puts the groceries in the bag. Why would prices be higher? It wouldn't hurt these lazy CEO's to take a paycut and pay the workers better. The gov't hides behind the "The population is aging", when really the problem is people here are expected to work like dogs for very little pay, treated like a slave, beat down, abused and used, al while the the CEO eats his blue fin tuna and smokes his imported cigars while sipping on imported fine wine. Why would anyone want to work 12-18 hours a day with a 15 minute break, and make only ¥800 an hour. One thing Japanese companies have learned to do very well is to exploit their workers. The very main reason I will NEVER work for a Japanese company.

@garypen.I say that to myself everytime I go to a store and have to put my own purchases in a bag. Japanese thrive on customer service so I am told. However I have to bag my own goods.

Posted in: Japan labor body to step up support for foreigners, freelancers See in context

@dothehustle.AMEN! I found out as a foreigner living in Japan if I ever leave I only get 10% back in what I paid. BUT, I would have to live outside Japan for 360 days, fly back to Japan to do the paperwork in person, and then go back home. Sounds like a scam for sure!

@northernlife.

I will be surprised if he gets more than 10 years. His X-Wife got 8 I think, so I could see the broken Japanese legal system only giving him 10 years.

As others have said, getting an aircraft up in the Air as quick as possible is very important. Going into afterburner during takeoff is not uncommon. When there is an Aircraft inbound to your airspace, and you are sitting on the ground in your jet as this aircraft is coming there is limited time to get airborne. I used to be in the Navy, and having an Alert 5 aircraft (be airborne within 5 minutes) was not uncommon. Between china and russia wanting to play games, and training, there will be alot of activity.

Why someone would downvote my comment is beyond me. You downvote because I want to keep my kids safe? You that downvoted are prob the people that prey on kids. You are the reason I will be taking my kids to school.

Driving my kids to school everyday sounds better and better everytime I read this. Mykids won't be walking alone. We will be doing things the American way, and dropping and picking up our kids everyday. No need to walk 2km in the rain living in this house. Safety of our Children is #1!

Posted in: Man arrested for abandoning body of 85-year-old mother 80 kms from home See in context

Yeah. Because when someone that is old dies we just leave their body in the bushes. Don't worry about calling anyone? Another case of a anti-social, I don't want to work, I will just collect my mommy's money situation. I have noticed all "Unemployed" seem to abondon body's, so they can keep getting paid. Sounds like he broke her neck and dumped her body.

So many things have been wrong about this investigation/search. In America when someone is missing, the first 48 hours are the most critical. Searchers / JSDF / Fireman / Police have ALOT to learn. When I read that the search was suspended due to darkness I really thought these clowns searching need better training! You don't give up due to darkness, weather or any situation. YOU ADAPT AND OVERCOME THE ELEMENTS AND BRING THE PERSON YOU ARE LOOKING FOR HOME!

Posted in: Ex-Toyota rugby player gets suspended sentence for having cocaine See in context

If I get caught with Coke, I would go to prison for a very long time. After I get out of Prison I would be deported. What is different between him and I? 1. I don't play Rugby. 2. I don't do coke. 3. I am not Japanese. With that being said, my sentence would be more harsh. What if I got fired from my Job because if it? Is that enough punishment for a foreigner. Quite sure the mods will delete this, again.
