Good for them. Great progress in Taiwan.

Would be great if she felt is was socially acceptable enough to not hide her face.

I don't believe she's doing that to hide her face. She's easily recognizable.

Those guys need to be stopped. Don't they appreciate where they are when landing in Japan ?!

His instagram is pretty disagreeable, https://www.instagram.com/p/BxjxXPsBruS/ "I’ve moved to is astoundingly beautiful! Having a beer and a smoke over the canal, sitting on the ghost in the first photo" and let's destroy it by tagging the bridge.

Alex EinzToday 10:34 am JST

if a foreign worker doesnt understand where he works or totally ignorant about his location or work... cant fix stupid.

What an uneducated and distasteful comment.

Imagine someone born in the far country side in Indonesia or Philippines, sent to scrap some radioactive crap in Japan, being told he'll just help Japan reconstruction after the tsunami, not speaking Japanese, I sympathize with him.

Well it would be very regrettable if hundreds went home with cancers and the media caught onto it.

By the time it happens they'll be sent back home and scattered in SEA, no worries.

Bolton has been on a personal vendetta against Iran forever. This is his war, its personal war, it's coming. The US has been preparing the world to it for a few months now, what's going on is very similar to what they did before the war in Iraq.

Trump is just that. No more, no less. Respect him. He is the democratically elected leader of the world

I know you're trolling, but man that one was good ! Democratically elected leader of the world ! You made my day.

The truth is that the US is becoming more irrelevant day by day.

theFuToday 09:00 am JST

Change how schools teach Hong Kong history, check. The mainland has been guiding teachers on how to use specific terms. "Handover" or "taking back" are not used anymore.

It's also now difficult to find a school teaching in Cantonese, they are now in Mandarin. Eliminate the local language in a generation or two, check.

I am always surprised by the number of poster that seem to appear in this kind of post. What is that, is it some kind of paid propaganda ? Or a particular active group ? Has JapanToday so much views that it deserves a particular treatment from those groups ?

Samit BasuToday 10:59 am JST

The building permit expired; it was issued years ago but Japanese government sat on it, because Abe san refuses to build an embassy at the present location where the comfort woman statue is erected and the forced laborers are campaigning to erect their own sta

I am surprised to see that this is an issue for Japan only in Korea, the statues in Hong Kong in front of the Japanese consulate are way more visible and in a huge traffic area, add to that numerous posters of the war actions.

Posted in: China says it wants to eliminate bitcoin mining See in context

Ah_soToday 01:26 am JST

Bitcoin has been a boon for criminals and speculators. It is almost never used for ordinary transactions

And this is based on your feelings ?

The UN estimates that between 800B and 2T USD is washed annually. In 2018 Europol estimated that 3% to 4% of that is washed through crypto currency ...

I would say it's time to take the USD down to stop crime.

and does not pass the standard economic tests as a form of "money".

I also like that one, what are those economic tests ?

All of this is jus plain wrong, just repeating the propaganda anti-bitcoin.

sourpussToday 09:21 am JST

What government doesn’t? And given the fact that bitcoin is a serious enabler of criminal operations, they have all the more reason to do so.

Cash is the best enabler for criminal operations, USD in particular. It's really easy to pay for your drugs, weapons or hide from revenue department through cash, it's virtually untraceable. Bitcoin is actually traceable, you can identify all the transactions from a source to a destination, and it's there forever.

Not that I’ entirely against bitcoin, it’s just that the people who promote it always seem like they’re trying too hard to dismiss any negative points, like the power consumption necessary to support bitcoins

Also doesn't make any sense, not much power is required to support bitcoin, one computer is enough to support everything. Nothing in comparison to for example, 2 banks and Visa required to do a credit card transaction.

or the fact that it really isn’t as secure as it’s made out to be.

As far as I know no security flaw has been found yet, can you enlighten me ?

If he's the CEO of the company you own (Renault, a French government majority owned company), why wouldn't they help him???

Just to correct that, the French government owns only 15% of Renault's shares.

Those costs are borne by the US taxpayer, while Trump and family profits during his time in office. https://www.cheatsheet.com/money-career/all-the-ways-trump-cashes-in-on-the-u-s-presidency.html/

Whether they like Trump or not I really don't get how Americans can accept that ...

Posted in: Bitcoin soars past $5,000; mystery buyer seen as catalyst See in context

mmwkdwApr. 3 10:36 pm JST

Algo's generally aim not to move the market. So for one to have done so, suggests either a bad algo implementation, or a rush job to buy a significant amount of BTC in a limited time-frame... someone may be urgently needing to shift money from one location to another to avoid taxes ? It would be very interesting to see if those capital flows can be traced back to one individual.

The exchanges on which it traded have strong KYC policies, even more with this kind of amount. The guy knew it was going to move and be pretty obvious. Pretty sure there was nothing illegal in there.

Posted in: French government feels heat after violent Paris riots See in context

Did you even read the article ? Those riots are not by legitimate yellow vests but by the black blocs, there only to cause as much disruption as possible. Yellow vests don't support them, call for the governement to stop them. Also, as a side note there is no "leader of the Yellow Vests", that's one of their main point.

@ toasted - class snobbery and hatred of the poor? what are you talkin about? I am one of those poor. I bust my ass and work paycheck to paycheck. nobody's handing me money or giving me free housing

I don't know of there situation so I wouldn't be so quick judging them. I guess some of them are still paying their 30 years loan they could afford by "busting their ass and work paycheck to paycheck" on their now worthless habitation ... Sounds like a tough situation to be.

I really don't understand what the USA is doing.

It's obvious NK won't give up its nuclear arsenal, giving it up would be suicidal, history shows it. That's the only thing keeping their border safe. I understand Kim at this point.

Is the US really that dumb hoping for denuclearisation or something else is cooking up in the back?

SpeedToday 04:37 pm JST

My buddy wouldn't answer the door whenever the NHK guy came to his house so the "thug" ended up finding out where his wife's workplace was and shook her down for the money there.

The NHK guys wouldn't leave the customer counter until she paid up which she eventually did because she didn't want him to make a scene in front of her bosses and co-workers.

On people's workplace ! First time I hear that, that's a pretty bad extortion method ...
