Unlike passenger cars, trucks are permitted to wear chains in Hokkaido in Winter. Might be a good idea to make it a legal requirement.
Yep. Ive been in chain-shod buses in Hokkaido and Tohoku - Yamagata from memory. Certainly a bumpy and noisy ride, but probably avoids many accidents.
All the best to those injured - wishing for a full recovery.

If it is YOUR property, why should a government tell you that you cannot burn your own book- be it a bible, Koran, Jewish Torah, Buddhist text, whatever. It is just a bunch of pages that is YOUR property.
This is a backwards law I'd expect from an Islamic nation/terrorist group - not Denmark.

The Hammers showing their depth and class away against massive rivals. No wonder they are bossing teams around in Europe.
Gaffer Moyes has achieved it all - and is again showing his football mind is up there with the very best. Hammers had better be careful he isn't imminently poached.

He is the real deal this gaffer Moriyasu. He has recently masterminded victories against former World Cup winners Spain, Germany as well as the formidable Turks. Rising star of world football management.
Who would bet against him leading the Samurai Blue to glory in Qatar? Not me.

> Japan has the highest debt in the developed world by a country mile (263% of GDP).
The Fascist Russia supporters are grasping at straws, using "debt" as an argument.
Almost ALL Japanese debt is domestic. Stop being alarmist.
It really is rather curious how many supporters of Fascist Russia, Communist China and totalitarian North Korea there are on JAPAN Today. Endless hate for Japan.

Good for Japan. Ukraine needs help from democracies- and Japan has stepped up along with others.

Reason 1 - it is immoral, barbaric and illegal to kill another human being.
Wrong, wrong and legally completely wrong.

Hats off to these patriots and survivors. The world can learn a lot from them. Hope they can still enjoy a cold beer with their old comrades.
Japan is certainly no longer a fascist, aggressor regime. Instead she works with fellow freedom-loving nations like the US, as brothers. Sadly the same cannot be said for a few of Japans neighbours who despise freedom, democracy and rule of law.

The very best supporters of fascist Russia will get is a smattering of their athletes marching in under the white Olympic flag, alongside with stateless athletes and refugees. That is the very best they can hope for.
If any of them have stated any support on social media for Fascist Russia's invasion of Ukraine - or indeed if they have served with the Russian military - they are not going to get into Paris.
So, at best a little rabble of Russian athletes under the white flag. And as Jimizo stated - they will be tested and watched like a hawk - because we all know Russians are notorious cheats.

Condolences to the families and loved ones of these 8 men who died serving their country and in their duty to protect Japan.
RIP. Fly high, airmen.

if the death of the woman can not be confirmed, the sentence is illegal and groundless.
What a bizarre thing to say. "Illegal and groundless" in your mind maybe - but absolutely legal in French and most system's law. Of course the conviction is legal without a body.
Hope this cold-blooded killer gets more years added on (if the French appeals system allows this).

PM Sunak, Cleverly, Braverman and others can consider themselves very lucky their families slipped through the cracks and got into a First world nation.
Having a minimum salary requirement for British citizens to enter their own nation to reside with their kids and spouse is a disgrace.

Rest in Peace.
These men died in the duty of securing the defense of Japan. They will be honored - and deservedly so.

Hoping the FA come down hard on the Citizens- and especially Haaland. He may be an incomparable goal scorer, but he needs to learn sportsmanship. Time to stop being a brat. Should have been immediately sent off for abusing the ref.
And still waiting for the points penalty handed down to City over their dodgy financial dealings. A season or two in lower leagues may be just what they need.

@Fighto so your assumption is every old man in their 60-70's should be commonly characterized as a gangsters? SMFH!!
Not at all. It is a small minority - but if you read the crime sections of Japanese news you will see it is not that uncommon for gangs to have older members - often in senior roles. (In many other countries they'd have long been "knocked off" by rivals before retirement age!)

We need a lot more information here. Was he involved in a dispute with another resident? Was he a gangster known to police? (It's not uncommon for gang members in Japan to be in their 60s, 70s or 80s)
In any case RIP.

is Red Sea part of USA already?
maybe I need to update my google maps ...
International waters. The freedom of the seas means any nation or vessel can be there - and nations like the US and Japan have billions of dollars of money in the area so use naval protection.
Be a real shame if these Houthi terrorist scum blow themselves up with some of their own artillery.

Plenty of reports online about fascist Russia releasing murderers and rapists (common in Russia), as well as recruiting mentally disabled men, alcoholic lunatics, and teenagers just out of school - and throwing them into battle to replace their huge amount of casualties.
Get those shipments of body bags ready.

History has recorded what the Russian troops did to surrendered Germans after WW2. Mass rapes and murders of women and children, summary executions of civilians, looting and total destruction.
They have form - and it seems nothing has changed.

You’re naive if you believe the US will ever go to war with China for Japan.
The US is compelled to defend Japan.
Article 5 of the US-Japan Joint Security Treaty commits the United States to defend Japan if it is attacked by a third party.
Communist China can believe that the US won't defend Japan if they attack Japan - at their own peril.

The US-Japan alliance is unshakeable. Japans enemies are hoping otherwise, but the bonds are very strong.
Having said that, the US should follow Japans direction and stand down all Osprey aircraft pending investigations.
Japan seems to be able to operate these aircraft safely- but the US has a serious maintenance issue - likely due to a lack of skilled engineers/personnel. Who would be a US Military aircraft engineer or mechanic when you can get much greater pay in the private sector.
