Posted in: Japanese firms weigh production shift out of China as virus wreaks havoc See in context

Long-term, shifting production to a stable, peaceful, Japan-loving nation like Vietnam - where wages and costs are cheaper than PRC - is a smart move. Far too many risks having so much production in Communist PRC.

Last time I checked, Vietnam is still a communist country. No such risk?

Posted in: Pompeo calls China 'truly hostile' to U.S. See in context

"Today we're finally realizing the degree to which the Chinese Communist Party is truly hostile to the United States and our values," Pompeo told the conservative Hudson Institute in New York.

Pompeo highlighted China's clampdown on Hong Kong protests and incarceration of Uighur Muslims and said Beijing was seeking international domination -- implicitly rejecting US experts who argue that the communist leaders are fundamentally pragmatic.

politicians nowadays talked thru their axx. In the first paragraph, he says the Chinese are hostile towards the US, then gives examples in Hong Kong and Uighur. Hong Kong and Uighur doesn’t belongs to US?

Where’s the freedom in Liberia, Venezuela, Catalonia...? We have too much politicians without morals in power, that why the world are so messed up.

Chilean president could not arrest the protesters. The protesters have a Right to protest, they are fighting for Freedom. US congress should pass a law to protect Chilean Human Rights now! Fancy Nancy should visit Chile to give the protesters support!

Posted in: Hong Kong leader presents policy address via video after disruption See in context

Dictatorial Chinese govt must leave HK'ers alone to live freely and democratically. Involvement in HK affairs should be limited to mutually beneficial and agreed upon economic cooperation. Otherwise, butt out!

I hope the brave protesters win their struggle, God bless and help them.

Same situation as Dictatorial Spanish govt must leave Catalonians alone to live freely and democratically. The people of Catalonia have voted for independence.

I wonder why the US representatives doesn't pass a law supporting the Catalonians? where is the democracy in Spain?

when activists blocked approach roads, threw debris on to train tracks and trashed the MTR subway station in the nearby new town of Tung Chung.

Threw debris on to the train tracks? These are terrorists not activists. Innocent passengers are going to get hurt or killed if the train derails.

wow, fear mongering and 3rd rate reporting.

First paragraph reads “likely” from unnamed sources yet the title screams “CHINESE AIRCRAFT USED JAPANESE SHIPS AS TARGETS: GOVT” the Japanese government didn’t protest nor disclose publicly.

Posted in: Former Nissan exec Kelly released on bail; being examined in Ibaraki hospital See in context

Kelly was scheduled to have surgery on Dec 7 in Nashville, Tennessee, but flew to Japan last month after being told that he was needed in person at a board meeting, Dee Kelly said in the video. Kelly was arrested after his car was stopped on the expressway soon after his arrival.

Wow, just like copied straight out from a drama script. Someone in Nissan Japan is plotting a revolt then tricked Ghosn and Kelly to attend a meeting and pre-arranged the police to arrest them upon arrival in Japan, because he knows he can’t do anything to Ghosn when he is abroad. Did they bribe the politicians and police to take such swift actions? I won’t be buying Nissan for sure with such shady figure leading them.

Posted in: Japanese fishing boat owners charged in Hawaii with helping smuggle shark fins See in context

wow, the Japanese and Indonesian are caught smuggling shark fins,

but it had to be the Chinese fault.

Most of the upscale Chinese restaurants owned by Japanese with Japanese chefs offers Shark Fins.

And the Japanese are rejecting shark fins? I beg to differ.

Posted in: Okinawa rally mourns governor, opposes U.S. base relocation See in context

If the Okinawans are so rejecting the base, why don’t they use the landfill and money to build a man made island elsewhere just like the Chinese did. Why they just had to insist on building the base in Okinawa where the locals are strongly objecting. Baffled me.

She then found a series of problems with the new site in Toyosu, including soil and groundwater contamination as well as the discovery that contractors had inexplicably failed to fill in a basement at the new site with clean soil as a buffer against underground pollution.

No one held responsible for this? How is the progress on the investigation on Ishihara?

Posted in: Nagano drive-thru funeral home to serve less mobile mourners See in context

I can understand rituals being a hassle, but if they can do drive thru style. It’s better to simplify the rituals and let anyone who wanted to pay their respect to the deceased to come in bow, offer condolences then walk away. No need for the priests, food, gifts, party etc. Not even bother to get off their car is a disrespect to the deceased, better off if they don’t attend. Bank transfer to the widow and kids if you want to help out will do.

Educator60,

It is primarily aimed at allowing seniors and the disabled to attend funerals, but may also be used in future by people short on time.

people short on time? also, that guy in the picture doesn't look like seniors or disabled (he's in the driver seat).

A court ruled Wednesday that a nuclear reactor in southwestern Japan should not operate because it is too close to an active volcano and could be affected by a major eruption.

The world is getting weirder, you need a learned judge to tell this? Nuclear reactor beside an ACTIVE volcano? are these people plans to suicide bringing Japan along with them?

Tokyo-Engr, I wouldn’t try my luck to any restaurant have a clear dislike towards certain groups of people which I happens to belong in. Yes, I might be served but who knows what “additional ingredients” might be added to your food, behind the scene.

By the way, was wondering what happened to the “Customer is King” slogans in the nineties?

Posted in: Trump: I should have left UCLA players in jail in China See in context

Ball also minimized the severity of his son's offence, saying: "I'm from L.A. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses.

Wow, classic. Yeah, there are things worse than theft, but that doesn't mean that theft is correct. By his logic, murder is worse, so we can rape, rob and steal etc? I can see why his son steals, i think he will steal again because by their standard, thieving ain't no big deal. He should spend some time in jail and repent.

Posted in: After toppling Apple in China, Oppo eyes world market See in context

If Oppo are eyeing the West market, won't they be vulnerable to lawsuits in the European and American courts for patent infringements? Surely they are not protected out of China? By the way, I'm curious what patents did they steal to incur such wrath from the commenters above.

Posted in: Mori says Tokyo faces transport crisis following Tsukiji decision See in context

I'm guessing someone highly connected to LDP wanted Tsukiji's land. That's why they are hell bent on selling it. I can imagine back then they should be cursing the previous governor for being caught lining his pockets with petty amounts, which then resulted in Koike coming in the picture and messed up their plans.
