It could be that the firing is considered the punishment.

Posted in: Half of students find primary school English education less than useful: survey See in context

I've got private students, as wel as teaching as an English teacher in public schools.

One of my private English students is a doctor. He was honest with me one time about English in public schools. He said that it was a joke.

English will never fit within the confines of Japanese thinking imo.

He has saught a position in the Chinese government before. He had bad words to say about the US. And yet he can still go to the USA and enjoy the freedom of speech. Doubt he could do that in China.

This sounds all nice and glamorized until someone contracts a new disease, or some crazy person commits a crime, then only to be shunned by the media exposure.

Looks like the Philippines didn't have a good relationship with Obama. According to some other media, Duterte called Trump and is looking forward to a better relationship than the current administration.

Maybe he had enough of Obama? Maybe Obama should have polished up on his diplomacy skills? It seems to have been the case.

Posted in: New allegations of sexual misconduct rock Trump campaign See in context

Hillary is guilty by association, with Bill's accusers saying Hillary helped to cover it up.

Trump is no ace either in this category.

Why does Hillary's side fail to bring it up? Are they really level headed people that understand right from wrong?

What, just pour me another cup of that utopia that Hillary is serving and drink it no matter what?

And ppl mistake me for liking Trump. Why? Because I don't turn a blind eye to Hillary and take whatever she serves?

Bring on the negative score, I'd be disappointed if it didn't turn out that way. It would prove me wrong on Hillary's people.

The part that is most foolish is both sides claim superiority over the other. After all, both sides are guilty of the same offense.

Wow, sexual misconduct? Shouldn't that disqualify him?

I think even after his apology, he should still resign and say sorry to Hillary Clinton for all the terrible, terrible things he said and just let her win. Then they should examine all his emails to see if he sent any damaging, classified information to his businesses from his own private server.

Next they should investigate his wife to see if she has violated any human's rights laws.

There, that should do it. That will get rid of that big mean guy who won't let Hillary Clinton win.

Posted in: Clinton returns to campaign trail after pneumonia See in context

By the comments written, everyone has a stronger sense of their own party above common sense of the party's capability. I am neither for or against either party, but to bring the same standard of questions to BOTH parties presented.

There are definately hings I DON'T like about both parties.

Members of both parties exhibit the inability to bring up better questions, other than 'just because that's the way ai want it' childish views.

Both parties ppl, plz grow up

Give the people something they already have, and look better for doing it?

On another note, don't foolishly boast of something you already have. It will encourage cowards to try harder.

Posted in: Russia building new military bases on islands claimed by Japan See in context

I think this also reveals how Japan thinks of the rest of the world. All, or everything(make your choice) for them, but nothing for you. 2 islands was a very generous offer, if it was coming from Russia.

Posted in: Japan should accept more refugees, fix asylum system: UNHCR See in context

In five years they'll have a meeting to talk about when their next meeting should be to talk about the refugees. That meeting will just be talking about the refugees, not being hasty to make a quick decision about receiving the refugees not just yet. Then they'll have a meeting talking about the Japanese interest of the situation. They'll thoroughly talk about that situation until they feel 100% secure about their situation. By that time the refugees around the world would've had grandchildren and the problem would have been resolved and the meetings dissolved.

Posted in: Russia and Turkey refuse to back down in row over jet downing See in context

Geographically speaking,

It is near impossible to use jets near that area without the jets having to violate Turkey's air space. They've been doing it for a while now, and Turkey had courage enough to stand up to that. It's a delicate situation when Turkey and Russia have different interests. It's going to create even more conflict.

Posted in: California adopts bill ensuring equal pay for women See in context


I presume that this 'epidemic' is no less than discrimination against women.

It's going to take more than just passing this bill to help women.

Women getting paid differently than a man, is not right IF she does the same work as a man.
