Posted in: Woman arrested after stealing box with GPS tracker from man’s doorstep See in context

It's funny, but I heard of a situation when a foreign person had their iphone taken while in Tokyo a year or so ago and could find its location to a house, they wanted nothing to do with it. Was that a once off or anyone else know of similar stories?

Self diagnosing mental conditions is becoming a trend for some, but not all. Confusing times.

Four news stories on this site alone about this guy. But the media can't get enough of him and T-Mania will ensure he is the next President. Reap what you sow...

Right at the end '...receiving funds from entities that were doing business with the state before a national election. Such donations are prohibited by election law.'

Now, will those that broke the law get punished? Or is this 'election law' a meaningless made up law ?

So many scandals with Japanese companies every other week and zero actions to anyone reasonible or even inconvenienced in any way. If any of them had a foreign person on the board you can absolutley be 1000% sure they would be incarcerated for this.

Posted in: Kishida unveils plan to tackle birthrate crisis See in context

All the downvotes to people who say Japan is overpopulated is peak hipocrisy. Every other article is about human impact to the world and it's the global population that is totally unsustainable. It's the awkward truth but hey, drive it all over the edge as you want.

Posted in: Trump digs in on election lies, downplays Jan 6 violence, insults accuser during CNN town hall event See in context

People who think he isn't going to get the next presidency have their head in the sand. This guy's behaviour does nothing but increase his 'standing' amongst 50% and some change of the US voters, and that 'some change' is all it takes. Putting the same guy up against him that is so easy to throw insults at is some smooth brained action on the Dems side, they are literally gifting this to him.

Posted in: Gov't considering mask-free school graduation ceremonies See in context

This pandemic seems to have triggered some strange permanent behavioural change in Japan. They seem to believe the masks show how 'clean' the person is, or something like that, because they are not interested in removing them at all. Especially outdoors everyone is still masked. It's beyond comprehension since many months ago.

Posted in: 'Work without limits': Japan's teachers battle for change See in context

She says teaching is often seen as a "sacred job" devoted to children, so anything viewed as selfish -- including taking note of hours worked -- can be frowned upon.

This sums up Japan 'culture' with regards to work. Work is life here, and working to death is seen as 'honurable'

From outside looking in its crazy but thats how it is across the board so changing the entire mindset of the populace is the task... ganbare indeed.

If something illegal has been suspected of happening isn't it the police that do the questioning? Or is this a chat in a cosy corner of Ginza about 'how can we make this a better relationship?'

A friend of mine at a US hospital said that the mark up on drugs sold to patients was typically about 1000%.

Your 'friend' is actually talking about the markup US hospitals typically make on every patient. For the drug makers, it's another zero or two added.
