Posted in: Singapore Airlines to reduce fuel surcharges See in context

THE best airline, hands down, and surprisingly, sometimes the cheapest ticket from LAX to NRT. Good news indeed!

AKB48, no. A 'revised' AKB48 as Japan48, No. and definitely NOT Matsuko Deluxe! ALL of these = embarrassment. Please submit some good stuff Japan. Please.

Posted in: Did Sony's sexed-up PS Vita ad deserve to be yanked? See in context

The ad is lame. It does not say anything about the product it's selling. The innuendo is silly; seems this is all one big joke. After watching it, the viewer does not know one thing about the PS VITA snd has no good reason to want to find out more. It is simply, low-level.

There's no easier place to be an ambassador. Cush, cush, cushy job. She keeps a low profile, enjoys tons of perks, and is doing just fine.

Could not agree with "JoshuYaki" more. And, Kajima Seibei, never forget this classic, Q: "How much is enough?" A: "More."

Amazing how they make 'metal' palatable to those who otherwise would hate it. Notches above Lady Gaga, in every way and I hope she disappears as quickly as BABYMETAL has appeared on the music scene! Go girls!!

Posted in: Teacher criticized for attending son’s entrance ceremony instead of her own school’s See in context

This teacher is a true 'role model' and example to her students for their futures. Family first. My kids have all attended public schools here in Japan for the last 10 years, and darn the school system here for how often it does not get 'family first' in many areas. This goes for school clubs, sports teams, etc. Yes, we understand commitment, and teamwork, but come on, we are not owned by any of those!! Glad she decided rightly.

Posted in: Study: Samsung phone durable, but iPhone has edge See in context

That is indeed correct LostinNagoya, iPhone 6 has not been released and is merely rumor at this point. The facts are that 'iProducts', Thomas Anderson, are not typically fragile, having dropped both iPhones and iPods of various models, with only one near 'fatality', of my iPhone 3G. The broken glass panel on front was easily replaced myself with an inexpensive kit purchased online, using a YouTube 'how to' video. It worked great after that. Overall, Apple makes stuff that simply works, looks good, and is built solidly. Everything else out there is generally trying to copy, not innovate. Seriously.

This is in reference to vehicle arrivals at NRT. It does not change anything about security processes for passengers departing/arriving at NRT.

Posted in: Which English-language school would you recommend to your Japanese friends wishing to learn English? See in context

CrossCulture in Kagoshima City--all native speakers, American owned and operated. It integrates summer water sports like snorkeling, paddle boarding, and surfing. They also arrange homestays in California. Good stuff!

Posted in: Gymnastics gold medalist Uchimura spooked by 'stalker' See in context

Last I checked, a fit, well trained, even muscular I assume, young Olympian should not have any fear of a little girl on a bicycle. Generally there are no guns here in Japan, and she probably just wanted an autograph, or a hug.

Well, if 'Beat' was looking for some publicity at this point in his career, he was successful. Nothing like a viral reaction to opinion. Good job Beat!!

Posted in: Beat Takeshi compares same-sex marriage with bestiality See in context

@sodesuka "Beat is saying that this same-sex marriage push is a slippery slope. He is quite right."

EXACTLY. When the laws governing marriage are adjusted, erased, whatever...then why would it not be, by fluid, relative standards, to embrace 'marriage' between people and beast, multiple spouses, consenting (whenever age of consent is lowered anywhere) children and adults, mother and daughter, or father, same family, and so on and so on. If there is no standard, then there will be, NO STANDARD.

And again, @sodesuka "Beat has it right. Bit crude but correct."

I agree.

Posted in: 6-yr-old girl dies after car plows into schoolchildren in Osaka See in context

OK people, let's be fair here. This type of sad incident goes on all over the world, daily, and mostly they are accidents. Drivers here are no worse than anywhere else and sometimes better, considering all of the obstacles every second. I do agree that better safety measures could be taken around schools; i. e. posted speed limits, flashing lights and bright signs. And, it would indeed help if people were cited often for using keitais while driving, letting kids run around inside the car, holding doggies and children in their laps (sometimes at the wheel), etc. This is sad indeed and I grieve for the parents, siblings, and friends of this child.
