Posted in: Subway bad manners See in context

Is people carrying lots of baggage an offense? I'm sure if they had the choice to ride a taxi they would. Anyone of us could be placed in this position, and we're not doing it on purpose. This nation is just becoming a place of disgruntled, angry people, and in a rush.

Posted in: Japan's low virus mortality rate reflects social manners: Aso See in context

Millions of American citizens are infected with XMRV’s(I don’t know it this is the correct acronym) —they are retroviruses which weaken the immune system. Dr. Judy Mikowitz stayed that they could have gotten it from one of the many contaminated vaccinations that Americans get each year. I am not an expert. I hope someone more qualified can answer this one.

Retirement should not be a forced issue, but a choice that one can either retire or go on working.

Posted in: Use of private English tests for university exams delayed after gaffe See in context

Why must students be forced to learn English at all? Those who speak and write fluently don't get it from the classroom. Maybe the government should just drop it as a required subject.

Posted in: Justice minister apologizes as 6,600 police hunt fugitive thief See in context

The thief is not evil. He could be anyone on the street. The waste of government funds on the manhunt for a harmless man is pathetic. He should be pardoned and the media should be ordered to disperse.

My daughters always get discontinued models at steep discounts with their carrier, making their payments very affordable.

He purportedly had an addiction to sex and his room is filled with porn. Even on TV a younger talent berated him for his abnormal mentality. He needs expert consultation.

“They said I want Japan ... to get nuclear weapons. Give me a break,” he objected. “I want Japan and Germany and Saudi Arabia and South Korea and many of the NATO nations - they owe us tremendous. We’re taking care of all these people. And what I want them to do is pay up.”

Why is this guy so pompous? Disgusting.

Posted in: Sushi alert: Grim outlook for bluefin tuna See in context

Japan will still be eating more because they are swayed by TV doctors urging them to eat tuna for its Omega 3s, despite tuna's high mercury levels. I have not seen one expert on TV that has voiced concern over the overfishing of tuna, obviously because it does not make for a good TV show.

This was a real surprise, as he had been performing subpar in previous events. Artistry and elegance still trumps Jin Boyang' s jaw-dropping number of quads.

The Godfather has brought up a trait common to some selfish men brought up wrong by their mothers. They will end up getting ditched by their ex. No good manners...not nice.

Posted in: Gov't panel discusses baby stroller use on public transportation See in context

Parents with strollers are doing the best they can. If they find a seat they can fold the stroller but in no other situation can this be possible. No extra rules of courtesy should be asked of them but from passengers sharing the same car.

Posted in: Zero applicants for plan to promote women at work See in context

Shakai hoken was made to support nonworking mothers who needed to take their allergic, sick children to the doctor's office, attend community meetings, plan annual local events, take their children to cram school, do their part of PTA throughout the school year. They form the social network that makes communities safe for growing children and aging seniors. And all of this is unpaid work. The simple lunches and teas help fortify the binds. It worked during the Showa Era, but obviously shakai hoken needs to be overhauled to see to the needs of smaller families.

How do doctors conclude that risk of dying is 25% less after a year and a half? Wouldn't changes in diet and lifestyle be less dangerous and with fewer side effects?
