The FACT that Japan has to consider making a LAW for this shows how completely idiotic & backwards they are.

Currently there's a Canadian Naval ship anchored off the place where Meghan is staying.

zichi, That doesn't mean anything, I mean anything, I mean where else is the Cdn navy going to park a vessel, either on the east or west coast, the north has too much ice this time of year :)

This couple should have been more honest BEFORE they got hitched that they were going to bail, IF, that is what they had actually decided together!

I suspect this was Meghans plan all along & Harry is being taken along for the ride, time will tell if he can get his pants back from her. She has asserted herself once the little one was born for sure.

I too think it wont last, clearly even though Meghan had to deal with some crap(what royal to be doesn't!!) she didn't even remotely give it a chance, that is why I predict the marriage will break down.

Time will tell as they say!!

I could understand if the ashes were given to a kid to deal with but a 53 year old should have EASILY been able to deal with the ashes in a more dignified manner.

Just give him a stern talking & send him on his way......

It is unfortunate, its  become hard to find any J-single malts these days.

Now there is a bunch of blended whiskey on the shelves & often at higher prices then the single malts of years gone by so I now mostly give it a pass.

If you can try to track down some Ichiro from Chichibu, you WILL enjoy!

Posted in: Queen agrees to let Harry, Meghan move part time to Canada See in context

These 2 both have their own histories, aren't young, Hollywood & Royal couple, what could possibly go wrong.....

Seems like Megan is really throwing her weight around by wanting to live in Cda as well, she supposedly knew you would think she was marrying into the Royal family & now once a kid is born she is pushing to get them out......wish them good luck they ARE going to need it bigtime!!!

Posted in: Ghosn's Japan lawyer: Questioning averaged 7 hours a day See in context

It looks like most people who read English news articles in Japan are sympathetic with Ghosn - baffles me why. The guy was screwing the system for years to amass and keep his fortune. But you don’t want to hear the truth..

Learn to read I & almost everyone posting is saying PUT him on TRIAL & then PROSECUTE...….if you can!!!

What myself & so many others have a REAL issue with is the brutality of the system, the FORCED CONFESSIONS!!

Japan....corruption, bribery...….hahahahahaha!!

This has been going on & on & on since FOREVER!!!!  I think one can still make a good return investing in brown envelopes here in Japan!!!!

Been saying this for decades, bribes & corruption are the prime reason Japan is so expensive & why we all get so little value for our yen in Japan, we have to pay for this stuff sadly!!

Pathetic...…..if the IOC is looking towards videogames for the future then please just start SHUTTIING the Olympics down!

Gaming is fine in moderation, like most anything but it doesn't need any more promotion, gaming has already become a MAJOR problem\addiction in far too many lives & looks to get worse

just nuts!!

Posted in: Letters from Japan: 'We’re not getting married?' See in context

RecklessJan. 8 03:44 pm JSTI think saying that you can't get married because you want to start a business is total BS. It's a red herring. As long as she's aware upfront that he might not have a lot of money and that is fine.

Yeah, but down the road a bit when she feels she isn't getting enough attention, compared to the guys work trouble usually ensues, seen it tons of times! Women are all fine with things until they are NOT.

Better for the guy, IF he is serious, to give the business his full attention & if it pans out then go from there, but my comment above still applies!!

Posted in: Japanese gov't, prosecutors condemn Ghosn's remarks in Lebanon See in context

I haven't watched all the footage yet but think I have up until the questions started, Ghosn seems to have laid things out pretty well.

The J-system of course looks like the barbaric system it IS!

I haven't been watching TV here to gauge the talking heads, hope, pray they demonstrate some honesty.....

The ministers comments are just plain awful & NO ONE quoted in the article said anything that even remotely resembles the truth in the proceeding up until Ghosn left!

What I found interesting & also downright scary was Ghosn's description of how the prosecutors RAN the courts, bossing the judges around, doesn't surprise me really, it does sound like judges have no spine at all.

I hope the light shines bright for many days to come on this horrible system in place in Japan.

Posted in: Letters from Japan: 'We’re not getting married?' See in context

The guy clearly said he wants to start his own business, NOT a small thing he is absolutely correct he should put any marriage off until he tries his business idea out as it will take EVEYTHING out of him for him to succeed, a marriage would only mess it up almost guaranteed, a marriage would draw his focus away & likely result in failure of the business & any marriage

Sadly this is all to true about companies, you need to be CAREFUL about when  you speak about things like climate issues or politics anywhere near or even outside the office, people do NOT have any real power in this & govts will NOT help them!

I have been saying for years the rich & powerful are killing the Golden Goose, the middle classes, greed has been off the charts the last 30+ years!

profits need to be more evenly spread out the top 10% own an incredibly obscene amount of wealth worldwide, as this 7-11 owner correctly states this is unsustainable!

Posted in: Ex-TV reporter appeals against ruling in Japan #MeToo case See in context

Let me just check your logic to make sure I understand what you are saying. You are saying that women can't trust men not to rape them, and knowing that, it is therfore their own fault if they trust the wrong man and get raped. Further, it is more wrong to drink to excess than it is to rape someone. Is that about right?

That sounds about right, yes. GW is saying that women who are attacked should bear some if not most of the responsiblity because they chose to trust the man who attacked them. I think GW is saying that women should not trust any man. Not the ones they already know, not the ones they will know, and not any man, at all. #Yesallmen, is GW's message. Seems fair enough.

GIT Maria

Nice try but you both are fortunately wrong in your assessments of my post. The guy in this blurb is clearly a piece of work & most likely guilty, looks that way to me.

I am merely pointing out all people should be responsible for their actions to a certain extent, BOTH men & women care and ARE nasty to each other, sad but true

CCitiZen  is right to do their best to try to educate his kids about the possible nastiness anyone can face in this world.

Would be neat if Carlos showed a copied of his passport STAMPED OUT at KIX tomorrow!!!

Seems the media is NOT spending too much time checking what happened at KIX.

And the prosecution with 24hr surveillance that NO ONE looked at is priceless, I thought they would at least have people watching the live feed, but apparently not LOL!!

IF people are going to go out drinking with co-workers or anyone for that matter, they need to act responsibly, so people shouldn't take advantage of others, but also one who drinks too much also needs to take responsibility for their actions, who is more wrong.....well that would be case to case

Sounds to me like both parties share some in the blame in this one

Posted in: 24-hour video on fugitive Ghosn checked only once a month See in context

 I DID several times (yes, for cargo and I was just there to bring docs to pick/ship stuff, I usually don't travel in containers) . So Ghosn could access there like I did. The question was how he could get to the tarmac in KIX. I give you a possibility.

Coskuri, you accessed warehouses & offices in the cargo area but you didn't access any aircraft, one CAN access aircraft if they are doing some work related to the aircraft, maintenance, fueling, loading, unloading cargo etc BUT those people are NOT going to be on passenger manifests for any flights

Posted in: Japan calls Ghosn's escape 'unjustifiable' in first official comments See in context

"Our country's criminal justice system sets out appropriate procedures to clarify the truth of cases and is administered appropriately, while guaranteeing basic individual human rights. The flight by a defendant on bail is unjustifiable," said Masako Mori.

Prosecutors argue that the lengthy detention is required to prove guilt beyond doubt and they are unwilling to charge a suspect if their case is not iron-clad.

The court is fair and will only find people guilty beyond reasonable doubt, they said in their statement.

Insane, the first quote is totally inaccurate, just read the next two quotes, ALL from the same article, Mori & the prosecutors ADMIT their system is barbaric, they take people into custody, ruin their lives totally & in the end only find people guilty beyond a reasonable doubt......yeah right!!

This system is unfit for a so called modern nation, it needs a serious re-invent, can you imagine how many innocent are locked up & how many guilty are walking around freely, what a mess!
