Posted in: Ex-captive Japanese journalist sues gov't over passport denial See in context

This person has cost the Japanese government a lot of money. Perhaps he should apply for citizenship in another country which will support his journalistic adventures.

Posted in: 2 SDF planes leave for Middle East on intel-gathering mission See in context

Waste of tax payers money and to what end. Even surveillance of that area is not going to do squat. Instead of paying for middle eastern oil, why does Japan not buy oil from the USA, we have plenty to sell.

What can Lebanon do better than Japan did to stop this multi-gazillion-aire from disappearing to another safe haven? Money talks, BS walks.

Posted in: Empress Emerita Michiko losing weight, vomiting since September See in context

Sorry to read this sad story. Could be bleeding in her gastrointestinal tract caused by contradictions from a blood thinner and other medicines interacting together. Hopefully the cancer did not spread to adjacent organs and this is a symptom. My best wishes and hope she is pain free.

Posted in: Pope wants to officialize immorality of nuclear arms possession See in context

I agree that nuclear power is dangerous when it fails to be contained but what about the pedophiles that contaminate the Catholic clergy that go unchecked and unpunished by the law and only get moved to a new diocese and repeat the crimes.

Posted in: Japan grapples with serving Fukushima food at 2020 Olympics See in context

Japan should not push the Fukushima food on the Olympic teams and attendees. Bad PR for Japan and Fukushima unless they can have outside (foreign as well) inspectors to measure radiation and publish their findings. Why not sell it to North Koreans or put it on boats and let the tide carry it to the DPRK and send the bill to Tepco.

Posted in: Pocket Babel: How translation tech and devices are changing business See in context

I bought a muama enence made in China. The advertising did not mention that it must pair via bluetooth to your cell phone which uses up your plan's minutes. It paired once with my cell then it never would pair again despite rebooting my cell and the translator numerous times. Return address is in Lithuania??? Costing me US$26.

I like Google translator but a stand alone device that does not require internet access to operate when translating would be the best choice.

I find though that sentences should be simple and direct for the best translation.

Boris is Britain's Donnie boy. They need to get their house in order before they commit to Brexit.

Posted in: U.S. emphasizes diplomacy in standoff with Iran See in context

The USA needs to stop sticking it's military might into other area's conflicts and spend those trillions of dollars at home. The USA has major infrastructure issues that could use those trillions to fix them. Foreign countries love that the USA will spend gazillions of $ and all they have to do is sign a piece of paper and buy military equipment. What a sad world we live in.

Posted in: Iran's Guard says ready for 'any scenario' amid U.S. standoff See in context

The Saudis have purchased and been trained on the best US military technology. They can fight Iran without the USA sending in troops. We dont need middle eastern oil but Europe and Asia do, so let them help the Saudis.

Thc and cbd would make the world a better place. Alcohol and tobacco are far more deadly.

Posted in: Trump says it looks like Iran was behind Saudi oil attacks See in context

Warfare has advanced technology wise a lot since Afghanistan and Iraq. Don't need that many boots on the ground with drones and cyber tactics to resolve a conflict and inflict less casualties on both sides.

Posted in: Trump says it looks like Iran was behind Saudi oil attacks See in context

Just hope this does commit US military involvement but if it comes to involvement, the conflict will not last long.

This is a sobering topic. Korean beer is quite good but not on par with Japanese, German or Mexican beers.

Posted in: Undeclared N Korean base has missile capable of striking Japan: study See in context

"An undeclared North Korean ballistic missile base in the country's southwest hosts medium-range missiles capable of striking half of Japan and anywhere in South Korea, a U.S. think tank says."

What kind of money wasted was spent on the US Think Tank to come up with this revelation? NK has been lobbing missiles thousands of miles for a few years now so why waste money and make this even news?

Posted in: Automatic brake detects nighttime pedestrians where there are no street lamps See in context

So why do you need this when you are already using your low beam headlamps? Also it senses a pedestrian and the high beam headlamps turn on blinding oncoming vehicles or a bicyclist.

These people are animals and believe that they are carrying out their acts of deadly violence in the name of their prophet. What a bunch of garbage.

Posted in: Air conditioner sprays ultra-fine mist for cooling at train station in Tokyo See in context

Old technology and not worthy of news. Mist cooling systems have been around for decades and used in restaurants, bars and home patios where there is high heat and low humidity as a means to cool an area.

Posted in: Mental illness issues could make death penalty impossible for Kyoto Animation arsonist See in context

Just because you are not stable should not affect the fact that he is a murderer and should be dealt suitable punishment. The death penalty is fine for this dirt bag.

Posted in: Medical examiner confirms Epstein death a suicide by hanging See in context

This was not a suicide, it was a well engineered hit because Epstein has so much dirt on powerful people.It will be interesting to see if his black book of names gets published and anything gets done.

This is a bizarre statement by Trump. The only thing that North Korea will understand is blunt force.
