Acting a real fool. Stop listening and watching any stories about this clown and maybe he will fizzle out, I hope.

2 million dollars would not give all those impacted by the hurricane a plate of black beans and rice. It would be interesting to know how much of this aid money will not get to the persons who need assitance and end up in rip off artists pockets.

What about using a method to possibly teach those brain cells a simplified alphabet and number system to learn an idea or concept. Wouldn't that be cool.

Posted in: Letters of fallen WWII Japanese soldiers found in U.S. See in context

Many soldiers in all wars took and kept souvenirs to show off back home. A business associate of mine has a "Samurai" sword that his father-in-law took from a family's home during the occupation in Japan after the war where he served. I feel that it was very wrong to steal a family's belongings and especially a sword that was probably past down in that family for generations.

Good for Mr. Royal to recognize the value in returning those letters to the families.

Posted in: Japan to pledge around $30 billion in African aid at conference: report See in context

Yeah right. Any country investing in 3rd world countries to the tune of millions and billions of $$ is not doing it for nothing in return. A friend of mine worked in the oil industry in Nigeria and Angola told me 20 years ago that the Chinese were so prevalent in Angola that it was scary. He told me that the Chinese investments in Angola paid off their ruling government officials to look the other way while China harvested almost all of the natural resources there and shipped them back home. The same for the European nations that raped the Americas for centuries for the natural resources. The USA, France, Portugal, Spain and Britain for centuries have colonized Southern Asia (present day India, Pakistan), Middle Eastern countries, Indochina, Indonesia and the Philippines on the banner of raising the bar of enlightenment to those poor countries who had huge natural resources in oil, food, spices, coal etc.

Japan is no different but a few centuries too late to enjoy most of the riches of those areas. Even the Japanese before WWII were advancing on Eastern Asian countries for raw materials until the USA wanted to stop them for their own gains and used the Pearl Harbor attack (the USA knew the Japanese were going to attack somewhere but they were asleep at the wheel) as a reason to get into WWII in Europe and far East.

The investments are for bribes and cooperation to rape those 3rd world world countries and not for any humanitarian reasons. I'm sure the average Japanese citizen could care less about those 3rd world countries.

Happiness or despair. There is only one way to find out and it would require a large study group.

Ridiculous keystone cop scenario. Terminate his employment. How can you use a toilet and walk out and not feel that you are lighter. In the USA someone would have taken those items and sold them on the black market.

Posted in: Tech stars quit Silicon Valley as politics, pandemic weigh See in context

My daughter moved to England. My younger son moved north of Seattle. My older son is moving to Florida. I'm moving up to Washington State because California has become incredibly complicated and there's no way you can live here and pay an employee at starbucks $15 an hour and expect them to be able to live in this area unless they live in a ghetto. It's totally out-of-control. I would move to Austin Texas or Seattle in a heartbeat. My rent in a 1 bedroom apartment is almost a home mortgage in another state. No way jose.

Truly sad that at his age he did not want to continue his life. We need to watch our friends, family and children for signs of distress. Life is special and only available for a short time so don't waste it. RIP young man.

They committed the crime in Japan and outside as well. They planned the crime outside and inside Japan. Why is this a question of who has the ball in their court.

Too bad. I especially love Fuji apples and my late J-wife was an excellent pastry chef. She made strudel or an old fashioned apple pie lightly dusted with cinnamon powder and confectionary sugar with a hot cup of black tea, yum, yum. Hope they find the thieves and make them peel every apple in the jail's kitchen.

Posted in: Finding relief from sleepless nights amid pandemic See in context

I've been unemployed for months, stressed out and can't sleep. I am an insomniac and for a sleep aid I use CBD gummies. They do the trick and they are legal in the USA but why not in Japan? Better than drinking alcohol until you pass out, no hangover and you basically can't die from an overdose either. Japan needs to wake up to the needs of it's population and promote sleep enhancing medicines because everyone is so stressed out and needs relief.

I can not imagine walking down the street and getting hit and dying from some idiot jumping onto the street below. What a waste of two lives. If you want to terminate your life, please consider how to to do it, the consequences and how your death and means will impact others. Not to be mean but people that commit suicide are definitely in need of therapy but don't take others with you if you decide to end yours.

Love this photograph. I have many of my daughter during the girl's day celebrations in Japan that were also celebrated here in the USA that look similar. Its nice that children can enjoy their cultural heritage and are safe enough to walk around their neighborhoods and enjoy their lives.

Please give that child up for adoption and not throwing away a life. That child could have been a parent or a person who made the world a better place. Life is precious dont waste it selficiouciily to satisfy your personal needs and where is the father? Sad story.

Posted in: Japanese manners debate: Is it OK to tell your coworkers 'I’ve found a new job?' See in context

I do not think it is proper to announce to your co-workers that you are leaving for a better job. What message does that send to the company and it's employees? It is better for that employee's manager to announce the departure unless that person was terminated and have a going away party in some izakaya.

Office culture is of course different all over the world but any company's biggest asset is not the product but the people who support the product and wake up each morning excited to go to work and like their management IMHO.

Posted in: Judo in Japan getting unwanted scrutiny for abuse, violence See in context

I learned Judo in the 1960's from a French Judo sensei who was a world class Judo master and have only had to use my skills once. When I was out on the town with my late j-wife in Shizuoka we were walking home and came upon a bar where a guy was tearing it up. I went into Judo mode and put him out on the street, pinned him down and called the cops who were surprised that a gaijin nailed this guy. It's amazing that your basic instincts kick in when necessary.

Is Trump clinically able to be the president of the United states? Personally I am very uncomfortable with what is going on with Trump, Corona virus and all the etceteras. Makes me want to store all my stuff in a shipping container, liquidate all my assets and buy a casita in Costa Rica.

My late j-wife and I gave our son and daughter traditional Japanese given names. Personally I dislike all the unconventional spelling for unusual names but I am old school and I am not going to change and hopefully others will understand my ideas, good or bad in their opinions.
