Posted in: Court turns down suit by residents to block restart of Takahama reactors See in context

So I guess previous reports in the news are incorrect. The towns people don't have a choice on the building/restart of nuclear power plants.

Posted in: Low voter turnout could erode Abe's call for fresh mandate See in context

I don't believe 65% are interested in the election in December. So far, based on my polls, 100% of the people I asked think snap election is not necessary and not interested. But then again look at the news source in this article............Yomiyuri.

Interesting. I search other news sources on this incident and every news source I found has the exact same article, word for word. Talk about controlling the media! Seems like one one person is reporting the news to every news source.

Seriously people, stop using your cellphone while on the move. Some idiot texting or playing a game, on a bicycle almost ran over my dog. I almost snapped my dog's neck pulling him out of the way. The jerk just looked up for a second like I had done something wrong and continued on his merry way. Well, the nice guy in me is seriously being challenged and really don't know how many more near misses I can take. So to you Ill mannered pedestrian beware. Don't expect me to jump out of your way anymore.

When will they learn. The only way the manager at the cafe my wife works at can take a day off is when he checks himself into a hospital. The company knows this but really doesn't care. They always have a manager on backup. My wife has been offer the position and she just laugh at them and of course said no thanks.

Joshu, I'm with you. These guys (and gals?) have basically signed a death warrant to clean up Government Control TEPCO's mess. I can on.y hope and pray that they and their families will be well taken care of. Appreciation and prayers out to all working to clean up the mess.

Do these guys ever visit the "temporary" housing complexes? Perhaps they should take up residence there this winter. Perhaps things will move faster.

Posted in: Abe names replacements for trade, justice ministers See in context

If you ask me, the women didn't fail in their positions. Remember it was Abe who put them there, so, I would have to question his ability to lead his party. His decision making skills are obviously not up to par when it goes to appoint people into a position.

Who needs a TV in a hotel? Couples don't wacth it, kids have their games and the rest have smartphones and iPads. Don't give In to NHK. Remove the TVs.

Based on my experience here, doctors don't pronounce soon because in many cases, they allow the family to get finances in order. Once a person is pronounce dead, the bank accounts get locked.

Why does it seem like Japanese companies prefer to spend billions on fixing problems instead of thousands to prevent them? My previous employer was like that. I would bring up a potential problem which would take half a day to fix. He yells at me ans says "stop wasting money and time and do your job!" Two days later we're working late for two weeks to fix the problem.

titaniumdioxide: why don't you go to Fukushima with a sign with the exact words and stand in front of the hospital treating all the children with thyroid cancer, then march to the temp housing area where thousands of people have been living in housing that is falling apart. Finally off to the fishing villages where people have lost their lively hood because the Pacific Ocean is too polluted to fish in. If all goes well, I'm on your side.

Posted in: Man arrested for taking 'normal' picture of woman on train See in context

Geoff, I have to agree with the law. If someone you have never met started taking pictures of you for no particular reason, wouldn't you feel a bit uneasy? How does the person plan to use YOUR photo? Identity theft? Frame your for something? Who knows? It's just creepy!
