Posted in: Trees could cut urban heatwave mortality by a third: study See in context

Trees aren't as great as it sound. At least not here. It attract all kind of insects, pollen and the leaves. Just the bees alone is something you don't want. First off, the cost for the upkeep of the trees aren't cheap and it also need nurturing like a constant water source etc. Secondly the roots are a very problematic thing and you have to carefully plan where to plant them. Just think of the power lines and other stuff that are underground. Thirdly during storms or harsh weather, these trees can be a complete danger for people.

Sure, i would like see more trees in parks inside cities, but we shouldn't go overboard. All i am saying it ain't as awesome as people claim when it comes to having a lot trees in the cities. The main problem is always the money needed to maintain it.

Of course he wouldn't understand. A morally corrupt person like him who only understand money and has no soul, would never understand why we are standing with Ukraine and not with Russia.

If they are doing so well, i don't understand why they are gutting the animation projects left and right. And who in their right mind would subscribe and pay money to watch the Harry & Megan show?

I am glad Universal Studios is trying to expand so much and rising in recent years to compete with Disney. For too long Disney have enjoy their dominance that they have grown to become extremely greedy and charge ridiculous prices on their fans. More competitions between them means better offers and choices for consumers.

I am not sure if delaying things is gonna help anyway. What if government say they will delay it for a day. Technically they did listen to these nations urging then.

Lol. If the owner merely wishes for it to return to their hands i might sympathize, but to demand hundred of millions because they are getting greedy is the worse. They ain't getting it back.

Well, if you dare to ram a police car, then you deserve to be fire upon. Police risk their life everyday, but that doesn't mean they have to throw their lives away for people who are criminals.

I though she was suffering from depression? Is this really a good time to be a mom? And i don't think she will ever able to return to her peak in tennis anyway in 2024. Her tennis professional days are over. She should just enjoy life considering she made tons of money already to never worry about work.

Posted in: Man dies after being shot outside residence in Saitama Prefecture See in context

@mammamia, who are you kidding? Which country have you even been to and understand their crime rate so well, that you claim killers shouldn't able to escape so mysteriously? It doesn't matter if you live on a island or on land. Any killer can easily hide within the city itself and blend with the crowed with proper planning. I think you are just watching way too many police series and think is that easy for the police to catch someone on the first day.

Posted in: Japan's 'anti-Russian course' makes treaty talks impossible: TASS See in context

To be fair, those so call peace talks was never gonna go anywhere anyway. Even if they hadn't attack Ukraine. Is not like they are gonna give us back the islands. So nothing was lost when they withdrew from the talks. And let's not forget they have been moving troops there constantly every year for military drills. So it's not like they ever made any effort for working toward peace anyway.

2023 is the year of recession for many countries. Along with a economic slowdown and higher living cost. Companies will soon start cutting jobs. Anyone who knows a bit about economic knows that the interest rate hikes is a slow process that takes a lot of months before the effects are felt. The consequence of the interest hikes is gonna hit a lot of countries in 2023.

Posted in: China sends 71 warplanes, 7 ships toward Taiwan in 24 hours See in context

Weird timing considering they are currently fighting a huge covid wave. Maybe they did this to shift focus of the public away from the dire covid situation. Whenever a crisis hit, polititian are prone to seek some kind of outside threat/conflict to shift focus and criticism away from the government.

Posted in: Packed ICUs, crowded crematoriums: COVID overwhelms Chinese towns See in context

This has happen to every country anyway during their peak waves. Even here had happen when we suddenly experience a huge infection wave and all hospitals were full and near breaking point. China just gonna have accept it and let the infection run it's course like the rest of the world. If even India had manage to recover from their peak wave, then i don't see why the whole world is so suddenly concern about China. Is not like this is any big news or anything that we haven't witness or experience.

Posted in: Quarter of trainees in Japan told to return home if pregnant: survey See in context

To be fair, the government allow you into the country for the trainee program to work and not for them to have babies to complicate the whole working visa. And the whole point of foreign workers entering is to find a better paying job than their own country and send the money back. So how is it fair if you come here and get pregnant and expect the company to take on the burden? This isn' exactly a vacation. Can't they use protection and wait till they return home to start a family? It might sound cruel, but i don't see why they can't be a bit more responsible too.

Posted in: Japan's manpower-light defense strategy a flawed 'paper plan', officers say See in context

No, i think is a good plan. Quality over quantity. The officers are confuse. This isn't about the army expanding for aggressive attacks. This is increasing the national defense. Increasing numbers of troops is not a good sign when it comes to self defense. Never again will we ever take part in wars. The US can forget about if they think they can drag us to a war.

Not to mention the current self defense troops lacks a lot of things. The pay is terrible and there is not a lot of family support. Government should instead focus on all these aspect before ever thinking of having more troops. Currently most of the self defense force are not even fully equip with all the necessary gears.

What she need is medical help. Way too young to end your life like that.

Plus the hotel probably drop the charges to avoid having to deal with all of this. And in case there is no compensation demanded out of her, the insurance will probably cover it.
