Trump is asking for more money from Japan and renegotiation of the treaty. Sending minions are perfect.

Posted in: Cows in Fukushima radiation zone find new purpose: science See in context

The team worries that the study results could spark overly broad fears that the region will no longer be habitable or fit for agriculture.

That presumption will affect the research outcome.

Posted in: Pokemon Go fans brave heat See in context

How much is sure that they are playing Pokemon? People might be updating to social media, twitter, chatting etc. This must be usual for smartphone users, specially when they are on vacation.

Posted in: Consumer prices, household spending fall in March See in context

I guess it is counter act by consumers on the counter act of Govt. Eventually tax rise by 4% did not help, so will extra 3%? OR who knows the figures are plain lies. Huh?

Posted in: Divorce among elderly couples surging See in context

I think somewhere "MONEY" /finance is also a key factor. Less than needed or more than expense is bad for marriage. Having the right amount should help to make the bond stronger.

Posted in: Man, under arrest for eating without paying, dies in detention See in context

If I were the Police investigating this so called crime I would have given the innkeeper the 500 yen and sent this old man on his way its possible this old man was broke. In other countries the police might be hailed as hero but Japanese does not work like that. When someone files the complain, the police will be never above the law to judge, no mater what the degree of crime.

Posted in: New icon for Buddhist temples proposed See in context

The Buddhist temple "sign" is as authentic as the world heritage sites. I am sure in coming years they will change it back. Its all about budget and spending propaganda.

title: "Anti-U.S. base candidate loses Ginowan mayoral election"

YET the candidate who won will ease-out the US base relocation project. LOL so if the winning candidate supports US base than why futenma is moving out? pathetic title. I think Sakima won because he did lots of thing for Ginowan city specially for children.

Posted in: Debate on separate spouse surnames heats up before court ruling See in context

its an interesting question / law. So women will change her surname everytime she divorce/remarries. I am guessing next problem /lawsuit will be regarding children surname (what if a woman wants to have her kids surname after her)

Why only two option? Both locations are inside Okinawa "article says: But many residents want the base moved out of the prefecture and have picketed the area..."
