Construction of Terminal #2 "that far" seems unnecessary. It does not make any sense when you have to come to terminal #1 for everything except restroom. Everything includes transit, trains, bus, better restaurant, even plane take off / landing.

Freedom of expression? Bullying and making mockery of someone's god? LOL. I went through those cartoons and I think as a civilized human we must try to respect each others culture and religion, things will become much better. "I am not defending the killings, they should be hanged till the last breath". BTW I am Buddhist and this is what I want to express.

In September, the company widened its annual net loss forecast to 230 billion yen from 50 billion yen

I wonder if the Yen vs U$D played some factor?

BOJ Gov Kuroda urges firms to raise wages, spending

I hope he is referring to big corporates who are enjoying this cash out. Small and medium sized businesses are having -ve effect by BOJ's goal. Since they have less import power plus their customers are spending lesser.

I wonder what promoted the ministry to randomly start testing again?

May be due to the recent Avian flu (H5N8) findings at UK farm I guess. They culled about 6000 ducks.

@SFJ330 Constant whining from Japan. Close down all of U.S. military bases in Japan and save the money. U.S. has to reduce spending somewhere and paying for the Defense of Japan is a good place to start cutting spending...

Please research before you speak non-sense like this. Japanese govt pays for all the on/base housing building plus maintenance. J govt pays for all the J-employes working on base. J-govt pays for on/off base electricity bills, gas bills. This is not the end they build schools for US military kids, U.S military recreational center (ex.Okuma, golf course etc). I don't to put all the links just google it and you will find endless list. U.S. govt spending will go higher if military leaves Japan.

So downgrade middle class family to poor and poor class to poorer. Rich will not do good either as people will stop spending a lot and will hurt their business (means more job scarcity). I doubt that this will boost Japanese economy curve but sure will boost -ve population curve. Go ahead and put Japan in #5th (skipping #4)

Osaka (2010), I was in 22nd floor izakaya. They had old, beat-up, heavy tablet with touch screen menu. No need to call wait staff, just browse through the menu and order. I was surprised to see it there because Apple had just released ipad 1st gen. looking at the condition of that tablet, it looks like they've been using it for last 2-3yrs.

Seems like perfect area to reloacte marines from Futenma instead of Oura bay at Nago, Okinawa. Only 379 residents to satisfy. Just saying
