It amazes me what an angry wife will do. She should be done for reporting a false crime.

Posted in: Royal funeral offers chance for William, Harry to reconcile See in context

Harry’s wife thinks his family is racist. I don’t see how they can reconcile from a slander like that absent a full retraction and apology.

Well Idling asking what color do you think the baby will be.

This is racist the color of the baby should never have even been a thought.

Health, having all fingers and toes, and not having stick out ears like his father should have been the only concerns they had.

@zichi

I don't agree the governor of Hyogo is well liked. Toshizō Ido (井戸 敏三, Ido Toshizō, born 10 August 1945) governor of Hyōgo Prefecture, since 2001.

Yes like a grandfather who with this obvious blunder seems to have reached senility Born 1945 time to retire or be voted out many people I know have voiced the same opinion.

last shot April 3rd hasn't even been the required 2 weeks for the final shot to boost the immune system. Guess he felt he was immune and went out eating and drinking after 8pm (because we all know this is when the virus is active) even though he still had to wait 2 weeks after the last vaccine. Administering Nurse probably told him he was safe.

@ReasonandWisdomNippon

Have you read stories of women doing this? Stealing men underwear for sexual pleasure? No

Not read but a female stalker I had 10 odd years ago was stealing my underwear and shirts out of my house while i was at work and also doing other things on my bed. She only got caught by nanny cam.

He can have a pair of my wifes old shoes if he wants to replace them for her.

Save me having to buy new shoes for her every 6 months...

Why didn't he just advertise online for used women's shoes and pay 1000 yen + sending fee.

Would have been cheaper in the long run.

Posted in: Gov't to release Fukushima nuclear plant water into sea despite fishermen's objection See in context

@bokuda

other reports that state that the water is not properly treated, has more dangerous radioactive isotopes than it should.

I have read this or watched it somewhere as well and also the amount of Tritium is actually twice to three times in some containers than what is being reported, Even around the area regarded as safe still has hot spots of high levels of radiation that locals avoid and the locals are doing a lot of their own testing and it shows that the governments data contradicts the data they have collected. (which is why they are gathering their own data).

The IAEA has backed the Japanese government's plan to dispose of the water, saying releasing it into the sea meets global standards of practice in the nuclear industry.

Apparently their decision is based on information provided by the untrustable source of Tepco.

If the data is true and accurate then Japan should be open to allowing it to be tested by independent foreign organisation where they take it from the containers and prevent it from being switched before it is tested.

I see we have now learnt that you can only fudge the numbers and refuse to test for so long before it starts to get completely out of hand where so many people are infected that you start having more and more worse case scenarios and new worlds first operations.

Posted in: Suga to meet fishing industry chief over nuclear waste water disposal See in context

@nandakandamanda

what do you suggest Tepco (and Suga) should be doing?

They should be removing the H20 via filtered drying and disposing of the remaining chemicals and toxins in a safe way.

The only reason they want to release it into the ocean is because it is the least expensive option.

Posted in: Suga to meet fishing industry chief over nuclear waste water disposal See in context

I hope the fisheries stick to their guns as far as I am concerned our family will stop eating Japanese fish if it is released into the ocean. I have already found a safe alternative from outside of Japan.

Posted in: China says carrier group drills near Taiwan will become regular See in context

@HimariYamada

You may be unaware Japan already has a strong military disguised as A self defence force which is 1% of the population so about 1.2 million personal.

I will try to answer your questions:

How will Japan send troops to Taiwan

They could use any number of the 60+ troop transporter aircraft they currently have and/or some of the landing craft they have.

Does Japan have aircraft carriers?

Currently no but several have been ordered. Considering how close Taiwan is from Japan you could say that there is a massive one nearby.

Does Japan have amphibious assault ships?

Yes there are 3 or 4 of them.

Does Japan have a peace constitution?

Yes Japan does it says that

Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes.

In order to accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.

Which does not prevent Japan from retaining a force for self defence or for use in the defence of an ally.

So even if I don't agree with the article using their names, we don't really know if the writer and they agreed on doing so

We know they didn't agree as it was done "without their consent"

a photo of an envelope showing the pair's names and postal address,

This brings to mind the Letter of Markle to her father over copyright and it was determined that copyrights of letters are owned by the writer not the receiver So putting a picture of writing from, inside or outside the letter would be a breach of copyright laws?

Posted in: Kelly's trial increasingly focusing on Nissan-Renault rift See in context

The remuneration in question was not executive compensation, It was planned to reward Ghosn for his services to Nissan after his retirement, Also the former Nissan CEO Saikawa said "compensation for his predecessor Carlos Ghosn was too low "by international standards," and so he supported Ghosn's retirement packages to prevent him from leaving."

Saikawa also told the court that he signed several draft documents on remuneration packages for Ghosn, including retirement pay, consultant fees and a non-compete agreement to prevent him from moving to a competition.

So who signed off on the deals Saikawa did not Kelly.

Posted in: Indictment dropped against 17-year-old boy whose suicide leap killed woman See in context

Police initially sent papers on the boy to prosecutors, charging him with manslaughter

Of course they wont charge him since they can't interrogate him and recharge him multiple times so they can't get a confession. they gotta maintain that 99% conviction rate

.I hope the girls parents can sue the parents of the idiot boy

Would be a hard win if police are not going to prosecute.

I am a foreigner and I wear a mask when i go indoors, I live in an area where I rarely see any other foreigners (that could be because I don't move around much from my safety bubble) and all of those I have seen wear masks indoors as well.

The most people I have seen not wearing a mask have been older Japanese males. And I don't care I just will not shop at a store which allows them in I go somewhere else or I will wait till they are done.
