Posted in: Kyoto schoolgirl loses lawsuit against bullies for causing her mental illness See in context

When I moved to a new school I was picked on by a few of my classmates. Punching somebody in the head did not solve my issue but only made it worse. I have found that it is a tactic that does not work as it results in the desired "bite". And those that say violence solved their issue are lying and were not bullied but were the bullies. You are better to ignore the bullies and report it to a parent or Teacher as soon as possible.

Change "you" learn some manners be polite LOL at peoples jokes and compliment them when they do something greatish... then you will not be bullied.

Well It is a hard choice the school makes to be pro-Pyongyang

A 2014 UN inquiry into abuses of human rights in North Korea concluded that, "the gravity, scale and nature of these violations reveal a state that does not have any parallel in the contemporary world

If they want any kind of support they need to sever any association with the DPRK / Chongryon If not then Japanese Government should not offer them any support in anyway.

I do not believe the opinion is political or discriminatory in any way. The DPRK are criminals and should not be supported by anybody under any situation except in support of human rights.

Might find it doesn't change much considering the rate of infection in Japan has a pretty steady daily rate of around 200 per 4-6 thousand people (tested). Japan is not considered a safe place to travel.

I don't think any of these countries Australia, Brunei, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam will allow any of their citizens to travel back from Japan without an additional 2 week stay in quarantine on their return.

It might be a crime to enter, but not to leave.

It is a crime to leave Japan without doing the proper paperwork.

So what these 'travel agents' did isn't actually illegal?

It certainly was illegal and they actually committed multiple crimes under several different Acts of Japanese law including aiding and abetting a crime as it is illegal to help somebody leave the country without using a passport, Smuggling and or Human Trafficking and there are other crimes that can be used as well. I think it is a total of about 3 years in jail and a fine.

Posted in: Suga says plan to release Fukushima water coming soon See in context

@Do the hustle Unfortunately, tritium is not the only isotope in the water.

Yes I realise that following is what I said before:

they know there is large traces of tritium and other radioactive substance

I should have added after filtering out the other isotopes then release the water.

Posted in: Suga says plan to release Fukushima water coming soon See in context

As far as I am concerned they know there is large traces of tritium and other radioactive substances in the contaminated water they want to release they need to add another 1000+ storage containers and keep storing it.

Tritium is a radioactive element with a half-life of 12.32 years that decays into helium by beta-decay.

So 25 years storage should do the job then capture the helium and sell it then release the water.

What ever happened to Innocent until proven guilty?

Perhaps they should lock up the "whistle blowers" for four months and see if they keep saying what they said is true, While interviewing them everyday and telling them to admit they lied or stay for longer.

Posted in: Woman arrested for attempted murder of ex-husband See in context

People can only take so much before they break. Pity there isn't more being done by the government to help with these kind of things before it turns ugly. Suga should make Fostering a sense of Japanese unity and social stability and strengthening the emphasis on the family systems his priority over Restoring national defense rights and Strengthening Japanese defense power.

I would like to see more adverts on tv and social media etc offering services of help for those depressed and those being abused give them a number to call and actually have action taken before it turns to issues like this.

Well get your money back while you still have a chance. I know I will not go (got my money back) and I will not watch(as I don't have NHK). Plus with Japan's continued whaling, continued hostage justice system I am boycotting 2020+1 olympics.

Posted in: Suga, Abe attend memorial for father of N Korea abductee Megumi Yokota See in context

I don't know why this continues to be something the Government continue to push on with. North Korea say it is resolved, They told who died, they returned those that were alive, and told who didn't make it to North Korea. And we know they won't be able to provide bones as they most likely in mass graves or buried at sea.

With the previous reaction and outcry from Japan causing sanctions etc against NK when they admitted to the abduction of 13 people, they will not repeat that mistake again meaning they will not admit to any further abductees in fear of risking new sanctions.

It has a lot to do with the "Japanese mentality" it is why people who get corona get ostracized, It is why out of work husbands kill their wives and mother in laws and why young japanese kill their other family members. something is totally wrong with they way people speak to those who are depressed. a person can only take so much verbal abuse.

Posted in: 76-year-old man arrested for fatally stabbing neighbor in Osaka See in context

Oi has admitted to the charge. He was quoted as saying there had been bad blood between Inami and himself but he denied any intent to kill. Let me see Oi went to Inami's apartment with a knife and had no intent to kill him!! Ok he just wanted to say look I have a knife lets talk.

Where in the story does it say he bought the knife with him? You are guessing please wait for more facts.

For all you know the 66 year old neighbour could have been cooking and playing loud music they other guy went over to complain saw the knife grabbed it and stabbed him...
