Its rather distracting.

This is a law!??! Why? I sat like this for hours like for weddings and funerals.

Legs hurt after but that’s normal. Sounds like some teacher over did it and the snow flakes got offended.

Schools are underfunded. Teachers are overworked and inadequately educated.

I would said funding and support for disabled students has gotten much better in the last 3 years...

Well say! releasing a new product every year with little to no improvement is terrible.

Just release a product when its finished and treat the engineers with respect!

The government really needs to stop playing around with the survey and really makes laws. No more encouraging or passing the buck to other people.

Enforcing a limit on overtime hours by creating a GOVERNMENT SET overtime pay-rate with exponential figures that force the company to have employees to leave on-time. With outrageously set fines for braking the law. Which they are already doing..

Forcing employees to take their all their paid holiday days with set fines if disobeyed.

It all sounds crazy but I really need people to make some babies... otherwise I'm not gonna going to get a pension.. I'm tired of digging graves for all the old people that couldn't create a stable society for future generations to live in.

The hotel had no sprinkler system and been warned about lax anti-fire prevention measures in at least eight areas the year before, fire department officials said.

Interesting ... Makes me wonder if they were warned the year before and every other year for the last 10 years.

Posted in: Bill submitted to lower voting age to 18 See in context

Even if this bill passes, I highly doubt that they're going to vote... Even if they did, it would most likely be influenced by twitter...

If they really wanted to up the amount of voters they should try improving the educational system first so people understand why they vote and have an opinion about it.

Of course, they could always just give away free umaibō and everyone would come flocking.

Police and the fire department said that during the nine minutes, there were no fires or accidents requiring emergency medical services.

That's because they didn't get any phone calls....

This is what happens when the government doesn't ask the opinion of engineers that knows what they are doing...

Unfortunate is type of thing seems to happen too much in Japan.

Love the Government, The spend a ton of money on a survey, then tell the school to improve... But then the Government doesn't give the boards of education any money to do anything about it. Why isn't there any money? Because they spent it all on the survey.

I really do hope that these school can receive some extra funding to improve... That being say... Many of these school are most likely in places there are no kids to begin with...

Accidents happen but we can't blame the under trained teachers.

We need to blame the government for overworking teachers and not providing training, regulation and funding to create a safe environment.

The food should be donated to a food bank. An NPO called Second Harvest is already doing just that in Ueno.

This is the same country that I trust will help with the growing older population...

I really love Japan but with the collection of all these problems it just shows how the government really has not idea what it's doing.... Te government is trying to run the country as it was 20 years ago. As many new politicians try to fix all the problems their are held back by all their superiors...

Japan needs to first fix its education system to create people that know what their doing and that know how to think with creativity.

I think all these problems had just been cause by a failing education system that has created genarations of non-thing drones.

Get out of Japan before you get sucked in

I just don't like the idea that someone can just come in and tell me what I can and can not eat. There has to be a happy middle ground... But I'm guessing that even if Japan was willing to lower it's numbers to half or even a quarte of the quota ... SS would still be complaining.

It dosesnt sound very fair... Trying to force their ideas on people or throwing flares at them...
