Posted in: Drunk droning arrest first of its kind in Aichi Prefecture See in context

This man reminds me of a friend who would start drinking even early in the morning.

I remember being in Hawaii as I was having breakfast and drinking coffee, he appears in the kitchen area with a beer in his hand. He could drink, a lot. If I had been drinking like him, I'd been dead a long time ago.

Posted in: Eyes on the goal: Women's soccer goes pro in Japan See in context

I have coached teams in USA and know what is required to get to the top.

USA football program is the Gold standard.

When I go to the Health club, I see High school and Collage athletes' come in fully fit and workout a few hours with no smartphones' and go back back. This is in addition to whatever exercise they do at School and Collage.

It's called Dedication.

In USA, football is played from kindergarten to Collage.

A program is in place.

Setting up a League is one thing but will the players have the time to workout to strengthen, also work with coaches on drills?

If the Japan work requires these women to work endless hours and no time for play, then it's a thankless task.

I would like to coach and also setup a program like in USA where we breed players from a young age and progress.

I have a Mercedes Benz sports car. I have enjoyed the quality it has including the safety features and I would not want to drive any thing else. It's Mercedes Benz or Nothing!

I have it for 20 years and still feels new.

Please excuse italics as I had no control over it.

Posted in: New York or Los Angeles? Where you live says a lot about what and when you tweet See in context

What a waste of an article.

You do not judge cities by tweets.

You have to live there to know the places and attitudes.

A lot of people do not use tweet or some other social media as we have a life in California.

"Devil's advocate here: What if his mother DID cause the burns herself? What proof have the police got on this guy?"

Burn marks. If the same person burns the legs, they would be different from someone else burning the legs.

I hope the sentencing for abuse of elderly and children is long term and not just a slap on the wrist. I just cannot imagine what goes in the minds of these criminals.

I hope the older lady recovers soon.

Posted in: Tokyo falls to world's 4th most expensive city for expats: survey See in context

Housing, Accommodation, Utilities, Taxation and computes to work timewise are the main cost of living factors. Eating out everyday can be expensive. learn to cook at home and eat out sometimes.

Clothes, etc. depends on your taste. Want all designer clothes? Of course expensive.

Car? If you don't need one, can save on gasoline costs too.

So, it all adds up.

Posted in: Is tax avoidance ethical? Asking on behalf of a few billionaire friends See in context

Taxation laws in USA are created by the rich and the corporations for themselves and not serve the everyday Americans. There are enough loop holes created for the rich and the corporations to not pay any or little taxes.

Corporation and taxes for rich can be very high but it does not matter as they do not pay it. It's meaningless.

Posted in: Mexico says COVID-19 has affected a fourth of its population See in context

Have been to Mexico twice during the pandemic for dental implants.

One think that I noticed on the streets, majority of the population did NOT wear the mask or the mask was just covering their chin and not the mouth and the nose. I would say that only about 10% were wearing the masks properly. Social distancing?? What is that?

Though bars and strip clubs were officially closed, you could go up the stairs and everything was going on full contact without any masks.

Doing the simple things like wearing the mask properly in public places and streets could have reduced the number of infections.

I said at the time that Mexico was a dangerous country to visit and it shows in the number of infections.

Posted in: Actress Kyoko Fukada diagnosed with adjustment disorder See in context

Japan being a Conforming Society is the reason behind highest Suicides and Adjustment Disorder.

My parents passed away when I was in High School and left with nothing, including money. I had to make massive changes in my life from a very young age. Not only that, Being born in Africa, left penniless in Europe and then continued life in USA after working and working and studying in Europe to graduate.

I fell down so many times and got up, that it would take 3 thick books to write the story of my life.

Many different cultures I came across and huge learning curves.

I am thankful for what I have as life could be worse.

Be humble as I know the value of money as I had none.

One of the billionaire of Berkshire Hathaway investment group said to enjoy life and longevity, Keep expectations low because you will not feel too bad if things did not work out as expected. If you want more and more, possessions will posses you.
