Mistakes were made. But let us help others to move on. Just watching what a genuine effort Cyndi is doing with her music. Also,just checked another rap song from another artist. Check Yomigaere on youtube. Lovely words.

Posted in: French ban on Islamic veils put into force See in context

I love it how we become selective in adopting certain things and rebel against other things when we are in a host country. We only want to take, take and take. Not give. Yes, the forefathers of the French colonized etc etc. In what way does that justifiable that the other French people pay for it with their health and everything. There should have been a better more balanced way to compensate.

Was pretty amazed how the young immigrants from many parts of the world have adopted well to the French way of doing things. But then what put me off is that they litter the public places because there is someone to clean it. It was such an ugly sight to see a young beautiful well dressed immigrant woman eating gum and throwing it in the train floor right in front of many nationalities. So she adopted the fashion and dressing habits of the French and refuses the "be clean" habit of the French?

WilliB.

I was in Iran, Azerbaijan and Dubai for a short time for work. Do you know what? I saw some amazing rebellious spirit from the native women. A couple, in their 50s invited me to join them for coffee and "some drinks" to their home. I only met them on the street and asked them directions. Then there were other younger women, who were willing to join the group of foreigners to do fun things like drinking and dancing. In a way, I am waiting for the day that they will rise above the religious fanatics.

My mother met an islam lady doctor, who confided in her about how she has to live her life, first under her father's control and now under her husband's control. She is going to break loose one day too.

Cannot forget the incident when a friend and I walked out of a restaurant where there were two women in burqas. The burqas were very beautiful. But every time the women lifted it to put a morsel of food just made me loose my appetite. Not sure if I reacted the wrong way, but I could not stand it anymore.

It is very nice when one keeps his/her religious belief close to one;s own heart. Faith, religion etc should be very personal. Not to be openly exhibited or forced upon our neighbors. Are the children asked if they really would like to dress in the attire of their tradition, religion etc. Might be interesting to do a survey on young adults of these communities if it is their desire or some other factor for them to dress in that way.

What a beautiful moment captured. I think the posters here have to be more kind 'cos you do not seem to understand the depth of the psychological impact this disaster has brought to the people. In fact, even the posters need to take your mind out of this whole thing because unawares to you, you also have been shaken.

I am writing from Tokyo. There is no food shortage. The stores have everything that you need. Just don't listen to what others are saying. Or if you are in a remote place, and assuming things, then please refrain from scare-mongering. For anyone sincerely in need, I really can send you the grocery stuff that you need. The toilet tissue scarcity was an artificial one. Some older people just remembered their past experience and started creating a havoc. I even saw a man taking a bunch of serviettes from the McD's tissue dispenser and stuffed it into his bag. Mind you, he was having one of the most expensive burger set meal!!

It was for globalwatcher. He posted in another thread the message from the US Embassy. And to see he has sent his emergency pkg weighing 110kg to Tokyo and he says he is landing in Tokyo.

Posted in: Eastwood, Bullock each donate $1 million to earthquake relief See in context

The monetary value does not matter. It is the willingness to help. So does not matter even if it is a 100 yen. There were some very old citizens near my station, bearing the cold and collecting donations and distributing info on the disaster. It was heart-warming to see them smile when someone contributed. All those preaching about love using some religious organization's name can learn from this. This is not the time to preach. This is the time to act.

This professor from Honk Kong should do a research on the 2004 Tsunami rebuilding and reconstruction before he starts making baseless claims.This is Japan, and not some underdeveloped South Asian island. About the people not wanting to go back to their original places- is he kidding? It will be hard to move them out of their original places of residence. We are talking about Japanese people here. If he wants to know I can give an example of a real incident.

I was on relief work at a tsunami hit part of Sri Lanka- 7 days after the incident. I saw an elderly lady sitting with an oil lamp among rubble. I asked her what she was doing. She said that from what she knows, that is where her house was located and she does not want anybody to claim it so she was guarding it. Mind you, the dwellers were living within 100meter inland from the sea coast. The housing is huts made with clay and woven coconut palms.

Thanks for leaving Anderson Cooper. Thanks for creating the rumor that workers at the troubled plant was leaving. I can imagine what treatment he would have received from the J-authorities. Hope at least he will drop a 1000 yen note as donation. He can do it at the local combini or at the airport. What a waste of fuel from these CNN crowd. Have more respect for Paris Hilton than these 'yadayadayada' crowd.

Do you remember Banda Aceh after the tsunami? The destruction was BAD there too. But they have rebuilt. This place will be rebuilt and will be much beter than what it was I am sure.

Professionalism with CNN? No way. Scavengers who feed on the dead carcasses. Th money sharks, some reporters and journalists network well to create chaos; this is their bread and money. Sanjay Gupta (reporting from Fukushima?), Anderson cooper and wonder why Amanpour Christina is not here -does that ring a bell anyone?

I have signed with Red cross Japan too. They wil soon update the English info they said. You don;t need to be experts to help in some areas. Sometimes, just helping out with cleaning, cooking in the shelters and just being there with the people helps so much. There are psychosocial issues as sfjp says.

Chris Hutchison should first check the information before he starts behaving like a kindergarten kid. No area gets two outages. He needs to first check carefully, his area falls into which time period in Group 1. Oh goodness, how irresponsible can you be? The group one has two outages for the different areas!

Thanks Carchardon for spotting such rumor mongers. And if BBC wants they can check it for themselves.

Make your own flat bread in the fry pan. Please don't complain. Flour oil and yeast or baking powder. Tastier and healthier.

METinTokyo, pachinko parlors are definitely much better distraction than others. I have also begun to look at the positive side of them. I know a few nice people working in big companies going to them. It seems much more innocent than the many deceitful, self destroying distractions.

Sarge, of all people you are getting very anxious now. Ask your boss if you can do work from home. And about not finding bread etc, be creative. Make all sorts of flat breads in fry pan , with yeast, baking powder, etc.

When I read the first line, I understood that he is guilty of something. Very smoothly the author directs all the blame on others but not him. I will listen to his lamenting, if he had worked as a taxi driver in his own country and served a few foreigners. Did the author scare the taxi driver with his attitude or something. I've only had positive experiences with Tokyo cabbies.
