Posted in: Foreigners fleeing conflict zones to be eligible for Japan long-term residency from Dec 1 See in context

Japan wants nursing home labourers farm labourers, construction labourers, factory labourers and highly skilled IT professionals.

Not entrepreneurs, doctors, journalists, town planners or social workers.

Posted in: Protesters disrupt U.S. Open semifinal See in context

Finally the sane members of public are no longer tolerating this fiasco.

Throughout Europe drivers have started bodyslamming the obstructors.

Without fossil fuels they will die.

The placards they’re holding , the clothes they’re wearing are all made using fossil fuels.

The hair dyes, The jewellery. The smartphones in their pockets.

It exists because of fossil fuel.

It’s just another cult for displaced millennials.

Call it what it is. Rape.

Her bruises will take a week to recover?

No. She will probably never recover from her emotional bruising.

They either forget that part or it never entered the equation.

She’s only one of the 10% of women in Japan who actually report sexual assault.

He’ll probably get a slap on the wrist.

What about the thousands of females molested on trains everyday. Sexual harassment at work. Kiddie porn anime on kombini shelves.

Females having to speak a formal submissive dialect .

Doesn’t look the full quid. You get what you deserve. Who is he ? The nation doesn’t know anything about this guy. What does he stand for ? What’s his vision? Another copy and paste ?

Posted in: Cool Biz campaign begins across Japan See in context

It’s still uniformity. While the most productive and innovative countries wear jeans and a T-shirt Japan is still hung on presentation . Yes , the mask is a cultural norm now for many. It’s part of the uniform which indicates’I’m a good person’. It’s all quite dehumanising.

Posted in: 2 arrested over video of unhygienic acts at Yoshinoya restaurant See in context

Why are so many of these childish acts committed by grown men in Japan. But that’s another issue.

Throw the book at them as it’s only a matter of time until there is seriously dangerous matter involved.

With thousands of hectares of space you have to bunch together in a crowded group and risk an accident. Collectivism at it’s best folks.

There are many factors at play I believe. Social anxiety disorders, avoidance personality disorders, depression stemming from school, culture, relationships and group dynamics.

Emotional immaturity is also a contributor. Self development will remain stagnant if one never thinks for oneself and is conditioned to always follow instruction.

Gaming seems to be a prominent feature. Perhaps it gives opportunity to make your own choices and decisions and be in control .

A tragedy. It states he was a JHS boy, but he was only 10 yrs old.

Moderator: The story has been corrected to indicate the boy was in elementary school.

Tourists do not want to be treated as infected inferior specimens. Unnecessary testing, masked, monitored, guided, supervised, lectured. Japan’s true colours.

Posted in: Arabs decry 'racist' double standard in Ukraine media commentary See in context

It appears the majority of Middle Eastern and African refugees in Europe are young fighting age men who left women and children behind. Whereas the majority of refugees from Ukrain are Ukrainian women and children and Middle Eastern people who have made Ukrain their home. Ukrain men are the ones staying to fight.

Sorry, but she’s a living walking billboard. She’s wearing the brand and has Adidas stripes in her hair. The equivalent of an Adidas tattoo.

Are children, the most vulnerable in society second class citizens? Why are monsters being allowed access to them ? Kids already have it tough and add the extra burden of being in proximity of sex offenders is a crime in itself.

‘Will take you back to your childhood…

Have these ‘adults’ actually developed emotionally past childhood ? This is equivalent to that of a handwritten signature with a teletubies face behind it.

Ahh, the old political divide even during life or death circumstances. The main controversy in NZ was Maori weren’t given priority over other ethnicities for vaccine rollouts ( queue jumping) and Maori healthcare providers weren’t granted extre $millions to vaccinate Maori in a non Eurocentric way.
