Posted in: Smoking, vaping to be banned at Tokyo Olympic venues See in context

You know "vape" is short for vapor, right?

You inhale the vapor from the pen, and exhale it into the air around you.

It's visible. It has an aroma. And, it often contains harmful chemicals, either from the contents of the capsule or from the components of the pen itself, which is usually made in China often using hazardous materials.

You wanna vape? Go ahead. Just do it in your home, in your car, or in one of those smoke-filled fish bowls on train platforms and at the airport. Knock yourself out.

Have you ever seen somebody trying to lit up a vape stick?

Posted in: Smoking, vaping to be banned at Tokyo Olympic venues See in context

Vapors are as harmful to others as toothpicks, and have no "fruity" smell. Living in an air polluted city like Tokyo, you people sure can moan about vaping. You're anti smoking stance has reached pathetic levels.

Why is vaping banned? Except for the iquos, they have no smell or second hand hand smoke. What's next.. No toothpicks in your mouth?

Posted in: Ghosn's new lawyer takes aim at Nissan and prosecutors See in context

The fact that he got of Ozawa and other bureaucrats doesn't mean anything. The japanese legal system has always been very forgiving towards these criminals. The judges here are always on the procecuter's side, and it's up to the defense to find any holes in the law, even then often ending up at the end of a short stick, because the judge let's his own personal opinion rule over the evidence or lack of it.

My fifty cents: the new lawyer will be as useless as his predecessor.

a price hike of $200.

An updated pencil, still at $99

But the starting price goes up $200 to about $1,200

That means accessories using the iPad's old Lightning port will need adapters, sold separately.

The Air also loses the slot for camera memory cards. An adapter costs $39.

And what do we learn from this....

Patrick Moorhead, founder of Moor Insights & Strategy, said the refreshed products are likely to please Apple fans and users

Madness!

Posted in: What can be done to reduce bullying at schools? See in context

Make school life in Japan less stressful and create a more humane environment. Stop those awfull morning practices and evening practices, give the kids a chance to relax and sleep enough.

Bullying in Japan is common practice, at school, in the park, and on the workfloor...stress is the common factor.

I love her hair, Japanese princesses have the most beautiful hair! Megan has nice hair too, but just not as beautiful

I also felt like other posters here, that this was the most beautiful weddings ever, my wife insisted on a Christian style wedding...I really regret this now, nothing beats the serene beauty and simplicity of a Shinto wedding! Now I'm waiting for their first born child, my daughter Aiko needs a sister or a brother!

You're right, it happened to me, they stole 3002307 yen from me and hard headed idiot that I am, I purchased a Galaxy S9 after my contract finished and this time they stole 18 pictures and an excel file with all my favorite ramen shops in Sapporo. This happened to a friend of mine too, but in his case they accessed his "puni puni" account and stole five puni puni's! I learned my lesson well and I will never ever buy another android again! More major breaches than a Swiss cheese!

Posted in: Which do you think is better: Apple's iOS or Android? See in context

Apple has proved that limitations are sometimes a good thing, they decide when the people are ready for a new function. Waterproof? Until apple made their phones ip86 no one would ever consider taking their phones into the shower. Big screens? Apple made them cool and convinced us that they were cool and useful. Double camera? Until apple introduced their superior product, one was enough. OLED? Apple convinced us that LED screens were superior, especially with the words"retina"stamped on them...but apple showed the world that they could improve on that technology and introduced super duper OLED, blowing away the competition and making OLED mainstream. SD cards? Apple proved that we didn't need them, instead they introduced iCloud, a far superior way to back up your pics and music. Remove headphone port? Again apple lead the way, proving that we didn't need those, instead they introduced the highly fashionable superior sounding i earphone thingies.

If we just follow apple, the world would be a better place!

Posted in: Women in management at Japanese firms still a rarity: poll See in context

Many men don't have managing positions either, if there's a open position and 9 men and one woman applies it would sexist to hand the woman this job based on her gender.

Men also often support their families, a basic practice in Japan, whereas career women live on double incomes or often chose not to marry. Supporting a family is better for society (children=future).

Still I think the best candidate should get the job, but pushing women in managing positions isn't the way.

Posted in: Apple iPhones get bigger and pricier; Watch turns to health See in context

Since switching to Bluetooth headphones, I've never once wanted to use wired headphones, or had the need. A headphone jack would be entirely useless for me.

Bluetooth headphones have a far shorter life span than regular wired headphones, and not all cars are equipped with audio blue tooth.

Posted in: Apple iPhones get bigger and pricier; Watch turns to health See in context

Apple is continuing the trend of less for more and blatantly ripping off it's most loyal customers.., no headphone jack, no fingerprint sensor, a huge notch, no dongle (!?), no fast charger included. Why can't the world richest company not include a 9 dollar dongle and a 29 dollar charger?

Sure Bluetooth headphones work fine, but have their limitations, I don't want to be handicapped on a 1000 dollar costing device.

In the meantime the press is going gaga over the new emojis, the face scanner (how did we ever live without it..a fingerprint scanner does the same job without increasing the size of the notch and the price). The increased speed (Facebook opens a nano second faster).

The greed of this company is just painful and still people will bite the bullet and gobble them up ...

When you talk about 'luck' you should mention the stupidity of the French goalie as well

> No that was just stupidity...

You're reasoning clearly shows your lack of knowledge of football... Even the best teams have to attack in this kind of "loser gets nothing" situation, creating huge chances for fast countering teams like the French and Belgium. I wrote imo, you should have written IMHO... Back to cricket Net.

I think you guys watched a different game, Croatia was the better team imo, it was just after the two unlucky goals against them, that they had to attack leaving space available for the French counters. France was good, Croatia was better, but thanks to both teams for a great final!
