Posted in: Japan OKs ambitious nuclear energy target, plutonium reuse plan See in context

Enough material for 6,000 atomic bombs sounds much too dangerous . . . why not spend more effort on developing solar voltaic, wind mill, and other environmentally more friendly methods of producing energy . . . Japan suffered from 2 atomic bombs in WWII . . . . .

My apologies . . . I see the amount was 100,000 Y which is close to ~1000$ -- at that amount it starts to get serious.

Posted in: JR Central employee overcharged foreigners for bullet train tickets See in context

For the 100,000 Y ~ 100$, which he got, -- seems like he is being severely punished for such a small sum.  It's not uncommon foreigners have more money.

If a community wishes to save energy, while providing for a healthy supply of water, they should consider the use of rain cisterns attached to metal roofs - having water nearby may cut down on the amount of energy to pump it. - worth investigating?

Arming teachers may exacerbate the problem not fix it . . . consider having airport style entry points where students' bags are screened and students are checked for weapons, by electronic wand, operated by police or similar security personal.  Teachers are in school to only teach.

Posted in: Text of Trump's State of the Union address See in context

Dear President Trump,

Please let us not create a nuclear arsenal which will pollute our land, water, and air!

Contamination known as Radon, has already polluted many of our lands and natural resources from which we make building products.  Radon, nuclear pollution endangers, plants, animals, and  people (causing cancer).

Building weapons which will not harm the environment, but protect us from foreign nuclear threats makes more sense.

Symbols on escalators should indicate small children should hold hands with an adult while the adult holds onto the escalator railing.  Children should also make sure shoes are tied before approaching the escalator.
