Posted in: Denying defeat, Trump offers fodder for world's strongmen See in context

A democracy must have honest elections if the majority of the people's will is to be represented, and what we are reading in the media, and as the result of judicial actions is that the 2020 Presidential elections have been honest . . . .

'buns-free' burger is good if you wish to reduce your calories/ carbohydrate intake, however, the two beef patties seem excessive, why not make it with just one?

Posted in: As teen suicides rise, 21-year-old Japanese student starts online message counseling See in context

As a parent, I would like to offer some advice:  make certain your child has enjoyable, intellectual activity during their youth (biking, hiking, sight seeing, learning foreign language) with parents; also, it's a good idea to visit a country like the U S, (where is safe, e.g. California, Northeast coast) in order see their own home in perspective (I think most Japanese are lucky to live in a place like Japan, seeing another country will make them feel more grateful) . . . make certain they have some fun, before they get to the age where they are asked to take on more responsibility.

I wish more cities, e.g. in Western countries like U. S., would consider some of the Japanese ideas, such as "Hokousha Tengoku" or "Hokoten" (Pedestrian Paradise) where streets are temporarily closed for pedestrians only on particular days during Spring.

Posted in: Japanese manners debate: Is it OK to tell your coworkers 'I’ve found a new job?' See in context

For the most part, I never told co-workers if I was going to another job . . . during my many years working . . . .  However, if I was moving to a new location several thousand miles away to pursue new opportunity, then I told the boss only . . . however, someone found out, and put it on a map of the world (where other "alumni" were also indicated with a small pin) . . . additionally, if I was working for a small firm (and my family needed better circumstances . . . then I needed to ask my boss for permission to see if it was acceptable to him that I be able to move on) . . . . in most all cases only the boss/ employer was told, and when possible permission was asked based on the state of affairs at present office . . . .

Posted in: Japan to release treated Fukushima water into sea, media report See in context

If the filtered water is released back into the ocean, it should be as far away from Japan as possible . . . is it fair to have it safely released into International Zone waters? . . . the nuclear reactor was made by a U S company . . . but the accident was due to an earthquake . . . . If the Japanese government says evaporation is also a "realistic option", is there a way to safely have the water evaporated naturally by the sun?  Polluted residue after evaporation can then be further treated for placement in containers outside of Japan (Antartica or Outer Space . . . Outer Space may be an option, by sending a container with remote power - consider Newton's 1st law - that being the case a container with contaminant could go beyond our solar system into deep space).
