This type of vandal should be made to pay for the damage he has caused, and for full remediation of the property damaged.

Many years ago, while visiting Kyoto, I enjoyed having a crescent roll with a green string bean and strip of bacon - customary in Kyoto perhaps?

If Mr. Goshn's behavior was racially motivated . . . then I would try to side with the company.

It's strange that Russia takes this position -- whereas with Germany, Russia gave back East Germany and Berlin enough though Russia lost many more people fighting Germany during WW2, 26 million, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II_casualties_of_the_Soviet_Union

Compared with the few casualties killed by Japanese during WW2, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet%E2%80%93Japanese_War, (Russia claims 87 thousand).

I hope this will be an opportunity for many Nikkei communities outside of Japan -- where there are young and old people looking for opportunities, to see the land of their ancestors.

Major automobile makers, such as Toyota and Honda, must pass several collision tests in the U. S. - each car is rated according to worthiness of surviving a crash.  See https://www.iihs.org/iihs/ratings

When I was a child, I learned about the U. S. Government, and was taught about the Separation of Powers concept; whereby the Government is divided into 3 branches, the executive President and his appointees; the Congress, the House and Senate elected by the people; and the Judicial, the Courts.  Each of the 3 branches keep each other in check so that no one branch has supreme power.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separation_of_powers.  The Separation of Powers was created to prevent the concentration of power to one person.

Posted in: Reckless bicycle riding endangers lives See in context

Another idea, is having bicycles with a front headlight which is powered by an electric generator attached to one of the wheels.  Also a rear reflector.  Small rear view mirrors attached to bicyclist's helmets can also help the bicyclist.  (former bicycle cop).

The photograph shows the intersection lane markings with "50" (30mph) - this is too fast . . . should say instead "Slow" or "Stop" with "25 kph" max.  Also yellow flashing light when pedestrians are near.

There are different types of sensors available by some elevator companies, pressure or touch bar, optical strip sensors which open the door when a beam of light is broken by an incoming passenger . . . these options should be made mandatory by law . . . some elevators have both a pressure sensor and an optical sensor. . . this should be brought to the attention of Japan's elevator companies as well as government.

In the last 20+ years, the United States has created organizations such as the U. S.
