Posted in: Court rejects call to revoke approval for nuclear reactor restarts See in context

Wakarimasen:

I actually did some research on this as i used to believe that nuclear power was the only way for such energy use.

Geothermal, hydroelectric, solar, offshore wind, and wave can deliver...just use 3-5 of the above. The Netherlands even runs their entire electric train systems off wind power. Machines and lights are getting more energy efficient too. Solar panels designed as roof panels are also taking off. Planes and helicopters can be powered by liquid hydrogen with exhaust being water. Cars...well, electric, fuel cell, running on an electric wire system like trains, etc.

Posted in: Nearly 50% of Japan's singles have no dating prospects: gov't survey See in context

Same issue here. Start dating young (when both of you are young) or get arranged marriage by parents (in most cases, you do get final word). Dating websites are flawed and some use fake profile pix just to entice. They make you register and explain everything...then they say "well, you wanna actually use this website, you better pay up before we show you the women or allow you to talk." They could've said that before I inputted all that data they sell to data collection companies (why we still pay for site is unclear since they sell our data anyway).

Lostrune2:

Not necessarily. Calling in a hoax for the other officers is premeditation. It could be shown that he was competent enough to plan his attack. As such, the judge may deny mental defence.

If you're saying your country, you can say the UK. Scotland is a state within the UK, just as Texas is a state within the US.

Scottish pride and Texas Pride...go for it :)

Plus the franchise owners have to buy the lot and build the building. Where is the corporate help?

Posted in: 7-Eleven stores struggling in face of labor shortage See in context

"We will aim for leniency in operating convenience stores but without risking falls in sales."

Confused. If they're franchises, they have individual owners and keep their profits, minus the ghastly annual charge for use of the company name and obedience to the rules. How does corporate feel the loss of sales if their annual charge to franchises is a set fee?

Posted in: Reverence for tradition threatens same-sex marriage in Japan See in context

I like how some say "ok with consenting adults." The same sx marriage is a law just like consent and marriage. If you can change thar, you can change the other two. It would probably take another 20-30 years before society becomes accepting of pedosxuals as well. They're not even at the joking state yet, they're still in the persecution stage. These same stages were what the hmosxuals went through too.

Just watched American media on this. They said "sources and allies back Americas assessment." Wow. Must be talking about Israel and Saudi Arabia - biased against iran. Don't know any others who believe for sure it was Iran.

"Classes at schools in the area will be canceled Monday if the man has not been caught by 9 a.m"

Schools in america would be closed year-round all the time of they followed this policy. Everybody and their mum is packing...

That could be applied to her too. She can talk or write about problems with the schools, or she could make her own school to solve the problems.

Why doesnt she start her own school and enrol students who want to be individuals and escape exam hll? She seems to have enough money for a private school.

On a similar note, wonder why no cram school is used exclusively as opposed to after regular school? If they are so good, why not just drop regular school and go to cram only?

TheFu:

Consenting adult varies...age of consent is different in different countries. If a country has theirs set at 25 and you're with a 24 year old, you'd be prosecuted as a pedo. Laws are made and amended constantly.

Commanteer:

I wouldn't say brave. The mainstream is to be more accepting of hmosxuality. Brave would be standing up for pedosxuality, which is not just unpopular but career endangering - they're born that way too, right?

Jonathon:

"By the way in saying so, pedos can say the same about their sexuality..."

In another 20 years or so, people will be more accepting. Acceptance of hmosxuality wasn't overnight. It was actually flipped in history where pedos were accepted and hmos were not (indeed executed in many places). Culture changes.

So "scalping" is legal if you're a corporation, but not if you're a common riff-raff peasant.

Posted in: Abe meets Iranian president; warns of armed conflict amid soaring tension with U.S. See in context

"Abe will also meet the Islamic Republic's top authority, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei."

I've always seen the Supreme leader like a 18th century monarch head of state. More interventionist than Queens Elizabeth and Victoria, but perhaps not (king) George or Anne. The president is like the head of govt (strong prime minister - in relation to the parliament, not the supreme leader). Maybe the next supreme leaders role will be merely to advise, warn, and be given weekly updates.

The US, Canada, EU, Russia, will not guarantee your independence by show of force (stationing of troops, carrier group offshore, etc). They'll just urge China to respect it's agreement.

Get out while you can. China may soon control departures from Hong Kong. Don't wait until they "build the Berlin wall". Rebuild in Taiwan, Singapore, etc.

Posted in: Pentagon still struggling with child sex assaults by 13-year-old boy at Kadena base See in context

The boy needs to take sx ed classes or go to a mixed bathing area for curiosity. Too much pent up curiosity among other things... Can't really give the kid a magazine, as his preference is forbidden. As for the "more violent" comment, molesting usually means touching and massaging in a sxual manner. Rape is more violent, mutilation even more so, and finally death.

Just use a disclaimer and eating system - stop imposing one's values in another. Don't make laws about that. If you dont want to see scenes of gay, pedo, straight, [insert moral outrage], then don't watch it.

By all means have the option for internet, but don't require it. Not every game needs to be an MMO. Sometimes I just want to play with npcs on local console.

Zichi:

Then you are blessed. My only internet available where I live is cell phone. Sometimes the indicator says 4g, but other times 3g (but it really means 56kb/sec. In either case, the speed has never exceeded 700kb/sec (yes, kilobytes)...and that is rare (average is 100kb/sec.

More train cars so they are much less full, and instal cameras for evidence. Forgot who said, but double decking the trains would be difficult since most trains use overhead catenary wires.

Here's an idea: let the corporate govt be of the people (employees), by the people, and for the people. Scrap the communistic nominating committee. Every citizen of the company (employee) can put their name in the hat for the board after getting so many signatures.

Do not require the internet. Some people get console games because computer games now all require the internet. Some people live in the boonies with little to no signal.
