Parents should choose: cram schools or regular schools, but not both. Also, get rid of all homework. Have a study hall during school hours instead. Shorten school day 9 am to 1 or 2 pm (think some euro countries do this). Get some sleep and relaxation. Do this for all workplaces too (shift work can rotate the hour durations).

The problem that needs to be addressed is mandatory crew rest. Doctors cannot be trusted any more than fighter pilots to do their job on fumes and 3 hours of sleep. Doctors should not work any more than 8 hours per day - mandatory max. Punish both hospital and doctor (prevents finger pointing avoiding blame) and put covert inspectors inside to ensure compliance. Fatigued and sleep deprived people make mistakes.

The waterboarding, hitting, and excessive forced fasting are indeed abuse, but are there any posters on here over 40 years old? I'm younger, but even I remember going to bed without supper if I did something wrong in my parents eyes. Mine had the good sense to gauge what was excessive though (1 supper was the max at a time for me - probably 5x throughout my childhood). Some parents actually force their child to have their head shaved as punishment. I'd rather lose a meal than my hair as the meal lost is one night and known only to my family, the shaved head last for months and is a shame unto me in front of everyone in school and community.

Eye for an eye, despite its name, is not reciprocal. if you commit adultery under reciprocal, you would have adultery committed to you (silly - therefore would not be considered a crime in reciprocal any more than drugs); adultery under eye for an eye would be stoning or drowning. More like a life for an eye.

Americans especially seem to confuse the two more and more. Sx assault includes groping, molesting, and hitting for gratification. Rpe is doing the deed (ie penetration) in any orifice. Trying to keep it PG for moderators sake, sorry. Both are despicable with same theme, but different actions. Like difference between robbery and burglary.

Wby do countries have a sx offender registry after perp has served his time? Why do these same countries not have murder offender or theft offender registries? Recidivism is not just for sx crimes. Can't live within 500 feet of a combini or other commercial building, for example.

I think punishment should be reciprocal unless the victim or victims family forgive.

If person steals ¥5000, they should return ¥5000 with interest and do community service.

If a person murders, he should be murdered, unless victims family forgive - likely will need jail time or house arrest still for public safety.

If person sx assaults, they should be sx assaulted in the same manner.

This would free up the prisons definitely.

Posted in: Patriots out-muscle Rams 13-3 in lowest scoring Super Bowl ever See in context

I was looking up and found the players make $1 million - $76 million, but the coaches - whose job is more likely to be cut short - only make $90k - $300k. Where is their golden parachute?

Also, I'm a firm believer in paying the military who come back emotionally and physically scarred from wars the same as football players. The easiest way - and cost free to taxpayers - is to take a play from the NFL playbook. The department of defense creates a for profit company called the National Military League (NML), NML has each company or squadron as a team, teams compete for most wins against enemy, NML sells tickets to watch the troops live and merchandise, NML charges $millions to air ads during a battle, and so forth.

"And corporal Sanderson has dropped the most enemies in the battle. The Blue Devils take the lead where they will next do battle in Kandahar competing against the Patriots. Tune in."

Starpunk:

If I may, the amount a person may be reduced in rank depends upon who's doing it. For example, a squadron commander could take off one rank, a wing or group could take off two...pizz off a general and you could go from E8 to E2 (chiefs E9 have a bit more legal protection). Air Force, sorry.

Why hasn't he resigned yet? A police officer who took a part time job did. Pretty sure incitement to arson is a crime, not just against job regulations.

Where I'm at now, I find it laughable that its easier to get a gun that kills than a tazer that stuns. Guess we wanna make sure to kill or maim intruders. Logic...

How about replacing (not just supplementing) with tazers or stun guns? Not usually lethal, but will incapacitate a perp.

Whatever happened to UN investigators report that Russia did indeed violate the treaty? I sure hope it wasn't biased US intel - it needs to be neutral arbitrator (e.g. if I were CEO of a company, I couldn't have one of my company's departments decide).

I feel the same way about nominees (particularly cabinet members). If senate is required to be hired, the senate should be required to fire.

If it takes the senate to get into the treaty, shouldn't it take the senate to get out?

Unless its animated in a Japanese style, I don't think it should be called a manga movie. Don't cast real people, don't use south park drawings. Just anime.

Farmboy:

US bases and troops are permanent and closer to the US than the temporary Russian troops to the US border. How many overseas bases does Russia have? Yes, getting dangerous, but Russia's not the country in looking at for that.

Maybe Russia and perhaps China should do these interventions in US backed countries so that America will learn there will be a ti-for-tat and hopefully stop all the coups and wars. Ukraine redo (Americans got tab last time in 2014), UK, new zealand, etc.

The US should name another president of France as apparently Macron cannot restore peace with the yellow vests. Worked for Venezuela and several other countries too.

1glenn:

Indeed any govt that charges tuition for a life-changing degree (lawyer, doctor, etc) should blame themselves that women must do this (men don't have such luck). Further, isn't it the woman's choice what to with her body (ie abortion)? How can one be pro-choice for abortion but not pro-choice for prostitution? We need to regulate and bring into the light.
