Data tells that free-range hens are healthier and immune-efficient than battery-caged ones and such eggs are more nutritious and sanity than caged hens' ones.

There're 2 types of free range chicken raising, free space equipped chicken coop raising and only fence surrounding free range raising. The former spends the most cost but isn't susceptible to epidemic. The latter takes the least handling but is susceptible to epidemic and seized by raptors.

Posted in: WHO fires Japanese director in Asia, accused of racist misconduct See in context

The definition of racism is simply there is the difference of culture race by race. Bad thing is discrimination. Did he treat his subordinates or member countries of WHO differently by race, etc?

It's a fact that there is the difference of victimized number by COVID19 country by country. As far as we don't analyze ANY possibility of the cause, we will never reach the solution. Medical is science, not politics.

Using other race's culture such as Kimono is accused by those who think it defilement of traditional culture but the Japanese don't think so. I hate such victims mind political correctness.

Posted in: Japan, S Korea eye package to resolve wartime labor, other issues See in context

1) These so-called wartime labors are those who applied for high salary jobs in Japan voluntarily. Japan offered to liquidate the unpaid portion to individual workers but Korea requested to pay the total as they deliver the money to each person but diverted to development of industries such as Samsun, Hyundai, Posco, etc in 1965. That's why the debt is Korean gov't's original one and it's wrong to call 'take over the debt'.

2) Strengthening export control was demanded by the US and so Japan cannot determine Korea's white-country return by herself. Korea is too immature to know such back scene of international diplomacy.

3) Other than territorial dispute, there's left a serious issue that Korea's navy aimed at Japan's patrol airplane by weapon use radar. Therefore, above isn't the package to resolve issues.

Anyway, as far as Korea teaches true history into youth that that period isn't colonization but annexation that Korean King asked Japan and was better than Lee dynasty period for most of Koreans except brutal peerage, these grudge and victim mind continue forever.

However, South Korea is complaining about the calling name of the sea where the drill was done. They're claiming to change the name from the Sea of Japan to the East Sea though they never claim to change the name from the Yellow Sea to the West Sea with fearing China.

Posted in: South Korea plans fund to compensate World War II forced labor victims See in context

Some people here know true history.

1) Japan had paid the money in 1965 though it didn't need to because Korean calling forced workers were those who applied voluntarily and japan and Korea had merged with treaty without war.

2) South Korea demanded all portion for the peninsula as they'd deliver the money of north portion to north though they didn't control north part and diverted it to found steel company, etc.

Therefore, Korean gov't has only to have the money returned from such companies.

Posted in: S Korea working to solve wartime labor issue: Japan official See in context

Koreans don't want to solve the problems of Japan because bashing Japan kills 2 birds with 1 stone as the source of revenue for them and the repulsion force against the US for pro-China/N. Korea faction of their majority.

So they keep saying, "Apologize! We don't want money." and once Japan apologized, they say, "You apologized because you admitted your guilt? Then make up for it."

Former PM Abe cut up the vicious circle with the will, "I never let our later generations apologize ever again!"

The German swastika is a symbol for at least three religions in India. It represents prosperity and good luck.

That's not correct. The circling direction is opposite. Buddhism mark is clock wise, proceeding with time but Nazis mark is anti-clock wise, back-warding against time.

This article is misleading (or you're misreading). The content and responsibility of the job between regular workers and non-regular workers are different. The point is whether management can trust and disclose confidential info to non-regular workers.

He doubled Nikkei Stock Price Index and cut unemployment ratio by half.

Moreover, he incorporated Security laws which strengthened the alliance with the US but was unfavorable for China and Korea.

He is the greatest PM in Japan's history.

1) Then-current Japanese in cities evacuated to rural area around the end of WW2 to escape from US raid. Most of cities were burnt and the boundaries of ownership became unclear. Koreans who had no place to evacuate occupied valuable areas to build Pachinko parlor.

2) Administration systems such as police were disassembled and Koreans committed crimes such as burglary, rape, etc with calling themselves Chosen Occupation Forces. So the US ordered Japan to send them back to peninsula but some of them were hiding. Such is current Zainichi.

Posted in: Japan-S Korea feud set to flare over wartime labor row See in context

1) Japan developed Korea and made the infrastructure such as 4,000 schools. It's not colony.

2) Japan didn't fight against Korea in WW2 but paid $500M as compensation including this issue though no other country paid compensation to colonized country.

3) If the treaty in 1965 is nullified, Japan would demand above cost like other countries. It would exceed $500M by far.

It turned out a fake news. Japanese spokesman explained that Japan had counter-offered to express accusation against China separately as it hadn't wanted to take long time to coordinate the wording. It' only Japan that had called up Chinese ambassador to tell the accusation.

Posted in: S Korea's actions not helpful in resolving export spat, Japan says See in context

Korea is mixing irrelevant issues from Anti-Japan sentiment.

1) The reason why Japan strengthened export control is that Korea reexported mass-destruction weapon usable material to risky countries and 40 tons of a kind of it still missing. Claiming that Japan should return the status of Korea from standard to favored is nonsense and suing it to WTO will complicate the relation more.

2) All issues Japan and Korea were settled by treaty between the them in 1965 and unpaid wage issue on volunteered workers are unsolved between them and Korean gov.

3) GSOMIA has nothing to do with above but if Korea want to break up, do as they do. Just the US gets upset.

Posted in: South Korea to reopen WTO complaint over Japan's export controls See in context

This is simple. 40 tons of a certain mass-destruction usable materials are missing after having exported to Korea. So Japan returned Korea to from favored procedure to standard one. Standard one is discriminated?

1) It has turned out that testing after screening by CT scan is correct answer rather than testing all comers.

Japanese strong point that there are the most CT scanners in the world has been useful.

2) By above, Japan hasn't wasted not only medical man-powers but also medical armaments.

PCR tester cannot avoid around 20% of pseud-positive or pseud negative and judging whether the corona virus is Wuhan type or ordinary type is more difficult.

Posted in: Experts warn of health care collapse in Japan if virus keeps spreading See in context

Japan has 4 times more CT scanners than other advanced nations. Wuhan pneumonia is detected by CT scanner even at early stage. It's more reliable than PCR test which bears 30% of pseud-positive and pseud-negative. Point is death. The deceased who died of Wuhan virus isn't seen even by the bereaved like the popular comedian and sent to cremation directly because of the possibility of contagion. So the number doesn't tell a lie.

1) Nationality of the ship is the UK. The ship is operated by American company. Japan could reject it but accepted from goodwill. Which else country could do that? Why is Japan blamed? Those who criticize Japan now ought to have dispatched charter plane at the very beginning with foreseeing current situation.

2) The ship was holding show, casino, theater, party, etc even after ex-passenger turned out to be infected. It spread virus. Why nobody demands the company to excuse about it?

Posted in: Seoul faces major decision over military pact with Tokyo See in context

Retract the export control and the GSOMIA is restored. Maintain the export control and the GSOMIA ends.

Abe decides, not Moon. And Abe's office told Americans Japan didn't wish to extend the GSOMIA.

You're completely misunderstanding.

Tons of a kind of mass-destruction weapon usable material which Japan is missing in Korea.

So, Japan demanded the explanation of the destination and usage but Korea rejected answering it.

Therefore, Japan just returned Korean status to cope with export control from the favored to the standard.

There is no country that doesn't control export and Abe hadn't told Japan didn't wish to extend the GSOMIA.

EU also isn't dealing with Korea as favored country. If Korea sue Japan, they must sue EU too.

2) Targeted items are needed for mass destruction weapon and Korea is suspected to export them to dangerous countries.

No, it isn't. You had better cast such habit to see everything skeptically.

If Bangladesh doesn't need money, they don't need to visit Japan all the way for it.

If Bangladesh doesn't believe Japan, they have only to choose other country if there is any better one.
