Posted in: 20-year-old student sent to prosecutors over fatal bike crash See in context

According to police, the student was riding along with a smartphone in her left hand and an earphone in her left ear when she crashed into Akiko Yonezawa. The student also had a drink in her right hand.

See this kind of thing so often, they need to throw the book at her.

10 times is still too many and even that is rather pointless without limiting the amount they can stake each visit.

Posted in: U.S. court says Trump travel ban unlawfully discriminates against Muslims See in context

Trump has said the policy is needed to protect the United States from terrorism by Islamic militants.

It would appear Americans need protecting from fellow Americans more but he ain't prepared to do jack about that.

Does no one in city planning here have any clue? It looks like a huge site that the current building is not utilizing to its full potential. If the land is to be sold, sell it with a stipulation that a certain amount of space in the new tower block must be used for community services for children.

Posted in: Japan's average adult height declining for those born in 1980 or later See in context

Yes my wife was also told she was too fat when she was pregnant, both times, which really worried her during the first one and she ignored during the second. Both our babies were born between 3.5 and 4kgs, perfectly healthy and all around there were these tiny feeble babies coming out 2-2.5kgs. Seriously, many women here aren't even showing their pregnancy until they're very close to dropping and I really do think the doctors are advising them incorrectly on this but what do I know!

^^^^ Well if he was in a relationship with her and she broke it off, or tried to which he wouldn't accept, then he was a stalker.

I saw a video of people stuck and sleeping etc in their cars, in a town, surrounded by businesses and houses. Did no one open their doors to people?

Had Hulu at first and it was pretty poor so gave it up when Netflix came, which I really like. Also now have Amazon Prime but haven't yet explored it so much, just been watching The Grand Tour.

So in other words, the legally permissible fire safety operating range is completely inadequate then.

Hmmmm more like they certainly don't seem to love the man who represents their country very much. Anyway, carry on with your stupid bickering Mr President as the real world passes you by.

I find the whole holiday guilt thing quite pathetic and really annoying. Everyone should feel free to take their entitlement. If a colleague covers your work you will end up covering theirs so nobody loses out anyway.

Posted in: Japan's schools are in total denial over diversity See in context

Aly - Canada? The weather there is cr@p! And the people are so friendly that you almost want to smack them. Being an American, I've met more Canadians in Japan than I ever met in the U.S. Relative to the population of Canada, there is a much higher percentage of Canadians here than Americans, so there must be something wrong with Canada. And the Brits - the same. Again, must be something up with the weather back in merry ol' England.

Or maybe it's that they are more cultured and curious of the big wide world than Mericans?

Posted in: 6 exchange students at Tohoku University arrested over cocaine use See in context

Three of the students reportedly took cocaine last November while visiting a nightclub in Aoba Ward. The other three are said to have used the drug at their university dormitory after receiving a small amount of the powdered substance for free.

This article is weird, have they all been arrested for currently being in possession or have they been arrested because someone told them they previously were in possession? If they were caught in possession of it, what does doing it in a club in November have to do with anything?

Posted in: About 4,000 homeless in Tokyo believed to be sleeping in 24-hour cafes on any weeknight See in context

We will only see more of this unfortunately, the working poor and the homeless.

The current climate of rising living costs and stagnant wages (or lower than 10 years ago in the UK) just doesn't add up. My hometown in the UK, Brighton, has seen a 24% increase in homelessness from the same period in 2016. A 24% increase! It has the second highest rate of UK homelessness only to London but with a fraction of the population! This seems to be happening all over the place and must be stopped.
