Networking and not being afraid to put yourself in for things you think might be out of your reach would be my addition. It can be done.

Posted in: Japanese prosecutors hit back at Ghosn's '8 hours of questions' claim See in context

This has got to them so badly it's it's just funny to see what they come out with next. I know some people who have fallen foul of the law here for various reasons and they all said the same thing of the process, which is very similar to what Ghosn is saying.

So if they can’t get a fair trial here send them to somewhere known to be fair and just.

Somewhere like Canada......

But wait...Canada also has a 99% conviction rate.

Where on earth did you get that figure about Canada? I've done a search and it comes back with an overall conviction rate of 62% of people tried in an adult court, compared to 99% in Japan.

"We will ask passengers flying from Wuhan to answer questionnaires about their health condition,"

Which will be as effective as the notices requesting asking anyone with signs of sickness to report to the quarantine area upon arrival at the airports in Japan. Obviously the Japanese national who had flu symptoms in China and carried the virus here did that didn't he!

I absolutely love living in Tokyo. Yes it's busy and noisy etc etc but really it's just all about finding the neighbourhood that works for you. My neighbourhoods awesome, plenty going on but also very chilled out, the people are great.

Just pass a law stipulating children have to be a certain age to have a smartphone, i'd be in agreement with that, they mush kids brains and their eyes.

It is not a mistake, That is his name.

LOL so it is thank you! I've never ever heard him called Henry before that and I grew up over there doh!

The British media will always pick their hero and villain. We had Dianna and Fergie, William and Harry and now Kate and Meghan. They're unlikely to change unfortunately so good luck to Harry and Meg.

Some guy was asking what I thought about Prince Henry the other day and I thought nothing of the mistake but last night I noticed him being called Prince Henry on Japanese tv, It was also written on the screen in katakana.

Posted in: Does the naked body belong on Facebook? It’s complicated See in context

I binned off FB in December and my mind is much clearer for it. I got fed up with all the ads, was starting to get bored of how other peoples opinions of how we should all live our lives and realised it's just unnecessary to my life to feel the need to share whatever it is i'm doing. I'm not needlessly picking up and looking at my phone every 5 minutes either.

I'm only talking about the main island of Okinawa (particularly the southern half) but I thought it was an overdeveloped mess when I visited.

Posted in: Questions of racism linger as Harry, Meghan step back See in context

The British tabloids are a disgrace, they chew people up and spit them out, they don't care. I can understand Harry wanting out and wanting to protect his wife, as his mother courted the tabloids but they ended up destroying her.

They also need to help themselves. As Zichi pointed out, why on earth did they do it so publicly? They just lit the fuse and tried to run away from the inevitable explosion.

He said there was collusion between Nissan executives, some of whom he named, and government officials whom he would not name.

Why not name the government officials?

So he wouldn't put the Lebanese government in an even more difficult position with the J government, which could jeopardize his welcome there. I turned off when he said he wouldn't name J officials, that would've been the real scoop. The rest of what I saw was not that interesting as it wasn't much different to what had already been assumed.

Posted in: U.S., Iran step back from the brink; region still on edge See in context

Iran backs militia groups in the region and America backs militia groups in the region, so they are as bad as each other. Thankfully this saving face exercise seems to have been carefully choreographed to avoid more serious conflict.

He broke the deal because it was not his deal

Nooooooo, he withdrew from the deal because it was enabling Iran to continue to cause mayhem and misery while continuing efforts to acquire nukes. Oh sure, there were some restrictions but eventually they were going to get nukes.

Riiiiight so Iran had a deal that was signed by the US, the EU, plus Russia and China and those signatories other than the US were sure Iran was adhering to it. If they were found to be in breach they would've had everyone on them. The US has not shown any evidence Iran was in breach of the deal and now there is no deal is that better??? How's Trumps great deal with NK going? You know, the one that has made the world a safer place?

I can't honestly see much difference between the US and Iran. Both countries have religious nut jobs in their governments and both countries fund and equip terrorist groups. The main difference I do see is that The US has thousands of nukes and has caused more mayhem, death and destruction in foreign countries to feed it's insatiable appetite for resources and greed.

@ KniknaknokkaerToday He needlessly broke the nuclear deal with Iran, the relationship was as cordial as it had been between the 2 for ages and now look. It's totally on Trump.

So wrong and no real grasp of situation, post your facts why its Trumps fault vs blabbing.

Here you are, Trumps very own blabbing............https://www.npr.org/2017/10/13/557622096/transcript-trump-s-remarks-on-iran-nuclear-deal

He broke the deal because it was not his deal, just like he has with several other deals made before his term.
