4-year-old kids are too young to be allowed to ride on tractors...Because of my experience working with them I can tell.

Amazing how bridges structures are strong in Japan...2 trucks are leaning on it, and it didn't collapse. My home-country is Brazil, and if this kind of accidents happened in that country, I doubt the bridges would stand like that.

The article doesn't comment on which channel we can watch or, it was broadcasted. Does anybody know?

There might be consequences for the the food production capacity, if vast land is needed to produce biofuel. Also, in the text mentioned about exploration of eucalyptus leaves from Australia. That may affect the environment in the region. I wonder if they have taken that into the account.

Posted in: Death penalty finalized for man who killed mother, child while he was a minor See in context

What the criminal did is very terrible...I don't know if death penalty is right is the case. What is shocking and amazes me is that the couple had one very young kid(11months), and the wife was again pregnant? I find very stupid to have two kids in a very short span...It'll require tremendous effort to raise them...many times it requires unnecessary sacrifice to the parents and the children. I was raised in a family with many brothers, and I always thought about how stupid is to have more than one child in this situation.

Posted in: Why does the existence of AKB48 bother so many readers of Japan Today (judging from the comments on the discussion board)? See in context

I'm much more bothered with other subjects on the Japan Today news website...For example: Sumo, Imperial family.

As for AKB48, at least they are cute. If people complain about them, they should complain about Lady Gaga, Madonna...and others. These are much more exposed and their news very tirying and annoying.

Did she need to kill her? Wasn't just hitting her head with a pan enough?

He had to wrap the bodies in newspaper to avoid blood spreading all over the places. I wonder what motived him to kill them.

Posted in: 20-year-old cop arrested for allegedly molesting girl in Yokohama See in context

It's the influence of so many Ero animes...also, probably this cop was jealous of other senpais who had done similar things....Anyway, from what I've seen in the past, it's not just young cop's behaviour... Cops and people from different activities, with wide age range have been doing such things in Japan, and it's not going to stop soon. Fortunatelly, this girl didn't suffer any injuries or anything.

Posted in: Sawa named FIFA Women's Player of the Year; Messi world's best player See in context

I agree....it's shameful how the article doesn't mentione much about Sawa...she's been on the Nadeshiko Japan (japanese women's national team) form more than 18 years(since 15-year-old), and she deserved more attention.

I don't agreee with some people saying most people have never heard....from what I have seen, Women's World Cup held in Germany in 2011 had a huge viewership, and going to the Final match against USA....and then winning the World Cup....for sure many people know saw her, and heard about her...

Congratulations for Sawa and Japan...I'm lookig forward to seeing Nadeshiko Japan in the London Olympics.

Posted in: Italy wins volleyball World Cup See in context

Japan will qualify to the London Olympics....they almost got it in this World Cup, and they showed it winning tough opponents like Brazil, and U.S, number 1 and 2 in the World, respectively. And the were 3rd at the World Championship in 2003.

I watched Japan's matches through Internet, on Key Hole TV...if interests somebody. You can watch almost all the open japanese TV broadcasters there, although the quality isn't that good.

Posted in: Potpourri of post-quake crimes contradicts foreign media's reporting of placid Japanese See in context

I agree with many people here...these happenings are nothing compared to what would happen in somewhere else, hit by similar disasters. In Brazil, my home-country, much worse crimes happen everyday, and surprisingly, the culprits are often healthy, and didn't need to commite these crimes.

Posted in: Sawa in running for another soccer award See in context

Aya Miyama would also deserve the FIFA Player of the Year award. In the the World Cup Final agains USA she scored the tying goal, and then the 1st Penalty Kick.

By the way, Ayumi Kaihori should have been awarded the Golden Glove as best goal keeper in the World Cup, not just the MVP of the Final...she stopped 2 Penalty kicks..., and made other amazing saves in that and other matches...she was awesome!!

Posted in: Japanese woman killed after ferry hits her kayak in Malaysia See in context

I agree...it's weird that these elderly cuple were kayaking in such busy route...common sense says to not do that... They shouldn't be allowed to be near the ferry route. It's not much about the ferry driver.

Posted in: Hyogo teen accused of stabbing 18-year-old boy See in context

Somebody is thinking the guy wanted to break up, and the girl stabbed him. But, the article doesn't say that. Probably it was the other way around. I have a feeling that this guy deserved that. Anyway, this guy is lucky...I've read some women cut off their partners dicks.

I don't know if this is the best way...he may die trying to cross the Atlantic...like many have commented, there's lots of Tsunami debris from March 11, happened in Japan, just to list a few adversities. Seriously, if americans could save the hundreds of millions of dollars of Presidential campaigns they waste every 4 or 5 years, it would make for lots of beneficial campaigns, including cancer cause. I've always thought how shameful they can waste money on.

Posted in: World Cup women's volleyball results See in context

Japan X Brazil on Sunday(4h 20 in Montreal) morning will be very exciting. Too bad both need 3 points; I'm brazilian, and I really like both teams...it'll be sad to see one of them losing. Brazil, by the way, has been disappointing in this World Cup. Friday night(morning in Japan) the team lost to Italy in 3 straight Sets, and now it nees all the victories in straight Sets to have chance to finish within 3rd place; otherwise, Brazil won't qualify for the London Olympics in this tournament. Fortunately there'll be the American qualifying tournament, later on, if necessary for my home-country.

Greetings from Montreal!

Why some people say nonsense? Stop being idiot...'Japan will lose in the end'???? Of course it'll be difficult, but there's hope. I'm brazilian, but I also love Hinotori Nippon(Japanese Volleyball Women's National Team).I'm looking forward to seeing both in the London Olympics.

No, brazilians are not going to be humbled by China. It'll be a tough match. Cheering for Japan and Brazil. I'm very excited to see both teams match up on the 3rd round.By the way, next rounds are getting exciting, and we can expect changes in the score board.
