Posted in: Israel presses on with bombarding Gaza, including areas it has called safe zones for Palestinians See in context

Despite growing international pressure, President Joe Biden's administration remains opposed to an open-ended cease-fire, arguing it would enable Hamas to continue posing a threat to Israel.

The US government is an outlier not calling for a ceasefire!

Why not?

Is it that American weapons to Israel generate too much money?

Is the Jewish influence in the US too great?

Hsve Americans forgotten the constitutional rules that they themselves live under?

Maybe Americans are content watching degraded Palestinians of all ages being blown apart?

Posted in: McDonald’s Japan is bringing back its Beef Stew Pie See in context

The food (sic) is shipped thousands of miles, the cheapest possible, made in industrial kitchens and heated up by lowly paid staff that have zero culinary skills-just thinking of it makes me feel nauseous!

Australia is one of the world's largest producers and exporters of gas and coal, two key fossil fuels that are blamed for global heating.

Posted in: 'Oppenheimer' to get theatrical release in Japan, after all See in context

It’s an excellent film that is focused on Oppenheimer not Japan.

The weak yen and restrictions lifted makes a lasting economic recovery?

I don’t think so.

I see lots of Asian tourists walking around but not with laden shopping bags.

A sure sign of a recovery is when Japanese tourists start taking foreign trips.

I don’t see planes with many Japanese now.

I don’t hear Japanese at duty free shops.

In arguably the most affluent of Kansai, I know an EFL teacher who’s income is a third now compared to pre Covid.

People are less interested in foreign languages.

The school owner wants to sell due to lack of interest.

On a macro level the population is aging fast and not taking international trips.

Subsidies for the elderly are increasing and GDP is falling.

Where is long term growth going to come from?

Violation of the law's clause carries a penalty of imprisonment for up to five years or fines of up to 1 million yen upon conviction.

So, when was the last time a prison sentence was handed out for this transgression?

Stealing an onigiri from a convenience store is more likely to culminate in a gaol sentence and fine!

Killing more and more innocent people every day?
