Posted in: Japan, S Korea agree to work on N Korea issues See in context

Do these agreements cost money? The North Korea safety issue benefits both countries so I hope Japan does not pay South Korea any money just to enter the agreement.

Did he have drinks with them in a hotel bar? Yes.

Did they proceed up to his hotel room after drinks? Yes.

That is all we know. I hope the investigation is thorough and accurate.

Good luck to both parties. May justice prevail.

They are Canadians but they have funky names. I'm guessing they came to Canada as immigrants in order to get passports to do this very illegal thing.

Posted in: 3 schoolgirls drown in Fukuoka river on 1st day of summer vacation See in context

I have a son the same age. He's always inside playing with his ipad. While I applaud the students for playing outside, it is a tragic outcome. Not sure if there was horseplay or peer pressure involved, that is only speculation. What is fortunate is that the number was not 4 dead. The river appears calm. There are houses in the background. Where were the nosy neighbors? On a side note, a few years ago my son, wife and I went to a river on the outskirts of our city. There is a pretty strong current in one area with a clear sign that you might die. My wife and I were on the shore watching our son. He got into a bit of trouble, not in the danger area, but we could not tell. He was lucky to get out of it, but he felt that he was going to die while mommy and daddy were looking on. So that fourth girl was super lucky. The unfortunate 3 while drowning separately entered the spirit world together. I sometimes hope that my son, wife, and I die together in a plane crash or something. There is a bit of poetry in it while being morbid at the same time.

As a fellow Canadian, he is a disgrace. Send him to a Japanese jail for a month. He can't speak English in jail and visiting family members can't speak English with him either then deport and abolish him from the country.

I'm confused,


Deepen collaboration on key regional/global issues

Bickering about the timeline of the Chinese "spy" base in Cuba

So no other presidents have ever commissioned the trilateral collaboration: Japan/Phil/S.K. OR is it the "first-ever" with this administration?

How vague can you be?

These leaders sound like kids arguing in the park. Current admin sure go out of their way to muddy former admin's reputation.

A: It was upgraded when you were in charge.

B: No, it wasn't.

A: Yes, it was.

B: I would remember that, if it was.

@naturalboke, For Japanese junior high school is the last mandatory level of education as they can start working full time after graduating. Obviously, the 17 year old chose not to go to high school. Therefore, his status is unemployed.

I am a Tucker supporter.

Good luck man!

Elon Musk is doing his best to support him.

I'm also an Elon supporter.

Not a big fan of the liberals though.

Posted in: Boy, 14, killed by train in Nikko following school disciplinary warning See in context

Phew! I was thinking about calling a parent at one of my schools, but now I'm glad I didn't. Luckily, I will be changing schools in April. Looking back, what could I have done differently?

I didn't make rules, but I sensed they needed some nit-picky ones to plug the holes. There was always ambient noise in the class. Should I have been stricter with clicking pens, acrobatic pens, bad posture, talking, being overly critical to skit, speech performers, playing tic tac toe, sleeping, kicking shins, flipping other classmates off, etc. Other classes had the same behavior, but somehow, I knew the attitude and the intent to behave badly was done with purpose in that problem class.

Anyway, they are someone else's problem now. I just have to tough out a couple more lessons with them.

Posted in: Japan lifts Asian Cup with 1-0 win over Australia See in context

The champions should've been Australia. Somehow, they just couldn't find the back of the net. The "River Island God" sure had Kawashima's back, eh? Kawa is river and Shima is island in Japanese. This is the year of the rabbit and the Japan team has shown us how to pull them out of hats. I'm sure they will show us many more magical performances. Too bad for the ticket holders who couldn't get in. Maybe they should've arrived at the stadium earlier, I'm guessing.

This game had me at the edge from kickoff. Korea sported the deadly long pass threat and Japan had the sweet pass-goal. Hard to say who played better as both teams had plenty of good chances. I expected Korea to play more aggressively. Most obscenities that came from my mouth were directed at Japan's missed headers and Kagawa's finesse-tracked play. Kagawa was the King in PKO. Had to listen to the game in Japanese.

Japan will have to watch out for the Aussie boy's Kancho-style of play in the final.

Thanks for the giving us positive results in the most exciting game of the 2011 Asian Cup, Japan. Good luck on Saturday!
