We desperately need to get rid of one-time plastic products. People will get used to it. Just like when seatbelts were introduced or smoking was made unhealthy, users got angry in the short term, but after some time they realize it’s good and get used to it.

Stunning match. High quality football is what we saw. Now, that Mbappe guy, he's a Bolt with a ball on his feet, what an extraordinary player. Now, I am rooting for Japan. It will be THE event of this World Cup if Japan beats Belgium.

@madden: only if a player keeps passing the ball to the goalkeeper. I think.

Posted in: Japan booed as it advances on yellow cards despite losing to Poland 1-0 See in context

I just read in NYT that Japan is the only country outside Europe/Latin America that reached the 16 best ones. It makes the Nishino’s decision even more correct that we thought. I do hope Japan make at least the final 8. Once again, congrats to the Japanese team.

Posted in: Japan booed as it advances on yellow cards despite losing to Poland 1-0 See in context

I didn't watch the game (working time), but playing soft in the last matches, when results are known is a practice in every sport. See almighty England with just two main players against Belgium (or so I read), while Belgium itself with just one - the rest from the benches. I am quite happy that Japan is learning the ways to the next stage. It was not its fault, it belongs to the way Fifa has designed the tournament. Congrats Samurai Blue. You are doing good!! (Better than Germany, Italy, USA and South Korea lololol)

PM Abe could retribuir, when the Israeli come to visit, by offering an Middle Eastern cuisine dinner. Which, btw, is delicious

Democrats: we’re worried now. Republicans: we’re worried about the future. Such a big difference in train of thought. Iran, if not stopped, will be the North Korea of 2028.

Posted in: Brazil ethanol sales to Japan to sputter as Tokyo bends to Trump See in context

One key point is missing in this article, one that should environmentalists change their perception on “clear” Brazilian ethanol: while its car emission is much cleaner than gasoline, Brazilian sugarcane producers burn the remains of the harvest in a fire so huge that it zeroes any environmental gain output. This fire is so toxic, it is done hidden in the middle of the night and causes cities nearby to suffer an ash rain that pollutes everything, and populations near the ethanol plants use millions of gallons of water to clean up the mess. Of course, this is all omitted from Brazilian gov’t selling “clean” ethanol abroad. So, in the end, US ethanol may be cleaner that it’s Brazilian version.

Posted in: Twitter: 'Black Panther' is most tweeted about movie ever See in context

It’s a movie that goes “if you’re black you have to watch it, or you’re a sucker! If you’re white, you’re a sucker anyway. But go watch the movie to show you’re not a racist”. And voilá! It’s not a good movie, it’s a political statement. Boring modern times.

I don’t smoke, but I say: legalize it. Pot causes way less damage than alcohol. Never heard of “Smoked Pot and Killed Whole Family in Tomei Expressway”

The Oscar for Best Gown goes to Kim Basinger. It transpires chic classic without showing parts of her body as is the rule nowadays. Worst ever was that J-Lo green Versace she wore at the Grammy's, vulgar is the word.

Posted in: Apple moves to store iCloud keys in China, raising human rights fears See in context

Apple is not a political party, it's a company that has to respond to its shareholders. People blaming Apple are shooting the messenger here. Also, let's not forget that the Chinese political system is a fruit of wild popular support by this generation's parents and grandparents in the past. Did you want communism and a full control of your lives by the state? Now you have it, my yellow friends

Posted in: As 'Black Panther' shows, inclusion pays at the box office See in context

I think it has nothing to do with inclusion. It is just a good time movie, that is it. People are being way too extremists about inclusive. I read on Twitter a comment like this "I hated going to watch the movie and seeing white people down the line". I mean, what sort of inclusion of its this??

i don’t know whether this graffiti was done by foreigners or not. But, in Nagoya, in Naka ward,there’s an ugly graffiti - done by a person who has an also ugly calligraphy - which is from a Brazilian man I once met. He fled Japan, but his ugly work is still there

What I read: some 200 years ago, farmers started creating indoor ponds during winter and, surprise!, they discovered that carp (and some other fish) when not exposed to the sun will develop colorful skin the next generation. So, what version is true?

Posted in: Apple faces lawsuits after saying it slows down aging iPhones See in context

From what I read, Apple did the RIGHT thing to avoid iPhones turning off abruptly. But Apple is

100% WRONG by not informing customers that a) the company was slowing down some iPhones, b) customers could have replaced the battery. I am an Apple customer, but I think it’s ugly what they did, acting in the shadows

Posted in: Media get first look at construction of maglev line station at Shinagawa See in context

What you guys don’t get is that this construction is a global statement that Japan is still in the lead pack of countries holding ultra refined technologies that will matter in the 2050s. By then, the current Shinkansen line will turned into slower, local train service and this Maglev line will be the wonder of transport that other countries will admire and respect

Make a home experiment: put your hand under a led lamp. You will feel that despite the bulb is not warm, the light it emits does make your skin feel hot. It emits UV rays. I wonder what damage led lights can cause in the long run to environment and people,
