Either the government officials are all incompetent or they were telling an untruth? Its a question.

Intelligence tells me that to ignore what comes out of China in any form, is the best route to take given their history of telling the world the opposite of the truth.

What ever new information on the CoronaVirus is, there is no need to reconsider or to actually think about what is really happening because we would like to make a lot of money. Is that what the headline means?

In a country where nannies and babysitters are uncommon....

Is it because its difficult to grasp the idea of a babysitter and / or nanny?

Just a thought. Stop the Chinese from entering Japan and put everyone who was in China in quarantine?

It would have been smart if the Japanese Government blocked all Chinese visitors from coming to Japan like America did. Thoughts?

"Forcing them would be a violation of individual rights."

Michael said:

In Japan, there is a thing called " Group-ism " The Japanese culture demands that we think of the group and not the individual. So, violation of individual rights? Really?

Posted in: Chinese people are useless at private commercial companies because their performance is poor. We wouldn't invite applicants for job interviews in the first place if it turned out they were Chinese. We'd reject them at the stage of document screening. See in context

From what I experienced, Chinese people are hard working, wonderful at math, tend to do a great job at what ever they do in most cases, and are very intelligent. So, I am not sure what world Shohei Ohsawa san is living in. Not one of reality.

I agree. We need to understand his state of mind and what he was feeling and how he operates so that we can deal with this in the classrooms and within the family unit. We need to study and learn from this instead of just placing him in detention. What he did was terrible. But, a product of society?

Posted in: Japan tells embassies risk of contaminated Fukushima water 'small' See in context

This article indicates that it will not harm humans. But am I wrong when I say that humans eat fish and things that live in the Pacific Ocean? Seems over time, and correct me if Im wrong, a human may be affected by the damage that pouring un-natural water into our eco-system may cause? And if the fish and the little things in the ocean as well as the big things plus a human or two are damaged by what the Japanese Government wants to do with this [ water-ish poison ], can Global Governments and International Individuals take the Japanese Government to the International Courts? Or can we do it now if it is done? Where is Green Peace on this?
