I hope it works for Abe san because he needs a win at this point. Let's call this one the 4th arrow.

Depression can take over the mind quickly and people do things that they would not normally do otherwise. In Japan, there are not many ways to get help if suffering from depression. I hear.

I wonder what was in this mans mind? I mean, did he thing this through to the end? I mean, what would happen if I attempted plan A from beginning to end? What is the end result? It's basic MBA stuff for any person in a management role. Am I right?

I have talked to a few doctors and they all say that the mask does not work 100% but it is just a layer of protection that they hope will work. You know how it is here. If you look like you are doing something then everyone thinks you are doing something. In this case, if you wear a mask, you look like you are either sick and trying to protect others or you are trying to keep from getting sick. I have NOT ever worn a mask and I have not been sick in over five years now. Why? I eat fruites and vegetables every morning. Have not been sick in over five years now.

That's a good idea. We don't want any risk in Japan.

Posted in: Japan announces new sanctions against North Korea See in context

It's all SOUND BITES because Japan and all the countries who are worried about NK can not do anything about what they are doing. Sanctions have not worked with NK since the beginning. So, to keep the constituents happy, the leaders have to say something to make it appear that they are indeed actually doing something. Which is nothing.

My guess is who ever is stealing them thought of a way to sell them in some way.

In Japan, the lawyers do not work cases like they do in America. In Japan, the lawyers are really good with paperwork. Not much in terms of trail law.

Posted in: 71-year-old man held for slashing 4 family members in Nagano See in context

Not all, but most Japanese families do not really like each other very much. They are distant from each other and do not talk to each other about what is really on their minds. I've been here for 15 year now. I have seen it. Heard it. And been involved with it.

Posted in: 16-year-old girl arrested for beheading classmate in Sasebo See in context

Her mother died recently. Her father remarried recently. The 16 year old girl came from a very rich family. She lived alone. Was she spoiled by her parents? Did the fact that her mother die and her father remarry so soon have anything to do with this? Probably. However, I call her a bad seed.

Japanese guys love cute and young. The cuter the better and the younger the better. I like my women around my age. Call me old fashioned, but that's how I was brought up to think.

Posted in: No. of reported stalking, domestic abuse cases in first half of year highest ever See in context

I would think that after hearing about how ineffective the Japanese police are, the women who are being stalked do not go to the police for help. If you read the news out of Japan and how many women were killed even after reporting it to the Japanese police, you will see that there is a large number of victims who depended on them and the Japanese police did nothing to assist them. So, this in my mind and in the minds of many other people here in Japan, is not true.
