Posted in: Nearly 50% of Japan's singles have no dating prospects: gov't survey See in context

Another problem in Japan, is exemplified by what we see in the Photo here.

The Girl has a Girlish rucksack, but the boy... he has a shoulder handbag... not a satchel, a shoulder slung handbag... Prada perhaps ? And notice the fluffy whats-it he has hanging off the handle strap - I guess this is modern day Feminate man.... does that really appeal to Women ? He's not alone sadly... I wonder if the Japan SDF has problems recruiting - or do they allow everyone to carry Lipstick ?

Posted in: Japan revises law to ban parents from physically punishing children See in context

If you're a smart crafty kid, you couldl blackmail your Parents by saying that you'll tell your Teacher that you're getting hit at home... what will happen next ? Police come around, then you end up with a Criminal record lessening your chances of Employment or even having you kicked out of the Country ?

I think Japan has better things to focus upon at present, such as the swelling numbers in its detention centers and the deaths there - than trying to criminalize parenthood.

Sex is great!

The Complications of having Kids in Japan... is not..... the J-Gov hasn't quite figured this out yet.

So It's with little wonder, that they're trying to bring back overseas Japanese Kids ... but for what prospect ?

There's a few things that need to change here. Notably, a bunch of old "Farts" need to be retired from Government quickly - ... Abe that's you too... and replaced with some more pragmatic people who will be more open to the modern populace about their actions. (AND, which doesn't the Right winger's driving around in black buses... so stop supporting them please... that's been a complete waste of Government money - and during the forthcoming Sporting events will completely "FUBAR" Modern Japan's attempts at being seen distant days of past.... Yes, they ARE supported by our Tax Payers Money!!!!).

I've nothing against elder statesmen/women, though both camps are apparently corrupt and completely inept. So where do you go to ?

Marriage should never be bought nor sold neither religiously nor Politically. Whoever or Whatever supports such an arrangement, needs to be called out to question and support their stance - particularly upon the international movement of peoples front.

So if I accidentally "watch" a video of a dog eating some dog food product I will be instantly and forever associated as being a dog lover !?

This is ever the more reason to unplug your "account" from your "internet" activity.

Just imagine in today's world - "Malcom X looking at a KKK home page for research" and having his profile updated to being "White Supremacist".... this is what Facebook does.

Switch to TOR Browser.

China wont let her resign - she has so much mainland personal assets at stake to do so arbitrarily. The HK Legislative council is a "puppet" Government, and HK'ers know that.. so hopefully between now, and 30 years hence forth, the CCP will fail and give rise to hope for the future of those who call themselves Chinese at heart.

Posted in: Boeing crisis, trade tensions cast pall over air show See in context

Historically Boeing is a rather an untrust-worthy company.

They are supported by the US Government for Military contracts

but Civilian work takes second place - the 737 series is not without problems - and even then, their Defense work is ... questionable too.

If you are Patriotic, then you should look closer at these "Defense" contractors and ask yourselves... are they just screwing the "Country for the ride" to inflate their profits ?

Airbus, is also not without fault.

One has to wonder, whether when so much emphasis is put upon Computer systems, that you have to question why there is no What to do if you suspect a "Computer Error/Failure" scenario in the manual ?

Posted in: Airbus delivers first A350 to Japan See in context

You only need to watch NG's MayDay Series to understand that New Models of Aircraft are susceptible to problems, and the Regulators job is to identify and fix them.

Boeing 737 when it came out had 2 fatal crashes due to a Rudder issue, so now the 737 Max has also sadly added 2 more to that brand's fatality list.

I think we need to do better on our "testing" Before rather than After crash events. Boeing's being in bed with the FAA has not helped and changes need to be made to both, or one should go.

Posted in: Operator of tanker says sailors saw 'flying objects' just before attack See in context

Trump has clearly sided with the Israelites and the Saudis within the region. Though, the real focus of Trump is upon China - Iran is a side-show which can be dealt with locally. The US merely providing the evidence to justify actions by it's partnered Nations.

China however... that is, the main focus of the US under Trump. New restrictions upon capital flows of wealthy Chinese individuals are coming into place, and an review of where existing Chinese nationals based in the US obtained their finances is already underway. Xi's family is without exemption in these investigations ... this is the one to watch. The Communist party in China may soon find it's own Corruption drive facing inward and lead it its own sudden demise - something summed up by a TV interview with a HK resident - who simply said they "felt patriotic towards China, but not towards the Communist party"... I think that says it all.

Posted in: Hong Kong leader suspends controversial extradition bill after protests See in context

The bill should have focused upon partnership in prosecution over specific offenses - such as murder, rather than simply extradition. Take the crime that the young adult was accused of in Taiwan, had there been a partnership between both HK and Taiwan to share the details and if he could be tried in HK for his Crimes in Taiwan, then surely that would be better than simply shipping him off to Taiwan or elsewhere.
