Great.... so I can leave the Country, but cant return to my home, so will be left homeless... nice one Japan.

Japan really seriously needs to think how it treats its permanent residents - tax us to hell and back, but doesnt give us representation. This is not a democracy.

Yes, they're totally right. The virus is going to kill off all the Union members, if they ignore it.

BTW - the opening sentence should be changed from :

From the sweatshops in the UK to the warehouses of Cambodia

Posted in: Lawyers: Trump might claim harassment in tax return quest See in context

It does appear to be a single track harassment. Why should he have to reveal his Tax returns ? If he has to, then why not make everyone's publicly available and free to access via a Government web site ?

Posted in: Virus testing centers may open in Sept at 3 airports See in context

Taking your temperature would be a Pointless exercise for Tourists.

Take a look at the Fishing boat in Argentina, out at sea for 35 days, but cuts the trip short due to the crew falling ill due to the Corona virus for which they'd been tested before leaving.

Part of the problem is Testing does not appear to be picking up those who have just become infected. Just like HIV, you cant detect it a day or two after becoming infected, but you need to wait for it to get hold first, and then, if you're unlucky it's too late.

Posted in: U.S. brands China claims in South China Sea illegal See in context

@Sh1mon M4sada - totally agree with you, however China didnt adhere to that ruling, and has essentially already started the war with the Corona virus release, which, we will shortly hear, was released from a Lab in China - that rumor has been circulating now for sometime, saying that the source of the information was from some Scientists who'd escaped from China... now only this week, do we see those said Scientists being briefly interviewed by the Media... it's started. Just where will it finish ?

White Supremacy has got no place in today's Society.

Those who preach it are hardly Supreme - neither Athletically nor Mentally.... Challenged perhaps be a more appropriate choice of Word.

That said, Focusing upon one race or religion or gender, over another should also not be promoted. Equality, however would be a far more useful goal for such energies.

Conincidentally.... (maybe) 119 is the magic telephone number in case of Emergencies requiring Fire/Ambulance services too!

I did a bit of background reading into Home Brewing here in Japan, apparently back in 2018 it was illegal... so I'm guessing it still is. :(

@BertieWooster - Interesting opinion. I've always found Sapporo to lack beer taste but Asahi super-dry to have some resemblance to beer. I guess my sense of taste is different from yours, which is fine - each being distinctive is in part what makes us all unique. Do you like the non-alcohol versions of Sapporo, etc ?

Anyone tried home-brewing here in Japan ? Your thoughts and recommendations would be welcomed.

Posted in: Big four Japanese brewers post first-half sales drop See in context

Japanese Beer pretty much all tastes the same.

You essentially have Asahi Beer, and Yebisu - the rest are sadly not distinctive. And @Kurisu, that includes Orion... no idea why it exists.

I'd welcome local companies attempting to be more experimental in taste, but sadly it seems, they just want to copy each other as presumably thats what the public want...

As to the non-alcohol beers, Asahi is by far the closest to their actual beer taste.

Just whilst I'm here on the subject... Chinese [mainland] beer, is also pretty lousy. Snow brand for example, its probably safer than drinking the local tap water, and cheap too, but makes even the worst of Japanese beers look incredibly good.

@zichi et al.

The problem is, if you're a poor village Farmer whose Family has been farming the land for decades, Government officials can seize that land for their own purposes if you can not prove that you really own that land... which sadly most can't.
