Posted in: Starbucks to close 8,000 U.S. stores for racial tolerance training See in context

Looking at that Video, the Black guys were refusing to cooperate with the Policeman's request, the discussions became a bit tense, Police backup was called in too. An arrest was the only course of action - what else would you have expected to happen ?

If a Policeman asks you to do something (be it right or wrong), and you argue back at him/her, regardless of which Country you're in, or what race you are, you're likely to be getting yourself into trouble.

Where will this all go ?

Will it end up meaning that from now, you can sit within any Starbucks shop for any length of time without being challenged and asked to buy something ?

Posted in: Watchdog confirms UK findings on nerve agent in Russia spy case See in context

In an executive summary made public at Britain's request, it said "the toxic chemical was of high purity" but did not name it.

That information and details about its structure would be in a classified report shared with OPCW signatories, it said.

Why ?

All we've been given so far is Boris Johnson's statement that it was Novichok and from Russia, and the Scientists saying it was of the Novichok class, but that they couldn't identify it's source....

Guilt by association ?

Posted in: Trump weighs Syria options; Russia envoy says 'cannot exclude' war See in context

I too think we should leave Syria alone, though May, Trump and Macro appear to have their own home agenda's for which a little distraction would be helpful.... (though hopefully not going so far as to start WWW3!).

These tinpot Dictators keep some sort of stability within the region, without them we see Religious nuts like the Islamic extremists coming in, Russia probably realized that and came to the aid of Syria, of course... there's something in it for them too... a port/base within the Mediterranean Sea.

At least there is an Organisation that draws our attention to such "issues" within Countries, issues that may otherwise just go unreported, and for doing so, regardless whether or not those Countries are for renown for not listening. So Congratulation Amnesty for showing us that Japan isn't so squeaky clean in comparison to other Nations. Hopefully, Japan will, unlike some other Countries nearby, admit that it could do a better job and seek to improve the situation.

I wonder if someone is looking to buy that location and rebuild a new store ? It's value must certainly have dropped overnight.

Posted in: Zuckerberg faces 'Grandpa' questions from lawmakers See in context

Having all that data stored about your every aspect of Life, who your friends are, where you've been during the day, even what ailments you've had in the past, is a bit concerning. Future employers will start profiling you based upon this information - they dont need full access, just need to ask Y/N response type questions to Facebook based upon your ID. Similarly US Homeland security..... asking for your Social Media IDs. Just imagine if all comments ever made here in JapanToday, and anywhere else, were linked back to your Facebook profile... what then ? Japan has its PPI Law, which sort of flies in the face of facebook and all this tying up of your data to something that can personally identify yourself, and the haphazard way that information has been made available to others..... why isnt Japan demanding Facebook execs to come here ?
