Posted in: Ukraine-born Miss Japan relinquishes crown after reported affair See in context

Ultimately this Miss Japan title was meaningless, since the winner of this pageant does not represent Japan at the Miss Universe competition (there is a separate Miss Universe Japan contest).

Good, the whole thing seemed very shady from the start.

Not mentioned is that this was not just about an affair, but that doctor/influencer had sway on the judging as well.

Sends the wrong message and clearly a sympathy vote due to her background.

With that being said, when is the last time you saw a fully White woman or one with mixed Black heritage be chosen to represent China or South Korea? That seems to counter the tired old stereotypes of 'racist' and 'xenophobic' Japanese.

Amazing how quickly some of the most vocal critics of the Japanese judicial system now suddenly become fans of it due to the death penalty.

My thoughts and prayers.

I am heartened at all the majority positive comments from people online. A far, far cry from how it was after the 3/11 quake and tsunami.

How many more innocent people must be seriously hurt and killed by old drivers before serious action is taken? Anyone above 62 should have mandatory annual health and vision screenings if they want to continue to drive. After 70 no one should be allowed to drive.

It's interesting that the world media doesn't seem to focus much on how and why Hamas even came to such power in the Gaza. It was none other than Netanyahu who pitted Hamas against Abbas and the PLO because he did not want Palestinian independence. And Netanyahu horribly miscalculated as Hamas was able to overcome the PLO in influence and power among Palestinians.

Posted in: About half of Chinese worried about Fukushima water release: poll See in context

The surprise here is that it wasn't more than half of Chinese.

Remember that these are a people that ignore its own countries absolutely dismal record on environmental issues. Their very own government that pollutes its own waterways, overfishes stocks around the world.

Posted in: U.S. envoy: China's reaction to Fukushima water release is economic coercion See in context

Some of the Chi-comm owned news websites are truly comical. Some of them have obviously fake news articles about Japanese politicians drinking Fukushima water and then dying. The anti-Japan crowd online have no shame or decency in their misinformation campaign. A lot of them make outrageous claims not backed by any real science. How ironic it is those that are loudest to criticize others of whitewashing history are the biggest such offenders.

Posted in: Kishida, 3 ministers eat Fukushima fish to show it's safe See in context

The fish from Fukushima waters is a million times safer than anything you can eat off the coast of Hong Kong or any inland rivers throughout China. This hysteria from China and South Korea over Fukushima waters is the most dumbest thing ever, considering both release way more tritium from their power plants in a year compared to what Fukushima will be doing in a decade. So utterly stupid.

Posted in: China and Japan's long history of strained ties See in context

Yawn, yet another tired journalistic hit piece on Japan that has to bring up irrelevant issues about past wartime actions to frame the current Fukushima water release nonsense.

Now you have ignorant Chinese citizens harassing random Japanese citizens by calling their phone numbers, and someone in Beijing threw a rock at the Japanese embassy.

Bunch of ignorant hypocrites.

Posted in: China's allies lead Pacific criticism of Fukushima water release See in context

China, the world's worst polluters of the oceans and environment, depleted fishing stock after fishing stock around the world and engaging in hostile actions in new fishing territories, their own rivers and waters so polluted by waste that many cannot even drink from it, sees fit to grandstand against Japan releasing tritium into the oceans, something China itself does on a scale far larger from its own power plants.

Posted in: Japan eyes aid for fisheries hit by China's seafood import ban See in context

Yes, but their ALPS filtration system actually filtered out the other radiative isotopes, unlike the Japanese made Tepco ones.

Spoken like a true CCP mouthpiece. The ALPS at Fukushima filters out 62 other radionuclides outside of tritium. This is the internet, and people need to understand that anything can be confirmed or debunked with a few minutes of simple online searching. Just stating opinions without any basis in fact doesn't cut it.

Posted in: Japan eyes aid for fisheries hit by China's seafood import ban See in context

In 2018, the Fuqing nuclear power plant in China released 52 trillion bq of tritium discharge into the oceans, which is THREE times the amount of estimated tritium discharge being released from Fukushima over a decade.

China's fishing fleet has so depleted its own coastal waters that it has enaged in a worldwide operation of fishing in other nation's territories. Even the famed Galagapos Islands near Ecuador is not safe from Chinese fishing patrols. The Yangtze river is one of the world's largest contributors of plastic waste into the oceans. The rivers throughout China are so polluted that many citizens do not even have safe drinking water. The list goes on and on, yet Chinese officials and their brainwashed citizens want to grandstand about how Japan is destroying the world's oceans?

Unbelievable even by their low standards.

Posted in: South Korean protesters call for government action on Fukushima water See in context

So ridiculous as always, these people will immediately flip out the protest signs and gather en masse outside anytime they feel slighted by Japan. What a petty, insecure bunch.

In South Korea, one of the world’s most prominent nuclear energy countries, the nuclear power facilities have been regularly releasing tritium-infused wastewater into the sea near the city of Pusan (Busan), which is famed for its seafood products. Noting that fact, nuclear power experts find Seoul’s opposition “lacks any scientific basis.”

(In 2018, the South Korean Kori nuclear power plants released 50 trilling bq of tritium into their waters)

Posted in: Fukushima nuclear plant operator says released water samples within safe limits See in context

The ignorance of the anti Japan crowd never fails to impress. Two countries who release wastewater with double the amount of tritium per year than what is being released at Fukushima, crying about destruction of the world's oceans and food supplies.

And the duplicitous SK government in fact did not fully endorse this plan. Last month they did agree that it was safe, but as expected the cowardly government is now trying to have it both ways by saying they believe it is safe but they don't necessarily agree with it.

Posted in: Among Japan's neighbors, fear and frustration over radioactive water release See in context

Just a question. Would you go swimming and diving near the Fukushima waste water dumping site? Or eating the freshly catch fish near there?

Yes or no?

question, would you go swimming in or eat any fish from the polluted Yangtze river, Chinese farm fisheries, or where tritium is released from Chinese power plants?

Posted in: Among Japan's neighbors, fear and frustration over radioactive water release See in context

In response to the release, China banned seafood from Japan. Ministry of Commerce spokesperson Shu Jueting called the discharge “extremely selfish and irresponsible” and said it would "cause damage and harm to the global marine environment that cannot be predicted.”

This has to be the most ludicrous thing ever said. A nation that is notorious for polluting the environment with industrial waste and for illegal fishing methods that destroy the ecosystems, among others. And releasing more tritium into their waters per year.

Of course both China and South Korea never let any opportunity to demonize Japan go by, so this was not unexpected. Both petty countries cannot stand to see people worldwide embrace Japanese culture so they'll stoop to any lows.

Posted in: China bans all Japanese seafood imports after Fukushima water release See in context

It's ridiculous reading all the hysterical anti-Japanese comments on various websites. China, while grandstanding about the health of the world's oceans, abuses the oceans like no other nations with their illegal fishing and things like illegal shark finning.

Chinese power plants released in one year more tritium containing water from their power plants than what is being released gradually over 10 years by the Fukushima plant. All this outrage and grandstanding is nothing but manufactured outrage to further anti-Japan hysteria.

Posted in: Fukushima nuclear plant begins releasing treated radioactive water into sea See in context

Fukushima waste water, being gradually released over 10 years, still contains less tritium than wastewater from Chinese and South Korean power plant waste water combined.
