Stop subsidizing fossil fuel use! Use the money to cloak every south facing building in Japan with solar panels.

Posted in: Asian shares track Wall Street's inflation-fueled retreat See in context

After the initial inflation caused by energy price increases, there is always a long and deep recession. Deflation then kicks in. So, hold on to your cash. Buckle down. It's going to be a rollercoaster ride

All hail the great, and wonderful Musk! He who knoweth everything and must be quoted always, as if his views are those of an expert. Slow news day again I guess.

Posted in: Do you think the U.N. is dysfunctional when it comes to dealing with wars and other disputes between countries? See in context

No, because the purpose of the U.N is talk and not war. The power of veto was deliberately designed to facilitate this talk to always be able to happen as the world's power blocks could not gang up on each other. Anybody who has wanted fact free news about the war in Ukraine has been able to hear all the parties state their case at the U.N without having to rely upon Fox or Rupert Murdoch to filter that information. As such the U.N does a fantastic job of overcoming fake news and allowing all parties to express their view globally.

However, I do think the U.N should be allowed to put a price upon the head of dictators that continue to break U.N resolutions. So, the north Korean leader should have a price on his head. And anybody that arrests him so he can be tried in a U.N court, should be awarded a large sum of money by the U.N. Again though this would have to need all the great powers to vote for this without a veto.

Posted in: S Korea says North Korea test-fired missile from submarine See in context

Sanctions clearly haven't worked in dealing with the fascist dictator in North Korea. It's time to put a price on his head. Let nature take it's course.

Posted in: N Korean leader's sister warns of nuclear response if provoked by South See in context

Sanctions haven't worked with this country and it's fascist leaders. Therefore, the UN should put a price on the heads of rocket man and his sister. It's fair enough if they are threatening to nuke people. Whoever assassinates these monsters should be richly rewarded and celebrated as heroes.

Let me guess, more help for businesses and people with kids. No help for hardworking single people, or people that lost their jobs due to covid?

Posted in: Japan to see higher prices for food, daily goods from Friday See in context

These price rises are really going to pile on the misery for the millions of people who, due to covid, have lost their jobs and burnt through their savings.

West Taiwan needs to abandon it's uncivil attempts to boss everybody else about, and keep it's nose out of everybody else's business!

It's been cold today, so I've had the heating on at home all day. But just turned it off as we approach the 8 p.m mark. Have sorted a hot water bottle. Just waiting for my partner to arrive now so we can use the microwave for dinner. Then, I'm having an early night. Just hope the morons in charge of Japanese energy start producing more power via wind, solar, hydro, tidal and thermal backed up by battery. We shouldn't have to all risk nuclear disasters because Japan is dependent upon coal, gas and oil imports. Or suffer outages. Get it sorted please Japan!

Posted in: Smart devices spy on you: How the Internet of Things can violate your privacy See in context

Don't mind if they want to see me naked or whatever i am doing without the clothes. Just that don't be obsessed spying, you're just wasting your time.

If that is true why do you draw your curtains at night? And why don't you publish all your bank details online?

Be less paranoid and stop over-valuing your personal data.

Much data has no value and will never be examined by human beings or tech.

And yet burglars have already accessed smart devices to determine when a householder is away, and so determined the perfect time to break in. And blackmailers have accessed smart devices to listen into conversations, and to record videos and images.

You guys are very naive.

Posted in: Black hair, white shoelaces: Japan's school rules under fire See in context

Only a failing society cares more about student hair color than student bullying, and student suicide. Japan needs to reconsider it's priorities if it expects to be considered a modern democratic nation.

Posted in: Services open doors for minorities in Japan looking for housing See in context

Key money should be made illegal as should all the other hidden charges when one tries to rent a property in Japan. The rental price advertised should be the price paid, and not a yen more. A deposit of one months rent in advance should be the legal limit. Cleaning fees could be legally deducted from this deposit if the place isn't vacated in the same condition as when you moved in. And prejudice against anybody should be illegal too.

Gambling destroys lives, turns otherwise honest people into criminals, sucks the cash from society and enriches only the shareholders of casinos and bookmakers. It's an evil that should be heavily regulated, or banned completely.

Why not allow older people to stay in work if they want to? Stop scrapping people at 62. Let them earn their own money and defer their pension?

Posted in: White House accuses Russia of cyberattacks targeting Ukraine See in context

Putin is a guy with a very small sausage so something to prove, a criminal that murders his opponents and that is desperate to be a great dictator. Given we already know all this about him, why are people still defending his massive troop build up on the Ukraine border?

Posted in: Gov't bans construction firm from accepting foreign trainees after assault case See in context

Japan needs to stop sheltering it's bullies, and name and shame them instead. Bullying is clearly the dark, hidden face of Japanese culture. Shine a light on the bullies. Purify the scum people, and practices, that allow these terrible crimes to happen.

Posted in: Tesla's Musk condemned for Hitler tweet as he rips U.S. regulator See in context

Loads of people admire this union breaking, environment wrecking, anti vax moron. Why? Because he's rich.

He's not innovative. I had ten year old friends with more imaginative ideas than musk. But musk had rich parents, and can employ truly skilled and innovative people.

People worth admiring do things like rescue children from certain death that were lost in caves. Musk chooses to describe such people in the most derogatory terms.

The world would be such a better place without the narcissist Musk.

I'm glad this sinister shark has been snared. If he was lying about his age, he was probably going to lie about everything else too (like not having a wife). If he can't be honest with other people, he doesn't deserve to date them either. What a loser!

North Korea is the festering sore on China's public face. China is responsible for the belligerent mess on its border. As such sanctions should be directed at China too.

Possibly another sad, lonely person desperate for any kind of attention? Maybe he's been driven mad by the pandemic restrictions? Why doesn't the article give more information about his position in life? Doesn't Japan have the Samaritans? Did he try calling there first? Will he get the mental health support he clearly needs?

And despite all of this, Japan is switching it's old nuclear plants back on. Just how bad does it have to get before people recognise the costs of nuclear power always dramatically outweigh the benefits?
