My advice is to spice things up and talk about climate change.

I’m sure Rudy has even more dirt on the House Democrats not including Hillary that that would cover the entire Sahara.

Bring it on, then. Trump and his minions are in panic-mode. Basically, half of America is stupid and gullible.

Oh, and Eric, remember what happened to the last person who was shouting Lock him/her up?

Posted in: JR East abolishes skirts, ribbons in women’s uniforms to eliminate gender difference See in context

I've never understood why women (whether young or old) are forced to wear mini-skirts at some places like supermarkets, airlines, stations, etc, and yet men aren't forced to wear shorts. I like the fourth photo - they both wear the same hats. The usual hat for the women just seems awful and inferior to the men's.

Sponsorship money was never part of the reason, I'm sure!

oldman_13:

Many people in Japan celebrate her accomplishments.

Exactly. Like her Japanese grandfather. He supports Osaka and loves her and her money. (Although, before she became rich and famous, he wanted nothing to do with her or her parents, but let's not get into specifics here.)

yubaru:

Renho is not a case to be using here really, as she is an elected politician, not a world-class tennis player! The laws are quite specific regarding elected officials!

As many Australian politicians found out, the hard way.

Absolutely mind-boggling, these decisions. As some have said, several years in the making, and the organizers had no contingency plans? Don't tell me, they never knew typhoons could strike Japan?

What would have happened if these matches were in the knock-out stages? What if it were a NZ-Japan final (yes, far-fetched, I know, but just an example)? Would they cancel it, give both teams two points, and say they're both winners?

When many people are learning your language and you make little effort to learn theirs, you are at a disadvantage.

Maybe Trump can offer asylum to the 10,000 ISIS members. He can put them up in Mar-a-Lago.

Posted in: Naomi Osaka picks Japanese citizenship with eye on Olympics: NHK See in context

Osaka, who has a Japanese mother and a Haitian father, told NHK she has completed an administrative step to obtain Japanese citizenship ahead of her birthday next week.

I don't get it. She's had Japanese nationality since birth. What administrative step is this? I don't see or read anything about renouncing American citizenship anywhere.

Posted in: Thief steals $840,000 watch from Japanese man's wrist in Paris See in context

Thanks but no thanks. I'll stick to either my cheap CASIO watch or basic smartwatch. I'll never understand the 'joys' of wearing a really expensive watch. I'd rather use my money for meals in a nice restaurant, or holidays, or gifts for relatives. To each his own.

Abe to meet 50 foreign guests during enthronement ceremony

Sounds as if Abe is the one getting crowned. Well, he'd like to think he is.

A shame his favourite golfing buddy/master isn't coming. He'll have to settle with Mrs Moscow Mitch.

Posted in: Nobel laureate Yoshino craves more research discoveries See in context

What the THREE researchers developed was so important because it enabled us to have things we now take for granted, like light laptops and small smartphones. Anyway, glad that Kyodo mentioned the two other gaijin winners' names, buried somewhere in the middle of the article.

Posted in: Red meat unhealthy? Maybe not, researchers say See in context

andrew:

Forget about the vegan fad, the Japanese eat some of the fattest cuts of meat in the world and yet have some of the healthiest long lives of anyone. Western diets are full of the lowest fat content cuts of meat and yet cardiovascular problems are extremely high.

https://www.wcrf.org/dietandcancer/cancer-trends/stomach-cancer-statistics.

Stomach cancer. Number three: Japan.

A big gap between number 3 and number 4, China.

I think people from countries 1 and 2 eat a pretty large amount of meat too.

The Continuous Update Project Panel judged there is strong evidence that greater body fatness and consumption of alcoholic drinks and foods preserved by salting are causes of stomach cancer. There is some evidence that consumption of processed meat and grilled or barbecued meat and fish, and low consumption of fruit, might increase the risk of stomach cancer. There is some evidence that consumption of citrus fruit might decrease the risk of stomach cancer.

tala:

My mom is 92. Loves meat. Healthy. I see more sick people who are vegetarians or fish eaters.

How about giving statistics based on 10,000 vegetarians and 10,000 meat eaters? What next, your mom smokes too?

Can they also tell us the location of 'wide' people? I prefer to have 100% of my own seat, not just 80%.

It has been hugely popular in the whole Europe (except for the UK I think)

I'm not surprised. I don't think Brits fall for all this kawaii stuff, unless they're 8-year old girls. I think they went for the Swiss-German series starring Katia Polletin. Get it straight from the original country.
