Fighto!Today  03:48 pm JST “ The organisers of this "fight", those who sanctioned it, and the two "fighters" are making an absolute farce out of the sweet science. The sad thing is there are likely a few old school Tyson fans out there who actually believe it is a legitimate fight. 

And you can be sure if sells well, there will be a Part 2. “

Posted in: Premier League in the U.S.? FIFA weighs allowing overseas games See in context

Today  11:09 am JST

Can’t see English football fans allowing it - there will be huge opposition to it much like there was to the planned European super league - another stupid money making plan that was scuppered because fans hated the idea

“ Yes, English football is primarily about English supporters - their hometown clubs. The Premier League businesspeople often need reminding of that fact. 

Man U v Liverpool is played at Old Trafford or Anfield in the Premier League. The atmosphere and the rivalry in the stadiums is part of it - this is tribalism. Same for Real Madrid V Barcelona.

Playing it abroad in front of a crowd of bandwagon jumpers would cheapen it. This isn’t some empty franchise nonsense. 

Supporters from other countries can watch the finest sport in the world from the finest leagues in the world on TV. If they want to pay a fortune to come to England or Spain to watch a game - knock yourself out. Problem solved.

..

Fans outside England would embrace this rare opportunity.

To be blunt, who cares what they would like?

..

To be blunt, who cares what they would like?

I'm fairly sure the clubs do!

You are looking at this from the wrong perspective. 

The ‘clubs’, or rather the owners, have screwed over the supporters and faced a backlash. From attempting to bugger off and form a super league to jacking up ticket prices. The club you jumped on the bandwagon of saw supporters getting together and pressuring the club on ticket prices. 

It’s long overdue that the supporters are listened to more. “

Well said, Jimizo, well said.

Actually, it’s not about percentages or how much green space you have, it’s about how you make use of it. And do you really wanna compare Tokyo to Paris or any other European city? Smh.

To the other poster: I’ve been living here for longer than that. Maybe you should go out more(?)—enjoy the countless parks and gardens that this city has. One last question: do you know how many people live in Tokyo?

Long story short, I’ve been following Koike’s work (and what the TMG hopes to accomplish in the next few years) and, imho, (she’s not perfect but) she’s not the villain you guys think she is.

From what I’ve been hearing, he’s being tortured by Trump’s lawyers. Poor guy, huh?

Gaetz later posted a photo on social media of him standing behind Trump in court, with the words, “Standing back, and standing by, Mr. President.” That is a phrase that the Proud Boys, an extremist group whose leaders were convicted of seditious conspiracy after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, have used since Trump, during a 2020 campaign debate, said: “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by.”

Nice phrase, indeedI mean, whatever it takes to bring down the monster that wants to swallow and destroy Western Civilization.

"We are disappointed by the Court's decision but are complying with its removal order," YouTube said in a statement, saying it shared human rights groups' concerns that the content ban could chill free expression online.

“ But obviously not "disappointed" or "concerned" enough to pull out of totalitarian China, so your words mean nothing.

Any company that does business in China is helping the CCP oppress the people of not only China, but the world. Alphabet et al are part of the problem. “

A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman has said that stopping the song's spread was necessary for Hong Kong to safeguard national security.

“ The CCP is scared of a song. Just shows its insecurity, and how much it fears the people. “

Posted in: Around 68,000 elderly die alone in Japan annually: police See in context

tjguyToday  08:52 am JST “ Where in the world are their families?! I thought Japan was a country that respected and cared for their elderly people. “

That’s still true… and maybe that’s part of the problem… maybe that’s why they end up alone. The amount of respect and consideration that you need to show for older people in this country can be unhealthy. If you feel and act like everyone owns you something, you’re probably a difficult, annoying person—difficult people can be hard to deal with.

Also, generally speaking, Japanese parents have very high expectations for their kids and not everyone can meet those expectations. Some people need to ask themselves why they are alone and why, in some cases, their own families don’t want to be with them. That’s why I said what I said in my previous post. But, of course, some people are just lonely.

“ The police agency is expected to continue collecting the data as part of government efforts to tackle the issue, “

If you wanna tackle this issue, ask the right questions—why were they alone(?), how did they end up like that(?).

“ A lonely death is defined as one in which a person dies without anyone else witnessing it, with a certain period passing before the body is found, “

Hard to find someone who’s completely alone in this world. There’s always someone out there. Even if your relatives are living in the city and you’re alone in inaka, there’s this thing called phone. It’s possible that more than half of these people didn’t get along with their sons and daughters. Again, ask the right questions.

Let me explain. When the time comes, in November, this political circus will be forgotten and people will choose what’s best for the country. You can say whatever you want about Donald Trump. What you can’t say is that Joe Biden is the right man to lead the nation. You can’t say that Trump isn’t a better choice. Millions of people (including you?) know this, they just don’t want to (or can’t(?)) admit it.

Take it easy, Joe, you’re not supposed to say it out loud, smdh. Seriously though, why criticize Japan (one of the closest, most important allies…), China, India and Russia and put them all in the same bag(?!)—doesn’t make sense; Japan is very unique and shouldn’t be compared to countries with an abysmal quality of life and less freedom. Is Japan xenophobic? I don’t know if that question can be answered with a yes or no. What I do know is that Japan is one of the (very) few countries left in the world where you can actually feel safe, where you can truly feel like you’re living in one of the best countries in the world—draw your own conclusions.

Posted in: 'Civil War' might be year's most explosive movie, but director thinks it's just reporting See in context

StrangerlandToday  11:30 am JST

From what I’ve been hearing, the trailer ismisleading

“ It's not misleading at all. The trailer doesn't imply whether the war was started by the right or the left, due to race, or due to income inequality, which contrary to being misleading, is exactly in line with the movie. Quite the opposite of misleading.

Some viewers of the trailer may have misled themselves. “

I mean, some people felt like they were watching real life when they saw the trailer (btwtrailers are not supposed to reveal too much and I’ve gotta say, I think it was pretty clever the way they put it together, they wanted people to talk about it—that’s their job, right?).

And when you see Jesse Plemons say What kind of American (or Americans, I don’t remember), you think of what’s going on in the US right now and how it does NOT have a southern border and it’s almost like you’re watching a documentary (unless you’re living under a rock).

Posted in: 'Civil War' might be year's most explosive movie, but director thinks it's just reporting See in context

From what I’ve been hearing, the trailer is misleadingthis movie is not what some people think it is. This article confirms that.

While there have been online murmurings questioning the appropriateness of the timing for “Civil War,” controversy hasn’t yet clung to it. That might be owed to Garland’s approach. There are few direct allusions to the deepest fissures of American politics today in the film. Joining Texas and California together removes any “blue state” vs. “red state” dichotomy. Neither race nor income inequality appear as issues of division. The president's political party is unspecified.

We were all thinking the same thing after we saw (the always great, always cool) Jesse Plemons ask “What kind of American?” but anyway, the reviews are goodcan’t wait to watch this (anyone knows when we can watch this in Japan?).

Posted in: Judge warns Trump over juror intimidation; 7 jurors picked for trial See in context

Only about one-third of U.S. adults say Trump did something illegal in the hush money case for which jury selection began Monday. And they're fairly skeptical that Trump is getting a fair shake from the prosecutors in the case – or that the judge and jurors can be impartial in cases involving him.

3 in 10 Americans feel that any of the prosecutors who have brought charges against Trump are treating the former president fairly. And only about 2 in 10 Americans are extremely or very confident that the judges and jurors in the cases against him can be fair and impartial.

Posted in: Dozens of potential jurors at Trump hush money trial dismissed for bias See in context

Underscoring the difficulty, only about a third of the 96 people in the first panel of potential jurors remained after the judge excused some members. More than half the group was excused after telling the judge they could not be fair and impartial. At least nine more were excused after raising their hands when Merchan asked if they could not serve for any other reason.

A female juror was excused after saying she had strong opinions about Trump. Earlier in the questionnaire, the woman, a Harlem resident, indicated she could be neutral in deciding the case. But when asked whether she had strong opinions about the former president, the woman answered matter-of-factly: "Yes."

When Merchan asked her to repeat the response, she replied: "Yeah, I said yes." She was dismissed.

Merchan has written that the key is "whether the prospective juror can assure us that they will set aside any personal feelings or biases and render a decision that is based on the evidence and the law."

Not an easy task. And he’s battling three other criminal indictments in Florida, Washington DC and Georgia and is appealing two further judgements against him in New York (that required him to post multimillion dollar bonds). And he will still be laughing at it in the end. I mean, this guy’s Superman, just let him go. These are all politically motivated anyway. Heheh.
