Floating farms sounds like good use for the space, I only hope all the measures for minimizing the environment impact will work fine.

Posted in: Rare whale meat barbecue restaurant in Osaka spreads food culture See in context

There is not one single good reason to hunt and eat whales. "That is the way we did things in the past", simply won't do it. We, as humans, did a lot of bad things in the past mostly for lack of knowledge or punishment. Now we know how you hunt the whales and dolphins and we care about them. Leave them alone. If you say that is fine because that is how people here were brought up, might I suggest you also take a look a how the disparities of gender liberties in the Middle East, the men there use that same argument.

Posted in: Kindergarten teachers taped child’s hands and feet for discipline See in context

Hey as a parent of a 5 year old, I would be really mad to know that my kid was treated in this matter by a teacher BUT, and that is a really important but, I would be really angry to learn that my kid was being beat up by another student and the teachers did nothing. Don't take me wrong, I still think what they did and how they treated this kid was horrendous but at least they did something.

Shame! I won't ever understand the desire to kill dolphins.

Tv news last night said that the girl was speeding and she crashed into the guy. Either way a sad story out of what it was supposed to be a fun day.

Posted in: Japan says whaling fleet will set sail on Tuesday See in context

Why??? There seems to be no reasonable explanation for this. People don't want the meat, it is seen a crime against nature by other countries and a good chunk of the Japanese population as well and it is so expensive, tax money is used to cover expenses.

Speechless! I know a lot of young people here that are clueless for just about everything, but it pains me to learn how far it goes.

"...And do NOT come to Japan!" was implicit in the message. Open arms would be a lot more help to both Japan and the refugees than a ton of money to shady governments.

Great info indeed, just went for a weekend stay. Really nice place and the people are so friendly. Traffic was a little slower than I expected and the weather swings were interesting but all in all it was a really good place to visit!

Sure sure they will be in their teens or young adults and deniability will be rampant at the time, that is if tepco has not changed names by then. One of the problems is the amount of time that will pass until people learn there is something wrong.

"wasps attacked them at around 7:30 a.m., Fuji TV reported." This is what living in a safe country means: wasp attack with no serious injuries gets on national news!

I think that when Japan finally starts to consider immigration as a possibility, the country will be so far down the drain, people will not want to come here anymore. Very sad outlook!

Posted in: U.S. drops atomic bombs on Japan in 1945: How AP reported it See in context

It seems really hurtful, the way it is portrayed on the other side of the war but remember that the war machine is much too complex to sum it up in one paragraph but we all know that a great part of it is propaganda. The way it is portrayed is not only to boost morale in the country but to sway international public opinion and somehow make the Japanese government to give in. Here too, it seems there was a crucial delay of information, that most people rather think it was really how long it took to access the damage instead of the uncertainty of how to act in face of this new and already feared threat. So in times of war, the media is only one more tool in the hands of the governments.

Posted in: 5 interview questions employers in Japan are no longer allowed to ask See in context

As someone who interviews a lot of people whenever I need new employees these are ok, but trying to screen people to work in a small company where one person effort of lack there of, has a big impact on your business, makes you try your best to select the right candidate. But family background doesn't play a big role in it as opposed to lifestyle. You can tell a lot about the person if you have a little insight into the person lifestyle.

Posted in: More details emerge about horror car crash in Hokkaido See in context

I agree it is a sad story all around. But it does not take away the fact that these 2 "tough" guys' joyride killed 4 people! It is going to need more than a sad story to make me feel bad for them. Most people suffer as a child, it does not make them killers. I bet if you could ask them, on that same night while they were drinking, if they saw themselves as victims of abuse, the answer would be NO!
