You live at any major downtown part of any city like London, New York expect to pay higher Duh, and that wealthier people can live there! If you have a better job and make better money you can live anywhere you want! Geeze you people have such phobia and being such a wuss over anything expensive LOL If you dont have the money of course you cant afford it.

Those property owners I said are lazy plain and simple! Shame on them and shame on the people who don`t take action to do something about it!

Also look at the fact that some developer should give the area a good face lift Dallas, Texas does this well and realizes that turning an eyesore into something cool can be done for sure!

Dallas, Texas West Village and Uptown have been redeveloped, same goes for Shanghais Pudong district and Seouls Songdo area!

Posted in: What would you say are the main differences between the way the Japanese and foreign media are covering the aftermath of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami and the ongoing nuclear crisis? See in context

Also Japanese media is not very thorough, just delivers info and leaves out the details. No face to face discussions much, nobody expresses their opinions, no debates much either! Doesn`t have the fun stuff like the foreign media has so far.

Foreign media goes all out, thorough, and shows the details using video, models, charts, etc.. At least have people debating, arguing, expressing opinions more than just delivering information!

Japan media, although monotone and robotic at least it delivers No drama and calm despite the storms

Foreign media--drama, over sensitized, exaggerated, needs to chill out, at least has humanity in it and not so dang mechanical like Japanese media.

A very stupid idea NYT!

Newspapers (paper based) will be obsolete anyway someday soon and they have the nerve to charge a fortune for the online one? They lost their mind somewhere LOL

Just as silly as some online radio stations being blocked from from being listened to outside the U.S! Major bummer man

Posted in: Fears of health risks from radiation rise in Japan See in context

What about ITER fusion energy? That would be safer? And guessing radiation from fusion would be less since fusion concentrates the energy instead of fission? Then there`s the fast breeder reactor?

The radiation being blown by the wind is what`s worrisome though

I thought nuclear power plants were supposed to be built to withstand strong earthquakes?

Is there anything that would be better than nuclear power? There has to be something better! Fusion power like the ITER would be better since fusion stores enormous energy like the Sun maybe?

We are not trying hard enough!

Man aint that the truth! Like I said should really make the best out of this instead of just letting it sit there like an eyesore that it is!

Also, its time to make more babies...tired of the fact theres so few children out there, it`s so sad man! Enough of the BS for real!

Having a bunch on inept clowns like Krusty the Clown running the country worries me greatly! This Kan dude is not the right person we need in a crisis I don`t think

I very much fear for the future!

Just a matter of having the willpower to turn an eyesore into something amazing! Just spending the money where it counts and realizing the benefits one will receive! Like taking these abandoned homes and turning them into a nice variety of stores, homes, and even a park along with it! Etc... Like build a nice skateboard park A botanical garden or arboretum

That`s all

Complacency is also the cause of this and just plain ole laziness really! Landlords, owners or what have you who dont want to do the extra work or who dont bother to spend the extra money for a good cause or reason!

Low birthrate is also the leading cause of this

And these are places to make money if the land is sold and someone takes the initiative to make something good out of it! Someone has to make the money somewhere! Letting it rot or abandoned won`t make you any money

Donald Trump did it and hes rich Dallas, Texas has done it knocking down the old Texas Stadium and now are building a shopping center, restaurants, condos and apartments. Imagine Dallas leaving abadoned the old stadium LOL I dont think so! Someone`s not gonna sit there and let it go to waste!

And the low birthrate is very very much to blame for this! Sad!

And if that driving range closes, probably that driving range will just sit there to rot and sadly, so far, no one is willing to do something better in it`s place like a park, a stadium, something instead of letting it rot like a fool LOL

Even on some roads, the white markings etc... on the road need work but thanks to the lazy cats it creates a definite traffic danger of a situation!

And well since that driving range has rotted beyond mention, quit going there anymore and luckily found a better place that maintains itself a lot better! The other one is too lazy and chintsy to fix the place or anything sadly so he lost a customer was the result...bummer for him because of his lazyness he will go bankrupt someday probably.

No wonder it`s ugly and depressing around here...too poor or too lazybones to do something about it LOL

Why doesnt the lazy owner just sell off his land to someone else if hes too lazy to do anything about it? At the very least, hell make decent money doing so! Or the lazy land owner, who shouldnt be lazy, should make something good out of the land he or she owns or let someone else do something positive to that land!

Funny you brought that up, I know I go to a golf driving range and that place is deteriorating beyond mention but people still hit balls off it like oh well whatever LOL until the place falls down then maybe the owner of that place would take action to renovate the stinkin place LOL

Just neglect and aloof well guess what it will unfortunately invite nothing but headaches and trouble! People need to learn! Fault the education system for this poor and ill responsibility of people!

Posted in: Rise in number of empty houses a growing problem for Tokyo See in context

Why people just let things rot instead of actually putting in the money to either renovate or do something good with it! Admit it, they dont want to bother doing the extra work and are just too lazy you know to even care sadly LOL Its inexcusable some parking lots have fading white lines even...Neglect is sure a huge problem here!

At least in some areas of the world, if some place deteriorates usually this is where crime occurs, drugs, gangs hang out, and these areas are just nothing but trouble! But in more highly educated wealthier areas, and with the right leadership they go ahead and knock these awful filthy places down and put something better in their place for the better good!

Don`t be lazy!

Yes it seems to be a real bad habit to let stuff abandon and just let it rot around here like a fool! What too lazy to build something better in their place, or knock em down and build a nice park in their place and yes even healthy gardens that the locals can make income from.
