Really sad news. Feel so sorry for everyone involved.

Roads are dangerous and accidents do happen - 40% of all accidents occure at intersections -

This accident should (will most probably) lead to changes in kindergarten policy. 

Why were there only 3 teachers guiding so many little children on such a busy road? I have 2 children ( a hand for each child ) so I can't imagine how the teachers can comfortably care for 4-5 children when out walking.

Most Kindergartens have minibuses. If they had one, why wasn't it used ?

The people who say that it'll be better in the long run are the same ones that said Brexit will be easy, negotiating with the EU will be a piece of cake -

Jizmo is right. There's no way to know what's going to happen

I got into an argument with wifey about the song YMCA the other day. She was convinced that it was written by a Japanese dude.

Posted in: Crushing workload at schools is causing more Japanese teachers to suffer chronic depression See in context

Perhaps the unrelenting workload is a result of Japan’s declining birth rate as the country simply does not have enough hands to take up the educator’s mantle, which means a ton of responsibilities being dumped onto Japanese teachers every day.

Or perhaps not.

Wouldn't a declining birthrate lead to less teachers and .... less children / students?

The truth is he wasn't a good president and if the accusations against him are true then he wasn't a good guy either -

But when compared to the current president, he looks like a saint

Making sure pilots don't drink and fly seems like a no-brainer. I don't understand what you're complaining about

Most disasters happen because of various things that go wrong at the time, though.

On top of that, you can't be messing around when it comes to people's lives.

Posted in: Abe lays wreath at Australian war site in Darwin, 75 years after bombing See in context

Agent, I remember almost nothing from any school book that I read 20 years ago.

The internet in Japan is not censured so people are able to read up on Japan's dark history there.

People need to read up on history before commenting on topic.

I think this shows that japan can apologize for past aggression but other parties have to show that it's not one-sided

I completely understand why countries like Russia and Canada don't care about climate change - they are set to come out on top with a 2degree rise in temperatures.

But America ? You guys are going to get hit hard by this

Posted in: Britain tells EU to engage seriously on Brexit See in context

CrazyJoe, don't just on the bandwagon and repeat that drivel that British voters were deceived. It's a popular thing to say but just not true. The general sentiment in England today is roughly the same as it was when people voted - 50/50.

52% of brits voted to leave, that is a majority. It's not nice, it's not pretty, but it is what it is and now we need to leave.

Posted in: Britain tells EU to engage seriously on Brexit See in context

The United Kingdom joined the European Economic Community (as it then was) on 1 January 1973 with Denmark and Ireland.

There it is. We signed up to be part of an economic community, not what the EU has morphed into today.

English people are fed with being told that they have to do.  What is the problem with that?

Japan gets to pick and choose who comes into their country and who doesn't.
