Posted in: If you work in Japan, how much Japanese-language ability is needed in your job? See in context

Just enough to be able to order food from a nearby shokudo during lunch.

Clever! He knows not to talk.

Posted in: Japan on alert for unseasonal swarm of stink bugs that feed on fruit See in context

The all brown ones are called jackos in Ehime. Stinky little buggers. Stinkier than the green polished ones. They were all over my windows last night attracted to the light of my room and aura.

Just make sure not to have too many people standing together taking pictures or else they'll build a blocker barricade.

Posted in: A century ago, anti-immigrant backlash almost closed America’s doors See in context

Good article. Seeing this is a Japan English site, the info below is related:

On November 13, 1922, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to definitively prohibit Japanese from becoming naturalized citizens on the basis of race. This ban lasted until 1952.

Gee, maybe in the near future, they'll replace human news anchors with an AI hologram.

Posted in: Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, who skewered fast food industry, dies at 53 See in context

I admired him for what he was doing and showing back in the early 2000s. I always found the fast-food industry to be dishonest and wished there was more of a spotlight on them and along came Spurlock. 53 is really young. Cancer sucks. Thanks for your films.

Posted in: 24-year-old man arrested for abusing one-year-old daughter, breaking her leg See in context

To break a one-year-old kid's leg, you'd have to hit the leg pretty damn hard. They're so incredibly cute at 1 y/o, so if this much hate is thrown at this baby/child now, imagine what'll happen in the future. Keep him away.

Ruffians. Boys will be boys. Glad no one got killed.

Posted in: Transport ministry reviews safety at JAL after spate of incidents See in context

Those are quite a few incidents to happen in such a short time. They really should be checked out and am glad to see Japan's Transport Ministry being proactive on this.

Posted in: MLB says robot home plate umpires unlikely for 2025 See in context

Sometimes, even if AI or a machine can do the job, it's better to keep the human element in.

Posted in: Heat waves can be deadly for older adults: An aging global population means millions at risk See in context

When I get older and poorer and when the temps get insanely high and humid, I'm going to have my bathtub filled with cool water. Taking a dip in it three or four times a day would keep me feeling real nice like.

I hate insurance companies.

They should go with Yellen's original plan seize all of Russia's assets. Go all out.

Posted in: Gadgets, toys for visually impaired gaining traction in Japan See in context

Sony Corp launched last year a digital camera that projects the subject captured by the device onto the user's retina via laser technology, allowing visually impaired people to see things though a viewfinder and take photos.

Fantastic! This is where I'd like to see billions of dollars go rather than for putting space vehicles on other planets. Let's focus more on helping us humans here on Earth first, especially those that are more unfortunate.

Posted in: Daily marijuana use outpaces daily drinking in U.S., a new study says See in context

I sit here just hoping that Kishida and the other overpaid beauracrats are reading this article and are on the verge of rethinking this whole post-WWII American imported paranoia about pot should finally be dissed. Just dreaming away....

Posted in: High Seine levels delay Paris Olympics rehearsals again See in context

The open water triathalon could be held at the beautiful southwest beaches of Biarritz, Hossegor or Saint-Jean-de-Luz.

The safety of the athletes should be paramount and they'd be introducing a gorgeous part of France on top of that.

Posted in: Gaps remain between what's known about obesity and how it's being treated See in context

The three macro-nutrients are fats, proteins and carbs. Eat more fats (60% which helps satiate your hunger), moderate amount of protein (30%) and few carbs as possible (10%).

Eat in moderation, periodically fast (IF), and moderately exercise (walking's fine) and don't be sedentary. Finally avoid processed sugar and foods.

You'l be amazed at the changes that'll take place.

Posted in: Who would you like to see become the next prime minister after Fumio Kishida (whenever that happens)? See in context

I'd go with Tomoko Tamura who heads the Japanese Communist Party. BTW, JCP is Japan's oldest political party from 1922.

If not Tamura, it'd have to be Neko Hiroshi. Nyaaa!

Posted in: Japan still wrestling with legacy of graft-stained Olympics See in context

Not to mention the graft and corruption of Japan's previous Olympic Games in Nagano in '98. All paperwork, emails and records related to the corruption probe magically "disappeared." The people are getting tired of it.

Should hold her in the tank until Christmas. Dying unnecessary though.

OMG poor kid. What a freak accident. They're so incredibly cute at two. I'm sure this family is devasted.
