Posted in: Japan inflation slows to 2.2% in April See in context

The pace of Japanese inflation slowed in April to 2.2 percent as gas bills fell, 

Lets add just a bit of honesty to this story.!. Japan does NOT include the prices of fuel and food in their GDP / CPI! If they did , the actual rate of inflation would be well over 20%. Literally everything we buy at the grocery store has gone up dramatically or the quantity has been reduced for the same price ! The jgov has been subsidizing fuel prices (car and home) for 4 years ! It has NOT been passed on to us consumers! It is corporate greed/ welfare at its worst!

Inflation is closer to 30% here . Japan does NOT include the price of food and fuels in their GDP.!. If they did , the public at large would see how bad they’ve been getting hosed for decades.!.

Posted in: Shelling kills civilians in Ukraine's northeast as fears grow of a second Russian takeover See in context

This unprovoked and illegal invasion by Russia is a black and white , right or wrong issue.!, Tough guy Putin thought h could just walk all over Ukraine and Zelensky.!, This was supposed to take 3 days to a week .!. Ukraine, nor NATO did anything to threaten Russia.!. And now what ? Putin can travel to Belarus and nowhere else.!. There is ONLY 1 bad side here .!. Some people try to spin reality and share blame with Zelensky, a comedian turned politician turned wartime commander in chief.!. That’s surely what bothers Putin the most .!. I truly don’t understand how any normal thinking person remotely and constantly thinks / states that Zelensky is part of the problem, and that the President of a sovereign country should just let the criminal invaders just keep what they’ve stolen so far.!. That thought process is fatally flawed you see .!. If your neighbor kept stealing from your apartment , would you just say … for short lived peace , just keep what you’ve taken .!. That’s just beta coward …. You see .!.

Posted in: Japan to require day nurseries, schools to block sex offenders from jobs See in context

I’ve been a kindergarten English teacher at the same school here for 13 years. Including our preschool and gakadou dept , we have 430 students. We also have cameras everywhere except the restrooms. We have never once had an issue brought to our attention because it isn’t “prevalent” as some falsely stated ! However , we do check our videos if a child is thought to have wandered off, something is missing , or something is damaged. There are some whacked out people in the world sure … the issue directly in Japan is that when a teacher is accused of something, regardless if true or not , they just get sent to another school. That is the issue. That’s why we hear about repeat offenders. They have a personnel file… but it’s usually kept secret . The new laws should cure these problems… but again … this is not some massive problem at kindergartens all over the country …

Posted in: Ukraine wins G7 security pledges but NATO membership remains elusive See in context

This issue is black and white ! The only country on the planet earth that wanted to invade a neighbor was Russia .!. A “cease fire?” Sure … Putin needs to pull his troops (some are children) out of Ukraine. Unfortunately, this illegal invasion will only end with Putins death .!. He made the greatest mistake since Japan hit Pearl Harbor! Putin has set Russia back for decades to come .!. I still find in incomprehensible that there are a few ( a tiny uneducated fraction) of those that want to blame Zelenskyy for not “ending the war.” This is not a war ! Seriously… if I invaded your house, what would you be willing to let me keep to get me to leave ???

Instead , here we are 3 plus years later and XBB is still raging wild .!.
