Posted in: LINE to offer low-cost calls to landlines and mobile numbers both domestic and international See in context

uninterrupted high-quality voice calls

While I love LINE, and appreciate the free calls, and support the company by purchasing various stamps etc, I would not say the call feature is uninterrupted nor high-quality.

I am not complaining about it, because it is free, but this article is more of an advertisement than a news article

I hope these 'activities' are only limited to 'rope-throwing' and nothing more. I understand how both sides are very patriotic and/or passionate about defending their actions, but no good ever comes from causing someone bodily harm.

Posted in: Kiev in flames as Obama warns of 'consequences' See in context

I am so sick of Obama sticking his head into every other countries issues.

I understand how 'some' US politicians actually do wanna police the world to make it a better place, and I am grateful for those people. But, this is an issue for the Ukraine and their people, and Russia and the US need to stay out of it. IF they ask for international support, then it should come from the world as a whole, not just one country.

I am not anti-American, I am just anti-any politician who doesnt help ease a situation and instead inflame it even more, aka Obama and friends

Posted in: Snowstorm leaves 19 dead; 6,900 trapped in small communities See in context

There are "at least a few". In fact, there are lots of snow removal vehicles in some of the affected regions. The snowfall in some areas was 30 times that of a normal year! Most municipalities don't have the funds to have hundreds of bulldozers sitting idle.

Who said anything about hundreds of bulldozers? Talk about talking out of context and exaggerating geez.....

Posted in: Snowstorm leaves 19 dead; 6,900 trapped in small communities See in context

Why would an area that rarely gets more than about 5cm of snow at any one time have a huge number of snow plows on standby?

At least a few should be on hand in case of emergencies like this. While it is understandably why some people would get caught out unexpectedly, the government should not.

Bag searches wont find second passports if you keep them on you.

And they wont get detected by metal detectors, and they dont care if you are carrying two on you.

Its not the security guards job to see your passport, thats Customs. And during customs, they dont frisk you so

Thanks for the info Laguna,

I know a Japanese national that recently become an Australian citizen, but still holds both passports and uses both,

Another friend, uses the Australian passport when entering and leaving Australia, then the Japanese passport when entering and exiting Japan.

Boggles my mind how they are allowed to do this....

Posted in: Nuclear regulator raps TEPCO over Fukushima radiation readings See in context

From NHK news: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/english/news/20140213_22.html?play Record cesium level in ground water now at Fukushima

And quote Tepco

TEPCO suspects the leakage point is near the new well because radioactive cesium is easily absorbed into soil and is unlikely to be carried over a wide area in groundwater.

Suspects

Unlikely

FFS, is there no concrete facts that they have???

RIP poor girl.

Questions have to be asked why a 35 year old man was dating a 17 year old high school student, unless what he said about them dating was just a lie.

I never knew there was only one "route" from Narita to Tokyo. Since that line was covered in snow, a large number of people were stranded at Narita. Surely they would have back up plans, such as a convoy of buses to transport people?

Is a subway viable?

The agency issued a heavy snow warning for Tokyo, the first such warning for the capital in 13 years, calling on residents not to go out unless necessary.

Does studying at Starbucks count as necessary?

So he got into politics 12 years after making that stupid sexist quote, surely he has changed his views since then???

according to Miyata’s family, she had gone out after her cat which had run away from home.

That doesnt mean that is the reason why she was killed. Who knows what happened as soon as she left the house. We have no idea if there was foul play or other forces involved.

Yeah, but I still dont understand your first post of linking him to showing up to pick up the money. The head Yak didnt, his goonie did. His goonie did all the work, got arrested, and is trying to explain why he did the scam. The goonie says the boss ordered him, the boss says he knows nothing, how on earth can the cops charge the boss?

Posted in: No guns See in context

Umm,

I dont understand this poster at all.

There are very few gun crimes in Japan already If someone pulled a gun, every Japanese and his dog would go running for cover, hell if someone even pulled a pocket knife it would take a very brave soul to try to stop them. I am not criticising the people, it is just that people here tend to avoid any kind of confrontation.

That being said, what is the purpose of the poster?
