The only way for Hong Kong is to revolt and be the new Taiwan. But considering how power China has become, it's impossible to try so without shedding blood. Hongkong could be the venue for the next "tianemen square massacre". It's too late! The prime minister Cameron can't do anything other than to express sentiments.It was theis greatest mistake the Britain has done for HongKong.

That's fine. I don't buy this brand. It's originally pricey before tax hikes. I prefer kinchan noodle (88Y). Much cheaper and tastier than Nissin's.

@jerseyboy Remember few years back when the yen was all-time high against the USD, JCorps was indeed panic buying foreign firms not only US'. Softbank is just exanding assets. Japan is still profitable in the future, SB is just extending arms.

Unlike other idol groups who are bound by strict no-dating clauses in their contracts or some that are allowed to date and marry but only in a reality TV setting, The Margarines are allowed to do whatever they want in order to meet their first sales target.
Good. They have more options to make big $$$. They can do porn or date old fans. Sexting or making boob-touching events like some did. They can get out of debt faster than just doing "idol" acts.

Slumdog, If you're watching the show, I'm pretty sure you've seen captions saying "Yoi ko mane-shinaide ne "(don't imitate) . I think Shinchan's genitals are harmless.
Gogogo, It's like seeing genitals of a five years old. No malice if you're sane. And because he's five years old it's fine for him to do some naivety like playing elephant genitals. If you're reacting too much on seeing naked little kids(real or cartoon), there must be something wrong with you.

ProbieSEP. 26, 2014 - 11:31AM JST Childish, annoying, and dumb? Yes.
Disagree. The show is very witty, fun, and more mature (but not sexual) than any cartoons. There are a lot of psychological and behavioural manipulation to characters, which makes Shinchan a funny character for adult audiences.
Indonesia doesn't real@ize this. The show was never harmful.

Highball7, It does reflect China and its culture and dignity. Chinese people are not quite aware what humility and consideration to others mean. Go to China and notice how their behavior differs from Japan. For instance , simple things like queuing in lines, not being hygienic etc. Even the Chinese government tells Chinese travellers to act "civilized" abroad. Mr. Sun is the typical Chinese guy you can think of . His behaviour is the result of an underdeveloped society. An athlete shouldn't act like this. He should learn from Hagino, humble and considerate to others.

I enjoy Shinchan and doesn't get bothered by his butt, it's just funny. It's actually my favorite comedy. Indonesia and rest of muslim world should.open their minds and come out from their caves once in a while.

What a scum! He is the quintessential big-headed, cocky, self-centred, arrogant, mannerless, immature sportsman. I guess being a champion doesn't guarantee you respect after all.

Fifty years after its inception, the shinkansen is no longer unique—several countries, including China, now have high speed train networks. Whether Japan can ever regain its crown remains to be seen.
Ahem! China copied the technology. But the big difference? Japan's.Shinkansen is proven safe ,half a century .

I really hope so Mirai, the mother shouldn't be allowed to meet the kids until she deeply repent and recollect what she did. I wonder where the father could be?

What will happen to the children now? The trauma and mental/emotional damages they experienced will affect them until they grow old. Poor ones. Shame on the mother.

What a very lame ceremony! I am surprised to know this psy is still doing his "one-hit-wonder" circus acts. He is already a thing of the past! Why not use some traditional Korean song? Why kpop? I hope their ideas changes in the winter Olympics.

As long as Park is the president nothing will happen. She was the daughter of a pro-Japanese imperial army. What she's been doing is acting stubborn and childish trying to portray that she's different from her father. The way she acted in the previous trilateral talks with Japan and the US was so immature. Abe was a gentleman and tried to speak korean to her but she acted like a brat. I don't see any improvement in Korea's part anytime soon. I will praise Abe for the effort but people don't have enthusiasm for this.

Papi2013SEP. 19, 2014 - 08:18PM JST Yeah, but can you do that with adding extra memory? Apple charging you arm and a leg to get 64bit storage is just criminal. With most Android phone, all you have to do is get the basic memory phone, then spend fifty bucks and add the memory in anytime you need it. Can't do that with Apple. I have to admit though, not being able to open up the back cover means Apple can design their elegant looking metal case. Unfortunately though, that advantage goes away soon enough because you need to buy plastic cases to protect the screen. You're still back to plastic anyway.
Why do you need extra memory? It's just a hassle to keep and switch microSD cards and if you misplace it, you can say goodbye to your precious data. Apple has enough memory and has the cloud. I have never used any plastic covers with my iphone. But let me ask you this, how about the plastic Shameshug phones? Why do people cover them with plastic if it's plastic? Answer to that, because it's so horribly designed! People wants to conceal the ugliness.

InJapan, The Sony XPERIA Z2 is selling like hotcakes. They designed better than other plastic competitors. The XPERIA Z3 and the HTC ONE X are the only current non-apple competitor that's good looking.

Mainland Chinese buyers are probably jealous by now. At least they are contributing to Japan's tourism. Welcome.

Gogogo you don't really need battery replaceable batteries. The life of the phone is just same as the battery. If I wanted extra juice for my phone, I'll just buy a portable power bank. It's more practical that way. I can also use the powerbank for other devices . Extra battery is just for one device. Apple built-in battery is more sensible IMO.
