Posted in: Japan weighs incentivizing childbirth by fully covering expenses See in context

Having kids and dedicating Time to look after them is just too much hassle for today’s youth. Finding work and keeping it, is probably more at the forefront of people’s minds these days.

Put a hole in the seat, and a plastic bag below, then you have a porta-loo, just right for disaster preparedness.

Posted in: British Prime Minister Sunak sets July 4 election date as his Conservatives face a likely defeat See in context

Normally I’d vote for the Conservatives,

However, recent Policies have turned me against them.

It seems that they’re just making things up as they go along and without a thought upon the consequences to anyone but themselves.

James Cleverly should himself be deported to somewhere - Palestinie perhaps,, likewise Rishi Sunsk should go back to his plush US penthouse life.

All the recent prior Conservatuve PMs should have their annual ex-PM allowance revoked , such Public taxes instead could be used for better things! Perhaps a lettuce farm being run by migrants ?

So, No more Conservative voting for me.

Yeah I agree with “@Daniel Negari”, the problem is a knee jerk reaction to something that is a problem, but hasn’t been properly thought out - except on a cost basis… what’s the least we can spend to be seen to address the problem.

Posted in: Law change lets Japanese police crack down on rule-breaking cyclists See in context

The police themselves cycle on the pavements here in Japan, and in some cases it’s a lot safer to do that than ride on the road.

I’d like to see the same criminal laws being applied to pedestrians who read their phone displays whilst walking…

Lots of downvotes for people saying this was wrong and the amount of money derisory. The Japanese right wing nationalists must be having a field day here. The downvotes say it all.

Whilst Success on the international playing field is great for Japan, I fear it’s also revitalizing the darker side of Nationalism here in Japan.

I find myself in an awkward position on how to comment upon this situation... particularly, since ISRAEL enacted revised laws that suggested any disagreement with the Government of their Country was an "anti-semantic" act...

Posted in: 1 in 5 people aged 65 or older in Japan predicted to have dementia by 2060 See in context

Before you all comment, and joke about this, bear one thing in mind... "dementia" starts where & when ?

Did you forget to buy something that you meant to when you set out on your daily shopping exercise, or did you "forget" a simple task someone asked of you ? In either case, are you heading into the dark World of "dementia" ?

Who has not forgotten something ? Even, when told to not forget on the same day... ?

Do not let this article let you give up and submit to what it tells you is a potentially an inevitable case....

Posted in: Owner of unauthorized MSDF drone video says he knew risks, shared it for fun See in context

I just did it for fun

Honesty, I do not blame this person one bit, not one bit. Harmless fun, yes, in his mind... and in mine.... but, with a more serous "hey take note" attached, should I have been the one carrying it out. Drone attacks need to be taken more seriously, being in the Navy isn't a 9-5 job Mon-Fri... even when "parked" at a safe location.

Security management staff/companies in this situation, should either be fired, or retrained.... as they have lost sight of current Security management trends.

The Japanese version of "Rules based adherence" is unfortunately "absolute" without any chance of divergence regardless upon exceptional circumstances. This is why Japan is not a Good example of setting rules that have to be followed, since Japan is inherently inflexible and does not adapt well to changing situations.
