Please get rid of the ¥1 coins - nothing worse than a purse or pocket full of these.

australia got rid of the 1c & 2c coins years ago - best decision ever.

Another case of PC gone mad.

the world has again become too sensitive - where does it end ?

Let’s insist on all teams whose mascots are panthers or tigers changing their names because they were the names of German tanks.

& What about those teams whose nickname is the Reds, because that’s associated with Communism.

Muslim immigration is fine as long as they are willing to adapt to Australia’s Culture & way of life.

The problem is, most aren’t. Most muslims want Australia to change for them, & the PC do-gooders allow it.

Thus we now have schools & areas where Christmas & Easter pageants are forbidden, & Muslim students are allowed to leave the room rather than sing the national anthem.

No real surprise here.

Players don’t fire their coach after they help you win two grand slams & you attain number one ranking in the world. This was all achieved within a year of being hired too.

There’s more to this story than she is letting on.

Posted in: Crushing workload at schools is causing more Japanese teachers to suffer chronic depression See in context

agree 100% with the bukkatsu comment.

making teachers & students do an activity neither really want to do, is a lose-lose situation. At least scale it back from its current twice a day, six days a week.

giving both teachers & students more free time to relax would certainly make the schools a lot happier place to be

This guy is doing his best to get his face in the media to become well-known - from traveling to space to giving away money.

To me, he seems like an egotistical billionaire, for whom fortune is not enough, he now craves fame.
