Kazuaki - you know what would save everyone a whole lot of money? having no government at all, no more money spent on enforcing those laws, and no more taxes! WOW!

I can't quite believe you compared how economically productive one would be and the length of their sentence.

I guess its a step in the right direction.

as in internal only?

I doubt anyone's really surprised by their visit, this is the 50th time this has happened and its the same arguments everytime. Its more a political move than anything, not to mention every country maytr's their war heroes in some form or another, and who are the villians, who are the heroes is all based on who wins the war.

Posted in: Survey on Fukushima-linked bullying reveals hundreds more cases See in context

Bullying is the problem at heart, don't think it relates to fukushima victims. Bullies will pick those who they perceive at weak to abuse, and it just so happens they are fukushima victims.

I think L's behaviour is not "Black" at all. the awkwardness etc... not to say they wont change details like this...

its an adaptation and all white washing it isnt so much a problem than cutting and changing key details that made the film good in the first place.

Posted in: What's your theory on why some men grope women on trains? Why can't they control the urge? See in context

Because they perceive they can get away with it for what ever reason.

I remember a time where i accidentally slapped a Japanese female on the face quite literally on the subway. While I did exclaim the appologies before she could even turn towards me. But before I knew it, she had already turned back and resumed her conversation with her friend, not even any venting of frustration, anger, or even a dirty look.... Not even sure if she said ANYTHING.

IRCC the slap was strong enough to be audible no less.

Posted in: Why can't Japanese teachers of English ... speak English? See in context

to be honest, this topic keeps coming up and its silly. its never going to change. trying out a new method would imply that the old method didnt work, no way!

katakana isnt the major problem but it is another hurdle.

i see english teacher not being able to speak english like a driving instructor not knowing how to drive. its possible and he isnt driving while instructing you but how is it possible he is qualified to teach you but cant actually drive the car. is he tramatised or something?

how can you be inspirational if you dont know what you are talking about, and is living proof that he cant do what you aspire to do. there are many bright minds that might just go and learn and practise english themselves, maybe we can rely on them.

Posted in: Doctors: Radiation not biggest impact on Fukushima residents' health See in context

TBH, ignoring the results of the study for the moment, is there even a lessoned to be learned from this from the general publics POV?

How does this impact what you will do going forward? Ignore all perceived negative impacts of radiation?
Not allocate more resources to treating thyroid cancer?

Posted in: Fukushima child evacuees face menace of school bullies See in context

How in the world did emigration to Canada become the solution or in the discussion at all? We can't / won't control the bullying so you should just *** pack your bags and go? Solidarity at its best.

There is no doubt where the fault lies when your child acts in an inappropriate manner causing others physical or mental harm, that is out of the societal norm.

Posted in: Kyoto Board of Education administers English test for teachers with disheartening results See in context

the results are just embarrassing. i hope the published results dont give the students even more excuse to not even try.

not sure how to fix this as i believe the lack of english skills is directly related to the perception that it is not needed and just a hurdle for school.

1) to nurture an opportunity in which lifestyles can be changed to foment a greater sense of fulfillment and satisfaction; 2) lead to a strengthening of community functions and harmony in localities; and 3) help reduce the current deflationary spiral.

Oh lord, did this come from a textbook? Does the jgov actually believe this is equivalent to rolling out a revolutionary fiscal policy or something?

Posted in: Park employee didn’t collect admission fees from 160,000 foreigners over 2 1/2 years because one scared him See in context

So this man works in CSR, he serves customers, meets ONE difficult one, and decides to give free entrance to ALL subsequent customer that LOOKS or APPEARS to be similar to this difficult one. But wait to do this he has to consistently MODIFY records to cover his own ass. He is afraid of potentially dealing with customer, which his job entails, but is NOT afraid of ILLEGALLY modifying records and be suspected of embezzlement by the government and going to prison for it.

Posted in: TEPCO delays removal of spent fuel from Fukushima reactor See in context

I'm shocked at the number of nuclear experts that visit this site, unfortunately I don't even work in the nuclear industry so I will refrain from offering any plausible but better alternate solution to this. But hey don't get me wrong I don't trust Tepco either; they definitly have plenty reason to be not forthcoming, but as it stands they are piloting the plane with only 1 functioning engine.

Posted in: APA hotel chain under fire over book denying Rape of Nanking See in context

I seriously don't see what APA has to gain by providing literature like this but has plenty to lose. Perhaps he is allergic to the Yen. Not surprised that they are standing by their owner as, he is the owner, unless you don't want to work there any more.

As it is his freedom to put what he wants on that magazine, its also my freedom to visit any hotel as i see fit during my visit to japan. It is the only thing I can do.

And claiming that its a waste of time, indicates that the matter isn't important at all to them, who cares, I'd rather walk my dog!

Posted in: Korean 'comfort women' cancel meeting with Hashimoto See in context

why would they cancel the meeting? what exactly does the former comfort women have to lose by going? Wouldn't hashimoto be now claiming he tried to make amends and these comfort women don't seem to want an apology, so what exactly do they want? Its not like he's personally responsible, he's representing japan of sorts right? So by that why does his personal views matter in this "apology"? An apology is an apology sincere or not, you can't force someone to be sincere, you could argue til the moon goes blue and people's views won't change a bit.

Posted in: Minister calls judo beatings Japan's worst sports crisis See in context

I'm surprise no one has pointed out that this "crisis" is refering to the fact that the beating incident has come to light at the same time that they are bidding for the olympics. He isn't refering to the beating as the crisis, but the fact it has shown its ugly head at the wrong time. Its a crisis in terms of promoting japanese sports and olympics in general. And he couldn't be more correct!

Posted in: Japan eased safety standards ahead of Boeing 787 rollout, records show See in context

I don't think a buyer (us) of the product cares how come the product (787) is defective so long as they get the replacement (fix the problem). The vendor on the other hand (boeing, jal, ana) would be interested, but as to why, I think they can keep it to themselves, as I can't think of a result (reason) that would cause me to not fault the vendor (boeing, jal, ana) since they still sold me a faulty product. Not to say I expect 0% defects

Posted in: U.S. officials defend handling of Boeing 787 mishaps See in context

there is nothing wrong with the situation really, things changed, corners were cut (may or may not be), faults are found, planes are grounded, more checks need to be done, corrective measures are set in place. Serously it is not in the interest of boeing to create unsafe planes, you must be crazy if you can't see that. Its in the interest of everyone that the planes are safe.

I think it is a manufacturing error and not human error that caused the spill, if anything, there shouldn't be a human error that can cause a few hundred gallons of fuel to overflow, the system should be in place to stop and or warn of such thing. And in this case the system failed.

Posted in: Japan, China need 'rules of game' to avoid clash: Abe adviser See in context

Its funny how ishihara claimed that the purchase of the islands before was a step towards resolving this island dispute. Normal people settles the dispute before making a big purchase, which sorta suggest japan never thought there was a dispute in the first place or that it was settled. In light of this, how in the world is THAT not provacation in the eyes of the chinese.

I don't think this will escalate into full out war here, its all about the money, china is probably vying for a share in the development of the resources there as it would be quite difficult (impossible) to claim full ownership, but even that scenario would mean china would have to pay japan for a share (since they bought it from the merchant).
