Probably best to treat the allergens at source with topical application in upper nasal cavity; eye watering, mucus and sneezing are all secondary symptoms.

Well that's not so bad, after all you only have to go as far as Japan to find the use of Ivory, so you can't really blame BRI unless America tells you to.

Posted in: Kono suggests need to end reversal of Japanese names in English See in context

Not sure the sound matters but the ORDER of machine readable letters that constitutes your "name", certainly does, so you need to get this most basic question answered, first name second name or second name first name ?

Same date; do you put day then month or month then day ?

Ethically its wrong, but so is the top one percent having all the money, what surprises me is fifteen hardworking phone operators can make $12million in two months from such a tiny scam;

falsely claim that their phone use exceeded a limit and that they would need to pay an excess charge to continue using their phones.

I mean excess charge on phone usage is not a lot, normally.

Is this a real story.

Its a very profound question, more to do with the age of the culture, in the old days with book keepers they would put surname first, but with modern computers it could cope with Christian name first, find the space and sort by surname, what's of more concern is how middle names are treated.

Left out, initialised or written in full.

So even we will put "Surname,Christan name" for lists (like phonebooks, remember those ?), but address people and letters the normal way.

But then we have longer more varied Surnames.

Posted in: Can Japan end its love affair with plastic? See in context

The use of vending, and subsequent collection at vending, of both plastic and aluminium is a particularly Japanese way of achieving great efficiency in packaging.

We in Australia now buy heavy duty plastic shopping bags that we reuse, I think the biggest issue with free ones, was they would blow from the rubbish dump, out to sea, and get swallowed by the Turtles, Whales & Dolphins.

Low temperature of the fire is also caused by high fuel humidity, particularly wood. The most frequently repeating notion is thatburning plastics produces dioxins. ... Dioxins in the off-gasses of combustion will be present in wood fires and plasticfires alike, if chlorine is present.Apr 22, 2018

So we should know wood burning is not good either

@WSlifko;This would also create jobs.

"We have a serious problem, the Japanese population is going down to half the number of the current population within 50 years."

Instead of relying on human immigrants or a baby boom to solve the decline, Prof Ishiguro points to the possibility of utilising robots instead.

"We don't have enough annual immigrations, Japan is an isolated country, it's an island, our culture is quite different from other countries,"

"It is not so easy for the foreigners to survive in Japan in some sense,' Prof Ishiguro said.

"That is the main reason why we are so crazy for creating robots, and robots would be better at sorting and waste management, this is what the Government should look at, also automated self driving delivery with boxes and very little packaging.

Its benign till it isn't

selling or smoking a rather benign recreation drug such as marijuana.

Once you have the psychosis, or have acted out on it and hurt someone, its a bit late then, keep promoting Nicorette,Nicobate etc smoking is the soft gateway drug to all manner of ill health.

So while other countries were burning it to discourage trade, Japan was actually still making items out of it, and this goes on thirty years later, really is a hard country to love

They do seem to get confused over ethics and emissions, keeping the air cleaner in cities is the main thing electric cars do, but electrification with much smaller batteries also helps a lot, that is why I am in favour of hybrids and catalytic converters.

Its not fair that they don't teach Australian Prime Ministers to talk proper, I thought T Abbott was bad till I tried to read this by S Morrison:"

My great frustration is that, in addressing these issues of population and immigration programs, these debates often get hijacked by those of competing views who seek to exploit them for other causes," Morrison added. "I reject all of that absolutely."

Makes no sense at all, let the people eat coal !

Saikawa's signature on related documents was reported by Japan's Asahi newspaper in December. But their existence has assumed new urgency because prosecutors must now turn the documents over to Ghosn's defense team as part of pretrial discovery. Ghosn's lawyers were expected to have the documents in hand as early as Friday, March 15, two people said.
