Posted in: Israel advances plans for another east Jerusalem settlement See in context

and as usual, nothing will be done. This is how extremists/terrorists like Bin Laden were converted. Someone/Something has/had to be done to stop the zionist plan taking over all of Palestine. These plans are written in books in the late 1800's. The World needs to act now before more needless wars erupt. How many thousands of people have/had to die because of the Palestinian cause? 9/11 and aftermath. Iraq wars. Do you remember the scud missiles lobed at Israel by Saddam? Iran and Israel-(what could that be all about?) Everything that went wrong in the middle east is mainly because of the US/England involvement directly or indirectly and the relationship/money/weapons that the US provides to Israel. Enough is enough. It is Time for peace. Give the Palestinians their stolen land back. It doesnt have to be all. A good start would be the 1967 borders.

Israel annexed east Jerusalem in a move not recognized by the international community and considers the entire city its unified capital. Palestinian residents of the city face systematic discrimination, especially when it comes to urban planning, making it extremely difficult for them to build new homes or expand existing ones.

Most countries consider the settlements to be illegal.

its a shame how Japan and others cannot see how oppressive the Israeli regime is. Theft of land is still going on to this very day. Lets not forget the concentration camp aka Gaza. How could you Japan?!

Posted in: As Israel-Palestinian truce holds, Gaza power plant restarts See in context

Life for hundreds of thousands of Israelis was disrupted during the violence, even as the country's sophisticated Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted many of the rockets

What about mentioning the lives of hundreds of thousands of Palestinian children who account for 50% of the population of Gaza of which 97% are living with PTSD?? Can you imagine how loud and scary these poundings are? Again, so many pictures and videos of the horrors committed by Israel on the children and the families of Palestine but NOT on mainstream media. Why?

We've got one but hardly use it. It's great for those who are tidy and have nothing lying around. It's also great for cleaning under the beds.

Posted in: Want to become a swordsmith? Apprenticeship opens in Japan, but the fine print might shock you See in context

instead of making it easier to qualify as an apprentice... it's like companies who are paying the bare minimum wage to do grueling work wondering why there isnt a line of applicants waiting to work hard for them! Is this an only in Japan phenomenon??

Posted in: Israel and Gaza militants exchange fire after deadly strikes See in context

If you go on Instagram and watch the real videos coming out of Gaza and the real death toll on civilians and children. It is quite graphic seeing so many bloodied or dead children being carried to hospitals. In one video you can see the bomb landing just outside of a building destroying the surroundings. Israeli Zionist terrorism is real and still in full swing.

On many sites, experts always advise to hold your crypto in hardware wallets and not on exchanges for this reason. So many exchanges/lenders/custodians have collapsed since the start of crypto.

Posted in: Japan gov't panel to propose another record minimum-wage hike See in context

When companies try to recruit part time employees they usually advertise in house, at hellowork, or hire a staffing agency to do the job for them. What i don't understand is why the staffing agency pays 100-200 yen more per hour than what is advertised by the company at hellowork? Staffing companies also need to make a cut, so they must be charging them another 200 yen an hour. Why wouldnt these companies just pay their workers a higher wage and cut out the middle man? I am always confused as to how business is run in Japan.

The Japanese way of ignoring issues until the problem is so large the dirt under the rug that keeps getting swept becomes a mountain that is too enormous to ignore.

Posted in: Over half a million yen in cash comes floating down river in Toyama See in context

i once was walking down a path at about midnight on my way to the convenience store when to my disbelief 1000 yen notes were flying around in the wind. I was literally jumping and catching said notes which added up to 8000 yen. I looked around but not a soul was in sight. I was tempted to go to the Koban but my better self convinced me otherwise. Adult private Students tried to pressure me to take the money to the Koban but I just couldn't see the point. I ended up keeping it.

Posted in: Baby subscription boxes simplifying life for parents in Japan See in context

@smithinjapan

These past 2 months we have received 2 payments of 50,000 per child for support. We have 2 kids so we received/will receive a total of 200,000. One was for households with low income. The other was available to everyone to offset rising costs/inflation and will be deposited at the end of this month. Let's not forget the subsidies for kindergartens and daycares. Kids aged 3 and above are free (still costs about 8,000 per month at the private ones for lunch and special classes). Also, in our city in Kagawa, kids get free doctor visits and medicine till JH 3rd grade. I must admit the government is trying. But they still have some way to go.

Thats the exact reason why i still check a few times before crossing and i also keep an eye on traffic whilst crossing. This needs to be taught at schools.

Posted in: Japan embraces CBD despite drug taboo See in context

Ive tried CBD for a month and it just caused "me" more anxiety. Perhaps there are different brands/potency etc but i never bothered giving it a try again. Just like everything, it might work for some but not others. THC on the other hand works for me and helps me deal with my chaotic family life at home by calming and ensuring i dont flip out on a family member. Ive been taking big pharma medication as well, and does help, but not to as well as when combined with Ms Jane.

Posted in: Mother, 2 young children found dead in apparent murder-suicide in Nara See in context

For those that dont understand why she went to the police: I have also told my wife if she ever needed any sort of help of any kind (and if i wasnt around), to go to the police and ask for help. (she looked at me like i was insane) I mistakenly assumed the koban would have contact numbers at hand for all of the issues that might arise while on duty. I totally misjudged the lack of common sense/training/thinking outside of the box/taking initiative of the police. Im pretty sure they gave that poor mother the same advice as the "old lady" that came to my house for the one month check-up after having a baby. The 70 year old asked my wife if she's been feeling down or run-down, to which my wife replied, "yes, it gets hard sometimes" Old lady told her to "brush it off/suck it up" and that it is normal to feel that way. My wife shut down after that and couldnt wait for her to leave. She is thinking about complaining to city hall. My wife was able to handle her lack of sympathy/giving good advice, but worries about the other mothers who might be having a much harder time dealing with postpartum depression. We dont have any family members or friends living in our city or close to us. Back in the days when that old lady was a young mother, she most likely had her mother/husband's mother and other family members helping her out, just like in those developing countries one poster was wondering about.

Thats what happens when you raise robots unable to think for themselves or to speak out. Lack of Communication skills is one of the few major issues plaguing Japanese society.

Not complex at all. Russell Brands interview with Dr Gabor Mate makes it real simple to understand. It can easily be found on Youtube. Another are the countless interviews with Abby Martin on the Joe Rogan show also found on Youtube. Very simple to understand. And Seth Rogen tells the truth about the lies his Jewish community has fed him through out his younger days, also found on Youtube.

Posted in: Olympics worker arrested for allegedly raping woman at stadium See in context

I would like to remind everyone about the woman "did not resist " part. Unfortunately, most Japanese Woman when struck with fear, do not how to react. Do not know how to scream for help. Do not know how to kick, punch, fight for their lives. It happens way too often here, by Japanese Nationals as well!!

Perhaps this man knew he could exploit Japanese women by taking advantage of their silence. Or perhaps he just read the wrong signals Either way, he is doomed
