remove the income limit

I wonder who came up with this genius ideas? The impediment stopping high-earners from having kids is clearly not money-related.

That’s strange. I was told Netflix was packed with woke content on here.

it is. They’ve just signed a 10-year deal to stream men in underpants who cuddle each other according to the article.

Police said Uehara has denied the charge 

What exactly is she denying? That she hit the people, or something else?

Posted in: Female DJs beating the odds in Japan boys' club electronic dance music scene See in context

the tendency for women to be objectified, or worse, based on their appearance lies at the heart of the issue.

Female DJs tend to dress in quite revealing attire, so they’re using it to their advantage and then complaining about being objectified. Seems an odd stance…

And of course, the comment before mine already made that. Should have read to the end, lol!

Posted in: Japan to spend ¥164.7 bil on 2025 Osaka expo amid public skepticism See in context

Read that this is likely going to end up being the often discussed casino for Japan once the expo is done. So someone high up will be forcing this through at any cost to profit from that.

While it’s not ideal, at least they seem to have been honest about the radiation levels. If South Korea’s independent team also gave the thumbs up, at a time they could have used it for political points, that says a lot…

Posted in: YouTube cuts off Russell Brand's ad revenues after sexual assault allegations See in context

If the first low life report the alleged allegations there would be no other alleged allegations. These woman coming out of wood work now to report their alleged rape are low life opportunists even if it is fact. These women were able to stop these so called raping of more woman but decided it was not worth the bother back then.

Probably terrified of internet commentators such as yourself deciding that victim blaming is the correct course of action.

Posted in: UK comedian Russell Brand accused of sexual assault: media See in context

Saw that a Reddit post from 8 months ago predicted something big was coming and that was why Brand had suddenly pivoted into the right wing conspiracy nut realm. Easy to get support from idiots who believe the loud voice over reason and try to frame the narrative in a way that makes him appear the victim.

Posted in: TikTok hit with $368 million fine under Europe's strict data privacy rules See in context

EU hobby these days, making money from big tech that making good products that people using everyday.

Always amazes me that people will side with companies who are profiting by failing to protect privacy rights of children. Such a weird take.

Good win for Liverpool, but Villa looked all over the place. The scoreline could easily have been much worse for them.

The dollar was trading at 1435.23 yen on Friday.

Might want to check those numbers again ;-)

Posted in: Pentagon confident on sharing intelligence with Japan despite China hacking report See in context

What are Japanese journalists doing, just waiting for a press release?

American sources tend to talk to American media.

A bigger question for me is why America is leaking this stuff to the media in the first place rather than talking to Japan.

"Something about it makes me feel like this is not made by human being," Julia Olderius, in charge of concept development at the museum, told AFP.

Because… it hasn’t been made by a human?

Posted in: Netflix expands password-sharing crackdown worldwide See in context

Well, I have the family subscription so my parents can watch but they are in the U.K., I hope this doesn’t effect me.

I am in a similar arrangement with family back home using my account. We are the absolute targets of this haha.

I’ve seen on Twitter many getting emails about it already but I haven’t gotten one yet. Probably won’t be far off though. Once it does I’ll downgrade my plan, no need to keep on the top tier if I can’t get full use of it.

Posted in: Kishida rules out tax hikes to fund more childcare spending See in context

Is there any evidence that the spending rationale even makes sense as a way to increase birth rates? They’ve been throwing money at it for years now and it is just getting worse, would love to see the decisions actually be justified.

Throwing even more money at the problem still won’t improve it while companies keep pushing women to “retire” when they become pregnant. Maybe it’s time to finally accept that a large number of women actually want careers, and focus on getting companies to support that ideology instead?

But... we have been told that "blockchain" is totally secure. What happened?

Even blockchain can’t protect people if they call for phishing or rug pull scans.

If a construction company is involved, wouldn’t be a stretch to assume backhander payments are also involved somewhere along the line.

That documentary from BBC has finally started the ball rolling. Johnny’s won’t even acknowledge the claims which feels a lot like they know and want to just ignore until it goes away.

Friendly reminder that Japanese bank accounts are only insured up to 10 million yen per account. So don’t keep more than that as the government won’t return anything more if the bank fails.

Looking forward to this. The first 2 Creed movies were far better than I expected them to be. Not perfect, but definitely good entertainment value.
