This just show how arrogant Trump can be. He will be remembered as " The most arrogant US president" in history.

He is just jealous because Obama got one (To this day I still don't understand THAT one either)

Why "Prince of Green Juice" ? "King of Green Juice" sounds much better.

People will not come to Japan to Gamble.

That may be true. However, foreign tourist will have another entertainment for them while staying in Japan. Especially at night, so there will be tourist going but they will not spend big money gambling.

I really think Trump had nothing to do with this, but conveniently the Chinese government can use him as a scapegoat.

No, he does. The trade war between China and USA definately play a part. It may not be a big part but it does have some impacts. It is true though the Chinese goverment will blame him for all the bad things happen.

My wife is very upset and disappointed, and all of Asia is too.

Sorry to know your wife is upset. But all of Asia? J-pop was big ages ago. Now K-pop is king in Asia. That is the truth.

Are Arashi big in Australia? I didn’t think J-Pop was big down under.

No. K-Pop is move popular. Serval boy bands like BTS, Big Bangs have held concerts in Australia. However, I would not say K-Pop is big down under, too.

Nice to see the writers get this one right, unlike the rest of the media in Japan!

When people were debating here at JT if Naomi is Japanese I said Naomi is the first tennis player representing Japan to win a Grand Slam. Someone said I was close but no cigar. It is nice to see someone agreeing with me.

Not even close to a job. Serena has dominated womens tennis for quite a long time, I have a hell of a lot of respect for the way she plays and it's a compliment to BOTH!

Understood. No hard feelings. OK?

Why do I get so many dislikes just asking how she plays on clay and grass courts?

@Wolfpack

You do have a point. I agree the current generation cannot be held responsible for past crimes. However, is it really difficult to say I feel sorry or acknowledge that all the injustice in the past are wrong. Respect their view and try to reconcile. Instead people are saying thing like kyronstavic wrote:

Australia would've been colonised by somebody eventually, and while the British didn't have the cleanest record when it came to setting up colonies, you could argue that they were still a lot kinder to the natives than the French, Spanish, Dutch, Belgians and later, the Japanese.

So the "if I did not do it then someone else would do it" excuse. If I took money someone left at an ATM and gets caught. I wonder if the police will accept this excuse.

You should feel lucky. The others would have killed all of your people but I only killed half. You should feel lucky and thank me.

And lets' not forget that the Aborigines were not a single nation anyway - there were nomadic tribes all over the harsh continent who would go to war against each other, and were pretty brutal to their own as well. And with a short life expectancy, in many ways - not every way - they were a lot better off after Europeans arrived. True, they didn't have immunity to foreign diseases which unintentionally wiped a large number of them out.

Their war were their own problems. Using it to justify the colonisation is just wrong. They were a lot better off? They lost all their land! They were treated as second class citizens. You do know that they did not get the right to vote until 1962, right? Another excuse to justify your wrongings.

But claiming that they were invaded makes about as much sense nowadays as Brits getting mad at the descendants of the Romans and Vikings. Current generations owe no debt of guilt, land and reparations to what happened generations ago. If some people choose to feel guilty of their own volition, that's their choice. But for the rest of us, as long as Aborigines are treated as equals to every other citizen under the law, that should be enough.

The Romans and Vikings' invasion of Britain is another case. Trying to use it to justify the the colonisation of Australia which happened only about 230 years ago is wrong. Australia was colonised. " colonised" is kinda a better saying of "invaded". So is it OK to say you are treated equally now. Stop your whinging!

I guess Naomi next goal is to collect all 4 grand slams. If she wins the French Open and Wimbledon she will be holding all four grand slams at the same time which will make her a legend. So how are Naomi's game on clay and grass courts?

So if the feelings of guilt are so strong, are the descendents of the 'invading' British people who became Aussies willing to leave and let the Aborigines have their land back?

Well, not leaving but kinda let them have their land back. Below is extract from the internet:

The Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976 has resulted in almost 50 per cent of Northern Territory land being returned to Aboriginal peoples. Some State governments followed the lead of the Australian Government and introduced their own land rights legislation.

This is not a celebration of an invasion of the land, it’s a celebration of individual states coming together to form a country.

A good point. Thumb up.

It looks like the ghost of colonisation is well alive. My ancestors took over your land, killed thousands of your people. One time even tried to wipe out your race. Then we dare to say that they did it for your own good or find some excuses to justify their actions. I wish one day aliens with far superior technology come to earth and enslave all humans. Then those will know how it really feel.

At present though, Australia faces more grief and turmoil from the influx of immigrants over the last 20 odd years under the open immigration policy.

What grief and turmoil have the immigrants caused, mate? Australia is built by migrants. By the way, I do not think Australia has an open immigration policy. I never thought you are so xenophobic.

About two years ago while I was holidaying in Osaka, one day I was waiting for my wife outside a shop near Shinsaibashi in the morning, I suddenly felt someone tapped on my shoulder. I turned and found nobody behind me. I looked around and did not find anyone suspicious. I was a little bit surprised that someone would do a silly prank like this in Japan. But I guess I was lucky that I did not get thrown 'sauce'.

@Ah_so

Thanks for the link. Below is extracts from it:

Unique offenders by country of birth for April 2017 to March 2018; countries where offenders are over-represented are highlighted in bold

% of total offenders. % of population

AUSTRALIA. 71.25. 61.61

NEW ZEALAND. 2.18. 1.68

INDIA. 1.44 3.11

UK & IRELAND. 1.32. 4.23

VIETNAM. 1.11. 1.54

SUDAN. 1.07. 0.16

CHINA. 0.85. 3.02

So people born in Australia and New Zealand are also over-represented in crime in Victoria. Yet no one are saying anything about them. The African gang problem should be addressed but at the same time let's be fair, mate. Mention the fact that lots of Aussies and Kiwis are doing crimes, too.

These statements and the many idiotic comments in this thread display what is really going on, hatred of people who are different from you. Like racism, no different.

In one famous incident that occurred in 2001, a woman used a vacuum cleaner to suck the mochi out of her 70-year-old father's throat, saving his life.

So apart from using the Heimlich manoeuvre, do the Japanese government advice people to try using vacuum cleaners as first aids for choking on Mochi.
