The strait, between Iran and the Arabian peninsula, is the sole outlet for exports of most Middle Eastern oil, and the seizure sent oil prices sharply higher. 

I do not bloody care those senseless diplomatic conflicts between politicians of different countries. However, leave the bloody oil alone! Billions of motorists all over the world re not very happy now.!

Posted in: SoftBank's Son says Japan is AI 'developing country' See in context

but Japan is home to most nobel prize winners 

Just like ifd66 points out Japan is 7th but if you mean most Nobel prize winning Asian country then it is true. However, the last 2 Japanese Noble prize winner are in 2016 and 2018, they won the Noble prize for medicine. Japan is top notch in the field of medicine. No doubt about it. The six Nonle prize categories are Literature, Economy. Physiology or Medicine, Physics, Chemistry and Peace. AI is Computer engineering (I think) so how us wining Noble prizes relevant to the development of AI.

LOL, LOL, LOL!

Posted in: Low voter turnout expected among politically apathetic youth See in context

I often wonder how election results would swing if voting was made mandatory in japan.

It may not have a big impact as you think. In Australia voting is compulsory but you are not forced to vote for someone . There are people who just do not trust any politicians or want to stay neutual but do not want to pay the fine (Yes, you will be fined for repeat absent in voting at elections in Australia). They would do an 'informal vote' like leaving the voting paper blank, draw pictures or write things on it so their vote will not be counted.

Why are people talking nonsense saying SK is walking backward, brainwashed, etc?

Because like some Koreans who have unrelenting hatred towards Japan, there are Japanese or foreigner living in Japan who have unrelenting hatred towards the Koreans.

Japan to form such an opinion. The rhetoric here is about the superior Japanese people who helped Korea out of poverty only to be badgered and poked at by the ungrateful Koreans.

Thumb up to you, mate.

Ridiculous. SK "beer-lovers" will be the ones who miss out in the long term, Kirin, Asahi etc will shift exports to other nations in the region. There is a huge boom in Japanese beer all around the world as beer lovers find out how amazing Japanese beer tastes. Now Korea beer drinkers must drink Hite... its awful lol!

Sorry, mate. Asahi and Sapporo beers sold in Australia are brewed in Australia. So what you say is not happening here. Good luck with other Asian countries.

By the way your patriotism of Japan as a foreigner really amazes me. Keep it up, mate. I look forward to your next patriotic post.

Great! More beer for the rest of us! Cheers!

Really? When I look at Asahi beer it makes me happy.

I do not condone the action of the Koreans. But your arrogance is just as bad as them.

Jeong Deok-rye, a 52-year-old restaurant owner in Seoul, said customer complaints had forced her to remove Asahi beer from the menu.

"One customer said just by looking at Asahi beer, it makes them angry," she told AFP, adding that she hopes South Korea and Japan end their animosity so that "both of the countries prosper".

Good on this lady.

Ionization smoke alarms respond faster to high energy fires, whereas photoelectric detectors respond better to low energy smoldering fires. The NFPA recommends using both smoke alarms in the home for the bestprotection.

The building has been reported as having met fire codes. Small office buildings are not required to have sprinklers.

How about smoke detectors and alarms? They are life savers when fires breaks out. My not too big house has two and they are there by law.

Also sadly, these days doors need to be locked (offices, small shops etc) and opened via an intercom system, 

According to an article from another site, due to threats they received, the studio does have a security system which requires a keycard to unlock the front door at the entry to the studio. However, it was turned off that day because they were expecting groups of visitors and they thought it would be more convenient to switch off the system.

Posted in: All Japanese customers banned from restaurant…in Japan?!? See in context

He is racist for banning Japanese

The article says he welcomes other Asian tourists so unless Japanese is not considered to be 'Asian' anymore then he is not racist. You can say it is a stupid business decision. Rather than dealing with each customer individually he decide to just ban them all.

Unusual. One possible scenario is that he sexually abused her, and now she was old enough that she was going to tell someone about it.

A highly possible scenario. Another scenario is they got into an agrument over something and when tempers flared, the father snapped and strangled the daughter.

Sometimes people, especially teens, will snap when tempers flare. Just like road rage is commonplace nowadays. This is a very unfortunate incident. The parents of the 2 students involved must be devastated.

The police car in the picture has a very interesting set of police light on its roof. Why does it need to be able to rise up even higher? I have never seen this on any police cars elsewhere in the world. Can anyone help me, please?

Bloody hell, if Little Mermaid can be black then why didn't they get an Asian girl for the job as well? I'm sire this girl isn't the only one who can sing.

If you are interested in seeing Asian Mermaid, there is a 2016 Chinese movie called 'The Mermaid (Měi rén yú)' directed by Stephen Chow (the guy from Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer). It did well at the box office in China and a sequel is reported in working.

There are lots of good comments here. I tip my hat for all of you.

Disney can change the story whatever it wants. I suggest they should consider to go even bolder like having a male mermaid falling in love for a human princess or go all out and do an adult one (not 18+) with they having intimate moments (imagine a human and a mermaid getting...) or involve some same sex love.

It is understandable for fans to be upset that their favourite character has changed. Just like some fans of Harry Potter are upset Hermione is black in the stage play and the Netflix Saint Seiya has a female Shun. As long as it is not on racist or sexist reason then it should be fine.

A boycott is the most immediate way for citizens to express their anger," said Choi Gae-yeon of the activist group Movement for One Korea, 

Only a small handful of people from an not well known activist group is promoting this idea and people are posting hateful comments against all Koreans.

That's Koreans for you. They go out of their way to pick a fight, and then when somebody hits them back they blubber like babies. The expression "to cut off one's nose to spite one's face" was custom made for them.

LOL! Such bias view towards the Koreans. In my own view Chinese, Koreans and Japanese are very similar. They are all flawed but are strong. After World War 2 if you said in 70 years these 3 countries would become economic powerhouses in the world people would said you are crazy. By the way, in case you think I am racist I am Chinese.

significant number of Koreans only take overnight ferries from Pusan to Nagasaki's Tsushima Island, where they buy everything that isn't nailed down. In other words, many Korean visitors have no interest in Japan, don't stay long and don't patronize tourist destinations.

Are they not contributing to the economy of Nagasaki's Tsushima Island? What is actually mean 'significant number'?

If they stay home and won't travel to Japan anymore it wouldn't be a bad thing as the Koreans aren't much better then the Chinese when it is about manners ...

Do not tar people with the same brush. There are Chinese and Korean tourists who have bad manners but they are the minorities. Some Japanese tourists have bad manners, too. By the way Korean tourists accounts for a quarter of the total oversea tourists visiting Japan in 2018. Together with the Chinese tourists it is half of the total. Many businesses are going to be hit hard if there is a boycott.

Japan should stop selling stuff there and just use the new JEFTA tready and ship all their stuff to Europ ... probably a much bigger Market then South Korea

LOL! What are the Europeans going to do with the LED screen making materials and other high tech electronic components? Japan exports lots of high tech components overseas to Korea and China for manufacturing electronic products, eg the smart phones. Can u name a Japanese electrical bands whose products are made in Japan? They are all made outside Japan now and they cannot even compete against those European, Korean bands and even Chinese brands in many markets.

Japan is not donating things to Korea, it makes billions selling them. What business is stupid enough to pull out of a well established market? Do you think they are not already selling to Europe if they can?

Are Hoons common in Japan? In Australia there are hoons doing burnouts in industrial areas which has wider roads. Also years ago there were hoons gathering on the Gold Coast and then headed to the highway between Gold Coast and Brisbane every weekends. They blocked off all the lanes of the highway to do rolling start races. I was caught by these twice and took me double the time to get home. It only stopped after a massive police crack down.
