Posted in: Nara considers increasing number of deer that can be killed each year See in context

They should be properly sacrificed for their meat. I know many xyz whatever generations categories are there might be thinking pet rights and animal protection and such, but this is nature's way. It's much better they serve their purpose than being in small cages until they die.

Would you be upset if a lion hunt and eat them?

Good, he should file a lawsuit against media organization (like this one) as well for defamation. I hope justice will prevail.

Posted in: Kaki: The miracle Japanese persimmon See in context

Kaki sold in regular shops is seedless and tasteless just like almost all fruits here. Unless you are willing to pay ridiculous price. I don't know how those who say fruits here taste good would say when they taste the organic not genetically modified/selected for best size and looks and not covered with pesticides and wax.

Posted in: 6 teens nabbed over 'papakatsu' robbery in Tokyo See in context

I'd say it's more the adult's (30 years old man) fault

He should be convicted for his acts with a minor.

The kids outsmarted him and knew what he is doing was illegal so they took advantage of that and blackmailed him.

Regardless, those teenager acted like teenagers and the adult should be in serious trouble. But as expected, victim blaming and safety for the middle-age salary man.

Posted in: Edamame hummus: The perfect healthy dip See in context

It doesn't include hummus (chickpeas) nor tahini (sesame seed cold pressed paste) which are the key ingredients to "hummus"

So why is it called "Edamame hummus"?

Just because it's paste?

Then let's call kebab as chicken unagi!

They've met 3 years ago. That means when she was 19. And he was in his 40's which means she was underage. Will he be charged for that crime?

Posted in: Case involving hospital worker who kissed female colleague sent to prosecutors See in context

The unidentified male suspect, who is in his 50s

What, is his name being withheld because he's a senior?

No, but to encourage such behavior, usually the identity of sexual assault criminals is protected.

the farthest they would go is share his name. no picture nor public record of about the sexual criminal's location is available.

and as you can see by the comments section, the male dominant society in which they blame the victim when the victim report sexual harassments, thinking that women are having a great time going through the mental pressure and pain for some gain?

Posted in: Uber Japan referred to prosecutors over hiring of overstayers See in context

if you have paid some attention you can notice that the Jmedia is really focusing on Uber eats,

recently the prosecutors are trying and investigating really hard on Uber, I won't be surprised if even most of the news were faked or acted.

the competitors, like Panda and DiDi are also into the same business, in fact, some food delivery workers signup for multiple companies and use non-labeled bags.

but, you can see the media posting videos and images of exclusively Uber eats.

just typical attempt by the media to brainwash people. like they did many times before.

let me ask you, is overstaying foreign Uber eats worker a worst criminal than a rapist or sexual offender?

then, why you haven't seen any of their pictures?....

Posted in: Knife-wielding man shot dead by police officer in Toyama See in context

for those screaming 'this ain't Hollywood!' - if the policeman is not skilled enough to be calm and in control and with sharp aim that can shoot the knife out or at least a leg then the policeman shouldn't be allowed to carry a gun.

the man with a knife is dangerous, but as far as we know he didn't do anything other than swinging a knife.

a kick in the nuts would have knocked him down for hours.

Posted in: 44-year-old man arrested for confining high school girl at his home See in context

Those who victim blame have no understanding how weak is the mind of a teenage girl who (probably) receive minimum attention from her parents

"The girl’s parents had reported her missing on the morning of March 9 after saying she had had gone out the previous evening and not returned home"

This is kidnapping of a minor, sexual assault on a minor and possible rape. result should be minimum of 10 years and (if) relapsed after assessment his location should be available to the public.

Posted in: Do you think Facebook and Google should pay news publishers for providing them with content? See in context

If I have a shop and I sell at that shop tomatoes, and I have enough customers who buy tomatoes to keep the shop going and make profit, then another person comes to me who wants to sell potatoes at my shop, I let them use small space in my shop for free because the number of customers increased at my shop due to the customers coming to buy potatoes, I got more customers looking and sometimes buying my tomatoes.

now, I should pay to the person who brought the potatoes to my shop and he is selling using my shop?

I think I would give him some services like free space, free shade, free platform,.. but I won't pay him unless there is a competitive shop who also sell tomatoes next to me and offer to pay the potatoes guy if he consider moving to their shop.

unless there is a competitor better or at same level as Facebook and google then they don't need to pay anyone.... in fact they can charge news publishers to publish on their platforms.

Posted in: SoftBank Group net profit soars to ¥1.17 trillion in third quarter See in context

I hate Softbank and I will never recommend them to anyone, they made me go to post office to send back their device because simply they said if I don't send it back I will be charged with extra 3man + they made me pay 5man to cancel the contract with their hidden fees which were not indicated on the website.

"we don't care about customers and unreasonable prices, because simply the customers don't have another option" as what I was told.

Posted in: Thousands protest Myanmar coup in Tokyo; demand Japan take tougher action See in context

In August 2018, a study[83] estimated that more than 24,000+ Rohingya people were killed by the Myanmar military and the local Buddhists since the "clearance operations" started on 25 August 2017. The study[83] also estimated that more than 18,000 Rohingya Muslim women and girls were raped, 116,000 Rohingya were beaten, 36,000 Rohingya were thrown into fire,[83][84][85][86][87][88] burned down and destroyed 354 Rohingya villages in Rakhine state,[89] looted many Rohingya houses,[90] committed widespread gang rapes and other forms of sexual violence against the Rohingya Muslim women and girls.[91][92][93] The military drive also displaced a large number of Rohingya people and made them refugees. According to the United Nations reports, as of January 2018, nearly 690,000 Rohingya people had fled or had been driven out of Rakhine state who then took shelter in the neighboring Bangladesh as refugees.[94] In December, two Reuters journalists who had been covering the Inn Din massacre event were arrested and imprisoned.[94]

source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution_of_Muslims_in_Myanmar

hardly seen any protest against that persecutions and human rights violations when extremist Buddhists started a major crackdown on the Rohingya Muslims in the country's western region of Rakhine State.

Posted in: Woman infected with coronavirus commits suicide at Tokyo home See in context

the reason to suicide is not her infection, she probably have already existing depression, having the infection could be a trigger, a correlation. Not all people with the virus will suicide, only the ones with suicidal ideation and pre existing depression. if it wasn't covid, other things/disease could have triggered her suicide.

Posted in: Man arrested for buying cup meant for ¥100 coffee but pouring ¥200 latte into it See in context

such a serious crime must be investigated thoroughly and collect a large amount of intel then hire undercover police man to arrest him red-handed. now the world is safe from a coffee thief that over several months was able to steal about 2000yen worth of coffee!

other crimes not worthy of such efforts?
