Aboriginal Australians have been treated brutally has African Americans including having their children taken away from them. Maybe, they need ALM?

You can argue statistics back and forth, but everybody knows high incidence of criminal activity attracts more policing.

Not in all cases like mistaken no knock warrants and dead the occupants while in bed.

Hi Zichi

Thank you for your reply and suggestion.

At the moment Japanese citizens are unable to travel anywhere world wide.

The government can not prevent nationals leaving or returning which would go against the constitution. I believe the UK has lifted restrictions for Japanese. Also the EU have lifted restrictions. Japan has not lifted restrictions for foreigners.

Are you getting married in the UK or Japan?

But I'm not an expert on any of this.

Blacks killed 9 out of 13% of the population.

Whites killed 11 out of 87% of the population.

Sorry but that is meaningless data. It assumes that everybody in the population has contact with the police. If you want to make a judgement about police behaviour you should look at per police interaction.

Then you need to take it up with Blacklabel who posted the data, did you miss that? My comment as you can see was for him.

Your Japanese fiancée is able to travel to the UK and return but you can't until the travel restrictions are lifted. You could have a legal wedding in the UK and once the restrictions are lifted another in Japan.

9 unarmed Black people total killed by police in USA

11 unarmed White people were also killed by police in USA.

So more whites than Blacks. and thats it, 20 in total who were not actively attacking officers or were armed criminals.

Blacks killed 9 out of 13% of the population.

Whites killed 11 out of 87% of the population.

Since you are so into per capita with the Covid-19, how do these killings works out?

From January 2009 to December 2016, almost 10 million jobs were added, but amazingly, 1.6 million working-age people dropped out of the workforce.

Then where did the 1.6 million go if they didn't claim unemployment? They didn't win the lottery?

GDP will drop 2%. Republicans want to cut the unemployment supplement to $300 from the current $600. Tens of millions are claiming unemployment. Another 1.4 million Americans filed for first-time unemployment benefits last week. Unlike the Congress members tens of millions are now without healthcare.

"Several middle-echelon Japanese military officers, the so-called "experts" on Jewish affairs, spread these ideas. In contrast to the Nazi goal of eliminating "all-powerful" Jewry, the Japanese idealogues took a much more logical and humanitarian approach: They would harness this "Jewish power" on behalf of Japan and its New Order in East Asia."

I too use my internet for part of my work and move very large files at times. I write and make translations. I do graphic artwork. I can download a full scale movie in less than 20 minutes while watch TV (also internet) call by family in the UK/America.

I don't even have to think about it.

I have had no problems with my internet speeds for more than 15 years. I live in the middle of the country and have speeds of 500Mbps.

I don't understand why you have not taken action with your apartment management. Or move home if you need the internet for your work.

I don't understand why you don't have a portable wifi then.

Your anti-Japan comments are irrelevant to the article,

I don't have anti Japanese comments. That is a common comment made by you whaen we don't agree with you. I have lived here for 30 years, longer than you, who lives in America. That does not mean I accept what the Japanese Imperial Military did from about 1930 to 1945. Even my own Japanese family don't accept. FIL had to fight in China. None of my friends agree with that history.

I have many Jewish friends in the UK. I know people who were Jewish children and walked all the way from Austria to Britain to escape the Nazi. I knew some camp survivers too. I was born at the end of the war. I have seen personally the sufferings. Family and community in India, Burma, and Korea in the end, some POW's. I have seen what war does to people.

Yes the Japanese didn't put the Jews in death camps. But in some countries like in Malaysia they had to wear badges to show they were Jewish.

The Shanghai ghetto wasn't named by me, it was named by the Jews.

The JIM killed many tens of millions of people and saved less than 100,000 Jews. Which way does the scale balance?

You can't just take one slice of tiny history and refuse to accept the rest.

Again, the IT infrastructure here needs to be vastly improved for teleworking to catch on.

Japan has one of the best internet structures in the world and in the top five for speeds. I would move home myself.

After our last lease ended I spend a couple of years looking for the right place. One thing I always did first was check the internet speeds. We are in the countryside and we get 500Mbps.

If you won't want to move home then I suggest you find an alternative wifi service.

Who is the fiber optic provider and who is your IP?

You need to sort it out I wouldn't accept that service even for a single day.

The period of the Japanese Imperial military will forever remain their darkest in their history. The history needs to be taught correctly in the classrooms. No revisionism.

Since then, Japan over the past 70 years has changed for the better and without further wars.

please refain from lecturing me, it’s boring. You have no idea what I have read and studied. All foreigners including Jews were treated poorly during their internment on mainland Japan. I have read accounts. The Jews in China received better treatment in the amount of food they got.

In Kobe For a while I had my studio in a building which had housed Jewish interns.

They received less rations than what was given to JIA troops. All foreigners were treated badly including POW's and Korean forced labor in the mines.

Your constant defense of what the JIA did during the war is shameful to all those who fought! Including my own family and community. At least be honest and not to seek to justify constantly.

With the Jews because they were treated better than in Nazi Germany does not remove the many terrible war crimes committed.

I don’t need another of your lectures. I’ve read up on it. You didn’t read my post,you just dive straight in has usual to find some justification. There are no justification for the many terrible war crimes committed by the IJA. The Jewish situation does not change that.

Jews and foreigners interned in Japan were treated more badly and given very poor rations.

A good 1 GB broadband. 

My provider in fairly central Tokyo usually delivers under 20 mb even though it advertises "up to 1 gb." Today it is 2.2 mb download, 28 upload while I do a home-at-home shift. 

This country needs better IT infrastructure - or at least more honest ISPs - if there is to be mass teleworking.

I think you must be talking about your mobile and not a fiber optic line. I haven’t heard of 20 mb for decades with cable modems.

Even my mobile is never less than 50 Mbps. My fiber optic service NTT West is 1 GB but in reality usually 500 Mbps up and down. Home wifi about 100 Mbps.

you seriously need to change your service provider.

A good 1 GB broadband. Cheap location. Some locations prior to the pandemic were offering grants for relocations. Free housing if you stay 10 years.

Bahamas are offering a one year visa to teleworkers.

Shanghai ghetto.

"From 1943, Jews in Shanghai shared a "Designated Area for Stateless Refugees" of 40 blocks along with 100,000 Chinese residents. Most Jews fared as well, often better than other Shanghai residents. The ghetto remained open and free of barbed wire and Jewish refugees could acquire passes to leave the zone. However it was bombed just months before the end of the war by Allied planes seeking to destroy a radio transmitter within the city, with the consequential loss of life to both Jews and Chinese in the ghetto."
