The guy has mental issues and is doing his best obly at being deceitful, he has a history of weird contradictory and abusive behaviour. Best to strike him off the political seat and put him to work in factory so he regains some humility and honest appreciation.

There were many complaints by zushi locals to enforce restrictions due to the many fights, instances of harassment on the beach by young groups ( chinpira) and also several stabbings and cases of vandalism, and we are not takking about just a few.
Also if you had spent any time down there last summer, there were many private party tent zones setup by supoosed chinpira where they setup tents etc and harassed beachgoers who frayed into their zone.
Therefore the zushi local government and police force has come down fairly hard to prevent the same from occuring this year.
Good on them.

Nishimura's shocking refereeing has embarassed Japan.
Although I support Brasil, the ridiculous penskty ruined that game for croatia and has left many pondering why FIFA continue utilizing sub standards referees in duch a big tournament as the world cup.
Absolutely embarassing to watch Nishimura's incompetence throughout that match.

The reckless way truck drivers drive in saitama I hope this is investigated well and not just closed as youngsters being to blame. It may well be the youngsters fault but
I really have serious doubts about the mentality or the ability to follow the speed regs of truck drivers as many just tailgate, massively overspeed and often drive too close to the centre line. Even on rainy days which makes it even more dangerous for other drivers.

Generalizaruon and misleading title.
Also the claim about the twenty top score getters being women is unsubstantiated .
I support women in the workforce and executive roles, I would be happier if there were better skilled reporters and editors reporting news instead of "creating" or embellishing stories to get the ratings up.

@serrano laughable. But it would be good to use to keep an eye on russian, north korean and chinese movements near Japans territorial waters and Im sure it would prove effective.

Incompetent police. They had the email proving he made a death threat yet they did not arrest him, or put any surveillance on the deranged guy, just put the onus on the poor woman to move house and job( very difficult to do on her income)
Great job once again J-cops.

China once again has no dignity or honour.
The 1972 agreement between Japan and china put all such disputes at rest.
Looks like they can agree when it suits them, then renege completely later on like an immature spoilt child.
Im firmly behind Japan on this one.

If China thought it was gaining an advantage by conducting naval exercises all along the indian ocean and south east.
It shows that Japan is the better chess player, cause now it will more or less have a front seat view from satellites and radar into absolutely every military and fishing activity in the area including the ability of looking deep into mainland china anytime it wants.
Well done china for showing your hand against the philippines, Japan learnt from this and has tsken a powerful advantage with ghis wholly legal manuevre.

Those sailors are opportunists, the US military doesnt maje drcisions based on external data, the sailors suing just want a a wuick way to get money. Pure nonsense. Its the Pentagon they should sue, no wait, they cant because they were performing tgeir duty under under and under the vonditions they signed up on.

This is a move just to reassure Japan and also to let China know it isn't totally pleased with its peovocative conduct.
But its not really going to affect chinas celebrations.

With the head missing I wonder if she was hit by a small boat propellor that might even be the cause of death, heads just dont come off, and sharks go for limbs or softer areas, very odd...

They built on the pre- existing kintetdu dept store, extending the doartment store considerably.
This is one readon they were limited in design as it wasnt built from scratch but buiilt it on top of the pre existing dept store. Quite amazing building actually even if the architecture isnt spectacular...
Theres another huge skyscraper going up just actoss the road next to Qs mall which will be completed in a year or two.

Japanese schools should hire professionally qualified and licensed English teachers from overseas.
The Japanese teachers albeit but a few are just not up to it... They over teach grammar and confuse students with errors.
Spoken English should bevtaught by either Jspanese that have been abroad and spesk fluently or natives English speakers brought in to teach communication.
I know many schools in Japan where the Japanese teacher cannot even dpeak English yet he/she is teaching English... It doesnt work.

New Zealand is a fantastic place, however dog attacks have slways been a concern especially considering most dogs in NZ are the larger or more aggressive types used to protect property.
They really need to tighten the laws down there it has always been an issue and I hope the owner responsible for the dogs receives at minimum a hefty fine and then some.

I agree with you Lincolnman, Alex80 is here solely as an anti american. He has lost perspective in his posts. The US has interests in the region and does flout influence but Japans policies are pretty much in the hands of Japans politicians.
