    Progress reports from TEPCO have been suspiciously quiet over the past few months. How many thousand of these storage tanks do they'd have now? How are their plans going for disposing of it all? How's their progress with removing the fuel rods? Is no news good news? Or, is no news no news?

    Hey bjohnson23! She walked behind me from behind another parked car! I love the way all these people find fault very easily, but have no factual rebuttals. Petty!

    The fact still remains, you need to be very careful driving in Japan due to reckless pedestrians, cyclists and the odd crazy gaijin escaping a factual rebuttal on Japan Today! :P

    I'm not defending the driver (totally), but many times I've had kids and teenagers just walk straight out in front of me regardless of the intersection status. Just yesterday I had some 14-15 year old girl happily listening to her iPod walk right behind my car as I was reverse parking. It was only by chance I caught a glimpse of movement out of the corner of one mirror and stopped. You need 360' and 3D vision to avoid hitting reckless pedestrians and cyclists in Japan - and for dodging reckless truck drivers, but that's unrelated. Furthermore, here's a bit of related trivia, they recently changed the law so that, if you hit a kid under the age of seven their parents can be charged. Again, treating the symptoms and not the cause!

    More than 1 million are besieged in Syria,

    And soon to be coming to a refugee centre near you! The western world has to band together to stop this crap! Accepting millions of refugees is not the answer! The cost will be high, but not as high as the trouble many of the refugees are creating in other countries. The seem to be escaping the oppression of their home land only to bring the same oppression to their new host land.

    He looks like another gutless little manga-haired punk that's never had a fight in his life, except for beating on women and children. The 'black van' description is pretty vague. Surely the police must have more info on him. I doubt if he will show up dead. He wouldn't have the guts to take his own life. With so many of these creepy manga-haired punks running around its no surprise that 50% of women under 35 want to remain single. Hope they find him soon.

    So, it's taken the economists three years to realise this? I knew it from day one! His strategies are all based on the ideals of the bubble era and no longer apply to the world's oldest population. The international markets he was relying on no longer belong to Japan. The majority of consumers are much worse off now than they were when Abe took office and the economy is still in the garbage. He cut corporate taxes at the expense of the workers who got bugger all! Japan only has one major natural resource, its workforce and the economy will not recover until the workforce is supported. When he initiated the first of the sales tax increases he stated it was to pay off the public debt, but that has not happened. It's been used for everything but his original plan. Hopefully, voter apathy can be stopped and Abe and his corporate cronies will be voted out of office.

    A 50-year-old 'mummy's boy' wouldn't clean up his room so she torched it? I'm not sure whether to laugh at the absurdity or cry at the ridiculousness!

    It seems more like a murder suicide to me, but that is just speculation.

    It's common knowledge in the western world that the nazis adopted this symbol from the Buddhist church. It seems that only the Japanese people are not aware of this.

    And there's the rub. But given that many chaps in my office give the tips of their fingers a ceremonial sprinkle of water at best after using the lavatory, don't expect much to be done in this area.

    Interesting comment! Are you implying that men spread the flu by touching their willies?

    Chicv - Citations needed since your affirmation runs contrary to reported evidence, unless you want to affirm this solely on your own authority.

    According to the WHO faces must masks must be 12 ply surgical masks and changed every twenty minutes. These paper masks that people wear are nothing more than dust masks and, as noted above, people do not wear the properly. In fact, these paper masks create a fantastic warm and moist environment for viruses to thrive. The saliva in your mouth is a natural antibacterial. And, about the flu shots, again according to the WHO, over 50% of all flu shot recipients still get the flu.

    Citizens are being advised to wear protective face masks when in public areas, receive flu shots and thoroughly wash their hands. In particular, schools and facilities for the elderly across Japan are promoting a flu prevention campaign.

    Face masks do nothing and flu shots are as fake as the company that produces them. Washing your hands is effective as long as you keep your fingers out of your eyes and nose. The flu virus is spread by contact and the virus is only contagious in the first 24 hours. Just wash your hands and leave the face masks to the brainwashed minions.

    This is not something you would see the Abe government doing. They like the fact that only their mates vote.

    It's sad to think that most of those 3,000 school bags belong to the dead. It's even sadder to think that the whole families are also dead and that is why they were not returned. I drove up the coast to Miyagi a few months ago and it is still a wasteland and has a very eerie and spooky feel. The nuclear disaster in Fukushima has stolen the limelight of the real human tragedy and the plight of the people of the north-east coast of Japan. And, there are still tens of thousands of people displaced and suffering five years after the event. It's maddening to think that Japan can give billions of dollars away in foreign aid when all these people are still living in temporary housing and shelters.

    I always said Japan was a generation behind the rest of the world. This brings flashbacks of women throwing underwear and Tom Jones concerts way back in the early seventies.

    Sex obviously sells! I'm curious about the audience ratio of male to female. No doubt it was mostly male!

    Yeah, the giant pension fund that is still insufficient by a third. The reason they wanted to put it on the stock market was to gamble it in the hope of getting a positive return, but it is not a wise investment in an ageing society.

    So, let this be a lesson to all you stingy parents that won't give their teenage parasites money to go to gaming centres with their friends! This is the state of the current generation! They expect everything for nothing! If I wanted money when I was that age I had to earn It! And sadly, he will only get a slap on the wrist and maybe one or two year in juvy, if that much!

    It's odd that foreign news agencies are making a strong point that this eruption is only 50 kilometres away from a nuclear power plant. However, there is no mention of it what-so-ever in the Japanese news.

    If you have ever been into an exotic pet store in Japan you will not be surprised by this at all! There are so many protected and endangered animals for sale it's disgusting! However, this is Japan and international law and obligation does not apply here. Just the ink about the situation with whales and dolphins.
