    Wow! That's such a relief! I thought the kids were just naturally stupid!

    It wouldn't have anything to do with a lack of sleep or poor study habits, would it? Just blame the mobile phones! Next week we'll see the same report, but mobile phones will be replaced by video games.

    My mind boggles with comments about this event. The only one I can post is, let's hope the security is high and there isn't a repeat of what happened at the AKB meet and greet event when that loon went nuts with a saw. I have visions of near Y every nutcase in the land lining up for days to get a squeeze.

    This is the result of the failed economic logic of Abenomics, the success of which, relies on increased consumer spending, but they did nothing to ensure corporations would pass on their tax cuts to consumers so they could spend more. This is only the beginning of a downward spiral that can only result in a complete economic failure.

    Tokyo—the world’s biggest consumer of tuna

    Tokyo? Should that be 'Japan'? It almost seems as if they are proud of this fact.

    This is a great move, but consumers should expect a double price increase of tuna.

    “We would like to deeply apologise again for the disruption and concern that the Fukushima Daiichi accident caused to many people, first and foremost the people of Fukushima,” TEPCO said in a statement following the verdict.

    I've had TEPCO apologies up to my eyeballs! The meltdown was a direct result of mismanagement and laxed safety procedures. It has been verified and the TEPCO admin have admitted to it, but not one if them has bee brought up on any criminal charges what-so-ever! It's absolutely disgusting! Steal a bicycle and you get a fine and a criminal record, but cause a triple nuclear meltdown that resulted in displacing 200,000 people, sprayed half the country with radiation and has caused many deaths from hardship and suicide and you get to make a public apology? There isn't enough money in Japan to fully compensate the amount of people effected by this man-made disaster.

    the frequency of thyroid patients was not too different between areas directly around the Fukushima plant evacuation zone, and areas further away

    "Not too different?" What exactly does that mean? This whole article reads like a defensive and non-conclusive pile of rubbish! How does the thyroid cancer rate in children compare with the rate in say, Okinawa? Thyroid cancer is not a common ailment in children! Unless, they come from areas near the Fukushima plant, of course!

    Hope he takes his check book with him! Although, he didn't take it to Fukushima when he went there, so he probably won't take it to Hiroshima either.

    This is about security. You have to remove a motorbike helmet when you enter a bank or a store. It should be the same for religious headdress and for masks as well. One world = One rule! Ban the burqa!

    Posted in: In some countries, there is a ban on adults and children wearing religious clothing and symbols such as burqas, veils, head scarves, skullcaps, turbans and crucifixes in public places like schools, recreational facilities and so on. What’s your stance?

    It's good to see this company has set up,relief drivers working three hour shifts. It's quite unlike the one last year that killed people who had been on the road for eight hours straight. I'm very curious to know what the driver was actually doing that distracted him enough to not see a large truck. I also wonder how long the drivers' actual shifts are. Yeah,they drive for three hours at a time, but how long are they working in one shift?

    Does anybody care that this happens so often here? I'd read this kind of news once or twice a year where I come from. It seems to be a weekly occurrence in Japan, or more!

    Um, Daniel, that is not correct. Hit and runs are always reported on the news cos it's such a cowardly scumbag act.

    It's quite depressing to see how often hit and runs occur in Japan. The driver was probably drunk too.

    the kitchen staff were preparing food using a charcoal fire at the time and the restaurant’s windows were all closed.

    Brilliant idea!

    Well, that's pretty simple really. Just don't build them! Problem solved!

    he needed money for living expenses

    Well, obviously, the answer was to get a job, but now, hopefully, he will have a new job as somebody's batch in prison!

    Noda has it wrong! Failure to ensure companies pass on their tax cuts as salary increases to compensate for the sales tax hike poses a HUGE risk! These Japanese politicians are just thieves! The whole point of the sales tax hike is to increase revenue for the government to pay of their huge national debt - money they owe the people - However, they are just taking money from the people to pay back the money they borrowed from the people! Yeah, it sounds really stupid, but that is what they are doing! The success of the sales tax hike relies on increased spending, but they have done nothing to promote spending. Japanese economists still believe that, 2+2=3 and their blind ambiguity just proves it! They are just playing '52 pick up'!

    weighed about 42 kilograms and had been wire bundled

    Yep! Only true professionals rely on fencing wire! Professional idiots that is! I've driven cranes, forklifts been a doggy and workplace health and safety officer. So many of these industrial accidents in Japan just seem to be so stupid! The other day there was a huge steel fence slab fell into the footpath killing a pedestrian and six months or so ago there were a couple of workers killed when a wall collapsed on them after being hit by a crane. Yeah, accidents happens, but incidents occur! Obviously, this bundle was insufficiently bundled and these workers were standing too close. It was only a 45k beam, but it was enough to kill them. It must have fallen onto their heads and crushed their skulls like melons!

    Famous last words: "Stick a bit of fencing wire around it mate! She'll be right!"

    Russia detains Japanese whaling research vessel

    The only reference to 'research' is in the headline. It's not a 'research' vessel at all! It's a 'hunting' vessel! Russia is quite within its rights to keep the 'hunting' vessel and turn it into soup cans. Let's hope they do!
