Not happy to read that Facebook only has 4% Latinos working there?? Maybe we Latinos need to make a new rival to EL FACE, as many people call it, South of the Border.

You are right Educator, I am right but about WRONG accident. Kind of silly for these tv guys to go on about another accident back in 2010, so that got me confused, and yes it seems like a miracle that nobody died in this accident. Those trees seem to have stopped that train from falling even further, I am happy you watch and understand J tv news, too many folk on here do not.

Funny nobody here mentioning the A1 Class war criminals, that were hung after Japan lost to the USA, this is what most Asians (Koreans, Chinese, Filipinos) hate about this shrine, Yasukuni.

Too many stupid, lazy parents out there, and it is NOT only in Japan, but my guess these idiot fools are ALL over this planet!! RIP poor little angel

So maybe, long, long ago, the Koreas where part of what we call CHINA?? But what we now call CHINA now, was just a bunch of smaller fiefdoms, all fighting each other for power and killing each other, if the HISTORY CHANNEL is correct.

What the hell are Syrians doing in Australia or Australians (my guess of Syrian decent) doing fighting these wars in Syria, Iraq etc...?? And we still have idiots clamoring for GUANTANAMO illegal prisions in Cuba (but run by the USA) to be closed??? When we have ANIMALS not only cutting off the heads of soldiers but giving it to their KIDS to show off and post on TWITTER???!!! Bastards like these need to be hunted down and blow up into many bloody pieces!! We can pray for PEACE but these evil bastard terrorists need to be ZAPPED and ASAP!!

Cricky must be smoking banana peels again, TYPHOONS hit JAPAN and this part of ASIA like clock work every year! But just because they do happen every year, even the best emergency services in the world can NOT stop MOTHER NATURE!! Just like in the USA, etc..where typhoons are called HURRICANES also happen every year and not matter how high technology, but MOTHER NATURE can be very, very dangerous, and this typhoon Number 11(called How long outside of Japan??) seems to be going out to the Sea of Japan and away from Tokyo, so that makes me happy!!

On the US/Mexico border, from Baja California all the way to Tamaulipas (one Texas) there are JAPANESE and other factories making cars, trucks, tvs, computers, etc...thanks to NAFTA (the North American, meaning Canada, USA, Mexico Free Trade Agreement) so if you are a business man, and you want to make more profits $$$, it only makes sense to put Japanese factories South of the Border.

$$ talks! Japan now is in bad, bad shape! If Japan can get more $$ from decent, hard working Muslim tourists?? It is a huge market that Japan has not actively tried to take advantage of. But I think, slowly but surely, Japan will try to make itself more international, like Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc...

While people here complain about illegal immigration etc..guess who is getting all the HARD, dirty, low paying jobs done?? Yes, all the poor men and women who come up from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala etc..to clean your house, feed your kids, dogs, water your lawns, pick your vegetables. How do you have your cake and ea it too?? The USA needs hard workers who are happy to work for $3/hour while most US citizens look down at even jobs at Mc Donalds etc..starting at $15.00 an hour! So guess, who gets the low paying, dirty and dangerous jobs?? Construction etc...no benefits, no nothing, you get hurt and you get fired! This is the messed up reality of illegal workers in the USA.

Serrano, I think everybody knows Snowden is just some MOLE for the CIA, NSA etc...but maybe it is a bit too much to say that Russia does not make anything, but come on, how many shoes?? shirts? computers? beef? say MADE IN RUSSIA?? I have never seen anything except for Vodka! and if we compare CHINA???? Now almost EVERYTHING and ANYTHING is MADE IN CHINA! So back to Mr.Obama, I think he is just getting a bit upset with all the mess going on in the Ukraine and my guess is that Mr.Obama does NOT want to go down in history like that wimp JIMMY CARTER!!

Muslims and with $$ are IMPORTANT tourists! Just the other day in the GOTEMBA outlet malls, I saw so many tourists from Malaysia?? Not sure, but the ladies with veils etc..and as I was looking for a bathroom, in that same corridor now they have PRAYER ROOMS, yes, just like back in Malaysia! So I think this is good for our Muslim amigos that want to enjoy Japan without feeling guilty about missing their prayers or not having HALAL food. I saw the Halal food mark at a few restaurants there in Gotemba, so Christians can eat anthing, Hindus no beef, Buddhists depends (as for me NO McDonalds Chicken nuggets after seeing those nasty videos from CHINA!!) and as for athiests and agnotics, who cares?? Haha, maybe they will like Chicken Mc Nuggets??
