    I think the victims' families should sue the game's publisher, Niantic.

    Of COURSE you do. This, despite Niantic having numerous prompts covering things like playing while operating a vehicle that must be acknowledged before you can play the game. Here's how the courtroom scene would go:

    Niantic Lawyer: "Your honor, my client hereby presents evidence that the perpetrator had acknowledged multiple times that the game should not be played while driving. Therefore Niantic performed their due diligence in providing proper guidance on when the game should be played."

    Judge (after examining evidence): "This evidence does appear exculpatory. Does Plaintiff's Counsel have evidence that the perpetrator did not observe these warnings prior to playing the game?"

    Plaintiff's Lawyer: "Plaintiff acknowledges that such prompts are required to be acknowledged before the game can be played."

    Judge: "Then the defendant had done everything they could do short of following the user around and slapping the phone out of their hands if they tried playing while driving. This lawsuit is dismissed."

    Insisting on English during the negotiations is just as unfair as insisting on Japanese. It seems to me the equitable solution is for both sides to use the language they are comfortable with, and the other side bring interpreters to the negotiations.

    So, when I book any flights, I try to avoid this type of aircraft (on the aforementioned trip to Japan, the aircraft type was changed (after booking) from a 767 or 777 to a Dreamliner - grrr).

    It's not the aircraft's fault, it's the airlines' fault and your fellow passengers' fault for your lack of legroom. The airline decides how many seat rows will go in each section and they will pack as many seat rows into the fuselage as they can and still fill the flights. If the airline wanted, they could make EVERY row a first-class row - with a corresponding drop in passengers-per-flight. It's not profitable so it's not ever going to happen, but it's certainly POSSIBLE.

    Based solely on the news reports here (and granted, that view is guided by JT's editorial policies for what is printed and what is not), the biggest personal hazard in Japan exists from your family members: filicide, matricide, fratricide... that's where the majority of violent crimes in Japan happen.

    Posted in: The government is determined to promote measures to make the country the safest in the world. But heinous crimes aimed at children and women and frauds targeting elderly people are still rampant. Further efforts are needed to address this.

    New kind of "booth babe"... Don't have to talk/know about the product; don't have to wear swimsuits or hot pants and a halter-top; and don't have to endlessly smile for 10,000 photographs. PLUS you're off your feet for the whole gig! RAKKII!

    The American papers are pointing out that this is the U.S.A.'s largest medal haul (in a non-boycotted Olympics) in almost a century.

    I'd like to congratulate the countries who received their FIRST EVER Olympic medal, and for ten of those countries that first-ever medal was GOLD:

    Bahrain (Women's Steeplechase)

    Fiji (Men's Rugby)

    Independent (Double Trap Shoot)

    Ivory Coast (Taekwondo)

    Jordan (also Taekwondo)

    Kosovo (Women's Judo)

    Puerto Rico (Women's Tennis)

    Tajikistan (Men's Hammer Throw)

    Vietnam (10-meter Air Pistol)

    Omedetou Gozaimasu!

    A shooting at a crowded house party early Sunday left 13 people wounded, and police in Connecticut are investigating what they say is an unusual outburst of violence in the state’s largest city.

    Bridgeport is only 16mi (26km) from Newton, CT... site of the Sandy Hook Elementary mass murders. I guess the city police figure the city's borders are some sort of anti-violence barrier so what happens outside has no chance of happening inside?

    This silly brouhaha has gone on too long.

    Punish the swimmers and forget about it.

    I disagree. Future Olympians need to be presented the facts of this incident in order to show them that being an Olympian does NOT give you carte blanche to do whatever you want. As an American, Lochte represented ME (as well as all other Americans) and the blow he gave all Americans with his lies and deceit about his vandalism is a personal punch to the gut. "The Lochte Incident" needs to live-on and be presented to all potential Olympians as a reminder of the responsibility they assume when they represent their country at the Olympics.

    Religious movies don't have the draw they used to as more people view religious dogma for the crowd-control it is.

    There was a time when movies/plays set during period covered by the Old and/or New Testaments would crush at the box office (The Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, Jesus Christ Superstar, etc.). No longer. Even "Noah" isn't impressive compared to the older titles when you adjust for inflation and ticket prices.

    Not surprised they cancelled flights during the peak, but surprising they left the tower. I suppose they must backup systems for controlling (not landing or departures) air traffic though? Don't need windows if no one is going to land.

    The high-altitude ARTCC's are usually not located on the grounds of an airport. Here in the Washington DC area, the Potomac ARTCC is located out in Leesburg, Virginia. It handles the enroute traffic from Pennsylvania down to North Carolina and out past West Virginia. it's only when the aircraft is within 15 or so miles of its departure/arrival airport that the tower handles them. Once an airport is closed, there's no need to man the tower until it's re-opened.

    Trump did not approve possession of nuclear weapons by Japan.

    It is interesting to see how words are taken out of context.

    It's also interesting how sycophants will deny facts staring them in their face. In Trump's OWN words, he advocates Japan acquiring nuclear weapons. Of course, you'd have to take your fingers out of your ears and open your eyes to witness it, though:

    I've had this idea for about five years now: Every birth retains the umbilical cord and somehow preserves it for use as source material at some later date if/when that person needs clone therapy. The key would be whether the tissue could be given to the parents for safekeeping or would require some prohibitively expensive storage process.

    Others called for a boycott of the film, due for release in November.

    Really? Boycott a film because some PR company wasn't happy with Hong Kong's skyline and wanted to add a large structure in the posters? Chill people. They're PR weenies.

    LOL I warned this was likely. Even if Futenma was vacated by the Americans, there was nothing that said the base wouldn't be taken over by the JSDF. This "minimal" maintenance keeps that possibility alive.

    Oh....The good old days...the old NBC commercials; "The thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat" - Yeah I remember that and the bobsled accident video during the "agony of defeat" part of the commercial......indeed - the good old days

    Twas ABC, not NBC. The "agony of defeat" clip was of Yugoslavian ski jumper Vinko Bogataj during the 1970 Winter Olympics in Oberstdorf, Germany falling in the chute during his second run and tumbling off the edge. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKEDD1i4oGk

    From LBJ to Obama, black Americans have gone down hill in every way. They have been pandered to for so long by the democrats that they believe getting on government subsistence is a lifetime achievement. Their children are raised by single mothers who are on welfare, EBT, WIC, get government cheese, etc. Sadly, the offspring think that living like that is normal. Nothing will change for them until they wake up and realize that the democrats have made it a point to keep them on the welfare plantation. . . .

    The sad thing is that Texas A&M Aggie hasn't the slightest inkling that he just confirmed what everyone has been suspecting about today's form of "Republican". Bigotry in its purest form and said with an absolutely straight face: "African Americans are incapable of improving their lives on their own and must rely on the government to do so." The Republican mindset is truly disgusting.

    Pokemon No: Can a place declare the game off-limits?

    No need to get legal about it, just have Niantic exclude Gyms, Pokestops, and random Pokemon spawns from happening and players will naturally go elsewhere.

    What effect do you think the increasingly bitter U.S. presidential campaign is having on the U.S. image around the world?

    Not much. Most of the world already thinks us Americans are mindless, violent thugs who will shoot you between the eyes just as soon as engage you in a debate. Trump's just furthering the stereotype.
