    I am no fan of zuckerberg but do have to acknowledge the fact that learning to converse in Mandarin is quite a feat. Given his immense wealth I'm sure he didnt buy a rosetta stone or betlitz cd on mandarin and play it in his car on the way to work each day. I bet he hired top level language teachers and spent hours every day but too bad they didn't work on his intonation skills which are highly important and mostly ignored by folks learning a foreign language. I always am amused to hear a Brit, Aussie or Yank with a strong native accent speaking Japanese and not making any effort to sound like a native Japanese speaker.

    I stopped watching the Olympics a long time ago because it is not the true Olympics where amateur athletes who work hard do something special and unique. The Olympics is a grandstanding farce. Lets see what a joke Brazil becomes. The IOC are crooks just like the folks at the United Nations but we are stupid and allow this type of wasteful debauchery to go on and on.

    Absolutely no sympathy for these clowns who go to PRNK and get thrown in jail. They must be dellusional in the first place to think that they can go to a country like North Korea and peddle religion or any form of Ideology. I.bet his wife Tatyana, sounds like a rooski, will have a big bowl of boorsht waiting on the dinner table when he gets back to Ohio. The US government should have some law that when you do this type of stupid c**p that when you get back home they put you in a US prison to acclimate you back into US society.

    Ha ha ha what a dumb a$$. Even if you try to make counterfeit money, copiers and printer's printware/software have embedded software that will disable the equipment or if connected to the internet will inform the secret service of your actions. If you print anything from your printer it will print random microscopic dots on a sheet In a pattern you can't detect that when assembled will produce the model, serial number of your printer and they can locate you through the method of payment you used. I know this because I have seen the random dot patterns and learned through the service department for the manufacturer who made the machines that the dot patterns are a signature for that machine and will lead the feds directly to your door. Nighty night sleep tight

    Typical political/politician response. The abducted are collateral damage and although unfortunate and forgotten, japan need not waste taxpayers money and time better spent inside Japan fixing local and national problems rather than focusing on a few that are too far gone to matter. The sacrifice of a few to save the total group far outweighs their existence. I know I am going to be thrown under the bus on this one but honestly what in the end is more important, a few or the whole group? Maybe wr shoild all commit sepuku for the better good of the society rather than fixing the pronlem

    As usual too little too late. Politicians are not the right people to control this Ebola pandemic. The only permanent solution is to shut off Africa, isolate anyone that has had contact with anyone remotely in contact with an Ebola patient and let the virus burn itself out.

    This is already such a joke. Too little too late as usual. The horse has been out of the barn for weeks so why bother chasing it with silly procedures that really are not going to stop transmission. Just shut down the borders out of Africa, isolate all people worldwide that have come in contact with any Ebola suspects and put and end to this charade. Action not words Mr. Obama.

    Japan is really a model to use as far as what can be achieved in terms of mass transit. Only problem that the USA would face in order to emulate the transit sucess that Japan has achieved Is It would need to be destroyed in a world war and rebuilt by a competant government which will never happen. 500 years from now the USA won't even occupy a paragraph in history books.

    One bad decision after another. We are all doomed by incompetent politicians who hold our health and lives in their white gloved hands.

    So what advice was obama chan asking abe kun about regarding ebola? Obama is trying to close the barn doors after the horse, cows and pigs have all escaped. It is spin doctor time for the us government. When the dead ebola victims start piling up on the white house lawn are we going to get any serious leadership or just more political rhetoric in news releases. Stay calm, stay inside your homes, keep your windows closed, the government has everything in control.

    The first time I saw taiko was at a small town matsuri. There was a group of young ladies going at those taiko drums like there was no tomorrow. Their rhythm and motions were so primal it really made an impression on me or to me. To this day I cant watch watch women playing taiko without flashbacks to that first experience.

    And so it begins. Terrible news for all the care givers and hospital staff but it seems that all the Ebola infected patients should be kept at the CDC in quarantine and not allowed to be cared for by hospitals that don't know how to deal with this highly contagious virus.

    In medieval times they used to catapult the deceased victims of the black plague over the walls of towns that armies were trying to take over. Perhaps the us military could use the same strategy against ISIS. I'm not kidding.

    Unless countries instigate strict inspections and rules at their borders or points of entry this is going to get nasty before it is all over.

    I can't enlarge the photo without it becoming blurry but from what I can make out, it sure looks like kanji and katakana on the visible part of that sheet of paper. I guess she either reads Nihongo or is smelling him.

    You can blame the Japanese because they have an islander culture that resist change but I would also have to lay a lot of blame on the educators both Japanese and foreign English language teachers. I am not an english teacher and am a business man and In all my years travelling to Japan as well as living for years in Japan I found the vast majority of foreigners teaching english in Japan are on a holiday in Japan. They come to Japan to party and date Japanese women for the most part and are not serious educators in the slightest degree. If any of you can honestly disagree go ahead but think carefully about your true motives for coming to Japan before telling me off.

    Like I said in an other earlier post, mexico is a barbaric country and after posting that comment I was criticized by another poster saying that it is only drug gangs that commit these crimes. Sorry but the police are implicated in this heinous crime and whether or not you want to classify them as gang members, they still wear a police uniform and torture and murder their own blood. Enough said here.

    Sad sad story. My j-wife's parents are avid weekend hikers in the shizuoka ken area and we always are concerned if they are putting themselves in danger because they dont seem to get the idea that their hike isn't a trip to the grocery store. Typical Japanese naivete at its best? ?

    Mexico is one if not the worst country on this planet when It comes to treatment of people. Mexicans have no morals. If you dont believe me come to the south western US like new mexico, arizona or california, or northern parts of Mexico and see for yourself how the treat their own blood. It is barbaric.

    Now there is another Ebola case or suspected case this time of a man who came from Nigeria in a Washington DC hospital. Obama needs to shut down anyone travelling to the USA from that region for starters. Can you imagine how Japan would cope with this if say a Nigerian who lived in Tokyo flew in and ended up in a Tokyo area hospital with Ebola symptoms or was suspected of having the virus.
