She was living alone as preparations for her studying in Australia next term.
But I agree the adults failed her.

I agree with other.
In my country swimming is part of our sports curriculum at school, even time test for swimming 1km.
In addition we also learn rescue swimming techniques, exam is 'rescuing' someone while both are fully clothed.
When you go for your driver licence a First Aid course is part of it, even incl CPR.
May the people RIP and their families recover soon.

One worry about the sequel, the director won't be doing it as he will be doing a Star Wars movie.

I do like Hanabi.
In my home country a few decades back most people decided to cut back on new years fireworks and instead donate the main the money to charities.
We realised how much my money literally went up in smoke, seeing a big hanabi like the sumida one costs a LOT with on rocket often exceeding 1000 USD.

According to the compensation agreement who was supposed to hand over the money to the comfort women?
My guess would be that the k-gov was supposed to receive the funds as an immediary(agent for the cw).

Who did the j-gov deal with about the compensation agreement the Korean government or directly with the comfort women?

Beautiful but a waste of money, IMHO.
Same money could be used to help the needy.

Hmm, I blame Britain for the current situation.
Where was Israel before 1948 when Britain set up the borders and created the Jewish state, ditto for north Africa and their current disputes.

They should legalise it like my home country.
Rules govern when, where and how. The girls/boys need to have a biweekly health checkup and using Condoms is compulsory.
Street walking is forbidden, only Bordells allowed.

Still no AC or fan here(western Tokyo), 32 degrees inside.

He gave himself up, confessed that a fight went out of hand, type and location of injuries would match his statement.

I think kids should know who to speak to and where to find shelter and help if needed.
Not sure about other areas but in my area many combini and stores are marked as 'child safety' areas.
Also all our primary school kids need to carry an alarm buzzer (120db) attached to their school bag.
Teaching them to talk to no-one is the wrong thing, IMHO.
