    Hopefully this is just rhetoric - the world hardly needs another daft, right-wing-religious bunch of douche bags with a decent army

    this is a s disaster for the world's premier rugby competition. It has been continually diluted with ever increasing numbers of weak team - now 2 more easy beats. It's getting to the point where we'll only watch the NZ/ SA games and the finals series. Who needs to see a Japanese team being thrashed 100 points by Canterbury for goodness sake!

    How utterly appalling to the Japanese consumer who continues to suffer at the hands of japan's archaic and anti competitive market protection. Nz could supply butter to counter all of this shortage. Roll on the TPP!

    It took shrewd guidance by NZ's best government in a generation to bring this huge money-maker to NZ. Amazing that the partisan and naïve in godzone argued against having the movies made here...

    Of those 3 storage mediums there is actually a correct answer: CDs. The cycles of discreet sound they use are far greater than a human ear can discern and so provide the best listening experience for the majority of music listeners. Whilst it is true that the analogue technology of vinyl provides a truer representation of the music, the equipment needed to realise that representation AND the fragile state of the medium (always degrading) make it a choice really only extreme, high-end listeners. Mp3s are a con - they provide a fraction of the actual recorded sound and our brains just fill in the rest.

    Several posters above mentioned a number of better mediums (if less readily available)

    well done NZ. Massive respect for this NZ government - easily our best leaders in 3 decades

    perhaps Abe can get a clue about economics from her.... he clearly has no idea.

    Calves are worth $5000 in japan? And consumers still don't back the TPP? Japanese agriculture lives in a fantasy world

    Japan should never have been invited into the TPP. Their and the USs recalcitrance on tariffs has led to nothing but the endangering of a trade pack for the other countries who are ready and willing to progress. Japan's desire to protect their massively expensive and inefficient agriculture sector is a joke - turf Japan aside and move on with the rest of the world.

    @MGigante - that is incorrect. Obama and Akihiito are equals in state functions. If it reflected reality of their positions ... Obama probably wouldn't bother to make the time for Akihito as he is merely a figurehead of little importance.

    Obama is not required to bow - As head of State they are equal in status. Obama is in reality far more important and powerful, but in state-terms they are equals and not required to bow. Or they could adopt a Japanese custom and bow as equals. It's ridiculous anyway - Obama is an actual world leader. Akihito is just a quaint figurehead.

    anyone who supports higher taxes as an incentive to have babies has little to zero understanding of economics. You can vote that down as much as you like. It doesn't make you any smarter.

    would tax any married couple without children (for example, after three years of marriage) much more heavily than those who have a child or children. There is no reason a woman should get married, be a housewife, not work, and not raise kids, and receive a pension at the end of it for nothing

    That may be close to the least intelligent thing I have read on this site for a long while... and there is a very long list of prime examples to choose from
