    The students are either faced with skipping class, which will impact their grades

    Since when has slacking off meant students' grades will be affected in Japanese universities?

    What I've never understood is why public holidays sometimes fall on a Saturday? Who the heck does this benefit?

    Does anyone remember the 'Do not piss here' sign on the top of Diamond Head in Hawaii? Is it still there? I remember the sign very well because it was written in Japanese only. No sign in English. Now come on, I'm not going to defend the dirty habits of some mainland Chinese tourists (mostly country hicks who got rich quickly but never got the appropriate education), but this hypocrisy and holier than thou attitude really gets my eyes rolling.

    I remember seeing an oyaji peeing without any qualms on a busy road during rush hour outside the station. For crying out loud, the best bit about Japan is the ubiquity of free public toilets.

    fxgai:

    If you are seeing something in the J-media you don't like, I suggest you don't watch it!

    I have no idea whether Japanese TV was showing the match, but I watched it on the net with English commentary. And thank god, no biased reporting. Credit given to both players whenever due and no obvious disappointment in the commentators' voices when Nishikori loses. Nothing against the Japanese athletes, but I'd rather watch them on a foreign channel.

    And as others have said, you have to beat the top players consistently, and not just when they're in the doldrums. Fognini was beating Nadal last year left right and centre - I would hardly call Fognini one of the top players on the tour. And yes, Nishikori did pull out before due to injury. But there's a lot of what if's. Hell, what if Nadal didn't get injured or need surgery for appendicitis? Yeah, what if? Sorry, it's a cruel world - you don't get any ATP points for being injured.

    Lets hope a title is just around the corner for the kid - once he nabs one he could dominate tennis for a decade!

    Oh puleeeez! A decade?! Are you serious? Even Federer is past his peak. Nishokori is now 26, not 16. He may or may not go on to better things but a decade, really???!!!

    No mention of the voter turnout. I'm always surprised to see how many people are against the LDP, but they continue to win elections. I think many of these people who object to the government also object to voting.

    Well, as they say, you get what you deserve. I have no sympathy for people who moan and yet can't be bothered to vote. I'm past caring. Nepotism, lies, scandals, immoral behaviour, xenophobia, Japan you can have 'em all! Tee hee hee.

    Nadal dug a lot of holes for himself, and faced far too many break points. He's improving all the time, but there's still work to be done. Roland Garros is getting more and more interesting. The fact that he was able to get himself out of trouble shows that he is getting closer and closer to his former self. And the fact that Nishikori was not able to take advantage of most of all the gifts thrown at him shows that he is not in the same league as the big ones.

    Well done, Rafa. Do even better next time.

    Japan makes it completely difficult for foreign firms to set up business here, so I hardly think the UK should care what they think.

    sensei258:

    Cycles of global warming and cooling have been happening since time began, regardless. Did the last ice age disappear because of what the cavemen did?

    Have you any idea of the amplitudes and periodicity of these cycles compared to the last 150 years or so? I suggest you do a bit of research instead of just spouting out whatever a republican says he or she thinks. The last time CO2 atmospheric levels were as high as they are now (about 400ppm) was 3 million years ago! The ice age and cavemen didn't even exist then. These so-called cycles related to cavemen you are thinking of only date back to the last interglacial, 125,000 years ago. And never were the CO2 levels as high as they are now. Check out the CO2 measurements from Mauna Loa observatory. 20th-21st century CO2 levels are rising at an alarming rate never seen before. CO2 is a GHG, period. Basic science tells you the relationship between GHG and global temperatures.

    Oh, and the earth is not flat, and it's older than 6,000 years. Just saying, sensei.

    Its getting to the point where the low bow is getting meaningless.

    Yeah, I'd say. So damn sick of seeing bald patches too.

    I think most people here just don't damn about this and just want to eat the stuff to their heart's content. I know that a lot of the younger generation in Hong Kong are now no longer eating shark's fin (mainland China is another story) because they realize what effect it's having on the shark population and the cruelty involved. There just seems to be less awareness and less sympathy here when it comes to the welfare or endangerment of animals.

    It’s pretty much the same model as Subway

    Except Subway is a LOT cheaper.

    I'm glad there's a cheeseless base for those you don't eat cheese, but when you start adding toppings, the total cost increases quicker then you think.

    Nadal has to build on the momentum from Monte Carlo. If he does prove that he's getting closer to his previous form, then the upcoming French Open is going to be very interesting.

    JHS kids extorting money from HS kids. Usually in these stories it's the other way around.

    That was the first thing I noticed in the article!

    dan lewis:

    I don't see why the government should be overly concerned about proving emergency communications to foreigners.

    Fine. In that case, stop stating that you want XXX million tourists to come and visit Japan. You want their money but you don't want to deal with the people themselves. Why not just ask them to wire the money over and not come here at all? The Olympics are coming in 4 years time as Ian Robertson says. The authorities had better start thinking about being prepared. Japan doesn't like having egg on its face in front of the world.

    When my father passed away recently, nurses back home took great care of him (and all other patients) while he was in a coma. Some were local people, others not, including males and females from the Philippines - and the hours they worked were gruelling - 12 hours I believe. But they were all great. It's not an easy job and not many would do it, and we were so grateful to all of them. I remember one Filipino guy who was very nice and chatty - without these friendly nurses, I think I would have been even more depressed. Whether local or not, these nurses are treated the same way because they're all human beings. And one local nurse said she'd entered the profession because she was touched by the care nurses gave her grandfather when he was near death. It doesn't matter where they come from - they deserve respect (and to be paid accordingly).

    instead of getting assigned to orderly tasks or janitorial functions.

    Oh dear. Where we come from, cleaners are hired to do these jobs.

    Would be cool to see Kim Yuna in the mix too in her home country

    Now wouldn't that throw a big spanner in the works!

    But then again, if Kim came back, she wouldn't be Asada's only rival. Let's face it, Asada now has many (younger) rivals now. I think Kim got out during the right time and for the right reasons. Skating at that sort of level must be taxing on the body and mind. Maybe she also felt she'd achieved all her goals - she got gold in Vancouver and the best medal that was on offer in Sochi before the games even started. I also have a feeling Asada is pressured into continuing.

    I know who I'd love to see perform in Pyeongchang. S̶o̶c̶h̶i̶'̶s̶ ̶p̶r̶e̶d̶e̶t̶e̶r̶m̶i̶n̶e̶d̶ ̶w̶i̶n̶n̶e̶r̶ The defending 'champion'.
