    Are you proud of yourselves "environmentally friendly " Japan?

    Really? Where are you sitting as you type these words? In your home in the US, where you heat up your entire house or apartment to get you throught the cold winter? Do you share (clean) bath water with your family? or use that (clean) bath water to do your laundry?

    Now Japan obviously has not reacted quickly enough with regards to sustaining this pacific bluefin tuna, but I highly doubt that you are in any position to criticize their progression for preserving the environment, unless of course you can prove that your environmental footprint is less than the average Japanese citizen.

    Wasnt Toyota investigated for deciet about their acceleration problems not so long ago as well? Is this a cultural pattern or just coincidence?

    Ford and Firestone had a major cover-up scandal years ago, GM had a fire-prone ignition switch cover-up scandal, and now, actually they are going through the same thing AGAIN with ignition switches... so to answer your question, it's neither cultural nor coincidence, it's common among large corporations.

    In America you cannot be charged for "looking at someone too long or" for saying something offensive. The "offensive" nature of speech has time and again ben stricken down by SCOTUS as vague and overbroad.

    Yes, you're right; I was thinking of someone doing those things in the workplace where they could be held liable for harrassment....

    Can't stop him from entering the country...

    Actually, I think he was booted out of Australia because he was "Teaching" people his views on how to treat women. There is also an article about how the Canadian Immigration Minister may ban him as well because they do not want someone to facilitate violence onto women/Canadian citizens. http://globalnews.ca/news/1662001/online-campaign-hopes-to-ban-pick-up-artist-julien-blanc-from-canada/

    You see, so I'm sure that Japan would be able to find countless ways to ban someone from their country if they wanted to... the question is "if they want to"...

    JTDanManNov. 11, 2014 - 01:21AM JST

    And highly, highly offensive? Well, I'll let Mr. Fry speak for me here:

    "It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so f****ing what?!"

    JTDanMan: There may be some truth to what you're saying in some other cases, but in this case, you don't have to touch someone to be charged with a crime nowadays. In Amercica or Canada, all you have to do is look at someone for too long, or say something "offensive", and you can be charged (it's been like that for a while now too). This idiot is condoning and teaching other men to choke and unconsentually touch women in places they may not want to be touched. I think that's offensive enough for most people without there being a question of legitimacy.

    No trash cans?.... well, you can thank Asahara Shoko for that one. But I still agree with Knobby Roads; if we know there are no trash cans, then we need to think ahead; not become self-centered and ignorant.

    I voted 'Yes'. I think when you are trying to achieve a goal, it goes without saying that you should first review and understand the current conditions so that you know just how much effort needs to be put forth and what methods need to be used. In this case, I believe sexism is so deeply entrenched into Japanese society, that such extreme measures are necessary... just like how the US has "quotas" for minority employment (not across the board, mind you).

    Posted in: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has stated his government’s goal of boosting the ratio of women in senior positions in companies in Japan to 30% by 2020. Do you think it is a good idea to set numerical targets like that?

    Call me cynical - but I wonder how much cold-hard yen was paid for this so-called "blessing"?

    I don't blame you for being cynical. It's pretty common for Religious clergies around the world to rake in the bucks/yen. Even the buddhist monks in Japan drive Benzes and Lexuses (although they'll show up at a funeral in their "Kei" car, lol).

    Waste of water? Unbelievable. If you can watch this and still criticize the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, then you're nothing but a selfish, heartless, and jaded individual

    I never said that the cause was a waste. I think the cause is an excellent one. Like I said before, I just think that for awareness, there have got to be better options than this. From someone living in a 3rd world country, these people just look like a bunch of rich people throwing away perfectly clean water, partly to seek attention. Water is a precious commodity to some people... it's not free, and it's not readily available to everyone. A little more thought for a great cause is all I'm saying.

    Again, I agree that it's for a great cause, and I was actually half joking when I originally posted "waste of water", but since some people quickly became offensive in trying to defend the cause, it actually made me feel like following through in playing "the devil's advocate". With that said, what are they going to do next year? Crack some eggs over their heads? Pour a gallon of milk over their heads? Why not? It's for a great cause and it'll be fun!

    Anyone who is cynical, clueless or mean-spirited enough to call this a "waste of water" just doesn't have a soul.

    @Johnbecker: Well, why not drink a litre of water instead then or something? There are people that could use clean water, places that are experiencing droughts. My point is whoever came up with this idea should have put more thought into it.

    I think back to those times very fondly.

    There's a fine line sometimes between useful technology and distractions to a healthy lifestyle. This is going to sound so very cliche, but things were so much simpler before emails, internet, and smart phones. I think having less distractions and less choices allowed us to focus more on certain things.... which is a good thing.

    @Jorge Gonzalez: I hear what you're saying, but think of it this way: The only thing that any of the technology you mentioned does is speed up what was already there. Some things in life really need to be faster, especially emergencies. But otherwise, where does it end? If you're bored at the doctor's office, why not think about your schedule next week or where to go on your next vacation? Or, why not pick up a women's magazine? or a community newspaper? Who knows, maybe you'll learn something new by picking up and reading something that you don't usually read.

    Posted in: Are you old enough to remember a time when there were no cell phones, no email, no Internet and no way to keep you connected to the world 24 hours a day? If so, do you sometimes think back on that time fondly?

    He declined to confirm his client's whereabouts but said the DNA samples had come from Japan.

    Seriously? They could be DNA samples from his pet dog for all they know! ....ok, well, maybe his uncle or something. I still don't understand why someone would do this if it's not linked to human trafficking.

    And yet, here we are, NINE DAYS after the killing. And still no official version of the events. Yeah, why is that?

    "St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch said a grand jury could begin hearing evidence in the case as early as Wednesday to determine whether Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will face criminal charges." http://news.yahoo.com/ferguson-live-updates-115432700.html

    Yabits: What Kuya 808 said.

    Mr. Brown was approached by the officerwhile walking down the middle of the street with a companion, a series of events ensued that resulted in Mr. Brown being fatally shot. The exact nature of those events has yet to be clearly verified. So to state unequivocally that Mr. Brown was summarily executed by the police officer for the act of jaywalking is a logical fallacy.

    Yabits, I am not for or against the officer in question. I am waiting for the smoke to clear and the truth to come out. All I'm saying is that if the victim's family wants justice, they could do so without all of this publicity (which just ignites the mob mentality of some people). Instead, they've turned it into a drama, or a circus of distractions, which probably will end up making the truth come out later than sooner.

    They do not trust the same system that allowed this cop to kill this kid to supply them with the facts regarding this matter.

    So they are going to trust a lawyer and the media who will jump at anything little chance for a story? I can understand that they don't trust the local police force, but that's why the FBI is involved.... but they are still investigating.

    Until all the facts are in the officer should be a suspect. That's right, a suspect. As a suspect, being considered legally innocent does not mean that charges can't be filed against him. The sooner, the better.

    That would be true if this were considered to be a homocide case. But right now, amidst all this chaos and buzz created by people who weren't even at the scene, which only adds to the confusion, that is the first thing the FBI needs to figure out; whether this was a homocide, or an officer acting in the line of duty.

    Helmets on cyclists can prevent this result!

    Helmets will only prevent the skull from cracking open. The brains inside the skull are like Big Pucchi pudding (sorry for the weird allusion). A helmet will only help in low velocity crashes, and if there is enough velocity, the pudding inside the container will end up being mush.

    Jack SternAug. 17, 2014 - 09:53AM JST

    And yes, helmets must be worn by law.

    And yes, helmets should be worn by common sense. At any rate, most motor bikes are only meant to carry 2 people, so we know that at least one of these boneheads didn't have a helmet (since no one carries 3 helmets)... not that a helmet would have helped in this situation anyway.

    Everything is so premature. I don't understand why anyone (especially the rioters in Ferguson, and even the posters here) could draw so many conclusions based on so little knowledge of what happened. That's what sucks about this whole thing. And do you know who is driving this whole "Guilty until proven innocent" notion? ....that's right; the victim's family, their lawyer, and the media.

    Has anybody seen this movie "Eternal Zero"? I'm curious to know how it portrays the Imperialist J-Government.

    @Jerseyboy: I can't help but think that you're treading on thin ice here. In one post you say this:

    Ossan -- nonsense. Both are acts of terrorism by desperate forces driven by a fanatical belief in a faith-based ideology.

    ...and then in another you say this:

    Terror has long been a part of war, and will continue to be, as it is a valid and effective strategy...

    Other than the fact that you're contradicting yourself, the "definition" of terrorism is beside the point; I believe the point that Ossan was making is that Kamikaze pilots are not the same as "people" who blow up civillians in a public location, or hijack a commercial flight and fly it into a non-military structure full of civillians. Camman80 on the other hand, stated they are the same.
