    Apple are currently shooting themselves in the foot. All these recent memory shortages, caused by heavy OS updates, coinciding with sales pitches on purchasing memory or upgrading your iphone. The vast majority of iphone customers preferred to shoot with their iphones. Thanks to Apple's new games people will look to invest in a camera instead.

    It was not directed at you AGYWE. Although the concentration seems to be on the amount of cash the girl had, rather than on the potential psycopath.

    Good to see the majority of comments here are about degrading the woman for being at a hotel on the first date and not for the guy for choking and robbing her.

    Exactly. The sexist female-phobic comments on here are pathetic. And even if she was a 'working girl' (its the oldest profession my friends), does that mean a potential strangler/ robber gets to roam free!

    Hold on a minute here.

    So what if a woman wants to have sex on a first date. So what if she met him on an internet dating site. She is an adult. This guy choked her and robbed her of Y200,000! That's attempted murder in many jurisdictions.

    I can't believe that the woman is being criticised here. For most of us guys getting sex on a first date and getting a date from an internet site gets credibility points.

    This is a non-Chinese story. The problem lies with Japanese bus drivers. But if Ginza is, obviously, receiving a retail boom from these tourists then why not just let the buses in?

    This article missed the most interesting part of the story. When the Liverpool fans walked out with 13 minutes remaining, Liverpool were winning 2-0. In the 13 minutes that 10,000 fans were missing from the stadium, Sunderland had pulled back to 2-2!

    MrBum, I agree with your point of view. Completely. But as soon as you start saying, ok Beyonce can be invited onto superbowl halftime and raise a panthers fist and display placards against police brutality, then in a democratic society you would have to allow anyone with an NRA/ Donald Trump/ police state opinion the right to do the same. And as I have the same political point of view as you, that is the last thing we need at a sporting event. The Taylor Swift comments are a hypothetical scenario, and one where she would be castigated for ding something similar to Beyonce's act.

    sfjp, good point. Although Beyonce is probably at the level where they dare not ask her to sign such clauses, and as you say, her actions would have benefitted the TV company and the record label. The problem now is where does it end? Any artist wanting to promote say, the LAPD, or Donald Trump for president at Superbowl halftime, would have to be given permission otherwise it would be bias.

    It was supposed to be a sporting stage. With her and her husbands money it is easy to step onto the political, TV, and media platforms. She was invited to one of the biggest sporting audiences in the world and hijacked it with politics, even if I agree with the message. All of those black NFL players are millionaires and can also get involved in that message on the correct political platform.

    There is supposed to be that cardinal rule that sport and politics should not mix. It wasnt a good stage to bring the message, even if there are positives about the message. I also have to admit that if Taylor Swift came on singing country and holding an NRA placard, she would have been labelled as some kind of member of the klan. But it would have been no different to Beyonces message. Which brings us back to Charlotte Ramplings point that it feels racist to her to criticise representation of the white acting community.

    Oil prices have been dropping for the past few months, so why aren’t fuel surcharges on airfares coming down?

    Why are you asking those not in power? A large majority here who cannot vote in Japan. Why isnt this question put to government?

    Europe helped to cause this mess so it should help "these people". By the way "these people" means innocent children and their parents and grandparents fleeing their own country and homes because of civil war.

    I distinctly quoted only the recent operations against Assad, Gaddafi, Hussein, and the Taleban in respect of this crisis. I made no other mention of non-western conflicts such as Iran-Iraq which has no connection with the current refugee crisis (and this JT article). The Kuwait oil war was correct but Bush snr did not remove Hussein when he had the chance. His son created the current mess in no connection to the Kuwait war.

    The UK and the US are the worst culprits. They meddle in middle east politics and leadership, create civil war, and one refuses to accept the ensuing refugees whilst the other avoids them geographically.

    A good article.

    In response to the "what are the muslim nations doing?" comments, let us remember one very important thing. If it weren't for the Americans, British, French, Russians etc wanting to remove Assad in Syria, Gaddafi in Libya, Hussein in Iraq, and the Taleban in Afghanistan then we wouldn't have had this vast human tragedy in the first place. Just look at the huge mess in Syria, Libya, Iraq, and Afghanistan today. Unresolved and civil war. The very reason why these muslim nations won't help out is because they have seen who caused this in the first place. And I'm British.

    I'm shocked that such a large amount of taxpayers money and media time has been wasted on busting someone for a tenth of a gram of a substance that they cannot even clarify yet. Another glamour bust for the cops to put on a show about what a great job they are doing. Arrest the dealers and forget the glamour bust.

    Maybe their lawyer can counter-sue JR Tokai for failing to protect children, those suffering from dementia and alzeimers, animals etc from their dangerous railway lines? The lawyer can argue that it is not the norm for a railway line to run through a neighborhood without any fencing protection. A neighborhood means that there are residences around. We cannot stop children above the age of 10 from being outside with their friends, so there is just as much chance that children can wander onto these unprotected tracks.

    This is just fear monger jog by Abe; he knows that North Korea poses no threat to Japan, and yet plays up their villainy to make himself look like a righteous defender of Japan.

    No disrespect or anything, but you must be the only person on this planet who believes that the lunatics in North Korea pose no threat.

    We already have this LAW in England. The mother can request and obtain a background check on a prospective partner...

    Thank you. A mature post. But there again I'm from England too and think along the same lines. The only issue at present is that this law is not compulsory and is up to the mother to instigate. Any mother who instigates that law is already too sensible to allow a thug like that into their home. And this Japanese mother would never have requested such a check.

    No.

    It happens far too often my friend. Its time for solutions. The majority of partners living with children that are not theirs are fine. But if you think about it from a social care perspective there is risk involved and no checks currently required for an adult with no family connection to start living in the same household as someone elses child. If the partner is serious and a mature, safe adult then what is the issue with them having to wait for a year before they can get the approval to live with children that are not their own?
