Japanese freedom of speech is a bit of a tenuous concept.
Posted in: Freedom of speech is the element of democracy that must be protected most. That's true no matter which party is in power. Crushing freedom of speech would plant the roots of a terrible evil in Japan's future.

75 year old dentist? Plus is this just a scare - can't they investigate whether patients who attended these clinics had the disease?

Bennifer my barse. Showbiz news loves this kind of "nickname" and also the prurient looking into these folks "relationships". I guess 10 years was pretty good for a known horndog like Affleck. Maybe he will step out with one of latest celebs in the spotlight..... I'm sitting on the edge of my seat.

I think her actions were suspicious and she broke the law. Nonetheless seems to me not such a big deal. Plenty of drugs you can get on prescription in Japan that you can't even take into other countries like the US (Rohypnol?/). so she will do her 21 days and then they will send her home. Shame for her as she could clearly have done well at toyotoa as their most senior gaijin female......

Like so many of these flogged to death series, the later ones actually ruin the enjoyment one remebers from the earlier ones. Maybe i was just younger and less cynical (like Arnie??)

Becasue that is the norm in Japan and will continue to be until it affects their occupancy. Plus they often throw in a (rubbish) breakfast and a (better) dinner.

I find all these reports or whatever on (insert bad thing here) that CAUSES (insert number here) deaths a year so tedious. We all die of something someday and many of these reports are contradicted by otgher reports that say that (insert something here) helps to maintain health. Chocolate and wine are two of the ones that are often the subject of confliciting research. and just gives all of the (insert soemething here) vigilantes cause to hound us with their do gooderiness. Smoking and obesity vigivlantes are the worst, but plenty of others too.......
soon everything will be banned except drugs and vegetables and water.

Austrity can work if you have your own currency. UK is a good example - not great but good. continued borrow and spend (wastefully) policies will end in tears.
