    Seatbelts. Not worn and certainly not enough for 8 passengers in that vehicle. WHY is there a lack of seatbelt culture in Japan? WHY? I often see toddles in the front footwell, standing, peering out of the window... children roaming, even romping, round the inside of vehicles on the move. I just don't get it. Seatbelts SAVE lives. QED.

    @Inshikoku: It is a bit scarier than a nuclear power station... It is the Rokkasho Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing Facility and 'others'.

    If any one does need to answer questions that MUST be asked, it's Abe.

    The overall rating of the catastrophes is still --that is STILL-- rated at Level 7 (major release of radioactive material with widespread health and environmental effects r­equiring implementation of planned and extended countermeasures). QED. Nothing in its actual and potential consequences has changed, it has worsened, the spreading of radioactive dust during the removal of debris for one being an example. The mass storage of radioactive water in basle built storage tanks another. Have a look at how high they've 'rebuilt' the sea wall... Seriously. They are about as effective as a chocolate fireguard.

    ALL they have been doing SINCE March 11th 2011 is dumping and leaking radiation into the ocean! What's with this 'sudden' realisation that this is what they are going to have to do??!!

    All the fan boys are getting their tissues in I bet. Apple? Poor customer service, same ethos as any other multi-national and no different than that: The dollar is the bottom line. Can't even replace a battery! LOL. Rubbish.

    Good. More time for renewables to creep in and get footholds in the energy sector and undermine the most dangerous enterprise man has ever fooled himself into believing is beneficial and safe. When the consequences are so catastrophic when it goes wrong, which it does and will again, nuclear energy fuelled by uranium HAS to be stopped. NOW. It's the STUPIDEST way to boil water.

    As The West sleeps, distracted elsewhere, the structures it established are being threatened by the ones it destroyed and left in tatters. Oh very dear. The very opposite of what the West intended: to secure energy, be on Iran's doorstep, pacify with 'democracy', through invading Iraq is looming. Is here. JFC, what a joke. An absolute tragedy on an unprecedented scale. Saudi Arabia, with a hardly happy populace is 90% Sunni. Well done George, Rumi, Dick, Blair and others. Who'd have thought it, a Caliphate in the 21st Century!

    Sure they are staying within a low ceiling though, surely.

    The Chinese war games, not the civil aviation flights.

    @JT, it's Alderaan, pardon my pedant. Yes, well, please, please, no mishaps. I have both family and friends flying both today and tomorrow. Great. Sure they are staying within a low ceiling though, surely.

    @Nigel, every govt fiddles its unemployment rate to fit its forever being revised 'definition' of unemployment / employment. You don't need arithmetic, just common sense to know that and to not be naive about it.

    You get what you pay for, mostly --except the cheap food at very expensive prices scandal at hotels and restaurants this year-- how can you honestly expect anything but the lowest of motivation by workers who I dare not even think how much money they are on an hour. You get what you pay for. In Europe, the cheapest burgers found to made from horse meat, rotting horse meat, it happens everywhere money is being made on the cheapest of 'food'.

    Oh Japan, what are you doing, where are you going? As Japanese consumer prices rose 3.4% in May (and I do wish people would stop calling this inflation, it is not and never will be), consumer spending was down -8.9% (!). That is from a year earlier, so it has nothing to do with the April 1 tax hike! It’s an insane number when you think about it, and it’s the direct result of Abenomics tightening the thumb screws. With the population having seen their savings collapse, their wages move way down, and now rising prices for food and other basics. While the government and central bank are spending with unparalleled abandon, and pension funds are moving into riskier assets, away from government bonds, which have that same central bank as their only buyer left. Is it also going to purchase all the bonds the pensions funds will bring into the market? Frankly, how can it not?

    A 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and even above year old near a vehicle that is going to start moving needs to be held, either by the hand or picked up. Such a preventable accident. Extremely sad. Also, needs to be asked, when was the driver's vision, peripheral vision, hearing and reaction times tested.
