    Semantics. Baskets are points too. Calling them "runs" would be stupid. Run>point, not point>run.

    Semantics? You are the one that made, excuse me TRIED to make the point that (get it?) that runs and points were the same thing. Your logic is flawed and wrong.

    Geez lets take your flawed logic and argument that points and runs are the same thing one step further and apply it to your hockey scenario............RUN scored! Your argument not mine. You were wrong, plain and simple.

    I've never been in a Japanese school, not do I ever want to.

    Then stop making judgments and comments about things you know nothing about. You make across the board claims that are blatantly false, learn to live with being corrected, you MIGHT actually learn something.

    You should try hockey, it's more interesting.

    Your opinion, not a fact.

    Anyway, they should have made both teams the winner after it was still 0-0 afier 25 innings or something.

    Again using your logic, if this was to happen, for the sake of discussion here, how would the two teams play the next game, which was the championship game of the tournament. What you suggest here is impossible.

    Be like the semi-finals of the Frozen Four being the FINAL match because neither team could end up scoring. Never happen. (See I know the difference between a run, a point, and a goal, and quite a few others too, if you are interested in educating yourself let us know I am sure there are plenty that would help to train you!)

    I wonder why Okinawa was excluded from this exercise. We had nothing going on here. Maybe we do ours separately?

    You evidently were not in the right place at the right time to know about it. Watch the local news tonight, this will be on the news, and odds are it will be the top story as well.

    The evacuation drill practice takes place in conjunction with the prefecture and typically focuses around the Naha and Naha Airport areas.

    That's the point. The Chinese crimes are also worthy of discussion but they don't get much discussion in China. You answered your own question.

    No you don't get it, what happened with Mao has nothing to do with the Chinese doing what they are here. And so what if the "other" subject doesnt get much discussion in China.

    Before folks in Japan complain about what the Chinese are doing they should get the forest out of their own eyes first.

    The article states that Chukyo is from Gifu prefecture. I believe that may be mistaken. I am ALMOST sure it is Aichi-ken !

    Chukyo University is in Aichi, and it has an attached High School as well, you are NOT mistaken. However the team that played in this marathon was from Gifu.

    But Beijing is far less willing to recognise the role of the ruling Communist Party in domestic disasters such as Mao Zedong’s Great Leap Forward and the ensuing famine that killed tens of millions of people.

    And what does this have to do with the Japanese? Both of these are totally different subjects each worthy of their own discussion. You defeat the point of the story by attempting to interlink them together.

    But then again it would be something the Japanese would do as well so I guess all is fair in war.

    Because the kids who run to the point of exhaustion etc doesn't have to do it every day for 4 days or whateve

    Just goes to show how much you are ignorant of how Japanese sports in school are run. Yes they do, btw, run to the point of exhaustion for at least 4 days, and many times as much as 7 days, before meets or contests. Which also leads to your next point:

    The pitchers probably won't have. Since they probably have messed-up shoulders from all that throwing. Try to understand the game you are talking about before making assumptions about their health. Sure they are probably tired and sore, BUT until you know the difference between nanshiki and koushiki baseballs your comments are off base here.

    Run/point = the same thing.

    Not even close, you score runs in baseball not points and that is universally known. Using your logic a basketball game score could be 115 runs to 110 runs....very much NOT the same thing. There is a reason for the terminology.

    That must be a baseball fan's perspective. Because scoreless baseball games are even more boring than regular baseball games, which are like sleeping pills to me ;)

    Then why pray tell are you commenting about a subject you are obviously ignorant about, like you know what you are talking about?

    Iwaki is changing - and not for the good,” said Inokoshi, 55, who echoes a sentiment widely heard in this town of almost 300,000 where the economic boom that followed the nuclear accident has brought its own disruption.

    If this is a "town" with a population of almost 300,000 people maybe they could invest some money into the infrastructure and make it a "city".

    This is just another example of one side of the hypocritical nature of many Japanese people. To the world they want to be seen as being hospitable and giving, only as long as it's in someone else's backyard!

    The world stands by, wrings it hands, sucks it's teeth, and does absolutely NOTHING to stop this......

    History is repeating itself in a manner of speaking and those who should be in the position to do something to stop it should be ashamed of their inaction.

    Must have been spread through the recent festivals at Yoyogi park, all these cultural festivals are a feast for these mosquitoes.

    And nothing to do with the fact that there are something like 13 million people living in Tokyo? And probably somewhere in the neighborhood of a gazillion or more mosquitoes?

    Japanese people are traditionally loath to spend money when the economy starts turning south and ONLY purchase large ticket items out of necessity rather than luxury.

    Abe-nutics was doomed to failure the minute it was announced, only problem is that Abe is the last one it seems to know it.

    I wonder just where she traveled to in Japan to catch the bug. Typically speaking it is carried by mosquitoes in tropical or semi-tropical climates, in Japan maybe from Kyushu south down to Okinawa.

    Dengue has been spreading in recent years, with 50 million to 100 million dengue infections a year

    According to Wiki (taking that for what is worth) "50 and 528 million people infected yearly"

    Among the nearly one-in-nine 14 and 15-year-olds who use their handheld device for at least four hours daily, grade scores suffer an average 14 percentage points across all subjects.

    And could you please tell us just how tax yen was wasted on pointing out the obvious?

    4 freaking hours a day? At least?

    70 years old? A politician? Apparantly not a high ranking political figure to be given diplomatic immunity? Not that I'd expect China to actually respect that any way.

    Did you read the article?

    —a war that it could not win.

    Be happy that Japan was greedy and pushed beyond it's limits, which in effect became it's down fall. If Japan would have stopped advancing and been satisfied to keep what it had the world could have very well looked very different after WWII.

    I'm talking about the teachers who refuse to sing the national anthem. They are communists

    And just what is wrong with a communist? Think about that before you answer the question. Ever hear of freedom?

    Even on Saturday, my son does not come home until five. No please right wingers, tell me that really a union has no place in this situation OR is this what you people call the new normal.

    To answer this comment would take pages, simply put unions in Japan are sleeping in bed with their employers and are ineffective beyond belief. It's nothing new either.

    He killed Rory Lark, age 15, unarmed and slight, at 115 pounds.

    Using this to compare what happened in St Louis is like comparing a golf ball to a bowling ball.

    That's intimidation. That's not a dialogue. Why didn't he get arrested?

    If you have to ask the question you obviously don't understand the politics here. The guy who makes the decisions doesn't get arrested, he gets promoted.

    They can hire part-time teachers for saturdays or any other days.

    No they can't, if you know the system, you'll know why.

    Teachers USED to have to work 1/2 days on every Saturday, then it was cut to having off on the 2nd and 4th Sat, now it's weekly. Results have dropped, school hours have increased, and the quality of teachers has dropped so the BOE in their own ignorant manner decided to increase classroom hours in the belief that quantity over quality wins!
