    Hopefully, voter apathy can be stopped and Abe and his corporate cronies will be voted out of office.

    Sadly it seems there is no one who is willing to step up and tell the country the one thing they need to hear.

    Takagi expressed his frustration at a press conference afterward, saying, “I could not have foreseen that my design was not carried out the way I had planned it.”

    And where were you when the construction was being done? When my house was built the architect was at the construction scene daily to check on the work and talk with the workers.

    The Kobe city government inspected the hospital in June after a group of liver transplant surgeons across Japan concluded some of the deaths could have been avoided if medical staff had taken a different approach.

    Which is double speak for, "Ya'll screwed up big time" The director of this hospital should be investigated for crimminal negligence.

    Arrows? More like paper airplanes being tossed around in a typhoon and Abe thinking he's going to hit a bulls-eye.

    @chikv I'd give up on trying to persuade Yubaru if I were you, he's just never going to get it. Bold attempt though and some good info

    Good info? Like how they missed on the point that the japanese flu shot is not a preventative as they assume?

    Get your information straight, flu shots, unless they use a live virus, DO NOT prevent the onset of the symptoms of the flu. THAT is a fact.

    It lessens the symptoms and assists in a faster recovery.

    Masks do little to prevent the spread, contrary to public (here) belief.

    Folks are sucked into believing that masks help prevent the flu, and in a country where everyone seems to wear them, why pray tell is the virus so easily spread? Looks like SOMETHING isnt working, folks all over get the shots, folks all over wear masks, but still 1.7 MILLION people catch the flu......

    Something about the spread of information is off.....

    Zaitokukai are an ultra-nationalist, right-wing group that organizes protests and demonstrations across Japan, even in front of Korean elementary schools, yelling such slogans as “Go back to Korea,” “You’re the children of spies” and making numerous veiled and overt threats. The group asserts that all foreigners are criminals who should be chased out of Japan, especially the Koreans.

    Do you even know the definition of what a hate crime is? So you would do away with freedom of speech in the name of being PC.

    Dont like the rhetoric, fine, but those people protesting have rights too.

    I have often times wondered that if these people are truly pro-Pyongyang and are worried about the safety and welfare of their children, why don't they just move to their "workers" paradise?

    Denver's defense made Cam Newton and the Panther's look bad. Goes to show again that hype doesn't win football games.

    Kudos to the Bronco's and Peyton Manning, should be his last game as a pro, and nice to see him go out a champ.

    Its not a belief, that is the point, its an informed opinion based on data that can be tested and examined, Evidence.

    By cherry picking posts, and here is all I have to say in reply to everything you wrote and I'll use a quote from a rather wise person, "If you can't baffle 'em with your brilliance then blind them with your bull". And you certainly seem to fit the bill.

    This is just the start, when all the PPS come on line the consumer is going to have a ton of options in areas that have multiple providers.

    There will be a ton of optional plans as well, like a cell-phone/electric plan, propane gas/electric plan, and plans to fit the needs of the user. For example, a single person, living alone, might choose a plan that charges high rates during the day time, when overall usage is very high, but they are never home, hence their bill will be far cheaper than their current bill.

    My only question for Toshiba though is that as they are using solar, I wonder how they plan on keeping a stable power supply if their panels are not producing enough energy for their customers needs? Do they have a plan to back up their solar with traditional providers?

    to being known so the vaccine could very well be above the 90% preventive rate as has happened several times before

    Here in Japan the flu vaccine is not a preventative vaccination. The only preventative vaccination for the flu is to use an active flu virus, which is not used here.

    The vaccination used here is a "dead" virus, and while it does not prevent the flu, it helps the recipient in recovering faster and lessening the symptoms typically associated with the virus.

    Citations needed since your affirmation runs contrary to reported evidence, unless you want to affirm this solely on your own authority.

    Oh hell, look at the masks people use here, you know the one's from the 100 yen shop. Those have about as much of a chance of stopping the spread of the flu virus as me getting a sex change operation.

    Sure they will work if you use the anti-viral spray on them, or you could purchase the surgical masks, which cost a hell of a lot more. Masks are pretty much useless for stopping one from catching anything, but they are somewhat helpful for someone who already has an illness and it stops, to a degree, the germs from being spread by open sneezing and coughing that often accompanies an illness.

    Of course my comments are heresay, but take for what it's worth, I worked in a hospital group from nearly a decade and had a neurosurgeon tell me what I shared here. I'll take his word over your "reported evidence".

    More power to her! I hope that other young women and men of her age get involved and are inspired to take action like her. With the voting age dropping to 18 this year younger voters need to get involved and become an integral part of the process. I just hope that they can keep their heads out of their sma-phones long enough to listen to the message this teenager has for them!

    Funny thing is that I'll bet that just about everyone with a smart-phone or cell phone that has the emergency warning app set up knew about this at 9:35AM.

    I was waiting for a lecture to start at 9:45 AM in a room with about 120 people in it and at 9:35 or so it seemed like everyone's smart-phones and keitei's were chiming all at once, then again at around 9:40.

    Why was this extra special newspaper put out 6 hours late?

    It wasn't, the special editions were on the streets in about within a couple of hours. The picture was posted 6 hours later. (There corrected that for ya')

    How about EVERYBODY getting rid of nuclear arms - including the U.S.A!

    And just how do you propose this in a realistic way? You can wish and dream for Utopia but reality is this aint gonna happen.

    China seems to be unable to stop Kim and China is the last country that NK wants to piss-off.

    Without China's help NK would be worse off than it already is and if the NK regime becomes unstable all the refugees that will flee NK will end up in China's lap and that is something they do not want to deal with.

    Here is a prime opportunity for Abe to improve relations with China, consult with the Chinese on what sanctions or action to take as well work in conjunction with SK too. Between the three countries just maybe something constructive could occur.

    I hope Japan ignores this self-centered view.

    What makes this so untypically Japanese, in changing this symbol to appease those who are ignorant, is that typically they tell the "west" or anyone else complaining that it's Japanese culture, Japanese history, a part of the Japanese collective and they WILL NOT change, no matter how strong the pressure gets. Just ask the whales, dolphins, the women with father's to their children who are not the fathers, the children who cant get citizenship, the foreign men who cant see their kids, the refugees and the list goes on and on and on, oh and the whitewashing of "true" history.

    Japan typically tells the world to basically kiss their butts, And yet here they want to change something that IS historical and accurate.

    Now I am sucking my teeth, and rubbing my hands together, and looking to gather a group of oyaji's to discuss this issue.
