    In Africa, Japan should compete with China in fields such as geothermal power generation technology, in which Japan is a world leader, the official said.

    Japan would have an easier time sell the technology if they used it themselves (as they should, instead of nuclear energy). Roughly 0.1% of energy produced here in Japan comes from geothermal production.

    Who names these Typhoons? lol.

    There is a list that gives the names of the typhoons, the countries in the region take turns.

    This one was named by North Korea. Who approves these names is beyond me!

    You need to check again, like Joe wrote, this one is from Hong Kong NOT NK.

    I'd like to see it demonstrated that Japan is any more “culturally conservative” than most countries and anyone who reads the news carefully will know that in fact large-scale immigration is being considered within the Abe government.

    Large scale? What is "large scale" to you? Abe only wants "professionals" to come and work here, but he fails to realize that those same professionals have little to gain by living and working here.

    Not to mention the discrimination and racism that foreigners face here on a daily basis.

    An "increase" is sadly going to happen, when it becomes economically necessary for BOTH parents to work, and with an increase in single parents.

    Sadly there have always been and will be accidental deaths, in all age groups, it's just that with children it's so much harder to take. Used to be a time when grandma and grandpa watched the kids while mom and dad worked, not so much now a days, hence articles like this. BUT even when grandma and grandpa were watching them, things like this happened too.

    China urges Japan to be 'constructive' at G20 summit

    Looks like China is taking a page from Abe's book. Everyone knows what happens when Abe's gets an "urge", so I wonder what'll happen when China does the same?

    Most kids in Japan are inoculated using the MMR vaccine. If this 19-year-old's parents didn't have the sense to teach him not to go in large crowds when you have a fever and a rash, maybe they didn't have the sense to get him his MMR.

    Actually Japan stopped using the MMR vaccination, as I stated previously and the Japanese government continues to give the vaccinations separately and not as a single vaccination.

    The more important question to ask is if you had to choose between attending a Justin Bieber concert vs. contracting measles as an adult....

    Some here will argue that he is still a child (rolling eyes sarcasm) as he is "only" 19 years old. But since the author chooses to refer to him as a "man", I would venture to say that he is only a man in age only, he sure the hell aint mature that's for sure.

    Rather surprised they didnt refer to him as a boy, as they are often do with females, calling them "girls" at the same age.

    If he wasn't playing the game when he hit her, it wasn't due to him playing Pokemon Go. It was because he was recharging his smartphone.

    I was thinking the same thing, and I am quite confident that this has happened plenty of times before as well, it's just more convenient to blame Pokemon-Go and get more press this way.

    Considering his age odds are he did not get the measles shot, Japan previously had stopped giving the MMR vaccination due to a huge number of allergic reactions.

    Either way, a Bieber concert is more important to a GUY than being that sick? If anyone else catches it I hope they sue the hell out of him!

    admitted to involvement, while a 15-year-old boy from Higashimatsuyama denied it, saying he was “just at the site” of the incident, according to the police. The names of the boys are being withheld because they are minors.

    You are just as guilty, it's called being an accessory. No excuse!

    If a minor is going to be charged as an adult then treat them as an adult and publish their names too!

    I can imagine the criminal might be a school teacher or other type of respected figure in society who is viewed as a ‘serious’ person, and who sees such acts as a way to satisfy his urges without damaging his public image,” Higano said.

    Or how about a cop or politician? "Typically both are respected and are also seen as "serious" too. While it's probably a guy, why make the assumption, what about a female who may have issues as well?

    But nabbing the bizarre “butt-ripper,” as some perverse cynics have nicknamed him, might not be so easy

    Like some Japanese person is going to make this comment? Doubtful, probably the author trying to come up with some catchy phrase for this perp.

    Strange to foreigners but in Japan you have to take responsibility if you are connected. A parent is always responsible for their child and a company or boss is always responsible for their employees here.

    But politicians in power can pass off their gaffs and mistakes to underlings.

    It is not rocket science but some things are really hard to understand for a westerner pretending to look out Okinawan. Do not destroy that coral reef and you need not transplant coral 'elsewhere'. Simple as that.

    People's lives are more important than the coral, simple as that.

    I do, in fact, live in Japan. You know, the country where most cases are prosecuted based on confessions procured by the police? Confessions being evidence?

    If that's the case where do you come off thinking this....

    We live in a country where a person is supposedly innocent until proven guilty, right?

    It's not what you think here, and I hope you never have to find out. In Japan, you are pretty much guilty until proven innocent.

    all the numbers in this article and in the comments below are just obscene. defies belief that acting/singing/whatever in entertainment earns these folks so much.

    Obscene.....but I'd bet you'd change places in a heartbeat if you knew you were going to get paid that much coin.

    To transplant corals?! What a stupidity ! Perhaps, they are about to 'tranplant' locals to elsewhere?!

    Evidently you have no idea what is being talked about here. Coral gets transplanted all the time, and there are quite a few people involved in transplanting coral in Okinawa. Coral is a living organism and like many flowers and other plants they are able to be transplanted to different locations or to another reef.

    It's not rocket science, but it takes time and patience, as many species of coral are very delicate and need calm environments to regrow.

    Before you call stupidity, I suggest you look in to a mirror.

    The training will begin this month for Self-Defense Force units due to be deployed as peacekeepers in South Sudan in November, Defense Minister Tomomi Inada said.

    Ok so they are going to be deployed.......

    Any decision to order Japanese troops on rescue missions would be left to the cabinet.

    And while they are in Sudan they are going to need cabinet approval for any rescue missions?

    I feel so sorry for the boots on the ground that have to deal with this chain of command. I can not image the potential headaches this is going to cause some commander in the field.

    I hope that they are never put into a situation where someone's life is on the line while they wait for an answer from the "cabinet"
