    Was MItsu Dan one of the candidates?

    Sexy definitely is in the eye of the beholder if slutty is considered sexy now-a-days.

    While the government has cut subsidies to folks who put panels on their roof and the electric utility down here in Okinawa is no longer purchasing excess electricity from anyone who had panels placed on their house after August 8th of this year.

    It cost me over 2.5 million yen to have solar panels installed on our house earlier this year, we got a 60,000 yen subsidy from the government, when it was as high as 600,000 until late last year. Without having the utility purchase the excess electricity we are producing there would have been no real merit to installing the panels.

    Plus there are people who have had panels installed on their open property, a friend of mine had 200 panels installed at a cost of over 10 million yen, with the expectation that he would be able to pay the loan back through produced energy and the panels are sitting there unused because the local utility will not pay for the produced electricity.

    There has been a dramatic increase of private users, like us, who installed solar after Fukushima and the government is cutting subsidies all over the board. Articles/information like this just proves once and again the government is not interested in renewable energy, only energy that can be produced by a business for profit.

    Also this just puts money into the pockets of a major corporation using taxpayers money for funding.

    Japan doesnt want solar, this is lip service, the current administration just wants the nukes back online!

    Considering that even in this govt housing I'm living, most apts housing gaijins have varying satellite discs.

    How ironic a gaijin living in Japanese government housing refusing to pay for a Japanese government funded service.

    Oh and BTW a lot of those apts that have satellite dishes on them are paying for BS broadcasting which is also NHK as well and roughly 2,000 per month MORE than those who do not have the BS service.

    I use my TV only for the PlayStation and that I didn't even have the cable that connected the RF signal to my TV.

    Sounds like you have an analog TV. If that's the case you are going to need more than just a cable, you'll need a converter box to receive the digital signal.

    Nonsense...if they want more money just say so and increase the taxes. Why STEAL from us with this silly caveats !

    By the way increasing the taxes would be stealing too! Be thankful this isnt the BBC.

    80,000 to 120,000 living political prisoners vs. 10-20 potentially dead kidnapped victims. They really need to get their priorities straight.

    I hope that you are not the parent of one of the kidnapped victims.

    Provided a legal system through which Nakamura received maybe the biggest bonus any salaryman has ever received?

    Bonus? It's called a judgement by the court. If the company had it their way he would have gotten nothing more than he got in the first place. He was generous to let them off as lightly as he did.

    He let 1.2 BILLION yen go by, that is probably a million times more than he was EVER paid. They got off EASY.

    If he had remained as a Japanese, PM Abe could have given him a very important role to change Japan. That would have been a very rewarding job for him too if he could revolutionize Japan. Japan needed him more than USA.

    By the way he is still Japanese, just not a citizen of Japan anymore. And there is NO job that Abe could have given him that would have been rewarding enough either.

    Evidently he took the lens off the camera prior to stealing the body of the camera, which tells me he was out to steal something that he thought he could easily hide.

    Thanks for the spoiled JT. Some of us don't rent these and use Japanese cable do I'm in season two, not three. I thought this was you g to be about season three being shown on cable here. So Brody is dead?! Great. No point in season three now it seems...

    Funny with a headline like this "Homeland' set to return, with even more adrenalin" one would think that it's obvious that there is going to be information about the upcoming program and a review.

    No need to read it if you are following it.

    You have to remember that it's a Rocketnews article.

    And obviously not written by rocket scientists.

    AHH THE 1940'S conventions left by the US, made so that if the imperial family has only female children it will die out. like the constitution i believe it needs a rethink this brainchild of MacArthur;s

    Actually this is incorrect as well, the section regarding male only succession was instituted at the time of the Meiji Restoration. The law was written in 1889

    It's true there are currently no eligible male members of the imperial family for the female members to marry, so by default the currently single females will lose their status if they marry, but that is by happenstance.

    It's not by tradition btw it's by law.

    Under the terms of the 1947 Imperial Household Law, naishinnō (imperial princesses) and Joō (princesses) lose their titles and membership in the imperial family upon marriage, unless they marry the Emperor or another member of the imperial family.

    Japan has a serious lack of mental health workers that can address these individuals before they can act out.

    This is not actually true. Plus how do you expect to actually do anything for anyone if they are not identified as being a risk to give the proper authorities the chance to assist them prior to their actions?
