Another excellent game. The key to beating Joker is to make fewer unforced errors. Go Kei!

Japan is a haven for under-aged criminals and criminals in general. The police here are reactive / passive even as people become more brazen committing everyday infractions including running red-lights, driving through stop signs, parking in no-park zones, etc, etc. Law enforcement officials needs to change with the changes in society.

At this point, Nishikori chances of winning even a match are slim and none. His post US Open performance has been anything but top-10 material.

How about all the food companies, and all the hotels and restaurants from a few years ago. And it's not just Japan...it's happening everywhere in all industries.

Just go to any gov't institution--be it a shiyakusho, kuyakusho, national university, etc.--and you see loads of people doing busy work: preparing redundant documents after documents...so much waste still going on even as Japan sits with an ever increasing debt that is now roughly JPY10 Mill per citizen and approx. 200% of GDP.

A perfect example of the media fabricating controversy among 'supposed' rivals. The facts: Gatlin hasn't even come close to Bolt's numbers and it won't even be a contest. Give it a rest.

Not even Fukushima was enough. What will it take for Abe and his cabinet to learn?

It has been a relief to see Japan have a stable leader in Abe and IMO, he is doing a good job. However I disagree with his policies on three fronts:
The first pertains to this article of his support for expanding military role; the second is his support of the temporary workers bill, and the third is his support for nuclear energy.

CrazyJoe, ditto that. Recently, there was another case where a juvenile killed 3 people and his sentence was 4-8 years in prison. The consequences for juvenile here is too light to say the least.

First, congrats to USWNT for soundly beating Nadeshiko Japan. They were more prepared and aggressive from the get go. Nadeshiko looked very disorganized, their usually crisp passing and lock down defense went AWOL. Though Nadeshiko had a great World Cup overall and Manager Sasaki has done a great job overall, I would put Manager Sasaki as the one responsible for the poor showing of Nadeshiko in the finals. After beating England in the semis, the words that came out of Sasaki's mouth made it seem like it was all over as he kept repeatedly saying, now it is time for the women (players) to enjoy themselves. The head of the team should not be saying such things, much less in public, after all, how many opportunities does a team have to vie for the championship?

Nadeshiko Japan's dribbling technique, pin-point passing, team work, and discipline are truly world class. Their games have been a joy to watch. Would be great to see them play the US for all the marbles again. Go Nadeshiko!

Watched the game...Kei still has a long way to go before he can crack the top 3 consistently. But there are rays of hope!
