depends on how you categorize safe. If it includes petty theft, rape, cyber crime, bullying, harassment, child abuse, public transport accidents and going further into natural causes like earthquakes, floods and typhoons then I would have to say it is not any safer than 10 years ago. Additionally, more people means more problems, so China & India are not having a particularly good time.

I had a full 45 sec warning on my "The Last 10-Second" app. http://weathernews.jp/quake/html/urgentquake.html
If you add another app it will speak out the location, size, time to impact and if it is worthy of a tsunami warning.

pretty simple, if the automaker is the one selling the point of driverless and that it's safe then guess who would take the blame. Since the automakers would never say that in the small print for the next decade or so, it will mean a driver has to be in the seat at all times and paying attention to the road. That means nothing actually changes to the law today until it's the car (software) which overrides the driver and slams into another car. Now, will any of you trust your life to a car and feel comfortable enough to go to sleep?
Posted in: Some automakers are working with tech companies to develop driverless cars, but legal liability for accidents remains vague. In the event of an accident involving a driverless car, who do you think should be liable?

so, it you forked out 100,000yen for a ticket on Yahoo Auction or something I assume you only get back the face value of the ticket and can't hold onto the seat number for a future gig. That's got to suck if you happen to have a good seat.

Such a waste of resources to host one human being in one of the safest countries in the world. Lax security comes from Japan not being violent enough. A peice of paper with codes? In this day and age. No scrambled rotating codes? If communications are encrypted then actually their would be no need for analogue codes.

lying and making up stuff in this field would have been the worst possible way to come out with 'breakthrough' stem cell research. You just know labs across the world are going to want to replicate and verify the results, so I seriously doubt they're going to put their profession and credibility on the line for a few months of fame. Given time it will be proven that it can be done and just requires very specific circumstances.
My take is i don't care about how to make stem cells (I already have the best you can get - cord blood), I'm interested in how to use the stem cells to cure diseases & cancer, mend body parts, everything from alzheimer's to muscular dystrophy...

and what is 159 tons worth on the black market? I wonder if Japan asked China if they could look after it for a while what they would say. There are many ways to use plutonium as a weapon and for these quantities you don't require much of a launch system and more like an drone to sprinkle the crap from the atmosphere. My biggest fear is not Japan, but terrorists going after the stuff or some inside job to make some money or for religious reasons.
