    What Japan is doing now is to ensure that the final question you asked need never be answered.

    This is non sense, Japan has the second most sophisticated and powerful navy on Earth. Japan didn't wait for the change of the Constitution to build a persuasive force that would guaranty its security. That is, Japan doesn't need to change the constitution to protect itself, it can already by a large mean.

    The TV companies actually follow guidelines from the World Health Organization

    I had a good laugh thanks....

    What else, TV companies can't report about earthquakes because people has scared of them? So maybe not reporting about earthquakes will prevent hem to occur again? What do you think?

    Poor part time beats fully unemployed, anyway.

    Yes sure, that's wonderful. Let's just all of us work for 40 hours a week in order to just earn peanuts.

    Let's go, this is beautiful...

    ther official data showed Japan’s jobless rate edged down to 3.5% in May

    Well here is a quote from a recent article from japanTimes on part time workers:

    There are 1.1 million fewer full-timers today than when the prime minister took over in December 2012, according to Japan’s official statistics bureau. Temps and part-timers — who often work 40 hours a week — account for all the job growth in the past five years. Sixty percent of employment offers in March were for temporary positions

    The rise of these jobs — to a record 38.2 percent of workers in February — is why Japan is the only developed country where average pay has consistently fallen, dropping 15 percent since 1997.

    The prime minister cited above is Abe by the way. Given those numbers, how can anybody claim that Abe has doing any good to Japanese people? The 3.5% jobless rate is total smoke, they are employing a larger and larger number of poor part time workers and the government is making them even poorer by creating a forced inflation on people with low wage.

    The news above is total propaganda, the inflation is not driven by increased demand. It's all forced by the government: sales tax increase and yen manipulation that has greatly increased the cost of energy. And I found it surprising that the article is not making any reference to the part of the energy cost in the inflation increase because this is what has mainly driven the "inflation" since the government started to manipulate the yen.

    How could it possibly be that the government is expecting a rebound of the economy while forcing an inflation with low fixed wages (besides the announced increase by some companies that were just ridiculous in terms of the value of the increase) which again have been dropping 15 percent since 1997? This is not rocket science. If people have more money, they can purchase more and price can increase with the demand. This is economy driven inflation. What we have now in Japan is all but that.

    @gaijingaijin

    I am interested to hear from you experience because I am also working in an university (researcher, not teaching). The amount of income that you indicated is quite low for a teaching staff, what is exactly your academic position? Public university? Why did you have a decrease of salary even after reaching a higher position?

    This is of course a matter of personal judgement. My point is that it can't be worse than what Japan has now or had for the last 50 years. And frankly she's got some real charisma, she is smart and modern, she has real ideas from what I could see.

    She is still a novice sure, but I don't think we can really blame her for expressing some emotion while being insulted in public. And actually she could make it well until the end of her speech.

    Now anyway, her or Renho Murata, fine. I guess we agree that a chance should be given to women in Japan, a lot of them deserve it.

    Yoshihara said that only Suzuki had admitted to making the remarks and that he had offered to resign his post.

    We don't want you to resign, we want you to be fired and banned access to any political responsibility for ever. We wan you to be politically dead, Japan is going nowhere with monkeys like you.

    Just admit that you and the others LDP old boys are totally stupid and that you are not up to the job, call your friend Abe and say to put the country in the hands of Ayaka Shiomura. She seems totally capable and reasonable, Japan may have a better chance with her.

    But are those words considered sexual harassment? Why I get the feeling than anything nowadays can be judged as sex-hara. Just like anything can be considered as bullying. Where are we going...

    Yeah well, they weren't a bunch of drunk dudes making some sexist jokes in a pub, were they? They are politicians (you know the representative of the citizens) in a working place and moreover during a debate in the Tokyo metropolitan assembly? How can they possibly behave like this without being offensive, disrespectful, dirty and plain stupid.

    In fact why a hell would someone shout in public to a women making a talk that she should hurry up and get married and try to humiliate her by saying that she hasn't got children? I can't see any other reason than sexual harassment.

    Better said, try to make a simple mental experience. Imagine that the speaker would have been Abe, the prime minister. Imagine for the sake of the exercise that he would have made the exact same speech with the same societal issues that Mrs Shiomura brought up to debate. Imagine for the sake of the exercise that Abe would be a single man without any child. Do you believe a second that one of those monkeys would have said the same thing to him in public like this?

    I f... don't think so.

    I saw several times during the days preceding the match in NHK that they were displaying the average size of the team players between Cote D'Ivoire and Japan, several times mentioning the size as a winning factor against Japan.

    The plain old Japanese excuse. I am with you smithinjapan, Japan lost because they were relatively bad, with poor technical skills. The players of Cote D'Ivoir were technically superior, more offensive, more inspired. Although they lack precision in many opportunities to make a goal before they did make it, they deserve their victory.

    The Cote D'Ivoire team was playing soccer while the Japanese team was playing ball. A difference that Japanese media didn't want to face with their BS samourai thing.

    My Japanese friends were saying he doesn't speak English, which I found surprising for a World Cup ref.

    As I indicated in a different but similar news, from JapanTimes:

    "I never saw in my life that a referee don’t speak English,” said defender Vedran Corluka, though it is required of World Cup referees. “He was speaking something in Japanese but no one could understand him."

    Yes it's quite incredible that a referee who can't properly speak english ended up in the opening game of the world cup. I guess he was saying them "wakarimasen, wakarimasen, wakarimasen... ".

    Abe is working to end the unpaid overtime scam by removing the requirement for companies to pay overtime.

    Really? I didn't know that. I guess the country is on a steeper path to toilet that I thought....

    Meanwhile, consumer inflation rose 3.2% year-on-year in April.

    Wait! This number does include rise in energy cost right? The last months, every time the government reported an increase in inflation, it was because of the energy cost.

    Removing this part showed that inflation was in fact flat. I believe that this is also the case here and that the 3.2% are mainly driven by forced inflation produced by the government manipulation of the yen.

    In other words, the government is saying non sense. It's making people struggling with increased energy cost by lowering the yen and it calls that then inflation.

    @Ramzel

    Very true, I totally agree.

    I think this is just a manipulation in order to use clueless people and to have them vote in the direction that the government wants in revising the constitution.

    From what I saw in the draft made public by the government, Japan is not going in the pretty way with the draft:

    • rejecting the universality of human rights,

    • elevating maintenance of "public order" over all individual rights, eliminating free speech protection for activities "with the purpose of damaging the public interest or public order, or associating with others for such purposes",

    • deleting the comprehensive guarantee of all constitutional rights,

    • adding new duties for the people ("The national flag is the rising sun flag (nishoki) and the national anthem is kimigayo", "The people must respect the national flag and national anthem."),

    • lowering the bar for constitutional amendments.

    Etc....

    Why this country has such tendency to segment people?

    They want to ask a 18 years old young Japanese to express a voting view to a referendum, which means expressing a view on an important subject that needs a minimum of interest to what is happening around him or her?

    Yes true, the number of women being employed in science in Japan is abysmally low. Totally shameful that this country discriminates women like that.

    But the issue is here goes maybe beyond that, because being man or woman doesn't really matter when it comes to behave with ethic in science. If she did falsified those images, she is in deep sh....

    There is no chance this woman was solely responsible for fraud in a major academic journal.

    But she is the first author of this paper and will be liable for any fraud that was committed. I mean she wrote the paper, she put it together, so if she falsified the two sets of images (falsification is unfortunately quite common in Japan), she did it by herself, probably without the knowledge of the co-authors. The co-authors and the reviewers of the paper are of course also responsible for not having noticed that. The other question is how in a hell this paper could be accepted with apparently obvious falsifications of the images?

    @rickyvee

    It doesn't really matter if she fabricated the results. The point is that she tried to make them look better. Which means that they are probably not as appealing as the paper tried to make it appear in the first place.

    Falsifications or manipulations like this one means that her career in science is not looking good at all at this point. And as cracaphat said, she should better come up to light and explain herself with solid arguments instead of hiding behind useless statement to the press. She was more than happy to put herself in those ridiculous TV shows and media channels when the news came out about her "research". Why isn't she more willing now when facing serious problems?

    Most of Europe has a 17-20% tax rate.

    Be specific which country? Because this is more complicated than that. Some counties in Europe have a gradual taxing system. In France 5% for fresh food and essential items, 7% for cultural items (books, music, cinema, etc), 10% at restaurants and ~20% if you buy a TV or whatever. I think there are also other subgroups.

    Make more sense that this stupid Japanese decision to increase sales tax in everything. Fresh food in Japan is already awfully expensive, we really don't need a higher sales tax on it.

    They could have had just the beginning of intelligence to tax more cigarettes and alcohol and not touch essential fresh food items. But I guess in a country with a lot of conflicts of interest and corruption that brings a government to hold shares in a big tobacco company, we can't expect them to be intelligent.

    This is a matter of opinion, but you said it by yourself, this is your first complete winter in Hokkaido, right? Is that long enough to judge the whole thing? Not sure, I guess.

    I have been living here for 12 years, yes 12 full winters in Hokkaido. If you like skying maybe you can have some fun here, but you will be put very quickly to the reality: dangerous roads in winter, car getting damaged, increased time to commute by car, shoveling a ton of snow for 4.5-5 months, heavy snow almost every day, blizzards, and not to forget an endless winter. Then follows usually poor springs (last year spring was a mess) and often short summers (with a lot of rain).

    Spending 4.5-5 months of harsh winter conditions every year for a whole life, hummmm, doesn't sound exiting, does it?

    Now if you say that you like to shovel snow three times a day, good for you. I feel more that I should do better and more interesting things in my life. Coming back from work and having to remove this snow almost every day during some weeks is painful, just painful. Anyone living here hates it. And no, you don't get sun everyday in Hokkaido, you get an illusion of a sunny day on morning quickly followed by a snow storm. Winters are usually dark here anyway.

    Yes the air is fresh but that depends on where you live, the temperatures within reason, again depends on where you live. Go have a look far East, they get easily -20 to -30 degrees C in winter.

    Sorry I stand to it, it sucks.
