    Are you going to answer the question or not?

    You did not ask a question. You made an incorrect guess about what you assumed I meant and then just went with it. You often do that, with similar incorrect results. Please do not blame your hastiness on me.

    You should be aware that even in western countries such as the US, medical professionals have indeed been responsible for the spread of diseases through needle sharing. These professionals supposedly had the training and knowledge to know better, but did it anyway resulting in people being infected. You are incorrectly suggesting knowledge of disinfectant protocols would have prevented these. The WHO is telling you you are wrong and I am telling you that I agree with them. These smart needles prevent these infection spreads from happening, not just throught needle sharing, but also through needle sticking as well, as I pointed out to you above. That is what this article is about and it is a good thing.

    Here's a hint, it doesn't mean what you think it does.

    What is clear is that your assumption about what I know or don't know is completely incorrect.

    The smart needles also have the advantage of preventing needle sticks in health professionals, thus preventing even more infections.

    So, perhaps you should investigate the story more carefully and stop rushing to judgement.

    This has nothing to do with drug addicts, as some previous posters (who clearly didn't read the article) think.

    It seems you have not read the comments as well as not have read the article originally. No one has talked about drug addicts, except you. Your idea of old glass and stainless steel syringes will not stop needle sharing and will not stop the spread of the diseases WHO is trying to stop with the new needles.

    I would save countless lives.

    You certainly have a high opinion of yourself.

    The problem is lack of proper disinfection protocols

    ? Did you even read the article? This is an article about needle sharing and how to prevent it. Do you think the people sharing the needles will sit and take a class in proper disinfection protocols?

    As I have written before, and will write again, the Kurds are a wonderful people who deserve their own recognized country. I hope the whole world backs them in their fight against the ISIS scum.

    The blame lies with these thugs, not his mother.

    I cannot say this more strongly. I agree 100%. What still concerns me is how no one around this boy managed to call the police when they saw him bruised. I don't understand how this could happen. I don't understand friends not telling anyone.

    The criminal thugs should be put away for a very, very long time. It is my hope that more people learn to search out help, not only for themselves, but for their friends when they are in obvious trouble.

    Crown Prince can influence people, but not the govt.

    If you are trying to say that the prince cannot legally force the government do anything, you are correct. However, he certainly can and I would guess did influence Abe and his cabinet's emotions and sense of survival. You see, the Crown Prince is way more loved and respected by most if not all Japanese than any politician could ever be. That has emotional clout if not actual legal clout. That is often more than enough.

    I think it is enough already with trying to reword statements. Apologize clearly, accept no back talk from the fringe and move on toward friendlier and more peaceful relations with our neighbors. That is the best course of action and it is my strong impression that the Crown Prince feels much like I do on the matter.

    You assume the message was sent on line

    How do you think they were sent, smoke signals?

    This is a really appalling case imo and from the limited information we have access to here on the electronic internet it seems very premeditated, very sadistic and very, very heinous.

    Absolutely. It is a horrible case from start to finish. The kid had bruises on his face in January. Why the heck didn't his teachers, his friends, his parents go straight to the police? How can anyone stand by and let something like that continue or, worse yet, escalate.

    It is unrelated, but when I was watching the report on TV talking about the bruises, I remember the high school kid from Osaka that was being beat on a regular basis, came home one night with bruises on his face and his lip cut and said to his mother, 'The teacher beat me good again today.' Did the mother call the police or even the school to complain? No. There were no complaints until the boy had killed himself very shortly after that.

    I just cannot feature it. What goes through people's minds that they can stand by and let someone suffer?

    As for these horrible criminals, the 18 year old's name has already been outed on youtube. He deserves to be known for the sadistic murderer that he is, as do the two others.

    I am glad these criminals were caught. They deserve to treated as adults for this crime, although we know this will not happen.

    SK leaps into the 1950s.

    Yes, kicking and screaming.

    It was the fifth time the apex court had considered the constitutional legality of the legislation which had made South Korea one of the few non-Muslim countries to regard marital infidelity as a criminal act.

    Hashimoto told Sakurai and his group to stop their hate speech against ethnic groups. “We don’t need racists like you here in Osaka,” Hashimoto said.

    Wow. I can't believe I will write this, but good for you, Hashimoto! Keep on this path, please.

    That certainly is a pretty specific decision.

    Montblanc should be ashamed of and disgusted with themselves. I hope not one person buys this pen and Montblanc are stuck with all of them.

    Over here, pharamacists are usually immigrated people. Nurses, and new kind of body x ray techbitians are Asian immigrants.

    Yes, and they take the same licensing tests in English that those originally in the US do. It is and should continue to be the same here in Japan, too.

    Japan is requiring licensing in the local language, which is the standard practice in countries all over the world.

    Lawyers for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect asked a judge Thursday to dismiss the indictment against their client or suspend his trial, saying there weren’t enough minorities and younger people in the jury pool.

    Kind of bigoted, not to mention incorrect, of the lawyers to assume that minorities and young people would sympathize with the accused just because they are minorities and young.

    China media mock Japan's luxury lavatories

    Look who's mocking. How about you consider more walls around the holes in the ground that you call your public toilets before mocking the wonderfulness that is the Japanese toilet?

    toshiko,

    I was half-joking, but what your daughter is doing is what an interpreter does. More importantly, it shows that you understand what many of us our saying. That is that, first and foremost, medicine is performed in the local language of the country.

    Frungy is completely incorrect here in suggesting that good, precise and clear communication is not important for nurses. In a country such as Japan, which has a rather large suicide rate and where the medical staff around them are the only source of communication for the elderly, that last thing...I repeat, the last thing we need is people around who cannot communicate professionally in the local language. It is a disaster waiting to happen.
