    Yes, the 4am sunrise in Summer is absurd

    Sunrise in Tokyo on summer solstice: 4:25 am

    Sunrise in London on summer solstice: 4:43 am (after DST)

    https://www.timeanddate.com/sun/uk/london?month=6&year=2016

    Not much difference. Shifting 1 hour to make it 5:25 am in Tokyo is overkill.

    In Japan, if you can show the suicide is due to financial hardship the company must pay full coverage, as if you were killed in a car crash.

    You are wrong. All one has to show is that the insured is dead. The insurer has to pay, unless the insurer proves that the insured is killed by the beneficiary.

    This may be so. However, life insurance companies still pay out if the suicide is deemed to be from financial stress. I wonder how much further this number would drop if the life insurance companies stopped paying out for finance related suicide.

    Are you suggesting that insurers should not pay only if the suicide is from financial stress, and should pay if it is from other reasons? Or, are you suggesting that they should not pay for any suicide?

    The heirs do not need to assume liabilities if the net worth of the deceased is negative. So, insurance does not generally save heirs. It saves lenders for the lenders collect the insurance payment. Do you think borrowers would commit suicides for the love of lenders? The only exception would be the home loans. If the heirs refuse to assume the loan, they also lose the title of the house. Insurance saves the house for the heirs. But I am not sure prohibiting insurance payment for the home loan borrowers would make the world any better.

    @CH3CHO - Kagoike has presented the press the deposit account receipt of 1,000,000 yen, dated September 7, 2015 which is the following Monday of September 5 when the donation was supposed to be given.

    Yeah, so what! That proves nothing!

    Remember what you have said.

    Furthermore, he probably used it to wine and dine himself at girly bars anyway.

    If he received the 1,000,000 yen from Akie, it was in the deposit account. He could not have "wined and dined himself" with the money.

    If he did not receive the 1,000,000 yen from Akie, he could not "wine and dine himself" with non-existent money.

    Kagoike cannot "wine and dine" with the money and save it, too. To answer your question, what it proves is that your reasoning is clearly wrong.

    Wonder if there is breakdown and analysis of how those 21,897

    Here is a link to the suicide statistics for 2015, released by National Police Agency of Japan.

    https://www.npa.go.jp/safetylife/seianki/jisatsu/H27/H27_jisatunojoukyou_01.pdf

    Table 4 on page 5 shows, "health problems" is the largest motive for suicide (50.5%), followed by "economic problems" (17.0%) and "family problems" (15.2%).

    Table 2-2 on page 16 shows "age group 50 to 59" has the highest suicide rate (25.6/100,000) followed by "age group 80 or older" (24.5/100,000). The age group with lowest suicide rate in the "age group 19 or younger" (2.5/100,000).

    If Akie gave him a paper bag of money under the table, there will be no record of it. Furthermore, he probably used it to wine and dine himself at girly bars anyway.

    You do not follow Japanese news, do you? Kagoike has presented the press the deposit account receipt of 1,000,000 yen, dated September 7, 2015 which is the following Monday of September 5 when the donation was supposed to be given. The new is all over Japan.

    What is the use of a "helicopter carrier"? Does anyone know?

    I cannot think of a good use of it except being a sitting target for Chinese missiles.

    Targeting civilians is a war crime. See Geneva Convention and the Hague Convention. It does not matter who started the war or who won the war.

    Which country during the period 1930-1945 killed more civilians, Japan or America? How many Chinese were killed? How many POW's tortured and killed?

    Two wrongs do not make one right.

    Targeting civilians is a war crime.

    The conspiring to commit a criminal act should be punishable. The problem only occurs where there are too broad or unjust "criminal" acts, If the law does not criminalise aspects of free speech then there can be no conspiracy. Most countries have a version, the US and UK are based on common law principles though the UK law was formalised and certain potential abuses removed by the Criminal Law act 1977.

    The UK and the US are the extreme ones. Countries in Continental Europe and countries with Roman law tradition do not punish conspiracy or punish conspiracy only in exceptional cases. http://scholarlycommons.law.northwestern.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=3892&context=jclc

    ITALIAN LAW (page 9)

    The Italian Penal Code of 1930^21 is perhaps the best reflection of the civil law approach to the problem of conspiracy. Art. 115 reads, in its first paragraph, as follows: "Except where the law provides otherwise, whenever two or more persons agree for the purpose of committing an offense, and it is not committed, none of them is punishable for the sole fact of making an agreement;" thus, it lays down the general principle that conspiracy is not punishable, but provides for exceptions to this rule.

    For those saying the Dolittle Raid was a war crime for killing innocent people.

    I guess the unprovoked & extremely cowardly attack on Pearl Harbor was just a miscommunication?

    Wow. show some respect and delete this article.

    It is interesting to see so many people here support censorship or self-censorship.

    it's fair to report that she is suffering from shingles but describing the location in this way displays a lack of good taste and poor judgement

    The borderline between good judgment and poor judgment is very much unclear in this case. How about the following? Is it a poor judgment?

    Donation by elected officials is prohibited by law, because it is same as buying votes. The prohibition is valid, even not during an election.

    when overtime work past 40 hours is ALREADY ILLEGAL??

    40 hours a week is the regular working hours.

    Any overtime work is illegal unless there is an agreement between the labor union and the company that allows overtime work.

    CH3CHO

    The current law states that working hours must not exceed 40 hours per week or eight hours a day, but workers can work longer if a labor-management agreement allows.

    A labor-management agreement means an agreement between the labor union and the company. If they do not want to work overtime or if they want an upper limit to the overtime, they should put the clause in the agreement.

    katsu78MAR. 14, 2017 - 07:34AM JST

    Frequent overtime represents a failure on the part of management to ensure employees have adequate resources and training to get the job done on time.

    By law, the company needs to pay 25% more hourly wages for any overtime work. If the overtime hours go beyond 60 hours in a month, the company needs to pay 50% more hourly wages for the overtime. Overtime is a management failure.

    The breed of dog is not important. Most dogs in Japan live their whole lives in apartments and only get walked for a poop.

    Funny. Nearly none of the apartment houses in Japan allow its residents to keep dogs as pets in it. Have you ever heard of an apartment house that allows dogs?

    the empty two-story building on Gong ping Road

    Gong Ping Road is in Hong Kou in Shanghai. Here is a link to a report by the Japanese Consulate General of so-called "Japanese Concession" of Hong Kou in Shanghai in 1938 on Page 421. http://www.awf.or.jp/pdf/0051_1.pdf

    It says that there were 11 brothels in Hong Kou of which 7 were for Japanese Navy, that there were 191 prostitutes, comprised of 171 ethnic Japanese and 20 ethnic Korean, in the brothels as of December 1938, increasing 73 from the previous year, and that in addition to them, there were 300 temporary prostitutes for the Japanese Army in the concession.

    It also says that in the concession, there were countless number of Chinese unlicensed prostitutes, more than 150 Russian unlicensed prostitutes who fled from the Russian revolution, and about 150 Japanese unlicensed prostitutes, of whom most were ethnic Koreans.

    CH3CHO... even if it starts out as consensual as soon as the woman says no, that's it. If the bloke keeps going then it';s no longer by consent.

    No, I am talking about a totally different situation.

    Even if both he and she agree it was consensual, the police can unilaterally raise a rape charge against them. This is what happens if the complaint by the victim becomes non-essential to establishing a case.

    and no longer requiring a victim’s complaint in prosecuting an assailant in a rape or sexual molestation case.

    This is HUGE and long, long, overdue.

    Even if she says it was consensual, the police can go ahead and arrest him. This is what happens if the law is changed.

    I guess the testimony of surviving victims will have to suffice.

    Apparently, you have never read any actual testimonies of Korean former ianfu. Those "testimonies" are the hotbed of all kinds of confusion.

    Read the testimonies of Korean former ianfu Yong Soo Lee and Koon Ja Kim. They each gave two testimonies at the US Congress. One testimony contradicts the other by the same witness. Oath may mean nothing to them.
