    One of the biggest problems I have when stopping at crosswalks while driving is that car(s) coming from the other direction or cars in the lane next to mine won't stop.

    The pedestrian trying to cross will start walking since I stopped but then almost get hit by those other cars that don't stop.

    Same when I'm the pedestrian. It's a dangerous situation.

    Good. Ease visa restrictions - and please ease the media and the people's attitude about the Chinese visitors.

    My main concern is whether it's really safe or not. Flying through a tube at 760 miles per hour (1220 km/hour) seems like it could be quite dangerous.

    What happens if, for whatever reason, the sides of the vehicle suddenly begin rubbing against the tube? Will the friction cause an explosive fire and/or desintegration.of the vehicle?

    How do people get out of the tube if there's ever an accident or a stoppage?

    It'll be a good partnership - China censoring anything depicting them in a bad light and Sony who self-censors themselves anyway.

    The three-CD boxed album, called “SMAP 25 YEARS,” will consist of around 50 songs chosen by fans through online voting...

    What if the fans only choose three or four songs and no other songs are chosen because they're all lame?

    I understand Apple is the main competitor but I sure would've liked to hear a bit more about this Google smartphone. Perhaps some guesses at some of the features and strong points that it might bring into the ring.

    More than half of this article was devoted to the iPhone. (Which we've already been reading about extensively in the last few weeks.)

    The silence has sparked debate about the need for change in a society where people with disabilities can still suffer stigma and shame.

    “It is true that some may not have wanted their children to be subjected to public scorn,” said Takashi Ono, stepfather of 43-year-old Kazuya, a long time resident of the Tsukui Yamauri-en facility who survived multiple stabbing wounds in the attack.

    Glad to see Mr. Ono speaking up about this situation while giving his and his son's real name.

    But how pathetic that people in society think this way. If I had a special needs family member, I'd in no way ever feel the need to "hide" him or her. Real family and love transcends this way of thinking.

    Having to put a disabled person in a home for needed help is fine if necessary or best. If the media wanted to report that a family member of mine was attacked, hurt, or killed there - fine. I see no need to hide it. He/She is just as much a victim as any other person.

    If my special needs child loved me, I'd love them back just the same, if not more.

    On Thursday, Shintaro Ishihara, who was governor of Tokyo in 2008, told reporters he had no knowledge about the contamination issues, ....

    When this move to the new locale was first being talked about the contamination issue was first and foremost on the agenda. This was everyone's main concern.

    How could the governor in charge of the move "had no knowledge of the contamination issues"? Shintaro's a criminal and I hope he goes to jail for this.

    Many countries have visa waiver agreements. I strongly doubt the EU would have UK passport holders required to get visas.

    It's plausible but highly doubtful.

    Agree w/ Sensato. What a mismatch in content and title. Terrible click bait.

    The "super value lunch set" should be lowered to 300 yen.

    My cheeseburger is 129 yen. Double that if I'm still hungry for another and it still only comes to 240 yen. Add a drink to that to bring the total up to 300 yen then I'd consider it "super cheap" and worth ordering.

    Trump wouldn't have much he could do since he seems to be alienating friends and allies here in Asia.

    Just like katsu78 wrote above, "No plans".

    Poor girl. I remember this incident.

    But 20 years later is a long time time, especially to remember and recall people, faces events, time, places etc.
