    Even at midnight it is over 30 degrees thru most of July-September. Besides, it's the humidity that drives you insane here.

    Perhaps they should run everything each night from midnight onward until the temperature becomes unbearable, say around about 7:00 am.

    That would also kill two other birds, taking advantage of athletes' jet lag, and making TV viewing more comfortable for the rest of the world.

    BBush, You have repeatedly asked these questions here on JT for years now. Has it advanced anything?

    Still too many unknowns, and they know it.

    Even so, it is probably better to be seen to be planning something, hoping that in the meantime new technology will be born to deal with whatever awaits down there..

    Always had excellent service from many Japanese hospitals in my area, but I do have insurance and I do make sure to speak Japanese.

    This list above must be hospitals which feel actively comfortable dealing with patients who may not speak Japanese, not only with consultation and treatment, but also guiding them through the payment and prescription medication processes..

    As to possible motive. I have seen some reports in the press that he may have been contemplating applying to live in South Korea. That would surely be unforgivable.

    And if he was seen as having close ties with PRC as Triring says above, then DPRK might well have considered whether he has become the PRC's prime candidate to replace an ailing Kim Jong Un, who went through a bad patch not too long ago.

    Or maybe one of the women in his life had a hand in this, but wanted to make it look like the work of the DPRK?

    The headline threw me on this one. For a moment a ray of light shone from heaven. A Tolerance Test, to be administered in the capital of Indonesia? There is hope for the world yet, I thought.

    "Do you consider yourself tolerant or intolerant?" I imagined the question being. And I imagined the vast majority of the good citizens of Jakarta choosing the word 'tolerant'.

    They are probably working on their next target even as they start to lose ground in Mosul. Expect some surprises yet.

    So, let's see. Turkey supports the FSA, which however Russia, the Syrian govt., Hezbollah and the Iranians see as a terrorist organization. Turkey does not support the SDF which she sees as a terrorist organization. The US however supports the SDF, but Assad and the Russian alliance members seem not too bothered about them.

    All sides wish to annihilate IS which they all agree is BAD., oh and al Nusra, al Qaida etc., are almost as BAD.

    There are those who support one side, those who support one or more of the other sides, and then those with no axe to grind who watch the whole mess with despair.

    All the posters above support one side. Clap, clap.

    Would that life were so simple.

    Most of the posters on JT, as too most of the people people in the world, are still trying to see and understand what is happening in poor Syria, but that stance seems to be a no-no now.

    But now I too stand accused of not supporting one side, thereby becoming the enemy I suppose.

    Rewards ending the period of... what? 5 cases hitting a for example 10-yr limit?

    The article does not tell us who offers to pay the rewards or what the time limit is, or even why there might be a time limit on a reward anyway.

    The theory is fine, but care in the communiy is a serious burden, no joke.

    Even if you succeed in giving ex-patients individually-tailored medical, welfare and livelihood support, there is no way of preventing a patient skipping his/her medication, whether by mistake or on purpose.

    Even so, this problem will not just go away, so someone will have to take on more responsibility, and really, who will pay for that?

    Toshiyori, you mention how other countries would not do this, but Trump is threatening today to cancel citizenship or send people to prison for flag burning.

    As to JT reader comments above re: "Language learning?" "English"?

    The article makes no mention of these at all, in fact no mention of what langauage they were tested in.

    From the quoted paragraph below however, we can infer that the literacy/fluency in question is in their native Japanese printed word.

    Quote: "Regarding the slide in the literacy rank, the ministry said it might be attributable to students’ unfamiliarity with the test format and a decline in their reading of books and newspapers."
