I'd love to try it but it's not in my income bracket. My girlfriend loves it, though.

I can't see any reason for the surgeon's saliva to be on the woman's left breast. How did it get there? During the operation, he must have worn gloves.
My guess is that he probably did whatever he did in the ward, after closing the curtain around the bed, so none of the other three patients could see what was going on.

It looks deserted. That plaza gets very cold at night. I'm not surprised there aren't many people around. I've seen that tree. It actually looks quite pretty around dusk.

I think making the draw 2 1/2 years in advance is still too early. Teams' strength can change within a year. Look at England's rise this year.
Why not make the draw after the Six nations tournament ends in February 2019? That would still leave teams six months to plan their strategies. FIFA always does the World Cup draw in December of the year preceding the World Cup; that's also about six months prior to the tournament. Why can't rugby do the same.

I would hardly blame the failure of the TPP on Abe. All the other 11 nations and the Obama administration were in favor of the TPP. Trump has derailed it. I think this will give China impetus to create its own version of the TPP.

Their rooms are impeccable, as you would expect at a Japanese hotel, but I think most foreign visitors will find them too small.
The Yokohama resort project sounds interesting. I am guessing they hope that Japan will have legalized casinos by then and that it will contain a casino.

I'm too polite to mention them, because I know that I do things that might bug my co-workers, just as every other reader posting on this thread probably does something that annoys their co-workers, too.

I'm not a Trump supporter but I don't understand the point of these protests. Are they calling for a coup d'etat? I say give the man a chance and see how he does for four years. If he does a bad job, then vote him out. That's how a democracy works, isn't it?

We can only hope that President Clinton or President Trump will be different from candidate Clinton and candidate Trump.

I don't agree Yubaru. I think Tv programs, especially variety and comedy shows, often do reflect a country's society and pop culture. How someone non-native to a country interprets it is another matter.

The least he could do, if he doesn't want the prize, is to release a statement through his manager, saying something like "Thank you, but I cannot accept this honor." Is that so hard? Actually, I'm surprised the Nobel committee haven't been able to at least contact Dylan's manager.

It's probably relevant because it shows how Akutagawa knew the victim and that she wasn't just a victim chosen at random. That's my guess, anyway.

One thing the story doesn't mention is that the IOC has to approve any change in venue. Koike can't make the decision by herself. So her meeting with IOC President Thomas Bach on Tuesday is going to be crucial.

No, Yubaru, it is not murder. It is negligent driving resulting in death. Unless, of course, you have evidence that it was premeditated.

It's incredible that these two people are running for president of the U.S. I guess all the rest of the world and most of the American people can do now is hope someone better will come along for both parties in 2020.

Miyagi is too far from Tokyo. The athletes won't be able to stay in the Athletes Village at Harumi, so they'll need special accommodation. It will also be inconvenient for fans to go to Miyagi.
I think Gov Koike is getting in over her head about the Olympics. The fact is, it's going to cost a fortune, wherever and however it is held. But changing three venues won't help much. The biggest costs are the stadium, Olympic Village, operating costs and security, according to the report released last week.
