    Hashi has what, seven kids? He planning on volunteering any of them to head to the front lines if he gets his way?

    How about they use the soil in the gardens of the Diet and the homes of those proposing such BS? Oh right, nope. They don't want it. Insane that this government does not understand the issues with this.

    I will never understand sentencing here. The poor woman probably still suffers mental health issues because of this let alone physical issues.

    And rude manner? I can only guess she rejected him.

    Many workers are forced to punch out, and then return to their desks to work until 9-10pm or later.

    I'm not sure I actually believe they are "forced". Many stay of their own free will because they FEEL they need to stay. Labour laws in this country actually heavily favour the worker and a company would be in serious legal issues for firing someone for not staying for unpaid overtime. Until the mindset here of the workers change companies will continue to allow them to work for free after work hours.

    RIP. Poor kid probably just wanted to see his mom so climbed up on the table/chairs to get a look. Sorry Gramps, but you don't leave a kid that age alone, more so in a highrise with windows that might be unlocked. I keep wondering how many of these accidents we need to read about before people actually stop leaving their small children unattended. I constantly see small kids in my neighbourhood wandering around alone - not even ele school kids. There is a small pond near my house and I shudder when someone kid will will go in because they are just curious.

    Oh dear. I'm not sure where this woman lives but I have lived in a few places here and the answer is "Japanese parents don't usually discipline their kids." I've sat through tantrums in cafes/izakaya and restaurants, have stepped around howling kids in groceries stores, sat and listened to screaming on the train and have told off kids in the park for being aggressive towards my dogs while parents (okay, moms) sit and do nothing. Like with everything else, teachers seem to be the ones who have the power and do the discipline. Of course, not all moms. I have one friend who will certainly tell of her four year old and I have witnessed what this write describes but mostly I have seen parents ignore dangerous and bad behaviour.

    It should also be mentioned that I've seen kids smacked, dragged and screamed at to scary levels in public. Kids get sent out on the balcony or locked out of their houses in the cold for hours as punishment. Just like in every country, good kids/bad kids and good parents/bad parents.

    This poor woman probably had no idea what to do or where to go and perhaps in her state of mind thought Disney would be a "safe" bet. That or perhaps thought her child would enjoy "the happiest place on earth." Either way, this woman needs help and miscarriages can be devastating to those who wants kids or not.

    @tmarie - there will always be abuse. People will live together without registering their marriage so they can benefit for programs meant for single mothers. Yet all the world around them will think they are married.

    I have no idea but are single mother benefits better than the spouse benefits?

    tmarie would have children penalised for their parents' lifestyles. Oh Cleo give me a break. Trolling is what that comment is.

    The fact that this makes the news in a country of 126 million people reminds us all how safe a country we have the privilege of living in.

    This made the news because the women screamed and people saw this guy fleeing on the tracks. If you think this country is safe, you're clearly a man who doesn't seem to understand the number of women who are victim to gropers each and every day. Comments like yours are why so many women here don't bother to report assaults and attacks. And that is what this was.

    Not a supporter of the death penalty but in this case, just kill him. That poor victim's family. What a senseless murder.

    How will they decide who gets what? Frankly, I think all kids with a single mom under or hovering near the poverty lines should be given free education all the way through up to university graduation. I'm not sure a family with a parent at home not working because of spouse benefits should be allowed such support. Also curious if there will be a clause in it that states the students needs to gain employment for X amount of years or they'll have to pay it back. Will supportive of this, I can see this kind of thing being abused by some.

    These punishments are being orchestrated by other politicians and business people as a way of throwing their competitors under the bus. The names may change, but business goes on as usual: same soup, different bowl. Same everywhere but a clean bowl is nicer than a dirty, old one.

    The media is mostly focused on bits of the $$, while important for SURE they are completely MISSING the racist attitudes forced on CHILDREN, the super nasty political aspects of all this. The obvious lies spouted all over the place......but alas TIJ!!

    Yes. The locals are mostly thinking of just money and are not even interested in how disgusting it is that small children are being taught to hate.

    Sorry Marie, Ivanka made her name in fashion well before her father was elected.

    Wrong. She rode his coattails and THAT allowed her to even get a seat at the table in fashion.

    And exactly HOW is Trump a threat to women? He has named several to important posts. I guess you are unaware that attacks on women and minorities is up because of him okay certain behaviour. If you can't see how someone thinks he can "grab em by the pussy" isn't a threat, I would have to guess you're clueless and/or ignorant.

    Lets face it, you don't like him on a personal level because he doesn't cow down to liberal BS. So you, and SNL etc have decided that smearing the entire family is perfectly OK. I have never met the man so I think it is a bit of a stretch to say I dislike him personally. I don't want anyone to "cow down" to anyone. I believe anyone in power should be worthy of respect and that respect also needs to come from them as well to the people they are in power over.

    His family does enough harm to themselves that people don't need to "smear" them.

    Well...since there are affirmative action laws I`d say that it is the white man being treated as less of an individual. Hahahahaha! Oh good lord.

    and the fact that the children, no matter how old, are not the ones who made the choice that their parents go into politics. Age hasn't been an issue before and it shouldn't now.

    Ivanka is more than happy to step into the spotlight and deserves any roasting she gets. You know who DIDN'T step into the spotlight when her dad was present? Chelsea. And the Bush kids. They had no choice to be there when minors. Ivanka is not a minor, doesn't need to be involved but she's always there and always speaking o the media. Ivanka is playing a very silly game. She's going on and on about feminism when men like her father are the biggest threat to women out there.

    An article about something that happened on SNL and no link to view it... Not much point of the article, no?

    I have hope. The scandal and impeachment of the South Korean leader had been all over the Japanese news. Maybe there is a chance a few will be held accountable? I WISH Abe and his wife but I don't live in Stupidville.

    “She goes at her own pace, and doesn’t think much about her position as prime minister’s wife,”

    Right... That's why she's constantly attending trips with him around the world and more than happy to discuss him and how she is "so" different from her right wing husband.... Give me a break lady. The empresses has no clothes on.

    Winning hearts and minds with his folksy persona. A real man of the people.

    Are you for real? Unless you're female, gay, non-muslim... Why Japan is allowing this man and his country to parade all ver is beyond me. Saudi has a disgusting human right's record and other countries need to stop dealing with them, cheap oil or not.
