    I wonder if the local watering holes will start to fill up (more so than usual) at 8pm.

    Can't they track the GPS in her iphone?

    This being Canada, I doubt it.

    Nice move. Let's see if the old dogs are capable of learning new tricks.

    @gogogo I didn't down vote you. I just genuinely didn't get what you were saying.

    More concerned with NK than China, if China and Japan actually worked together they would be the 2nd + 3rd economies combined....

    Aren't they already the 2nd and 3rd economies?

    The problem looks like it has more to do with the battery manufacturer than Samsung. Similar to Takata airbags in cars. This doesn't let Samsung off the hook, but it won't stop me from considering their products in the future. I bought a Note 5 last year, so I wasn't planning on buying a new device this year, but I will look seriously at purchasing a Note 8 next year.

    Can we please retire the term "half" from use in any racial or ethnic context, and replace it with "both"? It's use perpetuates the myth that Japanese are somehow of "pure" blood, when it is no more true of them than it is most other historically isolated ethnic groups.

    I'm half ethnic Malay and half ethnic Chinese. I've always described myself that way and will continue to do so, thank you very much.

    @bones I was referring solely to the title of the article. I have no idea if her being Indian or and elephant trainer led to her success. All I know is it is an interesting headline that made me want to read the article. So from my point of view, the headline did what it was intended to do. As for the words elephant and Indian in the same sentence, I sense that you sense some subtle racism is at hand. It smells of a little SJWism to me. Sometimes a headline is just a headline, and there's no ulterior motive going on.

    I really enjoyed the trailer, and can't wait for the movie.

    She is not a haffu as Japanese a term that Japanese love to use... It's so racist to say half because if anything she has the trait of being a double. That makes her superior rather than inferior. We are all humans inside yet so much racism... So sad!

    Haffu is not a racist term. Maybe you're projecting some of your own baggage. Everyone has one ethnic identity, made up of one or several parts. Having more than one ethnic background does not give someone the trait of being double (not sure what this even means), or make them superior. Saying that Ms. Yoshikawa is superior because she has "the trait of being double", is just as bad as the people who try to take away her worth because she is not of 100% Japanese ancestry.

    Irrespective of the contestants, beauty pageants are dumb and outdated.

    Don't most males grow out of this at 8-9 years old?

    No we develop a filter and learn self-control.

    The people on here who are thinking that strict gun control laws should mean zero gun violence are out of their mind. This is a very isolated incident. I can't remember the last time I read about a crime involving a gun in Japan. In the US, gun violence is an hourly occurrence.

    @Robert Dykes The Honda Africa Twin is built on Kumamoto’s “FUN line” which handles large-displacement motorcycles, so today’s news directly affects its production schedule. That line is also responsible for the Honda CBR1000RR, which means it is likely the plant responsible for making the superbike’s successor.

    Can anyone come up with a top 3 of Japanese people who would be recognizable around the world?

    Watanabe Ken Suzuki Ichiro Takeshi Kitano

    I bet most people who live outside of Asia and are not familiar with world politics, would not know who Abe is.

    Nice presentation by the TOC, but seriously couldn't Abe find a better suit?
