Nice of the family member to check on him 12 days after the earthquake....!

That's closely-knit by some families' standards.

Still I don't know what to do with those tossed salad and scrambled eggs, they're startin' again.

Haven't a clue what this is about, but love the lines.

Goodnight, Seattle!

The group also includes Tamayo Marukawa, who recently took over as minister in charge of women's empowerment and gender equality.

Gross insubordination, dereliction of duty, impersonation, fraud.

She'll go far!

Zero emotion. Watch some tv dramas and learn and watch the news. Zero emotion. Arms at sides. Hair combed, and robes immaculate

His 150,000-yen-a-month pay, wretchedly inadequate under other circumstances, sufficed for him

...because he's living with his parents, in a benign parasitism endemic across Japanese society.

Bigger parasites in turn prey on the smaller, adding scant value in a reductionist death spiral.

Although a suicide note was recovered from his locker, an Ibaraki Prefectural Police spokesperson declined to reveal its content

I think we can all guess the copy/paste reason for this copy/paste tragedy.

Well, Rush thought we won. And so do I, by the way.

Rex Harrison was right.

If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages, maybe take an animal degree.

Rex Tillerson was spot on, too.

'king moron.

lie, huff and puff and demonize the “other” to get rich and famous

and even into the White House.

Posted in: Ex-director sues Amnesty Japan for firing him over Japanese ability See in context

Tell me again how many billions of dollars are spent on English education in Japan. I think it’s around $3.5-4 billion every year. 

The fact he does not know kanji is irrelevant. Around 40% of Japanese don’t know kanji either. That’s why they have hiragana and katakana.

Possibly the most misinformed thing I've read on JT. And that's saying something.

I empathise with O' Sullivan, having been in his shoes.

This IS Japan, though, and if Amnesty is to be successful, it must weigh its financial constraints (no PA budget?) with the need for its chief to engage stakeholders as his Amnesty peers in other countries would.

A huge oversight by the selection panel more than anything else. Poor Taro.

Anyone would have found out if their account suddenly got emptied and seized.

You might be surprised how many people wouldn't countersue to avoid the hassle and publicity, and how many are sitting on mountains of cash and never showing it.

John Peel's favourite ever song, Teenage Kicks by Derry's own The Undertones.

Rick Astley's never gonna give you up, and James Blunt will stalk you too, because you're beautiful.

Posted in: Japan's green growth plan propels firms to sharpen environment focus See in context

Itochu Corp. is selling its 20 percent stake in a coal mine in Colombia to Drummond Company Inc, a U.S. coal producer that owns the remaining 80 percent, as part of efforts to promote decarbonization.

Unless it's persuading Drummond to divest from coal, this ain't promoting decarbonisation.

For consumers, recycling PET bottles can be one way to do their part in protecting the environment

Oh yeah, rely on the poorest sibling of Reduce - Reuse - Recycle to save the planet.

What are the energy sources for the recycling, and why can't drinks brands offer powders and syrups for consumers to dilute themselves? I remember - lazy profits.

2/10 for this greenwash.

One way to gauge how civilized a country is is how they treat those in need who can’t help themselves.

The movie I, Daniel Blake is a powerful exposé of Osborne austerity. I wonder how many are still homeless after the bedroom tax and other benefits cuts.

Food and shelter is more important than unproved expensive vaccines

The AZ vaccine is three quid, the price of a sarnie.
