Prosecutors should move ahead with their case against Ghosn. If they can't convict him, then drop the case against these guys.

Some of it is a small group of bigots being particularly noisy, and many of them are being as aggressive as possible, knowing that bigotry in humanity is becoming an outdated concept.

Yet bigotry is often perpetuated by the very people who claim to be calling others out on the same crime.

Sad they wanted to kill themselves. At least they had the consideration to do it quietly.

So will the new series allow for talent to share wishes of harmony with your neighbors and fellow citizens? Or will they be fired as well?

But we should treat everyone equally. Like men and women. Different, but equal.

It's surprising (disturbing actually) that people would down vote the idea of equality for men and women.

Posted in: App launched to issue partnership certificates for LGBT couples See in context

The certificates, created by Famiee Project, aim to help LGBT couples receive important spousal and familial benefits, such as life insurance and landowners' permission to live together,

That's all well and fine, but the landowners' get to decide anyway so it's a moot point.

Having said that, while I think that everyone should have the same benefits, but that if it is not a union between a man and a woman, it should be called a civil union.

It's not the same thing. It's different. But we should treat everyone equally. Like men and women. Different, but equal.

On the surface, it looks like she offed her hubby. If that is the case, it's best that she offed herself as well.

Get the right person for the job. In all cases. Regardless of that person's gender, male or female.

How convenient that she had a knife in her hand while she was being choked.

Good point. I'd like to hear her response.

Hmmm, exactly how smart is it to be building at the foot of an active volcano?

Smart if you use it for geothermal energy!

Self defense?

It's easy to say, "He tried to choke me." And convenient after stabbing him. If it actually was self defense, I hope she had marks to back it up.

I wonder how long the taxi driver will wait before he/she sends the taxi bill to the grieving family.

Why wait?

Posted in: 40-year-old woman dies in avalanche while snowboarding in Aomori See in context

An avalanche in motion is like being in water. Then the flow stops and it packs in like ice, making it almost impossible to breathe - even if your head was poking out the top of the snow. I have a friend who survived being buried in one because he had the wits to create a small air pocket with his arms - and he was wearing a transponder - and his friends used it to find him in about 5 minutes and dig him out.

RIP

Police said Kashiwagi told them he seemed to black out a few seconds before the accident.

To those of you who say the suspect is making an excuse, the news crew interviewed an eyewitness who said that the car suddenly sped up after being parked across the street - or at least was originally going slowly.

This article is only one example of how womens' voices are dismissed, ignored, marginalized, etc.

The article is literally about a woman making her voice heard and affecting change. It reads more like a success story.

Of course you would suggest that. If you had your way, you would make it mandatory.
