End of Abe era leaves Japan still searching for way forward

"Your Shahida Suda as the country's new prime minister on Monday. 71 year old Mr Suder was overwhelmingly elected as the leader of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, replacing Shinzo Abe has dominated Japanese politics for the past eight years. Mr was expected to serve until the end of next year, but announced suddenly he was stepping down last month, pleading poor health. There's now concerned that Japan could be about to return to what became known as revolving door politics when the country changed Prime Minister's almost every year, Rupert Wingfield Hayes reports. Yeah. You see that pit shuttle get this's something No one would have predicted even a few weeks ago. 71 year old Yoshida super being proclaimed leader of Japan's all powerful Liberal Democratic Party. And by default, the country's new prime minister. Mr Sugar is not known for his charisma or his oratory. And as he made his rather ponderous victory speech, you can hear why you know anybody. Ronnie. Still cocaine. I want to break down bureaucratic divisions invested interests, he says on the blind adherence to president indication to form a cabinet that will work hard for the people. That takes a kike Agos, Cary Most Japanese, No, Mr Sugar as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's long serving grim faced spokesman Up till now. He has always been a backroom guy. A fixer. He has none of the charm or diplomatic skills. Mr Abba used TTO win over President Donald Trump. But according to those who know him like economists and long term Tokyo resident Yes, Bacall, Mr Sugar brings other attributes to the game. Here is a man who gets up at five o'clock in the morning. Does 100 sit ups and then reads all the newspapers and by 6 30. He's starting meetings right with business people with advisers, you know, with outside economists, he absorbs like a sponge and wants to get things done for the country. He's not interested in any of the glitz or blink that comes with war nongovernment. The problem for Mr Suder. Is he has no mandate from the Japanese people. His elevation to the top job was a stitch up by L. V P. Party bosses in smoke filled back rooms. Perhaps because of that much is being made of Mr Segers Humble background. The son of a strawberry farmer, he worked in a cardboard factory to pay his way through college. He's certainly very different from most of Japan's recent prime ministers like Mr Abbott, the silent of a powerful political dynasty, but in the scheming world of Japanese politics Rashid, a circus. Humble origins could also be his undoing. According to Professor Koichi Nakano of Tokyo's Sophia University. Mr Silva comes from a humble background. He really doesn't have his own power base. You know, he doesn't belong to any faction on DH. He actually, you know, Rose to power because he was Mr B's preferred choice on the party bosses rally behind him, You know, emergency situation. But once the emergency situation is gone, and once the party bosses study realized that they're not getting all they wanted. I'm sure there's going to be past trouble. They're both from

Before Resigning, Prime Minister Makes A Final Push To Strengthen Japan's Military

"Abe, Japan's longest serving prime minister, is stepping down this week after eight years in office. With his career ending he has made a final push to strengthen Japan's military. As NPR's Anthony Koon reports from Seoul. That push could affect the balance of power in Asia. At a press briefing last month to announce his resignation, Arbet said the country faces and increasingly harsh security environment for North Korea has greatly improved its ballistic missile capabilities. He said he questioned if it's enough just to be able to intercept those missiles. And later suggested Japan also needs a missile arsenal as a deterrent. That could alter the security landscape in Asia. Sheila Smith, the Japan expert at the Council on Foreign Relations, points out that at the moment, Japan is the only country in Northeast Asia that does not maintain ballistic missiles. One of Bob's career long goals has been to throw off post World War two restrictions on Japan's military. He failed to revise Japan's constitution in which Japan gives up the right to wage war. But in 2015, he did push through legislation allowing Japan to deploy troops overseas in support of allies. At the time. He explained it like this. I know From tomorrow, no more. Let us no longer turn a blind eye to the changes in the environment and remain idle said he urged Japanese to be more confident. They also oversaw the making of Japan's first aircraft carriers since World War two President Trump boarded one of them on a visit to Japan last year and praised his host. I want to thank my friend. And your prime minister. Is an extraordinary man. His commitment to improving Japan's defense capabilities. Which also advances the security of the United States of America. President Trump is questioned the need to protect wealthy allies like Japan, who he says don't pay their fair share of defense costs. Matsuhisa Sato, a lawmaker with the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, says that even before Trump, Japan knew that the U. S was weary from decades of foreign wars, almost taken taking a soldier's gotta move. No Sekai. No case took President Obama said that the U. S is going to stop being, the world's policeman says, and the lawmaker added the trend of countries taking more responsibility for their own defence will continue. Regardless of who the new U. S president is Washington in Tokyo insist their alliance remains ironclad. But doubts about America's commitment are driving the Japanese debate about missile defense. Sheila Smith of the Council on Foreign Relations, says this represents a shift in Japanese people's thinking they've grown up with the U. S. Japan Alliance says the you know like the framework within which Japan thinks about its security. They don't have A conversation. I've never really had a thought process in their public policy debate that says So, what do we do if the alliance doesn't work? Former defense official Kyoji Ah Nagasawa argues that Japan now faces twin risks in its alliance with the US home Tonight. One risk, he says, is that the U. S. Might abandon Japan thie. Other growing risk, he says, is that the U. S. May drag Japan into an unnecessary conflict, for example, with China He says Japan should focus on diplomatic solutions such as mediating between Washington and Beijing, rather than seeking new weapons. The outcome of Japan's internal debate on missile defense will become clear by year's end. When Shinzo Abe successor and his government roll out a new policy. Anthony Kun, NPR news soul

Under Trump, US reputation hits rock-bottom: Pew global survey

"For the past three and a half years the united. States has not been very favorably viewed by other Western countries that's according to survey results from the Pew Research Center but a new study they paula shows that our reputation has taken even deeper nosedive just over the past year Jacob poster is at Pugh in Washington Jacob Pugh does a lot of surveys and this is not the first one about America's image what made this survey nick. Well, we've actually been doing surveys for twenty years now, and we've been tracking the international image of the US during that time period and in the current survey in two thousand and twenty, we're finding some the lowest ratings we've ever found among traditional allies of the United States in terms of US favorability including in Japan, the UK Canada you know more than four in ten have positive views of the United States and these are some of the lowest levels of favorability we've ever measured for the United States. The title of the survey says a lot. I think US image plummets internationally as most say country's handled corona virus badly. So how did your survey respondents about the US and the corona virus like what was one of the questions? Where we ask people on whether various countries including their own were doing a good job of dealing with the corona virus outbreak and on that question when we asked about it for the United States, no more than twenty percent and any of the thirteen countries that we surveyed said, the United States was doing a good job of dealing with the krona virus outbreak and that's different from what people told us about their own countries and most of the. Countries we surveyed people were actually fairly happy with how their own country had dealt with the outbreak. The there are places where the US image is seen more positively than other places. What country had the most people who thought the US was responding well to the coronavirus in terms of response to the coronavirus no country was over twenty percent. But when it comes to the US favorability, there are countries were a majority still have a favorable view of. The US, but that number has shrunk dramatically in the last year. South. Korea's one country where fifty nine percent have a favorable view of the US. But even there that's down almost twenty points from two thousand nineteen when seventy seven percent favourable view of the US

World isn't meeting biodiversity goals, UN report finds

"The number of plants and animals on the planet that are at risk today would be far higher without globally agreed safeguards in action to protect him but it still far from good enough UN by diversity exports sat on Tuesday in call for far greater commitment from only Chicago to safeguard human wellbeing in the planet's the body that oversees these work. The Convention on biodiversity urged those gathering for UN summit at the end of the. Month to broaden their ambition from the convention. Here's Executive Secretary Elizabeth Marina Deputy Executive Secretary David Cooper talking to UN uses Daniel Johnson just if you wouldn't mind Elizabeth Merima give me the classification of diversity and in particular why is it important in simple words by devastate is everything around us and when I say everything around us, it means everything we do as human activities affected by busy. Each could be what we do on the land what we're doing. What we do in the forest, what we do on species, animals, plants, I mean, what we do is we produce our food as we consume all by diversities. So our human actions in the nature of virus around us and what we're finding is that if fact but diversity is in massive trouble and your report from the conventional biological diversity, the UN Conventional Biological Diversity tells us that only six out of the world's twenty goals on biodiversity have. been achieved only partially achieved by the deadline, which is actually this year. So to be honest I wasn't aware that the governments of the world had agreed in Japan twenty ten to a series of biodiversity targets and you're saying that only six of twenty goals of being partially achieved by the two thousand twenty deadline. So what is the concern? Which of these? Obviously a very bad report card where have we gone wrong and please don't say everywhere. No because they some progress. But indeed unfortunately by diversity's declining it unprecedented level rate and precious deriving they decline unfortunately. So increasing just as underlying. So indeed this scorecard, his only identify six of the twenties so not even half in the seats. In the areas of deforestation, where at least deforestation is gone down by Fed or two percent fisheries. Management fisheries catches also improved clearly indicating where appropriate policies on fisheries management have been put in place. Then the fishery cage hazing and abundance is increased and improved education of alien species. Particularly from the islands Z. Qualley improved protected areas has increased from ten percent to fifteen percent in terrestrial in three to seven percents on marine areas we also learned my says extinction fishes extension at really threatened in the history of mankind still where conservation measures they've been put in place every improved and reduce extinction of species without which. We and be waste than what we are talking today I think joining us now we are very fortunate have Mr David Cooper. Deputy Executive Secretary of the UN. Conventional. Biological, diversity. Welcome to you Mr Cooper. Thank you very much. Daniel. Thank you ever so much for joining us. We were just talking there with Elizabeth, my executive secretary on the really mixed report card. I. Think that's the charitable worth putting it off. The biodiversity targets that was back in two, thousand ten. So a decade on. We've got six of twenty goals partially achieved although Elizabeth was saying that the has been some good work on eliminating foreign species from islands and in the fisheries to and other national programs that perhaps you could tell me a bit more about to give us maybe a little bit of positive news. What is a pretty Hesse mystic outlook for humankind and also forbade diversity moving forward? Yes. Thank you very much indeed even in those targets that haven't been pasta passages talks that haven't been achieved. Is. Some signs the progress as as in his methods as as mentioned in which Houston deforestation rates in fooding fisheries management in dealing with invasive alien species and in reducing. Rate. So numbers of bird mammal extinctions that occurred over the past ten years or indeed over the life of the Convention would bean at least to perhaps up to four times higher without the actions of being taken. So one clear message despite the disappointing results one clear message is policies do work if they are put in place and implemented, and so we need to learn from that we. Need to be encouraged by that, we need to step up those policies more widely in order to reduce the greater biodiversity loss. The report also shows that if he wants to actually not only we do survey to biodiversity loss that Ben that curve and put me on a path to recovery than more fundamental actions also needed looking at the way we produce and consume food in particular that. Sustainable production and consumption captains more broadly as well. I'm just going to dive in that because the report is pretty alarming and I'm very glad to hear about some of these national projects that have been successful in. Boosting bio-diversity, but the report says that the rate of biodiversity loss is unprecedented in human history I guess we did know that really and precious intensifying and living as a whole being compromised, and of course, we can't have this discussion without talking about covert and how the degradation of our natural environment has I suppose, but closer into contact with viruses in the natural world, is that the kind of thing that's really going to galvanize support for greater support for native greater protection for nature if we don't do so we're going to be huge trouble ourselves forms. Suddenly I I. Hope. So there's Very clear evidence as you say that the degradation of of ecosystems encroachment into international areas, unregulated wildlife trade, these things. Increase the risk of emergence of future. Disease increase the risk of future pandemics, and conversely, if we can invest in conservation an investigation regulating control wildlife trade, we will reduce those risks. So these are suddenly Lead important reasons on top of wanting to prevent six-man south extinction. These really positive reasons also for investing in IDA versity.

These days the Mona Lisa also called in Italy login Kanda and her famous enigmatic smile hang in a prominent place in the Louvre in Paris. It holds the Guinness World Record for the highest known insurance valuation in History at one, hundred, million dollars in nineteen, sixty two. So. That would be about eight hundred million dollars today. Over six million people go to see it each year. It's so popular that you can't even snap a quick Selfie of it without having a few dozen other strangers, hands, and cell phones in the frame. This popularity certainly wasn't the case when the painting was I hung in the Leuven eighteen o four or for the century subsequent. Neither was popular with critics when the artistic elite who often relegated it to the low end of DAVINCI's work it was basically just another painting. It was so unsocial in fact that it took the better part of twenty four hours before staff even noticed the painting was missing in Nineteen. Eleven. A handyman named Vincenzo Perrugia was working in the museum and he simply waited in a closet until after the museum had closed. Tuck to the painting under his smock walked on out. He was unwittingly aided by a plumber also working in the museum who unlocked a for Peruta when he found himself stuck inside. The police were called and they searched the museum. The only sign they found the Japan Kanda was frame laying on a staircase. Though police did find some twenty one other paintings in the museum. The curator's had previously reported missing. The. Search went citywide then national then international. Ships were searched before they left France or after arriving in their port of call. A reward of over half a million dollars in today's money was offered. The Mona Lisa's picture was printed in newspapers all over the world. It became a of Mona Lisa Mania. The theft of this single painting served a spawn multiple criminal enterprises. People on the wrong side of the law knew that those with more money than morals would want to buy. LEGITIM- Kanda. A pair of confidence men from Belgium hired a small army of forgers to make quality fakes, which they then sold to select around the globe. They made sure their buyers were unlikely to ever meet and rested soundly knowing that no one would let on that they had purchased the most famous stolen painting in the world. Though today, one of them would probably take a selfie with it. The huge reward and the number of fakes in circulation meant the police were inundated with leads. For two years they searched tirelessly. But Fruitlessly The sixty man strong force even interviewed, Peruta Twice. But decided, he couldn't be the criminal mastermind they were looking for. Not only did those two years not yield the Mona Lisa the police didn't even find the forgeries. The head of the Paris police retired in shame. Did, peruse, you get an enormous payday for the stolen painting. People were soon to learn that he didn't steal it for money. When ferruccio approached museum in Florence to sell them the painting, the museum's director called the police instead. After. His arrest Russia's stated. I worked in the Louvre making frames for paintings stolen from Italy by France every day I pass login Kanda and swore I would return it to its rightful home. He seemed convinced he would be heralded as a hero. This was sadly not the case but the Italian courts were sympathetic giving him only a year in prison for the world famous theft.

"Standing close to each other people should space out. That's going to be really hard thing to do in Japan where everything is packed in tight as humanly possible. All the time talking about food. Walk you beef. We've mentioned it before we've mentioned about how they're trying to keep the strains pure they're actually trying to basically get copyright actually forget the word for it but they wanted the patent may be the genome or the genes of the wabe strain. So that would keep it. You know you can say it's actually officially real wad you beef. And what isn't one of the problems they were having with people trying to steal genetic material and try to raise similar cows in other countries. And of course that wouldn't be real beef. It would have the same system the same care things like that. This is really important to them. But they have birthed a calf born from freeze dried semen so now they can keep the best seamen sort of on tap and create the best. Wasiyu beef going forward because they will be able to pick the best semen that goes into the best cows to produce the best cast a thirty kilogram calf was born. It's an excellent health. It is destined to be devoured by people. But at least they'll appreciate it. I guess because that's just the circle of life now freeze dried semen into a wonderful new life that will be torn apart by the mulling jaws of humanity. And that's your final note from engineers Japan this day. Wash your hands. Wash your face you know. Stay safe stay away from people. Be careful of the love hotel if you're participating in those activities Most important of all. It seems like if you have good semen you can get that freeze dried now..

"Hundred and seventy seven kilograms so congratulations Japan is seen as very polite society it's sort of as a standard higher than that of other nations and people have to learn to adjust to the standards of Japanese etiquette and how to live in your day to day life the thing is that doesn't mean Japan is exempt from Tom Dick heads and assholes and things like that that's of course where this story is going there was a man who felt like it was his destiny his obligation listen to educate other people and it seems specifically women that if they were walking while using a smartphone it would be a really good idea for him to slam into them now they do not choose this language by accident he is not bumping them he is not nudging them hard he is slamming into them because people actually have been physically injured by this is a forty nine year old man and he was slamming into women who were walking while using their smartphones he said as a warning around Tokyo this station called Meizhou brushing my and in this is where most of these incidents took place that's how he got caught because he wasn't going around doing it in different areas clearly he takes his train to or from work or something like that and if you saw woman on her smartphone he would walk into them and hit them as hard as he could he stated two years ago I slammed into another woman she went tumbling down the stairs since it's dangerous so he's referring to walking while looking at your smartphone I slam into people to warn them once every three days so I don't know why he's chosen once every three days maybe he just means like twice a week but there have been two other women physically hurt and taken to hospital because of this kind of behavior one had some broken bones they don't say what maybe just broke her little finger when she fell down broke a leg so that was really unclear I think that's one of the things it the severity of the injury actually does mean something but the second one she hit her head one of the conversations I actually was having yesterday with a friend was how easily it is to kill yourself just by hitting your head like we're talking about like fights in high school in guy gets hit he falls down hits his head on the concrete and dies and you just think of how easy it is to your head and kill yourself but I find a couple of points about this interesting because he saying that walking while looking at your smartphone is dangerous but I'm pretty sure slamming into people on purpose is just as if not more dangerous especially because he's doing it clearly quite violently enough to knockdown other human beings and the only people mentioned in this are women and I get the feeling that also might be on purpose because he being a man is probably bigger and he thinks he stronger than women and if there ends up being some sort of incident he can either run away or take the more but you can see his he's not attacking people or educating people who are bigger and stronger than him he's picking on people who are I assume smaller and weaker because I'm betting if I was walking along on my smartphone he would not slam into me because first of all I don't know how big he is but I you know being in Japan I bet I'm bigger she probably bounce off me I've actually had that before I had some guys do the like shoulder bump while I was walking in the subway and his shoulder just bounced off mine because I was moving forward and it's a it's a mass in weight and momentum Kelly relation that he clearly had not studied physics enough to put that together so this guy has been arrested and I'm assuming they're going to charge him with multiple incident senses of assault because it's been three women mentioned in the story but there have been more incidences in.

"Okay in Japan Airlines generally known as touch my legs out into the aisle and trip people as they walk by and it's an interesting way to do it because it's like you can see what seats are empty and what's ether taking you'll actually have a sense of how fully your airplane is before you get on it they have made an update to their system and the update is they're going to put a little smiley face on some seats now those little smiley faces this actually mean there's going to be a baby or a toddler sitting in that seat so this gives you the passenger who may be does not have a child toddler or something with you the ability to sit as far away as physically possible from those babies who quite frankly may spend a significant portion of the flight mule ing and braying and doing what babies and children do some people have thought this is a great idea and some people have thought it really unfair and it's kind of shaming parents I don't honestly as someone who's traveled who has been in both positions I have had babies and I have them on airplanes and I have flown on airplanes with other people's babies and my babies have screamed and other people babies so once you've been the parent you don't get as angry at the people who have the babies because you understand they don't Wanna be there they do not want to be on an airplane with a baby no one actually does there making that baby to whatever country they're taking into out of some sort of obligation. I of course had to take my kids to Canada so that my parents could meet their grandkids and this was of course a very big deal for them and it had to be done I did not WanNa make the flight I did not want to take the baby on the flight and I spent a significant portion of the flight stand ending holding the baby trying to walk around and move and I actually had some dude walk up to me so the baby's crying he's not freaking out but he was crying he's unhappy and he started sticking his finger in my baby's face and going you just have to know how to do it and he made it significantly I I think people seem to believe they are better with other people's children than they are because one of the first things you have to do is actually know the child and what they're going to like and dislike in sticking your finger in childrens face was not a way to calm them down or make them feel better maybe this worked in his family unit I do not know I do know that I had an intense inst- desire to kick him in the chest and hopefully into the door knocking the door off bringing the airplane down into the water and killing us all of course but at the same time this is gel the other reason it doesn't matter is it sound Carey so if you are in the mid or back part of the plane and the babies up at the front you're still going to hear the baby it might be less but at the end of the day you're never escaping a baby because you're both in the same tube this become a reoccurring story in the news and it comes up now semi regularly I actually Kinda stopped doing it because as I think these are kind of slow news days or they want to get something involving the word Japan and sex in it because that that makes clicks in the word virgin also makes it sort of ha ha look at these Japanese people who are all virgins yet it is a significant problem this is referred to in a recent article that I read had as Japan's sex recession and what they're saying is one in every ten males in Japan is a virgin they haven't had any sort of sexual relationships and what was addressing I don't know if this was done on purpose but it was referred to as the surging virginity rate and I could only think it would be really entertaining to write an article like this and put it in his any sort of Phallic things as possible and yet still play it off as if you didn't know you were doing that on purpose is a phallic increase in the amount of virgin and Japan's only like that but I don't write these articles and that might be the reason why the real concern here is that there's already a population decline in Japan there more old people than young people and they start dying off the population's going to diminish significantly and the problem is there aren't enough babies being born to replace them and right now predictions are saying the population of Japan will decline by half over the next fifty years if nothing changes people in general in these articles blame a couple of set things it's almost like violence and then violence is blamed on video games those kind of arguments it's like they bring up something that they can an attack even if that thing doesn't make sense now the first one does sort of make logical sense it's the long work hours and the poor work life balance that is partially true but when they find studies the number of virgins who work these long hours inconsistent and that's one of the more important things because the reason I started talking about this article that I read is because it actually did some interesting statistics because it seems that job security and financial the insecurity are the actual issues that contribute to people remaining virgins for long times and that would imply that if you don't have any money you don't have money to go out coach you don't have money to go out you can't meet a partner you can't have a sexual relationship with that partner and therefore you remain a virgin there is the instability that this it creates makes it difficult for you to forge long-term fruitful relationships is what they found within the various age-groups is that part time workers are four times more likely to be virgins than people with stable regular jobs unemployed people are eight times more likely which is very clear that it actually has very little to do with the long work hours because the people who have the long work hours in this statistically are actually having the most sex or they have the least number of virgins so they have had sex so it seems that the unclear future the Kulti's young people are having to survive is what is actually having the negative impact because these numbers are consistent and that's something that the theory of long work hours doesn't account for so what actually needs to do I still think work life balance important because if everyone has a job that's great if everyone has a job in their exhausted you still have problems with birth rate but it shows that stability is one of the things that creates long in relationships and long lasting relationships lead to people having sexual intercourse and therefore hopefully producing children in meaning that Japan the country will not disappear in the future this takes us to a secondary story now there's a party in Japan it's very fringe recalled the anti NHK party may NHK's the National Broadcasting Service and they charge fees we've talked about it several times on engineers Japan they are supposed to collect fees from every house but there's no punishment for not doing or at least there hasn't been until recently the problem is they use like collection agencies in those collections and Caesar Bits Shady sometimes using the imitation tactics and stuff so people don't like that aspect and also people high up in the NHK like ten years ago all got not going on holidays and using public funds to live fairly lavish lifestyles and people are saying well why am I paying H K fees if these guys are using that money to go on holidays the whole point is supposed to be paying for television and NHK programming while some of it's very good it's public broadcasting so a lot of it is not in that somebody keep in mind so there is thirty that it was set up to demolish the NHK's kind of their catchphrase now for some reason they were talking about overpopulation which again is not the problem Japan spring from I think they were talking about overpopulation of the planet the leader of the anti-itch case Ed to put it roughly we should wipe out races that have babies like Eddie his although he personally has no motivation to do so so what the man is saying is the overpopulation of the world could be solved if we committed genocide which is a very radical position to take especially in Japan which is honestly very pacifist peace-loving nation that wasn't an off he had to explain his position isn't it good for things to be natural natural order God created people killing each other as part of God's system to the I read this in text this was not an interview that I read on TV or something so it's very difficult for me to gleam the actual feeling behind these statements was he making it very extreme joke or is he actually serious that we and I don't know who he is because I don't think he means Japan should go out and commit genocide in countries overpopulated I think he just means other people should do that and we should just sit by and let it happen but the real problem is I can't tell if he seriously not the getting rid of the NHK is his serious platform and they would like to do that they do say a lot of other stuff that's weird and yet they are trying to be taken seriously as a political already so I don't think they're going to have much success if the leader keeps saying things like this an interesting record has been a Steve I guess in Japan and it was the volume of cocaine seized from a freighter arriving in a place called Toyohashi was one hundred and seventy seven kilograms and that is more in one take then all of last year so last year piece seized one hundred and fifty five kilograms of cocaine nationwide so that means every port every airport everywhere they were able to catch people with cocaine if all put into a pile was one hundred fifty five kilograms so that was sort of not necessarily a record but this one shipment is.

"You're actually going to be paying exactly the same amount so if you go to mcdonald's or k._f._c. or something like that. You're going to notice that. Everything is still priced the same but that's because you're actually going to be paying different rates. You can get taxed at a different so it comes out to the same price at the end of the day so that's confusing the interesting side issue because this tax rate raise has been delayed multiple times james. Most people are having like a weight. Sit and wait see what happens before they actually went and updated their systems so right now. There's a huge rush on cash registers. They don't have enough cash registers do the dual tax system so they don't have enough cat registers in place that can actually handle the taxes that need to be pay so this is a problem because these companies in the next couple of weeks. I'll have to get up to speed otherwise they won't be paying the taxes properly and that is one of the reasons why you should have a simple flat tax okay so we have some island news.

"Airplane may have been a chinese when this was a while ago since i don't focus on career stories i didn't actually write it down so i'm just doing this off memory but they were shooting at airplanes in the sky taking yourself out of this agreement to have more information because of basically historical article events you're just doing despite which is absolutely why they're doing it but honestly the world is bigger than that. It doesn't seem like the best idea so this is going to continue continue and i'm just wondering how far it's going to go before someone actually goes look. We have to solve this problem because it doesn't seem like it's going to be the japanese apennines. It doesn't seem like it's going to be the koreans and i'm wondering if trump is going to make this better or worse because he is actually the leader of america in america is the country they would both look to to sort of help solve this problem so basically the world's in trouble enrolling in die drones have mentioned i think three or four times on the podcast now because flying drones overcrowding has been made illegal in japan of course you know that then includes there are certain areas where you aren't allowed to fly drones that was probably pretty pretty obvious like you're not allowed to fly a drone over the prime minister's house. I mean probably the same in every country not allowed to fly drones over certain places. The imperial palace and japan is one of those places a man was arrested and he flew over a very crowded park outside the imperial palace and then fluid over the palace. That's actually to lousy. Brooke not allowed to fly drones overcrowded people and you're not allowed to fly over the imperial palace. He was arrested has been brought to prosecutors probably again not a massive thing. He's probably just gonna get a fine. Maybe get his drone taken away from him his statement though i knew it was a prohibited place but i wanted to try out the drone near the imperial palace so basically easily he just says i know it was bad but i wanted to do it anyway. That's not a very good defense but it also turns out. He just bought the drone clearly not a man who makes good decisions because you buy a drone i. I don't think that's a bad decision. I think they're really expensive and overpriced for what people are getting out of them but you know drone footage is really cool but if you just bought a drone and then immediately said i'm going to start doing uh-huh legal things with it you probably aren't the kind of person should have a drone in the first place you can tweet questions or comments at new genucel japan or joined the facebook group on facebook such an engineer's japan japan visit ninja news japan dot com for links to i tunes or subscription options. Thank you for listening sexy at hamis in our last three the day. I'm gonna make really short because it is underwear. Theft can't stop doing underwear theft. An underwear underwear thief was caught. He had two hundred pairs of underwear when they went and sacked his house. It's his second arrest in two months for stealing underwear. You're so no sympathy there hasn't he's clearly one of these guys who just does it the only but there was interesting was he said i want to steal underwear when i drink alcohol so he is now somehow connected the relaxing pleasure of drinking alcohol with going out and stealing when women's underwear.

"Out so it seems like in japan if you are particularly attractive and i think there's probably true all over the world because there is there have been studies that have shown that attractive people just have better lives cbs overall. They get treated better. People are more likely to believe them. <hes> they get lighter sentencing in court and whatnot but it plays out even more so in japan where physical attractiveness is so so overtly acceptable and they talk about it and it's so open. It's an interesting cultural phenomenon because i think it happens in other cultures but they don't. I want to admit it whereas in japan it's very overt. There has been a lot of tension between japan korea south korea lately. There's always tension between in japan and north korea so that actually that doesn't need to be said but sometimes south korea and japan are very good friends and sometimes they hate each other recently in korea area. They went after mitsubishi said because of wartime enslavement. You need to pay these families of workers x. Amount of money and japan's like we've done this before we paid the money. We're not doing it again and this has gone back and forth but it's really soured relations between the two countries and this brought anything that includes both a japanese person and a korean person to the forefront of the news. We have two stories. The first one is a ministry of health bureaucrat. A japanese ministry of health bureaucrat in korea was drunk and of course as we learned from our police story earlier. Being drunk does not equate well with making good decisions. His flight was delayed or it was late or he wasn't allowed to board quickly enough. Maybe he was one of these self important people who thought he should get on first and he decided that the adult solution to this problem was to start shouting. I hate koreans in english so as a professional english teacher for many many years. I'm happy that he's decided to take on english. Ah the international language but it seems like an ineffective way to display your anger actually found that more koreans per capita spoke english functionally optionally than japanese do so they were actually very likely to understand what he was saying but he was just basically ranting and raving saying 'i hickories maybe he was just taking it out on the korean staff. Maybe he wasn't being racist but that is being incredibly generous considering the sentiments of old people in both countries it ended up with an out of court settlement that means he. She probably paid off the staff that he was abusing and he also received a one month suspension. He was punished..

"Like that but i bet he wouldn't have had to pay the whole charge but of course poor judgment and alcohol go together so because he was drunk. I don't think he has forgotten everything. I think what happened was does he was drunk and got angry and started swinging at people and now he's just looking for a way out so once again disappointed that the police don't seem to understand crime as well as a regular other person like me also.

I've never had the smooth moves. There's some some hot hip lingo for you to connect act with someone in at any real deep way on the internet i certainly i could probably never get a date tinder in something like that would be an absolute failure for me unless they were really into like interesting facts about bats in echo location. 'cause that is my immediate. Instinct is just make fun of the whole process of the bus trying to get to know each other over the internet and chat so i'm kinda glad i missed this segment of society where people meet on apps apps and programs and chats and stuff because i've not good at it so i would have been a failure at that no question. This woman went to this boy's house. He took him to a love hotel. So that's already statutory rape. She's in trouble for rape <hes> and then she's also in trouble for your child pornography because she actually took pictures and maybe videos of them kissing there was nothing particularly explicit but it is still her properly kissing a very young boys boy. That's child porn now stuck on top of it. A couple of interesting facts came out. She already has two children now. She's twenty three. Her first. Child is five in her second. Child is three three. She had the kids when she was in high school in the father was in middle school so her friends said she has always been shattuck on which was a word. Maybe you're japanese. He's word for this week. Despite the the lesson about i at the beginning of the episode if you have read about japanese stuff you've heard of lowly khan and this is basically basically lolita complex and so they stuck those two words together you get lonely and that is adult men being into really young women that would in my mind. It's still apply if you change the genders but of course in japan. They came up with another one..

"Magazines. It's all rumors and stuff like that and they did serve and that's of course going to be one of the best surveys because magazines means do the most scientific survey they surveyed one hundred people just very small sample size and it was thirty to thirty nine year old women exclusively and the question was how do you like men to refer to themselves so really the question is you're gonna make it more easy to understand english. What usage edge of i should a man use when referring to himself because in japanese this is your japanese lesson for this week. There are a lot of different ways to say. I one of the things i learned one. I started learning japanese properties. There aren't really that many bad words. It's the usage of the words you could say you. You should leave the way i would be mean to someone is the level or the words. I choose to say you should leave. I wouldn't say you're an asshole because that doesn't really the translate very well the way you do is you talk down to people so you talk to them like they're beneath you and use the very specific language to say mean things. I i did learn a song. I had some kids teach me a song and it was all different ways to call someone in idiot so they had a whole and bukavu which he probably if you've interest in japan you've heard buckle before it's in a lot of anime a who is basically the same thing he just means more on radiant but then it got all into vegetables so calling doing someone a pumpkin is the same as calling someone stupid calling someone a cucumber or carrot or something like that is also calling them stupid. There's an interesting side note..

"<music> thank god you thinking it's tuesday. Mine engineers japan came out today day. It usually comes out on thursdays. I huge amount of people don't even notice because they just get it on the weekend or whatever i decided to switch my i to podcasts so ninja news. Japan will come out on tuesday. Veloce podcast will now come out on thursday because i do my recording on tuesday which means i do all my notes notes on tuesday morning so my research from the week is culminated on a tuesday. This being news oriented spite the fact. It's only a few days. I figured it'd be better to to have the news be as fresh as possible because it is relatively timely. I know if you're listening to this podcast. You're not really worried about timely news because it's not actually what we're doing here. The loss of podcast because it's just opinions and talk in general stuff doesn't actually matter if it comes out at any time so it's essentially supposed to be timeless so i figured the swap made more sense so tuesday's because i record engineers japan will now becoming on tuesdays philosophy podcasts if you listen to that becoming out on thursdays if you don't i mean you can subscribe to it or not. I'm not gonna push you. I'm not one of these lichens subscribe guys. It's not early. This week is just this is what it's going to be from now on you. You probably don't care. I basically just update my podcast once a week. Sometimes i think i should start a survey podcast like not focused on japan. I i have another podcast in it's focused on general topics but i ended up talking about surveys a lot and i really enjoy talking about surveys. I used to teach a class at a big steel import company in english class for a high level executive assistant so it was all really nice ladies who were assistance to the president of the company vice presidents and the board of directors and stuff so they were all really really smart. I started bringing in for them. A chart of the week charts most often come come from <hes> surveys in the like. I mean i know it's just visual representations of information but they do. They do base a lot of the stuff on surveys and that's interesting information at first they thought it was really funny is kind of this weird quirky thing the teacher did but then after a while they got really into it and they started really look forward to the chart of the week a lot of the stuff on ninjas japan almost weekly we hit surveys and i just really enjoy the survey content and i was thinking i could branch out. I don't have time to make another podcast. I'm already working on about four or five projects at the same time so i don't really have time to start another podcast a should i ever end up having time to do you nothing but podcasting professionally. I think that might be an interesting direction going but anyways joshi spot so spa is a fairly fairly common name in japan for you know garbage magazines..

What are they being taught where their aspiration is to be a salaryman for girls at high school number number. One was civil servant number. Two is nurse number three with singer so you actually see the same pattern the number one and number two spots get overtaken by sort of more realistic aspirational jobs but number three that number three is that core group that still holds onto the dream from when they were young and then number nine again because number ten didn't exist it was a tie was shop assistant or writer writer again. One of my dreams something. I always wanted to do shop. Assistant seems like one step away from salarymen and it makes me sad for the youth japan again. We're going to need shop assistants. It's great that they exist. It's a fine job to have but aspire towards more and i don't know if that's inspirational or depressing for you but have you ever made a japanese kid.

"Mississippi. I've never worn a bra so i don't know if this is how it's done but they are actually saying that women should be leaning forward so their breasts actually fill up the cup and they said that can increase the bra cup size by up to two sizes. No honestly all that information means basically nothing to me but it has turned out a majority of engineers japan listeners are female more than half of the people who listen to this podcast are women type human beings and so if you would like this or any other kind of information if you'd like more details. You might actually have to help me out. Help me focus my research. I i actually feel like i might be being a a little creepy right now in a weird way even the less completely unintentional what i'm saying is there are stories that i don't hit that you would be interested in. You should tell me about those stories. I'm not saying and yeah. I'm not going to talk anymore because of realized i've already painted myself into a corner like that. Last new story and i should just stop while i'm ahead <music>. The japanese word for this episode is doto which would translate to ethics and the reason. I bring it up. It's a course that children's study eddie in japanese schools and tries to teach you about being a good person i went and did what is very traditional japanese thing you go for an open house. You watch your kids kids in class and you watch what they're doing. I watched my daughter's doto class and the lesson of the day what they were trying to instill in the children was that people who are strict with you are actually the people who care about you. The most of the people who seem harshest in meanest are often doing doing that because they love you the most which is very very unusual way of putting it. It's very japanese thing but it is trying to get. They're trying to say they're saying like your teachers are strict with you. They make you do your homework. Your parents can be strict with you and that's because they care about you and people just let you do what you want. They don't they don't care about you. I i get the point of that lesson but since it's come up <hes> i've been reading about it came up in a in a japan times article in a couple of other things and there was a a boy. This is one of the stories from the textbook is there was a boy who does chores and he gives his mom and invoice and it was you know i did. I washed the i did the laundry i washed some staff and gave a little price and she paid him quite happily for doing his chores but then she turned around and gave him an invoice invoice was for loving him and taking care of him and making him food but the listed price of each thing with zero because she was doing it out of a sense of love in this this is the boy had a revelation in a pinch of sorts. He realized that he had been selfish. Ignorant the interesting side note though is that this was acted <music> out by in the book by western people so it was a little western kid and his mom and there was an underlying implication that a western kid is selfish and would actually charge their parents for doing chores where it would be almost unthinkable for a good japanese child to do the same despite the fact that most men men in japan grow up completely reliant on the women in their life like live at home with their mom until they get married and in the immediately transfer all those duties onto their new wife <hes> so most japanese are not particularly independent. They can't really take care of themselves. I know a lot of japanese. Men cannot cook anything like i'm not joking when i say they they would have trouble making toast. They don't know how to run a washing machine. They don't know how to do these sort of basic life skills the fact that i cook and i wash and i take care of my house and all these other things when i was single was very appealing to japanese women because i thought it was amazing that i could do these things..

"Hi, and welcome to Japan this week a quick recap of stories we've been following on the Japan today website for the week ending. November sixteenth two thousand eighteen I'm Jeff Richards. Thanks for joining us. And let's get right to it. Okay. In our first story. The Cuban ambassador to Japan was denied a room at a Hilton hotel in Fukuoka last month. Why? Well, the US hotel group cited Washington's economic sanctions against that country. The hotel Hilton Fukuoka Seahawk said it refused. The ambassadors stay in order to comply with US laws as an American company. However, the local government has instructed the hotel to correct the practice as Japanese law prohibits hotels from rejecting guests based on nationality. In fact, the Japanese law stipulates that hotels should not reject guests except for cases involving infectious diseases or illegal activities ambassador. Carlos Pereira was visiting Fukuoka to meet with Cuban players who belonged to the SoftBank hawks professional baseball team a Hilton public relations officials said they declined stays by government officials and those related to state run companies from. Countries that are subjected to US economic sanctions such as Cuba, North Korea, Iran and Syria Japan today reader big in rights, you can boil it down to two choices the Fukuoka Hilton was either ignorant of the laws in the country. It was operating in or it knew what the laws were but decided to break them either due to an ill advised decision of its own or a directive from its head office in the USA..

"Of the cars yet, I got agree with the above commenters. I mean, great big old American cars, not being popular in Japan. Go figure, I mean, have you seen the roads here? What are you folks think let us know on Japan today dot com? Ludd on the tracks. Well, hopefully, not according to our next story. The transport ministry will prohibit passengers from carrying unpack knives onto all trains Japan from next April under new security measures announce this week the ministry said train operators will be able to force passengers off of the trains. Hopefully, hopefully, while these trains are not in motion in case of any violations. How effective this policy will be remains unclear since train operators won't be required to check all baggage. We're talking about carrying of knives here on your person, not those packed away in a bag, and there is no security screening for passengers at the Shinkansen or bullet train stations or any other trains for that matter in Japan. According to the revised version of ministry ordinance that regulates carry on luggage knives. Hatchets saws and scissors are expected to be added to a list of prohibited. Items. Jeez. I kinda thought those things would already be prohibited. But I guess I stand corrected. The ministry has been considering measures to beef up security and trains since a man went on a rampage on June ninth aboard a bullet train bound for shin-osaka station from Tokyo killing one man and injuring two women since then bullet train operators have increased the number of security guards and patrols in trains and started providing instruction for crew on how to respond to emergency situations. The proposed plan does not get much support from Japan today. Readers psycho, fiscal rights bullet trains are extremely safe. I wouldn't wanna see them overly increased security or their budget just to stop one idiot. Every few years when hundreds of millions of.

"Especially in Tokyo they are taxis everywhere, and they are highly regulated from the drivers themselves to the businesses that operate the taxi cabs and how they make sure that they are up to par that they're maintained that they're all good to go. It's all about safety here, a spokesman for the ministry of land infrastructure and transport said that an issue with ridesharing services was that while the driver is in charge of transporting passengers, it's unclear who's in charge of maintenance and operation. Again, this is what I'm saying about safety and user protection. Ridesharing though, is not the only service in Japan feeling the impact of these government restrictions. Strict new rules on home sharing came into force last month that have radically reduced the number of listings on sites such as Airbnb if you were thinking about coming over here, and this is all the specially at a time when Japan is wanting to show its international face ahead of hosting the rugby World Cup next year. And of course, the summer Olympics in twenty twenty readers of Japan today were divided as you would expect. We had. We had people from both sides of the aisle Smith in Japan, said, sawn is right on this one. And the only thing you might say is incorrect about his statement is that they've fallen behind in more areas than he mentioned for the same reasons. Good point Laguna wrote Japanese cities have taxis in every double arm's distance. So I personally preferred the convenience of those and suspect that most Japanese due to rural areas are completely different story, especially with declining population and resulting elimination of bus services. Absolutely. Good point. Tokyo is one thing, but the areas where people are living in these services are kind of slowing down or setting down completely different story. Pure guy. Jin wrote pros and cons aside. What I like here is the. Candid nature of the statement without pulling any punches, like a boss. Good comment. And yes, this is a very uncommon thing for Japanese business leader to save very candid pen, declare rights. I don't know of sewn is correct in calling Japan stupid. But I do think there's a middle ground, allowing competition and more innovation to change the current system, boom drops. Mike, that is the comment to end all of these comments because it's right in the middle there, and it really does bring it all home. Why don't we invite these companies in and let them see how they do and let the consumers and the public decide also let's regulated a little bit so that we can get some safety issues. Taking care of this is Japan after all. Okay, it's the middle of the show, and you know what? That means time for our weirdo story of the week. We never seem to run out of them here on Japan. This week police have arrested a man on suspicion of sexually molesting a woman in her twenties. Now this incident occurred at around one AM on may twenty nine, but the guy was only identified and picked up this week. Police said the suspect Takumi Niki accompany employees came up behind the woman as she was walking home in Yokohama and groped her, but and breasts when the woman ran away. Nikki the dude chased after her for about one hundred meters. And then forcibly kissed her police said Nikki has admitted to some of the charges. Some he was quoted as saying, I was feeling aroused and groped her when I realized that there was no one in sight. However, I don't recall forcibly kissing her. If that's not creepy enough. Here's the worst part. Normally when we have these stories on Japan today, it's an older man probably in his fifties or sixties get this folks. This person is only twenty one years old twenty one years old. Now, a number of similar crimes have been reported in this neighborhood since last summer and police are questioning NICKY about his involvement in those incidents to last since last summer that makes them about twenty years old back then I've magin these guys could find more on this kid if they check the high school that he went to, he seems like that type of guy. Japan today, reader girl in Tokyo is not surprised by such incidence, my friend and I reported a group of men following us and making lewd comments. And the police just started asking us why we were out so late at night. The misogyny and Japan is so pervasive that I don't really have much hope. Things will change anytime soon. Meanwhile, I think women should just start kicking these guys..

"Heat stroke can creep up on you, sensible advice, right? But apparently not a lot of people are heating it, especially teachers. We're hearing a six year old boy who fell unconscious died after he attended an outdoor class for about two hours with his teacher and classmates in h. e. prefecture. That's one of the inland areas where it is super hot rights. Japan reader, Chris Pisanu dangerously high temperatures. Failed to be recognized here. People here in concise, still walk at the same speed and even run hurrying pass into their next appointment all in temperatures of over thirty five degrees celsius. However, I pity the children being exposed to such high temperatures. But adults here should know better and quickey ads it's summer. It's hot, yes, sadly people are dying. Maybe that's due to a lack of education or worse. These group activities are absolutely stupid and unnecessary in conditions that cause death or heatstroke summer is not the time to vigorously run around. Those are both good points. One thing that is very common here in Japan is that children high school students. Elementary school students are often out in the middle of the day. Competing in sports as if it was the spring or the fall, it's one of the things I've never understood about here, but is that what it's like back in your country? Do you go out there in the hot hot hot parts of the day and make the kids exercise? I don't know why don't you visit the story, let us know. But in the meantime, people take care of their. Well, our next story is about trade and finance now don't tune out right now and don't touch that dial because you might actually find this a little interesting, especially if you're a consumer Japan in the European Union, signed a landmark deal this week that will eliminate nearly all tariffs on products. They trade. This is an ambitious pack that runs counter to US president. Donald Trump's recent moves to hike tariffs on imports from many US trading partners. It covers a third of the global economy and markets more than six hundred million people. That is a lot of people EU and Japanese leaders didn't mention Trump by name, but they did little to hide what was on their minds. Basically highlighting how Europe and Japan have been pushed closer together by Trump's actions. Now, in nutshell, here's how this works. If you're wondering the FTA, the free trade agreement will bring lower prices in Japan for Europe. Paean winds cheese, pork, handbags pharmaceuticals, and things like that. All things that you may or may not have sitting on your desk right now. Japanese machinery, parts, tea and fish, those will become cheaper in Europe. The deal eliminates about ninety nine percent of the tariffs on Japanese goods sold to the EU about ninety four percent of the tariffs on European exports to Japan will be lifted and that will rise to about ninety nine percent in the future or so. They say Japan today readers though had some mixed feelings cycle fiscal. I think that's how you say it is a skeptic ninety. Nine percent for Japan, ninety four percent for the EU you watch nothing zero. Nil from the EU will change. You will still be paying extra want the best cheese. Pay more one, a nice Audi, pay up, handbags, pay up. Do you really think that Japan is just going to reduce prices? You watch an Audi r eight will still cost thirty percent. More to buy Japan than it does in the USA. I gotta say, I think cycle fiscal is a consumer and guess what? You know what if I want the best cheese, I will pay more so I'm not really sure I understand this person's comment. It may just be about their shopping list. Stranger lands take on it is that more nations signed trade agreements that entirely bypassed the US altogether. Trump wants claim that winning a trade war was easy. I think he once again, misspoke and meant to say losing not winning. Now, this one I totally agree with. I've been wondering why countries are not signing autonomous, bilateral trade deals with each other to avoid these tax hikes, tariffs coming out of the US under President Trump's watch lately. What do you think wanna use at the story on Japan today dot.

"On Japan today dot com and write down what you think. Our next story. There's really no other way to say it is Rudy tutti fresh fruit. It really is at a wholesale market in Kanazawa this week. A bunch of premium grapes fetched the price of one point, one million yen. That's about nine thousand seven hundred US dollars in the years. I auction just slightly lower than the record. One point one one million yen registered last year. Now this is not for a fine Clara. These are not super expensive wine grapes. These are these are regular eating grapes. The kind that you put in the fridge, popout and pop in your mouth there. Nothing special really about these grapes, but there's something special about why this happens in Japan. It's customary for sellers of produce to auction off the first crop of certain food products when they're available, and then they receive a higher than market value price on them. The products are then used for display their sold later at normal cost or served free to people or two as a token. Get people to come into their stores, visit supermarket chain operator, Yamanashi Shoji in cow prefecture is the group that purchase these latest ruby Roman grapes. Ruby Roman is a type of grape. It was developed by the cowo- prefectural government over a period of about fourteen years, and it's really well known for its high sugar content. And some of the grapes actually reads the size of golf balls. These are massive grapes according to a local agricultural cooperative Japan today readers, though they had real mixed feelings about this story, especially with so many people who are suffering due to the floods and landslides. We mentioned at the top of the show fact checker pulled no punches. If that money isn't going to charity, that's despicable. I kind of agree with them though. I, I like to think that probably a certain portion of this money is going to charities, especially with what's going on down south Mika says, put the word premium on any product in Japan and some Japanese believe in this crap gullible or just. Plain stupidity. Well, I'm not gonna put that onto Japanese people. You put the word premium on any product in any country, and people will buy it the first car off the lot that first Nike sneaker that comes out of the salt mines in China. You know people by premium stuff everywhere. By the way. This podcast is the premium Japan, this week podcast. So I'm just gonna leave it there..
