If you don't like this alcohol free restaurant. Then don't go. 

No, I probably won't. I just don't see the point - obviously tobacco smell is offensive to other people, but someone drinking a beer at another table? No one is making you drink alcohol, however much you hate it.

Kansai Electric concluded in a report of its internal probe released last Wednesday that the three former vice presidents did not breach internal rules and their behavior was not inappropriate.

Absolute joke and makes me sick!!

Watch women get upset because they can't use the toilet

Seriously, you don't have to do that extreme in order to see them get upset. Just look at them and most will shoot you an angry glance.

MO the Parents were not smart - I would not allow my Son/Daughter to have a "sleep-with" partner on site overnight until Married. 

Glad to see that you do not recognise your children as independent adults but rather slaves to you and archaic traditions.

Jeez people, the last time this happened was 30 years ago. Some of you are acting like they’re spending money to do this every couple years. Let Japan have its traditions like any other country.

Only very educated people know that Japanese Emperor has Chinese origin, thousand years history, the only living example of the old civilization. I wish the parade will demonstrate the knowledge, the source, the tradition of that special linkage.

mercury levels in those fish/plankton and waters havent got any less over the last 16yrs since the testing was done if anything theyre more polluted.

The cited paper specifically says the high levels were in toothed whales. Toothed whales eat food much higher on the food chain than do baleen whales, food that has itself concentrated mercury and thus toothed whales have high levels of mercury as do apex predator fish like tuna and swordfish. Baleen whales eat small prey, like plankton, which have low levels of mercury and thus baleen whales do not have anywhere near the levels of mercury seen in toothed whales.

This is the cited paper. It says that all except one sample of baleen whales were BELOW the permitted level.

On the other hand, T-Hg concentrations in all mystecete red meat samples except for one (0.01-0.54 microg/ wet g, n = 62) were below the permitted level of T-Hg, probably reflecting their lower trophic levels.

Chip Star - Odd that you don't use this logic to support every country that does things the world finds repugnant.

The "world" doesn't care about whales. The "world" has more important things to be concerned about. Only a small vocal group of animal-rights zealots, and eco-terrorists, are claiming that they speak for the "world".

America and its gun violence.

Ridiculous

zichi - They have had whale every year and those caught this year are the same whales caught every year.

Can they really catch the same whales every year?

Lived very near there for a couple of years however I was never attracted, its just a crossing. George Martin who was also involved with the Beatles open his own studio in Hampstead in a previous Dutch Church called AirStudio. Spend many years around there.

I've known a few people who've been to London to get their picture taken of them crossing this street. and it's been parodied many times.

At the end of Paul's 1985 hit 'Spies Like Us' video you see Dan Ackroyd, Chevy Chase and Paul crossing Abbey Rd. in the night time.

Squeeze had themselves doing this at a railroad crossing in the inside pic of a recent CD.

Paul himself walked a dog across Abbey Rd. on the cover of his 1993 'Paul Is Live' CD.

Shonen Knife has promoted this year's tour and their new CD with a picture of them walking Abbey Road carrying ice cream treats.

And more. The iconic cultural legacy is there. And so it goes.

Naruhito became emperor on May 1st. The enthronement needs to be planned just like the crowning of the queen in the UK happened about one year after the death of her father.

You mean the enthronement ceremony hasn't been done already? I thought that was all done in a Shinto shrine earlier this year. What if say Naruhito had died before this, would he even be officially considered an 'emperor' at all? Of course Akihito has abdicated. I don't get this, at all.

> If you don't like this alcohol free restaurant. Then don't go

Clear thinking by the above commenter. There are thousands of restaurants in Osaka. Don't like this one? Don't go.

KFC and Mcdonalds seem to do ok without serving booze, yet many of us would have no problem drinking a beer with a burger or chicken meal.
