 - Organ and Blood donation - 

Are you registered to donate your organs if you pass away?

If you aren't, can you tell me why not?

How about blood donation? I donate blood at every possible opportunity!

Other than possible medical issues/limitations, why don't you donate blood? Its easy, it doesn't hurt, and you could help someone in need.

What kinds of issues are there surrounding the idea of blood and organ donation in Japan?

What do you know about the issue that started in 1968 when Mr. Wada performed Japan's first heart surgery?

What other issues could prevent Japanese people from wanting to donate their organs?

 

 

Lets talk about that.

 - G-7 and the planned Ise Shrine Tour - 

In the news recently, it has been revealed that there will be a tour of the Ise Grand Shrine. Abe  will be joined by world leaders from The US, England, France, Canada, Germany and Italy.

Some think that this is a good idea, and that the fact that world leaders will visit this area could help boost tourism, however, other people think the tour, may also include an area of the shrine that is not usually open to the public, which may seem like religion is being brought into politics. If this is true, Article 20 of the Constitution states, "The state is prohibited from granting privileges or political authority to a religion..."

 

Do you think this tour is a bad idea?

Do you think having so many world leaders in one place is a wise idea?

Could it add an extra incentive for our neighbours North Korea to consider doing something very silly(attack)?

 

Lets talk about that.

Discussion week 6 - Friday the 13th and Sunday the 15th of May

 - Discussion Week 6 -

 

- Friday the 13th of May

 - Fukushima - 

Recently, we talked about the earthquake that happened 5 years ago.

Even now, the damaged nuclear reactor comes up in the news very often.

Apparently, even the 'ice walls' that should have been keeping the contaminated water from leaking, is not actually water-tight.

Will the nuclear reactor ever be fixed?

What effects from the meltdown still exist now?

How long will it take till the residents of that area are able to live there again, and what is being done for them now?

  

Lets talk about that

 

- Sunday the 15th of May

 - Drones/Privacy - 

In the news for the last couple of years, Drones have been appearing more and more, with all kinds of uses and applications.

Mostly though, they have cameras attached and are able to take photos or video that you would normally need a helicopter for.

But of course, this also means that they can take videos and photos of things and places that you normally would want to keep private.

 

What do you think about Drones and other upcoming technology?

I also recently saw a coat hook in the news. Wait, why did I mention a coat hook?Because the coat hook actually contained a camera, and was placed in a women's bathroom. Cameras and other small devices are so compact and so easy to hide these days, are you worried about being watched?

Link to the coat hook camera article: http://en.rocketnews24.com/2016/04/30/tweet-about-hidden-camera-hooks-in-japanese-restrooms-sparks-anger-online/

 

Lets talk about that.

Discussion week 5 - Friday the 6th and Sunday the 8th of May

 - Discussion Week 5 -

 

- Friday the 6th of May

 - Whaling - 

Japan is one of the last nations in the world to insist on continuing with a whaling program.

 

Do you think Japan needs whale meat these days anymore?

I know it's traditional, and Japan has been whaling for many many years, but even so, If over-fishing causes some whales to go extinct, what will Japan do then?

What do you think is right or wrong, should Japan continue it's whaling program?

  

Lets talk about that

 

- Sunday the 8th of May

 - Censorship - 

A short while ago, you might have heard about a female Japanese artist who created a kayak in the shape of her own genitals. Censorship in Japan dictates that genitals can not be produced or distributed via media/art in Japan.

So theres a legal battle going on as the artist claims that her kayak is an artwork, and not a kind of pornographic material.

Why is this kind of censorship so strongly enforced in Japan, and furthermore, why does it exist at all?

In western countries we have art that depicts genitals, a very famous example is the Statue of David. Why is that O.K? But In Japan it is not?

Also in Japan, there is a penis Festival why is that considered acceptable?

 

Lets talk about that.
