Japan sumo champion Harumafuji charged with assault

[blah…]

Harumafuji's assault on fellow Mongolian Takanoiwa happened while they were out drinking with other wrestlers in a bar in the western city of Tottori in October.

The grand champion is reported to have been angered that his countryman was checking his phone while being given advice. The latter was admitted to hospital with concussion and a fractured skull.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-42502080

The young ones don't know their place anymore. :roll:


I don't much follow Sumo these days, but this story has been impossible to avoid because it's been all over the news.

Harumafuji is out of Sumo, even though he was a yokozuna. But there have been secondary scandals:

Sumo body looks to demote stablemaster Takanohana over Harumafuji scandal

Takanohana is a former yokozuna and also one of the most popular sumo wrestlers of all time in Japan.

The Japan Sumo Association on Thursday recommended that sumo elder Takanohana be removed from his post as director, asking that he be demoted over his role in the assault scandal that led to the retirement of grand champion Harumafuji.

A decision on Takanohana’s punishment was postponed once again the same day, despite the JSA’s attempts to shake off the scandal that has seen the image of the ancient sport again tarnished, and is expected to be finalized after the Jan. 4 board of councilors meeting.

The JSA plans to take punitive action over Takanohana’s failure to promptly report the incident, in which Takanoiwa — a wrestler from his stable— was beaten by fellow Mongolian Harumafuji during a regional tour in late October.

Takanohana, 45, is likely to be demoted two ranks within the organization, leaving him at the board member level.

He had also been criticized within sumo circles for his refusal to cooperate with the investigation by the JSA crisis management panel until he made himself available for an interview last Monday.

The punishment also reflects his decision to not allow the association to interview Takanoiwa until Dec. 18.

Instead, he filed a report on the assault with local police in the city of Tottori days after the incident, which took place at a bar in the city on the night of Oct. 25.

Harumafuji ended his 17-year career in November after admitting to the assault. Takanoiwa, who was a rank-and-file top flight maegashira wrestler, had to sit out the entire 15-day Kyushu tournament due to his injuries and has been demoted to the second-tier division for the New Year tourney in January.

In early December Tottori police referred Harumafuji to prosecutors, recommending he be indicted for striking Takanoiwa with his bare hands and a karaoke machine remote control and inflicting a head injury that required stitches.

On Thursday, a summary indictment was filed against Harumafuji for assaulting Takanoiwa, sources close to the matter said.

Harumafuji had been referred to prosecutors on suspicion of injuring Takanoiwa.

On Nov. 29, weeks after the scandal surfaced, Harumafuji announced his retirement, bringing an end to his career.

Based on a report by its crisis management panel, the JSA penalized yokozuna Hakuho and Kakuryu, who were present at the scene of the bar fight, with pay cuts for failing to intervene and stop the altercation. Sumo elder Isegahama, stablemaster of Harumafuji, resigned from the JSA board.

Takanohana, whose real name is Koji Hanada, is known for helping sumo gain popularity during much of his active wrestling career, along with his elder brother Wakanohana, in the 1990s through the early 2000s.

Takanohana earned 22 tournament victories, sixth on the all-time list, while setting a number of records including becoming the youngest wrestler to win a top-division title at 19 years and five months. He retired in 2003.

Japanese invention lets you share your baby’s bowel movements online with the push of a button

The Unko Button is a palm-sized box that records your baby’s bowel movements at the touch of a button, instantly sharing the announcement through popular messaging app Line with the members of the chat group you’ve designated to receive the news.

The name of the Unko Button is slightly misleading, as the box actually has two buttons on it, one to record bowel movements and one for urination. The developers say that the Unko Button is great for busy parents who want to track their infant’s digestive functions, but don’t have the time to stop and record each poop or pee expulsion. In addition to Line notifications, the Unko Button records, in an online app, the exact date and time of the button press, whether your baby pooed or peed, and even lets you write memos regarding color, consistency, and the child’s mood.

Are we doomed as a species already? (If it's not a hoax, of course.)

There seems to be a "thing" in mainstream manga and anime--I defer to Anax on "Loli-hentai"--for curry.

Image

That particular character insists her students learn to cook it and takes yearly pilgrimages to India. Male and female characters like their curry. I think it is because the spice is so different from Japanese Original food. Not as bad a English food--the Japanese Original have wasabi. And KFC.

I digress.

The Japanese love to change the Japanese Originals to give their own takes on them. One nice thing about RocketNews is they review how transplanted 'murican franchises like Starbucks and even McDonalds offer some interesting takes.

@ Anax: bingo!

The pink curry is called "Pink Karei". Its colour comes from red beet.
[…]
The blue curry is called "Slime curry". The Slime is from the video game "Dragon Quest" (Onegai kaeru team featured the Blue Slime meat bun in the past too.). Blue colour is from "Blue No.1 (aka Brilliant Blue FCF)" […]

Is there a Japanese "curry mythology", mysterious West and all that?

I'm thinking of:

Fair point, although borscht will have a more vibrant color.

First Sumo, now kayaking.

https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20180109_80/

A Japanese kayak racer who drugged a rival at a national championship event has been banned from competing for 8 years.

Yasuhiro Suzuki, 32, was penalized after he admitted he drugged a fellow competitor at the competition in Ishikawa prefecture last September.

His disqualification by the Japan Anti-Doping Agency was announced by the Japan Canoe Federation on Tuesday.

Federation officials said Suzuki put a banned muscle-strengthening substance into a drink belonging to Seiji Komatsu.

Komatsu drank the beverage and tested positive in a doping test after the competition. But he denied taking drugs, prompting the federation to investigate.

What a fucking ass (Logan Paul of course, not Yuta, Yuta is cool). The very definition of The Ugly American acting like an ass in another country.
If ever there was a jerk whose rude behavior merited an ass kicking, that is it.

Never watched him before, no interest in starting now. I did see the headlines about his video but didn't really bother to read the whole story. Really obnoxious.

Same here on his videos--the Cunt Paul Logan.

Per what Yuta shows, this guy is basically the personification of a "douche-bag." Add a spray tan and he could have been cast in Jersey Shore. Every culture has them and secretly hopes they end up disemboweled, cannibalized, and what is left made into quality footwear.

As for having his channel shut down, I prefer his exposure over censorship. Unfortunately, douche bags tend to attract other douche bags so I am not sure he will lose anything.

I hope I am wrong.
