Headhunters are as much negotiators as talent sourcers so I can see some of them surviving thank you very much! Regarding Translators and teachers, it's interesting that for the 2022 World Cup bid, Japan were pitching the availability of instant translation software to change your words through a handheld interface from one language to another. Pretty soon we will only need Teachers to teach us our own language unless we have some facscination with learning the 'old-fashioned way'.

That would be voicing an opinion.. Discrimination this, discrimation that, people are too afraid to say that anybody else' behaviour is wrong these days! The guy's maladjusted in more ways than one if he is knocking about with somebody less than half his age.

Posted in: What do you think of the Mainichi's decision to cease publishing its WaiWai tabloid tidbits section on its English online site following complaints that it portrays Japanese society in a negative ligh See in context

A shame indeed - that collumn was telling life as it really is. How can we trust the quality of their editorial without there being a balance and portrayal of what really goes on? The world, Japan included, has it's share of sordidity and squalor and I think it's a newspaper/news website's job to reflect this.

Just typical that Japan is the only country in the world to delay the release of the Indiana Jones movie. The movie distribution system here needs a huge overhaul. It's a complete and utter joke and surely not lost in the eyes of Japanese consumers and distribution companies alike. Don't they feel embarrassed to have such major stars coming here and the movies not even available for people to see at the time?

Posted in: What do you think of the new Japan Today design? See in context

People here are being too sychophantic. The new design is a complete and utter mess. A good homepage should be user friendly and easy to extract essential information from. The new design is far too cluttered and it is not possible anymore to scan the news and quickly decipher what is going on. I was going to write that the new format is an example of style over substance, but it doesn't even look very good. Very disappointing.
