Posted in: Starbucks founder Schultz says company needs to refocus on coffee as sales struggle See in context

How about not doing non-customer centric moves such as overcharging customers for drinks and cakes that aren’t worth that much. And not making such moves as not offering anything but tall sized drinks inside train stations. I stopped ordering Starbucks when I travel because of that.

The mobile app is great already. So adding stuff like being able to put your name on the order is an annoying extra step. People just want to get their coffee or drinks with minimum fuss and at speed without loss in quality.

If it’s a trudelt peaceful protest that is fine.

If they are harassing any students, then arrest the harassers away. These people are poison.

Posted in: Foreign minister says Japan to 'take lead' in addressing Gaza crisis See in context

Come on…..Japan is a great country in many aspects. But let’s face it, they should not get involved in this. They are not equipped or knowledgeable enough….It’s actually more annoying when politicians do these gimmicky announcements for their own pride with no plan on how it may actually be done. And they are giving themselves a pay rise……completely undeserved.

Finally good. Together Japan and Korea can help make a better Asia. The only people that drum up the past to stoke tensions between Japan and Kora are not doing it for the people but for their own personal gains.

Posted in: Refugee law deportation changes empower Japan gov't amid distrust See in context

Rather than spouting that Japan is seeking to block legitimate claims for asylum, it must be more about making sure dodgy claims not get through. It’s up to the Japanese how they would like protect their borders. Would it not be better to examine, cases where Japan do grant asylum and cases where they don’t and really see if they are being fair. Just saying the numbers they grant asylum to is low compared to western countries is a poor reason because it could just mean those countries are giving asylum to people who don’t really need it, which is a problem. Anyway who in their right mind would seek asylum in Japan…….that’s strange in itself, especially since people know how strict it is here, how insular it is towards foreigners and how hard it is to get to in the first place.

So many promotions over more capable men just because of inclusion diversity policies. Which is wrong. Similarly seen the opposite as well.

The fact that there are no anti gay marriage protests prove that generally don’t mind. However, once the LGBT community start pushing the pronoun agenda, hope people come out in force against it. That stuff is toxic.

Good! Why should locals have to pay so much more. Japan is already over crowded so this is welcome to control the hoards and reduce the rif raf. Those who are complaining and don’t want to come. Please don’t.

Posted in: Kishida's son rebuked for party photos at official residence See in context

I hate it when officials spend money for private things but surely the immediate family of the leader of the country can be afforded some protection when going sightseeing etc. On saying that if it’s clear abuse, come down on him hard, but isn’t it just a father trying to give his son the exposure for a political career. However, if that son does many inappropriate things and is saved and later things he can get away with it…..by all means come down on the little brat fast…..

If a high percentage of a population are getting infected and dying. And numbers coming out are suspicious, and the country is crying unfair treatment……Definitely passengers from there need to be tested pre and post arrival and follow the quarantine rules the world has had to go through…..A lesson in how to make people hate you as a nation. But maybe that’s the goal.

This is along side an article that companies plan to hire more new grads. So basically, they won’t increase salaries but what they will do is get rid of higher paid employees and bring in new grads so they can say they will be increasing salaries moving forward and because it will make them look good because they’re helping bring up a new generation. meanwhile the upper management for making the decisions that have turned Japanese companies to the dumps are enjoying their benefits at the top.
