Posted in: Do you think remote working, where possible, improves productivity, creativity and staff retention for a company? See in context

You save alot of time not having to goto work and can get things done quicker and more efficiently. It is a move that should have happened in Japan years ago, but now is an excellent time to do those home office upgrades. Also you can have more tax deductions having a home office. You can also automate some things that will save you some time.

-It is big business working from home now and there are specialists that can help you choose the right equipment and getting it to run right.

It is a game of "chance" which means after so many tries you should be able to win. If the machine is rigged at 0% then the arcade (Sega) can be fined and/or shut down. =The Sega attendee should be able to win it after a certain amount of tries -if not, they are in trouble.

There are pros at this that can win the PS4 or just about anything (see UFO Catcher on YouTube). This is Japan after all and people play this game all the time. If fact many rare items are only "sold" thru these games.

Posted in: Ex-Nissan boss Ghosn calls Renault/Nissan results pathetic See in context

The real issue at Nissan is the lack of quality long term. The marketing and looks of the vehicles are very good, but the quality of Infinity/Nissan is not as good as Honda or Toyota. Many Japanese cars do not go many miles so you don't notice the lack of quality as much. The engineers/managers could only turn their heads for so long. So the marketing leadership style of Ghosn does not match the leadership of Nissan Japan or its employees.

Posted in: Have you given up on 2020 because of the coronavirus and are now just looking ahead to 2021? See in context

2020 is a great year. Had the time to sell a bunch of things that have been sitting and I didn't really need. I always purchased physical metals (gold/silver) so those are up. Had to restructure a few assets to take advantage of Covid-19. Working from home more (like everyone else) so it seems I have more time. Trying to automate things more to gain more life time for myself that I am using to improve my health and happiness. May work on my pilots license as a way of social distancing while still being able to get out and travel. Thinking of things that I always wanted to do but previously passed on due to time constraints. Maybe new business opportunities while others are going thru their Covid adaptive phase(s). Updating computers to larger multiple screens 32"+ 4k so I can get more than my previous 34" ultrawide LG (3 pages of text to maybe 20). May try some online classes.

excited about these things:

RAV4 Prime and other electric hybrid vehicles bringing 40-70mpg due to the larger 15kwh batteries.

AMD multicore cpu/server chips (Ryzen etc)

Power of Siberia gas line (Gazprom)

Exciting solar and battery technology. +battery shortages.

Exercise machines with large 32" screens (Android O/S)

I don't video conference, but since now it is expected I will work on my set-up etc.

Posted in: Japan's COVID-19 app reaches 4 million downloads in first week See in context

What is the point of this App? There's no follow-up. Even if you know you are exposed, you cannot get testing or treatment. Until they update the guidelines to reflect the existence of this App, this is not helpful at all, only makes people worry.

The app isn't mean to prevent you from getting the virus

The app shows the current infection hot spots. So if known people with Covid are in your area quarantining, it will show that. If known Covid people are moving around it will also show that. I would assume your cell phone will be notified by text if you were in an area or cross paths with someone that was recently diagnosed and will ask you to come in for testing.

This system works very well in China/South Korea and warns when Covid is bad in your area and you have the ability to work around that. You are also being tracked/traced and that info can be helpful for future testing.

Example: You have a Dr appt. You check the app and notice that place has high Covid activity recently. = You reschedule your appt or go knowing that the Covid rate is high for this area. It also puts pressure for businesses and communities to work harder to combat this engineered virus.

You don't need to worry about that since your cellphone cannot get viruses (has inherited immunity from all viruses now and in the future).

Posted in: Japan's farming industry faces falling demand, labor shortage See in context

JeffreyKJune 18  05:03 pm JST

I've heard it being reported before that the lack of school meals has reduced demand for produce. This baffles me though - does this mean that those children aren't getting any meals at home instead?? At the same rate that school meal producers lost business sales quantities in grocery stores and supermarkets as well as their suppliers should have gone up.

If that really wasn't the case then this should be taken as a serious warning sign about poverty...

Japan Inc needs to step it up now and make sure people are eating and remaining healthy. The big commercial sales to schools, hotels, business are down due to C19. The food model has changed and Japan needs to change with it instead of just throwing the food away etc. =Food programs for young, old, and Alts having difficulty for the time being.

Posted in: Money-losing Mitsubishi Motors execs to take pay cuts See in context

The issues here are the lawsuits and the internal emails of trying to remove Ghosn for maybe years. =That should be very interesting.

Mitsubishi needs to get back into making vehicles that people want. Dated interior tech and hybrid compared to the competition. Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia (#5 brand) other markets they are still strong. 2020 is a tough year and this data really reflects 2019 = expect 2020 to be worse.

https://www.mitsubishi-motors.com/content/dam/com/ir_en/pdf/financial/2020/200519-4b.pdf

-compared to the competition a $241 million loss for the year is not bad. But if 2020 has a similar or more loss that is not good and the reason management is making the changes now to limit losses.

Montero for the US market may be interesting. Need to bring back the Lancer Evolution and the O.Z. Racing stuff. Solid trucks and diesels (Non-USA). Hybrids. Solar roofs and larger batteries. Innovative, flexible, adaptive stuff, but with solid reliability and safety.

++Fuso truck division was sold years ago.

+++Mitsubishi Zero is a very rare airplane worth more than the Corsair. =P38 territory in worthiness and even more rare.

++++4g63 and Mitsu diesels. =Good stuff, probably cannot make emissions anymore. = Need hybrids for these.

+++++4g64 Shout-out! For all the turbo adders out there keeping the tradition alive.

http://perezhilton.com/perezitos/2013-12-20-ivanka-trump-throwback-thursday-wollmanrink-with-ivana-trump

Ivanka Trump has been involved in politics since the Wollman (NYC-Central Park) ice rink. Without Ivanka's constant encouragement (pressure) and steadfast dedication most political pundits have concluded the rink would have been eliminated from Central Park. It was basically Donald's ingenious building and political/media wit and Ivanka Trump vs the NYC political elites and media. Ivanka won when no-one thought it could be done. The rink still stands and for many a center-piece of Central Park.

Huge difference between LNG (must be cooled) and CNG (just compressed). Those busses are most likely CNG. You can easily compress Natural Gas at home to get CNG also. (Japan generally does not have natural gas lines at home due to earthquakes etc)

Posted in: What is the worst experience you have had with an airline? See in context

It is sort of amazing with the planes being so reliable now that the passengers and staff are so unpredictable. If anything I would stack the advantage my way and get as many people I know on that plane trying to make the experience as predictable as possible.

I was on a plane (USA Midwest) where the seats were 2 side by side facing another 2 seats. Flight was good but one passenger (40's business woman) wanted to make everyone's life miserable. So it was an annoying 2 hr flight with every minute of her life being the most precious and precarious. You would think better seats would help -but it really does not and depends on the people in the seats.

With all the pat downs, body scans, limits on what you can take (shampoo, lotion etc) commercial flying has become miserable now and some people take great joy in that misery. = No thanks. Flying private has little of these problems.

Posted in: Video of passenger getting dragged off flight in Chicago sparks uproar See in context

So far this is costing United Airlines $800 million in value and US shareholders can/will also sue for loss of value.

This Dr could not miss this flight and didn't want the worry of trying to find another (over booked?) flight. Could have outright offered cash on the spot for another passenger to be bumped and explained his situation.

-He was bumped for 4 employees of another (affiliated?) airline = Not bumped for United Employees. =Probably a contract between United and others that they must accept these extra passengers.
