After Chernobyl they had hunting squads to kill all cats, dogs and livestock because they were all contaminated by drinking water, eating contaminated food and etc. Putting all the livestock down now is the only thing to do, we can't eat the meat or the eggs. Moot point really, can't understand why you need the owners request. Tepco will have to cough up.

Close down Pachinko and Slot parlours, introduce daylight saving's and cool biz initiatives, all dept stores and supermarkets should open from 1pm-9pm. Its currently 10am-6pm at Atre and others but this puts more people on the train at rush hour. Trains between 10am and 5pm should run between 50-75%, possibly hard to do for the Ginza line but initiative needs to be taken. 22 wards of Tokyo don't suffer the Kaku Teeden but maybe this should be implemented from 12am - 4am, this promotes people to get out the office and get home early, this will save power all across Tokyo from 24hr combinis, Yoshinoya, Mc Donalds etc. Possibly implement or restrict operting hours to 6am-12am each day. Electrified advertisements, announcements and etc turned off.

@limboonJapan, Sounds like the NZ school system. Choose what you want to do and be good at it. I think that is the best way forward and concentrate on what interests the student so that they get enjoyment out of learning.

I always make sure I get on last. Best way to stay safe. You back in, put your hands above the door and push. Very simple and I find you create enough space for two people.

I have been a recruiter for six years. Interact daily with Presidents who manage 600 million dollar operations here in Japan. 80% of my time is spent dealing with WW VP's or Japan CM's on their priority positions. The other painful 20% is going through HR. In 6 years I have had only 2 offers not signed. I have helped people realise their goals, whether it be responsibility, title or salary expectations. Over the course of recruiting experience I have developed many long lasting friendships with candidates who I successfully placed and did not place. An Eg of how I changed a guys life. He worked like a dog from 9am to 11am everyday at his Japanese company. His salary was 8.5m and I got him into a CM role of a U.S. start up here in Japan and increased his salary to 21.5m. (Which by the way is market average)He now has a 2nd child, bought a house, and finishes around 7pm most days. Needless to say he is now my friend. Training is important, most company's are sink or swim, I started at Easter Worst Consulting for 5 years and clients quickly realize its the consultant not the firm they work with and in most cases you only get one chance to maintain that relationship. Now as for the comment recruiters are 1 step up the food chain from ALT's. In most cases that is true, people ridicule me because of my English teaching background at first in Japan, but they cannot imagine how I can out bill, out consult and over deliver them because they feel empowered by their business experience or their MBA. Truth is most of these people are doomed to fail because they think its below them and therefore do not give 100%, in most cases its these people who ruin for the rest of us. The money is good, but in general at my first firm 1 in 5 made a bonus. Only the dedicated make it.It took me 18 months to achieve a bonus. The revolving door mentality in firms is the issue. Only longevity and stability stop recruiters from trying to make a fast buck, this must come from the management. If it's, Bill, Bill, Bill. People cut corners and service drops, resumes get sloppy and recruiters don't meet the candidate before sending the resume. Clients meet off spec candidates, recruiter-client relationships decline and the vicious cycle begins until all brand image and credibility is gone.

Recruiters aren't all bad. The good ones don't even tell you they are a recruiter when you meet them. Hope this sheds a bit more light on this topic.
