Australia is little America should have a star on the flag. Perhaps a yellow one. What possible benifit came come from being involed in the Middle East. How's that never ending war on terror going? Might be a lesson there. Stupid politicians.

Fantastic news, Salerys are so bad that now having two jobs is the norm. While companies make huge profits, and still demand unpaid overtime? Oh wait there's a tax increase coming that should be a real positive thing for workers. What's that Abe? You want more children....good luck with that. Can't have much of a relationship let alone a family working two jobs to pay for your salery.

Posted in: Faced with global downturn fears, Japan Inc avoids raising bonuses: poll See in context

No bonus, ok never in 20 years had one, but a pay rise now that would be good. Over 0.02% would be good. Over 2% would be betters so to nullify the tax rise that's coming. Politicians yearly get a pay rise yet my pay yearly shrinks and my taxes go up not sure who is working for who's benifit here certainly no one is working for my benifit.

I'm backing out the two of you are obviously correct and the down votes are just a mass Miss informed group. Might be that I and those who down voted you who have been living in Japan for decades just don't understand as you do. Perhaps in another decade we can all agree.

Perhaps the thumbs down are because both of you are wrong. Has that idea entered your head? You try using drugs at work, at home, do you really think you would get a suspended sentance? I will concede that jail time served is probably enough. The court decisions are skitso this person gets 5 years but this person gets a suspended sentance. Don't know why as there is no justifiable explanation from the judge, it's a bizarre criminal system, but you can defend it in the face of facts. That's your right. Untill arrested.

Strangerland, Japan apparently has very strick drug laws as you know. First offence or not it would appear that this individual was using not just at home but at work too!

I don't agree with the law in this matter and I am mearly pointing out the as a Career Beauracrat Justice is dispensed with one eye closed. Taking ¥10 from a temple gets you year in prison. Getting waisted at work that being overseeing children's education gets a suspended sentance. Personally something is not right.

If your going to use drugs get a job as a Beauracrat, it's a form of insurance that exempts you from punishment. Of course you could be smart enough not get busted. So much for Japan's harsh drug penalties.

Culpability definatly and his offspring know it too thus their pacifist outlook. They don't want anyone to die in their name. But again Abe and his cohorts are actually trying to kill youth in the name of the emporer.

You can choose your job, cold calling people to demand money is probably not the first choice. If it is you have a problem. Does it pay more than a convenience store? Personally I switch languages if one of them suddenly knocks on my door. The job is so stupid can only guess they also are stupid.

It's not a complex issue, he was criminally involed in the mass murder of millions mass rape of millions he really should have been hung. He was more than complicate and riding a white horse sorry just shortens the rope he should have dangled from.

Yep, he was sorry after the fact. But his name was used to justify mass rape, brutal treatment of POWS. And a systematic killing of anyone not Japanese, I'd feel remorseful too had these actions been done in my name.

The pixilated handcuffs. Like porn I guess you are left to imagin what they could be? The man child has some serious issues, being spoilt being probably no1. He is Intilteled to some time out in a small space. And a vigorous spanking.

What is it with Afghanistan, why do their youth blow up so quickly. If it's not a drone strike then it's a overdressed dude imploding. Weddings are obviously not a go to event in Afghanistan.

Very unusual outcome. Killing service staff over a sandwich? Hope they, and they will get him. He is a certified nut case. Hope the rest of his life involves prison staff showing him his meal then whipping it away.

Classic, can make the technology but can't use the technology. Tape recorder, Fax are still staples in business. These new fangalled things like email and cloud are just beyond comprehension for Japanese. Hell the government designated head of cyber security boasts that he doesn't use a computer and had no idea what a thumb drive is.

I'm sure a Japanese Beauracrat will whip out his Ivory hanko, stamp the paper knowing full well there are enough loopholes to ensure that for scientific purposes only and satisfying the greed of his masters the trade will continue and for appearance only Japan is cracking down.

Posted in: Can Tokyo's efficient rail system handle Olympic strain? See in context

So everyone agreed Tokoyo train system is on the cusp of failure. Adding tourists is just going to break it. As the last governor of Tokyo made a pledge, promise that it's OK, and then retire, wandering the streets with no recollection of what he did. Now that's Japan at it's finest. You want a marathon...dozo. Abe San might join, after being squashed into a train carriage for hours. But as he himself said Fukashima is under control and Tokyo is ready for the Olympics in 2090.

I love the Olymipcs, even a year out its putting the spotlight onto glaringly obvious problems that usually are a shoulder shrug from locals. But having to have people push you into an already confined space should have in itself told those that be that things arnt working.

Deaths from heat, in Japan it's very important to do as is required from social norms.

i live in a rural area and everyday old farmers wearing several layers start working at lunch time when the sun is brutal. I've asked them why now? Its traditional they reply.

Cant fault that thinking.

Im now on first name basis with the local ambulance and fire departments, that's my tradition now.
