With stronger Japanese yen it is obvious to Japanese firms to think that now is the time to go on a buying spree. US authorities are definitely concerned and hence it is obvious to hit that brake as their reflex action. If yen continues to grow, sooner or later authorities will have to put a cap (if its not already in place) on number of take overs per nation/anum. National security concerns are just eye wash.

Sometimes if you don’t give an inch, you’ll wind up in court.

Oh I like this phrase above.

"If you don't give an inch, you'll get a pinch."

"If you don't give an inch, lawyers will take a bite."

Any more ideas?

@Probie

What the station did wasn't against the law.

Sooner or later it will be.

No one could possibly know how the victim would react to such pranks. She could have had pre-existing medical condition. This does not mean that she is to be blamed.You could kill a diabetic by overdosing with sugary drink. Response to stimuli...

Posted in: Australian radio station to give $500,000 to nurse's family See in context

Oh please don't waste my time playing this blame game. The underlying fact remains unaltered, that a precious life was lost. Serious laws must be created to take down this prank industry. Scamsters and pranksters work alike fooling their victims. So why leave pranksters above the law?

One must not be able to escape merely by paying $500,000 and keep it under the wrap. Take it to the court if its already not. Only then this prank business like "MTV pranked" etc could be stopped.

Posted in: Norovirus outbreak in Osaka infects 48, claiming 2 lives See in context

That virus infected me and my family too (I live in Tokyo). First my kid, then my wife, then my kid again and finally me. I lost a couple of kilos (good for me). Especially not good for babies and toddlers at all. Washing hands, mouth and almost anything does not help at all. Neither does wearing masks. Hope the authorities pinpoint the outbreak source.

Good luck! Stay fit!

Posted in: Horror movies recommended to scare away summer heat See in context

Practically any movie watched in air conditioned theatres could keep you cool for atleast a couple of hours. One could then have lunch at some restaurant sitting right under the aircon. Then head to cool-off@book-off and try and read some books and again choose a perfect location under the aircon. Finally, try to window shop in a dept. store. Finally tired of doing nothing? No worries, it's time for a cool dinner in a cool restaurant. Ah, last but not the least, ice-cream at ice cream parlour will definitely cool off. Is it too early to head back home? Oh don't worry, circle once in Yamanote line. Now that you are so cool, please head back home and maybe watch horror movies listed above (just for courtesy).

Posted in: India's Maruti Suzuki fires 500 workers over riot See in context

@basroil

Riots are solution to nothing. No one needs them. The point I am putting forward is that Suzuki management needs to do some introspection here. Riots just dont happen suddenly. It's triggered and always is a by product of something. Who employed uneducated wild animals in the first place? Fire 500 wild animals in the work force, but before that fire 50 monster gozillas in the management.

@the-grouch

What the heck are they doing in India? or any other country for that matter...

Its business plain and simple. They are taping the second most populated market, now with spending power. Can you even dream of pulling out, bringing jobs back etc. One thing you must remember that if they are there in India or any country for that matter, they are in for profits. No point otherwise isn't it? Suzuki mangement seems to lack the understanding on how to recruit and compensate their work forces in that plant. This what is "unbelievable". The riots are just the by product.

Posted in: Woman sits on, kills infant son See in context

Police said that Takashima had visited a child consultation center three times since last December because she believed her son’s mental development was slower than average.

The ideal age of delivering a healthy baby is before a woman turns 30. Furthermore, having common sense of not smoking and drinking while pregnant is crucial. Some fools in this country think it is stylish. Who suffers in the end?

That's right! One can use it to find where mutley the mutt burried his bone. Or maybe, what's on the other side of the black hole.

Posted in: Concerns grow over children using tablet computers See in context

Just remember this quote: Anything in excess is harmful to health. So the key here is to limit access to these devices. iPad for babies is a wonderful idea as it introduces next generation computing at early stages. The day is not far when we oldies get ridiculed for using notebook PC with keyboards and mouses.

This is just the begining, TEPCO will first try to recover Fukushima costs from corporates and eventually from you and me. By doing this TEPCO wants you and me to responsibily pay for Fukushima mess.

Sell off your ASSets, TEPCO!!. Say "sayonara" to your bonuses and reduce your salaries. Do not beg in front of your customers.

The bridge has been nicknamed the “dinosaur bridge” by Japanese media because of its unusual shape. It looks like two dinosaurs facing off.

Naming it as TGB48 would have been better.
