Have you been to Lebanon ?

Not required to know about it!

and how is Lebanon in bad shape and how does it impact Ghosn life. 

I suggest reading news about Lebanon it is freely available and you don't need to go there to read it.

Ok, Japan is in good shape does that mean I and everybody living here is

in good shape ?

Not all some need to exercise!!

================

You cannot selectively pick bad news about Lebanon on the net and base your comparison

on there are tons of good news on the net as well that you have conveniently ignored because it is contrary to your stereotyped thinking and because there are bad news doesn't mean they are true, there are tons of bad news about Japan as well doesn't mean Japan is bad based on the bad stuff on the net. You said Lebanon was in bad shape , did you mean Lebanon was in bad shape because of lack of exercise then why try to deflect by saying "some need to exercise". Bad shape meant as in economy, as in livelihood of the citizens.

Japan like the rest of the world is opening back slowly. Trying to keep people safe which you like to complain about in the how many cases for today section. No win with the Anti-Japan crowd.

If they are trying to keep people safe then the rules should be applicable to everybody but that isn't the case the following are presently taking place in Japan this weekend, Japan- Australia rugby match, the world gymnastic championship in Fukuoka and Zozo championship a PGA event is taking place in Narashino Chiba. I don't think any of the foreign teams or players under went the mandatory 2 week quarantine which makes the suspension of visas to foreign students (meanwhile those on monbusho scholarship are allowed in) nothing but a show

Hope he is enjoying life in Lebanon. That place is way worse than a nice jail in Japan right now.

Have you been to Lebanon and have been incarcerated in a nice jail in Japan to qualify to make

the comparison ? Because a country is rich doesn't mean it's citizen are rich and living happily.

It nothing but stereotyped and brainwashed thing.

While I don’t like the way prosecutors handled his case or how he was detained for such a lengthy time prior to indictment, the evidence is pretty clear that he did the things he is accused of.

He did arrange to hide most of his income from Nissan shareholders.

He did engage in some seriously self interested transactions using Nissan money to benefit himself at the company’s expense.

I don’t really see him having a strong claim to public redemption

Could you please share the evidence you are privy to. I don't remember the case going to court

and evidence presented and contested.

If he thinks he is innocent, show the evidence, and fight with your energy. Why did he need to run away illegally in the first place while on bail ? Do as the Japanese do when in Japan.

How do you find evidence and prove your innocence with your hands tied, limitations and nothing to

work with. "Do as the Japanese do in Japan" that is accept they are guilty, bow and apologize even if

they are innocent.

Someone will make a movie about this saga and Ghosn can consult. Other than that there’s little he can do, except living in a comfortable retirement,

Lebanon is in a bad shape, hope he can do some charity!!!

If Ghosn wants to restore his reputation, he should come back to Japan and fight like a man and clear his name in court.

So you naively belief that you can win a match again someone who is the rulemaker, player and referee.

Wish you luck when you happen to encounter such a situation in life.

It was because they failed to audit the filings and financial information properly, not that the "corporation" was involved. This was a scheme cooked up by Ghosn and Kelly.

So Ghosn and Kelly prepared all the documents and did the filings both in Japan and the

U.S. But how could only the two of them do it in Japan with little or no Japanese knowledge ? That is

the simple question that you should be asking yourself.

Let me add to your list

You go to NK you follow their rules and laws.

Doesn't mean you will not end up behind bars for drummed up charges

and doesn't mean because you are detained you committed the crimes

you are being accused of.

truth is, the money and power went to his head. not a crime in itself, but he lost all friends within the company

I guess you did an extensive interview in the company to arrive at this conclusion.

Chosing your own version of events or narrative to believe in is not a crime in itself.

Sure, the LDP are a bunch of bozos, but hey, the "main opposition" clowns didn't do so well that last time they were up to bat. Nothing makes me think they'll do any better this time either.

Did do so well relative to what ? The LDP, even South Korea and a whole bunch of lesser countries have overtaken the 3rd largest economy in hourly pay rate and per capita income all under the rein of the LDP

Yeah, that's what the LDP friendly keeps on telling us but what they conveniently don't tell us is that the bureaucrats sabotaged their policies in anger to the dpj trying to rein on bureaucratic wasteful spending,

Both Kono and Noda said the country needs to nurture and support people engaged in farming.

"We need to make agriculture a profitable business," Kishida said.

What you need to do foster competition years of protectionism and massive subsidy hasn't led to an increase in food self sufficiency or reduction in prices, prices have increased uncontrollable food is completely out of reach of the general population. Recently, poor quality Hokkaido pumpkin is the only pumpkin you see in supermarkets, pumpkins from mexico and miconesia magically vanished overnight from supermarket shelves, well that is making agriculture a profitable for a select few at the expense of the vast majority

As for top soccer coach Jurgen Klopp, who manages Premier League team Liverpool, he has described her as the “talent of the century.”

The hype machine is in high gear. Talent of the century winning one GS, Those before her than won more than one GS were never talent of the century. Klopp should stick to soccer and making Liverpool better.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino believes staging more tournaments would increase opportunities and enthusiasm in most of the 211 member countries, many of which never qualify to play at the World Cup.

If that be the case, then do away with the continental qualifers and hold a world cup with all 211 countries taking part. Of course we it isn't the case and FIFA like the corrupt IOC is interested in making more money,

Nothing is gonna change....Period.

J-inc is what matters and everything will be done to maximize their profits while

the average Taro and Hanako get poorer and poorer and those older enough reminisce

on the good old days that their salaries increased exponentially and they could own a home and offer their children decent education. There are thousands of households especially single mother households with kids whose annual incomes is not up to 2M yen who are hurting and cannot afford a decent meal, their situation is so bad that no one wants to admit let alone talk about it.

The Resident

Continued good news. Once again, on target for my 11th October removal of most restrictions.

The number of coronavirus-related deaths reported nationwide was 89.

The families of the 89 that left us because of the virus are celebrating as well.

What is really happening, it seems like the number of deaths is instead increasing with an

increase in vaccination.

For the first time nationwide, a teen was reported to have died in Osaka.

The Nikkei stock index rose for the eighth consecutive day on Wednesday to end at a nearly six-month high above the 30,000 threshold, lifted by hopes for a normalization of pandemic-hit economic activities under a new government.

Who in their right senses is expecting any thing new from an LDP government. First of all, there will be no change in the people formulating policy "The Bureaucrats" so no changes at all. It will always be the same J-inc first before J-people.

What many posters are forgetting is that now these vaccines are free and funded by our taxes and it is not going to be like that until Covid-19 is laid to rest, eventually the government will start demanding money just like the flu vaccine and that will result in many people not taking the vaccine not because they are anti vaxxers but because of the cost. Some governments do certain things not because they like it but because other governments are doing it and don't want to look bad.

In May, DHC deleted Yoshida's message from the Japanese website amid mounting criticism both in South Korea and Japan.

It is rather unfortunate as usual, that this article is lacking in details like whether DHC is a public listed company or not and if it is, what are the shareholders saying and whether the said Yoshida is still CEO and if he is what reprimand did he get for great damage he caused the company image, brand image and sales.

No other country could have put this all together but Japan! It was difficult, it was controversial, it was polarizing, but if it had been a different country, it would have been the worst ever. Luckily it was in Japan.

Not surprised at all, anything that gives a "Feel Good" or moment of pride is welcome even if it is at the expense of the general public. Why so much obsession with how the country is viewed abroad or comparison with other countries even when comparison is obviously not possible. Is the country so insecure of itself or is there an underlying inferiority complex ?

Be yourself Japan and stop worrying so much about how the world views you.
