**"Foreigners with little or no language-teaching skills or experience were able to make a comfortable living teaching in Japan at the height of the 1980s economic boom and beyond"

How many of these foreigners were actually trained/certified as english teachers in there native country, A tiny minority at the best. As one poster commented on a similar article, "English teaching is a billion dollar industry in japan, the party does not go on forever".Speaking a language is one thing, specialization in the language is all together a different story.

You dont have to have a the papers to be a good english Teaching... It helps if you arent a good teacher...

Posted in: Parents of 4 children in bus swept away by tsunami sue kindergarten See in context

As for the parents how do they dare to put a "price/value" on their loved/lost ones, how low can you get? If I lost my son there is NO amount that would compensate me nor can replace him.

Of course no amount can replace a son or daughter.. everyone knows that..... but if someone is at fault why should they just walk away scott free.. Money is a way to make them pay for their life changing bad decision... next time they could save lives... If they messed up they should pay somehow... and if families get money...why not.. they just lost a kid so why shouldnt their life be a little easier without any money problems. Imagine losing a kid and your house has gone and no money.... At least they can rebuild with less pressure...

Posted in: Strong earthquake rattles tsunami-weary Japan See in context

Japanese officials predicted the quake could generate tsunami of up to 20 inches (50 centimeters), but the initial waves were only about 4 inches (10 centimeters).

Why is this reported in inches and miles then brackets in KM. Nothing to do with the USA so why report in their old out dated system.... Isnt the whole world metric now.. and what I dont understand is why is the US still on this old system.... Anyway back to the earthquake.. glad there was not much damage in Japan.... they don't need that now.....

Yeah they should be made an Example.... Just the scammers.. Not the people selling products at a higher price... Look at Travel agents.. Holiday time prices double...

Posted in: Women file suit to keep their surnames after they marry See in context

The 113-year-old law requires married couples to choose just one surname for the man and woman to share, and custom means it’s usually the man’s.

People can choose the womens surname if you want.. so whats the fuss about. If these strong willed woman get married they can have their last name as the surname.

My mother once knew a woman who hated her name. "Nora Bone" then she finally got married to a guy with the last name "Round" Poor lady couldnt get away from it. Imagine if she kept both names. heheh
