Despite their swelling national bank accounts, China, India, South Africa and others say they are still battling poverty and that tens of millions of their people lack electricity or running water.

Sounds like the South Bronx and lots of other places in America...

Haruka is a perfect spokes person for KFC. She is very cute and lovely to look at. Maybe I will go get a chicken wing.

He did not break any written laws, so it is kind of weird. Just spank him and tell him to be a good boy or take away his toys.

Wow, maybe he nicked a few green houses and a couple of hotels. Or perhaps he got the Luxury tax fine and paid 10% rather than what he really owed. God bless america

Maybe although cruel, if they trawled some more they might have found the owner, and could have brought the owner back for a proper funeral. I would think lots of bodies are still being found. RIP

That is why I would not use G-mail or anything SONY.

The Chinese are obviously much better at this stuff than the Japanese are. Why is JP IT so poor?

“In the name of job security, they demand a say in running the company, they want to be paid for work that no longer exists due to new-generation aircraft, they want to retain outdated work practices,” he told the meeting.

What work? Auto Passport and check in readers? Those things never work right especially for international travel.

New generation air craft require higher maintenance and tech savvy staff.

Posted in: China limits 'overly entertaining' TV programming See in context

The Chinese are thinking wrong. They can control the masses much better by having them sit in front of the boob tube like zombies watching stupid game shows and other junk. Why would they want to put on educational shows and teach the masses?

Posted in: EU bail-out fund chief says 'no deal' with China; Japan visit next See in context

“If the Chinese, who have 60% of global reserves, decide to invest in the euro instead of the dollar, why refuse?” said the French president.

Won't happen as the Euro is a baby currency, plus China would be using dollars from its reserves to buy the Euro.

China will buy up America instead. Would buy up Japan, but there is nothing left here to buy.

Put simply, the old farmers are not going to give up their one acre plots. How do I know?

Because they have stopped day light savings time each and every time it is brought up. Farmers are the only people in the world that do not need a clock. Sun and seasons are all that count.

Great article, but you must get past the one acre farm families and Ozawa will not let that happen.

Posted in: Adopting English as workplace language in Japan has its downside See in context

Kokugo is the language origin Ben. It does not use Kana but all kanji. Grammatically it is a bear like Hebrew.

I think the the boss of Rakuten should send out head hunters to the graduating classes of the international schools here and make some good deals, including putting them through the university. There is no better place in the world to find many many fluent Japanese speakers and native English speakers, or near native, plus the other languages they know. I had fellow students that often spoke three languages fluently, and some even more especially the Indian students.

I would send teams to those schools. Thousands graduate every year.

Global watcher. Numbers wrong.

10% of 5% would be nice. They want the 5% to go to 10%. And yes they will tax food and meds, and my flu shot I got this morning.

I know of at least one person on this site that went to international schools in Japan. Same graduating class. Well the Japanese language teachers at our school were just as bad as the language teachers in the Japanese school system. They just wanted us to memorize Kanji. So pathetically boring. Most of us spoke and read ok, but we wanted to fix our Janglish which can confuse any foreigner trying to speak to us. Any others at international schools here and graduated ?
