Posted in: Liam Neeson says there is 'witch hunt' in Hollywood over sex allegations See in context

This is a difficult one. People like Weinstein and Cosby have abused their position and taken advantage of many woman. That's terrible. I have no sympathy for them whatsoever. I think what Liam Neeson is talking about is times when you might compliment your female colleague's hairstyle for example. Depending on how she thinks about you, they might say thank you and carry on with their life or it might be considered harassment. Apparently, technically, it is harassment according to a human resources expert I was talking to recently.

Posted in: Japan likely to tolerate smoking at restaurants after LDP's resistance See in context

I remember in New Zealand when they brought in no smoking laws, they did it really well. Rather than target restaurants or bars, they said no smoking in work places . Of course there are some people who work in restaurants and bars so you couldn't (and still can't) smoke in those establishments and because of that the bars didn't really have a chance to complain.

Posted in: South Africa beats Japan to qualify for Olympic hockey See in context

The South Africans had already qualified for the Olympics through the continental route but the South African Olympic Committee had said that the competition wasn't strong enough so they had to qualify again. Talk about doing it the hard way. It was good to see a full ground in Gifu.

Posted in: It’s time to get rid of sound trucks See in context

The recycle guys driving around with their loud speakers is very much like cold-calling. It can be annoying but on occasions it will cause the customer to take action. I know that I have given them a few pieces of furniture over the years just because they happened to drive past. I wouldn't have done anything about if they didn't. I do agree that 8am on a Sunday is a little bit too much.

I would like to see England, Australia, Japan and New Zealand. Many kiwis would like to see that. I think Japan and New Zealand will be in the same pot so maybe not.
