Posted in: Europe hits Google with record $5 bil antitrust fine See in context

European bureaucrats out of touch with the majority of the World yet again. I guess they need to justify their lavish Salaries by being seen to do something even if it's not so smart

Posted in: Japan probing abuse of health insurance system by foreign residents See in context

For the example given, how was the applicant allowed to have dependents who were not living with him, be part of his insurance cover ? If the answer to that question is fixed, then the problem is partly resolved.

Posted in: SoftBank's Son says Japan is 'stupid' for not allowing ride-sharing See in context

I am the only non-Japanese within a small closed off street, they don't associate with one another as is done in the West. So any changes relating to sharing will probably require a cultural shift first.

Posted in: Nissan says exhaust tests were altered in latest scandal See in context

Well sadly for Nissan lovers, you don't have much choice, seems they've lied to you about the Emissions on their Fossil fueled cars and also on the mileage you can get with their Electric cars (and also how quickly you can recharge them too!). I won't buy Nissan.

Posted in: Nissan says exhaust tests were altered in latest scandal See in context

Seems Japan is just as corrupt as elsewhere, though unlike other places, just those who do it here, simply get off the hook with a bow and a tear and a promise not to do it again.

Posted in: ‘Jisa Biz’ campaign to ease overcrowding on Tokyo trains starts Monday See in context

The trains are much quieter at 5am, so why not move the start time to 6am ? The benefits being it's cooler in Summer, also in order to ease congestion in the evening companies can ask Employees to leave later thus benefits for all - employee wont need sunglasses as they will arrive in the Dark, and leave in the Dark, plus think of all the expensive electricity bills that they will be saving back home.

Posted in: Ex-head of parents' group gets life in prison for murder of 9-year-old Vietnamese girl See in context

As to the Cries for "Death!"... are we sure that this is the culprit ?

Do we really, "trust", the Police ?

Is the evidence 100% correct ?

If any of these questions could be answered "No" or "Maybe", then the Death Sentence is clearly out.

Posted in: Weapons of trade war: What might China have up its sleeve? See in context

The difference is China does not have a free market economy, and can live without it, so as Trump has isolated America from the rest of the World, it's the US that has the most to loose. China could effectively stop shipping stuff to the US for a few months, and see what happens next.

Typical bureaucratic nonsensical regulatory garbage that exists in many Countries - UK included.
