Posted in: Nissan's new CEO reaffirms alliance, promises revival See in context

The Nissan management has spend the last 18 months with politics, powers truggles, intrigues petty jealousies and trying to built a case to pin all the problems on one person, Ghosn, who built the brand into a serious competitor in the first place and saved it from bankruptcy. I have some serious doubts that this team can be molded into an efficient and visionary team to built the cars for the future.

Withdrawing support for an art exhibition, in other words censorship, certainly doesn't contribute to "mutual understanding and friendship".

How does any of this make sense? She's been in Japan since April of 2017, got hired as an interpreter, and can hardly speak Japanese?

Posted in: IOC Tokyo Olympic marathon edict should give pause to other cities See in context

Not to defend the corrupt IOC but the Japanese side should blame themselves. With dozens of heat related deaths during that period every summer by people not even doing sports, Tokyo falsely advertised in the bidding for the Olympic that the period between July 24 and Aug 9 "*provides an ideal climate for athletes to perform at their best" with "many days of mild and sunny weather." *

The organizational 'planning' of the Tokyo Olympics is developping into a much more exciting spectator sport than the games themselves.

Posted in: Defiant Koike confronts IOC over moving Olympic marathon See in context

A while ago it was reported that:

*In the city's bidding document to win the Games, Tokyo said the competition period between July 24 and Aug 9, followed by Paralympic Games, *"provides an ideal climate for athletes to perform at their best" with "many days of mild and sunny weather."

So now, after false pretenses, fraud essentially, Koike is obstinate and reckless to milk political capital out of what was a sham in the first place.

Just because you may not agree, the proof is in their popularity.

Somebody is declaring corporate junk food as fresh, nutritious, and satisfying to the senses. The lowest denominator sure works, and yes right, it is profitable.

Posted in: Int'l labor union wants Tokyo Olympic venue inspection, worker interviews See in context

Japan has the most construction, and and quickest and most safety focused (and highest quality) construction operations on the planet.

Do you have any evidence to support your claim, especially the "most safety focused" part of it?

Posted in: No kidding: Japanese airlines offer seat maps to avoid bawling babies See in context

Old problem badly solved. Budget airlines AirAsia has a "Quiet Zone" in the front of the plane for a modest extra fee since at least 8 years. I fly them regularly for work assignments for that reason. "Quiet Zone" is a much better name and solution, not only excluding passengers with babies, which of course causes controversy. Problem solved without fuss.

I'm against Brexit and don't like Johnson, but he certainly has a point. Jeremy Corbyn is a coward sitting on the fence since 3 years. He is not a leader. Throw him out first and things may move on.

Part of the problem lies in the fact that power lines in Japan are largely above ground.

Posted in: Saudi oil attacks came from southwest Iran, U.S. official says, raising tensions See in context

Over the past few decades, Saudi Arabia has been America’s worst nightmare. Not Russia, not China, not Iran, not North Korea. All of them are frankly pipsqueaks compared to the damage Saudi Arabia has done to American interests.

Very well put. With that ruthless bone-saw-prince in charge I wouldn't be surprised if the Saudi's blew up the facilities themselves. It's a win-win situation. They will bring the US aboard for a war with Iran and the oil price goes up.

In the city's bidding document to win the Games, Tokyo said the competition period between July 24 and Aug 9, followed by Paralympic Games, "provides an ideal climate for athletes to perform at their best" with "many days of mild and sunny weather."

This is fraudulent bidding. Blatant cheating before the games even start.

Posted in: Japan-S Korea dispute puts U.S. in bad position: Trump See in context

None of the players in these sandbox games look good. They are behaving like selfrighous spoiled brats who lack statesmanship, dignity and responsibility = response-ability, the ability to respond rationally and instead blame each other and the world for their lack of maturity caused by lack of real experience in their sheltered self-indulgent lives. With these kind of 'leaders' the future looks bleak.
