Posted in: What's wrong with Japanese education? See in context

The problem are the teachers. To be a teacher one needs to take on a leadership role. Most can't lead. 2. The system that gives parents the right to keep their mentally troubled child in regular classes with the normal kids. English or anyanguage can't be taught in a once a week style. It must be on a daily basis. Kids need a real break between the end of year and the beg of the next. Not just 2 weeks.

Posted in: Why does the existence of AKB48 bother so many readers of Japan Today (judging from the comments on the discussion board)? See in context

I hardly ever notice them. I know a few catchy songs that I liked before I even knew it was by them. Aita katta was one. I also hardly ever notice articles on them on JT. Perhaps it's psychological. When someone hates something they see or hear more of it. But when someone is indifferent, they hardly notice. Point, haters, stop hating. Otherwise, you get stuck in your own negative reality. One analogy that could explain my mess. When I go shopping for a car, or when I buy one, I start seeing that car everywhere I go. I never noticed how many people drive this car until I bought one or were interested in one. My senses become more heightened.

We are gonna hear these kind of stories like 911, London subway, Spain, etc every few years until Israel leaves the Pails alone, and the Americans leave the black gold alone. This will never happen so I'm sure something bigger than 911 would come. The solution is so simple. But greed by Israel and America will not allow for peace in the world.

Posted in: School bullying survey scrapped due to student concerns See in context

The problem should be fixed at the root. The majority of parents world wide are clueless in teaching their kids manners. So are the real teachers at school. Kids are being let down at home and at schools. Ethics/manner subjects should be compulsory from Elementary, junior and high school, just like music or art class is. These classes are currently offered in Japan at schools for severly troubled kids. Ive seen the changes. it does work. why not offer these subjects at reg schools?

where are the donburis such as sukiya,yoshinoya, matsuya.. u can easily have a set for 500 or less!! 100 yen sushi is a scam, u end up orfering 10 or more plates because of thw small portions and being unsatisfied wirh the taste. for 300 yen more, u can have amazing sushi, large portions and because so delicious dont need more than 6 plates.

Posted in: Sharp to replace top executive amid losses See in context

they bleed red ink because they are stubborn and tooo patient. In business, patience is a virtue does not apply. they are finding this out the hard way. But im sure they will adjust their attitudes especially when the old geezers retire for good or die. I say another 15-20 years and we will be living in a very different Japan. add another 15 years to that and maybe japan could be a big player again.

zichi and nama, creative thinking is not taught in schools in Japan and therefore is very very difficult for them to problem solve. the 2nd biggest problem is bureaucracy. so even if there was one out of a million dude thinking outside of the box, bureaucracy does not allow such behavior.
