Posted in: Former 7-Eleven store owner sues firm over contract termination See in context

...7/11 argument for terminating contract - there had been numerous customer complaints about his store.

Store owner may have a good chance to win the case since there is already a precedent of other stores doing the same shortened hours. To add, he has strong evidence - there is an actual labor shortage in JP. The facts are on his side vs. 7/11 weak argument.

Also on Thursday, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the cabinet would decide on Friday on spending 15.3 billion yen from the budget reserve to respond to the coronavirus

Under-estimating an epidemic - set your priorities straight Abe, this decision should've been done on the first on-set of the virus in Japan.

You brought this upon yourself Nissan. What could've been an internal issue with Ghosn, should've been resolved within. As a customer, how can I trust that you can take care of me, when you cant take care of yourself?

Posted in: Japan torn over whether to test all on cruise ship for coronavirus See in context

This incident exposed quite a lot of things that worried me while living in Japan :

That Japan health system is not well prepared to handle contagion outbreaks -from what it implies , the entire nation has only but a few thousand test kits and we don't have exact numbers of health centers and health care workers to respond.

At this point, I would have believed they have already mapped a contingency plan to treat all those on board the ship. Built or modified a space outside to test and treat all of them. The wait-and-see attitude in this dire situation is alarming. 

China , Hongkong are at the front of battle field - why not copy what they are doing right??

Japan can ask for help - I hope pride don't get in the way of solving this crisis.

The shrine was on its last days of its restoration, they were working on it , there were people preparing for an upcoming festival on the grounds - there were activities inside, outside the shrine before the fire. How can there be no possible lead on how the fire started?? Where are the insurance inspectors? or wait... don't tell me the building is not insured?

A passport is the property of the government of the country it represents.  You'd think Japan knows and respects that - well, surprise!

Marshall SaintsToday 10:10 am JSTThe conditions required by the new system are so outrageous I cannot figure out if the people who came up with them are really that clueless about ordinary human reality or just intended the thing to fail all along.

 I have observed this to be true, where Japanese policies are too intricate and complex, one will eventually give up - know that it was designed that way.

Just have one and be good at it.

I think Japan should do away with any Visa where they cannot effectively control it -  the "Training" visa  was and still abused by JP companies as cheap source of labor, the Student visa is abused by JP "language schools" and foreign students as cover up for part time employment. Now they introduce another Working Visa without proper framework and ignoring how they failed on the existing two.

One has to consider the influence of the female biological clock over all these 5 attributes:

Intelligence and Fashion sense might be hard to fake, but it can also come with age.

But kindness, maturity and sweetness (1.2,3) - those can be manipulated , especially when needed.

Marinade. The text veers between marinade and marinate. Just choose one and stick with it.

Marinade is a noun, Marinate is a verb.

After reading the above links to accidents with these carts, it looks like they have had a few bumps and scrapes, 50 if I recall in 11 months, but lets put this into some sort of perspective...

Ratio and proportion would help your analysis... The number of cars and other vehicles that pass through the area over the number of accidents from these vehicles could easily be more than that of the carts simply because there are more of them  - vs -  the number of carts that drive the same route and its ratio of accidents.

No one "gave" the U.S. the power it held at the end of WWII. It naturally filled a military and economic vacuum with Europe and much of Asia in physical ruin and unable to feed themselves. 

Please provide your reference. That is a flat out superhero claim . Nations occupied by the US were never given a chance to decide for itself - because the US believes they are incapable, just like how it sees other nations that need to be "saved" from military and economic ruin. Fast forward now, China at least enters the world stage building, not bombing.

The airline industry has mastered this craft - and their cancellation policy is based on numbers - not ethnicity. Data Analytics can show the rate of cancellations on a given number of bookings on any given day - if they are sly, (they can even use IP address) to see where the booking came from. Point is, the technology is there to fix this issue without being racist. At 200billion yen losses a year they could have created an IT team to provide solutions.

The vocational School Visa loophole is also the underlying issue here, much like the Trainee Visa , it is just being used as source of cheap labor.

From a consumer's perspective - If Nissan can risk throwing all this $#%T on the fan, then they also take the same risks to their products and services, at which point, they lose customers.  Their stock value will plummet and drive the business down - That is not what businessmen do. There must be something more happening here - or it is just plain incompetent leadership.

If Nagayo hit the man or made a counter offensive move - would her professional license be affected?  Being that her action was a defensive response and a means to stop a crime? This a question, not a statement.

Not from the US,  clueless on what gun ownership means, but I can see that the interpretation of it is so diverse, cluttered and links to so many ends. If there is an institution that supposedly represents gun ownership, isn't that entity responsible for crimes committed from the cause they promote?

This sort of action is borne out of depression and mindset. The social services, health care, even the media should have done more ( if there are any) to address all this family-member killings with an information drive or support program.
