Posted in: Japan formally asks U.S. to extradite men accused of helping Ghosn flee See in context

Ghosn failed as a CEO. He failed as a leader of a company, Nissan famous for its high quality cars, diminish and deteriorated under his leadership, the list of laws this guy broke its the reason why he ran away hiding inside a box.

Simply put Mr. Ghosn was very successful at Nissan for over 20 years. He was profiled period. He was the savior and responsible for turning around Nissan when the car firm was on the verge of bankruptcy. He was smart and savvy and left for a wise reason.

Simply put you can be a dual citizen in Japan and America until you reach 21 years, after that age, you have to choose the citizenship you want to keep to make it legal.

Posted in: Pompeo says 'enormous evidence' virus came from Wuhan lab See in context

Mr. Pompeo is wrong. A coronavirus leak from a lab would be extremely unlikely and there's no evidence of this according to a American researcher who worked with a Wuhan virology lab. I've read that the high-security lab has no record of the novel coronavirus' genome, and follows strict safety measures. They say that it's far more likely that the virus spilled naturally from bats, jumping to humans via an intermediary animal host. Sadly a persistent circulation of the lab-leak theory could only impact future scientific cooperation and information between America and China. Go do the research, find and spread the truth.

This professor needs treatment. Sadly most people who have a fetish never seek treatment from professionals. Be grateful if you and your loved ones or friends don't suffer with mental disorder or any other mental illness and have compassion on those that do. The ignorance about mental illnesses leads to unfair and factless based stigmas being placed upon the mentally ill. There are still many people with uninformed perceptions about mental illness and other psychological disorders and still need to be educated about it.

The Japanese bow to one another as a greeting, a parting gesture, a way of expressing humility, respect, or apology. The Japanese often bowl every time they meet someone even if they have already seen that person several times that day. Bows are calibrated to show different levels of respect.

Posted in: What do you think will replace smartphones in the future? See in context

Smartphones interface will be replaced by wearable and artificial intelligence that will take over common activities such as searching the net, getting travel guidance and as personal assistants. I also think the next generation of devices will mostly interface with verbally or via projected holograms as opposed to today's screens. So a tiny device could project a hologram you interact with or it will be capable of understanding language and intent as well or maybe better than a human being so you can get it to do what you want. I think phones that understand you and your goals, agenda, beliefs strongly enough that they can accurately predict your needs before you are aware of them will be big in the next decade. Instead of thinking of what you want to google, your phone will know it before you do and tell you unsolicited. But I'm not sure if non-invasive mind reading will be realistic in the next 10 years.

Posted in: Foreigners in Japan face significant levels of discrimination, survey shows See in context

Unfortunately discrimination is a problem throughout the world in different countries, culture and communities. In other words everywhere you look, you see differences in wealth, power and status. Some groups have higher status and greater privilege than others and in this unequal social system, there is often unfair treatment directed against certain individuals or social groups. Discrimination can be based on many different characteristics like age, gender, weight, ethnicity, religion, politics etc. It's so sad that some human beings have pre-formed negative judgment or attitude and this leads people to view certain individuals or groups as inferior.

Posted in: Japanese tourists in flu masks frighten British supermarket shoppers See in context

Sometimes I throw on the mask to cover my face when I don't feel like wearing makeup. But the polite Japanese who must be out about with a cold or flu is right to think a surgical mask might protect strangers from picking up a pathogen. In other words we do it perhaps out of politeness because it's rude spreading your cold to strangers. After all the masks were originally designed to protect patients from coughs and sneezes of a surgeon. So if you're sick wearing a mask can be a good idea.

The rule of thumb is don't worry or fear over every breach but you also can't afford to get complacent or content. In other words how much to worry and what not to depends on what type of personal information or data you learn have been compromised.

Posted in: What's your stance on the death penalty? See in context

@ browny1

The fact is being wrongfully charged, indicted, convicted, and imprisoned can happen to anybody. The ways this can happen are countless, and despite the system's best efforts, there are just too many ways the system can possibly get it wrong. Unfortunately ours is a world in which justice is accidental, and innocence no protection.

Posted in: Dog bite incidents in Japan number in the thousands every year See in context

The fact is there is no one most dangerous breed of dog. All dogs, from the smallest to the largest and everything in between can pose a danger under the right circumstances. Also dog bites statistics are not really statistics, and they do not give an accurate picture of dogs that bite. The numbers will show that dogs from popular large breeds are a problem. That's because big dogs can physically do more damage if they bite, and any popular breed has more individuals that could bite. Dogs from small breeds also bite and are capable of causing severe injury.

Posted in: What's your stance on the death penalty? See in context

I'm not for or against capital punishment. It's a matter that should be decided by the prescribed processes of civil law. In other words capital punishment is an appropriate penalty for murder, but that penalty is proper only after the offender has been found guilty in a lawful public trial by constitutionally authorized civil authorities.

Posted in: If a job applicant is not sure how to dress for an interview, what should he or she do? See in context

Your best bet is to do your homework. Research the company before the interview to get a feel for the culture. Figure out what the standard dress code would be for the role and company to which you're interviewing. Your appearance is a reflection of your level of professionalism, how seriously you're taking the opportunity and your level of respect for the interviewer.

Forgiveness involves changing a response to a wrongdoer or anything that happens as a result of the wrong from a negative or positive response. Forgiveness doesn't mean you have to feel positive towards that person. It's just that the negative feelings are now gone. So not all forgiveness are equal and while your character may be forgiving in one aspect, they aren't necessarily in another.

Posted in: Would legalizing drugs such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin drive the crime out of the business? See in context


Some experts in Portugal say that decriminalization has not worked. That is wasn't a blessing and did not help. Unfortunately since decriminalization in Portugal there has been an increase in every single drug like cannabis, cocaine and even in HIV. Drugs are still illegal in Portugal and dealers and trafficker are still sent to jail. There are always two sides to a story.

In Qatar black market of alcohol has increased 40 percent and black market of alcohol flourishes in countries like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brunei and India. There are also other countries in Africa, Middle East and South Asia. So black market of alcohol does exist especially in countries that prohibit for religious reason.

Posted in: Would legalizing drugs such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin drive the crime out of the business? See in context

The truth in a nut shell is that drugs produce purchase related crimes, drug induced crime, and black market crimes. So to the extent that legalizing drugs would make them cheaper it would create many new addicts and the incidence of purchase-related crime and drug-related crime would increase. History proves that if there were any regulations or taxes of any sort placed upon the legalized drugs, the black market crime would continue. History also proves that if you place a tariff on imported drugs be it legal or illegal black markets will continue to flourish unabated. Thus legalizing drugs not only does not decrease criminal behavior, it almost certainly would spur its increase.

Posted in: How do Japanese people feel about kissing in public? See in context

To kiss or not kiss remains an ambivalent question where different layers of meaning disguise any straightforward attitude to the gesture of kissing. So taking a closer look establishes that in communication, nothing is straightforward as it seems, however culturally determined as it may be, culture, as such, is in constant flux and human interaction, therefore, is continuously changing and adapting. Thus the only thing we can is to pay close attention to our surroundings whenever we are, and be prepared to kiss or not.

Posted in: Chinese soccer fans cheer curbs on 'ridiculous' spending See in context

Many people might wish to believe that sports is governed by higher ideals than money, the old adage you get what you pay for rings truer in many athletic disciplines than other areas of life. So it's no surprise that teams paying the most get the most success and all things being equal, sportsmen, like any other workers, are attracted to positions with the best benefits. It's an obvious fact that money talks in sports and the more money a team spends on a player's salary at the top level, the greater the chance of winning titles and championships.

Take charge of your own health now instead of handling it over to the drug companies. Just locate non-drug alternatives to your health challenges and research information to help you understand more about how you can improve your health without any drugs or surgery though simple lifestyle modifications. I believe there are basic tenets of optimal health that have always remained permanent truth, regardless of what modern science comes up with next period.

There is no such thing as a perfect railroad system but I feel it is very good in terms of speed, cleanliness, punctuality and service. In other words it's very efficient like France, Austria, and Swiss trains. However all railroad systems have some weaknesses. In the end their are many other railroad system throughout the world that are pretty good.
