Posted in: Ghosn denies allegations against him: NHK See in context

Seems weird that he would break the laws related to the issuance of public securities but he does not seem to have broken any tax laws.

Who lies about their income and then pays taxes on it? Maybe that investigation will come later if he's found guilty?

Another FAIL by Japan. Are you really so sensitive? The best thing you could have done was ignore him.

Posted in: Abe calls N Korea's H-bomb test threat to Japan's security See in context

Although they may not say much, China can't be too thrilled about it. The explosion took place not too far from their border. It's not at all clear that NK has the ability to make an h-bomb small enough to fit in one of their missiles, although they arguably just got a bit closer to that.

If Japan can't beat Syria they certainly don't deserve to be in the World Cup.

The first hour was pretty embarrassing as they could not get it in the goal. They are crap!

Anything to keep the people's mind of the tanking stock market as well as general corruption of the ruling class.

When my Japanese company loses client data we are required to inform the client. How about the Japanese government? Even the USA's IRS informed taxpayers affected by a recent data leak.

Are they even going to bother to inform those whose info was leaked? I think Japan's revised privacy law requires it.

Sigh! Another example of childish foreigh policy supporting the view that nobody should trust Japanes politicians. Grow up!. Is this guy worthy of meeting the prime minister?! Pandering to special interest will only get you so far....

And that makes everything OK!? Typical example of false logic I see get used all the time. Education system here is good for math basic subject but there is no critical thinking.

Posted in: University student attacked, robbed in Utsunomiya See in context

I think this must be lost in translation. Please explain how one can threaten with a knife when holding someone in a "full nelson"? If one googles an image of full nelson, it is clear that it take two hands. Where was he holding the knife, between his legs? Perhaps it should say "half nelson" or "headlock".

Posted in: Imperial palace receives Fukushima rice at emperor's request See in context

If the Fukushima rice tests at less than 100 becquerels per kilo it's as safe as any Japan produce you're buying in the store because that is the national safety standard limit to be allowed to sell rice and vegetables.

I wonder what Mao would think of all the children of rich Politburo members running around Chinese cities. It's as if what he fought against came to be once again.

Forget about Bo Xilai, pollution, and all the politicians getting rich; we'll make you hate Japanese for an Island that they've controlled for over 100 years.

Posted in: Dozens flee Izu Oshima ahead of new typhoon See in context

Taj, Look at Google Maps again. Imeedeiately west and south of the Town office area is near where the landslide was, but further north, around the airport, is basically the flattest place on what is essentially a volcanic mountain sticking out of the ocean. I stand by my assessment as the north being the safest if you are weathering out the storm on the Island (and it actually turns out to be a bad storm). The wannabe cameraman everywhere must be annoying for the locals and rescuers trying to do their job. In a news clip I saw over the weekend there appeared to be more cameramen than there were evacuees at the shelter.

Posted in: Dozens flee Izu Oshima ahead of new typhoon See in context

Given how rough the ocean is at the moment, I think it would be safer just to evacuate to the north end of the Island where it's flat. It seems like a bit of an overreaction to leave unless you have a health condition that requires a constant power supply. Besides, I would want to be onsite to inspect my property after the warnings are called off.

Posted in: Abe outlines reform strategy; pledges to raise incomes by 3% See in context

Well if he achieves annual growth of 3% then raising th income should follow by default. (1+0.03)^10=1.34 45,000 * 1.34 = 60,300.

I should be noted that with inflation targeted at 2%, he is only talking about real growth of 1%, (3%-2%).
