Posted in: Japan worried that Toyota's problems could hurt U.S. ties See in context

Toyota - often recognized as the leader on TQM - Total Quality Management, and the Lean Six Sigma process has now bitten the dust. Too much reliance on cutting costs, etc.

This all reminds me of the rhetoric preceding the build-up in Vietnam. I thought a lesson was learned there. Guess McChrystal wasn't in class when Vietnam was discussed.

Japan passport doesn't matter. Baby will have dual-passport until she becomes of age and picks one.

Asian women are "smaller framed" but when they reached middle age it's expansion time. After children, being content, etc. It's life.

Posted in: Building a barrier-free society See in context

As far as in the U.S. in Hawaii, there is no "grandfathering" for retro fitting for ADA. There's this one lawyer there that goes around looking for violations and sues to get the retrofit. The courts there alway find for ADA access. And for the lawyer he always is getting his fees and a good living in the process.

Posted in: USB Lock Cap See in context

cwhite is correct. Why bother with a lock cap on a USB device? It's usually in your possesion anyway. Be like my workplace and block any use of USB memory on the network unless authorized and cleared. My own PC doesn't need it as I am the only one that uses it and only with my own USBs. It's the "public" computers you gotta worry about.

¥12,000 payout? Nothing in comparison to the $600 the U.S. gave last year.

Posted in: Japan wants anti-whalers barred from Australian, NZ and Chile ports See in context

Hey, why aren't the Japanese whalers getting the whales in their own waters? Lots of news releases about whale watching tours in southern Okinawa. Whales aplentiful! But will the Japanese take the whales from their own waters first? "NO, let's take everyone ele's first!"

Posted in: Ask why: American states seek efficiency via Japanese way See in context

Lean Six Sigma. Born in the USA. Perfected by Toyota in Japan. But look what's happening to Toyota now? All the streamlining was fine when exports where going out, but now?

Posted in: United Airlines launches Premier Line fast track service See in context

Yeah, but the lounge has comfortable seating and free drinks! Great place to spend the 4-1/2 hour layover waiting for the flight to Hawaii. No need to spend $5 per beer on the concourse. And United still has two free checked baggage on international flights. So does ANA on flights connecting to international flights.

The lounge at Narita is well worth it. Even if it costs 10,000 miles to upgrade to Busuness Class. Free snacks, drinks, WiFi and comfort from the masses outside. And the seats in Business are great.

The US Army will bury him in a desk job somewhere until his out. The end of his career in the Army. Don't think he has enough time to retire either.
