You better die in USA army war and be celebrated very happily in a public holiday than survive and be ostracized.

The car business is going through a massive transformation from an internal combustion engine to a computer basically. And this is going very fast.

I bet most of the car companies will die soon if they cannot make U-turn fast, even big German luxury ones.

Company ego and job retention will be the most damaging factor.

Trump is the sales reps of the USA armement industry lobby. Saudi Arabia and so on!

Just that!

And if needed, add a bit of oil on sleeping fire (Iran) and sales go up again.

This program is a slavery scam to get cheap labor.

Limited visa time

No family grouping

No commitment for permanent residence

No protection about xenophobia

But these guys must adapt! What a joke!

I work in a Japanese company currently outside of Japan. The Japanese just stay among themselves unable to socialise with the rest of the company, keep talking Japanese (basically not able to manage English) but still very much arrogant that Japan is the best. But the others must adapt.........

Posted in: Lawyer for Ghosn slams 'outrageous' rules on seeing wife See in context

@ksteer

No doubt that the judge has taken his decision within the Japanese law.

The question I have is whether he has taken his decision within the spirit of the law or not. He has got a lot of discretionary power based on "feeling".

Basically is he taking his decision in full impartiality? Could it be political manoeuvres on the backstage?

Are there any way to challenge a perceived impartial and unfair decision?

Just wondering why the health risks related to hair dying is not mentioned. Especially on young kids.

@girl_in_tokyo

I believe everyone can agree with your point re adult male attitude vs. female, sexist, misogynistic and so on.

This article is about young teens testing their boundaries, not premeditated and under group pressure.

It is gross but please do not over engineered this specific example.

You are raising the exact right point: it is done because of the NORM!

Has anyone asked these kids if they enjoy it?

Privacy has to be respected.

School should not organize teens to go naked in a hot spring bath. Period!

Arbitration is a good move to resolve this political issue. It should be under the UN umbrella.

At the first place I believe going to hot spring bath with teens - or even any age - is a mistake. This is a major body transformation time and I would not be surprised that in both boys and girls sides many of them did not feel comfortable bathing naked even within their male or female peers or even adults (not clear if it was private or not). Forcing these kids to do that is more problematic than the peeping itself IMHO.

Just teens testing boundaries ffs (re authority/rules/girls etc), nothing more, nothing less. 

That is the way I see it too. They got cough, then some kind of useful punishment to make them understand WHY they should not have done it.

And more important: learn not to follow/support a group blindly, because we clearly have a group effect in this particular case. Pressure to do it was most likely high for the ones who did not want to.

Ugly comments here with regard to the elderlies.

@Balcklabel

You are perfectly right. This is why Trump imposes tariffs on Monday with XYZ countries and remove them on Wednesday with XZT countries. And rechange his mind on Friday with ZUP countries and so on...

Credibility, you say....?

Obviously the point is not to feed people with waste food 2 days before "Best Before"

The point is to direct the raw food (not crappy industrial "food") to the right place timely.

I would really like to see Trump hidden Inc. game playing at the stock exchange. Every and any of his Twits make the market up or down. He was using that already while playing with dad's money. But now he has 10 times - if not 100 times - more impact.

A compulsive cheater to feed his unmesurable ego.

Posted in: Trump lifts tariffs on Mexico, Canada; delays auto tariffs See in context

Trump's tactic (or nevrose) is to confuse everyone and even himself, that none can recall who did what by when and trumpetting all the credit of the successes on him. Nothing about long term vision or strategy.

Spoiled kid behaviour.

Official Nissan communication:

But in the end, it was a "unanimous" decision to keep Saikawa in his job, Ihara said.

According to Reuters:

However, a source close to Senard said there had been no vote earlier this week, unanimous or otherwise, on Saikawa’s reappointment as CEO.

LOL!

@ Masswipe

Saikawa did not work for the business the whole last year (he somewhat admitted it). He was just focus on combatting the Renault merger and getting Ghosn arrested.

Then making car and selling car are different businesses. The ones blaming Ghosn for his love of mundane circus cannot understand he was selling cars during this time by building and maintaining network with highly influential people.

Posted in: G-20 agriculture ministers agree to boost productivity See in context

Reducing food wastes in the rich countries would solve the food "shortage" for at least 30 years.

Reducing meat intake (I am not vegetarian) by let's say 50% would almost fix it for good.

There is enough food. The distribution or misusage is the problem.

Basically as everything in our overconsumption era.

Technology is one thing, land configuration is another.

Japan, with mountains, curves and tunnels any slight km/h increase is exponentially more expensive (not mentioning earthquake prevention costs).

That means the gain vs. the cost is not economically viable.
