never mind the innocent victims. The courts always focus on the welfare of the perpetrator. The commission of murder and manslaughter have become common place in this Society to the extent that we focus on the perp and bow our heads to the victims .Judges and sentencing officials tend to come from the upper end of society and have no empathy for lowly victims

Japan has no future without foreign immigration. The key to survival is a pluralistic society. It needs blue-collar and white-collar immigrants to survive. It will revive it’s agrarian and industrial sectors while providing A revenue base for It’s aging society. Education and social interaction will overcome the nationalist and racists Elements.

This controversy is a direct result of Japan’s historical decision to censor true historical facts about it’s war time behavior from it’s school textbooks nationwide. We are finally moving in the right direction of achieving social justice and unadulterated education.

Posted in: Foreign casino operators go all in as they vie for Osaka license See in context

The Best Sites for the Three Casinos in Japan to Attract Foreign Patrons are:

Osaka, Fukuoka and Naha. Why?

Accessibility. The three Japanese Casino Cities have ocean ports to accommodate ocean liners and are in proximity to the Asian Casino market which includes Korea, China, Taiwan, Philippines, and Southeast Asian countries.

Lower Costs. Casino gamblers do not like to play in only one casino. Having all three casinos in relatively close proximity will allow travel companies to package all three locations on reduced costs. More visitors for each location will be the result.

Community Support. All three Japanese locations are generally in support of economic stimulation and job creation and are therefore more open minded and receptive of the gaming industry. If these casinos are successful in stimulating the local economies, Japan then can move forward to consider additional casino sites on its Eastern shores and areas. Tokyo, Yokohama and other major sites do not now have the community support and the costs to win the populace over will be too great and contentious.

Posted in: Kobe Steel shares dive as quality scandal spreads See in context

Mitsubishi, Nissan, Tepco, Takata, Kobe....When will it end???? Is this why Japanese corporate management exploits its workers by demanding record overtime working hours.......So the art of cheating can be perfected?

It's time for Japanese workers to stand up for better working conditions and pay. There is a major Japanese labor shortage, but there is no commensurate increase in wages and hours. Also, there has been no lifting of the corporate glass ceiling that keeps Japanese women from upward mobility. Why has corporate management purposely underutilized this educated and hard working class of female talent?

Unfortunately, Japan is not alone. China, Inc. has been exploiting consumers and workers for decades.

But the corporate model for predatory and fraudulent practices flourished in the U.S. in the 19th and 20th centuries. Now, disappointingly, under Donald Trump, American workers will lose their health care coverages, pay more taxes and will be relegated to work for dying industries like domestic oil production.

We are doomed to relive the ghosts of our past.

Posted in: Kobe Steel's data fabrication affects Toyota, M'bishi Regional Jet See in context

Japanese corporate culture has transcended from top quality control to cheat until caught. It isn't the assembly line workers but top management ordering the cheating down the line. This is further compounded by the ringisho managment system made famous by the indecisive response over the Fukushima nuclear melt down. For when a major scandal is discovered by corporate outsiders, these companies go into lock down for months. Never mind harming the general public or corporate customers, keeping the heads way down in kowtowing an apology seems to be the end goal. It's a cleansing ceremony intended to make a new start, but companies like Mitsubishi and Toshiba make it an annual ritual.

Posted in: Justin Thomas wins PGA Championship; Matsuyama 5th See in context

Matsuyama has a lot of talent. But to score better, I suggest he become fearless with his putting. He lags his putts too often. Also, it seems that his caddie is only there to carry his bag, to converse in his native tongue and to give him yardage to holes. Matsuyama needs a caddie who has knowledge about PGA courses and greens and to advise on club selection and targets. That advice can come only from an experienced PGA caddie. For example, if a PGA player joined the JPGA circuit in Japan, how do you think he would fare if he brought his PGA caddie to play the tour?

Good luck Matsuyama.

Posted in: S Korean court orders Mitsubishi Heavy Industries to pay former wartime slave workers See in context

90% of Japan's problems with its Asian neighbors is caused by the inability of the Japanese government to apologize and admit that it committed crimes against humanity. I am sure if the roles were reversed whereby China or Korea had kidnapped thousands of Japanese citizens who were forced to become slaves under inhumane conditions, the Japanese would be clamoring for sincere apologies and substantial compensation.

Watched Japan get walloped by USA. Japan has to play aggressive offense. 80% of their offensive plays consist of kicking the ball to the rear once they reach mid field. Watch how the Americans play offense. Always forward and always attacking. Japan's defensive offense is a losing strategy.

How did this lawyer with a questionable past and no academic nor technical background ever become

world affairs in the future because in a couple of decades it will have no human resources nor expertise to put forth.
