Double the minimum wage for temp workers. This way, employers will be forced to employ them as full time workers if the intention is for long term. If it is genuinely temporary needs, then the company would not mind paying a little extra. If the government will not accept this suggestion, the temp workers can always form a union to negotiate the terms and conditions. If it is true that current percentage of temp workers are as high as reported, then it is a force to be reckon with.

For once I salute the Nobel Prize Committee for making a good choice of honoring people whose invention or discovery that is truly revolutionary and benefits the society, not those frivolous theories that common people do understand nor discoveries that bring threat of total annihilation of mankind.

"with great power comes great responsibility". It is ridiculous that so much power should be entrusted to a leader who is not directly elected by the people. In other words, should anybody be given so much authority if he is not accountable to the people. What if he passed a law like the Edo period Shogun (who was not elected but have absolute legislative power) that mandated all people to kowtow to the imperial dog when it was taken out for a walk? The penalty for disobeying was death. What then can the people do, because the Prime Minister is not directly elected, and therefore cannot be kicked out by the people?

Prostitution is illegal in Japan, but pornography which in actuality the girls get paid for sex,meaning prostitution, is so blatantly publicized and made available in Japan. It goes to show the Japanese government practice double standard in enforcing the law by selecting who to prosecute and who not to prosecute. Are the law meant for the poor and powerless only? Since the government can condone pornography, why not legalize prostitution?
