Posted in: Nissan CEO says staff feels 'dismay' at Ghosn scandal See in context

@coskuri

That is such a gross disservice to Ghosn considering how he helped rebuild Nissan I can't believe it. He travelled the world because the plants of 3 corporations are all around the world and he has to oversee them.

At any rate Europe knows his character and will keep him at least. He'll pay his fine and leave Japan. If he goes to jail that's the end of working in Japan for western execs as they won't be able to trust the forms they're signing

"The Ghosn misconduct scandal revealed a serious problem with Nissan's corporate governance," Soichiro Nagai, lead rating analyst at Rating and Investment Information, said.

That there isn't any. That the board of directors is not responsible and has no fiduciary capacity. That they are ungrateful and resentful for Reneau bailing them out. That any measures to fix it will just be more papermache theatre. Interestingly none of those directors will be investigated or held for 20 days

Pursuing scale and limiting costs through partnerships remains vital, but a powerful management chief alone can no longer oversee increasingly diversified operations that can involve everything from traditional car manufacturing to developing advanced wireless and artificial intelligence technologies and offering services using autonomous vehicles, they say.

What do 'they' know? Ghosn has been doing this since 1998!! Think about that. He's known details about details between three or four companies, and had to in order to keep it all straight. And did so. He was a hard leader but was no slouch. You had to be your best around him. Multiple levels above any J-exec.

This is just media trashing because Kyodo is an extension of the system. Doesn't matter what the justice system says, it will continue to be written elsewhere that working for a Japanese company is not worth it.

Maybe that investigation will come later if he's found guilty?

No investigation will occur whether guilty or innocent. Japan Inc will continue as it always has

it's a setup, they just wanted him out and now are free to put the successful Nissan back into bankruptcy

he was paid a lot by 3 companies and someone would have had to have helped him manage the Japanese requirements for him so no doubt he was pushed. It's the application of a hook we've seen before so this is nothing new

clear and obvious discrimination. Also they're basing their actions on something that happened two years ago that had nothing to do with him, so that's also discrimination. It's discrimination-a-la-polluza

This will be a good test of the law and to see if it can withstand challenges and be applied by judges

Posted in: Children to be given priority for iodine tablets against radiation See in context

The children should have been moved out never to return. The whole area should be cordoned off for a few hundred years. Since the scientific literacy and engineering required to keep the reactors under check for that long are going to need a dedicated workforce, setup a local town to do that with that responsibility. Not everything is a hot spot so that would be the place for it. Other than that, evacuate the area

But some municipal governments have yet to hand out the tablets to all residents, including children who are more vulnerable to radiation exposure.

Thus ensuring the children get cancer. What a travesty

The ability to work for less money is the only weapon low skilled foreign workers have that allows them to grow in the labor market to a position in which they can make more money.

Huh? That clearly never happens and they have left because of it. Here's the link again from above: http://the-japan-news.com/news/article/0005355892

"""About 70 percent (67.2%) of 2,870 foreign technical intern trainees who deserted workplaces where they received professional training cited low wages as the reason, according to a Justice Ministry survey."""

Also since dairy is associated with so many health risks including dementia and because of the increase of dairy in Japan, FYI here's how industry creates studies that look good, but under closer examination are not. This instruction will be helpful if you ever want to take a study apart and find out why.  

TL;DR they add oil to the veg diets

ApoE is the gene expression for Alzheimer's. Nigerians have this more than anyone but guess what, Nigeria doesn't have Alzheimer's anywhere close to the USA. Why? They eat a mostly plant based diet. Those same Nigerians moving to the USA though take up a USA diet and guess what? They have a higher prevalence of Alzheimer's.

This is important because as Japan increases its diet to match that of the USA, it will continue to receive the same diseases as well. The previous low meat consumption Japanese diet was more healthy. This is the Okinawa diet. But only the elders are healthy, the younger Okinawans are much sicker, higher obesity etc.

So yeah, some genes are like committees and others are non negotiable. The good news is that you can negotiate your Alzheimer's response even if you have a higher prevalence of the ApoE gene expression by following a plant based diet.

If you have a long living family member that's great. What about your dad though? What about other family members? Aunts and Uncles? Odds are they didn't fair so well.

You want to actually know what's going on, visit NutritionFacts.org , and see the science.

Thinking of all the scandals this year in Japan Inc. and this is really nothing. Someone was jealous and wanted him out. No bowing or promise to do better. It's quite a stark contrast to the Japanese apology system versus how foreign leaders are treated. Irony isn't being properly translated

The science shows explicitly that it's not a genetic component and it's a dietary reaction. Just watch the video for Pete's sake. It's 3 minutes of education

The dietary factor most strongly associated with the rise in Alzheimer’s disease in Japan was the increased consumption of animal fat. Same correlations found in China. Protective foods include eating more grains in general and vegetarian diets
