By telling us this did they think we would feel better since the emergency systems started IMMEDIATELY(like they should do at any properly MAINTAINED nuclear facility)?? Instead it just continues to highlight TEPCOs incompetency further...

TEPCO; a model example of corporate responsibility, open to all opinions and recommendations. They should teach business ethics courses: A-always B-be C-corrupting

Why are people arguing about the legality of bringing these things on board an aircraft?? It's COMMON SENSE to not do that, not a question of whether you can or not. But then again, common sense is becoming less common these days.

Posted in: S Korean soccer player barred from medal ceremony over political message See in context

The Olympics are about bringing the world together. This kind of behavior spits in the face of that so its right that he didnt receive a medal. I hope he gets a lot of "hey can i see your medal? Oh right you dont have one"... Leave the politics at home and just play the game.

Posted in: Customer service in Japan vs Europe See in context

I'm from Australia but live in Japan and feel Japanese customer service is the best without a doubt.

Sometimes in Australia when asking for tomato sauce or something I feel like I'm asking for a kidney, in Japan not at all.

And most Japanese stores are so overstaffed, with most staff just standing and waiting that I feel like I am speeding up their day when I ask for even the tinniest thing. Be busy and the day goes faster haha.

But now I've accepted that both are good customer services, just different. In Japan a customer is treated like God, in Australia is treated like a friend.

Posted in: Anti-nuclear protesters surround Diet building See in context

Great to see people wanting to be heard but Its sad that protests like this, with tens of thousands, do nothing to sway the gov but the chinese protest a sewerage pipeline, with only hundreds, and the gov folds to pressure.

Posted in: Gun culture thrives in U.S. despite cinema massacre See in context

The argument of "If someone in the cinema had a gun they could've taken him down" is null in the argument due to the gunman using a smoke or tear explosive in the cinema. If someone could've used their own weapon to take down the gunman, THEY could've injured or killed people too.

Hey Hashimoto, how about worrying about reactor 4's ability to withstand a big quake and not turn the whole country into vapor instead of worrying about people using their FREE RIGHT to get a tattoo!!!? I think Im done with this country... Craziness.

Posted in: Critics say reactor restart decision risks health of people, economy See in context

“We can no longer go back to a life that depends on candles,” ruling party heavyweight Yoshito Sengoku said

Of course he would say that. He's 66 years old and closer to the end than the beginning. Why would he care if there's another nuclear accident?

Plus isn't 60 the retirement age here? He should be playing 碁 and not making decisions that affect future generations based on his bank account.
