China is rich with no debts. Didn’t know that. Anyway, most of that money stays in Japan, building home businesses; IOW, it’s a back door to sponsoring national companies. You won’t see many ‘Made in China’ goods.

Posted in: 27 rescued from human trafficking in Japan in 2018 See in context

Need to take out one of the two to three cop teams giving out traffic tickets. I see up to 3 questioning an old man on a bicycle. They’ll be busy with the rugby and olympics in the coming months. Please find these human traffickers. Lock them up and throw the keys away.

Posted in: Japanese firms resist hiring foreign workers under new immigration law: poll See in context

This first generation will struggle as all immigrants do around the world. It’ll be interesting as the children of these immigrants / mixed race children begin to fit in. Japan will internationalize one way or another. No question. Japan as we know it today is living its last days, no question. Japan will begin to look like other normal international countries.

It's time for Japan, Inc to parade their best. There won’t be another opportunity to boast as these two years where the Rugby then olympics will attract many. Wish them all luck.

Posted in: Sony sees smartphone business as indispensable, says CEO See in context

Long has Sony had the Sony Timer epithet. Some of my Sony products were OK, others broke soon. My worse experience was having to send a product made for the English language community to the US for repair. It was bought in Japan. They do business in such ridiculous ways. It could be corporate culture but it’s definitely a minus. This is where Apple has a clear foot up, clearly thinking of the customer, not its corporate image alone.

Posted in: Vaccine doubts spread like disease, must be taken offline: vaccine chief See in context

Global Warming hype with another face. The trend is to trust what your body is telling you, not what social media & others are saying. Without getting political, if people trusted social media and known Hollywood faces and media in general, Trump today wouldn't be president. I trust people's intuition over big biz disinformation for the sake of a profit. How can you uncouple these two?

Posted in: Kono to ask foreign media to switch order of Japanese names See in context

It's a bad idea. If it were for Japanese readers, I'd consider it. Foreigners read a name opposite. Some Asians & Hungarians read names like Japanese do. That's it. Since foreign media writes for foreign readers - except those mentioned above - they should stick to their culture. If on occasion they'd like to add a cultural footnote, OK. Maybe I can suggest Kono & Co to reverse their culture and go international. Less people around the world would go confused.

Traitors. All for money. We’re in a war where governments are using stolen (forced transfer of) technology against the same people that gave it to them in the first place. Governments should make it a crime for any forcefully transferred technology to be sold in the technology-native nation.

Time for the Chinese Communist Party to divorce business. Time for Chinese people to get a break without big daddy CCP stocking their paws in.

Posted in: Antibiotics after assisted births could stop thousands of infections See in context

Anyone try Colloidal Silver? Works great, just as well as any antibiotic. Used it a lot, & so have friends. No side effects..unless you worry about argyria in which case it's like ODing on any substance.

This is the customer version of monster parents. Just threaten & say you'll call the police. They'll get lots of (unwanted?) attention.

Posted in: Nissan shakes up board, but keeps Saikawa as CEO See in context

I see little hope for Nissan in the near future. Saikawa? He’s at the heart of the problem. I wonder if it’s almost too late for Nissan.

Posted in: Gov't to urge firms to hire employees until age 70 amid labor crunch See in context

This will only stop the younger generation from finding a job. Why go to college if the old guys are there taking space and collecting their miserably small salaries? The government can’t afford pensions. Can they afford their young graduates who’ve spent years in cram schools, worked hard to get into good schools, etc. to be left out in the open just to keep the government from paying pensions? In a sense amakudari trumps the newly graduates. Not a smart move..again by the Abe administration.

The era of wars is over..I hope. It IS a stupid idea and comment, and I do think he must’ve been drunk or something; at least I hope he was. Regardless, out of politics is best for everyone.

Posted in: Why tariff war threatens Beijing's global economic ambitions See in context

Cheap is better than stealing. For sure China is not the first nor will it be the last to steal secrets. Every wants a good bargain. I like cheap. I often buy made in China goods but I also recognize that some of them are not native Chinese technology. Sad. China will end up taking the long clean path, but they’ll be proud. If you’re aiming to be #1 do it with dignity.

Tracking us should definitely be OUR option, not the bank’s’, shop’s or anyone else’s right or choice. Laws should start there .. and not something in legalese and small print buried on a contract. Good for SF and all the other cities.

Posted in: Japan begins last round of 'research' whaling off Pacific coast See in context

Bullfighter, I imagine Norwegians or Icelanders don’t insist their fishing is for scientific purposes. Why lie? If they’re going to sell whale meat, say so straight forward. I guess it’s too late. Can’t change a lie once it’s out there.
