Domestically, the electric infrastructure is not ready for mass adoption of ev’s. Japan already has a shortage of generating capacity.
Toyota is one of the few automakers willing to be honest about the current viability of ev’s for the mass market

If you believe that MSG a negative effect on your body, that’s likely what you are going to experience.
The origins of “Chinese Restaurant Syndrome” are attached to perceptions of Chinese in America and the low cost-value attached to their labor. If Chinese food was historically very expensive, like French cooking, we would likely point our suspicions elsewhere.
Nobody seems to get “Italian Restaurant Syndrome” even though you will find the very same ingredients in most red sauces and strong cheese.
You may begin your down voting now.

What a shame that the world seems to be stumbling into a period of contention and strife. We will all pay in time with a soured world economy and reduced prospects for younger workers.
We can thank politicians who find playing to our primitive tribal urges guarantees reelection.

I am often amazed at the anti-Japanese attitudes of posters to this site. Presumably if you are interested enough to post here you would have some knowledge or affection for Japan and its cultural traditions.
Formality is a core part of Japanese culture. It implies respect and conveys social class. Thankfully there are cultures left that have not slouched into rude informality.

Some of this seems like overreaction. Just asking if you are ok and if you are coming to work seems pretty innocuous.
If you have an hourly job, being told that you can still come to work and get paid would be a positive if you weren’t affected by the quake personally. Seems like they were just offering the option.
”Just getting on with it” is a way of recovering that is more productive than sitting at home rehashing your emotions.

Too risky. Keep your work world and your personal life separate or they will come together in some really unpleasant ways.

YouTube is the greatest conduit of information ever created. It is also the greatest conduit of nonsense, non-science and ignorance ever created.
Flat earthers, nazi’s, kale-enema advocates, religious nuts etc have all found a wonderful, free outlet.

Some realities need to be acknowledged around Kisenosato.
He has lost his short lived confidence and seems like a fish out water when he manages to show up.
There are plenty of great young guys who now have a shot at the top with the decline of the incumbent Yokozunas. (Yokozunae?)

As America is now in its “post logic and reason” phase, there is almost no chance that positive steps to control gun violence can be made. We are manipulated on all sides by special interests who profit from social divisions.
indeed, my own comments above will be read differently by people on each side of the issue, though I am being purposely vague.
