Moron. Always some excuse for why women can't get ahead in Japan.
Posted in: It's a custom among Japanese corporations to promote someone who knows the company well: people who have been with the company a long time and have transferred to different departments and places. Women tend to end up quitting before experiencing all that.

Can't help but see echoes in this of the huge success NATO or "the West's" involvmenet achieved in the Balkans and in many parts of Africa and the Maghreb and the Middle East. Just raising the stakes increases the level of aggression and entrenched positions.
Crimea is already gone and chances are the corridor to Mariuopol is also an inevitability. Seems to me that russia has the upper hand in all this because they care more. so Ukraine should just get on with agreeing where to draw the line. If the assertions above about Ukrainiains being "a people" (although what were they before Ukraine existed - Cossack? Poles? Ruthenians? Russians) then why not set the borders to where their "people" are in the majority and let the Donestkians gooff and set up another criminal mini state along the lines of Moldova.......

More freedoms being discarded in the name of the war on terror. Should have just left these punters alone in the first place.

Why do celebs allow themselves to be snapped in the nude )(or even more puzzling, make sex tapes) if they don't want the pictures to be seen?

the latest incident to shed light on the country’s little-discussed hazing culture.
Is it "little discussed"??? i think it is common knowledge that this is a normal feature of initiation into all walks of Japanese life. it is indeed bullying and happens in work and army and school and even moving intom new apartment block.......

Shame Nessie. don't think they were THAT overrated. They were precursors to the short sharp shock style of songmaking that we all know and love now. Certainly think they beat lots of the new pap hands down - except AKB 48 of course.

I don't really think about it but if people like it and it doesn't harm others then live and let live. My guess is legalised gambling (casinos) in Japan will make a big dent in the industry.

No surprise. Russia will keep applying the pressure and this will eventually become yesterday's news and then Russia will take what it wants.

He should move on. Man U are really appalling and have treated him badly. Plus not like they are going to be contenders anytime soon. 4-0? looks like Fergie was an even better manager than we gave him credit for.

Just the beginning. The residents continue to be treated disgracefully and i bet the medical fallout of this will also be dealt with in an underhand and wholly inadequate way by TEPCO and the government
