Desaki just taking the hit for the company and sure the overseas branch is giving him a nice Golden parachute so he will be well taken care of. Unbelievable this could happen and to risk the companies reputation, who wants to go work for them and clients will second guess them.

I think you have to fight back to a degree. In Junior high school, we had small gangs that used to walk around the school and if for some reason, they didn't like you, they would kick or punch you. I fought back and cussed at them silly and caught a few punches and was kicked from behind, but part of growing up I guess. Or, they should have hall monitors that report any abuse or potential fights at school. These kids need a more proactive system, a system where they can report to someone quickly and who can attend to the situation immediately.

I still way prefer my plasma TV over LCD or EDT screens, the picture is just clearer and especially watching fast moving objects on screen like sport programs, etc. Although Panasonic plasma screens are good, the internal speakers are just horrendous as they vibrate like crazy.

This could lead to the collapse of theUS dollar currency system and force everyone to start over. Maybe back to a Gold backed currency system to put a lid on borrowing and keep balance in check.

I don't understand why they had to kill her, I realized that she almost ran them over but like someone said, why didn't they just shoot out the tires? Something ain't right here.

I heard that the vendor supplying the holding tanks were of a cheaper type as TEPCO chose to go with lower quality do to pricing. This is a crime, TEPCO should not be making any more decisions and the government needs to step up their game and treat this situation seriously.

I thought Uruguay's defense was quite good and left only small pockets open, which Japan couldn't seem to penetrate through. Japan really needs to work on offense and better midfield shooting. And they were hopeless going up the middle and seemed to only have a chance by passing in from the outside lanes.
