I checked Nihon Mothers Association's site. Obviously this is a corporate sponsored NPO which mainly employs celebrities to promote their stuff, e.g. Hasegawa or Tsuji( the winner in culture category) uses this, so you should use it too. Old stuff, Sasoriza is not impressed.
My vote goes to the Japanese mother, who died shielding her daughter during the stabbing spree in Guam.For me, she is the Mother Of the Year in Japan, in any category.

Everything is photoshopped these days, especially in the entertainment industry. Everywhere. I wonder what would happen if a worldwide ban on Photoshop was imposed for, say, 6 months?

No. When in pain , people would say anything just to make the pain stop. They would tell the interrogators what they want to hear, not what the tortured really knows. There are ways, if you hire really good psychologist, to extract the truth.
Posted in: Do you support torture as an interrogation method if the objective is to gain information that would prevent an attack like the Boston Marathon bombings or 9/11?

Very nice questions indeed. I would have passed with flying colors
What did the HR asked me instead was "If your child gets sick and has fever, and we are very busy with important project, what will you do ?" or "If your husband (foreigner like me) suddenly gets transferred to another city or abroad, what will you do?" , and the hardest one ( I wish I had a recorder at that time) was " Are you willing to part with your boyfriend in order to dedicate yourself to our company?"

You don't hire Thunderbirds to promote something military related, you hire Michael Bay.

US health insurance system?! Better not! I still remember "Sicko", and quick googling the issue gave me enough info to conclude that US maybe the No 1 economy I'm the world, but their health insurance is the worst. Zealots can T D me as much as they want, but facts are facts. Japan will only lose big if it allows US insurance companies unlimited access and allows bigger privatization of the insurance sector.

I'm not in position to judge about US internal policy , so the only thing I can say is, may all little angels who went to heaven that day forgive us, the adults, for creating this crazy, bitter world they had to live in.

I agree with Serrano- it is not fair to suffer because of few rotten apples. Just introduce more severe punishment for those who misbehave , like sending them home immediately or deploying them to a war zone.

Keep your mouth and hands busy- talk to the others, perform something , do origami from hashi wrappers and napkins, encourage nijikai to be at karaoke. Stick to the salad, chips and beer.
