"The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) reprimanded Benesse and ordered the company to improve its data protection systems and strengthen oversight."
There is nothing you can do against unscrupulous employees, whatever the education you give them.
I have access, like many people, to confidential or privileged information but it never came in my mind to steal and steal that data.
The plaintiffs should sue the data thief instead while Benesse shared also the blame.

Turbostat: well, the adjusted GISS data seems rather disturbing. I agree. That said, this is surface temperatures and not reliable as the only source for climatic models.

turbostat: heavy rain in your region doesn't disprove sever drought in other regions.
There is a global warming trend coinciding with human activity.
So far, the best explaination for this trend is the tons of carbon accumulated during millions of years being released in the atmosphere among other things over about 200 years.
Even a couple of tenth of a degree is enough to change weather patterns.
Reaction is different in every region.

I don't understand how you can glorify a killer.
“God bless our troops, especially our snipers,”
And that's coming from someone with strong Christian values.

"In 2010, the Legislature eliminated a statute of limitations for victims of sexual battery younger than 16. "
As there should be, even older than 16.
"The lawsuit was filed by two brothers, who were ages 9 and 5 when Poole was arrested."
Were they part of the original indictment?
"Two alleged victims of a registered sex offender have filed a lawsuit seeking damages for pain and suffering after the man won $3 million in a Florida Lottery jackpot."
Don't want to play the devil advocate but coming forward 15 years later for compensation?
Also, why on earth evil people can be as lucky as winning the lottery?
