Terrible stuff. There was also the news item about the Australian passenger who was sexually assaulted by a Malaysian Airlines steward on one of their flights.

Zulus were primarily used in the mines and industry and also confined to KwaZul Natal. very few made it to Cape Town where migrant labour is predominantly Xhosa.
Reckless - yes, he apparently does have a good time. Big hit with the local movie and media babes.

soon all airlines will allow this. on the plus side poor staff won't have to run around stopping people from calling or texting around takeogff time. On the downside idiots will be calling and texting around takeoff time.

Koreans and Chinese are doing this now much better. most of the leading Japanese products (e.g. cars) are now primarily manufactured overseas, even if their parent companies still HQ in Japan.
Posted in: Japanese companies need to regain the animal spirit they lost over the past 20 years to lead innovation and sell products abroad. This is something that the government and business have to take more seriously.

Is there any information on the author? while I might be convinced that the Russians have been wrongfully blamed for this incident, not sure this article does it for me. seems like a bunch of disparate rants thrown together with no real logic or cohesive argument.

Excellet. Film called "Zulu" - which will always be in the shadow of the Michael Caine classic and called "Capetown" in Japan - should be Cape Town and anyway Zulus are not from Cape Town nor do may migrate there. Mainly Xhosa......

All for a good cause and uses every asset that can be deployed by the AV industry. Ice bucket challenge does indeed look lame against this inventive and original fundraiser.

i agree quite original in the sense of merging 2 styles of music that are very popular in Japan. Image and sounds arecontradictory but somehow work.

They should indeed nip it in the bud. This is no tiddly offense but outright offensive racism. Football fans seem to cling on to all sorts of outdated views. It must be stopped at all costs. Waving a bannana indeed!!! who would have thought such outright discrimination and racism was possible in modern Japan!!!!

True but some of the consequences (e.g. low unemployment) have been fine. Eventually this will become an untenable policy and is likely to do so far quicker in the West where we see the US and Europe trying the same approach.
