The group-think idea of Japanese is nonsense- its just them pretending. Get them one on one and they will do manipulating, pushing their ideas and complaining. Some are hopeless followers.
Characteristics of Japanese permanent employees- bad at doing their jobs right- my wife is doing a boring fairly simple job. The permanent are inconsistant- first giving her great autonomy as leader then pulling all that off the next day. Then they can't fully explain a new task and put few people on a task they suddenly decide is urgent.
This Japanese culture is not what made Japan great. It was a few radicals who brought the best ideas and systems- people never thought of normal Japanese by Japanese. The Japanese thinking has been pulling the country backwards.

Standard nuclear workers are covered as contract workers under special legislation that also covers chemical industry workers and a few other sectors. Tepco can directly employ without needing to cover any more than standard employment conditions- they don't need to subcontract.

They just followed the standard labor practices in Japan so naturally its shady and involves the Yakuza. To raise wages they would have to remove the useless seishin salaryman. As its nuclear, they could use contract labour without all the nonsense middlemen.

You do have to wonder about the treatment from the original animal hospital 15 years ago- what he goes to the vet with this young leopard and they don't think to notify the local authorities, they just hand back the animal to this local man. Here have this treated but still weak wild young animal- I am sure you will naturally do the right thing. The vet couldn't recognize a non-domesticated cat.

The continued attack on the use of mercury is an absurd overreaction- there is far more mercury released by natural sources including bush fires, volcanic eruptions than human's caused release. Also mercury is transformed from the dangerous elemental and methylmercury (Minamata) to harmless forms by all sorts of living and nonliving processes. Mercury in fish not contaminated by methylmercury is no danger to humans at all.

You mean a totally opaque process- all done behind closed doors in a mega-meeting of political representatives. Its definitely not peer-reviewed. Involving collection of various sources including the output of activist groups and press releases as well as draft scientific paper and some actually journal peer reviewed but never confirmed- a mass of white, grey and black sources.

Good to know you think old people are worthless- here is your chance commit ritual suicide. They can't fire he's Seishain but they force him to work at cleaning up after the Tohoku Disaster- there goes the rest of his life- there is undocumented toxic waste there. A little bit of truth with a lot of being a scumbag. They have missed so many chances to help the people affected by these disasters to move on with their lives.

Where is the bond market chaos- its common knowledge that TEPCO has failed- unless willfully deluding themselves- market traders are always ahead of the loop. Sounds like a load of nonsense- TEPCO bankruptcty will have no consequences.

They don't know what they are doing- Earth scientists are extremely arrogant- they aren't searching for origin just a point in the Earth where the earthquake seems to first appear.
The Earth is basically unknown- all the stuff in books is merely hypothesis- little to no data support.

As far the Olympics is concerned- Fukushima is under control- it will never affect the Olympics (too far away)- Chernobyl isn't under control- the place is a mess with concrete entombment falling apart and no money to do anything- is the Olympic Committee asking is it under control- no.

I like Sazae-san- much better than Evangelion and other ridiculous giant robot anime, not as good as early Naruto or One Piece.

What people know that INES is largely a public relations- not actual hazards- incident assessment.
Reading it would place the incident as 2 or 4 (only if it affects food- in other ways its not) given the inconsistent general descriptions. The international press has no understanding of INES because they are lazy incapable of doing the simplest web search and interpretation. Otherwise the IPCC couldn't have got away with some of it of its most ridiculous lies like the lead authors being top experts when they were undergraduates.

Why do they say chronologically (of time) correct- it all exists now? I think they mean spatial (position) logical and coherent.
Some areas are certainly not spatially coherent with location placed in separate wards when they are next door. The fact that you can't walk in a line and travel along an increasing or decreasing set of numbers makes its spatially illogical.

Don't worry Brazil has some of the worst prisons in world- Candiru is rated worst- you won't have to worry about the length of prison term- he might not last 5 years. Prosecute him in Brazil and he will regret escaping to Brazil.

Chinese just drive like you expect in a country badly affected by endemic corruption- terrible. The Iraqi do the same by all reports they drive the wrong way done one way streets, down pedestrian paths. You can't judge them badly if the other guy who has contacts with the local communist committee can get away with almost anything- traffic police who write infringements for connected individuals end up with their careers destroyed.
