It is just mind-boggling that Trump has lasted thus far in the primaries.

Children need to learn to delay gratification and to learn the joy of struggle. Mothers (in particular) need to stop coddling their children and allow children to experience the consequences of their own decisions. Good habits need to be instilled in children the first 5 years--we learned all this in our Psychology classes. Finally, parents need good role models not Naoki Ogi, please.

First, thank God that Yamato was found and is safe.
Anyone who has conscientiously engaged with parenting know that there is a fine line between discipline and abuse. In some way, if we are truly honest with ourselves and withhold judgement, we as parents can relate with Mr. and Mrs. Tanooka.
Rather than pass judgement on others which is just too easy to do, I hope we parents learn more about effective parenting and what we do to raise great and responsible men and women. Effective parenting, like anything else, can be learned.

Based on what has been reported, sadly, I believe the boy was abducted. Really hope he is ok and will be found eventually.

Japan is a haven for under-aged criminals and criminals in general. The police here are reactive / passive even as people become more brazen committing everyday infractions including running red-lights, driving through stop signs, parking in no-park zones, etc, etc. Law enforcement officials needs to change with the changes in society.

At this point, Nishikori chances of winning even a match are slim and none. His post US Open performance has been anything but top-10 material.

How about all the food companies, and all the hotels and restaurants from a few years ago. And it's not just Japan...it's happening everywhere in all industries.

Just go to any gov't institution--be it a shiyakusho, kuyakusho, national university, etc.--and you see loads of people doing busy work: preparing redundant documents after documents...so much waste still going on even as Japan sits with an ever increasing debt that is now roughly JPY10 Mill per citizen and approx. 200% of GDP.

A perfect example of the media fabricating controversy among 'supposed' rivals. The facts: Gatlin hasn't even come close to Bolt's numbers and it won't even be a contest. Give it a rest.

Not even Fukushima was enough. What will it take for Abe and his cabinet to learn?

It has been a relief to see Japan have a stable leader in Abe and IMO, he is doing a good job. However I disagree with his policies on three fronts:
The first pertains to this article of his support for expanding military role; the second is his support of the temporary workers bill, and the third is his support for nuclear energy.

Goldman Sachs. Their board is mostly men.
Posted in: I think there is a decent percentage of married women for whom a neutralized tax and social security system would incentivize them to work more, including full-time roles as opposed to just part time. This would ultimately lead to higher incomes and greater benefits for their whole families.
