Sending in full time (white/western) Apple employees dedicated to just human rights and conditions to every manufacturing location with the authority to report anything not up to spec and taking videos and photos day in and day out with random interviews and questionnaires would make a world of difference and cost little compared to a lawsuit. I'm surprised they don't do this already. Forget random showing ups, but that person needs to stay onsite 24/7 365 and just wander around the halls, workplaces, staff rooms, cafeteria, living areas, etc snapping photos and taking notes... who cares if the person can't speak Chinese....just the existence of that person would make a huge difference...

you could just pump seawater up once and dilute the contaminated water to your satisfaction and then let it loose into the sea.... or to save time just dump it all and fudge the numbers afterwards since it's the same thing....

I would imagine 90% of the phones have GPS and 70% of those are smartphones. You would think they could pinpoint the exact location as soon as they noticed them missing. The theif would not be turning off all the phones straight away nor carrying a large metal box. You should be able to track the phones right up till they lose reception. If the perpetrator is stupid then they may even turn the smartphones on when attempting to wipe the phone without being in a reception contained room.

Actually it's quite cheap for what it can do. Just that the article is crap!! Mobile ECG (electrocardiogram) devices are not cheap.
Silmee device that can measure skin temperature, heart rate, motion, sleep quality, and more. It’s aimed at researchers and medical professionals and offers more precise measurements than a typical consumer device: the heart rate sensor actually has electrocardiogram functionality. The Silmee Bar type Lite can measure a breathing interval based on cardiac potential.
Hospitals and people with certain problems can benefit from these wearables and with good software analytics can learn from the data points. Remember, the cost is not in the hardware, but the quality of the software!!

God no, murdering mass people is never morally justifiable. I wonder if they ever considered dropping the nuke on a slightly less inhabited area? Damage and fallout would be the same, just less dead humans....

This is just to throw everyone off balance for the bigger debate on changing the constitution. Abe-chan was always going to default on the stadium so he can show to the public that 1 out of 2 problems can be resolved. Simple and effective politics. Sleight of hand....

You didn't need re-entry stamps from 3 years ago unless leaving Japan for more than 1 year at a time. The new cards look fine, but the underlying system was to gather more individual data on all foreigners into one system. Their first version of the my number system for aliens. Not my cup of tea.

For Asia it is usually before bed especially if you have air conditioning. After a day in the sweltering humidity you have no choice. The sweat during the day while working and going outside is different to the sweat while sleeping quietly.

I have yet to meet a Japanese who actually likes the Japanese National Anthem. Every person has said that it is dull (暗い) and really not suitable for public audiences like sports and school. They like to compare against the British National Anthem which is even more Nationalistic, but much more lively. In other words the content is not so important when the rest of the world doesn't understand it, but the melody is very important. I know Japan has tried to introduce newer versions, but to no avail. Personally something that cheers on the crowd before and after a game would be more welcome.

only global Japanese companies have benefitted and many SMB's are struggling. Cheap oil and a weaker yen against the dollar is not a quick fix if Japanese is not producing or selling more.
