    The police in these tough black neighborhoods are basically working in war zones due to the high amount of crime and murders. Its not the police that are making these neighborhoods dangerous, they're just reacting to the problem. Beyoncé should be looking at solving the problem of all these black kids growing up without fathers and trying to bring jobs to these cities.... not targets cops trying to do their jobs.

    Just to give you a reference.... in the USA, the 1 year survival rate after liver transplantation is about 90% for patients living at home and about 60% for those who are critically ill at the time of surgery.

    For some reason Japanese men enjoy "role playing". They love to act like little boys while they are at these hostess bars... but you know what... they actually look like they're having fun and I think they are. I think most of us western men are unable to get past the idea that these girls are trying to make money and are basically blowing smoke up our you know what to do so. We feel its an insult to our intelligence where many Japanese men could care less. As long as these Japanese guys are not putting their family in the poor house... heck, let them enjoy it.

    Went to some hostess bars.... almost always on the company dime.... and the whole time I was there I thought it was a big waste of money. I had a good time at one once though.... it was when I took a few friends to one that were visiting from the states. It was their first time in one....I had such a great laugh when the were totally eating up all the compliments the girls gave them. They left the bar feeling like men that night.... but that soon changed when they got back to the states.

    Plenty of American Baseball coaches have tried their hand managing Japanese teams.... it must have been a shock to the Japanese players when they were not forced to run 100 laps before and after practice.

    I think this guy should clean up his own backyard first. Plenty of animal cruelty in the food industry in the USA to keep him occupied. Not that I approve of the Dolphin hunt tactics but not a fan of anybody that crosses borders when there is work to do within.

    "Each Hyogo Prefecture assembly member receives Y450,000 a month and unused money must be returned." What? Blame Hyogo Prefecture..... why would they advance their assemblymen Y450,000 a month? They should reimburse them for expenses after receipts are turned in.

    In the USA... the media is all over the govt., to the point where things are quite messy... its like living in a storm of chaos. But I'd rather live in this chaos and know we're forcing transparency on our officials than hope I could trust them. Japan is somewhere in between Singapore and the USA.

    Look at Singapore.... the average politician makes around $300,000, with some top members making over $1 million. The idea is to pay them so much that they don't need to use the office for other financial gain. However that said, Singapore's court system, in my opinion, weighs heavily in favor of the govt., and its media can barely print anything without govt. approval, so what would stop a politician from becoming corrupt, especially if it is totally on the honor system with almost no one looking. In Japan the media is much more a part of policing the government.

    Read the last paragraph.... the writer basically says the U.S. "hire and fire", system won't work.... and that with profits rising they have the means to pay for a Euro style system. And what does that mean? Come on.... outside of Germany, the rest of Europe is barely getting by. The overall Euro unemployment rate is over 10%. Try getting a job in Italy, France or Spain... you'd have better luck winning the lottery. I'd be willing to bet companies over there would love to trash their Euro style employment system and institute a "hire and fire" one. Bottom line to me, "hire and fire" is the most efficient system because it quickly rewards the hard and smart workers and gets rid of the slackers. Also look at the number of Billionaires worldwide by country.... Japan has 24... Australia has 27. Think about it... why?

    Well before Japanese food became stylish... Chinese food was all across the USA and yes, it was changed quite a bit to fit the tastes of Americans. At that time pretty much all Chinese restaurants were run by Chinese. With Japanese food, at least in the USA, I don't think even 1 in 10 restaurants are run by Japanese. If the Ministry of Ag, Fish, and Forest wants to make Japanese food better for all, they should negotiate 2 and 3 year work visas for Japanese chefs to work in foreign countries.

    @Yubaru... do you work at Asahi Kasei.. if yes then I might understand your attitude.

    Yes.... Asahi Kasei admitted that 61 of its employees fabricated data on 360 building projects since 2005. Think about that. 1st... those that paid for the other 359 projects have the right to know the data was fabricated. They also have the right to have an independent study done to verify if the fabricated data was detrimental to their construction. Also, if the list of those other 359 projects becomes public, it will most likely decrease the value of them whether they're found to be defective or not because the "independent", survey will most likely not be totally trusted no matter who does it. Either way... this is a very large problem.
