    Pretty sad news, but at least he died doing (presumably) something he loved, swimming or surfing... RIP.

    Not for long, and anybody else, and his grandmother would be better in this position.

    Japan today's headline is horribly wrong, completely misleading the reader. They were arrested for doing activities not compatible with their visa status. They should arrest the shop owner claiming to have them as employees as well. BTW, besides baby diapers, Japanese female hygiene products (menstrual pads) are also all the rage among Chinese tourists. I once witnessed a lady exporting to China a huge amount of these in her carry on.

    Yeah, her total disconsideration for the LAW was extremely obvious yesterday. truly thinking she's above it.

    Frungy, don't you teach me about automotive industry, mmkay?!?! ;) Working WITH one of these makers is not equal to working AT one of them for more than a decade. Recalls are not at all avoided, it costs the car maker close nothing in such a case, where the supplier has all the responsibility.

    recalls are only done if there are enough civil suits

    That's certainly not true, the recalls are done by the automotive manufacturers, not the supplier, and the manufacturer has usually safety first in mind. As the part is obviously not made to the given and contacted specification, the supplier will bear the costs...

    True, the fines are too low, but the recall costs are staggering. Running a plant, once established, while definitely more expensive in Japan, could in the end prove less costly, if these issues are taken into account. You will NOT find chewing gum in a product made in Japan, especially not in one as sensitive as an airbag...

    That's the price they'll have to pay for relying on cheap work overseas.with the fines and recall money, they could've run a Japanese plant for decades...

    Lostrune, the Airbus A380 started the composite trend. It was a matter of time anyway. The 780 is far from being all composite.

    NRA has reported that The Fukushima Daiichi accident was caused by the tsunami

    Yeah, as opposed to labelling it as "human error". But not knowing how to enable natural flow cooling was fatal, and the obvious lack of training and emergency procedures in place are human errors, and labelling it as a "natural disaster" will move the focus away from the real problems. But it will not disturb the "wa", so it's daijoubu, desune.

    Gal - while the backup power was a major problem at Fukushima already, the design allowed the reactors cooling to function with natural convection only, without power. The people controlling it did not know how to enable this (manual opening of a number of massive valves allowing water flow in the right direction), due to an obvious lack of training and emergency procedures.

    The gaijin women (primarily from US) not understanding the Japanese preference for such an activity, and complaining very loudly, is a very common pattern. But while at it, why don't you start with the American junior beauty pageants? Exactly as disgusting, and not less pornographic than the Japanese idol movement.

    What this article does not talk about is the tremendous performance increase the Nexus 6 brings vs the iPhone 6 (at the same price). They are doubling or more on every spec, notably the display resolution, the memory size and the CPU speed: http://www.itproportal.com/2014/10/15/google-nexus-6-vs-apple-iphone-6-plus-spec-comparison/

    Wanna bet he's going to be let free, with strict supervision and increased medication? Unfortunately it's illegal to cut out his balls, but he would be the ideal case for this.

    He didn't noticed? Wrong - he probably DID noticed and just choose to ignore him. At least once a week I encounter drivers ignoring me on a cross, where a person has priority. I guess the police should get busy and start catching these guys...

    Hugely BAAAAD concept someone managed to somehow build (would luckily never happen nowadays). Besides it's questionable value as a scientific trial of how small can the rabbit cages be made before Japanese start complaining, it has no other purpose.

    Taking it down and replacing it with something that actually MAKES SENSE would, you know, make sense...

    Yeah, Suzuka has it's own special rhythm. Very fast, makes one always feel on the edge, even if just driving around in a less than 400 hp car...

    I've had the misfortune of having to use an iphone for work.. The keyboard is so frustratingly slow comparing with swype that it kills me.. (I'm beta testing since 5 years swype and can get the app for free, but it costs only around 1 dollar anyway).
