Price drop, consumers don't buy, as if we can wait a week of not eating or being naked. Economic models are economist's fart, why do they even award noble prices to these people and not for Mathematics which IMHO is a much more noble topic than an economist's "prediction".

Like business in real life, the value of MBA is directly proportional to the net worth of the individuals within its alumni network. You know the old saying "it's not what you know, it's who you know".

And again, no punishment except to rely on the "market" to boycott them. I think it's time to tax corporate lies, if you get caught lying, you get tax penalty for 10 years. I bet you that tank the stock price faster than greedy opportunist investors yelling "sell sell sell".

Lol, so the better solution thought up by JT's fine readers is to "educate" men that they can't just assault any women !? Seriously ? I wonder why sexual assaults usually happen in closed areas where no one is looking ? Is it because these predators know they can't do that ? Reality hammer has hit you multiple times and you still refuse to wake up.
I'd rather tell my daughters that there are predators out there, and it's never their fault if those predators targeted them, and that they can fight back! because fighting back is the first line of defense. Give in and predators win easily! Fight but fail ? it's still not their faults!

"Giving up" and family don't go hand in hand. In my dictionary, you DO NOT give up on family, no matter what.

Evolutionary speaking, the sound of children laughing and playing indicates "safety" zone. If you find them disturbing, YOU are the problem, I strongly suggest you visit a psychiatrist.

Bad teachers teach the "how", good teachers teach the "why", great teachers teach you to ask "why ?" by planting a seed of curiosity and desire in you to teach yourself.
Sadly Japan is full of teachers in the first category.

Rurouni Kenshin movies are pretty good. I read that the fight choreographer was a student of Donnie Yen. Maybe that's Japanese movie problem, they don't learn from other countries, because of fear of becoming "none-pure" Japanese movie or some silly notion.

Seeing the kids falling time and time again trying to ride a bicycle, but their persistence won in the end. They rode screaming "this is fun!!". That's when I know that they'll do fine in life, I can stop worrying so much.

McDonald's was the first burger I ever tasted, it was so delicious. Then I went to the US and was mind blown after realizing that that there are other restaurants that can make burgers (burger isn't some patented food by McDonald's), real juicy meat, not the dry flatten poop patty they serve. I have never been back to McDonald's ever since.

Anyone with 10+ million in savings and a little brain will learn that the bank is ripping them off. After Glass Steagall was erased, Banks gamble with your money and yet pay interest worth less than the average rock. Why give legalized thieves (a.k.a. Bank) money when you can hide those money in tax haven hedge funds which actually work for your interests to ensure much higher returns ?

IMHO, trying to learn martial art today in order to feel more secure is like practicing piano with a single-octave toy piano and thinking the skill will translate directly to a grand piano. In the old days martial arts were taught by masters who actually survived numerous life and death situations. Most teachers today probably never even fought a real fight before, they're just teaching you ceremony and showmanship.

A record number of relatives and friends from countries I lived in before coming to Japan, visited Japan last year and this year as well. I'm more than happy to be able to see them after a long time.

I work from home once or twice in a month. I have to admit with 2 active daughters, it's almost impossible. So in the morning, wife takes them out and give me a full 4 hours of concentrated work. In the afternoon, spend time playing with the kids, doing chores while wife takes care of business for which she needed me to "stay home" that day. After children go to sleep at night, I continue to work for a couple more hours.
6 hours of work at home compare to 8 hours in the office, not a bad deal IMHO. What Japan need is not facilities, but fewer working hours.
