    I just don't understand why you'd take notes during a speech? Are you gonna be quizzed on it on your first day at work?

    In my American workplace, NO ONE EVER takes notes, and jobs are frequently left incomplete or forgotten. Besides, I think that most people retain a lot more of what's being said if they write down the key points. It's not like they're writing everything word for word...

    Is it just a front row thing? No one else behind them are writing anything

    I think the people who are looking down are probably taking notes. You just can't see their pen and pad.

    The usual apologists will be on soon to claim it's an American-led persecution and Takada is an upstanding company that has done nothing wrong...

    I feel pity for Takata because of the fact that they are guilty of a pretty terrible crime that resulted in the loss of lives. Does that make me an "apologist"? And BTW, the pity I feel is not for those who were directly responsible for the issues at hand, but for the tens of thousands of Takata executives, employees and their families who had no idea what was happening.

    Good. That's what happens when you hide / falsify data and your products KILL people. Hope Takata burns.

    I envy the simple outlook you have on things... did you read my comment above?

    How about your educate yourself first? It takes a female AND a male to make a baby. There is contraceptive available for men if you didn't know.

    You're absolutely right, in the case of your average girl and boy relationship. But you have to admit that some cases of unwanted pregnancies (I'm assuming this was an unwanted pregnancy because she didn't go to the hospital) are related to "Escort girls" or "Massage girls", in which case, a condom would be a must-have item for the girls to carry, not that it's the girls' sole responsibility, but that it's a professional obligation, just in case the male client does not provide a suitable contraceptive.

    Wrong, when a person acts with "reckless disregard" (like throwing a newborn out in the trash, and don't give me that "maybe it was stillborn" crap.) and that action results in a death, then it IS murder.

    I absolutely agree... but where in the article does it say that the act of throwing this newborn in the trash resulted in death?

    Not to blame the parents, but.... actually, I blame the parents.... not for the murder that the kid committed, but for doing a poor job in raising him.

    Yet some of the very same people who think this way about Japan are standing first in line at an AKB48 concert and not thinking that anything is wrong there. They do not recognize nor acknowledge the connection.

    Here we go with the "Thought Police"... now I'm not a fan of AKB or any girl idols, but you can't prevent people from being a fan of a pop idol. You can't control people's thoughts... even if they "like" adolescent girls; as long as they don't act on the emotion, they (AKB fans) have done nothing wrong. If you're gonna blame someone, blame the producers and promoters for portraying those girls in that way. Look at Britney Spears... she was 17 when recorded that "Hit me baby one more time", dancing around in her scantily clad school uniform. Do you think the producers made her do that for the adolescent girl fans?

    More education please... why don't these girls believe in contraceptives? Pregnancy, STD's...

    I see the regular group of posters as always are jumping to the conclusion that the mother killed the baby. I know that abandoning a still-born is irresponsible, but not the same as killing a new-born. Point being, no one knows what really happened.

    Thunderbird: I agree. Fighting back can makes things worse. I admit I was on the other side of the coin. In elementary school, I bullied a kid who tried to fight back, but that just made me pick on him even more because I didn't want my peers to think I was losing to him (Sorry Mark). It wasn't until a few years later, I got picked on by a bully in Junior High and realized how immature bullying was. Enforcement by the school and the bully's parents seem to me the best way to get bullies to understand that it's not right. No magic answer here, but fighting back is not a guarantee.

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians?

    Too much speculation and not enough facts?

    “We have to improve the support system and create an environment in which victims would feel free to talk to somebody about the problem,” the official added.

    What about listening and shutting down agencies which are doing such of practices instead ?

    Obviously, these are not legitimate agencies we're talking about here. So in order to shut them down, they have to find them first. In order to find them, they need to be reported. Thus, "improve the system" to identify the bad agencies...

    If these people booked their flights BEFORE the ban by Trump, then I could see the airline companies refunding the airfare.

    JeffLee: The Chicken tax was initially Lynden Johnson's retaliation of France and West Germany's ban on American chicken. The income from the tariffs imposed on dextrin, potato starch, brandy, AND light trucks were supposed to off-set the loss in export sales of chicken. It was later revealed that Johnson included light trucks in the retaliatory tariff for political gain by answering to the UAW's demand to curtail the strong sales of imported Volkswagen trucks.

    So yes, the Chicken tax was meant to protect the Detroit 3 as you say, and that is exactly why I think it's absurd in this day and age with global trade, AND when Trump points his finger at Japan for allegedly trying to "protect" its auto industry when the US has been doing it since the 60's and continues to do so today.

    Posted in: U.S. President Donald Trump has repeatedly claimed Japan’s auto market is closed. Japan has rejected that claim, saying it does not impose tariffs on U.S. auto imports nor put up discriminatory non-tariff barriers against U.S. cars. Which side has the stronger argument?

    When all is said and done, Trump fails to look at his own country's policies before barking at others. The U.S. has several tariffs in place to tax imports for one reason or another.... one of those reasons being as absurd as any tax out there: the Chicken Tax.

    For better or for worse, I have a feeling that Abe and Trump are going to get along. I think they share some common views... protectionism, xenophobia, male chauvinism, etc. etc. The biggest difference is that one tweets more than the other.
