昔から「利は元にあり」という言葉があります。これは利益は上手な仕入れから生まれてくるということだと思いま す。まずよい品を仕入れる。しかもできるだけ有利に適正な値で買う。そこから利益が生まれてくる。それを「利は元にあり」と言ったのでしょうが、実際、仕 入れはきわめて大事です。ところが、この「利は元にあり」ということを、ともすれば単に安く買い叩けばよいというように解釈する人があるようです。しか し、決してそうではなく、仕入先を、品物を買って下さるお得意先と同じように大切にしていくことが肝要だと思います。そういう気持がないと、結局は商売は 繁昌しないと言えましょう。

39 percent of respondents who disapprove of the cabinet cited its lack of ability to take action, while 32 percent said they have no hope that its policies will work.

Asked about Ozawa's course of action, 60 percent said he should resign from his post of party secretary general, while 11 percent said he need not resign. 27 percent were undecided.

When asked whether they believed the prime minister's assertion that he had no knowledge of the accounting irregularities by his former secretary, only one percent of respondents said they were fully convinced. 14 percent said they were convinced to a certain extent. 31 percent said they were mainly not convinced, and 49 percent said they were not convinced at all.

Voting begins in Iraqi parliamentary election

Posted by Junichi Kawagoe on 08.2010 News Out of English Newspaper   0 comments   0 trackback
Iraqi voters are casting ballots in a parliamentary election under tight security with 325 seats up for grabs.

More than 500,000 soldiers and police officers have been deployed nationwide as a series of terrorist attacks on polling stations and police were reported ahead of the Sunday poll.

Iraqi police say there have been 3 bombing incidents in the capital, Baghdad, killing 5 and wounding 16.

No major terrorist attack has been reported so far.

The United States plans to begin a pullout of its combat troops, with total withdrawal finishing by the end of next year, if the election concludes without problems.

The election will allow Iraqis to choose a new government that will address the issues of security and the rebuilding effort after the withdrawal of US forces.

The election is contested among Shia Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's State of Law bloc, the secular group Iraqiya that includes minority Sunnis, and the Iraqi National Alliance led by conservative Shia Islamists.

Vote counting will start immediately after the end of balloting, but it is believed that it will take at least several days to announce the result.
