The Yomiuri reported earlier this month about allegations of Sahashi using an employee's fund for his own purposes. It looks like the police have enough evidence to launch a criminal investigation into the embezzlement of those funds. Here's the story from the Asahi Shimbun:
The General Union has posted details of an agreement between G.communication/G.education on their website. As you are aware, ever since NOVA went bankrupt, the General Union has been busy trying to get G.communication to rehire all of the instructors that were fired when G.com took over. It appears that they have succeeded.
Nova's trustees have released a report [PDF] on the state of Nova's assets that gives us a look into the scale of the meltdown. The report is in English and is pretty mundane. There are a few nuggets that caught my eye, however.
