Power Harassment in Japan
I can recall the call from my friend on June 2 when she was crying profusely due to harassment at work. Earlier that day, the manager of her unit asked her to resign stating that one of the deputy managers didn't like her. On being asked what exactly her mistake was, she was told not to question their authority and not to waste their time.

Every time this was brought this to their attention, they would get furious and retaliate. ... market research, surveys and trends

The game is called Hangman. The point of the game is to save a person from being hanged by guessing the correct letters to ... market research, surveys and trends

WORK had become a nightmare for a young secretary named Rena Weeks. True, the law firm that employed her had a prestigious name and offices in over two dozen countries. But she worked for a man who, according to her claim, would not stop grabbing and touching her. The humiliating assaults were punctuated by crude, suggestive speech. Years ago, women in situations like this had little recourse—except maybe to quit. 'Her word against his' would have been the judgment of management. And even those inclined to believe the woman's side of the story would probably have shrugged off the problem by saying, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
