When the CEO of Unocal retired about 20 years ago, he got a retirement package valued at about half a billion US dollars. Does he care more about the public welfare than his own welfare? Will the CEOs of the oil and coal companies do what needs to be done out of the kindness of their hearts?

That’s a lot of picking. Who’s crazy enough to pull 60,000 fruit? That stuff will go bad quick.

That's a lot of persimmons to be stolen . . . probably a lot of thieves made off with . . . domestic crime or international?

Lot of talk. As usual.

Just do it. Prove that change will actually be done. Don’t worry about empty vows.

Still it’s somewhat admirable @falseflagsteve that you maintained a consistent, unwavering stance throughout. What is a bit frightening is how anyone, like you, not in lockstep is being vilified? Good for you. Stand your ground in the face of bullying.

It will be nice for all of us when an even greater number are vaccinated… so perhaps then some of these self appointed, annoyitalls can finally go silent about it and move on to find something else to fault the masses for?

I don’t think they have enough men “working” in that one area.

They should bring in at least 69 more guys to stand around and look busy.

There is no shortage of energy in Europe. It's the prices which are wrong. They need to be made affordable by increasing production.

Very impressive result from Japan. It looks like they will be one of the top nations in world rugby in the very near future.

The wholesale price is a lot more than ¥1 per persimmon. They ripen very quickly unless in cold storage.

In our location there are many farmers living in big houses, driving expensive cars and sending their children abroad for education. Never seen a poor farmer here.

We like persimmons.

We are asked to watch out for those types of thieves. People also stealing the oysters.

"There's a concern to maintain the dignity of the office," Hardman said

Hate to be the one to point this out, but the queen is simply a human born into extreme privilege that included forcing people to bestow dignity upon her family. There is no inherent dignity in the office.

@kurisupisu

I have yet to see any practical energy storage solution for solar and wind power that can be scalable globally. If we did, Europe would not be having an energy crisis right now.

And what about a energy transmission solution to go along with it?

For example China's Inner Mongolia region has enough wind energy density to meet all their electricity needs. But they can't effectively transmit that energy to their coastal cities where 90% of their population lives. So they are forced to build the bulk of their wind turbines offshore near the coasts which have much less wind.

One solution that they are experimenting with is to use the plentiful and excessive wind energy from Inner Mongolia to creat green hydrogen and transport it to their cities for use as part of a hydrogen economy.

But then problems arise becuase Inner Mongolia does not have a lot of water sources. Then there is the issue of transporting hydrogen itself, which is difficult to handle.

Poor farmer. - “North” Americans @vanityofvanities from Canada, through the U.S’s “New England”, Texas and Mexico have a wide variety of persimmons native to the continent. Some are sweet, some are bitter and need to be dried or cooked the be eaten. The waxy skin and big pits can put some off. Like teaching Japanese children to enjoy a variety of foods, persimmons are an acquired taste.

Get a noisy dog.

Set up a dog house or run in the middle of your orchard.

I personally agree with dogs or CCTVs installed. Yet farmers may be reluctant if the solutions are more costly than the economic damages (worth 3 million yen in this case above). I'm afraid that thieves are fully aware of this dilemma, targeting something of moderate values lest police get serious.

Vaccines are not the only reason we are in this position, their effectiveness is limited and are not a cure. Herd immunity from past infections is already included. We never had it so bad her compared to many Western nations due to better overall health, low obesity rate and less close contact in daily lives. These are things I pointed out all along and was ridiculed by many here though I have been proved correct as I was about the Olympics being safe.

JA might have given the farmer 1 yen for each fruit so 60,000 yen loss…

Poor guy. Divroce on the horizon I would think.

BTW since Jordan Peterson got roped into this topic (somehow):

Writing on Twitter, the controversial professor told his followers he didn’t have enough antibodies to prevent reinfection, necessitating a good old dose of the vaccine.

While he has never expressed mistrust in vaccinations or claimed that coronavirus is not real, his politics are part of a right-wing political playbook that often involves anti-vax views.

Unfortunately although a lot of what Peterson talks about is interesting his writing is easily co-opted by 'other causes'.
