Posted in: Ruling party seeks ¥100 trillion stimulus to battle coronavirus See in context

First of all, please order to close the Pachinko parlors where the cluster will be the next place to Japan increases infected people. The gamblers don't think about health, more than than money they've spent to get more...and lose. Who will get profit to make more people sick, the gamblers, no! And I wonder who are the people who will be affected to meet those addicted guys, somewhere.

Hope the money is going to the people who want to help medical personnel fighting every moment to decrease this epidemic virus, specially the hospitals and anti-virus or vaccines laboratories (universities and companies) + the people who are working hard to make more masks and hygiene products. They can't be volunteers.

Posted in: There is no need to panic. There will be no interruptions to the nation's steady supplies of food and there are sufficient stocks. See in context

Individually not panicked, but collective panicked people in super market to buy toilet paper, tissue-paper, disinfectant alcohol makes me uncomfortable this pandemic news here and there on tv to let the crowd there before doors and gates open, could be also cluster case.

Posted in: We can't afford to hire new graduates as we have no work for them to do due to the coronavirus. See in context

Why companies or any incorporations on employment just think of what is today, no tomorrow vision, no yesterday reflection. The capitalism we're living TODAY life means still unclear to results or prospects!

Posted in: Governments grapple with virus border closures, lockdowns See in context

All of those warnings, and alarming procedures, maybe late to stop what is spreading as it happened with many epidemic/infectious including HIV diseases few decades ago, we are much less vulnerable to them(micro-germs/ virus). It's a changing time to we stay calm and think more about our health and isolate ourselves from "clusters", not a better word for this phenomena but I think it isn't just to be in the crowd it'll infect, more I feel is to stay at that space long time to be completely affected. Governments are noticing not to be shuttered inside with less pure air, things like that. This is my opinion and I don't find myself fake news of those social medias...It is a period of time we need to insight ourselves to be safe, the sky is much blue now and less pm 25 in the air, more hygiene to be taken care everywhere, things are changing, one side is terrifying but many filthy filthy stuffs going to be exterminated...

Posted in: Scrapping cherry blossom parties like taking hugs away from Italians: Koike See in context

Hanami is an outdoor event where it doesn't create "cluster" spaces and drinking (alcoholic beverage) which is disinfectant to virus or germs. It is fun to anyone to spend time under sakura blossom trees to feel spring season coming around the corner. Just to refrain too much drinking to touch others with hugs and kisses.

Posted in: WHO pandemic declaration won't change Tokyo Olympics plan: Suga See in context

The sequence should be IOC with WHO to decide the Olympic Games how and when to adjust the schedule or any other programs, JOC and Tokyo's and Japan's govt. to follow what was decided then to take less internal problems. If Koike or Abe want to do something against what was decided Japan will lose a lot this special world's sport event to "cancelled" as it happened in ww2, a next to next finally Tokyo again...

Posted in: Couple at center of Abe cronyism scandal found guilty over fraud See in context

It's only one of Abe's cronyism scandal found, they will be punished to pay fine or go to prison but the main person can stay there governing one of the longest period under LDP party administration and free of any accuse even using the budgeted figures to those doughty scandals, that's abnormal from the citizen position and normal to person who can stay there because no one can replace him, from me a special single word, insane!!

Posted in: Approval rate for Abe cabinet marks sharpest fall in 2 years See in context

Many difficult issues in world economy, only in Japan the nuclear plants disaster still going on, the natural calamities of typhoons/floods/earthquakes intensely coming year by year, this momentum of panic from COVID-19 and presence of DT to be re-elected. Hmm, not a surprise up-to-date consensus...It isn't this Abe cabinet to be approved by rate but disapproval rate for Abe scandals never being disclosed , not a correct rate to any sane citizen.

Posted in: Coronavirus infection cases spread further in Japan See in context

I don't know why people have to use masks like this: to avoid virus be infiltrated the respiratory organs or not to transmit diseases to others. Off course most are wearing masks not to be transmitted or to avoid the virus be infiltrated. As much I can see from the news it is unavoidable that way, as professionals also were affected. My point of wear a mask is: spray alcohol at the edges of the mask before wearing it or just apply direct alcohol around the nose and mouth before wearing the mask...Isn't that working better anti-virus?

C'mon, it's not appropriated to express the headline of this column like this. It isn't Hollywood movies where Titanic disaster or transformation of passenger to be a zombie all of them will be due to infection. I worked on board of ships several times and I think a word can explain, it's "resort" what has couple of meanings.

Posted in: Abe denies false statements over party scandal as opposition ups pressure See in context

LDP to have women lawmakers in the party I'm not against and I support more women to be politicians. The problem is when 2 women lawmakers of LDP highlighted every hour on TV news, knowing of all those scandals happening in Abe administration and creating more scandals to show face as politician? Come on, ladies, you show much ugly faces associated to their dirty mind using LDP as a shield. I feel nausea to see their faces, switch to other channel to see same faces again, that's suck!

Posted in: Japan ushers in 2020 See in context

New Year, fresh year and this rush hours of people going to temples to devote wealth (more money in the pocket and thicker wallet) but forgetting that health is much essential than wealth. New age of cashless and AI to possess more areas at jobs, I just want people to ease the mind and find what is luckiness and the real sequel of happiness, same routine of every new year in that rush, hmm... Happy New Year of 2020, anyway!

Posted in: What is your mood usually like during the time between Christmas and the New Year? For example, do you feel flat or is it a quiet time of reflecting on the past year? Or something else? See in context

Living long time in Japan I can see the changeable decorations of Christmas tree to kadomatsu of New Year in one night. Christmas reminds me more the year that is going to past and New Year 2-3 days of relaxing time in home, thinking forward the year I'll spend and make some differences of bad/wrong things I did, to visualize better image for the year arrived and going on.

Posted in: Probe into casino bribery case widens; pachinko operator raided See in context

I like casinos and hate Pachinko parlors, the 24 hours of clean/clear and safe with securities of a palace image and an unhealthy smoky tiny space of too much noise...Corruption sounds where it sound, and not sound when the law is upper the power of the legislative one, not only of this Japan of Abe but all the linkages around him. "Sakura family" is a good example, also a tendency of a country going to poverty creates tricky back-up from those main politicians governing Japan.

Posted in: Japan to boost fire prevention after Okinawa castle, Notre Dame fires See in context

Japan to boost fire prevention is one thing and UNESCO restrictions to preserve traditional rules is another thing. All those modern devices to avoid disasters and UNESCO in the same position,? It's better say; fried egg in oily water or a boiled egg fried. What's the merit to be an UNESCO heritage?

I feel Abe's words aren't potentially strong to be potential. China needs Japan industry not his lip services.

Posted in: Abe says he is not thinking about 4th term as LDP head See in context

I feel much relieved when he really don't go further Abe administration the 4th one. Give more opportunity to younger LDP leader to show well what is this constitutional reform, that means to be more appropriated to Japan's policy, this constitution created by the "others" to abolish that horrible Great Imperial Japan of military forces policy done till end of ww2. If he really want to do the constitutional reform to Japan in his 2 years to be independent of US forces here tell much clear the truth, why JDF must be military. All those scandals he created at his governing I don't go with him, a new leader should do a good explanation to all Japanese citizen understand, not him. I'm just sick of him and his policy of "lipstick"...

Posted in: Japan to slash tax revenue forecast as trade war hits exports See in context

From the first period of this Abe govt. X 3 times means his reputation and good-face to many Japanese believing/ trusting him created much more poverty. Future Japan's history will show how this dude used his Abenomics of raising tax and increasing national bonds made Japan decreasing to sink. That's shame on him!

Posted in: What are some suggestions to avoid overeating or getting too drunk during the Christmas-New Year party season? See in context

Christmas-New Year party season? Not in Japan. Better say, Bonenkai and Shinnenkai. Some companies pay to you to get together (especially to drink), traditional otsukaresama and ganbaroukai. There are good meaning on that but to avoid too much drinking served from other co-workers to feel happy the moment or you'll find at the hospital or police station next morning.

Posted in: Historical documents show Japanese gov't role in providing sex slaves See in context

With this abundance of information here/there by media and SNS I just want to say the lapse of time demonstrates that history shows cruelty on women side. Even some Japanese women were sex slaves...That period of time was much cruel when people think well what was that "colonized regions" called Asia.

Posted in: Japan considers withholding tax system on casino winnings by foreigners See in context

AI (artificial Inteligence) calculator will easily resolve it, just to display in consumption tax 10%. The issues will go more to greedy people involved in corruption, bribery, "sontaku", "inpei" and something else, this government of Mr. Abe I don't how far he is going, as much as Casino was approved by congress to him. I want to work at one of those Casino, probably the closest, Nagasaki...

I don't believe it could happen the same to other potential countries, China, India, Russia, USA, Western European countries(?) most need those technical /engineering filtering Japan has and I don't think it is not only from the nuke plants, I'm sure.
