At least spectators are not allowed. God knows how many lives were saved from heat strokes due to this particular covid restriction.

Moving to evening will not help much. Tokyo Olympics in mid Japanese summer were deemed to be torture for athletes from day one. Thanks greedy broadcasters for that.

BTW, FDA in USA didn’t fully license any covid vaccine yet. So as WHO. Covid vaccines are classified now for emergency use. Is it an emergency for a young healthy athlete to get vaccinated? I don’t think so.

Childish demands. Most of the countries shamed their flags a number of times during their history.

Good idea. I trust delivery in Japan 100%. In any other country - for sure not.

Maybe China is preparing another one. So they don’t need anyone visiting the labs to gather evidence for the source of the next pandemic.

Posted in: Olympic opening ceremony director fired for Holocaust joke in 1998 See in context

Funny that “Let's play Holocaust” phrase is slightly aligned with what IOC is doing by locking up the athletes during the pandemic in the olympic village with paper houses where they can’t escape from, forced to compete with each other under the burning sun of Japanese summer…

Sure. Metaphors, jokes, double-meanings and sarcasm are prohibited… Just in case if some square-headed dude didn’t get it and will make a campaign/movement on Twitter.

Posted in: WHO leader says virus risk inevitable at Tokyo Olympics See in context

This time I agree about vaccines sharing. While the vaccines are not fully licensed it doesn’t make sense to inoculate everyone, but rather make sure that the vulnerable 10% in each country can get protected first.

I think its just about right sentence for this type of crime. Not too much, not too little. The lesson for kids here is that sometimes its cheaper, simpler, healthier and faster to admit wrongdoing, get your punishment and move on.

I am curious when better vaccines, more efficient to new variants, will be available, when pharmas sell all the old ones?

Posted in: Internet misinformation fans COVID vaccine hesitancy among Japanese young people See in context

The vaccines are still in emergency only list, they are not fully licensed almost anywhere including WHO. Why should young healthy people take it?

It seems this situation could be easily predicted (and was predicted) by meteorologists a few days in advance, the governments should have issued evacuation instructions. Instead of apologizing for negligence they blame the climate change.

Just make 3rd type of games, so we will have: Olympics, Paralympics and Druglympics. While the first two are basically boring pish, the third one will be smashing. Lots of world records will be broken in the first year.

Posted in: Bezos leaves enduring legacy as he steps away as Amazon CEO See in context

Amazon wiped out all the small bookstores and even towns of stores, dragged employment to worst than 3rd world conditions, and concentrated all that wealth to one person. It's the dystopian nightmare writ large

Its a bit childish to blame one man or one company. Most of us chose this type of future and paid for it.

Posted in: Asian coal plant drive threatens climate goals: report See in context

I am sure China is determined to burn all its coal as fast as possible and nothing will stop them. One thing can be done is if other countries can stop providing them with their natural resources and stop buying their products.

Posted in: Australia battles several clusters in new pandemic phase See in context

I think, at this stage, it is a bit of overreaction. Wouldn’t it be enough to vaccinate a vulnerable part of population (10%-15%) and then just relax? Why need to reach herd immunity with experimental vaccines which are approved only for emergency use? For example, UK has about 50% fully vaccinated people and covered all the vulnerable groups long time ago. And we can see that rising number of cases seems have no impact on number of deaths.

Funny thing is that at my current job in Japan, unlike other countries where I worked before, I can’t easily go to the office on weekends. If I do that too many times they will force me to do some extra medical checks and possibly even reduce my pay rate.

Posted in: No time to waste, warns Japanese climate activist See in context

She's not a scientist and has no way of assessing whether what she's told is true or not.

Exactly. We need to listen about this topic from somebody serious (like physics Nobel winner) and neutral enough to be sure he/she is not receiving profits from ‘climate catastrophe’.

Posted in: No time to waste, warns Japanese climate activist See in context

Japan was the sixth-biggest contributor to global greenhouse emissions in 2017

Maybe its the 6-th biggest, but contributes to only 3% of the emissions. The thing is, until burning is the cheapest way to produce energy, these movements will have only one result: more things will be made in China.
