It amazing how nature can bounce back so quickly after a major disturbance like a Storm etc. Last year when covid hit us, there was pictures from verious countries showing us smog, pollution, etc before covid hit and then 1 month after covid hit us and we all went into lockdown, that 90% of the smog and pollution stopped, which begs the question how has lockdown affected nature? has it helped the environment?

IF, Mr Kelly is given a light sentence, will the amount of time spent in a detention centre be taken into account? thus reducing any more time spent in a detension centre?

Posted in: Supercomputer shows doubling masks offers little help preventing viral spread See in context

A better way of helping stopping the spread of this virus would be to focus on cleaning all 'touch points" like door handles, credit cards, money, reduce contact where people go into a shop to buy goods touching food to examin it ot look at the packaging labels, yes masks help, but this virus is spread by other means.

i wounder how many people will now be lulled into some sort of false security in thinking the great wall will protect us, so they wont evacuate, the wall get breached in the next tsunami so greater loss of life, if the defence was lower, people might respond to a tsunami warning quicker, as they know they are in danger. As for the wall right now, jees, thats ugly,

Posted in: The man who saves forgotten cats in Fukushima's nuclear zone See in context

Firstly what this chap is doing is very commendable and he should get a subsidy for feeding all of these cats, etc, "He is looking after 41 others in his home and another empty building on his property". ive been in a few houses that have pets, but in his case all of those cat? jees, that house must stink.

IF. he was to take materials from another deralict house to fix his, would he, or could he be arested for theft? could he occupy another house as its been abbandoned?

Back in the 50-60's Nuclear power was advertised as cheap and safe, HA! far from it, its expensive to build and decommission, the cost to the environment is beyond belief.

But it was also scrambling to secure enough special syringes needed to extract six full doses from each vial 

dont worry by then the UK will have vaccinated a large proportion of the population, so I think we can sell Japan some of our surplus stock.

Posted in: Website maps complaints of neighborhoods with noisy children See in context

As another thought, when this guy developed this web site for noise complaints, people have used it to seek out quiter places, has this effected the selling or buying prices in that area? it could make a place more atractive or less atractive.

Posted in: Website maps complaints of neighborhoods with noisy children See in context

Sociaty has become, or is becoming less tolerant everyday. I live close to a hospital, although the ambulace crews have to use the sirens, they use them sparingly in the built up areas especially at night time, ( thank goodness) as every one will be a wake 24/7. so the guy whos developed this web site, I wounder how many people have complained about the noise from there local hospital traffic, or police station, or fire station.

personaly i think its no brainer, you weigh up the slight discomfort from the vaccine against getting covid, yes we all know that most cases its a bad flue symptoms to the extream of its terminal. I would rather put up with a bit of discomfort for a short while.

Moroyama, Hakone, Saitama, Akiruno City, they are quite away from each other so I dont think this was a chance meeting, it sounds like it was planned, either way its very sad when children of this age comit suicide they are just starting out on the path of life.

Posted in: COVID vaccine for elderly to be distributed based on population proportion See in context

With the Japanese government selecting a few places who will get the vacine first, this meens other area wont be seing any for of injections soon, this begs the question will these people in that area ( the ones that have been left out) will the vote differently next time around there is a election?

Posted in: COVID vaccine for elderly to be distributed based on population proportion See in context

But Kono said Sunday the vaccine will only be available in limited areas and among limited age groups during that month due to a supply shortage.

Poor organisation i wounder?

city officials participated in a dry run for the COVID-19 vaccine rollout at a public health center in the western Japan city

For goodness sake just get on with it, doctors and nurses who have been giving injections dont need dummy runs, they just need the vaccine, materials and people.

I am supprised that Japan has not developed a vaccine of its own there is some very bright scientists in Japan.

Here in the UK even bumberling Boris has managed to organise vacine centres around the Uk and we have already dished out 17.2 million jabs.

I am shure that there is a lot of other museums, tourist attractions that are struggeling for financial help as well, who should get preferential priority support? any? all? I think its worth keeping and supporting these disaster museums, this covid pandemic is only going to have a temporary effect on tourism, once people get there jab and flights start again, people will return.

The words clean and safe dont spring to mind, (Chernobyl and Fukushima) radio active material take thousends of years to be come safe, and there is thousands of tonnes of stuff to dispose of, let alown the tonnes of water at Fukashima. The UK has scrapped one of the nuclear power stations that had been started to be built.

I hope the cops check his mobile phone record, lets see if he was using his phone at the time, next, if he blanked out it could be a sign of epperlectic fit, if this is the case a specialist doctor will be able to find this out, if hes epperlectic, he needs to be banned from the road untill the doctor see fit.

Very bizarre, very strange, I hope he returns ALL of the shoes back to the schools, then the cops can fine him, and give some sort of compansation to the schools for the inconvenience that he has caused.
