Posted in: COVID vaccines for kids? Strategies around the world See in context

To all you antivaxxers saying "not my kids". Since you have had your say... I also have my say... all my kids will be vaccinated.

Intrusion attempts are very common so I don't know why this needs to be a story? How is this related to the olympics? Your home router has its IP address poked hundreds of times a day... you just don't know it.

The firm was subject to multiple administrative directions by the prefectural and Atami city governments.

Nice excuse

Our only option is Softbank where we live. Speed is ok, but I have issues with the router we are forced to use.

We will go with Starlink when it becomes available.

Posted in: Vaccine chief Kono favorite to become next PM: polls See in context

I think he is the best choice. Not that any of us have a say in that matter! Don't forget he's pushing to phase out fax machines. Kono could be the progressive leader that Japan desperately needs.

@Haaa Nemui

58 year old unvaccinated man.

what was you implying? He was actively trying to get vaccinated but wasn't able to.

Posted in: Fukushima peaches: Worthy of the praise given to them by foreign Olympics teams? See in context

I don't understand the peeling thing. Everything peeled, apples, persimmons, peaches, even grapes. And when it comes to watermelons the waste is very high... only the red flesh is eaten, don't dare go near the white edges.

@Simian Lane

That’s a whole lotta gold they taking with ‘em

I was surprised to learn today that the gold medals are gold plated silver medals. So maybe not so much gold.

I have never heard of heat illness, is that even a real diagnosis?

IOC should have called it a quasi-heatstroke. Hopefully no one becomes quasi-dead.

@snowymountainhell

I found the article you were referring too, that's very bad, should be more widely reported.

Posted in: Electric car lithium demand powers mining revival in UK See in context

Hey guys, sorry I didn't follow up earlier. Yea graphene-aluminium-ion have a lot of advantages over lithium-ion, the only disadvantage seems to be they are heavier. Never know what technology becomes mainstream but this one looks good, and not far away.

Not looking good, I'm guessing we will see over 8000 cases today.

They could just brute force it, lease dozens of commercial A/C units and blow cold air at the athletes. Cool air sinks so it should work in open air stadiums.

Ok, but the future of batteries will be graphene aluminium ion.

I'd like to hear more about the developers. Have they dumped industrial waste on other mountainsides?

Posted in: Death toll from Atami mudslide rises to 18; 12 still missing See in context

So tragic. I hope all bodies will be recovered eventually to bring some closure.

I wonder if there will be any charges laid, seems there may have been criminal negligence involved. We don't hear about the cause of the landslide anymore.

Posted in: Summer setback: COVID deaths and cases rising again globally See in context

@virusrex

Why would anybody have to acquit himself from giving proper advice according to the best available science at the moment? are you under the impression scientists have access to time machines or that situations (like mask shortages) always remain the same?

The problem is that people are not used to seeing real science in action. They think of science as a series of facts written in textbooks (in stone.)

The real strength of science is the possibility for consensus to change when compelling evidence comes to light.

I also would like people to stop criticising politicians when they change their mind, this should also not be a weakness.

Posted in: Japan to issue vaccine passports free of charge See in context

@Pukey2

Great. So when can I get my vaccination?

Have you applied for a ticket? Most cities are vaccinating under 65 year old now. Appointment slots are limited but you should be able to get vaccinated already.

@Northernlife

How about getting the vaccine rollout sorted out first...

That is ridiculous. There is no reason the government can't work on two things at one time.

Posted in: Tokyo's taxi drivers suffer another blow with no Olympic spectators See in context

Yea I feel sorry for the drivers but the olympics were never going to make any of them rich. I think it's time to look at getting out of that business. Margins are so low, costs high. Eventually they will be replaced by driverless services.

Posted in: Massive soil mound on slope believed to have worsened Atami mudslide See in context

I wonder if the annual reshuffle of staff in city governments is a contributing factor? Seems like the earth mound was a known problem but nothing was actually done about it. Let the next person deal with it.
