@John-San

In 2011 AC companies were made by emission legislation to add a chip to the software that adjust setting for set period when the electrical grid is overloaded. etc the fan still now but the cooling system is turn off for 15 periods. I wonder if this emission regulation is due to the doubling in deaths ?

I noticed this with our AC units. Wondering where I can read more about this legislation? Anything we can do to avoid this?

If these cool the air down… where do you suppose the heat goes? What junk.

Japan really should get serious about insulating their homes, otherwise just suffer in the heat and don't complain about it.

How about de-escalating the situation? Western sanctions are making things worse. It was sanctions that caused WW2.

Sad story, the court should have awarded damages to "send a message."

I wonder how much train drivers make per hour?

Deducting ¥85 for 2 minutes lost work would be about ¥2500/h. But then they paid ¥56 for 1 minute which would be about ¥3300/h... so which is it?

LOL I do not recommend it, unless seeking deeper isolation. The country side is nice to visit.

I @koiwaicoffee totally agree.

It is very hard to make friends, from my experience, living in rural Japan. Maybe it would be easier if we lived in a city?

I've been in Japan for 6 years now and have only made a handful of friends, most have left the countryside; moved back to the city, or their home countries.

Even my wife lamented how hard it is to make friends with Japanese people. Everyone seems too busy.

Growing your own food is not efficient land use... the food might taste better to you because you grew it... but that type of farming does not scale up. Luckily Big Agriculture is already good at maximising yields.

Sounds innovative but about 4 years too late. Payments are working well through apps like PayPay, and Apple Pay. No need to put insecure fingerprint readers on the card itself.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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