Posted in: Single HPV shot enough for young women: WHO experts See in context

What is this nonsense about discrimination in the comments? HPV kills more women than men, so if you don't have enough vaccines for everybody girls come first. The vaccine has already proved to reduce deaths on women, if one dose does this effectively there is no point in wasting more doses to get the same result.

Fascinating news, can't wait to see how useful this technology can become. A lot of problems on the brain could be solved if this prove to be safe.

Posted in: Man arrested for robbing same internet cafe twice See in context

So internet cafes are easier to rob than convenience stores? maybe the clerks need to have some extra training about how to deal with this situation.

can I trust this? 

It is not like it is a scientific report but I guess that is what kids think these days, girls do not want to have flower shops to tend funerals.

Posted in: Ex-nursery school head indicted over 5-year-old boy's death in bus See in context

Terrible story to read, can't believe people taking care of children could have so little care, anything that can mean a child may lost their lives merits a couple of extra checks, it doesn't even takes that much time.

It is a shame a global pandemic was necessary for this delayed development, this has been needed for decades already.

Posted in: Woman attacked by daughter’s ex-boyfriend on Feb 14 dies in hospital See in context

Terrible situation, the girl is going to need a lot of mental health support from now on because of the terrible actions of a boy. I hope she can soon recover from this at least partially.

It is nice that Mr Suto took on himself to do something about the problem, on the other hand it is very sad that the need for something like this is still present.

Good that everybody was rescued alive, and I hope all get soon discharged and make a full recovery.

Posted in: Australia battles spread of Japanese encephalitis See in context

Wait until mosquitos can overwinter in Honshu and you will see a real epidemic of vector borne diseases in Japan, not only Japanese encephalitis (young people are not being vaccinated against it anymore), but many other as well. Australia is just a warning about what is to come because of climate change.

On the other hand, trying to blame this on COVID vaccines? really? that is desperate even for antivaxxers, ONE case of encephalitis do not explain an outbreak of the very different syndrome of encephalitis, you need to be totally ignorant about medicine to pretend they are related.

Posted in: How pet cancer data sheds light on human cancers and speeds development of new treatments See in context

I was just reading about something related on pets and infectious diseases, it is incredible how much can be found out about common diseases by trying to treat animals. It is not surprising that many researchers on human diseases have also veterinary degrees.

Posted in: Tokyo changes age limit for kids going into opposite sex’s bath at hot springs and sento See in context

Saw this coming from 10 years ago, times change and attitudes about nudity as well, maybe in the future things will go back and sexuality and nudity will not be automatically assumed as equal.

Posted in: Study offers reassurance on COVID shots, women's periods See in context

I guess stereotypes are born from a reason, but it had to be men overreacting and making such a fuzz over a delay of a period. There are many women that never have a regular period, others that get a delay if they drink one extra cup of coffee in the morning. Making this normal thing an argument is just proving once again that men ignore even basic women health.

This should have been done from the very beginning, the first measure before thinking what else could be done.

Posted in: Peace Boat goes virtual with A-bomb survivors' stories amid pandemic See in context

How come people keep missing the point completely?

This is not a revenge boat or poor Japan boat, its purpose is to avoid nuclear weapons from being used anywhere on the planet. A crime that humanity did to itself not to be repeated ever again.

Meaningless bravado that will amount to nothing at the end, the issue is important and should be discussed like that instead of putting too much attention to this.

Posted in: Golden Week travel begins despite pleas from governors to stay home See in context

How about a "Go to nowhere" campaign? Where transportation, highway fees, etc. get a nice extra charge so people find more expensive to travel during the state of emergency? Either people stay home or there is an extra amount of cash to support the hospitals treating covid patients.

Posted in: Taiwan envoy hopes Japan will play greater role in regional stability See in context

Taiwan feels desperate in this, obviously is in Japan best interests to support it, but at this point I don't think there is anything it can offer, if the worst come to happen Japan will give little more than declarations of how "regrettable" things are.

Posted in: Opposition parties criticize Suga over results of summit with Biden See in context

Opposition criticizing Suga is like fishing on a barrel, but I haven't heard anything that they would do differently to correct the many problems of the current government. Put forward a real platform and criticism will be the cherry on top.

I can already see the excuses that are going to be used for this, a slap in the face for the people waiting for months for a vaccine probably even with a smile.

Posted in: Myanmar junta cracks down on celebrations of new shadow gov't See in context

This seems like a problem that will keep red hot for long time, the worst thing is that this is going to be repeated endlessly since interventions from other countries are never done with the best interest of the actual victims of the violence.
