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.

Terrible thing happening during what should have been a happy celebration. I hope the list of victims don't grow in the following days.

Apple is not the same as it was when Jobs was alive, this is not surprising at all.

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.

I would love to be as important as a famous person dogs so investigations would be also done so quickly for me.

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.

It is a small amount of support but hopefully the beginning of a trend where proper, regulated work from home can become a reality.

Posted in: Will Japanese Olympians be vaccinated ahead of the public? See in context

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.

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.

I don't trust this statement, there has been delays and problems all the way, I can totally see the vaccines stored months while vaccination efforts crawl forward.

Posted in: Recordings reveal WHO's analysis of pandemic in private See in context

Wrong, not just my unqualified opinion at all, just keep using your big words and ignore the reality staring you in the face, its worked up until now hasnt it?

None of your sources support your unqualified opinion. People's opinion about things already debunked even here (such as what the WHO can or not say without proof) are not enough to deny that in general all health workers of the world that use the collaboration that the WHO offers do not consider it "useless trash" but the contrary.

Posted in: Suga, opposition to face off in Diet over science panel controversy See in context

It's not 0. It's not 10. You have 99 Scholars still left to challenge the government, complain, make sure Japan doesn't move an inch from Article 9. Make sure we are as weak as possible. Don't worry nothing is changing.

If a very important decision is left to be done without any justification what do you think would happen if any of the other scientist attack something the government does, even if validly? would the rejected scientists be called back? or will the new dissidents rejected as well until the council is just a meaningless congregation of yes men?

Posted in: We should not be discriminated against because we're women. There's no excuse. I want St. Marianna University to admit the injustice and apologize thoroughly. See in context

Medical schools have their reasons to select male doctors over females (which would disappear with actual, real equality in the workplace in hospitals) so to a certain point it is understandable that they opt for accepting more male students, but even accepting this situation as inevitable (which is not) that still leaves them as wrong for doing it while hiding the bias.

If the school is going to be segregating based on gender and it thinks it is justified then it should do it openly so the students will know their chances.

Posted in: Emergency room overcrowding an ailment local doctor aims to cure See in context

This should be common sense, if your only options are to call an ambulance or wating in pain or fear for a day most people will not hesitate in calling an ambulance, even if its not really necessary. An after hours clinic where people can go and have a simple treatment or an evaluation so they can see if their problems are dangerous its a necessity.

The patients get treatment, the doctors in big hospitals can focus on real emergencies, the doctors running the small after-time clinics make an extra buck for their dedication and the government saves money by dedicating only the necessary amount of resources according to their urgency. How anybody can think this is not necessary?

The police should investigate the JT commenters

JT is nothing special, in any place where news about gropers are commented you will find a lot of people saying that unfortunately running away appears to be the only real defense against a false accusation.

Posted in: New earphones don't block earholes See in context


No one should be listening to music, using their phone or doing anything else distracting while cycling.

In this case I do understand the rule is not that you should avoid music but avoid being distracted or being unable to hear your surroundings. So the same as when driving, hearing music is not bad by itself as long as you can prove you can still hear properly.

Nevertheless, is not clear this earphones count as not blocking your hearing so I don't think the police would be happy with cyclists wearing them.
