Posted in: Five aging nuclear reactors will be decommissioned, but where should their 26,820 tons of radioactive waste be stored? See in context

Citizen. To my knowledge Japan has never consciously dumped nuclear waste into the Pacific Ocean. Water from Fukushima has leaked out, and Teppo would dearly like to release more.

Posted in: During the Tokyo Olympics, we are expecting serious traffic congestion particularly on the day of the opening ceremony. We believe telework will have a significant impact in easing traffic congestion and commuter crowding. See in context

Genius politician, he discovered about potential traffic congestion on the day of Olympic opening ceremony suddenly and his discovery lead him to the magic formula less traffic = less traffic congestion.

We are in good hands, let's hope it will continue this way...

Like usual, in the pacific ocean, dumping of nuclear waste is an every day routine for the Japanese nuclear village

However, another obvious error is to take radiation readings not on the ground but in the air!!!! Not being avians,the readings should be given at ground level to have any true meaning....,

This has been the Japanese trick from day 1 to hide the real levels, caught many time on TV, they always pointed their (highly directional) scintillator detector either toward the sky or keep it horizontal on a stand, parallel to the ground to be sure to never pick what has been deposited.

Demand for nuclear shelters, purifiers surges as N Korea tension mounts

The United States ordered the USS Carl Vinson carrier strike group to sail to waters off the Korean peninsula in response to mounting concern over the reclusive state's nuclear and missile programs.

Both side are responsible for the tension, and doing provocative action AKA "adding oil to the fire" will only result in chaos, but as long as the terror campaign is diverting from local scandals it will be spread like fire.

Posted in: 2 elderly women jump to their deaths on rail tracks See in context

Why is the nation not deeply ashamed that elderly people are doing this? Why not ask 'why' as opposed to 'how can we stop them from doing it'?

Legit question here, by looking at some comments, one could say maybe selfishness and not being disturb in your commuting time are most important than empathy and compassion nowadays. rather sad, politician also saying "elderly should hurry up and die" is probably not helping that society to be open on the others...

It is always nice to see a country (France) with a democratic system which account every single citizen vote as 1 vote and not weighted by any location or big electors bias...at least each voters in France are directly electing their president. Hopefully voters will now do everything to discard the FN fascist party.

As long as people stand on the hill for 10 minutes with a helmet and a dust mask, there are no health effects, the operator said.

Thanks for confirming that there are health effect if you stand there more than 10 minutes, definitely not the place you want to live, radiations are poisonous and can kill you based on the level you are exposed, recommended only for those who are enjoying to breath hot particles.

We are an immigration nation, but the fact remains- Australian workers must have priority for Australian jobs," he said. "We'll no longer allow 457 visas to be passports to jobs that could and should go to Australians."

Autralia has been recently in the news only for its far-right wing shift, certainly not longer a country on my wish list to visit.

Posted in: What do you think of the new Japan Today design? See in context

Like many others, I hate it, it is overbusy , too many bold face fonts everywhere with big thick red lines, too hard to read and decode at a "glance", you need to read everywhere, already having headache after 5 mn here and feel tired and just giving up, the comment box at the top while the default is "sort by oldest" is obviously a lack of common sense in the new layout, for me: 1) stop using bold everywhere 2) use thinner red lines to separate 3) put back some graphics in the +- votes, now looks so cheap and do not reload the whole page 4) decrease the space between the text lines in the comment section because right now, every single comment is taking twice the space as it should therefore we need to scroll like in 2000. but at first ....fix the home page, now it is a mess

The problem with Toshiba is you do not know which account book you need to read to understand about the company and it is normal, it is made like this in purpose....seriously, this company seems to be just an opaque corporate pipeline for transferring & distribute public money so it will be saved by the govt, like TEPCO, no doubt about it, it is needed.

Posted in: United faces public-relations fiasco over dragged passenger See in context

UA could have raised the voucher price as some were ready to take the offer but not for $800, instead, they decided to pickup randomly this passenger (a random that will pick up a no white guy if possible) and drag him off so their own employees can seat down, so disgusting. and if you read what the CEO wrote about it, it is even more disgusting thought not surprising. I will certainly never put a single foot inside in one of their planes.
