Posted in: 4 die in fire suppression system accident in Tokyo parking garage See in context

A fire suppression system designed to protect property/cars from damage but leathal for humans is not the best choice for a condominium car park. And accidentally triggered? Should not have your life in jeopardy doing your job, shouldn't it have been disabled while the work was being done? Health and safety rules might have prevented this disaster.

Posted in: Fukushima locals criticize government for tone-deaf tritium mascot See in context

It's not cute, funny, it's insulting. What on earth are these people thinking? After 10 years, being used as propaganda for the Olympics. Treated as almost an embarrassment I'm angry and I don't live in a emergency house ment to last 2 years. Nor am I trying to rebuild my life and Buisness. It' just shows how in touch with the population the government are.

Would have saved more face by cancelling this shimozol a year ago. 98 days to go and floating the "idea" of pulling the plug? Bet Suga is overseas when that happens.

Posted in: Olympics 'difficult' after virus spikes, Japan medical group warns See in context

So experts who say "not a good Idea" are completely ignored in order to bolster the egos of old men who have achieved nothing whith their long lives being paid by tax payers. The most expensive summer games in history with no foreign spectators, Atherletes on lock down, then told to leave after their event. The decision making is myopic and totally focussed on the personal interests of a few. But that's what feudalism is about.

What happened to that shaking bueacatic who did drink puddle water from Fucashima on TV early on in the disaster? Aso can as always say it but as always worm his way out of actually doing it.

Kobayashi, 47, then posted on his blog on March 30 a photo of an envelope showing the pair's names and postal address, with a comment saying that demanding an answer by sending an unsolicited letter was "very aggressive and malicious."

He doesn't seem to understand he is a public servant! So in his mind asking your government representative a question is aggressive and malicious, how do these clowns get elected? Ah it's an LDP member.

Posted in: Some medical experts unconvinced about holding Tokyo Olympics See in context

What a mess, the IOC need the lucrative income the Japanese government don't want to be seen to have failed, the Athletes are not really welcome and must leave after their event. Medical experts are alarmed at the prospect. And 80% of Japanese people want the whole thing cancelled. Other then some people/companies collecting tax payer money I fail to see what the benefit is. Moderator: Please repost, replacing "loose" with the correct word.

Posted in: Cherry blossoms' early bloom due to climate change, say experts See in context

The government should urge the cherry blossoms to align with the start of the school/ fiscal year. It's unconstitutional to be out of step with normal culture.

It's funny that the best educated apparently having a "Special" university on their CV. Get a lucrative government job, and them like a peeckock display their stupidity and expect to be given deference due to their position. Sorry not going to happen. The whole lot couldn't hold down a job picking up rubbish, and that's how they should be viewed.

Posted in: Labor ministry employee power harassed by his own power harassment counselor See in context

Labor ministry, a tittle not a actual responsibility. When you need to prop up your sence of self worth (you have none) bully people probably smarter then you and begrudge their smiles and happy life. Must be nice to have the power to make others as miserable as yourself. Job done. We are all miserable for coming under your orbit.

Posted in: Climate change will deepen rich-poor global divide, top economists warn See in context

Climate change has very little to do with rich people wanting more money, greed and a deranged sence of self worth, justified by gaining more wealth at the cost of everyone else. When their houses slip into the sea then we will see the trickle down effect as they ask me for a tent, I have a blue plastic sheet and a box of tissues.

Akimoto received a paper bag containing 3 million yen in cash in a parliament members' office building and said, "Thank you for everything," when he later met the firm's officials, according to the prosecutors

And he pleads not guilty? I bet my empty paper bag there are millions of paper bags in the rubbish everyday from government offices.

They must be highly educated people, ha. They have I’m guessing no family, no real friends apart from co-workers to spend time with. And apart from issuing urges that they don’t follow anyway, what do they do? My tax yen is really well spent.

Posted in: Filipino in Japan forms labor union for overseas workers See in context

Unless the union leader is a high level Nippon Kaigi member there is no chance of having any sway. Go on strike! They don't care just import more workers and deport those on strike. The department of Labour, are a buffer for companies. They squash any complaints. Unions are not allowed to be independent of government control. Pretty sad but pretty true!

Still don’t understand how young Burmese security forces can shoot their families, uncles aunties, cousins, brothers, sisters. It’s obvious the Military takeover is not welcome, but they are intent on power even if it involves killing those they want power over? At the end of the day a group of old men in uniform will claim success as they stand over a country splattered with dead.

Posted in: Japan gov't long-term debt to top ¥1,000 trillion See in context

Doesn't sound good! The whole money thing is so convoluted. I have a house money comes in money goes out. It's pretty simple. I don't have debt that exceeds the houses income? People say it's ok because the debt is 50% Japanese or so depending on who you ask? That doesn't excuse the massive level of debt. Or the massive growing level of poverty with in Japan.

It’s just a herb? Why is it such a fuss? The “dealer “ who obviously was at the top of his game waited outside a train station? Now that’s an arrest worth boasting about? Think the YouTube people would serve a better purpose wandering around banging sticks together warning of fires. If they can be head above the tv.

Posted in: Kelly's trial increasingly focusing on Nissan-Renault rift See in context

Kelly, an American, was arrested with former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn in November 2018 

it’s now 2021, it takes 3years to go to trail?

My only goal was to protect Nissan,” Kawaguchi told the court when questioned by the defense. “I want to protect Nissan. I love Nissan. Ghosn had other intentions.”

Sorry it’s a company and as much love as you feel, it’s an entity that will never love you back.

Kelly’s trial opened in September and a verdict is not expected for months. More than 99% of Japan’s criminal trials result in convictions. so he has a 1% chance, How long do these dumb wits need?

Nissan as a corporate entity is a defendant in the same trial, but has acknowledged guilt, objecting only to questioning by Kelly’s defense team.

they object to being questioned???

What the hell?

this is beyond a farce?
