Adopt, don't buy and remember the commitment is for life, just as if they were your own children. If you can't commit but would still like to help, help out at the shelters or work with local TNR groups and care for local strays.

Japan can't even control the virus now with its local population, how is it going to manage with tens of thousands more arriving from foreign countries and on top of that manage heat stroke issues as well? Idiots.

I wonder if anyone told Bill that the majority of Japanese are against the games? Sorry to say that although Bill's message was one of encouragement, it will be misconstrued and only embolden Suga to proceed even if the developing countries are not vaccinated. The crux of the message was to get the vaccines to developing countries.

A young boy was involved in a traffic accident and it took 40 minutes for the ambulance to find a hospital that could accept him. Because of Covid, there was a significant delay and the boy died. That is the meaning of collapse. This is what happens when you push people to travel and spread when nothing is under control. People complain and piss and moan about Covid stress; go talk to the medical workers about stress, we need to do our part out here to keep the hospitalizations down to manageable levels.

Posted in: Should employees who were paid for overtime when they worked in their office be also paid for overtime when they are working remotely? If so, how can that be calculated (or verified) by the company? See in context
It's a trade off, the employees can't prove that they were at their desk during working hours, so obviously they won't be able to prove any overtime. The employees however should be compensated for utilities cost which otherwise wouldn't accrue if they were at the office.

PBS Frontline is also good. BTW, Japan has Houdo Tokushu, 報道特集 that airs on TBS on Saturdays from 17:30. Check it out, pretty good.

Of course the government won't admit that their Go to campaign was one of the catalysts of this number. This is what happens when the economy has priority over lives. Looking at it now, what were the economic benefits of this campaign compared to what is going on now? An emergency economic relief package with a stay put stipulation would have been much better served. Now all we have are the worst of everything, stay put with no economic relief and a medical system ready to burst at the seams.

Suburban middle aged pseudo-intellectuals with too much time on their hands. Go be productive and help where it's needed, like maybe a covid hospital housecleaning company and wash up the infected sheets and linen. Masks and gowns optional for you, we don't want to tread on your free speech and thought.

sZero25 - I disagree, trump does not have a valid point, he is only posturing to make his followers think that he's for the common man. If he were really interested he would have been more actively involved in the negotiations from the beginning pushing for more money which his GOP denied the Dems, instead he was crying about his being a loser. That's why Pelosi quickly agreed to the 2K and is calling trump's bluff. If he were really interested in the welfare of all Americans he would have made his voice heard about the 2K way earlier and not at the last minute which threatens another government shut down.

Money that could have been well spent on tax deductible donations for the needy during these times. The crass idiocy disgusts me. Absolutely no sense of priorities.

The problem is that it is mutating and that the best preventive measures are still being ignored by those who refuse to believe in the science. It will mutate again, and we won't know what form it will be then, this is the concern. Also another question, is this dominant strain in London similar to the one found in the minks of Denmark and the Netherlands?

Dismissed doesn't mean indicted and prosecuted. Why aren't these figures released? The system that the schools are using is to protect themselves, not the students. The schools had also better start screening better and start addressing teachers' mental health issues as well. The system has to be overhauled big time, the children are the future of the country and it starts with education.

ANA is hurting from the pandemic and putting employees out to pasture and ruining their livelihood, but they have money to spend on this? United by Emotion, damn right....disgust and outrage!

Any business project manager that had the cost over run these games are producing would be fired and the project would be shut down. It's really bad for us taxpayers that the government has the wrong MBA, Masters of Bungled Administration.

Monitor only at the request of GOJ.? This will be a clear indicator of Japan's intent on safety and its stance on nukes. Abe refusing to meet with ICAN after the organization received the Nobel Peace Prize showed that Japan is not serious about nuclear arms proliferation or control so now we can watch what their stance will be on nuke safety.

Yup, and a declining birth rate with fewer young people to pilot and service the aircraft let alone to support society and the economy. LDP can't think ahead; only what's right in front of their nose, or abenomask.

Typical Trump and Munchikin financial policy. Blame others for your own failures. Trump's pandemic policy has wrecked domestic production and the number of bankruptcies, unemployed and miles and miles waiting in food lines is a clear indication of the toll it is taking on the U.S. The U.S. is no longer a main player on the world stage, Trump has made sure of that.

Nishimura doesn't have a scientific or medical background, he's just the man to be leading the fight against the pandemic.

Japan is a government and society run by Showa Ossan who probably don't even know the price of lettuce. This is a country that has a severe declining birth rate that can't or won't protect the women and children who are literally the future of its existence. This pandemic has only exacerbated and has brought into more focus all the social ills that society already had, it is not the cause. The lack of action is inexcusable but sadly not surprising.

And not a peep about this from the wanna be president and his cult.

I can't say for Korea, but for Japan, if the testing is so low, you need to stay put. Nishimura and the other covidiots kept spouting that there wasn't any evidence associating the travel campaign with the surge in cases. It's this type of thinking that got us here, it's pretty dang obvious and it's not like the government performed a study to justify making a statement like that. They'll never admit that their idiot campaign is responsible for this, besides, Go To Travel is grammatically incorrect, so much for the brains being paid for by our taxes.
