Posted in: Building of temporary housing begins for Japan quake victims See in context

Why on earth isn't there a stock supply of these ready to be air lifted into disaster regions? 'Beginning to build' sounds like no one knew there would be a need at some point

Posted in: Trudeau beckons Taylor Swift to Canada See in context

This is what we have come to expect from a Prime Minister who allows a book called 'My Canadian Boyfriend' to be published with him making a heart symbol on the cover, just about sums it up really.....

Oh and the 'Canadians are nice' cliche is totally untrue, they've generally become as selfish and disrespectful of others as the rest of the World......

The agency has been run for 18 years by Philippe Blatter, a nephew of former FIFA president and IOC member Sepp Blatter. It was bought in 2015 by Chinese corporation Wanda.

Really? Surprised no one has commented on this..... ''

Posted in: Japan tourism promotion held in Beijing to boost post-COVID demand See in context

I was in Kyoto the last two weeks and it certainly seemed like there were 9.59 million Chinese tourists there then!

According to so many articles we read on here, China is hostile and aggressive and one could be forgiven for drawing the conclusion is only moments away and yet Japan is hosting parties to promote tourism from China. Have to agree with other posters this seems to be a real conflict of thinking

I am currently in Kyoto. The only significant group of people who are not wearing masks appear to be mainly. European. Personally I am glad that the vast majority of Japanese are continuing to mask. At this point its a personal choice and I don't see why anyone should be pushing people to not wear masks if they wish to continue doing so.

All good reasons to never use nuclear power ever again. And they're extending the 60 year life of other reactors....... The mind boggles at the insanity of it all

Posted in: 'Paper City': The untold story of the firebombing of Tokyo in World War II See in context

I have visited the Tokyo Memorial Hall mentioned in the article which specifically commemorates this event and the 1923 earthquake. There are lots of photos and artefacts on display and it is a very moving experience to visit. I don't quite follow the argument in favour of another specific memorial

That 246 people died? Yes it does. The insensitivity of some comments on this topic never ceases to amaze me.

Good to see the infection numbers significantly decreasing but the deaths are still excruciatingly high. RIP to those deceased and condolences to their families.

The insensitivity of some comments on this topic continues to amaze me.

Posted in: JCB launches #BetterWithOmotenashi campaign to drive brand awareness across Europe See in context

Problem number 2 the catch phrase is way too long and westerners need to work at pronunciation of the last part. Problem number 3, after reading the article which is full of typical corporate self promoting rah-rah I still have no clue what they are trying to sell to who which after all must surely be the ultimate goal of any 'brand-raising' campaign. Finally the article goes on about the eye catching graphics by a well known English designer but doesn't shos anything. Which is a little odd to say the least.

As GBR48 commented JCB is a digger manufacturer in Europe in fact the term JCB is used for any type of digger like Hoover is used for any type of vacuum cleaner. That I see as problem no 1

Posted in: Japanese delegation to visit Canada to meet with battery, mining companies See in context

Canada should start by manufacturing more for itself instead of buying almost everything it needs from China - go in a typical store in Canada and try to find something that's not made in China. Like in the UK Canada has put itself in a precarious position by giving most of it's manufacturing away to China, fuelled by the lure of cheap labour to increase corporate profit. And why all these delegations at the taxpayers expense with first class travel, fancy hotels, expensive meals....... Haven't they heard of Teams and Zoom? Oh yes, the priveleges of upper level civil servants and the business community - how about some real level of moderation
