Posted in: Ferdinand Marcos Jr sworn in as Philippine president See in context

The Philippines was dragged down by later presidents after the Marcos regime. We only saw hope when Ex President Duterte was in the office and things have improved a lot. For now President Marcos Junior, we are expecting a lot from him and time will tell if he is a good president or not.

Again, the "corruption mindset" should change in order for the nation to flourish. The old politicians should go out of the window and should be replaced with a new generation.

Posted in: Asteroid samples contain clues to origin of life, say Japanese scientists See in context

Why are scientists looking for the origin of life from space? Probability is likely low. Shouldn't they start thinking that what they are seeing in space may probably originated from earth, where life is lushing and blooming?

Why look at the desert for life when there is life in the garden? It is no brainer.

Somebody's loss is somebody's gain. It's just a transfer of wealth from one hand to another. Who gained in this scenario?

Posted in: Democrats plan impeachment; Twitter deletes Trump's account See in context

I am pretty concerned that that companies like Twitter and Facebook can control the freedom of speech and could sway politics, be able to control the way people express themselves and think and how much people have gave them power to control their lives. Maybe we should rethink about it... I gave up using Twitter already and Facebook soon.

Posted in: Suga, Biden agree to strengthen Japan-U.S. alliance in phone talks See in context

It is not yet official that Biden won as the legal president. Still Trump has two months in the office, why is Japan already talking with Biden? If the tables are turned around and if Trump won through vote recount, it will be an embarrassment to Suga.

Shaming will not work as people have choices to be defiant. The only way is to declare a lockdown to have a full power.

Posted in: Plane leaves Japan for Greece to collect Olympic flame See in context

but there was no delegation from organizers onboard due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.

Officials want to go on with the Olympics but afraid of the virus. Isn’t this a conflicting message?!!!

And why waste fuel and time? A lighter from Daiso would be enough, isn’t it?

Just wondering. When the fine is paid, where will the money end to and who will benefit from this enormous amount of money?

Posted in: Tokyo organizers, government go on the offensive over virus threat See in context

International Olympic Committee and local organizers are going as planned with the Tokyo Olympics despite the threat of the spreading coronavirus.

It's all about money and fame, not about people. We still have 3 months to go anyway for any decision.

Posted in: Fukushima staff may have to use raincoats as virus threatens protective suit production See in context

There should be no impact on safety as the coats are not designed to protect workers from radiation since the rays penetrate clothes in any case.

Is this typo? The most stupid statement I ever read.

This is not an individual crime, it's a crime by a government. They're looking for scapegoats.

18 years! That's a deliberate theft! The company and its president should be fined or go to jail. This is not a small-time theft. This a grand theft.

Posted in: Historical documents show Japanese gov't role in providing sex slaves See in context

Pretty much barbaric. Before this issue came up, I remember my grandma used to tell the atrocities of rapes and murders of the Japanese soldiers. That was pretty much in the 70s. What Japan neighbors claiming is true but idiotic politicians, patriots and lame historians are denying it.

Anyway, it's all history now and they are all rotting and being burned in hell.

Gene therapies aim to cure diseases by replacing the missing or mutated version of a gene found in a patient’s cells with healthy copies.

How would they replace billions of cells?

I think these are just lame excuses of an irresponsible and lazy guy. Girls may not even want to go out with them. So there he go, free from any dates.

Japanese economy would ride out the storm next year as it receives a likely boost from the Tokyo Olympics.

I don't now much about economics, but what boost would it be and in what form? Not seeing much.
