Posted in: Osaka names pachinko parlors defying closure request despite pandemic See in context

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.

Iran said on Tuesday it had arrested people accused of a role in shooting down a Ukrainian airliner

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

No jail time for Yamaguchi? Does money solve everything? How about the stain caused? I think money compensation is not enough.

Posted in: Seven-Eleven failed to pay some overtime wages to at least 30,000 employees for years See in context

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Posted in: Historical documents show Japanese gov't role in providing sex slaves See in context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

Posted in: Japan's Astellas to buy Audentes for $3 billion in gene therapy push See in context

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.

stressing that the health risk to humans would be "significantly small."

How small? Have they measured it?

This is why I stopped buying any produce from Fukushima.

Posted in: Japan's economy grows less than expected in third quarter See in context

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.

Just 13 years of imprisonment versus the lifetime he stole from this young girl. It's too lenient.

Posted in: Man says he abused stepdaughter because efforts to discipline her didn't work See in context

He physically abused the girl for failing to live up to his difficult demands, including waking up at 4 a.m.

He is one sick stupid man! I don't understand why have a child and abuse your own flesh and blood?! He deserves to be locked, given 1 meal a day and be awaken 4:00 am everyday. He doesn't have the right to be called a father.

The government is considering providing 5,000 yen worth of points to spend at stores across Japan to consumers who load 20,000 yen in their account

That's a good 25% profit! People would just use the points and withdraw their money.

Posted in: Smartphone app found effective in helping people quit smoking See in context

Measuring the carbon monoxide in somebody's breath gives a gauge to alert people of the danger they are doing to themselves. But at the end of the day, it is still self-control and discipline that matters to stay away from smoking. As Saint Paul said, "I beat my body and make it my slave so ... I myself will not be disqualified for the prize"
