Disillusioned

is absolutely right, the train has left te station years ago, warming will be above 4 to 5 degrees, we cannot stop this anymore, however, we can do a lot to mitigate and drag it out as long as possible, but it's coming, no questions about it, the only ones not getting it are politicians, economists and Joe public

Posted in: Prices set to rise in Japan for over 10,000 food items on weak yen See in context

"earning the same as 2- years ago" it's not as black and white as many may think, Japan didn't have inflation for decades so it doesn't really matter that your salaries didn't increase, I came here in 1997 and honestly, only recently the eggs for example started to cost a little bit more than they did in 1997, compare that to Europe. Economics is never as black and whote. Also the weak yen is not alone to blame, it's the perfect storm of weak yen, broken logostics chain, raw materials at sy high prices and let's not forget the amazing profiteering of energy cmpanies like Shell and BP for example that are cashing in on it, that's the really disgusting part of it, they made already billions in profits this year and are telling us that we have an energy crisis

Simple way to get more people vaccinated, whoever got an invitation for a vaccination but didn’t show up and gets sick needs to pay 100% of medical costs and gets no sick money while off from work, guess we would be at 90-95% in a jiffy

Posted in: High court rejects paternity harassment allegations by Canadian man See in context

it clear that the trading company made a terrible mistake. Paternity leave or not if the child was born premature they should have given him 2 days leave in any case on the spot. The guy might have had open trades ecc so leaving quickly might not have been an option but once those trades were settled just let him go…… As for the paternity leave payment, don’t know japan but in most countries it’s paid by the government through the employer so I really don’t understand why they didn’t give it to him. Said that, we are talking banks and bankers….. two words come to mind after 2008….. pure greed ….

Legal or illegal the money will be made by the same people. As one said here, it’s called dope for a reason, any drug use should be discouraged. Look how much pain alcohol causes in the world.

Thai happened also in many other Asian countries. Poaching of glass eel is rampant in Europe and more lucrative than drugs reports say. Vegetarian anyone?

looks almost like Japan, some things are missing to make it the perfect exerience: electricity poles, traffic lights every 10m (must not be synconized) the mountain in the back needs to be concreted over and a Pachinko and convenience store just next to those historic buildings and lots of advertisiment signs, last but not least, most trees need to be pruned so harc that they are sticks, that would make it just right and awesome
