He is and must remain a symbol for all other foreigners victim of the same situation.

The japanese side can claim anything, the pattern is always the same and too many exceptions to the international parental child abduction law are made by this same country.

Most of the elderly are vaccinated, we have low obesity rates too, these two combinations lead to very few deaths. 

i like how your usage of "we" illustrate perfectly how you belong to the Japanese political leaders population and not the foreigners one.

It's the natural cycle of the world, get hot, get cold, get hot get cold. Accept

Previous cycles took millions of years while we experience a strong climate change in 50 years.

Posted in: Europe to boost battery production as electric shift accelerates See in context

This whole thing about electric cars reminds me of people buying meat at the supermarket and feeling fine about themselves because they are detaching themselves from the reality of the overall supply chain.

I think you're not better than them omitting a lot of arguments in favor of electric cars.

Like :

no more / less fuel transportation = less polluting tankers, less oil spill risks, less seabed destruction

greater life expectancy = talking about 150k miles currently, car renewal frequency reduced

less maintenance = less parts to change, less pollution

less brake system particles pollution

mature technology but still great improvements to be expected

Fixed your post.

most of the athletes are not really professional like other athletes!

I don't watch Olympics to see the same professionals we see all the year doing the same things.

Amateurs & small countries participants are something refreshing with the Olympics.

I'm not one for conspiracy theories. I'm rather in the incompetence camp.

I expect around 20-30% weekly average rise given recent trajectory, so maybe 1200-1300 on Wednesday/Thursday.

That would be logical but i think the "official" numbers are capped at 1k.

Posted in: Family of dead Sri Lankan woman launch petition for video disclosure See in context

Had she not lied and tried to cheat on her immigration status she may not have died.

Had she returned to her own country and not played the system, she may not have died.

Had she received better medical care she may not have died.

Life is full of choices. Choose wisely.

For you and others, a reminder of her story :

She came to Japan to study, legally, and everything went fine until her boyfriend started being violent with her.

She became a beaten woman who could not attend her classes hence couldn't renew her student visa.

Unlike many other beaten women she found the courage to go and see the police to escape her daily hell.

The first thing the police looked at is her visa and she was immediately arrested for that.

With a little help, she could have been set on the good path again. But we have a rotten, cold system looking at papers not the human condition.

Aren’t the number of beds for the seriously ill limited, and the number of patients admitted regulated? My understanding is people are told to go home and wait it out if they are not deathly ill, and hope they don’t become a statistic.

Also that 70% of the bed are in the private medical sector and, like for tests, the government can only recommend to report the numbers, not force ...

Studying the data from other countries that have vaccinated more than Japan gives a reason to be cheerful.

Funny how now other countries pattern is useful to your demonstration but it was not when it came to infection waves.

Reuters has a great data visualizer: https://graphics.reuters.com/world-coronavirus-tracker-and-maps/countries-and-territories/japan/

Unfortunately, you can use any visualization method you want, if the data source is tainted, you get a false perspective.

For exemple, the infections trend largely depends on the tests amount which is not stable and significant in Japan.
