Posted in: Popular Japanese pub chain shuts 20% of its locations due to virus See in context

Priority of pubs to close out at least closed early are The Hub, SPECIALLY in places like Shibuya where the locations are underground with zero ventilation, small and tight with zero chance of social distancing.

Won't happen as you'd need both sides to agree. And having both sides agreeing to something for the good of the country? That would be the day we move in the right direction.

Posted in: Japan to expand virus state of emergency beyond Tokyo as cases top 300,000 See in context

No the virus doesn't stay dormant till 20:00. But most places would start getting packed at around that time. So the "earlier" closing time wouldn't allow the nomikais after work to go on...So this move would allow for more restricted gatherings in restaurants/bars while at the same time allowing the merchant to stay in business.

That's a win win... except restaurants and izakayas don't exactly close at 20:00. Someone I know went to drink at an izakaya in Machida on Friday night. At 20:00 the izakaya pulled the shutter down just so they looked like they closed but the party went on till later that night.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic president tries to reassure doubting country See in context

They won't happen. People in western countries are too dang selfish, stubborn and have to much freedom for things to go back to somewhat normal. In these conditions, athletes won't be able to go on with their regular trainings so a lot of them won't be on their best shape.

I wanted the Olympics to happen and bring tourism back (so I can go back to my career) but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

I always wondered if the caravans were created by the far-right to promote their not so awesome leader. The timing was just too precise.

Incitement of insurrection.

Being a threat to US democracy.

Posted in: Obstetrician at 'baby hatch' hospital struggles for women's right to confidential births See in context

I'm a big fan of every helpless, innocent baby being embraced by the loving arms of it's mother.

A mother is a birthright, is it not?

Life conditions for every one of the 8 billion people in this planet are not just black or white. There's a ton of gray in between. Options should be available when that gray area is not the very best. Or would you prefer the mother gives birth in her dorm, to then bury the baby's body in the building's backyard?

Also, parent is not the one that makes the baby. Is the one that takes care of that creature and as you said, gives that baby unlimited and unconditional love, care and attention.

Posted in: S Korea likely to confirm ex-comfort women's win next week See in context

So South Korea gets to decide that Japan needs to pay whatever money they want them to pay. And if they don't pay, SK gets seize Japanese assets and that's totally fair in their books. But dare Japan take Korea out of their white list for privileged business clients and "OMG, how dare them (JP) be so unjust and unfair. Proof that they hate us to the core. Let's boycott everything Japan coz after all, we're only victims."

Feel really sorry for the innocent babies deprived of motherly love.

Every person born deserves the love of their mother.

So, not a big fan of adoption?

Posted in: An isolated Trump faces looming impeachment threat See in context

Impeaching President Donald Trump with 12 days remaining in his presidency would only serve to further divide the country

The country is already divided, idiots and people with common sense. This guy (the orange) should be in jail.

We have started to understand what kind of disease (COVID-19) is, so I feel like we are not facing the same sense of urgency that we had in spring last year," Kunio Iyonaga, a 48-year-old commuter

This guy couldn't be any wronger. The virus is still the same as it was and more, since it's gone thru the large populations and changed.

People kept living life like nothing, went to temples to pray coz apparently that was more important than the pandemic, kept their everyday overtime with cup noodles for dinner, now they're crying victim.

Besides, SoE is not lockdown. No penalties for not obeying.

Posted in: Suga's upcoming decision on state of emergency derided as too little, too late See in context

a move derided by citizens as too little, too late,

Which citizens?

By the same citizens who are at fault for the spike in the virus. They kept going to izakayas, karaoke, dance clubbing, not practicing proper social distancing.

Posted in: Vaccination campaign picks up speed around the world See in context

why this article doesn't mention Japan and the fact that they are also too slow to start vaccinating.

Maybe because the article is in the "World section" of the website and because it's not about Japan?

Republican senators are following their conscience and putting country before party.

Lol. No. They couldn't care less about "their country." They only want more power, more money and to blindly following their cult leader, who also wants the same things.

Posted in: Gov't to consider new COVID-19 state of emergency declaration See in context

She's just looking for attention and making it look like she's doing.

She's been trying to "decide" to "ask" Suga to declare SOE. As in passing the ball "here, your problem. You decide, you pay the consequences, not my problem."

Now they're still "deciding" if they go into SOE, which on all legalities is nothing as it is not lockdown. It's another made up word for urging people to do stuff.

I thought Koike was the governor Tokyo needed and maybe even the next PM. But turns out she's just another pussycat politician. All words but that's it. Meh. Rant over.

If Koike was really serious about her "urging," then why didn't she close all those shrines? Moments like these were need leaders with the balls to implement measures, like Moon. When people have too much freedom and then abuse of that precious freedom, then they need to be forcibly put limitations so they stay in line. But nor Koike or Suga have the b... courage to do this. Hence all the "urging."
