I am very sorry Japan has been suffering with natural disasters one after another. My prayers and thoughts are with you in the time of crisis. By the way, let's take care of these who are dealing with the heat stroke because the heat stroke can be fatal sometime. Drink up water and move under the shade. For others living other area, the listed below is a good read.

you can usually get a copy of your images from the hospital for a small fee.

Hope you can use this as a constructive critic so that your health care is going to be better. I am a cancer survivor of two different cancers living in the USA. I cannot go back to Japan as I cannot find the same treatment I am getting here.

This is totally unacceptable and absurd.

In the US, all medical providers are legally obligated to share the information upon patients complete and sign the Privacy Protection Release Form (Privacy Act) and it is okay to do so. '

Japanese medicine needs to adopt the same rule PRONTO here. It is important so that the patients do not have to repeat the same CT scans. We are aware that the high radiation exposure test is harmful. Or, I think, Japanese medical providers proactively do not want to do this because they are afraid to become accountable.

"These days, some people have a selfish idea that it is better not to give birth to children."

WOW, I did not realize Japan does not allow people to live in freedom. This should be left alone to each individual. The government has no business telling people what to do in the democracy.

Posted in: Gov't to go ahead with sales tax hike in Oct 2019 See in context

I may add to my previous post listed above. Many US Economists have been suggesting that Japan needs to focus on the Domestic Spending Expansion Plan & Consumer Spending tax reform now. If Japan wants to eliminate Inequality, poverty and discrimination, invest more in education and needs to tax less to the poor.

Why Japan doesn't follow the California model of exempting groceries and medicine from sales tax is beyond me.

Agreed. Unless Japanese policy makers are thinking to implement the food and medicine exemption, Japanese consumers will have less money to spend. Eventually it will shrink the Domestic Spending. If they seriously want to raise the consumption tax in 2019, this food and medicine exemption plays more critical role. These two things; Raising Tax to 10% and the Food and Medicine Exemption have to be implemented at the same time. As far as the US, I believe all 50 states are implementing the food and medicine exemption. I do not pay 8.6% tax on them in Colorado.

This will show you how Trump is unfit for the job. He thinks highly of Putin and disrespect John Lewis. I have learned Trump's father was a member of KKK, so this is not a surprise to me. We need to work harder to kick this crazy man "CHEETO" out of office with handcuff. Sooner the better. Are you with me?

Because he has been saying all these good promises with NO IDEA. He is just a sad twitter president with no value and ideology. I would like him to be arrested, handcuffed and sent jail. This man is a total fraud.

Donald Trump should not be allowed to step down. Let him go all the way to November 8th and let him destroy the Republican Party for good. The Republicans had an option to force him out earlier. Instead Republicans chose to keep this ignorant, arrogant, bigoted, sexist PIG to stay in the race. When they lie down with dogs, they need to get up with fleas.That simple!
