Posted in: Tokyo Olympics hit by yet another scandal over demeaning comments See in context

I find Tokyo’s female Governor’s comment to be more insulting yet very true representation of the mindset of Japanese political elite, which is all about projection of a fake progressive country without actually changing a thing. I was hoping that as a rare female powerful politician she may comment on the underlying problem and not only about the perception of Japan overseas.

"When we are talking about what we deliver from Tokyo, or from Japan, we shouldn't be sending a negative message,"

With experience in the software and hardware industry, I can say we will see a lot more glitches in coming days across multiple companies. Japanese companies suddenly have came to a conclusion that hiring from India is a magic bullet. But unlike other countries who hire top quality talent across the globe including India and pay them fairly the only focus Japanese companies has, is to hire cheap talent, put them under a Japanese manager who has no idea on how to communicate internationally, and the only motivation is shouting banzai banzai banzai.

Posted in: Woman beheaded, 2 others killed in French church See in context

RIP the poor woman who lost her life due to stupidity and ego contest of the religious fanatics and a political animal.

French President turned a lone wolf attack by a teen into battle of religions, he had no connection to any known terrorist organization and there was no proof that it was a coordinated effort by a religious cult, yet President Macron and French authorities decided to use this opportunity to suppress a minority even further, isn’t this similar to what Jews faced in Europe?

Politicians usually are very good at defusing the situation but somehow he decided to escalate it. I hope that the sense will prevail on both side and Muslim clerics and figures of authority will speak up because in the battles of rich and powerful only the poor lose

When it comes to kids, trust no one is the best policy.

Also, it is really important to talk to kids about their day at school.

These monsters come in all sizes and ages, so it’s alright to be suspicious.

With this rate India will surpass US in 4 weeks, this doesn’t just impact India but as a country with largest no of immigrants living in almost every country of the world will effect the entire world one way or another, if the world forces a strict entry ban on Indian immigrants they have a HR issue, if they don’t they might let corona spread.

I hope it gets under control

For decades, the conservative LDP was dominated by factions whose bosses backed rival candidates in multi-member constituencies, collected and handed out campaign funds, and used their clout to launch runs at the premiership.

Posted in: Woman holding baby hit by truck on crossing; driver arrested See in context

Having driven extensively in Japan. I would say the Japanese truck drivers are far better than the pedestrians and bicycle kamikazes here.

But we don’t know what really happened, if the driver was really on phone or if the lady with kid was trying to cross the intersection in a hurry. Hope they get well soon.

Bureaucrats as usual first creating a problem by utilizing the ideas of their bright minds and trying to solve it by adding more regulations and workarounds. Pretty much similar to the plan of having Olympics in Summer.

This is a news I keep reading over and over again which makes me wonder why these buildings do not have safety bars or something similar to avoid these incidents.

Does Japan has no laws to regulate windows design in buildings ?

Japan it’s no more a foreign problem. It’s a local one one. The community spread of infection is in full swing now. The rising number of daily infections and over 60 infections in one facility in Chiba is enough evidence.

However, as usual the politicians will make it look like a foreign problem to cover their bad decisions.

Of these, 1032 Japanese citizens accounted for 56.7%, and foreigners accounted for 43.3%.

Can you please share the source as well?

As the Olympics are gone let’s show our face to public and get some votes by acting tough and portray that we are doing something.

it’s too little too late. Japan is still complacent and the Govt’s current action is saving face and setting grounds to start blaming the public for the spread.

Can’t Abe find one competent person for his cabinet? This genius after spreading corona by his stupid decisions will soon be “urging” and “blaming” people for not following the “urges”.
