Posted in: Tokyo 2020 Olympic organizers weigh virus control center at athletes' village See in context

Sheer lunacy all round......

It seems countries will have to start pulling the plug to bring some common sense to this situation........its like back in early March all over again just before Canada pulled out!

I think this quote below tells it all sadly:

The tentatively named Organizing Committee Infectious Disease Control Center would coordinate the mammoth task of testing and tracing infections and organizing isolation and treatment of anyone with the virus.

So these FOOLS are PLANNING to go ahead with the games full well expecting people including athletes to come down with the virus......WTF off the charts negligence!

And the sad thing this vote buying in so so many forms has been going on FOREVER in Japan, so this couple must have really messed up & got their bit in the public eye or they are being sacrificed for some reason

Posted in: Woman arrested for attempted murder of ex-husband See in context

Folks she stabbed him in the neck, THAT is attempted MURDER!!

She should be charged & jailed accordingly, if she does she probably wont do the same time as a guy if the roles were reversed!!!

Posted in: Every year, a dwindling pool of working-age Japanese people is forced to support an expanding pool of gray-haired consumers. This is why Japan’s living standards are falling behind rich countries with growing populations. This means more adults are forced into spending hours doing elderly care, more taxes to pay for pensions and health care, and lower living standards for the elderly. See in context

One thing Japan is hugely lacking & is really hurting everyone from the people, through businesses & govt are LABOUR ISSUES!!

Japan needs a massive overhaul in this regard too many issues in this area to cover but overall employees need better protection & ENFORCEMENT of laws already on the books. Business need to pay MUCH BETTER wages!! And changing jobs should simply be a THING!!!

Posted in: Film depicts Black Lives Matter, #MeToo as new feminist wave See in context

“Patrisse and I and Opal have been very clear from the beginning that it’s all of us or none of us. Black women, black queer and trans folks are disproportionately impacted by the criminal justice system, by policing, by issues of safety, violence, and harm,” Garza says in the film.

This is a joke right.......anybody even slightly paying attention would realise that women get MUCH lower sentences etc then men when it comes to the criminal justice system by a MASSIVE margin, totally & utterly UNFAIR!

Same in family courts men have been railroaded BIGTIME for decades, nobody cares.

Ladies need to be careful or this is going to backfire just like it is with metoo

One part I agree with is white women getting an enormously HUGE privilege compared to women of colour.

Sadly society is now way past a battle of the sexes, its become a war!! NOT going to end well I am afraid

Posted in: 82-year-old man with dementia killed by 'stressed out’ wife See in context

Folks as I have been saying for many years here, THIS is HOW the J-govt IS dealing with the elderly........leaving them on their own & waiting to see what happens.

We have all read these articles for decades, nothing much is being done & spouses will sadly continue to kill each other as they both are leading dismal frustrating lives

At some point this is going to start happening to some of us posters as we age.

My MIL should have been looking for an assisted living situation from about 10yrs ago, I am so sick of having this conversation with my wife & here useless brother, they have just let it fester, MIL is not doing well(FIL died many years ago of cancer), the wife knows it but time just passes nothing being done, I dread what the next few years will likely bring & being about 600km away makes it very difficult to do anything on short notice.

Basically these sad stories will be with us non-stop from here on in for decades as the elderly pass or get KILLED!

As I have said for years, SERVICE in Japan is usually pretty good, but VALUE is NOT!!

This test is a prime example of poor value!

An excellent idea!!! Lots of awesome craft beers in Japan now for sure, light years ahead of when I washed up here in 1991 when the only premium beer was Yebisu!

Posted in: Japanese KitKats are shrinking; Nestlé says previous size may have been too large for customers See in context

This is explained for two words:


Period! This has been happening now for over 40yrs in ALL aspects of the economy, electronics made now are utter CRAP compared to when I was a kid, dittio for home appliances etc, cars, you name for the most part quality decreases & profits increase

PURE GREED nothing else

Posted in: 150 pears stolen from orchard in Saitama Prefecture in latest fruit theft See in context

Seems Japan has developed some, how to say it, ALTERNATE distribution for farm produce etc.

While indeed we have found some foreigners involved in these thefts I think it is pretty obvious Japanese are involved as well

Its all a shame if you ask me

Posted in: Abe visits Yasukuni Shrine for 2nd straight month See in context

Perhaps these "heroes" did not know what they were doing (to err is human...etc.), but Japanese fascism and militarism cost MILLIONS their lives in Japan's imperialist wars of aggression. If Abe has a prayer, it should be for forgiveness.

Correct. Estimates vary between 20-30million died during Japans aggression through the Far East & SE Asia.

Add on to that another 3-4million dead Japanese

All of the above caused by Imperial Japan, all the deaths utterly unnecessary.....Japans military, politicians & the ""elite"" OWE a huge apology to ALL the dead outlined above, and the world waits still to this day, meanwhile abe goes to yasukuni.....some NEVER LEARN!!!

Posted in: Abe visits Yasukuni Shrine for 2nd straight month See in context

He loves his country and the heroes who defended Japan. I don't agree with the 14 generals who got convinced to be burried at Yasukuni Shrine, but at the same time Japanese citizens, politicians and SDF members should have a right like every other country to pay respects to the war dead, to our heroes just like the ones who defended your own country.


Ok then WHY doesnt he go to Chidorigafuchi instead..........surely that is a GOOD place to pray for those who died for Japan.

I have no issue with people going to yasukuni, politicians I most certainly have an issue, because THEY go there for those secretly enshrined NOT the people that those same 14 sent to their deaths totally in vain.

Politicians can go to Chidorigafuchi, so ask yourself WHY dont, they I am sure the Emperor & his father could shed some light on this for you as well.

Posted in: Japanese manners debate: Is it OK to tell your coworkers 'I’ve found a new job?' See in context

There are ways to do this & ways not to, each time a person does this there WILL be little or LARGE reasons for doing so, even if you would REALLY like to rub it in its best NOT to, it can be done nicely & even then MOST WILL know the real reasons why, best to take the higher ground.

I did this after my first job in a VERY international company, absolutely LOVED the concept of the company, still do actually now about 33yrs later BUT I could see management doing a LOT wrong & just had to get out, sadly that company ceased to exist about 5-8yrs after I left back in Cda & it WAS due to gross mismanagement sadly

You know what I am looking forward to........

That is watching all the repubs disavowing trump after his loss, should make for some GREAT moments when they ALL start throwing him under the bus to try to save their sorry a$$es LOL. Will be interesting to see how certain JT posters react as well in times AFTER trump!!

WTF Japan, sounds to me like you are PLANNING to have the games even with those involved coming down with Covid........that is just plain STUPID, beyond belief I might add!!

Like I have said before & was said above, people & NOCs outside Japan are going to start pulling out forcing Japan & the IOC once again to pull the plug AFTER it has already been pulled!!!! Idiots all round!

Posted in: Japan to test anti-virus measures for big events at near-full stadium See in context

Desperation for the Olympics is starting to show with this ""test"" doesnt sound like they have any real plan to monitor before & after, my guess is they just want to fill the stadium up & then lie afterwards, like many things I simply do NOT trust the govt here to do right by its own people, your mileage may vary

Posted in: Japan to release treated Fukushima water into sea, media report See in context

As I have been saying since 3\11 this water IS going to end up in the ocean, either released by man or mother nature or BOTH but make no mistake THAT is where this water will end up, there is simply no avoiding this.

End of story!

Posted in: 11 founding clubs named for Japan's 1st women's pro soccer league See in context

This is clearly NOT meant to be a $$$ making venture, sounds like companies will be footing the bills for player\employee salaries etc at likely hefty losses, but likely hope to get some exposure of various sorts I guess.

I mean Y40,000,000 per team will get eaten up WAY BEFORE any salaries could be paid, wont even cover venue use likely let alone travel etc

Posted in: Japanese firms fall woefully short of meeting gov't goals on women in management See in context

These articles never seem to show the percentage of women are at these companies so we can get a better idea of what is really happening.

That said as many above point out & i have said for decades J-women typically DO NOT want to climb the corporate ladder, who could blame them the vast majority of men here HATE their jobs & lives, so WHY on earth would anyone think women here would JUMP at the chance to join in on this kind of MISERY!!!

In the west yes its true many women are doing very well in white collar end of things, they tend to avoid anything else for the most part. And while doing well there are also many repercussions going on in the west, many of these women enjoy being single into their 30s to find out less men are interested in them for marriage, those that do get hitched, divorce at VERY high rates, also something 70% of western women are living un-happy lives & on anti-depressants etc

So I would say be careful what you wish for you just might GET IT!! In the west family lives have been taken massive hits the past 30yrs & looks set to continue in the same direction.
