Cute name for segregation cars. I guess the Japanese who came back from Britain and brought the new virus with them wouldn't have to ride them.
What name? It says "Travelers arriving from overseas" as well as "incoming visitors and returnees". The article only mentions "nonresident foreign nationals" in the last sentence.
I would say by all means Japanese nationals are to ride in these special cars along with returning foreign residents if they don't have a private car lined up to ride in.

Why did it take such a long time to come up with this plan? Are the same ones responsible for the slow roll out of the vaccines?

Where are you reading about a drinking party? The news I have read says it was spread in a break room and cafeteria. Or are you just joking?

A sickle! My image of a sickle might be totally off from theirs I hope.
Ha. I thought the same thing at first, but I believe a sickle fits in one hand and is used for weeding yards while the scythe is the large one that the Grim Reaper carries around. Still, the small weeding tool can be pretty sharp. Ours sure is.

How does the saying go? There's someone for everyone. Hopefully not in this case. I am surprised that this would be allowed in a Japanese prison.

That's too bad. A lot of hard work down the drain. I don't understand the lingo either, but I don't automatically jump to the conclusion something is pseudo medicine. These days most medical terms are over my head.

Does this mean we will need to get a yearly inoculation just like for influenza?

Later hours = more alcohol served = inhibitions out the window = less careful, all while not wearing masks(unless you are an anti-masker).
I don't think there is some grand conspiracy against restaurants. Many hot spots have been linked to places like this. It isn't rocket science. If people are just sitting quietly eating their meals there probably wouldn't be as big of a problem, but that isn't as fun.
If trains and busses were as noisy as they are in the US, perhaps the government would target them as well, you could hear a pin drop inside a train in Japan. At least in Tokyo, that is.

What's a self-employed worker? If you're self-employed, doesn't that mean you run your own business?
Self-employed is the correct title and you don't have to run your own 'business' to qualify. It just means that you are your own boss. Like me! Not sure you need the word 'worker' because that implies they are an employee, IMO. Anyway, angry drunks should lay off the sauce.

I wonder why the hospital occupancy rate is not reported instead.
This might have what you are looking for. Today's numbers have yet to be posted as I post this comment. https://stopcovid19.metro.tokyo.lg.jp/en
P.S. You can change the language on the left, if needed.

Guessing it was ill-gotten gain, and the victim is hoping the cops don't find out... Nobody honest keeps that sort of loot at home.
Hoarding large amounts of cash and stashing it in a wardrobe at home is VERY common in Japan, especially among the elderly.

Wow and sad. Ueno Park. I pass through there every week. Japan is still very much a cash society, despite going 'cashless', so it isn't uncommon to have that much on you. I have carried more than that--and been nervous about it.

So, whose vote did he take away, Trump's or Biden's or were people who voted for him ones that weren't planning on voting in the first place until he came along?

My experience at the unsignalled crosswalks is that it's around 80% if I raise my hand like elementary school kids do.

As long as the news media uses the words 'radioactive water' people will be freaked out. The article mentions how the water was treated only at the very end with tritium being the only element left. Tritium has a half life of 12.5 years, but the article doesn't help determine how long or how much tritium is left to be dangerous and when diluted with the billions of gallons of water in the ocean is it still dangerous? Without facts like these, articles like this seem to just trigger peoples fears. I wish news articles could instead help ease our fears.

8 years old and in preschool? That might give some hint to the stress this woman was obviously under.
I hope she can get some help.

Should Trump emerge with no visible effects, he could declare a speedy recovery as proof that he’s been right about COVID-19 being overblown.
I was going to say this but the article says it instead. I would certainly never wish for someone to die, but considering all the damage his downplaying this virus has caused...would I be be breaking JT's user agreement if say that it is necessary and important that he has to fight his way out of the hospital? I hope he sees the light and starts asking people to wear their masks everywhere.

Egads. 3am. Some guys just need to take a cold shower and go to bed. Hope she’s not scarred for life.
I was in the parking lot of a Tsutaya once where the guy in the car next to me was watching porn and, well, you know. I’ll never forget his intense beady eyes peering over at me.

Wow! 4 people don’t believe people should be held responsible for accidents they cause! Shameful!
To be fair, tho, There are situations where they could be completely innocent, and a third party is at fault.
Did you even read the article? Sadly those responsible for the crash are all dead. In most cases the party who rear ends is at fault. Perhaps they will check the phones, but there probably isn't anyone alive to punish. RIP

I like the first 13 or so floors, but the rest... I wonder who will be able to use the grassy field on the roof as well as the observation deck that seems like it will be an echo chamber. Not sure it will be golden during the daytime. I don't understand the appeal of smooth glass towers. I wish we could post photos here, but there is a video on that link that shows what I am talking about.

Creepy yes, but dangerous? I don't know. Yoshiwara north of Asakusa is a strange place with mobster looking type owners/mangers waiting for customers outside of windowless but colorful, ahem, hotels. I should go to a nearby 7-11 next time I commute on my bike through there. Can't be that dangerous since I see school kids walking through there.
I have seen dirty looking convenient stores with trash outside in the countryside with notes thanking me for keeping the bathroom clean. Ooo, must be a dangerous area.

They should pay for soundproofing of homes with noise at a certain decibel level. We probably wouldn't qualify, living too far away, but even inside our well insulated home with double pane windows closed, we can hear them fly overhead. It is right at a point in the path where the planes make a grumbling metal scraping change to their flaps. Every 2 minutes or less, grumble, scrap, thunk, buzzz... I can't imagine what folks closer in are hearing.
I usually look forward to Fall and Spring when I don't have to use the AC/heater and can have the windows open, but this year I dread it.

How embarrassing. My wife would divorce me for this. I am surprised they didn't ban him for life like other airlines have to other similar passengers. Such a short time to inconvenience oneself to just wear a mask! Don't believe in masks? Tell that to your surgeon. (rolling my eyes)

I don't understand why they don't teach the Heimlich here in schools or even to teachers. I saved BOTH of my kids from choking on candy and beef when they were young by using it. Such a super simple maneuver. Amazing how well it works!
RIP little one.

You sure about that address? Can't find anything when I search for either the restaurant name or address. Sure its a new place, but at least the building should be there.

I suppose most people spend much of their time indoors, so I am guessing the outdoor heat and UV has no affect on any virus indoors, but I am no expert. Perhaps we should all summarily turn off our AC's and test it? Uh...nope.
