Posted this in another thread, shouldn't at least spectators be disallowed?

Learned something new today. MLB season consists of 162 games for each of 30 teams. Stadium capacity average around 42thousand and fans are allowed at varying capacities from 19% to 100%

Big sports events continue to be held here and in other countries, regularly, why would they cancel the Olympics?

If they don't go out as much then they have more money to buy with.

And there will actually be more opportunities, not less, to wear them as they will also spend more time on social media.

If they go out, they don't have to wear makeup as theyll be wearing masks

If the polls are correct and 60% of the folks here in Japan want cancellation they should seriously consider cancelling the games.

If that poll numbers translated into number of petitioners then maybe.

Posted in: Petition to cancel Tokyo Olympics submitted to Koike See in context

352,000 signatures, 131 countries.

Does this even outnumber the people who'll be going to the Olympics?

There aren't that many who are really opposed to the Olympics it seems.

Or maybe the petitioner should have waited for a little while longer for more sigs before submitting the petition

Countries in Asia with territorial disputes with China should probably lodge their suits in the all powerful South Korean courts

Similarly it was news yesterday that Japan Doctors delivered their opposition to the Olympics going ahead to the Health Ministry. Not reported here I think and conveniently ignored by the IOC and Japanese ministers

Unfortunately, the numbers did not balloon to figures that cannot be ignored

Posted in: Governors refuse to allot hospital beds for COVID-infected Olympians See in context

Olympics and government who wants to take advantage of Olympics violate even fairness about health and the lives of people.

The spirit of competition is to get ahead of everyone else

If anyone's coming this at least could add motivation for them to make sure they're vaccinated

Are those governors plainly saying they would not treat a person who needs to be saved becaude they are foreign ?

Olympians and those working on the games

It makes sense that government officials should get vaccinated first as the lead at politicians. 

If that's the case make it official.

Include all govt staff who directly participates in the inoculation efforts in same level of priority as health care workers.

But as it is now, it's probably just plain cue jumping.

Posted in: Cancer compensation claim by ex-Fukushima plant worker rejected See in context

He contracted cancers around 5-22 months after starting work at the plant. It's not even close to the 5year minimum latency mentioned in the ruling.

But I would have tried also if in the same situation.

I'm guessing this is the standard translation for a particular Japanese expression, but it doesn't sound right in English. 早くも?

Any suggestion as to how they should write it? =)

Japan is a good example of what could have happened to the US if it weren't for those getting vaccinated. COVID cases are exploding whereas the US is opening up again.

The US at around 2.7 times of Japan's population still outpaces Japan in Covid-19 mortality at more than 7 times at least for today's stat, 762 to Japan's 101

I hope this would be a significant motivation for many to get the jab asap.
