Most of these institute have their own servers / email servers. Researchers must communicate (mandatory) through provided email address. Once you leave these institute all of your correspondence goes with it. Not a user friendly and primitive UI it looks really hackable.

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

The release of the water, which has been filtered to reduce radioactivity,...

Most of the radioactive isotopes have been removed by an extensive filtration process -- but one remains, called tritium, which cannot be removed with existing technology.

filtered and most probably 1000X diluted who knows...

A government panel said earlier this year that releasing the water into the sea or evaporating it were both "realistic options".

NAH!!! "option A" to hide all those incapability.

Posted in: First-ever foot-operated vending machine appears in Japan during pandemic See in context

Nice idea, drunk people will have hard time though lol !

Even without a pandemic, the natural environment contains several hundreds of thousands of microbes per cubic meter

1) Thousands of course but the concentration is still low compared uncleaned palm. 2) Uncleaned palms will mostly carry mouth bacteria and human viruses whereas air will carry all types of microbes which might be unharmful to humans (depends on surroundings).

Posted in: Okinawa governor asks Suga for dialogue on U.S. base transfer See in context

Japan was very stupid to dissolve its Military force after WWII defeat. They could have coexist with US military. One day US will move out, then what? Japan bears almost 30-35% of US military's Asia-pacific budget that's great help for DOD. The day US military moves out of Japan, it will be the day US will lose its power from the other half of the globe.

No U.S. Base - no sustainability. Do the math.

LOL. Tourism is Okinawa's main industries (at present). US military might contribute max of 5-7% to the local economy and it's very centralized maybe we can hand pick those businesses. Remember all those housing facilities, recreational facilities, base employees are paid by J-gov (JP's tax payer's money). You need to move more around Okinawa to understand this.

Relocating base inside main island means less likely to be a target by China. China will need hell of guts and precise plan to attack such place unlike Senkakus. So we already know the outcome of such meeting. Okinawan governors (past/present) will keep requesting Tokyo will keep denying. The only group enjoying will be those contractors, man they got money.

Posted in: Toyota, Hitachi, JR East to jointly develop hydrogen-powered trains See in context

Although majority of the trains are electric, the source of electricity is coal. Especially after Fukushima meltdown. I think Hydrogen fuel cells sounds promising but problem is their stability. Hopefully the have done enough research to make it safe and stable.

I think our health insurance is capped at 60,000 (during one time hospital admission and treatment), Anything above it will be paid by insurance.

Posted in: Mt Fuji gets season's 1st snowcap, 24 days earlier than last year See in context

This will be lauded as proof of climate change.

If the snow cap had come later, that would be proof of climate change as well.

Nope: Amount of snow, snow cap for total number of days (in a year) and wide fluctuation would be more reasonable proof.

Posted in: PM contender Suga hints at consumption tax hike See in context

Speechless duh speechless. Instead of lowering a bit he wants to increase. Onigiri size has already been drastically reduced in size compared to last few years. Bento boxes have already implemented fake designs/dents to put less stuffs in it. Drink bottle size has been reduced to 1.6L from 2L. Man everything will be microscopic soon.
