Posted in: Weak yen morphs into new threat to Japan with surging energy costs See in context

After carefully reading all the comments made by Mr. Shunsuke Kobayashi, chief economist at Mizuho Securities Co.

I gave up hope on humanity.

Your govt made Tourism the top priority to boost economy, kept yen on check. Hotels and roadways were constructed exponentially. While budget on research, science and development were cut down. Ever wonder why Japan was unable to produce its own vaccine? 90% of mask, medicine available in market are foreign made. Those days are gone when there use to be a mark "made in Japan". Except bunch of car and heavy industry companies Japan is hollowed out from inside. J-gov only cared for tax. Tourist will bring money, 1000yen /head. More hotels/restaurant more part timers, more tax, more import of foods/goods more import tax. The whole thinking is a mess.

Now the yen is at lowest but there is nothing to export. slow clap!

Posted in: Japan passes 50% fully vaccinated rate, nearing level of European nations See in context

Lucky to be within that 50%. Hopefully, we'll cross 90% soon and life will be back as use to be.

Well, If the Government says it it must be true. Ha!

You should visit a vaccination center. 200-300 people getting vaccinated per hour like some sort of robotic assembly line. Also, I think the data is automatic updated due to barcode thing. It ain't manual.

Posted in: TEPCO to build undersea tunnel to release Fukushima water; gov't to buy marine products See in context

If they have to dump it simply load it to a ship and dump it 100x km away but No! wait, they want to make a tunnel so that nobody can measure how much radioactive water has been dumped and for how many times. Everything will look calm and clean from outside.

TEPCO plans to dilute the treated water with a large amount of seawater to reduce its tritium concentration to less than 1,500 becquerels per liter.

That is very layman way for 21st century. I have seen similar protocols for dumping acid/alkaline solutions in lab sink. Pathetic!

WHO team wants one more expensive trip again just to waste "donated" money. After year and half it would be nearly impossible to prove anything natural / intentional or accidental.

Posted in: Brisbane picked to host 2032 Olympics without a rival bid See in context

ego fest ??? and to others who think Olympics is useless...

There are many countries who can never be a part of world championship series yet they have athletes who work day and night to achieve something for their country and themselves and Olympic is perfect platform for that. Also, their are some games which has no place in world championship series but Olympics do. Yes its true there is lots of corruption and greed and high level but still its a very decent platform for players/athletes to achieve something. Michael Phelps, Usain bolt would be no-one without Olympics.

Posted in: Uber Japan referred to prosecutors over hiring of overstayers See in context

The operator of the food delivery service changed from Uber Japan to Uber Eats Japan earlier this year.

I have noticed many companies changing their name (slightly) to do all kinds of stuffs (employment/tax/responsibilities etc...) and to get away with it. Uber does not hire delivery staff, they do independent contract with individuals and refers them as delivery partner. This way they don't have to pay insurances and taxes. Good luck prosecuting them. Can't say about the ex-staffs though.
