I know, why don't all countries give up nuclear everything. Then, we won't need war.

Just name a time and a place. I'll jab circles around these slowpokes. All I need is a white doctor's jacket and one of those headbands with a mirror.

Posted in: China, Japan trade acrimonious barbs over Fukushima tweet See in context

If China is pushing the case that this is not common best use practice of the wastewater it's a good thing. That means for everyone! Seriously, where are the US and Russia! It seems impossible that they don't have a voice. Why is it China South Korea only? Other countries raising their voice about this horrible way of disposing wastewater is needed. To say South Korea and China are criticizing the releases kind of implies that it's revenge for wartime history which is nonsense. I welcome China's and any other countries criticism so long as they are participating in iaea to protest releases by accident sites and all nuclear plants for that matter.

If the wife does get convicted, it would be interesting to know who would get all his money. Does he have a next of kin or wakayama ken and the federal government get all the money and fortune. There are many kinds of gold diggers.

Not to worry, everything is under control. We are winning the war against the virus. The vaccine and herd immunity will fix everything. The virus will mutate itself out of existence like influenza has. No need to make any other plans.

It's inevitable that governments must prepare for scenarios where the vaccines are ineffective and/or people refuse to be vaccinated thus not reaching herd immunity.

This is the norm so releasing was their plan all along. They could have evaporated it already otherwise. Do you think they'll test every batch of water like they test every fish?

It's about time officials finally lightened up a bit. If more people are having their lives ruined in such a way, I'm surprised the article didn't refer to this as a human rights issue.

Quasi state of emergency in Miyagi? Is that because of the chicken hawk substandard governor? Maybe mr murai is not man enough to wield the authority for a full state of emergency.

The construction companies got their money and then some after increasing the price of the bids. Not All is Lost, there are still mountains to pave. The only people that lose are the common people and their service establishments. Hopefully the insurance companies will take a hit too.

Posted in: Japan wants food import curbs imposed after Fukushima crisis lifted See in context

Science can't be trusted sometimes. Especially, when ratios are used. Ammounts of strontium and plutonium are not tested in many cases. Ratios are used from tests that had low results of plutonium be and strontium. It's obvious they are not checking all the fish.

Posted in: Japan to stage Tokyo Olympics without overseas spectators See in context

No spectators because the public is sceptical? We are sceptical about fukushima dai ichi, more. I guess this is their way of saying the vaccines are not very effective. Is t the virus supposed to mutate out of existence like influenza did?

One becheral equals one disinigration per second in your body. Measuring microsieverts and miliseiverts outside our bodies does not measure relevant effects on our bodies.

Internal exposure to radiation was not taken I to account thus it's not accurate to judge harm to humans and other animals.

Brain inflammation is associated with the virus which could cause such a problem. In other words, good luck trying to get the 44 million yen if such a thing happens to one of your family members.

Posted in: COVID vaccine for elderly to be distributed based on population proportion See in context

I understand elderly are more vulnerable in the short term, but considering the article and how places in the countryside with few infections would be given priority because people are old doesn't seem to prioritize actual vulnerability. Obviously, people in Tokyo who are old are the actual most vulnerable. It could be based on other factors that are not disclosed. For example, people in the countryside have lots of land assets and their sudden death could be problematic for a lot of reasons. Some of what virus rex said made sense, but I'm not sure if one were to compare virus distribution with old age distribution.

Posted in: COVID vaccine for elderly to be distributed based on population proportion See in context

Just asking, you've gotta catch up with the times, there are new mutations every time I check the news. I had trouble with the mic, but my point is, by vaccinating the young who should do the chores, working, riding trains, etc, they could cover the most vulnerable to catching the disease thus increasing the effective USE of said vaccine. The article is about effective USE, but I'm trying to understand why elderly should have first priority.

Posted in: COVID vaccine for elderly to be distributed based on population proportion See in context

Assuming the vaccines are effective, which I do not, it would make more sense to vaccinate the workforce because they are the ones who go out every day. workers in the house or the ones who would bring it home to the elderly. Workers who are younger the ones who would suffer for a long time from the effects of an infection. Workers are the ones who would put strain on the medical system in the future to pay for open damage. How is it more effective use to give the old people the vaccines who can stay at home because they don't have to work?

Posted in: Vaccinating children: Is COVID-19 herd immunity possible without them? See in context

If suppose the vaccines were effective, it wouldn't take much science to figure out that the young are the only ones it should be vaccinated. If a young person where to get sick they'd have to live with the damages for a long time,where as, an old person would die soon and not have to suffer or be a burden on the state for long. Duh

I'm glad that there are no irregularities at the nuke plants beyond what's already being released otherwise there might be a mess exodus of panic. I'm sure there are no controlled releases.

Posted in: EU approves first shipment of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to Japan See in context

It's plausible that they're trying to sell these vaccines before everybody finds out how ineffective they are. The AstraZeneca vaccine is not effective and we'll see about the Pfizer, but it doesn't look good. it appears the virus is a runaway train that's left to the vaccines at the train station. How could this happen? I thought viruses were supposed to mutate themselves into a harmless state. How could they be changing and getting so much worse? Could it be that the vaccines are allowing the stronger and more dangerous traits to prevail? Nobody knows? When are they going to come clean with us about this virus?

Is the virus mutating out of control because of the current leaky vaccines that may need to be changed with each mutation (we don't know)? Is it possible? Coronavirus says, "holding my beer."

Posted in: Japan to lose trillions of yen in consumption with virus emergency See in context

How did they get these estimates of loss? From what I understand, only restaurants and drink bars will be closing. People will be eating at home and drinking at home. They still have to spend the money to do that at home and it produces tax revenue, not to mention the effects of price gouging and panic shopping.

Virusrex,

That was a valiant effort, but you keep differentiating between humans and animals. Humans are actually a kind of animal you know. I'll think about what you said. I respect your opinion and you do have some interesting points, sometimes. In all honesty, I hope my suspicions are not right in this particular case.
