I can already hear the hords of Olympic players screaming they won't stay there.

The weather had to do a little more to keep people inside rather than the virus I would imagine .
What about Japanese permanent resident holders that hold other passports?
Ask your local immigration office not here.

More companies, including mine, has started teleworking from this week. Even last week when boarding the train I though there were less people than usual.
Something is indeed changing.

Lived and worked in Japan through the 90s and noughties. Could walk through downtown Osaka somedays and barely see a foreign face let alone hear Chinese or Korean being spoken.
Just how did Japan survive back then with miniscule foreign tourist numbers?
30 years ago there was much less old people. Now with the old population, being more often at home, (not to mention that in was the peak of Japanese growth in the 90s) foreign money is essential to Japanese economy.

I bet the movie skipped the part where they sent a team to open the back up cooling system valve but they came back empty-handed cuz the radiation level was too high lol. Russians get it done under the most difficult conditions. Japanese can't/won't
I think they were Ukrainian, mate.

the deadly virus.
Has it evolved into Ebola or perhaps cyanide already?
Tought it was just a slightly special flu type of a disease...

Everyone seems to be on about Karma and that it should sting for Nissan.
But we are talking here about bare 20 million dollars in fine...that will be pennies for them.
Now, among the Corona virus news this will be swept under the carpet.
They chose a good time for a settlement, I say!

That Mrs. ? Sugita who uttered those words "don't get married" later when confronted with it on multiple occasions was pretending she was on her phone. It was so cringy to watch.
I think she is unstable as a person, leave alone a professional politician. ..
It's not her first time either, remember her LGBT statement?

Doubt they are especially highly radiated...
Perhaps a few percentage more than the usual. They would have to be in the vicinity of the plant itself to get a bigger doze, so I would not expect a two head rabbits or glowing zombie bears anytime soon.
I am not sure if the study name is a good title too. It should be more or less how animal behavior patterns change when humans are not around. Instead of the meltdown part...

World is going with EVs so of course Japan cannot join in. Sad
If you meant that the energy needed to fill in those hydrogen tanks is generated from burning fossil fuels then yes, I agree that is not green.
But then again same goes for EV.
In order to charge it one needs a power source. And what is electricity generated from in Japan mostly? LNG, coal and oil.

Fossil gas hydrogen isn't green though, so this isn't a win.
What are you on about? It is.
You burn it and you don't get co2 or other harmful coumponds.
I am curious though about the filling stations. The comprise of highly pressurized (800 bar) storage tanks.
That would give a whole big of an explosion if a terrorist attack occurred.

Just keep'em running. The cheaper the electricity the better for everyone.
Just make sure that tsunami and earthquakes won't bring yet another Fukushima style event next time.

Who reported on him? I guess the mother...
She had enough of it so she reported?
If so it must have happened before too.

Poor Kelly. I wonder how long be will be detained.
And at the end of it, will he be able to get a fair trial.
It seems, now they have to charge him with something coz if he is charged with nothing it would be as if they admitted that Ghosn too had done nothing or that the evidence they had against him was not sufficient from the very start...

Because a certain percentage of those executed are innocent.
How many of them are innocent? One in a million? Would not it be better if they only executed people they are 100 % sure they were guilty? Which I think they do, especially in Japan where they are so anal about double checking everything...

how about road rage or old geezers mistaking acceleration pedals for brakes?

I am a daily urban cyclist here in Yokohama and the amount of times I have seen red light speeding cars/trucks is unbelievable. It is a daily scene for me, more or less. trucks or cars not giving enough space for cyclist is also a common place. I usually catch up with them and tend to leave a feedback in form of my middle finger and a warning about giving more room or not speed like a mad-man... They tend to apologize... but do they learn? i dont know...
