They didn’t include anything about the game in the sports section. Strange just to have a photo of it. What happened in the game itself?

This sounds like the same situation for the Tokyo Olympics. Why are people against China for doing the same thing?

Very impressive result from Japan. It looks like they will be one of the top nations in world rugby in the very near future.

Apparently after the World Cup, Rugby became the number one sport in Japan for young people.I think the national coach should give Japanese players a chance to play so that will help improve their skill.

Japan has really led the way with overcoming the virus. Lockdowns were not necessary. It has been life and work as normal. Well done.

It seems that the people who are against this are those who have a reason to be worried. If you don’t do anything wrong, then there is no need to be against this. It’s a great idea to keep the community safe.

Posted in: Gov't leans toward lifting state of emergency at end of month See in context

What State of Emergency? I haven’t noticed any changes. I’ve been working and going out as usual. Companies and schools have operated as they always have. In some countries, police have been checking on everyone to make sure they are following the rules. I haven’t noticed that in Japan.

This proposal will definitely pass. I think it will give minor nations more opportunity to compete against major nations.

I don’t think they would need to go to New Zealand. Very quiet corner of the world, except for people interested in Rugby.

I guess that only foreigners could be mistreated in an immigration center.

Posted in: Apple's next iPhone mirrors last year's, adds more storage See in context

I might think about it. I’m still using an IPhone 7. Hard to believe people need to upgrade every 1 or 2 years. I guess you need to take care of the phones more to make them last.

Actually the British team was banned for taking performance enhancing drugs during the Olympics. Glad to hear that they were punished.

I don’t have a TV and while there was an excellent website available for the Olympics, there was no way to watch the Paralympics live.

I think that a lot of people responding on here about splitting the bill and the wife being a homemaker only are talking about the older generation. Most younger women in Japan work hard and also pay their own way.

The interesting point for me was that they play basketball in the Britain. Never heard this before.

I don’t understand what America is still doing there. They haven’t made any progress in improving the situation. Over 20 years later and the group they ousted are back in charge.

Why don’t the teams in Scotland join the EPL? Hardly a competitive league with only two teams.

Unfortunately, all the attention goes to the Men’s basketball team from Japan. Never heard anyone mention the female team who seem to be of a much higher ability than the men’s team.

The Winter Olympics is not such a big event. I imagine that a city like Sapporo has the required infrastructure already.

That was a surprise result, especially because Japan has players in the NBA. Most Japanese fans predicted a medal for Japan in this tournament. They should win their final two games though.

Unfortunately it seems the English supporters are already blaming the Chinese and others for the racist tweets. Nothing can be solved until the people admit there is something wrong with their own country.
