This happens in other countries as well. Was reading about the same thing in Australia recently. Always check before reversing a car is the number one rule.

Also it seems that there are old fashioned ideas among the comments here. Only the mother is responsible for watching the children. It’s time to update our way of thinking.

North Korea don’t want any help. They are known as the hermit kingdom for a reason.

It sounds like she had an accident when walking through the woods. Animals often scatter remains about the place after that.

The IOC was the one that let her skate even though she had taken drugs. A bit late to the party now to start to care.

Every event at the Olympics is broadcast by the IOC. They have a website with a link to the video and commentary in every event. Hard to believe people complain about the tv coverage in this modern era.

Posted in: Canada wins gold in women's speedskating team pursuit after Japanese skater falls See in context

Reminds me of the historic first ever gold medal for Australia in the Winter Olympics. This happens often in speed skating. They won the silver which isn’t a bad consolation. It is making me laugh when people complain about the news reporting on Japanese athletes in the games in the country of Japan,

A lot of people say it is not performance enhancing. However it is on the list of banned drugs. A person who takes a drug on the list has to be suspended. That’s all there is to it.

A lot of people seem to think that this was not intentional. International athletes know by now what is on the banned list. Kick her out and set an example that this will no longer be allowed.

A previous poster asked the question “Why is a shotgun needed in Saitama?” To them I pose the question “Why is a shotgun needed anywhere?” If this had been in other certain countries, it would not even have been news.

I have lived in Japan for a long time and never felt the slightest need to vote. Most people can’t be bothered voting anyway.

Posted in: China says U.S. diplomatic boycott violates Olympic spirit See in context

Who cares if diplomats go to the Games or not. A stronger statement would be to not send the athletes. It is only the Winter Olympics though, so it’s not the biggest event to attend.

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?

Posted in: Beijing confirms strict 'closed loop' for Winter Olympics See in context

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.

Posted in: Kiwi connection looms large as Japan face red-hot Wallabies See in context

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.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 36 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 345 See in context

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

This shows that Soccer in Asia is getting stronger. Hopefully they will be awarded with more teams in the World Cup competition.

Posted in: JR East scraps plan to identify past offenders with facial recognition camera See in context

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.

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.

Posted in: COVID spurs dramatic surge of 'konkatsu' among middle-aged people See in context

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.
