I'm with you Saizeriya. The entire SOE is nonsense. The only thing affected by it are business that operate between 8PM and 5AM. Nothing else. Still crowd into a cramped train. Still in crowded offices and schools. Nothing changed except avoiding the dinner rush by going to get something to eat around 8pm instead of 6 or 7pm.

They are telling me that the company has been hiding his pay for decades. Furthermore, a company, that should have an incredible amount of oversight is claiming that they were held hostage by the only two foreigners? Moreover, audits are mandatory and during decades of auditing and countless accountants, not one person stumbled unto this information nor reported it until Ghosn made plans to merge the company more with Renault making it less Japanese owned? The timing of everything doesn't make sense. Nissan always wanted to decrease the French ownership of the company and when Ghosn forced their hands, they sent the law after him.

There are a lot of business just surviving on loans right now. Many of them are hoping things will go back to normal and they can have a healthy revenue stream again. However, even after a vaccine, many things will not go back to normal. The virus will still be there. Many people and businesses have lost income that they can't recoup. Many people will be paying off bills and that will further reduce spending. There are even some businesses right now that are only active because they are taking loans so they can provide for their family. They have every intention of filing for bankruptcy after everything is over.

I can't imagine being so stupid as to have to be told not to go to a crowded izakaya, maskless and sit drunkly shouting into each other's faces
I don't excuse that behavior. Its reckless and dangerous. However, is it really that much different than crowding into a train 2x per day and a crowded workspace?

Yep. Prioritize athletes instead of front line workers because Athletes are out there saving lives and risking their lives to help people.

If you support porn essentially you are supporting these type of people, who are stimulated by and copy what they see (i.e. grope and abscond with victim's underwear, etc.).
So you want to blame TV for people's behaviors? Just like when they tried to blame shooting games for people using guns. How about blame the system itself. The pressures and failings of a societal system.

I completely agree with you. I don't believe anything can help someone like this. He's victimized women for years. He needs to be taken off of the streets.

Now that the election is over, Georgia is blur for now, and they lost the two senate seats, Republican lawmakers and the vice president now want to do and say the right things. They are as much to blame for this as Trump. They encouraged him and went along with it because they were worried about losing two senate seats or their other reelection bids.

What do you mean ? Too little of death ? or Too late to die ?
Japanese may never be right in your eyes, but we can survive.
No one is judging the people of Japan or saying they want Japanese people to die. Most comments are fighting for the people. The cases started gradually increasing since October. People were also worried. People were tired. People were scared. The government could have done something but instead chose to wait until the cases have exploded for beyond an amount the government can control.

Japan: "We are now in a state of emergency. Everything will be business as usual; however, please try not to party after 8pm." Thank you for listening.

When businesses have reduced travel, visitors have stopped visiting, and people not going on long distance trips as much due to the pandemic, its only natural for accidents to be reduced. A decline in events that would cause an accident naturally attributes to a decline in accidents.

This is why the Olympics needs to be canceled. Its an uncontrollable situation with an uncontrollable virus running around. Its a recipe for disaster. All over the world, they are trying to hold sports but struggle to properly contain the smaller scaled events. Yet they want us to believe they can adequately control something as large as the Olympics? There isn't a bigger event.

This isn't even about who you support anymore. All politicians on both sides seriously need to go. The economy is in tatters. People are starving and dying. They can't even properly vote on a stimulus plan to help people struggling yet they want to bicker and fight over this? They keep pushing back voting on things that matter but seem to always have time to bring up new election related fights. Doesn't matter if you are Democrat or Republican. The system needs to go. Both sides are failing the people they serve.

For a country that wants to focus on pushing more women to the forefront, they seem to keep finding ways to deny women taking more leadership or symbolic roles.

I don't believe dating sights destroy relationships and marriages. I think its because people are unable to unplug or disconnect from technology. Today, people are always connected and always doing something. There isn't any real time for appreciation and no real time to actually miss someone.

What an asinine assumption! MOCHI isnt the problem! People's stupidity is! Every year some elderly folks, who should not be eating mochi do it anyway, and choke to death because of their stubborn belief that they are immune from anything happening to them!
They don't believe they are immune. Its a proud tradition for some that they have partook in since as long as they can remember. Traditions mean something to a lot of people.

That's called "discrimination," and it's illegal.
Its only discrimination if its forced. Its an optional service that you pay for if you partake in it.

The most interesting thing about the 4 day work week is that Japanese firms were the first to implement it overseas. About 10 years ago, Toyota started trying it out in the EU and North America. They found it successful and other Japanese firms have tried it abroad.

Isn't it time that Japan joined most of the Developed World in the 21st Century?
Join the rest of the developed world? This is a plight that is currently affecting many all over the world.
They are sexually harassed or assaulted at a staggering rate of 40% yet people refuse to accept when experts say they believe the 2% rate for women is drastically underrepresented.

I can understand their disappointment. A great film deserves the chance to compete with all other great films regardless of language. However, the golden globe sets their rules. As frustrating as it can be, we just have to accept it or start something more inclusive and with a wider acceptance scope.

My only question is How? With all the brothels and sexual services around Japan, what makes hers any different? Even a person void of any senses can easily locate these services in Japan.

Trump is actually on the Dems side on this one (as they wanted much larger payments, being the socialists that they are), so...
The democrats have already fully endorsed Trumps changes and want to get the deal done. Most democrats and Pelosi have already publicly agreed with Trump.

.this is all about payback....
I don't think its about payback. Trump honestly doesn't care about the Presidency as much as people believe. Right now his main focus is rallying his supporters to donate where he is expected to leave the Presidency with well $300 million in funds after the election debts are paid. That money becomes his and he has free reign over it. That is all Trump has been focusing on.

I may not support Trump and its been disgraceful the way he's ignored his duties since the election. However, this is by far the most presidential thing he has done. The way the democrats caved on this topic was disgraceful. The fact that Congress only wanted to do all of this last minute while Americans suffered was also disgraceful. This is where Trump can shine by pushing these money wasting politicians into actually using the money for the people versus themselves and corporations.

All I keep hearing about with the Olympics are ballooning costs for an Olympics the people don't want but Japan and the IOC keep pushing for. They really refuse to quit and just keep throwing money at it.
