Posted in: Nationwide system failure hits NTT Docomo; disruption continues See in context

For those on Rakuten, the bulk of their network piggybacks in Docomo. Their 5G stations are their own only and many less that Docomo. My 5G phone is fine, older iphones/androids / fliptops are affected. Might want to educate yourself Mark. Or just a case of 'Big Telecom' bashing?

For now. Rakuten is building their own network to be independent of olden days company like Docomo.

I don’t think they really need any plan. They just need to point out the sliw response of LDP during the pandemic.

77% of the entire adult population (aged 18+) has been reported to be fully vaccinated.

This is really good. I feel like I am protected even when I walk among many people.

Good thing we don't have ridiculous anti-vaxxers like the US.

If company owners are allowed to own multiple companies, then employees should be allowed to work in multiple jobs.

People don’t see the injustice in that.

Last month, the prosecutors searched the headquarters of the university and Nihon University Enterprise as well as the home of Hidetoshi Tanaka, chairman of the university's board.

These search result to nothing but intimidation. What were they expecting to find? A printout of a fake transaction?

Japan will be the last country on Earth to remove face masks, long after the pandemic is over. Sad but true I'm afraid.

If we should get a “sex offender list”, we should also get all the other crimes list - from murder to jaywalking. It doesn’t matter if you served your time or rehabilitated, if you do one crime, you’re marked for life. No chance for self redemption.

Is this what you want?

If I don’t have my DNA on my wife, she’s not my wife.

The defense should have looked for other DNA on the wife’s fingernails. But given that only prosecutors can do the investigation in Japan, the husband is screwed.

I’m not surprised the judges found him guilty. In Japan, there is no “guilty beyond reasonable doubt”. They impose “guilty unless proven innocent”.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,067 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 7,212 See in context

Where are the conspiracy theorist’s, number crunchers, anti government and doom and gloom squad today? Three weeks the number of infections have been going down yet to them it still not good enough.

In every infections, waves will peak once it reaches critical mass, then it will go down ALL THE TIME. How much down is what we should be looking at - not the current "it's going down".

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,067 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 7,212 See in context

I understand the deep need for some positive news, however this short term view of the pandemic is what has consistently led to wave after wave of record breaking numbers. The aim should be succesively smaller waves, so perhaps its prudent to wait to pop the champange until the numbers drop below prewave base (if they in fact do).

True. It's always been a race against time. Get the vaccinations done as fast as possible before the next wave comes.

Posted in: Japan passes 50% fully vaccinated rate, nearing level of European nations See in context

You should visit a vaccination center. 200-300 people getting vaccinated per hour like some sort of robotic assembly line.

When the process reaches the militias, it's really fast. The problem is always at the start with the government. They slow.

Not Nippon Kaigi is good. Younger is good. Would be nice to have the more liberal DPJ lead again for a change, but Kono is not bad. Not bad at all.

I'd say the number the number that matters is the number of dead. And if there are so many dead, where have the Japanese hidden the numbers?

The fact that dead people don't get tested for COVID?

said the bribe givers and prosecutors may have struck a plea bargain

Japan is using "plea bargain" wrong. Only Japanese prosecutors can make "plea bargaining" - used so the court and government won't spend a lot of money in trying a person - cost much more. They use it to aid their false confession tactics.

This is hard to understand for Republicans. They refuse covid vaccine, which was tested world wide on the entire population, but willing to take Ivermectin with just anecdotal efficacy. Talk about stupid.

Should she become prime minister, Japan would move even farther to the far right with her pre Second World War mentality, even worse than former Prime Minister Abe.

She sounds like one of the ol' boys, except she's a girl. No for me.

Japanese dont take kindly to politicians who abuse campaign funds and get caught!

So are we going to pretend like Japanese politicians giving and taking bribes isn't the norm? As if. It's happening all the time.

These punishments do nothing. The ones giving them are also guilty of the same crime. It's stupid that people think this cleans up the government.

Personal choice.

People who are unvaccinated are the ones getting severely sick nowadays. So I don't care if you are unvaccinated anymore as long as I can protect myself from irresponsible selfish people like you.
