It is an issue that exists in all apartments worldwide.

Check the building management rules and regulations and try to have them mediate.

Just to add on, no one says the masks is 100% effective. But by doing so it can reduce the viral load which can affect how serious the infection can get.

The evidence of masks usefulness have been done so many times.

Given that aerosol can transmit it is pretty obvious that masks work.

The masks non requirement initially was based on the assumptions that it can only be transmitted through droplets.

Selfish people is going to be selfish anyways, thankfully most Japan residents are socially responsible.

Hope it doesn't get hindered by capitalism, cause costs of the new concrete alone will affect choices. It isn't the first time better concrete have been developed but the initial costs is a major roadblock.

Posted in: Why do you think so many Japanese people (and foreigners, too) continue to go out and about in Japan's major cities despite the surge in coronavirus cases? See in context

Cause there's no one way to it.

If the lock down is to stringent the business suffer and you'll get deaths due to social issues.

But if you do nothing then there's no sense of fear which causes complacency and end up with high infections and people doing stupid stuff like hosting large events without precautions.

The government is putting part of the risk management to oneself which seems to be reasonable in managing the sentiments but not great in controlling infections.

Posted in: Fukushima locals criticize government for tone-deaf tritium mascot See in context

I don't think people are understanding radioactivity.

Tritium is safe, in fact there are tritium keychains being sold as a functional item.

Just Google and read a little more before trying to sensationalize everything.

Posted in: ANA provides luxury meal experience on parked airplane in Tokyo See in context

I don't think people get that this is to help the airline stay afloat instead of providing a good deal as it costs money to park and pay for service crew.

Food should taste better due to the altitude, but I wonder if they will adjust the flavor due to this.

Well if the country's mainstream media can sprout unverfied claims with no reprecussions it is basically free for all propanda cause they form their own "trusted" sources.

Posted in: Japan to allow use of insulin syringes for COVID-19 vaccines See in context

For those that don't understand, basically when you finish injection there's usually a little left in the syringe, the so called 7-shot syringe have very little "dead space" such that with the miniscule amount saved from all the 6 shots you have enough left for the 7th shot.

Posted in: Swiss voters narrowly back ban on full face coverings in public places See in context

I'm mixed with this, while i have no issues with them covering up when they are outside but if they ever enter an establishment i feel the owner of an establishment have the rights to dictate to a certain level that does not violate the national laws to protect their establishments.

It is also why most high security locations and financial establishments do not allow sunglasses as it weakens their security protocols.

So i'm kind of against the law but the law should be tweaked to allow establishments to dictate to a certain extend so their security cameras can fulfil the role of protecting the people inside.

While it looks like he's doing good in the greater sense, he should really help relocate the animals instead of staying there as it unnecessarily creates a separate problem that others will have to manage.

Didn't know there are so many fire fighting experts here.

So far throughout the world forest fires have always been difficult. The key have always be trying to prevent it in the first place.

Why take risks and eat at the restaurant, if you want to support the business just order as take out.

There have been cases of poor ventilation causing clusters, so why take the risks especially when the new variants have been proven to be more efficient with infecting.

Posted in: Parents of bullied teenage girl who committed suicide commission portrait to 'attend' Coming-of-Age Day ceremony See in context

Despite the many responses of her not wanting to be with the bullies, i personally think it is good as it sends a very strong message and triggers everyone who is attending the ceremony be it the classmates, bullies and teachers.

I feel that not talking about it and sweeping it under the carpet is more disrespectful to her and to those who may be facing this culture right now.

Whether the comments are positive or negative it has definitely played its part bringing up the conversation and hopefully saving someone cause it made someone think twice.

Posted in: NTT Docomo to lower large data usage fees under gov't pressure See in context

The cheaper options only started a few years back as well.

The problem with some of these "contracts" that people are stuck with tend to be a multi service bundle with TV and fixed line Internet.

It is good that this is being accessed lots of other countries have the same issues as infrastructure do not allow foreign competition leading to this possible "price fixing" amongst the monopoly vendors.

Regardless of whether he's famous or not, businesses have the responsibility to keep people safe.

It is no different from standard workplace safety where you need everyone to observe safety protocols just that in this case the protocols are new.
