Posted in: Progress made in Japan on gender wage gap, but more must be done: gov't See in context

I’m currently pregnant and a sole proprietor. Sole proprietors are not entitled to maternity leave payments the same way that full time employees are, even though we pay into the same health care and tax system. Given that women are more concentrated in contract work, temp jobs, and freelance work in order to balance home life responsibilities and not have the pressure of work commitments outside of work hours, I am surprised that maternity leave benefits are not extended. It’s difficult to decide to have a child when you know you won’t get paid at all during childbirth.

Posted in: Japan studies giving 3rd coronavirus vaccine shots next year See in context

I read that the vaccine starts to weaken after 6 months so to be most effective we’d need the booster to be available as soon as January for people who were able to get early vaccines.

it was incredible to watch!!

I would hardly call .76 second difference “obliterating” his old record.

In a competition where you can lose by a hundredth of a second, beating a world record by seventy six hundredths is indeed “obliterating”.

@hiro

Funny thing is, he actually think France is gonna sanction Japan for this kind of thing. Btw, he lived 15years here already. Why he would think France could even have him is beyond me.

My understanding is that the children are dual nationals so are considered French citizens. That would be strong reason for France to take action.
