Or is this just a show to give the impression that the government is tough on Denstsu, while allowing the company to do whatever it likes?

This is a welcome change from yesterday, when Kishida said he had no intention of letting him resign. What this arrogant jerk doesn't understand is that when he signs a execution order, he is doing it in the name of the Japanese public, a portion of which is against the death penalty, and a larger portion thinks it is nothing to joke about.

It does cause harm to the child. Imagine how a kid would be treated if other kids found out they had "two mommy's".
This was the logic behind banning people of different racial backgrounds from marrying in 1950s America.

Hollywood accounting! They are moving some of the expenses over to other events or budgets in a desperate attempt to win back public approval. Too late, guys.

Don't forget that if people pay for their own test and then test positive, it does not go into the official count. That ups the number. The 20 million are only the people approved for testing by the hokenjo who tested positive and early in the pandemic, many people who wanted to be tested were refused because they did not have a high enough fever. The real figure is probably much higher.

The same thing happened to a boy last summer. You would think that one tragedy would make teachers more careful.

He was disdainful of the constitution and democracy and displayed a poor understanding of the financial circumstances of the average resident of Japan. Yet we have to pay for his funeral. His family or his political party have more than enough money to pay for this.

The government just announced that people don't need to wear masks outdoors if they are 2 meters away from others. But that doesn't apply to tourists. Who will check?

And he won for a role that is all about being your best self. He obviously learned nothing from his own movie.

The whole technical training program needs to go. It is just an excuse to put people into menial jobs paying them nothing or far less.

There is a larger problem no limited to Uber Eats, which is bicyclists think they do not have to stop at red lights. They think it is OK to barrel through and pedestrians have to leap out of their way.

Does anyone know if these numbers include tests and positive cases from the Athletes' Village? My guess is no, because those are probably not done by public health centers. Does anyone know for sure?
Low testing numbers, which are usually not announced or if they are they are not reported, are leading to low positive case counts. I worry this is giving people a false sense of security. If the public were being tested like the Athletes' Village has been, the numbers would likely be extremely high.

These daily figures do not include people who test positive in tests they pay for themselves, such as people who take tests before traveling or those who do not want to deal with the public health centers. This should be mentioned every time these numbers are reported.

"Fully vaccinated" means 3 weeks between shots plus 2 to 3 weeks to build immunity after the second shot, or 6 weeks total. So fully vaccinated by late October means everyone getting their first shot by mid-September at the latest, one month from now. About 20% of the population is fully vaccinated now, to get that up to 80% would mean covering about 60 million people. So every day for the next 30 days first shots will need to be administered to 2 million people.

Volunteers are "paid" with a bottle of hand sanitizer, a mask and a free lunch. Are they at least given time to sanitize their hands?

About 9 years ago, the Tokyo International Film Festival had a program that was going to be called "Contemporary from from Taiwan" or something like that. China pressured the organizers to change it to "Chinese Taipei." Since film festivals are supposed to champion expression, I thought they would refuse but they caved in.
