Posted in: Japan speeds up COVID vaccine rollout for elderly See in context

You'd think 9 million is a lot, then it's for two weeks. Which means a little over 600,000 per day. Only double the current speed.

Here, it says only 330,000 elderly people have been vaccinated so far. In the whole of Japan. Plus about 3 million healthcare workers, but they started to vaccinate healthcare workers in February, so it can't be 300,000 per day either.

Posted in: Nothing can stop Tokyo Olympics from going ahead: IOC's Coates See in context

To be honest I don't see how properly socially distanced events will be much worse than the packed commuter trains in Tokyo, which run every day in all directions because "it cannnot be helped".

Whoever signs off on this will be having sleepless nights for the rest of their lives...

They won't. In this country it's possible to write off absolutely anything with a "We didn't have choice" aka "Shiyoganai".

Companies say...

Companies don't speak, people do. What kind of polling is this? Did they ask every employee of they asked one PR manager and concluded that "company said so"?

Posted in: Florida offers to host Olympics if Tokyo backs out: state official See in context

In terms of easiness social distancing Tokyo must be one of the worst places on this planet. All the spaces, open and covered, are cramped and crowded. In any other country where there is a bit of breathing space, most Olympic events, if not all, can be organized in the open air and with proper distancing. Swimming, basketball, volleyball, gymnastics - why not?

They took the smarter route and influenced a mass of simpletons through social media for years, and now you have your own citizens turning against themselves while Russia sat back with popcorn watching the fireworks.

Russian is simply learning from the US. Good teachers they are, although short-sighted.

Posted in: Twitter chief says Trump ban admits 'dangerous' precedent See in context

Japantoday's ToS allows moderators to remove or edit posts by users and/or ban users if they violate the ToS. Are you saying they shouldn't be allowed to do this? How is this different from Twitter, Facebook, etc.?

If Twitter etc stayed the scale of JT, no one would care. There should be a limit on how big corporations can grow. Actually, there is - called antimonopoly laws. Doesn't work that well in the US though.
