Posted in: Japan reports 77,722 new coronavirus cases See in context

I was out again last night and several different venues with friends and customers.

I must have natural immunity but the postcards keep coming.

The authorities aren’t interested in my experience with the virus but strangely enough for the latest booster shot which is ineffectual as the virus is constantly mutating.

I keep my diet healthy and plenty of vitamin supplementation has aided my health to suppress infection for years now.

Funnily enough those simple facts aren’t made obvious enough to the masses for some reason!

Don’t throw money away buying small overpriced food.

The only time I use a convenience store is when life is inconvenient which isn’t ofte…

It’s opened my eyes to the fact that governments don’t have a clue, arbitrarily introduce unnecessary restrictions and LIE to their citizens.

I’ve become enlightened…

So, obviously the comments were negative not positive.

The students are doing badly?

Find a way to aid them before mouthing off!

Posted in: Kishida dogged by domestic scandals on international trip See in context

Kishida is just another of the privileged political elite that have little in common nor do they wish to have,with the average Japanese.

Why are Japanese politicians continually accepting dodgy funding,misusing public funding,supporting abusive groups and failing to lead by example on climate change issues amongst others?

Most of the above would lead to expulsion from employment, loss of income or a court appearance for the majority, would it not?

The only logical conclusion is that the state itself is corrupt and a failure!

Complete overhaul is necessary…

Posted in: Italian detainee dies in apparent suicide at Tokyo immigration See in context

I can say that Japan is extremely strict about foreigners entering the country on tourist visas.

3 times or more in a year will have you in a small room with threats of being searched etc.

I thought that the dire state of Japan’s overwhelming need for foreign labor might have softened immigration’s stance but it seems to have only gotten stricter.

The question to be answered is why are foreigners killing themselves and others are dying under the control and supervision of the Japanese state?

To die in a foreign country, alone without any sympathy is extremely saddening and tragic.

Why would a Chinese citizen need their Chinese driving licence renewed in New York?

What an implausible and obviously false reason given here…

Posted in: COP27 climate talks hurtle toward overtime; countries mull EU offer of fund See in context

So, what are the delegates eating at COP27?

Would it be seafood, beef, chicken etc?

Exactly right, all of the above!

Surely, the menu available should be largely locally sourced and vegetarian, no?

I don’t see how hundreds of thousands of people can live in sub zero temperatures.

Those people will die either by starvation or cold.

Those thousands will most definitely not prevail!

Posted in: IAEA: Decision on Fukushima wastewater release up to Japan See in context

If Fukushima were such a safe location then we would have expected Tepco officials and Japanese politicians to have made huge real estate purchases there due to the abundance of land post tsunami.

Which politicians have made Fukushima their second home?

What ‘international standards’ allow radioactivity to be released into the environment?

What a load of tripe!

"Pyongyang must immediately cease its destabilizing actions and instead choose diplomatic engagement," Watson said. "The United States will take all necessary measures to ensure the security of the American homeland and Republic of Korea and Japanese allies."

There aren’t any measures that can be taken.

How about dialogue which Donald Trump initiated and which led to the DPRK not launching missiles during Trump’s time

at the helm?

Many food items are running at 25% or more-wages are not keeping pace and it is the poor that are suffering as food is a bigger part of the weekly/monthly spend than the well off!

So, the language now being taught in Japanese schools for the conversation test is Philippine English?

The way forward is clear then….

Actually it was the Korean state that heavily promoted English education in schools and other areas that has paid off-nothing to do with confidence!

Going out in public and being photographed wearing next to nothing?

The photographer is not to blame.

Anyway, banning public photography is not possible as states need to keep an eye on their citizens.

“If the company won’t bargain in good faith, why should we come to work where we are understaffed, underpaid and overworked?” Montana said.

If I were a fan of the evil empire then I would have much to think about next time whilst sipping on my double mocha latte crapuchino.

Japan and its obsession with making language a subject to be graded is laughable.

The fascination for the ‘correct answer’ cannot be applied to communication as say for a problem in maths or geography where one answer is the norm.

How about changIng skimpy shorts and thin shirts for more modest clothing?

How about not racing in public and only screening an edited version of the race?

How about censorship of public photography and publishing photos?

Whrtr is the line to be drawn?

A great idea as the raping of the planet will just go on and on.

In Japan, I often wonder what the route is that allows wild animals such as meerkats and Fennic foxes to end up in cages for sale?

Posted in: Japan racks up trade deficit as exports, imports hit records See in context

The reason for the massive deficit is down to the manufacturing companies shifting production overseas.

Japan Inc went global a long time ago and so did the jobs…

I have a home test for possible infection but I don’t know if there is a test for antibodies which is available-I’ll ask some medical contacts of mine here

Posted in: Kishida fails to shine enough at G20 summit to boost his image at home See in context

The prime minister "has to promote various policies" such as security through overseas trips, Toshiaki Endo, chairman of the LDP General Council, the party's decision-making body, said last week. "We should unite to support the Kishida administration to satisfy the public."

Well, Kishida’s wife certainly has enough opportunity to go shopping and sightseeing even if hubby Kishida is largely ignored.

And why is this being repeated ad naseum?

The gathering came as fears mount that Moscow might use a tactical nuclear device for a limited strike in the war.

Unless Russia is directly threatened by antagonists and the state put in peril then Putin has stated more than once that nuclear weapons would not be used

Posted in: Princess Hisako becomes 5th COVID-19 case for Japan imperial family See in context

Funny since catching Covid in Japan several months ago and not really bothered about it now and going out to bars and clubs etc.

Well, either I have been very lucky or I have natural immunity.

I’mnot willing to shell out for an antibody test even if I could find a hospital willing to conduct one…
