Posted in: If the Tokyo Olympics were to be postponed until 2021, for example, how could the extra year’s preparation be put to good use? See in context

It will give them an additional year of spending to increase the black hole dimensions of the "budget."

I'm pretty sure he doesn't care whether she gave it him or not. It's not HIV.

Of course they will claim they had no idea the shipping label said S Korea.

If vigilance = testing, Japan can't hear you Asia.

Posted in: Japan finds 15 clusters of coronavirus-infected people See in context

There's plenty more to be found if Japan wishes to find them. But hey, when all you truly care about are the Olympics, why bother.

Might as well, since most of the kids are out and about on the street anyway.

Posted in: Do you think social media sites are helping or hindering the flow of accurate information concerning the coronavirus? See in context

If the social media is from a reputable source - WHO's twitter, for example. But I pay no attention to those who post below it or who are know it alls.

Posted in: What is the point of exposing details of the infected people's actions? If they took a subway train, are you going to stop taking that one? See in context

It gives the public the informed choice. Period. Would you inform us if there were a man armed with a knife roaming a specific train station? What about terrorists? So yes, if I was informed that someone with Covoid 19 had yesterday taken my nearest train/station, I wouldn't use it.

I guess nobody in Nara knows of the basic common sense reason why "don't feed the ducks" signs originated?

So when booking travel there, are you booking hotels starting 14 days after arrival?

Posted in: 3-year-old girl dies after being hit by truck in restaurant parking lot See in context

Drivers fault by admitting he decided to cut thru a parking lot to avoid an intersection. Parking lots aren't there as cut-thrus for lazy drivers.

Throw some blame to parents for not watching their 3 year old at 9:30pm when dark outside (wouldn't matter if middle of day), as though their child is immortal.

Posted in: Japan virus infections, including cruise ship cases, rise to 1,496 See in context

And in Japan, it's almost impossible to get a test by a doctor, so you can guarantee that number is 10X higher at a minimum. Can't wait for the Olympics!

So it will all balance out since consumers here have been getting ripped off on overpriced, heavily marked up items for decades.

Posted in: P&G CEO on products for older folks; cutting back on plastic See in context

The logic is simple. Don't tell me plastic bags are evil, yet stores still buy them to have in stock "just in case." Meanwhile, 50%+ of the items sold in the store are also wrapped in plastic which are one time use and into the garbage. In the Starbucks and other fast food examples, they single out straws, yet oh well about all the lids, utensils, etc.

Specific to Japan, I count dozens of running vehicles routinely parked on the side of roads with people playing on their phone, watching tv, napping, and sometimes nobody in the car at all. Japanese REALLY dedicated to the environment. I guess the atmosphere doesn't count.

@David : Refunds are always done thru point of purchase. If you have questions, there is most certainly a phone number to call on the back of the ticket. Or contact UDO who is the promoter.

Posted in: P&G CEO on products for older folks; cutting back on plastic See in context

The cutting back on plastics is nonsense. Either ban it so it's no longer being produced and available to anyone, or get off the plastics are bad bandwagon. You're gonna charge me for plastic bags at supermarkets, but whether I buy one or not, the store already purchased them with stacks sitting ready to go. You've solved nothing. No different than recently visiting my home city of Manila, and all Starbucks in Makati only give paper straws (which suck because they start falling apart before you can finish your drink), but they are more than happy to sell you a plastic straw if you so choose. But I guess they thousands of plastic lids and cups don't matter.

Posted in: Abe tells Trump Japan preparing for Tokyo Olympics as planned See in context

If Japan will be ready for the Olympics, then no need for all these travel bans and self-isolation and other steps now. It's basically saying everything will be fine no matter what's going on in the rest of the world.
