Tennis is a civilized sport. Players need to concentrate and focus.

This is not a boxing match or bull fight.

Hecklers need to be ejected.

Posted in: Japan to provide bullet-proof vests, other supplies to Ukraine See in context

Sorry, my mistake.

The bulletproof vest settlement with Toyobo was $66 million, not $68 million.

And I agree, helmets are also needed to protect Ukrainian citizens and military.

Yes, perhaps, hopefully, that issue has been fixed by now.

All international help is needed. And ASAP.

Posted in: Japan to provide bullet-proof vests, other supplies to Ukraine See in context

This is a very kind gesture by the Japanese Government.

However, I find it bit ironic because a Japanese bulletproof vest manufacturer was sued by the US Justice department for selling defective vests (half could not stop bullets) to Law Enforcement Agencies in the US.

The Japanese company lost and had to pay a $68 million settlement.

Ukraine has four more nuclear power plants.

We should be more concerned about them.

They are active and would be catastrophic if targeted.

Why not educate the population about social distancing?

And then aggressively promote social distancing.

Posted in: New app to allow travelers paperless entry into Japan See in context

I just googled "Digital Agency" and got this tidbit,

"In order to alter such status quo, we at the Digital Agency cut across all ministries and agencies with a digital axis, with an aim to provide services that are driven not toward ministries, agencies, laws, or systems, but toward users and to improve user-experience."

The Visit Japan Web app will launch next Monday.

Looking forward to the Digital Axis.

Posted in: Bus driver arrested after fatally hitting pedestrian See in context

I don't pretend to imagine who might be at fault. All I know for sure is that these bus drivers are under intense pressure to stick to their ultra strict time tables. No excuses. If they don't, there are severe repercussions.

A hell of a price to pay for being on time.

As of today, according to the N Y Times, 50% of Japan has had both shots.

Hurray. About time.

vaccinated people can still enter most EU countries for any purpose, including tourism.

So, as said previously, most of the EU will let us visit, but Japan is making our return difficult and time consuming.
