Posted in: Go To travel campaign comes under fire See in context

Know a guy who works in a hotel. Cheapest rooms price has been slashed from ¥10,000 to ¥5 000 and the hotel went from zero occupancy to 80%. The staff are over the moon because they know they still have a job. It's a dilemma, reduce and continue to work or close down.

What about the boat? Quite possible it wasn't disinfected or thoroughly cleaned

It's a great idea. Some people live in pokey tiny rooms and going out is a real treat, seeing and chatting with friends online hurts no one and brings pleasure, so why knock it. It could also keep small businesses going as it's a great social distancing measure

This is about the opposition leader resigning and somehow most of the posts are about Ahern?

Amazing to think that Naomi Kawase who was the first Japanese woman to win best Director at Cannes and then went on to win a second Cannes prize is hardly known in Japan.

Why post something online (even though it was a members-only site) that is illegal?

As daft as people taking time off work for sickness then posting themselves on social media on hols/takjng part in sports events/raving at a party

Over a woman? sounds as daft as when women fight over men, people really need to get a grip on their emotions.

How can you have one country/ two system, anyone with an iota of common sense could see this would never work and that's why it was put in place

Even though she withdrew her complaint, the police should have pulled him in for a 'friendly chat'. When a woman withdraws a complaint she might be in fear of her life and that of her child, so no police should just shrug it off. Time and time again, similar situations have ended in tragedy. A stiff talk from the cops might have prevented this murder.

Posted in: Skin trouble on rise as face masks become essential See in context

A storm in a teacup. It is not compulsory to wear a mask, use a bit if common sense. In enclosed spaces, shops/trains/bus/office, wear one. Walking outside there's no need. There are a variety of masks out there, most have soft, thick 'straps' instead of the thin elastic, choose one suitable for you. You can always make your own mask/face covering, so use bit of common sense

Great thinking. Commuting, working in offices with high overheads should not be the way forward in the 21st century. It's time to think Green and to progress with it

@memoryfix agree with most everything you say, except ' slowness in restoration. '

Compared to other countries, I'd say Japan is Speedy Gonzalez

Years and years ago I went to an exposition on how future homes would look like in London. Every single one was built on stilts. I remember how we all laughed. Well, I'm not laughing any more

Posted in: Traffic law to punish tailgating to go into effect Tuesday See in context

I know a guy, calm and sweet as anything, but once in a car he changes into a crazy guy. Can't understand such a dramatic change once he's in the car. Speeding, shouting and swearing at other drivers, getting out of the car to start a fight, tailgating, the list goes on. That's what I call road rage and yes, his licence should be taken away from him before he does any damage

Just a piece of news they've dreamt up so their name appears in the media. Many of my deaf friends get on my well enough in places without sign language staff. Perhaps they should focus more on educating their staff about diversity

I guess that's why Netflix had so many new subscribers they nearly crashed. I guess that's why home centers had almost sold out of all decorating stuff. I guess that's why trash has tripled as people clearout their junk. I guess that's why sales on Amazon if all kinds of food/drink/furniture etc has soared to an all time great. I guess people were working all hours under the sun while at home
