You coudl save money not buying new rice cooker.

You could simply pour a little water into cooker and let it boil. Believe me, steam does a great job. As for the display, it could be cleaned with hand sanitizer. That's just my opinion.

When read the article you get the feeling that JGOV moto is "we want a covid infection 0 before the Olympics at all costs, after the Olympics who cares anymore"

Even if you are vaccinated, is not guaranteed or known that you can't become infected and transmit the virus. The only difference is that your body is protected from a more severe form of the disease.

So the only thing that counts for me is that you have a negative test.

But it will be funny to watch the reactions of the vaccinated, when they get quarantined.

Posted in: Woman says she left husband’s body at home because she thought it wouldn’t fit into coffin See in context

I don't believe this statement came from the lady ...

It is quite possible that the lady simply fell into a state of denial, due to the shock / trauma she experienced when she found out that her husband had died.

The thought of getting your entire 18M investment back in three weeks ...

There is something wrong with this article.

If the lady is not torn apart by bank scavengers, her investment may be recouped in 10 years or so.

Under the condition that Japan re-allows entry into the country for all tourists, may they be Chinese or Martians...

It looks nice on paper.

There is a rather offensive term in my country for hunters, which came out mainly because of such events: "Green uniform drunks with a gun license"

An article telling us that the number of new cases has increased.

However, another article announcing the withdrawal of state of emergency.

I'm wondering what the outcome will be.

Posted in: Freezer firm to investigate after vaccines wasted See in context


LOL at the above comments. One freezers fails out 100 that is 1% defect rate. That means 99% are working. The standard defect rate is 5%. in manufacturing and it is higher in the west.

Aha, yes of course... I can quite imagine the reaction of the client at the presentation of this fact after a couple of tons of vegetables or meat was destroyed.

I work in a company where we deal with refrigeration (food industry).

The essence of cold rooms is to keep a desired constant room temperature which is displayed on the computer (SCADA) so that in case of failure of the coolers and the consequent rise in temperature, an alarm is triggered (but not the same as for an air attack :)).

What I want to say is that beside displaying the alarm on the control computer, the person in charge also receives an SMS to take the necessary measures.

So it seems strange to me that no one knows how and when this happened because all the abnormal conditions are also kept in event logs.

Posted in: TEPCO says Fukushima nuclear plant seismometers were broken See in context

The general function of seismometers is to stop the nuclear reaction by insertion of the control rods. 

Given the high seismic activity in Japan, seismograph control at a nuclear power plant is among the most important tasks. The persons responsible for the safe operation of the power plant should therefore be held criminally liable.
