Posted in: Japan to boost financial incentives for clinics to give COVID-19 shots See in context

100 or more shots per week over a span of four weeks, and to 5,070 yen for those that give 150 or more shots.

Living in the urban bubble, they just don’t understand that so many single-doctor clinics cannot do 100 a week. The paperwork alone is strangling the clinics

bicycle riders licence should be mandatory

James & Chris, I certainly haven’t done any quantitative research on the matter, but anecdotally, after reading headlines in Canadian papers, I strongly feel that there are far fewer bicycle accidents in Japan. Of course BC Has mandatory helmet laws, but that doesn’t seem to help much.

Personally I’ve been riding bicycles for 65 years, and I am very happy to be helmet free, and happy to not live in a nanny state. Freedom from overregulation is one of the main reasons I love Japan.

Posted in: Mori to resign over sexist comments; Kawabuchi, 84, tipped to replace him See in context

Well this has brought out the Olympic spirit—this comment section is the Ageism Olympics. If you all were espousing sexism, mods would have kicked you all off. But Ageist comments are just fine. The irony here is you’ll all be 84 all too soon, with spry minds, and carping about the young being prejudiced against you only because of age.
