Posted in: Digital minister aims to drag Japan out of analog doldrums See in context

And then there are classes conducted for how to use "SMART" Phones.

My understanding, I might be wrong, but things will work in Japan only if there is a printed manual on "how to".

I remember the store clerk going page after page to complete the process of Duty Free - I could have finished a cup of hot coffee while patiently waiting her to finish reading and following the manual.

If these things are made digital/smart, I guess they might be super scared to press "next" button for every step they do.

Posted in: Ground Self-Defense Force issues rare apology over sexual harassment case See in context

Gonoi said in a statement that she filed a case with the ministry, but the investigation was not properly conducted and local prosecutors dropped the case in May.

These prosecutors were inefficient or having a blind eye - should be named and charged for professional negligence?????

I believe an investigation will conducted on this and dropped.

Gonoi submitted a petition earlier this month to the Defense Ministry signed by more than 100,000 people seeking a reinvestigation of her case by a third party.

Only then it is worth for Defense Ministry to approve for (proper) investigation?

Kishida has said the controversial state-sponsored ceremony for Abe would serve as an important opportunity to communicate with other countries

As if he were short of creating meaningful opportunities to communicate. What a waste...Time, money and SECURITY uncalled for....

He might have got excused from going to prison with probably a single known statement "I am drunk and I don't remember a thing." and also "I even don't know why they asked me to step down as CEO"

Posted in: U.S. considering China sanctions to deter action against Taiwan See in context

This is becoming a joke now from U.S. and kinda childish...

For every thing that U.S. cannot control, looks like there is a unique response - "We will impose Sanctions"

Fun part is the general word "sanction" is vague and eventually turning out to be a risk, in which case the sanctions will be limited only to certain things (wouldn't serve the intended pressure).

So far, the impact of sanctions on North Korea, Russia (or China, if considered) were all void.

I am sure they will come out with a rule book stating what can be considered/reported as harassment with a small section to include sexual harassment.

Followed which there will be an education program for say 3 years to make it clear to all SDF members.

As a countermeasure, induction of female members will be .....???

Posted in: Niigata City council member arrested on suspicion of stalking acquaintance See in context

I was expecting a routine "i don't remember a thing, because I was too drunk".

But one thing I learnt from this article is that "Deputy Secretary-General for the LDP" has nothing much to do.

He should also rather try the job mentioned in other article...getting paid for doing nothing

Posted in: Japan to cut COVID isolation period to speed up economic recovery See in context

government will finalize the revisions after hearing opinions at a meeting of health experts

As if the government will reverse the decision if the health experts say otherwise.

And what data will health experts have in their hand, when they don't accept the infected patients.

If one is not capable to use their primal instincts, rely on other's primal instincts (science based facts are still difficult to comprehend, may be).

Anyway, when is the next committee set for "Economy Recovery Plan" ?

consultation service for people having trouble with Unification Church

There may be lots if it is sought for general "people".

At first, may be it is better to prioritize on members and their families who are having troubles.

Who would be ready to make their call first - other that Abe's assassin (he made it bring this to light)
