Posted in: Europe investigates 'attacks' on Russian gas pipelines to Europe See in context

The only motive for Moscow to blow up the pipeline, according to the magazine, would be to “blame other parties for the incident.”

That is exactly what I said in one of my posts above.

That is exactly what Russia want: Let Russia looks innocent and give the blame to the US or the EU.

To make the above seem plausible one would need to do backflips in their head

Let's wait and see what the investigation will bring to light.

In case there will be one...

The Russians could simply turn it on or off - there is no benefit for them in this.

No, because if they just turn it off, all countries will complain and then Russia will again looks bad and that they blackmail the world by turning off the Gas lines.

But now, there is a lot of speculations going around the world, who did it.

Including that the US did it or the EU... or whatever....

I hope there will be a deep investigation and that the real truth will come to light, but I personally would bet my ass that Russia did it, to implement exactly the situation we have now: Blame the US or the EU.

That is exactly what Russia want: Let Russia looks innocent and give the blame to the US or the EU.

"We see clearly that it's an act of sabotage, related to the next step of escalation of the situation in Ukraine,

This thing here is getting out of control.

Sabotage to the Gas Pipeline, which is also a big issue for the enviroment and the nature of the ocean.

Russia will not hesitate to use nuclear weapons and Russia do not hesitate to destroy our planet.

Mass murdering of innocent people, killing women and children, raping young girls...the list is without ending of the Russian crimes.

Russia do not hesitate to destroy our planet including millions of innocent lives.

And the world should and will take Russia into full responsibility for that!

Posted in: Kremlin stages votes in Ukraine; sees protests in Russia See in context

What a big joke!

Soldiers with weapons are going from door to door and force the people to vote.

Russia is getting more and more the laughing stock of the world.

Russia will be at its end soon and they know it.

Therefore they are doing this forced referendums and threatens the world with nuclear weapons.

These are the last straws they have.

But the more the Russians are doing things like that, the more the hate towards them are growing in the world.

More and more people all over the world don't want to see any Russians coming close to them, because of all the horrible things the Russians are doing in the Ukraine.

Countless young guys are fleeing from Russia now, more and more protests against Putin and his mass murdering Mob are raising.

It seems that slowly but steady the Russian population are waking up and see what an insane, full of madness Regime they have.

It's time for the Russian population to stand against their insane mass murdering regime before it is too late.

This full of madness Russian government is destroying your lives, future, dreams AND your familes.

Posted in: Japan to launch domestic travel subsidy program on Oct 11 See in context

Why are people always whining about their tax money?

Now, in this case, your tax money is used for something you can personally profit from.

Or do you guys prefer, that your tax money is used for a new kind of Abe masks, or state funerals or something like that...?

I am living in Japan since many years and I am paying taxes since many years. And now the government is giving me a little bit back by supporting a travel.

If I have the time and the possibilities to go on a travel, and can profit from this campaign, I would be stupid not take it.

Posted in: Europe faces dilemma on Russians fleeing Putin's draft See in context

Everything in Russia will fell apart...Putin and his mass murdering Mob will be drawn to justice, and also all his supporters and followers.

The leadership of Russia protects their own children, but send the children of their population into a war which they can never win.

I hope the Russian population will wake up now and do understand what their insane leadership are REALLY doing.

are you volunteering ?

Of course not! These idiotic Pro Russian War supporters are sitting on their sofa , in a safe country, in front of their 72 zoll TV screen, with Potato Chips, and cheering up their mass murdering Russian Idols.

I am wondering what these people would say, if Russia calls them back, back from the safe country where they are currently living, and send them to war.

Everybody should first look at their own "house door" before they look at others.

Millions of people are taking a coffee break, having a small talk or eating a small snack during paid working hours.

EVERYONE is doing that!

So first, look at your own "house door", and if you are free of "guilt" then maybe you can complain.

*will “use all means available to us” to defend itself *if its territory is threatened.

But this exactly what the Russian As..les did!!!

They did not even threaten the Ukraine, they even invade the Ukraine, killing innocent people including women and children, raping young Girls, shooting at a nuclear plant, torturing people, mass-bodie graves....and so on...the list of their horrible insane behaviour of the Russian insane mass murdering Mob is endless.

And additional, the Russians are threatening the rest of the world with their insane behaviour.

And the whole world should also "use all means available to us" to defend itself...

But the rest of the world is much more clever than these Russian As...les, and they know how to us "their weapons" against Russia in a clever way.

Russia....if you don't change your path, your end is near!

@Antiquesaving

I understand that you need the international tourists for your business and that you really hope that they will come back ASAP.

And I absolutely agree with that.

I also want my friends from my Home country to visit me again here like they regular did before the pandemic.

But so far it is still very annoying for them to prepare all the requirements for the entry.

Especially the Visa.

As long as Japan will not go back to the 90 days Visa free, no vaccination proof, no my SOS App...the amount in tourists will not drastically change.

I didn't see any.

Just some business people who basically came to Japan on a business trip, and had one or two days off to do some shopping or sightseeing.

What a BS!

Show me one hotel who will ban you or kick you out if you don't wear a mask.

Hotels need guests, Hotels need the guests money. They will never ban or kick you out.

The only thing, that they will probably do is to remind you friendly to wear a mask please.

This is a big point.

Japan must go back to the 90 days visa free stay.

Most of my friends and business partner overseas said that the necessary visa is the most troublesome point, and therefore they don't want to visit Japan.

No we don't need more info before we can judge this is a red flag

Of course we need more info.

The Guy said, the girl told him she wanted to run away from home.

If that is true, it must be found out why she wants to run away from home. There must be a reason for this.

Maybe she is getting abused at home.

In that case this guy would be a saviour.

Posted in: Man arrested for abduction of 15-year-old girl he met online See in context

 I wonder if the girl had the freedom to leave or she was happy to be there

Exactly.

I guess she got volunteer in the car and agreed to go to his home.

And who knows, probably these two were just playing computer games together.

We don't know any detail about the whole story.

So a title for an article, abduction of a 15 year old girl, without any detail can lead in a complete false conclusion.

*They’re also releasing murderers & rapists from prison to join the army. *They’ll fit right in.

I 100% agree!

Because that is what the Russian army is, a bunch of murderes and rapists!

But I guess that many of these released prisoners will take their chance and flee from the Russian army and will probably join the Ukraine or flee to another country to be free and not going back to a Russian prison.

Posted in: Japan liquor businesses turn to non-alcoholic drinks to attract Gen Z See in context

I think It is a good thing for many people to have opportunaties for nice places where no-drinkers can go.

But I am not sure if it will be a succesful business in Japan.

Japan is a drinking culture and most of the people want to relax and stress out after work with an alcohol drink.

Most of the drinkers are salarymen after work. Go to Kanda on a weekend. Most of the places are empty or even closed at the weekend, because no after work drinking.

And all restaurants and Izakayas in Japan offers both, alcohol and no alcohol drinks. Among my coworkers and friends there are also some people who can not or dont want to drink, but they dont want to go to a non alcohol bar or something like that.

If they want a completely free alcohol place, they go to Starbucks. And there you can also have a good communication.

And let's be honest...the taste of a non alcohol beer, non alcohol wine, or non alcohol sour is totaly bad compare with the alcohol one.

I had once a non alcohol lemon sour from a supermarket. The taste was very aweful and artificial.

No idea what is more toxic for my body, this artificial one without alcohol or the original one with alcohol.

Posted in: Japan set to waive some visa requirements in October to boost tourism: Nikkei See in context

And yes, they recognise proof of tax from other countries as long as its in some proper format.

@Danny,

Yes, and additional, please investigate and make sure that the vaccination proof of the country you are coming from is in a format which is accepted by Japan.

My Co-worker came from South Africa, 3x vaccinated over there, had proper and clear certificates, but the certificates were not accepted from Japan.

Luckily he asked the airline in advance if his certificates are accepted by Japan, and they said, not from South Africa.

Before he left South Africa, he needed a PCR test.

But that was before Sept. 7th, 2022. So I am not sure about the current situation.

But better double check it before you go to the airport without PCR test.

Posted in: Japan to roll out Omicron booster shots free of charge from Tuesday See in context

*That's probably not going to be how this all works out.*

You nailed the point: Probably.

Probably means, maybe yes...maybe no.

So far the tendency doesn't look good to me.

Like I said above, When we took all the current and upcoming shots, we reached already 5 -6 shots.

And that within 1 year!

But I agree with you, or let me better say, I also hope that, That's not going to be how this all works out....without probably.

So how many vaccine shots are you ready to take?

As many as necessary.

This is also a point to consider...is it really necessary?

But again, to come back what I said above, we are all adults and grown up to decide by ourselves what is necessary and what not.

I have to go back to work.

Have a nice day.

@Elvis

The use of vaccines adapted to the BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants is also being considered, the ministry said.

That article, the more you read it, the better it gets.

You do understand that you need an additional vaccine shot for the BA.4 and BA.5, right?

So how many vaccine shots are you ready to take?

Where is your limit?

I think this is the question which everyone should ask himself.

But I guess there are some people without any limit.

Are we not always told, consume in moderation to stay healthy?

But countless vaccine shots don't sound for me like a moderate consume.

But yeah...we are all adults here and grown up to make our own decisions.

Posted in: Japan to roll out Omicron booster shots free of charge from Tuesday See in context

the shots tailored to the coronavirus BA.1 subvariant

Pfizer on Tuesday submitted an application for its bivalent vaccines that work against the Omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5,

This vaccine here is just for the BA.1 variant, and not for the BA.4 and BA.5.

The vaccines for BA.4 and BA.5 are still under application.

That means, for the BA.4 and BA.5 you need one additional vaccine shot.

So two more shots to cover the BA1, BA4 and BA5.

Which means in total, within the last one year: 5 - 6 shots!!!

5 - 6 times vaccinated within one year? My goodness!

And If a new variant appears...you probably need an additional shot.

the laws will change and they won’t be coming here anymore, you can bet that.

And that is good!

If you are an immigrant, you should not commit crimes in the country that gives you an opportunity for a better life.

And to say thank you to that country, you commit crimes and make the safe lives of the population more dangerous.

And as an additional point...these idiots, who are guests here and commit crimes, are making the lives for us foreigners here in Japan more harder.

No wonder why more and more japanese people want to keep the borders closed.

Posted in: Japan reports 99,491 new coronavirus cases; 9,240 in Tokyo See in context

Herd immunity does not exist with Covid-19…

Then what is the reason why the numbers dropped?

It can not be the vaccine, because like I explained above, same amount of people are vaccinated, same amount of people are not vaccinated. No change since months.

But whatever the reason is that the numbers are decreasing, let's be happy about that and let's hope that it will continue.

I am out for my Mom and Pop's izakaya.

It's friday evening...

I wish you all a nice evening.

Posted in: Japan reports 99,491 new coronavirus cases; 9,240 in Tokyo See in context

Guys...again...we are talking here why the numbers are going down.

Elvis said, because of the vaccine.

That assumption is wrong.

We had about 40000 cases in Tokyo a few weeks ago, with the same vaccination rate which we have today.

And today we have 9000 cases.

The vaccination rate didn't change, which means that not more new people took the vaccine.

Same amount of people are vaccinated, same amount of people are not vaccinated.

So how can the cases drop because of the vaccine, if the vaccination rate didn't change?
