stay below 140 on a weekly average basis
Hmmm...the situation in Tokyo is getting better day by day, but stay below 140 cases weekly average seems difficult for me.
Probably after the whole population has received the vaccine, we can focus on 140 cases weekly average.
But currently the situation is that cases will fall, cases will rise, fall again, rise again...until the vaccine is roll out to the whole population, this situation will go on and on.

system can control acceleration, braking and steering under certain conditions.
I am worried about self driving cars.
Can we really trust that the computers manage the driving in a safe way?
My car is also a Honda, and I think Honda is a very high technical level car maker....but self driving cars...I am not sure.

as people spent more time at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Lift the stupid SOE, and speed up the vaccine roll out so that people can go back to their normal lives.
Then you will see the DV cases will drastically drop.

Damned earthquakes...always scare me.
It is nice to hear that nobody is hurt.
After so many years in Japan, and experienced the craziest earthquakes, I will never get use to them.

I am big fan of sports and I really love the Olympic games.
Before Corona, I was so excited to see the Olympics in Tokyo.
Especially the weeks and months before a big sports event, (Olympics, soccer world cups...), that is an amazing time. All the preparations, the people are getting more and more excited, shops and restaurants start to prepare for international visitors...
But now, the atmosphere is so different...the atmosphere is very sad.
Olympic Games without spectators and all the nice "Hype" around the Olympics is very sad.
And I am surprised about myself to say that, but...better cancel the Olympics.

An interview with a local yakuza leader
It is always funny for me to read something like that.
Everyone knows he is a Yakuza leader and he is organizing crimes.
But instead of arresting him, they interviewed him.

This morning, two of my japanese commuter friends told me inside the train, that it is already decided to extend for another 2 weeks.
I didn't watch the news in TV this morning so I don't know if it is correct.

I am a pro vaxer and I will take this vaccine as soon as it is available.
Of course I know the risk of a new vaccine and I dont trust what the vaccine company or the self nominated experts are telling.
But, whenever I take a medicine or go to a medical investigation, I take a risk.
I had a big health check 3 years ago at a hospital and when I remember all the possible side effects that can happen...oh man...but I did that examination. I took the risk.
If I read the side effect explanation for some medicine I took or take...oh man...but I took that medicine. I took or take the risk.
Everyone knows, that a new vaccine has a high risk, even vaccine companies are playing down that.
But, if the vaccine is available, I will take it.
After I took it, I will wait and see for upcoming side effects.
In other words, I will take all the risks this new vaccine will bring.

Extended or not, nobody really cares.

Chinese experts reject any connection between the export of its vaccines and the revamping of its image.
There belongs much more for China to revamp its image than just to deliver a vaccine, for a Virus which they set free to the world.
Stop bullying your neighbors, stay away from the Senkaku Islands, go out of Tibet, keep Hongkong free, set free all the prisoners who are locked away without any reason, stop to suppress the Uiguren, acknowledge human rights....and so on..

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Monday urged New Zealanders to "call out" COVID-19 rule-breakers
My God, what is she doing?
Yes, what is the endgame?
Maybe she is aiming at a total control of the citizens!
Bye, Bye freedom!
Adern is making a huge mistake!
There is no possibility of currently eliminating viruses.
Learning to prevent infection is much better than anything else
I 100% agree!

the Japanese government has said it will receive up to 2.66 million doses, with six shots taken from a single vaccine bottle, in March alone.
Around 36 million people aged 65 and older are expected to get jabs from April 12
Things are going on...little by little, step by step...but it is not stopping.
and then finally the general population.
Probably August or September...I guess

Imposing a lockdown to 2 millions for just a few cases is insane. Taking basic prevention measures should be the norm, not forcing lockdowns.
I 100% agree!
That is what I always said, everyone should do their best personal preventions.
The governments should sensibilize their populations to do their best personal preventions instead of forcing them in a lockdown and destroying more lives than the virus is doing.

What I wanted to point out with my post is that the Bank felt very guilty and they apologized a lot because my card was eaten by the machine.
They felt very sorry for all the inconvenience I had over that topic.
But it was not the Mizuho Bank.

It was a credit card, not a cash card.
Like you said, cash card don't have an expiring date.

My card was also eaten once in the past by a ATM machine.
But that was because the card I used was already expired and I did not received my new one.
But the banc apologized a lot to me, because it was their fault to forgot to send me the new card, before the old one was expired.

I 100% agree with Carpslidy!
The New Zealand model is simply not realistic.
Everyone in the world understands now after 1 year, that Lockdowns will not make the Virus dissapear.
To go for a zero corona cases policy by all means makes no sense and is completely out of reality.
I feel sorry for all the New Zealand people who are locked in their homes again.

Tip: get vaccinated when visiting your home country like I will do when I have the chance.
I guess that is not easy.
If you dont have a registered adress in your home country, I guess it will be difficult to get vaccined there.
I remember, when I was in my home country for business, and I got sick, it was difficult to find a doctor who treats me easily and to get medicine prescription.
So I guess to get a vaccine without a registered adress can be difficult.

I would feel much safer if I know that everyone on my flight is vaccined!

I can't wait until my kids are required to do this!
I am in the same situation.
If the school requires this from my son, I will start the biggest mess this school has ever seen.
But I guess the school will not require that from my son, because it is clear that his father is a foreigner and his hair color is natural.*
