Posted in: Pandemic raises Japan's suicide rate after decade of decline See in context

There was also a few high profile celebrity suicides which has been shown to act as a catalyst for others to follow. It is unknown just how many of the suicides were due to covid pressures or other causes. The covid connection is reasonable speculation but speculation nevertheless.

The newer machines in 7-11 can actually “read” the cup... so this cannot happen.

There a reason I prefer Family mart! :)

The coffee machine in a Family Mart I sometimes visit has had a recent makeover. The buttons now have English and Japanese...... so there goes my "case for the defense".

Posted in: Japan secures extra Pfizer vaccine doses; Feb 15 approval expected See in context

Kurisupisu...... please stop the spread of nonsense. The Pfizer vaccine has NOT been shown to cause complications in older people or anyone else.

Kurisupisu is probably referring to the deaths of 23 very frail elderly patients shortly after receiving the Pfizer vaccine in Norway. The Norwegian Medicines Agency has investigated 13 of the deaths so far and concluded that common adverse reactions of mRNA vaccines, such as fever, nausea, and diarrhoea, may have contributed to fatal outcomes in some of the frail patients.

https://www.bmj.com/content/372/bmj.n149

Ahar.....23 very sick and frail elderly died within 28 days of taking the vaccine. NOT because they took the vaccine. Though the minor body changes that may occur with any vaccine may have contributed to some of this number.

This doesn’t show that the vaccine is dangerous, but may lead to not giving it to those on deaths door!

Conservative religious sects..... Well, there you have it. Certain people are more susceptible to joining cults. The Trump supporters I know ( otherwise generally good people) :). All have a belief in god in common.

Cell phone found in a lake? Getting directions via ear phones?

There is obviously much, much more to this story. I suspect that someone well known to her was involved. Just who is the “mystery 4th person”? Ex boyfriend?

Posted in: Heavy snow causes 130-vehicle pile-up on Tohoku Expressway; one dead, 17 injured See in context

Two things I hate about driving on expressways in Japan are "middle lane hoggers" and the tailgating that seems to be normal regardless of the conditions. I saw an eye witness report. The guy said there was am accident involving 2 cars and a truck so he had to stop, then vehicle after vehicle slammed into him and the others.

An influential Rabbi in Israel is saying that the vaccine causes gayness. There was a report in the Guardian yesterday. I think I will go with the scientist on this one. Not the crazies!

Reiterating the government's target of bringing its primary balance -- tax revenue minus expenses other than debt-servicing costs -- into the black by fiscal 2025

If only gambling laws in Japan allowed betting on that!

I would literally put the farm on that NOT happening.

And this is why the world is in a mess.... The last two posts.... Maybe the poor fellow was having a meltdown?

Sorry, but the middle of an important exam for OTHERS is not the place for YOU to have your little hissy fit.

You want "compassion"? How about the other students who can read, understand and follow simple instructions having their concentration spoiled by this selfish fool?

I have zero sympathy for the taxi driving clown.

Taking a taxi to Tottori makes no sense. Being a taxi driver he would know that.

These stories are a regular occurrence. Being a taxi driver he would know that too.

Posted in: Japan scrambles to deny reports that Olympics cancelation possible See in context

The ¥25 BILLION has been spent...its gone...Holding or not holding the olympics. Very little is recouped by the even itself. Its not really about the money, more about being seen to waste money. The foreign visitors to the olympics is a widely believed myth.

The cracks have started to appear, I expect an announcement probably in early March..60/40 towards holding a “Japan” only games.

He is nothing more than a western propagandist. Just putting on an anti-corruption face to try to hide his own illegal actions. Justice will be coming his way...soon.

Top tip.... If your husband is abusing you to the extent that you need to call the police and get divorced, you shouldn’t be living with him!

And please don’t start with all the financial hardship tears.... there are shelters, friends, relatives.. Get out and stay out!

These numbers are meaningless.... Just like the grand old Duke of York..

First they were up then they were down then they were up again.... No clear pattern to say anything. Suicides up in winter? Covid or just the miserable cold weather?

Rugby had a huge boost for the 2019 World Cup. Sadly the covid-19 outbreak has killed all momentum and I fear rugby in Japan will continue in its downward spiral..... Corporate teams spending huge amounts on foreign has beens and other foreign players taking the places of up coming Japanese youngsters.

I suffered a loss in one part time job and was able to receive ¥1,000,000 from the government. Even though my overall yearly income was much higher. Meanwhile, many healthcare workers, including those dealing directly with covid-19, are getting their bonus’s slashed as their hospitals and clinics have seen a fall in income.

Mr Suga.... make sure the money goes to those who need it!

1Glenn.... Its simple. Japan has a law that requires all medicines to be tested IN Japan. The reason given is to ensure the safety of the drug. The real reason is to slow down the introduction of foreign drugs to give a leg up to the Japanese competition. They didn't vision a global pandemic at the time.
