Posted in: You've got mail: 'Abenomask' distribution starts in Japan See in context

Here's real proactive action. Not getting the attention it deserves;

TOKYO (Reuters) - SoftBank Group Corp CEO Masayoshi Son said he has secured a monthly supply of 300 million face masks for Japan after reaching a deal with Chinese electric vehicle maker BYD Co Ltd, which has also started producing masks.

From next month, SoftBank will supply two different kinds of mask, initially for medical staff, in cooperation with the Japanese government’s “mask team”, set up to tackle shortages due to the coronavirus outbreak, Son said on Twitter.

SoftBank, which last month said it was donating 1.4 million masks to New York state, will supply the masks without taking a profit.

One reason for the recent surge in infections is believed to be the importation of cases from abroad,

This is where the blame begins to be shifted from the policy of non testing as a critical disaster response.

Canceling instead of dragging their feet on what people already want, Closure would perhaps resign the masses to the seriousness of the situation, then help to make it a bottom up effort.

Posted in: No Plan B for Olympics; questions remain over Chinese presence See in context

A Japanese reporter asked Tokyo organizing committee President Yoshiro Mori if, given the fact the games are going ahead, would there be any "organizational changes" in how the games are run.

"No, at this stage, no. We are not thinking of any such possibility," said Mori, a former Japanese prime minister, speaking in Japanese.

No plan B. This is exactly the bloody mindedness that has caused issues with the linked corruption & climate denial in the selection, and consequent moving of events. If it is an issue later, who will be thrown under the bus, not Mori I'm sure.

Iizuka told investigators shortly after the accident that the brake did not work, but he later said there was a possibility he mistook gas pedal for the brake because he panicked, according to investigative sources.

Shortly/Total BS, he stuck to that story for well over a month, before he was confronted with the mechanical evidence that he couldn't refute.

I feel bad for the prosecutor who had to interrogate him. Imagine asking the same thing 7 hours a day for 100 days and convincing yourself you're a worthy person.

They do it on rotation, quite common for them, and the police to use the justice hostage for practice, even in minor cases. Repetition Q&A is the breakdown method
