Posted in: Non-infected Americans from cruise ship in Yokohama to be taken back to U.S. See in context

Why does not the US evacuate infected Americans? There are 428 Americans in all. It abandons them? There are better quarantine facilities and hospitals there.

I would imagine that whoever is involved in the evacuation flight would not want to mix infected and uninfected people on the same flight. Then, instead of having 48 infected people, they could very well have 428 infected people.

That is a considerable sum to each victim/family.

I'm sure it is, but I'm also sure that, even in Japan, the medical costs are enormous. I gave to the Sentai Filmworks GoFundMe campaign here in the US and I applaud Kyoto Animation's resolve in ensuring that all the money goes to those who most need it.

Posted in: Mister Donuts Japan to release sweet potato donuts for autumn See in context

I wonder how they'd keep if air shipped to Oklahoma... I don't usually eat donuts but I'd love to try these. Maybe I could get one of the local chains (like Hurtz Donuts, out of Springfield, MO) to give this a try.

I'd hate to be one of the doctors or nurses there that have to work hard to keep this p.o.s. alive. It must be so aggravating and depressing.

Medical professionals are such because they can rise above such emotions and devote themselves to caring for (as in tending to) the people under their charge. They don't have to like it but they willingly do it. That's why I have such respect for them.

I've read reports/rumors elsewhere that he accused them of plagiarism. Not sure how accurate that is.

People have accused authors/production companies of plagiarism that have been judged in a court of law. Some were uphled while others were dismisses as baseless. Whether or not this person's claim was true, he should have pursued that avenue and not mass murder.

I'm wondering why they didn't pour a concrete pedestal around the supports for the solar panels big enough that they didn't have to worry about mowing close to the panels. That would seem more efficient in the long run.

It's funny, because earlier in the day, I was chatting with Ayumi in the supermarket. Another customer noticed that she was holding a barcode, and then asked us if we were an item...

Why is Japan lagging behind USA, South Korea, and Chiba in 5G? Article doesn’t say.

If you continued reading the next paragraph, you would have found this:

Roughly nine out of 10 firms have not secured enough engineers who can deal with cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT).

Wed have to pay royalties to the Chinese anyhow.

Better to just pay money than to pay money and have your secrets stolen!

InspectorGadget wrote:

Why not just swap residences? Clearly they both regard their current homes fit for habitation.

Why are the renovations required?

Did you read the article at all? I realize that it was the last paragraph, but the explanation is there. So you won't miss it again, I've copied the relevant paragraph below.

From the article:

The retired emperor and empress, meanwhile, will eventually settle in the crown prince's home that will be renamed as the Sento imperial residence. It will be renovated with more barrier-free structures.

Posted in: Wreckage confirmed to be crashed Japanese F-35 stealth fighter; pilot still missing See in context

Redtail SwiftToday said (at 10:12 am JST today)

Been waiting a long time for this.

I feel this plane is dangerous and should not be flying over Japan. It has a crash history. No F-35 in Japan! All of them should be grounded immediately for public safety.

Two crashes in 20 years and you're declaring the F35 dangerous? That's totally unrealistic. It's not like they're dropping out of the sky left and right, taking hundreds of people with them. I feel that you'd be fine with Japan having no ability to defend itself at all, relying on the US for that while whining about it continuously. There's a word for people like you--"freeloaders."

Posted in: Formula One divided as Brexit threat zooms into view See in context

Formula 1 thrived for years without the EU. How is Brexit going to be that great of an issue? I think this is a lot of worry over nothing. If the EU does anything to impede the British-based F1 teams, it wi;; be out of sheer spite.
