Nowadays if you wanna get some attention and possible some help you have to have some coronavirus cases.
Launching missiles no longer works.

We don't need to cancel the Olympics, just postpone them for six to twelve months until the situation is under control.
Once the Coronavirus is over (and it will be over) people and businesses would naturally want to make up for lost time.

It's hard to find carbon monoxide detectors at retail stores and the general population is not educated on their usefulness.
If you try to go to a store and ask for one they don't even try to search for it, they say "no" at a lightning speed.
I remember ordering a few online and when I gave one as a present they politely said thanks but it was clear they just couldn't care less about it.
And yes, I also saw people using a kerosene heater in their bedroom!

So, people in a wheelchair will be forced to stand as well? We don't want them to disrupt the ceremony either.

The article is poorly written, Japan has 15 statutory holidays while Spain has 32 paid holidays? Do they mean paid holidays = paid vacation days? or does paid holidays include also include statutory holidays? I assume the term statutory holiday means "national holiday" which is separate from "paid vacation days" So, do Spanish workers enjoy 32 paid vacation days on top of their national holidays or it's all combined?

This is kinda weird.
Obama is not a company executive, manager, or a company worker, he is the president of the United States. You just don't take the president of the Unites States to a .... "restaurant" or let him stay at a ... "hotel" no matter how fancy they are.
Jiro should have prepared sushi for Obama at a state dinner, not in this "shop" in Roppongi. I understand that Japan is trying to promote the image of it's establishment, but these actions are kinda of no no.
I am pretty sure if the White House would have treated Abe to the same deal (restaurant and hotel) there would have been plenty of comments in Japan. I am surprised that the Obama team has accepted this arrangement.
