Re: The photo. The Pfizer jab is injected higher up the arm where this lady is having it and is more painful. The AZ is a normal jab.

I can't find a single source to verify this statement. Please provide it.

I had both Pfizer vaccinations and neither were anywhere near that high. It simply has to be in the upper arm muscle.

Posted in: Gov't to release Fukushima nuclear plant water into sea despite fishermen's objection See in context

Continuation and improving filtering, then releasing the filtered water in measured amounts is going to be inevitable. The low concentration of Tritium is of little consequence. Some of the extremely low concentrations of other remaining heavier isotopes will also have almost unmeasurable effect on marine life.

Leaving it in higher concentrations in storage tanks is a poor choice, considering the earthquake probabilities of the area. Moving the tanks will also increase the risk of large leaks.

Some of you are being spun up by irrational conspiracy nonsense being presented by attention-seeking jokers. Remember the Australian nutcase Helen Caldicott, who has never presented a shred of evidence to support her exaggerated and false claims of Japan becoming a radioactive wasteland?

Japan should not be a nation using nuclear power because the geological realities of the nation. However, you have to deal with the realities of where Fukushima is now and not a fairly tale of what you wish it was.

I have a better idea: ship it all to the Senkaku Islands. Its half life is 12.3 years, so it will be depleted completely in about 120 years.

...it's simply a human reflection of a tendency to hire those who look and act like you. Good on United to give a nudge to those hiring.

If you knew anything at all about aviation, you'd know that Part 91 and Part 135 operators hire based on hours, ratings and experience. Race or sex doesn't enter into the equation. There has been, and will be, a deficit of qualified pilots in the future. Race and sex is irrelevant.

This is ridiculous pandering to a false narrative.

This is a ridiculous idea. Anyone can be a pilot if they choose to train and learn. Aviation is already color blind. What are you going to do, force people to become pilots?

Posted in: The Japanese government has appointed a minister for loneliness to deal with issues brought about by the coronavirus, among things. The British government also appointed such a minister. Is loneliness something a government can deal with? See in context

I'll fill in the details:

Tetsushi Sakamoto was appointed almost two months ago, in February. He is a member of the Ultra Conservative Nippon Kaigi (bring back the Emperor as head of state and eliminate Article 9 of the Constitution to build a new Imperial military under the monarchy). He's a typical LDP politician. Perhaps the goal is to put all of the lonely people into the military?

It's rumored that his office is at the end of the hall and no one goes in there. He's pretty lonely.

Posted in: Suga to meet fishing industry chief over nuclear waste water disposal See in context

OK, here's what's going to happen.

First, fishermen don't care about any radioactivity and fish, they only care that someone will buy them. So the government will say that they "gained the understanding" of the fishermen, but the government may buy the fish in the background from the fishermen.

Problem solved.

The problem to both parties is not radioactivity, it is a PR and money problem.

Posted in: U.S. weighs Beijing Olympics boycott with partners, allies See in context

OK, let me see if I have this right. In 1980, the US led a boycott of the Moscow Olympics in protest to Soviet troops in Afghanistan. And now the US is in Afghanistan doing exactly what the Soviets were trying to do.

Check.

Ok, the US led the growth of China by sending manufacturing there so they could make more money by firing US workers and closing factories so Americans could buy cheap plastic crap and clothes/shoes, and the company owners could become billionaires. And now the US wants to boycott for what reason again? Because China is forcing people to make cheap plastic crap and clothes that US companies want?

The world has gone mad.

Posted in: China cautions Japan ahead of U.S.-Japan summit See in context

For all the faults with the US, why are 100,000+ people a month trying to migrate here?

People are scurrying across the US southern border because Americans need drywall hung, cinderblock walls made, vegetables picked, people who will work in meatpacking plants for less than minimum wage and landscaping done.

Employers face no penalty in hiring these people. They are no different than the corporate executives who closed factories and laid off workers so they could have products made in China, selling the future of their children for more profit today.

It the US wanted to stop illegal immigration, it could do it in one week. There are enough national guard and reservists to stand ten feet apart along the 2,000 mile border with Mexico.

China will not back away from its policy of bullying externally and internally because they know that the rest of the world won't stand up to them. Cowards are no threat to a bully.

If you buy a franchise, you go by the franchise rules. That's what you are buying. Consistency of service and product is paramount to a franchise operator and to customers.

On the other hand, it's surprising how little franchise owners of Japanese convenience stores make. you won't get rich owning a konbini franchise.
