They might never have this opportunity again.

Plus the virus isn’t going to spread itself! Somebody’s gotta do it if no one else will.

Lockdowns have gone out fashion just like COVID and many of the guidelines/measures.

However, this pandemic seems to just be getting warmed up.

In Latin America we casually refer to all Asians as “Chinos”. It’s honest ignorance.

It would be nice to know if the ship’s insurance will cover theses costs and if the insurance companies were involved in the negotiations.

Alcohol is one of the WORST drugs. Unfortunately, our society finds this kind of substance acceptable.

We are setting a bad example for our children, the future of our society.

Kids are at low risk from infection.

He may have been one of the highest paid people in Japan, but I doubt he was earning the same as his American counterparts. Wouldn’t be surprised if these perks were partly to make up for this.

Why wasn’t his salary being accurately reported in securities filings. This is a huge thing. Hard to believe he masterminded this on his own. More like that his company didn’t want to admit to what they were paying him and orchestrated this little arrangement along with the unreported company perks.

Posted in: Showa University medical school admits rigging entrance exam scores See in context

ive been teaching in the Ochanomizu area for years. It’s common knowledge that most medical schools do this.

I’ve talked to staff at medical schools in the area they are shocked that this is even news. So many schools have been doing this and continue to do this. Other medical schools are dumbfounded as to why these schools are being singled out.

it doesn’t make it right or wrong, but everybody is doing it. Good reporting would uncover the extent of this practice.

Too many people ignore others especially in large cities like Tokyo. More citizens should help others in need.
