burning bush:

Like SARS, this virus seems to be more serious and virulent among ethnic Chinese.

Most of the deaths overseas are of Chinese people.

That's great. That means all those racist white people out there who verbally and even physically abused Asians around the world can now rest assured they won't be affected by it much, even if coming into contact with the virus. As rainyday days, hope you informed WHO with this important nugget of information.

"I am Japanese. I was very hurt to see comments about the coronavirus."

This sounds as if the person who wrote this doesn't mind if the racist remarks were directed at Chinese.

You don't have to mention your own nationality.

But the Japanese at the end of the article has got it right. Glad to see Japanese like him/her exist.

There was a group of Koreans who were abused in the UK because of the coronavirus. I hope the Korean media covered that story. Not very nice being on the receiving end.

By waiting and pondering, in the end, the Japanese authorities will have had their minds made up for them . The passengers will all be affected by then and then the authorities will have no choice.

Bernie won the “popular vote” in Iowa. Why isn’t he the winner?

I don't know. I mean, why wasn't Hillary the winner in November 2016?

pro-slaughter the babies at 40 weeks supporting

And yet, as soon as that fetus slips out of the womb, are the republicans going to care that it could grow up in poverty, or without a loving family, or could be suffering from illness or a disease? Are they going to help out financially? Will they still be so 'pro-life' that they want more and more guns to be made freely available to murder innocent people? The hypocrisy and lack of IQ really astounds me.

If half of America wasn't so lowly-educated and brainwashed by cults and if republican lawmakers had a spine, a dellusional, pathalogical liar would never have made it to the WH.

rgcivilian1:

So dont' panic or buy into the climate change bs because it occurs no matter what

Oh, for god's sake. I am assuming you don't have a scientific background (or possibly even a college degree). Yes, climate changes on large timescales. During the past one million years or so, we have had glacial cycles each lasting around 120,000 years. We are currently at the warm peak, called interglacials, but temperatures are continuing to go up. And guess what? Temperatures and CO2 have suddenly been going up a lot since the Industrial Revolution, circa 1850. Have you seen the Keeling curve? CO2 hasn't been this high since the Late Pliocene, about 3 million years ago. Basic science tells you that the higher the CO2 level, the higher the temperatures will be.

People with a certain agenda, or those ill-informed are in self-denial.

Posted in: The South Korean film "Parasite" won four Academy Awards on Sunday, including best picture. Yet, foreign-language films with subtitles have a hard time drawing mainstream audiences in English-speaking countries. How do you feel about films whose dialogue is not your native language? Do you like watching such films with subtitles? See in context

JeffLee:

I've noticed that whenever something is said about the Japanese in western movies, it is somehow not translated at all for viewers in Japan.

For example, when Uncle Vernon in Harry Potter was saying how he was telling a joke about a Japanese golfer. Or in Bridget Jones, when Mother was saying that the Japanese were a cruel race!

Jeff Ko:

Parasite is a story about a poor family infiltrating a wealthy family but the twist is that the wealthy family was already infiltrated by yet another poor family to begin with. So those two poor family fights for scrabs in the basement of the house and the husband of the maid hiding in the basement ended up killing the daughter of the poor family disguised as the art therapy teacher. And the father in rage ended up killing the patriarch of the rich family. So what started as a comedy end up in a killing spree

Yeah, I know, but can you give other people a few spoilers from the movie.

Thanks for the link. I was wondering how they did everything. When I first saw the trailer, I really did think Megyn Kelly was playing herself! I didn't even recognize Charlize Theron in the trailer.

I was shocked at the amount of salt in one serving.

browny1:

Yes, I always try to avoid food in styro-foam containers. A waste and certainly not environmentally-friendly.

I like pho, and a shop nearby sells the same brand in bags for 80 yen and in a big, thick plastic bowl for 90 yen. I never ever get the one in the bowl, and it's not just because of the price.

Posted in: Virus transforms daily life on Hong Kong's fearful streets See in context

Unlike HK, Japan doesn't rely too much on necessities from China like bog roll or rice. That's why the HKers are panicking, what with the closed borders. But then again, hoarding, panicking and stripping shelves bare sometimes seems like a national pastime in HK.

Posted in: New train route eyed between Haneda airport and Tokyo Disney resorts See in context

Is it really that difficult to have more trains serving between the Narita Airport stations and Narita station instead of just one per hour? Not everyone wants to go into central Tokyo. There are lots of connecting trains from Narita station. The same with Hokuso/Keisei line. Just one per hour? Come on! As soon as you get to

Inba-Hihon-Idai, there are lots of other trains.

No wonder so many people find Narita Airport so inconvenient, including those who live closer to it than Haneda Airport.

Posted in: Korean film 'Parasite' takes best picture Oscar; acting honors go to Phoenix, Zellweger, Pitt, Dern See in context

I don't know whether it was worthy of an Oscar or not but I certainly enjoyed it. Thanks to the airline on which I saw it. I probably wouldn't have watched it had I not read that it had won an international award, but so glad I did. I enjoyed the twists and turns. There's just something about Korean movies that gives them an edge over Japanese movies. Congratulations to the director, actors and the rest of the crew. Also glad it wasn't yet another one of those Asian slapstick comedies with tarentos or 'singers'.

Just one question - why is their toilet up half a level and not on the ground?

And I have no problems enjoying films with subtitles - better than dubbed movies.

He's obviously a top skater but I don't think he deserved it this time.

Didn't watch it, but I do think he was very lucky in getting those two Olympic gold medals. His first one, he was falling all over the place. The second one was due to the debuting Chen being nervous in the short even though he outshone Hanyu in the free. Anyway, all the biggies will meet next month.

It is my understanding that any passengers who are infected, taken to hospitals, and then recover are to be put back on the ship immediately. Are they really that scared of foreigners?
