Beautiful women, heartfelt sorrow for her family, and wish someone would have been there and had the chance to intervene before this happened.

Posted in: Job-seeker harassment coming under increased scrutiny in Japan See in context

In Japan ~ I went to an interview. The interviewer asked me a question I did not like. I got up and walked out. On the way out I said, this just does not feel right. This is not the place for me. Listen, its your life. Take charge.

*"Listen, its your life. Take charge."*

Such a simple response but it is the absolute truth!

We do not need harassment classes or more governmental regulations just get up and leave if you feel uncomfortable.

Rent? no way why put my money into someone else's bank when it is just fine in mine.

Well if you're in the U.S. and single just rent and use the remainder for stock and bond investments.

Pro Tip: Too noisy? Let the doom and gloom people stay home and open the economy back up for the rest of us.

Posted in: Parts of Japan emerge from virus emergency; Tokyo needs fewer than 20 daily infections See in context

I'm amazed that so many of these countries shut down their economies for this. We have nurses in the US. furloughed from their jobs because of not enough work and we're dismantling the "unused" temporary facilities that costs millions to build. First it was flatten the curve now it's turned into no one should leave until we have a vaccine in the U.S. We don't have a vaccine for the common cold nor the flu so don't bet on one for this either. Dr. Fauci in the beginning said don't wear a mask and now he says do wear a mask. It's truly an amazing time to be a sheep.

I read the article to your link. 3,000!? The comments under that article were hilarious. Wonder whatever happened to that guy? It was dated 2010.

Caregivers deserve more pay and definitely more respect. The thing about being elderly is we all will get there unless death takes us first.

Posted in: In Japan, pandemic brings outbreaks of bullying, ostracism See in context

Bullying in Japan?! That can’t be possible given how often in my decade here I’ve had Japanese people make the blanket statement that, “We Japanese are polite and courteous.”

lol so true.....

As a white guy visiting Japan I do sort of stick out. On a few occasions waiting at a crosswalk or riding the JR Yamanote a few business people have actually switched from Japanese to English to make rude remarks about me - I just kept quiet and ignored them. I love Japan and their people and can't wait to travel back but it has sort of tarnished the wonderful image I had of Tokyo.

Posted in: Trump says U.S. may seek damages from China over virus See in context

Good first start. Please do sue. Perhaps a coordinated effort with all our allies.

But what I really want is for the U.S. CDC to interview Dr. Shi Zhengli (bat woman) who worked at Wuhan Institute of Virology and has studied the 300+ coronavirus sequences at the Wuhan BSL-4 (Bio-safety Lab).

But China will not let that happen. :)

Posted in: 568 new cases of coronavirus reported in Japan See in context

Wouldn't it better to let the damm virus run its course and those who feel mild symptoms (of what might only be a cold) stay at home and make sure the more severe cases get the hospital beds?

I'm sorry but logical thinking has no business in the comment section. Fear, panic, doom and gloom are more desirable.

400,000 could die in Japan - Health Ministry

200,000 could die in the U.S. - Dr. Fauci

"could" - Never has so much damage been inflicted on so many people and economies by the use of one word.

As a recovering alcoholic this is not an option for me. Nearly three years sober.

Other than soap and water. Any other alternatives?

Posted in: Many go to work despite Abe's call for telework See in context

Another reasons people cannot telework in Japan is the low level of technology education. Toilet seats literally have more technology than most classrooms.

I almost always disagree with Chip Star but not this time. Chip has a point here and it's something I just can't wrap my head around. It took me a while to figure out how to operate the freaking toilet in Japan. So much technology in Akhibara too and so many phones in use but I think it's the cultural thing that gets in the way here or maybe the offices are just not geared for hi-tech. Just don't understand it. But truthfully, I would hate for Japan to change too much.

Posted in: After virus fades, service industries may be changed forever See in context

When and if this is over, things will go back to normal. Might take a bit more than a few months but things will go back to the way they were before.

Agree with your point.

However...doom, gloom, fear and panic keeps the news departments in business. "If it bleeds it leads."
