Posted in: Traditional Japanese seal system hampers telework for some See in context

QR code’s are outdated technology from 20 years ago, which is why the are not used ‘in the west’. Japan will overcome the problem of their ancient seal system by sending faxes - another outdated technology.

Gave me a chuckle. When I visited Japan a few months ago I was surprised they were still using QR codes. I had to download an App to scan the code at a restaurant. My first thought was why are they still using this outdated stuff. Still, I love Japan and their people guess some things are slow to change. As a cash society, I wonder if they will change that.

Posted in: Japanese health care facilities stretched thin, doctors say See in context

Japanese health care facilities are getting stretched thin amid a surge in coronavirus patients.

Can we have the name of those facilities and there number of beds in use?

Good news for the environment and the over tourism in this country. Let's hope it will stay that way.

Honestly some of these comments are hilarious.

People are dying, the world's economies are crashing and people are commenting on how nice the environment is now....sheesh, clueless liberals.

At a minimum they deserve better pay. Probably should double the 300 yen.

I think all the countries of the world should get together and write a big fat "Thank You note to China" for all the deaths and economic destruction they have caused.

Posted in: Tokyo records most new coronavirus cases in a day as pressure for lockdown builds See in context

What I dont understand however is why this year the virus made the jump from bat to chicken? to human, after centuries of wet markets and exposure. Why this year? They are saying mutation, but that seems odd.

This is exactly what I don't understand! In the U.S. they're too busy blaming Trump but your questions are the ones that need to be answered. Something does not add up. Google Dr. Shi Zhengli, head virologist at Wuhan's BSL-4 (bio-safety lab). She and her team had discovered over 300 coronavirus sequences in bats. So why did the virus make an appearance now? Why this year?

The glaring issue with these analysis is that in times of crisis the president can and should override local leaders to allow for an influx of federal assistance.

State and local governments do not have the same resources the federal government does.

A 2.2 trillion dollar budget was just passed and a medical ship with a thousand beds was just parked off the coast of New York and California.

Not sure where you get your info but it ain't working chief.

Difference is that in the movie, government was the driver for the solution.

In the real world, govts are part of the problem.

"govts", yeah they're not perfect in their response but remove the plural. Only one, China, is the real problem and does not receive enough of the credit.

I wish this guy the best. I hope he succeeds and I really enjoyed the article. Perhaps a follow-up in a few years by JT to see how he's doing....

Agree. He's just another liberal celebrity living behind a wall with security and flying in a private jet telling all of us how we should live our lives and how miserable we should feel.

Posted in: Japanese airline thanks passengers during coronavirus slump with special message See in context

So what is it? Are we supposed to be flying, or not flying? Schools are closed, but offices are open. Libraries are closed, but the Olympics are still on. We're told not to fly, but then get thanked when we do. Confusion reigns.

Great questions. Please ask the media since they are responsible for this over-hyped hysteria.

Flu deaths = 20,000+ deaths in U.S.

Wuhan virus = 50 deaths in U.S.

A Chinese made test kit for a Chinese made virus. Anyone see the irony in this?

I would be a wee bit sceptical as to how accurate it will be also.

Made me chuckle. Agree with the comment.

Time to pull our supply chains, technology and pharmaceutical, out of that cesspool where the Wuhan Virus started.

I think it is everywhere but so mild that all this panic is wrong.

Is it mild everywhere? Most likely. Should we be concerned? Sure.

But clickbait and headlines work much better when you have widespread panic. :)

Here in the U.S. nothing has changed. Restaurants are busy, stores are busy and people go about their everyday business. Maybe everyone should just stop social media and stop watching main stream media for awhile. Hysteria has run amuck.

That's sick! Who does that?

People who believe in abortion?

Here in the U.S. we have the Democratic Party (liberals) that support abortion - of course the baby's body is disposed in a more humane manner (if that's what you want to call it).
