Posted in: A 21st-century reinvention of the electric grid is crucial for solving climate change crisis See in context

You will love your EV.

man envy you, problem in Japan companies like Toyota think hybrids are the future and wont give up on hydrogen cars, which have proven to be far more expensive. good YT channel called the electric viking

talks about battery technology and EV uptake around the world, Chinese are close to developing a battery that is 100w per kg, battery tech is moving so fast that the legacy car makers are now scared of being left behind. Tesla runs their cars at around 30% margin, takes Tesla about 10yrs to make 1 car while everybody else is at around 10% margin and 30hr per car. China is about to start mass exporting its EVs and many legacy makers are in for a big shock. Took too long to adapt and unfortunaelty some arent going to survive. legacy maker dont really want evs, theres no way they can fleece customers maintenace and servicing cost with their ICE cars

Rising temperatures drive Oxygen out of water. Bad news if you like sportsfishing. Sportsfish need 10 ppm O2, which goes away at 60 degrees F.

bad if you like fish in general

Fully vaccinated, yet died from Covid?


oh so the cancer he had didnt play a part.? meanwhile almost 5million have died worldwide unvaccinated.

only dummies think not being vaccinated will give them the same survival chances as vaccinated individuals. The science and statistics will prove them wrong everytime

good thing I am not a "foreign visitor".

maybe not but you will be flying on a private companies airline, private companies can require mask/ vaccinated proof for passenger to fly on their planes, after all if theyre legally bound to provide a safe traveling environment , (they can be sued for crashes and loss of life why cant they be sued for spreading covid on their planes) then they most certainly can mandate who can and who cant fly on their planes

@spitfire Baseball is a lot more popular then cricket and cricket is a terrible sport.

oh please, apart from Japan and the US nobody else really plays baseball. far more countries play cricket with a combined population almost 1.7billion. Just because theres more money in baseball doesnt make it a more popular sport worldwide

I love news like this which rubs salt into the still bitter wounds of the loser Remainers! 

100m pound government subsidies is the only thing keeping UK manufacturing in Britain, UK economy is still expected to shrink in the next 10yrs all because of Brexit

Posted in: Japan starts vaccinating people aged 18 or older at large-scale centers See in context

People on this site laughed at me when I said that 50m doses would be administered by the Olympics, however at 26.3M now, maybe I was being too conservative.

need two doses remember so 26m so far thats not 26m people fully vaccinated , thats only about half that number fully vaccinated

Posted in: Mass vaccination site to fill vacant slots with police, other officials See in context

What is the reason? I’ve been told by numerous Japanese people that they want to wait until a domestic CIC one is produced.

by that time the pandemic will be over, these people are assuming that Japan can even produce a vaccine as effective as Moderna or Pfizer and that the Japanese vaccine will have no side effects. so in the meantime they can roll the dice and hope that they dont get infected before a Japanese vaccine is even developed, goodluck

Posted in: 1,799 suicides reported nationwide in April See in context

if Japan had implemented draconian lockdowns the numbers would be far higher and with huge numbers seriously depressed.

year on year increase in suicides about 3000, covid19 deaths so far with lockdowns over 10000,

so what if there were no lockdowns and the virus was free to spread for herd immunity, maybe the suicide rate would have been the same as before covid, but i can guarantee to the covid deaths would be far more than 10000, theres no easy answer for this pandemic, but doing nothing so that people can keep their jobs is certainly not it

Not to mention, 'fully auto weapons' are already illegal to own for regular gun owners. Being educated about existing gun laws should be a requirement for anyone who wants to discuss gun control.

just because theyre banned in one state doesnt mean they illegal in another, there are still millions of semi / fully auto weapons , high capacity clips, owned legally by average Americans, until those weapons are reduced substantially the slaughter will continue. What is it with Republicans why dont they car about AMerican lives!?

Australia does not have as many rich suitors to bring in cash and know-how. There are some, not many.

That's a fact.

heres the facts China is Australia largest export partner buys almost 3 time as much as Japan and is increasing yearly, ironically these same resources and agriculture products is what Japan need also. If Japan doesn't want it Australia will sell it to China India, Korea. Once again Australia doesnt need Japans money to be told what to do by them plenty of others wholl happily take their products

China: US$68 billion (29.6% of total Australian exports)

Japan: $23.6 billion (10.3%)

South Korea: $12.5 billion (5.5%)

India: $10.2 billion (4.4%)

Hong Kong: $9.1 billion (4%)

United States: $8.6 billion (3.8%)

comprehensive study of statistics from Australia , Germany, USA , Canada, Norway , France, HongKong, Singapore, Sweden concludes that Helmet use is associated with odds reductions of 51% for head injury, 69% for serious head injury, 33% for face injury and 65% for fatal head injury. Injuries to the neck were rare and not associated with helmet use. Statistical facts backed up by research. So enough with all the propaganda BS please.

j weddings are just a money pit, best wedding I went to had around 200guests, live band , professional BBQ staff/catering , "Pig on a Spit". all you can drink and eat, everything was a fraction the price of a J wedding. informal weddings are the best by far

Posted in: Foreign job seekers need better preparation for working in Japan: experts See in context

but by and far japan's business practices has helped this island country to have the 3rd largest economy in the world. not too shabby of a mindset, if you ask me. yet it hasnt helped Japan dig itself out of economic stagnation for the last 25+yrs, within 20yrs Japan will be passed by India and be 4th. Japans economic miracle wasnt from its mindset it was from its was from circumstance, they made a good products at are very cheap price while having very few asian competitors. Now China has come along done basically what japan did in the 70s/80s and their economy has surpassed that of Japan, so that must make Chinas mindset better than that of Japan, by your logic
