I hate wearing masks but if the bus / train is privately owned, either respect the rules or get the hell off.
You don't go into someone else's house and ignore their rules. Pretty basic stuff.

Ballsy to ask for consideration from the EU right after spending months trashing the EU, blaming the West for Russia's invasion, and rooting for Russia to win in annexing Ukraine.
Imagine the disaster it would be to allow Serbia into the EU only have them obstruct legislation and blackmail the EU with the unanimity rule the next time Russia invades another country like Moldova or Georgia.

Unbelievably stupid idea for several reasons:
It's a performative show of disapproval that accomplishes nothing.
It stops money from exiting Russia and flowing into EU businesses and wages.
It stops the "brain drain" from Russia, which is the most powerful weapon the EU has against Putin.It hurts normal, powerless people; not aristocrats.

Any country that cannot grant LGBTQ+ people full equal rights in 2022 should be absolutely ashamed. That includes Japan where, as covered by Japan Today, a court recently stole a trans person's legal guardianship of their own children!
LGBTQ people should not have to wait another decade for bigots to "evolve" on these issues...

So these criminals are the only people capable of leading these companies?
A better idea: seize their assets and break up Samsung so it’s portfolio of businesses can operate independently and properly compete in the market.

China wouldn't dare try to forcibly annex Taiwan if they had nukes... The US could easily remedy that... just pointing out an obvious solution that would stabilize the whole region and make everyone less afraid of war.

I have been a loyal tax payer in Japan for 9 years and work in an industry with a critical talent shortage - tech sector - yet I have only 65 points on the PR eligibility scale and therefore do not qualify for PR.
If the government wants to fix this problem and attract foreign talent; they should fix this.

Put American nuclear weapons in Taiwan, end 'strategic ambiguity', have a formal and open defense pact, and make it clear that Taiwanese voters will be the only ones to decide their future.
This will solve the problem.

Decarbonization of energy grid to reduce dependence on fossil fuels states like Russia- addressing climate change, inflation, and the economy in a single stroke.

Ban gas hookups to new buildings!!! This is low hanging fruit for Japan especially being home to the biggest heat pump manufactures in the world.
This is the single biggest, fastest thing Japan can do to slash green-house gas emissions by 30% which in 15 years; reduce energy dependence on autocrats, and help the domestic economy.
Also, IH cooking is 50% more energy efficient, 90% faster at heating, 30% faster at cooling. Heat pumps for water and air heating/cooling and IH cooking emit less CO2 even when powered by dirty coal power. - Frontier Energy Study.

They can do what they want in private; why do they feel the need to shout about it in public. It's a deliberate provocation.
Because so many people think like you. And think these people are "less than". They want to proudly proclaim their existence to backward people who still think LGBTQ people don't deserve equal rights. It's for your education. And to set a president that they have no reason to hide who they are any more than you should hide who you are.
Sorry if this disappoints you, but there are many different kinds of people in the world. They have equal right to exist. They are just as valid as you are.

Sending arms to Ukraine is the best investment the West can make to further weaken a dystopian Russia and set it back 100 years to where it seems to want to exist. It can’t function in a modern, civil world with its current leadership.
Actually, it's the best The West can do to support Russian people. Every Russian political upset followed the loss of a war. A liberal-democracy Russia is possible. Supporting Ukraine is how we can help Russian people fight for it.

What specifically will they do to reduce emissions?
They should announce specifics. For example:
Ban gas in new construction. Switching to all-electric buildings (induction cooking, heat pump boilers and environmental control by specific date.
Date for banning the sale of non-EV / plugin hybrid cars. Also, more rail in highly trafficked corridors.
Date for phaseout of coal plants. And farther out date for banning gas and oil power generation.
Date for switching to green metal processing.

Olympics is highway robbery of taxpayers and the middle class.
It's a hundreds of billions of JPY giveaway to the IOC so they can sell advertisements.
And it's a massive redistribution of wealth upward to property owners who can extract more from the middle class with higher rent prices...

This idea is illiberal and should be opposed.
Just as we should legalize marijuana and similar victimless crimes, we should not move backwards on tobacco.
This is not acceptable in a free society!
