Posted in: U.S. State Department OKs possible $23 bil sale of F-35s to Japan See in context

Many countries including my own abandoned the F-35 for its lack of stability and huge cost overruns. Japan need not feel it has to embrace a shoddy product to appease the USA. There is plenty of evidence that it is not worthy

Posted in: With one year to go, experts warn of high-risk Tokyo Olympics See in context

So much for planning. It's not like they aren't already running at a loss or that any tourist is going to come. It's a show of a waste of billions in taxpayers money. Literally tossed

Also with the next Olympics in Beijing for 2022 you can forget that too. Are they going to arrest everyone?

Olympics is over, and the next one and the next one too.

Could be eight to twelve years

They need a higher sample size, 243 on 3400 tests is 7% infected. Get it up to 10,000 to 20,000 tests a day and we would see the reality

They didn't stop last time, it was the athletes that pulled out not any IOC or Tokyo2020 idea. To date they have not shown any sense of responsibility for the safety of others and as such the decision will continue to occur outside of Japan

As a technology you're better off with electricity and batteries. Hydrogen just means propping up the gas industry and gas industry playas.

Yikes vanity you're not in a safe place. Don't know how a city can have no power then it's not a city. Next up will be insurance paid but not available because it was in the hazard zone. Consider your cautiousness awakened

Posted in: Death toll rises to 56 as rain damage widens in southwest Japan See in context

If you think about the logistics this is pretty impressive actually. While the cardboard is for COVID it's better than only beds. Also thanks to the SDF and volunteers and emergency staff as posted above.

Hope Japan will plant more trees and use the floods as plans for rebuilding more emergency flood plains and general better city design

let's see, mercury, radiation, and don't forget the plastic beads you're eating

This is all bioaccumulative, so it'll need to keep track and tell you when eating tuna is over forever. Probably a countdown. But that's crazy

Or you could have some sweet potatoes.

Posted in: Tokyo confirms 131 new coronavirus infections on Saturday See in context

Despite the three-day string of high infections, Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said the government was not planning to reintroduce a state of emergency, telling a news conference it is looking at overall conditions, including the capacity of the medical system, when deciding the need for the emergency.

Conditions that are a state secret and even if known will simply be changed to serve the corporations, not protect actual people

Vancouver doesn't have the vacancy rate so people will have to find other cities. Any and every country in the world would benefit for highly skilled hard working immigrants and we should all be trying to help

Canada and the USA has a large Chinese diaspora so that makes sense. UK might also be a good idea as Johnson has indicated a responsibility in the face of Chinese crackdown. There are lots of places.

HK had hoped, as the rest of the world had, that China would dial down it's dystopian nightmare over time but that hasn't happened. Its only emboldened their dictatorship.

Time to leave

Saikawa was accused of the same charges and walked away without being put in jail for a single day. All anyone has to ask is why isn't Saikawa in jail if Ghosn is supposed to be?
