That’s normal for all the biggest of their branches , so not very unique to that company. They all became number one and global leaders only because they did not pamper their employees wrapping them into satin sheets. No, they make wet hard knots in those sheets and whip you into maximum efficiency. And sometimes beat you out of this world.

@1glenn. Thank you very much for the explanation; my appreciations. It seems I still have to get used to it, if someone’s girlfriend is 48 or even in her nineties. Maybe, I‘ll still use ‘a female friend of his’ or something like that. lol

What a strange question. Of course that’s also voluntarily in a free society. They don’t have to show up and also can even leave the match or facility at any time and do something else what they want to.

Posted in: Man arrested over murder of girlfriend in Kyoto See in context

A short linguistic question only… Do they really use now the word girlfriend for an already 48 years old woman in English language? A romance, a female lover, a beloved lady a woman of his heart and similar such, that’s probably what I would use. Girls are up to 19, at maximum up to mid-twenties. Right, wrong?

Posted in: Sports days have positive effects, not only in improving physical ability but also in allowing students to bond. They nurture a sense of cooperation through physical education classes held prior to the event. Although schools have been asked to take various measures and reduce school hours amid the pandemic, I hope sports days will be kept as a way to enhance the learning experience for students. See in context

That’s in most cases only funny for the parents , for meeting, talking, eating together and watching their children, as well as for the teachers, to justify their existence and high wages. But for the bigger part of all those little children it’s a real torture, exposed to masses they don’t know, pressured to show good results in extreme summer heat and much more, now even wearing exhausting masks because of corona. For improvement of physical abilities they already have the daily walk to and from school , sports lessons and club or other private free time sports activities.

Posted in: Australia's Victoria logs biggest rise in COVID-19 cases in a week See in context

Of course a short lockdown never will work as the viruses can manage to survive up to 71 days (plus possible standard deviations added) in vivo, that means in living material like us or wild animals or pets and all such. So it’s even clear for an idiot, that a lockdown under those 71 days is the same as no lockdown at all, still isn’t it?

they have practically completely cut off any direct connection between international visitors and Japanese people

Neither practically nor completely…Alone all those remaining 70,000 volunteers near the facilities and maybe a similar or even multiple number of medical, service , cleaning, room making, cooking staff etc. inside the facilities that simply isn’t and can’t be true. Not to forget the unoutspoken ‘traffic’ in both directions at those later hours from evening to morning. You know, many might like it more local and not so trans or athletic…lol

Posted in: 15-year-old boy arrested after stabbing gun shop employee See in context

Yes, there are gun shops, I’ve seen one. Everything is secured and locked. But I doubt that they can sell much, because only some hunters might be eligible to buy a gun after many years of lessons, tests and exams. Of course they sell the usual other stuff like survival and camping goods, army knives , outdoor clothes and accessories and all such. About a decade ago or so, there was a news, that even a foreigner managed to buy a gun, after being fluent in Japanese for taking the hunter’s license exam, as he was some kind addicted to life in nature, forests, hunting and so on. A very rare case, that’s for sure.

Posted in: The program not only helps the old owners, who were struggling to utilize the properties and pay taxes, but also for the town by reducing the number of abandoned buildings that could collapse or otherwise pose risks in the future. See in context

They surely don’t need a single Yen that is from due land or house taxes as those are not more than a preschooler’s pocket money in comparison while they still can afford to give vaccinations away to other countries or doing such useless things like sending big military JSDF ships and servicemen to missions in far away Mali or fire JAXA rockets and satellites into an outer space nothing and so on, much more. That’s more only a small show campaigning to attract a few small businesses and young families into unattractive aging and dying areas.

If ever caught, put that monster also in such a coin locker for a few days, so that she can get an imagination of how the newborn suffered. She instead of course won’t die from it, but maybe learns a little lesson for the next time.

Posted in: Saitama police chief arrested for stealing rolls of toilet paper See in context

That’s not so uncommon that especially the more wealthy or rich people are stealing as if they would die in poverty within the next few hours. lol And in most cases that stolen things are not so extraordinarily expensive, in contrary, a perfume here, a tool in a DIY store there and in this case some toilet paper rolls. Some of them are sick and some are only bored when stealing and the rest needs new career refreshing publicity, but surely all are not so greedy, because they already have everything.

Yes, a nice and friendly gesture…but someone also provide simplest education. 750,000 vaccine doses are by far not even sufficient for the biggest city Taipei. And yes, that’s still valid if you add the help from Japan.

Posted in: One year after Yokota's death, little progress on abduction issue with N Korea See in context

And that’s exactly the problem. Any small contacts, official meeting, projects or supporting help, communication, money etc. only with strict and fair preconditions, one of them for example the return of all abductees or clear informations about their whereabouts. Such regimes and dictators only understand a clear language and a strong setting for everything, otherwise they will only use and play with you, telling you just nothing although they of course know everything and even if Megumi lives right next door.

Posted in: Putin says Russia ready to continue peace treaty talks with Japan See in context

That can only be a first small step, because the main and real kernel of the dispute is about the rest, namely Karafuto up to the 50th parallel and the other Kuril Islands up to Kamchatka. Therefore the right procedures would be, first the return of the four occupied islands of the Northern territories, then second the peace treaty signed and finally third, negotiations on how the disputed rest is distributed. That could be southern Sakhalin for Japan, with the merit of quasi continental access and all other Kurils for Russia so that their submarines never will be blocked, fishery and sea or sea ground resources included. Or that could be Japan giving away the southern Sakhalin part and potential future continental access , but in return receives all the Kurils, that means the four that it owns anyway and all the rest up tu Kamchatka in return for that Sakhalin part. That would of course also fit , because it’s by character an island nation , surely favors more fishery and sea resources than now and also that solution would have a more historical tribute to the Ainu. On the other side , Russia has surely then big fears , that the whole Pacific Ocean could eventually be blocked. A long way to negotiate…. The real current situation is of course another, that’s obvious, but it’s not a good situation for both sides.

Posted in: Japan donates more than 1 million AstraZeneca doses to Taiwan See in context

Very friendly, the intentions to help out Taiwan. But and only Astra? What maximum crazy moron had this idea? If I were Taiwan I would ally with China and occupy the Senkakus for that enemy-like act of delivering the worst efficient , most unclean and sometimes even killing vaccines as a ‘present’. Just be at least so clever and give them a mix of Astra, Pfizer and Moderna or so, to keep the damage small.

Posted in: NFL eyes Germany to host games in future years See in context

The idea is not so bad. Quite some people like it, not only in those former NFL Europe cities but also the many fans who support other local teams in other places. My advice would be, not to ignore them and to include them anyhow, for example by a wildcard or playoff system so they have a motivation to get in the highest or that new league. On the other side, economically it’s all more something for the long run. I can’t imagine that it will profitable in the first years, maybe it never will. Probably only at the beginning some cash comes in when all enthusiasts buy some basic fan equipment, but afterwards deficits will be the normal case, especially if it is only tailored to the main cities , those with the new NFL teams, and the big rest feels just only ignored or excluded.

Posted in: Japan protests Russia's impounding of fishing boat, detention of crew See in context

@P.Smith No, I disagree. The Russians have not signed the SF treaty you named, because in their view at that time “that the draft treaty, in violation of the Yalta agreement, did not recognize the Soviet Union's sovereignty over South Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands; and other objections. It was not until 19 October 1956, that Japan and the Soviet Union signed a Joint Declaration ending the war and reestablishing diplomatic relations.” (Wiki) You see, even if they had signed, there wouldn’t have been also no complete sovereignty over whole Sakhalin, as they interpret it even themselves. That means , we are still under that joint declaration , so that all questions are still open and therefore also still lead to such aggressive acts like attacking and capturing fishing boats, for example. But that’s still nothing compared with all those almost daily necessary air scrambles, because they come with their fighter jets and challenge the JSDF response capabilities. They ‘play’ in the Northern Territory the same bad game like the Chinese ‘play’ near the Senkakus.

Don’t worry too much. That technology is still so stupid and very obvious , therefore easy to realize and avoid or trick. Something to laugh about… For example, putting something in the virtual cart, but buying anywhere else. You get reminders and everyday new pictures of what you already have at home. That’s really crazy. The same for reading one news about a topic that usually doesn’t interest you. You’ll be bombed with news about that for half a year. Now the trick… Read or search for something that really pleases you, nature, nice women, race cars , cute pets, landscapes, art or such. Then the horror is over immediately and you are pampered with pleasures on every website you call. lol
