I'm lazy and busy to seach for all who carried the flags in past as everybody else. But I'm pretty sure your statement is wrong.

Why to bother his 80yo mother! She didn't drive. This is sick! He is 60 he should know better. Wanna hear his mommy apologizing for his old behind? Nope!

Deepest condolences to families who lost their children. Heartbreaking.

yes, and?

Did she make Osaka withdraw? No?

Then okay, she was lucky and she made best of the circumstances. As Czech myself I am proud of her.

And btw there was no guarantee that Osaka would win anyway. She said herself that clay doesn't work for her yet...

what you can do is do not participate. My kid annual perfomance. I was told that he refused to practice (dance) but yet they wanted him to be on stage. For what Idk but I said no way and I didn't go. If he would practice and not be perfect it's fine but if they weren't able to make him practice then no stage time needed...he had no graduation ceremony as well. It's up to you what you prioritize. Yes, kids need to learn how to cope with activities they don't like but what's the point having graduation like you graduate from university. Yes koko ha nihon. but yes koko ha gaijin. And yes don't participate on PTA cos I'm busy ✌️

yes, minor was also the victim. This blows my mind. So if you are dead there is no need for privacy. If not for person who passed away then definitely for the family left behind.

Posted in: Gov't advisers warn Japan's birth rate falling at more rapid pace this year See in context

Ashley Shiba,

I feel you sister but this has nothing to do with low birthrate.

Being single mom may be challenging especially when kid enter shogakou, lots of PTA stuff etc.

But it's easier here to work with small kids here. In my country maternity leave is 3-4years. Place your kid in Nursery school? Almost impossible, leave husband? Till you have Nursery school, no way.

In case DV? bloody hell.

I am single mom in Japan. Not easy. My salary was that time: 160 000-180 000 max and even with that I passed for juutaku loan and have my own house. Can I do the same in my country (in EU) ?nah...

Now having two kids, single (poor choices) good job the only thing is bugging me is how the elementary school is operating (keeping same ways like from the time when every women was house wife)

It's hard, but it's expected to be.

You just ganbare and make the best for your family.

what about starting educating our kids: be nice to EVERYONE. EVERYONE is different and it OK.

Once everyone would live by these problem solved. Most of the people can't really relate to this and all you can do is teach your family how the things should be done.

One "equality mask" won't save the day if you are living in country where you can't tell even parents.

Posted in: Popularity of Harry and Meghan plummets in UK after Oprah interview, poll says See in context

I don't know first they said something about privacy and then going to see Oprah.

Said that they wanted normal life for Archie so no tittle to him, now omg he got no tittle because he may be darker.

talked to the plebs how to act more eco-friendly when using private jets.


even 2nd and 3rd child of William and Kate weren't supposed to have tittle. The Queen made exception for them. So Harry's kids are out of question and they said they don't want one.

When biracial kid is about to be born it's always about: will he looks more like mom or dad? My personal experience. Will European genes beat the Caribbean's...we talked about it, we joked about it. It's normal. BUT I guess depends on context. Can't help it but feeling this goes perfectly fine with BLM agenda.

I wonder if without these claims someone would even bother to watch them...you know everyone is here for the drama...

Funny thing the day I went on maternity leave was the last day for my son at his hoikuen. Since December I did take care of him and since January I take care of him and his baby brother by myself. Till April. Then my older son goes to elementary school. Don't see anything wrong with that. Did the same during "stay home". Kept him home, safe for almost 3months. No problem at all. Unless you make kids to put them at hoikuen instead of raising them as parents do. Woman on maternity leave should keep her child at home. My personal opinion. (Raising kids as a single parent )

Kobe White Bar Owner

Same for hoikuen these senior care homes have waiting list. Most people can't get there. They have day service for seniors so when family members are at work they are picked up by car and taken to these day services. Weekends, nights family has to care. Or there is caregiver visiting senior at home. That's all. Most seniors don't make it into senior care homes even they would like to go there.

your problem is assuming what I think they are going to search for when text says clearly:

WHO going to search for orgins...


one year later

in China

do you really think they will find something relevant?

With China narrative virus orgins are from India or even Czechia?

If the article would say WHO is going to search for Pokemons it would sound realistic.

Posted in: WHO team arrives in Wuhan to search for pandemic origins See in context


I don't see the point why WHO should go there...to check what exactly?

If it's not fault of Wuhan laboratory, then what's the point? To check the fact, that unfortunately chinese people are eating everything what wasn't quick enough to escape. Well, as long poverty is playing key role nothing can't be changed.

So please tell me. What exactly WHO can check after one year since outbreak?

yes, sure

till one of them will be the reason why your precious family member is not alive because of those old folks.

Let's be honest here. some 78 are capable and some are not. Same goes for 20's, 30's etc. but I think the rules should be changed for old folks up 65. With driving tests and medical checks every 6months.

truly healthy person.

Here goes the problem: no one is really truly healthy. Someone has allergies, asthma, high K levels. Unless you go under detail medical check and I mean detailed when you check everything. No one can be sure that there is nothing to be worry about. Pregnant woman died after giving birth just one example. Is pregnancy being risk factor? May be...problem is no one can tell.

Posted in: Tokyo reports record high 949 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 3,881 See in context

meanwhile Sagamihara City is providing free tests for corona. They will cover cost 20 000yen. All pregnant ladies 32weeks up are to submit to the test.

We got warning that tests may get false positive. If you test positive you can't give birth in that particular hospital and after birth you can't have your baby with you (separate rooms) I am just waiting for info if I am supposed to walk to that particular hospital in case I test positive and taxi or bus and train won't be the option...

The question is get tested or not. I feel healthy with no health problem so my desire to get tested isn't high. But understand the fact that I can possible have it...Hamlet coming: get the test or refuse the test?

I did ask nurse if other expecting mothers are taking the tests but nurse wasn't so eager to answer that particular question.
