No country for your men.

Old people sit at the top, make decision, while the young do the customer service.

Even as far back as Alexander the Great saw the merits of meritocracy, but Japan still cannot.

A woman in 60ies, still at large after an assault on a public transport...This is a joke.

Goes to show how useless surveillance is at stations and on trains. And people need to try helping each other, be more observing. We are not robots, ffs

The public in Japan does not want to get involved.

Posted in: U.S. sport on alert as COVID cases surge in NFL, NBA, NHL See in context

In English Premier League, 2 matches were postponed. Even in Formula 1's last race, one racer was outlined because he tested positive for Covid-19. Wouldnt be surprised if more get ill during end-of-season afterparties. But British need not worry. They dont feel like partying. The only thing "still rising" this year is the covid cases, haha

Posted in: Kishida taking no chances as Japan closes border over Omicron See in context

Looks like new variants/mutations are likely to happen in less developed countries or the ones with less abundancy of vaccines. I think countries should work together to supply vaccines to as many people as poosible across the globe, instead of playing a sprint where they keep introducing 3rd shot, 4th shot etc. for their own citizens. Pointing fingers and being greedy will only worsen the situation.

Many elevators automatically stopped, including those at Tokyo's metropolitan government building, temporarily trapping some people.

At 10:41pm?

Is it normal for them to be at office at that hour? Or do they work 24/7?

Posted in: Once embracing, Turkey turns on migrants See in context

well it's ironic considering Turks are basically the Turkmans, Uzbeks, Afghans settled in Anatolya. Would be nice if they were more welcoming of their relatives.

But, the fact that they are illegals in Turkey is also a big factor. Difficult times for Afghan brethren.

Why do we even have volunteers in such mega events? These events generate billions in revenue probably. Paying a daily wages for these "volunteers" should be a grain in a ricefield for the economics of the Games.

2024 - Paris

2028 - Los Angeles

Demand for hosting the Olympics has decreased. Paris and LA were the only cities for the upcoming 2 Games. The Olympics has lost its reputation because of absurd demands put on host cities and the waste of money, space, infrastructure in the aftermath of most of the instances.

And especially after this year's backlash from people in Japan, the Olympics will no longer be a beacon of hope. It's just another means of making money for greedy politicians.

Liberal Democratic Party is considering drawing up another large-scale supplementary budget to finance fresh economic stimulus, apparently looking to win public support ahead of a general election that must be held by November.

There will probably be a lot more profit from the Stupid Games. We definitely want another stimulus package. No matter which stupid party is in charge. We've been under depessing, never-ending SOE for last 3 months, ffs.
