Posted in: Japan reports 79,354 new coronavirus cases See in context

Yesterday, I went through Narita customs what a joke them and their QR code and making you stop and for what?????

I thought the 3 vaccines was to do away with all this, but it does not seem to make a dang difference.

Getting back to this story, the number of people in the hospital in Tokyo also does not make a difference either because many hospitals turn away sick COVID patients because they do not either have the beds, staff, and or both.

The death rate seems high lately, and again the stats are not all there what are the age ranges of these people passing.

The bullying that goes on schools in Japan, and of course I cannot know if this is the situation but many times it is the case and or domestic abuse at home and the only way out in the mind of a young person is taking their own life.

Another case, this young girl could be living in an orphanage and life there can be even more traumatic where these children are released at the age of 18 with a brown paper bag and 20 thousand yen and a good luck to you from my understanding.

My heart breaks over the loss of this young person who should not be judged because clearly, she was suffering quite deeply for her to take this drastic action and ending her life.

I put out on this site several times that you cannot put any stock to the number of people who are in the hospital in Tokyo. They turn people away all the time this is not new.

Posted in: Gov't considers lifting anti-COVID recommendation to wear masks indoors See in context

Here is my question to those many who challenge the wearing of masks and them not being effective.

What is the reason over how many years nurses and doctors all over the world wear masks when they are in the operating room and or in a sick patients' room wear one? I am sure it is not for decorative reasons and so there has to be a logical reason for this tool that has been used worldwide.

For myself, I will continue on my road, outside I will not wear a mask but when inside a shopping center and or with people I don't know I will be wearing a mask.

No, doctors do not want you to be in the birthing room. Let me tell you this is a very good change, because it will keep doctors and nurses both on their toes.

Posted in: Prosecutors indict Yamagami for murder of Abe See in context

Lawyers really have no power over the police and or for their clients not even in the Court system. The only power over the police and the justice system if there is any would be the mass media and that is why they delayed this man's trial. The police and the government were hoping to for this story to die down, but I bet once this goes to Court the media will go crazy and lots more is going to come out about many present acting politicians and let's see how many will resign.

Posted in: Uniqlo operator to raise annual salaries in Japan by up to 40% See in context

They are making more than many full-time ESL teachers in this country. That is why I will not work full-time for no one school and love my part-time positions which pay more than a contract teacher in this country.

Well, unless the laws have changed, I knew a Japanese woman who married her second cousin and it appeared at that time legal.

Posted in: Prince Harry says UK royals got into bed with tabloid press 'devil' See in context

Okay, here is my version who talks about a frost-bitten penis when they are standing at their brother's wedding and or revealing that not only him, but his brother's too has a nipped penis. If Harry wants to reveal publicly about his body parts that is his business, but he has no right to reveal information about his brother's. He also talks about being shagged in the bushes and smacked on his rump afterwards and told to run along. Lastly, he talks about how many Taliban he took down, he needs protection from himself he has now put a warrant out on his head guaranteed. The Royal family is not his enemy, Harry is his own worst enemy and looking more like he needs to hire himself a new and more reliable therapist.

Posted in: McCarthy elected House speaker in vote 15 after chaotic week See in context

Americans vote Republican and this is what they get. Not saying Biden is any prize, however when you get Democrat you don't get all the chaos that Republicans bring to the table and or phonies like NYC Santos. Republicans won't even stand up and tell this complete proven liar to stand down, and now had this been an elected democrat with the same situation the Republicans would have been screaming at the top of their lungs to have the individual resign. The old saying what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

Posted in: Families in Tokyo to get ¥5,000 per child to address falling birthrate See in context

What they need to do is get rid of the cram schools, make high schools free for all students who wish to enter, and parents will have more than 5,000 yen in their pockets.

When a father abandons his family leaving a mother financially holding the house down solo there needs to be laws in place like N. America where liberties like passports are removed.

Also, the orphanages where there are a number of unwanted children there is a desperate need to find them homes before creating more children let's take care of the ones who need loved on.

It would be good if the number of deaths were broken down by age. Also, it would be good to know how many are hospitalized across Japan.

My heart goes out to both Ukranian people and Russian people who don't want to be in this war. Putin and his cronies are paying a heavy penalty for starting this unprovoked attack and the question what the end will bring for them all.

Posted in: 60-year-old man arrested for stealing ¥1,000 from shrine donation box See in context

The money are donations to pray for the dead and how about to help those are alive and in need. This man clearly was an individual in need and took only a thousand yen probably to buy food and clearly not to prosper this story is sad indeed.

Posted in: Canada bans most foreigners from buying homes See in context

I have been looking at buying a place in Alberta and I have noticed the homes slightly dropping and also a lot of bank owned properties. But something I read today it is illegal for a bank to list and or sell a repo below list value. So, it appears buying repo for me is not going to be the way I will go should I return back.

Posted in: Japan reports 76,264 new coronavirus cases See in context

Wait until tomorrow, unfortunately I believe the numbers are going to skyrocket. Today, when crossing the cross walk there were just crowds of people heading for the local mall up the street from my home. For me, I am just going to the supermarket and home, only.

With those crowds just crazy. Last night went to a friend's house and we ate sushi and today staying home and staying safe. You can go to a temple any day of the week and why do people need to crowd into places like this.

Posted in: Prosecutors to indict Abe shooter after psychiatric evaluation See in context

It will be interesting to see if he would be hanged because it will bring more focus on the government and all the old cronies that run it and they absolutely they don't want that.

Sadly, the corruption in the country is much higher than other countries because of the "shoganai" "it cannot be helped" attitude. That is until someone like this guy who snaps and does something drastic to get the attention and his form of justice at the cost of a life.

Posted in: China health commission stops publishing daily COVID figures See in context

According to early reports they are burning bodies at max and even with that they got bodies piled up waiting. The whole reason we have this mess is because the Chinese Government refused to acknowledge they released something from their secret labs and now they are going back into this mode. I am sure all the top Chinese officials are all locked up now along with their families and will not even step out their doors. Madness, no other words.

Posted in: Inmate in his 60s dies after being found unconscious in Kyoto prison cell See in context

I heard the prisons here are brutally cold and that many of the prisoners are elderly. Why? Many of them get themselves locked up intentionally to have free room and board. Life in Japan for the elderly is very trying if they don't have a pension.

Posted in: World Bank slashes China growth forecasts on Covid woes, property crisis See in context

I have sympathy for the Chinese people, however not for the government because their own medical expert when the COVID first appeared tried to warn everyone not only within China but beyond. Sadly, this brave soul got locked up and, in the end, lost his life to COVID and we lost so many lives around the world and freedom due to ignoring this man.

Had the Chinese government taken this brave doctor seriously from the start and locked down and had the rest of the world done the same too the COVID might have been able to have been contained and snuffed out.

Would of, could of and should have.

Posted in: China says tracking COVID cases now 'impossible' as infections soar See in context

China should have had this policy in place when they were first informed by the Chinese doctor who tried to warn China and many other countries about the COVID but everyone ignored until it was too late. I don't believe COVID will ever be locked up and if it is not for many, many years down the road. Really, the life we once knew is gone and all we can do is appreciate the freedoms we did have.

Posted in: Diabetic man dies in police custody after not eating for 3 days or being given medication See in context

A man was pulled over in front of my building, yesterday. He was driving a small cheap vehicle; he has a female in the passenger seat looked like a wife or girlfriend and there were 4 police cars around him, and they were so aggressive towards this small in stature guy. I did not stay around to see what happen, but my heart was sad for the guy in the car because having 8 or 9 police is overkill.

Back to this guy, to be chained up for 140 hours with no clothes in my guess a cold jail cell is cruel and not shocking.

Posted in: Japanese gov't wants to give people an extra ¥80,000 to have babies See in context

Here are some ideas GET RID OF the crazy entrance tests for public high schools and allow all kids to go to school free up to high school.

Second, if the father decides to run off and leaving the mother holding the bag for everything make sure there is a reasonable financial accountability where the mother doesn't have to track the money down to cover the cost of living for the children.

Free health care up to the age of 18 and that may get more women wanting to have a child and giving an increase in childbirth.

Posted in: 97-year-old man indicted for dangerous driving resulting in death, injury See in context

Everyone is so quick to judge this individual on age. How about if a bicycle, animal and or kid darted out in front of this person and someone else pointed out roads are narrow, and homes are built very near the streets in some places and the person swerved quickly to avoid a situation. I have zero desire to drive in this country for all the reasons I pointed out.
