Posted in: Grassroots revolution: the road to legal cannabis See in context

its funny that people are still referring to cannabis as being harmful. I have never heard of anyone overdosing or dying from cannabis. While we have a suspected 5 dead because of a supplement easily obtainable in Japan.

So they have changed the constitution without changing the constitution. It’s more like the government are trying to suppress anybody that asks it to many questions.

Posted in: The controversial plan to release Fukushima plant's wastewater See in context

Dumping of nuclear waste and heavy metals into the oceans has been going on for many years. Dumping this water is probably much less harmful to the planets ecology than all the waste plastic being used and dumped.

Posted in: Turkey investigates building contractors as earthquake deaths pass 33,000 See in context

We know that Japan is expecting a big quake. We are told that buildings in Tokyo are mainly earthquake proof after ‘95. We really have to wonder exactly how safe we are from n Tokyo.

So, Sony have been spending money without understanding what and why they are doing it?

I am sure your shareholders are happy!

Posted in: Japan's ruling parties agree on tax hikes for more defense spending See in context

Tax the business and the business will react. Likely, they won’t increase salaries. Spending goes down and the government loses tax in other areas.

The government are on a hiding to nothing on this fiscal roundabout.

It will get harder for the general workers. Bunker down everyone!

Posted in: Kishida eyes U.S. trip for talks with Biden in January See in context

Another waste of Japanese resources. He isn’t a negotiator with skill, he doesn’t have skill and would be better off staying in Japan.

Posted in: Alzheimer's drug shows promise in early results of study See in context

This is more about shareholders in the company. These announcements will push the share price, benefiting the owners of shares. I wonder if they have really found anything that contributes to this problem.

I’m amazed this has been reported.

Posted in: Japan's economy grows 2.2% in 2Q on revived consumer spending See in context

Someone is bending the figure’s to fix a rhetoric that Japan is ok. This is also called burying one head in the sand.

If you see busy restaurants, it’s because many others have already closed.

Posted in: Nearly 370 mil disposable cups used by coffee chains in Japan in 2020 See in context

I think they should be focusing on all the plastic generated, not the paper cups. I am sure biodegradable paper cups could be used. But the plastic is far more of a problem.

How about, instead of subsidising rice field owners not to grow rice and subsidise them to grow wheat.

Posted in: Japanese airline Zipair ditches 'Z' logo to avoid pro-Russia misunderstanding See in context

Whoever briefed the marketing team, and, of course the marketing team/ director should lose their jobs. This alone would be reason enough not to invest in Zipair.

Posted in: Travel firms thrown into confusion over rules as Japan reopens to foreign tourists See in context

They probably could organise a ‘piss up in a brewerey’.

How embarrassing for Japan to be represented by a group of bumbling idiots.

Just open the borders and let the tourists bring their money with them.

The people that covered it up, just didn’t think it through. Now covering up a picture of Putin, that I would understand.

Investors need transparency. Unfortunately I doubt these companies want others to know what is going on behind there closed doors. When foreign companies come along to buy out the remnants it will be all too late.

Milk and other dairy products are the top source of saturated fat in the American diet, contributing to heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer's disease. Studies have also linked dairy to an increased risk of breast, ovarian, and prostate cancers.
