Posted in: A coalition of human rights groups Asia, Europe, North America, Africa and Australia is urging the International Olympic Committee to rescind its decision to hold the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing over its human rights violations of more than a million Uighur Muslims. Do you support such a call? See in context
Olympic Games should be held in Greece. Period.

I would love to hear from those who successfully met the restrictions for those holding a zairyu card. The whole enchilada of getting a permission letter from their local Japanese embassy to securing a negative result on a PCR test within 72 hours of landing at the airport.

Those travelers must be accepted by entities or organizations capable of ensuring they have tested negative for the virus before entering Japan.
I don't understand this sentence. What entities or organizations? I hold a spouse visa. Does that mean I can enter or not?

Police believe Umeda killed the woman and then himself.
The order sounds right.

"If anyone has experience getting the PCR test in the States 72 hours before returning to Japan please post your experience. I have been unable to find such a provider in Florida yet."
I live on an outer island in Hawaii and the odds of me meeting the re-entry requirements are insurmountable. Mine is a spouse visa.

I tend to agree with euthanasia but funds should only be charged for actual expense, not profit.

I can understand when citizens support the GOP but I really don't get how anyone supports this bozo and his inner circle.

The reason is because he knows that the average person doesn't know this, and by obfuscating and sewing seeds of doubt and confusion, he might be able to deceive some low IQ supporters.
For a minute there, I thought you were talking about someone else ... .

We were all bullet-proof once upon a time. Problem is, Covid-19 is a real bullet that the young will not survive.

There are literally thousands of strays all over this country and instead of having them killed just because they are alive, is black eye on society here! Pick one off the street and give it a home!
Found your significant other in a homeless shelter, did ya? Some folks choose animals because they like the breed just like most folks choose mates because there's something appealing about them. Not all breeders are bad.

Dammit....what the hell??!?!? How many of these do we have to hear about?
You'll hear more. Consider that the Japanese population is half that of the US, yet lives in an area the size of California. There's no room for urban sprawl, thus high-rise apartments.

Three months for an eval is great. The kid deserves some therapy for the abuse he suffered under his father's hand.

Japan could have stood down but some chose to join the protest. Good on them.

There's another lesson here, too. Echoing complaints from last year ... teachers are overworked. They need help not more responsibility. Recent news reports that teachers are now escorting students to school as well as carrying desks and chairs in and out of school buildings. Also, staggered classes mean teachers are duplicating lessons. More teachers (or assistants) are needed.

Then run away. Call social services. Go to the ward office. Go to the police station.....any number of things could have been done.
A teenage boy doesn't think of the larger world as his protector. When I finally realized I could take away my father's power over me, I did so. Gratefully, there wasn't a knife in sight at the time.

This act is too common to be ignored. The crime seems to be committed by teens in most cases. Thrill seekers. Perhaps if it were treated with the same scrutiny that smoking is, we'd see far fewer incidents and casualties.

Just because the US is politicizing the WHO doesn't mean Japan or any other nations should jump in the water, too. Tiring, really.

Why is this so common? It's such a bizarre side of culture here.
Japan's culture is not so strange. I completely understand why parents take the lives of their children when they, themselves, are no longer able to provide for them. Imagine being one of those parents who believes their child will bounce around from one institution to another or fall under the protection of a relative who doesn't want them or can barely make ends meet in their own family. No, not selfish; not strange. Perhaps benevolent, all things considered.
And this isn't a new phenomenon. Unemployed samurai did the same thing.
