*Don’t blame nature being crazy. This happens every year! This is human neglect. Why are nursing homes near landslide locations? This has happened before. Kyushu, Shikoku, southern Wakayama, especially - they KNOW they are in danger of heavy floods at this time of year ""*

Hmmm. A disturbing thought just crossed my mind; what if this was done on purpose (by the authorities)? To lessen the burden of looking after an increasingly elderly population, why not let nature get rid of them? I wouldn't be surprised if some people in the government think this way.

Maybe those out-of-work or Teleworking Japanese programmers can come up with something better. That way, we won't have to rely on another one of the communist china government's spy machines?

As an ex-pat, who does not speak Japanese, will these robots be programmed to understand English and/or other languages?

Maybe when you are in another person's country, YOU could make the effort to learn their language instead of expected THEM to do things to suit you?

>    Please explain how you can control earthquakes & tsunamis. Especially an unprecedented tsunami.

> Well maybe TEPCO not building on a major fault line with a frequent history of major tsunamis, right by the sea, just to save money???

That's like telling the people of San Fransisco and most of California to move away because their homes are built on well known earthquake fault lines. Have you seen the movie San Andreas? 

Granted TEPCO could have done more. But that doesn't detract from the fact that most countries would rather trust German, Japanese or French engineering than china-nese ones. Especially when it comes to infrastructure that deals with human lives. There is a famous incident in china where a HS train crashed and instead of investigating, the authorities BURIED entire train compartments....as if to hide the fact a whole train had derailed. Search for the pics online.

Japan has to abandon trouble making role in East Asia. Join China to make great east Asia co-prosperity sphere for all east Asians

I don't think anyone wants to join china. They don't want their mothers, sisters, wives to be forced sterilized.

Let's all sit back and watch how the UN & the WHO ......whose member states are in the pockets of the CCP......all sit back and do nothing.

Nothing concrete anyway.

People all over the world start riots because of skin color...but not when women are forced to be sterilized against their will.

Posted in: Huawei controversy opens field for 5G challengers See in context

NEC does have some advantages, including a partnership in Japan with mobile operator Rakuten. The firms have already cooperated on a 4G network and are now jointly developing a 5G system.

The Japanese firm is also a leader on undersea cables, fibre optic networks and -- thanks to its affiliate Netcracker -- logistics management software.

First, beef up your cyber-security. So that the CCP's cyber idiots will stop stealing your info.

Posted in: Japan puzzled by Indonesia's policy shift over high-speed rail plan See in context

..referring to Jakarta's new proposal to integrate the China-led project with a medium-speed railway plan involving Japanese assistance..

..and bringing in a consortium of Japanese investors to join the Indonesia-China project..

Well, how else are the china-nese going to steal Japanese technology & tech know-how? By pretending to collaberate and then slowly steal all the Japanese info, of course!

There is ample evidence and outcry from Indonesian villagers and townsfolk about their land being cleared for the railway but then nothing has been done for years. All those trees cut down and forests decimated....but neither the china-nese nor the Indonesians doing anything after that.

Had this been a Japanese ONLY project, the railway would have been finished ages ago.

Posted in: Online disruption of Trump rally highlights K-pop's political muscle See in context

Just in the past month, fans of the globally dominant pop genre -- which was born approximately 25 years ago in South Korea -- co-opted the hashtag #WhiteLivesMatter by flooding it with K-pop related imagery to drown out racist tweets.

"K-pop has a culture of being responsible," said CedarBough Saeji, an academic expert of the genre based out of Indiana University. "K-pop fans in general are outward-looking, socially conscious people and K-pop in the United States is very heavily supported by people of color, by people who identify as being LGBTQ.

Oh, the irony!

TikTok created filter bubbles based on your race.

The app’s algorithm uses race, age and gender to sort users,and created a biased feedback loop. Look it up.

In my experience, JAL staff are some of the most dedicated and customer-oriented people in the world. I truly enjoyed their service and I feel they deserve the extended allowance.

I cannot imagine the pandemonium they ( esp the Customer Service Staff) have had to endure during the Wuhan-China virus outbreak and flights were being cancelled left, right & center.

Not to mention another pandemonium due to the sudden influx of passengers once travel restrictions were lifted.

They should have either kept this quiet or should increase their cyber-security. Now a certain communist dictatorship will send out its cyber lapdogs to try and hack this supercomputer or to steal info. What's new?

is the latest effort by Chinese game developers to expand beyond their domestic market

I wonder what sort of malware / SPYWARE is included in their new "game". So many china tech companies infiltrating the US just before the US Elections. Recently Twitter hired a china woman ( a former Google AI expert) into its Board, then TikTok lookalike Zynn brings Chinese video app into the US, and now this.

Posted in: TikTok lookalike Zynn brings Chinese video app rivalry to US See in context

**Zynn has sought to downplay its Chinese origins, with its website offering little information about its background and giving an address in Palo Alto, California. **

Yes, typical. They are good at hiding the truth.

"Zynn is a product only for the US, and we launched Zynn for the U.S.," he told AFP.

Because it's election year. You need something to influence the US voters and control their social media, right?

Zhang said Zynn plans to continue paying users in the long term, but will shift towards rewarding "content creators" in the future, while generating revenue through advertising

The typical china-nese bait & switch tactic.

Great. One more CCP spy machine.

Zynn,* **which is not available in China**, rewards users in the U.S. and Canada*** with cash when they invite friends to download the app..

There you go. Specifically targeting the US & Canada. Not available in china but freely available in US & Canada. And just before the US elections too. The more to influence people with.

The fact that they are PAYING people to use their spy machine...in the election year...just goes to show how desperate their propaganda machine is.

Posted in: Japanese firm investigated for allegedly bribing Vietnam officials See in context

So you're blaming China (which came out of nowhere) for these corrupt Japanese?

You don't think it was the chinese who instigated the vietnamese to conduct this "investigation"? You don't think the chinese factories in vietnam view the Japanese companies as competition? You think the chinese are not bribing the vietnamese officials?

No doubt under the insistence of china. After all, they are the only ones who can bribe Vietnamese officials, right?

Posted in: Japan's low unemployment rate conceals deeper labor market pain See in context

The workers in Japan facing the brunt of those cuts are often workers without job security - part-timers, contract workers and temporary workers

Gather all these people, employ them in factories that make PPE, N95 masks, testing equipment, etc. Sell them to overseas as well as locals. People would rather buy Made In Japan medical equipment.

Act NOW ! Get rid of the usual Japanese bureaucracy in times like these. Start putting up factories ( ie more jobs for construction workers and construction companies), employ transport companies to ferry these factory workers ( ie more jobs for out-of-work tourist bus drivers), and start getting to work.

Strike while the iron is HOT!!

The world needs more medical equipment, face masks, etc. Japan can step up and at the same time provide jobs for its own people.

Posted in: TikTok owner ByteDance moves to shift power out of China See in context

I question the timing: First Twitter recently employs a PRC woman for its board member ( Fei-Fei Li), a former Google AI "expert". And now TikTok wants to "move to the US".

All these just before the US elections.

You wonder why Twitter --after so many years---only NOW wants to "fact-check" Trump?

I see that the corrupted CCP's propaganda machine has now moved closer to the US.

Time to invest in SONY's Noise Cancelling headphones. Pricey but worth every cent.

Actually, all these lockdowns with folks being told to stay at home...is a golden opportunity for SONY and other Japanese audio companies. Rather than neighbors killing each other, SONY would make a killing if they marketed their noise cancelling headphones now. They could sweeten the deal with free delivery.

Oi, SONY ! You listening?

Wait, was that a pun? Listening? Tee Hee!

Posted in: Japanese ryokan, eateries use ingenuity in overcoming virus hardships See in context

Actually they should be targeting hikikomori instead. This is their chance to come out of their homes without fearing of coming into contact with crowds.

Japanese ryokan and eateries should make arrangements to pick up these people at night when there will minimal people wandering around.

Partition off certain areas at ryokans to practice social distancing so that each hikikomori will have their own private space. Offer one-to-one tours to off-the-beaten-track areas ( ie minimal crowds).

Who knows, after their stay, these hikikomori might just start opening up more to society.
