This country is hard to understand a friend of mine who is a foreigner who had covid for a long time applied for the temporary loan of 300,000 yen due to lack of funds, and was denied twice even though they lost work from covid this country does not care at all about people, the NGO told him they couldn't understand why he'd been denied after accompanying him to the city hall to help him apply

Wow just read on the institute of the study of war that Ukrainian troops are expected to push Russia back to the border near kharkiv city within days allowing fire control along the road to izyum.

This would secure another 60 km or so of the eastern border incredible stuff Ukraine.

This is also a population war as Russia has currently taken over 120,000 Ukrainian children to Russia and is putting them up for adoption to Russian coupleshttps://interfax.com.ua/news/general/822381.html

Meanwhile in Ukraine 120, 000 children have been separated from their parents, taken to Russia and are up for adoption for Russian families almost certainly they will never meet their families again and will probably be brainwashed into thinking they are dead. This has been confirmed by various officials from the Ukrainian government just go on Twitter and check for yourself. We can see there is a clear population war happening here Russia is taking a natural resource of a country to replace those it has lost and in war, alcoholism, drugs and skills.

Posted in: Ukraine sees openings as Russia fixed on besieged Mariupol See in context

I suggest we wait and see what effect 1.3 billion dollars of American aid brings to the table in terms of long-range strike capabilities on Russian ships artillery and command and control. And remember people even if they capture Mariupol it's not like it can't be recaptured again later just like hostomel. Also the psychological toll is starting to tell on the average Russian military family who have received a phone call from Ukrainian Army members telling them about picking the cell phone of their dead husband. They speak to people who speak to people it all starts to snowball.

Posted in: Russians leaving Chernobyl as fighting rages elsewhere See in context

In a widely reported story on Twitter the soldiers went into a lab and took some equipment and this was a lab that contained highly radioactive materials. If we look at the numer supports of Russians plundering money wedding rings all sorts it is not hard to imagine that the pull of getting their hands on some highly expensive technical equipment might have been too much to resist. Sounds like something you'd hear in a movie about a curse

What amazes me about the abandonment of the Russian equipment is that the ukrainians can just drive off with them, repurpose them if able and use them against the Russians even farmers are taking the opportunity to pick up abandoned equipment.

The beaches themselves are not the main cause for concern it is the shared public facilities like toilets where spread is more likely. Flushing the toilet can aerosolize the virus ready for the next person who comes in as it is present in feces.

I have heard 0 sirens the last 3 days, down from almost non stop, its really creepy, like they just stopped accepting new patients in my area. (rural tokyo) The virus dosent stop, but clinics are certainly not on their top game over this period (or so it seems) anyone have any thoughts on this lack of sirens?

Yeah, if you say so, but to me, it's pretty clear. No wrestling for you, don't even go near anyone who isn't providing you healthcare in a hazmat suit in a specialist ward.

A billion may die indirectly or directly of this, but more likely hundreds of millions, most directly i fear.

I fear, and hate this sickness, but i understand that these things do happen from time to time. I don't want to risk it, so we all wear a mask all the time while out near others. If i survive without locking down thats great, because we do need to eat, but im just glad we know ways to flatten the curve and sometimes use them in some places, so if i can get food in lockdown i don't mind.

Isn't Japan already ageing, causing a burden on the health care and pensions? I don't think politicians are too worried if that burden were to ease, or the sick die off.

Posted in: 'Star Wars' TV series 'Mandalorian' confirmed for season two See in context

the sequels are unofficially not canon, due to Georges vision of chewie dying to save one of Hans and Leias three children, Luke taking out a star destroyer with an x wing, falling in love with Mara Jade, and generally continuing the story of the characters we love... George style but through lots of writers. The mandalorian flat out contradicts the sequals many times, thus hinting at a spider man esque style reboot already where fans are asked to "forget " the sins of previous movies.

Posted in: Strong first night for 'Star Wars' falls short of previous 2 See in context

Luke should have been destroying Star destroyers using his force piloting skills in an x-wing, the suncrusher should have made an appearance, Mara Jade and luke battling would have shown an equality in skill and respect that turns to love. Han and Leia should have had a happy marriage with 3 children and not been on the run so much, inroducing new talent, all in all, if they wanted to bring something original to the screen, they should have brought the original ideas in the books to life.

Just to Clarify that's "truest direction after Return of the Jedi"

Posted in: At 40, ‘Star Wars' and its relationship with Japan only deepens See in context

The books will always be the truest direction after Jedi for me. Wedge leading Rogue squadron in the attack on Coruscant, Lando investigating the Dreadnoughts, Luke's Yavin 4 Jedi academy, Grand Admiral Thrawn and his Nogri assassin bodyguards.

Those are awesome storylines, deep, give the characters the respect, power and trials they deserve, especially Mara Jade's conflict when she battles Luke.

I don't care about anything other than these books, because for me, they are the true history of the Star Wars Universe.
