The 'old ways' die hard and this is how they die, one person at a time...

rarely get this in my home country, because teachers know that theyll likely get a visit from an angered father who can stand up for his kid. one thing with bullies they rarely pick on people when they know theyll likely get and equal if not exponential fight back.

I had a similar situation happen when I was in HS. but it was a senior student picking on a junior. about 2 days later the older brother came to the school asked to speak with the senior student. the student came they had a short 5 minute conversation, no shouting no physical violence. I couldn't hear exactly what was said, but I have a good idea. I remember vividly the rage in the older brothers eyes and the fear in the senior students. the older brother drove off with a death glare. When asked by the head teacher what was said, the senior student , not much.

The senior student never bullied another student again

Posted in: CDC mask guidance met with hostility by leading Republicans See in context

“Why do Democrats distrust the science?”

The nation is averaging nearly 62,000 new COVID-19 cases a day, and the vast majority of those hospitalized and dying haven’t been vaccinated. As of Sunday, 69% of American adults had received one vaccine dose, and 60% had been fully vaccinated, according to the CDC.

yet its red states with the highest infections rates and over 99% of people dying armt vaccinated.

Dems have much higher vaccination rates compare to republican's

Dems are continually saying get vaccinated and wear a mask.

Its republican's putting the politics over the science, and its their base that are doing the dying

99%+ survival rate for most people, COVID 19. Kono, NOT a doctor

wrong, 97~98% for unvaccinated people, 99.99% for people that are vaccinated

so even of your 99% is accurate. for a population like Japan that would be over 900000 dead Japanese with 70% of the population reaching herd immunity. got to love the science always makes the deniers look like fools

Pretty low considering the 100,000 undocumented people arriving for the Olympics, wandering outside their hotels maskless without a care in the world.

oh man NFI ever person coming into the country is being tested, how many Japanese are being tested.

thats right blame it on the group with the highest level of covid scrutiny, when the fact is it just Japanese getting lax with their covid responsibilities

Posted in: The unavailability of information on vaccines is a common problem faced by all foreign residents of Japan with language barriers. To spread information, public administration services should work with communities of non-Japanese and their support groups, and they should also use social media platforms that are viewed by non-Japanese. See in context

Or foreign residents could learn Japanese. Naaaahhhhh!

many of those foreigners are here on temporary or short term visa, with very little chance of permanent residence or citizenship or even a path required to get those. should a foreigner invest in Japanese language when the country itself really has no interest to invest in long term residency for them? Naaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!

Posted in: Vietnamese woman gets suspended sentence for abandoning bodies of newborn twins See in context

Japan doesn't have rules of precedent, so each case is ruled as the judge sees fit, and does not require consistency in Japanese law.

and yet Japan claims to be a democracy with every both equal under the law, thats clearly not the case when similar offences can be ruled very differently depending on the judge.

Posted in: Vaccinations rise in some U.S. states with soaring infections See in context

It is not false that vaccinated people get covid

true vaccinated people can still catch covid, but theyre far less likely to be contagious and suffer long term health effects. many hospitals and counties in the US are currently reporting that the over 99% of people currently dying from covid are unvaccinated. The facts back by medical evidence is the vaccines is very effective in reducing infection transmissions and death. The risk of dying from the vaccines is so low its negligible. 400million vaccines administered and deaths associated with it cant even be verified because the numbers are so small. meanwhile 4 million dead of covid so far, and India may even match this at the rate of infections

This is BS and help achieve nothing but hysteria. Provide data, how many are they, how many of them have comorbidities, provide a comparison with previous months. This has been extremely annoying during all of this, people just throwing around statements without any professional quality in reporting.

theres one stat that is verified and correct over 99.2 % of covid deaths in the US are unvaccinated

But my guess is they will we right and a lot of people will die needlessly while the rest of us carry on.

unfortunately for one group of people, unvaccinated, theyll be doing most of the dying

get this Pfizer never joined Operation warp speed they never accepted any money from the US government, they used all their own funding, but they knew that bringing a effective vaccine to market quickly would be a huge financial boost to them as governments around the world would buy it , which is what is happening

Posted in: COVID-19 cases rising again in U.S., doubling over three weeks See in context

Interesting, they’re talking about increases infection rates, but silent on and no information on deaths which would lead one to believe that death rate is now less of a risk than previously thought, so that’s good news.

news is that over 99.2% of people dying by covid now are unvaccinated, the states with the highest unvaccinated people and highest infection rates for the last 2 months, guess which party they voted for.

I'd rather take the covid-free elevator!

the irony is many of the Olympic athletes and others have already been vaccinated and all have been tested as they arrive in Japan,so the foreigner elevator is most likely the least contagious of the two.

So if I had a choice itd be the gaijin elevator / covid free elevator

How many school PTA meetings did you have to attend, what PTA committee were you on? How many days did you not go to work to stay home with or bring you sick child to the hospital? Did you even go to a single parent teacher meeting?

yes and how much of the family income was generated by the father compared to the mother, just because a father is the money earner and the mother is normally the home maker doesnt diminish the fact that the father has just as much rights to see his children as the mother, in Japan the custody is nearly always awarded to the mother. that doesn't give her the right to refuse the father visitation rights, unless domestic violence is concerned, with some mothers just using that excuse without evidence to shut the father out

The publicity the lawsuit will give Trump is **EXACTLY what he wants. A repeat of the 2016 campaign. I don’t wish him success, but he’s got political savvy.**

oh like the 60+ lawsuits he lost over election fraud, his releasing his taxes which he lost,

Trump has lost nearly 90% of every case that has been sent to the SCOTUS, with a majority of conservatives on the bench. political savvy doesnt equal constitutional savvy

I definitely agree. It’s about time and long overdo.

and its going to fail miserably,

“The First Amendment applies to government censorship or speech regulation. It does not stop private sector corporations from regulating content on their platforms,” he said by email. "In fact, Facebook and Twitter themselves have a First Amendment free speech right to determine what speech their platforms project and amplify

Thanks to the Democrats.

wrong primarily republicans that fought decades ago that private companies cant be forced to air peoples free speech as its their own property, they can choose who can and cant use it.

Goodluck getting Ghosn out of Lebanon

Posted in: Mass vaccination site to fill vacant slots with police, other officials See in context

Now I’m told that if I don’t get vaccine, I could die. Of what?

some people just dont get it,

chances of dying from the vaccine is almost 0 a few dozen people in over 100million vaccinated.

your chances of dying from covid19 if infected is many 1000s of times higher compared to being vaccinated.

so you can take your chance and hope you dont get infected or you can take the far safer option and get vaccinated

Posted in: Mass vaccination site to fill vacant slots with police, other officials See in context

I am a doctor who do not recommend those shots.

covid vaccines have been shown to be over 90% effective, the chances of dying from the vaccine is very very small almost non existant compared to the 100million people already vaccinated.

the statistic show that unvaccinated people are far more likely to die of covid and if infected and recover their lifelong effects from the virus may be substantially worse than those that are vaccinated .

Once again the science and facts proves the deniers wrong again

The Japanese govt should prioritize Tokyo residents if they want to hold the Olympics. 

why you making it sound like covid only infects Tokyoites, why should the rest of japan have to wait after Tokyo, the rest of Japan isnt benefitting from the Olympics most dont want the Olympics so why should they be pushed to the back of the line
