If the fuel is waste from private company operations, why are taxpayers footing this bill?

I’m sure McDonald’s Japan will still report solid profits for the heat. Confused about the currency rates being cited though - the yen is in a far better position now than 6 months ago. And how is the cheeseburger raise more than a Big Mac raise? Feels oddly like inflation being s convenient reason to just raise prices to be honest.

Pachinko places will be rubbing their hands with glee over this, I’m sure.
Wife and I won’t have any more kids so they are just wasting money giving it to people like me for our 2 kids. Should just spend all this money on day care facilities, family support etc instead to make having kids easier rather than just cheaper.

Rare for me to see one of these surveys and think “wow, I agree with 83% of respondents.”
People should be allowed to smoke if they want. But it stinks and passive smoking hurts others, so it should absolutely be done in isolation.

Majority of Japanese mortgages are variable rate. Bump interest rates and quickly find a lot of people will be in trouble.

So tax payers are bailing out people who were scammed? Unless this is a desperate attempt to make people lose anger at the church, what’s the point?

Saw on Twitter that the only bidder for the event (Maruyama) was the same one involved in the cherry blossom scandal.
Even in death, corruption prevails. No wonder this is more expensive than The Queen of England’s funeral!!!

Saw a chart which showed only 22% of Japanese companies operating in Russia have suspended operations, and none have pulled out. It’s all half-measures as usual.

Get ready for all hell to break lose, seems Okta has been hacked. Identity As A Service suddenly seems a huge mistake when pretty much all major organizations are their customers!!!

Why hackers are able to penetrate through all the sophisticated defense systems?
The vast majority of major incidents are caused by human-based attack vectors. Companies can spend every last dollar they have on security, but if someone clicks a link and enters details or downloads something without realizing they’re on the wrong page, it won’t protect them.

The link in the article shows just over 17,000 tests. That’s one way to ensure numbers can’t spiral out of control I guess haha!

Oh Japan, when will you learn that a bunch of if-conditionals isn’t AI? Banded around as a buzzword way too much.

"We, the IOC, will never abandon the TV and sponsorship deals, and with the cancellation, we would have lost a whole generation of revenues. So therefore, a cancellation for us was not really an option,"
Fixed that for you, you’re welcome.

Because the "correct" meaning of a word can only ever be the original one?
That isn't the point I am making. Just because Japanese isn't using it the same way that English is using, doesn't mean that Japanese usage is incorrect. It could have been adopted before English added a different nuance, or maybe didn't even come from English. Latin origin so likely that several other languages have the same word.

This made me interested enough to look at the etymology. Seems the original mansion definition just meant “place to live” which suggests the current English usage is the one which is incorrect.

Turkey fan here but I hope England finally win something, they have some really nice players in the team right now and have not conceded any goals yet which has surprised me because Pickford isn't very reliable usually haha
I think Italy will be the other finalist, and hopefully will be a good game!

Don’t worry, the government can give Dentsu some money to hold meetings and write a report, then all women will get pregnant and glorious Japan will become glorious-er.
Right? That’s all that’s needed, isn’t it? We don’t actually need to do anything, do we?

Not just Japanese companies, my employer is American and they’ve put a global lock on any salary increases this year without high level approval for special cases.

That is far from the truth
I am a blue team consultant and have worked with companies all over the world on this. There are good and bad examples everywhere, Japan isn't any better or worse than others.
Especially when you factor in that you can work up to the head of the government cyber security division without knowing how to use a smartphone or computer.
This doesn't impact the effectiveness of those doing the actual work. Though I agree it is a bizarre choice.

Finally realized their cyber security is worthless
Japan actually has a pretty solid cyber security setup - it was massively strengthened a few years ago after winning the 2020 bid. The vast majority of issues here are the same human errors (phishing, misplacing physical media) that plague every country.
Knowing the sheer volume of failed attacks that are happening daily, I’d wager this recruitment drive is as much about further improving digital forensics as defense.
