“We have tried everything we can to stop this!” proclaims government that has done very little.

"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.

Classic Japan, try to fix the thing in front of you rather than looking at the cause of the issue. Matching people won't make them have more kids when social requirements and restrictions make it so difficult to do so for many who would otherwise want children.

The revised law does not clarify whether the scheme will include foreign residents of Japan, but health ministry officials have said they expect them to be covered.
I am interested to know why there is doubt that it would not... I believe all legal residents, including those who are not Japanese by birth, are covered equally under Japanese constitution.

He attempted to object, but the men told him, "We're social distancing. Get lost," so in the end he could do nothing.
It is a shame they were social distancing from intelligence.

he proves it by hilariously saying katsu curry instead of otsukare (“good work”) when he leaves the office.
if that’s what is deemed “hilarious” then I would wager this show isn’t worth your time at all.

And who’s going to pay for educating foreign children? Japanese payers, not the governments of the children’s home countries.
If the parents are tax payers here, then what is the issue?

Does Japan have the worst cybersecurity of any developed country, or does Japan have the worst cybersecurity of any developed country?
Japan isn’t really any better or worse than anywhere else to be honest. As with most countries, social engineering is where Japan gets hit hardest. Doesn’t matter how good your digital security is if you have employees who fall for phishing attempts.
