Posted in: Japan halts use of 1.63 mil Moderna vaccine doses over contamination See in context

I got my second shot last week and the lot was among the 3 being recalled. I think before rushing to hasty conclusions or panicking, as Virusrex said, we just need to wait to know what type of contaminant it is. I would be surprised if the issue was only for Japan or if this type of problem was uncommon when dealing with massive vaccination programs. Let's just wait for the results. I am still happy I could get my 2 shots. The vaccine is quite effective and many people in Tokyo or Japan still haven't had the chance to get one shot due to supply shortage. With the spread of Delta and the rising risk of new variants I still think that vaccine is the best way.

Posted in: Fans to be banned from Olympic events in Tokyo, 3 neighboring prefectures See in context

What a bad joke these Olympics… and next they will ban the athletes from attending the event leaving in the end only the IOC members and Suga and friends

As so many have said the Olympics should have been cancelled or postponed again….

But the show must go on …(elections are close)

I once used to find the Olympics magic as a child but the harsh reality with all the money/power play is just disheartening….

the article only mentions a few of the evidence they have. As a french citizen myself I have followed the case. They have gathered overwhelming evidence on him.

Posted in: Japanese restaurant in Paris vandalized with 'coronavirus' graffiti See in context

Some of the comments on this thread are disturbing.

Had it been a Chinese restaurant would it have been acceptable??

Most japanese restaurants in France are managed by people of South East Asian or Chinese ancestry.

It s true that most people in France (but I think most people outside Asia) cannot tell the difference between a Chinese or Korean or Japanese.

Can you really blame them?

How many Asians can tell the origin between caucasian or even black people?

And how many westerners really can ?

Posted in: Japanese hit song 'Paprika' goes global with English version by new singers and dancers See in context

Actually Alex080 is right

Yonezu is extremely popular now and has been in the top of the charts for quite some time recently. Nothing to do with Pikotaro or such crazy trend.

Maybe people should make a quick check on the net before making comments

Kids do love the song, singing and dancing along but not the same way as they loved Pikotaro. Pikotaro is a comedian. Yonezu is a very popular musician who happened to make a hit for Kids.

Maybe we should just wait for more evidence instead of jumping to convenient conclusions. It seems some people on this forum (usually always the same) only see what they wang to see

Posted in: More wartime labor suits filed in S Korea against Japanese firms See in context

i think most people here agree that someone has to pay for using such things as slave labor for their own profit. The point questioned here is not that but after how long and after paying how much can someone still claim compensation.

So just saying you have to pay for the bad things you need is just too simple.

Going with this logic what should European countries who based the build up of their economy exploiting colonies for their own profit do ?

What if families of people exploited in Africa or Asia some 200 hundred years ago (and for some of them not that far) for the profit of Euopean companies should then start sueing European companies?

This will have no end...
