Yes, Japan was unified with other countries that also had a huge spike in COVID infections and related deaths. Other than that there was nothing to speak of really. Oh, it did result in another person being fired from his job, Suga, to join the millions of others worldwide.

Posted in: The service will be available only for small dogs and cats. During flights, they will be required to be kept in cages placed on seats at the end of the row, with their owners seated next to them. See in context
Incredibly stupid idea, they must be really suffering with low ticket sales to come up with this disgusting idea.
Pet owners are delusional to begin with turning fido into their son. Put that combination with the pet, and maybe the owner also, unable to control their functions and you have a disgusting unsanitary combination. It is bad enough that pets crap all over parks where kids play but put them on a plane to foul the air and the area they are in? Stupid. Hope the airline does run the program and they lose even more passengers avoiding having to see dog excrement in the aisles or have some cat yowling for hours during the flight.

As the Delta variant became dominant in the U.S. this summer, data showed that unvaccinated Americans were 4.6 times as likely to be infected, 10 times as likely to be hospitalized and 11 times as likely to die from Covid-19 than vaccinated people.
Fact, not opinion. Anti-vaxers are the ones dying from their own delusions and conspiracy theory nuttiness. They need to be protected from their own stupidity like helmet laws for motorcycle drivers who want bodily autonomy. But non-helmeted riders only kill themselves usually, the anti-vaxers kill themselves and others as well.

Like those brave nurses who quit rather than give up their rights to bodily autonomy, a sizeable chunk of citizens simply won't budge.
Being dead is permanent loss of bodily autonomy. These sadly misinformed losers probably have inoculations for many other diseases like MMR but the COVID vaccination is a no go for these 3000. Hey, some people still believe the earth is flat too. There is no end to the impact of stupidity in society but when it comes to a pandemic stupid people have no right to kill others.

I am sure that just the opposite occurred, constructions was diverted from Tohoku to Tokyo. Another example of the Gold Metal disaster the Tokyo Olympics were with the biggest damage to Japan of course being the superspreader aspect of the Olympic flop.

diesel exhaust contains even more serious carcinogens than vegetable smoke in greater concentration including Formaldehyde
Formaldehyde is given off when cigarettes are burned. Diesel engines are not run in restaurants or other indoor locations.
Some of the chemicals found in tobacco smoke include:
Nicotine (the addictive drug that produces the effects in the brain that people are looking for)
Radioactive elements, such as polonium-210 (see below)
The weak "see what cars are doing" retort by smokers does nothing to reduce second hand smoke deaths caused by the sadly addicted to nicotine crowd. It is a red herring logical fallacy.

Posted in: Employees will be allowed to smoke during lunch and other breaks. But they will be asked to take some time before getting back to work after smoking as the risk of causing passive smoking is believed to linger for about 45 minutes after smoking. See in context
Yes smokers you do stink. Sometimes on the trains the stench is horrible. And those around you are taking in the thousands of toxics that are in your clothes after you smoke. They do not magically disappear.
Disgusting anti-social habit that needs to be severely taxed to capture all the external costs created by toxic smoke. Also raising the price is the only way the addicted losers who still smoke will eventually quit. Getting cancer is not enough as is clear now to all.

No interest whatsoever, and that was true for the proceeding superspreader event as well. Zero interest.
So many of the apologists for the Paralympics said this would help Japan accept the disabled, even though that was not the case the last time it was held in Japan. Well, we can say that it failed to move the needle on this social cause once again. People choose not to watch at all.

"I hope you will acknowledge your responsibility and negligence, and sincerely apologize to the bereaved family,"
The judge asked Iizuka to do the right think and I am sure he still refused as he continues to believe he is not at fault for killing the victims. Sad but not surprising. So many needless deaths caused by letting incapacitated seniors drive in this country. And since Japan continues to age this will only get worse. Nothing impactful will change as old people vote for the LDP.

These numbers are just the athletes. The true number of the superspreader Olympic events is in the tens of thousands. August 9th the government will suddenly declare the infection rates are serious.

20 year disaster. Eventually OBL was found and killed but in another country. Total and complete waste brought to you by the twin war criminals Bush Jr and Cheney. $2.3 trillion wasted on nothing. Biden did the right thing to finally end the catastrophe this invasion turned out to be. Iraq was even worse, creating ISIS.
But all the normal suspects at the time cheered on this invasion and also the Iraq invasion based on lies. Maybe they will learn something for once. Maybe not. Being totally wrong again changes nothing.

What does the country expect after the mismanagement of the last year and half. How can Koike say stay home and let 100,000 blue into the country for a sporting event/super spreader event?

Posted in: There's no change to the fact that there are many infections within households, but infections at day care centers and other such facilities are also occurring. Children under the age of 12 aren't getting vaccinated, so I'd like their parents to get vaccinated to prevent infections. Another thing is that there are many cases in which the actions of one adult result in an entire family becoming infected. See in context

Getting COVID and dying from it are now is a voluntary decision.
This just shows that the politicalizing of the pandemic by Trump from day one resulted in the needless deaths of many, many Americans and that continues on to the present. People are dying from Covid now because they chose to get sick and die, because they believe that orange fraud who mislead them over the facts of the pandemic and what science has proven over and over again.

Of course the pandemic causes economic loss and the sooner it is addressed the faster the economy returns to normal. That its the adult way to looks at a pandemic. But we have the childish views spouted by the weak for one plus years now that says trying to stop the pandemic harms the economy.. If not for the vaccines the world would be in a depression now. Non-vaccinated people are 27 time more likely to end up in the hospital than the vaccinated. Data, fact, the truth. Some cannot handle it.

In California, unvaccinated people are more than six times as likely to contract the coronavirus than those who have their shots, according to state data released on Monday.
And in Los Angeles County, the state’s most populous, an unvaccinated person is as much as 25 times more likely to be hospitalized with the disease.
“That, in a sense, is our proof that vaccines work,” said Dr. Robert Kim-Farley, an infectious-disease expert at the University of California, Los Angeles’s Fielding School of Public Health.
A recent survey by the University of Southern California found that people who were unvaccinated were more likely than the vaccinated to go to a bar or a friend’s house and less likely to wear a mask or avoid large gatherings
In other words, people who choose not to get vaccinated are also probably less worried about Covid-19 and take fewer safety precautions, contributing to their risk of falling ill, said Kevin Malotte, a professor emeritus of epidemiology at Cal State Long Beach.
“Lack of mask measures, lack of worry about it, lack of vaccination are all kind of the syndrome, and I think that’s what we’re seeing correlate with the high rates,”
in other words stupid is as stupid does. it is like smokers who know they will get lung cancer. but smoke anyway. But with COVID the anti-vaxxers spread their disease to others like a typhoid Mary. Facts, the enemy of the deluded anti-vaxxer crowd.

"Tokyo is hosting the Paralympic Games for the second time, so this time round we need to bring change to society," Tokyo 2020 chief Seiko Hashimoto said Monday. "If we can achieve that, we can consider the Paralympics a success."
Well, get ready for a double failure Hashimoto. The event will make not a single bit of difference to the
disabled. Nothing, just like the first event.. And second some of the athletes, like the 500 in the first Gold Metal Disaster, will get sick and some may die. Without question this second sports event will make the pandemic worse in Japan and more Japanese will die because of it. We estimate about half the deaths in Japan are due to the government mismanagement of the pandemic in favor of the Olympic sponsors.
Like others I will not watch any of the events, to do so is to contribute to the debacle the Olympics have become this year thanks to the LDP and that fool Koike in Tokyo.

It is a fact that the Olympics was a super spreader event, scientist predicted exactly what would happen and it did occur. Delta was in the country before the Olympics, but lambda was not. That was brought in during the Olympics. Simply a Gold Metal Disaster for the country. And still the leadership is betting against the people and now young kids in favor of the virus.

I thought I was reading the Onion here, are they insane? The LDP and those involved in the Olympics are genuinely insane. The kids can watch on TV in their classrooms or at home, to have 140,000 of then gather in buses and auditoriums when infections are running out of control due to the previous superspreader Olympics? Insane.
Japan is unmanaged right now, the LDP is beyond incompetent. This has been true for decades but now it is obvious to even die hard LDP supporters. The LDP is trying to kill you and has been since Feb 2020 starting with the Diamond Princess disaster.
