You are just explaining us that life is not about just having a work in Tokyo that requires you to live in tiny rooms.

Why do you think I prefered to live further from main capital city than others saying they liked being in the center of the world.

Environment is all and first for health reasons. Enough space is vital, as it shows. Bad policy to accept unlivable places.

Coronavirus does not care where people work.

Brick lane packs them in tight. yes I have eaten at Curry Restaurants in Southall, Ealing.

Need to book in advance due to there popularity.

The challenge living in Japan is sourcing ingredients, plenty to choose from, experimentation.

You can get boil in the bag curries from about ¥80 if you're not choosy. Made in Japan variants invariably have MSG (look for アミノ酸等 in the ingredients). Thai-made curries are often additive free, but include chicken.

MTR has excellent additive-free, made in India vegetarian curries.

Many of London's 'unlicensed' (to sell alcohol) curry houses don't mind BYO, but ask first. Brick Lane is great for layers of immigrant history - its mosque was previously a synagogue, and a Huguenot church before that. It's great place for 24 hr bagels, too, but if you want an authentic Indian experience in London, go west to Southall.

Think of the athletes. They have literally worked their whole lives for this.

Plenty of other people have worked their whole lives (not just their youth) to build businesses, which are being shredded by economic lockdowns. Is there a reason why athletes should get preferential treatment over everyone else?

I highly doubt the Olympics will be canceled, but not for the sake of the athletes. There’s simply too much money in it.

Pure left wing woke cherry picking cos it's politically correct. How about entrepreneurs with physical or mental disabilities? How about entrepreneurs coming from one parent backgrounds? Or orphans? The point is this kind of self righteo

Japan has more registered players than some of the home Unions particularly Ireland, Wales & Scotland.

I agree with Mr Kipling and have always been been frustrated by the need to introduce foreign players to bolster the ranks at the expense of promising local players. That mindset of acquiring big names on their off contract is more common place these days and quite unfair to local talent. Something needs to change in Japan as the pension plan for semi retiring Intl Rugby players., the system is just getting used and has become a joke imo and even players have gone on the record to say Japan is an easy out and paycheck...easy on the body good for the wallet...

With family in Europe, and having traveled there, my impression is that they already live much more sustainably than we do over here in the States. While traveling, we noticed that we could go a whole day and see only one big pickup truck. Over here they are ubiquitous.

Everywhere we went we saw that people would hang their laundry up to dry, rather than use a clothes dryer. Again, unlike over here.

While walking down a hallway at night, the lights had automatic timers to turn them off once they were not needed, unlike here.

I noticed that food portions tend to be much smaller than ours.

So, a few things about Europe that are already pretty good.

These people were on a flight from Los Angeles.

The news has been saying that one out of every three people in LA is currently testing positive for the coronavirus, with hospital beds full. IMO, even some people who test negative may be in the early stages of the infection, and thus all travelers should be put into quarantine before being turned loose into the general populace.

It was also reported that last week the Trump administration finally decided that all international travelers to the US have to test negative for the virus before being allowed in. So, ten months after the official start of the pandemic, and ten months after letting more than 40,000 people from China disperse across America, the US is finally doing something proactive about keeping people who test positive out of the country.

Just an aside, but I took my university entrance exam in the room shown in the picture in 1998. Very nostalgic. But there were no Xs on the tables, and as I remember, there were 3 people per table the year I sat for the exams.

Teenage years can be a stuggle for anyone even without bullies.

I wish there was some way for kids to realize what a very short period of time those few years are, and as Glen1 points out you can and will be happy.

Tragic.

many on Twitter actually thought the idea to be rather tasteless.

Actually you know what was tasteless? Devoting half the length of an article about something as tragic as this to quoting Twitter trolls disparaging the grieving parents.

Seriously, why was that neccesary?

Please do not get comfortable with this number which is incredibly high for a Saturday. A friend who works inside the government has stated that the numbers are expected to rise to the 3000 a day mark and due to the long weekend last week the testing is down.
