Posted in: Japan, S Korea divided over wartime history, Fukushima water release See in context

The current generation Japanese and Korean have nothing to do with WW2 so they don't need to point fingers. German can also live peacefully with all other countries they invaded.

Japan has apologised many times and there is an official record. Korean is just repeating this issue every year again. People are tired of it and want to move on.

@P. Smith maybe you should check how often Japan government has apologized and paid.

What happened is awful but there should a point in time it has to stop, be accepted and move on.

Germany is also moving on with the other countries.

Posted in: Want a job? Employers say: Talk to the computer See in context

The issue here is that humans are social beings. 70% of our communication is nonverbal. Our face impressions are important.

Knowing the job is also important but most is learned on the job.

AI is still not flawless enough to justify a pass or not.

I don't have memory, or I don't recal is often used when someone get caught in Japan. Is this a way they think they can prevent imprisonment?

There are cases that people don't remember due shock but is that in this case also?

This has nothing to do with 99% conviction rate. They helped Ghosn to escape and they got caught. Now they are victim of Ghosn who is free, laughing and pleating to be innocent.

So Japan can save their sushi. What about all the other people? Where is the priority? I work in the pharmaceutical world but Japan is randomly doing things. Meanwhile 10% of the population is vaccinated once. I have seen people dying because of coronavirus.

@Tom Doley

Almost 40% of Japanese above 30 are still virgins. Get these people to date each other, then you’ll have an explosion of babies. What’s wrong with these people? I dated at least 3 different girls a week on average. C’mon guys, do your job.

How disrespectful can you be and also show that you do not know the problem which is causing the birth rate decrease.

And again j-gov is having wrong priorities.

It should prioritize the workers, people we have contact jobs such as bars, restaurants. They are the be suffering and losing money.

Posted in: Japan may provide AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine to Taiwan See in context

Since AZ vaccination still has some health risk (blood clot) the government is not willing to take the risk with elderly people. So just give away to Taiwan and if the approve the will use. If they reject than a lot of vaccinations will end up as waste.

Also i assume there are political relationship due the tense situation with China.

But why not provide to countries who do not have money.

Often when japanese loses temper they want to kill someone. There are many cases and than not included cases where someone feels the need to kill. Japanese culture is beautiful but society is something to be worried.

Something is really wrong with japanese society

Posted in: Record low number of pregnancies reported in Japan in 2020 See in context

Start asking babies is so old fashioned and disrespectful to women.

It is a womens equality and freedom of choice.

Japan is not the only country in the world with birth rate decrease. It is globally in many economical countries.

Modern society is expensive that both partners need to work for income stability, economic opportunity and national, international crisis.

@Scarce you should live in America since you want money.

For you it seems America this, America that.

Free doesn't exists and the money is paid by tax and need to be paid back somehow. Is the same for America.

On topic:

Supporting people who can use the money is just a small gesture.

It is not enough for small businesses, households who are in need.

Japan need to increase the vaccinations so that people can go back to normal, if that is still possible.

Healthy care in Japan was always not strong. Now this pandemic is showing how this system is crumbling.

There are countries with worse cases but barely keep there heads up. Japan has a long way to go.

Still in Japan people are saying to stay away from foreigners to prevent the spread. Still this makes me tired how ignorant some are.

Some products from Japanese manufacturers are good quality but the main reason why japan is falling behind with consumer electronics is the lack of innovation. Other companies are having more innovation and prices are more competitive.

Posted in: Nothing can stop Tokyo Olympics from going ahead: IOC's Coates See in context

While Japan's COVID-19 outbreak remains much smaller than in many countries, with just over 10,500 deaths, its vaccine rollout is moving slowly and polls show most Japanese people support cancellation or another delay.

Just over 10500 deaths.

Can this sentence be revised. Those are human lives. Not just 10500 deaths.

@smithinjapan,

You have no idea what the total picture was. You just put the finger but i wonder how you would feel if it happened to you and people say those words the way you do. But i don't think you have children.

Having a little bit respect is not much to ask right?

Everyone is waiting.

Foreigners are also getting the vaccine like everyone.

Yes Japan is slow but don't worry due the virus mutations the change is high the vaccines will not be sufficient anymore.

Posted in: 'No-Mask Picnic Day' organizers cancel their outing See in context

It is not the outdoor but the people who distributes the virus. People don't realize what the virus do when someone is getting sick.

Having an organized picknick without carrying should be prohibited. When people who don't care get sick than they want all the medical attention.

I'm working in the pharmaceutical and have seen cases i hope people will not experience.

Posted in: Japan's neighbors react strongly to Fukushima water release decision See in context

It is interesting to read all the comments and point the finger to Japan. China is polluting much more and already areas are inhabitant.

Not long time ago nuclear waste was already being disposed in sea by France and England and even the USA. There is enough nuclear was on the bottom of the ocean already which are more concentrated in steal barrels. In Germany a whole village had to move because the cave where the nuclear waste is stored and sealed with concrete is cracking due lack of maintenance.

There is no right way to dispose the waste unless we all want to use fossil fuel again or go back to the dark ages.

@sakurasuki

*The foundation is the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS 1982). It says that a country may claim an area extending 12 nautical miles from its coast as its own territorial sea.*

But I do unstand your meaning that will impact globally.

Unfortunately there is no easy other solution.

The idea is to dilute the waste material to reduce the contaminated water.

Putting underground will have also negative impact (happened in the past)

It is a grownup with a childish and selfish mindset. That he may disagree with rules or requests is something he may do at home. There are people we care about their health.

This person need mental support because something is really wrong with him.
