I see ineptitude at all levels of the nuclear industry have remained the same. Don’t need a broken seismic machine or a recalibrated radiation detector to gather that information.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 178 coronavirus cases; below 200 for 1st time since Nov 24 See in context

didou Today 05:46 pm JST If numbers are hard to believe here, what about Taiwan, Vietnam or other successfull countries ? Can we trust those countries ?

If it is low, it is low, that's it. The explosion expected for months in Japan never happened. As simple as that. How do you know that without testing? Hospitals unable to function due to virus patients? No altopses so no figures on deaths. As you say might not be so bad but might not be so good, with no testing its guess work. Personally I'd like a scientific testing of a big control group, rather than a YouTube video.

Obsessing about tests? How else do you track the virus? A YouTube video? People dying around you.? It's just a test , 30,000 a day in Melbourne and a single positive is national news. The Shogani attitude just makes things worse. I'm more obsessed about mask wearing, wearing a mask in summer, just not a comfortable. But I don't want to get the virus and don't want to give someone the virus. Having a sweaty face for more than an hour I'm obsessed with that, but I don't want to die so as the locals say....Shogani?

3dr biggest economy in the world with 3rd world national diet. Pretty sure there is room for massive improvement. Or trust charity under fundeded nobody should be on one meal a day. This is what a modern county lets happen?

Err those in power can spend on girlie bars, while others are lucky to have one meal a day, something is not right. Isn't a government ment to improve life?

Posted in: Japanese companies shun blanket wage hikes amid coronavirus pain See in context

60% of Japan's income is domestic, it looks like 99% of politicians companies believe 40% is 100% and block any wage increase. Poverty for all except them. You can work excessively but can't benifit. Not quite a fair or rational system.

Posted in: Gov't, TEPCO ordered to pay damages over Fukushima nuclear crisis See in context

This is madness, the government didn't check safety, the company didn't care. And after 10 or so years people are still living in "temporary" housing? And the courts, the safety net of justice are just now grappling with a verdict, Come on it's not rocket science. I'd hate to be at the whim of justice in Japan.

So finally they sort of retired? Moved sideways as they are not named who knows? Senior Bueacatics would suggest 70 year old men who have no retirement plan or any idea how to live out their days with out tax payer money. That's a sad place to be.

Yes really. The government are so scared of foreigners, even a "permanent" visa (7years) is a problem. Can't vote and suspicious for stealing bikes. So far to go so long to fix. Oh a foreigner must be dangerous seems to be the policy.

Ricky you are right but as the system is coherent alternative is not viable. And that is the reason why a vision of the future is off the table. It's all about the status quo, old men making excessive amounts of tax tax payer money That stupidity they can't take to the Furness so why? ....stupidity and that's politics in Japan.

It's just training from youth, every detail of any decision is evaluated in detail. Males particularly have a sence of power. So this is the result, of training. Me I listen to my wife, she actually has good points. But then I didn't get the sexist training.

He is obviously bent out of shape, corruption nepotism not really an idol for good governance. The top bueuracrats are hardly leading the way for an honest system of governance. Scum is probably nor a strong enough verdict.
