The small flame did not lose hope, and just like the cherry blossom buds that are ready to bloom, it was waiting for this day." Really? What an insane comment, like saying the virus is waiting to bloom. "But there are still many people who can't return to their homes, and many difficult issues such as reviving these areas and rebuilding the lives of their residents, But they are not politicians or beauracracts 10 years of being treated as dross and rolled out as propaganda You must be joking," the man yelled. "Everyone knows we can't have the Olympics." he has a point! But sadly the joke is on him and the rest of us.

Shouldn’t even be news, should not be on the news. Certainly isn’t a threat at all. A few rockets plunging into the sea. Kim wants attention don’t give him attention. Dudes has some serious Heath issues, so wait and see. Someone might pop a brown bag behind him one day and then it’s his sister we have to worry about. Now that would be funny the first female leader in this part of the world from North Korea?

Amid fears!, crisis management 101 if there are fears cancel it.
“The power of sports is something that can be delivered to not only Japan but to the world,” Sasaki said.
Except the world are banned from attending? So it’s a Japanese sports event, sausage and rice bentos.

I remember seeing these Cherry Flower things in 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 and so on. I know it's a culture thing but really congregations is not the brightest thing in the middle of an evolving pandemic. Stay home reminiscing with the the thousands of photos taken over your life time.

Face it it's the most expensive Japanese sports day/week ever. And they have banned cheering have they not? So when everyone is wearing a mask, not able to cheer. Who can tell. It's only a matter of time before countries Atherletes pull out. And then the locals will have a medal fest. Propaganda will have a field day.

creative director Hiroshi Sasaki resigned on Thursday
think he might also have realized there is not much creative to direct. I’m sure he was given a list to use by “some”advertising firm. And his best option？
dress a woman in a pig suit.? Not really an appropriate look at an international event. A large group of dancing girls dressed as school children, creepy. A large group of girl men dancing, creepy. Two adults yelling at each other and slapping each other’s heads, doesn’t translate. Not really a lot to work with for an international audience.

Yes a foreign person can get a gun licence, it's only for three years and the paper work involved alone puts many off. It's literally a huge ring binder,. Then there is buying of bullets. I have no problem with hunting, wild meat as a zig you don't get from mass slaughter animals. I looked into bow hunting as an alternative but hunting arrows are banned so, it's just not worth the effort.

It will be turned over at a higher court level, bigotry again will win over intelligence. And that's after a panel of "experts" have talked about it for a year. It's Japan.

Companies saw their profits rise in the last eight years, (and tax reduction) stock market made record gains. something is seriously wrong with how people are paid. And I bet politicians and bureaucrats get a pay rise. As pol pot said freedom is the absence of choice.

When watching J hunters on TV they always wear high vis clothing? Is that the rule? There is undoubtedly a filing cabinet of rules attached to a gun licence, perhaps not shooting your friends should be emphasised.

How does being the CEO of a train company make you an expert on this topic? This is the second or third panel, it's just more tax payer money going to friends of the LDP with no results. There will be no change.

This is the Bored of education? God help the students, teachers under their control. Habitual? Two minutes early? Ring leader? Two minutes early? This has to be one of the most stupidest stories I've read. Definatly emailing this one around the world, in two minutes.

I always wondered what NTT stood for Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp Telegraph? didn't see that coming NFT might have been a better option (Fax) 30 years ago NIT would be upto date (Internet) and nits are just as annoying and has had to get rid of as these corrupt old men, requires a head shave and a hot bath in bleach.

No health problems have so far been reported from the patients, according to the police.
so (at the moment) they have a skill level equal to a doctor. Think that’s the part that hurts.

Meanwhile, the ministry said it will investigate 144 officials over whether they have ever been wined and dined by people involved with entities the ministry supervises
He also apologized for obtaining from the ministry a license for The Cinema 4K channel based on false information the company submitted stating that it is less than 20 percent foreign-owned.
144? The corruption is breathtaking. False information? Doesn’t the ministry check? Where are the prosecutors?

Harry watch the news past and present and future, I was interested in building a house so contacted what I believed was a reputable company....had a a visit from a salesman who wanted me to sign a contract that he insisted was just to meet monthly sales targets and I would not be held to it? So a contract has no value? I didn't sign. I got a family Buisness to build my house. It's a rampant practice there are no checks no penalties. The bigger the company the less you should trust, Olympus, That air bag company, Nissan, construction companies, mansions leaning on each other, leaking again and again it's fraud that keeps them financially buoyed. Best avoid them all

Years ago I worked briefly at a high school, was given the previous teachers lunch coupons, after 2 days handed them back. It was a disgusting lunch. I don’t know how students or staff could hold it down. Conformity even in the face of disgusting foods trumped taste buds. I just made my own lunch after that. Just because you are told something is wonderful doesn’t make it wonderful.

He should never be named, he is a pusstules that popped and is wiped away. Everybody in the prison system knows who he is. And that's all that need to know. Giving him a name gives him notoriety, He will survive and die in hell. Forgotten and unremarkable. Scum

Harry served on the ground in Afganistan as a forward air controller and in the air as an Apache attack helicopter pilot. That's not something many people do, added to that his head was worth a prize. Now anyone commenting negatively about him, did you do that? He also started the support/ games for disabled veterans. Walked to the North Pole again how many of us have the will to push ourselves to that extreme. He might have been a royal but he is a leader I would trust his judgment above my own I have never achieved anything like he has.

In another year, need meetings the last 12 months were a test run. You know small masks nobody used, ¥100,000 covers a month perhaps of income loss, now dithering on getting people vaccinated, the all cost Olympics and the idea of a solidarity tax? I seriously doubt the government are capable of any decision that ends well for tax (slave) payers.

I think most readers understand that it’s a been a huge cash grab for those connected, the economic devastation was planned happened before the disaster sports week was cancelled. Now the rush is on to squeeze as much money as they can out of tax payer pockets before the disaster is actually (canceled) start.
