Starbucks? Not so big in much of Europe/Australasia.
The article is about Japan. Tho I agree that the coffee there is... can we even call it coffee?

Let's stop making the world in China, said no one ever when they thought about boycotting the country. But that would mean paying better wages, benefits and stuff to workers so no, let's better boycott China some other way that doesn't involve my business changing production somewhere else (and giving them more money) again, said no one ever.

Those places reek of cigarettes smell, one of the big reasons Starbucks ate them alive.
So was smoking, which is why the ceiling is the color it is.

If they don't stop the infection being passed there's no justification for social pressure to take these

I think they should eliminate separate events for men and women. They should compete with equality.
That already happens in 'murica, where men who identify themselves as "women" are legally allowed to compete in athletic events against real women.

Do it... unless it's the useless stuff as Cocoa (why the name?).
If you bring all that people into town, trace everywhere they go if you you want them to abide by the rules. I can tell you that foreigners in party mode won't care not even a tiny bit.
Kutchan right now is having a cluster of infections and it's because (mostly the non Japanese) community cannot care any less about the virus. On Feb 13th there was a party with tons of people right next to each other, no masks, distancing, and now we're having a cluster of infections.
In the building in staying there was an infection. The person recently left and everyone (including me) were told to say put and isolate till the 27th even after testing negative. Well, everyone still going out and today everyone's skiing like nothing. Further spreading the virus and this thing will never come to an end. And yes, most of them are foreigners. Same thing happened on January 1st.
Do like South Korea and be strict. Too much freedom and look at 'murica and GoTo Travel times.

Anything before 2010. Just ignore the PC offended by everything. PC culture is a cancer.

About 85% of the terrain in Hakkoda is "outside of the ski controlled area. Hakkoda is all about backcountry.

Just tell them that you won't pay and don't sign any papers. Three weeks ago the NHK guy came to my door and tried tricking me into paying even after I told him I don't have a TV (last the I had was in 2010). He said it's the law, yada yada, I told that him I don't care and won't pay. He left, tho only after I told him to do so.

So instead of pushing back at the narrow-mindedness of the people making judgements based on outdated gender stereotypes...
Lol. No. They're not pushing back or standing against outdated stereotypes. They are creating more stereotypes.

Poor kid. They are going to confuse him (sheem?). When the kid starts getting bullied in school they will start pointing fingers everywhere except where they should be rightly pointing, at themselves.

Street punk. Throw the book at him
Won't happen as he's still a "teenage kids" according to the laws. Old enough to get credit cards, an apartment, enlist on the army and old enough to commit crime but not old enough to pay for it. Weird how the laws work.

Oh boohoo! So Japanese are complaining they have to actually quarantine themselves in a foreign country and not "word of mouth" quarantine like in Japan. Have they been blocked from entering the country?

You seriously think that it's inconceivable to quit if the head of your organization you are volunteering for does something that you don't agree with?
What I seriously think I'd that people need to stop being so sensitive already and grow a thicker skin.

Mori is Mori, I'm not his volunteer. I'm a volunteer working to carry out the Tokyo Olympics," she added
Exactly. Volunteering for Tokyo Olympics and not for that dinosaur. All the volunteers who quit "because of what he said" were just looking for an excuse to quit.

It's also possible that these after effects are actually side effects from the volley of medications and treatments given to Covid patients.
Still denying this virus is a threat, no matter how much proof is shown or how many deaths.

Posted in: Boarded-up stores, shuttered restaurants, bars and coffee shops and empty office towers: COVID-19 has emptied many city centers around the world as company employees work remotely. Is this a good thing for any city? What are some ways to bring economic activity and "buzz" back to business districts in the post-coronavirus era? See in context
Good or bad, we're in a pandemic so it's really shoganai.
