Posted in: Suga says SDF facing challenging security environment See in context

"Unprecedented challenges and threats may emerge and new missions may be assigned to the SDF,"

Again, he's just pointing out the obvious. Does he think this is the job of a leader?

However, large companies, thru the use of apps and smart phones are displacing local bike rental shops. 

So for the sake of “local” shops, we forgo of progress?

Posted in: Japanese startup, university develop 2-minute COVID-19 test See in context

Would be nice if the tests are easily accessible to anyone. In other countries, tests are free. In Japan, it's either you pay 20,000yen or be almost dying before you can get tested.

To finish the 4.8M HW in a month's time, Japan has to 8x their effort. Good luck with that.

hampered by a lack of supply.

That last sentence is not factual. There are way more supplies that aren’t being used yet. Stop blaming other countries for Japan’s slowness.

Posted in: Japan decides not to procure insulin syringes for COVID-19 vaccinations See in context

If we procure these syringes, then we can no longer explain why the vaccination is going very very slow. At least now we can always claim that it’s because of syringe shortage...

Posted in: 25 health care workers in Japan suffer anaphylaxis after vaccination See in context

Get ready for lots of propaganda about the “safe japanese made vaccines” in a few months time.

But Japan is not making any covid vaccine. They will manufacture from a foreign designed one, though. That doesn't count as "made in Japan".

Posted in: 25 health care workers in Japan suffer anaphylaxis after vaccination See in context

People with known allergies should be careful in taking any vaccine. It's true even for yearly flu vaccine. This shouldn't be a deterrent for others to take the covid one, especially if they have no allergies (like me).

Blaming the audience for crap Japanese drama? Does he ever wonder why Korean romance/dramas are a hit in Japan? Seriously?

Posted in: Japan to allow use of insulin syringes for COVID-19 vaccines See in context

Blaming EU for the slow roll out? Last time I check there are almost 2M doses in Japan already and less than 50,000 used. Still Pfizer’s fault?

Posted in: Japanese media urged to address male dominance following Mori uproar See in context

Variety shows and news programs have the same structure in which a young woman listens to what a middle-aged man says.

And they are required to react as if the man had said something so "profound".

Posted in: Japan may approve 2nd COVID-19 vaccine in May: health minister See in context

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga has repeatedly said vaccinations are a decisive step to bring the pandemic under control as early as possible.

This is all he can do as a leader? State the obvious?

Posted in: No. of people out and about in Tokyo up despite extended virus emergency See in context

But everyone else, As long as you take precautions & use common sense, get out & live your lives !

The only reason you get to get out alive is because of the people who chose to stay home.

Do you really think you can "physically distance" if everyone is out and about?

Posted in: Japan embarks on random and targeted COVID-19 testing, but some experts call for more See in context

One year later, Japan is testing. Why? Because now they know how and they had one year to devise a perfect plan.

The lack of urgency is appalling.

I'll bet the Prosecutors will divide the charges to ridiculously lengthen the detention. 23 days, smuggling Ghosn from his apartment to a hotel. +23days, smuggling Ghosn from the hotel to the train station. +23days, smuggling Ghosn from train station A to train station B. +23 days, smuggling Ghosn from train station B to the airport. etc. etc.

Japan Prosecutors are a nasty bunch, but they sure are resourceful.

Posted in: 2 Americans wanted in Ghosn's escape now in Japanese custody See in context

Japanese prosecutors itching to take revenge is just pathetic. I'll bet they will be detained for hundreds of days for the irrational fear of incompetent Prosecutors of "destroying evidence". It's sad to be a lawyer in Japan. People look at them like a joke.

Why can't they just use the vaccine as soon as it arrives. This endless planning is criminal.
