Posted in: If you have been working remotely since the pandemic began, what kind of work style would you prefer after (if) the pandemic has been eliminated? See in context

I can't get my office staff to do remote. They insist on being in the office. My floor staff doing the tooling and die work think they are nuts. Who wouldn't want to be home and get paid for it?

Posted in: There’s a limited quantity of vaccine available right now, so local governments have no alternative but to make better choices flexibly. For instance, by diverting vaccines earmarked for elderly people to medical personnel. See in context

I think it depends where you live. Miyazaki Prefecture announced this morning starting at 7am tomorrow the vaccine is available to anyone who wants it (7am to 5pm each day at the local health dept.). My bro in law in Kagoshima says they have been full on since May 1.

Posted in: Depending where you live, to what extent have you been complying with the Japanese government's request to observe anti-coronavirus measures during the current state of emergency and quasi-state of emergency? See in context

Seeing as I hate cigarette smoke, my family and I have not been into eating out anyway.

We wear a mask in shops and stores. We scrub our paws when we get home.

Miyazaki (Nobeoka where I live anyway) has had some strict policies: Masks required in all stores and public transport, Seating every other seat at counters, every other table in dining area, No alcohol served after 6pm, parks closed at 7pm, smoking rooms shut in buildings and malls, outdoor smoking areas no more than 3 people at a time, smoking areas outside of conbinis shut, no drinking or eating outside conbini, conbini and grocery store eat in areas shut.

"Police said the suspect has so far given no motive for attacking his girlfriend."

Does it matter? Attempted murder is still indefensible regardless of "motive".

Posted in: Golden Week travel begins despite pleas from governors to stay home See in context

So many of you want gov't officials and bureaucrats ordering everyone home? You want police at shutdown stations turning people away? Military men with weapons at airports ordering people back home? You want police in parks threatening to arrest parents with children for daring to go outside? You want roving bands of UK style "Covid Enforcement" patrols stopping people walking down the street demanding to know where they are going and where they live? Man some of you really want to be ruled by an iron fist dictator. North Korea and China are not too far away you know, you can move there. Not me, I prize my freedom too much.

No but the geniuses running the show will do it. All hail the great Olympics. The new Wizard of Oz. A little tyrant behind the curtain.

Posted in: Japan to introduce 'vaccine passports' for international travel See in context

1% of population vaccinated and they want vacpassport. This is the typical bureaucrat and pol disconnect that runs this place. What a comedy of errors. Please keep it up and keep us laughing.

Posted in: China, Japan trade acrimonious barbs over Fukushima tweet See in context

"A lot of passionate China haters here, what is up with that.."

The CCP is not China. The CCP deserves all the hate it gets, as most gov'ts do. Ask Tibetins, Vietnamese, Uighurs, Hong Koners, and displaced rural people in China about how they feel, and then ask your question.

It tastes just like the "hamburgers" and "BBQ rib" sandwiches in schools in Baltimore. We saw a box on the loading dock at the cafeteria one day: 100% Soy plant byproduct. Let that sink in BYPRODUCT.

Pass. Leave something naturally good alone.

Also why push a cafe in Gifu when variant strains of Covid are rampant. Is travel across this nation safe right now?

Since they aim their protest at Japan, shouldn't those signs be in Japanese?

Obviously aimed at locals for attention not Japan. Their 2 minutes of rage.

"Safety guarantee"

I can guarantee the safety of my own money, thank you.

I don't need Klaus Schwab and his cabal at WEF to handle it for me through the J gov't.
