Invest in commodities, we are at the start of a commodity super cycle and you need some protection from the risk of rapid inflation this kind of cash infusion creates.

Posted in: From Apu to Aladdin: Why white voices will no longer do See in context

These three famous people: Suzanne Pleshette, David Ogden Stiers, and John Ratzenberger were all hired and paid to do voices in "Spirited Away." A quick scan of the actors paid to do the English voices in "Spirited Away" reveals not a single person with a Japanese name or who looks Japanese.

For the upcoming Miyazaki animation "How Do You Live?" it is of vital importance that only people of Japanese ancestry be hired to do the English Voices!

According to IMBD most of the sound crew who worked on "37 Seconds" have Korean names. Outrageous! Only Japanese people can edit the voices of Japanese actors.

I saw a white person eating sushi! Call the PC police!

Posted in: Panel urges quick adoption of carbon pricing to hit emissions goal See in context

Japan already has "carbon pricing" if you include the taxes on fuel and the tax on car's engines. Both of these taxes are designed to discourage fossil fuel consumption.

Japan will reduce CO2 emissions organically with a falling population so there is little to gain from taxing folks more than they already pay on fossil fuels.

By September, travel from Japan to Florida and from Florida to Japan will not have any more risk to the local population than travelling from Tokyo to Oita.

Posted in: UK to push at G-7 for global standard on 'vaccine passports' See in context

After the fall, when 80% of the people in G7 countries have been vaccinated, travel between G7 countries should return to "wide open" and these travel controls will be meaningless.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 272 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,032 See in context

Numbers are dropping dramatically everywhere in the world and the medical industry really can't say why.

Not enough people have been vaccinated to explain the drop off in cases worldwide. It could be as simple as we are running out of vulnerable people to catch it.

Kinda of a relief reading the comments here. Social media is foul with what seems like half of America laughing at the people in Texas suffering a natural disaster that has caused cascading power and water outages for millions of folks. That kind of mean spiritness would not happen in Japan.

Probably would be helpful if Canada's Trudeau didn't take a bunch of vaccines from Covax. Canada has slipped into third world status and had to get vaccines from the UN.

Posted in: Trudeau defends Canada taking COVID vaccines from sharing program See in context

@Strangerland Everyone in Canada is outraged. I think Canada ranks somewhere around 33rd in vaccines administered per 100 people. The US is around 11% of people vaccinated while just across the snowy border Canada is around 2.7%.

Instead of investing in the vaccine being developed across the border in the US, Trudeau put money into a Chinese vaccine only to have China pull the rug out from under that genious plan.

Trudeau may have succeeded in "trolling the extreme for right" but failed Canada's citizens in getting vaccines.
