The only way it was stopped last time was when all the athletes quit. They need to do that same thing again

Sorry but this is a good news story. They are forced to pay workers more, maybe even close on weekends, scale down their ridiculous numbers. Could be a result of the death toll or that they found more meaningful work, which is good for them.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic organizers reverse plan to allow alcohol at venues See in context

"In principle, after much deliberation and in consultation with experts (who are not in charge for some reason), we have decided, after their recommendations, (because they can make decisions while we have no contingency plans after a year) to do our utmost to avoid the necessity of considering possibility of avoiding the sale of alcohol in stadiums during the Olympics, (because alcohol severely crushes your immune system during a deadly pandemic that it could be life threatening and is really bad form). if in a week (although testing only makes sense in 14 days so what are we even saying at this point is going to be meaningless so as to let you down slowly instead), the measures undertaken under the quasi state of emergency reduce infections to 1/3 of the number as of June 12 (based on measurements we'll keep secret based on variants we won't disclose either, without any confidence interval 19 times out of 20), which will allow us to the consider the possibility of relaxing measures regarding the sale of alcohol (never going to happen in a week because math), after further consultation with experts (who will say no again why are you asking us again we told you last year like 20 times). Thanks for your patience. (see you at the next meeting! dibs on chair #7!)

Alcohol suppresses the immune system so not a great idea during a pandemic. Should have had a V8

Posted in: Nissan CEO promises turnaround for disgruntled shareholders See in context

Ghosen was never the source of their problems. With him gone and innovation with it, they'll bleed talent and staff until they go under.

The real problems for the entire world to see were the double standard of Saikawa who left under the same charges to Ghosen but who just stepped down, wasn't jailed. How easy it was to put your personal business rivals in jail. The whole prosecutor ambivalence to international standards with hostage justice ruined whatever reputation Japan had left

Foreign investment will think twice and not bother

So Nissan got its wish, no more investment.

Posted in: 29-year-old Tokyo man arrested after letting schoolgirl live with him See in context

Sounds more like she abandoned a bad home situation. What person doesn't have a phone? Did the parents call her and she didn't answer?

if she went herself it's not abduction, if she can come and go as she pleases it's not confinement, if the family is not being asked for money it's not randsom, if she had her phone with her it's not a lack of communication. What part of this is kidnapping?

Thus even if the man assumed her parents knew of the trip, the charges would fall under harbouring a minor not kidnapping or abduction, that seems overly harsh. He's also a lawyer so there's a sense of community support. He admitted to the crime.

But that's as far as the facts of the story goes. Some speculation follows.

There may be more to play out about this case as the man is himself a lawyer, so should have understood that harbouring a minor was illegal. He would have had a lot of time to think about that, as she planned this days/weeks in advance and still had not told the parents. That's a high level of disdain right there.

Thus I'm assuming she left her phone off or didn't answer when she left that night. Parents got worried in a single night for some reason and immediately called the police. Perhaps she had already threathened to run away or they had suspected something. Then rather than talk to her beforehand they just let it happen. More abandonment

So all in all just a sad tale. Family counselling would be useful here, something the police should consider.

But the police will wash their hands of it. The only person who listened to her has been arrested. The minor will be returned to the family she fears or hates and that can lead to new problems or even tragedy.

The organizing committee also said it will not distribute condoms to participants during their stay in the village but on their departure, a break from recent Olympic tradition.

Yeah, that's not how that works!

Might as well distribute sleeping pills
