What a brainless idea. But....If that massive virus spreading (btw. Not only corona) is really re-activated and the Games canceled, I would say we are due again. lol

A prepared and safely placed razor blade in the bra or underwear or covered as necklace and such will do. She can treat the attackers once and for all well and then ‘swim’ unhurt out of those strange guys bloody tainted apartment. Be creative, design something wonderful that fits for your cases.

No, you select nothing, because all your budgets will soon come under discussion and then brought to zero, while urgently needed for everything else. Not this year, I know, but very soon on a historical timeline.

No, it’s really cute. I know, you would surely have chosen a skull or a monster, just to amplify the fear spreading instead. Both doesn’t really help , so the cute one is better, ok? But of course, even I have to admit that it shouldn’t be such unfitting

Posted in: U.S. envoy Kerry starts climate talks in China See in context

China, the world's biggest polluter, announced an ambitious target to be carbon-neutral by 2060, but analysts have warned high reliance on coal and modest short-term targets could scupper the ambition.

How naive that is. Wake up from your illusionary comatose. They simply don’t have there any of such ambitions, as that would even in the most modest form would contradict their schedules and intentions. But so it’s more and more easy for them to economically take over, as the whole stupid rest has these unrealistic and kindergarten-like ambitions and still thinks that they have them too. A clean Earth, a caring economy, living in peaceful symbiosis with animals and plants, CO2-free energy and climate....and much more of all such daily naive talking, that is really something you usually even cannot sell anymore to some of the most clever pre-schoolers. Even they would immediately put you eye-opening questions quickly. lol

Posted in: 'Please drink' treated Fukushima water, China asks Aso See in context

They aren’t even really affected, located west of Japan with sea area between. They also don’t care about other things themselves,like contamination or pollution of air, affecting all surrounding countries, so you can’t sometimes healthily breath or dry your clothes outside if the winds come from China’s direction. That’s again only their pure CCP propaganda. And of course, nothing significant would happen if you drink a glass of that processed and again filtered water. lol You surely would get some more problems with yearly too many x-ray photographs or long distance flights and such.

Posted in: Japan has entered 4th wave of COVID-19 infections, says gov't panel chief See in context

And again, the daily dose of remarks that are bare of any logic or just ignorant.

1) If the PM cannot see any high numbers, how can it be then, that at any place, in this case Osaka, the bed occupancy rate stands over 90%? One could surely distribute all patients in such a case so that the rate would still be everywhere single digit, but that isn’t done, because also at other places the rate is already high, right?

2) Some here suggest, rapid mass vaccinations are the one and only solution to come out of the pandemic. It’s neither the only solution for anything, nor it is a solution itself. Many other countries with more progressed mass vaccinations have still high or even rising numbers, for example. Or another, there are even again senior residences with already all inhabitants vaccinated twice and another massive infection outbreak, making not only there everyone unsure of everything.

In other words, you cannot prove your ‘theories’ at all and most things practically done are still more than questionable right from the beginning.

Posted in: Do you think that once the pandemic ends and travel resumes, there will be strong international demand for tourism to Japan? See in context

What exactly is it, that made you suggesting that this pandemic ends? Too much after work beer, drugs, hallucinations? Just forget it. The last rudiments of tourism will lead the people there, where are lesser restrictions or infections. That can be anywhere, with then currently low rates at that specific destination, and a month later it is somewhere else.

Are you sure, @klausdorth? Some thousand athletes, trainers, medical staff, media from around the world, that alone surely means quite an imported virus load, not even considered higher inner-Japanese activities around all those places and accommodations. Those ‘helping hands’ also spread it further afterwards into every direction, especially in many ‘yoru-no-machi’, if you know what is meant. lol That’s for sure.

Unbelievable. It’s absolutely not about those games, safe or not so safe. It’s about many people more get infected and dead after the games, because of massively imported virus loads and new variants of concern and the accompanying exponential infection raise!

Posted in: Mother given suspended sentence for burying baby’s body outside home See in context

It’s probably only weighing the options. With that suspended sentence they can have potentially another child or children, have to care themselves for the other child, can continue their work, estimated some agricultural or so. If you put both into prison, the opposite will happen. That family is destroyed, no more children for the aging society, the public has to care about the other child, that also having no real future then etc. and in general less people working there in that estimated rural area with aged people and severe fluctuations. There is soon no other way to decide for all courts in general, letting more and more people getting through with bad things. That’s something to get used to.

Posted in: Narita airport starts facial recognition trial for faster travel See in context

That won’t work, because facial recognition as part of AI is continuously training and learning itself and then in this case develops some kind of bias, to say it in diplomatic words. lol In other words, it doesn’t work well when still almost untrained and without bias, but it also doesn’t work well when almost fully trained and then having the biases developed.

Posted in: Starbucks Japan’s Chai Chocolate Frappuccino requires a whole new ordering system See in context

The problem I always have, it is impossible or very difficult in almost every store, not only at StaBu, just to buy a normal or plain thing with its original or traditional taste. I mean, you won’t find easily a coffee that only contains good coffee and you also never will find for instance a simple bread with nothing in it, just only the tasty healthy bread, so that I can put in or on it what I want, not what the store thinks I could probably want because they think it’s their best idea and design ever. lol Although they sell everything in much more varieties than in other countries, what is of course surely very impressive, but finally it’s not helpful at all if the plain variants are merely unavailable.

Dumping that water is the lowest risk choice of the choices available.

No, it is by far not, as just doing nothing but waiting until the containing tanks slowly rust or burst one by one in a much farther away and distributed over a greater time span would have been the choice of lowest risk.

Posted in: Gov't decides to release water from Fukushima nuclear plant into sea in 2023 See in context

I don’t understand the necessity to intentionally speed up that process. It is ‘safer’ and more time distributed if they would wait until the containers rust or burst in many years later and only a few liters of one container after the next flow into the sea then. Of course the very final result is the same, but it is more thinned on a time scale. And if the space there is not sufficient, why not build the next container ‘village’ at another neighboring site and pump the treated radioactive water there?
