Posted in: New Zealand introduces climate change law for financial firms in world first See in context

While interesting, but this isn't exactly the big push to stop climate change that people in the thread thinks it's gonna be. Perhaps this will generate more data on the impacts of climate change but doesn't offer anything in terms of prevention. Is it the lack of data that we are missing or is it lack of action. You tell me.

Ex husband's son from a previous marriage can be referred as adopted? In any case weird story.

Posted in: Sports remain hostile territory for LGBTQ Americans See in context

bullying or insults – is a relatively common experience in sports: 36% of U.S. adults said they’d experienced some form of it. 

If most are bullying rather than insults than that sounds like the key problem. Some sports banter certainly can be construed as insults, whither it has a place in sports is debatable.

Posted in: Do you think the Tokyo Olympics, if they are held, will be a coronavirus super-spreader event? See in context

Don't think it's gonna be a super spreader anymore....

No foreigners... Limited audience... Athletes being tested before, during and after, most if not all will be vaccinated and getting the vip treatment (ie segregated for the most part). Proper precaution and limited capacity.... If you also factor in some people are out and about anyways, so I don't see it as a "superspreader"

Posted in: Do you think self-driving cars will take away the fun of being at the wheel of your vehicle? See in context

Driving isn't fun for me, and shouldn't really be a leisurely activity imo. Not to say you can't have enjoyment out of it, but the result is so much more important than the journey.

Sounds like it's a success. Anyone looking to be.a teacher sorta knew about those points right? So it was all good.

Admittedly I don't wash my hand like I am going to perform surgery before, after, and between meals or touching surfaces.

Problem isn't that they are changing it. It's their business and policies change, this is quite a minor policy.

I just think that someone gender neutral's idea of inclusivity isn't whither their gender could be interpreted as being included in a massive generic greeting blasted to who ever the heck happens to be there at a theme park.

Posted in: Do you agree with the decision not to allow spectators from overseas to attend the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games? See in context

While I agree that it doesn't make much sense to bar vaccinated foreigners from entering but allowing non vaccinated citizens to congregate and spread the virus.

But I feel the logistics and manpower of handling the isolation and what to do if they are positive / require medical assistance on a large scale seems like a nightmare. I don't believe many have gone that route yet (no isolation), and I don't think would work if you are expecting a large influx of travellers. And the contact tracing, Burden on the medical system, spike in cases all while the Olympics is going on.

Posted in: Why experts think we'll need to vaccinate children against COVID See in context

What data would show there isn't a need to vaccinate children? Less than .1 % of deaths being children? which is exactly what's stated in the article. Sure there's side effects, it affects you way before you die, it contribrutes to herd immunity the list goes on and on. But I thought we were going to trust the science, trust the data... What happened to that?

All I know is moderna would vaccinate 1billion people to save 0 lives.

Of course it's about the yen. Always found the pray in your stead packages hilarious. The transfer of sincerity is a lovely thing.

Posted in: California ethnic studies debate: Whose stories get told? See in context

I don't think it should be about whose stories are told at all. It should be a course about relativity, how we are different and not all the same. How our upbringing actually has a major impact on how we are today. It's about people of the same culture having similar up bringing and the resulting strengths and values. School curriculum is driven my lessons learned.

A course about linguistics doesn't teach you all languages but about the construct of languages.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic creative chief quits over derogatory remark about Naomi Watanabe See in context

Mis step on his part, but not that outrageous given the circumstances, it is advertising after all. One would think more wacky ideas has been proposed and shot down.

Watanabe's group may have been outraged and rightfully so but I don't necessarily agree with canceling him 1 year after the fact.

Posted in: JAL to let flight attendants choose fewer work hours with salary cuts See in context

Highly reasonable to make changes due to changes in demand. Both Jal / Ana likely fall under too big to fall so, the alternative is to tax you to keep paying their staff.

Posted in: 44-year-old man arrested for confining high school girl at his home See in context

The point is prevention. The one in the best position to keep yourself safe is yourself. Some level of personal responsibility, and understanding of risk as a result of your actions are more than fair expectation imo for a 17 year old. That's beyond the age of baby sitting and making the decisions for you.

Of course the 44 year old knows more and is likely going to be in the position to take advantage, and he bears more responsibility but that doesn't mean the girl is absolved of all responsibility in the absence of any details.

There's no way this is legal... You don't accidently make up sales for customers you don't have, this isn't you forgot to carry the 1 over.

The one most mad should be sharp since they were the ones lied to, but it clearly isn't even the case.

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

If there is a urgency to climate change, then policy needs to be implemented now rather than later.

If a significant consolidated change is needed, then it is logical that a policy that effects everyone is required.

If we all unevenly contribute to carbon emissions, then our individual reduction is likely going to be uneven.

With that said, I have yet to see any study on the impacts of the reduction in carbon emission from the airline industry as a result of the pandemic. That should be material to support the amount of effort or way ahead in someway.

Posted in: Hashimoto will not give Mori any official Tokyo Olympics role See in context

Perhaps what is said is just face saving. In the end results are what matters. Its like changing driver 80% along a race course with set start to finish. If the course isn't public information then whose to say changing the driver did anything.

Posted in: Researchers urge delay in administering Pfizer vaccine's second dose See in context

Don't like this at all, why does everyone think they are THE expert or scientist and have absolutely no concept of patience or liability. Pfizer is not going to back you on this regardless of your results or data.

Posted in: Girl wins suit against Osaka Prefecture over school telling her to dye hair black See in context

Assuming no spite, feels like her hair wasn't really brown. The ending would have been a little bit different if it was.

Looks like the only lesson the teachers were concerned about was conform. I wonder how the case is viewed from the education stand point.

Posted in: Ex-director sues Amnesty Japan for firing him over Japanese ability See in context

Communication is a critical part of one's duties, enough so that it's not enough to only convey proper meaning but proper articulation especially at the director level. It's not what you say, but how you say it. So if you don't know the language, it's not possible to fulfill such duties.

Posted in: Mori to resign over sexist comments; Kawabuchi, 84, tipped to replace him See in context

Imo the problem lies in the implication of what he said and his reaction when questioned about it. He made no attempt to clarify or be politically correct in the slightest and felt firmly safe in his position at the top.

Which obviously was not the case.
