Search online and you will discover an excellent AP News article by reporter David Klepper, back from February 7th last year, entitled "Cyborgs, trolls and bots: A guide to online misinformation." VERY useful if you want to read comments and still hold down your breakfast.  Of particular note: bots and cyborgs. Last quote in the article is appropriate: "“The only solution,” Ferrara said, “is education.”" 

It's all about critical thinking. Your opinions really do matter; to your friends and family, as well as your community. Don't surrender them too easily without a struggle.

Nope. Is there a correlation?

Very sad - an actor in her prime.

I wonder how a Japanese remake would go down. A 1920s Yakuza drama would be good fun.

Any country in Europe. And then we have America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Mexico, Brazil, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Israel..

There are alot. But you continue enjoying your sophisticated fantasy world of matcha and some squashed red bean gourmet nonsense.

K_A.. Maybe you missed this line...?

For the full year, China eked out 2.3% growth, becoming the only major economy to expand while United States, Europe and Japan struggled with renewed disease outbreaks.

So a 2.3% growth, not great but much better than most other countries.

Well, please mention a better country than Japan.

Really? Let's turn it back on you. Name a country Japan is better than, and explain why?

Bagels are just boiled for about one minute on each side and then allowed to dry before baking. Making bagels is no more difficult than baking bread.

I can understand and empathise. Since my cancer op, I need to plan my outings having some idea where I can locate disabled toilets. Most I find are good and usually very clean. In a single day, I require them several times.

Bagels are boilied in water, not oil. That was a mistype. Got distracted typing while watching the old Hotel Drama with Ippei. He is cute..

They are baked after boiling. Seems easy but rather quite technical.

@Zichi: Thanks for the up and up on where you get your flour. We appreciate it.

I have sympathy for the disabled and understand the smart ticket gate problem, but that does not mean they are completely justified in everything they say.

Time wasted trying to find the elevator in an unfamiliar station? Wouldn't that be a one-time thing only? Is it the station's fault if I go out of the wrong exit for where I'm going?

We are going to have to disagree with you on that blv.

And what is with the problem with your TPS report cover sheets? Didn't you get the memo?

@Skipp

sorry to hear of your health problems after Covid. Actually I never said it is only the obese, rather that there will not be the crisis in Japan from Covid as the country is in better health overall and the obese rate is very low. It’s sad that you and others are still feeling effects but we must also take into account the risks involved in going out daily etc. For me the risks are minimal and worth taking rather than staying cooped indoors. BTW, my partner and I both had Covid last April and luckily recovered after a few day with no long lasting symptoms.

I post what I am doing during the day the give my account of how life is on a daily basis on the streets, so to speak. Reading my posts is not compulsory.

I live in hyogo so things are not looking so good in Nishinomiya and Amagasaki.

Yeh, same number of tests as in January yet 200 more people infected in Hyogo. At this rate they should be thinking about shutting down schools like last year. Instead our idiot governor is spending our tax money on paper fans.

I don't know when Covid-19 will end, but at the party I will have when happens, I certainly will not be limiting the number of guests, banning people from overseas, telling everyone to wear masks, and having hand sanitizer and temperature checks on the way in.

That is not my idea of a "celebration" of "victory" over Covid.

Osaka 1161 cases according to another website.

I live in hyogo so things are not looking so good in Nishinomiya and Amagasaki.

The numbers without the number of tests don't tell the real story. Go figure out

Osaka is carrying out 17,000 test while Tokyo is doing 7,000. It is unbelievable

that even the media don't seem to think Testing is a factor.

Two factors contributing to the rise in diabetes incidence are the aging population, and the survival for longer periods of already afflicted individuals due to better treatments. People who previously would have died are now living, and being counted toward the total number with diabetes. Of course, these two factors alone do not account for all the reasons for the rise in numbers of diabetics.

Japan, please senf off those numerous economic migrants.

Flying a plane which ticket surely cost way more than closer countries (China) is 100% to take advantage from Japan.

Follow rules, that is how a civilization remain civilized.

Europe is falling apart in most large and medium cities. Paris is now a huge wasteland in its Northeast area like favelas.

Japan is laeeady crippled with debts. More immigrants, more taxes. No end.

The one and something percent are the real refugees.

and yet the Chinese love them - deep-fried cockroach-cluster with a side-order of bat-wings anyone ?

Actually there is a species of cockroach used in traditional Chinese herbal medication for treatment of joint inflammation. I've seen them for sale in pharmacies there.
