All of the current vaccines are largely untested, but it is only the AZ one which is coming under the microscope? Why?

As an athlete she has little to worry from the infection, but as a cancer survivor she knows that for patients currently under treatment the virus can mean certain death.
That's her choice to make, I guess.

Do the Oscar panel weigh up this privilege when deciding which 'minority' group to award to this year?
Of course. It’s where the wealthy and connected all high-five each other irrespective of race.
Money has always basis main stage for discrimination; race is just a dog and pony show.

I am sure any decisions she has made have been taken in consultation with healthcare experts.

This one is on the contractors who were most certainly not following correct procedures. However, if this sort of negligence is systemic, then the transport minister will have some explaining to do.

You’d think with all the keibiin around flapping their flags in semaphore or jabbing their light sabres, this sort of thing would not happen. Unfortunately both the driver and the woman exhibited poor situational awareness, and this is the result. Still, the onus was in the driver to ensure the way was clear before proceeding.

How are the PCRs conducted in Japan? Oral? Nasal? Or do they call in the rectum inspector like the Chinese?

Why are some people intent on making every issue into radical right and left?
There is nothing radical about it let alone left or right.
In today’s postmodern world there is a school of thought which denies absolutes, be they moral or based in scientific fact. In fact, the more “common sense” a belief is, the more likely it is to be challenged. This school of thought is known as “Cultural Marxism” and pervades academic thought from contemporaries in gender theory suck as Judith Butler through Foucault, Althusser, the Frankfurt School, Gramsci, and even Saussure’s theories are of signs (though he was no Marxist).
Much political theory, including gender theory, is steeped in the dogma of the political left.

The bullying of this little boy stems from the narrow mindedness that other kids have been taught from their parents. . “He’s wearing feminine clothes, so I feel threatened and have a right to bully him.”
No. That’s just you projecting onto others.

Nursery schools and kindergartens in Japan are struggling to teach preschoolers about sexual minorities, a challenge highlighted by the case of a 6-year-old boy who stopped attending a nursery after being bullied for dressing in girl's clothing.
And who dressed the boy before he left the house? Quite clearly, this boy is a victim of activist parents pushing an agenda at the expense of the wellbeing of their child.
Cf. Greta Thunberg.

Could Sony then be accused of theft ?
That is an interesting point. Do we actually own software in perpetuity these days, or do we simply own a licence to use it - one which can be revoked at any point? Owning physical media may not be the solution because of that “phones home” and the server does not respond, you are potentially in the same situation.
Bad news for retro and second hand gaming, but maybe that’s the point. It stinks.

why should they be an exception while all other businesses have to adhere to these new inconvenient regulations?
Because such musicians are usually white, upper-middle class, and extremely entitled. That’s why.

This is nothing new at all. Seems that most of the posters here are too young to remember, or never used the yellow International Certificates of Vaccination book.
Quite so. I had one of those yellow books when I was a nipper and Papa Bungle took the family with him to the Middle East.
It will, however, be a first if we need to show the passport domestically.
