Posted in: Meghan accuses Buckingham Palace of 'perpetuating falsehoods' See in context

Meghan is finding out that you can’t have your cake and eat it. She cut ties with the Royal Family supposedly in part because she wanted a more free, less invasive life, yet she seems to crave the attention, wealth and power that marrying a Prince gave her even more than ever.

And she seems to have a lot of problems with her own family, friends, and now her in-laws..

Posted in: Fly me to the moon: Billionaire Maezawa seeks 8 passengers for lunar trip See in context

This is great news, if he can start a trend on Twitter of journeys to the moon it will depopulate not just the mature cities like Tokyo and Barcelona in great need of space but hopefully also cities like Lagos who are projected to have a population bigger than Shanghai in 2031. However, It’s all well and good people travelling to the moon but we need start up projects in agriculture to make it susutainable.

Who can’t love this action? The magic number 6, a number the virus, and i , and you, all recognise as anti-viral in the world of science and logic

Posted in: Preservation of 2011 quake devastation sites faces funding crunch See in context

disaster museums and memorials are pretty depressing things, if this really is a case of lack of funding, then it is probably ok to get rid of a few. It won’t stop schools and the government educating the people about disaster preparedness.

Posted in: Kono warns of slower pace of COVID vaccine shots for elderly after supply delay See in context

At the end of the day nothing has changed. Once Summer comes, the whole population can kick back and get on the recovery path, I feel like the rest is just easing people into that idea.

What an incredible player she is. It’s always exciting when a fresh talent comes in and knocks the old guard off their perch. Well done Naomi.

Posted in: Japanese companies shun blanket wage hikes amid coronavirus pain See in context

Obviously makes sense. Employee income has always reflected the health of the companies, which are doing terribly this year, lots of them, not all of course. And the employee can hit the road if they don’t like it.

Yeah, but what if the Republicans get back in four years later and reverse it all again? Biden should realize that any return in trust in America is going to take at least a decade.

Great. The Olympics should go ahead, and life needs to resume back to normal as soon as possible after that. People have become understandably sluggish and the message now is that we are moving forward past this.
