Headline says "Canberra" but then includes a photo that appears to be Melbourne, not Canberra.

Posted in: Shots give COVID-19 survivors big immune boost, studies show See in context

That simply is not possible with respiratory viruses. They are different from just about every other type of disease, which is why no vaccine has ever been able to eradicate respiratory viruses compared to the smallpox virus which had no animal origin.

We haven't even managed to develop a vaccine for the common cold.

The word is “hunger”

No, "hanker" is just fine.

Posted in: Sayonara Tokyo, bonjour Paris: Summer Olympic focus switches to 2024 See in context

paris should have been made to wait until 2028 so the Tokyo games could be rescheduled to 2024. But the french didn't want to wait and we see what happened. So I can't celebrate the paris olympics.

Dina Averina was robbed and anyone who is familiar with rhythmic gymnastics understands this

Dina's routines were pretty dull and same-y, though technically good. Linoy's routines were far more interesting to watch.

Posted in: Counting the coronavirus cost at Tokyo Olympics See in context

The people, namely the top poster, who are crowing about how successful these Olympics were because there weren’t any major disasters are missing large several points. The cost of these Games far exceeds whatever “hope” they may have brought to the world and I am not just talking about the $14.5 billion estimated by Yahoo sports. A significant part of Japanese society feels abandoned. Tohoku was flat out lied to. The average citizen was told to stay home and sacrifice while the elite swine partied. Good luck getting the public to ever sacrifice again for the common good. I predict you will see some serious cases a civil disobedience…and good for them…followed by some serious pushback if the government tried to reign people in.

Exactly, What is worse, the average Japanese citizen will now have to pay for said elite swine's party, for years to come.

I don’t think many people would call this even close to a good party.

Especially as you, the home owner, aren't even allowed to attend the party but still have to pay for all of it.

Posted in: Fans to be banned from Olympic events in Tokyo, 3 neighboring prefectures See in context

Either the virus is dangerous and so there should have been NO sporting events over the last few months, or it is more like the flu in terms of casualties and sporting events, including the Olympics, should go ahead WITH fans (otherwise, there's very little point and the whole thing should have been cancelled). This whole debacle was not even Japan's fault (the virus didn't originate from Japan) and yet Japanese citizens have to pick up almost the entire tab for zero benefits, now not even being able to attend their own games. What an insult! Why was it not possible to simply put the whole schedule back one cycle? Why couldn't Paris and LA be made to wait a while longer as well, instead of ONLY Japan having to suffer for something it didn't cause? It almost goes without saying that the next winter games should be cancelled immediately and a new host found.

Posted in: What's your situation concerning vaccination against the coronavirus? See in context

I am very interested in getting vaccinated with a well-studied vaccine, which is proven to have minimal short- and long-time side effects.

Me too.

What's the point? The babies are just going to end up as the objects of one of china's nefarious 'claims'. Japan should stop falling for this 'panda diplomacy'.

More woke propaganda, no doubt at the behest of detestable ceo joyce who has a habit of using his bully pulpit to push his personal ideology, threatening that those who don't agree with him will be shut out of everyday society. I will never fly qantas while this nasty little corporate dictator is at the helm.

@Goodlucktoyou, and so they should cancel next year's winter games, considering where this whole virus/pandemic mess started.

Posted in: Semenya fails in latest bid to qualify for Tokyo Olympics See in context

Genetically, a woman is someone whose cells have two x chromosomes, while males have one x and one y. Semenya has one x and one y chromosome and so should compete with those who also have one x and one y. Anything else is manifestly unfair to women, who do not have the y chromosome and all the physical advantages that come with that.
