JAPAN picked her when she started winning. I was watching her for two years before she won anything. Never heard a peep out of any Japanese person. Not my co-workers or friends. Why should she have to change for them?
they started caring about her cause she choosed japanese passport (in order to play Davis Cup and going to Olympic games).
I speak japanese better than her, enough said... (and my japanese is a little more than basic)
She was the one who turned on the olympic flame, she didn't deserve at all.
And of course, she supports blm, shame of her

The truth is vaccine at this stage is still experimental, it takes 3 years of study to be approved.
Currently who gets a shot just makes part of this experimental part.

Maybe you've not heard, but there's a hell of a lot more people in hospital or dead around the world due to covid.
excuse me, can you provide me with some data ?
cause if I check online I just see that less than 4,5 million people on planet Earth died for Corona, are those numbers "a hell of lot people" ? not considering that 7,6 Billion, not million, people are living on planet Earth.
do the math to see the 0,00...% of people died by the virus
Get vaccinated people.
-13 ( +2 / -15 )
Wow. That is nice!
Very big progress!
Hopefully end of the year we reach 80% and can start to go back to our normal life.
which normal life ? Already Delta variant infects who got a shot, then in Autumn they are already talking about Lamba variant, this story will never end, human beings becoming like a PC where you have to update your antivirus (take a vaccin) every year
Stop this "let's return to normal life" thing, we will never return like 2019 or before

The LDP is too stingy when it comes to doling out money to anyone but themselves,cronies and corporate partners; but what about a 100 dollar (10,000 yen) gift for getting vaccinated like in the US? The young people can get their shot then have a night on the town. Economic stimulus.
with locals closing at 20:00 I would hardly say "a night on the town"

I'm sure China has already claimed it and is getting the dredges ready,
don't worry, if they find oil over there you can be 100% sure the USA will send some troops

Tokyo and many other parts of the country are under virus state of emergency, and only around a third of the country is fully vaccinated as the Delta variant fuels surging infections.
so why I have to get vaccinated if I can get Delta variant ?

If a piece of paper in English can maybe make it easier to cross borders, then why not? I have not been back to my own country and I have not seen my beloved children for approaching two years.
(The vaccination itself is no big deal and I feel absolutely no different after receiving two. I continue to double-mask in public. By the same token I know that I can still catch this thing depending on the circumstances.)
why not ? cause it's a discrimination
the vaccine is not mandatory and anyone can choose to take the shot or not, with the vaccine passport you are forced to take the vaccine if you want to come back to your country and visit your relatives.
(The vaccination itself is a big deal, if you check carefully on the internet, and I feel very well without it. I continue to go out without a mask. By the same token I know that I can still catch this thing in the same way I could have caught influenza in the previous years).

vaccine passports are the most discriminating thing made in the last 60 years

great, go to travel and spread the variants, cause that's what the vaccines are doing, creating variants, then new vaccines will put on market then new variants will appear and so on, McAffee and pc viruses showed the way.
-5 ( +0 / -5 )
the rising in numbers is due to Delta variation
current vaccines don't protect from Delta variation (neither will do from Epsilon, Beta, Gamma, Theta and so on)
vaccination is pointless, variations are coming out because the vaccines force the virus to a mutation and so now we have Delta, Epsilon and start learning the Greek alphabet

To note, the Phenonix Suns have one player in the finals and the Millwakee Bucks have 2. After finishing their game 7 (great series by the way) the players will fly out to Japan and have maybe 3 days and 1 full practice with Team USA before it’s game against France….not the best for recovery or health.
Bucks in 6 ;)

Love all those sports but don't think they belong in the Olympics. Sports inflation is one reason the cost of hosting the Games has skyrocketed. Clean house: eliminate all sports that were not in the, say, '32 Olympics.
why not in 1896 at this point ? lol

criticizing snowboard to be a sport when biathlon is part of the winter olympics, compare who goes skiing and shooting targets on weekends with who takes a board and go down a hill, which is the more popular actually ?

so if I don't get vaccine I am forced to live here forever, I can't visit my family, I can't visit my wife's family.
It's an open air jail and people looks like is happy for this, the most unconstitutional thing ever made by every state, human beings have lost their freedom of travel.

CCP propaganda piece. China needs to come clean on Covid19 's origins and the role of the WIV.
you should check dr. Fauci connection with Wuhan laboratory
and dr. Fauci is not a communist chinese but a citizen of united states of america
-4 ( +1 / -5 )
That's correct. The CCP replaced "communism" with "nationalism" to keep the populace together. And being that China is a socialist state, they have become National Socialists. In other words, Nazis.
a country is communist or socialist, another example of clearly ideas about communism....

Apparently Eisen is unfamiliar with China or even a single Chinese national.
if you think soviet union communism (or actual north korea communism) is the same as Xiping communism, well, you are clearly confused about communism

So he jumps on a plane 'in a pandemic' and travels across the ocean to another massive city full of people completely exposing himself to the virus all along the way...
Then he goes back the other way again potentially bringing in new 'variants' because the vaccines don't stop transmission.
Well done, dude. Really smart move instead of waiting a few weeks in your apartment where you're in all likelihood working from home as a programmer while you order shopping online

Yeah, the place has a reputation. But you are not making friends if you are in a pub and talk about ださいたま and it turns out your neighbour is from there.
surely is better (and safer) than walking in Roppongi or Kabukicho

I assume the picture on the front page today contains a sign saying something about a vaccination center. Would it have been so difficult to have the the words "Vaccination Center" written on it so at least those folks who do not read Japanese know they are in the right place?
the picture is so easy to be understood :
first line, something in Tokyo
second line, there is something big related to a center
go straight for the acceptance

English is the de-facto business language of the world, but nobody can speak it here, especially all the zombies that work in the city halls, and immigration departments.
another great example of arrogance
you can back to your country if you dont like all those "zombies that work in the city halls"
