Looks quite good to me. Anything with matcha and whipped cream sounds good.

What many fail to recognize is that the accuracy of the PCR test itself is dubious. As has been reported elsewhere, it is prone to a significant percentage of false positive results and has been identified by the creators of the test as NOT a reliable diagnostic tool.
An Austrian Parliament Member showed that Coca Cola soda can make a COVID test positive. Also, the Tanzanian President show that a papaya can make a COVID test positive. So, there's that.

I would like to see the scientific proof that if humans decrease their C02 emissions substantially, then global temperatures will lower, natural disasters will lessen, and world will be at peace with the climate. Historically, the CO2 levels have been much higher than they are today and humans were not around burning fossil fuels.
I am not against protecting the environment, but not sure why the emphasis is on the global warming aspect and not focused on the pollution (air quality, toxic chemical, sewage, garbage) that has been proven to be immediately harmful to humans.

It is reported by NTD news that CCP officials are taking the US made vaccines and administering the CCP made vaccine to Chinese citizens. Because of that, it is a hard pass on the CCP vaccines.

It says a lot when Chinese nationals that escaped the clutches of the Chinese Communist Party support Trump. They have lived and experience communism. Also, it is not just Chinese from the CCP that support Trump, many people that came from other communist regimes also support Trump and know the stark difference between communism and capitalism.

They are going to just have the Olympics online through Zoom.

Obviously, the returns numbers are going to much higher because the volume of online shopping increased dramatically during the pandemic shutdowns. However, the online companies reaped big time profits as well. Amazon and Walmart up 50 to 60% from the year prior during the pandemic, so big time benefits being an online retailer during pandemic shutdowns.

Extremely low unemployment rates in Japan that have not changed much in the pandemic. The US unemployment rate hit 14.7% in May 2020. All created by the severe shutdown orders.

Not surprising. Influenza and cold infections always rise in the winter time. Covid is a coronavirus transmitted the same way as Influenza coronavirus.

Japan's economy might improve under Biden, but the US economy will likely decline under Biden. Biden has so many poor economic policies planned for the US.

@Luddite Many cast and crew are expected to stay in social bubbles to prevent contact with the virus. The current series of I’m A Celebrity is almost finished in the U.K., contestants had to isolate for two weeks and were tested before being allowed to take part.
It is a ridiculous premise to say that those in those circles are protected and in some sort of bubble. They can't control 100% of everything around them. Someone could get infected in the cab, rental car, hotel room, using the bathroom, convenience store, etc, etc. They are around tons of people who have also been around tons of people. Hollywood can't expect to be more protected than any of the general public taking the same precautions. The reality is that Hollywood is allowed a different set of rules because they have more power and more money is involved to be above the rules and regulations.
Another example is Tesla. Tesla threatened Alameda county in California to move its manufacturing plant to Texas if county officials didn't allow them to open their manufacturing plant. Sure enough, they let Tesla open. I respect Musk for calling them out on their shutdowns, but it just shows that there are different set of rules to different entities and the difference is how much money is involved.

overall it is unacceptable for a country like Japan to have less than 2000 beds and not even able to serve those beds and patients, or not wanting too.
You numbers are not correct. Japan is #1 in the world for amount of hospital beds per capita. Japan has 1.53 million hospital beds. 1212 hospital beds per 100,000 people.

Here are some sobering facts. In 2020, more than 17K people in Japan committed suicide, while fewer than 2,000 people in Japan have died of COVID-19. The shutdowns seem to be doing more harm than good. Food for thought.

weather does not effect the Covid-19 virus so no one can blame oh it’s getting colder.
Cold weather can adversely people's immune systems, so they are more susceptible to colds, flu, or covid19. Cold and flu cases always rise in the colder months.

It is the start of the cold and flu (influenza) season where colds and flu cases always rise. Covid19 and influenza are both coronaviruses, so nothing surprising here.

But nobody has a problem with the experts and leaders not following their own recommendations or orders?
@Raw Beer, Exactly, it shows they don't believe in their own orders. Makes you really wonder what is going on behind the curtain.

It is difficult to respect the medical experts and agencies (CDC, WHO), when they changed their guidance on whether to wear a mask or not so many times. Literally around 3-4 times or more. It is good that Japan Today listed some of the medical experts changing their narratives, but I assure you there are several more examples of this.

Still so bad for Japan. Japan was really dealt some bad cards after putting so much money into the pot to host the Olympics.

It is not the amount of cases, but how severe the cases and if hospitals are getting overwhelmed. WHO has said they estimate that 10% of the world has been infected with CV19. So, that would mean 780 million cases with 1.4 million deaths. That is a 99.82% survival rate similar to the influenza survival rate.

Sounds like you read the book "The Expendables - How the middle class got screwed by Globalisation" by Jeff Rubin. Recommend it to other posters on this subject.
Agree with @JeffLee and @mazzda
I have seen it happen firsthand in last several decades living in the US. Countless industries outsource tens of millions of middle class jobs abroad in the US. Not sure why so many people support globalism when it really only benefits a select few of global companies.

The biggest global benefactor from the move to wind and solar power has been China.
In last decade, China, India, Middle East, and most of the rest of the world have increasing CO2 emissions. It will take a long time for those areas to substantially decrease their CO2 emissions.
US and EU have decreasing CO2 emissions the past decade. Japan has been flat the past decade.

"The Dems politicized it - not me. Gov Cuomo of NY was at it again yesterday."
I totally agree. So many Democrat politicians said they wouldn't take the vaccine or advise people to take it if Trump endorsed it. Now, Cuomo said that he thinks Trump should not be the one distributing it and says that Biden/Harris should be the one's distributing the "same exact vaccine." So, the vaccine would be more effective if Biden/Harris distribute it? Lol. It doesn't matter who distributes it as long as it is effective and helps the people.
Also, the same Democrat politicians blocked hydroxychloroquine from being prescribed in many states six months ago. It could have possibly helped many people as treatment or prophylaxis in last six months. Instead they pushed Remdesivir that has basically same results as HCQ. Democrats just kept saying HCQ was dangerous, However, on the CDC website, it says that HCQ being used as a malaria prophylaxis is safe for pregnant women in all trimesters which is extremely rare for any medication to be safe for pregnant women.

Out of curiosity, I looked up the price of a private Boeing 777 charter flight. The cost listed was $23,000/hour and I think that is the low budget plane. The price for the flight has to be around $350K. I guess that is just pocket change if you have 780 million.

@Peter Neil American companies sent manufacturing to China and other countries to reduce their costs by 90% and are responsible for abandoning American workers. "Clinton" didn't do it.
Government policy is what can take down or put up all the boundaries. Clinton got China into the World Trade Organization (WTO) which opened up the floodgates for US and world businesses to do business in China. Clinton was one of key players in creating a massive exodus of US outsourcing to China.
Here is a couple of articles on the subject from Wall Street Journal and The Atlantic.
