She is not wearing her mask and a lot of people in the crowd are not wearing them or wearing them incorrectly. According to all the COVID mask propaganda-ists, she and the others are endangering lives.

I like the unwritten etiquette escalator rules in Japan where people stand either on right or left to allow people to walk up/down if they are in a hurray. Makes perfect sense. It just is funny how Kansai escalator etiquette rules have people stand on the right-side while everywhere else in Japan is left-side.

Have you been to China? I am Chinese/Japanese and have spent plenty of time in China. CCP absolutely has the ability to hide the what is going on in China from the outside world. CCP uses aggressive tactics to silence dissent, criticism, or whistleblowers. Take for instance, Li Wenliang: the Wuhan coronavirus whistleblower. He was arrested and was forced to say his comments about the coronavirus were false. That has happened countless times.
On top of that, CCP is able to block everything from the outside world to Chinese citizens via the Great Firewall and use only state controlled news to Chinese citizens. On top of that, You should try researching and reading articles other than extremely liberal media sources like CNN, Huffpost, and NY Times.

"Pride House Tokyo -- a community hub for LGBTQ people officially recognized as part of the Olympic program -- published an open letter this week calling for organizers to take concrete steps to ensure discriminatory comments do not occur again."
And vice versa. The LGBTQ community says a lot of discriminatory comments about the Christian community as well. I really think that LGBTQ community should be just treated like a religion. Different religious people do not force their religious views on others and just go to their churches and assemblies to be with their like-minded individuals. The LGBTQ community should do the same because there are a lot of deep-seated morals and values that many do not agree with.

And hence why China has managed to get this pandemic under control. There is no way in hell a pandemic can ravage the country without anyone outside the country knowing about it. Only a country like North Korea can keep that sort of news from spreading. With freedom and liberty comes responsibility - something we haven't seen in many western countries.
Wow, you really think China did a great job handling the pandemic and actually believe their numbers?? You are really misinformed to say the least.
FYI: According to the data, China has only 89K cases for 1.4 billion people and been in the 80 thousands cases for about a year since Feb 2020. That is only 62 cases per million people. Deaths have been the same at 4600 since April 2020, which is 3 deaths per million people. That would mean they are outperforming countries like S. Korea, Japan, New Zealand, and Australia by several thousand percent.
You should watch NTD News (New Tang Dynasty News) owned by Chinese. You will see a glimpse of what is really going on in China. They have the most insider information on China and have facts/documents/video/whistleblowers to prove their articles not hearsay. Communist China has very little in freedom and liberty.

China is the last place you want to be during the pandemic. The authoritarian tactics used are inhumane. All for a similar survival rate as the flu about 99.98% according to CDC.

I'm sure the food will be pretty good and room nice and clean, but tiny. However, this article created more questions for me. Lol.
No public transportation. So are you supposed to walk to your next destination in a hazmat suit?
How is Olympic village a bubble? Impossible to keep non-virus bubble. Staff will be coming and going all the time.
What about foreigners that are not competing in Olympics? What is the protocol.

For the 4,999,999th time, you cannot speak free of consequences when you hurt actual people and deprive them of the right to be treated as equals. Is that so difficult to understand? Looks like I have seen too many deplorables posting around here.
So, you cannot be critical of anybody without looking at them as unequal? I just want to understand the unwritten rules.

Yeah, he is 83 years old, but if he was doing a very good job with what he was hired for, I don't see any reason for him to resign. It is amazing how his entire career is reduced to a few unpopular comments. He did make a public apology.

Every person, politician, celebrity, professional athlete, high profile figure, etc has said some things that were not popular and they regret. Some are just more public than others. If you say you haven't, you are lying. He apologized, so move on.

What science? All the science is a gray area. There are no absolute black and white facts on how COVID19 is transmitted. I'm in the US and all the shutdowns and COVID19 regulations are very contradictory and do not make sense.

I'm sure they were just there inspecting the hostess bars to see if they were following COVID guidelines. Haha.

Surprising that the open workspace is more popular in Japan when a lot of social customs in Japanese culture is based on not disturbing others like not talking on cell phones in trains or buses, women-only train cars, women-only floors in hotels, restaurants with dividers like Ichiran, smoking zones, etc. to avoid any disturbances or conflicts. I don't think there is anything wrong with partisans and cubicles in the workplace to help keep the peace when spending immense amounts of time at work.

Just stop bringing unqualified foreing workers from poor countries..
The Japanese are enough for japan's work force..
Japan's influx of foreign workers is tiny compared to the US problem. This is what many US citizens want and what Trump was trying to do. Most developed countries give priority to their citizens.

Great to see Brady win with Tampa Bay, go to the Super Bowl, and silence the critics, but how the heck are high contact sports with no masks allowed to play football, basketball, and soccer? The arbitrary and conflicting COVID rules are getting ridiculous.

he or she should've figured out how to wear glasses over the top of the mask by now.
Glasses still fog up with the glasses over the mask. It just fogs up the inside. Difficult to take a test when you can't see the test. I'd like to hear the person's side of the story in order to get the full story.

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.

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.
