The meaning of calling on corporate clients is to visit their office and meet them face to face. It's not a video call.

Posted in: Japanese sit more than anyone else, to the point it undermines their health See in context

I guess that explains why Japan has the highest life expectancy in the world.

Completely wrong observation. I have read many studies about the negative health affects of sitting, the science is clear.

What you should be wondering is how much LONGER Japan's life expectancy would be if they didn't sit so much.

So "rude health" health means good health? Or is that a typo?

Before the start of these Olympics, China complained that the diplomatic boycott was political, and that politics had no place in the Olympics. Now China BOCOG is making political statements in an Olympic press conference. Does China not understand the concept of hypocrite?

Posted in: Bach admits 'sleepless nights' over troubled Tokyo Olympics See in context

TOKYO — The chief of the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee on Tuesday did not rule out canceling the Olympics if COVID-19 cases spiked, as more athletes tested positive for the virus and sponsors ditched plans to attend Friday's opening ceremony.

Asked at a news conference if the global sporting showpiece might still be canceled, Toshiro Muto said he would keep an eye on infection numbers and liaise with other organizers if necessary.

"We will continue discussions if there is a spike in cases," said Muto.

"We have agreed that based on the coronavirus situation, we will convene five-party talks again. At this point, the coronavirus cases may rise or fall, so we will think about what we should do when the situation arises."

By Ju-min Park and Sakura Murakami, Reuters | Posted - July 20, 2021 at 8:32 a.m.

So which is it King Bach? No chance of cancellation and zero risk, or reality?

It appears that Bach has learned to lie just like a recently deposed/disgraced US leader.

Posted in: Japanese restaurant owner shot to death in Mexico See in context

We used to drive to visit a production plant in Tijuana regularly. Then after a Toshiba(?) executive was kidnapped, we could no longer drive all the way. At the border we had to switch to a van with darkened windows and a Mexican driver who knew the area better. Along the way I often saw law enforcement with machine guns at check points. Sad to see Tijuana go from bad to worse. Awesome Mexican people to work with in the plant though.

Posted in: Trump impeachment trial could begin on Inauguration Day See in context

“Like all of you, I was shocked and deeply saddened by the calamity at the Capitol last week"

And the lies continue. He was not shocked or saddened. Reports are that he looked on gleefully from the WH as the events unfolded, and he did nothing to stop it. WH staff wrote the speech and told him he had no choice but to read it in order to save his skin, so he read it begrudgingly. LOSER to the end.

Posted in: An isolated Trump faces looming impeachment threat See in context

I agree with impeachment and invoking the 25th amendment. And he should also be banned from ever running for office again-

Fourteenth Amendment Section 3

No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Posted in: Trump says he will not attend Biden's inauguration See in context

"A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20. My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power," Trump said in a short video.

However, the evidently reluctant concession, in which Trump failed to congratulate Biden or directly admit defeat, was too little, too late to calm outrage over his role in the Capitol invasion.

It's always easy to tell when Trump says something he doesn't believe, something someone else wrote for him. He read it like someone eating natto who hates natto. He read it because the Whitehouse staff told him he had sealed his own fate, that he had no choice. Then shortly after without a script he said something totally opposite revealing his true feelings.

He can't be gone soon enough.

Posted in: Lawmakers openly discuss ousting Trump, possible impeachment See in context

Absolutely shocking, but unfortunately not surprising. Since being impeached but then let off the hook by the Republicans, Trump had become more and more erratic. It was only a matter of time until he reached the point of no return. The Republicans who enabled him - Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz et all - were also complicit.

Posted in: Trump downplays Russia in first comments on cyberattack See in context

Once again, Trump evidently somehow knows more than the intelligence agencies who are the experts?? Trump is an idiot, moron, egomaniac, narcissist, lier, traitor, LOSER, etc etc etc.

He keeps proving over and over again why he is totally incompetent and dangerous to the U.S. and the world. He doesn't care about the U.S. And yet there are millions of misguided members of his cult who support him. Why?

Posted in: Electoral College makes it official: Biden won, Trump lost See in context

Trump wants the title of president, but he doesn't want the responsibilities of president. People he has sworn to protect are dying and suffering economically, while he sits by and does nothing.

Biden is acting more presidential than Trump ever has. I wish Trump would just leave now and let Biden take over.
