Posted in: Nadal, Osaka both out of Wimbledon; she'll go to Olympics See in context

Tennis shouldn't be an Olympic sport anyway. Like golf, soccer and baseball, it already has its own huge global profile and premier tournaments. Also, you can tell the players don't value a gold medal as highly as they do winning a GS event, so it's just a "nice to have" award and a chance to cosplay and Larp at the opening and closing ceremonies for them.

Excellent news, she needs more time off to recover properly! I recommend she takes the whole year off, and possibly next year too, just to be on the safe side. Then, a proper medical and psychiatric review in 2023 to see if she is fit and well enough to return to the tour.

The Chinese have the sense to keep a tight rein on the media, unlike the West whose media is largely owned and controlled by a certain group of people.

Whatever you think of the CCP, it takes balls of steel to sit in a rocket and blast off into space like that, knowing that if anyone of a myriad tiny things go wrong you'll be dead.

Posted in: Why doesn't Father's Day carry the same importance as Mother's Day? Or does it? See in context

Both mother's Day and father's day should be eliminated.

When my children were young the schools would have mother's day events tell the children to make something or write something for their mother.

Well my children's mother walked out on them long before they reached school age and others lost their mothers to other things.

So everyone else should be made miserable because of your personal misfortune?

Good to see all that freely-donated American military equipment being put to use by Israel. The American taxpayer is a very generous creature.

I don't know why Japanese firms continue to seek foreign investors ?? They should just do on there own if they are not willing to share power! You can't have it both ways, you either stand alone and stay local, or get foreign funds and share power.

Make up your mind.

Lol, that's been Japan's basic dilemma since St. Francis Xavier showed up in the 16th century

Yeah, sounds like a great idea, what could possibly go wrong with such a set up in a culture known for it's lack of hiearchy, decentralization and love of challenging authority.

AttilathehungryToday 10:42 am JST

I don't really understand the hysteria about the unvaccinated. If you want the vaccine, great! Go get it, then you are protected. Why do you then continue to castigate those who choose not to? It has nothing to do with you if you have had the jab.

Because deep down they are scared about what they have allowed to be put into their bodies, and therefore to help ease their anxiety they want everyone else to do the same.
