Posted in: Cherry blossoms' early bloom due to climate change, say experts See in context

Because it is true? because people do wonder why trees are blooming earlier? because it does help making people aware human originated climate change is real and have consequences?

if people don't know all that by now they have been living on a different planet until today. Or historically the news fails to effectively inform

The article is recycling and compounding the same old fear-factor. I call such articles "click-bait".

Is it because when you don't like what the experts say you find easier to criticize the media?

Not arguing with the experts or blaming them at all. Can't criticise the experts for what the news reports. Nothing new to report really so why report it is all I am saying.

This report is just an extension of the doom discourse that the mass media thrusts upon us.

Next it will be the fear of heatstroke because of masks. Then the ~est on record, late fall, no snow, natural disasters increase etc.

Imagine if the news was "there is no news worth reporting so have a nice day."

Imagine..,

Traveling” is synonymous with “spreading.”

Went travelling with my Priscilla. Travelled the whole journey by private car, stayed in a rented chalet, cooked our own meals, masked up and social distanced when was necessary. Also we kept our hands immaculately clean too. So I would argue the validity of Kanta's generalisation. Uh-huh!!!

Was peer pressured to go for ramen. The condition being only if the place was quiet.

And quiet it was. So we ordered. On cue a senior walks in with a mask protecting the chin and sits right behind me in this empty restaurant! Knocks my chair with hers as she gets comfy.

Then a party of 4 genkii fifty somethings walk in, sit in the corner., order a few beers and start laughing and shouting!!

it was the most unpleasant bowl of ramen I have had. And that was Saturday before SoE ended. I hope I will survive and things don't spiral out of control.

Take care everyone and take care of your fellows.

Only way to get things back to as before, is get the population vaccinated. That is quite obvious. So I can't see why the vaccination foot-dragging is being tolerated, especially with the olympics round the corner.

More to it than karaoke IMO.

For instances, in my place of work there are certain "players" in the office with masks under their chin, eating and talking on the communal phone, with doors and windows closed too. Shock and horror in know!!!!

Complacency has set in and it is tolerated for the sake of a quiet life.

Posted in: Supercomputer shows doubling masks offers little help preventing viral spread See in context

As long as the right type of masks are fitted properly they give sufficient protection. Most masks probably aren't worn properly, especially those lose uniqluo jobs that are popular.

85% is very high and 89% is even higher. I say wear two masks for peace of mind that you are not putting lives at risk... our worse!!!
