Extra Virgin Palm Oil comments

Posted in: The more people earn, the greater their rate of spending on entertainment and leisure like overseas trips. I suspect cash has been spent instead on luxury goods. The coronavirus pandemic isn't an economic crisis where money disappears. See in context

I know some restaurant owners and a few others who I would like Akane Yamaguchi, a highly paid economist at the Daiwa Institute of Research, to look in the eye and say, "The coronavirus pandemic isn't an economic crisis where money disappears."

Virusrex-san, I logged in to this Japan Today account only to say thank you, Thank You to you for your kind, patient, and thorough explanations.

Mark Twain said, “You can’t reason someone out of something that they weren’t reasoned into in the first place,” but I know that you have helped many confused and anxious readers here understand some essential and very important scientific truths about COVID-19 (and viruses in general). I sincerely appreciate your efforts.

I hope and believe that many more readers will continue to learn more about and understand the reality of the current situation rather than succumb to the hyperbole. We are all in this together, and must pull together or pull apart.

it makes me so sad that Wall Street can't outguess and pre-leverage consumer prices

we need stricter laws against people buying what they need rather than buying what stockbrokers have bet on

One hour at 180 degrees Celsius for 5 mm chicken slices seems excessive.

Vince Blackさん,

All it takes is one worker who doesn't know or doesn't care about the proper guidelines for cleanliness, e.g. licking their own fingers after each bit of cake or rice is put on a dish or into a young mouth, or pulling down their mask to sneeze or cough into their hand.

One careless person can do a lot of damage. That's how we got here.

Quoting Derek Grebe:

Coming into the office, sneezing and snotting everywhere (Especially with the renowned aversion to hand-washing that many oyajis display)

Let's not forget about the open-mouth cough, a tradition beloved by all and unhampered by science.

"Please cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing" would be so much more beneficial to the public than "Feel free to patronize mothers, the elderly, and the handicapped."

Like Nissan,

Mitsubishi has also faced its own scandals.

Well, don't be shy, Tennessee. You've got your own ghosts, both past and present. In fact, one of "the state's most powerful Republicans, House Speaker Glen Casada," has had his own power failure very recently.

Unbelievably and arrogantly self-induced, as well.

Darmstadt; "Overblown. Japan has a lower smoking rate than Switzerland, Norway, Ireland, Germany, and France, among others. These nations are not know to be blighted by health issues and have (behind Japan of course) the highest life expectancies on Earth."

I was unaware of this. Do you know if these other countries allow smoking virtually everywhere (with the exception of most hospitals, sports stadiums, and some streets in Tokyo), as Japan does?

Scrote: "Many people here just throw their rubbish in the street."

In the major cities I see many people using the bushes and shrubbery as waste bins. I was pretty shocked the first time I saw a boy stop his bicycle to toss a can into the bushes, but I was later informed by multiple sources that that was normal. I've seen this type of behaviour hundreds of times since then, admittedly most often done by males of every age.

I forgive Mr. Lee because of how long ago it has been, but the name that he and Mr Ditko gave this character is "Spider-Man" not "Spiderman".
