Posted in: Man City eye Premier League history as Arsenal dare to dream See in context

Liverpool suffered too many serious injuries to the senior players.

Mustn't make excuses for an inferior team that did not get the support from its fans this year.

Because it could compromise the integrity of the league. Teams may lose the home advantage by playing a game not at their home stadium.

"integrity". In the Premier League? Where do we start. The racist fans?

hahaha!

Welcome to Australia where proper manners are the norm at sport events.

That’s not the point, says Tara Brach, who holds a doctorate in psychology and has trained more than 7,000 people to be meditation teachers.

Someone is making a lot of money off these "followers".

This is a sound business move. And Australia would be a great market for Premier League teams to play. If there is concern about the players' health, then it sounds like they are not in the physical condition to be playing in the league in the first place.

Besides, if there really was concern about their health, they already passed the test by eating local food in the cities in which they play.

Are there any Americans here with an opinion on this?

They'd love the idea. It would be a great move to get those teams playing in front of huge crowds over the world. I assume the Brits would be supportive of that. It would be silly to try and argue otherwise, as you would agree.

Looking forward to Premier League teams playing in Australia again. They are not getting the fan support at home so this is a smart business move.

Today we were in Osaka where they ride their bikes like speeding lunatics. I am more afraid of the bikes than all the road traffic.

Posted in: Attacking birth control pills, U.S. influencers push misinformation See in context

I mean by that logic, why take any risk?

False equivalency.

The answer is the same for all risk - because the reward is worth the risk.

There is no need to take the risks with these toxic drugs, and the rewards can be had without taking those drugs.

Posted in: Attacking birth control pills, U.S. influencers push misinformation See in context

Not only stated, but demonstrated it with arguments, arguments that you could not even address, much less refute.

As an outside observer, no, you have not demonstrated anything. Well . . .

And no need to take these toxic pills. Just practice good common sense.

Why take these risks??

That also happens in Italy. One price for the locals and another for the visitors.

I don't eat in the tourist traps like you do.

Posted in: Healthy teeth are wondrous and priceless – a dentist explains why and how best to protect them See in context

That makes no sense, precisely the much longer period of life people can expect now is what makes the design fully inadequate thus requiring much more care.

That makes no sense, because healthy teeth at an early age, made possible with today's dental care, last longer and need less care later on in life.

 a lot more of care is necessary to keep them healthy until 80yo than just 40.

Not true because of numerous reasons that are obvious.

Posted in: Midlife health is about more than a waist measurement. Here’s why See in context

And new benefits, you still have not brought any evidence that the FDA failed when it approved them for use for weight loss, that claim (that the FDA is a failure for allowing the drugs) is still a personal belief you are unable to prove with anything.

There's no personal belief these weight loss drugs have risks. When are you going to produce a source that the FDA said there are no risks associated?

Posted in: Chemical pollutants can change your skin bacteria and increase your eczema risk See in context

No, it is not, there is no need nor value in a claim that tries to explain something already well understood and does it using impossible mechanisms and contradicting most of the evidence available.

Yes it is according to the medical consensus.

Posted in: Midlife health is about more than a waist measurement. Here’s why See in context

No, that is not the consensus, easily proved the moment you have repeatedly failed to provide evidence of this.

This is the expert consensus. Eating healthily and exercising and maintaining a healthy weight is the safest method compared to taking drugs with high risks. This is the best way according to scientists.

Posted in: Midlife health is about more than a waist measurement. Here’s why See in context

On current evidence, it is equally or more important for health and longevity to have higher muscle mass and better cardiorespiratory (aerobic) fitness than waist circumference within the healthy range.

The scientific consensus is that eating healthily and getting proper exercise to maintain a healthy waist is the best way to combat health risks associated with an expanding waist, and thereby there is no need for weight loss drugs like Ozempic, which along with its medically documented health risks, also reduces muscles mass.

If you were to ask a Japanese person about the current exchange rate between the US dollar and the Japanese yen, chances are they wouldn't know.

I asked, they knew.

I make wholewheat bread with organic Japanese flour for less money than store bread. About ¥300/kg.

You gotta do what you gotta do when there are no stores nearby as is the case in desolate parts of Japan.

The temple where he is the resident priest and believers come to worship has been in existence for more than 70 years, since his grandfather's time, the abbot explained.

A blight on this religion if the allegations are true.

They successfully convinced her to flee the temple for a second time, but Eicho felt panicked, thinking she would be "abandoned by the Buddha" and even contemplated suicide.

Nothing in the religion of Buddhism speaks of the Buddha abandoning the believers.

Very affordable. At the same time, you's have to spend at least 10 times that price to even get to a Wendy's lol!!

The reference from a legal firm is there, pretending not being able to see it only proves you now understand your claim was wrong and this is no personal opinion, but since you can't do anything to disprove the reference your only option is to pretend not being able to see it.

What a world it would be if a "reference from a legal firm" cemented itself as the law in a society!!

Posted in: After COVID, WHO defines disease spread 'through air' See in context

So a meaningless conspiracy theory then.

Just perusing briefly the vast resources, it is easy to find evidence of the WHO's failures in the face of the Covid crisis.

The WHO’s weak response to China’s mishandling of the COVID-19 outbreak has laundered China’s image at the expense of the WHO’s credibility.
