Lots of luck to her. Working hard and training for gold. Terrific.

Posted in: Trump, allies are laying groundwork to contest potential election loss See in context

Mr. zebala -- Someone yesterday made the comment: Trump is the savior. Not Jesus, not god, not angels, but Trump. It's not likely that the far right will accept defeat, even if Biden wins 10,000,00 to 25. The planned groundwork will probably make January 6th look like a boy scout outing. Don't worry. Your secret is safe with me.

So it's AI battling it out with AI. Looks like even a bigger AI is needed. And it will evolve.

Posted in: Plant-based meat alternatives are trying to exit culture wars – an impossible task? See in context

Why do vegetarians want something that looks and tastes like meat? This baffles me. Eat vegetables. You're a vegetarian. Or eat meat. You're an omnivore. If meat is what they want then why don't they just give in and eat it once in a while. As an omnivore, when I eat vegetables I eat vegetables and not meat that looks like vegetables. What's the point of being a vegetarian who eats vegetables that look like meat?

Posted in: Struggling sake breweries getting revamped, eye on overseas markets See in context

Now, it's just me, but I found a whole lot of Japanese food that agrees with sake. From edamame to dozens of other things, sake is the go. But you want to eat Japanese food to find them. Beer falls into a narrow range of taste unless you compare stout to lager. Perhaps sake is an acquired taste. For me, I acquired it the first time I tried it. Gotta eat Japanese and not just cheese. The UK has got it right.

Posted in: Locals in central Japan near Mount Fuji count on UFO craze for tourism See in context

I was out in the country with my girlfriend once and took a snapshot of her. Almost immediately a strange, off-blue object, oval shaped and bulging top and bottom descended. A humanoid figure stepped out (it looked to be a robot) and, seeing us, stepped back in to the object which rose and almost immediately disappeared. When we looked at my phone the picture of my girlfriend was there. But the object and robot weren't there at all. My phone was obviously working but the object wasn't there. I believe it had the ability to block photos. Of course, we told no one. No one would believe it. The decline of UFOs might be due to technical advances of the beings who show up. Believe it or not.

Posted in: How often do you use self check-outs at supermarkets and convenience stores? Do you prefer them over human checkout counters? See in context

Either way is all right with me. Usually, at least where I live, a supermarket will have 16 check-out lanes, but only two of them are open. Sometimes I have to get my stuff and go. The human interaction is iffy dicey. An over-worked, under-paid cashier who's had a bad day doesn't need me waiting impatiently in line. I'd rather get my business done and go.

Posted in: Mountainous regions, remote islands and other provincial areas, on the contrary, will see a sharp drop in the number of elderly residents and a shortage of those who could support their lives, so nursing care will cease to be operable as a business there. See in context

Reintroduce extinct animals? Where are they going to come from?

I wouldn't want to live in a place where I couldn't get health care from my grandmother.

What place is it where people want to live so badly? It just seems bad, hopeless, and sad.

What am I missing? I don't get it. Although I'd love to see a Wooly Mammoth. Now that would be great.

Posted in: Jesus is their savior, Trump is their candidate. Ex-president's backers say he shares faith, values See in context

Religion and policy should never mix. The US is 68% christian. And what of the 32% who aren't? The christians are forcing them to bow to christian beliefs. Pray to Jesus all you want but don't make those of us who aren't have to do the same. If 1/2 of a billion people in the world believe in a higher being? That's what, 8 1/2 billion who don't. There are actually billions who do but the don't believe in the christian higher being. Pray all you want to but ask yourself this: What would Jesus do? (Hint: it's not what you're doing.)

Posted in: Paul McCartney becomes UK's first billionaire musician See in context

What he did when he was with The Beatles was incomparable, but after that he was so-so. Nevertheless, he became a billionaire and though I admire quite a few artists more than him, he was a Beatle. Good for him becoming a billionaire. No one says much about the multi-billionaires so to put him down as bad because he is seems odd.

This guy was great. One of the most recognizable actors of his day, I was always glad to see him when he was in a movie. As the article says, he could play non-evil roles, but those mean-guys he played he played perfectly.

If I can't get the pudding (I can't. I'm not in Japan anymore) I'd like to have the glass. Ghibli is so iconic that having the glass would be a great reminder of that. You lucky people in Japan have the best cuisine in the world.

Macha. Strawberries. Perfect. It looks great and I already know I'd like it. Japan's Starbucks is so much better than here in the states where special drinks happen only at christmas and it's the same every year. Man, that looks good.

They will evolve. They will hold more people and be a common thing no one thinks about, like cars today. And like the first cars, they will evolve into something better.

Posted in: Celebrities face digital backlash over Gaza silence See in context

Mr. Yrral -- Okay, I think was Hamas did was terrible and I think what Israel is doing is terrible. Which side should I take? I don't have a side. Which side is like the Holocaust? To me it's both sides. As well, why should I make my thoughts on the matter public? The Palestinians and Jews here in the states did nothing wrong. Of course each supports their people. Why, instead of protesting, don't these people go to Palestine or Israel and pick up a rifle and DO something about it? To punish someone who doesn't make public their views -- especially influencers like artists -- is just not intelligent. Pick on the other side, not the innocent bystanders.

Posted in: Celebrities face digital backlash over Gaza silence See in context

This is stupid. Some things are best not talked about. Silence in public from influential people is not a crime. Their jobs are acting, singing, and all the arts and they should not be punished for remaining silent about such contentious issues. That doesn't mean they don't choose sides; it only means they don't publicly talk about it. There are many people who don't feel that they can knowledgeably choose a side, as well. These people are being punished for something they didn't do in their roles as artists but that in private might have a side. Pick on people on the other side, not someone whose views are not known.

Posted in: It has gotten difficult to determine which parent would be more appropriate to take care of the child. See in context

It's always a tough call in any country. The system does it as well as it can but can't always get it right. That is still better than having just mothers getting the kids. It's worth the effort, though, to try to place the child with the right parent.

Posted in: Teenager referred to prosecutors for using smart glasses to cheat on university entrance exam See in context

With technologies these days, especially AI, there will come a time when it will be impossible to tell if a student is cheating or not. One way or another students will find a way to cheat and not get caught. The testers will have to use technology to catch them. That seems possible if only they start now. The only other way is to test completely naked students after checking there pens or pencils and there eyeglasses.

Considering Mr. Polanski's passed transgressions, I have my doubts about this case. The girl he raped in the US was also a teenager. This case should probably not be entirely dropped.

Posted in: Around 68,000 elderly die alone in Japan annually: police See in context

GuruMick has an excellent idea. If such an action as he suggests were to be done, then, in a situation like that, it would be an excellent way to help. As for me, I'd rather die alone. Why make someone watch you die? I watched my baby sister die and it ain't pretty. Just let me go.

Posted in: Man arrested for killing 90-year-old father, says he was worn out from caring for him See in context

Ironically this story follows another in the articles above that report that thousands of elderly people die alone. This is a case that shows that sometimes, perhaps, dying alone is not so bad. This fellow could have reached out for help, at least probably, rather than to do what he did. Rather a sad story, to say the very least.
