Posted in: WADA reject cover-up charge; China labels swimming reports 'fake news' See in context

Clearly no one outside of china believes china, nor SHOULD anyone believe china.

My guess is they got busted, when confronted then china simply asked if WADA etc if they still wanted to have the winter olympics or not.........well given how the IOC rolls, we all know what they would do & CLEARLY DID, they covered for china!!!

Just more reasons why the olympics need to be scrapped or completely gutted & re-invented!!

Posted in: China summons Japanese, Philippine diplomats over negative comments See in context

How about china stop being a bully in SE Asia!! How about stop buying countries like Sri Lanka, or in Africa!!!

China is simply a nasty piece of work!!

As I have said for decades now the WORLD can either pay now or later, wrt to china, the more we let china be a bully etc the worse its going to in with more death & destruction!!!

I feel sorry for young people having to grow up as it will get real nasty when the you know what eventually hits the fan!!!

Posted in: Japan's population falls below 125 mil; down for 13th straight year See in context

Folks the most important numbers to note are below:

The number of people aged from zero to 14 fell 329,000 to about 14.17 million, accounting for 11.4 percent of the total population, the lowest ever. Those aged between 15 and 64 dropped 256,000 to about 73.95 million, 59.5 percent of the total population.

THIS is what will continue to drive Japans population down, the old folks aging out will be insanely costly, the lack of newborns is the nail in the coffin!

Posted in: How learning about back pain can increase the chance of recovery See in context

If you get lower back pain just go on youtube, you will soon find a LOT of different simple stretching, bending excercises you can do, try some, take it slow & stick to the ones that bring you relief, for most the pain will reduce quite quickly & be gone in a week or so.

I have this happen with some frequency, especially in winter for years, hit me in Jan & in a week I had completely forgotten I had it, you can thank me later.

Posted in: A new exhibition aims to bring Yoko Ono's art out of John Lennon's shadow See in context

The simple, most likely truth is that if Yoko didnt meet John, this article/exhibition & many prior would simply have not taken place.

It is what it is. The FACT John comes up again & again here shows HE is KEY to her still being in the limelight, again, is what it is.

Posted in: Fans outraged by Barbie Oscar snubs See in context

Seems they got it right! Clearly Ken was more deserving of nomination than Barbie!!

Then trying to equate them is well just STUPID!!!

Sad to see Gosling being a super simp at all this, or perhaps he is just trying to deflect potential drama that might come his way given Barbie couldnt make the cut!!!

Ken was after all the real star of the flick......so maybe the category he was nominated should be changed LOL!!!

Nukkuheddo,

Absolutely correct, I have never heard of this till now, the fact that there were about 900 SUSPECTS all doing basically the same job, country wide, supposedly committing similar crimes seems INSANELY far fetched especially 25yrs ago......

Prosecutors clearly were dumb as rocks.....apologies to rocks everywhere!

Posted in: Dogs, antennas and honey for Japan's big bear problem See in context

In my 30+ yrs here this is the 2nd or 3rd time a drop in acorn production has had bears look elsewhere, ie hang out closer to humans looking for food to fatten up for hibernation, the LACK of ACORNS IS a thing for bears here, if supply is lacking it WILL affect them very negatively.

And if prior to this drop in acorn production populations have been increasing(likely due to LARGE amounts of acorns) then this year seems to be a culmination of increased bear population and now a sudden decrease of acorns, hence the bear encounters.

Seeing pictures of bears out & about that by now should be hibernating means likely many once they eventually sleep will simply not wake up as their body stores wont get them through the winter.

In the spring those that do make it through we will likely again see more encounters with humans as many will be VERY hungry. So people in bear country will need to be more aware.

No easy answers for all this, hunting is fine in my opinion, moving problems animals away from humans is good, if they keep returning then they will need to be put down. These issues are not new, just need to have plans in place.

This year & next will have more problems but will likely settle down after that, this happens in cycles will lots of animals not just bears.

Posted in: How do you think movies made in recent years will be perceived in the future, say, 50 years from now? See in context

All I can say is thankfully I wont be here in 50yrs, the way the west is quickly rotting it will be a very different world, not likely to my liking & yes as others have said recent movies will be considered crap if the world is capable of even viewing them. I imagine our digital world is going to get hit will a real hard re-set that we should be more worried about

Posted in: Fundraising scandal in Japan's ruling party turns up heat on embattled PM Kishida See in context

The LDP have been collecting $$$ on the sly & passing brown envelopes around non-stop since the end of WWII, toss in all bid rigging(olympics anyone) and the amounts involved are insane, one of the reasons things are expensive & why we get so so so little value for our taxes here, but they are above the law.

Time to ""sacrifice"" a couple of the usual fall guys, ie. "secretaries" who are designed specifically for this purpose...... rinse & repeat!!

NO THANKS!

Posted in: Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose accused of sexual assault See in context

Sadly its become dangerous to interact with females in the west, hell a simple accusation is enough to ruin a mans life, proof, simply not needed, and even if you are cleared the man still loses MASSIVELY, there are plenty of examples of false accusations where the one lying gets off scott free.

As for this buzzer beater case.......looks like a $$$$ grab, as pointed out above by another poster she ADMITS that Axel would have to have been a mind reader, NO ONE can do that!!

Posted in: A nosedive means children being born now will be thrown into a society that becomes distorted, shrinks and loses its ability to function. See in context

This quote is what I have been saying here for more than 2decades, even if families have 3 or more kids the population will STILL decline, Japan may well already be beyond turning this around sadly!

It is a bit more complicated. There are a minority of families with 3 or more children who like and can handle a big family and another minority that either are single or married with no children.

Even 3+ kids is not likely to do much to population overall at this point, as I have harped for ages LOOK at the population pyramid for Japan the BASE is SHRINKING & that base CANNOT expand over time as things currently are, its really simple sad reality

Damn I thought it was bad when I could no longer trust photos once digital was here(& I love photography!) was here, but now with AI, you really cannot trust anything, we have no idea what, where & how AI is going to screw up societies worldwide.....

The Geni is out of the bottle with AI....... I feel sorry for young people, tech has & is destroying people much more than helping them, with AI this IS going to get a LOT LOT worse.....

I would be ok with this IF NHK apologized for knowingly supporting J&A just like MOST media etc in Japan did for decades, NHK was a part of the problem, they & other media should also be paying some sort of price for turning blind eyes for DECADES!!!!

For shame!

Posted in: Female superhero team battles uncertain times in 'The Marvels' See in context

And while Larson's 2019 film "Captain Marvel" grossed more than $1 billion, it suffered from sexist trolling and "review-bombing" online -- patterns that have sadly been repeated and amplified with "The Marvels" and its three female leads.

Well its out now & reviews by REAL people, not like the author of the fluff piece above, are coming in & seems the rumors are true the movie is crap, sadly unsurprising, dont waste your $$ on it!
