Food is prepared hours before and left out.

Hot summer temperatures food can start to spoil within an hour.

Bacteria grows quickly and first hand seen it under microscope after 2 hours.

The food in side the petri dish was almost completely black with bacteria.

JP government makes it so difficult to get the stimulus money.

What's wrong with changing the password online.

In the US whoever filed their income tax will automatically receive money. Did nothing.

Btw, there will be a 2nd around of payments in the US just passed today.

Posted in: Osaka mayor under fire for saying women dawdle at shops See in context

JP women take too long examining meats, cooked food.. looking under, over, the sides of the package.

Always grabbing food from the back of the shelf.

Avoid following a women at the cashier. Get ready to pay!

Koike is clearly overworked and not making the right decision.

Once they postpone the Olypmics the Japanese government can concentrate on the virus, Finally.

They will kindly ask people to stay home.

And kindly ask event organizers to be careful.

And kindly ask if your fever is only for a day or two to come back later.

It's because Japanese politicians have no bols.

In the US, use T-Mobile's one week data pass 1 GB for $10. 1 GB was sufficient for email and internet, no vids. Drove for a week using Google maps so added another GB. Most US states were 4G LTE, Northern Cali was a bit slower.
