Do the 28 "coronavirus-related" deaths include suicides due coronavirus - induced causes and stresses?

How about a breakdown by age groups (60s,70s,80s,...)?

Just imagine if they would include the age groups of the deceased (as well as their co-morbidities) as is always done with the new "testée-positives". That would provide a bit of context, wouldn't it?

As the article correctly states, Trump received only 8% of the black vote in 2016, however as has recently been reported Trump is now up to at least 31 % or more, plus a very sizeable increase in the Latino vote. The #walkaway campaign led by black former liberals and others is a clear sign that the radical left are losing. All the lawlessness, looting, rioting, etc of the past few months has been effective at swaying non-vocal voters to support Trump. The "shy" or silent voters have been grossly underestimated and unrepresented in the polling.

Trump Landslide 2020!

I have one friend who literally survives otherwise unbearable daily pain(fibromylagia) with medical marijuana, but would be greatly more thankful if permitted to just grow her own rather than rely on an unreliable supply. Plus, no one ever died from excessive re recreational use(unlike alcohol beverages).

No problem. Some companies are "giving" long-term employees "voluntary" early retirement just in time for the winter holidays, after which the hiring activities will be nearly zero until... whenever. Oh, and Hello Work! will be closed so applications for unemployment will be impossible. Thanks!

Posted in: Japan's September job availability lowest in nearly 7 years See in context

Among them, 740,000 people voluntarily left their jobs, up 30,000, and 650,000 were laid off, up 60,000...

That would include people who were "offered voluntary early retirement" because the businesses are not able to support their pre-covid staffing even with normal attrition. Among those are also people who had so-called "renewable" annual contracts that were non-renewed at the discretion of the company. The figures are not rosy as the writer tried to paint them.

Can you provide a link for your stats? Qanon? RT? Breitbart? The article doesn't mention the stats you used.

Well, Biff, you can do your own homework. RT and Breitbart are both far more reliable than the rabid left "news" that you likely ascribe.

Posted in: GOP slowly gaining as early vote total surpasses 2016 See in context

The main takeaway is that ~86% of Democrats have already voted, whereas only ~14% of registered Republicans have. That also ignores the elephant in the room , the "shy" Trump supporters who are not included in the polling numbers but are showing up at the Trump rallies in DROVES.

Biden was correct to say this weekend that the democrats have developed the largest voter fraud organization in history (his own words).

Cohen is disgusting. The first Borat was disgusting and should have been arrested for attempting to kidnap Pamela Anderson. He and Howard Stern are both revolting and not funny at all.

"impudently packing the USSC bench"

Apparently you don't comprehend the difference between filling a vacant seat and "packing the court" which means expanding the number of seats on the bench.

RBG, who was appointed by Bill Clinton, was approached by Obama to retire after being diagnosed with cancer but declined for her own reasons. At that time, Obama could have comfortably appointed her replacement. The truth is that she assumed Hillary would succeed Obama, and so she could "gift" the nomination of her own replacement to Hillary. As it turns out, her plan was foiled providentially.

The fact of the matter is that the Republicans have followed the historical precedents, both in denying Obama’s nomination of Garland to replace Justice Scalia and in approving the very highly qualified Amy Coney Barrett. Justices have been vetted AND confirmed in as little as ONE DAY but very frequently in under 45 days many times. This is just sour grapes from the democrats who would have absolutely done the SAME THING given the opportunity.

... This behavioural norm is then carried into the workplace.

That is also carried into the home. The fact is that the peer-pressure to conform (obey mindlessly) is deeply rooted in the society and anyone who dares to think independently is excoriated. That is the root of the bullying in schools and the workplace as well.

The most important number is that there are only 25 hospitalized with "severe" symptoms, which is essentially the same number for weeks.

Notice that there's no breakdown of the ages of those 25 or their co-morbidities.

The 8 "corona-related" deaths didn't happen to folks in their 80's and 90's with one foot already in grave, right?

My 85-year-old neighbor passed away last month after fighting brain cancer for a few years, yet was counted as a "corona-related" death despite having absolutely NOTHING to do with the virus. No one around him had ever had any connection to the virus. Forgive me if I doubt the veracity of the "data".

Posted in: 1,805 suicides reported in Japan in September See in context

"The total for females -- 639-- was up 27.5% over last year."

So that means 175 more females committed suicide in Sept 2020 vs Sept 2019.

It's true that in April the rate was 20% lower which is consistent with other "short term" crises. The difference is that although the Stay-at-home period ended in late May, the crisis itself has yet to resolve, and in some ways has worsened, particularly in the employment/financial aspect. The hope of near-term recovery has been obliterated. MANY people have been furloughed, non-renewed, retired due to company(restructuring), etc.

Yes, it's a grave situation (no pun intended) manufactured by the media-induced panic over a pandemic with over 99.5% recovery rate.
