Shionogi & Co. keeps trying to get its hand in the money jar, doesn’t it?

Got to be one of the dumbest questions I've seen.

Do you even know what business means?

How about those from Europe?

Do you think your country will support a shooting war with China?

(Not necessarily directly, even just support like in Ukraine)

Ian,we the citizens decide,who we will defend,do not talk something you have no knowledge of like American willing to protect others

You a US citizen?

So what do you think will be the decision of your govt?

Will they commit to armed conflict with China in defense of Taiwan?

All I see so far seem to be delusional wishful thinking.

I was waiting for even just a simple official statement something like "the US will defend Taiwan militarily if China attacks"

Maybe there's already one, ive no idea

With strong bipartisan support I would say the US would defend Taiwan if attacked.

Have they said anything of the sort?

Don’t worry China is too weak to attack Taiwan. Xi will soon be gone and this will all go quiet!!!

Not reassuring coming from a hysteric.

Calm down

China doesn't consider it an annexation because Taiwan is part of the one China.

But they should, because it’s not.

How do you explain to yourself the US' one China policy?

Also re Europe, indianexpress writes:

Philippe Le Corre, a French scholar of China and a senior fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School, wrote in the Ouest-France newspaper. “With Asia, the remoteness — reinforced by the absence of human contact and international travel for two years — does not favor a possible European involvement in a conflict in Taiwan or in the China Sea.”

If China attacks Taiwan there will be a weapons resupply problem for the US. 

That's assuming the US will defend Taiwan militarily.

The US' one China policy doesn't support Taiwan independence, I often read, unlike their support for an independent Ukraine

Many nations rely on trade with Taiwan

I thought many nations rely on trade with China thanks for the clarification

Have the US committed to the defence of Taiwan yet?

And the other countries?

I have been a loyal tax payer in Japan for 9 years and work in an industry with a critical talent shortage - tech sector - yet I have only 65 points on the PR eligibility scale and therefore do not qualify for PR.

What's the requirement 70pts?

Anyway it's not necessary (afaik) if you already have 10 years residency so your application can be accepted when you do.

Point system is so people with critical skills can apply sooner

I thought COVID was going to be Mother Earth's remedy for that

Convenient remedy too, mostly sick and elderly dying.

Anyway you shouldn't worry about sustainability, if population goes beyond what can be sustained then it will naturally go down.

And humans can always be depended upon to whittle down the population every so often

Although people who do not find learning to be a rewarding experience usually have negative opinions regarding population reduction

That's just a , as someone said , a condescending comment, implying people who don't share your opinion are stupid

the opposite could very well be more likely as overpopulation could be easily seen to cause more problems

Unless you have data to back it up.

I'm just assuming that your opinion is population reduction is good though, from that initial statement, because tldr

Posted in: Scientists call for more research into 'climate endgame' See in context

If there is conclusive evidence you don't have to mention it, it would have been plastered front and center on all kinds and types of media.

Everyone will be talking about it much more than when covid started.

Posted in: Scientists call for more research into 'climate endgame' See in context

The evidence is pretty conclusive at this point...as pointed out above it is questionable whether we can avoid catastrophe

What evidence?

If there is conclusive evidence then world leaders would have acted with much more urgency and mobilized much more resources than what they did and are doing for covid.

Posted in: Japan to offer Omicron COVID shot to at least twice-vaccinated people See in context

. We should form our opinions on the basis of evidence, and the evidence clearly shows that the vaccinations have failed to live up to their initial promise.

Can you show here the evidence that you say clearly shows what you say?

previous 3 vaccines did not work and highly likely high percentage of vaccinated paople are now or having serious issues/hospitalized/or are dying/thanks to covid/or having serious side issues/heart etc/.gov is hiding these data from us/as these are never published here even we get everyday so called "detailed report" as part of covid brain massage/.

How did you know about it if the data are being hidden?

Posted in: Scientists call for more research into 'climate endgame' See in context

Writing in the journal the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, they proposed an international research agenda to help governments plan for "bad-to-worst cases".

These included four main areas of concern -- what the authors termed the "four horseman" of climate change: famine and malnutrition, extreme weather, conflict, and vector-borne diseases.

"Writing in the journal the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science" ?

four horsemen?

They won't get people to get serious by posting jokes

And what with the people like me who didn't have the first shot yet? Or with people who took only the first shot but didn't take a second one?

Get the first two shots first obviously

Pfizer Inc.'s top-selling COVID-19 vaccine and treatment have left the New York City drugmaker flush with cash to spend on an acquisition feel. The vaccine and treatment brought in more than $16 billion combined just in the recently completed second quarter.

Mr KiplingToday 

They could do that but then the Russians would be accused of a war crime by cutting power to civilians.

Just one more to the 26,000(?) mentioned above.

Anyway if the attack continues maybe that would become a moot point
