Don't smoke or drink alcohol anymore. At my advanced age, I may need medical cannabis.

Is any amount of alcohol bad for your health now?

Alcohol is supposed could be beneficial taken moderately

Research shows that high-frequency users are more likely to become addicted to marijuana

Groundbreaking

“High frequency use also increases the risk of developing cannabis-associated psychosis,” a severe condition where a person loses touch with reality, he said.

My experience not citing figures suggests the figures not very significant.

Congrats to the U,.S.A. Smaller countries with many neighbors have a distinct advantage yet we keep coming out on top!

Maybe Japan lost some of its distinct advantages

Japan ranked first place in the previous report released in 2021 during the coronavirus pandemic, but the organization used different criteria then.

This is a desirability ranking

> More objective and meaningful is the actual number of foreign visitors for each country which is:

> 1) France 79 Mio

> 2) Spain 71 Mio

> 3) US 51 Mio

> 4)Turkey 51 Mio

> 5) Italy 50 Mio

> 6) Mexico 39

> these are 2022 numbers which are not meaningful for Japan as it was just reopening to tourism. For Japan better to compare with 2019 which was 32 Mio.

> So Japan is probably number 7.

Ranking here is based on a tourism report released Tuesday, you might have missed it

It's about time someone got a real sentence for rape.

And by the time he gets out, it's unlikely even Viagra would help him.

No sex for him ever again in his life, except with himself, is justice.

That's it? For raping 7 people?

Why did my comment get deleted when I’m literally quoting from the article and talking about its contents?

> The war has triggered a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, displacing roughly 80% of the population and leaving hundreds of thousands of people on the brink of starvation, according to U.N. officials.

> I’ve been hearing this “brink of starvation” rhetoric since November, but according to Al Jazeera only 27 people have died due to malnutrition so far:

It wasn't Jewish land actually few Jews lived there in comparison to Palestinians and Druze the only people with proven roots going back more than 3000 years confirmed by DNA unlike Ashkenazi with nearly 60% of their DNA being European!

> No, in fact the Jews have lived there continuously since ancient time (thousands of years) as the historical sites, writings from visitors to the lands (who NEVER mentioned seeing any Palestinians) and DNA tests.

> And, the fact is, with such fact being indisputable, Israel is a country. No DNA tests can prove otherwise.

> "The U.N. has in part become a terrorist entity in itself because it cooperates with Hamas and covers for it,"

In an apparent response, Netanyahu said any move to establish an alternative to Hamas as the government of Gaza required that the Palestinian Islamist group first be eliminated, and demanded this goal be pursued "without excuses".

Okay. I'm Shohei Ohtani. I get up, I work out, go to the field and practice for a few hours, and then I play a major league game of baseball. Then I have nothing left to do but to spend 12 hours looking at my accounts, calling brokers about investments, chatting with my multi-billionaire pal, and then I go to sleep. 10 minutes later, I get up, work out,. . .

> Does that make sense to anybody? He hires people to do certain things, particularly here in the US where his English is faulty (but improving) and he has a reliable buddy to lean on. Hey, I'm Shohei Ohtani. I just hit two home runs and went 4 for 4. Now let's take a look at the books.

Yep the number of unvaccinated probably so low practically everyone of those deaths was vaccinated. what picture emerges?
