I don’t think they would need to go to New Zealand. Very quiet corner of the world, except for people interested in Rugby.

Posted in: Apple's next iPhone mirrors last year's, adds more storage See in context

I might think about it. I’m still using an IPhone 7. Hard to believe people need to upgrade every 1 or 2 years. I guess you need to take care of the phones more to make them last.

Actually the British team was banned for taking performance enhancing drugs during the Olympics. Glad to hear that they were punished.

I don’t have a TV and while there was an excellent website available for the Olympics, there was no way to watch the Paralympics live.

Posted in: COVID spurs dramatic surge of 'konkatsu' among middle-aged people See in context

I think that a lot of people responding on here about splitting the bill and the wife being a homemaker only are talking about the older generation. Most younger women in Japan work hard and also pay their own way.

I don’t understand what America is still doing there. They haven’t made any progress in improving the situation. Over 20 years later and the group they ousted are back in charge.

Why don’t the teams in Scotland join the EPL? Hardly a competitive league with only two teams.

Posted in: Japan beats France 87-71 to reach women's basketball final against U.S. See in context

Unfortunately, all the attention goes to the Men’s basketball team from Japan. Never heard anyone mention the female team who seem to be of a much higher ability than the men’s team.

Posted in: Sapporo hopes Tokyo Games success will boost 2030 Winter Olympic bid See in context

The Winter Olympics is not such a big event. I imagine that a city like Sapporo has the required infrastructure already.

Posted in: Spain defeats Japan 88-77 in men's basketball See in context

That was a surprise result, especially because Japan has players in the NBA. Most Japanese fans predicted a medal for Japan in this tournament. They should win their final two games though.

Unfortunately racism is very common in England. I’m glad they have arrested them.

Posted in: Facebook, Twitter vow to tackle racial abuse of England soccer players See in context

Unfortunately it seems the English supporters are already blaming the Chinese and others for the racist tweets. Nothing can be solved until the people admit there is something wrong with their own country.

Unfortunately this is very common thinking in Britain. Blame the accusers and support the people who made the comments. Hopefully future generations are more accepting of differences.

As is always the case when assaults against women are reported, a lot of guys say it is a lie

Posted in: Father of 2-year-old girl who died after being left in car for 7 hours last summer to be charged See in context

Unfortunately this is a very common occurrence around the world. It seems that the father was not the usual caregiver. The temperature in a car gets much higher than the outside temperature. I hope that everyone reading this remembers that.
