The 1964 Games in Tokyo were held from Oct. 10 to Oct. 24 -- precisely to avoid the midsummer heat & humidity, plus to avoid the typhoon season.
Why on earth didn't they schedule the 2020 Games for October as well???

"'Too sunburned' lol that's wild," Osaka wrote on Twitter. "I never get sunburned" by using a sunscreen, she added -- naming a local brand.
I read that the brand is made by one of her corporate sponsors. It's great that she turned it into a humorous opportunity to sell herself and her sponsor's product!
And that's how you handle some comedian's tasteless joke -- you don't whine and moan about it.
I've heard my ethnicity "slapped around" quite a few times. Like Naomi, I don't cry over it.

Pompeo with zero evidence geez the Trump administration are trying their hardest to beat that drum....
Offering evidence at this point could compromise classified information, as well as secret operations and the intelligence agents carrying them out.
So, let's not leap to the conclusion that just because they're not offering evidence, it must automatically mean that they're fabricating things.

I agree that Iran should not engage the US because Donny has demonstrated he lacks good faith.
What makes you say he lacks good faith? He has repeatedly offered to have talks with Iran, but Iran refuses to budge until sanctions are lifted.
Even North Korea agreed to meet with Trump, despite sanctions not having been lifted.
So why won't Iran? And why are you blaming stalled talks on Trump instead of them?

your first thought is not going to be "Oh, she is mad at her daddy." It's going to be, "Is that her daddy, or is he grabbing her?"
I think it's best to act on the side of caution
In other words, treat him as guilty until he proves himself innocent. The hallmark of a free society!
What other people would we say should be treated this way? Foreigners in Japan? Black people in America?

“It’s not prejudice. It’s a fact that men are more likely to commit a crime against children.”
My thoughts exactly. Better safe than sorry.
It is NOT a fact that men are more likely to commit crimes against children. It is not a fact at all.
Do some research. Women are at least as likely, if not more so, to abuse and neglect children and otherwise mistreat them illegally. Studies confirm this.
Just glibly pronouncing men as being more likely to commit crimes against children? That's a vivid example of the very prejudice being referenced in this article.

I'm not a medical professional, but from what I hear, elderly people's bodies simply cannot adjust to heat or cold the way younger people's bodies can.
Perhaps the heatstroke had set in without the two ladies knowing it or feeling its onset, by which time it was too late.
That's why the elderly really need someone to be with them, especially when it's very hot or very cold.
My grandmother, who died at 100, had to have the room temperature carefully controlled in her house the last several years of her life, because if it got too hot or too cold, her body wouldn't adjust and the doctor said it could be very dangerous for her.

The British never should have returned Hong Kong to this repressive communist regime.
It never made an agreement to return Hong Kong to any such regime.
The agreement they made was with an entity called Qing China, which no longer exists. So why didn't that make the agreement null and void?

Hopefully the driver will be arrested on charges of "Professional negligence resulting in death".
Just "resulting in injury," I hope. The boy is still alive. I hope and pray he recovers.
It seems awfully unnecessary for the police to drive like that, just to bring someone in for a drug test.

Wow. We have just read all about Nagayama's sob story.
But not a word about the lives, activities, or dreams of his victims.
My goodness, their names aren't even included here. This report doesn't even have the decency to tell us. They've been totally de-humanized in the name of advancing a viewpoint.
It's too bad they never got a chance to establish a "legacy" that this multiple murderer has left, one that is now being glorified by a biased media outlet.

Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC actually said that these shootings are something that the Democratic side can capitalize on, for the 2020 elections.
Yes, she said that.

During the combined presidencies of Reagan, GHW Bush, Clinton, and GW Bush, there were a total of 23 mass shootings in America -- resulting in 218 deaths.
During Obama's presidency alone, there were 24 mass shootings resulting in 236 deaths.
I don't remember any blame for this being affixed to Obama -- at least not to anything near the level of vitriol as we see now being slung at Trump.

It turns out that the Dayton shooter was against Trump, was a socialist, and who tweeted something about killing everyone who he considered a "fascist."
Stop blaming Trump. These mass shootings have been happening in America (and other countries) for decades. Many decades. Long before Trump ever even became famous, let alone became president.
Stop exploiting others' suffering to disgustingly demonize elected officials who you don't like.

It turns out that the Dayton shooter was against Trump and was a socialist who tweeted "kill every fascist" before going on his rampage.
Stop blaming Trump, people. These mass shootings have been going on in America (and, yes, other countries) for decades. Whoever the president is at the time has nothing to do with it.
Anyone who tries to attribute the Dayton or El Paso shootings to Trump is worse than an idiot. He/She is disgustingly exploiting other people's suffering to advance their own politics.

Go after the gangs and the crazies
This is nothing to do with white right wing terrorists. As a right-winger, maybe you should do a better job policing your community?
It isn't surprising that the U.S. left is politicizing this.
The U.S. left politicizes everything -- sport, music, films, TV, education (starting from early primary school), science, religion. They politicize absolutely everything.
Now they are politicizing this -- blaming Trump, demonizing his supporters, and calling for "new gun laws" even though they did nothing about the issue when they ran the entire U.S. government -- the presidency and the Congress -- from 2009 to 2011.
The only times the U.S. left didn't politicize a mass shooting was (a) when a Bernie Sanders supporter shot several Republican representatives in Washington on a baseball ground, and (b) when an atheist committed a mass shooting at a church in Texas.
Americans seem to identify with their favorite politicians or political party the way sport fans get rabid over their favorite team. And while the U.S. right isn't innocent of this, it's the U.S. left that really goes overboard with it.
The U.S. left sees everything, absolutely everything, through a political lens -- with particular effort made to demonize their political opponents every chance they get.

The Trumpers here will all deny it but even deep down, they know its true. Trump has unleashed hate in America.
These horrible mass shootings never happened before Trump became president?
It's terrible that you are exploiting this terrible tragedy to make a political point, and to scapegoat those whose political views differ from your own.
Blame the gun, blame Trump and his supporters -- but no, don't blame the guy who actually pulled the trigger.
That would just make too much sense.

Say that in the middle of winter, when temperatures are breaking record lows.
That's what climate change is. Extreme temperatures.
Yes, climate change is real. It's so real, that it's been going on for millions of years.
Is it caused by human activity? Only a very little, if at all.
It's weather, people. Please don't be so unhinged from reality as to think that weather pattern changes, which have been happening for ages, are because of us and our cars and machines.

Well, cocaine is hardly harmless. It's almost as bad for you as alcohol. But regardless, I do agree, as all drugs should be legal.
Please. It's much worse for you than alcohol.
As for "all drugs should be legal," no offence but I think one has to be on drugs to say such a thing.
We have far too many people dying from drugs now, when they're illegal. They're highly addictive at a level that alcohol is not.
How many more would die with legalisation, which would send a message that drugs are okay and won't harm you?

Trump's America is one that has seen African-Americans' lowest-ever unemployment rate.
(Under Obama, in contrast, Americans of all races generally struggled economically -- and black Americans in particular.)
But no, I guess it's more logical to take one person's alleged comment and attribute that to the entirety of the country.
And I accentuate the word "alleged" on purpose.

It's hard to take Democratic accusations of "racism" seriously, when they will not even condemn blatant anti-Semitic garbage spewing from the mouths of their own party members.
Not to mention the party's own historical support of slavery and segregation of black people in the U.S.
A support that did not fully end until well into the 1960s.
I don't recall that this party has ever issued a formal apology for its past support of racist policies. Before demanding "slavery reparations," it should first make its own moral reparations by issuing such an apology.
And even today, this party supports certain policies that they claim are to benefit black Americans -- because, in truth, they think that black people are just too incapable of succeeding in life on their own. Which makes me wonder who the true "racists" really are.
