Posted in: Do you think there should be permanent host cities for both the summer and winter Olympics? See in context

Olympics have so expensive for the host nations an idea to have permanent host nations is more acceptable.

The countries chosen must already have the stadiums and infrastructure.

Countries participating, should all pay an 'entrance fee' for each Olympics to help the host country with the costs.

Posted in: Premier League clubs to discuss proposal to scrap use of video review See in context

VAR should be scrapped and instead let the Ref decide.

The Referee can go up to the monitor and review the incidence like in the USA NFL.

There is not a need for about another 3 people to get it wrong.

Adult entertainment / porn not using condoms results in the deaths of innocents.

Some countries have regulations for this and maybe Japan should do the same.

Posted in: Japan, U.S., EU to beef up countermeasures against counterfeit trade See in context

Temu does not sell counterfeit products.

They do sell similar products not exactly the same which is not illegal.

There are smaller companies' world over that do make same counterfeit products.

I have seen some watches that are lookalike to Rolexes on Craigslist, and I was wondering who was producing them.

I have worked hybrid for many years, long before Covid.

I do want the face-to-face interactions with co-workers as it is more productive and efficient.

Posted in: We all want self-respect – and keeping that in mind might be the missing ingredient when you try to change someone’s mind See in context

You should never ty and change someone's beliefs to yours because your beliefs may not be correct or right.

Accept others' views and be happy to state your beliefs.

Live and Let Live.

Posted in: New Tokyo restaurant charges higher prices to foreign tourists than Japanese locals See in context

Higher fees are something I have paid as a tourist in a number of countries and now a restaurant is charging higher prices for tourists.

I am not a buffet type eater as I do not eat so much.

Good luck to invite Japanese dines with lower prices.

It's my favorite Symphony and enjoy listening to it, even alone.

Ravel's Bolero is another one that never gets old for me.

I like all kinds of music.

Posted in: Starbucks founder Schultz says company needs to refocus on coffee as sales struggle See in context

In USA, McDonalds coffee is as good as Starbucks at a fraction of the price.

China has many coffee companies again selling coffee much cheaper than Starbucks.

I think game is over for Starbucks.

First you have to state the risks than just talk.

Too early to decide now.

I have not had Brazilian beef but Argentation beef while in Argentina and it was so good that it melted in mouth like butter.

Don't understand why 80% is American which is not really good.

It is a fact that people who are highly brainy, very smart have few friends and are mostly lonely.

The reason being that they think so fast and quicker than 'normal' people that they find it difficult to communicate with 'normal' people who do not think at the same level.

Sadly, life can be lonely if you are very bright, highly intellectual.

Posted in: Elementary school teacher arrested for hugging young boy See in context

Many years ago while coaching soccer, we would put an arm around the boys / girls shoulders if they were playing badly and give encouragement.

Soon after, in USA, it was considered an indecent act and we coaches could no longer 'hug' the players to give praise or encouragement.

You may have noticed that American coaches usually have their arms crossed against their chest and arms lie there!

Posted in: How U.S. allies are preparing for a possible second Trump term See in context

With all his faults, I am voting for Trump.

I am a Democrat, but Biden does not represent the majority of the residents of USA with his acts but the Elitists.

He has continued to tax the very low Social Security that seniors get to pay for his $95 billion wars giving money like confetti while seniors are struggling. Seniors have difficulty living on the social security even without Biden taking some away. Biden is a liar and past due.

Posted in: Japan's anti-monopoly body orders Google to fix ad search limits affecting Yahoo See in context

Who uses search engines now in the day of AI?

Total waste of time to search though pages of links to find what you are looking for.

Just use like Microsoft's Copilot or OpenAI and you get you answer right away.

Seach engines are morbid now.

Some more money for some more deaths.

What next when this money runs out, some more of the same and dead bodies?

There needs to be a diplomatic solution than coffins.

Any kind of abuse against children is unacceptable.

Children are children and you have to hug them even if you think they have had made a mistake.

Sounds like murder for not paying or enough protection money.

Posted in: Over 100 hotels in Japan fall victim to Booking.com phishing scams See in context

I have used Booking.com for a lot of reservations.

I would say, majority of online sites have probably no safeguards to detect phishing

or other scams. I will have to be careful in future.

When I receive scam sounding email, I hover over the sender's email address and fake email stands out and nothing like from where the sender is stating.

They have to be harvested first and then packed. Takes time.
