Unfortunately, canned and long life foods are the main items supplied in the initial stages of disaster relief, due to the unsanitary conditions.

People in Gaza are getting very ill because they have can only access canned rations for the past few months.

Posted in: Amazon argues that national labor board is unconstitutional, joining SpaceX and Trader Joe's See in context

If folk had honour, these companies would be boycotted.

However, as consumers are so shallow, they'll still support these inhuman parasitic businesses.

So it'll only get worse, unless people start showing SPINE.

Posted in: North Korea scraps all economic cooperation with South Korea See in context

aerially obliterate north korea.

That box was ticked 70 years back.

During the the Korean War, 635k tons of bombs, including 33k tons of napalm, were dropped on North Korean targets.

The U.S dropped 500k tons in the Pacific theatre in WW2.

Posted in: We lost sight of our important values and priorities as a result of prioritizing expansion of scale and the same thing is now happening at our group companies. See in context

The group companies include Hino and Daihatsu which also lied about emissions, fuel economy and safety testing.

Simply systemic fraud.

Posted in: U.S. scientist brews up a storm by offering Britain advice on making tea See in context

A friend who worked part-time at IHOP back in the day said they added a pinch of salt to the coffee to smooth it.

With tea, I like the bitterness and that's why it's a good thirst quencher.

Congratulations. Tottori joined JAL in 1985, gaining almost 40 years of experience in the airline. She has been acknowledged as managing the COVID disruption very well.

Posted in: Eddie Jones denies betraying Australian rugby after taking charge of Japan for 2nd time See in context

Jones's tenure with the Wallabies was far worse than most expected.

Through this year's season, the team was always in Jones's shadow and at the end his scrappy relationship with the media was cliched and out of step with the results.

However, he's a free agent and as a professional coach, he has the right to find a new role, and I think it suits the Australian union, too.

Best of luck to the Japanese team and Edward Jones.

The problem is not with the migrants in Austiral the poblem it with Australian society and the administration.

Today, the largest city in New Zealand was deemed the most unsafe in Australasia. So NZ has some issues to sort out too.

If diurnal, hopefully the animals get some sleep. Doing two shifts will burn them out. Not to mention the poor conditions.

Posted in: Roger Waters claims 'Israeli lobby' blocking his Uruguay, Argentina hotel stays See in context

Waters, one of the highest-grossing touring artists of all time, has long criticized Israel, urging a cultural boycott and flying an inflatable pig emblazoned with the Star of David at his concerts.

Criticism of Israel is fair, but criticism of Hamas is seriously needed in the same breath.

Posted in: Bestseller Musk biography to be adapted into film See in context

If Nicholas Cage was involved, and I waited for a half price session later in it's season... I'd probably watch it.

However, they say Kathy Bates has similar facial features to Musk... though, Cage looks better in a black leather jacket.

Difficult call.
