Posted in: New Zealand drops 'COVID zero' goal after Delta outbreak See in context

While it is easy to sit behind a keyboard and judge politicians, at their positions an policy will affect death rates. Freedom always sounds better because those lives are just numbers to most of the general population.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 87 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 602 See in context

I'm also curious how it is under control so fast.

Few possibilities I can think of is that the spread is way higher than reported the past few months and a large population have immunity in addition to the vaccinated. Another is that the vaccinated and infected have low overlap and contributing to the herd protection. Last is that people just became more concerned when the hospital system collapse.

Well the removal of emergency state will probably be revealing in whether it has anything to do with herd protection.

Dozens of US drone strikes having civilian casualties.

The wars will always come back as terrorism if US don't apologize or compensate the affected casualties.

And they keep attacking back as "anti terrorism".

Posted in: S Korea bans app payment monopolies in world first See in context

While i agree with the payment system options for the store, but the commission one is fair game. There are other platforms available and the creators can just adjust their pricing on the high commission platforms to match profits on the other platforms. The government should just collect the taxes from these commissions and then create policies to support these industries.

Posted in: Police officer fatally shoots man threatening him with saw See in context

Somehow people think it is easy to actually aim for arms and legs on someone on approach.

Warning shot have been fired and I believe they have the right to protect themselves and others if one poses threat regardless of that person's age.

Cause you can't compete if you get infected, makes sense to be cautious before all your competitions.

Most countries still restrict travel and those who open up too fast without taking into account of Delta are already suffering.

No one have managed to prevent Delta Variant, New Zealand could have been the one but not anymore.

Maybe Larry Page brought it in.

Posted in: Toddler fatally shoots woman during work video call in Florida See in context

I really wonder if toddlers are able to get leverage and strength to squeeze the trigger.

It could be just a freak accident but a loaded gun not set to safe in a reachable location to a toddler while having the stength to squeeze that trigger is very unlikely.

@starpunk Cause sometimes people are willing to give up liberty for safety. What's the point of liberties if you can't walk alone at night and feel safe.

Posted in: To say ‘get vaccinated’ when there are no vaccines available shows that she has no understanding of the situation at the local level. See in context

Tokyo is a big area, some wards do still have vaccines and stock is always still coming in but slowly, it is still right to ask people to get vaccinated despite the slow restock rate.

Roll it out too fast and people will say they are testing vaccines on the population, too slowly and they say why is the roll out so slow.

There's really no winning both ways.

In any high density apartment living these issues are bound to happen.

Those who can stand their thin walls then maybe look for one with thicker walls or get your own detached home.

Wherever in the world you stay good neighbours are treasure.

Posted in: Tokyo Games cancelation likely to cost Japan ¥1.81 tril: Nomura See in context

The problem is that IOC is the one who can make the bigger decision to cancel.

The government canceling would mean a breach of contract and a lose-lose situation for the government.

Base on how much salary the IOC committee are getting and the multiple corruptions riddled with it, I'm all for boycotting them.

The base story of Kimetsu no Yaiba is kind of just another shonen manga, the real rival is Ufotable.

Ufotable made Kimetsu no Yaiba great, otherwise the manga it would never reach this level of attention.

Looks like the rest of the world will get more data about masks and vaccination effectiveness with USA creating so many test scenarios, so thanks i guess.

Here's an interesting read about why there was some confusion about masks within the scientific community.
