Why take risks and eat at the restaurant, if you want to support the business just order as take out.

There have been cases of poor ventilation causing clusters, so why take the risks especially when the new variants have been proven to be more efficient with infecting.

Posted in: Parents of bullied teenage girl who committed suicide commission portrait to 'attend' Coming-of-Age Day ceremony See in context

Despite the many responses of her not wanting to be with the bullies, i personally think it is good as it sends a very strong message and triggers everyone who is attending the ceremony be it the classmates, bullies and teachers.

I feel that not talking about it and sweeping it under the carpet is more disrespectful to her and to those who may be facing this culture right now.

Whether the comments are positive or negative it has definitely played its part bringing up the conversation and hopefully saving someone cause it made someone think twice.

The cheaper options only started a few years back as well.

The problem with some of these "contracts" that people are stuck with tend to be a multi service bundle with TV and fixed line Internet.

It is good that this is being accessed lots of other countries have the same issues as infrastructure do not allow foreign competition leading to this possible "price fixing" amongst the monopoly vendors.

Regardless of whether he's famous or not, businesses have the responsibility to keep people safe.

It is no different from standard workplace safety where you need everyone to observe safety protocols just that in this case the protocols are new.

Covid has been known to cause blood clots despite showing mild symptoms.

There also have been many cases showing long term issues after recovery currently has been termed as "long covid", if you don't have a need to visit anyone then don't do it and leave till everyone gets vaccinated.

While many are saying it is their right but not so in a place of business.

Not sure if this hotel did it but most hotel bookings nowadays have stated the need to wear masks.

If you don't abide then you basically breach the contract and the hotel have every right to evict you if required.

I wonder why people think foreigners coming into another country will get them first class treatment, when you are a foreigner in any country it is pretty normal to receive second class treatment in terms of policies.

While people are blaming him, everyone should really be more concerned what the loopholes are and why nothing is done about it time and again. As always it will just be anger at one problem and then a new problem to be angry about.

I know doctor do sterilises before entering and showers before doing anything.

Posted in: YouTuber indicted for eating sashimi at supermarket before paying for it See in context

If you haven't pay for it then the item is technically not yours.

What if for some reason your credit card doesn't work, somehow you forgotten to bring your wallet or that it was stolen along the way?

I think people needs to have some restrain, i don't think you are that thirsty that you can't even wait a few minutes.

Civility is what keeps order, if everyone were do it then it would cause lots of inconveniences as the cashier would be confuse whether the food item is still safe given that they do not know that you have consumed it.

Posted in: Woman holding baby hit by truck on crossing; driver arrested See in context

There are more accidents with trucks cause of the size and increased blind spots due to the size.

Depending on the size of the truck sometimes there are very wide blind spots which even after checking you might still miss someone who may just happen to walk into the blind spot just after you check.

Which is why trucks needmore AI and sensors to reduce and prevent accidents, as a single driver can only have that much span and range of attention.

It likely isn't going to protect you against infection but i believe it may likely reduce the viral load in your mouth and reduce the risk of spreading to others which is kind of useless.

Posted in: Street Kart company ends crowdfunding campaign with dismal support See in context

I find it amazing in the first place why the go karts are allowed on normal roads.

Initially they were pretty dangerous with no indication lights, too low for certain trucks to see and lack of helmets.

The addition of lights and a "stick" only added probably after they received backlash from the community.

I would never support such a business that uses another company's IP blatantly and disregard community safety.

I don't know what you mean by access to testing, but if you are fine then what's the point of testing?

Posted in: Japan's virus contact-tracing app gets 2.7 mil downloads in 3 days See in context

@blahblah222 Basically it generates a random ID when you install it and then remembers all the other users' ID you have been close by. And when any of the users test positive they can enter that they are positive and it will then alert those IDs who have been closed to that ID.

The app name is called COCOA COvid COntact App

The way how the app hides your privacy is sound, if you're still that paranoid then probably stop using your smart phone and stay off the internet cause there are worse violators of privacy out there.

It is pretty much the same as wearing masks, effectiveness becomes better only when the mass majority does it.

Posted in: Shoppers queue, crash website for Uniqlo's washable masks See in context

@Ani

It is a matter of how effective, it definitely works just it is unknown how well it works; cause everyone disperses quite a fair bit of particles whenever they talk.

Think of it as herd prevention as opposed to herd immunity, if everyone plays a part the risks can be reduced overall. And like herd immunity the effectiveness drops significantly if mask wearing isn't being observed by everyone.

This doesn't work so well in western countries as culturally people don't like to be "controlled" or told what to do by the government cause it isn't "democratic" and is somehow of more importance than being logical.
