@Lt. Winters you're on a website called Japantoday with an article about sumo and COVID, why would people need to comment about another country.

It is in their Terms when you sign up. Unless you are paid by the service, otherwise just deal with it.

Republicans were the cause why it gotten so login the first place.
Probably just making use of this to get political gains for Georgia.

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.

I wonder if dollar is really the go to currency as the likelihood of debt defaulters in the US is probably going to keep increasing for some time.

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.

Do note that reduction of viral particles also means reduction in viral load which can give the body more chance to better response should an infection happen.

It is a sad and tragic mistake, don't forget that the drivers are only human and can make mistakes.
Imagine this incident haunting him for the rest of his life.

Rings overlapping signifies the lack of social distancing.

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.
But for a low risk employee it seems excessive, don't let fear take control of your life.

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.

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.

I wonder if there's no other photos available, the ones showing thumbs up don't seem very appropriate.
-1 ( +1 / -2 )
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.

@blahblah222 oh and the testing process and criteria
I don't know what you mean by access to testing, but if you are fine then what's the point of testing?
-1 ( +2 / -3 )
@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.
-1 ( +2 / -3 )
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.

I wonder why people are against him, he's basically contributing money for human welfare without anything in return.
While some contributions have went into the wrong places it is hard to control organisations he don't actually own.
Just ask yourself this, do you check whether every service or product you spend money on is managed ethically and sustainably?
If no, then what right do you have to blame him.

Part of the problem is that a large group of people still do not put money in the bank and keeps large amounts of cash at home.
If the money is kept in the bank, the teller usually will flag it out when a sudden large sum withdrawal is being made. Also ATM withdrawals will likely be very difficult for such large sums due to limits.
I'm not saying that this case is the same but sometimes you need to put your trust somewhere for your own protection.
