As a building owner who rents out, I can say oyattosa is absolutely correct ultimately.
that being said, there is a particular foreigner demographic (not specifically mentioned in this article) that we’ve been burned by time and time again, costing us thousands of dollars each time. We chose not to be burned again.

I wonder if there’s any correlation between the lack of general critical thinking skills in the last decade and and the lack of originality/creativity in the movie industry in the same period of time.
And both seem to be deteriorating even more quickly in the last couple of years

If wild game meat were marketed to the general public properly, I would probably buy up and consume the entire stock myself!

A sense of false security, unfortunately. Like many others I am dreaming of the day we were can walk out our doors without wearing a mask and fretting about standing on a train and worrying about if I am going to return home sick.
You don’t have to dream about that day as that is entirely up to you.
If don’t want to fret or worry, then don’t.
Like the other “many others”

And light years behind in fatalities too
I will argue that they are not. I suspect that the fatalities in other countries you are referring to has been heavily inflated.

I don’t know how true this is but I’m beginning to hear a buzz about the Japanese government actually downgrading the seriousness of omicron itself to the flu and canceling any existing state of emergency.
i’m not sure how serious to take this buzz or not but it is coming from a Japanese national I know, high up the corporate ladder (third from the top) of a decent sized company.

although this might be true for some very small ma and pop businesses which barely (or not even) have seating for that many people, the majority of places have many more potential customers than that.
the smallish Irish pub I go to (owner and wife run it with no additional staff) has counter seating for 12 (which are continuously filled) and well as ample table seating (at least 30 to 40 people). And is isn’t until after 9 when he would see the bulk of his customers.
he would make more than ¥30000 in 30 min.
this isn’t something I’m speculating. This is from the horses mouth and why he’s told me he’s deciding to stay open.
he’s got bills to pay and a child in University he is supporting as well.

my local establishment’s pints cost at least ¥1000.
If we use myself as an example (I consume about 4 pints per visit, give it take…), he would only require 7.5 customers like me.
I wouldn’t call that a cash grab for most places. At least not for the couple places I frequent.
but the couple of places I frequent have done the math and will not be closing at all. they simply can’t afford to.

As bad as some governments can be the likes of Google and Meta are, to me at least, far worse.
They are two sides of the same coin if you ask me. What/Who controls one, controls the other.
What is coming will be of no surprise to either.

A lot is missing from the story posted here
this was a two year long fight for him. he tried to get assistance through this and was rejected in the beginning
no one wanted to help him and he tried to get help
he stuck it out because he had a family to support back in Vietnam. Many of us have trouble imagining what it would like to be in a situation such as this.
don’t always assume that what is posted here is the full story.

Well, tsunami‘s are known to be caused by water displacement and if one were to look at the size of the eruption itself, I don’t think it should be surprising that a tsunami was created as a result.

Didn't someone say before if you exercise, if you are not obese, if you have no other underlying conditions you don't have to worry? Doesn't look like it!
worry about getting a cold/flu like sickness with an incredibly low risk of being in ICU, you mean? Is that what really keeps you awake at night? Really?
Well, with only 5 admitted to hospital and zero deaths, it still seems like we don’t have to worry to me…

As a father of an 18-year-old, I know exactly the kind of pressures put on children to pass these University entrance exams.
depending on the route the family takes, often these pressures begin in elementary school at grade 4 and continues right up to the University entrance exams. This undoubtably takes it’s toll.
it’s no wonder that some will crack under the pressure.
my sympathy for all involved in this case extends to this youngster as well.
anger and frustration expressed to the kid in this case I believe is misplaced and should be directed at the system in general.

The comment section here just goes to show that people are only interested in following the science that they already believe in and makes sense to them

Other than the proximity of the location, there is no indication that this was politically motivated.
I find it odd and disturbing that there are people here on both sides that seem to be frothing at the mouth to make this political.

The reason why taxes would cut GHG omissions is twofold.
1) It would make the elite richer and give them even more power
2) It would make us poorer and more dependent on the elite
anything that doesn’t include the two reasons above, would never even be considered

after looking into prop guns and guns that fire blanks, I just learned that they can be just as deadly as real guns, especially at close range.
I also learned that movie production companies have a very strict protocols when dealing with prop guns because of this. Protocols that obviously were not followed in this case

There is no other explanation except maybe some moron with his "right to bear arms"
or even more likely some moron who is “against” those rights and wanted to beat his activist drum to stir up that sediment.

Yeah, I was a little perplexed at the downloads for people suggesting there shouldn’t be live ammunition on a set…
if one uses their imagination, the only reason I can think is that it was intentional and someone wanted someone to die or sabotage the movie.

How can a prop gun be loaded with real ammunition on a movie set?
really, how is that possible? Why would there ever be real ammunition on a movie set, ever?
