Posted in: Olympics must go ahead next year as symbol of overcoming COVID-19, Koike says See in context

What is it when politicians constantly dangle some flashy side show piece of entertainment in front of the jobless electorate whilst jobs are being cut and people are living in shelters?

In context, the Olympics is just a wasteful extravaganza...

The military don’t wear masks in many cases due to cultural norms or because masks don’t allow effective communication.

More cases are coming ...

Hundreds of infections in Japanese hospitals and nursing homes-that is doing a good job?

Shutting down the economy and people can’t pay their rents and buy food?

Definitely a bad job!

Posted in: Half million Hong Kong people vote in pro-democracy primaries See in context

On Thursday, constitutional and mainland affairs minister Erick Tsang warned that those "organizing, planning and participating" in the primary might commit offenses of succession, subversion and colluding with foreign forces under the new security law, according to interviews given to a select few pro-Beijing newspapers.

Erick Tsang should admit that the security law is aimed at tramping down on the freedoms of the Hong Kong people!

Err, no, there are many more than ‘a few’ cases of the virus in Japan.

Posted in: War over words: U.S. Scrabble leader overrules panel to ban slurs See in context

What happens if a black person uses the epithet?

Is that allowable?

They often do with a high level of frequency!

Should we ban country names in Africa or Latin translations for black as having similarities with epithets?

And where does the censorship end?

Posted in: If you got tested today for the coronavirus and the result turns out negative, that doesn’t mean you won’t get it next week. So should people be tested regularly? See in context

The presence of Covid-19 RNA in ones blood means infection which together with flu symptoms could mean that treatment is necessary ie hospitalisation.

The antibody test would confirm the presence of antibodies meaning that you have had it and have had no symptoms or that cough that was perhaps present in April was the virus.

It depends on which ‘test’ is taken.

For international travel, involving the crossing of borders then surely testing before and after travel is necessary?

Imagine legally being able to grow a herb in your own garden or kitchen that can sort out chronic pain and can relax and rid a body of stress?
