Unless they have allergies, with all the vaccines available in the US, there's no excuse for any American not be vaccinated. Selfish and uneducated.

"Well, as I said before, Japan should have vaccinated the young as a priority."

I agree.

Why? The probability of dying from covid 19 for a young person is very low.

Because if you look at the data, the young people are spreading the virus the most, some have died, many will be left irreparably damaged, but more importantly, they are statistically killing the elderly. You can see the data here. The case loads are heavy with the young and deaths highest with elderly:

Vaxed people will get 2-3 shots a year for the rest of their lives IMO. Us, none.

Vaxed people will still have their lives.

Posted in: Japan launches study to verify COVID vaccines' effects on citizens See in context

If you did had the C-thing (with symptoms), then there is no need for you to get the vaccine. You would already be more immune than anyone who only had the vaccinations.

Wrong.

Immunity from infections last around 8 months.

Some people seem to think that foreigners won't be able to get the vaccine.

This is not true. Foreign healthcare workers and foreign residents over 65 have been/are being vaccinated.

Although I hope the games get called off, I'm happy to hear that people are getting vaccinated.

Just my opinion, and maybe wrong, but vaccination of young people would be more effective at controlling the spread.

According to Japanese news, spouses and PR will also be banned:

新たな措置では、今月14日以降にインド・ネパール・パキスタンの3か国から日本に入国する人のうち、日本の在留資格を持つ外国人の再入国を、原則、拒否します。日本人の帰国についてはこれまで通り認めますが、日本人の配偶者や永住者などは入国拒否の対象となります。

It's mNRA. It's not a virus. It tells your cells to make spike proteins. Your immune system destroys the proteins.

If you go to Myanmar you must respect their rules or pay the price.

international standards and human rights do not apply.

False. He was respecting their rules when he was working there. There was a sudden coup and he was arrested covering it. The current "leadership" is illegitimate and only ruling because they will put bullets in any one who resist, no matter gender or age. They also kidnap citizens, kill, and harvest organs, then return the bodies as a sort of terrorization.

Posted in: Man shot by police officer dies in Nagoya hospital See in context

I am not a cop, but putting a man down by the knee, if only carrying a knife sounds much more sensible to me.

I hate gun culture, so I'm not repeating the propaganda. This is simply the truth.

If someone is running towards you (with a knife), shooting in the knee would be extremely risky.

Rather than hit the knee, it is more likely to

A) miss the target and get stabbed.

B) miss the target and hit a bystander.

Given these possibilities the officer's actions cannot be faulted.

Like stabbing people while going for a walk? That kind of daily life? If it is, then he should have been locked up a long time ago!

Absolutely wrong. I work with mentally ill people. That's all I can say, but I serve them and paid by city taxes. You can't put a blanket definition stereotype and a huge population of people based on something that happened in the news.

Posted in: Suspect detained for stabbing 2 men in Saitama says he is ‘mentally ill’ See in context

That’s weird usually a mentally ill person doesn’t realize they are mentally ill, thus their behavior. To realize you are mentally ill would mean you are congregant of your actions? Two random people stabbed would seem to deflate my understanding of what constitutes mentally ill.

That's false. Pretty everyone who has a diagnosis knows about it. The struggle is in managing the symptoms when they prevent the normal carrying out of daily life.

I won't be participating in the experimental shot. I'll wait to see what happens to peoples health after the next 5 years. Good luck!

Above is a fine example of the type of "thinking" that exacerbates the pandemic.

The vaccines are not experimental as they have passed multiple stages of trials. Coronavirus vaccines have been developing for years and years.

Second, the virus is always mutating and all our bodies are potentially variant producing machines. Eventually, an airborne mutation that kills children will occur. The only way to prevent this mutation is to get everyone vaccinated as soon as possible.

Posted in: Biden tightens some gun controls; says much more needed See in context

When it comes to the 2nd amendment that the left have been trying to encroach in and dismantle bit by but is a threat to every law-abiding gun holder.

But some important and Biden Missing some things: 

IF a licensed seller sells at a gun show, there MUST be a background check. 

IF a private seller sells a non-NFA item at a gun show to another private individual, there isn't a background check.

Aren't familiar with the NFA? You shouldn't offer opinions.

You start at 2nd amendment and veer into NFA, without drawing a connection between the two.

I'm sure you're very knowledgeable of the 2A and don't need to be reminded that it is about maintaining a well-regulated militia. If anything comes close to 2A protection, its street gangs.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 545 coronavirus cases; Osaka logs 905 See in context

I realise that we’re going over old ground here, but I’ll say it again: these figures don’t make any sense. 

Yesterday: 555 cases, out of 1846 tests. 30% positivity.

Today: 545 cases out of 10826 tests. 5% positivity.

Tokyo/Kanagawa conurbation = 30 million people. Even using the low 5% stats, that’s 1.5 million in this burg with COVID.

What’s going on?

There are 2 problems with your analysis. First, you don't take into account that it's difficult/expensive to get tested, so only people with severe symptoms can get tested from their doctors. So whether the sample size is 300 or 30,000, they're only testing the X number of people who present severe symptons.

The second problem is the extrapolation. You're extrapolating 5% positivity towards the entire population, but it is a flawed approach because the original sample isn't a random sample from the general population, but a sample of people with severe symptoms.

Are you a mask police officer ?

Would you do the same in a restaurant or coffee shop ?

No, because I'm not going to restaurants. Last I checked, the train is not an eatery or cafe. People need to cover up on public transport.

I was on a packed train in Tokyo today.

I found a nice spot next to an open window where everyone had the mask above their nose.

Then in walked in this boy about 21 years old with pocky. He stood right next to me eating his pocky. I waited for him to finish. Then he took out a second pack and opened it. So I said to him, "Put your mask on in the train and you can eat later." He complied.

The variants are here. Their proteins have finger like structures that easily latch onto our cells. They build up in the upper respiratory track and can produce a higher viral load via aerosols. Please keep your nose covered.

Posted in: Nurseries, kindergartens mull how to teach issues of gender identity See in context

You can't teach what you don't understand. Hardly anyone outside of neuroscience truly understands gender.

But lucky for you, I can break it down.

In the brain's hypothalamus is a group of cells called the sexual dimorphous nuclei. The shape of these cells corresponds to one's gender identity. It's important to understand that we are our brains, not our bodies.

The shape of the SDN is influenced by exposure to hormones during prenatal development.

Next its important to understand that gender isn't just male or female, but on a spectrum. For example, the alpha male, the fem male.

So a high exposure to androgens during prenatal development can create a male gender brain regardless of XX or XY chromosomes.

Next we have to understand how males form. We all start our lives as female. This is the mullerian system that makes female part. In case of males, first a set of genes is activated to turn off the mullerian system. Then another set of genes needs to be activated to turn on the wolffian system that creates male parts. This all happens during prenatal development and epigenetic factors can cause occurrences at any step of the way resulting in a mismatch of which system developed (mullerian or wolffian) and the shape of the sexual dimorphous nuclei that tells a person whether they are male or female.

Many have already died from vaccines, but even if you survive, who knows what else they are doing to your body (autoimmune disease, allergies, autism...).

Autism is neural condition created during prenatal development. You're either born with it, or not autistic. No one can get autism from a vaccine. If you believed you could, maybe you should start questioning all of your beliefs.
