Posted in: Amazon drops New York headquarters plan amid protests See in context

ran into fierce opposition from some local politicians and community activists, including newly elected Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose district borders the New York site.

this Ocasio-Cortez has the potential to be America’s Maduro, she advocates for the same train on thought that has plagued Latin America: bolivarian economics (as seen in Cuba/Venezuela/Bolívia), Che-Guevara’s societal doctrination, where everyone loses but her and her partners. NY losing 25,000 jobs because of a small group of Democrats, wake up America!!!

Did she actually mean to use that word? If so, what does she mean?

To sublimate is used in a religious sense, meaning that one is consciously dominating his/her feelings.

Posted in: Apple cuts forecast, citing weak China sales amid trade tensions See in context

Apple is partially to be blamed. While the X line is superb, its average price is out of touch with reality. I have an iPhone 7, which works perfectly. When I tried an XR I wanted to upgrade instantly, but then I realized that the XR costs twice the price I paid for the 7. I think many Apple customers have done the same calculation. Hope in 2019, Apple revises its price policies. It’s hurting the company badly.

Worse than these illegals thinking, and trying, trying fo invade USA, are the Americans who think they have a right to invade their country.

Posted in: Trump's media relationship frays more: CNN reporter's press pass suspended See in context

I don't understand why Trump take questions sessions like this. It is clear that American media, led by CNN has an agenda of portraying anyone in the WH as a criminal with a blank check, as long as they are Republicans. Trump doesn't need this sort of aggression from leftwing journalists, who choose words carefully to make a case against him. The exchange about illegal immigrants makes it clear. CNN stinks.

Put the blame on these jerks who keep voting for the left in Latin America. Also, the Democrats have a good share of this, for their steady support to the likes of Maduro, Morales. It was Obama who said proudly to now incarcerated for corruption Lula “you are THE guy”, a sentence that many took as a blank check US handed to the corrupt former President

Posted in: Here today, ghosting tomorrow — workers just disappear See in context

I have a modern one: One day a transvestite submitted for a position in our bar. As an open minded business, we decided to hire her after a training period (like which wine goes well with what dish). She was happy and the day she was to start to a full house, she never appeared. She shunned us every way possible. Much later we learnt she said to other staff she was feeling shy. Then one night I saw her selling herself on the streets. Was shy for a bar, but not not for prostitution.

POTUS Trump undeniably has a winning hand on trade in favor of Americans and fairer deals. That’s what matters, in the end. The American Way Of Life is based on good economy, on good administrations.

Congratulations on such an important research. As for the literature prize, it will take years to recover from the fiascos of Bob Dylan and the in-house sexual imbróglio.

Her refusal to testify under oath speaks volumes about her and the Democrats. She is lying. Probably had a derailed crush when they were younger. Democrats want damage at any cost. That’s it.

Posted in: Apple iPhones get bigger and pricier; Watch turns to health See in context

The XR definitely will be a hit. Time to upgrade from my iPhone 7. Two things: when Samsung launches a new model, Samsung users don’t even bother to comment. But they do comment on Apple, angrily. I call it “inferiority syndrome”. Two: according to some posters here, Apple should never upgrade design and software. I call it “the obsolete syndrome”

The world has to stop perceiving US as a customer who doesn’t have things to sell too, in order to make a living. Trump is quite right on this.

Posted in: Uber launches taxi-hailing app in Nagoya See in context

Uber works great and is very popular in countries where taxi services are expensive and of poor quality. Here in Brazil, an Uber ride costs one-third of a regular taxi. Wonder how cheaper it would be in comparison to the excellent Japanese taxi services

Posted in: Police step up search for missing French woman in Nikko See in context

Coincidentally in the last 3 months it’s the third French person who gets lost in woods- two of them in Brazil and Japan., One, this week, was found safe and sound after 6 days. The other fell into a cravine, his body recovered after 15 days. Hope this third one is found alive and well. I don’t know this region of Japan, but isn’t it the same location where an American student disappeared some 15 years ago, without a trace?

We desperately need to get rid of one-time plastic products. People will get used to it. Just like when seatbelts were introduced or smoking was made unhealthy, users got angry in the short term, but after some time they realize it’s good and get used to it.

Stunning match. High quality football is what we saw. Now, that Mbappe guy, he's a Bolt with a ball on his feet, what an extraordinary player. Now, I am rooting for Japan. It will be THE event of this World Cup if Japan beats Belgium.

I just read in NYT that Japan is the only country outside Europe/Latin America that reached the 16 best ones. It makes the Nishino’s decision even more correct that we thought. I do hope Japan make at least the final 8. Once again, congrats to the Japanese team.

Posted in: Japan booed as it advances on yellow cards despite losing to Poland 1-0 See in context

I didn't watch the game (working time), but playing soft in the last matches, when results are known is a practice in every sport. See almighty England with just two main players against Belgium (or so I read), while Belgium itself with just one - the rest from the benches. I am quite happy that Japan is learning the ways to the next stage. It was not its fault, it belongs to the way Fifa has designed the tournament. Congrats Samurai Blue. You are doing good!! (Better than Germany, Italy, USA and South Korea lololol)
