No, the posters like a “breath of fresh air”, meaning athletes sticking to tennis instead of using social justice politics to shine a light on themselves.

So who’s doing that on here? You must be talking about a certain tennis player.

Do not like politics being brought into sports. Making the case for that.

”If I need to endure a partial curfew” ( just call it a curfew) “ to save the lives of the elderly.. .I will gladly do so”

Did those elderly people ask you to do so?

Is that their idea … or is it yours?

I think this poor woman’s baby died BECAUSE of the strict red tape protocol generated by Covid fear. And the “not enough beds” song constantly repeated because of overly strict Covid protocol.

Exactly. No efforts towards more bed capacity. No efforts to recruitment and training of staff.

And no effort to treatment drugs so people can home medicate after consultation with a doctor!

I thought this would make it easy, but the comments seem to indicate it isn’t.

I bought an LG phone from AU two years ago. I thought they unlocked it but when I took it to Thailand, they told me in Thailand, “No, it’s still locked”.

Don’t want that to happen again. Any tips? Thanks much.

Treatment drugs so a sick person can stay home with loved ones.

No treatment drugs - hospitalized and maybe never see your loved ones again.

I’ve always said - treatment drugs!

Posted in: Tens of thousands urged to evacuate as heavy rain hits western Japan See in context

I’m happy because only rains can break the awful heat of Kansai in summer.

Sometimes a rain breaks the heat around Obon, or just after. But I’ve never seen such an extended case as like this time.

Anyway, hope there are no disasters - and enjoy the relatively cool break. Because it’ll get hot again.

Posted in: 84 COVID-19 patients died at home in Japan over 6 months: gov't See in context

Actually - in a quite recent article in the Yomiuri - it was acknowledged in a quite positive report on a drug used on Trump way back when he was hospitalized ( and quickly recovered) from Covid. This recent acknowledgement was hidden away in a small article, fourth paragraph because - heavens - no mainstream media would ever want to be caught saying Trump was right about something, even if lives could be saved.

And, please. Spare me that lie that Trump suggested some sink cleanser or whatever. I’m talking about the drug administered to him in the hospital, to which he talked positively - and for which he was shut down.

It’s interesting that there’s always been this reluctance to try treatment drugs - even ones that could be self-administered at home. Considering, I mean, that there was no reluctance to “try” vaccines.

I hope this is “On topic”. (It’s the only update news this morning on the virus)

Is it possible that vaccines have pushed the virus to producing the variants? The variants have seemed to have been coming into being with the timing of vaccines being in high numbers.

What do people here think?

By the way, I ask this as a person who is already fully vaccinated.

I do concede this is not a fact. A person could be visiting paid for services with a vengeful motive etc. My only point was that the sexual deprivation motive could be diminished.

It’s terrible about the case you mention.

Yes. The simple fact is that if such men had had a sexual outlet with a woman - paid or otherwise - they would not have reached the boiling point of committing such an act. That’s just the fact.

So, one has to ask oneself where is one’s concern - compassion for the victims or scornful hatred of the assailant.

I wonder why people on here can have such sympathy for people who have physical sicknesses but only rage and hate for those who are mentally sick. If people are sick, they should be helped, no matter whether physical or mental.

Posted in: Thailand tightens restrictions as daily virus cases top 10,000 See in context

Thailand should be peaking soon. Then gradually go back down, as what happened in India. They all go down eventually and settle into the grey zone: another country with ongoing virus that has to live with it. Every country is going to be the same - that is, just accepting that it’ll be there, but that they have to get back to life as normal. More and more countries will do so. Just as many of us knew they eventually would.

Yeah, I’ve seen how your country fights so hard - like a policewoman giving a violation ticket to a couple removing their masks as they exit - as they EXIT - a store. Police roughing up people there all the time over Covid, supposed mask violations.

How many more lockdowns when a few cases pop up? 15? 20?.

Your attempt to describe Australia as mateship is strange. Mateship is what it once was. They were taken over by feminism long ago.
