Posted in: EU ministers to study call for ban on Russian tourists See in context

I'm from the EU. We have become a victim of the duel between the USA and Russia, and while we're at it, let's sink the EU economy and standards a little more. The USA is once again solving its financial crisis at foreign expense, but this time in a more sophisticated way. I have no words for the puppet European leaders. Hello cold winter.

Posted in: Japan reports 166,205 coronavirus cases; 23,511 in Tokyo See in context

As I see, the topic of the posts is about vaccination and its effect. Let me tell you about my experience. Somehow half of my acquaintances are vaccinated and half are not. I'm not vaccinated either. We all got over covid. I was infected by a vaccinated person. This person recovered with a slightly more severe course. Younger than me. That's how it is.

However, how much vaccination helps, based on the daily number of new infections, should be evaluated by each individual.

When you leave one supplier, you turn to another. Usually more expensive. How suitable for a blue-red donkey it is.

Posted in: 70 Japanese volunteer to fight for Ukraine against Russia See in context

So the Russians invaded Ukraine, without any resistance from the Ukrainian army. And with all the media pomp what a patriotic spirit they have? Do not say that the Ukrainian army does not have the equipment to fight. It is just a sign that someones interest is that the war will drag on, people will suffer, and some will get very rich. You can read Yenki like a book.

@theResident: After all, I don’t care what version it was. At infection with omicron you were not supposed to lose the taste and smell, which I did for one week, delta was also possible.

@theResident: Ha! You asked the right question. The official PCR test was positive. You convinced me to go for an antibody test (20 €). If the antibodies turn out not to be present, well....., then we can imagine what a charade it is all together. Stay well!

I overcame omicron myself (mild cold). I'm unvaccinated. 70% of vaccinated co-workers fell ill, some of them with quite problems.

As it says in article if you are vaccinated three times you do not need quarantine? Is this a candy because you have met the quota for manufacturer? Because otherwise such measures are simply ridiculous.

Great news.

The knowledge and will to do such things has been around for at least a decade. In the coming decades, this technology will prevail. We need to understand that the oil industry and related products cannot be shut down overnight, either because of profits or jobs that are not negligible.

According to the latest information from the WHO, the covid pandemic will be declared an endemic. Also according to the WHO, vaccination with booster doses is an unacceptable long term strategy. Hallelujah.

To think about.

If those who have not been vaccinated find that they are wrong, they have a plan B available: They get vaccinated. However, it gets a little complicated in vaccinated people.

They were sacrificed for higher sinister goals.

Japanese intelligence officer Takeo Yoshikawa has obtained full details of the U.S. fleet at the port. But the Americans didn’t know that almost the entire Japanese navy had left their ports?

However, as with most commentators, I agree that this is a thing of the past. After all, war is bad.

A friend wonders how it is that there has been no collapse of the health care system in Africa. No media pomp either. Do people from Africa:

have 100% vaccination coverage
