Posted in: Transgender man in Japan wants switch recognized without surgery See in context

I agree with this person in that surgery should not be the determining factor. Surely there are transgender people not wanting to attach or detach bits and pieces of their bodies. They've probably gotten nervous hearing bad/botched results from others.

Posted in: Researcher sees lesson for today in tragedy of immigrants in Manchuria See in context

Good headline, this indeed is a lesson for all of us to consider. Back in the day Colonialism was a field of study - Japan as it turned out was a dollar short and a day late.

Such a gut-wrenching loss for Sweden and euphoria for Canada, after years and years of effort for these women. Thank you Tokyo and all of Japan for allowing these athletes to have these moments!

The broadcasters deliberately avoid replaying the bad falls and with some not wearing helmets, who's protecting these kids?

This article is about wearing masks OUTSIDE. Although only very limited data is provided it shows that outdoor transmission is very low. 99.9% is transmitted INDOORS. If there is more data I'd like to know about it.

Potentially good news - but what does Apple know about Nature and Forestry? More than likely these projects will be tied to supply chain security.

She isn't the first nor will she be the last to try to look good as she ages. Most people are similar in that feeling. She looks good IMO, but I say the same about Dolly Parton.

Cosport is the problem in this story. They have the audacity to still try and make money off this and think Japan is responsible for their profit - unbelievable. They've probably spent all the money on themselves already.

We find it so humorous/ridiculous to see the advertisements of Dr.s smoking in the fifties, but scowl and/or avoid so many other fifties statements that somehow carry more weight.

That was an easy and obvious decision, tougher ones are ahead. So easy to be a naysayer but if somehow Japan can pull this off, where we are now, with only 4 months to go I'll be very impressed.
