The reality is that if you keep suddenly pulling out of tournaments, thus slewing schedules, you are less likely to get invited to events. You also encourage other players/athletes to act similarly.

Quote: Another AP journalist heard police yelling “shooter.”

But the guy used a knife. The only shooting came from the police. And that is how misinformation can lead to more confusion and casualties.

Fantastic match last night. You could feel the quality of Spain, and of Japan who stood up to them. Both sides will have risen in the world's estimation.

Thank goodness Spain finally saved this game from falling into another idiotic PK shootout.

Posted in: Toyota launches new Land Cruiser with beefed-up car security See in context

I know certain models are stolen in Tokyo and Nagoya for example, for illegal shipment abroad, but cars in Japan generally do not have or need those aftermarket safety features like alarms etc. that you find in the West.

Thus my question above. Are Toyota thinking of the export market here, or sadly Japan’s modern domestic market, or both?

Is the security for domestic or export cars I wonder?

But surely testing does not work!

If it did, then Japan would be making testing available to their population, surely! (No?)

Yes, well done indeed. Tottori will be uber proud of their Golden Girl!!!

(She certainly didn't 'sweep aside' her opponent. Nesthy fought really well, and there was an awful moment as we waited to hear the results. Could have gone either way.)

Posted in: Sex trafficking isn't what you think See in context

I thought this article would be about the far worse world-wide sex trafficking problem.

It is confined only to the USA, though, disappointingly light and narrow-focus.

The reign of fear spreads as the authorities start to move back in time before these new laws were promulgated.

Moving goalposts, much.

Clever calculation, though, starting with a protestor who drove a motorbike at three cops. Watch for world reaction, see little, then move on to softer targets.

Formula E cars regularly finish the race with 0% battery charge.

Maybe time to revisit that F1 remaining fuel rule.(?)

I had a look around the internet as the article does not explain what an X gesture means. Just a generic “No”…?

Finally giving up.

Motor Racing

Everything thrown up in the air, and Lady Luck takes a prominent role. Fantastic race from Lewis, again, but Max was stuck in a damaged car.

Great for Ocon, Alonso and the whole Alpine team.

Who knows? It's in the lap of the gods. Max has the right tyres/tires for one of his rocket starts. That first corner should be interesting.

Posted in: Did you watch any of the first week of the Tokyo Olympics on TV? If so, did you find that it helped take your mind off the coronavirus? See in context

Yes and yes here. Some of it is rubbish, but picking and choosing I have found some really entertaining events. Sadly they have not covered some of the events that my wife watches abroad on a non-Japanese feed.

There is no guarantee that Max would have won if he had not crashed out. Anything could have happened.

A five-second penalty would have fitted with previous such penalties awarded in recent races, but given the anger of Christian Horner, the stewards doubled it to make sure.

On the positive side, Red Bull has got a lot of free publicity as the stakes have been ramped up.

Not a Judo fan here and the rules are pretty arcane to me, but some of these bouts have been fascinating to watch. Congratulations to the right rock-solid medal winners.

You could see how much this meant to Aaron Wolf. Brilliant. And a few days ago I didn’t even know he existed…

This was a human story. Maybe it is time for the BBC to show China that they are making an effort to be sympathetic and impartial rather than simply critical.
