Social media moves so fast that people want to demolish you before you even have the opportunity to grow

Opportunity to grow? He's a grown man and this happened like within a week ago.

Passenger is at fault too. If I was a passenger in a vehicle and the driver caused an accident, there is no way I am letting him leave no matter what type of hurry I'm in.

I saw the news this morning of Tokyo people packing highways heading to beaches in Chiba and Shizuoka. Of course the beaches, parking spots and all of the shops near them were open.

Posted in: Anger mounts as Biden, Congress allow eviction ban to expire See in context

You missed the parts where it says most democrats were "blindsided" and angry about what Biden did.

You have to be "blindsided" and "angry" to gain points for the midterms.

Jacobs was the only one also that held his position after the false start. All of the other runners started running after Hughes. He kept his focus while others had their nerves messed with Good job! I do miss Usain Bolt though.

I am not sure if all schools do this but my kids' kindergarten teachers does a roll call once school starts. If someone is not present and haven't called in, they call the parents to make sure things are ok. It wouldn't take 9 hours to do that.

Posted in: New York's Broadway mandates vaccines, masks for all shows See in context

A low percentage of Blacks and Hispanics have received the vaccine compared to white people. All of the celebrities screaming for social justice last year don't say a word about people getting the vaccine for a virus that has a disproportionate amount of Black people. Why?

Posted in: Olympic gymnastics champ Hashimoto responds to scoring criticism See in context

I have watched team several events involving China. How come they are able to have stands with many noisy "staff members" screaming and cheering for them? Perhaps they should be thankful for being allowed to bend the rules instead of complaining constantly.

Posted in: Hong Kong police investigate Olympic chants, China anthem booing See in context

You might be right if the anti-democracy pro-authoritarian extreme right wingers around the globe are able to take even greater control.

Especially those who act like they are pro-democracy but show zero support for smaller countries whose citizens want democracy instead of the communist regime running their country.

for god's sake, stop with this rhetoric, you don't compare same systems, Japan has never been exhaustive and transparent with covid data

Neither has China but have never heard you or most others blame them for starting all of this.

Posted in: 5-year-old boy dies after being left unattended in school bus for hours See in context

Didn't this happen a year or two ago? It seems like all schools/school bus drivers would have learned from this. This could put the school's business in jeopardy as it did with the nursery school that the child died in the pool. Safety should be the primary concern.

Posted in: Frenchman in Tokyo ends hunger strike over his 'abducted' children See in context

By the way, does this guy know where his kids are? Easy to hide in Japan, but hiring someone can do a lot of good in a search effort.

Then after he finds them, a squad car will be ready to pick him up.

Posted in: Olympic champ Biles withdraws from all-around competition See in context

The GOAT never quits.

Gotta take a look at 2 GOATs: Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt. Michael Phelps still went out and competed for a silver though he had slowed down a bit in 2016. Usain Bolt still ran in the 2017 World Championships though he got 2nd in the individual race. He still went out in the relay and tore his hamstring. MJ played with the flu and Kobe played several times with a broken finger, torn ligament, achilles and back spasms.

she gets special treatment like others due to her activist politics, its that simple.

Besides that, up until now the U.S. has 29 medals which includes 10 Golds. Where is the outpouring of congratulatory messages from celebrities and the White House for those winners?

Posted in: Japan beats U.S. to win softball gold See in context

I was in attendance for the Japan vs USA final in 2008 in Beijing. Even though I was surrounded mostly American fans, I had mixed feelings at that time too. Cheer for my native country or the one I live in. I stayed neutral. Results look like a repeat of 2008 too. Japan lost 1 and U.S. swept on way to the final.

Posted in: Japan upsets China for table tennis mixed doubles gold See in context

I regret changing the channel last night after the lost the first 2 sets. I changed it to Japan basketball to watch them lose to Spain. Then changed to Japan handball to watch them lose to Sweden. I should have been watching this.

Posted in: Japan's Horigome wins first ever Olympic skateboard gold See in context

I know that Skateboarding was one of the harder to get tickets for all events. Looking at the stands with no shade in sight surrounded by concrete would have kept paramedics busy. This was a fun event though and happy that NHK broadcasted it til the end.

Posted in: Beach volleyball match canceled after Czech player tests positive for COVID See in context

According to media reports they were both fully vaccinated.

Saying the vaccine is dangerous and saying not to planning to get it: misinformation

Saying someone got the vaccine but got the coronavirus anyways: misinformation to the 2nd degree and face possible lifetime ban and cancellation

So I guess the Olympic Village is the autonomous zone of Tokyo. Maybe those trying to get refugee status in Japan should go here instead of wasting their time with Japan officials.

I would be happy to see another deserved defeat of the republican museum..

Not with candidates you have like Gavin Newsom you aren't.

Catlyyn is a transgender who wants to deny the basic rights to other transgenders!!!

It doesn't take a scientist to know that it is unfair for a person born as a man to compete in women sports. If Jenner had a "D" next to his name, you would quickly change your tune.

So he is the front runner. Strange this long article never mentions Dems doing this to him illegally.

Larry Elder would be awesome.

Posted in: Suga, wife have dinner with Jill Biden See in context

eating with an educated, intelligent, decent and caring person from the White House is a very pleasant thing,

Unless she is working in the ER, none of those words describe a person going to a country in the middle of a pandemic with some of the highest number of cases of the year. She can wine and dine while the rest of the city suffers.

Dr Jill can maybe give some advice on how to solve the pandemic issues.

Which she can do from afar, not right in the middle of Tokyo with some of the highest number of cases of the year. It doesn't take a doctor to know this.

"It is not easy to organize the Games while implementing full anti-infection measures. I express my deep respect for your efforts," the emperor told Bach.

Click-bait title. Just when you think he thought he disapproved of the Games, he actually said he respected their work.
