Posted in: Erratic weather fueled by climate change will worsen locust outbreaks, study finds See in context

In California a product called NOLO bait (Nosema locustae spores) is used to stop grasshopper infestations. One generation eats to virus, then dies from from the effect on its organs. If the grasshopper lays eggs, the virus destroys the eggs. If another grasshopper eats the dead one, it dies before it reproduces. The virus remains in the soil for decades. Eventually, no more grasshopper infestations. Since California doesn't experience locust infestation, it may not work, but worth a try.

This story belongs on the back page. Don't give him publicity for something that means the end of his family in retaliation.

Posted in: Chiefs, 49ers clash as Las Vegas eyes Super Bowl classic See in context

No problem!

It all points to a 49er win!

Brock Purdy # 13

49ers  4 + 9 = 13

Superbowl 58  5 + 8 = 13

Date 2/11   2 + 11 = 13

Year ‘23 (start of season)   23 -10 (10 letters in Brock Purdy name) = 13

Letters:  Brock Purdy & 3rd quarterback = 10 letters + 3 = 13

                 Quarterback + 2 years in NFL = 11 + 2 = 13

SCORING

13 + 26 + 39 + 52 = 130 final score: 49ers 13 to Chiefs 0

Or

13 + 26 + 39 + 52 = 130

{(1 x 13 = 13)   +  (2 x 13 = 26)   +  (3 x 13 = 39)  +( 4 x 13 =52)  = 130 } 

 Divide 130 by the total 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10   (4 Quarters in a game)

Or the 10 letters in Brock Purdy :

13 for the 49ers and zero for the Chiefs

Or

7 for TD & PAT + 6 for TD = 13 

49ers 13 to Chiefs 0; 7 for 49ers to 6 for Chiefs

Do you feel like you had a concussion?

13 is an unlucky number?

Brock Purdy # 13

49ers  4 + 9 = 13

Superbowl 58  5 + 8 = 13

Date 2/11   2 + 11 = 13

Year ‘23 (start of season)   23 -10 (10 letters in Brock Purdy name) = 13

Letters:  Brock Purdy & 3rd quarterback = 10 letters + 3 = 13

                 Quarterback + 2 years in NFL = 11 + 2 = 13

It would be helpful if his warnings were buried in "other news" rather than on the front page. He operates on "Bad publicity is better than no publicity."

Just keep walking in a straight line. Stop and hold your ground. When almost face to face, yell very loudly and step aside. Safety is the major concern.

California high schools started blood donation days for 16 year old students with parent permission and 17 or older four times a year. Competition is organized for clubs and sports teams by student government. Certificates are awarded for quantities (one gallon.) It has been a success for 30 years.

Posted in: Japan to OK train fare hikes for holidays, weekends due to 'overtourism' concerns See in context

It was said circa 260 BC in a Aesop fable, "Careful what you wish for." Tourism was stimulated by the government and the Japanese and foreigners responded. Plus the exchange rate is 149.7 yen to $1.00 USD. Wonderful.

There is a need for a city bus that starts at the train station and goes directly to the most popular tourist attractions. This will take the tourists off the city bus at stops at every bus stop leaving more space for locals.

Japan needs to cancel the MySOS app and replace it with a simplified one modeled after the USA's ESTA procedures that have been used for at least two decades. It should be accepted at immigration as an app or on paper. https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/

Posted in: Japan grounds Ospreys after U.S. Air Force safety concerns See in context

It is not a matter of beauty, IT ALL ABOUT SAFETY. This aircraft was falling out of the sky in an east coast state before they were sent to Okinawa a few years ago. Safety was a concern that the civilian population had at that time. Perhaps the engineers can redesign it for more safety, but not for its looks.

If I remember my high school French/English grammar correctly, no mercy means means without mercy. If it is no, (notice the comma?) mercy, it means "we" do not want it. It is no, thank you as if you are offered natto.

Vietnam now requires ONLY a valid passport to enter the country. Is there any possibility of Japan only requiring a valid passport and vaccination proof? The visa requirement is cumbersome and the directions are confusing.

Didn't Russia announce a vaccine before Pfizer and didn't Putin's daughter take the Russian vaccine? Maybe it was a false report on August 11, 2020? Maybe it works, no mention of her health condition.

A hidden message says the new gas pipeline could quickly be shut off to EU. Nobody is saying it will happen, just a possibility. The calendar predicts a cold winter. in the EU; -11 C by the end of January in some countries.
