So, they are lowering the testing to lower the number of infections.

Japan likes playing with those numbers!

@Yrral

He has no legal authority to work in America, the Princess has no legal rights either, it hard for an American to get a marriage visa for his fiancee.

He could be sponsored by his law firm. Tons of foreigners some to the US for school and get jobs after graduating allowing them to stay. Just look at the tech industry. The princess could come on her own then get married in the US. Ones ability to get a visa also depends on the country they are from.

There are too many factors for you to know how it would play out.

Remember Abe used a "tummy ache" as an excuse to step down.

Now the prosecutors basically telling the public that they are going to let him go, so he can run for Prime Minister again because they are all friends, and they need to pretend that they are not all corrupt.

The J-gov is truly pathetic, incompetent, and corrupt!!!

First, I would check to see if they are cooking the books.

Second, I would check to see if this potential profit has been created by the government interventing to protect itself and Nissan from anymore probes by disgruntle investors because of their scandals by the Japanese leadership.

Both the corrupt J-gov and the Nissan J-leadership have been exposed.

Good for you (really, no snark). Watch out for the side effects. Friend of mine, through work, got the second Moderna shot, and he said the next day he was like a zombie. Fever, aches and pains...of course that means the vaccine's working.

Thanks, I have heard something similar.

Numan - just to amuse you:

https://www.capitalfm.com/artists/beyonce-knowles/news/bob-fosse-single-ladies-dance/

LOL! The ole reverse racism defense that always falls short under any real scrutiny.

You obviously did not read the article. The article says:

You can clearly see Fosse's inspiration on the Beyoncé masterpiece and whilst the whole thing isn't completely a direct rip off of Fosse's work, Bey has spoken about his influence on her.

> [Beyonce] previously said, "I saw on YouTube these three ladies and one of them is Bob Fosse's wife, who's this choreographer, doing 'Walk It Out' [the dance move]. They put 'Walk It Out' to the music - it's from like the sixties. It's one take and it's black and white."

> "I thought 'wow how amazing would that be now', because videos have so many different cuts and different takes. Just to see a non-stop dance video, on take all the way through, very simple, it was the most tiring thing I've ever done in my life."

LOL! Oh, my........try again!

Any real evidence?

The CDC is now following the science and research instead of egotistical maniac/dictator wannabe who threatened to fire anybody who told the truth about the severity of the pandemic because they only wanted to get re-elected. The trump supporting uninformed are ruining the US recovery.

The vaccine will not make anyone immune to the virus. The vaccine reduces the severity of the symptoms or complications. The vaccine makes people asymptomatic hopefully. It means you get infected, but it will not harm you which also means that it can still be passed on to the unvaccinated. Therefore, vaccinated people can still test positive. It also depend on the timing of the infection. If you get your first shot then get infected while waiting 3 weeks, you will still test positive after receiving your second dose. Exactly like many Japan residents that only have the first shot and may not get their second within a reasonable amount of time.

That is why people are encouraged to wear masks.

Biles has a very close relationship with her family. She is used to always competing with her family there for support.

Maybe the isolation was too much for her during such a stressful competition.

You write this like it's only whites stealing from BLACKS. That in itself is a one sided, racist representation.

Jill Vasbinder is a professor in the Dance department at University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

That description itself tells me all I need to know about the goal of this article.

Provide real examples where Black Americans stole White American inventions and ideas pretended they had no part of it and profited off it.

Posted in: With first posthumous album, Prince pierces the American condition See in context

Was Never a Prince fan by any stretch of the imagination. Never knew what the hype was. He definitely was talented and that can’t be understated, but I also didn’t like how he was as a person towards other musicians especially the ones closest to him. He wasn’t charming and definitely shrewd and cutthroat, which vilified him but also epitomized him as a savvy businessman as well, which is what you need to be if you want to survive in the industry.

Like most who knew nothing about him, Prince was a great humanitarian who did not brag about his work!

Eric Clapton spoke personally about Prince two days after his passing.

I'm so sad about the death of Prince," he wrote on Facebook. He was a true genius, and a huge inspiration for me, in a very real way. In the the '80s, I was out on the road in a massive downward spiral with drink and drugs. I saw Purple Rain in a cinema in Canada, I had no idea who he was, it was like a bolt of lightning! In the middle of my depression, and the dreadful state of the music culture at that time it gave me hope, he was like a light in the darkness.

He continued:

I went back to my hotel, and surrounded by empty beer cans, wrote 'Holy Mother.' I can't believe he's gone.

Clapton's words echoed what he said on a 1989 episode of the BBC's Desert Island Discs, where he shortlisted "Purple Rain" among tracks by Stevie Wonder and Muddy Waters, as well as a Puccini aria. Calling Prince a "life-saver," he added that Prince was

"a reincarnation of Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix and James Brown in one. I thought that’s exactly what the world needed.”

Prince was the best musician of an entire generation!

@lolwut

Is it false? I really don't know. Apparently the US gymnast that became infected was vaccinated. I don't know when, but that seems not so promising.

The vaccine will not make anyone immune to the virus. The vaccine reduces the severity of the symptoms or complications. The vaccine makes people asymptomatic hopefully. It means you get infected, but it will not harm you which also means that it can still be passed on to the unvaccinated. Therefore, vaccinated people can still test positive.

current vaccines don't protect from Delta variation (neither will do from Epsilon, Beta, Gamma, Theta and so on)

That is totally false statement.

By the way, the "Lambda variant" has just been spotted in the US.

@Akula

These numbers are concerning, however the fact that such a number is being reported at this very time gives a lie to the conspiracy theorists on this site that think Japan is manipulating the numbers and who want everyone in Japan to get the virus.

Actually, it does not.

Since the international community, the press, and the IOC are now on the scene, the j-government has to be more transparent about testing because the world is watching.

The same reason they attempted to vaccinate the entire country two months before the Olympics. It is all for show.

For the past year, J-government have been purposely reducing the number of tests available, not allowing contact tracing, and disqualifying certain infections from being counted to keep the numbers low to go ahead with the Olympics.

Now that the Olympics are here, the numbers are being more accurately counted.

The press is everywhere!

Yesterday in Yoyogi, I saw foreigners who are members of one of the Olympic teams. They were all wearing the badges around their neck and the same shirts. The definitely looked like athletes or at least some were coaches.

Of course, they were of European descent, so police would not bother even if they were breaking the law or planning on leaving the team most of the time.

No laws have been broken unless you can arrest someone for intent on breaking a law without actually doing it.

Technically, they could hold him with their well-known 23 kidnapping procedure and continue to extend it until the visa expires then deport him.

@Bass4funk

That’s exactly right and those questions are not going to stop because the left and the media refuse to ask the man anything.

The problem with Fauci is, he’s not used to being tackled with opposing questions, he’s used to everyone else just saying yes and obeying all of his medical analysis without question. Paul as a doctor a surgeon and a conservative libertarian is not afraid to go head to head with Fauci to question him on the growing concerns about the growing side effects of the vaccine and good con him.

Evidence please!!!

Posted in: Fauci, Republican U.S. Senator Paul clash over COVID See in context

@Wolfpack

Fauci flatly denied that there was any possibility that the covid virus was man made and/or leaked from the Wuhan Lab. On what evidence he made that now debunked assertion he will not say. Fauci was wrong to say that people didn’t need masks at the beginning of the pandemic- but he won’t tell us what science he based this decision on. Now we know that wearing a mask at the beginning of the pandemic was critical to stem the spread.

Fauci is involved in funding viral research at the Wuhan Lab. Given his past errors an investigation into his activities with the Wuhan lab and his obfuscation and misleading statements is called for.

More unverifiable false information being spread for the sake of conversation!

Try again!

Posted in: Xiaomi grabs number two spot in surging smartphone market: survey See in context

@Nishikat

NEC Laptops? They are owned by Lenovo now. Also, China could put in an undetectable rootkit in iPhone then all your info goes to the Chinese servers. Are iPhones really safe? And also Fujitsu and NEC PCs are owned by the Chinese now.

Undetectable "rootkits" on Apple phones would require a zero-day vulnerability, and these vulnerabilities can be worth $1 million or more on the open market. Companies like Zerodium will purchase them, but widespread use of such vulnerabilities “burns” them, making it more likely that Apple will learn of their existence and apply fixes.

Every time you update your Apple software it automatically deletes the hack, virus, or "rootkit". There ecosystem make hacks almost nonexistent.

So the conversation is about Apple, but Nishikat keeps talking about PCs as evidence.

Talk about "red herrings".

@Antiquesaving

My appointment was cancelled by my ward as they could not guarantee they could give me my second dose in late August.

I got on several waiting list and got Moderna on Friday.

For now my wife's appointment is still a go.

My son's company had their vaccine program cancelled as no vaccine was available.

So he tried as soon as his age group was available to book in our ward. No more appointments for anyone!

So we tried the same thing I did calling all the places individually to get him on a waiting list.

No go they refused saying he is young, even trying to explain he has certain chronic medical issues and we have proof, it was still NO.

If anyone knows where he can go it would be appreciated.

Basically, everything that I said two weeks that you doubted is correct!

Thanks for the confirmation!
