Posted in: 5 South Koreans die after getting flu shots, sparking vaccine fears See in context

My family has the flu vaccine every year including since my kids are babies. Never had any issue apart from a minor pain on the injection area in the arm when pressing on it. Just got it 2 weeks ago this year.

According to the doctor you may have a bit higher reaction the first time, but I cannot even remember any of that.

Disclaimer: Just on a funny side without any intent to hurt anyone feeling.

But can you imagine Suga-san with a face mask representing the Japanese flag like Pompeo?

(would fit POTUS probably better actually)

Posted in: Trump backpedals over failure to denounce white supremacist groups; Biden calls him 'embarrassment' See in context

President Trump unfortunately missed his opportunity to condemn the white supremacists being the democrat's creation, the KKK.

Stuck in the past and denying current reality. Hopeless!

Trump is using the old well known tactic of the crystal ball readers: he tells everything and its contrary so that he and his devots can claim he is always right.

People cannot survive without conspiracy theories, or am I missing something?

All serious scientific articles say it cannot be a man made coronavirus.

Give 30% of the road to the bikes and 20% to the pedestrians!

The plage is the cars not the soft and green mobility.

Posted in: Japan to ease entry ban to allow long-term stays from Oct 1, but not tourists See in context

I really feel bad for residents in Japan who have not been allowed to enter back into their country of residency so far.

People canlegally have only ONE residency place. How can they have been rejected this way?

I am deeply speechless!

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic committee sent over ¥1.1 bil overseas during bid See in context

Firstly: this should be in the crime section.

Secondly: you don't get the Olympic games with such a low bribe scheme. It is much, much bigger than that.

10% is very much in line with many surveys done worldwide (you can google).

By reading some of the above comments you can easily understand why many LGBT do not want to come out...!

Jennifer Griffin is doing her journalist job: cross-checking info and protecting her sources as simple as that.

Posted in: China's fishing suspension near disputed islands in East China Sea ends See in context

Is China starving to send army boats to supports fishing?

Or is it for $$$$ making?

Or maybe just for bullying fun?

Posted in: ACCJ urges Japan to end 'double standard' re-entry rules See in context

Japan has just no understanding of the meaning of a legal residence by international standards.

Even though thousands of Japanese expatriates enjoy it while leaving abroad.

Japan cannot make the difference between residence and citizenship. So shameful.

I never understand that "Lockdown" thing. 

Lockdowns don't work. You can see all over the world, that after Lockdowns, the life starts to go back to normal, the Virus also starts to spread.

Shall I laugh or cry?

Acknowledging history does not mean rewriting it.

But it requires self-reflection and sometimes this exercise hurts. This is the only way to grow.

I fully defend HK freedom and hate the PCC intervention but don't be fooled, HK is a properous city only for a happy few. This is one the most unequal society in the world.

The super wealthy HK people (12 families) have always been in bed with Beijing to secure their big share of the cake.

As long as you do not "click" on adds you remain somewhat transparent and can still hurt FB while keeping in touch with your friends around the globe.

Of course FB still generate big data with any activities you have but that the price to pay.

Posted in: Traffic law to punish tailgating to go into effect Tuesday See in context

Germany has this law since at least 20 years.

I cannot recall exactlty how it works, but radar measure the time gap between the tailgater and the car in front.

So it is not a fixed distance but in relation to the speed.

And Germany still has most of its highway witout any speed limit.

I find that a very wise measure to reduce accident and due to road rage by selfish drivers.
