Again, you clearly can’t differentiate between pure streaming and cable tv replacement.

They didn't buy YouTubeTV - that came much later. You are not reading my post properly.

Oh - I don't know - YouTubeTV is destroying the traditional cable market in the US right now. If people didn't trust them, they wouldn't commit a minimum of $72.99 a month to them now, would they?

@kohakuebisu: ESPN do not cover the PL in the US. NBC do. But, it has to be said, the coverage is very good. Not as good as SKY or TNT from the UK - but very good.

Of course it won't be available legally in Japan. Doesn't mean you won't be able to subscribe to it and watch via VPN.

Posted in: Taylor Swift could make it from Tokyo to Super Bowl. Parking her private jet could be tricky See in context

I for one, hope she makes it, and she should very comfortably. Haneda-Vegas assuming she can secure a stop and go slot shouldn’t be more than ten and a half hours this tome of year, she will have plenty of time to have a spa day too! She, like me, doesn’t seem too fussed by all this emission nonsense.

@JeffLee. I've had the misfortune of having to arrive at Narita once recently because the schedule was better than Haneda. I'll forego the better schedule for the moment and stick to Haneda. Place was hell on earth with foreign arrivals and people not knowing how to use e-gates for customs/ticket machines.

Pure coincidence and if it hasn't been for the New Year crash unlikely to have gone reported outside specialist Aviation press.

If anything you will see safety levels rise/change following the 2nd Jan incident.

Exactly what Nagasaki needed to attract tourists who don't always feel comfortable in Ryokan or Business Hotels.

@robert maes: Too much capacity in Japan? Maybe in the Business Hotel sector - most certainly not in the Western Style higher end.

@Aly Rustom - In all fairness mate - if you only fly Economy then its very tough to judge airlines these days. I've always found Cathay to be quite excellent.

@David Brent: Yep- they do in the winter. Suspended during the Pandemic but did fly in previous years. Lucrative route for the ski season. SQ and TG do also.

Way too much over reaction here - if there hadn't been the Haneda crash, and the 737 Max problems its unlikely that this or the Chicago nudge would have even been reported in the press.

Posted in: De Bruyne inspires Man City comeback in Premier League return See in context

Arguably the Game of the Season. I watched the second half live and watched extended highlights of the first this morning.

I have money on Man City not losing another PL game this season. No doubt some draws along the way but its a straight shootout between them and Liverpool now.

Arsenal blown up earlier than last year but will make CL. Villa and Spurs vie the other top 4 spot.

Unlikely this would have even made the news if it wasn’t for the current ongoing problems the the newer 737 variant.

Posted in: Crown Princess Kiko has not been well since late December See in context

They don't know what is wrong with Crown Prince Kiko and I expect when they do the public will be informed.

I'm sure the public will be fascinated to know that they have become 'Crown Prince Kiko'

On a serious note - all the best to her and if it something sinister then let us hope that it has been caught early. In all fairness, in spite of the allowance or salary that we indirectly pay the Royal Family, it is still within her rights for privacy. I believe that the press release about her ill health was released with her consent.

And in the USA, sex education is so poor, added to that contraceptive education, especially when it comes to hormonal contraceptive education, where would you like to start? Many American woman still continue to use period tracking apps without realising that they no longer ovulate. All your tables/data is of no interest to your average person on the street. When the basket case of the country that is the USA educates properly then things might change.

Social media in the USA is so full of bad information about hormonal contraception that the only way to counter that is for EVERY state to fund education properly. Unfortunately in the Bible Belt any funding gets blocked.

I'm sorry @jeffy. Too much emphasis is placed in abortion solely being down to being irresponsible, this is simply not true in many, many cases. If your views are such then so be it, but I think you're understanding of why the VAST majority of sex takes place is very misguided.

@Jeremiah. Every termination carries a risk, drug induced abortion causes far less trauma to a woman physically than a surgical termination. Fact. The drugs are proven and safe. Fact.

If access to hormonal contraception was equal around the world then there would be less need for abortions full stop.

Many states in the USA make it difficult and sex education is very poor. You can't have it both ways.

People are going to have sex (for fun and for love) whether this who live by the Bible like it or not.

And do broken condoms, contraceptive failure, rape and domestic violence count in your perfect world of responsibility?

I can't wait to read your answer.
