good thing I am not a "foreign visitor".
maybe not but you will be flying on a private companies airline, private companies can require mask/ vaccinated proof for passenger to fly on their planes, after all if theyre legally bound to provide a safe traveling environment , (they can be sued for crashes and loss of life why cant they be sued for spreading covid on their planes) then they most certainly can mandate who can and who cant fly on their planes

@spitfire Baseball is a lot more popular then cricket and cricket is a terrible sport.
oh please, apart from Japan and the US nobody else really plays baseball. far more countries play cricket with a combined population almost 1.7billion. Just because theres more money in baseball doesnt make it a more popular sport worldwide

I love news like this which rubs salt into the still bitter wounds of the loser Remainers!
100m pound government subsidies is the only thing keeping UK manufacturing in Britain, UK economy is still expected to shrink in the next 10yrs all because of Brexit

People on this site laughed at me when I said that 50m doses would be administered by the Olympics, however at 26.3M now, maybe I was being too conservative.
need two doses remember so 26m so far thats not 26m people fully vaccinated , thats only about half that number fully vaccinated

What is the reason? I’ve been told by numerous Japanese people that they want to wait until a domestic CIC one is produced.
by that time the pandemic will be over, these people are assuming that Japan can even produce a vaccine as effective as Moderna or Pfizer and that the Japanese vaccine will have no side effects. so in the meantime they can roll the dice and hope that they dont get infected before a Japanese vaccine is even developed, goodluck

if Japan had implemented draconian lockdowns the numbers would be far higher and with huge numbers seriously depressed.
year on year increase in suicides about 3000, covid19 deaths so far with lockdowns over 10000,
so what if there were no lockdowns and the virus was free to spread for herd immunity, maybe the suicide rate would have been the same as before covid, but i can guarantee to the covid deaths would be far more than 10000, theres no easy answer for this pandemic, but doing nothing so that people can keep their jobs is certainly not it

Not to mention, 'fully auto weapons' are already illegal to own for regular gun owners. Being educated about existing gun laws should be a requirement for anyone who wants to discuss gun control.
just because theyre banned in one state doesnt mean they illegal in another, there are still millions of semi / fully auto weapons , high capacity clips, owned legally by average Americans, until those weapons are reduced substantially the slaughter will continue. What is it with Republicans why dont they car about AMerican lives!?

Australia does not have as many rich suitors to bring in cash and know-how. There are some, not many.
That's a fact.
heres the facts China is Australia largest export partner buys almost 3 time as much as Japan and is increasing yearly, ironically these same resources and agriculture products is what Japan need also. If Japan doesn't want it Australia will sell it to China India, Korea. Once again Australia doesnt need Japans money to be told what to do by them plenty of others wholl happily take their products
China: US$68 billion (29.6% of total Australian exports)
Japan: $23.6 billion (10.3%)
South Korea: $12.5 billion (5.5%)
India: $10.2 billion (4.4%)
Hong Kong: $9.1 billion (4%)
United States: $8.6 billion (3.8%)

comprehensive study of statistics from Australia , Germany, USA , Canada, Norway , France, HongKong, Singapore, Sweden concludes that Helmet use is associated with odds reductions of 51% for head injury, 69% for serious head injury, 33% for face injury and 65% for fatal head injury. Injuries to the neck were rare and not associated with helmet use. Statistical facts backed up by research. So enough with all the propaganda BS please.

j weddings are just a money pit, best wedding I went to had around 200guests, live band , professional BBQ staff/catering , "Pig on a Spit". all you can drink and eat, everything was a fraction the price of a J wedding. informal weddings are the best by far

but by and far japan's business practices has helped this island country to have the 3rd largest economy in the world. not too shabby of a mindset, if you ask me. yet it hasnt helped Japan dig itself out of economic stagnation for the last 25+yrs, within 20yrs Japan will be passed by India and be 4th. Japans economic miracle wasnt from its mindset it was from its was from circumstance, they made a good products at are very cheap price while having very few asian competitors. Now China has come along done basically what japan did in the 70s/80s and their economy has surpassed that of Japan, so that must make Chinas mindset better than that of Japan, by your logic
