Does he mean the rule to STOP wearing masks at all times as announced by his Government last week?

Posted in: Heard-Depp trial not just a media spectacle; it's an opportunity to discuss intimate partner violence See in context

''An audio recording used in the trial depicted Depp’s apparent concern that he couldn’t take any more “physical abuse on each other” after Heard admitted to hitting him. Heard, meanwhile, testified that she hit Depp “reactively” while Depp hit her “proactively.”

''Depp v. Heard trial heard evidence that each had been violent toward the other during their relationship.''

The problem is...there is zero credible proof, witness testimony or physical evidence that Depp 'proactively hit her.'

While there is a recorded admission and testimony that Heard hit Depp on more than one occasion.

Other than that glaring fault it's a good article and a good discussion to have. Men can (and are) be victims too. The culture of simple claims unsubstantiated by evidence has to end.

Posted in: Abuse accusations by ex-wife Amber Heard are 'insane': Johnny Depp See in context

It’s understandable, but still a shame, the reporting only focuses on the famous names.

There’s been a LOT going on in that courtroom with expert witness testimonies that have all but destroyed Amber’s legal team and fabrications.

That said, defamation (what this case is really about) is very difficult to prove. But the exposure of Amber and her Lawyers mean any unlikely victory would be completely pyhrric.

Posted in: Amber Heard's defense rests in Johnny Depp defamation trial See in context

Hi Strangerland.

My opinion is based on the testimonies of Richard Marks (a deal broker in Hollywood), and Walter Hamada (the President of DC films). Both refuted Kathryn Arnold's (entertainment industry consultant) testimony that Amber is comparable to established 'A' list stars such as Jason Momoa, Zendaya, and several others.

But it's true, I'm just an internet poster.

''Heard, 36, who had a starring role in "Aquaman,"''

That is incorrect...she had a supporting role in Aquaman.

There's a big difference.

Posted in: Surgeon: Johnny Depp's severed finger story has flaws See in context

One sided ‘reporting’ again.

The expert witness testimony was torn to shreds in 5 minutes under cross examination.

He was forved to admit He never treated Johnny.

His observations were based on limited and controlled evidence.

He was forced to concede (after denying his earlier testimony in his deposition) his opinions were inconclusive.

’Media’ need to actually WATCH the court proceedings to be able to comment on them properly.

Posted in: Depp's star was dimming because of unprofessional behavior: former agent See in context

Just going to add, today was better for Heard's team in patches, but then fell away badly when they made some errors with witness selection. The IT/Google guy was a disaster for them and allowed Depp's to team to introduce the expression 'Justice for Johnny' and demonstrate Amber is receiving a lot of negative hashtags around the net. Not Good.

However it will still be difficult for Depp's team to 'win' the defamation suit, but certainly they are miles ahead in their actual goal of exposing Heard's abuse and changing testimony.

Posted in: Depp's star was dimming because of unprofessional behavior: former agent See in context

Just to note:

All of Amber's witnesses except one, are people that were living in his properties (free of rent) or were making money off Depp's work, or association. The Talent agency was fired. The friends of Amber were moved out of the penthouses, another broker settled out of court with Depp for embezzling money from him.

The one exception was his old musician friend who was cut off by Depp after testifying against him, but crucially claimed Depp was a non violent person....all this took place around 2016...in the middle of the troubles with Amber, and the witnesses all called Depp out on Drug and alcohol addiction...NOT domestic violence.

Posted in: Amber Heard's friend says she saw bruises inflicted by Depp See in context

The picture I’m getting is that Amber’s free loading freinds all took advantage of Depp’s gernerosity and swarmed his Penthouse complex turning it into a kind of drug dorm.

They then hatched a plan to set Johnny up, and cash in.

That plan is being thwrarted because they never expected more than superficial evidence would be neccessary.

Posted in: Amber Heard cross-examined about fights with Johnny Depp See in context

The cross examination was brutal. Amber was exposed, over and over on basically every single thing. Her evidence was proven to be false or non existent. Her Testimony was shown to be fabricated and inconsistant. And she had no visible injuries to match any of the injuries she claimed she suffered, and zero medical records to support her.

But....fianl act of the day was the worst for her. Her attorney, faced with this mountain of lies and an unreliable narrative from a mentally unstable client, was forced to abandon her redirect. She literally rolled her eyes and paraphrasing said, 'I've got nothing your honor'.

It's all over.

Sorry for the second bite: commanteer is quite right.

Amber in cross examination was proven to have lied about charity donations. Then proceeded to lie about her lie. The lawyer burnt her badly, but not a whisper of it in the Press.

Posted in: Jury sees photos of Heard's swollen face after fight with Depp See in context

Heard concluded her testimony by saying that accusations she receives on a daily basis from Depp supporters that she's lying about the abuse are “torture.”

Aside from EVERYTHING else that is 'off' with her testimony, this proves her and her team are monitoring the case on the internet, which is specifically against the courts rules.

LOL BOOM, I'll take us over a 100 comments on this non story, that has proven to be a story! Hahaha.

Of course, they may as well announce every time someone pays their way into a Japanese visa...that might be interesting to know.

But also, making yourself the top of the You Tube tree is not at all an easy thing to do as some seem to think.

But yeah....this probably should have been in the Entertainment section? It's hardly national news.

Posted in: Gov't says masks not needed outdoors if distancing maintained See in context

At this stage it makes sense to begin to return to essentially 'normal life'.

The combination of half-hearted measures, and mix of people taking no precautions anyway have pretty much dictated this type of announcement anyway.

Personally, you won't find me in any crowded bars or cafes, but it is time to begin to de-mask.

There was a time; a window, where global prevention could have worked. We are well beyond that now.

Arguments over whose strategy is right, or should we follow science have been rendered mute due to international lack of consensus and co-operation.

I still wear a mask, my friend doesn't. My brother in law had Covid, and was fine. My Sister got it from him and has Kidney complications.

2+2=5 is where we are at.

Posted in: Amber Heard's lawyers revised article Johnny Depp sued over See in context

LOL, I've been watching the whole thing.

Amber's legal team are trapped on a downward spiral because their client is offering them embelished and misleading information due to her diagnosed mental condition.

They've got nothing to work with and are day by day, witness by witness are being made to look like fools.

It's become funny but it's going to become brutal when Amber takes the stand. For now she is being exposed; on the stand she is going to be torn apart.

@ Lamilly,

Many people in abusive relationships find it extremely difficult to just leave, and walk out.

His testmony and the testimony of the others who have been brought in pain a very damning picture of Amber IMO.

'video ads that you cannot skip while watching YT videos.'

Take control of your internet and this problem disappears. Ad blocking software is free, effective and easy to use.

As for the question...who cares. I don't encounter ads.

I believe were are stuck with it now as just another risk we have to accept. That means masks year round, all year, every year.
