If the holiday gets stretched to the 11th for everybody, we still get the same rush. Perhaps they should encourage companies to stagger starts and ends of holidays and be flexible.
Factories might not be able to stagger as easily as say, ad agencies, but the more flexibility the better.
(and the more holidays!)

The US should be happy to get rid of the senior Taylor.
I don't know why his previous criminal record, for defrauding the US military and trying to bribe an FBI agent investigating it, isn't mentioned in every article about him.

Sweden is clearly seeing a bigger second wave and ranks 17th for deaths per capita.
For reference, neighbors: Denmark ranks 72nd, Finland 97th, and Norway 104th.
So,... how do you define "doing fine"?

The best part of Winston's reply is cut off above:
"We've got someone who obviously got an education in America. 220,000 people have died in the US, where there are eight million cases to date. We've got 79,000 cases just today, probably in India, and here is someone who gets up and says 'the Earth is flat'.
"Sorry sunshine, wrong place," Mr Peters said, to applause.
((Note: The unidentified man asking for evidence of a virus had an American accent.))

How many more people have to be exposed to him and his infectious entourage in order for him to get to the venue for his TV time?
I do like the Zoom option - with a moderator able to mute the participants.

More than the beauty and fashion industries, I think the problem is the diet, supplement, cosmetic surgery and este salon industries that are the real problem. And I wish this art student all the best. Great cause. Not one likely to succeed.

Ladies & Gentlemen referred to class and social standing. (Manners didn't make a person a gentleman, it was being a landholder who didn't work/labour himself that made a man a gentleman. And to be a lady you needed to be the daughter or wife of a member of the gentry). A person could display behaviour unbecoming of a gentleman eg. Mr. Wickham, and early Mr. Darcy).
My own identity is not so fragile that I'm in any way impacted by this change to be more inclusive. Why are so many people so butthurt over an attempt to be nicer and more welcoming?

Does she have a business licence? Does her business pay and file taxes? If yes, then, like it or not, she should get the money, same as any other other small business. (Pachinko parlours got it, no doubt).

Great idea, Ulysses. Every other passenger should demand 500,000 of this idiot.
I also agree with Garypen. The idiot should have been removed from the plane before take off.

Only good if you are able to dress yourself... (I usually book a professional if I'm going out to a social event. If I'm not so worried about things going loose or wonky, I'll revert to my handful of lessons and youtube videos.)

And if I would have to answer to a similar questionnaire, I would probably answer I don't know what special measures should I take.
Can I assume you don't work in Human Resources? Because I think a lot of people don't have any idea about issues they've never thought about, but if you are in charge of company policies, then it does become your job to think about employees' issues. Things like family benefits: housing, condolence leave for spouse/in-laws, etc. are impacted by the fact that Japan only allows opposite sex marriages. Many large international companies that want to make sure they can hire and retain the best of the best will allow spouse and family benefits for self declared couples, regardless of the availability of legal status.
There are loads of things I won't have imagined. (I don't work in HR). Just because I don't know about an issue doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Defense lawyers say that neither the convict father, nor the son "pose a flight risk requiring them to be held without bail."
They are literal specialists in fleeing. Paid professionals.

I think a lot of Tokyo-based companies are realizing they can really cut their office costs in half by having at least 50% working at home every day. I know our office relocation is being re-planned right now.

Have you all watched the video?
And have you seen Brandon McCormack - poor little tough guy claiming "two black African Americans" beat him out for shouting "All lives Matter!". In fact, he went out looking for trouble, with his hunting bow, wearing his forarm guards, and started aiming his loaded compound bow at protesters, who then piled on him. Mostly pretty pasty Salt Lake City dwellers. His Facebook page shows what a racist, barely literate thug he is.

those silly plastic sheets, known for letting viruses linger for hours.
Pro-tip to you: don't lick them.
For now, they keep the spittle of shoppers, especially those to precious to wear mask, away from the hard-working staff behind the sheets.

None of this makes people reflect on what is really important in life?
Sorry, I don't see how that is possible.
Maybe it's because some of us are older and this isn't our first crisis. (earthquakes, terror attacks, tsunami, global financial meltdowns, cancer diagnosis and treatment, etc.) I expect you'll also so through this again more than a few times in your life.
I hope you remember it during the in-betweens and that your in-betweens are long and drawn out.
