Posted in: For past Olympics, we found fake ticketing sites. But with almost no fans at venues for the Tokyo Games, and many public viewing events canceled, it's possible that cybercrimes are proliferating around counterfeit websites claiming to be providing TV broadcasts or livestreams of the Games. See in context

I think fake tickets are still being sold to naive people, I am sure some people are paying huge amounts of money to be part of the privileged VIPs seeing the games only to find out later they were fooled out of their money.

How is this news? even if it is classified as "entertainment" this really seems as morbid interest in completely personal matters.

Posted in: Beach volleyball match canceled after Czech player tests positive for COVID See in context

This is ridiculous. That’s why canceling the game was the best option given the fear mongering and hysteria

You know what is ridiculous? a person that thinks the advice of the experts is "fear mongering" and "hysteria" just because personally don't want to believe the science. How self centered people have to be to think their opinions are more important than professional recommendations?

To be completely fair this kind of anti-sport attitudes are completely inside of what should be expected from these games, full of misogyny, drugs, scandals.

Seems like a boring generic thing, at least they will not be destroying some other franchise that could actually be interesting.

Posted in: There wasn't any consideration. If there'd only been one example of 'you're being asked to move, could you please possibly cooperate? Instead, it was pretty much'we're having the Olympics, you need to get out.' See in context

Even one time can be a hard experience, but twice? that must be gut wrenching, specially now that is for the covid games.

Posted in: Kono says local gov'ts need to slow down vaccinations due to supply crunch See in context

why not do the opposite? tell the people in charge of supply to improve it so vaccinations can be done at even greater speed.

Was not supposedly the lack of doctors and nurses the thing that was limiting the distribution? this makes it obvious it was just a lie.

Posted in: Bach says anti-virus rules working ahead of Tokyo Olympics See in context

Bach said measures taken to deal with these positive cases mean "the risk for the other residents of the Olympic Village, and the risk for the Japanese people is zero".

That is a plain lie, which means everything else he says can also be considered the same, the risk is never zero.

How about getting a well recognized expert to say the measures are adequate? Bach has no authority on the topic and an obvious conflict of interest so his judgements are irrelevant.

I do not understand why such places are allowed to do business!

I don't understand how they are able to do business, with all the bad name they have still women that visit them.

Way too much attention for this mostly personal situation. People just love to be in the middle of it without any reason. Maybe it is because the Kardashians have not been on the news lately, just get a new hobby away from celebrities.

You gotta love when the resident antivaxxers give up trying to defend their conspiracies and just end up attacking people debunking them.

Doc why don't you go to the families of children that have died from COVID and say to them they were not at risk? if they become aggressive you can also call them fear mongers, that will surely solve things.

Come on, there are countries around where people are still trying to make a living without getting shot by criminals or extorted by the authorities, the efforts are good and everything, but saying how good and useful is to have everybody registered in a safe system is not going to solve the urgent problem.

I bet somebody really important assured everybody the tour was completely safe and that all preventive measures were being followed to assure the health of all participants.

lol.

Still, may all the players recover completely without any lasting problem, they are not at fault of trying to secure their way of living.

As expected the local antivaxxers are in full "think about the children" mode today, I guess it is good that at least they are not bringing the vaers or sad videos of children that died because of the vaccine... even if they were of an age that could not have been vaccinated in the first place.

Deleted videos and facebook pages? no problem as long as you can just link to the scientific journals that say the same thing: Science, Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine, etc.

The journals say something different? thought luck, that would be why the videos were deleted then. Trump is no longer in office but there are other people that could use them to put in danger lives. Better not to give them ideas.

Eventually sports organization will have to do proper science to make proper fair decisions. The current parameters are not actually science based. I mean, for all I know she would still be allowed to compete, but with some properly done studies to support that decision.
