Coe really isn't too bright where Covid is concerned.

He is pictured wearing a mask whose main purpose is to filter the air he breathes and capture anything unwanted, like droplets containing a virus, on the outside surface. So, he sits there holding the outside surface of the mask with bare fingers with which he will then touch various parts of himself, other people and surfaces etc.

Sadly many other people do this too.

And Gatlin is a dirty drug cheat. Fact.

Cite? Google isn’t turning up anything that confirms your assertion.

This constant refusing of so many japanese companies to let people work from home, is one of the biggest reasons, why numbers of cases increase.

Not everyone is an office wallah, there are still many who have to go to work to make things, repair things and deal with people face to face, many jobs simply can't be carried out at home.

For those that can then companies should make every effort for their staff to work from home, at least some of the time.

The government has also been criticized over its snail-paced vaccination rollout, which has fully covered less than 1% of the population since inoculations began in mid-February.

This should be a headline on all news media worldwide.

But if Japan want's"pure japanese"whatever that means to live in peace abroad,they better think hard.Word spreads like a bushfire in the current world.As Iam writing this,I've already forwarded it to my family and buddies overseas.

Are you actively encouraging your "family and buddies overseas" to attack Japanese in some way? That's going to get you into a lot of trouble; do you think you're anonymous here?

And then there were none... I think the only way humans will survive is to make machines that can mimic the uterus and grow the fetus until "birth".

I realise that your comment was made with your tongue firmly in your cheek but, being serious for a moment, the world's population is estimated to grow from 7 to 10 billion by 2050. This growth, mainly in Africa, will be unsustainable but nobody seems to know or even care.

Isn’t the legal limit 0% ?

It might as well be.

The limits for driving under the influence of alcohol are 0.3mg in 1ml of blood or 0.15ml in 1L of breath.

However if, in the opinion of the police, the presence of any amount of alcohol in your blood has impaired your driving then you are judged to be over the limit. Therefore, for all intents and purposes, the limit is ZERO.

Do not drink and drive.

Your first link is the correct one. There are two Oneida tribes and your link is the one for NY State (Sherrill or Oneida NY, Oneida Lake etc). The Oneida's of WI tried to buy up land that was once part of the Oneida NY reservation maybe 20yrs ago. So there was a sort of beef there, I think they get along now.

Thank you.

“It is so true that no matter how big a nation is, it is no stronger than its weakest people. And as long as you keep a person down some part of you has to be down there to hold them down. So that means you cannot soar as you might otherwise.”

the 18 year old boy used violence, so should he arrested. There are cameras everywhere so the police would of caught the shoplifter quickly.

Nonsense. Also, using "would of" instead of "would have" doesn't help your credibility.

It was not immediately clear where the athletes were staying or under what quarantine conditions, if any, they entered Japan. It’s also not clear how many staff members accompanied the divers.

Why all the secrecy?

To avoid having hordes of protestors and media waiting outside I suppose.

Have never heard of the Oneida Nation so out of curiosity decided to look at their website suggested by Google which is oneidanation.org which diverts to oneida-nsn.gov which tells me "Forbidden - Visitors from your country are not permitted to browse this site." I wonder why.

This one works if you're interested:

It is plain criminal how a supposedly 'developed' country is putting the Olympics ahead of the lives of its own people, even if it means preventing access to free testing for anyone who has been in close contact with an infected person or showing even the slightest of symptoms. Absolute criminal. I hope the Olympics are cancelled permanently, and yes, that's out of spite, for the way the government has treated everyone.

Well said.

It’s odd that the divers are not wearing masks.

Problem is, as soon as they hit the water their masks would be torn off and the surface of the pool would be covered in floating masks.

Do some checking before posting.

wind n strom might be excuse from the greedy suez canal authorities bt in reality the ship might have performed the marine doughnut just like cars do in tarmac by braking the front wheels n letting the force from the rear wheel to make it turn sideways

As for this, there are words to describe your writings but they would not be permitted here.

Both operating a cruise ship and being a passenger on one are sheer lunacy, I'm sure most will agree.

However, I wonder how many of you take the train every day? If in Tokyo are you one of the more than 3 million who use Shinjuku Station every day? Or a Yamanote Line train crowded with a few hundred people running every 2 or 3 minutes? A half-full cruise ship has much more elbow room than either of these.
