Posted in: Mizuho restores ATMs, online services after glitch See in context

An ATM outage is particularly painful in cash-loving Japan, where electronic money has only recently made inroads.

This says everything about the state of banking in this country , while in many so many countries where most transactions are online, here cash is king..any atm outage is like a panic situation.

Trump did a bang up job of handling this situation though, correct?

Yes, he did..that's why you have these peace deals between Israel and many ME nations, and yes Trump was leading and was the decision maker, Biden has no such ability, he seems to working under instructions.

Posted in: COVID-19 death toll in U.S. tops 500,000 See in context

Something is extremely suspect when India has only 157,000 deaths from Covid and the US has over 500000!

India has a far larger population and limited medical resources compared with the US.

That points to a inconvenient fact..where sizable population has existing medical conditions..another factor is diet.. As for limited medical resources..you are living in a alternate reality..for starters majority of the vaccines are made in that country, and they are providing the vaccine for covid "free" to around 50 countries.

You own what happens on your watch

Going by this classic left logic, all the leaders of all the countries are responsible for the virus..

From day 1. I have said China needs to held accountable for this.

That is where the blame should lie in my view

Yep..but anything which could be remotely connected to Trump..will be blamed on Trump.

Posted in: WhatsApp to move ahead with privacy update despite backlash See in context

In India, the messaging app's biggest user base, Facebook executives fielded questions from a parliamentary panel on the need for the changes, days after the country's technology ministry asked the messaging platform to withdraw them..

So were they withdrawn or not..or still FB is going ahead with this change..If they go-ahead than they are looking at Australia styled showdown..but with a half billion user base in India..they cannot take that risk.

20 million is less than 1% of Facebook..

The number of authentic active a/c's on facebook will probably be around 20-30%, rest would be troll a/c's (very active), fake a/c's (more than 50%), seldomly used a/c's..not to mention the central/right aligned all but moving out from facebook.

The address to the annual Munich Security Conference -- held by video link because of the COVID-19 pandemic -- dovetailed with German Chancellor Angela Merkel's welcoming of a return to "multilateralism"

Yep..America last..Multilateralism first..

No one shut them down..

That is incorrect, they were hosted on Amazon AWS , and were de-platformed by Amazon, not to mention the app removed from google, apple appstore, and not allowed to use services of twillo, zendesk, as such they were forced shutdown.

It said the service would be brought back online for current users this week with new users being able to sign up next week — and would not be reliant on “Big Tech.”

Soon we will have social media, sites etc not dependent on these so called Big Tech, Excellent!

The vanilla narrative based disinformation, no mention of the what was/is the count of "active" US based users and how many are not active and how many have left twitter. Also no mention of the fact that active twitter users now are migrating to alternate platforms, example Indian government and users are now moving to Koo..and in parallel twitter officials are looking at potential arrest.

America had a dictator for 4 years and nearly half the voters wanted him again..

The real kingmakers in the US politics are the permanent Washington types both on the left and the right..as such the president can never be a dictator, and thanks to him we got to know who actually has the real power in that unique "only" two party democratic ecosystem.

Yeah right, and if Biden decides that it isnt safe enough for the athletes to attend, then what will Japan do?

Which athletes ? He can only decide for the american athletes..i.e the american left aligned athletes, Suga should make the final call on this, the sooner the better.

Posted in: Slain Capitol Police officer honored: 'We will never forget' See in context

The GOP, through its facilitation of Trump's bigotry, hatred, and seditious behaviour, is responsible for the greatest assault on American democracy..

The greatest assault on American democracy was the 6-7 months of looting, arson and rioting and de-funding of the police..a.k.a no law and order..the chances of recovering from that assault are pretty slim..

The whole world, whenever this happens in any country, should switch that country off business wise..

Lots of jobs have been created in the pvt sector in the last 5 yrs..If the businesses are switched off..all these will go away..for the businesses a wait and watch approach is required..as for the military..it's a fair game..

It’s a shame the republicans aren’t. Still at least they are now all about healing and unity, which is nice.

Correction..It’s a shame the democrats aren’t, and as is clear from the left posters..they do not want any healing and unity..as per them that will never happen.

Democratic Sen Dick Durbin of Illinois said on the Senate floor after the ceremony that he will remember Sicknick during the trial, and the loss that his family has endured..

This police officer is now part of a narrative which suits the left..once the de-funding starts he will be all but forgotten..the loss to all those families will be un-imaginable.

She denied Rohingya as their citizen & allowed Army to be brutal to Rohingya and defend to Army

The Army was never under her control...and given this coup...it is clear that the Army was never under

her influence whether it being the Rohingya situation or anything else..

Posted in: UK passes 100,000 coronavirus deaths as outbreak still rages See in context

UK, Italy, US, and Brazil lead the world with COVID-19 deaths. All controlled by corrupt incompetent leaders.

This would apply to most (not all) of the world leaders..the deaths are all related to comorbidity and/or unhealthy immune system..and in most cases the lifestyle that leads to that state.

These countries and few others are extensively testing, UK has tested all of its population, US is at 90%.. and hence these numbers..many others are not releasing actual numbers or simply minimal testing.

Posted in: UK passes 100,000 coronavirus deaths as outbreak still rages See in context

this largely avoidable disaster has weakened the UK even more in the eyes of the world.

Well the Chinese could have prevented by a full lock down and alerting every nation..but as was the case with every nation..all tried to initially play it down..the economics of the lock down took preference.. as such there was no way this could have been avoided.

Joe Biden will spur "more willingness" for joint action on issues including a crackdown on tax havens and a bailout for developing nations..

No such thing will happen..they are all funded by them..as for bailouts..these always comes with riders.

From the time Biden won the democrat nomination to being elected president is in fact a very short time..

Nice narrative..no mention that Biden was VP for 8 years..and as such should know exactly what needs to be done..but the left/Biden policy is multilateralism.. America First has been kicked out..this is just the start..nation after nation will now get more and more assertive.

Posted in: Google threatens to make its search engine unavailable in Australia See in context

It is clear Google agrees to pay based on individual agreements made directly with each news organizations for news published on Google News.

That Google News is customized by Google..i.e. they can strictly control as to what is displayed there..that's why they agree to pay..but search engine results, links, snippets cannot be easily managed and they would end up paying to anyone posting related content, they (Google) will have to make fundamental changes in Googlebot, and that will not happen.

Posted in: Biden's test: Engineering economic boom in a partisan divide See in context

In late 2008 the US experienced the first absolute decline in the money supply since the early 1930s. Not just a decline in money supply growth but an outright decline in the money supply. Why? As the value of mortgage backed securities crashed and home values declined steeply, money and particularly the measure of the money supply once called M3 was destroyed.

Sure thing..and what is history behind that..could start with policy changes of the Clinton era which allowed such type of mortgage in the first place..the banks simply exploited this in every possible way, which finally resulted in mortgage backed securities crash in 2008..

Because Congress refused to engage in fiscal stimulus the recovery took longer than necessary. In fact Congress was so stubborn about resisting fiscal stimulus the Federal Reserve took it upon itself to engage in monetary easing to stimulate the economy

Nice spin, so why did the Obama administration refused to engage in fiscal stimulus ..the banks working with the Federal Reserve bailed themselves out..

Posted in: Biden pushes to get food, cash to crisis-hit Americans See in context

wrong it was Mitch McConnell that blocked the bill because he thought $2000 was too much and $600 was plenty. Dems were always on board with $2000 and even Trump supported that. dont let the facts get in way of your FOX OAN narrative

It's not a left vs right thing..It was Trump vs the permanent Washington types, both on the left and the right, the later runs the show in Washington, with the President just rubber stamping..Trump was different as he tried to reduce there influence..and was therefore blocked and attacked in every possible way.

Also may want to read the that $600 and $2000 bill by Trump and the modified $2000 one by McConnell..there are other things in the bill which are hundred percent opposed.. these being repeal Section 230 and yes, setup committee to investigate the integrity and administration of the 2020 elections.

Posted in: Biden pushes to get food, cash to crisis-hit Americans See in context

Americans would have had more financial relief several months ago if the Democrats had approved the stimulus check proposal...but they denied it in the House because they wanted extra money added for their pork projects and also due to an upcoming election. They did not want Americans to see another stimulus check with President Trump’s name on it before Americans voted.

Yep..the mis-placed Trump hatred took preference over Corona..just show cases the character of the permanent Washington types, both on the left and the right.
