Art has no intrinsic value per se and is a luxury for a society not in the grip of it's biggest challenge since world war 2. It's called pragmatism. Let's see how though 'positive attitudes' you so value actually contribute to the eradication of this particular corona virus. So you would prefer an artist to visit you at home if you had severe symptoms and not a doctor? Money used for art at such a time is a total waste of money that could be used to pay better salaries for front line medical staff? Or maybe we could send them some 'positive attitudes'??

“It just really helped me stay focused and continue to work on myself as an artist and being creative,” she said.
What a load of pretentious rubbish. Millions dead, more infected , hospitals and the medical system under strain . We are all so happy you can stay creative.

Well, good luck with doing something with arsenal. In that I mean spotify is no longer the leader in streaming and rivals such as youtube music and amazon music offer more for less cash. spotify hasn't really improved that much in the last few years ....take such an approach with a premier league team and they'll be playing Hertford Town f.c , Bishop's stortford f.c. and the like in a few years.

After all, what is a boardroom but a place where power players read each other and make high-stakes decisions with the best available information at the time?
Well, the writer obviously had absolutely no experience of being in a boardroom . Appalling journalism. A boardroom works towards the overall betterment of the organization. It isn't every member for themselves. JT scraping the bottom of the news pool barrel again.

Well, a short and powerful state of emergency might have worked but what did they dish out?? A lily livered set of urges which even the biggest village idiot in the entire history of village idiots could have predicted wouldn't make any impact .

Apparently suga is happy with the effects of the s.o.e. I have no idea what he can find consoling in these totally unrepresentative numbers!

Osaka governor yoshimura is a complete tool. He pestered the central government to lift the last state of emergency in late February , knowing full well the cherry blossom-goodbye-welcome parties were just waiting to happen. He couldn't manage to fall into a river whilst blinding drunk tiptoeing along a precipice at night, let along manage a city

This virus originated in china and they did very little to stop it's international spread ( the whole wuhan pock down was done only to reduce economic damage internally ) so as some commentators have said, why not ask china to pay? Ahhh...because organisations such as the who receive huge bucks from the commies in china and you wouldn't want to bite the hand that feeds you, would you?

From what kind of legal standpoint can you make such a ridiculous statement. Are you an expert on Japanese criminal law???? I think not.

Maybe after you grow up you'll be able to contribute something worthwhile to a thread instead of leaving infantile comments. I don't have a tattoo and don't want one but some people may not be 100% sure so this is a great solution. As they say ' haters gonna hate.'

You are sooo right and the madness continues.... quote
. On Thursday, millions voted in state elections in West Bengal with little or no regard to social distancing.
I'm sorry but I don't see why other nations are trying to help them when they can't even be bothered to help themselves.

Absolutely nobody to blame but themselves. Huge festivals, government sponsored political rallies with scant regard for any kind of precautions.

9000 tests in tokyo ( approximately ).... And 17,000 tests in Osaka....and which city is much bigger and supposed to hosting the olympics?????? Well done koike for suppressing the number of tests, you're doing a great job of keeping the virus ( numbers) under control!

Exactly. You couldn't be more correct. It's a pity the Japanese public doesn't realize this. Or maybe they do but are powerless to stop the olympics?

What is 'brave' about these 'girls'?

That is a grotesque false equivalency. There is an intrinsic difference between "black is king" and "white is king", and that difference is centuries upon centuries of white people oppressing and enslaving minorites throughout the world. This has nothing to do with being "woke", it's simple history.
What the hell has it got to do with history??
Black is gold has a very very strong inferred meaning and because a black woman says it , it's ok. Well, no it isn't ok. That's just your crew, the left liberals who promote this gender neutral oppressed minority crap . As very very accurately pointed out, black africans were involved heavily with the slave trade. You think the europeans just went over there and tools thousands by force? Nope, they were sold out by their ' brothers'. My parents are irish and told me stories of the racism they faced in london in the 60s so don't label me a right winger. The product advertised here makes skin look whiter and cradle of filth's next lp should definitely be called ' kiss my london irish ass, I'm no sad pc dimwit ( white is gold edition ).

So true..rhiana I think recently put out an lp called black is king. If say, metallica had an album called white is king, can you imagine the uproar? The woke left want to use language only as they see fit. Now Japan is going down that road. And this product might actually lighten skin tone making it appear whiter? What's wrong with that? It's just a description of the function of the product. Thank God I do not live in America.

He doesn't want to declare an s.o.e as the Osaka government would be liable for loss of earnings. However, as a governor, he is totally lackluster, incompetent and couldn't manage to fall into a river while stocious drunk.

Went past a bar in the sleepy suburb of Osaka where I live the other night. Absolutely teeming with people. Spring break, lots of parties going on and zero real effort from the Osaka government to do anything concrete to try and reduce the skyrocketing number of new infections.
