Posted in: Man charged over online abuse after 'Terrace House' star's suicide See in context

Haven't been in the detail of this one, but unless the prosecutors can prove that his comments were a cause of her suicide, then how exactly do you want him to get life or some other severe punishment? He is charged and convicted for public insults - if 9000 is the fine, what else do you expect the prosecutors to do?

People of all races can be misguided or bigoted. Which is why the narrative that focuses on white racism is a distortion of the facts and leads to a failure to address the real causes of these crimes. The constant reiteration of “racial differences” is deep;y unhelpful in this area.

Great it is backed by the WEF. But until the WHO and the UN also back it, I remain skeptical.

Posted in: Biden warns COVID war far from won; blasts people for 'reckless behavior' See in context

I think he is a liability, but on this I agree. COVID will NEVER be over. Endemic disease now and the only variable will be how we chose to live with it. If the last year becomes the norm I despair for the world.

Whitewash. And then we wonder why there is such a large number of doubters and cynics and conspiracy theorists around the world.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 234 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 1,339 See in context

Still very low numbers and even lower numbers of those really badly affected. But let's lock it all down. again. That seems to work.

Poor BrisVegas. Not sure how 3 days lockdown works. If indeed any of these measures have been really effective. But they are now the accepted means of doing something on so they will continue indefinitely.
