Long overdue, but also a symptom that Google is no longer a positive force in our markets, so other big players are complaining.
The capital saw 33,106 deaths in the three months through March, 0.4 percent fewer than the average of the previous four years for the same period, according to data from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government. Data for April, when new daily virus cases peaked in the city, is not yet available.
The data does not provide details on the causes of death, but underlines that there hasn’t been a surge in deaths during the pandemic despite Japan having some of the earliest confirmed cases in the world outside the original epicenter in China. There were 1,200 fewer deaths in February this year than in the same month in 2019, while they rose by 428 in March.
Researchers including professor emeritus Tatsuhiko Kodama, a member of the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST) at the University of Tokyo, examined 500 people’s blood samples for antibodies. The tests enable researchers to determine whether a person has previously been infected with the novel coronavirus. They found that 0.6% of the samples contained antibodies for the virus on May 15.
Based on this percentage, it is estimated that the total number of infections in Tokyo, which has a population of 13.98 million people, could be around 83,880 — about 18 times the figure announced by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government at the time of testing.
This is consistent with everything else have been seeing which suggests that this pandemic was overstated from the start by China and our Leftist media.
Enforcing social distancing and quarantine relied on its entrenched system of “loyal neighbourhood party cadres spying on area residents and reporting to superiors”, says Phil Robertson of Human Rights Watch,
There were undoubtedly “rights-violating excesses” in the process, he told the BBC.
“But not many people will hear about those episodes because of the government’s total control of the media,” he adds, citing cases of people being fined or prosecuted for criticising the government response.
More and more migrants are crossing, Europe is closing its ports and no humanitarian ships are carrying out rescues. As the coronavirus pandemic dominates headlines, activists fear the Mediterranean is the scene of an overlooked “tragedy”.
The tragedy would be letting them in.
China infiltrated, buying the right people. Then it bullied out the “wrong” people. Now it is ready to assimilate Hong Kong and make war on Taiwan so that it can secure the theater around it, eliminating competition so that it is safe from regime change. One solution: send home all ethnic Chinese in the USA so that they can spread the good news about capitalism, freedom, donuts, and Jesus.
The bipartisan bill, introduced by Republican Senator Marco Rubio, calls for sanctions against those responsible for the repression of Uighurs and other Muslim groups. It specifically singles out a member of China’s powerful Politburo as responsible for “gross human rights violations” against them.
This is a misstep by clowns who want us to be fighting WW2 forevermore. If you want to go after China, go after them on the crucial fact that they have been making war on us for seventy years. We need to defeat them and hopefully, drive them into Indonesia.
On the other hand, calls on China to free the Tibetan identified 25 years earlier as the Panchen Lama make a lot more sense.
Conscious decoupling. Perhaps the story about Chinese spy chips was not wrong after all.
Huawei has seemingly stepped its foot into the kernel-self protection game with the release of HKSP. The patch itself is riddled with bugs and weaknesses and generally lacks any kind of threat model (making its mitigations similar to those present in LKRG where knowledge of the mitigation in place is enough to bypass it).
Perhaps clumsy, but if you want to exploit the world, you might as well introduce ham-handed exploits to all the software that you can, so later you can claim that it was just an oversight on your part.
TikTok, owned by Chinese company ByteDance, has exploded in popularity with young people thanks to its goofy, lighthearted feel and ease of use.
TikTok paid a $5.7 million fine to the FTC in 2019 over collecting personal information from kids under 13, a violation of the federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. It revamped its app with a restricted mode for younger users.
Looks like outsourcing labor to China did not work out so well. British socialism and unions — two targets of Margaret Thatcher — will need to die for the UK to fix this crisis.
The modern West is such a prostitute.
When you prohibit economic activity, sales fall.
The senator, a Republican, had apologized in a pair of Twitter posts the following day. He told CNN affiliate WLNS that his wife made the face mask for him, and it was not a Confederate flag.
People spending more time at home with their families, fewer people were commuting to work and delays to the start of the school year are seen as factors in the fall.
Jobs are jails. For long life and happiness, work less and spend more time with your families!
China says Taiwan can participate only under the “one China” principle, involving acceptance that it is a part of China.
China is now a Communist country, so Taiwan (nationalist China) has separated itself and is now waiting for Communist China to fall so that it can take over. Unlike in 1991, when Bill Clinton squandered every opportunity when the Soviet Union ate dirt, Taiwan has its eyes on the distant future. Probably in 2030-2040 China will self-destruct via warfare or economic collapse. Luckily, the meat markets will still be in operation for them to serve up human flesh fresh off the spine.
But in announcing the eatery was once again open for business, the restaurant’s French star cook, Jean-Claude Bourgueil, courted controversy with a post on his Facebook page.
“We start on Friday, but only with our bistro. No Chinese wanted!!!” the 73-year-old chef wrote on his personal Facebook page on Wednesday.
Should serve bat soup in apology.
90% Black means that it is bad to be the 10% white unless you retain control. Obviously, since that control lapsed, diversity is a failed model.
B-52s over Beijing when?
The head of the RSPB’s investigations unit, Mark Thomas, told the BBC it was like “the Wild West” out in the countryside. He said people who wanted to kill birds of prey had been “emboldened” by the absence of walkers and hikers.
The wildlife charity alleges that the incidents are overwhelmingly connected with land managed for sport shoots. Raptors prey on bird species that have been specifically reared for be killed for sport, like grouse or pheasant.
No one believes in anything, so when other people or CCTV cameras are not present, they act out their smothered rage at the world by destroying things.
“People are buying not specifically for the coronvairus, people are buying the shelters for what the coronavirus can bring,” said Gary Lynch of the Rising S Company, which manufactures luxury bunkers.
“The United States is very vulnerable economically and if there were a collapse we would see civil and social unrest.”
“What you are going to have is people going door-to-door trying to do harm, trying to steal, trying to take food and trying to take possessions.”
An antisemitic rally where an Israeli flag was torched caused German lawmakers on Thursday to pass legislation outlawing the burning of all foreign flags within the borders of the federal republic.
You have freedom of expression, unless (“eckshually”) it offends any special interest group, which in a diverse globalized world means that just about everything offends someone, so no one can say anything about how great the weather and Leftism are.
Kalbitz, 47, has a long history of involvement in groups that promote a revisionist interpretation of Germany’s war-time history and was photographed in 2007 at an event hosted by the HDJ, a neo-Nazi youth movement that’s since been banned.
“All we want to know is why you’re in here and who gave you the gate code. That’s all we need to know,” the man says.
In other words, this is about the HOA cracking down on its residents, not this driver.
The sun is currently in a period of “solar minimum,” meaning activity on its surface has fallen dramatically.
NASA scientists fear it could be a repeat of the Dalton Minimum, which happened between 1790 and 1830 — leading to periods of brutal cold, crop loss, famine and powerful volcanic eruptions.
Orcullo is detained at RACU 13 while complaints for violation of Section 4 (4) of the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 (cyberlibel) are being readied against him.
Good. Make people accountable and responsible again.
The newspaper said the coronavirus pandemic has heightened worries about global supply chains, and that U.S. officials are particularly concerned about the growing reliance on Taiwan, the self-ruled island that is claimed by China.
Globalism is so hilariously dead. Thank you, Corona Chan! You proved that we could not trust democracy and that globalism and socialized medicine are insane. Also, that our media hypes minor events into major panics. We were promised Spanish Flu of 1918 Part II and instead we got a minor SARS outbreak, but you conned us into destroying our world economy anyway. It is time to relocate Leftists to Venezuela and be done with their lying and subversion.
We should overthrow them, move their people to Africa, and turn Cuba into a nature park because Communism close to our borders is a bad idea.
Demographic replacement is genocide. Diversity will destroy the Jewish people in ways that Hitler never even dreamed about.
Every time the crowd panics, misery results.
Zolgensma was developed to replace the function of a certain gene that is not working properly with the injection of a normal gene.
Mostly in food service. Free prole holiday!
More likely, due to realizing that you cannot trust your government, media, “science,” or experts. They have no idea what they are doing.
The scientists found that every simulation in latitudes between 10 and 20 degrees produced a major hurricane, even from the stable conditions under which they began the simulation. These came a few days after a vortex first emerged well above the surface and affected its surrounding environment.
We are going to find out that the “butterfly effect” is more real than we thought, and explains how urbanizing one area can wreck the weather a half-continent away.
This is what it feels like when democracy destroys your society.
Let the third world do what it wants, but cut us off from it entirely.
Invasive species are destructive, just like diversity.
