  1. I am partial to his Seimei hair โ€” I knew that from a hairstyle POV it's a bit basic but it just looks that good, simple and elegant ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™
  2. ?? I was a bit confused at first when reading this โ€” I mean, nothing wrong with prioritizing medical supply for own use? (and this is for the already-received supply.) Hijacking someone else's supply is entirely another thing -_- . That said, even if the amount of the supply is plentiful and could be shared just to immediate neighboring countries, at least , it doesn't do a lot a good when the supply's quality is not up to par, is it? *yea apologies for linking a news article not written in English but the point is when a certain amount of the medical supply (in this case the respirator mask) you received is of low quality, you cannot quite use the whole amount up for yourself, let alone sharing it to other countries that need it (and as far as I am aware, this issue doesn't just apply in Belgium, but also in Germany (and other countries that recently ordered the medical supply from China)).
  3. I mean, true, but still better than no content at all though? ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ™ˆ
  4. ...panic buying of medical supply on a governmental scale....why am I still surprised at that? The resources for creating the supply of things (eg. hand sanitizer ...and to a lesser extent the surgical masks too? ๐Ÿ˜• ) for public use in this situation can be more easily redirected so that it is produced locally โ€” that's not always the case with the more specialized medical supply, whether it be the testing kit, the N95 respirator masks, the ventilator, just to name a few. And for a certain [redacted] to just panic buy the supply (the way some dullards panic bought food supply and toilet paper just around two weeks ago :v ) so that other countries cannot get the same supply?? ...and to do this after insisting day after day that it wouldn't be such a big deal and diminishing the potential impact of the pandemic on the society?? The figging GALL! ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ That is indeed infuriating. Here's hoping that other parties can pressure the orange menace to not pile up the supply and return some of the supply to the rightful purchaser yea I'm talking about the Montreal N95 donator, just to name a few. Infuriating that the WHO potentially has to watch over this kind of sxxt as well... ...and to all people working in the healthcare sector and other essential sectors, hang in there, you all always have our support, those who stay at home and do our own part in these trying times... ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
  5. Same โ€” I still feel the same about it (ie. Yuzu staying in Canada) since the travel restriction (and later self isolation) in Canada was enacted. ...though to be fair to the (Tokyo) government I think when the first case from the Diamond Princess was detected they acted swiftly and put out recommendations to stay at home, not hold large gatherings (...and also closing of Tokyo Disneysea, museums and other public places) and telework. Again, only recommendations, but at least many people heeded it. The problem is that it seems like the Japanese central government felt like managing the coronavirus cases on the cruise ship was enough to stop the spread. They really underestimated the rate of the virus' spread โ€” while they tried to manage the cases on the cruise ship, people from countries with grave coronavirus epidemic kept coming into Japan and went around unchecked (...and you know, very possibly unknowingly spread the virus among the populace), and that happened as some institutions (some companies, schools and universities) are going to open up as usual in the coming days... If the pandemic should teach you anything it is that these people โ€” people coming from countries dealing with the coronavirus epidemic, who could very possibly be asymptomatic carriers โ€” are the ones that you should be very mindful of. They should have been traced from the point of entry and tested for the disease โ€” and this is where I doubt the government's action upon this (did they check those people?). Then there's also the speculation that Japan omitted the statistics on the infected and dead from coronavirus, especially from the dates before the postponement of Olympics was announced. I sincerely hope that (the statistics omission) is not the case at all, because as the current situation stands, I grew more skeptical of the government's capability to handle the pandemic
  6. I too can get a bit too jittery from coffee which might be a bad idea nowadays but if I don't have my coffee I'll spend the rest of my day in a lethargic mood, almost barely alert โ€” a low energy state overall, so I will have my coffee please โ˜• BTW my most Yuzu-like thing ever done? I was quite driven in my school life until I wasn't anymore :x :x :x :x also, did intense physical exercise I did during my highschool (in preparation of becoming a full member of school hiking club) count? Please make that count ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ Also a slightly different topic but I have the privilege of being born in the same year as Yuzu โ€” gee, thanks for making my life (achievement) looking soooo average Yuzu!
  7. This Yuzu insta fan acc posted the bits with him in ๐Ÿ˜„
  8. Serene cover of David Bowie's Life on Mars with tastefully understated tumultuous undercurrent....
  9. I'm sure the doctors, pharmacists, and (public) health experts of the Planetโ„ข would explain this better than I do but let me reiterate, there has been no conclusive evidence that chloroquine can help alleviate the condition of a corona patient, let alone completely heal them. That minister of health's recovery from coronavirus? That might not necessarily be due to chloroquine itself! All alleged recovery cases from coronavirus by giving them chloroquine are anecdotal at most โ€” it still has not been conclusively determined that chloroquine does have an effect that could positively contribute to the recovery in coronavirus patients. Besides, chloroquine is a really strong medicine with a strong side effect โ€” it has to be prescribed properly by doctors, otherwise you could easily risk overdosing/poisoning if you just acquire it over the counter and use it without knowing the proper dosage. Until the experts conclusively determine that (hydro)chloroquine is effective for coronavirus treatment I still believe that withholding (over the counter) chloroquine from the public is the good step to take at the moment. Otherwise, what would the alternative be, letting the public have access to chloroquine, especially without prescription?? Do you really want to see the alternative scenario happen where the whole public is now the guinea pigs, and it results in unnecessary deaths due to chloroquine overdosing?? I definitely don't want to see that unfold. (Also yes I limit the response only to usage of chloroquine in relation to coronavirus, I don't comment on its usage in relation to lupus โ€” I don't quite grasp the situation on it)
  10. I mean, Javi can't use the rink at this moment either way, but still.... (praying for strength and resilience for people in Spain, especially the healthcare workers, experts and other essential workers ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™)
  11. I don't exactly follow her social media accs but she seems to be still in Toronto. IMO the best course for everyone would be to stay put where they are and not do unnecessary trips/travels, on top of keeping your hygiene well and social distancing...
  12. Before the near total lockdown started (on Monday last week) the people here in Belgium crossed the border to the Netherlands on the weekend before to continue *business* as usual (eg. going to cafes, shopping, gathering in large numbers, partying in one last party before the quarantine even ....smh what do you think the figging point of the recommendation is for??? ). One week into quarantine and I think at least I'd like to think so people are getting used to it, more or less. In Belgium the police really fines those who break the social distancing rule โ€” there are 108 issued just today in where I live Anyhow a more light-hearted news (sorta) โ€” en route to Antwerp a truck's cargo was found to be overload by two tons, and guess what the cargo was?? Toilet paper! I am no health expert in any form but this is actually a correct course to take, chloroquine can only be given with doctor's prescription, there have been cases of chloroquine overdose (some in Nigeria, and when I searched for this medicine there was one over in the US as well ) due to self-medication attempt. On the other hand however there has been no conclusive evidence that shows that ibuprofen worsens a coronavirus patient's condition.
  13. For your quarantine viewing pleasure ๐Ÿ˜ I know this might seem to matter little to the entirety of Our Planetโ„ข's content but after a few minutes going into this video I think of the pesky copystrike by *BS on the FS program videos we'd love to watch ofc the whole FS video upload by the third party (ie. anyone other than the broadcast rights holder) ordeal is in itself a shady business but that's another story! ;รž ;รพ :รพ so in the end I thought,"...huh, why not share it here as well..." and this video helps me enlighten my self a bit on that (you know, the copyright thingy, and how it goes on YouTube). I also hope to see a drastic change (alright maybe not so drastic but hopefully still a significant one) on the copyright law, because the way it works now is just...
  14. ...well Singapore is located right at the equator (warm all year round!) or at least very damn near to it, don't @ me! ;รž but they still have to contain the spread aggressively. That said, I still think that it can be contained, even SARS didn't last for that long. So, until it blows over, we have to do all we can to stop the spread.
  15. I got the info about preferring delicate tasting food from the FaOI interview he did with Nobu and Shoma (admittedly it was in response to which kind of cake he prefers, so it's most likely that he responded specifically about cakes, not about his food preferences in general). ...and about the Ghana cocoa concoction, he made that with his fans in mind, so you can argue that he didn't base that creation on his own preferences at that time ๐Ÿ˜ (...and another word on him preferring Ghana chocolate โ€” I remembered that he said he likes Ghana because he can eat more without feeling like he had too much of it too quickly).
