  1. And yet, that cop who pulled the same move last year on the crowd continues to be employed by the government (probably even got a fat raise). That's the world we live in. As a famous movie once quoted: 殺人放火金腰帶,修橋補路無屍骸 (無間道II / Infernal Affairs 2)
  2. About &^@#ing time, took them long enough. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/canada-suspending-extradition-treaty-hong-kong-over-security-law-1.5636479 Personal commentary: Ok, now i feel better...
  3. If I was the coach (or actually, any member of team management and leadership) I would keep Jake out of the team's bubble for at least 14 days (closer to 21 days, just to be on the safe side) of self-isolation + daily testing that confirms negative results before letting him come anywhere close to the team. In fact, I would do the same for all team personnel and players - anyone who would be expected to be part of the team's close contacts before and when training camp begins and until the season is officially over. At this stage, with the potential of playoffs being on the line, if I was a member of the team, I would not want anything to de-rail this opportunity, most certainly not some selfish, immature act within a team of professionals,.
  4. Except what we're saying is that "ready for hockey" in the context of the pandemic they find themselves in also includes not increasing the risk of transmitting the coronavirus to the team. All it takes is one false negative to let him continue to play, and BAM - he potentially takes out the whole team. THAT'S the issue.
  5. The pan-democratic camp shouldn't bother with a q&a with 7por - she's now irrelevant in the governance structure of the region, pre-empted now by the ccp who will govern through their so called national security law. As a famous movie once stated, "Ever seen someone shake hands with a corpse?" (Infernal Affairs) https://news.rthk.hk/rthk/en/component/k2/1534870-20200630.htm
  6. Congratulations, 7por, you are now officially an irrelevant &^@#ing figurehead. May you burn eternally in the 18th under-level of Hell with your fellow ccp cocksucking sycophants and blind nationalist vermin scum, never to be reincarnated. https://news.rthk.hk/rthk/en/component/k2/1534818-20200630.htm
  7. I don't doubt that the Taiwanese have the brainpower and capacity to design and build nukes, but to what end? It's not really a solid deterrent, and could work against them if one of the parties of the non-poliferation treaty decides to call them out on it and convince the UN to sanction them.
  8. Well, then... that's one angle I never thought about - and it's absolutely true (and concerning, if you're in that business). Without the ability to give a "true and fair opinion" on any company's financial statements, you might as well throw trust out the window. https://news.rthk.hk/rthk/en/component/k2/1530404-20200605.htm
  9. Pfffft, yah whatever, you 5 old geezers. Fat chance the ccp will allow you your academic freedom or institutional autonomy - they're all about indoctrination, conveying the official party message, and ensuring complete conformity to their dogma, even if the dogma is contradictory and inconsistent. Keep on dreaming - the moment the ccp has control over HK, you can kiss your academic freedom (and your fat lazy asses) goodbye. https://hongkongfp.com/2020/06/02/5-hong-kong-university-heads-back-national-security-law/
  10. I was going to post this in the HK thread, but on reflection, I think it's better suited here because of the more wider implications and more worldly view this opinion piece discusses. https://hongkongfp.com/2020/06/02/hong-kong-must-now-rely-on-its-own-efforts-to-protect-academic-freedom/ And I should note that although the author of the opinion piece calls on the Research Grants Council in HK to protect academic freedom by taking action, I think the sad reality is that they are ultimately an organ of the HK government, or at least that's who pays their salaries, so they are more likely than not to rubber stamp whatever it is that the HK government (and their overlords, the ccp) requires of them.
  11. This is what happens when your government pushes the budget through, using you guys as the cover to fund a massive budget increase for the crooked cops to arm themselves with bigger and better. Notice how the cops' budget wasn't cut? Perhaps the only solace you'll have is that the cops' pay raises will also be put on hold for now, but with all the "overtime" they're putting in, they're still ahead. Still want to swear fealty to the employer that has shafted you, and tossed you away like a used condom now that the cops have their budget approved to buy the weapons and gear necessary to stifle protest and opposition? https://news.rthk.hk/rthk/en/component/k2/1529892-20200603.htm
  12. BoJo, you dimwitted fool - you're helping the wrong crowd! https://news.rthk.hk/rthk/en/component/k2/1529875-20200603.htm Most of the government and civil service - especially the cops - have BN(O) status and passports, or are eligible to get one. The people he should be helping are the youngsters, most of which were born after '97 and are ineligible to receive BN(O) status.
  13. One of the best bowls of ramen I ever had was at Ichiran near Shinjuku Station. Another was at Sansotei in Ottawa. Locally... Gyu in Continental Square in Richmond had a good one until they changed ownership a few years ago. Now it sucks.
  14. Instant noodles (especially the cup variety) are garbage. MSG aside, the noodles can never match the texture or nutritional value of a freshly-prepared bowl of handmade noodles, and are only propped up by the flavour packets. Having said that, I did eat boxes - no, cases pallets - of the $&!# in my teenage years (did a number on my skin and on my general health) and am paying the price now. I still eat the occasional package or two every other month, and my wife loves eating that $&!#, but I now generally follow my physician's orders and avoid the stuff like the coronavirus. And $&!# is an overstatement of its nutritional value and/or benefit to one's dietary intake.
  15. Wouldn't it be 16th/31st? And yah, I'm thinking the league may have 2nd thoughts now about having the games in the states, given the turmoil there... 2 weeks of self-isolation vs dodging angry mobs and national guards - I know which one I'd prefer
