2021-05-27

まとめ Summary:

LONDON—

Having prepared for months to make its mark at this year’s Olympics, coronavirus variant B.1.525—a U.K. native best known for its skillful weakening of antibody responses—confirmed Thursday that it was excited to compete in Tokyo against top mutations from across the globe.

“I can’t wait to travel to Japan this July and show the whole world what I’m capable of,” said the highly transmissible permutation  of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, recounting how it had honed its spike proteins (スパイクタンパク質 ) and vaccine resistance in anticipation of the international gathering of deadly (致命的な) pathogens (病原体 )

まとめ Summary:

Somewhere along the line the International Olympic Committee decided to treat Japan as their footstool. But Japan didn’t surrender its sovereignty when it agreed to host the Olympics. If the Tokyo Summer Games have become a threat to the national interest, Japan’s leaders should tell the IOC to go find another duchy to plunder. A cancellation would be hard — but it would also be a cure.

Can’t sleep? Try getting less

‘By reducing your “sleep window”, you’re raising the stakes, giving your powers of sleep a real challenge, which brings out the best in them’

まとめ Summary:

Recently, I decided to try to deal with a bout of insomnia by deliberately getting even less sleep. If this strikes you as absurd, I can only reply that it’s no more absurd than what most insomniacs do instead: lie awake in bed for hours every night, getting more wakeful the harder they try to drop off, while ruminating on horrifying existential truths.
