Every time is see or watch USA TV programs they seemed to be full of violence guns and deaths, and most times when I watch the news, geause what, news from the USA, guns and violence, and they say they don't need to tighten up on the gun laws, WRONG!!! just the other week that cop (allegedly) shot that guy in the back whilst he was walking away, its not a good image for the USA is it?

This is the second time a news article like this has appeared in the news this week, the last case was over someone being sued over damages, and the person who was driving correctly on the other side of the road was fined or prosecuted for not avoiding the oncoming car, that had drifted over the centre of the road! so is the crane driver now going to be sued or prosecuted as he didn't move out of the way?.

I have one or two nice watches, but they are quite plain and simple I think the expression is more is less, even IF I had the money I can't see my self buying this watch, but at least it was returned to the owner, some people would be less honest.

If the zoo uses all of the possible PR stunts, they could get a lot of people through the doors,
1: Call it Charlie,
more uproar and complaints.
2: Rename the monkey Kamila ...more complaints,,get on the national TV, TV companies flock to the zoo and interview the MD and owners,
3: Zoo apologises, they don't know what to call the new born monkey, "competition time" they ask every body to write in and surgest a name, the lucky winner gets £500 in cash and a free life times entrance to the zoo, when you write in it must have your details on so they can contact you, IE email address and home address, (instant data base for sending out promotional goods, and zoo offers),
4: Zoo announces monkeys new name on TV and the prize winner gets to be on national TV with the baby monkey, Arrr! kiwaii!
5: The zoos cash registers are bulging with cash from the new customers flowing through the doors!!!
OMG I've lived in the UK for to long, i see this stunt every day!!

UK9393, your bang on the money! there should be a life float or some device near by, if these ponds are constructed rather than a natural type pond there should be a ladder for access/exit or something to hold onto or foot holes in the side of the concrete wall. a simple design mistake but a tragic accident could have been avoided, very sad either way.

Nice bit of PR for the zoo! they could call the monkey "Charlie" in stead, (no ref to the ears)

"They also say the plant is not strong enough to withstand an earthquake as powerful as the one that struck on March 11, 2011" well it obviously did ! and its survived many other earth tremors and earth quakes since it was built years ago. so its a pretty shallow argument, so they would be better off saying something, somewhere might happen, at some stage in the future,

I don't think that I would like to have lived next door to this poor guy, lets face it the smell from the decomposing body must have been over powering, especially if the old guy had died in the summer! I hope now that his farther will get a decent burial.

Abe san is moving Japan forward and certainly in the right direction, saying sorry for the war time attics and aggression is a step in the right direction, but he also needs to step up to the plate and address the issue of comfort woman, and the issues between China and Japan need to be addressed.

My late wife had breast screening done when she was in her 30,s, the reason for this there was a long history of cancer in her family, so, is it not the case that any breast screening is better than non, and if 3D is better why not, especially if there is a track record in families where it is prevalent. is it not better to be safe than sorry although there are misdiagnosed patients, i don't suppose nothing is 100% certain, but technology is getting better and better.
