    Fantastic news! I saw them at Uni back in '96 - showing my age now - and would love to see Peter Garrett and the boys again! "U.S. Forces" would have to be up there among the greatest Aussie rock songs ever.

    the voters have propelled Trump into the lead despite the vitriol and negativity pushed by the far-left controlled media.

    The U.S. media is "far-left controlled"? Amazing! When did that happen?

    The Royal Australian Navy and Aus. Defence Force overwhelmingly picked and recommended the French sub. They have many years of experience in supplying this tech, Japan has zero. Furthermore, the Japanese bid seemed rather amateurish until too late in the piece.

    What will be interesting is the fallout on the Japanese side - lets hope there are no dummy-spits and claims of an "unfair process" ala. the failed Indonesian Fast train!

    Well done Nadal, it looks like he will go to Roland Garros ready to add to his amazing tally. Tough luck to young Kei - but he would have to be a dark horse for the French now. Lets hope a title is just around the corner for the kid - once he nabs one he could dominate tennis for a decade!

    Rest in Peace to the poor victims.

    What a gutless, heartless individual this Kikuchi is. Running away like a coward when he could have possibly helped his victims. Glad they got him - heres hoping this anti-social deadbeat faces a very long stretch in the slammer.

    Rest in Peace, Prince. Musical genius who wrote all his own songs, countless more for other artists, and played multiple instruments amazingly well. Whether it was heroin as some are reporting, or just a terrible 'flu, it not really important - it is a very sad day for music fans.

    Japanese eat about 80% of all bluefin tuna caught worldwide

    That's odd - I was chatting to some Japanese folk recently and they were adamant this near-extinction is "the fault of the Chinese"! Same deal with Unagi.

    I am pessimistic there will be any sensible regulation, or any change. Loopholes to fish Bluefin to extinction would still be found. The self-entitled generation of old men that exclusively control Japan think only of themselves, their "cultural right" to eat whatever they damn want, and could not give a rats about future generations - or anyone outside of Japan.

    Women are far more capable of driving a race car than this dwarf dinosaur. I doubt Bernie could even reach the pedals of a toddlers pedal-car!

    @ gaijinpapa - very nice comments.

    Keep your heads down and all the best, Kyushu folk. Prepare for more very big aftershocks. This brings back all the memories of 5 years ago for those of us in Tohoku. People will need mental support at least as much as material.

    Heres hoping one of the big commercial TV stations here will put together a 24-hour-TV telethon in the next day or two to support the folk down there who have lost everything. Get the likes of Kuma-Mon, SMAP, AKB, Matsuko Deluxe, and any Kyushu-based megastars, to try and get some money and put food on the table for those poor people.

    Heartbreaking that the Sunwolves had dedicated this game to their countrymen and women battling through the disasters in Kyushu, trying to put a bring them a bit of cheer. Their performance was very regrettable. Lets hope they manage to notch a win before long, and maybe purchase some big-name Kiwis in the off-season.

    Just over one year each for the shocking killing of four innocent children? I can hardly think of a more heinous crime anyone could possibly commit. So this is what things have come to - 4 and a half years for this? Disgraceful "judges". This violent, cowardly animal should never see the light of day again.

    Rest in Peace to these little Angels.

    Mr.Kitajima - "Frog" - you bow out an absolute champion! Wish he could've made Rio, but it is so hard to find those great performances at 33. I salute him - best Japanese sportsperson in history in my books!

    Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s goal of creating a “society in which all 100 million people in the nation can play active roles.”

    Umm - what about the other 26 Million citizens? Typical Abe and his LDP, no intention of ever including all citizens in their facade of "democracy".

    Good job Hakuho! Bring up that 36th trophy! I wish I could've bought tix for this basho.

    Surely the born part is not necessary? Just Bulgarian would suffice? Or has Aoiyama become a Japanese citizen?

    What a worthless scumbag this Castellanos is. Give him 20 in the roughest prison Japan has to offer. I just hope the poor woman will one day recover, and somehow find peace.

    Sorry to say, but I can picture the scene now, a dozen woefully inept men running around scaring the bejesus out of a tame animal - with Benny Hill music as the soundtrack.

    Very, very happy and proud of the Invincible Matildas! They are a young team on the rise - we may not quite be up there with the Americans and Germans yet, but I'm sure our girls will fight like true Aussies for a medal in Rio!

    Tough to blame the absence of Sawa as some in the media are. Wonderful player she was - probably my favourite Japanese sportsperson ever! - the team had to move on and develop. It could take another 10 or so years for the huge number of young kids here that were inspired by Sawa to come through. Japan could be unstoppable in a decade! Tokyo may be very tough to medal - they should probably realistically look at 2024 and beyond.

    GO THE MATILDAS! They may as well book those Rio tickets now!

    Think about death

    Does anyone really want to think about death when embarking upon a relationship? Maybe practical, but a pretty morbid way to start things!
