“I just was honored to present my credentials to his majesty"
As far as I know an emperor should be addressed 'His Imperial Majesty' in order to distinguish the status of an emperor from that of a king/queen, who are simply styled Majesty (HM) or Royal Majesty (HRM).

I agree with SimonB, Iran hasn't done anything at all. It is always painted as a dangerous country with presumably deadly weapons. But have we ever seen them? No. It reminds me of the weapons of mass destructions in Irak. Instead of everyone going against Iran, they should work with Iran, then all the problems would be solved.

They should just split the country in 2. I don't see how else they will ever overcome this problem.

Lizz, Asiana has many foreign pilots because the can pay them lower wages. So, who was the pilot then? Anyway, it is good that it wasn't worse.

I find it a bit hard to believe that they felt that earthquake in Moscow when I didn't even feel anything in Hokkaido which is a mere 300 km away. I had to look up JMA otherwise I wouldn't even have known that there was an earthquake. I saw the swaying buildings in Moscow on the Tube but couldn't it have been that this was an another earthquake?

So, in other words, the only one who was right about this was Putin again. They should have supported the dictator right from the beginning; he would have gotten rid of those religious fanatics. Now everything has escalated and it will only become worse.

Yes, a great loss for the world indeed. Evo Morales's speech on TV even made me cry. The world needs more leaders like him who can take their stand. R.I.P.

I think the most important thing is to believe in something to get over PTSD. Rather than taking some anti-depressants prescribed by some psychiatrists which only make things worse in the end, it is probably better doing that 'exorcism'. These people need psychological help most of all to help them moving on. Only problem is there are hardly any psychologists in this country. Maybe something should be done about that, bring them in from abroad if you have to!

This was the 2nd worst blizzard I have ever experienced up here. My whole house was shaking from the wind. There was no way I would have gone out in that weather. My deepest condolences to the victims' family.

We have space, more than enough, up here in Hokkaido. And Hokkaido has zillions of red traffic lights when there is no other car in sight. The sooner we get roundabouts here, the better!
Posted in: In places where traffic volume is low and securing land is easy, roundabouts can be effective.
