    Back home in my language we have a saying that roughly translates to - "A dog's tail can never be straightened", although I prefer the politer version - "A leopard can never change it's spots". Seems oddly applicable here.

    “To many people there may be too many unbelievable mistakes, but that does not affect the conclusion,” she said.

    Err, seriously?

    Some of United's play was really sublime in the second half. The Kagawa-Mata-Januzaj trio really clicked. Hernandez is the typical striker taking advantage of the trio's capabilities. Some really impressive stuff.

    A separate statement by the firm, which filed an initial court petition in the U.S. state of Illinois on Tuesday, said the two companies “are responsible for the disaster of Flight MH370”.

    And they came to that conclusion how? A lawsuit when the Black Box hasn't even been located, let alone examined seems baffling to say the least.

    Their report, set to be released on March 31, is part of a massive overview by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that is likely to shape policies and climate talks for years to come.

    I somehow doubt this part. The Oil companies lobby has far too much money, and they will block any attempt at bringing legislative change in most countries.

    That howler from Marriner really had no big impact on the game whatsoever, apart from maybe a couple of goals flying in at Arsenal's end. And the worse part was that Ox even went to the ref and said it was him, but still he sent off the wrong guy. Seriously, how does anyone manage to make that mistake at the highest level?

    And Rooney, take a bow. What a sensational strike from 57 yards out. Simply outstanding goal.

    Megapopular all-girl idol group AKB48 ramp up World Cup soccer fever

    Not gonna bash AKB on this article, but I do have to question what Adidas is thinking. This is the World Cup we are talking about. The biggest sporting event worldwide. AKB cannot ramp up the fever any high than it already will be. Instead, makes it seem like the Adidas is using the WC to do PR for AKB.

    Where do I sign that petition?

    OK, jokes aside, I seriously think he should not be on that panel. Japan will be the laughing stock of the entire world if AKB or any group of that sort is featured in the Olympics, especially the opening ceremony.

    Yuri, I think the only way the jet reaches Pakistan is by flying over India, which is unlikely. Indian military radars would have most certainly picked that up, and given India's tension with China and Pakistan, I think they would have taken immediate action to verify the unknown object on the radar.

    Shot down by a military jet. Blown up by terrorists. Hijacked by elves.

    Dunno what really happened to the airliner, but I think we can all safely rule out the "hijacked by elves" theory.

    Tadanari Lee? You mean the same Tadanari Lee who scored the the winning (& only) goal in the 109th minute of the final match against Australia, thus winning Japan the 2011 AFC Asian Cup title?

    I wonder if these "fans" remembered to put that "Japanese only" banner at that time.

    Anyways, at this point it's not known whom the banner was targeting. Hope this is properly investigated and the responsible people banned from future games. No place in football for "fans" like these.

    Agree with darnname big time. I wouldn't call Shinzo Abe's decision to visit Yasukuni as a miscalculation. It was calculated as he knew what the reaction was going to be much before he went there. He knew China and S Korea would protest (I don't necessarily fault them), and that their reaction could be used for furthering his own nationalistic agenda and propaganda. The only miscalculation, if there indeed was any, was perhaps the strongly worded rebuke by the US to Abe. But there was an article some time ago about Biden trying to convince Abe over the phone, so I doubt even the US reaction to that Yasukuni visit episode was unexpected by Abe.

    There was a brilliant article in the Japan Times newspaper 2 days ago about how recent happenings, including Katsuto Momii's comments, are putting the NHK's image of being a neutral media broadcaster in jeopardy. The article looked at how the government exerts control over NHK by having the power to appoint members to the management committee, like this idiot Naoki Hyakuta, who then appoint the chairman, in this case another idiot Katsuto Momii. It also mentioned that while NHK depends on the public for it's revenue, it's budget is still sanctioned by the house which is controlled by Abe cronies LDP. That's why many people at NHK are starting to worry about what to put in the programs.

    LDP is trying to make NHK the Fox News of Japan. That, coupled with the passing of Secrets Act and other stuff, means things are not looking good for the Japanese public.

    An hour? Seriously? An hour on the phone trying to persuade this right wing nationalist PM Abe not to do or say something that will piss off his country's neighbors? Golly gee, seems Biden didn't read the character descriptions before he started to play the game.
