    A friend of mine walked into Helsinki airport and we never saw him again; he had disappeared into Finnair.

    Win or lose - you should have class and smile. That's good sportsmanship.

    Maybe he was just resting between smiles when the picture was taken?

    Coming second to Nadal is no mean feat; Nishikori should be very pleased with himself, he has plenty of years left to try again.

    Is he, or the Catholic Church, going to continue to support them in the Vatican or is that for the Italian government to provide?

    Charlotte Kate Fox did a great job in Massan, it was fun to watch but I'm not sure that Our House will be as good; the thought of seeing "precocious 12-year-old Japanese actress Mana Ashida" is a turn-off for me but I'll defer judgement until I've seen at least some of it.

    I did feel some movement in Tokyo.

    That was a different earthquake.

    Yes. their website says street-legal ("Rent a Go-Kart on the plublic road") but whether they are street-sensible or not is debatable. It can only be a short time before a kart and its driver disappear under a truck or bus

    I wonder what the effect would be of taking this polluted water and dumping it in the Pacific at the farthest point from land, taking into account ocean currents, and allowing it to be diluted in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean? Or perhaps, filling an old tanker with the polluted water and sinking it into the Marianas Trench, the deepest part of the ocean.

    Good to see that someone else actually read and understood the article. Having said that I wouldn't eat anything that came out of Tokyo Bay.

    Why would the door close when his family got on but he was still trying to get on with the stroller? Its basically unheard of, sound or no sound.

    Probably because the mother just made it through the doors after the signal sounded and the father tried to stop the door closing by using the stroller but failed. However, like everyone else, I wasn't there to see what happened so am speculating. As for it being unheard of, it happens all the time because people are trying to get through the doors as they are closing.

    People on the platform pushed the emergency buttons, which sets off an ungodly noise and flashing lights. It also lights a numbered light in the conductor's compartment, so they know which car has the emergency

    The emergency buttons on the platform cannot possibly indicate to the conductor which car has a problem.

    I'm not excusing the inaction of the conductor but, why was the father still trying to get onto the train after the door closing signal had sounded? Was he trying to jam the door with the stroller so that it would open again and let him on? It seems from the report and what I've seen on TV that only one front wheel and some of the (less than 1.5cms dia.) leg went through the door whilst most of the stroller stayed behind and was caught and dragged.

    and a part that controls the electric current in the vehicles.

    faulty part that controls electricity for capacitors

    A proper explanation would be nice instead of the above nonsense.

    Issa" derives from the Ecclesiastic Late Latin Iesus, which is from the Ecclesiastic Greek Iēsous, a name derived from the Hebrew yēshū'a, a contraction of yehōshū'a (help of Jehovah, God is salvation); it is an equivalent of Joshua as well as Jesus and is found in both Middle Eastern Christian and Muslim societies. The father of Congressman Darrell Issa, for example, was a Lebanese American of the Maronite Catholic faith. Remember, many Christians can be as conservative as Muslims.

    And Amir? What about that?

    His name suggests that he's probably a muslim and death seems to be the only remedy they can think of for, well, pretty much anything.
