    I sure hope the people with their fingers on the nukes in that region of the world are better trained and composed compared to the complete yahoo idiots that pushed the launch button on that surface to air missile that brought down the Malaysian 777-200ER which was flying at 10,000 metres killing all 298 aboard, may their souls rest in peace.

    Clearly this is the 'heavier American version' judging by just how far he sunk into the lawn when he stepped off the pavement.

    'japan4life' What the article does not mention is that China is also participating in these exercises which I find interesting given the current situation.

    I wonder if that means "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" in reference to China being there but for whom does that saying apply?

    Hopefully this will be it forever, just parades to commemorate world wars of past and never again another war. We have so many other more pressing things to take care of on this planet and wars should NEVER be part of that.

    Sadly, when the dust clears from this woman's head she is going to be in a far worse mental state than when she thought it would be a good idea to crash the car. She's alive and as long as she's alive she's going to have to live with the fact she killed her innocent one year old son. That in its self will be the hardest punishment she'll have to deal with, jail will only give her more time to suffer the thought of killing her son.

    Japan's decision to reinterpret its pacifist constitution has provoked anger at home as well as among its neighbors, with China expressing outrage and alarm.

    "China expressing outrage and alarm" sure it is alarmed but not because Japan 'could'... 'might' attack China but more so because Japan is even more buddy-buddy with the U.S. now and THAT IS ALARMING FOR CHINA WHICH WANTS TO CONTROL THE AREA.

    Why else would a country like China be spending so much of their GDP to build up a military? Are they afraid of North Korea? Is China worried about Russia? Surely, China doesn't think that Japan wants to attack them? What could Japan possibly gain? Of course, this is a rational and sane course of thinking which, silly me, what was I thinking when I was expecting China to be rational and sane. Now that would be silly.

    The jobs are there if they want skilled worker to work at below unskilled worker wages. Are they surprised that there is a shortage of people willing to work at below market level wages in a country where simply existing is expensive?

    I have yet to see IT wages return to pre-2008 meltdown levels and with a lot of those IT workers having either left during that 2008 financial meltdown or the earthquake/tsunami induced meltdown of 2011, there's not many left to fill those positions yet they still try to keep the wages low. This is what will do them in soon enough when they realize there's no one left to fill those jobs because they've driven the remaining ones to another country in search of higher wages and lower cost of living.

    In November 2011, 20 children from a private kindergarten and two adults were killed and another 42 children injured when their nine-seat school bus - which had been illegally converted to hold 64 people - crashed head-on with a coal truck in Gansu province.

    Illegally converted to go from a nine seat school to carrying 64... hmm, let me see, oh yeah these pesky seats aren't needed and if we get rid of them all then you can cram 64 children in standing like sardines. What kind of sick bastards come up with these ideas in China?

    What? I can't believe no one has made any reference to the fact that this would go over well in Germany as well...

    Still, I am a tad concerned about the 'happiness' to be a turd for a moment and jump into a bowl. Oh and YES, I hate splashes too when it has anything to do with a toilet. Just not cool!!!

    Now this is the only way you grow something in such a controlled environment that you could (SHOULD) be able to legally label it as 'organic' IF you meet the 'organic' specifications. This business of growing things out in the open and labeling them as 'organic' when NO ONE can control what falls from the sky is ludicrous.

    Some may not see this as natural but it is the most efficient way to grow most things without 'taxing' the land and surround areas. Also, this technology will make the greenies who protest daily that we should only buy local as this would make it so. LEDs are becoming cheaper and cheaper and the know how to build your own 'grow LED lamps' is already out there on the internet. All it takes is the new generation of farmers to adapt to this and you could have year round crops anywhere. Yes, you could even use renewable energy to power these new grow houses. You could even build one on your own property or even in your house as you scale it to the needs of your family.

    Hey, if we can build 3D models right at home then why not grow food right at home? It all depends on just how much you want to be in control and how much you willing do.

    A bit late now don't you think? If they don't start to build it, what will the IOC do to Tokyo for balking on their proposal? These protests should have been LOUD AND CLEAR at the stadium final selection process. That's when they should have put the 'ALL STOP' pressure on. Now it's like saying "start again" after the race has already started. They are just going to waste a huge amount of time and still the date will get closer and closer and then you'll see MASSIVE budget over runs to finish in time. Does anyone every learn from these exact same past scenarios? This is not the first time something like this has happened. Tokyo or Japan or for an Olympic construction project elsewhere.

    Poor Chile, so close they could taste it. The dilemma here was you were cheering for the underdog but knew if Brazil lost that would be some nasty bit of business in Brazil for the remaining games.

    What? Power tripping harassment in the work place in Japan? Really? This isn't news but the way they go about it and the lack of dealing with it is. The worst case of harassment comes from the back stabbing ones trying to climb the corporate ladder.

    Triple 7's have many ELT's (Emergency Locator Transmitters) that automatically go off when there is a sudden deceleration (crash landings will set them off). These ELTs are located within the aircraft at various points and usually with all slide/rafts so being that this 777-200 has 8 doors, there would be at least 8 of these plus two more at minimum on board and NOT ONE made so much as a peep. This plane either landed somewhere or before it crashed all the ELTs were snatched up and deactivated or a UFO snatched the plane or the plane traveled through a wormhole to another time and place. One seems likely followed by two and the other two, well, as Mulder would say, "spooky".

    I fear that some group of nutters has landed this plane up towards the dessert flats and will use this plane when everyone has forgot all about it do some nasty 9/11 like damage with it or worse. I am sure that the 'super powers' have thought about this too and have a plan to find this plane but I'm sure we will never hear about that search or that possibility. I just hope they find this plane soon and put to rest the suffering of all the families and loved ones waiting for an answer.
