    Perhaps the most corrupt administration in the world, ever. Lies that make the former US President Bush look like an angel. Economics that are far worse than those of Venezuela's Chavez. She called Cuba a solid "democracy". The worst example of what leftists can do to a country. Poor Brazilians.

    Can't believe this is happening in modern Japan.

    I always say that kanji (combined with Japanese language) is what keeps Japan isolated from the rest of the world. Kanji should be made an art, such as painting. If one wanted to learn kanji, then he/she should go to to a specific academy. And, my wild dream, Japanese should be written in latin alphabet - like Turkey did. Well, that's an opinion of a foreigner who always thought it was a waste of time to learn Japanese, both spoken and written.

    Apple is victim of two factors, one of them is an inside one. First, iPhones are still way too expensive in most part of the world. Perhaps in first world countries it's relatively affordable. But in some countries it costs as much as a no-frills car. Seriously? And iPhones 6S models came out even more expensive than the previous release. Second, most people with older models are quite happy with what they have, iOS runs smoothly in 4 and 4S models. Why upgrade to an expensive model if this 2002 one is still beautiful and works great?

    I am one waiting for the 7 model, will surely buy one. I am having a serious problem with a Samsung model I am forced to use at work. It is really not good for working or planning like iPhones are.

    Reading this article, a mystery came back from the depths of my mind: in one episode about a werewolf, in the final scenes, almost close to the final credits, the camera sweeps over a green forest and in the middle of it you can see a devious eye looking directly at the camera, but at the same time it looks like just the shadows of the the trees playing a trick. I have watched all the X-Files episodes and this one sticks to my mind because of this scene. But I have forgotten it over the years. Time to watch it again.

    IOC is going to drop bitter tears before, during and after the Rio Olympics. You can't believe what TVs are showing here. Just one example: the Baia da Guanabara, the bay where cannoying and some aquatic competitions are going to take place is, in simple words, full of s**t. No kidding. Brazilian federal government had more than the usual seven years to find a solution to it, but it hasn't yet. And do not forget the vast array of diseases that has plagued Rio for years. The last attraction on this stage, called Zika, is a virus that causes fetuses to be born with microcefalia. No wonder most Brazilians can't accept Rio being awarded such a premium honor, because they knew their government isn't up to the task it - bribely - wanted so fiercely. Japan will be IOC's salvation.

    Such a tragedy. They could really disband.

    @bfarm: yes, I heard from a Buddhist friend that the Japanese "school" is the most materialistic one. When he decided to spend one year meditating with monks, he choose Thailand. He said that Thailand, Cambodia and Laos defend the last standing fortress of true Buddhism.

    Japan has two obvious solutions: either open the doors to immigrants and accept them modifying Japanese society, or change the focus of its productivity - from being an industrial country where it won't need workers anymore to a creative one, like, for example, the small European countries that are specialized in a very small area of business and make living out of that.

    In 2002, I promised I would be more patient with life and its problems. And it worked! This year, I made a promise to be more detached from materialism. Hope I have the strenght. Thousand applauses to you guys who quit smoking. I am not a smoker, but I have relatives who have been battling for years and they can't win, yet.

    It was posted in CRIME indeed, but it may as well be revised as an accident. Plus, wouldn't you think that for the kids it would hurt less to learn that their mother died in a accident, not that that she was brutally murdered?

    In any case, I don't understand the Japanese's fascination with Hawaii

    Easy to understand: 1) different, western culture, opposite to visiting Singapore, for example. 2) reively safer. 3) English speaking destination, an obvious target for every Japanese studying English. 3) the American way of life, which Japan dreams of.

    To me it sounds more like an accident. I am friends with South Americans, they don't have heaters or kerosene down there. So, it's easy to go to the local gas station and mistankenly buy one instead of another - add the difficulty of reading and speaking Japanese some face, plus the volatile toxic fumes that can be produced and you have an accident. Anyway, RIP poor girls. Hope the two kids are fine.

    Autopsies showed the two women had suffocated to death

    Were they strangled or died by accident (suffocated), say by mistakenly fueling heater with gasoline instead of kerosene?
