Pretty soon, they will claim that Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, and Thailand belong to China as well. Then it will be Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia! What world are they living in?

Another good govt initiative (becoming competent in English) addressed in an ineffective way (standardized tests). TOEIC and also TOEFL has been used in many companies to assess English proficiency for years and yet, we still have many who are not competent. For college students, this issue can be addressed by having them study abroad for 1 year at an English speaking country--which is precisely what the previous ruling party suggested, but now gone.

Management need to address the lasers without a doubt and have those perpetrators kicked-out or forfeit the game; but the coach needs to address with the team what they can control...they effort (or the lack thereof), their questionable decision making, etc., and make amends for the next game. Blaming doesn't do any good for any high performing team.

Wonder why it was Endo to shoot the PK and not someone like Kagawa? Coaches decision?

Sakurala and ChibaChick...sorry to hear about your parents' predicaments. It proves to show that we are creatures of habits and old habits die hard. But this does not mean that we are helpless. Most people who feel helpless believe that nothing can be done, that they are forever prisoners of their past. They need to learn that this in and of itself is a choice they are making. Once they become aware of this, then change and healing can start.

When clips of this comes on the news, I also think its a joke because one shout does not make a marriage. All of us who are married need to show our love to our spouses on a daily basis through our words and actions--starting with our thoughts!

Matsui was the first DH to be named World Series MVP and probably the first and last Japanese to accomplish this. He was able to come through in the clutch, feats that only super-stars can do. He was a class act. Thanks big fella!

Thank you Matsui-san for the wonderful display of your talents on both sides of the Pacific and for being an inspiration for many. You will be missed. Enjoy your retirement and the next phase of your life!!

Seems like back to LDP shenanigans--building bridges, dams, and roads that lead to no where and hardly used. Same old tune like a broken record...only this time, it could all tilt with the debts are record levels.

"I think Japan has achieved many remarkable civil engineering projects, like the world's longest suspension bridge at Akashi and the world's longest rail tunnel linking Hokkaido to Honshu."
Without a doubt, constructed by the construction companies--Shimizu, Ohbayashi, Kajima, etc. and NOT by the government.
The Haneda extension and the Tokyo Aqualine are without a doubt state of the art!
