been using BlackBerry since end of 2009, and still loving it. On my third model already, and although I really like the keypad version, my Z10 is superb. Japan is not the only market that has lukewarm attitude towards BlackBerry. When I went to Kazakhstan, everybody is on Samsung or Iphone. Only once I saw a person using Bold 5.

Talk about stay at home mothers and those who works, and can't help noticing some indirectly implying that those stay at home mothers are better than those who works. While it is true in some cases, but in some cases children with both parents working are not totally left out in the love department too.
It's like saying children from broken homes would be society trash and we all know it is just not true.
I've seen people with both parents working and they still excels and i've seen some children from single income parent, with mothers staying at home, supposedly nurturing them, turned out to be criminals. And i've seen children from broken homes hold big positions and great job at work.
You see, while it is true that mothers need to nurture their children, but she are not supposed to stand alone. I believe to create better society is not one person job, but the rest of the people in the society. And it just not helping if the said stays at home mothers spend the majority of their time at some pachinko parlour, wasting away the hard earned money

Is it just me, or why when people talk or discussing women in workforce, many would always think about them in corporate world? How about small businesses? The SMEs. It does contribute to the national income. Women could have the choice to work in industries that caters to their needs. Mothers with design degree maybe could work from home.
Or those with montessori knowledge could open child minding centres for working mothers (who prefers to work)... The issue here is whether there are avenue for working mothers to have their children taken care of during working hours, whether they have flexible working hours so they could breastfeed their babies, and more importantly, whether the mothers themselves want to work. I think women does not have choice when they are single parents, because in the end of the day, they need to bring food to the table.
So if they are working, does that make them bad mothers?

While it's not uncommon for criminals using loop holes in the laws for their advantages, the police force and law makers need to buckle up too.
Law makers need to look through arcaic and ancient laws that are not suitable for modern society and the police force should use their common sense in dealing with.
In this case, from what I see it, although he cease the threat tactics and only email his request on massege boards about the husband, red flag should be up because he had,in the past, a history of stalking the ex-girlfriend.
At some point of his life, he must have known that particular law and how to go about it.

Elbuda, I supposed so. but then again, so does London or Bangkok or even Tokyo for that matter. How would anybody tells me it is safe to walk the streets in those places or take a ride in the train when they have the sarin gas incident and London bombing?
I guess we just have to take the chance.

If he has evidence to clear his name (hopefully not a fabricated ones), I think he should be given a fair retrial. after all, we don't want the real culprit scot free while an innocent person rot in the jail.
but I would say, saying he is a minor and could not comprehend the result of his action, well, I think as a young adult, he should know, strangling a person could mean death. especially if the said persons were a woman and a child. clearly to me, his action is to cover up the rape.
as for capital punishment, over the years there are many country opposing to it. it might help the accused to repent and atone for his deeds and sins if he is sent to rehabilitation centres on the other hand, the survivors of his action, the family left behind, those are the things that need to be considered.
some people may not repeat the crime after they served the prison terms, others might be repeat offenders who could care less about others.

I don't know about you guys, but sitting with paranoid person on a plane is not soothing. And why on earth he put on the bullet proof vest, is beyond me. It's not that he's taking a plane to war stricken countries or something.
