    @volland:

    FInally.... all my life I have waited for this. Where can I buy one?

    Well the clock will probably be available at any 7-11, but finding a -180 Celsius place to keep it might be a little harder.

    There might well be another explanation for this, People (company employees etc.) are getting more reluctant to use their personal smart phones for business purposes. It is sometime difficult to determine what part of your bill is reimbursable and there are also concerns about security of personal information on the smart phone. As a contract employee, my contractor provides me ( as well as their permanent employees) with a company provided phone that is basic mobile phone and SMS capable. For this they usually get the cheapest hardware they can get that serves the purpose.

    7 of the 9 identification points are what she was wearing, do they think that after nearly a year she is wearing the same clothes?

    Well, if the ISIS thugs want to burn Jordainian Pilots alive, then I think the Jordanian air force should start using napalm on the terrorists. Let them get a taste of what it feels like.

    If they are so safe, why are the top three (Tokyo, Singapore and Osaka) located in countries that still have a death penalty?

    I guess they didn't borther going to Oslo, Bergen or Stavanger Norway, all of those cities should be at or near the top of this list.

    Also, I guess they m issed South-Central L.A. ( or maybe they couldn't find a cop brave enough to escort them there.)

    New York, where the hookers and drug dealers of formally crime-ridden Time’s Square

    Wow, you can substitute "Shinuku" or "Kotobuki-cho" for Times Square, but of course those professions are not considered crimes in Japan.

    The Japanese military complied with international law and maintained high moral standards, with the world's strictest military discipline

    Are they serious? Were the Nanjing massacre and Unit 731 activities in accordance with international law? What kind of "moral standards" permit Japanese soldiers to carry out experiments on humans?

    Let's not forget the Burma Death Railroad, The Bataan Death March, the massacre of around 50,000 Chinese Singaporeans and the "contest" between two Japanese soldiers of who would be first to cut off 100 Chinese heads, a running account of which was widely reported in Japanese news papers.

    All done with the utmost Japanese propriety of course.

    "My J wife took one look at Goto's mother on TV this morning and muttered that they should not be showing her like this."

    Then how, pray tell, was she supposed to make her appeal to the terrorists? Dress up and wear make-up?

    I wish the press would stop calling these terrorists "jihadists". What they do is strictly against the Quran. The Prophet himself laid down the principles of religous tolerance. These people are thugs and criminals and do not deserve to be called mujahideen.

    I there an English language website with all, the information avaliable?

    For instance:

    Fingerprints and other evidence in the home indicate the killer used the computer and ate ice cream after the attack on Dec 30, spending several hours in the house before leaving the next morning before dawn.

    How do they deduce that the killer ate the ice cream AFTER to attacks? Maybe Mr. Miyazawa Gave him the ice cream before the killings?

    Following the murders, police deduced that the clothes and knife left at the scene had been bought in Kanagawa Prefecture

    How do they know the killer brought the knife, maybe the knife was already inn the kitchen? Setagaya abutts Aoba Ku which is in Kanagawa.

    other circumstantial evidence such as the sand found on the clothing that the killer abandoned at the scene,

    Sand has a unique compound signature. It should be pretty easy to easablish where the sand came from. Sea sand, River sand, construction sand

    Three kinds of powered fluorescent dye were found on the trainers and bag left at the scene

    Could be from a dayglo poster or the paint on an arcade game machine (oxidized)

    traces of bird dropping, Japanese zelkova tree and willow leaves were found.

    So the killer founed something on the ground among the leaves and put it in his pocket. Along with the type of sand and those two trees in proximity, they could probably get a good idea of where he was at one time.

    From the comments of some people who were in a car the night of the murders who may have seen the killer - a man ran out in front of their car - he seemed to be on drugs or crazy

    Someone fleeing in abject panic, after realizing what he had done, would look the same. It would also explain why he left everything behind.

    Just soime food for thought.
