    I hope that they have good supplies of Entonox (50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen) along with the right masks to enable temporary anaesthesia when changing the burn dressings. It is much easier and more effective than opiate or other drugs, and wears off quickly too.

    These are less the typical image of a Hollywood cybernetic robot, and more of a pre-programmed mechanical assembly tool. Sounds like a lack of safety features, or not properly switched off.

    Talent management agencies only use the fax to announce weddings, pregnancies, divorces, promotions and resignations of their 'stars', along with denial of their affairs, relationships and and any misbehaviour.

    Wider coverage and reporting, but often less in-depth content. Greater chance of small news being heard, but still too much kowtowing to the corporates who pay for advertising.

    In another article, sales of document shredders and hard disk cleaners have soared since the investiagtion into FIFA and other sports organisations started. Lessons learned from Salt Lake City and the Nagano Winter Olympics...

    Tailgating again...108 km/h and 25 metres apart. See and experience this time and time again, so it is no wonder people die. Reaction distance and stopping distance in both dry and wet weather should be in all driver's minds, at whatever speed they travel. And enforce the law.

    non-profit Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance...spend about $1 billion each to design, test and eventually produce the new missiles

    Non-profit?

    Since when has anything to do with the Military Industrial complex not made a profit?

    Another distraction for drivers. Whatever advantage is said about it and its speed of use, they are still not concentrating on the road, but looking at a phone screen, which is smaller than the usual car navi screen.

    The paper shredders must be working hard here too...just in case. They all took a lesson from the Nagano Winter Olympics when all the receipts and paperwork were shredded straight after the event, just when the first allegations of corruption and bribery surfaced. And of course no-one was charged with anything...

    Yahoo Auction is one example of something that they do very well...

    Marissa Meyer seems only interested in speaking to shareholders, as she tries to re-invent the company; trying to give them what they want to maintain shareholder value, rather than speak to customers and find out what they really want. A corporate shill...

    It's a pity that for years Japanese Universities were not encouraged, and were actively discouraged, from researching robots or any devices that could be used the management of nuclear disasters, despite interest in them. The nuclear village could not risk any cracks in the story that nuclear power was safe.

    Blatter said he met with FIFA audit panel chairman Domenico Scala “to establish a framework for action and a timetable

    They have done nothing for the last 10 years to audit and clean up FIFA, despite numerous allegations and evidence. What makes anyone think that this last ditch action will be any different? Probably trying to secure his pension and shred all the evidence...

    They are good for local limousine car vendors, security company and barrier makers, sellers of expensive foods and wines, owners of five star hotels, private executive jet airports and the like. There may be a slight trickle-down effect in that some of the money ends up in a few local pockets. But by and large these circuses for the masters of the universe achieve little except resentment and disruption.

    The fund raiser Bob Geldof, who has considerable knowledge of the situation in Africa, spoke at a financial conference in Japan more than 10 years ago that China was already gathering influence and resources in Africa, and speculated that was where the future wars would be, over resources. In the mean time, Japan was developing dancing robots - Asimo,
