clamenza, Saori Yoshida no longer works for ALSOK, so she wouldn't have been appearing in any new CMs for them anyway. I am sure she will do fine if she decides to retire from competition. She can coach, she can be a commentator, she can appear on various TV shows. Gold, silver, I don't think the number of opportunities will change. Well done Japan women's wrestling team!

Agreed. Show some respect. They should do the same at other sites like this, Arlington, Auschwitz, etc. I'm not against people (more adults than kids IMHO) playing the game, they just have to keep in mind that there is a time and place for everything.

My favorite too. A great sumo wrestler. Shocked. Didn't know he was ill. RIP.

If they really want to be serious about doping, they should have mandatory doping tests before all sporting events. If they fail, they are banned for that event, and perhaps more. Also, the medal winners should have mandatory doping tests. Again, if they fail, they are stripped of their medal, and banned for the next event. The costs of the tests to be born by the athlete's country.

I am happy to see this new Godzilla movie. This is the real Godzilla, not that CG crap made in Hollywood. If you don't like it, don't go see it. Rest assured, there are many lifelong Godzilla fans who will be watching this film, and will not be disappointed. This is classic Godzilla.

Don't know if it's good for GB, but it certainly is good for Softbank. I think Mr. Son probably got it for a lot less than it is worth, thanks to BREXIT.

I enjoyed watching his lip sync impersonation of Ayaya when he first came out. Definitely inspired Naomi Watanabe, the girl who does a lip sync impersonation of Beyonce among others. Despite the fact that he was a one hit wonder, he seemed to be starting to do very well. The way he died is very sad, and at the young age of 44. RIP Ken Maeda.

Good point marcelito. I'll bet there are a lot of people who forgot about that. Also agree with gogogo and Yubaru. I hope the people of Kyushu are treated well, but after seeing what the government still hasn't done for the people of Tohoku, the future doesn't look bright.

It's unfortunate, but it's hIs land, his tree, his choice. A few bad people have ruined it for everyone by taking advantage of his good nature in the first place.

With the temperatures going down, I imagine a heater was the cause of this accident. Unfortunately, as the temperatures continue to fall, like in previous years, there will be more fires. RIP to all involved in this terrible accident.

Always liked Kurt Russell, even when he was with Disney playing roles like Dexter Reilly. Looking forward to these two films, they sound interesting.

Completely agree with Brian Wheway. A sex offenders register and a more comprehensive DNA database of criminals would be very helpful. I hope that the victim and her family get proper counseling. I also hope that the rapist (Don't want to print his name again…) receives the highest possible sentence under current laws.

From what I saw on the news, they said that the original draft of the design was a capital T, and that it had to be changed because it was similar to too many other logos. That is probably when Sano dropped the left half of the T. I'm not defending Sano, but I really think it was just by chance.
The tote bag designs, on the other hand, were a fiasco...

I think what Adidas is saying is that women have a choice of buying the regular shirt or buying the shirt especially designed for women. Some may like the regular V-neck, so they buy the regular shirt, others may like the plunging v-neck. They're not forcing women to buy one or the other, it's the women's choice.
