    I just dont get nationalists in ANY country. Rather than Japan trying to force patriotism on little kids - ala North (and probably South) Korea, China, etc - how about trying to build a nation with freedom of choice, independent thought etc, that they would naturally be proud of? Its pretty obvious nationalists fear that without the State "encouraging" patriotism, the citizens will not be proud of Japan.

    That sure is one tacky looking resort - a perfect match for Trump and his BFF Abe! You just knew they would get along famously.

    If I am in the unfortunate situation in future of needing a health-care professional to help me, I couldnt give a rats whether he or she has ink on their back or "unspecified areas". I would be grateful anyone would help me. People who object to a hidden tattoo or two should be left to fend for themselves in such a situation. I hope this lady wins and shames the halfwits who suspended her.

    Extremely regrettable Kei has chosen not to represent his nation in Davis Cup. It bugs me that nowadays some stars do this (Australias Bernard Tomic is another serial offender) and then if their country makes the semis, suddenly they are like "OK, I'll take it from here guys". Yes, its a busy schedule, but show some pride in representing your nation for the fans!

    That's incredibly generous of JAL to refund the ticket! I doubt any airline on Earth would do that and would shift the blame to the traveler

    Really? I think you will find QANTAS offered full refunds to unfortunate travellers several days ago:

    I'm guessing the majority of big airlines will follow suit - the backlash if they refused would be a PR disaster.

    I doubt any kid is going to be able to get a meal with a main course, side dishes, salad/soup and dessert for around 250 yen

    Wow - that's almost disturbingly cheap. You get the quality you pay for, sadly. I sure would hate to have been the janitor cleaning those toilets afterwards!

    Well I lost my $5 on Kei, but it was more than worth it to see the G.O.A.T. - Fed - roll back the clock with a vintage performance! Hoping he keeps up his form and goes all the way, who knows when he decides to call time on his marvelous career!

    I reckon young Kei will get past the aging Fed, and get to the final. Having just put down $5 on him, I will be cheering even louder with my $130 should Kei take home the trophy!

    It is a sad irony that a great many victims of crocodiles are Aboriginal Australians - like this poor man. You would've thought 50,000 plus years living alongside these dinosaurs would've led to respecting their environment. RIP.

    After this unbelievable shock loss by the great Djokovic, Nishikori looks sensational value at 26/1 - amazingly just the 7th favourite to win the trophy. If I was lucky enough to have a few yen, I'd put some on the kid - it could just be his year!

    I'm not buying it, I believe there was something far worse surrounding Michael and his too early departure from this earth. We just don't know and I don't think we will for awhile, but like with everything else, it all will eventually surface as to what really caused his death, heart attack? Brought on by what?

    "Something far worse" surrounding Michael? Pray tell, what would your completely medically unqualified speculation be, to base your "belief" on?

    Rest in Peace, George - your voice and music brought pleasure to so many everywhere.

    Well done to all! As a bonus, Israel even recalled their NZ ambassador so that's a double win for our kiwi mates.

    Well said, Goldorak - and NZ will be an even nicer and safer place without the zionist there. Bravo to the UN Security Council.

    Spot on, Outrider. 400-plus cops were involved in todays arrests, and we in Sydney have a full-time "Middle-eastern crime task force" squad, which costs tens of millions of dollars, to keep the Lebanese and other M.E. gangsters/drug-dealers/wannabe terrorists in check. Imagine if we could spend it on schools, hospitals and roads.

    Excellent policing yet again from the federal cops. They had been tracking the emails/calls of these horrible Lebanese and Egyptian wannabe terrorists for several months. Plenty of other nations could learn from Australia's security which has thwarted so many islamist plots over the years. Lets hope these pigs are held indefinitely - in solitary - after they have served their sentences.

    Good choice! I have high hopes they will medal in Tokyo - Gold would be amazing but likely a long-shot - but the likes of those kids Kiryu and Cambridge are going to have to run sub 10 sec in the next couple of years. I think history of the past four decades shows you need at the very least 2 sub 10 sec runners in your relay to nab the top position of the Olympic dais. Can they do it?

    Rest in Peace to the poor, innocent victims of this outrage. I wish I could say this incident was shocking when I woke up to it - sadly it was not.

    I have been lucky enough to visit the ruins of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. It is a sobering reminder of the consequences of war, and of fanatical, fascist governments who start them - very similar to the A-Bomb dome in Hiroshima.

    May my German friends find peace this Christmas, and celebrate it in the face of these awful terrorists. And may all islamists - wherever they may be hiding in the world - be living in fear they will be hunted down without mercy and crushed by the entire civilised world. It is well past the time to rise up against them all.

    CR7 is the MAN!!

    Ronaldo sure does have a legion of male fans, nothing wrong with that, each to their own I guess!

    Its a long-shot, but wouldn't it be great for Kashima to shock Real to become the champion club of the world? Id imagine the chequebooks of all the rich Euro clubs would be out for all the Kashima players if that happens!

    The US is going to be SO screwed, it's almost funny.

    What's that old saying - "You get the leaders you deserve"? or something. Well, Americans absolutely deserve Trump - and whatever consequences come their way.

    I have a solution to keep everyone happy. Build these massive Casinos, but "for amusement only". Punters play not for cash, but for, say, plastic tokens - call them "chips" if you will. Now if, by co-incidence, businesses offering cash for exchange of these "chips" pop up adjacent to the casino, then so be it!

    Its a win-win; The LDP and their crooked cronies rake it in, and the anti-casino mob remain happy as they can sleep well with their heads in the sand, knowing that gambling remains "illegal", just as it is at the 12,000 plus pachinko joints!
