    She won fairly convincingly for mine. More composed, knowledgeable, concise, and I actually thought she handled the big, blustering bozo quite comfortably.

    Where she really exposed him though was on foreign policy and international relations. She showed the diplomatic leadership and nous that the international community requires of a US President. She spoke of allies, alliances and international responsibilities. Trump showed he has none of it. He is clearly used to getting what he wants in life, a winning at all costs mentality, and that is the big difference between a diplomat and a megalomaniacal billionaire. One is suited to running countries, other, corporations.

    I find the decision of Freiburg to erect a statue to South Korean comfort women a bit bizarre, to be honest. It clearly becomes a politically charged flashpoint that places Freiburg at the center of a debate it really doesn't need to be involved in.

    And look what has predictably resulted. Silly.

    Indian-Canadians are 'East Indians'.

    Had never heard this bizarre moniker until I was on a bus in Seattle, and some random asked a Sikh guy if he was 'East Indian'. The Indian guy had no idea what he was getting at, but the guy pressed his line of questioning, so knowing my geography and wanting to end the confusion I eventually informed the guy that he is a Sikh, so technically North West Indian. The guy looked at me like I was mad. 'North West Indian?! Ha! What, you think he is a Haida?!'

    Eh?

    After a bizarre and bewildering exchange, he eventually righteously informed me that a West Indian lived in the Caribbean and an East Indian came from India.

    I deduced he himself was from Absurdistan.

    I lasted 2.12 minutes.

    I generally don't like listening to people who talk about themselves for more than about 30 seconds....

    Exactly. They are elected to lead, so lead. Make it happen and lets all just get on with things.

    You are making a whole lot of assumptions about this man which you cannot substantiate. We know he has taped the kids mouths shut and fed some of them larger portions of food...and that's all. Any other assumptions are baseless.

    Teaching is a tough, thankless job where everyone seems to be an armchair specialist these days. Teachers are often punching bags, both figuratively and literally, but I defy anyone to walk a week in their shoes to really appreciate what the job entails.

    I think his actions are bizarre and completely inappropriate, and he needs the reprimand for sure. But there is no need to round up the lynch mob yet.

    This is inevitably what happens when two people from vastly different cultures marry each other without being fluent in the other's language.

    Rubbish.

    Jimizo, he was absolutely at his best at Everton too - they definitely got the best years from him and I get the feeling he loved that club.

    He's done an amazing job for the national team, and as you say, just keeps delivering. Loves playing against Japan too...my wife is terrified of him!

    Been a long time coming.

    The US's wonton and reckless bombing of Laos seriously impacted on my travels through there in 2000, and I don't like that.

    It has also consistently killed and maimed lots of kiddies in the region ever since. I really don't like that.

    Bad decision, made worse in a high stakes game by the lack of technology to overturn it.

    It's an argument we really shouldn't be having anymore.

    I thought it’s either ‘I kill him or he kills me,

    Looks like he overestimated his opponent.

    Despite media excitement over the episode, authorities in Japan advise against this course of action when confronted by one of Japan’s numerous wild bears.

    No. It would be much better to sit down and have a meeting with the bear, talk about your differing positions in a very round about fashion, then arrange to meet again next week.

    You are asking humans to stop being greedy.

    It's a big ask.

    Very tragic outcome. It certainly appears suspicious to me.

    For example, a small town gets a single kid who happens to have Hindi as his native language. Where do you find a qualified bilingual Hindi teacher?

    You don't, it's done in Japanese, but at a level that supports the language learners. They aren't learning Japanese as a second language at the school, it's still the language of instruction, just designed to build their skills at their level.
