    I think that this is very cool - the only thing that would make it more interesting would be to put collar cams on a few free roaming cats to get the real cat's eye view of things. You could even offer some real time broadcasts like they do with the traffic cams.

    Very sad statistics, but I have to wonder if the somewhat lower rates are more indicative of the overall declining population figures. I can relate to those kids as I too was not one of the popular kids throughout school and even into college. Another important thing for parents to watch for is a child that starts to isolate themselves from friends and others - especially if they say they are studying but their grades either do not change or decline.

    The signs of depression can be very hard to spot as those of us that suffer from it become experts at showing a false face to those around us, and it is one of the most difficult things to do when it comes to reaching out to someone, no matter how close you are to them. There are experiences from my life that no one in my family is aware of even now, and I had my first diagnosis of extreme depression 30 years ago, and it went untreated for many years both before and after that.

    Finally something good coming to the forefront - but I think those that aided the animals should get more than a slap on the wrist.

    I can testify from personal experience that this method does not work for everyone. For those like myself you can spiral into a heavy depression with little or no warning, and when this happens there are no coping skills that can help you - all you can do is try and ride it out not unlike a small ship in a big storm. And, if you have never been there, you really cannot understand it

    You need to read the passage again

    "The drilling was stopped for environmental reasons, so it makes sense for Hayashi to act."

    The drilling was stopped for Political reason, nothing more

    I agree with the girl's father, 5-9 years is not a jail sentence for this serious of a crime. Either life or execution would be fair.

    I think that this quote says it all:

    but it would certainly seem that the liability ought to fall on whoever decided to put a soccer goal right in front of a school entrance gate.

    And here I thought that only American courts were this messed up

    "Beset by low air fares and relentless competition, airlines around the world are waking up to the value of their frequent flyer programs and realising they can boost profits as well as brand profile."

    I do not understand this - all the airlines have done for the past several years is raise prices and add on more surcharges while cutting flights. What year was this supposed to have been researched?

    I am sure that Putin and his party are fully aware of exactly who is responsible, but I think it unlikely that the rest of the world will ever know.

    Very nice and useful information - I wish I had know this for my first visit. Can anyone provide other links to things that might show-off more of Japanese Culture?

    I am returning to Japan in mid-September this year, but I just have not settled on where I want to go yet. I am thinking possibly Osaka or Kyoto this time

    Due to the Hamas Terrorists being cowards they use innocent people as shields for their weapon caches and launch sites - choosing schools and hospitals seems to be a favorite tactic of theirs. Israel knew this going in and has issued warning for the innocents to vacate the area, Hamas is preventing many of them from seeking safety. So the real cause of the innocent deaths are at the hands of their own leaders - the cowardly Hamas are little more than a pack of rabid dogs.

    AN interesting statement "*The shooting down of civilian aircraft is extremely rare, and **if proved **the case, the downing of the MH17 would be one of the deadliest yet*." I do not think that there is anyone that has any doubt that the plane was shot down.

    I also think that Putin should be held accountable as it was his decision to invade and cause the troubles in the Ukraine and he should be treated as any other war criminal - he is proving to be no better than Hitler by allowing for this attack on innocents.

    I have two rather simple questions for the Authorties

    "Police said the dogs were put down and they were considering laying charges.

    Local Government Minister Paula Bennett said authorities would look at tightening dog control laws in the wake of the attack."

    Considering Charges?? It is clear to anyone with a minimum of common sense that the animals' owner did not have them properly restrained and should face the full weight of the law and be responsible for the child's rehabilitation and additional damages to the family.

    The Minister saying that authorities would **look at tightening controls **- is a cop out and shows zero initiative or any concern about what has happened.

    In my city we have ordinances about dangerous animals - ie: any large and dangerous dog. Most of these type of animals were bred for aggression and fighting ability, not as cuddly pets for people - they exist to kill or maim and little else

    OK - I can see a few matches to my ideal girl - I also like long hair on a girl, and think that Asian women have a nice, even intoxicating scent; but lets get real for a moment. If this is your ideal girl guidelines - get a robot!! I have told friends of mine that I compare women to Ayumi to get the perfect girl, but this is based on how I "Think" she might be, not on anything that is real. Everyone wants the perfect partner, but let remember that it would get very boring if that partner met every single tag you set for them, there would be no surprises, no mystery, nothing to discover about them.

    The man is indeed a true visionary - his concepts could also easily translate to Space Station Freedom with little change - at least once it is finished and can actually create a sustainable gravity well of its own
