Nah, this is a still from 'Raiders of the lost ark'. When he removes his leather glove he has a disfigured hand where he picked up a very hot amulet.

Japan could increase their customers by producing contracts with foreign industry to transfer Japanese technology which will allow Japan to increase their fund and start new technology.

The Afghan government is legendarily corrupt. It looks like Aso is offering a couple of tips.

Our man Taro is stylin' and profilin'!

I wonder if these guys understand how close they are to the border with N. Korea, with S.Korean and U.S. troops keeping the N. Koreans from overrunning the place.
