I think it amounts to a human rights violation. Hair length is not important in education. Whether it is clean and neat is.

"Dismissed" as in "fired"? Surely not. They were just transferred/demoted, so they will still draw a hefty salary for years to come.

The Japanese home builder said it will book half of the missing money as a loss if the company fails to collect it.

And what about the other half?

Posted in: Car hits and kills 15-year-old cyclist; driver arrested See in context

No info about whether the boy was wearing a helmet... Most likely, not. I am not sure if it could have saved his life, but helmets should be made mandatory for cyclists. Anyway, this is sad beyond words.

Quite unusual to set him free on bail so soon after such a serious accusation. Several months in custody is usually the norm.

Many people with the above-mentioned mental disorders live on a meager disability pension, so they can't afford to travel by plane without thinking twice, so I welcome the measure.

Not locking the doors when you leave the car and can't see it, even for a short time, is not very smart.
