But royal officials were forced to confirm late Thursday that she had in fact had "some preliminary investigations" in hospital on Wednesday, and stayed overnight, after The Sun newspaper broke the news.
Of course it was that toilet rag of a tabloid that decided to publicise something that should be kept private...
Even a high up public figure such as The Queen deserves some privacy when it comes to her health and needing to make a visit to the hospital.

"We are not a world government. We have to respect the sovereignty of the countries who are hosting the games," Coates told an event in his native Australia.
Just another way of saying "We don't care about the human rights atrocities that are being committed, as long as the country in question is throwing a lot of money our way"........

It woke my daughters up and shook them enough that they spent the rest of the night in my bedroom.
Thankfully the earthquake didn't cause too serious damage or injury. Though I do believe that the quake is the strongest one with the epicenter in the Tokyo Bay area for a few years now...

I was awake at the time with my youngest when the alert pinged through on my cell phone. Too far south though to have felt anything.
Thankfully those up in Tohoku, aside from being awoken, haven't suffered any serious injuries or damage this time around.

The paedophile will probably use the "I was drunk" excuse as his defence. And considering Japan's track record on handling crimes against children, he'll most likely get away with his filthy crime.

Panic buying that was ignited by the BBC and other media tabloids after they published articles about a 'fuel shortage' when 5 out of 8300+ petrol stations had to temporarily close..... The media have a lot to answer for over this mess.
And as for the shortage of HGV drivers. This is a European wide issue with counties such as Germany short of up to 65,000 HGV drivers and also Poland who are short of around 124,000 HGV drivers (a figure that is higher than the UK's!)

And we urge China to keep out of internal matters that doesn't concern them and that they stop threatening the peace in the Pacific area.

how about learning more english?
Ah yes. Because everyone in the world speaks English.....
The article quite clearly states that fans from all around the world are translating Studio Ghibli's tweets into their own local language.

Oh god.. I remember passing through this area on the day that they discovered the newborn girl's body and seeing all of the police and other emergency vehicles :(
A 5 year prison sentence for child murder is a sickening joke and Japan really needs to get it's act together and actually start to take child welfare seriously. Because nobody should be getting such lenient sentences for a crime as heinous as murdering a newborn baby!

one could make a case that that’s an inappropriate setting for an anime that, without question, a lot of young children are going to want to watch.
Demon Slayer also contains a high level of violence throughout the series. Should that be removed as well? Demon Slayer never was intended for young children, and if you allow your young child to watch it, then that is at your own risk!

He has lived a long life at 90 years old. Doesn't he feel remorse for the fact that his actions has snatched the lives of a 31 year old and a 3 year old who still had their whole lives ahead of them?!

he got excited when he first saw the girl and couldn’t control the impulse to touch her. He said he has always been turned on by young girls.
The medieval punishment of chopping off a criminal's hands should be applied to these creeps!

Residents of Tokyo, do you ever really get used to all those signs and all those people?
When you do the same commute every day, it all runs like clockwork.... I am so used to navigating around Tokyo Station and Shinjuku station, it would now surprise me if I ever got lost in either station.

I've been saying since the last world cup that Japan should be promoted to being a Tier 1 nation.
If Italy are classed as a Tier 1 nation and are competing in the Six Nations, then why not have Japan competing in the Rugby Championship? Japan have already performed far better at a major tournament than Italy.

The Royal Navy making a port call to Japan reminds me of when I was 7 and my Dad called me when his Royal Navy ship was docked in Yokosuka back in 1997.
He was able to enjoy shore leave and took in the sights of the Imperial Palace, Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Disney and more.. (His photos are an interesting look back on what Tokyo was like in the 90's).
Something that I feel these sailors won't be allowed to do when they make their port call this coming September....

Causing death by drunk driving should carry the same severity of punishment as manslaughter does.
You've chosen to endanger the lives of others and your actions have resulted in killing someone.
Imo, a sentence of a minimum of 15 years should be applied to drunk drivers that kill, and even then that still isn't enough for the children who've unfairly had their lives snatched away from them.
