I would worry more about spectators than professional runners, who know how to train and cope with hot weather. They will back off or even drop out if their bodies tell them to. And yes, the times will be slower, but a medal is still a medal whatever the finishing times are.

Yasukuni and it's supporters remind me of those Confederate Statues and U.S. far right nationalists. Both honor their "glorious" past, and of course, both failed miserably.

Lots of down votes but little reasonable comment in support of why smoking shouldn't be severely limited.. JT reps on here? Maybe just smokers?
I agree. Something doesn't add up.

First off, the money, while not insignificant, doesn't sound like a large percentage of hospital revenues. And as mentioned, who can determine what the Japanese unpaid bills are from the article? Why not separate those numbers for more accuracy?

Maybe she should have went to the police and stated "I did NOT kill my husband!".

This is nothing more than a defiant "in your face" response to the bad publicity the whaling industry has suffered recently.

Very disappointed he was scratched. I was looking forward to him competing.

Udondashi: Japan Inc. was not forced to invest billions in Westinghouse or Rockefeller Center. Maybe you missed that Toshiba admitted Westinghouse was a mistake.

She's supposedly worth 135 million dollars. And even if her career ended, she would probably still make millions more in endorsements. I'm not worried for her.

Andrew Crisp: Since quite a bit of this stuff is distributed worldwide, I have to think the "legit' Japanese studios would keep records of proof of age. Otherwise, an exec could step off a plane in a foreign country and conceivably face charges.

Cliffy: He WAS a graffiti artist early in his life. And I have to disagree, I don't think the usual graffiti street art measures up to his skill level.

Cyrus gave a generic example of sexually explicit lyrics about women, and said that such lyrics "pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little."
Whatever your opinion of her, she was spot on about the nasty, misogynistic lyrics.

A "healthcare" bill that that's only about removing healthcare from the people who need it the most. Do we laugh or cry?

Seems obvious Trump has a thing for dictators like Kim, Putin, Erdogan, and Duterte.

One of my first times in Japan I ordered pasta in a pub and watched with horror as the cook squeezed ketchup in the dish. I can't say it was very tasty and I don't understand why this persists because ready made good quality tomato sauce is available. Is it cost and/or tradition?

So where did Ian and his manager read or hear that a war started?

"The lower court ruled that the 3-D data “realistically reproduce the shape (of female genitalia) and stimulate the viewers’ sexual desire,” but the artworks do not immediately suggest they are female genitals as they are decorated and painted with colors different from skin color."
Not sure if this is just nuts or laughable.

Utter rubbish. Ban smoking just because of a 2 week event, makes no sense at all.
15,000 people — mainly women and children dying per year from second hand smoke is not rubbish. And some other comments here about other issues being a priority is a false equivalent.

For those of you who say there was no crime committed, that could the case. But remember the political expression: It's not always the crime, it's the cover up. Now there's blood in the water and the sharks are circling. Stay tuned.

"Some detainees are held for months and even years with no clear knowledge of when they will be let out. Many develop depression and insomnia..."
Sounds like living hell.

IF they had a vote where everyone was on the record, Republicans would have abandoned ship and voted no in big numbers. The reason? Not because of the far right appeal to completely trash Obamacare, but because they would have to face the wrath of constituents losing healthcare insurance.
