Posted in: Judo champion who defied Iran's rules now in hiding See in context

@mmw, I'm not sure where you are disagreeing. My comment had nothing specifically to do with Iranian politics. It was about any country, just happened that this athlete is participating for Iran. Any country that orders an athlete to purposely lose threatens the integrity of the game.

Why did you put "loose" in parentheses? 'Lose' was spelled correctly in the article and by me.

Posted in: Judo champion who defied Iran's rules now in hiding See in context

Iran should be banned from world events if they are ordering athletes to purposely lose or prohibit them from competition with certain countries. Sucks for their athletes but the integrity of international meets needs to be preserved.

If he was in the US he could have saved his job by admitting he has a problem and got himself into a treatment program. I've been in the business for 25 years and have never been tested before a flight.

@Reckless, I've never known anyone who wanted to get fired from a $250k job. Guys I know that are sick of flying usually just bid a reserve schedule.

How much road rage can he possibly have since he stole some other guys van?

Posted in: Ohtani to have season-ending surgery on kneecap See in context

Unfortunately he's always been injury prone. In his five years playing in Japan he only appeared in 100 games one season. MLB is a much more physically demanding game than NPB. Makes me really respect Ichiro even more that he only missed a handful of games in his MLB career.

Posted in: Driver appeals 16-year prison sentence for ramming motorbike from behind, killing rider See in context

Reckless driving resulting in death is what we saw last week when a truck driver killed a student on her bike. Completely different! The murder charge is correct, and the 16 year sentence is not severe enough.

Posted in: Crown princess declines to comment on daughter's postponed marriage See in context

Last year Princess Ayako was 'gifted' with over a million dollars of taxpayer money to help her ease into life as a commoner. I assume Princess Mako will receive a similar gift. I'm sure that hasn't escaped Komuro's mother's attention.

The court has the authority to give a longer sentence on appeal, hopefully this will be one of those instances.

Posted in: Mesa Airlines in talks to buy 100 Mitsubishi SpaceJet M100 aircraft See in context

Mitsubishi bought BBD's CRJ program. Airbus bought the CSeries. And Boeing has purchased 80 percent of Embraer. I've toured the Mitsubishi facility at Komaki, it's pretty impressive. Too bad they've had so many setbacks. When the Spacejet is finally delivered, it's gonna be great!

If he suspected abuse, not real smart on the husband's part to ever leave the kids alone with the mom. Especially since his mother was close by.

So this girl was pregnant at 16 and then again at 18. Obviously doesn't know anything about birth control or learn from her mistakes.

This is what happens when his mental ability doesn't match his physical ability.

Posted in: Japanese stars Kikuchi and Tanaka set to face each other for first time See in context

Kikuchi may be 29th in ERA, but Tanaka isn't too much better at 23rd with an ERA close to his season worst. And the Yankees have the best run support in MLB.

Posted in: Companies having hard time letting go of heels: poll See in context

Flight attendants shouldn't be wearing heels at all, as they might have to run from a burning or damaged plane. And for the same reason, passengers shouldn't remove their shoes until at cruise.

Out drinking until nearly 5am? Were the kids in the car or the bar when she was drinking? Pretty stupid to be drunk when she's responsible for two small children whether in a bar or at home. Wonder if the colleague is a quasi boyfriend.

Posted in: Man drives off with another man clinging to hood See in context

@simon, exactly where in the story did you read that the car was speeding towards the victim? Jumping on to the hood of a moving car is also a movie trick. Just crawling on to the hood of a stationary car is difficult, let alone when one is moving. I'm certain that he climbed on from the side so he had something to grab on to, and if he was on the side he wasn't in any danger.

And why again did the victim feel the need to jump on the hood?

Posted in: Man arrested for second time for secretly filming women in toilets See in context

No reason he shouldn't receive the max sentence, plus his suspended sentence. Obviously didn't learn anything from the court's previous gift.

@nanda, what pressure? Ohtani is not slated to pitch at all this season. In fact, if he has a great season at the plate this year he may never pitch again.

Since she fired her coach because she wouldn't put success over happiness, she must be ecstatic now.

I'm guessing the boy may have previously been abused himself since he wasn't afraid to call the cops.

Kathleen Willey accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault. He denied the allegation saying he would never pursue a small breasted woman. So what's the difference?
