11 year Lucy Li....awesome. She shot 1 stroke better than Mika Miyazato and is one behind Ai Miyazato. This kid is great. I think I wrote something similiar about Lydia Ko many years ago. yet another child phenom.

Whats the bet this sad excuse of a human being gets slapped on the wrist and nothing more. In saying that though, I seriously hope they throw him in prison with some real criminals who I'm sure will take delight in beating the daylights out of scum like this.

I wish this country would invest in some serious commonsense. A 1 year old in a car park (even though she was with her mother)......you don't have to be a genius to see the trouble that could be had, or in this case sadly, did have, if not held by the hand or even picked up.

Imagine what they teach their kids! She called you what????Right now take this bat and beat her to a pulp. I hope they grow a backbone, because where they're headed I'm sure they will be in for more than just name calling. Good luck in the slammer ladies.

Tokyo Skytree’s disappointing attendance so far
Gee wouldn't have anything to do with the steep price would it? Drop the price to 1,000 yen or even a bargin 500yen for a few weeks and maybe they'll see the difference in numbers for themselves.

The IOC has adopted a more hands-on role; it is unprecedented for the IOC but there is no Plan B. We are going to Rio
Plan B should simply be to return to the previous Olympic City from four years earlier. Give it to London again and teach the future bidding Olympic Cities (as well as Rio) a lesson in that 'if you plan to bid make sure you can deliver'.

Just build a retirement house for Ishihara on the island and let him deal with the floating Chinese vessels. After all, he was the one who prodded the nest.

And who the heck taught this person how to drive and charged her a small fortune for the pleasure of doing so? I can't understand how some drivers actually DO STOP half way across the intersection because the light has changed.......how stupid. Is that what they teach at the driving schools in this country???? Ridiculous. Fantastic way to have the car behind you slam into the back of your car that's about it. I wouldn't go as far as to say
“if only everyone could drive with such caution, there would be no accidents.”
She is more likely to cause accidents driving with her mentality.

Asakura Cowboy....spot on. I'd go as far to say that if Bubba lived in Japan and had a Japanese coach he wouldn't have won 2 green jackets. Coaches often stifle talent by turning them into clones to play the way the manual says they should play instead of coaching the player and not interferring with the natural talents he has. Prime example would be that every coach would try to change the way his lead foot spins when he hits his driver.

Japan is bracing for its first sales tax rise in years, with last minute shoppers buying up a host of goods from gold to ice cream, as the government tries to tackle its crushing national debt. AND in other news.......
Yoshimi Watanabe, the head of the minor opposition Your Party has spent 800 million yen on lucky charms.
Japan is to give up to $1.5 billion in finalncial aid to Ukraine

Japan finds it hard to get off the production line of churning out the same groups over and over and over again. I hate to imagine what sort of entertainment the world will be forced to watch during the opening ceremony in 2020.

At a LPGA golf tournament in Kochi when play was suspended and everyone headed to the clubhouse. No one was allowed to leave as there were fears of a Tsunami reaching the coastline. At first people had no idea of the seriousness of what had happened up north in my original japanese hometown and everyone was in a jovial mood joking about. But after watching the TV in the clubhouse everybody instantly went quiet and tears began to flow. The tournament was cancelled basically on the spot as were the following month of tournaments. It wasn't until we arrived home and I watched the news again did the realisation hit that 15 years ago I used to teach private lessons in the area where the tsunami washed ashore. I went numb and cried thinking about all the people who I used to know from many many years ago.

I'm guessing the Japanese media would have been up in arms if someone else had of damaged the green with a putter tantram and Matsuyama had of been in the following group and missed a putt because his ball had to roll over the patch that had to be fixed by the rules official. Matsuyama is very lucky he wasn't fined. Anyone who plays golf knows that damaging the green (especially in an event where a missed putt may end up costing you tens of thousands of dollars) is just plain out stupid.

I wish the reporter would have taken the initiative and interviewed both some of his current students as well as his past students and found out what type of teacher he was. That would have added more to the story and reduced the speculation.

I can't believe there isn't more of an uproar. How on earth could someone enter the freeskate section 1 point clear, land every single jump perfectly, skate flawlessly and still end up being overtaken and beaten by 3 points by a skater who made a mistake on one of her landings (the 3rd jump of her triple jump section)? But of course....Russian in Russia. That is the one downfall of any sport that requires judges points to determine the winner. There is always going to be controversial outcomes and this is one of them.

Hindsight is always better than foresight you old goat. If Asada had of landed every triple and the team walked away with the gold you would not have made your ridiculous comments. If by chance Japan didn't field a team in the team section, you probably would have been in the newspapers demanding why Japan didn't enter a team as they would have most certainly won the gold. Sheesh.....either way you would have complained.

Don't get too carried away.....The All Blacks were playing a game they 'knew' they were going to win. They won in a canter and if they had of put the foot flat to floor would have racked up at least another 30-40 points. Their focus is totally on the games ahead they have to play over in Europe. The game against Japan was in the eyes of the All Blacks....a training run for their fresh faces. But Japan can kid themselves into thinking the gap has closed between the two countries because of the scoreline. But at the same time keep your fingers crossed you don't meet them in a game with 'something' on the line because then you'll realise how distant that gap you think you have closed really is.

There is no end to this problem. This will still be continuing long after we have packed up and left these shores for our homelands. This will still be continuing long after Abe leaves office and is replaced by the next Prime Minister and the next and the next. This will still be continuing long after my kindergarden aged daughter has reached University. Is any one country brave enough (or stupid enough depending on which side of the fence you look at it) to get on these uninhabited islets and start building things? Or is it just going to remain as barren as it is now with boats floating around it with people saying 'that's mine that's mine'

Japan will pick a full strength side and the All Blacks will pick their 2nd or 3rd strength side. The All Blacks will still win in a canter though it won't be the cricket line score people are expecting. The best that the Japanese can do is work on other aspects of their game instead of fully expecting to beat the All Blacks in the final scoreline. Aiming to hold the All Blacks tryless for the first 15-20 minutes would be a great start as would aiming to score 1 try for every 2-3 that the All Blacks score would be another as too would trying to hold their attack in various quarters of the field without them breaking through with missed tackles. Other than that......it is nice to dream.......walt disney did and look what he did.

Every May, a pair of canteloupe melons grown in the north of Hokkaido is auctioned off. They regularly fetch the price of a modest new car.
The hammer fell on this year’s pair at a cool 1.6 million yen.
Perhaps the writer should've been a little more honest in their thinking and replaced the word 'cool' with the word 'ridiculously stupid'

However, Hawks battery coach Yoshiharu Wakana gave a revealing insight after the game, telling reporters: “It would be distasteful to see a foreign player break Oh’s record.”
Completely ignorant to the fact that Oh himself is a foreigner.
