JT why are you calling them a boy band? Those guys are musicians and they play their own instruments when they perform. I think that's called a real band.

Posted in: One dead, 45 injured in bus-car collision See in context

It was no suicide. On the news, they showed the video from the bus cam, and the car in the opposite lane was traveling at a high rate of speed, and hit the guard rail in the medium. It was launched in the air, and traveled a long distance before hitting the bus like a missile. A very scary video.

Dre. Hund that photo is one shot. It was taken on the wrestling mat right after match. That's the referee in the background. They both were crying at the same time.

I was actually up early this morning watching the disappointing match on TV. Soon after the loss, the uncontrollable grief appeared, and she had an immediate television interview with tears. I thought she would get it together for ceremony, but it was rather uncomfortable to watch her cry during the whole ceremony. I'm quite sure she gave her full dedication to her passing father.

China has refused to participate in the arbitration. Who's job is it now to enforce the ruling?

Posted in: Apple sued in China over showing of war film from the 1990s See in context

In May, a Beijing intellectual property tribunal in Beijing ordered Apple to stop selling its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the city after finding they look too much like a model made by a small Chinese brand.

You mean to tell me Apple is in trouble for making it's own brand, and the knock-off is more important?

Posted in: Media firms lose control of news as tech platforms rise See in context

People don't read real news on Facebook because they don't know the difference on their smart phones. They re-post their friend's propaganda, and this will be the death of true journalism. Nobody cares about the truth if the lie is more entertaining.

If they want to open Pandora's Box on Embassy Attacks, let's go back and investigate Bush's administration prior to Benghazi. Here's a nice list:

Prior to Benghazi, were there 13 attacks on embassies and 60 deaths under President George W. Bush?

There's a nice water fountain in the center of the pond, and you can ride a row boat with a special someone. But it might be a little difficult to enjoy the scenery after this disturbing news.

I've heard many cases of those gators jumping out of the water and attacking small pets close to the shore, but this is the first case I've known one to take a small child. My heart goes out to that family. I can't imagine the anguish of that father failing to rescue his son.

On assuming office as governor, the telegenic French-speaking Masuzoe—a former health and labor minister—pledged an administration free of money scandals.

Well that was close enough. He turned out to have an administration of free money scandal.

They are only allowed to leave the base for now, but they still are not allowed drink. Maybe they should use a buddy system to keep each other in check. Good luck guys. It doesn't take long for a last straw to break the camel's back.

Posted in: U.S. Navy slaps drinking ban on 18,600 sailors in Japan, ends liberty See in context

As I feel bad for the innocent military personnel, this was bound to happen sooner or later. She broke the rule of drinking off base (plus driving and causing an bad accident). That's the straw the broke the camel's back. Don't be too hard on the commander's decision, because there have been countless bad incidents happening in Okinawa from the last few years, and those people are still screwing up down there. It's so bad there that they imposed curfew on my military friends up here on the main island. All military personnel is affected by their bad decisions.

I still don't want to believe it even as I'm sitting here watching the breaking news special report. He was such an inspiration to me growing up as a child, and he made such an impact on my life. Greatest of all time is right because Muhammad Ali wasn't a legend, he was THE LEGEND!! Float on Mr. Ali, float on.

Is there some kind of law against abandoning a live body, as well as a dead one? Geez. I am going to assume that the parents will update their story again later, since they are having such a difficult time finding the young man. There are a lot of people working hard up there looking for the little fellow.
