Posted in: Apples losing their crunch to global warming, Japanese study shows See in context

Ain't that the truth! I bought my first batch up here in Hokkaido and they were soft and almost mushy chewing. Quite sad, as they are excellent when they are crunchy and sour tasting.

Ohhh boy...not reassuring news I'm afraid. IAEA burden with bureaucracy and a snail's pace on action organization. Let's pray a more serious approach will take place this time round.

Would have been a lot more appropriate if Mr. Stone was led through sites by a Japanese historian instead of a Boston professor. Anyways, this story is not worth the print!

Exactly 'globalwatcher'! CK is the American Princess for all those old folks like myself who grew up with the Kennedys. She's one of the few survivors and only in her immediate family. Wonderful that Caroline will be here with us all in Japan! This is nice news.

Yes, a prank gone wrong BUT closing down the store & taking away the guy's license for this is a bit too harsh in my opinion. Sad story for the store owner...
