Yahoo! News - De Vere anniversary revives Shakespeare debate

Se celebran los 400 años de la muerte de Edward De Vere... que es famoso por:

Four hundred years ago today, a little known aristocrat died who may just have written plays like "Hamlet" and "Romeo and Juliet."

His name: Edward De Vere, better known by his nom de plume of Shakespeare.

A sacrilegious notion perhaps, but a determined group of history and drama enthusiasts still believes there are too many unanswered questions in the Bard's works for them to have been written by a provincial actor from Stratford.

El problema no es si Shakespeare existió o no... pero mucha gente alega que como es posible que un actor pueda haber tenido un conocimiento del funcionamiento de la corte, lugares de italia, etc. En cambio un aristocrata como De Vere podría haber tenido acceso a la corte y a viajar dada su posición acomodada...

yo pienso igual que los criticos en contra de esta idea:

Shakespeare specialist Dr William Poole from Downing College Cambridge said: "It takes only the most basic historical spade-work to conclude that each and every one of the standard objections fall flat at the kindergarten stage of reasoning.

"Some people would just like to think that an earl can write plays better than a glovemaker's son," he told Reuters.

Yahoo! News - Cops Told to Give Break to Organ Donors

No se que tan buena idea sea esta...

An edgy new advertising campaign to promote organ donation hints that police officers should cut speeders who are organ donors some slack.

"Hey policeman," a Cleveland billboard calls out, an arrow pointing to a donor insignia on a young man's license, "give this guy a break."

The advertisements by LifeBanc, the Cleveland-based organ procurement agency for 20 counties in northeast Ohio, are meant to attract attention, a spokeswoman said.

"We wanted to get people thinking," said the agency's Monica Heath, noting that 1,300 people in northeast Ohio are waiting for organs.

Councilman Matthew Zone wasn't laughing. "I think it sends the wrong message to the average Joe citizen," said Zone.

"Just because you participate in a unique program as precious as donating an organ doesn't mean (you) should be given preferential treatment," he said.

Lt. Wayne Drummond, a Cleveland police spokesman, said he had no problem with the billboard, but people shouldn't get the wrong idea.

While patrol officers have discretion in ticket writing, "in my experience, it's not typical to give someone a break because they're an organ donor," he said.

let me get this straight... Le estan dando incentivos a los donadores de organos para que puedan romper los limites de velocidad... no se si es una excelente idea (ie: mas organos para las listas de transplantes) o pesima (más accidentes de gente que se cree invulnerable, o intocable ante la ley)

En la casa del herrero, azadón de palo...

Firefighters in a Dallas suburb returned to their station to find a fire started by potatoes they left cooking on a stove, officials said on Friday.

The fire caused about $125,000 in damages to the station in Lancaster, a southern suburb of Dallas, said Fire Marshal Ladis Barr.

The blaze was extinguished late Thursday night with the help of firefighters from other stations. It damaged the kitchen and living area.

Fire officials also wanted to remind the public to make sure not to leave food cooking before stepping out.

Czech Republic - A large alcoholic drinks manufacturer has launched a marijuana flavored liquor, the company said Friday.

The drink does not contain any tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, which is the active substance in marijuana. But the beverage does have an alcohol level of 16 percent, said Jiri Janak, the head of liquor production at Drinks Union.

"We produce it from hemp, but there's no THC in it," Janak said, adding he has received no complaints from anti-drug activists.

He said the flavored vodka is sold mostly in large supermarket chains and in some restaurants.

Singaporean sets SMS world speed record | The Register

Kimberly Yeo, 23, entered 26 words in just 43.24 seconds to claim the title at Singapore's Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza against 125 rival quick-thumb artists.

Ultimamente se ha dado una invasión de celebrity bloggers en la blogosfera, los buenos muchachos de Onion se dan a la tarea de criticar algunas. Ejemplo:

Blogger: Billy Corgan


Claim to fame
: Singer-guitarist for The Smashing Pumpkins and Zwan

Current project: Working on solo album, writing poetry

Overall tone: Conversational. Corgan aims his blog at readers who are already interested in his every move. Just in case they're not, Corgan does mention that mean-spirited e-mails won't reach him—someone else reads them first.

Is God in the blog? All over the place. "I would not be here if it wasn't for God... One only needs to look at a bumblebee on a flower to know there is a higher power than lil' ol us."

Political leanings: He doesn't like George W. Bush.

Bloggings he may one day regret: Bashing his former bandmates. "The truth is that James Iha broke up the Smashing Pumpkins... not me, not jimmy, but james... did it help that d'arcy was fired for being a mean-spirited drug addict, who refused to get help? No."

Only for the diehards: A brief summation of Billy's vacation with his friend, the author and "gifted psychic" Sonia Choquette.

Not made up: "I even love my enemies... that doesn't mean I want to hear them speak, but as one of God's children I say I love you, too... I am on a mission, to love, to rock, to heal, and to help light the path for as many as I can."

Yahoo! News - School Gives Transvestites Own Restroom

Only in Thailand...

Snubbed by both men and women, transvestite students at the Chiang Mai Technology School just wanted a restroom to call their own — and were granted their wish.

Dubbed the Pink Lotus Bathroom, the facility is exclusively for the school's 15 transvestite students and features four stalls, but no urinals. On the door hangs a sign with intertwined male and female symbols.

"They would come in the morning and use the women's bathrooms, but the women were annoyed, didn't like it or played pranks on them," said Posaporn Promprakai, registrar of the school in Chiang Mai province, about 360 miles north of Bangkok.

The transvestites — who must wear male attire at school but are allowed to sport girlie hairdos — switched to the men's bathrooms, only to run into more trouble.

"The men teased them, chased them, and they came screaming and in tears again," Posaporn told The Associated Press.

So Posaporn designated a lavatory just for them, telling the vocational school's 1,500 students to just use their own restrooms.

The transvestite bathroom opened last fall, but this week attracted the notice of local media. Gays, cross-dressers and transsexuals are generally accepted in easygoing Thai society.

"We don't support their decision to be transvestites. We are just trying to solve the problems of one group that is unhappy at school," said Posaporn. "They don't get teased in the bathroom anymore. They're much happier."

a eso llamo escuelas progresivas.

Una buena guía de referencia de Mitología.

Greek Mythology : ATHENA Also known as ATHENE

ATHENA: Greek Goddess of War, Wisdom, Art, Technical Skill and Creative D.I.Y.

The daughter of ZEUS and METIS, Goddess of Wisdom, she almost didn't get born as the insecure ZEUS, not wanting a daughter cleverer than himself, swallowed METIS at the crucial moment.

But it wasn't long before strange tapping and banging noises began to emanate from inside him. What on earth was she doing in there? He was getting a headache.

A little while of this and the pain began unbearable. HEPHAESTUS, hearing the cries of agony, came running in and bashed his dad over the head with an Olympic wrench.

And from the split in ZEUS's skull sprang forth his daughter ATHENA. She was fully grown, fully dressed and fully armed with newly forged weapons and helmet. That's what all the noise was about.

Although wise and thoughtful, ATHENA is no shy maiden. Her best friend is NIKE, the Goddess of Victory, and she carries the Aegis, a flashy-looking device for zapping enemies.

She is, of course, highly skilled in arts, crafts and matters of intelligence. Her symbol is the owl, and in matters of wisdom she is always right. After all, who's going to argue with a War Goddess?

Yahoo! News - German 'Samurai' on the Loose in Woods Near Berlin

ó: im Ende kann es nur eins geben, que babelfish me dice que es la traducción al alemán de: In the End there can be only one!!!

A camouflage-clad German man wielding a samurai sword attacked at least seven hikers in forests west of Berlin, performing sword tricks before ordering them to leave the woods, police said Friday.

They suspect a 46-year-old local man who trained in martial arts and survival skills in camps in Papua New Guinea and Vietnam to be the attacker.

"He's dangerous and has been hard to find because he wears camouflage," said Catrin Feistauer, spokeswoman for the Nauen police department. Police have used infrared cameras mounted on helicopters to try and track him down.

The man pushed two elderly people off their bikes and, flashing his sword, shouted at them to leave the forest. He later tried to drive a young couple out of the woods. No one was seriously hurt.

"It's frightening because the violence level has increased each time," Feistauer said.

Sanrio approved this design without batting an eye, and the product enjoyed modest sales in toy shops and in family restaurants like Denny's and Coco's. It wasn't until 1999 or so that people began to catch on to the fact that the Hello Kitty massager had other potential uses, and with amazing speed, they started popping up in adult videos in Japan. The next thing anyone knew, they had changed into a cult adult item, sold in vending machines in love hotels -- after all, what self-respecting man wouldn't buy his girl a Hello Kitty vibrator when she asked him for one?

Yahoo! News - Boy Writes Apology in Blood for Dozing in Class

Después de tantas notas que se preguntan por qué los adolescentes japoneses estan tan locos...

una pequeña clave:

fucked up teachers:

A Japanese teenager was forced by his teacher to write an apology in blood after dozing in the classroom, the school's principal said on Monday.

The teacher later went to high school principal Hiroaki Dan and confessed what he had done, Dan told Reuters.

The teacher had apologized to the 17-year-old boy and his parents, Dan said, confirming a local media report of the incident, which happened last Thursday.

He said the boy was taken to the staff room of the school in Fukuoka City, southern Japan, after being caught asleep during a lesson. The 40-year-old male teacher handed the boy a box-cutter and paper and told him to write an apology in blood.

The teacher left the student, who then cut his finger and began to write an apology using his own blood.

Other teachers in the staff room did not notice what was happening, Dan said.

"To ask a student to write in their own blood is something I just can't imagine," he said.

German police are hunting three bandits who held up a self-service strawberry farm with a pistol and a knife -- for a five-pound basket of strawberries.

Germany's AZ newspaper reported on Wednesday that the three men filled their basket with strawberries at a "pick-your-own" farm in the southern town of Taufkirchen near Munich.

When the farm saleswoman approached the men in the field to take their money, they drew their weapons. She fled while the thieves escaped in their nearby car, the daily reported.

Straight Dope Staff Report: When the zombies take over, how long till the electricity fails?

No se si esta información disminuirá el número de pesadillas de zombies... o si solo le dara mas y mejores detalles... pero bueno la premisa es la siguiente:

Cuando el error humano/virus extraterrestre/hell on earth se presenten en forma de zombies... Cuanto tiempo tardaria en acabarse la energia electrica???

Despues de un detallado analisis de todos los tipos de plantas electricas (carbon, nuclear, gas, etc) esta es la conclusión:

Bottom line? My guess is that within 4-6 hours there would be scattered blackouts and brownouts in numerous areas, within 12 hours much of the system would be unstable, and within 24 hours most portions of the United States and Canada, aside from a rare island of service in a rural area near a hydroelectric source, would be without power. Some installations served by wind farms and solar might continue, but they would be very small. By the end of a week, I'd be surprised if more than a few abandoned sites were still supplying power.

los datos anteriores son para un zombificación total y repentina. shazam!, para un proceso gradual de zombificación tenemos:

Fuel supply would eventually be a problem. Hydro plants would fare best, essentially having an unlimited fuel supply given normal rainfall, and could operate until some essential component failed or wore out. Nuclear plants could run for perhaps a year or more before they would need refueling. Refueling is a tricky operation requiring many specialized personnel, and it's doubtful that a nuclear plant could effectively refuel if 90% of the nuclear technicians and engineers in the country were running around glassy-eyed in the parking lot. Coal power plants on average have maybe 45-60 days' worth of coal on hand. If the power output of the plant were reduced, this could be stretched for six months or more, but eventually it would run out unless deliveries could be maintained. There are a few mine-mouth coal power plants in the U.S. that could conceivably run for years, provided enough miners and operators remained un-zombified. Natural gas plants might be the most vulnerable, since maintaining the gas wells, balancing the gas flow, and otherwise keeping the pipeline system intact requires considerable effort. In addition, most power plants have little or no gas storage available on-site, so a zombie situation could put natural gas plants in a real bind.

la sugerencia de la mejor alternativa:

So there you have it. As to your final question, I can suggest a better tactic than relying on solar. Go to the abandoned hardware stores, load up a flatbed trailer with gasoline generators, and take them and a few dozen tanker trucks of gasoline to your house. You could have power for a long time, possibly years or more, until the zombies finally come for you.

IOL: Interpol hunt four in Japan's biggest robbery

El robo mas grande en Japón.

Tokyo police are to seek an international arrest warrant for a British woman and three Serbs suspected of pulling off Japan’s biggest robbery.

The four are accused of stealing 12 pieces of jewellery, including a 125 carat diamond necklace worth £15 million, from a store in Tokyo’s exclusive Ginza district in March.

Police have already obtained domestic arrest warrants for the four on charges of robbery and assault, Kyodo News agency said.

They plan to ask Lyon-based Interpol to place them on an international wanted list.

The four suspects are a British woman in her 50s and three Serbs – two men in their 30s and a woman in her 20s.

The two women reportedly helped scout out the Le Supre-Diamant Couture De Maki store before the robbery and kept a lookout as the two men entered the store posing as customers.

After immobilising a clerk with pepper spray, they smashed through a glass showcase to steal Yen3.4bn (€25.5m) worth of jewellery before escaping on a motorcycle.

The robbery was Japan’s largest-ever in value.

The group fled Japan for France using fake passports.

Quien lo hubiera dicho, en Virginia al darse cuenta de que habia un inusual y creciente numero de mujeres (en proceso?) adolescentes embarazadas, se dedicaron a crear una campaña de Espectaculares: "Isn't She a Little Young?"

"Virginia Billboard Campaign Asks Men Not to Have Sex With Young Girls
To combat what appears to be rampant sex between men and young old girls - 219 births among 13 and 14 years old girls from men over 18 in 1999 and 2000, the Virginia Department of Health has launched a statewide billboard campaign telling men to keep it in their pants. With headlines, 'Isn't She A Little Young?' and 'Sex With A Minor, Don't Go There' the campaign also appears on posters, coasters and napkins in bars - the likely hangout for these sexaholic men who seem to be incapable of getting it on with women their own age.

If anyone has pictures of the actual billboards, you simply must send them to tips at adrants dot com."

Ananova - Woman marries a month after being stabbed by husband

No se que es esto... una cosa si se... Love it ain't

A Warwickshire woman married a man just a month after he stabbed her for having pre-wedding jitters.

Katrina Grant, 36, needed 12 stitches and suffered a collapsed lung after being stabbed by her 22-year-old fiancee Luke in a drunken attack.

He was later given a suspended sentence, but while he was on bail the couple from Nuneaton got married.

She told the News of the World: "People think I'm crazy. They don't understand how I could marry Luke after what he did, but no one knows him like I do.

"I love him. He's worth a second chance. He'll never hurt me again."

Luke, who is now seeing a psychiatrist to control his jealous rages, said: "What I did was terrible."

Kid A is walking the streets.

Apenas me cayo el veinte que tenga algo que ver con Radiohead... Pero siendo ponchorama... no vamos a hablar de musica...

Kid A es el asesino serial japones de 14 años, que por no ser 13 meses mayor se libro de la pena de muerte.

y ahora cumple 21 años... y es liberado...

He has supposedly recovered from the sexual sadism that drove him to attack and wound at least five people with a hammer, two of them mortally.

In fact, he later severed the head off Jun Hase, an 11-year-old boy he had killed, filled the mouth with a threatening letter and placed the head on the front gate of an elementary school like some sort of warped trophy. His killings so shocked Japan, the normally tight-lipped Justice Ministry took the unprecedented step of publicly announcing his release from the reformatory where he has spent the past seven years apparently atoning for his sins to the extent bureaucrats deemed he could be released.

Robbers of trifling sums serve longer sentences.

Only his release was announced, however, not his identity.

And his address remains a secret, so he could be anywhere in Japan.

Anywhere in Japan... that is a comforting thought... Scared much??

"Youth A is known for being a hard case (for years he refused to meet family members when they went to visit him). There's a high likelihood he's only pretending to have reformed so he can get out on the streets again

Noel Carino ran for the Philippine House of Representatives in 2001, but it took him three years to be declared the winner — just in time for him to enjoy his office for one day as Congress ended its session Friday.

Carino, a businessman, lost the 2001 elections in an initial tally, but a recount later showed he won by 2,000 votes.

His opponent, however, appealed to the Supreme Court.

On Thursday, the court ruled in Carino's favor, and he was sworn in Friday, Congress's last working day.

"I'm glad that finally, the people's mandate was respected," Carino told reporters.

Japan schoolgirl killer 'sorry'

Satomi Mitarai, 12, bled to death at her school on Tuesday
A Japanese schoolgirl who killed her classmate has offered an apology to her family and the victim's relatives as more details emerged of her motives.
The girl reportedly told police she was annoyed by comments Satomi Mitarai made about her appearance during their exchanges in internet chatrooms.

This has prompted Japanese media to question the dangers of this form of communication.

Satomi Mitarai, 12, died on Tuesday after being slashed with a small knife.

"She wrote something bad about my appearance several times on the Net a few days before the incident. I didn't like that, so I called her (to a study room) and slashed her neck after getting her to sit on a chair," the Yomiuri Shimbun quoted Mitarai's killer, 11, as telling police sources.

Her lawyers said she had begun to question her actions, and had repeatedly expressed remorse.

"I wonder why I did it. If I thought and acted properly it wouldn't have happened. I would like to apologise," she was quoted as saying.

The Mainichi newspaper said she told investigators she had planned the murder four days earlier, and had been inspired to use a paper cutter after seeing the method used in a television drama.

"I saw that drama. I thought I'd do it that way", she was quoted as saying.

The Asahi Shimbun said classmates at Okubo Elementary School in Sasebo, southern Japan, had often seen her reading horror books, including Battle Royale, about schoolchildren killing each other.

sorry? I don't think sorry is going to be enough...

Yumiko | A R T W O R K

Yumiko Kayukawa was born in the small town of Naie in Hokkaido, Japan. The panoramic beauty of her surroundings and feelings of communication with the native animals inspired her to paint the things around her. As a teenager she also fell in love "with the energy and giddiness" of American pop-culture through her exposure to rock n' roll, film, and fashion. By the age of 16, she had debuted into the art world with a comic-book (Manga) feature.

After graduating from Art school, she continued to paint, but struggled with truly expressing herself in her art. Fortunately, this frustration took a dramatic turn during a visit to Seattle where Yumi painted a picture at the request of an American friend. In comic-book style, two girls sit entwined atop a mushroom, Japanese symbols and American pop art styles melding together in lively color and bold lines. Yumi now realized her art persona - sagacious Japanese tradition in synergy with the jubilant irreverence of American pop culture.

What does she see for her future as an artist? "I'd rather my paintings hang next to rock star pin-ups than on museum walls. Ultimately I want to connect with people all over the world on that level", she says with a smile. When we look at her work, it's obviously just a matter of time.

Ananova - F*cking villagers vote against name change

The people of fucking...

Residents of an Austrian village called F*cking, have voted against changing the name.

The 150 or so people who live in the village debated the issue after roadsigns kept being stolen - many by British tourists.

Spokesman Siegfried Hoeppl, said: "Everyone here knows what it means in English, but for us F*cking is F*cking - and it's going to stay F*cking - even though the signs keep getting stolen."

He said the name came from Mr F*ck and his family who settled in the area 100 years ago, and added "ing", meaning village or settlement.

The villagers didn't find out about the English meaning of the word until Allied soldiers stationed in the region in 1945 pointed out the alternative meaning.

Local newspaper editor Menhardt Buzasa said there had been an increase in the number of signs being stolen, and said British tourists were usually blamed.

"I do not agree it is just the British. F*cking is universal. Germans use it as much now as the British, and it also means the same to the Americans, Australians and anyone in the English speaking world," he said.

Similar votes on a name change have taken place recently in neighbouring Austrian towns Wank am see and Petting, as well as in Vomitville and Windpassing.

Yahoo! News - Japanese Man Sues Over Iraq Kidnapping

Activista japones que fue secuestrado demanda a Gobierno...

A Japanese activist who was briefly held captive in Iraq has sued his own government, saying its decision to send troops to the region angered his kidnappers and was to blame for his ordeal.

Nobutaka Watanabe, 35, is seeking the equivalent of $46,000 for mental and physical hardship he suffered during his four days as a hostage, his lawyer Masatoshi Uchida told The Associated Press Wednesday.

"Mr. Watanabe believes his kidnapping was the result of Japan's military presence," said Uchida. "His captors told him that he had been taken because he was from a country that had sent troops to Iraq."

duh! Tal vez el Sr. Watanabe no ha leido la recepción que tuvieron sus compañeros de secuestro, donde el publico les ha gritado de cosas en el aeropuerto y en los programas de television... like "you shouldn't have been there in the first place"

buena suerte con la demanda... si se tardaron decadas en pagarles a las victimas koreanas de la 2nda guerra...

Yahoo! News - Pig's blood halts German motorway

A German motorway has been flooded with 34,000 litres of pig's blood after an accident that caused a 20 km (12 mile) tailback, police say.

A Dutch tanker spilled its bloody contents on Wednesday after colliding with a truck next to a slip road, police in the central town of Rotenburg said. Heavy rain obstructed the clean-up of the blood, which was on its way for disposal in Hamburg.

Yahoo! News - Jail Offers Violent Inmates Aromatherapy

Esta nota causó indignación entre la sociedad ya que se tomo por el lado de: "Spa para asesinos y violadores"

Inmates at a jail in Ciudad Juarez on the U.S. border, where more than 300 women have been murdered over the past decade, are enjoying aromatherapy and piped classical music as part of a novel rehabilitation program.

This month the prison authorities began burning scented oils and playing soft music for a group of 25 "violent and disturbed" inmates.

"It is a unique program to help the most psychologically and socially damaged prisoners, whose grave crimes have shaken society," prison governor Arturo Herrera told Reuters.

"We play them Mozart and give them occupational, play and aroma therapies to relax them for evaluation."

The group receiving the special treatment includes murderers and rapists serving up to 40-year sentences. They will be integrated into the mainstream prison system once they have been evaluated.

Yahoo! News - Indiana Boy Wins Spelling Bee, Runner-Up Faints

El duro mundo de los concursos de deletreo...

In a new definition of a fainting spell, the runner-up in the National Spelling Bee apparently fainted on Thursday when asked to spell "alopecoid" in the contest eventually won by a 14-year-old Indiana boy.

Akshay Buddiga, 13, from Colorado Springs, Colorado, recovered enough to spell the word correctly and continued into the championship round, but he stood out from the crowd by spelling from a seated position, unlike the other competitors, who remained standing as they spelled.

Buddiga lost on the word "schwarmerei," a German term that means adulation.

He got plenty of that and a standing ovation from the hundreds of defeated spellers, their families, friends and teachers who watched the three-day competition.

The champion was David Tidmarsh, whose final winning word was "autochthonous," meaning indigenous.

Tidmarsh, from South Bend, Indiana, also triumphed over such spelling nightmares as "sumpsimus," "sophrosyne" and "serpiginous."

That feat won Tidmarsh a $12,000 cash prize and a huge loving cup he seemed barely able to grasp after the strain of spelling. As soon as he realized he had spelled the final word correctly, he covered his face with his identifying placard and acknowledged later he was crying tears of joy.

"I was so nervous, I couldn't even begin to explain," Tidmarsh said after it was all over. "I was just hoping I got a word I had studied."

He said his favorite movie was "Spellbound," a documentary about the National Spelling Bee, an annual rite of nerves for children under the age of 16 administered by E. W. Scripps Co. and some 250 other sponsors.

Tidmarsh and Buddiga were among 265 spellers who gathered in Washington from across the United States.

Asked if the experience was as good as Hollywood could make it, Tidmarsh replied, "It's even better."

A jobless Argentine who found $50,000 (27,200 pounds) buried in rubbish and promptly bought a house, two cars and a corner shop is being sued by a woman claiming her maid mistakenly had thrown out the cash.

"All I can say is that I am no criminal," Paulo Altamirano, a 46-year-old man who ekes out a living by collecting street garbage in the central city of Cordoba, was quoted as saying on Thursday by local DyN news agency.

Emilia Mascoy, a 70-year-old store owner, brought a lawsuit for fraud and demanded her money be returned. She says a maid mistakenly threw out the box of cash during a spring cleaning at her home, DyN reported.

Yahoo! News - Porsche drivers have most affairs

yeah whatever... por qué los alemanes quieren medir todo por el tipo de coche que alguien maneja??

BERLIN (Reuters) - Don't trust the driver of a fast car.

Porsche drivers are less faithful than any other group of car owners, with almost 50 percent of them cheating on their partners, a survey published in German magazine "Men's Car" has revealed.

Among German men, Porsche drivers were the least faithful, with 49 percent admitting infidelity, followed by BMW drivers at 46 percent. Among women, Audi drivers were the least reliable, 41 percent admitting to affairs.

The most faithful group were owners of Opel-Vauxhall cars, with only 31 percent of male and 28 percent of female drivers in Germany having committed adultery.

The survey was carried out by Hamburg-based opinion poll institute Gewis, which questioned 2,253 male and female drivers aged 20 to 50. The results follow similar findings from the same magazine showing that male BMW drivers had the most sex.

Girl slits classmate's throat

Otra nota de Japón... pero esta muy macabra...

pequeños fragmentos de la historia:

AN 11-year-old girl led a fellow sixth-grader to an empty classroom during their lunch hour, slit her neck and arms with a box-cutter, and left her to bleed to death.

The grisly murder at an elementary school in southern Japan yesterday sent shockwaves through the local community, leaving many asking how such a tragedy could strike in their midst.

They did not release the assailant's name, according to Japanese legal protections for juvenile offenders.

Serious juvenile crimes have become a rising concern in Japan in recent years.

Last July, a 12-year-old boy in Nagasaki - a city just north of Sasebo - was accused of kidnapping, molesting and murdering a four-year-old by shoving him off the roof of a car garage.

In the same month, a 14-year-old boy was arrested for beating a 13-year-old classmate to death in Okinawa.

Just three years ago, lawmakers lowered the age of criminal responsibility to 14 from 16 amid public outrage over the brutal beheading of a 10-year-old boy by a 14-year-old in 1997. Last year's Nagasaki murder led many to wonder whether the line should be lowered again. | Girl slits classmate's throat (June 2, 2004)

Acrylic on canvas, 20 x 24 inches (sold)

In 1982, while attending his bachelor party at a suburban Detroit strip club, Chinese American Vincent Chin was lured into an altercation with Ron Ebens and his stepson, Michael Nitz, two white auto workers who blamed him for the ailing U.S. auto industry and the consequential loss of jobs. “It’s because of you little motherfuckers that we’re out of work,” witnesses recalled hearing. The violence escalated and the two auto workers bashed Vincent Chin’s head with a baseball bat, killing him.

Ebens and Nitz pled guilty and received a sentence of three years’ probation and a $3,000 fine. Judge Charles Kaufman reasoned that Ebens and Nitz did not have criminal records and were not likely to violate the terms of their parole. Later, the judgment was appealed, but the respective juries acquitted each of them. Neither served any jail time for his crime.

Vincent Chin’s mother, totally disheartened, left the U.S. and returned to her native village in China.
