Day 476 { Niimi News Paper/ Crazy Things Happen In Japan/ G8 Summit } Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Day 476 { Niimi News Paper/ Crazy Things Happen In Japan/ G8 Summit }

When I got to work this morning, the office lady greeted me and showed me that apart of my name was in the local news paper. It said Dave Colly ... Instead of Dave Collymore... It was written in Katakana. The paper was saying that I got 3rd place in the Karate competition last Friday ... :) I had no clue they were going to publish this thing.

Crazy Things Happen In Japan

A man has admitted torching an Osaka pachinko parlor, telling investigators he wanted to "kill many people at once," sources close to police said Tuesday.The blaze Sunday left four people dead and 19 injured.

Sunao Takami, 41, who lives near the parlor and was arrested Monday, said he "didn't care who might die."Osaka police said Takami, a resident of Konohana Ward, told them he felt desperate about his life and he just wanted to kill someone.

"I was out of work, had no money and hated my life, and then I got the idea to kill anyone, like a random killer, and started a fire at a place where there were a lot of people," Takami allegedly said. http://search.japantimes.co.jp/mail/nn20090708a1.html


G8 Summit

It's that time of year again when the richest nations in the world gather to discuss themes ranging from the slumping economy to global warming.
Issues facing the summit participants have been transformed since the Group of Eight leaders gathered in Japan last year, when climate change and rising food prices were the topics dominating the meeting.
