Japanese woman hid mother’s body in freezer for 10 years over fear of being evicted


I feel like I've read this story before and had to check the date.

Apparently, it is a widespread scandal in Japan as many adult children rely on the generous pensions of their 90-year-old parents and hide their deaths.

I wonder if the famous Japanese long life averages are real or complete fiction

A French court will on Monday hear a case against more than a dozen multinationals, accused by a French-Vietnamese woman of causing grievous harm to her and others by selling the Agent Orange defoliant to the US government which used it to devastating effect in the Vietnam War : worldnews


I have lived in Vietnam for the past 10 years. I see Agent Orange victims every day. I will never forget the time I stepped on a pair of flip flops with a pile of clothes on them. Then I noticed that the flip-flops had feet and a face and tiny hand protruding from their clothing, holding up a stack of lottery tickets for sale. That was probably the worst case I've ever seen, but there are so many more, from the giant-headed kids whose mothers beg on the highways to the man who walks for miles with his one good arm City hauls every day. Monsanto owes these people a generation.
