Man attacks people, kills 7 in Akihabara, Tokyo

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Sunday, June 8, 2008

A lively shopping district was suddenly struck by an indiscriminate murder spree on a Sunday afternoon. A young man attacked a crowd with a rented truck, and then stabbed people with a dagger, around 12:35 JST (3:35 UTC) on Sunday in the Akihabara district of Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo. The suspect, identified as Tomohiro Kat?, aged 25, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Seven people were killed, and ten injured.

The injured people include pedestrians, a 53-year-old policeman, and a taxi driver, 54, who is believed to have left his taxi in order to help a pedestrian hit by the truck. About 17 ambulances came to the scene. NHK reports that medical teams trained for disasters joined the rescue.

The dead are six men aged between 19 and 74 and a 21-year-old woman; each was identified by police.

The truck, traveling on Kanda My?jin-d?ri (Kanda My?jin Avenue), ran into the crowd at a crossing on Ch??-d?ri (Ch?? Avenue), which is a vehicle-free road every Sunday. After entering the crowd, the truck continued moving for about 30 meters. The suspect then exited the truck and began stabbing people. According to a witness, the suspect, upon being pursued by police, ran south on Ch??-d?ri and was cornered in a narrow alley. The suspect dropped his knife after the police officer drew his gun, and was overpowered by the officer and several bystanders.

The suspect has been quoted as confessing to police, “I came to Akihabara to kill people. I’m tired of the world. Anyone was OK. Today I came alone.” The suspect, a native of Aomori City, lived and worked as a dispatched temporary employee in Shizuoka Prefecture. After being held at the Manseibashi Police Station, he was sent on Tuesday to the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office.

At the scene, a table covered with a white cloth was set for memorial flowers and other offerings on the morning of Monday, June 9. As acquaintances of the dead and passersby visited, the table soon filled—almost flooded—with flowers, drink bottles, pictures, and folded paper cranes.

The incident occurred on the same date with the 2001 Osaka school massacre, in which eight elementary school students were killed.

NHK reported the incident as confirmed within 45 minutes, interrupting a news channel program for one minute. Some newspapers created special issues to report the incident as June 8 was a Sunday and also a press holiday, many newspapers in Japan were not scheduled for delivery on that evening or the following morning.

The Akihabara district is famous for its Electric Town with wholesalers and retailers of video games or electric gadgets such as PC parts, televisions and kitchen appliances. It has also become famous for distinctive trends in cultures created or supported by the youth.

Local residents, business owners, and government officials from Chiyoda Ward assembled for an emergency meeting on Monday to discuss whether the practice of maintaining the vehicle-free area on Sundays ought to be continued. The Tokyo Metropolitan Public Safety Commission is also expected to discuss the issue.

China has announced a new outbreak of avian flu today along with similar cases in Russia, Romania, and Macedonia.

China’s news agency reported that 2,600 birds have died of the H5N1 strain in northern China, declaring that the outbreak was found in a breeding facility in Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia. The government maintains the epidemic is under control.

Russia is waiting for confirmation that it was the H5N1 strain that killed several hundred ducks near Moscow; if the tests return positive it will be a major spread of the virus across the Ural Mountains, into European Russia.

A small village in southern Macedonia also suspects the strain. Plans are already made to kill 10,000 birds to contain the outbreak.

Romania confirmed that there has been another outbreak in the Danube Delta area. The strain was confirmed there last weekend, whereupon 4,500 birds were destroyed.

H5N1 is the strain scientists fear could be transmitted from human to human, causing a flu pandemic. So far 50 people have died of it, all having worked closely with birds. It is not easy to pass the disease from bird to human.

Why Many Patients Choose Dental Implants In Grove City Pa

Filed in Dentist Leave a comment

byAlma Abell

Various oral diseases, such as Periodontal disease and diabetes, may cause tooth decay, tooth loss and bone decay. To replace these teeth, the patient will normally have several options available to them, although the options usually depend on the overall health of the oral cavity. A consultation with an oral surgeon will help to narrow down the choices and help the patient choose the best option for their lifestyle. The options available may consist of dentures, a flipper, a bridge or an implant.

Most patients select dental implants because they last a lifetime whereas the other options may need replacing every three to five years. The implant also does not move and is held in place by the actual jaw bone. The other options are held in place by applying force to the adjacent teeth or gum. Because the implants are not applying pressure to the other teeth or gum, possible damage to the surrounding teeth are prevented. The implants are also known to appear more natural than the alternatives and allow the patient to chew, talk and eat however they normally eat.

For a patient considering Dental Implants in Grove City PA, a board certified oral surgeon should be selected for the procedure. The surgeon should have years of experience and provide all options to the patient clearly so the patient may select their best option. When a patient receives the Dental Implants in Grove City PA, the patient will leave the dental office with the implant in place and a temporary crown or bridge. The bone is allowed to grow around the implant for at least eight weeks. The time-frame for bone regrowth will depend on the oral health of the patient.

During this bone regrowth period, the patient will visit the surgeon that completed the initial Dental Implants in Grove City PA for oral check-ups. This is done in order to check the progress of the regrowth and the health of the oral cavity. Once the desired amount of bone regrowth is completed, the oral surgeon will then fit the patient for the permanent crown which will fit on top of the implant. After completion of the Dental Implants in Grove City PA, the patient usually feels the replacement as a normal tooth.

Vladivostok fire witnesses dispute official death toll of nine, claim at least 50

Monday, January 23, 2006

At 11:45am on January 16, in Vladivostok, Russia, a fire broke out on the three upper floors of the Sberbank building.

Photographs taken by eye-witnesses show people, who were trapped, dropping from 8th floor windows to their deaths. According to some reports the firemen who were dispatched to the scene were pre-occupied at the rear of the building. They had apparently been ordered to evacuate the bank and its management from the area, which was not under immediate threat.

Official Russian media initially denied the fire, accusing the reports of being false.

Russian media later confirmed 7 and then, 9 dead. Witnesses and those rescued from the burning building have claimed that the figure exceeds 50.

A maintenance employee who worked in the building was quoted as saying, “I know at least about 13 dead inside … that’s the least I’ve noticed, not to consider those who’ve dropped down … 8 of them dropped, looking at the three already dead on the ground, but they went through the windows without hope to be rescued … They collected and hid the dead bodies inside. I work at this building! I know its layout very well! To declare, as it become clear, a less number of the dead later.”

“My daughter worked in a justice department,” – Natalia, one of the witnesses said. “She said that there were actually much more dead – up to 70. She went on the dead bodies, getting out from the building … some of them were so scorched, that it was impossible to identify them… 9 victims? That’s a lie!”

Georic, a witness: “The cops (“menty”), whom I know, say that they’ve been loading the dead bodies all night long.”

Lelya has posted her evidence on January 21, 2006 on the web-site “My brother worked in that building, on the 6th flour. So, the night after the fire they visited the building to collect the documents, etc. and they saw how workers transported the dead bodies. He said, there were 50-60..”
