112 candles for oldest man

Tomoji Tanabe, the world's oldest man, turns 112.


TOKYO (AFP) - The world's oldest man celebrated his 112th birthday Tuesday with a healthy Japanese breakfast of rice, miso soup and seaweed, saying he wanted to live forever.

Tomoji Tanabe, who has been the world's oldest man since January this year, lives with his son and family in Japan's southern prefecture of Miyazaki. He keeps a diary and reads the newspaper every day.

"I want to live indefinitely. I don't want to die," he said as he marked his birthday, Kyodo News reported.

Tanabe, a teetotaller who has repeatedly said that avoiding alcohol is a secret of his longevity, was given a certificate from the Guinness Book of World Records by the mayor of his local municipality in June.

Japan has the largest population of centenarians in the world. The number of Japanese aged at least 100 years old is expected to top 30,000 by the end of September, the health ministry said in a recent report.

The Japanese people's renowned longevity is often attributed to eating the country's traditional healthy food, despite the hectic lifestyle many lead in the big cities.

But the longevity is also presenting a headache as the country has one of the lowest birthrates, raising fears of a future demographic crisis as a smaller pool of workers supports a mass of elderly.


Howard Hughes' giant Flying Boat - Popularly known as the Spruce Goose, Page 2


Captain Michael King Smith Evergreen Aviation Educational Institute The Hughes Flying Boat is now on display at the Evergreen Aviation Museum.

By February 1982, the dome intended to house the Hughes Flying Boat was ready. The Flying Boat was lifted onto a barge and floated around the harbor to be put on public display.

Howard Hughes' giant Flying Boat, the Spruce Goose, floated out of the hangar it resided inside for thirty-three years into Los Angeles Harbor on October 29, 1980. It took two days to pick it up with Herman the German and place it on land for temporary storage. On February 10, 1982, it was lifted onto a barge for transportation to the geodesic dome where it was displayed to the public for eleven years.

 Late at night on February 10, 1982, the Hughes Flying Boat is prepared to be lifted from its temporary storage location onto a barge for transfer to its display location on Pier J.

The Hughes Flying Boat, seen here on May 22, 1983, spent a decade on display to the public, illuminated by a multi-colored light show. It was accompanied by a replica of the HR-1 racing plane, and a Howard Hughes look-alike wandered around the dome, greeting visitors.

Eight 17-foot diameter propellors powered the Hughes Flying Boat.

The view of the interior of the aft end of the Hughes Flying Boat resembles the set of the old Time Tunnel tv series.

On August 10, 1992, disassembly of the airplane was begun for its transportation to another new home in Oregon. By September 9, 1992, the propellers, engines, tail cone, pontoons, wing fairings and tips, elevators, rudder, and ailerons have been removed from Hughes Flying Boat. Blue sunlight from an opening in the dome illuminates one side of the airplane.

Large portable light stands were installed to provide light for the disassembly of the Hughes Flying Boat.

Seen here bereft of its moving surfaces, the Hughes Flying Boat would shortly have its wings and stabilizers removed.

For several years the Hughes Flying Boat remained disassembled in a shelter in Oregon, awaiting the opening of the The Captain Michael King Smith Evergreen Aviation Educational Institute. Photo courtesy Richard Freeman

The components of the Flying Boat were transported to the new museum site in September of 2000. It has been reassembled and is now on display. It has received a new coat of silver paint, so it looks like it did when it made its only flight.

Stuart Brown describes Norbert Rosing's  striking images of a wild polar bear  playing with sled dogs in the wilds of Canada's Hudson Bay.
The photographer was sure that he was going  to see the end of his huskies when the polar bear materialized out of the  blue, as it were:
 Obviously it was a well-fed Bear...
The Polar Bear returned every night that week to play with the dogs..
