Thoughts on 7/10/2007

Marion Jones won five medals, three of them gold, in Sydney Olympics 2000. At that time she was tested and drugs were not detected. On 5/10/2007 she admitted to taking performance enhancing drugs. Many take drugs. Some get caught soon. Others are not caught. Some win medals and keep them. Some are exposed later. At one time Carl Lewis took drugs, though it may not be in Olympics. How long can the International Olympic Association go back and take back the medals? Some medal winners may be exposed after their death. What can be done? When Marion Jones won gold medals others won silver and bronze medals. What will happen if it is found that they used drugs?

Two Koreas may become one.

Solar power and wind mills are alternatives to nuclear energy.

Japan was world’s number one economy. Its decline began with fall in birth rate. More than 10% of Japan’s people live in Tokyo. Japan should have a new capital. Kyoto and Nara were once Japan’s capitals.
