Dying Japanese businessman throws aposend of lifeapos party at Tokyo hotel 

Dying Japanese businessman throws 'end of life' party at Tokyo hotel A Japanese businessman with terminal cancer organised his own 'funeral' party at a Tokyo hotel and invited his closest friends and business associates along. Satoru Anzaki was diagnosed with gall bladder cancer in October but decided against chemotherapy due to the side effects. The 80-year-old took out an advert in the The Nikkei, the world’s largest financial newspaper, explaining his decision not to undergo end-stage chemotherapy. Around 1,000 guests attended the 'end of life' celebration organised by Anzaki, the former president of Komatsu, the Japanese mining equipment maker. “I am satisfied that I could say ‘thank you’ to people I met in my life,” he told Japanese media. “As I want to maximise the quality of life during the time I have left, I have decided not to receive treatment given the side effects. “I have enjoyed my life very much. I thought that being despondent is not in my nature.” He added: “I am happy to be able to convey my gratitude in my own words. “I want to make the most of the rest of my time and be put in a coffin having thought ‘my life was fun’.” One friend who attended the party said: “It was just like Anzaki to host an event like this. He values human relationships more than anything else.”

Robert Mugabe flies to Singapore in his first trip since being ousted

Robert Mugabe flies to Singapore in his first trip since being ousted Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe has left the country for medical checks in Singapore, his first foreign travel since the army forced him from office last month, a state security official said on Tuesday. The 93-year-old, who ruled the southern African nation for 37 years, resigned after the army and his ruling ZANU-PF party turned against him when it became clear that his 52-year-old wife, Grace, was being groomed as his successor. Until recently the world's oldest head of state, Mugabe had a reputation for extensive and expensive international travel, including regular medical trips to Singapore - a source of public anger among his impoverished citizens. He left Harare with Grace and aides on Monday evening, the official said. He is expected to make a stop-over in Malaysia, where his daughter, Bona, is expecting a second child. "He has gone for a routine medical trip to Singapore," said the official, who has organised Mugabe's security protection but who is not authorised to speak to the media. "He was due for a check-up but events of the last few weeks made it impossible for him to travel." The trip means Mugabe will not be in Zimbabwe when ZANU-PF endorses President Emmerson Mnangagwa as its leader and presidential candidate for next year's elections during a one-day special congress on Friday. The security official would not say how Mugabe was travelling although the privately owned NewsDay newspaper said he was on a state-owned Air Zimbabwe plane. Mugabe was granted immunity from prosecution and assured of his safety under his resignation deal, a source of frustration to many Zimbabweans who accused him of looting state coffers and destroying the economy during his time in power. Another government official told Reuters last month Mugabe had been due to travel to Singapore on Nov. 16 but was unable to leave because the military had confined him to his private home the previous day. George Charamba, a senior information ministry official, declined to comment. Under Zimbabwe's Presidential Pension and Retirement Benefits Act, a former head of st

War-scarred neighborhoods in Ukraines rebel-held Donetsk

War-scarred neighborhoods in Ukraine's rebel-held DonetskRuined houses, shell craters and deserted streets - this is a typical scene in the Oktyabrsky district of Donetsk, the largest city of Ukraine's pro-Russian rebel region that bears the same name. The self-styled Donetsk and next-door Luhansk "people's republics" broke away from central rule in 2014 after months of violent street protests in Kiev toppled Ukraine's Moscow-leaning president and propelled pro-Western nationalists to power. In this calm suburb of Donetsk, many people stood aloof of politics.
