    Bridge to the Gods: Tales from Kyushu

    When Europeans first visited Japan in the early 1500s it was the large island of Kyushu where they made landfall and began meeting both ordinary fishermen and farmers as well as the samurai and their lords. Kyushu was the gateway into Japan.

    Yet Kyushu was more than just an entry point for Europeans. It was the stepping stone for prehistoric migrants to Japan who came from the Mongolian steppes and other parts of Asia. It was also the gateway for Chinese culture, tea, and rice cultivation.

    A few years ago, Andrew Peter Thomson settled in Kyushu alone and began to explore. He found a host of things that elude the casual visitor - Christian samurai, Japan's first ancient rice field, its first tea bushes, yakuza gangsters, and where James Bond cleverly disguised himself as a Japanese fisherman.

    Footy Tragic

    Phil Tagell is an ordinary footy fan and grass-roots volunteer who stood up for an injured player denied the aid of the stretcher when he was accidentally knocked unconscious in an under 18 practice game in early 2009. For his efforts, he was king-hit by the umpire who denied the player the use of the stretcher. The umpire had quite a history of threatening and carrying out violence but his employers, AFL Queensland, denied all knowledge of his history, 'we knew nothing' was their defence and for 2 fractures of the skull, permanent disabilities, 8 months off work, and considerable pain and suffering, all Phil got was a bill for their legal fees.
