Nice !... But , who won ???

David Maitland, a wild-life photographer captures "a Battle Royal" moment .

David Maitland's "deadlock" is this year's winner of the competition's Behaviour: Other Animals category. David said the photo was just a snapshot in the struggle between a tree-frog and cat-eyed tree-snake that lasted for hours through the night in the tropical forests of Belize.

Crisis in World Economy

For at least two weeks we were bombarded with words like recession, loss, Dow Jones down, Nikkei Tokyo down etc...
Quite scary stuff, heh ?

One thing I can't understand is why on earth do Japanese use red numbers to show gain of the index while they use green for the losses...?

I will look into the matter and let you know!
