    Business Insider ^ | Oct. 31, 2013 | Amanda Macias
    Three years ago, wooden toy wholesaler Yutaka Katayama picked up a camera and started taking pictures of ordinary life in Kyōto, Japan. Since then photography has become an obsession. "It's my life's work," he wrote over email. Katayama has taken thousands of pictures of the legendary ancient city that once was the imperial capital of Japan. He has also found a favorite theme: the stray cats that are found all over Kyoto. "I feel the strength to live from a stray cat," Katayama wrote. "They seem to live a quiet life always looking for food and a place to live...

    Forbes Ryan Holiday, Contributor 4/03/2012 @ 7:58AM |99,568 views Why Wouldn't Planned Parenthood Take $500,000? I tried. I really did. I was ready to arrange a $500,000 donation to Planned Parenthood in Texas. The donor was in the car on the way to meet the CEO, checkbook in hand. But then Planned Parenthood called and told him to turn around. They didnt want his money. Want is the only word for it. Because, Planned Parenthood sure as hell needs it. See, in Texas, Governor Rick Perry has viciously attacked family planning and health organizations like Planned Parenthood. Not only eliminating...

    HYANNISPORT A renter with the famous Kennedy name has some local residents complaining about his allegedly messy ways. This month, the Barnstable police and Barnstable Health Department investigated several complaints about the 70 Longwood Ave. property being rented by Matthew Maxwell Kennedy, one of nine surviving children of Ethel Kennedy and the late Robert F. Kennedy. Neighbors who asked to remain anonymous say the location looks like a "junk yard" thanks to a jumble of boat trailers, pickup trucks, wheelbarrows, coolers, a Wave Runner, and even a huge buoy out in full view. "If it was trash or...

    The following is the complete text of Mel Gibson's statement regarding his arrest for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol: "After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for which I am ashamed. I drove a car when I should not have, and was stopped by the L.A. County sheriffs. The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person.

If you're a Tar Heel basketball fan, you love him. If you're not, but appreciate accomplishment and integrity, you respect him. And if you're a smart politician, the last thing you want is to get on the bad side of him.

He was 82. Although he had been in failing health for more than two years due to bone lymphoma, his death resulted from a sudden lung infection for which he was hospitalized the previous day. Born Donald James Yarmy on April 13, 1923 [correct, despite frequently reported erroneous dates] in New York City to Irish-Hungarian parents, Adams hoped for an engineering career....

    In a world where the new "Gilligan's Island" features sexual tension between Mary Ann and Ginger, where "The Longest Yard" remake makes "Platoon" look pleasant, where Nicole Kidman can star in the big screen "Bewitched" even though she can barely wiggle her nose, let us do the world a favor: Let us brook no remake of "The Sound of Music." After all, it's not like the 1965 version is boring audiences in its current incarnation. Just mention this movie and people start smiling. Or singing. Or both. Then they start remembering their favorite things ... er ... scenes: The boat...

    Max Cleland, who made a staged appearance at the Bush ranch Wednesday, was appointed by President George W. Bush to the board of directors of the Export-Import Bank in 2003. The same Max Cleland who is spending nearly all of his time attacking President Bush is, amazingly enough, a Bush political appointee. According to a bank spokesman, Cleland makes $136,000 a year off this very cushy job. A couple of questions come to mind here: If Cleland had any decency, wouldn't he resign? Why would he accept a political appointment from a man he so loathes and thinks represents the...

Sadly, former Georgia Senator Max Cleland is now serving in a new role as John Kerry's public relations prostitute Yesterday he went to President Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas yesterday to deliver a letter. That's right...Max went right up to the gate to deliver...

    The Punisher, Marvel Comics avenging vigilante, has become a radical. As well as taking out organized crime kingpins and thugs, hes now taking on U.S. Intelligence and undermining support for the War on Terrorism. The publication of these comic book polemics coincides with the April release of the feature film The Punisher starring Thomas Jane and John Travolta. Leftist propagandizing is not new to Marvel, nor to the author of the Punisher series, Irishman Garth Ennis. Two months after September 11th, the Punisher was featured threatening the life of President George W. Bush. The story portrays the President as a...

    A New Film About Hitler: 'Max' is a look at life before the Reich John Cusack defends film's three-dimensional depiction of Hitler By Glenn Lovell Usually affable and laid back, the very embodiment of Hollywood cool, John Cusack seems uncharacteristically edgy this afternoon. He enters the room like a fugitive in a film noir detective thriller, twitchy, suspicious. The black shirt, black slacks and haze of cigarette smoke complete the image of a hounded man. "So what did you think of the flick?" he demands more than asks. This is obviously not the Cusack of "Being John Malkovich" and "High...

    By STEPHEN HOLDEN ecause Menno Meyjes's film "Max" presents a humanized portrait of the young Adolf Hitler as a desperately ambitious young painter, it has been prejudged in some quarters as an inappropriately sympathetic apologia for one of history's monsters. But as the film observes the edgy relationship of Hitler (Noah Taylor) and Max Rothman (John Cusack), the warmly solicitous (and fictional) German-Jewish art dealer who advises him, it presents a fascinating and psychologically credible interpretation of events that may have been crucial to that monster's formation.The movie has the temerity to imply that had Hitler found a patron, his...
