Japan’s most active volcano began erupting on Sunday, spewing ash and dust over the neighboring city of Kagoshima. City residents are used to the mountain’s temperamental behavior—Mount Sakurajima has erupted 500 times so far this year. Clean up efforts are underway to remove the ash, which now covers much of the city. Residents are using masks and umbrellas to protect themselves, but life seems to be continuing mostly as usual. According to the Japanese news website Japan Today, this is the volcano’s biggest eruption since 2000.

@TIME 最近の長州の末裔のデタラメぶりには薩摩もんとして黙っておれんタイ、と桜島は怒りを表にした。 Sakurajima as Satsuma got angry about ultra right policy by Choushu's descendant..

To all of my American, European & Foreign friends, You all might have heard about the current situation in Egypt, kindly be informed that for some political interests and goals of some international players, the western media is trying to imply a deceiving and lying image regarding what is happening in Egypt, the Egyptian Armed Forces, Police Forces, and the current interim government. The truth is that the Egyptian Authorities are fighting against a group of fanatics disguised under the name of religion, some of them belong to the “Muslim Brotherhood” organization which has a long history of violence since the beginnings of the twentieth century, "Islamic Jihad" organization which was responsible for the assassination of Egypt's former president "Anwar Al Saddat", who paid his life as the price for his decision to go for peace with Israel after several years of bloodshed between the two sides, as well as a bunch of other militant groups who have no problem in using violence as a mean of expressing their opinions. All of these groups and organizations are linked to "Al Qaeda" terrorist organization in a way or another. The majority of moderate Egyptians, Muslims & Christians, who came out in millions to the streets of Egypt on the 30th of June demanding President Morsi to leave and afterwards on the 26th of July mandating the Security forces to fight terrorism, are strongly against those extremists and their evil goals, especially after they have adopted an extremely hostile behavior against civilians and authorities, including daily blocking of vital streets, burning governmental buildings, museums, police stations, hospitals, factories, stores, churches and mosques, terrifying people and killing whoever against them (you could easily fetch the internet for videos displaying how the security forces responded to brutal offences by bullets and sometimes rockets from the so-called protesters during the past 48 hours). On the other hand, the Muslim Brotherhood uses their Palestinian Militant Extremist allied groups and organizations to attack Egyptian lands in Northern Sinai, causing a lot of damages and loss of lives. We cannot understand the official reactions of the American and Western Governments, who have been for long suffering from terrorism over their lands and everyday they go out on their statements and their leader's speeches talking about their claimed "War on Terrorism". It is totally unfair for them to be taking the wrong and evil side, because history taught us that "what goes around comes around" and when you foster a deadly contagious virus afterwards you may at some point easily get infected with the same virus. The western people pay taxes to their governments, from which their governments by turn fund and support terrorist organizations under the cover of backing democracy, these organizations who later on launch their attacks against the western people, who funded them indirectly at first place. Naom Chomsky once said " Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism, Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it.", and We here in Egypt ask the same from the western nations, please demand from your governments to STOP supporting terror groups, because Egypt is not under an act of terrorism but in a WAR with terrorism. May God Bless Egypt, protects its people and its national loyal army & police forces.
