Fox News - May 14, 2010

Japanese scientists, engineers and financiers have begun work on a project that will make the construction excesses of Dubai look timid: a tower 3,300-foot high and a vertical farm balanced on a floating concrete lilypad.

A 57-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly forging documents to marry his former wife's teenage daughter, who apparently had not agreed to the marriage and could not legally marry him, police said Friday. The man, a tax accountant in Akashi, Hyogo Prefecture, brought papers to the Akashi city office in April to file for marriage with the 16- year-old high school student the day after he divorced his wife, the police said. The girl found out about the marriage filing after receiving a notice from the city office and has since sought to nullify it at a family court. (AP)

The proportion of Japan's elderly male population living alone is expected to surge within the next 20 years, according to a government white paper released Friday. Among men aged 65 or older, the percentage of those living alone is projected to jump to 17.8 percent in 2030 from 11.0 percent in 2010, according to the 2010 white paper on aging society. As for elderly women, the percentage of those living alone is expected to edge up to 20.9 percent from 19.4 percent during the same period, the white paper said. Among factors listed as behind the trend are a rise in single-person households and childless households, declining marriage rates and rising divorces. (AP)
