Quote of the Day
"I will not give up on clearing landmines from the world."

-- Japanese buisinessman Kiyoshi Amemiya
Amemiya was so moved by a 1994 trip to Cambodia (one of the world's most heavily mined countries) that he set up a six-member project team within his own construction machinery manufacturing corporation to develop a mine clearing machine. It can withstand up to 10,000 explosions, can be manned or remotely controlled, and is "100 times faster than removing landmines by hand." They even have different models adapted for Afghanistan (sandy, rocky terrain) and Nicaragua (mud). Man, they thought of everything - " After the mine explodes, the metal fragments are collected with a magnet and the machine can also plow the ground and even sprinkle fertilizer." Plus, he refuses to do business with the military (both India and the US have both made offers). This guy is my hero. Thanks to Andy for the forward.
