The Seventeen Article Constitution
Composed in Chinese in 604A. D. , the Seventeen Article Constitution is the first major work of political theory in Japan. The only source of the Constitution, the Nihongi , tells us that Prince Shotoku, the imperial consort, was its author. While some Western scholars question this attribution, there's little reason to doubt the Japanese account of their history. The most important and universally foundational of the constitution's articles is the first which enjoins harmony (in Japanese, wa ). This principle became one of the most repeated values in Japanese culture and history and one still finds it in political and management theory in Japan.

BBC ON THIS DAY
1960: Scores die in Sharpeville shoot-outMore than 50 black people were killed when police opened fire on a "peaceful" protest in the South African township of Sharpeville. Eye-witnesses said men, women and children fled 'like rabbits' as up to 300 officers began randomly shooting into a 5,000-strong crowd outside the municipal offices in Sharpeville.

It is not yet clear why the police, in armoured vehicles, opened fire at approximately 1315 local time today, although it is understood some protesters had been stone-throwing.
New Football Helmet Could Save the Sport
On August 19, 2012, in week two of the NFL preseason, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Austin Collie ran 17 yards out from the line of scrimmage, cut right toward the center of the field, caught a pass, and was immediately tackled by Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor. As Taylor came in for the hit, his football helmet appeared to glance off the left side of Collie's helmet. Then the cornerback wrapped his arm around Collie's neck and jerked the receiver's head to the right. An instant later, Steelers linebacker Larry Foote came barreling in from the opposite side and slammed his elbow into the right side of Collie's helmet.
