Mysterious ‘yawning fish’ discovered in Maluku Until January 2008, no one knew it existed, or if they did, they weren’t talking. A husband and wife team who were part owners of a dive shop in Ambon City, Indonesia, along with the shop’s dive guide, took the first known photos of the fish. They shared the photos with Ted Pietsch, a marine scientist at the University of Washington in Seattle, who said last year that the critter appeared to represent an unknown family (in the biological-classification sense) of angler fish.

The hunt for Adam Air flight 574 It was a fairly normal beginning of the new year, for as far the first day of the year can be a normal one. The sun was shining here and the weather looked good for the day. Maybe a little bit strange, since we are in the middle of the wet season here so in fact we have to expect a lot of rain almost every single day now. The weather is slightly strange since there is really bad weather of the Java Sea. From Southern Sumatra until as far east at the Moluccan Spice Islands the weather is bad; very high waves, strong winds and a lot of rain are pounding the area. At first you think that that is not a big deal there out at sea, at least there will be no victims in flash floods, landslides and other misery that comes with the wet season in Indonesia.

Indecency, Indonesian-style I do not have any official role within the Indonesian judicial system. But I do feel like I can provide an important advisory service in the trial of Erwin Arnada, editor of the new Indonesian edition of Playboy, who faces up to 32 months in prison for putting out a magazine with indecent pictures. I may not know much about the law or Islam, but I do know an awful lot about indecency.

Deadly ground Alinda-Jane Hannah, a New Zealander living in Phuket, was nearly killed by the Dec. 26 tsunami. Driving along a road in the beachside town of Kamala, she and her 3-year-old daughter Nakita-Rose were almost washed away by the waves as they swamped the eastern coast of the island. A sharp intimation of mortality revisited Hannah last week when a loudspeaker in a nearby mosque woke her shortly before midnight, warning of another tsunami on the way. Hannah fled to higher ground, together with tens of thousands of other locals and tourists. Now, she says, after three months of trying to forget the terror of Dec. 26, "all the awful thoughts are back."

Well don’t get scared or shocked after having a look at the pictures above because that’s not pics from Iraq, Somalia, Palestine or even Aceh. But from my most favorite military enthusiast club Code 4 where I myself am a member – a club that is very different from any sports club. A sport where one can almost feel the hardship, experience of a true fighting soldier in a fun simulated war situation.
