In what could be a major change in Japan’s policy on aircraft carriers, the Defense Ministry is mulling a plan to buy F-35B stealth fighter jets for use on its helicopter carriers, government sources said.

She has received numerous awards for her works, including a Kingsley Amis Award in 1962 (for The Country Girls), the Yorkshire Post Book Award in 1970 (for A Pagan Place), and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in 1990 for Lantern Slides. In 2006, Edna O’ Brien was appointed adjunct professor of English Literature in University College, Dublin. In 2009, O’Brien was honoured with a special lifetime achievement award – the Bob Hughes Lifetime Achievement Award – at a special ceremony for the year’s Irish Book Awards in Dublin. According to the novelist Andrew O’Hagan, her place in Irish letters is assured. “She changed the nature of Irish fiction; she brought the woman’s experience and sex and internal lives of those people on to the page, and she did it with style, and she made those concerns international.” And in the words of the novelist Colum McCann, she has been “the advance scout for the Irish imagination” for over fifty years.

In West of Sunset , Fitzgerald experiences his first cardiac episode in bed with Graham, making love, commenting after, "You're going to wear me out." I winced at what seems an invasion of privacy; recall the way Fitzgerald himself wrote sex: "Daisy comes over quite often - in the afternoons." Or, if you need more detail, here: "Then, with her knees she struggled out of something, still standing up and holding him with one arm, and kicked it off beside the coat. He was not trembling now and he held her again as they knelt down together and slid to the raincoat on the floor." Yet moments in West of Sunset more often made me smile, ruefully and sympathetically, when they sliced into the personal: Fitzgerald hiding empty liquor bottles in Bing Crosby's trash can; his eager delight in a big star knowing his novels; his lack of enthusiasm for the idea of showing Sheilah his old Manhattan haunts because "it seemed a betrayal of Zelda. At the same time he couldn't discourage her without hurting her feelings, and played along, feigning anticipation."

The Hekawis are 50/50 partners in everything they do with O'Rourke Enterprises. They make most of the company's products, usually in the form of Indian souvenirs (on a commercial scale) and whiskey for the town saloon. They are a peace-loving tribe, (mainly due to cowardice) and self described as "the tribe that invented the peace pipe", "lovers, not fighters" and "proud descendents of cowards". Profit minded, the Hekawis look to be paid when O’Rourke needs them to do something like orchestrate a fake attack on the fort and will haggle over the price and how many braves would be in the attack (when O'Rourke balks at the price, the Chief reminds him that the Apache will gladly make a real attack on the fort for free). But because it had been such a long time since they had been on the "warpath" when the series started Agarn has to teach the Hekawis how to do a war dance, a clip of which was shown in the first season opening credits. [5] Anytime the tribe wants to contact the fort they use smoke signals which only O'Rourke can read. In one episode [2] (and referred to in another), [3] the Hekawis have a "Playbrave Club" (a parody of Playboy Club ) complete with go-go dancing and 1960s style music.
