105-year-old Japanese man sets new 100-meter sprint record
A 105-year-old Japanese man broke his record for the oldest competitive sprinter on Wednesday at a competition in Kyoto, Japan. Hidekichi Miyazaki finished a 100-meter sprint in just 42.22 seconds at the Kyoto Masters Athletics Autumn Competition, according to Guinness World Records.
The race marvel recently celebrated his 105th birthday, but shows no signs of slowing down. "Today my target was 35 seconds," Hidekichi said after the race, according to Guinness. "I shed tears of disappointment because I was not in good condition. I am not satisfied with today's time. But I am satisfied that I could cross the finish line.

“I’m not happy with the time,” the pint-sized Miyazaki told AFP in an interview after recovering his wind. “I started shedding tears during the race because I was going so slowly. Perhaps I’m getting old!” Indeed, so leisurely was his pace that Bolt could have run his world record of 9.58 four times, or practically completed a 400 metres race — a fact not lost on Miyazaki.

“The doctors gave me a medical examination a couple of days ago and I’m fit as a fiddle. “My brain might not be the sharpest but physically I’m tip-top. I’ve never had any health problems. The doctors are amazed by me. I can definitely keep on running for another two or three years”, he said.

Carmelia Albu – Ombudsman of the Public Broadcaster „Teleradio-Moldova”, in the service of community

Ombudsman service is an independent source of information, explanation and analysis of the Public Broadcaster’s programs and adherence to European standards and practices of broadcasting programs’ development.

Ombudsman is a mediator who handles complaints between a televiewer /radio-listener or a group of people and the Broadcaster. Ombudsman replies to the questions of TV viewers and Radio-listeners, receives and reviews complaints from people.

“Ombudsman” was first used in its modern sense in 1809 when the Swedish Parliament established the office of Justitieombudsman, who was to look after citizens’ interests in their dealings with government.

Later, in 1988, a similar service was established in media in France. It was a real "explosion” that caused the appearance of similar services in other world countries.
