Asanokiri, a sumo wrestler in Japan, lost a match after his loincloth fell off --- the first time in 83 years of wrestling that this obscure rule had been enforced!

At Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Calif., doctors with poor handwriting must attend evening classes to write prescriptions more clearly!

"Chomp!" Young Kim of Seoul, S. Korea, has invented drinking straws that are edible!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) Why did Asanokiri lose the match?

(2) Who must attend evening classes at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center?

(3) What kind of drinking straws has Young invented?
