I was about to leave a 'confused' emoji, which I would have regretted NOW that I went back and re-read the article. NOW I can see 'Reuters showed 70 years in one place and 75 years in another place.

I am embarrased that I almost claimed you wrong, when you are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

i OWE YOU A THANK YOU (AND SORRY) EMOJI.... AND WILL DO THAT NOW.   Cheers....

Both of you are wrong. Taken out of context below is the complete cation.

"FILE PHOTO: The flags of U.S. and Japan are hoisted as participants attend a memorial service jointly held by Japan and the United States to mark the 70th anniversary of one of World War II's bloodiest and most symbolic battles on the remote island of Iwo Jima, which is now officially called Iwo To in Japan, south of Tokyo March 21, 2015.

NOW I am seeing that also, but if it wasn't for tifino's post you and I and him may have never seen that. So thanks to YOU also.

But the 2 different years in the article did lead to confusion in cases where we read something quickly and some small detail gets overlooked until our attention is focused more perfectly on it.

HOWEVER I think the 'SAD' emoji was over reacting and the explanation post you did was very eye-opening and explicit.... Thanks for your post. It clearly pointed out 'OUR ERROR' in reading.

it is called a Scotoma 😄

I HAD TO GOOGLE THAT.

A scotoma is an area of partial alteration in the field of vision consisting of a partially diminished or entirely degenerated visual acuity that is surrounded by a field of normal – or relatively well-preserved – vision.

Yes. I think we both got it....... LOL

But thanks to that kwaibah (My Thai translates that to crazy buffalo) 555.... we both have corrected our understanding of the article).   I an indebted to kwaibah but i still resent the 'SAD' emojis in such a innocent matter as this.  Cheers

I find Reuters articles to be typically riddled with inaccuracies.
