comment Is there English counterpart to Japanese proverb, 一期一会 , meaning “Cherish once -in -a-lifetime encounter”?
I heard "YOLO" for the first time. Is it a popular acronym among native English speakers?

@anemone. I linked Wikiquote for the first time, which I didn't know its existence,, and found many quotes refering to the importance of treasuring once-in-a-life experience. It's really helpful anf informative. I'd like to make the best use of it.Thank you for your providing input.

comment Did I hear rightly – “Shiite Houthis are stated in to return the President to office.”
@Gaurave.I mistyped "now" for "nor" (It sounds so) . So I edited the corresponding word in your answer so.

@Andrew Leach. I replayed the line in question of the passage recorded in the tape. I wish I could record the news in digital media and upload it in the site. But I'm a total idiot in handling pc. However, Gaurav's anser seems very plausible.

@Brian Hitchcock. I suspected it could be “slated” first. I replayed the line in question again and again. But the voice sounds “stated in” with clear sound of “t,” not “l.” Even accepting “slated,” “in” is unnecessary before “to return the President.” I started to think the AP news announcer misread the text, though it’s unusual.

@Mari-Lou A. I erased "words" tag. I just want to know rightly fitting words.

@Mitch. We have been listening AP Radio News through Eagle 10 - Far East Network together with members of local English speaking society. This is a transcript of the news I heard at 9:00 am Myay 15 here in Tokyo area. The part in question sounds something like “Now they are ‘stated in’ to return the President to office,” or “Now they are ‘stated realm’ to return the President to office,” I don't have a link.In either ways, it doesn’t make sense to me. I wonder what did announcer actually read out the script.
