By James Pearson and Sohee Kim ANSAN, South Korea (Reuters) - "Change your thoughts and you change your world," reads a quotation hanging in the corridors of Danwon High School, where almost 250 students and teachers are still missing from a South Korean ferry that capsized on Wednesday. The short phrase from minister and author Norman Vincent Peale had been the school's quote of the week for early April, when 339 students and their teachers embarked on a regular school trip to the popular holiday island of Jeju. Fourteen students and teachers from the school have been found dead and 247 are still missing in what looks like being South Korea's worst maritime accident in 21 years in terms of lives lost.

A Japanese whaling harpoon vessel Yushin Maru No. 2, drags a minke whale in the Southern Ocean, February 15, 2013 in this Sea Shepherd Australia photoJapan has decided to continue its whaling programme in the Pacific Ocean, reports said Friday, despite losing a United Nations court case on its other "research" hunt in the Antarctic. If confirmed, the move will likely spark anger among environmentalists who hailed last month's ruling by the UN's International Court of Justice (ICJ) that Tokyo's hunt in the Southern Ocean was a commercial activity disguised as science. Japan has exploited a loophole in a 1986 moratorium that allowed it to conduct lethal research on the mammals, but has openly admitted that their meat makes its way onto dinner tables. Campaigners urged Tokyo to follow the spirit of the ruling, and not just its letter -- which specifically referred to Japan's hunt in the Antarctic, not its other research scheme in the northwest Pacific or its smaller coastal programme.

More than 48 hours after the 6,825-tonne Sewol suddenly listed and then sank, a small of army of more than 500 exhausted divers -- battling powerful currents in almost zero visibility -- have yet to obtain any access to the ferry's interior.
