Lost in Translation [その他]

The Japanese Red Cross Society does not refuse the support from all over the world.

Last night, I talked to the Japanese Red Cross Society(JRCS) and they admitted that JRCS had not extensively appealed for donations for the damages caused by the earthquake and tsunami, however the donations are solicited on the International Red Cross Society website. Also the JRCS said that the donation from all over the world would be used for the reconstruction with deepest gratitude.

About the donations to Japan

The information bulletin from IFRC on 15 March says that Japan did not need any support, which turned to be the news source for many cases. In my opinion, this information had been transmitted before the damage situation became apparent. In fact, the damage is extensive, and over 10 thousand lives and 500 thousand houses are losted. JRCS and IFRC beyond doubt are raising money to save the disaster victims. We ask all the media concerned parties in countries to confirm the latest information.

The German pump car made by PUTZMEISTER prevented the field of nuclear accident from overheating, which has averted the worst situation. Japanese citizen are very thankful for the German technical capabilities.


Dear Friends, [その他]

I strongly hope you notice my weblog.


9 days have passed since the earthquake hit Japan.

After the earthquake I have received e-mails of condolence and encouragement from my dear friends overseas. Every time I replied "I'm okay".
Certainly I was not hurt, and I spent the past few days without big problems. Now I can manage to overlook the situation around me calmly, and I have noticed.
Still people who lost homes and families are staying evacuation centers and there they spend sleepless nights. They are waiting for help without sufficient medicines, food and electricity, in cold and snowy environments.
One of the survivors said in the radio program, "I lost everything, but I can't help accepting the situation. I don't envy other people, so I want people in other areas live on same as usual" This reveals his true feeling which Japanese people have in common; people tend to feel guilty when they bother others. But we should know the harsh reality; if we live on as usual, many more people's lives will be lost, and also their hope will be lost. The help from around the world as well as people in other areas in Japan is needed.
So I would like to ask our friends, everyone in the world. please save Japan. Please help the afflicted people. I have given a donation through International Red Cross Society. I'd like to ask anyone in the world for contribution as well.

The nuclear power plant accident have caused a lot radiation leakage in nature. If it is far from Fukushima, it is said not to be harmful for human health. I believe that too. The air and the sea alike is connected to every part on the earth, so I am afraid this will have some influence to people in the world, since they should receive radiation even a little which should not be in nature. The Japanese government has focused on dealing with the accident and cannot afford to express concerns about that. So I want to apologize to you as a Japanese person. In order not to forget about this accident forever and not to allow this kind of accident happen again, I will seek to act for the abolition of nuclear power plants.

Now what I can do is donation and fund-raising, which will be helpful for the reconstruction. I may have to resort to your idea and resource in the future again. Please cooperate when the time has come.

Finally I would really like to thank the rescue of your country, who rushed to Japan for helping us.

Thank you.

プロレスラーの風香さんが試合を終えてサイン中。キレイです。女子プロレスのレスラーと言うと、ガタイが良くて金髪で男言葉のイメージだったけど、ぜんぜん違うね。最近の女子格闘技の選手ってフツーにキレイな人が多い。右隣にいるニット帽に眼鏡の男性はロッシー小川さんだな。実際のところ、選手は誰も女子プロレスだけで食べていくのはかなり大変らしい。というかムリだ。女子プロレスラーのほとんどは好きなプロレスを続けるために別の仕事をしている。まあ、今はどんな業界でもそんな感じかも知れないけど。風香さんは来年の春で引退だそうです。

スタジオキャット [その他]

昨年の夏に少しだけ立ち寄って、今年もまたやってきた謎の渡り猫。

長毛でしっぽが長くてふさふさ、顔がキリリとした逆三角形なので、たぶんノルウェジャンフォレストキャットのミックスだと思う。典型的な顔模様だし。今回は長逗留で11月になってもここを離れない。というか、もうここを定住の地と決めたようにも見える。朝、ドアを開けるとどこからともなく扉をすり抜け、ぼくの仕事椅子の上で二度寝が始まる。お腹が空くと何か食わせろと上目遣いでカツアゲに来る。ネコ缶は一食で並一缶完食する。カリカリはロイヤルカナンしか食べない。そしてまた寝る。たまに起きてまた寝る。また起きるとこちらに忍び寄り、足下をトントンとノックして、ブラッシングしてくれとねだる。足がライオンみたいにデカイ。体はかなり重い。目つき悪い。トイレの躾はちゃんとしている。外に出そうとすると嫌がる。屋内で飼われていた猫なのかな。今さらノラネコ社会には溶け込めない様子だ。鼻にケンカの傷がある。

近所の人は、毛がもじゃもじゃなので「ケモさん」と呼んでいる。さん付けだ。ぼくは心の中で「カツシン」と呼んでいる。最初に来た頃はスゴく汚れていて毛玉だらけだったけど、シャンプーシートで全身を拭いて、ブラシをかけると見違えるようにふわふわになった。迷い猫サイトは一通りチェックしたが、該当する猫は見当たらず、何かの理由で捨てられたのかも知れない。そのうち獣医に連れていって予防注射を射ってもらおう。年齢や病歴も分かるはず。それで落ち着いたら里親探そうと思っている。
