Japan Times Articles Update by Judit
HI Everyone: It's hot in Tokyo! To escape, I was at home watching TV a few weeks ago when Professor Kunihiko Takeda 武田邦彦came on and talked about how most recycling made no sense: I knew instantly that he did! I immediately made an appointment to see him. He is a great talker and a very pleasant man who explained the pros and cons of recycling and why the arguments on both sides are so heated. He sure keeps a cool head about it all! Suteki! Please check below for the interview in the Japan Times:

Television is a great source of information: I often have it on as a radio while working and look when something interesting is happening. That's how I noticed Yuko Matsuoka 松岡佑子san who was at a bookstore event and remembered that I have been wanting to interview her for years. I flew over to her place the next day and found out that she not only managed to translate all 7 Harry Potter books and some related literature--bless her eyes, mind and fingers--but stayed sane in the process, a crazy feat only one with magical powers could have managed. She is happy to be called a witch, which is also a compliment in my dictionary but I could also call her an angel. Her unbelievable story, still unfinished but already with many happy endings, includes the mysterious circumstances that allowed her company, Say-zan-sha 静山社  to secure the Japanese rights for the Harry Potter series. To find out more, look at her website:

and also please check out the article on Matsuoka san in the Japan Times:

As always, stay cool! xox Judit
