Hi Blog.  Just to let you know:  My semester has started, and I have more classes than ever before (more than half of them new). So I’m quite busy:  When I’m not giving lectures, I’m preparing those lectures, grading the aftermath of those lectures, or sleeping.  So will be updated more slowly for the Fall.

Eagle-eyed Readers will as always be sending articles of note in the Comments Sections of the Newsletters, so check there for what they’ve seen of note.

Thanks as always everyone for reading!  Debito Arudou, PhD

  • In Japan Today in National the government must pay over a million yen after the death of a man in the Ibaraki detention center in 2014. I do not think the government has had to pay for damages before in similar cases. This man was from Cameroon. The detention center in Ibaraki seems to be the most notorious.
