窗边的小豆豆 - 2016-02-14 22:52:56
[Article:English][Language:中文][Book/Text:Non-fiction][World:Asia:Japan]

I finished to read “窗边的小豆豆”, it is a Chinese version of famous Japanese book “窓ぎわのトットちゃん”(by Tetsuko Kuroyanagi) or "Totto-Chan: The Little Girl at the Window".

I already read “トットちゃんとトットちゃんたち”("Totto-chan's children"). It is a record of the journey that Ms. Kuroyanagi had visited poor countries as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. Many children suffered from a civil war, unhygienic conditions, preventable disease and hunger.

Addition, I hadn't read “窗边的小豆豆” in any languages, therefore initially I thought the book is also a record of children in poor countries. But in fact, it is a non-fictional autobiography of Ms. Kuroyanagi's childhood.

In the childhood, Ms. Kuroyanagi called herself "Totto-chan"(小豆豆/xiao doudou in the Chinese book). Because she is very naughty, she had to drop out of general schools. Finally she enrolled a very unique school called "Tomoe academy"(巴学园/ba xueyuan in the book).

Probably everyone imagined once "if my classroom is a train..." but everyone also know it is just a fantasy. However, it wasn't a fantasy. The academy had used remodeling trains as classrooms.

Educational policies of the academy also are very unique. For example, the academy didn't conduct a lesson as other schools. Instead, a teacher wrote today's tasks on a blackboard first, each student may study the tasks in any order.

The original version of the book published on 1981, and this is the story before the end of the World War 2, but Japan in the 21st century still has same problems.

The principal of the academy is a very gentle person, Totto-chan had never seen that he gets angry. But someday, he got angry with a teacher because the teacher blurted out careless words that may hurt a disabled child. The principal always made an effort to give self-confidence to each child even if who has a disability.

In contemporary Japan, many people, sometimes famous people or politicians who show discriminatory opinions to the public like "the disabled are useless", "the disabled have to die" without any shame.

Someday, when Totto-chan was returning from the academy to her home, a boy suddenly threw an insulting voice to her "Korean!" She was surprised, told her mother about it. The mother wept and told her that the boy is a Korean. Because he has been subjected to insults, he believed "Korean" is an insulting word. You are a Japanese, he is a Korean, but he is a child the same as you, so you must not discriminate absolutely.

It is a story before the end of the World War 2, at this time many Japanese had looked down Korean and other Asian people. I have respect for her mother. In the 21st century, racists often appear on the major cities in Japan, they shout "kill Koreans!", "cockroach!", "I'll open Tsuruhashi(*) massacre". Police protect them and interfere anti-racist protesters. And of course, PM of Japan is a racist.

(*)A city in Osaka prefecture. There is one of the biggest Korean-towns in Japan.

"Totto-chan's children", it published on 1997, it showed us about hardship of people, especially children in poor and dangerous countries. However, on 2015, a Japanese foolish racist drew an illustration insulting refugees "good idea, let's do a refugee". Of course, the illustration was blamed by many people around the world. But the problem wasn't finished. Surprisingly, an illustrated book by the racist that has been published by Senrindo, a Japanese publisher that published a lot of discriminatory books.

Sometimes I can't believe that I live in a developed country of the 21st century.

Racist Illustration against Refugees - 2015-10-11 21:23:52
[Article:English][News:Racism][World:Asia:Japan]

A racist illustration against Syrian refugees released by a Japanese racist illustrator what is criticized around the world.

Is this manga cartoon of a six-year-old Syrian girl racist? - BBC News

Japan is a heaven of racist. Racist groups sometimes appear in major cities of Japan and they shout "Kill Koreans! Cockroach! Go home!". Many protesters try to stop their hate speech, but police protect them from the protesters.

The Japanese biggest political party LDP and the Cabinet are racist. LDP doesn't want to forbid hate speech because racists are one of main supporters and power sources of LDP.

Toshiko Hasumi, the artist drew the illustration, who is a manager of "The Group to Support Prime Minister Abe".

Facebook

I can't accept Facebook as well as the illustration, racists, LDP and PM Abe because Facebook refused to remove the illustration and took meaningless actions.

In the end of September, some Japanese people found the illustration was sharing in Facebook.

Of course, the Community Standards of Facebook forbids hate speech, thus some Japanese people, including me, reported about the illustration to Facebook. But Facebook refused to remove the illustration. Facebook claimed "We judged the photograph you reported, it's not violated the Community Standards".

The people disappointed Facebook, and a petition "Facebook must recognize an illustration insulting Syrian refugees as racism" has been started by "Don't Allow Racism Group". The petition collected more than 10,000 signatures within few days.

Oct 02, 23:06 JST, I received a mail from Facebook. It said "The decision about your report was changed", "Because the account posted the content was removed, We can't judge the content it violates the Community Standards or not". I can't recognize this meaning clearly, but it seemed the illustration was removed.

But Oct 03, 2:38 JST, about 3.5 hours later from the previous mail, I received a mail again. It said "Because the account posted the content was restored, It might be possible to view the content again". The illustration was completely restored! I can't understand what Facebook was thinking.

Because The Japan Times wrote an article about the petition and Japanese anti-racism people wrote articles/tweets in English, BBC and other media around the world they delivered articles in English and other languages.

The illustration was draw from a real photograph of a six years old refugee girl. Jonathan Hyams, the photographer took the photograph, who knew the problem and tweeted "Shocked+deeply saddened anyone would choose to use an image of an innocent child to express such perverse prejudice".

Finally, Hasumi removed the illustration. The reason is a claim of the photographer. However, she doesn't feel any remorse for her racism and insulting against refugees. She still continues to release new discriminatory illustrations.

I know racists like Zaitokukai, Hasumi, LDP and Abe they can't feel any remorse for victims of discrimination. The only way to fight against racists in this situation is locked them out. If SNS companies deny their contents, they lose important ways to distribute their racism.

But Facebook claims the illustration doesn't violate the Community Standards. It means this kind of contents is allowed on Facebook. In other words, it means Facebook declared it is being an important tool to distribute racism.

I strongly protest against Facebook.

Emergency Special: Do you know the hate business? - 2015-06-30 21:54:46
[Article:English][News:Racism][World:Asia:Japan][Entertainment:Movie/TV]

Fuji TV subtitling error has South Koreans say they 'hate' Japan(The Independent)

In today's Japan, hate-Korea/China contents have grown into big business. Many Japanese blogs have propagated anti-Korea/China false rumors for money, many publishers have published "hate" books, some TV and radio stations have made "hate" programs.

On June 5, 2015, one of major Japanese TV stations Fuji TV broadcast "Friday Premium - Akira Ikegami's Emergency Special! Seemingly we know but don't know well mystery of Korea".

This photograph is an advertisement for the program on a newspaper:

Source of this image: nocchi99's tweet
Blurb: Do you know the true reason why Korea became "anti-Japan"?

Akira Ikegami is a very famous commentator in Japan. In addition, many Japanese people believe he is a trustful and politically-neutral person. However, that's obvious, the program is a type of hate Korea business. Unfortunately, the program was able to have very strong influence to many people.

Of course, the program induced some controversies. But surprisingly, a more horrific problem was revealed. Some audiences who have knowledge of Korean language they found out fake subtitles were used onto comments of Korean interviewees.

One of those scenes:

Source of this image: change.org - to Fuji TV: Please don't make more falsehood!
Subtitle: I hate Japan because it hurt Korea.
But she said: (Subject is unknown) has many cultures thus many foreign tourists have visited to (unknown).
*It can't identify from the program that she said about Japan or Korea or others. Fuji TV claims she said about Korea.

On 29 June, Fuji TV admitted the subtitles are untrue and posted a message of apology on its website. The TV station claims the problem is "mistake".

I can't forgive Fuji TV and Mr.Ikegami. The program is one of shameful hate-Korea business even if they didn't use false subtitles. Furthermore, Mr.Ikegami is famous and "trustful" commentator, his action is things like put a "the quality is guaranteed by Ikegami" label to the falsehood program.

Mr.Ikegami, was believed "neutral" commentator by many people, who had criticized some thing like Asahi newspaper about a controversial comfort women problem, now he fueled hatred/racism and aided to broadcast the falsehood to whole of Japan. I think he has to shoulder the very heavy and huge responsibility. And Fuji TV, Of course, It must have sense of shame.

花冠病毒 - 2015-03-16 21:15:17
[Article:中文][Language:中文][Book/Text:Novel]

我读了“花冠病毒”(毕淑敏)。

现在是21世纪早期。尽管,今世纪开始以后,人类已经遭受多种多样的病魔。SARS、新型流感、埃博拉、耐药菌、等等。

这样的状况产出多样的“病毒”关联虚构作品了,我平常喜欢这系列作品们。其中,我最喜欢的作品是电子游戏的“Pandemic”系列。


“Pandemic 2”的画面。玩家是病原体,使用进化点为购买症状、传播路由、温度和药物耐性,应该消灭人类们。

我去大型书店的时候,我常常寻找中文书。二月某天,我看到了这书。因为这本在包里,我无法确认这书的内容,但我喜欢这种的小说,我决定了购买这书。

当我开始读这书,我当然起先读了前文。

如果你没有高中以上的化学知识,读这本小说,可能有一点困难。
如果你没有大学以上的医学知识,读这本小说,或许有轻微困难。
如果你没有研究生以上的心理学知识,读这本小说,一点也不困难。
如果你没有勇气和责任,没有环境危机感,读这本小说,将非常困难。

我只有一些环境危机感,其他都没有! 加上,我没有十分的中文知识。天哪! 但是,不读中文,不能成长。加上,这书的价格是二千日元以上,我不能扔这书! 我终于读了这书。幸好,实际上基本不需要化学和医学知识为阅读这书。

中国燕市遭受新型病毒叫“花冠病毒”的爆发感染。致死率非常高,感染力很大,没有特效药。燕市被隔离,人们停止无用的往来。这时候,作家罗纬芝接到了电话,这电话通知了她被选出了特别采访团员。明天以后,她将隔离里抗疫指挥部,不能自由外出和跟外面联系。

她又接到了电话,是男人。一些会谈之后,他们去无人公园为商量。他请求她,如果进入抗疫的第一线,请采取病毒株,因为需要它为研究治疗药。之后,他给她花冠病毒的“解药”…。

罗纬芝有一定心理学的知识,但不是医生,不能医学研究和治疗。所以,小说中医学侧面的描写不多。而是,抗疫之战不仅是医学之战,还是社会学和心理学之战。病毒的恐怖引起社会的恐慌、抢购、绝望等严重心理的问题。加上,她面对超越火葬场能力的大量尸体问题、外交摩擦、外国制药公司的暗中策划等多数问题。

事实,在这书中她遭遇复数的危险,但是这大多数不是花冠病毒的威胁,这大半是人们引起的问题。

我喜欢这种的作品,所以我已经阅读了数本这种的日语小说,例如“感染”、“感染列岛”等。但是,我认为我读过21世纪病毒小说中,“花冠病毒”是最佳作品。

而是,当然我有数个不满。例如,罗纬芝被感染花冠病毒的经过非常牵强的。于增风和罗纬芝的行动很不可解。当我读于增风的最终遗书,我一定理解他的行动了。但是,我一切不能理解罗纬芝的轻率行动。想到于增风的遗物内容很容易,加上袁总再三警告她,本来她应该十分小心。

当她调查尸体库里,她遭遇外国势力的人员。因为这人员穿着防护服,她不能看到他的脸,但是他知道她的名字。我猜测了他是谁,当然我对了。虽然这不是难以,为什么她不会? 这人员说了她“小姐,你的智商估计要在160以上”。真的!?

当故事进入结束阶段,一个重要人离世。我认为这是画蛇添足,我联想隐藏摄像恶作剧的电视节目。当初,我不能找到他离世的理由,我怀疑这事态的必要性。之后,发觉没有十分伏笔的真相,我失望了。

如果这些的描写是更加技巧的,这小说成为更好作品。可惜啊。

"Don't Escape" Escape Game - 2015-02-09 21:34:06
[Article:English][Entertainment:Game]

scriptwelder released Don't Escape 2, a twisted escape game.

scriptwelder has made some "escape"(or "point and click") game series, all of them are very unique and good quality.

"Deep Sleep" is probably the most popular series in scriptwelder's games, it is relatively orthodox and horror taste escape game series. You should turn off the light, then play it.

But personally I like A small talk at the back of beyond. You make a conversation with AI, discover the secret and make a decision. This game is short and AI isn't too smart.(It can't understand "May I ask your name?". Instead, I have to say "What's your name?".) However, it's very interesting.


"Can you turn on the light?"
"Why do you want me to turn on the light?"
"Of course, mankind fears the dark."
"I am sorry, I do not fully understand what you have just said."
You are just a computer, you don't feel fear when play a horror game.

Don't Escape games can be categorized into escape games, but it's "don't escape". You have to find tools, use them wisely, and you have to shut yourself up for some reason.

In the first one, you are a warewolf. Today, the full moon will appear on the night, you'll turn into a monster. You have to seal yourself tightly, or else, you'll kill or hurt people, or you are killed by people.

The second one is in a zombie-pandemic situation. You have only 8 hours, travel to find useful tools, make barricades and traps, try to survive one night.


I found the generator! If I get some fuel, I can drink hot coffee! Er, we haven't any stove? No problem, we can burn the fuel to make hot coffee.

The objective is to survive one night, any method. You don't have to make every kinds of traps, recruit every survivors or discover every tools. Instead, you have to make some decisions. For example, if you get some fuel, which you use it for the car or the generator? There is no answer, there is many ways to survive the night.


You've met a undead. If you attack the undead with your shovel, you may lose the useful shovel. You can shot the undead, but a gun sound may attract more undeads. You can leave the undead if you don't need an important item...

You can become a good person or cold-blooded demon, friendly person or lone wolf. It's a cool trade-off escape game.
