"No matter how many times I study English, no matter how many foreign trips I take, no matter how many international conferences I present at", they are in vain. And there will always be someone who will never be loved by English."
And as for me, I was unusually self-deprecating...or rather, humble in my remarks.
No matter how many times I study English, no matter how many foreign trips I take, no matter how many international conferences I present at, they are in vain. And there will always be someone who will never be loved by English.
On the contrary, this is a business opportunity of sorts.
Online commerce has grown by devaluing the "human interface".
Then the business of aggressively picking up the pieces there should be viable.
ただ、このビジネスの対価は「金銭」じゃない方がいいな ―― と漠然と思っています。
But I'm vaguely aware that the price of this business shouldn't be "money".
"Get them to introduce me to their granddaughter/grandson as a potential mate"
"Exempt from the town board"
"treat me to dinner"
I would prefer to offer this service for values that cannot be solved by "money".
I found a comic called "Yankee and the White walking stick Girl" through an ad on the web, and I read a sample version. It's been a long time since I felt "called out of the book" and I ordered it from Amazon as soon as possible.
The comic arrived today, and after reading it in full, I was shocked.
I feel "punched" by my own desperate lack of knowledge about the visually impaired.
This is because the virus (any virus) has a survival strategy of trying to spread the infection by inflicting terrible suffering on humans for as long as possible, and by gathering people (doctors, nurses) to treat them as much as possible.
今更ながら「新型コロナウイスル = 殺人ウイルス」であることを、再認識しています。
After all this time, I am reminded that "new corona virus = killer virus".
「新型コロナウイルス疾患(COVID-19)による死亡率 7.5%」 ――
"The mortality rate from novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is 7.5%"
When I saw this phrase in the newspaper, I was pale.
- "7.5%" instead of "0.4% (mortality in daily life)" or "2% (mortality after infection)"?
- What does that mean?
- What's the population size?
- I don't care if it is lower than the West!
To tell you the truth, I was upset.
- If you're infected and hospitalized, one out of ten times I won't make it out alive?
The National Center for Global Health and Medicine analyzed the course of 2,638 hospitalized patients from March to early July 2020. At the time of admission, 68.1%, or 1,796 people were in mild or moderate condition. 840 people, or 31.9%, were seriously ill.
Ideas tied to methods (especially those that are logically consistent or tied to physical laws, etc.) tend to run to the "extreme", and when that ideas are associated with power and the masses -- it will kill millions to tens of millions of people.
I must not forget it,
I was thinking about this, and so on, while watching episode 5 of "My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong, I expexted -- final"
