Work gets underway

Japan and the European Union have given backing to an Economic Partnership Agreement. The deal would cover about 30 percent of global GDP. That makes it one of the world’s biggest trade agreements.

(日本とEUのEPA*協定の発効に向けて)仕事が始まる、まさしく今支援した、EPA、協定、カバーすることになるだろう、30%をカバーすること、協定のこと、

-Japan and the EU demonstrated our strong political will to raise the flag of free trade high, when there are moves toward protectionism in the world.

意思を示している、政治的意思、自由貿易の旗を高く上げて、保護主義

*EPA=Economic Partnership Agreement

Under the deal, the EU will phase out* a tariff on Japanese passenger cars over seven years. They’ll do the same for sake immediately. Japan will create a quota for European soft cheeses and remove duties over 15 years. Both sides will abolish tariff on wine from the start. Both Japan and the EU will need the approval of the parliaments to put the trade deal into effect. Sources say it will probably take around two years for that to happen.

その境地のもとで、段階的に廃止する、7年間にわたって、ただちに、輸入枠を設けるだろう(数量割り当て)、関税を撤廃する、15年かけて、関税を廃止する、最初から、貿易協定を発効させる、

*She began new phase in her life when she changed her job. =彼女の人生の中で新しい段階に入った

-Although some are saying that the time of isolationism and disintegration is coming again, we are demonstrating that this is not the case.

こう言う事をいう人がいる、孤立主義、分裂(integrate=統合)、示しています、これはそういうことではない、

 


 

Fan creates amazing Castle in the Sky world in Minecraft

Minecraft players Mocchi Hajikura has recreated many of the setting in the Ghibli classic Castle in the sky. The eleven-minute video posted on You Tube starts with a detailed recreation of the airship which is attacked by Dola in the opening of the film. We are then treated to various other settings, all painstakingly built block-by-block by Hajikura over four years.

天空の城ラピュタ、ゲーム名、再現した、設定、詳細に渡る、再現、楽しむ、(長い間)苦労して

 


 

Vin Diesel faces fat-shaming on Twitter

The fast and the Furious star Vin Diesel, known for his gravelly voice and chiseled physique, was caught on vacation by paparazzi with an apparent pot belly. Although fat-shaming* used to be typically aimed at female actors, many attacked Diesel with comments such as “fat and the furious” and saying he had a “dad bod*.” However, the 48-years-old actor hit back at critics posting a photo on Instagram showing his six-pack with the caption, “Body-shaming is always wrong!”

辱め、激怒した、しゃがれ声、輪郭のはっきりした、体格、明らかな、太鼓腹、ファットシェイミング、典型的に、体、反撃する、説明文

*ネット上でさらし上げ=online-shaming、私的制裁=internet-shaming、
