Kazuo Ishiguro honored

Japanese-born British author Kazuo Ishiguro is being celebrated around the world for winning this year’s Nobel Prize in Literature. The Swedish Academy cites him for his “novels of great emotional force.”

賞を受ける、スウェーデンアカデミー、強く感情に訴えてくる小説、

Ishiguro reacted to reporters in London.

-This is amazing and totally unexpected news for me. It comes at a time when the world is uncertain about its values, its leadership and its safety. I just hope that receiving this huge honor will, even in a small way, encourage the forces of good will and peace at this time.

予期しない、不確かな、価値観、を励ます(促す)、細やかであったとしても、

The Nobel committee says the themes Ishiguro is most associated with are memory, time and self-delusion.

テーマ、自分を欺く事

作家になった動機について語ったとき

-I grew up with a whole world in my head that I call Japan, but I don’t think it corresponded with the real Japan. What I was wanting to do was…I wanted to get this very secret, private, but very precious version of Japan down on paper. And I think that was real motivation for becoming a novelist. It was a way of preserving a world safely inside a novel.

China decides to end one-child policy

The policy was introduced in 1979 in order to reduce the population growth rate and it is believed to have prevented 400 million births. The Chinese government was pressured to charge the controversial one-child policy due to aging population concerns. A statement from the Chinese Communist Party said couples will now be able to have two children.

Giant 95kg kangaroo walks streets of suburban Brisbane neighbor hood

An intimidating marsupial measuring two meters tall with massive biceps and a ripped left ear was seen walking through a Brisbane suburb. Local residents were stunned by the thuggish-looking kangaroo and have refused to ask him to leave. Nicknamed ‘Dave’ by locals, he has made international headlines when a local woman posted a video of him online after she encountered him on a footpath.
