Kawasaki and Doughnuts

I went to Muza Kawasaki in Kawasaki for a scientific meeting. The meeting started at 2 PM and ended at 6 PM. From Kawasaki, I took trains to Shinjuku station, where I took an express train to Kofu. At Shinjuku station, I bought doughnuts for Katya. The price was 990 yen for four, so they should be good. As my presentation went well, I took a can of beer on the train and got relaxed. On the way back home, Katya and Maya-san came to see me. Then, I realized that I left my doughnuts in the train! I called to the lost-and-found.  They found them. I will go to Kofu … Continue reading

Project meeting held in Tokyo

I woke up at 5 AM and went to my office to prepare the slides of my presentation today for a  project meeting scheduled this afternoon in Tokyo with most of the collaborating researchers of several schools and companies. I am the leader, so I have to talk nicely. I finished the slides at 7:30 AM, and made 30 prints. I went back to my apartment, took a shower, shaved myself, and put skin cream and cologne, which is unusual (shaving, especially), to fire up myself. Katya left home for her teaching job first, and I left next for the station. Maya-san kept the apartment. I took a train leaving … Continue reading

Document sent

Today is the day for sending preliminary results obtained in my scientific project, which started in October last year. I was working on it until 9:30 PM, then I sent it by e-mail. The document will be checked by the consultant of the project, after which I will revise and resubmit it by September 27. The interview is scheduled to be held at the end of November in front of 20 judges. Then, it will be decided whether the project continues. It is not easy. I will go to bed early; I need to wake up early to prepare the presentation tomorrow in Tokyo.

First day after the summer vacation: Aquarium renewal

In the morning of the first day after the summer vacation, we had presentations of four Ph. D candidates scheduled to be graduated next spring. There were much to say to them, but totally, they were OK. In the evening after coming back home, Katya and I worked together to reset the aquarium. We cleaned up the tank. We are still keeping the fish separately outside of the tank. We will put them back in tomorrow.

Chinese student’s presentation

In the morning, the Chinese student working with me presented his results in front of teachers and students. He did a very good presentation. He is from the mainland China, but received his master’s in France. Then he worked for two years in the US, and now is back in France again for his Ph. D. Today, I received all his data. Probably, adding some more data, we can write a paper.
