Conference in San Francisco 10 days later
At the end of this month, I will go to San Francisco for a conference for a week. I will be taking three students with me, who go to a conference out of Japan for the first time. Therefore, I need to take care of them. I check all the figures and manuscripts. I hope that they will enjoy this opportunity.

Preparing for the meeting on Friday
For my scientific project, I am holding general meetings three times a year. The next meeting will be scheduled on this Friday in my institute; I started preparing for this. I checked the attendees. There will be nearly 30 people. Four officials are coming from a government organization. To all of them, I have sent the schedules. I have also sent the report I prepared last week. I planned the arrangement of the room, and I rechecked the party after the meeting. I hope that everything goes well on Friday.

Submitting a report and making an instrument
Yesterday, after the seminar, I received a response from the governmental office telling me that they are not allowed to download files from free storage sites. It is reasonable, so I made the file separated into three and sent them by e-mail first. An officer said the report was fine, so I print it out, signed on it, and sent it by mail. A researcher came from Shimadzu. We worked on our instrument under development.

Seminar and meeting in Tokyo
I continued copying and pasting. At 2 AM, a mail arrived from a Mexican friend working for a French university; he invited me to the defense of his Chinese PhD student, and the date of defense was decided on September 18th. So I will visit France in September. I finished the report at 4 AM. I uploaded the file to a free storage site and sent the url to the governmental institute asking to download it to check. I came back home, took Maya-san for a morning walk, and left for Tokyo for a seminar of a graphic software I am using. I slept in the train. I got off … Continue reading

Stay in the office for a report
I had two classes to teach today. I like the classes and students seem to understand me. I then started preparing a report of my project in the academic year 2012 (meaning from April 2012 to March 2013). It was not too difficult because I just copy and paste and adjust lines and change fonts and copy and paste and adjust pictures, and so on. I came back to the apartment at 7 PM for dinner and Mariya’s bathing. Then I took a nap. I came back to my office and am copying and pasting and adjusting.

Meeting at Tokyo University of Science at Kagurazaka
I went to Tokyo University of Science at Kagurazaka for two meetings, an awards ceremony, a lecture, and a party of a scientific society I am joining. I went up to the 17th floor. I am an official of the society. I had recommended a professor for the society prize, which he received. So I went to see him awarded and giving a lecture. After his lecture, there was a small party. I congratulated him on his award. He was happy. After coming back to Kofu, I saw booths of wineries in front of the station. Many people were enjoying wines and foods. Tasting would have been fun if I … Continue reading

Working with Shimadzu and Panasonic
From yesterday, I have been working with Shimadzu and Panasonic researchers in my lab. Pretty tiring because I have little time to rest. Shimadzu researchers left this evening, but Panasonic researchers stay until tomorrow. Tomorrow, a professor from Keio University arrives to carry out another experiments. I was pretty exhausted when I arrived home. Katya made a lot of spaghetti, and I finished it all.

Blog restarted: Business trip to Tokyo and Mariya six months old
I have been happy but sleepy with Mariya. These days, I got used to the situation, so I restart my blog. This morning, I had a beef-bowl breakfast at Yoshinoya near Kofu Station; the price of a bowl was lowered to 280 yen because of the increase in beef imported from USA after the BSE issue. Taste was good. Then I took a train first to a company in Kanda, Tokyo, to discuss a computer simulation of the results of my project. It seems that we will be able to write a good joint paper. The company is now improving their own simulation program using our data. They are planning … Continue reading

Presentation finished, successfully!
I stayed up all night in my office, preparing for the presentation in Tokyo scheduled today. 20-min presentation and 10-min Q&A is not long at all, but it should be counted far more seriously than the report I submitted the other day. At 7 AM, I went back home for a walk with Maya-san, while Katya was tired and sleeping with Mariya. Then I went back to the office. I made 25 copies of my PowerPoint presentation file, and left the institute at 11 AM for Kofu station. The presentation was scheduled at 3:40 PM, so leaving that early was not necessary, but I did not want to get to … Continue reading

Preparing all day for the presentation
Happy days in Izu are over. Tomorrow, there will be a presentation of my scientific project that started in October last year. This presentation is a very big one; if the judges did not like my results, the 3.5-year project could be ended next March. I went back home for dinner, and I returned to my office. I will be preparing for the presentation in my office tonight.
