From the early morning, I have been carrying out experiments with a student of mine and a researcher from Panasonic. By our side, a professor from Keio University was doing his with my colleague. When I had time, I was writing a paper, too. Students came to me once in a while to ask me how to submit their abstracts and register themselves with the conference (actually, the registration procedure was very complicated). I got so tired after these three day. When I came home, Katya started talking with her parents on Skype. Mariya was on a new foam-plastic matress we bought at Babies “R” Us in Odaiba. Katya … Continue reading
I received an e-mail from a person in the governmental office in charge of my project, telling me that they had received my answer sheet. It will be passed to the judges on the 27th. Another e-mail arrived from a friend of mine in France with a paper attached; a Chinese student of his lab did the job in our institute while he was here and wrote the paper. I will check it soon. In the afternoon, I taught a class. Another e-mails and another jobs not accomplished last week. Typical Monday.
I finished writing a paper on the subject I talked in Hawaii. The talk was successful then and there were many good questions. So, I revised the paper with the ideas given by the questioners. I passed paper to the coworkers. After their comments, the paper will be submitted.
I want to submit a paper before going to a conference in Hawaii, so I am working on it. The paper is being prepared with a collaboration of an American professor. Working with him makes me recognize that I am not a native English speaker, anyway. I can make my researches understood in English accurately enough, but it is more like a manual (and it is important, too). His English is vivid. Probably, this would not be learned any more. Anyway, after an evening nap, I will go to my office and work overnight.
Today is October 2, but was still humid and hot. The highest temperature reached 28 degree C. In the university, air conditioners were not allowed to be used any more in order to save the energy, so I fully opened up the windows. I sweated in the office while working in front of the computer. I finished up another paper today. I am working hard before going to Hawaii.
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.
It is Saturday today. There were the entrance exams to graduate school. I was there to help candidates during the paper exams, interview them, as well as to mark the papers. Everything ended at three o’clock. I walked home. Katya had opened the box of cherries. They were of a high quality. Then I went back for a work. In the evening we had a light rain. This made the temperature low, which made a pleasant evening.
I was working all day today, trying to finish two papers. One was finished, the other, I am still working on. I will work on the latter tomorrow.
Golden Week starts tomorrow. Before (and after) the vacation, I am always busy. Today, I am writing a paper, trying to finish it till tomorrow’s morning.
A paper, which I think has a very general importance, was rejected by a big journal. The comment was that the subject is too specific. lacking a broad interest. I do not agree. An American coworker in the same institute and I have been working on the paper; we decided to resubmit it to the same journal after the modification, explaining how important the manuscript is to the history of basic science. The professor is now in New Mexico for a conference, so we are communicating by e-mail.
