Sequels in July 2015

I hear Japan is struck by heatwave. To be honest, it is still a little cold in London.

Nikkei buys Financial Times

After the news revealed, Financial Times (FT) repeatedly reported suggesting the validity of this deal. It seems that FT is eager to ease the readers from the worries about falling off its value.

The Financial Times: Nikkei promises to respect FT’s editorial independence

The Financial Times: FT and Nikkei differences need not cause a clash

The situation resembles that Jeff Bezos bought Washington Post. Independence of editing and expressing is a crucial matter for the media. Writers of FT must be concerned about it. I hope FT will keep, or improve its quality of the articles.

Syriza's agony to the recovery of Greece

The Greek government is suspected to have planed to revive Drachma. Furthermore, it was possibly considered to raid the central bank reserves and hack citizens account. Tsipras is demanded to explain about this covert plan.

As I wrote, it is not surprising that Greek government has wanted to issue Drachma instead of continuous use of Euro. But, it should be problematic if the government tried to take over personal estate illegally. Since many Greek people belong to the public sector, grasping the financial status of each citizen is easier than in other developed countries, I guess.

Knizia board games day

Finally, I got 24 pts on this day. The winner marked amazing 99pts, with winning of Kingdoms, Beowulf, Ra, and Samurai. The final mark was the sum of each score of games calculated by the rank and weight of the game. Therefore, the more games you played, the higher mark you got. The champion played a total of ten games, in which four were victorious. Congratulations!

President Iwata of Nintendo passed away

As far as I know, the successor of Iwata has not been determined. Miyamoto, a legendary game creator, and Takeda, specialized to hardware development, are regarded as the next president. Tatsumi Kimishima, a general manager with experience as a banker, is also involved in the temporal administration.

I am not interested in who will get the seat of the president. My concern is whether I will play Nintendo games with fun in the future.
