My goal in 2017: Temperate

To be honest, I have forgotten the goal of this year. And I have failed to be temperate. Shameful!

Fluctuating Bitcoin

Remembering this article, it seems to be a joke. The price of Bitcoin was increased by a tenth from the beginning of this year. Tne its fragility is much more than in the past.

Theresa May mentioned hard Brexit

May keeps her stance regarding hard Brexit. Her political attitude deserves to be respected, I believe. However, British people seems not to support her. It is unclear where the UK to go in the next year.

Donald Trump, the 45th US President

It is a nightmare for liberal people to have this year with President Trump. I am a little surprised that Trump has survived this year as the leader. Fortunately, the confusion of the US is not so critical as some people predicted.

Overlearning is beneficial

This article is very persuasive for me. I have wondered for several years why patients with rather severe dementia do not cause traffic accident so often. It may be a result of overlearning. They drive a car as a routine so that their impaired cognition do not lower the driving skills as we predicted.

The US and North Korea are approaching the war

The situation is getting worse gradually. The possibility that the US begins a war is not so high, I expect because there is little merit for the US to do so. I truly hope Trump and Kim keep their rationality.

Alitalia's insolvency

Who will possess Alitalia is still uncertain. Several companies are willing to buy the whole or partial rights of administrating this airline company. But the negotiation seems to be tough.

Moon Jae-in will be the president of South Korea

After Moon's administration is born, the relationship between Korea and Japan became worse. It was predicted because Korean politicians often utilize the hatred of citizens against Japan for their vote. But it is a very superficial policy. The prosperity of Korea, as well as Japan, depends on friendship with neighbor nations. I expect Moon will change his policy incrementally.

Grenfell Tower fire accident

It was a terrible accident. On the other hand, this case represents old infrastructure of London city. I am afraid similar cases will occur.
