 「…俳優・高倉健が他界したというニュースが伝えられた<時>、中国政府は「われわれは彼の他界に哀悼を表する」という声明を発表した。
 これを見て「しまった!」と思った。韓国政府はこの日、何らの哀悼の意も表明しなかった。… 中国のこうした対応は、国益をめぐって隣国と争いつつも、場をぶち壊しにはしない、という慎重さの表れと解釈すべきだろう。…」

 アホちゃうの。
 一、友好に舵を切ったという背景、と、二、高倉映画が改革開放の模範を示したことへの衷心からの謝意、が中共にはあったが韓国にはどちらもないじゃん。
 そもそも、韓国に改革開放の模範を示したのは、戦前に植民地朝鮮に関わった無数の日本人だぜ。
 いつになったら、日本に対して衷心からの謝意をキミらは表明するんだい?
 「日本のノーベル賞受賞者はなぜ多い?…日本の受賞者を分析した結果、優秀な高校から優秀な国立大に進学した学業エリートたちで、国内で博士号を取得した人が大半を占めており、幼年期から幅広い分野の本を読んでいたことが分かった…」

 こっちの分析は上出来。
 安倍、冨山の両名、よー分かったかい?
 日本の文系学者達がダメで本件でも彼らを善導してやってないからだけどな。

 それでは、その他の記事の紹介です。

 日本が武器輸出のための政府資金融資制度を検討中だとさ。
 (ロイターのスクープ!(太田))↓

 Japan is considering creating a government-backed financing arm for weapons exports, a move that would accelerate Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's shift away from the country's pacifist past and strengthen Tokyo's regional security ties as China's military power grows.・・・

 <中共の改革開放のかなたにあるものを具体的に指し示した(太田)。↓>
 「・・・中野良子演じる奔放で小生 意気なヒロイン・真由美は日本人女性のそれまでのイメージを一新した。残念ながら78年放映当時は、中野良子さんの美しいヌードシーンはカットされたらし いが、以降「真由美」は山口百恵さんと並んで日本人女性の一つの典型的なイメージとなっており、「日本人女性? すると名前は真由美か?」などといまだに地方のタクシー運転手から尋ねられたりする。・・・
 中国観衆は銀幕上に、(中国のそれまでの政治的映画に出てくる模範的な英雄とは違う)血の通った人間くさいヒーローを求めていた。杜丘はまさに、時代の要求の空白を埋める存在だった。高倉健と中野良子の大胆明快な愛情演技も、謹直な愛情表現しかない国産映画に慣らされた青年観衆たちに、本当の男女の情愛と言うものを感じさせた。この映画の題材自体が、<文化大革命当時の>冤罪の名誉回復を問う当時の時代背景と共鳴していた。映画の舞台は繁華街の新宿あり、北海道の山河あり。戦後の高度経済成長を遂げた東京と、北海道の大自然は、人々に日本に対するイメージを一新させた。…スキャット風(ダーヤラァ)の挿入歌、抒情性と緊張感に富んだ映画音楽、それら要素すべてが中国観衆の耳目を一新させた。・・・
 70年代より以前の男性に対する審美基準は、革命幹部の聖人君子然としたパーフェクトなイメージにあった。80年代に、舶来男性の審美基準が中国に流入してきた。その一つが高倉健である。…ウィンドブレーカーの襟をたて、冷峻(クール)な表情の男。高倉健の出現は中国男性の審美基準をひっくり返した。・・・
 <日本人の人間主義性を体現した存在だった。(太田)↓>
 彼は、常に他人を尊重し、日常の礼節をおろそかにしたことがなく、それは相手の身分によって寸分も変化することはない。…高倉健は実際、大して演技していない。 彼は自分を演じているだけだ。…高倉健は演技しているのではなく、演出の中で生きている。彼は自分の人格の魅力と生活経験を銀幕の上で演じているのだ。… この高倉健に見られる人格的魅力は、張芸謀監督に言わせると『士』の精神だという。日本では、普通の民衆も、メディアも友人も、みな健さん、と彼を呼ぶ。 彼を尊敬し愛し、神のようにあがめる。このような神は一部の映画から生まれ、一日、一年まっすぐに一生を完成させたのだ・・・」

 比較的最近まで親米だった中共の人々が反米になりつつあるとする記事だ。↓

 <1999年のベオグラードの中共大使館の米軍による誤爆が一つの契機になった。↓>
 ・・・Patriotism is considered a core purpose and mission for the government's prospective recruits, but this is a patriotism that somehow just can't get the United States out of its mind: Zhou's moment of epiphany, as he recalled in the People's Liberation Army Daily article, was the U.S. bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade in 1999. Zhou's success lies in his willingness to channel Beijing's id, plainly stating feelings about Washington -- as bully, competitor, and threat -- that Beijing feels but can hardly address in public as the two nations' economies grow increasingly interdependent.
 <依然として富裕層は親米。子供たちの留学先も、自分達の移住希望先も圧倒的に米国。親米と言っても、イデオロギー的にと言うよりは、実利的なもの。↓>
 By contrast, in the elite Chinese circles that Rui once inhabited, vocal supporters of the United States are rather easy to find. Here, too, their view of the United States is directly related to the way they see China; Washington is a beacon of democracy struggling to carry on, while Beijing is an authoritarian regime trying to gain ground. But the elites' view, like their income statements, are not shared by most in a country of about 1.3 billion citizens with a Gini coefficient that one estimate pegs at 0.74, signaling dangerously high levels of wealth inequality.
 Of course, for most wealthy Chinese families, the U.S. is little more than a favorable immigration destination, not an ideological lodestar. ・・・
 <(私に言わせれば、もともと、支那人は反米なんだよ。いずれにせよ、反米にはっきり転じた中共の人々の怒りの矛先は、富裕層だけじゃなく、(子供を米留させている)中共指導層にも向けられつつある、と考えてよさそうだ。(太田))↓>
 Whether the elite motivation for a pro-U.S. slant is ideological or material, it's all the same to those who choose to -- or have to -- stay behind here, and especially for the mass of humanity in this country who can't afford to send their children overseas, place expensive air purifiers in every room, or go organic. For them, hostility towards the "one percent" in China naturally leads to subconscious antagonism towards the United States.・・・

 ドイツが、来月施行される法律で、経営陣の30%以上を女性にすることを企業に義務付ける。↓

 経済的にウクライナがロシアと切っても切れない関係にある以上、ウクライナ政府はプーチンの要求を受け入れるしかない、とのコラムだ。
 (そうは言っても、人間、パンのみで生きるにあらずだからねえ。(太田))↓

 ・・・A political settlement would be far more important for Ukraine in the short to medium term than Western support -- even more important than the lethal aid that Sen. John McCain is demanding, let alone the helmets and body armor that Biden delivered. ・・・

 (一般住民に被害を及ばなくしたいこともあり、)対Isis空爆は著しく効率が悪いとさ。↓

 ・・・while the Air Force personnel who help plan airstrikes against the Islamic State from here will have more firepower to bring to bear, they face an unusual enemy, a hybrid between a conventional army and a terrorist network, that has not proven to be an easy target for American airpower.・・・

 現在のオバマ政権の対Isis作戦は、抜本的転換をしなければ、失敗を運命づけられている、というコラムだ。↓

 The current U.S. strategy to destroy the Islamic State is likely doomed to fail. In fact, it risks doing just the opposite of its intended goal: strengthening the jihadis' appeal in Syria, Iraq, and far beyond, while leaving the door open for the Islamic State to expand into new areas. ・・・
 <最近、シリア政府軍は、Isis以外を狙い撃ちに。↓>
 Since strikes against the Islamic State began, regime forces have gained ground against mainstream rebels on key fronts in Hama province and in Aleppo city・・・
 <だもんだから、米国はアサド政権を助けているとの印象が浸透しつつある。↓>
 The crux of the American dilemma in Syria is thus clear: Degrading jihadi groups requires empowering mainstream Sunni alternatives, but doing so may prove impossible unless Damascus (or its backers in Tehran) can be convinced or compelled to dramatically shift strategy. For now, the regime treats the Western-, Arab-, and Turkish-backed opposition as the main threat to its dominance in Syria and treats the Islamic State as a secondary concern that the United States is already helping to deal with. Iran has done nothing to suggest that it objects to the regime's strategy; instead, it is enabling it. ・・・

 インドのモディ首相の妻・・長年別居状態で現在ムンバイ居住・・を紹介している。↓

 ・・・For a long time, nobody knew for certain the former primary school teacher existed. As it became clear last year that Narendra Modi, the chief minister of the state, might take power at a national level in the world’s biggest democracy, the question of his possible early marriage was raised. Yet mystery endured.
 <妻がいたのがバレたのはつい最近のこと。↓>
 Only when Modi, as required by law, filed nomination papers as the candidate of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party, did any remaining doubt disappear. The prime minister to be filled in her name in the box marked spouse. The match had been arranged when both were very young and did not last long, though they never divorced.
 <彼女に、法律に則り、5人も護衛が付くようになって困惑している。バスに乗ってる彼女を高級車に乗った護衛達が追っかけてくるという傑作な光景が繰り広げられ、また、狭い家なのでプライバシーが冒され、護衛に茶菓子等の世話をやく負担も大変だ、というわけ。(首相は、彼女をニューデリーに呼び寄せる気はなさそうだ。)↓>
 But, after keeping a low profile since Modi won a landslide election in May, Mrs Modi has hit headlines. She has not taken kindly to the government’s decision to provide her with armed bodyguards around the clock, even when she travels in rickety three-wheeler taxis. She has now filed a request under freedom of information legislation to find out why she has been given security cover and has registered a series of concerns.
 “I am surrounded by five security guards all the time. Often my relatives or I have to cook for them, my sister-in-law has to make their beds. This is a bit annoying,” Jashodaben Modi told Reuters news agency by telephone.
 “You see, it gets really chaotic when I have to travel, because I use public transport and the guards are following me in an air-conditioned car.”・・・

 アタチュルクはトルコ人至上主義、エルドアンはイスラム教至上主義の歴史観だとさ。↓

 <エルドアン、イスラム教徒が新大陸を発見し、しかも、そこに既にモスクがあることも発見したと発言。↓>
 Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan recently made the news when he claimed that Muslim seafarers "discovered America" and that when Christopher Columbus arrived in Cuba in 1492 he found a mosque, built there by the natives, who were also Muslim.・・・
 <アタチュルクは、トルコ人が紀元前9世紀に(科学技術・言語を含む)文明を(新大陸を含む)人類にもたらしたと主張。
 As Turkey's leader in the 1930s, Ataturk gained international attention for his own eccentric historical theories. He claimed the Turks had developed a sophisticated sedentary civilization in Central Asia during the 9th century B.C. Like Native Americans, these early Turks held nature sacred and were really good at archery. But they also perfected innovative technologies like metalworking and animal husbandry well before the rest of the world. Some of these Turkic tribes wandered to America, Ataturk's historians said, while others spread the light of science to the still-primitive inhabitants of China, India, the Near East, and Europe. Spurious linguistic evidence was used to substantiate claims that ancient civilizations like the Hittites and Sumerians were actually Turks. Turkish scholars went on to suggest that all human language was originally derived from Turkish. ・・・
 <それは、欧米化(近代化)のための方便としての主張でもあった。↓>
 But besides simply being a tool for national aggrandizement, Ataturk's history was a crucial step toward Westernization. If Turks believed their people invented science, there was no shame in embracing Western technology. And if Turkish was humanity's original language, there was no harm in borrowing a few French words.
 <趣は違えども、エルドアンの(上掲発言を含むこれまでの)主張も同じこと。(但し、進化論は拒否している。)↓>
 Erdogan may put religion at the center of his invented history instead of Turkishness, but that doesn't mean his brand of Islamic chauvinism rejects the "Western" or "Christian" scientific tradition that Ataturk so aggressively embraced.  Instead, Islamists like the president try to crudely appropriate that legacy -- except, of course, evolution -- while constantly boasting about opening new technical schools and colleges. And they are understandably eager to challenge an all-too-common narrative in which things like the Industrial Revolution or the discovery of the New World serve as evidence of the Christian West's unique capacity for curiosity, rationality, and other prerequisites for progress. ・・・

 鬱についての、研究の最先端状況が紹介されている。↓

 ・・・what many researchers seem to agree on is that depression may not be one illness at all. It’s “probably the case that it’s not a single disorder,” said Dr. Hollon. “It’s probably the fever of modern psychiatry -- a lot of different things can cause it.”
And while they’ve made progress, researchers are still trying to find out what all those things are.
