I thought the Oscar was awarded for acting ability, not the amount of money the movie grossed or the 'expensive and highly visible marketing campaign.' Silly me.

When I came to Japan it took a week for a letter to reach my birth country and then another week for a reply. It cost ¥1,000 a minute to phone so that was impractical. Therefore, I find it very convenient now to be able to contact people abroad, although not necessarily 24 hours a day.

When I came to Japan very few small apartments had a bath/shower and the toilets were generally communal. However, there were numerous nearby sentos where you could meet up with friends and go out for a drink afterwards. The only problem was that you could not have a bath/shower in the morning as the sento did not open till lunchtime.

For nearly two years the United States has tried and failed to negotiate a revival of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
I seem to remember that although it was the US that unilaterally reneged on the deal, it refused to lift sanctions before Iran returned to its pre-2018 position. Surely America could have shown good faith by making the first move.
