NYT Summary

Demands for retaliation are growing in India after a deadly attack by armed military in the Kashmir region controlled by India near the border with Pakistan. Pakistan has denied involvement. 
India and Pakistan have fought two wars over Kashmir. Both countries have nuclear weapons. It would be disastrous if the current situation escalated into a full fledged military confrontation.  
Only a durable political solution can bring peace to the Indian side of Kashmir.

Shin Gojira

I watched a Japanese science fiction movie Shin Gojira today. I really enjoy it. I used to watch some Gojira movies when I was a child, but I didn't watch recent Godzilla movies. 
There were lots of interesting episodes in the film, especially political procedure sceans. The monster would represent something that human can't control. 
The story was nice, the picture was also nice. I can understand that some fans have been watching the film many times.

From Australia

I went to Matsue Castle for volunteer guiding. Soon after arriving there, an elderly couple asked me a guide to the castle. They were from Australia. 
The husband asked me many questions. I answered him as much as I could, but I hardly answered for some specific questions. I have to study more about Matsue Castle. 
He really liked Kurosawa movies. That was one of the reasons they came to Japan. We talked about Kurosawa films like Seven Samurai, Kagemusha and Ran. He said he liked hose riding scenes in battles.

It's been raining here since this morning. The temperature is decreasing. The real Autumn is here.
A new typhoon was born in the southern sea. I hope that won't cause disaster this time.

NYT Editorials

I've subscribed to the New York Times Weekly for the sake of improving my English ability since last year. To be honest, I wasn't a serious reader. I rarely read the paper. 
To get more English vocabulary and  knowledge, I'll try to read three editorials in a week. I'll check unfamiliar words in the editorials. And if I have time, I'll make the summary of the editorial. I prepared a notebook for it. 
To continue to do that would be important for me.
