Palm reading is very popular that it could be said the most popular foretunetelling. Palmistry reads your palm prints, finger and shape of the nail. From these information palmistry predicts peoples’ future. The idea of palm reading came from psychology. In psychology, there is subconscious and that was something unknown. To know more about that, people thought subconscious might come out to our palm or face. That is where psysiognomy and chirognomy started. However, palmistry is still called “fortune” because there are no concrete evidences to show that it is reliable. In Japan, The mother of ginza or The mother of Shinjuku is very famous palm reader. It is your decision to decide whether you believe it or not, but SHOULD NOT forget that there are no scientific or statistic evidences towards palmistry.
The most important part is your forehead. It tells you how big your parents’ love is. If your forehead is small, you have the ability to GIVE love. If your forehead is big, you have an ability to TAKE love. So, for a person with a small forehead, a partner with a big forehead is good because they can make GIVE & TAKE relationships.
There are a lot of elements to judging your personality in your face. However, I think a good face depends on your face balance or whether you are satisfied with your face.
Physiognomy is a really interesting way to think of one’s personality.
I recommend physiognomy fortunetelling on the internet! It’s very easy!
According to this video, critical thinking is the skill to think and assess information in a more comprehensive way. Learning critical thinking also increases our ability to identify & reject false ideas/ ideology. When you improve this ability, memorizing a solution to a problem isn’t necessary. You can give yourself the tools to create your own effective solutions to a multitude of unfamiliar problems.
The video above is well-organized and easy to understand.

A view of the charter bus that hit a pedestrian bridge in the Washington Park Arboretum.
The charter bus which carry the High School girls softball team hit the brick and concrete footbridge .The accident occurred because the driver was using a GPS navigation system that routed the 12-foot bus under the 9-foot bridge . The off-the-shelf navigation unit had settings for car, motorcycle, bus or truck. Although the unit was set for a bus, it chose a route through the Washington Park Arboretum that did not provide enough clearance for the nearly 12-foot-high vehicle.The driver said that he did not see the flashing lights or yellow sign posting the bridge height.
The accident tells us two points.
One is that the GPS should offer the route for larger vehicles base directions on general information. Second is that drivers always are careful to drive and need to obey all the rules of the road at all times.
I watched the video ” The Thin Blue Line ” and feel a treatment of trauma is very important because David Harris’ trauma caused some bad cases. So I introduce the treatment of trauma.
A number of psychotherapy approaches have been designed with the treatment of trauma in mind—EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, Biofeedback, Internet Family Therapy, and Sensorimotor psychoterapy. In those therapies, EMDR is said to be the most effective to PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) ,so I introduce EMDR.
EMDR is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. The therapy is the way how the patient’s gaze is following the fingertip motion of the therapist while the patient is thinking about his traumatic experience. The eye movement stimulates directly his brain and activates the information processing of the brain.So he will calm down in somewhere of the mind in a short time.
If the treatment of trauma like EMDS becomes more common , the number of crimes will decrease.
Do you know why there is ushinohi; The day of U(shi) in Japan?
Hirai Gennai came up with this idea. He was a multi-talented man; horticulturalist, writer, inventor, painter and copy-writer. In other day, a eel seller asked him that “Do you have any strategy to sell hot foods (eel) in hot summer?” . Then, Hirai said to the seller “How about post a paper; TODAY IS THE DAY OF U (shi [=ox]→ unagi)?”. The sign reminded people the common sense of eating “u-foods” to help them beat the heat. And people thought “Let’s eat unagi!”
Indeed, scientific data shows that eel has vitamin B, which effective to overcome hot summer.
So if you like eel, I recommend you to eat eel the day of U! In this year , the date is July 21th.
The movie The Thin Blue Line shows the gun problem of American society. Therefore, I would like to introduce a documentary film, Bowling for Columbine, directed by Michael Moore. This film focuses on the Columbine High School massacre, and then discusses the gun problem in the US. Compared to other advanced countries such as England and Japan, the number of guns in the US is much higher. Why? Also, the number of guns in Canada is very high, but gun criminal is lower than the US. Why? From these questions, Michael Moore tried to research the gun society in the US. I think there are too many of the director’s opinions in this film, but still there are things we should think about. If you are interested in it, check out this film.
The Solar System is a pretty big place, as we saw in our recent walkabout lesson, “Walking the Solar System.”

The UK and Japan each have a particular tea culture.
In the UK….
Once filled, holding a handled teacup correctly ensures grace while avoiding spilling hot tea. One’s fingers are placed to the front and back of the handle with the pinkie finger tilted slightly up for balance. It is rude to loop fingers through the handle or to hold the body of the cup with the palm of the hand. Tea should always be sipped with elegance to show good manners.Practicing at home before attending a public party might be a wise choice when one is unfamiliar with having afternoon tea.
You sit in the seiza position if everyone else does, although you may be told you can sit in a more relaxed position. The tea bowl is handed to you with its most beautiful side facing you. Pick it up and briefly admire this front face of the bowl and then rotate it 180 degrees in two turns of 90 degrees each so that the front now faces the tea server before you drink. Drink the tea slowly in three sips with a short pause between each one to savor the taste. After drinking, you should say “Kekko na o-temae,”(means it was delicious, you are a good cook. ) then wipe the place on the rim that you drank from with your index and middle fingers, and then wipe them on a folded handkerchief-like cloth you prepared in advance.
Did you know this manner?
Would you like to hold a tea party in our class?
Yesterday there was the final match of UEFA Champions League 2010-11. It was FC Barcelona VS Manchester United. The game ended up with 3-1 and FC Barcelona became the champion.
Manchester United belongs in Premier League (England), which is one of the most popular soccer league in the world. I think most of you have heard or know about Premier League. It is said that over 1 billion people watch premier league in the world. FA Premier League was established in 1992 and Premier League became a big sports business. They earn money from broadcast right, tickets, shop gifts, sponsors and player’s transfer fee. Especially broadcast right take over 40% of the revenue. The biggest difference about managing system between Premier League and J LEAGUE is that, in premier league each club has their own right to conclude a contract with sponsor and broadcast right. As a result, Premier League earned over 200 billion yen just by the broadcast right in 2008-09. J LEAGUE could only earn 5 billion yen by broadcast right. It’s the total amount from 3 companies for 5 years. In J LEAGUE, the company J LEAGUE has the broadcast right and right to decide the sponsors. So, each club gets the same revenue for broadcast right and from the sponsors. J LEAGUE took this system to prevent clubs from being finacial woes.
Do you think J LEAGUE will be successful like Premier League if they take that system?
