Where one can find a full list of those stations for each agency?
Do those agencies rely upon the same stations or different?
Are those stations the same every year or different?

Albeit the population of 700.000 people, you will find here in Macao Sar (Special Administrative Region of China, former Portuguese colony) Koreans and Japanese that speak English and Cantonese in their daily communication. They are thousands of families of refugees during the II World War that profit from Portugal neutrality: Macao was not occupied by the Japanese army. These groups have their own associations, cultural gatherings, and festivals.

In both Japanese and Korean, the verbs meaning 'hear/listen' is homophonous with the verb meaning 'be effective/work' as in 'The medicine works' or (having castigated someone) 'That worked'. Because this same situation obtains in two (not closely related) languages, I assume that there must be some semantic linkage between these two semantic notions, and I would therefore expect to see the two notions being represented by the same word in some other languages. Do you know of any other languages where the word for 'hear/listen' also means 'be effective'?
Relevant answer
In the Arabic language the meaning of these words is determined by the context in which they are spoken and not in the lexical or semantic sense, and in some contexts (emotional, Situational , linguistic, cultural) 'hear/listen' meaning 'be effective/work'

Find ways to maximize the design economy of the shinso foundation (Japanese style caisson type pile) on the rock slope through an evaluation of strength properties of the rock before and after plasticity. We investigate the influence of soil properties on the design result by carrying out experiments which give the soil properties before and after plasticity and by doing parametric studies on the soil properties. Experiment using small-scale shinso foundation is performed to verify the validity of result of examinations. Comparison between the experiment and the analytical result reveals the bearing capacity characteristics of the shinso foundation on the slope and gives new insights on the more economical design of the shinso foundation.

Comparison of guidelines for perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis in Head & Neck Surgery.

I found a lot of them on different databases. But I don't found any from China, Japan, India or other country from Asia. Of course language is a limitation. If somebody have any information please tell me.
Relevant answer
Answer
No preoperative antibiotic is needed for minor surgery. For semi major surgery for patients with active habits, due exercise and diet, no need of antibiotic. In post-operative period if sign of aggravation of inflammation occurs, consider anti-inflammatory drugs with antibiotic. This helps body immunity to be activated and there will be non-development of resistance to antibiotics.

Hello, I am working with a two genes sequences of octopus (CO1 and NADH1) and want to generate phylogenetic tree from it. I was looking for some suggestion about how to construct the best tree from it and got it from here
problem is, it is in Japanese and google translate did not help much. Can someone help me find the similar manual for constructing a tree using kakusan? or maybe a better way to do it?
Thank you
Relevant answer
Answer
Kakusan can use different models for different genes or "partitions", but both COI and NADH1 are highly conserved protein coding mitochondrial genes, so they should have very similar evolution within one group of organisms such as cephalopods. If you had one structural RNA gene and one protein-dding gene, the use of different models might make more sense. But you can test each data set with ModelTest or PartitionFinder to double check on this.
More often, for protein-coding genes, it makes more sense to treat first, second and third codon positions differently (partition by codon site) than to treat different genes differently (partition by gene).
DAMBE, MEGA, and dozens of other phylogeny packages can be used to construct trees by NJ, ML and other methods with as many different models as you like. Or you can use web services such as IQ-tree (Maximum Likelihood with any model you like).
All of this is probably a bit of overkill for 2 mitochondrial protein-coding genes. In my experience it is far better to put effort into good data sets than to beat a limited data set to death with more computer power.

Which approach is the more recommended approach in calculate EQ5D values for patients in different country in a normal study (no cost analysis or comparative study between countries)? I want to evaluate treatment effect on PRO of 2 treatments, which occurs in all participating centers.
A) Transform EQ5D response via one general value set (e.g. US population OR European population)
B) Transform each EQ5D response via country-specific value set (e.g. Spanish and Portuguese patients will use the Spanish value set, Japanese patients use the Japanese value set, German patients use the German value set and African patients use the Zimbabwe value set and so on...)
Thanks in advance
Relevant answer
Answer
The answers to the EQ5D survey can be translated into health utility values (HUV). HUVs are the unit of Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALY), which is the unit of measurement used in cost utility analyses. The accuracy of the EQ5D representing HUVs is entirely dependent on the population that the particular version of the survey was validated on. Hopefully that helps.

There has been a growing concern about the significant shortage of the number of young physician-scientists, who can contribute to the development of basic medicine with the objective of patient-oriented medicine.1-3 This fact holds true of Japan as well as US.1,2 As Armstrong et al. have pointed out,3 early exposure as a medical student or a resident to the challenging clinical cases is crucial for the patient-driven scientific inquiry as to the underlying pathophysiology of the as-yet-unrecognized disorders. In Japan, the establishment of the new medical-internship program and the specialist physician system has made increasingly difficult for young doctors to have enough time to realize the importance of patient-based scientific inquiry. Not a few medical schools in Japan introduced the medical scientist training program also referred to as MD-PhD program, while PhD researchers take the place of physician-scientists in the field of basic research.4 Therefore, it seems to be essential to emphasize the value of the collaboration between PhD scientists with the superior technique in the lab and physician-scientists with the clinical point of view.

This project seems very interesting, which is a bit similar to my thesis project but only in the management standpoint. 
My current thesis is about a comparison of management practices between Japanese firms and their units located in European Economic Area and during my first year, I focused my preliminary literature on the Japanese organizational model, defined by Western scholars as a jungle with practices underlying under three social essences such as long run planning career horizon, commitment to lifetime employment and collective responsibility. And from those underlying essences, have emerged a lot practices, subject to western analysis. I am also conducting an article about strategic diplomacy of Japanese organizations, in accordance with the business model.
The main question posed in this project is whether or not these practices can be applied in Europe the same way it is in Japan, without changing what makes their identity. In better meaning, how it will take for a Japanese unit to apply its practices like in Japan when it is facing the EEA first that has its own rules, norms, regulations, and then national business models that also have their own rules, norms and regulations, and in addition to issues related to the business model it came from.
Those issues kept on coming, because it affects the inner structure of Japanese subsidiaries, despite the willingness for local governments to respond to economic needs.
Based on that, my question to you is this: Did you encounter intercultural issues related to practices transfer between both actors (Japanese to British business environments)?
For more informations about my research, i enclosed in attachment more details related to my project. If you are interested on, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi,
The topic you have chosen is quite interesting and yes of late we have seen an increase in the Japanese participation, especially when we look at developing economies like India. One way in which I can relate to your question is the fact that India being a former colony of Britain still maintains the old practice in many domains, the most prominent being railways, law and education.
Going by my current project on High Speed Rail Corridor, what I infer is the rich technology experience that Japan has developed and nurtured over the years and this is what drives Japan forward. In a competitive global environment, inter cultural differences do not have an impact on the economic prospects that the country is to offer. Because the relation is carried on a very professional line and in such circumstances, it is unlikely that the intercultural differences would act as a deterrent against the strategic partnership. I hope I have been able to answer your question

To me, Kaizen philosophy is positive and circular economy is negative, kind of like the yin and yang. Kaizen philosophy attempts to improve production, while circular economy attempts to eradicate waste. The two work symbiotically, such that each presupposes the other.

I am studying the ways that Japanese and American history spoke of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. I read Japanese fairly well, but I'm struggling to find a large number of Japanese authors to talk about the atomic bombs. I wonder if someone in the group would have indications of books, authors and other types of sources that can help me.

Answer
Hi, I recommend a look at 原爆文献大事典 (2004). It meticulously lists works in Japanese related to the atomic bombs, from 1945 to 2002.

I am researching effective design of mobile apps, particularly helping students of Japanese memorize kanji characters. Can anyone recommend some great mobile apps? Or, if you wouldn't characterize any apps as great, can you give me suggestions as to what you would love to see in a mobile app?
Relevant answer
Answer
I currently own an Android Software and studying Japanese so I mostly use japanese Apps in order to find an effective and enjoyable way to memorize Kanji and grammar.
As italian student is difficult to find freindly-user translated grammar books or Apps.
I find that the main problems is the Grafic Interface and subject organization:
Mostly programs and manuals in general lack of a structure which can easily classify the many aspects of language and tend to be confusing. The lack in structure is also a problem that compromise a quick learning. Color theory should be considered in learning.

Metric for dominance: tonnes/year.
Topological:layout/floor plan (intra-organizational)
Geographical:location relative to sea or urban centres (supra-organizational)
Cases-in-point:Tsukiji (Tokyo) & La Nueva Viga (Mexico City): ranked 1st & 2nd in the world, respectively.

Answer
Hi Akira,
Your last exchange of ideas got me thinking...I am curious, how does land-locked Mexico City maintain a large fish market (do not know to what extent it is global) when Tokyo seems to proof through history that dominance is a function of (I am simplifying deliberately in terms of the NEG/PEG debate): proximity to the ocean (for freshness) and fish-consuming communities (culture). Freshness is very much a function of distances and therefore transport cost, amendable to topological analysis; while culture is a function of market sophistication, and therefore collective consciousness, amendable to sociological, anthropological, gastronomic analysis? Would you care to share your experience and thoughts in connection to the Tsukiji market in Tokyo?

I am searching somebody for collaboration who is preferably Japanese or at least speaks the Japanese language well.
I am a PhD student with a research topic about Sony AIBO robot dogs. In last May, I run a questionnaire to get know how AIBO owners feelings about their robots nowadays and their opinions about the existing/future software for AIBO. I got quite many responses, but I can't reach AIBO forums in Japan because I don't speak their language and they don't speak too much English. I wonder if somebody would be interested to translate my questionnaire to Japanese, collect answers from Japanese AIBO forums on the internet and translate the answers back to English. It would be really nice to compare the opinions and expectations of long-term AIBO owners of Europe/USA <-> Japan. One or more papers can be written together if there is interest for that.
Please send me a message if you are interested in.

Although I can speak and read Japanese, your request takes a bit of work. 
One suggestion is to team up with your Japanese Department and see whether there is someone interesting in helping you there.

While kaizen has been a pervasive phenomenon that guides the organization’s approach to daily tasks and existence over the longer-term, the oft-reported lackluster performance of the Japanese economy has inevitably resulted in questioning the real effectiveness of kaizen as the underpinning, custodial philosophy of Japanese industry.
Relevant answer
Answer
In agree with dear Nageswara thar any era Kaizen will always be relevant
The Sino-Japanese word "kaizen" simply means "good change", with no inherent meaning of either "continuous" or "philosophy" in Japanese dictionaries or in everyday use.
Many well known Japanese companies such as Toyota and Canon use Kaizen, with a group approach which includes everyone from CEOs to janitors on the factory floor. This group approach has been adopted successfully in other regions of the world as well, but Japanese workers have refined it to an art form. It is Kaizen mindset and process-oriented thinking, as opposed to the result-oriented thinking favored by most Western firms, that has enabled Japanese industry to attain its competitive edge in the world markets.
It has been suggested that Kaizen works particularly well because Japan is a collective culture, and Kaizen relies on collective values. People in more individualistic cultures may struggle with some of the basic principles of Kaizen.
Kaizen also suggests that everything constantly has room for refinement and improvement. Under the Kaizen philosophy, perfection can never be truly reached, and this value is contrary to the beliefs of many Westerners. The Western philosophy places a high value on the achievement and maintenance of perfection.
