The meteorological agencies that monitor global climate [NASA, Met Office, NOAA, Japanese Meteorological Agency] calculate temperature anomalies according to data from many stations around the globe.
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?
Are there any studies in linguistics about the average information density per character according to language (in the written form)?
Actually, I'm looking for data (rankings, for instance) on the average information density per character (or for 100, 1000, etc. characters) for languages like English, French, Japanese, etc. (in their written, not spoken, form).
Thank you very much.
I am doing a research study looking at Korean-English and Japanese-English bilingual individuals as my participants. I am trying to see if there are large communities of Korean or Japanese Speakers in the San Francisco Bay Area or California (overall) to recruit for my study.
Does anyone know where I could go to search for these communities of Korean and Japanese Speakers?
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'?
I am trying to find this article:
Suzuki K.J. & Saitoh K. 1990. A revised chromosome study of Japanese Odonates (I). Chromosomes of 14 species belonging to nine families. The Science Reports of the Hirosaki University 37: 38-49

I am looking for articles about Tamahagane steel. Both articles about what this steel was used for and how the actual steel itself was made. I have heard translations of "Tamahagane" both as "Jewel Steel" - the finished steel - and "Iron Balls" - which seems to be about how Tamahagane steel is made from small naturally occurring small balls of iron in certain types of sand. The word "Tamahagane then consisting of: "Tama" - meaning round and precious - and "Hagane" - meaning steel.

I am looking for (empirical/theoretical) papers which examine the (L2, L3...) acquisition of agglutinative languages such as Japanese, Korean, Basque or Swahili by native speakers of Turkish (or inverse).
Thank you for your help in this matter!
I just ran across an excellent paper (Iwahashi et al. 2018) entitled
"Visualization of Temperature Distribution around Focal Area and Near Fields of High Intensity Focused Ultrasound Using a 3D Measurement System," in Advanced Biomedical Engineering, and then found out to my surprise that this journal is not indexed by the Web of Science despite it being published by the Japanese Society for Medical and Biological Engineering. It has also been around for several years (since 2012). What would need to happen before they're indexed?

In some languages with prenominal relative clauses, we can have a question wh-word inside the RC, being the main sentence a question:
Sinitic languages: Shei yao mai de shu zui gui?
Who want buy book most expensive
“Books that who wants to buy are most expensive?
Kimiwa darega kaita hono yomimasita ka?
you . who . wrote . book read
"The books that who wrote do you read?"
Nereden geçen otobüse binmeliyiz?
where . goes . bus . we have to take
"The bus that goes where do we have to take?"
Nora doan autobusa hartu behar dugu?
where goes bus . we have to take
"The bus that goes where do we have to take?
Can anybody give another example from another language?
Does anybody know how we can say those sentences in Amharic?
Please, note that the english sentences are not natural, because we can not have does structures in english. The most similar english sentence would be something like an echo question:
We have to take the bus that goes where?
You read books that wrote who?
Thank you all.
Implement Strategic Foresight cross "Culture Zones"
Working with Scenario based strategising, one realises that the diversity in the “Cultural Zones” in a global corporation, can add a risk for a succesfull implementation of the resulting strategic initiatives and challenges the Strategic Management.
In my study of a global Japanese corporation, the differences in culture across regions is identified as a risk factor, that needs to be included in the Strategic Management Process, to secure an effect of the outcome of the Strategizing processes.
Any god references to articles or studies addressing this perspective?
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.

I am deeply appreciated if you would give me some comments and opinions as to how medical education should be improved in terms of the shortage of the number of young physician-scientists.

Our study involves norepinephrine effects on development and having consistent heat to eliminate the potential for interfering factors during growth stages is a must. The quail are being housed in a larger room, and we want to keep 3-4 chicks together, which will require directed heating, especially considering how small the chicks are, At the same time, the heaters should ideally be small, portable, and easy to place above the pens. Thank you for any help or suggestions you may have!
I need the help of the biologists who have been trained or worked in Japan. I would like to participate in the JAUW International Fellowship Program (2018).
According to the terms of the fund, I must find an organization and / or a Japanese researcher ready to take me on an fellowship, and also plan an fellowship budget (the latter seems to be the greatest difficulty).
The duration of the fellowship is 4-6 months, the fund allocates between 500,000 and 1,000,000 yen (10,000 dollars). Since previously I did not submit documents for participation in such programms, I had the following questions:
1) Is it appropriate to talk with a potential Japanese colleague about the payment of a fellowship? What is the practice of taking a trainee in scientific organizations in Japan?
2) what is the approximate cost of living in economy-class housing?
3) is the amount of the Japanese Fund's grant sufficient for travel, accommodation and tuition fees, or will it be necessary to raise additional funds?
I would be grateful for any information.
It would be nice to following up your work. If you have time, could you provide some details? I would love to read about this most exciting work, as I have pursued some research on Japanese honorific myself.
Thanks for citing my work with Helen.
All the best,
We are analyzing the Japanese amberjack or yellowtail viscera oil. The oil is showing very high acid value. Does anybody have experience/ explanation for this unusual result?
This is for a presentation and I need to read this article and cant find it where do you suggest i look
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.

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.
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?

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.
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.
