With the start of the “Fifteen-Year War” against China by the outbreak of the Manchurian Incident on September 18, 1931, the press reports of the period came to be focussed on military operations in mainland China. The nation-wide hurly-burly in wartime, brought about by dramatic changes of the social situation, prepared a way to the establishment of war footing. In this atmosphere “Sensou Bidan” or “amazing stories of self-sacrificing warriors” were fabricated to “applaud their valiance.” Was it the State Power that forced the press to invent such tales? Or was it the press which prepared the path to this propagation? In order to see that the state power and the press went hand in hand in each stage of the war, I will take up “Nikudan Sanyushi” ( “In Praise of the Three Suicide-Bombing Heroes”) which marked the summit of the campaign.

Macau overtook Las Vegas in sales of casinos in 2006. Up to the present day, many observers have attributed the remarkable success of the city to its open-door policy to capital investment from abroad. They assert that the revitalization and institutionalization of casino facilities effected by accepting foreign capital is the most important factor that has directly led to the success of Macau casino. By critically examining their views, this paper will concentrate on the structural changes of the Macau industry brought about by opening its doors to the outside world, and consider other factors that account for Macau' success.

“Ramen” is now different from Chinese noodles originated in mainland China and develop itself into a Japanese food with diversity. On the other hand, back in 1980s, Japanese Ramen had little diversity – basically on the premise of Chinese elaboration - than that of today. Then 1990s showed a gradual change on it when a concept of “Wa” (=Japanese spirit of harmony) was brought into Ramen with more recreational value of food and in that process, it became something emphasizes “Japanese tradition” instead of Chinese elaboration.Here we take a look at this “Ramen transition” in Japan from a viewpoint of both “Chuka” (=Chinese) and “Wa”images with time series analysis.

Why do a definite number of starting young nurses retire soon after finding new posts? This paper tries to find out the reasons by focusing on psychological processes by which they leave in less than a year after they are employed. Analysis of documents concerned reveals: they find their working environments different from what they have expected them to be; skills they have acquired at nursing schools/colleges prove insufficient for their expected jobs; they find it difficult to get along well with senior members; their mind and body do not fit in well; they lose interest in work of nursing itself. These reasons account for the difficulty of securing sufficient numbers of nurses, while they are common to other young people of the same generation working in other fields.

In many places of Canton, China, barbecued pork, Char sui, is greatly favored, and is loved much more deeply than Siu mei, that baked pork, goose, or duck which has been popular and prevalent in Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Macao and other cities of Canton. In Japan, Cha shu, also barbecued pork that came from China, is a side dish like boiled or grilled pork and yet is now much different from the Chinese original. By surveying Chinese cuisine books published in Japan, this study examines how the original pork cooking has been rearranged to meet the needs of Japanese palate.

On March 11, 2011, a big earthquake (today named the Great East Japan Earthquake) hit north-east Japan. Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station suffered from the disaster, with part of its main buildings destroyed. The other power stations throughout the country stopped work one after another, and have been out of operation up to now (August, 2014). Taking into account increasing costs of fossil fuel, and worsening air pollution with emission of more carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas, restart of nuclear power generation will be desired. In view of the fact that about 60% of the power plants are located on the Pacific coast, there would be a lot of power shortages if a big earthquake directly hit the Tokyo area. In order to prevent shortages, it may be necessary that plants situated on the Japan Sea side should resume operation as soon as safety has been reconfirmed. In this article I will consider how unevenly nuclear power stations are distributed and dispersed, and what problems this irregular location poses to us, by making simulations of what effects an earthquake in the Tokyo area will have on nuclear plants in the TEPCO area.

Les Misérables, written by Victor Hugo, a writer who was also a republican politician, has many adaptations like musical shows, literature for children, cartoons and animations. Considering the fact that quite a small number of studies have been made to make clear the connections between the original work and its adapted versions, this article focuses on the various adapted counterparts of Les Misérables, especially in the field of literature for children and musical shows. And then to understand characteristic features of adapted counterparts of Les Misérables, comparison will be made with some equivalent works of The Happy Prince of Oscar Wilde and Anne of Green Gable of Lucy Montgomery.

In many cases, what a private person or persons, a group or groups, whether known or not, express on the computer network can be defamating others or regarded as defamation. The Internet is a useful tool for expressing ourselves. However, the ability to express ideas anytime, anywhere on the Internet creates a risk of defamation by others, and such defamating and illegal acts could easily be expanded and reproduced by copying them. The resulting amount of damage caused can easily become much greater than before the use of the Internet was common in society. By analyzing decisions of courts of justice on defamation on the computer network, this article examines the responsibility of those who express themselves on the Internet and of the Internet service providers respectively. It also examines the significance of the Japanese Act on the Limitation of Liability for Damages of Specified Telecommunications Service Providers and the Right to Demand Disclosure of Identification Information of the Senders.

In this essay the author will consider an aspect of the theory of language in Ernst Cassirer’s philosophy of symbols. In Chap.6, Part 2, Vol. 3 of his Philosophy of Symbolic Forms, he takes up the pathology of symbolic consciousness in discussing the Phenomenology of Knowledge. He examines Kurt Goldstein’s notion of “impairment of categorical attitude”. Goldstein is persuaded that an analysis of symptoms characteristic of amnesic aphasia will finally prove quite important to inquire into the way humans set themselves up against the world. Cassirer regards the same pathological cases as pathways by following which we can discover the process in which human mind acquires its ability to make the symbolic form of language and develops its cognitive powers. How Cassirer incorporates Goldstein’s observations into his own system of philosophy? This is what we are concerned with in this thesis.

This paper focuses on color descriptions in The Lord of the Rings. This fantasy fiction is a story of dangerous journey in which Frodo and Sam endeavor to throw away the evil ring into the crater of the mountain. All the time, they fight against enemies under the control of the Dark Lord Sauron. The battles, for Frodo and Sam, include both internal and external conflicts. Tolkien experienced World War I and II, therefore, some of which are reflected in many battles of the story. He tried to picture the tragic wars with the symbolical use of colors and to clarify what evil is.

Recently Chinese government vessels, maritime law enforcement agencies' boats and vessels enteredJapanese exclusive economic zone (EEZ).They entered not only the unsettled EEZ between China and Japan, but also Japanese EEZ and territorial waters.To be sure, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea has allowed foreign government vessels to conduct marine scientific researches.However, Chinese government vessels often make marine scientific researches without notice, and enter Japanese EEZ with no information given in advance.Unfortunately, under the present system of international laws, Japan can't regulate and stop these scientific researches so long as researches which Chinese government vessels make or facilities that they construct do not violate Japanese sovereignty or pollute marine environment.In this situation Japan should think of means and measures of making navigation regulations and giving permission of marine scientific researches to preserve marine environment, such as Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), Protection of Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas (PSSA).MPAs and PSSA are regulations admitted by International Maritime Organization.

The purpose of this study is to clarify the characteristics of “vicarious experiences” that enhance the self-efficacy of nursing students in practice of adult nursing. A questionnaire survey was conducted on 69 students who completed the practice of adult nursing at Faculty of Nursing, A University. As a result, four factors were extracted from the "vicarious experiences". They are 1 “relationship with respected patients", 2 “development of nursing by other students", 3 "education of patients toward reorganization of life" and 4 "nursing practice by certified nurses". It is found that the first three factors are directly related to self-efficacy, while the last factor, which nursing students rarely experience on their behalf, is also intimately related to self-efficacy, but in a different way.

The Saitama Prefectural Academic Ability Survey has been conducted since 2015. It is a test that allows comparisons over time in a survey using IRT. Even if the Saitama Prefectural Academic Ability Survey is conducted, the results of the National Assessment of Academic Ability have not been improved. Asking questions similar to the National Assessment of Academic Ability Survey would not improve the results.This paper examines the problems of the Saitama Prefectural Scholastic Ability Survey, focusing on elementary school Japanese.

No legislative measures have been taken to help patients and families suffering from malignant and serious diseases for three main reasons:(1) The Japanese government was reluctant to pass laws from such legislative measures.(2) Patient groups were reluctant to have such laws due to apprehension about their disadvantages.(3) Although the Democratic Party of Japan worked to pass such laws, the political climate under the Koizumi cabinet did not allow politicians to deliberate on such bills, due to many political problems.

Department of Law and Public Policy Faculty of Contemporary Social Studies,Osaka International UniversityThere have been a variety of theories and court cases on the issue of freedom of expression. This paper tries to analyze the concept of freedom of expression in terms of the impacts of new media such as the Internet have on society. The concept of freedom of expression in the traditional media and the concept of freedom of expression in the new media are not the same thing. It has to be admitted that freedom of expression has not been sufficiently protected under the current situation in the new media represented by the Internet. This is due to the fact that circumstances surrounding the new media have changed greatly.

This article surveys the concept of framing in political consciousness research, and examines its logical implications and theoretical validity as a leading principle of researches. The psychological principles which determine the perception of decision-making problems and the evaluation of probable results which come out of the decisions will bring about remarkable shifts of preference when the same issues are framed in different manners. And this new shift will be easily anticipated and predicted so far as a paradigm change of framing is concerned. In consequence of the consideration, a new framework will be presented as a guiding principle of researches.

The Georgian conflictoccurred in 2008, and on that occasion Russiamade military campaigns in order to protect its own national interests. Also Russia announced its “Initiative in Foreign Policy”before the conflict started and “Five Principles of Foreign Policy” after it ended. In accordance with these strategic measures, recently Russia adopted a strong policy towards the United States and Western countries. In this thesis, the present Russian “Initiative in Foreign Policy” and “Five Principles of Foreign Policy” are closely examined in order to make clear why Russia has taken strong oppositions to the US and Western countries. Through this analysis the author will consider the background against which the Georgian conflict took place and what problems the conflict has put on Russia in terms of its security.

This study explores what are the problems of “Religious Pluralism” of John Hick (1922-2012). First by representing the intellectual situations in which the idea of “Religious Pluralism” was presented to the theological world, and then by surveying the arguments about the “three categories” which define what Christianity as a religion considers itself to be, the author examines theoretical difficulties in Hick’s doctrine about “Religious Pluralism” in connection with the Christian idea of salvation.

George MacDonald (1824-1905), Scottish author, published his first three short fantasy works for children in 1864. The Shadows is one of them. The shadow represents a human soul. On his deathbed, Ralph, the main character, sees a vision, and he is chosen as the King of the fairyland by the Shadows, then he is carried, on the shoulders of Shadows, to the fairyland or the border of the afterworld. Ralph sees a group of mysterious Shadows there. Although The Shadows consists of very complicated symbolical scenes, images, and words, my close analysis of the workings of Shadows and the visions of Ralph gives the following conclusion: The Shadows is a declaration of MacDonald's idea of salvation(Universalism), because all Shadows try to lead not only Ralph but also all people to salvation in the story.
