I maintain Des Liens de Emmanuel Chanel, my links page for a long time. And it got very heavy. I think that my links collection is convenient if it were much lighter. In addition, smart phones are very popular devices. So I feel such heavy page wouldn’t be good since the smart phone users would have severe limitations of the ammount of transferred data. So I moved the old heavy main page to Edition 1.
And for the long history of the links page, it shows very old generation of the net communities. Especially so about the websites about opinions. So I want the renewal of its opinions section, too. So the opnions section is named Opinions & Social Science Season 1
Especially, Edition 1 is very heavy. But on this renewal, I made all those pages on Des Liens de Emmanuel Chanel be mobile friendly by Google’s Page Speed Insights.
We, Japan send Antarctic Research Expedition to Antarctica under Antarctic Treaty. So the treaty and its freeze of the territorial claims over Antarctica are very famous. And in Japan, we take it for natural that such children’s books like these are widely published. But I hear that it’s not in foreign countries including Europe and America. These except the web contents are usually lent in public libraries. So even very poor people have chances to learn it in Japan. (In Japan, illiteral people are very irregular, under our public education.) Continue reading
This topic is not so new but still too many anti-whaling idiots are ignorant of these facts. Kyodo Senpaku’s scientific whaling is out of Australian jurisdiction as it’s proven by these. ( I decorated the text to make it easy to copy-and-paste.)
I created the Japanese page named Links for Countering Anti-Japanese Hate Speech about History Textbooks inside Des Liens de Emmanuel Chanel on 20 January.(the Japanese entry) And I made its English version on 23 March. The page is to refute anti-Japanese propaganda, historical revisionism, and historical denialism: the cause that Japanese history textbooks don’t mention our undesired history.
A significant number of people say that Japanese historical education denies undesired history. They throw that word to us, Japanese people who refute Comfort Women, Nanjing Massacre, the wars of aggression, and so on. But they don’t know anything that Japanese education system teaches actually. And they don’t try to know. So it’s no problem to take such words for hate speech.
On the page, I show how to investigate our history textbooks for primary schools and for middle schools on the page. So it’s very useful if you seriously want to know what Japanese textbooks say.

I don’t know why but I feel this Linux Mint 17.2 PC unstable. So I tried the clean installation. I don’t feel so many changes except the fact that I needed to install some software again, though. Maybe, my PC is getting too old…
John Thiel(Facebook / LinkedIn) often posts comments on the Facebook page of Japan Today. I don’t know what he says about the other topics of Japan well. But on its post of the Australian court’s rule against our whaling vessels , facing our refutation of its jurisdiction over Antarctic waters by Yamamoto San, Tricia Wiles, and me, he deleted his comment thread including our replies and reposted the same comment. So he tried to delete his undesired history about our refutation. Continue reading
Dr. Troy Coyle(FB / LinkedIn) is a Sea Shepherd and former Cove Guardian. She got a PhD degree in fishery at University of New South Wales(her doctoral thesis) but now she works for New Zealand Steel. And she often comes to Covie Monitor Project, the Facebook page against eco-terrorism on Taiji. Eco-terrorists including Sea Shepherd, Dolphin Project, and so on harass dolphin fishery of Taiji. So CMP watches those eco-terrorists’ activity and post our public opinions about whaling, dolphin fishery, eco-terrorism, and so on. And she usually face their refutations.
On the post about Project exhibition “The Whalers”, she refers the Australian federal court rule against our Kyodo Sempaku around 17 Nov. 2015.(the article of the Age, an Australian newspaper.) But the court have no jurisdiction over Antarctic waters. Continue reading
Mike Rhodes(FB account) is an American living in Tanabe City, Wakayama, Japan. He is a private English teacher and he attends some extraordinary English classes for Shinjo Middle School as an Assistant Language Teacher. (He testified that he teaches English in a public middle school there. But those English-speaking teachers don’t teach English or so in ordinary classes of public schools in our education system. English-speakers can become ALTs without knowing English grammar well.) He started the argument with this. (It’s the comments on the post of Prime Minister’s Office of Japan FB page. So the emphases are put by me.) Continue reading
I uploaded the photography of Minamata Disease part of the society textbooks for 5th grade and the Nanjing Incident part of ones for 6th grade to ftp://ftp.emmanuelc.dix.asia/inspected_textbooks/2010/ Those textbooks are inspected in 2010 by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology. The inspection of primary school textbooks this time is done in 2014, last year. It would be good to transcript those textbooks with making the album here but now I put the raw data on FTP. And I’ve deleted their EXIF information.
Those pictures mean that primary schools under Japanese public education law teach Minamata Disease and Nanjing Massacre. We, Japanese people are not against teaching the former. And we argue much about the latter. Anyway, all of us learn them. If we blindly believe our textbooks or if we take the inspection for absolute, few on the net would refute Nanjing Massacre.

I deleted that photos from my anonymous FTP site on 26 Nov 2015. I found it problematic on copy rights…
