PART B_2

Going into Space
Koichi Wakata was five years old when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. Since then, he had dreamed of becoming an astronaut. It was twenty-seven years later when he made his first trip into space. “Every time I go into space, I discover my love for the earth,” Koichi said. He describes the planet Earth as an “oasis” in space. According to Koichi, one can clearly see the oceans, clouds, mountains, and rivers from space. He can even identify his home country Japan by its shape alone.

Astronauts from different countries join one another in meals every day, giving them the chance to try various space foods. However, eating food without gravity is both difficult and can be a problem. For example, you must use a straw when eating soup. You also cannot take a bath in space: you can only wipe your body with a cloth. Each has his/her own room, but they are very small. Overall, life in space is still comfortable because astronauts can do many scientific experiments.

PART B_2

Into Unknown Territory
Habu Yoshiharu is known as the “King of Board,” and he is one of the greatest shogi players in history. He first learned how to play the board game in his first year of elementary school. During his first tries, he had been losing all the games but began to win in a month or so. He also went to a shogi dojo in Hachioji and participated in a children’s tournament. As a child, he was interested in the shogi pieces since each piece has a different move. The game is also simple: you either win or lose. This makes him feel a sense of responsibility in the game.

Although skills are a big factor in the game, luck is also important since there is not enough time to think deeply about a player’s next move. For Habu, one must make a decision every time he/she makes a move in the game of shogi. Confidence is not enough because your opponent might make a move you will not expect. So, instead of confidence, a player must think about doing the correct move. The most important thing for Habu in shogi is a player’s decision-making power.

Pretty good! The weather is perfect today so I went out jogging early in the morning.
Is that part of your daily routine?

As long as the weather is good, yes. It keeps me in tip-top shape. What about you?
I do yoga and meditation every morning.

I see. Do you do any physical activities outside by any chance?
Sadly, no. I prefer to do exercise at home.

Why is that?
I suppose it’s more comfortable for me to exercise in an environment I’m familiar with.

Oh, I understand. By the way, have you had breakfast already?
Not yet, but I’m actually planning to grab a bite. Care to join me?

Sure, it would be my pleasure.

The Miller, His Son, and the Ass
One day, a long time ago, an old Miller and his Son were on their way to market with an Ass which they hoped to sell. They drove him very slowly, for they thought they would have a better chance to sell him if they kept him in good condition. As they walked along the highway, some travelers laughed loudly at them.

“What foolishness,” cried one, “to walk when they might as well ride. The most stupid of the three is not the one you would expect it to be.” The Miller did not like to be laughed at, so he told his son to climb up and ride. They had gone a little farther along the road when three merchants passed by. “Oho, what have we here?” they cried. “Respect old age, young man! Get down, and let the old man ride.”

Though the Miller was not tired, he made the boy get down and climbed up himself to ride, just to please the Merchants. At the next turnstile, they overtook some women carrying market baskets loaded with vegetables and other things to sell. “Look at the old fool,” exclaimed one of them. “Perched on the Ass, while that poor boy has to walk.” The Miller felt a bit vexed, but to be agreeable, he told the Boy to climb up behind him.

They had no sooner started out again than a loud shout went up from another company of people on the road. “What a crime,” cried one, “to load up a poor dumb beast like that! They look more able to carry the poor creature, than he to carry them.” “They must be on their way to sell the poor thing’s hide,” said another.

The Miller and his Son quickly scrambled down, and a short time later, the marketplace was thrown into an uproar as the two came along carrying the Donkey slung from a pole. A great crowd of people ran out to get a closer look at the strange sight.

The Ass did not dislike being carried, but so many people came up to point at him and laugh and shout, that he began to kick and bray, and then, just as they were crossing a bridge, the ropes that held him gave way, and down he tumbled into the river.

The poor Miller now set out sadly for home. By trying to please everybody, he had pleased nobody, and lost his Ass besides.

If you try to please all, you please none.
