In the same year, upon receiving a request for production of a work to be set up at AP Communications Building at Rockefeller Center in New York, we will complete a large sculpture symbolically expressing "freedom of press". This work will be a precedent and a number of public space projects around the world will be highly evaluated. It is a sculpture work reflecting the belief that Isamu Noguchi's sculpture art can play an important social role. Mr. Mikishi living in New York and being a blogger seems to have been to the Noguchi Museum for the first time in a long time since the access from Manhattan became convenient.

What is important is how can Yuushu City earn money?

Yubari railway line is the railway line that Yubari railway (Hokkaido charcoal steamship ship) was operating. Since I was born and raised in a tenement building near the railway, the wagons that carry the tenement houses around this station and coal are always reflected in the pleasant landscape that I was playing with my friends including coal picking (^ ^) I live in New York It is clearly written that the guy says "To avoid the second collapse" as a subtitle by "NHK interview team" "10 years since the collapse of Yubari city", but the solution to the problem is also an idea for improving the situation No reference information is written at all in this article. why? why? So how do you avoid the second collapse? Japanese media coverage, this pattern too much. "I feel that the direction of using labor is wrong". I feel the same way. Libert 's' How to play' is more than ten times more constructive and helpful. This article is also a PR article of "Shocking Nippon's Impact" (Kodansha Contemporary Newspaper) as a PR article, but as Mr. Ribei points out, Japan's media thinks that there are too many patterns that do not show solutions or remedial measures I will. Compared to overseas media, I feel the difference in the reporting attitude. Yubari city is also trying to make use of existing resources, but it is not a creative-oriented movement to create new value like New York. Would you like to launch the Yubari region revitalization project model, such as "Digital City Yubari" and "Art City Yubari" (^^) Then it is the same as listening to an excuse for a child not doing "summer vacation homework" (How to play New York) "Can not do" to "Can"!

Think about 'cultural theft' in the global era.

Curry Cross, who is aiming at IT entrepreneurs while being a first-rate model (model alone, with an annual income of over 500 million yen), was featured in the March issue of the fashion magazine Vogue and was filmed at Ise Shima in Japan When I released a Japanese style artistic photo, I took up a lot of topics in various ways. Somehow exclusively from ethnic groups and racial people other than Japanese, this photo is "severe criticism of Japanese, discrimination against Japanese, foolish, if you can use Japanese models if it is like a black hair wig" or so A complaint erupted. "Actually, in the United States, it became a little social problem news," said Liberty ♪ living in New York City. "Cultural appropriation" is an action that encourages use as a trend without permission, without understanding its meaning, tradition with cultural and religious implications. (CELESY, June 1, 2016) The ripple about "theft of culture" has been developed not only in the fashion world but also in Hollywood and the arts field, apologies and discontinuation of events, and it has sharpened. In Japan, the cultural identity was thin and it was not sensitive to the concept of "cultural theft". However, there have long existed minority culture such as the Ainu ryuu and the Ryukyu kingdom in Japan. In future Japan, the number of immigrants and foreign tourists will also increase. I think that it is time to think about cultural diversity and different cultures, including education and media.
