For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve.

At least two of the guys who do Mutantfrog (the website, not the Twitter account) are living in Japan now.

We need translators! If you're a J-E specialist who'd like an in-house position in Tokyo, or if you know someone who fits the bill, here's the link you need: http://www.nippon.com/en/hiring/

Thanks to +Stephen Obrochta for taking on this translation despite all the other stuff on his plate these days!
 
"It is clear that the iPhone now makes up the bulk of NTT Docomo’s sales; Android makers should steel themselves for a tough domestic market this winter. Over the long term, though, these effects will be minimal. It is even possible that the availability of a Docomo iPhone may actually help Android to thrive in Japan."

And while I'm at it, surely the author meant that Japan is Apple's most important foreign market.

I spent a few hours today translating this thing and posting it on our site so it would be up before the Academy Award winners get announced. This is an interesting couple, but I have to say I'm glad I don't live the artist's life. 
 
The Shinoharas, a Japanese couple pursuing art careers in New York since the 1970s, are the subject of Cutie and the Boxer, a documentary nominated for a 2014 Academy Award. We spoke to them about their art and lives during their recent visit to Tokyo, and we'll be following the Oscars today to see if one of those statuettes goes to Zachary Heinzerling for his film.

Hi there,

My company is looking to hire a translator. If you're a J-E specialist who'd like an in-house position in Tokyo, or if you know someone who fits the bill, here's the link you need: http://www.nippon.com/en/hiring/

Café au lait from on high. This guy needs a ladder to reach the 2.5 meter pouring height.

This guy's views on China did not make him many friends among right-leaning Japanese. 
 
We talk with Niwa Uichirō, Japan’s first ambassador to China from the private sector, about China’s economy and the deterioration of Japan-China relations over the Senkaku Islands. Niwa, who returned to Japan in December 2012, calls for the leaders of both countries to meet soon and put a freeze on the Senkaku issue.
