Revue de Presse / Press Review (2010/07/17)

I had a busy week (an appointment with the optometrist for another lengthy exam—which left me almost blind the rest of the evening—and the fitting of my new glasses, a family supper and a meeting with a family friend who's a Vatican agent) and, since the weather has not been kind and made me worried about mopping the basement (which happened two or three time in the last week or so—I am so fed up with those increasingly frequent strong thunderstorms—and twice today!), I am rather tired and still not feeling well (back pain leading to bad sleep, slight cold due to air conditioning, troubled digestion due to the heat and worries, dizziness, etc). Therefore I took a day off today to rest more, catch up on chores and review the rare interesting news of the week. My wife and I are still watching “Upstairs, Downstairs” (we're now in the third season) and I started a huge, but quite interesting autobiographical manga by Yoshihiro Tatsumi. That's it for the weekly personal update and now let's go on to the news:

Anime & Manga related, Japan, Popular Culture
Apple & iPad news
Books, Digital Edition & Library
Economy, Environment & International Politics
Health, home & garden
