For Leyva, he is the best rival ever, so he is very conscious of the Japanese gymnast. The writer of this article says that Uchimura has no flaws, in other words, he has the tough tricks, elegance and precision. It seems that he is respected as a special gymnast.

    21. 21. One Page on Marie Antoinette Her real name is Marie Antonia Josepha Johanna Antoinette. She was born in Austria on November 2nd 1755. Her mother is Marie Theresa and she was her ninth child. It is well-known that she said “Let them eat cakes” when Austrian citizens couldn’t get some breads to eat because of poverty. However, in actual fact, she didn’t say it. There’re two possible explanations why this phrase was made. One is that it was said by an aunt of Louis XIV. The other is that the French word for cake, ‘gateau’ ,is pronounced very close to a word which means a type of plain bread. She was executed on October 16th 1793. She is known as a lavish spender, but when the citizens suffered from poverty, she didn’t spend money on repairing the castle for herself, and didn’t let her children buy some toys. She also contributed foods to poor children in the castle.biography (http://www.biography.com/people/marie-antoinette-9398996) (http://www.marie-antoinette.org/articles/biography_english/) (http://www.funtrivia.com/en/People/Marie-Antoinette-15674.html) Mai / P2-14

    27. 27. One Page on Walter Elias Disney About his life He was born on December 5th in 1901 in U.S. In his childhood, He was interested in drawing pictures. When he was 17 years old, he decided to devote his life to commercial art and soon this decision led creating animation. He has run out of money because of business, but he wasn’t afraid of failure. Then, he expanded his production thanks for help of his brother. In 1928, he created one super star, Mickey Mouse, which debuted in “Steamboat Willie”. After that, he released many animation movies and created many famous characters. In 1955, his dream of opening an amusement park came true as Disneyland Park. In 1961, he founded a professional school of creative and arts for future talent. In addition, he was noted the need of improving the quality of urban life in America, so he planned Walt Disney World Resort, including The Magic Kingdom Park and it was established after his death. It is safe to say that Walt Disney was a hero of 20th century and we won’t be able to see such a great man. His accomplishment & works (These are examples) 1928-Steamboat Willie 1931-Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 1940-Fantasia 1953-Peter pan 1955-opened Disneyland 1964-Mary Poppins etc… Question & Answer Just Disney Q1.

    29. 29. Murasaki Shikibu I like “the tale of Genji.” And I think Murasaki Shikibu must be a great person. I heard her real name may be Kaoruko Fujiwara and she may be born in 970 in major class. I found two articles . First article is about the Tale of Genji that she wrote. Title 1000 years of “Genji” By Eriko Arita October, 12, 2008 URL: http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/ JT fl20081012x1.html This article was written in commemoration of the 1000th Anniversary of the creation the story. The tale of Genji is said the oldest long poem- tales novel. The article explained many scenes and people in this story, so if you have not read the story, please read this article. Second, although it is not newspaper articles, it is so detailed about Murasaki Shikibu that I choose it. URLhttp://www.eigotown.com/culture/tjapan/ person/person_p1.shtml Title MURASAKI SHIKIBU 980-1014 The article explained she was a nyobo (court-lady) who served Shoshi, wife of the Emperor Ichijo. The article admired her great task but confrontation between her and Sei shonagon. This gives us some idea of two great Japanese woman‘s thoughts and the kind of life they were living I had two questions about those webpage. 1, Why can you prove that the origin of this story is so old?Saki / R2-14 2, How did Murasaki shikibu describe Sei shonagon in her daily? The story has many men and women. Please read and find the favorite person who you can share the
