Tokyo

Midnight on Thursday night at Akabane Station on the Utsunomiya Line. After a night’s hard drinking with workmates, the salarymen tumble out of the sardine-packed carriages. They are at various stages of inebriation. Some rush to the Gentlemens’. Some don’t make it. Some lucky ones are held up by their workmates. Some sink into in a stupor of fresh vomit. One starts running wildly around the station platform, dancing up and down the stairs, The same situation can be found at many stations,

Yamanote line:
Songs, jokes, laughter, reeling drunks.
Tomorrow’s far off.

For alcohol is the glue that binds together Japanese society, the loosener of formality, the path to intimacy and friendship, the force behind major decisions, the balm after a day’s drudgery, the thread that knits long-lasting relationships, the escape from home and family.

Just a few office ladies amidst the drinkers. We are still in a land where there is a vast difference between the lives of men and women. “It’s a woman’s job”, says one of my Department’s secretaries about the part-time job she has. Women earn much less than men for the same work, and are generally content to do so. They are rarely promoted. Few women occupy important academic positions. And hardly any do so in the business world. Many give up work after marriage. It may not “look good” for the wife to work.

Despite the fact that some 40% of 30 to 40 year-olds in Tokyo prefer to remain single, there are still social pressures to get married. Matchmakers, nakodo, are still very active, and arranged marriages, omiai, are quite frequent; my 28-year-old friends tell me their mothers have encouraged them to get in touch with a nakodo. And the world of Junchiro Tanizaka’s The MaKioka Sisters, a biting satirical novel, by a bitter Jane Austen, which satirizes the snobbery of a decadent upper-class family in the 1930s, who desperately try to find a suitable husband for Yukiko, threatened with being left on the shelf, has not yet completely disappeared. The MaKioka family name must not be sullied, and detective agencies are put on the trail of all future candidates. Such detective agencies still exist.

But life is not so bad for women. Men still hand over all their pay packet to the lady of the house and in return get a little pocket money. The clientele in Los Toros Spanish restaurant in Ginza on a Saturday lunchtime is 90% female. Groups of friends, old school pals reminisce away Saturday afternoon while the husbands are putting in an extra day at the office.


I watch again Lost in Translation. I recognize the Hyatt in Shinjuku and the view over Yoyogi Park and Meiji-Jinja Shrine and the huge video screens in Shibuya. Harris and Charlotte are lost in Tokyo. They are puzzled by the Martian-like behaviour of this pygmy race. Japan and Japanese are strange and weird. Communication is minimal. Harris is surprised by an unexpected pseudo-S&M visitor sent to his hotel room: “Lip my skirt!”, and we are back in the corny jokes on the mispronunciation of r and l: “Loger Moore”, “The Lat Pack”, “Brack Tie”, “Frank Sinatola”.

The food is impossible: “What kind of restaurant is it that makes you cook the food at the table?” Contemporary Tokyo is no more than kitsch: Japanese men are called Charlie Brown and Hans; it is the traditional Japanese Suntory whisky actor Harris is earning a fortune to promote. I remember an audition in Sao Paulo when I unsuccessfully tried to make a similar fortune. Only the actress Evelyn Waugh seems to be content in Tokyo.

A chauvinistic film which looks down at Johnny Foreigner and shows only Americans can have any deeper feelings. Or a satire on American narrow-mindedness? Or two people lost in a crazy big city?


Near Ueno Station I see three junior sumo rikishi wrestlers out shopping. They are easily recognizable not just because of their bulk but also because of their hairstyles. They look cold in kimono and slippery sandals, but their clothese are regulated by their “do”, the prescribed form of life of a sumo wrestler, the do, which regulates all aspects of the rikishi’s life.

Clip-clop of sandals,
Bulk, kimono, oiled hair:
Rikishi pass by.

The cold air over the Sea of Japan picks up moisture and deposits a metre of snow on the North coast of Japan. But Tokyo, on the southern coast, is dry and cold. A thousand miles to the south-west, the cherry-blossom buds will soon be visible. But I shall not be there to see them.

The U.S. Government is the nation's largest provider of financial assistance to women & minority owned small businesses. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is Congressionally mandated to assist the nation’s small businesses in meeting their financing needs. The SBA has small business loan programs and services to meet most small business needs. More information on U.S. Government Small Business Loans can be found at **www.SBASmallBusinessLoans.com**

How do Government SBA Small Business Loans work?

When a small business owner applies to a lending institution for a business loan, the lender reviews the application and decides if it merits a busiuness loan or if it requires an SBA guaranty. SBA backing on the business loan is then requested by the lender. In guaranteeing the business loan, the SBA assures the lender that, in the event the borrower does not repay the loan, the government will reimburse the lender for its loss. By providing this guaranty, the Small Business Administration helps tens of thousands of small business owners get financing they would not otherwise obtain.

How much money can I borrow?

Here are a few examples of what you can get from SBA small business loans programs:

7(a) Loan Guaranty Program

The 7(a) Loan Guaranty Program is the SBA's primary small business loan program. A maximum loan amount of $2 million has been established for 7(a) business loans.

Low Documentation Loan (SBALowDoc)

SBALowDoc is the SBA’s quick and easy program that provides a guaranty on small business loans of $150,000 or less. Once you have met your lender’s requirements for credit, the lender may request an SBALowDoc guaranty for up to 85 percent of the loan amount. You complete the front of a one-page SBA application, and the lender completes the back. At SBALowDoc centers, the agency processes completed applications within 36 hours.

SBAExpress

This method makes it easier and faster for lenders to provide small business loans of $250,000 or less. The SBA provides a rapid response through its PLP processing center in Sacramento, Calif.— within 36 hours of receiving the complete application package. Lenders use their own procedures to approve and service the loans.

CommunityExpress

The CommunityExpress pilot program is designed to spur economic development and job creation in untapped rural and inner city communities by providing loans and technical assistance. Loan proceeds may be used for most business purposes, including start-up, expansion, equipment purchases, working capital, inventory or real-estate acquisitions.
To be eligible for CommunityExpress, current or prospective small businesses must be located in low- and moderate-income urban and rural areas.

While CommunityExpress is similar to SBAExpress, here are some differences:

• CommunityExpress focuses on predesignated geographic areas that primarily low- and moderate-income urban and rural areas.

• The maximum loan amount under CommunityExpress is $250,000.

• CommunityExpress lenders, together with the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, provide hands-on technical training and support, both before and after loan closings, through community-based, nonprofit NCRC member organizations.

7(m) Microloan Program

The SBA’s Microloan Program provides very small loans up to $35,000 to small businesses and not-for-profit child-care centers through a network of locally based intermediary lenders. In addition to making the loans, the intermediaries provide management and technical assistance to microborrowers and potential microborrowers.

What can I use the loan proceeds for?

You can use an SBA small business loan to:

• expand or renovate facilities;
• purchase machinery, equipment, fixtures and leasehold improvements;
• finance receivables and augment working capital;
• refinance existing debt (with compelling reason);
• finance seasonal lines of credit;
• construct commercial buildings; and/or
• purchase land or buildings.

How do I repay the loan?

The length of time for repayment depends on the use of the loan proceeds and the ability of your small business to repay the loan.The term is usually 5 to 10 years for working capital, and up to 25 years for fixed assets such as the purchase or major renovation of real estate or purchase of equipment. There are no balloon payments, prepayment penalties, application fees or points permitted with these small business loans. Repayment plans may be tailored to each individual small business.

How do I get started?

You submit a business loan application to a lender for initial review. If the lender approves the business loan subject to an SBA guaranty, a copy of the loan application and a credit analysis are forwarded by the lender to the nearest SBA office. After SBA approval, the lending institution closes the business loan and disburses the funds; you make monthly loan payments directly to the lender. As with any loan, you are responsible for repaying the full amount of the loan. Visit **www.SBASmallBusinessLoans.com** for more info.

I am doing some research on various online detective programss and ran across this page. It's not "exactly" what I am looking for, but I think your readers may be interested in reading my online detective reviews at Online Detective Reviews. The more information people have before spending their money -- the better! Sorry for the self promotion, just trying to get the word out while looking for sites to review. On to the next -- thanks!

Dear Judgment Holder:

Please allow me to introduce our exclusive, extremely valuable service
available to you and your clients. We recover debts for people who have won a monetary
judgment in court. We are not a collection agency, but judgment recovery specialists.

Our records show that you have been awarded a numerous amount of judgments in Mississippi. As a judgment holder, you have the right to assign someone else to collect your judgment. If you have not been able to collect theses judgments, we are interested in collecting for you. We specialize in locating individuals hidden assets and seizing them to satisfy judgments. Our company’s fee is based solely on a percentage of what is actually collected.

There is a time limitation on collecting a judgment. If you do not properly act on your
claim, it will expire soon. Please don’t let the hard work you have already put into
winning this judgment go to waste.

Again, the out of pocket cost to you is nothing. We will bear all expenses involved in the
search and collection. You will receive a substantial percentage of the total amount of
assets found and seized within thirty days of collection.
If you are interested in collecting your money, with no cost to you in advance, please
contact me at (662) 624-2844 or (662) 902-2543 immediately to arrange for assignment and terms. Since your judgment has been nothing more than an IOU for so long, you have nothing to lose by allowing us to collect for you. Don’t delay – turn that worthless piece of paper into cash.
