今日の出来事から 10月10日(月) 軍事演習開始

 朝鮮半島有事に備えた米韓合同の海軍演習が、10日から15日まで朝鮮半島沖で展開されます。演習エリアは当初、南海と西海(黄海)沖に限定されていましたが、急遽東海(日本海)でも実施されることとなりました。東海では先月にも北朝鮮の地上目標物を想定し、攻撃を加える演習が実施されました。これに対して北朝鮮が何をするのか?そこが怖いところです。

 ポーラ。ジョーンズを招待? この人誰だっけ?で調べてみました。ビル・クリントンがアーカンソー州知事時代にセクハラした女性で、85万ドルで和解しています。それなのになぜ出てくる? モニカ・ルインスキーの問題もありましたが、まあ史上まれにみる悪評大統領でした、その妻が今度は大統領になりかけているわけで、それならビジネスマンの方がマシ? というかこの国には他に候補者がいなかったのか???ですよ。
 第2回の討論会を見ましたが、口攻撃ばかり、第3回もそうなることでしょう。アメリカはネガティブキャンペーンが好きな国です。テレビのCMもそうでしょう。自動車では現代がトヨタと比較し、ホンダもトヨタとの比較広告でいかにホンダが良いかを訴えています。

 インドネシア空軍は、中国が領有権を主張する南シナ海の南端で大規模な軍事演習を実施しました。フィリピンの突如とした米国離れが招いた域内の先行き不透明感を、さらに強めています。
インドネシアのジョコ大統領はナトゥナ諸島のラナイで、何百人もの軍当局者とともに、戦闘機約70機によるドッグファイト(空中戦)や沿岸目標物への爆弾投下を含む演習を視察しました。
 日本も尖閣の上空に戦闘機を飛ばして、「ここはわが領土」と主張することです。海上も同じ、入って来られる前に停めることが大事。

 本当の金持ちになったらどうする? これが彼らの持ち物! 10億や20億では金持ちではありません。最低1000億以上の資産がないと金持ちとは言えないのです。As city property prices keep on rising luxury private islands are becoming more and more popular for the elite. Some of the best private islands in the world are up for sale for anywhere from $400,000 (£272k) to over $64 million (£43.50m).プライベートな島を持つ
But to get there, you’re obviously going to need your own private supersonic jet. One particular company, the Aerion Corporation, last year took its first order for its $110 million (£82m) supersonic private jets, which carry up to 12 passengers at one and a half times the speed of sound and cut flight times from London to New York to less than three hours. Jealous? Well don’t worry, they’ll be in service by 2023, so you’ve still got a few more years to get saving.音速で飛べる自家用機を持つ
Alternative transport has become one of the biggest status symbols as the super-rich cast aside their Lamborghinis in favor of Teslas – electric cars with increasingly high performance. They’re obviously not cheap though, as the upcoming Model X SUV costs around $94,000 (£72k). This Back to the Future-style motor has doors that lift up automatically and can reach up to 130mph.電気自動車のハイエンドを持つ
Having a bodyguard just doesn’t quite cut it these days. Many celebrities have started flaunting attractive bodyguards as the new flashy status symbol. Some of these include Adele’s 25-year-old Dutch bodyguard Peter Van der Veen, Jenifer Lawrence’s body man Greg Lenz and Heidi Klum’s South African bodyguard Martin Kristen.ボディガードを雇う
Like many things on this list both money and power are the key to receiving the best perks and the same goes for luxury cars. When Ford recently unveiled its GT Supercar, motor enthusiasts were lining up to get their own. But with only 500 cars made, Ford will choose which applicants – who had to apply online – will be allowed to shell out $400,000 (£274k) for the vehicle.限定版のスーパーカーを持つ
For the super-rich, it is quite possible (and as it turns out, increasingly common) to purchase your very own private submarine. This became a reality in 2013 when the ‘Spymaster Orcasub’ (pictured) went on sale at Harrods for around $9 million (£6m) – although there is a ‘cheaper’ $3 million (£2m) version available too. This extravagant toy will allow you to remain underwater for 80 hours, traveling as far as 6,000 feet under the ocean.潜水艦を持つ
To get one of these titanium cards you’ll need to be invited to apply for one. While American Express is selective about what it takes to get an invitation it’s thought you need to charge at least $250,000 (£171k) per year. Once approved, the initiation fee will set you back $5,000 (£3,400) and after that there’s a $2,500 (£1,700) annual fee.ブラックの上、センチェリオンカードを持つ 会費2500ドル
Mansions have always been a pretty good indicator of a person’s wealth. But now these humble abodes are constantly increasing in scale, requiring the rich to splash out on property at the most luxurious end of the scale – we’re talking over $50 million (£38m) for some properties (like the one pictured above).邸宅を持つ
Submarines might by the new way for the mega-rich to travel, but superyachts aren’t going anywhere. Wealthy CEOs, Russian oligarchs and Saudi royalty all want their own superyacht as a way of flashing their status, and they don’t come cheap. One of the world’s most expensive superyachts is currently being made and is expected to sell for $1 billion (£690m).スーパーヨットを持つ

 Car and Driverが選ぶベストミニバン
It’s an all-new minivan with a new name (that was once worn by a Chrysler crossover)—and by our estimate, it’s also the best. As a family hauler, safety is key and the Pacifica boasts available active safety tech such as a 360-degree camera, lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning and adaptive cruise control.1位 パシフィカ 287-hp V-6
The Odyssey has charmed our staff for years with its unrivaled road manners, smooth powertrain, and accommodating interior. With room for up to eight passengers to sit comfortably, the Odyssey also is fuel-efficient, returning 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, thanks to the cylinder-deactivation feature on its 248-hp 3.5-liter V-6.2位 オデッセイ  248-hp 3.5-liter V-6.
It’s the Camry of minivans: The Sienna appeals to families looking for roomy, comfortable, and high-quality transportation—and it succeeds. A 266-hp 3.5-liter V-6 paired to a six-speed automatic drives the front wheels or—in a segment exclusive—all four wheels, a bonus when the weather turns nasty.3位 シエナ  266-hp 3.5-liter V-6
Snazzy, sporty, and striking aren’t words you associate with minivans—but the ambitious folks at Kia have managed to bake a little of each quality into the Sedona. Powered by a 276-hp V-6 with a six-speed transmission and boasting a smooth ride, the Sedona also injects a little fun into daily kid-ferrying duties.4位 セドナ 276-hp V-6
Whether it’s shuttling kids, hauling stuff, or providing comfort and space to spread out on road trips, the Town & Country faithfully performs its duties. The 283-hp V-6 and six-speed automatic provide good power and fuel economy. However, like its sibling, the Grand Caravan, its old design puts it behind more modern rivals.5位 タウン&カントリー 283-hp V-6
ちなみに6位はキャラバン、7位がクエストでした。
最近のミニバンの進化
<p>Minivan designers have steadily created vehicles with more open, box-like interiors. The obvious benefit of this is greater cargo space and leg room. The not-so-obvious benefit is greater interior flexibility.</p><p>Both the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2015/07/10/2015-kia-sedona-review/">Kia Sedona</a> and <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/09/25/2015-toyota-sienna-review-quick-spin/">Toyota Sienna</a> take advantage of this flexibility by giving second-row passengers a taste of first-class accommodations with reclining seats and built-in ottomans. This kind of on-the-go comfort was once reserved to top-tier limos, and the living room. And now the children of middle-class families can enjoy it on a daily basis.</p>後部座席にリクライナー(キア)
<p>Kids are messy. This is one of life's few indisputable truths, and one that every parent deals with constantly. Honda and Chrysler know this and offer a way to help fight the the clean fight.</p><p>Both the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2011/01/18/2011-honda-odyssey-review-road-test/">Odyssey</a> and <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2016/03/21/2017-chrysler-pacifica-first-drive-review-video/">Pacifica</a> offer built in <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/03/26/2014-honda-odyssey-in-car-vacuum-new-york/">vacuum cleaners</a> for sucking up crumbs, dirt and anything else that may migrate to the van floor. Not only does this mean you don't have to find an extension cord and lug a vacuum out to the van, you can vacuum anywhere and at anytime. No mess can hide in these family haulers.</p>掃除機内臓(ホンダ)
<p>Hybrids and plug-ins are not new to the automotive industry, but a plug-in hybrid van very much is. Most hybrids have focused on maximizing fuel efficency, and that means most of them have been smaller, lighter vehicles. Meanwhile, families who need larger vehicles haven't had many fuel-frugal options.</p><p>The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid changes all that by offering plug-in technology and a <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2016/01/11/2017-chryser-pacifica-hybrid-minivan-detroit-official/">30-mile electric range</a> on FCA's most practical platform. This vehicle represents a big step in bringing plug-ins and electric cars to mainstream buyers. It also provides an excellent opportunity for families to put a big dent in fuel bills.</p>プラグインハイブリッド(クライスラー)
まあ、こうしてミニバンは進化していくわけですが、クライスラー、買えますか? 買えないでしょう。アメ車の中で一番信頼性の低いメーカーの車ですよ。買えるわけがない。まあ、1万5千マイルまではOKかも知れません。
となると、オデッセイかシエナに絞られるわけです。後は好みです。スタイルで言えばオデッセイになり、総合でいえばシエナですか? 私の今の4ランナーがリース切れになるのが間近で、次はシエナが有力です。


 Atlanta, GA 7-Day Forecast
 水曜日までは朝が冷え込みます。

 今日はお休みの会社が多いのでは? うちは関係ありません、いつもの月曜日となります。大きな祝日でないと休みません。コロンバスデーの前後はすでに「秋休み化」しています。夏休みと冬休みの間に何もなく、子供が疲れるからでしょうか? しかし、11月末になれば感謝祭、そして12月はクリスマスとイベントが山ほどあります。まあ、これが良いのか悪いのかは知りませんよ。
 連休モードもあって、先週末は少しパッとしない売り上げで終えています。ここが辛抱の時期、それでも魚は買わないといけませんし、大変です。
 インスタはどんどん投稿していますが、先週だけで、フォロワーが20人近く増えて現在349人になりました。これを年内に500人にまで上げたいですね。自助努力で上げることが大事です。ハッシュタグの工夫は大事で、よくフォロアーがある人のものを見ると、いろいろあります。#sogood #wowなどがそうで、そのあたりを真似ています。
 魚や寿司に関心のある人は多いので、まだまだ取り込めると思います、まあ来年末に1千人でしょうか。売り上げの伸びにそれがつながってくれば良いのですが。
