Food authorities in Denmark and Finland said Thursday that Italian company Ferrero has recalled specific batches of Kinder chocolate products due to suspicions of a connection between the products and an outbreak of salmonella.

They are the latest in a string of countries to announce such recalls, including Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, the U.K, Sweden and Norway.

On Wednesday, European health officials said they are investigating a “rapidly evolving” outbreak of salmonella in 134 children that appears to be linked to chocolate Easter eggs that normally contain a surprise toy inside. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control said the chocolate products were identified “as the likely route of infection,” adding that children mainly under 10 years of age were affected. The first case was detected in Britain in January.

Britain’s Health Security Agency said it had identified 63 cases of salmonella linked to the chocolate eggs and that most were children under five. Salmonella typically causes symptoms including diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps. Most people who get sick do not need any medicine but severe cases that result in hospitalization may require antibiotics or other treatment.

“The presence of salmonella in chocolate is particularly critical, as the high fat content of the chocolate will be a protective factor for salmonella bacteria when passing through the stomach acid,” the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration said in a statement. It “is especially critical when it comes to chocolate products marketed directly to children.”

In Finland, the Food Authority said that Ferrero Scandinavia AB has recalled specified Kinder chocolate products sold in the Nordic country for the same reason.

“We are voluntarily recalling select batches of Kinder Surprise as a precautionary step,” the company said, noting there was a “possible link” to the reported salmonella cases.

Rescuers said that 10 people who were retrieved Sunday from the frigid sea and the rocky coast of a northern Japanese national park had died, a day after a tour boat with 26 aboard apparently sank in rough waters, triggering questions why it was allowed to sail.
The search for the others is still ongoing after the boat sent a distress call on Saturday afternoon saying it was sinking. The location, near the Kashuni Waterfall, is known as a difficult place to maneuver boats because of its rocky coastline and strong tide.
There were two crew and 24 passengers, including two children, on the the 17 tonne Kazu 1 when it ran into troubles while traveling off the western coast of the Shiretoko Peninsula. The coast guard said the 10 victims — seven men and three women — were adults.
The Transport Ministry launched an investigation into the boat’s operator, which had two accidents last year. The ministry said it was looking into safety standards and the decision to conduct the tour despite rough weather on Saturday.
The operator, Shiretoko Pleasure Cruise, had been instructed to take steps to improve its safety following earlier accidents in which it ran aground in June without causing injuries, and another in May, when three passengers suffered minor injuries when the boat collided with an object.
“We will thoroughly investigate what caused this situation and what kind of safety oversight was involved to allow the tour in order to prevent another accident,” Transport Minister Tetsuo Saito, who visited the area Sunday, told reporters.







④ この問題がなくならない理由は、2つある。1つは外国人労働者たちが職を失うことを恐れている。現行の法律ではいったん勤務先を辞めるとそれが自己都合であれ、会社都合であれ、国内滞在が認められなくなる。そしてもう一つは差別を厳しく取り締まる法律が日本にはないことだ。

The top artists in music hit the red carpet for the iHeartRadio music awards in Los Angeles. The show honors the “most played” artists and songs on its network of radio stations. However, most say social media is just as important as air time.

Award show host and music legend, LL Cool J, said “I think it’s all, it’s land, sea and air.” He added, “I think social media is extremely important, obviously, because you get to talk to your fans directly and then it’s also nice to touch some other platforms.”

Peytan Porter said social media was her path to getting on the carpet with a series of TikToks called “Songs I Forgot I Wrote.”

“I got nominated for this a year later and I finally started putting out music as an artist,” said Porter, “TikTok is what took me from just writing songs to get to be an artist last year. So it’s been amazing.”

Coi Leray understands the value of social media but feels that radio is just as important as an artist.

“It has to be super powerful to live throughout, you know, over the digital content because if they can’t see, they hear you, so they have to feel you. So, you know, I keep that in mind about the radio,” said Leray.

A Czech zoo has welcomed a critically endangered eastern black rhinoceros baby that has taken the name of Ukraine’s capital Kyiv in honor of that country’s resistance to invading Russian forces.

The rhino was born early on March 4 in the Dvur Kralove zoo, a rare occurrence for the facility even if it has the most rhinos belonging to the subspecies.

“The name is another expression of our support for the Ukrainian heroes,” zoo Director Premysl Rabas said.

Kyiv’s mother Eva has been taking care of him in a best possible way, the zoo said, with the baby gaining 1 kilogram (2.20 pounds) a day. It currently weighs about 50 kilograms (110 pounds).

Poaching has reduced the number of the eastern black rhinos living in the wild to around 800. The Czech park has 14.

Only three other such rhinos have been born in other zoos around the world in the last year.

A total of 47 eastern black rhinos have been born in Dvur Kralove since the park received the first one in 1971. Many of them are now in various zoos around the globe but nine have been returned to Rwanda and Tanzania to live in the wild.



Saki lined me a message. She’s in the third grade.

NHK朝ドラ「カムカムエブリバディー」を見ていて前日習ったばかりの フレーズ、オブコースが聞き取れた、と言っていた。

While watching the TV series titled “Come come everybody “ , she noticed “Of Course” was spoken there – the phrase she had learned in my lesson the day before.


Although it’s not a big thing but I can tell why she’s so excited. She was happy she was able to identify what she just learned.

Give Ukraine back to the Ukrainians ウクライナに平和を

I made a small donation to Ukraine.


Ukraine and Russia have been at war for almost a month.


I had a few chances to get to know some East Europeans and Russians while I was working for a trading company. They were very friendly, open-minded and easy to deal with.



Now it makes me sad to see them killing each other.


Luckily or unluckily, I have never seen or experienced a war directly. But I remember having been told by my father how atrocious war is.


He was in Chiba on March 10th, 1945.


He witnessed a part of the sky turn blood red in the direction of Tokyo. He soon realized it was an air raid by the US army.


Before long, there was a smell – similar to the one in cremation center.

It was so strong – strong enough to tell that a countless number of human bodies were being burned during the attack by the U.S. Air Force.


This story was told to me by my father about 50 years ago. It was so shocking that it still remains vivid in my memory.


I want them to stop killing right now. The revenge spiral must be stopped somewhere before it is too late.





One of my students sent me a photograph.

“Nomura Sensei. I’ve made a sweater for my dog. Take a look.”

“How cute it is! How did you learn to make it?” I asked her.

“I saw some YouTube tutorials and got interested in a handmade work called crochet.”she replied.

“Do you use the machine or your hands?”

“I do it all by hands. It gives me a chance to sit , relax , and enjoy my time.”

I like the way she puts it.

Doing things in a traditional way surely gives you something special.

I remember my childhood days. My mother was weaving yarns to make me a muffler for the upcoming winter. It took her many days to finish the handmade job. It didn’t matter to her how long it would take. She was just enjoying her time.

Mom did not care if her cat played with her yarn balls and ended up in tangled messes.
