Nouveau projet de 10 ans Okinawa croissance yeux The government hopes to turn Okinawa into an international distribution and tourism hub by enacting a new law in March on the prefecture’s economic development over the next decade. Under the envisaged law, Okinawa’s governor would work out an economic development program for the prefecture based on its close proximity to China and Southeast Asia, a draft bill showed Friday. The program would include selecting areas where logistics and tourism companies can enjoy tax and other breaks, according to the draft. The legislation will also stipulate that the central government would provide untied subsidies to Okinawa, the draft said. The bill is designed to replace the law on special measures to stimulate Okinawa’s economy, which expires March 31, the end of the current fiscal year, and serve as a guideline for the prefecture’s future economic development.

Six Amazing Websites that Make Your Writing Stronger Long writing activities are not very frequently done in class. I tend to think that my students are like me; I need the right kind of atmosphere. Writing requires time, silence and lots of inspiration. Ideally, at this time of the year, I would probably wish to be sitting next to a fireplace with the most perfect instagrammable snow falling outside my window while drinking a nice cup of coffee waiting for inspiration to strike. Unfortunately, there isn’t any snow where I live so I’ll have to make do with a bit of rain and some reddish trees. Note: you won’t find “instagrammable” in the dictionary

Interdiction de boire hors de la base imposée pour les membres du service d'Okinawa CAMP LESTER, Okinawa — Servicemembers on Okinawa have been banned from drinking alcohol anywhere off base and will be subject to breathalyzer tests at entrance gates following yet another booze-related incident, the III Marine Expeditionary Force announced Saturday. Military drivers with a blood alcohol content over 0.03 percent will not be allowed to leave base, and passengers and pedestrians also may be tested for intoxication and sent home if over the limit, the service said in a Facebook post. The drinking limit is in line with Japanese law, which is stricter than what drivers are used to in the United States. The new ban also tightens the supply of alcohol from on-base establishments by barring sales at clubs and shoppettes after 10 p.m. The ban comes as U.S. forces in Japan have struggled for over a month to stop drunken misbehavior and crime off base following the alleged gang-rape of an Okinawan woman by two sailors. On Friday night, Okinawa police arrested a U.S.
