Leucosceptrum stellipilum has shown its beautiful purple flowers since the day before yesterday in my south east yard. It has been rainy for six days, and it was a very cold rain that I have never experienced here in October. What a strange weather it was! Today it is a lovely day a bid windy. Next week a cyclone is to approach Tokyo area. Again, it must be a bad weather.

Tricyrtis macranthopsis has blossomed in my north east yard this year! This orange-yellow flower is very much appealing to people who love autumn flowers. Tricyrtis hirta f. albescens shows its pure white flower in the north yard. Those ones had not shown any flowers last year, and survived the last year summer. What lovely flowers they have this year. I'm happy to see them again.

The Symposium chair of Swarm Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2017 SIS) has just sent an email to me. His reason for assigning my paper into a poster session is that he has no vacancy for the oral sessions! Is it the reason for that? Meanwhile, my young friends inside the Conference had begun to move for getting a better direction so as my elder colleagues and friends get in touch with various people who care of the situation on me. They are moving to help me on this matter among them. I'm very much thankful to all of them. Somebody knows something good should be done in the world always. I really thank God who allows me to work with those nice people.

A presentation form notice of IEEE SSCI 2017 Hawaii came to me yesterday. I have already got an acceptance letter by email a couple of weeks ago. I sent my revised camera ready with a copyright form, and registered the conference. That notice let me know that they assigned my paper into the poster presentation. What is that? I didn't have any negative remarks on the review evaluation such as fair or reject from all the three reviewers for my paper. What is going on? I have sent emails to my friends inside the conference and asked them for finding the true reason for that kind of strange decision. Anyhow, a notice after acceptance without showing any reason to put the paper into a poster session is very much unacceptable and makes people unpleasant. Really bad an idea isn't it? After acceptance email, you can know whether your paper is put in an oral or a poster session? This is very much uneasy to follow. They should show respect to contributors!

I found two purple flowers of Strobilanthes oligantha in my north yard this morning. The flowers shrinks within a day long; you can see its blossom from dawning to sunset. This is one of heralds that tell the coming of autumn season.

Anemonopsis macrophylla has a light purple flower, first this year. That is really lovely. Quite late for its blooming rather than usual. What a nice messenger of the end of summer it is! Finally, the long lasting heat of summer is close to the end.

Hot and wet air has covered Tokyo again this week. Everything is full of moisture. Very much uneasy to do anything. What a bad weather we suffer from toward the end of summer!
