A second conference has notified me with a good news on my submission, which discusses a new ant-inspired algorithm using Particle Swarm Optimization. This conference had been full of bad rumors (which were actually true) in the past decade, and now it is listed in one of the best conferences of IEEE in the area of machine learning. This dramatic appreciation is due to the advent of deep learning in machine learning. My paper is assigned to the oral presentation among six accepted ones of Swarm Intelligence Session. I'm very happy to receive this good news, after a bad news that had come to me yesterday.

I've got a positive notification on my paper today. I used a word "positive" but not "of acceptance", because it is almost equivalent to "reject". Why? I tracked the history of this conference series, and compared with the records of DBLP and Springer. This conference series accepts many full papers and a smaller number of short papers with a considerable number of extended abstracts. Short papers and extended abstracts are presented in the form of posters, and only short papers are included into a LNCS book. The notification looks that all the accepted papers are included into the LNCS, but it is not the case. My case is "extended abstract", that I consider a kind of rejection in this conference. This conference series lacks academic sincerity anyhow.

These years since 2013, everything has changed in many conferences around the world. Many good conferences have become clubs or sororities. We should revive intelligent diversity and respect to audience in academia.

Trump-Kim meeting in Singapore disappointed me; it is just a fake agreement, which is fake nothing full of nothing. You should not hail such that nothing!
After the cyclone, I had expected a bright day in Tokyo, but it was just cloudy and humid. I felt as if I were in South Asian countries. What is going on this summer in Tokyo? What a bad climate it is this year! I really would like to go out for somewhere much more comfortable.

A Pacific cyclone approaches Japan's mainland and is to come close to Tokyo Area tomorrow noon. After mid-summer like heat for these days, it is like late spring outside. Everything in my back yards enjoy rainfall that waters the ground. Epipactis thunbergii A. Gray shows its orange flowers, which count over twenty this year. Year by year climate changes dynamically and some plants disappear and some survive it in my yards.

President Trump canceled the planned summit with DPRK's Kim in June in Singapore just now. This is one of his wise decisions that are not so many on him. These two months that have passed since this March gave Kim to complete his ICBM project. Meanwhile, President negotiated him to free three Americans from captivity. This is a good deal at least from negotiations with that demoniac state. A bad news is that President's letter sounds like an ultimatum that is just a step before air bombing whether it is strategic or with nuclear weapons. Maybe time is not left for the next step.

Our community is in crisis. Last May I found an around seventy-years-old guy streaking on a back street early in the afternoon. Today I caught an around eighty-years-old thief guy on the same backstreet late in the afternoon. I visited two houses that the crook creeped in with a cop, though house owners didn't respond to our calling. They stayed inside the houses at the time; we checked it. Their neighbors told us that those two persons had never have any connections with others for these five to six years. What is going on there? Those two are around the middle age according to the neighbors. What are they do daily? Anyway we have lost any clue to approach them.

Old crooks, middle age retreats a.k.a. "Hikikomori", ... ... This is the reality of the modern Tokyo's urban community. We might see a day on which we should find a body in those houses next May ... ...
