Busy Weekend looking at Company lists

Went looking for lists of companies to prepare in Japanese and English.
Found the Tokyo Stock Exchange link to company lists in csv files.

Access DB
Using Microsoft access, I matched the Japanese names of 1,500 companies with their English equivalents which I got from SBI Japannext, a Japanese alternative exchange.

I also found a service from Thomson Reuters, PermID, which can provide links to more detailed information about each company.

I also looked at a Deutsche Bank conference on auto-related companies and ran that through the PermID service to look up details. This got me to look at URL links via Google Finance, Twitter and Google News.

Just created a translation of a Japanese article

It’s 6/13, Monday, on a rainy day in Tokyo, and I created an English translation of a Japanese article on the manga industry in Vietnam. It’s an example of using Recording to practice reading kanji, while getting the links and sharing them in the post.

Here is a link to the Japanese post (with English translation and audio links)
