Asfar Rashid: Japan, Land of The Rising Sun

by User Not Found | Feb 14, 2014

First week in Japan has been a tremendous experience in Kansai Gaidai University. It was dominated by the week long orientation program where students all over the world joined the program. In the last one week I have socialized with students and faculty from the various parts of the world and hence I feel like a global citizen. I made an appointment to meet some Japanese friends at the university campus to visit Osaka city. Osaka station was large, so I was nervous. When I asked for directions, the people always showed me the way with a smile. It gave me a good impression, so, fortunately, I could explore the city comfortably with friends. They showed me around Osaka. They treated me to Japanese foods such as sushi, yaki, and denbura. The Japanese cuisine was very good. We had a good time. After the day wonderful city tour of Osaka, the university arranged Kyoto tour which was filled with historic temples and mountains. Kyoto tour has been the best experience for me because I got the feeling of serenity walking around the beautiful Buddhist temples. Now, that my classes are about to begin, I am fully focused on my courses and represent Claflin University in the global stage.

Asfar Rashid is a sophomore at Claflin University.

    There was a fan walking the Ohio State concourse wearing a

  4. San Diego Chargers.Most fans are like O'Hara, though. They know that the NCAA restricts Ohio State from authorizing a jersey with a current player's name on it, but they buy them from online retailers.The most popular one is AliExpress.com, the international version of Amazon. It's an aggregator of countless independent retailers that will send consumers in the United States the product directly. It usually takes three weeks, but the product comes. But sometimes those products are sold second-handedly on places like EBay or Amazon
  5. San Francisco 49ers, which is how unsuspecting consumers unaware of what's legitimate end up buying them."The people I've talked to, the majority of people know they're fake and don't care," Van Brimmer said. "That's distressing." Impact on Ohio State Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith told cleveland.com that a very small portion of the program's revenue on apparel comes from
  6. Seattle Seahawkssales. It may be smaller than he thought off hand.
  7. St.Louis Ramssales accounted for less than one percent of Ohio State's overall apparel business the last fiscal year. That figure is down from the six-year average of 1.51 percent. Jersey sales peaked in 2011 and declined every year since until last season
  8. Stitched NFL Patch, but last season included special national championship product. During the last fiscal year -- July of 2014 to June of 2015 -- Ohio State made $1.6 million on
  9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which was 0.7 percent of total apparel sales that totaled $221 million. Sales of T-Shirts, sweaters, hats, shorts, pants and things like that make up the majority. The number of jerseys may seem overwhelming at a game, but in the grand scheme of apparel, they're not the top thing purchased.But that doesn't mean the the mass counterfeit sales of

"Counterfeiting is a crime."And Ohio State is having a really hard time of shutting it down. In the old days, counterfeit jerseys were made in mass in places like China and brought through a port of
  11. Washington Redskinsinto the United States in a place like New Orleans. Many times, those counterfeits were intercepted by U.S. customs agents and they never saw the secondary market. Now those manufacturers are making and shipping those counterfeits directly to the consumer, so it's much harder for Ohio State to track and shut down. Ohio State tries to shut down every fraudulent manufacture it comes across -- places like AliExpress have fraud departments -- but most times those manufacturers pop back up under different names almost immediately.Ohio State sales are
  12. NBA Shop, though. It's just hard not to notice when you go to a football game that those fakes are floating around everywhere you look, whether the fan knows it or not."From a total sales perspective, we've seen nothing but increases this year," Van Brimmer said. "It's hard to say what the impact is because things are good
  13. NHL Shop. If things were in the toilet we could tell you something's going on and things are going badly."But the problem with these kind of goods is that we can't track them and we don't know how much we're losing or how many of the illegal goods are actually in the market place."

    So how does a particular begin the process of ourselves being novelist? May very well functioned for the purpose of cheap cv writing services for the purpose of decades nowadays not to mention I just would love to beginning our system nowadays. Whereby truly does a particular perhaps even initiate when this happens?
