It was fine and very hot in the morning, but became cloudy in the evening as the weather forecast said.

I am now watching sports news on TV.  It was 5th day of 2014 July Grand Sumo Tournament in  Nagoya.  They say Yokozuna Kakuryu (横綱 鶴竜) lost by Egyptian Hiramaku (平幕) sumo wrestler Osunaarashi (大砂嵐).   This is called kinboshi (金星), literally gold star.  He is a Muslim and now it is the time of Ramadan but he won. 

Another big news was the announcement of Akutagawa Prize and Naoki Prize, which are most famous Japanese literary awards given twice a year.
