Tokyo’s high quality of life

22 Sep

I just found that Monocle magazine ranked the “World’s Most Livable Cities (Quality Of Life)”.

Their criteria was:

  • Safety / low crime
  • International connectivity
  • Climate
  • Quality of architecture
  • Public transportation
  • Tolerance of others
  • Environmental issues and access to nature
  • Urban design
  • Business conditions
  • “Pro-active policy developments” and
  • Medical care

Tokyo ranked as the third most livable city in the world.

Their entire Top ten “most livable cities” are:

  1. ZΓΌrich, Switzerland
  2. Copenhagen, Denmark
  3. Tokyo, Japan
  4. Munich, Germany
  5. Helsinki, Finland
  6. Stockholm, Sweden
  7. Vienna, Austria
  8. Paris, France
  9. Melbourne, Australia
  10. Berlin, Germany

Tokyo runs like clockwork and its service culture beats any competition.

Personally, I think Tokyo should be number one! Especially in regards to safety, international connectivity, tolerance, access to nature, business conditions, medical care, and public transportation.
All of those are top-notch in Tokyo!

Pop culture quotes

22 Sep

Many times lines from movies, TV shows, TV commercials, and songs enter pop culture.

For example, everyone know Arnold Schwarzengger‘s line in the movie “The Terminator“:

I’ll be back!

Let’s play a pop culture quotes game.

To play, in the comment section of this post, correctly name where the quote in the most recent comment is from…and then write a well-known quote from pop culture for the next person to identify.

Like this…if someone writes “I’ll be back“.
The next commenter writes “The Terminator“…Next quote: “Who Shot J.R.?”

So, I’ll start.
Name where this quote came from:
Where’s the beef?
