[4] The 49th Annual Training Course started

The 49th Annual Training on Seismology, Earthquake Engineering and Tsunami
Disaster Mitigation courses started on October 2nd 2008. In this year, we
invite 22 participants from 11 countries including 7 participants from
China, whom we receive as part of Japanese assistance for reconstruction
after the Sichuan Earthquake occurred on May 12, 2008.
These training courses will be carried out until September next year in
cooperation with GRIPS and JICA. After getting through the courses with
credits required, the master's degree will be awarded to the participants.
So, we hope all 2008-09 participants will take the master's degree one year
later.

[6] Mr. Gergorio C. Ingco (1963-64E, Philippines) passed away

I regret to inform you that Mr. Ingco already passed away last October 4,
1996 at the age of eighty. Therefore, any personal information regarding him
is insignificant now. However, I am sending you two pictures inorder to
share with you. The first attachment is his photo taken at home with his
wife Olimpia C. Ingco who had eternally joined him last October 10,2003. The
other attachment is a group photo of the UNESCO Fellowship, Class 1963-1964
which was taken in Tokyo, Japan. It might be of any help. In behalf of my
parents, I would like to thank you for the utmost concern.
