休業 とはなんでしょうかなあ

Postby QuakerBits » Thu 10.25.2012 11:44 am

hey guise(: sooo, I'm trying to make an MCD, but I can't seem to pin down what this word is acting as?

here's the entire info(comes from Tokyo Midtown podcast[very good podcast if you're looking for one])

12月30日のゲストはジャーナリストの上杉隆(うえすぎ・たかし)さんです。今年は福島第一原発事故の情報隠ぺいについて異論を唱え続けてきましたが、いよいよ明日でジャーナリスト休業を宣言していらっしゃいます。今日は、言いたいことを全部吐き出していただきましょう。

so my translation. I'll start at 今年, the underline is just what I don't get, and bold is the word.

"many opinions have continued spewing out regarding this years concealment of information about fukushima's radiation accident, however, tomorrow is at last declared a journalist holiday"

????

It doesn't seem to make any sense to me for some reason>_< also sorry if I made this confusing... need foood :blush:

よろしくお願いします :bow: :bow:

Threw me off too, but it means exactly what it says. This Uesugi guy decided that there should be a day where journalists are not active.

I think 異論を唱えて続けてきました The subject is still Uesugi san, so 'He has continued to advocate his argument/theory' (or something like that.) This would apply to the final sentence too; the declaring is done by him :)

It means that Mr. Uesugi has declared that he's going to stop his activities as a journalist tomorrow.
