Many bosses probably think: Why the hell are my employees not working hard enough. But in Japan, a Company has a totally different problem. The Cosmetic-Giant “Shiseido” will from now on turn off the light at exactly 10 o´clock pm because otherwise nobody goes home.
The boss of Shiseido thinks, that his employees are working too hard and he wants them to enjoy the free time with their family.
Shiseido reacts on a governmental request and imposed a closing time.
As the new Workaholic-Mentality is a big part in the Japanese culture, the government asks the employees to spend more time with their family. As a result the rapidly sinking birthrate in Japan should be stopped and hopefully rise again.
What topsy-turvy world!

This sounds awkward but a British chain specialized on Dissolution gifts. Usually the bride and groom are submerged with presents and gifts of all kind.

In Haiti a documentary filmmaker survives because he has had a First-Aid-APP.
I do not have an I-Phone and I´m not part of the “App-O-Mania”.
But in these days, the American documentary filmmaker Dan Woolley survived in the ruins of a broken house because he has had a First-Aid-APP on his I-Phone. He was alone with his I-Phone for five days before he was found by a French auxiliary. The First-Aid-APP enabled him to bandage a deep cut in his leg with his T-shirt. A sock was used to stop the bleeding on his head.
Furthermore, the I-Phone helped him not to fall asleep. This would have been – in state of a shock – deadly.
Wonder will never cease!
