A couple of stories that caught my eye:
-- Almost two-thirds of schoolchildren would not mind if social media had never been invented, a survey has indicated.And
The study provides evidence of a growing backlash among young people disillusioned with the negative aspects of the technology, such as online abuse and fake news.
-- Japan has again been forced to confront its work culture after labour inspectors ruled that the death of a 31-year-old employee of the country’s public broadcaster, NHK, had been caused by overwork.Of course the kids surveyed were 9, 10, and 11 and the company whose employee died waited three years to announce the death out of ... uhhh ... respect for the family. How suave the Japanese can be ... not much different from Americans in their reworking of camouflage, but it always seems so picture perfect when the Japanese do it. And if you don't believe me, just ask them.
Miwa Sado, who worked at the broadcaster’s headquarters in Tokyo, logged 159 hours of overtime and took only two days off in the month leading up to her death from heart failure in July 2013.
