Criticism of the Fukushima City art installation of “Sun Child” statue wearing radiation protective suit
sankei.com | 2018.8.12 (funky Google Translate)
“Fighting rumor damage of Fukushima nuclear accident”: Amid criticism of the statue installed near JR Fukushima Station, a public apology was issued on the 12th.
Created by the artist, Kenji Yanobe, the “Sun Child” statue is about 6.2 meters high and depicts a child with its protective helmet removed and a chest-mounted radiation dosimeter indicating “000.”
At the statue’s unveiling ceremony held on May 3, Mayor Hiroshi Kibata said, “Contemporary art is abstractly expressed unlike science” and asked for understanding…blah, blah, blah…
More (in Japanese)…
In a way the criticism of the statue by people of Fukushima City is understandable since the level of background radiation in Fukushima City and most Fukushima prefecture is the same as anywhere else in Japan.

Yes, today is TAXI DAY.
Way, way back on August 5, 1919, Japan’s first taxis started operation in Tokyo. The taxi company, Jidosha Kabushikigaisha began with six cars operating from where Yurakucho Mullion is located in present-day Ginza in downtown Tokyo.

That’s cold: Japan tech blasts snoozing workers with AC
phys.org / AFP | July 26, 2018
Japanese office workers hoping to nod off on the job may need to sleep with one eye open thanks to a new system that can detect snoozers and blast them with cold air.
Air conditioning manufacturer Daikin and electronics giant NEC said Thursday they have begun trialling the system, which monitors the movement of the employee’s eyelids with a camera attached to a computer.
All I can say is, "fcuking good luck with that."
When I worked at Hitachi, a good 20 percent of the workforce was sound asleep at their desks after lunch 1:45pm.
And, I would gladly pretend to sleep to set the office’s air conditioner thermostat lower 28°C (82°F), which the tech guideline the government has set for torturing employees.
