1, The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare Report
The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare in Japan made an announcement last week about pension. So far, the government pays 1/3 of pension but need to raise ½, otherwise this pension system cannot pay in the year of 2020. Japanese population is decreasing but old people live longer ever and their proportion is increasing. That means worker’s burden is increasing more and more. Basically, worker’s payment support retired people pension.
2, Need money? Sell your hair.
Have you seen hairtader.com? I think you know auto trader.com. You can place your ad and sell hair on this site. Popular hairs are virgin hair. What is virgin hair? It is not colored, permanent. It is just natural hair. The price range is around $150~$200. If you have a long and nice virgin hair, try it.
3, Shark attack victim is decreasing.
Only 59 people were attacked by sharks lat year. This number is same as 2003 and very low. The reason is very simple because of bad economy and people don’t go to the beach.
71 people were attacked in 2007.
4, Sleeping is good prevention for diabetes.
This is from University of Chicago research.
They collected 9 people between 20-31 years old and tested 5 nights. They go to bed at 11pm and wake up at 7:30am. The first 2 nights were no sleep deprivation. And other 3 nights, they made noise with speakers for Obstruction of deep sleep. Their deep sleep time were decreased 90% actually. This is same as older people sleeping habit. Older people have only 20 minutes of deep sleep, and your people have 80-100 minutes every night. After research, they checked their bodies and got something. Less sleep lead gaining of weight. Gaining weight mean a bad sign of diabetes.
