Korean girls told to have babies
I remember learning in middle school that S.Korea was an 'aging society' and will become an 'aged' one after a few decades unless birthrate goes up. I still distinctly remember bc the teacher went on saying female bodies are 'sacred' bearing serious responsibility of childbirth.

http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20180911000814

Other teachers at the school are also being accused of making sexist comments like “girls should be giving birth to as many children as possible for the good of the country.”

Sony vows to use 100 percent renewable electricity by 2040
Sony vows to use 100 percent renewable electricity by 2040 https://ift.tt/2NBn49g Prospective https://ift.tt/2NBowYY September 11, 2018 at 03:27PM

Akio Kon/Bloomberg

Sony is the latest tech giant pledging to power its worldwide operations with 100 percent renewable energy. All of its 111 global business sites -- which produce everything from games consoles and semiconductors to Hollywood blockbusters -- will go green by 2040, says the company. Of course, that deadline is decades away, so in the interim it plans to reach at least 30 percent by 2030.

The move sees Sony joining Facebook, Google and Microsoft (along with 140 other businesses) in the RE100 club: a collaborative initiative of companies committed to 100 percent renewable energy use by 2050.

And boy does Sony need this: the Japanese titan was stuck at just 5 percent green energy in fiscal 2017 and flunked Greenpeace's tech report card with a woeful D-rating the same year. It's also previously been called out by Amnesty International for buying rare earth materials like cobalt from mines that employ child labour.

But this commitment is a step in the right direction. To achieve its goals, Sony is promising to accelerate its use of renewable energy here in the US and China, and to push for the installation of solar panels at manufacturing sites in Thailand and Japan. Sony's so-called "Road to Zero" plan does have a bright spot, however, in the form of its 100 percent green European operations.

The company is already transparent about its energy usage and RE100's deadlines should push it to (eventually) catch up with its rivals, among who both Apple and Google are already offsetting operational power consumption with wind and solar energy. Meanwhile, Facebook has set itself a more ambitious green target of 2021.

"By joining RE100, we hope to contribute to the expanded usage of renewable energy not only within Sony but by the industry at large," said Kenichiro Yoshida, President and CEO, Sony Corporation.

Nearly half of all US homes could have a smart speaker this year, Adobe says - The Verge
Nearly half of all US homes could have a smart speaker this year, Adobe says https://ift.tt/2oX1pKv Prospective https://ift.tt/2MjPEau September 11, 2018 at 03:25PM

It’s no secret that smart speakers are the hottest new category of gadgets, and Adobe says they’re on track to continue seeing rapid growth. In a poll of US consumers, Adobe Analytics found that nearly half could own one by the end of the year if current buying plans actually pan out.

The poll found that 32 percent of consumers currently report owning a smart speaker. That’s up from 28 percent in December — a jump that Adobe sees as remarkable since most smart speakers are sold around the holidays.

Speakers are getting used more, too

That seems to suggest an even larger jump in stores for later this year. And while Adobe doesn’t estimate the increase specifically, it did find that enough people said they planned on buying a smart speaker later this year that ownership should jump up to cover 48 percent of US consumers.

Even if all those people don’t follow through, the buying trends still speak to the category’s quick growth. Adobe found that people are using their speakers more, too. Smart speaker owners report their usage of voice assistants is up 76 percent year over year, and 71 percent of owners now say they use their speaker at least once a day.
