1989 “Suddenly West Berlin blazed with neon, fireworks—and emotion,” Newsweek reported on the unforgettable night when the Berlin Wall fell. “A city whose people had been divided for 28 cold-war years,” was now rejoicing. Thousands of West Berliners “clambered over the 10-foot wall and dropped into the arms of those below.” According to one West German radio station, the night was “Christmas, New Year’s and Easter rolled into one.” The event both reunited Germany and symbolized the collapse of the Soviet Union. It was a pivotal moment in the ongoing saga between America and Russia. 1959 “They’re reckless, apathetic, impudent, conformist, immature, and oversexed,” American adults said of teenagers—“a generation blown completely out of control.” Newsweek’s special report surveyed teens across America and found, “the majority of our 15 million teen-agers (13 to…

the hidden yet indispensable strength behind japan’s industrial might

Over the past several decades, the solid reputation of Japanese manufacturing has been cemented by the major companies that represent the nation worldwide. Household names from the electronics and automotives industries, such as Toyota, Honda, Sony and Panasonic, have been the ambassadors of the ‘Made in Japan’ brand and Japanese quality internationally and will continue to be so. But these companies represent just the tip of the iceberg. The true strength of Japanese industrial might lies in the nation’s SMEs, which account for more than 97 percent of all companies, 70% of total employment, and 50% of all added-value manufacturing in Japan. Many of these SMEs are B2B companies that supply parts, components and machinery to larger corporations like those mentioned above, as well as to clients all over the world. Largely…

“The reason our products ensure customer trust is because of our tireless R&D efforts aimed at creating new products to meet the demands of our era”Shuichi Kusaka, President Nippon Chutetsukan KK Located in the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire, natural disaster-prone Japan accounts for around 20% of all earthquakes around the world with a magnitude of 6.0 or more and experiences a tremor every five minutes.
