Terrie's Take: Social Capital & Poverty in Japan, Ig Nobel, Moody Biz, Reward the Healthy, and More!
Terrie’s Take is a selection of Japan-centric news collected and collated by long-time resident and media business professional Terrie Lloyd. AkihabaraNews is pleased to present Terrie’s learned perspective; we all could use another take on the news - here’s Terrie’s:
At Keio University, the Sugiura Laboratory, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (Faculty of Science and Technology) is investigating various phenomena through analysis and experiment. These phenomena involve coupling between electromagnetics and mechanical dynamics, as well as nonlinear dynamics. Currently, the researchers are focusing on three topics. The first is nonlinear oscillations in superconductive magnetic suspension systems. In such systems, objects are levitated, so energy loss due to friction is very low.
JVC Kenwood is going to release new earphones model HA-FX19 in early October.
The accompanying cord holder is interesting. It has a suction disk so that you can attach it to the back of a smartphone or music player to allow you to carry it around easier and protect the cord from getting tangled in your bag.
HA-FX19 has a 9mm neodymium driver unit and 3 different sizes of silicon ear pieces come with it.
