"Hubert Robert "

Category : World News

At the age of 21, painter Hubert Robert (1733-1808) left France for Italy, where he spent 11 years working as an artist. He became well known for landscapes that mixed real architecture with the imaginary, and he often brought together unrelated historical structures, such as ancient Greek ruins with Italian Renaissance buildings.
Hubert had returned to France and was a member of the French Royal Academy when the French Revolution broke out (1789-1799). During that time of upheaval, he continued painting, producing numerous works depicting war-ravaged Paris.

High road to a proper lunch

Category : World News

Regarding the March 20 Kyodo article “Cafeterias at government offices serve up buffet of corporate culture”: When the Tokyo Metropolitan Government moved to Shinjuku from Marunouchi in 1991, a lot of public servants became “lunchtime refugees”, meaning that there were not enough places in the Shinjuku area to serve lunch to all the people who had recently moved there.
Officials in charge of general affairs and welfare suffered so much from this problem that they arranged for additional facilities that reinforced the lunch-serving capacity in the new buildings. Allowing outsiders to use these restaurants was one way of strengthening their serving capacity and financial situation.

Disturbing trend in gang violence

Category : World News

Underworld organizations are stepping up their attacks on enterprises in the wake of efforts by prefectural governments to enforce bylaws that prevent businesses from distributing profits to gangsters and keep gangsters from participating in public works projects. These bylaws are also making it more difficult for gangs to collect protection fees from enterprises.
In the past, gangsters threatened businesses mainly by firing bullets at their buildings. Following the enforcement of the anti-gang bylaws, company presidents and executives themselves are being targeted. The crimes are premeditated, with few clues, if any, left in most cases. It appears that underworld organizations are trying to shift the status quo back in their favor.
