The powerful typhoon Jebi and the big earthquake in Hokkaido cause the power cut.

9月8日プラクティス

Dear Kyoto ESS members

This is the announcement of the practice on Sept 8 2018.

Genre: presentation & discussion
Title: Present your opinions and discuss about the articles from the Japan Times.
Description

Step1: Separate into several groups. Each group consists of 3 to 5 members.

Step2: I distribute papers containing the articles extracting from the Japan Times.

The articles cover five controversial issues. Please choose three topics out of five and
   decide the order to discuss as a group.

Step3: If your group decides the topic to discuss first, read the article concerning the topic
   ( 5 to 7 minutes).

Step4: Each member presents your opinion concerning with the article in the group
   (1 to 2 minutes).

Step5: Exchange the opinions in a group concerning with the article (10 to 15 minutes).

Step6: Follow the same order above concerning with other two topics your group chose.

The topics on the practice are as follows:

1 . The number of foreign tourists is boosting for recent several years. The foreign tourism has vast impact on Japanese economy. On the other hand, the serious problem has emerged something the media has calling “kanko kogai” “tourism pollution.”

2. Development of AI (artificial intelligence) is tremendous. It is predicted AI will totally
change our life from medical field to driving vehicles autonomously.

On the other hands, it is predicted that 50 percent of white-collar jobs will be replaced by the computers.

3. Tokyo Medical University deducted points from the entrance exam score of all female
applicants to keep the ratio of female students at the university at about 30 percent.
The unfairness against female applicants lies on avoiding a shortage of doctors at affiliated hospitals.
The medical college believed female doctors often resign or take long leave after getting married or getting pregnant.

4. Prime Minister Abe characterizes integrated resorts (IR) as key to his growth strategy. IR refers to casino resorts
Abe administration expects IR will be a key component to bring in more wealthy travelers to Japan and help boot economy
On the other hand, promotion of official casinos would encourage to make worse the problem of gambling addiction.

5. One of the news to move people around Japan is the discovery of a 2 year old boy who had been missing for three days in Yamaguchi Prefecture.
The volunteer Haruo Obata, 78, found the boy only in 30 minutes despite a search effort involving 380 police officers and rescuers as well as drones within thermal imaging cameras. Since media covered this news every day,
Mr. Obata becomes national hero and volunteerism has come into limelight

Thank you very much. I hope you enjoy the practice.

Seiichiro Iwai.
