Japan is facing a ‘death by overwork’ problem — here’s how companies are combatting it

In Japan, it’s so common for employees to work themselves to death that there’s a word for it: Karoshi.
After a 24-year-old employee of Japan’s largest advertising firm killed herself in 2015, the government and major corporations have started instituting work-life balance policies.
Some policies are zany, like forcing employees who work late to wear purple “embarrassment capes,” and flying drones around the office that play music when it’s time to leave.
In Japan, corporate life is so intense there’s actually a word to refer to people dying from overworking: Karoshi, which literally translates to “death by overwork.”

In 2013, 31-year-old journalist Miwa Sado logged 159 hours of overtime in one month at the news network NHK, before dying of heart failure in July 2013. And in 2015, a 24-year-old employee of Japanese advertising behemoth Dentsu jumped to her death off a balcony in a company dorm room — where she lived — after working more than 100 hours in the month leading up to her suicide, USA Today reports.

This intense culture is a product of Japan’s postwar era, where, in an effort to get the country’s economic engines running, Prime Minister Shigeru Yoshida enlisted major corporations to offer their employees lifelong job security, asking only that workers repay them with loyalty.

Employees who spent longer on the job were rewarded for decades until employees started suffering from health effects, and in rare cases, dying.

According to Nippon, a Japanese news agency, corporations try to circumvent the restrictions the Japanese government has placed on working hours in recent years by encouraging employees to falsify how much overtime they worked.

A 2016 report examining karoshi cases and their cause of death found that more than 20% of people in a survey of 10,000 Japanese workers said they worked at least 80 hours of overtime a month.

While major corporations are forced to pay out (small) fines when their employees’ deaths are ruled as karoshi, there’s a wider movement in the country to attack the root of the issue: An oppressive and overbearing work culture.

First, employees are pressured by management, and their colleagues, to regularly put in work “off the clock,” — that is, work they don’t report as part of their overtime hours, lest they fall behind their targets. And second, through an arcane portion of the Labor Standards Act, companies are free to negotiate directly with employees for working more than eight hours a day.

But some companies, including one Tokyo-based IT firm, are turning to novel strategies to combat overwork. The firm forces employees to wear purple “embarrassment capes” if they worked late on the third Wednesday every month, according to NBC.

The tactic reduced the amount of overtime employees worked in half, Yoshie Komuro, the head of Work-Life Balance, a firm that helps companies reduce overtime work, told NBC.

Another zany solution some Japanese companies have implemented seem straight out of a sci-fi movie. Three companies told NBC they were developing a drone to fly around their offices and play music to any lingering employees at night, in an effort to get them out of the office.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe promised in 2017 to institute work-life balance reforms, including capping the number of overtime hours employees can work and paying part-time workers better, reports Reuters.

Employees are still skeptical.

“My company says it’s promoting work reform, but I am doing as much overtime as before. I even work on Saturdays,” a bank employee told Reuters.

After all, this is a place where ad firm Dentsu only had to pay the equivalent to a $5,000 fine after an employee killed herself from overwork.

Friend or foe? Facebook’s Zuckerberg says sorry in full-page newspaper ads – CNN

Facebook’s Zuckerberg says sorry in full-page newspaper ads
Sheena McKenzie, CNN

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took out full-page ads in several British and Americannewspapers Sunday to apologize for a “breach of trust” in the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

“You may have heard about a quiz app built by a university researcher that leaked Facebook data of millions of people in 2014,” said the ads signed by Zuckerberg, referring to the political consultancy company accused of manipulating Facebook data during the 2016 US election.
“This was a breach of trust, and I’m sorry we didn’t do more at the time. We’re now taking steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again,” read the ads appearing in the UK’s The Observer, The Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, Sunday Mirror, Sunday Express and Sunday Telegraph, along with American newspapers The New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal.
The ads, featuring black text on a white background with the Facebook logo, said the social media company was now “limiting the data apps get” when users sign in, and was also “investigating every single app that had access to large amounts of data before” it fixed the problem.
According to the ad, Facebook will be reminding users which apps they’d previously given access to, giving them the opportunity to “shut off the ones you don’t want anymore.”
“I promise to do better for you,” said Zuckerberg, who has come under harsh criticism for the scandal which sent the company’s value plunging by almost $50 billion last week.
What is Cambridge Analytica accused of?
The ads come as Facebook announced last week it was suspending Cambridge Analytica’s account over concerns the firm violated the social media site’s policies. It followed reports from The New York Times and UK’s The Observer newspaper (the Sunday edition of The Guardian) that Cambridge Analytica allegedly harvested the personal information of more than 50 million users.
Now Cambridge Analytica, which worked for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, is being accused of using that data in strategies for the US 2016 election.
Cambridge Analytica has repeatedly denied that the firm used any of Facebook’s data in the work it did for Trump’s campaign. The company also said it deleted the data when Facebook alerted them in 2015 that it had been improperly shared.
Facebook said the data in question was properly gathered a few years ago by psychology professor Aleksandr Kogan, who said he was using it for academic purposes.
But then the information was later transferred to third parties, including Cambridge Analytica. The transfer violated Facebook policies.
What is the fallout?
Scrutiny of Cambridge Analytica is growing as top officials from the firm claimed credit for President Donald Trump’s stunning 2016 victory.
Last week, the embattled analytics company suspended its CEO, Alexander Nix, in the wake of a UK Channel 4 report showingundercover footage of Nix claiming he met Trump “many times” and that the company was responsible for a wide swath of the Trump campaign’s activity.
On Friday, the company’s offices in London were searched by enforcement officers from the United Kingdom’s Information Commissioner’s Office, following reports the organization had been harvesting data.
What’s Steve Bannon got to do with it?
Cambridge Analytica was the creation of conservative billionaire Robert Mercer and conservative activist Steve Bannon, who later helped run the Trump campaign and served as chief strategist in the White House.
According to The Guardian, Bannon said at a conference Thursday that he “didn’t even know about the Facebook mining.”
Is there a Brexit connection?
On Sunday, the controversy surrounding Cambridge Analytica began to engulf to Britain’s 2016 Brexit referendum.
Brexit campaigner Shahmir Sanni told Channel 4 that the British referendum’s “Vote Leave” campaign spent over its legal limit by using the Canadian data firm called Aggregate IQ — adding that the company had links to Cambridge Analytica.
British election law enforces a spending cap on donations, however Sanni claims a donation of £625,000 ($883,000) by Vote Leave to another Brexit group, “BeLeave,” was funneled to AIQ.
Channel 4 says it has seen documents that it claims show multiple ties between AIQ and Cambridge Analytica’s parent company, SCL.
However, attorneys for AIQ have distanced themselves from Cambridge Analytica, saying in a statement to Channel 4, “AggregateIQ has never entered into a contract with Cambridge Analytica.”
An attorney for Vote Leave also told Channel 4 that the campaign had “twice been cleared on this matter by the Electoral Commission,” but acknowledged the network’s report presented new allegations and said it would investigate.

Crimes against humanity: Facebook has been collecting call history and SMS data from Android devices

Facebook has been collecting call history and SMS data from Android devices
iOS devices appear to be unaffected
By Tom Warren on March 25, 2018 8:00 am

Facebook has been collecting call records and SMS data from Android devices for years. Several Twitter users have reported finding months or years of call history data in their downloadable Facebook data file. A number of Facebook users have been spooked by the recent Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal, prompting them to download all the data that Facebook stores on their account. The results have been alarming for some.

“Oh wow my deleted Facebook Zip file contains info on every single phone cellphone call and text I made for about a year,” says ‏Twitter user Mat Johnson. Another, Dylan McKay, says “somehow it has my entire call history with my partner’s mum.” Others have found a similar pattern where it appears close contacts, like family members, are the only ones tracked in Facebook’s call records.

Ars Technica reports that Facebook has been requesting access to contacts, SMS data, and call history on Android devices to improve its friend recommendation algorithm and distinguish between business contacts and your true personal friendships. Facebook appears to be gathering this data through its Messenger application, which often prompts Android users to take over as the default SMS client. Facebook has, at least recently, been offering an opt-in prompt that prods users with a big blue button to “continuously upload” contact data, including call and text history. It’s not clear when this prompt started appearing in relation to the historical data gathering, and whether it has simply been opt-in the whole time. Either way, it’s clearly alarmed some who have found call history data stored on Facebook’s servers.

Facebook’s contacts upload warning
FACEBOOK HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO COLLECT THIS DATA ON IPHONES THANKS TO APPLE’S PRIVACY CONTROLS
While the recent prompts make it clear, Ars Technica points out the troubling aspect that Facebook has been doing this for years, during a time when Android permissions were a lot less strict. Google changed Android permissions to make them more clear and granular, but developers could bypass this and continue accessing call and SMS data until Google deprecated the old Android API in October. It’s not yet clear if these prompts have been in place in the past.

Facebook has responded to the findings, but the company appears to suggest it’s normal for apps to access your phone call history when you upload contacts to social apps. “The most important part of apps and services that help you make connections is to make it easy to find the people you want to connect with,” says a Facebook spokesperson, in response to a query from Ars Technica. “So, the first time you sign in on your phone to a messaging or social app, it’s a widely used practice to begin by uploading your phone contacts.”

The same call record and SMS data collection has not yet been discovered on iOS devices. While Apple does allow some specialist apps to access this data in limited ways like blocking spam calls or texts, these apps have to be specifically enabled through a process that’s similar to enabling third-party keyboards. The majority of iOS apps cannot access call history or SMS messages, and Facebook’s iOS app is not able to capture this data on an iPhone.

Facebook may need to answer some additional questions on this data collection, especially around when it started and whether Android users truly understood what data they were allowing Facebook to collect when they agreed to enable phone and SMS access in an Android permissions dialogue box or Facebook’s own prompt.

The data collection revelations come in the same week Facebook has been dealing with the fall out from Cambridge Analytica obtaining personal information from up to 50 million Facebook users. Facebook has altered its privacy controls in recent years to prevent such an event occurring again, but the company is facing a backlash of criticism over the inadequate privacy controls that allowed this to happen. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also been summoned to explain how data was taken without users’ consent to a UK Parliamentary committee.

Update, 11:30AM ET: Article updated to provide more information on the opt-in dialogue box.

Shame on any developer for doing this. And shame on Google for designing Android in such a way to allow this to happen. Or maybe people just forgot about it.
To further clarify, did this stop becoming a problem last October?
By ddjeff on 03.25.18 8:36am
We first identified these issues within Android several years ago and asked Apple to take a different approach. This was also shared with LinkedIN execs.
First, tighten the software down to a point where Apple believes it’s secure.
First, don’t cooperate with FBI or law enforcement. (Tim Cook gave testimony.)
Offer a small reward for vulnerability disclosure.
Let the hacker community disclose found vulnerabilities.
Most of this started in the iPhone 4S timeframe, but when Steve Jobs died, it took about a year to re-disclose all this information and convince Tim Cook to go through with it. He had terrible bedside manner at the beginning of all of it.

One the other hand, Google can’t fix this completely with its update because most of Android phones have an older version of Android and can’t be upgraded to newer version. Facebook needs to address this clearly. If Facebook can get their hands on our SMS data or call history this easily, a normal person can somehow obtain this by developing some similar app. Android users need to be aware of this.
By DanielDang on 03.25.18 8:11am
If you accepted to upload your contacts, is this really that surprising?(honest question)
I personally always skipped that option when setting up Messenger.
By Tswfootball on 03.25.18 8:14am
I think people have been ignorant for far too long about what and how much data is collected by ‘free’ apps. While Facebook may be taking the heat on this, there are a lot more out there doing the same. I just hope that from all this, people start to take their privacy more seriously.
By scooby359 on 03.25.18 8:27am
People are far too willing to hand over their data, and then they act all surprised when companies actually collect it and use it. Most don’t even read the permissions, let alone understand what they entail.
By mattcoz on 03.25.18 9:45am
Why are you blaming the victims? If a restaurant says “security cameras installed throughout” what you don’t expect is that when you have to take a piss a camera is going to be pointing at you in the stall.
That’s why there are laws and regulations in place regarding cameras in bathrooms. That’s why laws and regulations need to be placed on many aspects of the internet. This free will to do as one pleases because nothing is there to stop/punish you is only going to lead to worse and worse cases of misuse & abuse.
If a massive company like Facebook sees no issue in mining your private messages for their benefit, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
By Black Dude on 03.25.18 9:52am
Amen.
By JDNick on 03.25.18 10:45am
Ah just because someone accepts to upload their contacts doesn’t mean they fully understands all the privacy implications, of all the different apps that request it. I’m a more informed user and even I didn’t know how much Facebooks was getting from Android phones. What about the millions of unsespecting users?
By Slyone on 03.25.18 10:24am
Uploading contacts is one issue. This is also about sucking up call logs and sms due to lack of privacy controls especially in older Android versions.

Wait, people actually didn’t know this? As soon as I installed Messenger on any of my Android phones it immediately asked to become my default phone/text app and I simply said no. If people actually consented to that “feature” then idk what they expected

Just because FB Messanger is your default SMS app doesn’t give them the right to view all your non FB Messanger text.

If FB Messenger is the app receiving and sending SMS on your phone, you no longer have non-FBMessenger texts.
Of course, they can’t see what you’re doing on other instant messaging apps, but they can definitely see all SMS and MMS messages.
By Dolan Duk on 03.25.18 9:44am
That’s exactly what it means. The default SMS app receives all your texts.
By mattcoz on 03.25.18 9:47am
FB Messenger was collecting this info even when Messenger was not set to be the default phone or messaging handler.
By vmarks on 03.25.18 8:57am
Is there actual undisputable proof of that. It could be easily tested by creating a new acount, installing the app(s) on the phone, sending some sms, and then exporting the account’s data. But, you know, actual journalism is not a staple of the verge.
By LauRoman on 03.25.18 9:10am
And fyi, any app that syncs sms and calls across devices will collect them.
By LauRoman on 03.25.18 9:14am
I realize it’s not really a defense, but most people don’t read the prompts when installing apps, especially those from large, well known, trusted companies, that all their friends have. Which leads to this kind of situation. Some may have a second or so of hesitation, but give in, in the same way that you give your car keys to a valet to leave with your car when going to a high end restaurant. Most people also don’t want to try to see if the app will work without the permission. “If they as for it, then they need it, and if I click no, then it won’t work, and I won’t be able to talk to my friends”.
By hboisvert on 03.25.18 8:32am
Facebook is unfolding just like big tobacco and cigarettes.
For several years now there have been articles and studies popping up. Bad for self esteem., Bad for socialization. Bad for creating jealousy and making people like life less. Bad for shaming, and cyber bullying. Prospects of leading into crime, stalking, and revenge.
Now, just the latest, Facebook is selling you out. Collecting everything, and turning it over to the highest bidder. Does anybody really think Cambridge is the ONLY company who ever purchased this information? Or are they just the one that got caught.
Like cigarettes, its users are it’s staunches defenders. While some are leaving the game early, recognizing the unhealthy potential, others are, and will hang in there for decades.
Like cigarettes, it’s crack-like addictive qualities ensure many won’t, or can’t leave.
Like cigarettes, when the majority of Americans leave it behind, the company will get even bigger overseas. Do you really think the cigarette companies have died out?
Like cigarettes. the Surgeon should be pasting warnings on the site, on all posts, and even advertising the adverse effects. Eventually something like that might happen, but how many will get hurt in the ensuing decades?

A man has died after being assaulted on board a bus in south London.

Julian Joseph, 36, was attacked by two men on a route 53 bus in New Cross almost two weeks ago.

He was taken to hospital with a “severe head injury” but died on Saturday afternoon, police said.

Murder squad detectives are investigating the incident in New Cross Road, near the junction with Alpha Road, just after midnight on March 13.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said Mr Joseph’s next of kin were aware, adding: “A 32-year-old male was charged on Friday, 16 March in connection with this incident and remains in custody.”

It comes amid an horrific spell of violent crime in London.

Police said one girl was badly injured after the car mounted a pavement Rex
A teenage girl has been left with serious injuries after a man deliberately drove his car into a group of children, police said.

Five youths between the ages of 12 and 14 were mown down by a Vauxhall Astra at around 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon as they stood on a pavement in the Castlemilk area of Glasgow.

Police said the male driver of the vehicle and his passenger failed to stop following the incident, which is now being treated as an attempted murder.

A 14-year-old girl injured in the hit-and-run attack was later taken to Hairmyres Hospital, where doctors said she remains in serious but stable condition.
