Japan hotel fires ‘annoying’ robot staff and replaces them with humans

One hotel in Japan learned the hard way that robots are not always right for the job. Henn na Hotel in Tokyo is laying off half of its nearly 250 robots because they failed to do their automated tasks and humans had to intervene in their operations, the Wall Street Journal via Business Insider reported on Jan. 17. The hotel began employing robots in 2015 with the goal of becoming «the most efficient hotel in the world» and to respond to a worker shortage. Those laid off included Churi, a pink, egg-shaped virtual assistant assigned in each room, who could not keep up with the likes of Siri and Alexa.

일본, 박항서 경계령…“노련한 감독이 이끄는 젊은 베트남”

일본도 박항서 감독의 지도력이 무서운 모양이다. 2019 아랍에미리트(UAE) 아시안컵 8강 베트남과 경기를 앞두고 경계령을 내렸다. 일본은 21일 오후 8시(한국시간) UAE 샤르자의 샤르자스타디움에서 열린 사우디아라비아와의 대회 16강전에서 1-0으로 승리, 아시안컵 8회 연속 8강 진출에 성공했다. 24일 열리는 8강전은 또 하나의 ‘한일전’이다. 박항서 감독이 이끄는 베트남 축구대표팀과 준결승 진출을 놓고 다투기 때문이다. 객관적인 전력은 일본이 우세하다. 국제축구연맹(FIFA) 랭킹에서 일본(50위)이 베트남(100위)에 앞선다. 역대 전적도 일본이 3전 전승으로 압도적이다. 그러나 베트남을 무시할 수 없다는 분위기가 일본에 형성되고 있다. 그 중심에는 박 감독이 있다. 일본 축구전문지 ‘사커 다이제스트’는 22일 “노련한 한국인 감독이 이끄는 젊은 베트남의 기세를 가볍게 볼 수 없다”면서 “베트남의 운명의 열쇠를 쥐고 있는 핵심인물은 바로 박항서 감독과 응우옌 꽝하이(하노이FC)

‘19세 신인의 트리플더블’ 돈치치에 상대도 감탄

미국프로농구(NBA) 댈러스 매버릭스의 ‘신성’ 루카 돈치치(19·슬로베니아)가 데뷔 첫 트리플더블을 작성했다. 돈치치는 22일(한국시간) 미국 위스콘신 주 밀워키의 파이서브포럼에서 열린 2018~2019 NBA 정규리그 밀워키 벅스와의 원정경기에서 18점·11리바운드·10어시스트로 트리플더블을 기록했다. 댈러스는 돈치치의 활약에도 불구하고 106-116으로 밀워키에 패했지만, 돈치치는 NBA역사상 필라델피아 세븐티식서스의 마켈 펄츠(19세317일)에 이어 두 번째로 어린 나이(19세 327일)에 트리플더블을 기록한 선수로 이름을 새겼다. 댈러스 구단 역사상 신인선수가 트리플더블을 기록한 것은 제이슨 키드(1994~1995시즌·은퇴), 데니스 스미스 주니어(2017~2018시즌)에 이어 돈치치가 세 번째다. 돈치치는 이번 트리플더블에 큰 의미를 두지는 않았다. 팀이 패했기 때문이다. 그는 경기 후 인터뷰에서 “트리플더블을 기록했지만, 팀을 승리로 이끌지 못했고 플레이 자체도 좋지 못했다

아시아축구연맹(AFC) 징계윤리위원회가 북한 축구팀에 총 1만3000달러의 벌금을 부과했다. AFC 징계윤리위원회는 20일(현지시간) 조별예선에서의 경고 및 퇴장에 따른 징계 결과를 발표했다. 이에 따르면 북한은 총 1만3000달러를 부과받았다. E조에 속한 북한은 사우디 아라비아, 카타르, 레바논에 3연패를 당했다. 이 기간 1골을 넣고 11점을 내주면서 탈락했다. 경기를 치르면서 경고도 많았는데 벌금으로 이어졌다. 한광성(페루자)은 사우디아라비아와의 1차전에서 경고 2장을 받고 퇴장을 당했는데 이에 따라 5000달러의 벌금을 받았다. 카타르와의 2차전은 더욱 심했다. 북한은 1명이 퇴장 당하는 등 총 6장을 받았다. 정일관(루체른)은 경고누적으로 퇴장당하면서 한광성과 마찬가지로 5000달러의 벌금을 부과 받았다. 카타르전에서는 정일관을 제외하고도 4장의 옐로카드가 더 나왔다. 결국 총 5명이 경고를 받았고 AFC는 북한축구협회에 벌금 3000달러를 부과했다. 한국 선수 중에서는

France, Germany seek closer bond with treaty ahead of Brexit

France and Germany will sign a new friendship treaty on Tuesday, seeking to boost an alliance at the heart of the European Union as Britain bows out and with nationalism rising around the continent. President Emmanuel Macron and Chancellor Angela Merkel will sign the deal, which pledges deeper economic and defence ties as well as commitment to the EU, in the German city of Aachen. The French presidency said it was an «important moment» for showing the relationship was «a bedrock which can relaunch itself ... in the service of reinforcing the European project». Aachen, which sits on the Dutch and Belgian borders, is rich in European symbolism as the seat of power of Charlemagne, the 1st-century emperor who ruled over swathes of western Europe. «We're seeing an existential crisis in terms of European integration, with Brexit and the expected strengthening of nationalists at the next European elections,» said Claire Demesmay, a political scientist at German research institute DGAP. «In this context, confirming this belief in Franco-German cooperation has symbolic value,» she told German public radio. Merkel and Macron will sign the deal on the anniversary of a similar Franco-German cooperation treaty in 1963 by France's Charles de Gaulle and the German chancellor of the time, Konrad Adenauer. The new treaty aims to kickstart the relationship known as the «Franco-German motor», traditionally seen as the key alliance in Europe between two economic and political heavyweights. Macron came into power in May 2017 seeking Merkel's backing for major reforms of the EU in a bid to restore faith in its institutions and quell rising populism. But his ideas met with only lukewarm support from Merkel and other EU leaders, while Paris and Berlin have differed on other issues including how to tax internet giants. In December, EU leaders signed off on a watered-down version of Macron's proposals, including a highly tentative plan to explore a eurozone budget. - Far-right complaints - The treaty commits France and Germany to closer military ties, including possible joint deployments -- in the event of a terror attack, for example. The two countries could also cooperate more closely on procurement, such as the purchase or development of new tanks or fighter jets. And it includes a «mutual defence clause» in the event of one of them being attacked, although they are already committed to this as members of NATO. The closer military ties come after Macron sparked a row with President Donald Trump late last year by urging Europe to reduce its military dependence on the US, even calling for a «real European army». The treaty also paves the way for a joint parliament made up of 50 members of the French national assembly and the same number from the Bundestag, and language-learning initiatives in both countries. But at home, Macron's critics on both the far-left and far-right have seized on the treaty as an erosion of French sovereignty. A wave of false rumours have spread online that Macron is going to Germany to sign away parts of French territory to Merkel. Far-right leader Marine Le Pen accused Macron of seeking to «dismantle the power of our country». - Weakened leaders - Both Macron and Merkel have spoken movingly of the importance of close ties between two countries which share the brutal history of two world wars. But some other European leaders have bristled at the idea of an all-dominating «Franco-German motor». Italy's far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has said ahead of European parliament elections in May that he wants to challenge Merkel and Macron's staunchly pro-European message with a eurosceptic «Italian-Polish axis». Both the French and German leaders have seen easier times, with Germany already looking to a post-Merkel future after she announced she would step down as chancellor in 2021. Macron's grand plans to save Europe have meanwhile had to go on the backburner as he grapples with a wave of anti-government «yellow vest» protests. Both leaders will speak at the signing ceremony at Aachen's historic city hall before taking part in a «citizen debate» with French and German students. © Agence France-Presse

Climate change training session to help representatives from Seychelles at international meetings

Government officials and members of civil society from Seychelles are learning more about climate change in order to be better equipped to negotiate at international meetings following a training session last week. The group took part in the training on Friday aimed at familiarising participants with the basics of climate change diplomacy and building knowledge and skills for more effective negotiation. “The impact of climate change is becoming more apparent in Seychelles.  As a small country, we continuously need support and make our voice heard internationally. For that to happen those dealing with climate change have to be skilled in various areas such as advocacy and negotiation,” said Ronny Jumeau, Seychelles' permanent representative to the United Nations. Jumeau said that an important factor that negotiators need to take into account when they attend international climate change meeting is how to get access to financing. “Now that Seychelles has become a high-income country it is more difficult to get access to finance to support local climate change adaptation projects. Therefore, negotiators need to be skilful and know what they are talking about to lure donors,” he said. Climate change is adversely affecting the economic development of Seychelles, an archipelago in the western Indian Ocean. This is having a direct impact on the livelihoods of the islanders, and getting access to finances is vital to the island nation’s survival. The workshop comes right after a capacity needs assessment recently completed by the Global Climate Change Alliance Plus Initiative (GCCA+) programme in which the need for strengthening the knowledge and skills of Seychellois climate change negotiators was identified. The facilitator of the project, Angelique Pouponneau, said Seychellois negotiators “wanted to know more about climate change diplomacy and how to engage in negotiations surrounding climate change.”   Some of the participants in the workshop had already attended the Conference of the Parties (COP) meetings and those who will be attending the next meeting wanted to be better prepared. Pouponneau added that after taking part in the workshop funded by the European Union, participants “will be equipped with basic skills to engage in negotiations surrounding climate change in international space.” A participant in the workshop, Elissa Lalande, who is the senior policy analyst for climate change, said that the workshop has been very enriching and will prepare her in the “future to represent Seychelles at any international meeting on climate change.”
