Japan's famously diligent workers spend more hours at the office than employees in almost any other country. The government has a message: Stay home. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend Olympic and Paralympic events in Tokyo during the 2020 Games, putting additional pressure on the city's already crowded transportation system. Officials also hope that promoting working from home during the Games will encourage a more easy-going approach in a country known for its cases of death from overwork.
On July 22, one year before the Games, Tokyo rolled out a month-long Telework Days campaign, with government offices and private businesses devoted to avoiding peak traffic hours. The government has been persuading employers to be more flexible (灵活的), hoping to help parents and others caring for elderly relatives to better balance their work and home responsibilities. Officials hope the campaign will show firms that employees can actually "work even more effectively" when they stay home.
Such as worries over the safety of sensitive information, the difficulty of controlling working conditions and the fact that business culture attaches importance to face-to-face communication.
Experts and government officials hope that Olympic efforts to develop telework might serve as something of a legacy for the Games. "Tokyo 2020 is a chance to actively introduce telework, which can create a stress-free lifestyle," said Azuma Taguchi, a professor of engineering at Chuo University. And he also advised strongly to take serious measures to deal with Olympic traffic.
"This is a chance to make telework a legacy of the Games that will take root" in Japanese society, Industry Minister Hiroshige Seko said in a recent forum to promote flexible work And some officials are hoping that a more open-minded approach to work could encourage people to take.

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China (PRC), President Xi Jinping signed a presidential decree (主席令) on Sept 17 to award 42 individuals the Medal of the Republic, the Friendship Medal and various honorary titles, China Daily reported. The people who received medals have all made outstanding contributions to the nation's construction and development.
The 89-year-old Shen Jilan is one of the eight people who were awarded the Medal of the Republic. She is the only deputy (代表) in China to serve at all 13 National People's Congresses (人民代表大会) since 1954. She witnessed the development of the People's Congress system. She has been engaged in making and revising national laws most of her life. It was she who proposed the clause on "equal pay for equal work" between men and women, which was written into the first Constitution of PRC in 1954.
China's development can't continue without lawmakers, nor can it move forward without scientists.
Ye Peijian, who received the honorary title "the people's scientist", has been devoted to China's lunar program for two decades. Known as "the Father of Chang'e Probes", his team of aerospace engineers put lunar landers on the moon. On Jan 3 of this year, the Chang'e 4 probe touched down on the moon's far side, marking the program's latest achievement.
"The space program is about 40 years late with the US, but we have used Chinese technology in our program," Ye told GBTimes when asked about the lunar exploration program.
Also receiving awards are six foreign friends who have lent their hands to assist with China's prosperity. Raul Castro Ruz, former Cuban president, was awarded a Friendship Medal.
This honor recognizes "the revolutionary work of his life and his contribution to strengthening relations between Cuba and China," said Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez, president of the Council of State and Council of Ministers of Cuba, on social media.
Almost every country in the world has official honors reserved for distinguished people. For example, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian honor given in the United States. "It recognizes people who have made an especially praise-worthy contribution to world peace, cultural or other significant public endeavors."

Do a country's people get happier as it gets richer? Most governments seem to believe so, given their continuous focus on increasing GDP year by year. Reliable, long-term evidence linking wealth and happiness is, however, lacking. And measuring well-being is itself filled with problems, since it often relies on surveys that ask participants to assess their own levels of happiness subjectively.
Daniel Sgroi of the University of Warwick and Eugenio Proto of the University of Glasgow, both in Britain, think, nevertheless, that they have an answer.
By examining millions of books and newspaper articles published since 1820 in four countries (America, Britain, Germany and Italy), they have developed what they hope is an objective measure of each place's historical happiness. And their answer is that wealth does bring happiness, but some other things bring more of it.
In Britain, for example, happiness fell sharply during the two world wars. It began to rise again after 1945, peaked in 1950, and then fell gradually, including through the so-called Swinging Sixties, until it reached a nadir around 1980.
America's national happiness, too, fell during the world wars. It also fell in the 1860s, during and after the country's civil war. The lowest point of all came in 1975, at the end of a long decline during the Vietnam war, with the fall of Saigon and America's humiliating defeat.
Overall, then, Dr Sgroi and Dr Proto found that happiness does vary with GDP. But the effect of health and life expectancy is larger, even when the tendency of wealth to improve health is taken into account.
A one — year increase in longevity, for example, has the same effect on national happiness as a 4.3% increase in GDP. And, as the grand historical sweep suggests, it is warfare that causes the biggest drops in happiness.
On average it takes a 30% increase in GDP to raise happiness by the amount that a year of war causes it to fall. The upshot appears to be that, while increasing national income is important to happiness, it is not as important as ensuring the population is healthy and avoiding conflict.(1)、According to the passage, why do most governments continuously focus on increasing GDP year by year?A、To increase its people's wealth. B、To strengthen its people's health. C、To improve its people's happiness. D、To improve its overall national strength.(2)、What do Daniel and Eugenio probably agree?A、Warfare has no effect on happiness. B、Happiness has nothing to do with GDP. C、GDP is the most important factor in improving people's happiness. D、Health and life expectancy bring more happiness than GDP does.(3)、From the passage we can know that ________.A、Happiness rose to the top in Britain around 1980. B、America's national happiness fell to the bottom in 1975. C、A one — year increase in longevity has the same effect as GDP on happiness. D、The fall of happiness caused by war takes a 30% increase in GDP to raise.(4)、What's the best title for the text?A、What on earth can bring people's happiness? B、Why wealth can't bring people's happiness? C、What effect can war have on people's happiness? D、Why health can bring happiness to people?
A couple in their 60s has travelled 12,000 miles across 16 countries from Britain to China — riding their bikes the entire way.
