No words.
 
Four years after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the small community of Nagadoro, located within the disaster zone, looks set to disappear for good. At first several residents planned to return, but as the years have passed, that looks increasingly unlikely.

Sociologist Tom Gill suggests that other Fukushima communities may follow the same pattern, in which case the money spent on expensive decontamination projects will go to waste.
Slowly Eroded Hopes It was a conversation with Takahashi Masato that finally convinced me that Nagadoro was finished. I

The metal that brought you cheap flights
安い海外旅行をもたらした金属
By Laurence Knight
BBC News

It made the age of cheap foreign holidays possible, and for years it was what made margarine spreadable. Nickel may not be the flashiest metal but modern life would be very different without it.
海外での安い休日を可能にし,マーガリンを伸ばし易くするために使われてた。ニッケルは派手さは無いが現代の生活には欠かせないのです。

Air travel is affordable partly because jet engines are efficient - and for that the world must thank a cheap dull metal that helps makes some superalloys.

The explosive force of  neodymium magnets
Neodymium magnet is a permanent magnet made from an alloy of neodymium, iron and boron to form the Nd2Fe14B tetragonal crystalline structure. 

Developed in 1982 by General Motors and Sumitomo Special Metals, neodymium magnets are the strongest type of permanent magnet commercially available.  They have replaced other types of magnet in the many applications in modern products that require strong permanent magnets, such as motors in cordless tools, hard disk drives and magnetic fasteners.

From smart watches to self-driving cars–hardware startups are on the rise across existing and new categories. Falling prices and advancements in computing, sensors, batteries and connectivity have ushered a wave of “sentient” objects. These connected devices largely rely on the computing power of smartphones or the cloud. Differentiating and maintaining a competitive advantage is harder than ever as components are getting commoditized and product...
