Marina Bay [A1.ランニング]


  My running home course is the road alongside of Singapore river through Robertson and Clark quay which is five km distance. I usually do two round to make it ten km.

  Recently I found this route has connected towards Marina Bay. My home course expand there and become ten km distance as one round. The route alongside Marina Bay is quite nice and modern. I enjoy the urban running life.

Lo-hei [D1.シンガポール]


  We had annual Div chinese new year party and celebrated taking Lo-hei.

  According to wikipedia, Yusheng, yee sang or yuu sahng (Chinese: 鱼生; pinyin: yúshēng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: hî-seⁿ or hû-siⁿ), or Prosperity Toss, also known as lo hei (Cantonese for 撈起 or 捞起) is a Teochew-style raw fish salad. It usually consists of strips of raw fish (most commonly salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. Yusheng literally means "raw fish" but since "fish (鱼)" is commonly conflated with its homophone "abundance (余)", Yúshēng (鱼生) is interpreted as a homophone for Yúshēng (余升) meaning an increase in abundance. Therefore, yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.

While versions of it are thought to have existed in China, the contemporary version is created and popularised in the 1960s amongst the ethnic Chinese community and its consumption has been associated with Chinese New Year festivities in Singapore as well as in neighbouring Malaysia. In Singapore, government, community and business leaders often take the lead in serving the dish as part of official functions during the festive period or in private celebrity dinners.

 After the dinner, KARAOKE started...

Chinese New Year [D1.シンガポール]


  恭喜发财!(Gōngxǐ fācái!) I wish You Great Prosperity!
Happy New Year of the Dragon!
This morning, we were all happily entertained by the brightly colored lions which bowed and danced in our office to the crashing of the cymbals and the beating of the drums. In fact, it was my first up close and personal experience with the Chinese lion dance and I certainly found it very interesting.

あるレジ打ちの女性/ A story about a cashier [人事4-キャリアプラン]


  Face book で知人から紹介してもらった話です。ちょっとウルッときましたね。Three Stone Cutterのような話です。

This is a story about a lady who always gives up easily when faced with challenge.

When she was studying in university, she would frequently change her extra curriculum activities as she was unable to persistently pursue any particular interest. Upon graduation from university, she began to look for a job. She started off by working for a manufacturing company but called it a quit within three months as she had some conflicts with her boss. Subsequently, she joined a logistics company but quit again within half a year as the job scope was simply too different from her expectation. She soon moved on to an administrative job in a medical company. But she again claimed, “This is not what I wanted…” and quit from the company. As a result of her job hopping, she had a long list of past employers on her resume and so no company was willing to offer her a full time job.    However, she knew that her job search had to continue as she needed to make a living. Although her parents were ready to welcome her back to their hometown, she stubbornly declined as she did not want to be seen as a failure. She decided to register with a recruitment agency and they did find her some jobs. However, she continued to have conflicts with colleagues and soon quit her job whenever she couldn’t put up with it. As a consequence, the list of past employers in her resume became even longer.  One day, the recruitment agency called her up again to offer her another new job as a cashier at a supermarket.  At that time, product bar code was not yet in existence. A cashier had to input prices into the cash register and so good typing skill was essential. One week later, she got used to being a cashier but soon became bored of it. She began asking herself, “Why am I doing such a simple and boring job?” On the other hand, she was getting frustrated with herself for being impatient and her inability to stabilize her career. As much as she knew that she had to persevere to overcome her problem, she could not get down to doing it. As before, she had her letter prepared but this time round, she hesitated in tendering her resignation. Coincidentally, she received a call from her mother. “Why don’t you come back home?” asked her mum tenderly. That call changed her mind of staying in Tokyo but to return to her hometown. Given her long stay in Tokyo, there was a lot of stuff to pack. While clearing her desk drawer, she found a notebook. It was her memorable childhood diary! As she flipped through the diary excitedly, she stumbled upon a page with I want to be a pianist. written on it.  That was her dream while she was in high school. She recalled practising very hard as piano playing was the only interest that she pursued relentlessly. Unfortunately, she still gave up her dream of becoming a pianist in the end. As she stared at her diary, reminiscing the time when she was enthusiastically pursuing her dream, she began to reflect and felt regretful about her present life.  “I used to be so enthusiastic at pursuing my ambition but look at what’s happening to me now? It’s my fault that the list of past employers is so long on my resume. I’m feeling so miserable, especially now that I’m about to leave another company again…”   She closed her diary and rang up her mother, speaking in tears, “Mom, I want to challenge myself once again.” She tore up the resignation letter and went on to work at the supermarket - that simple and boring cashier job, the next day.  A couple of days later, it dawned on her that… “While practising piano, I used to make mistakes repeatedly but after many practices, my fingers could naturally pressed the correct key even though my eyes were at the score”  She then thought to herself, “I can also master my typing skill on the cash register in my own way!” As there are many buttons on a cash register, she tried to remember the button layout first before proceeding to practise.  She tried typing on the cash register as if she was playing a piano. Within a week, her typing speed on the cash register was much improved. In the past, she could only keep her eyes on the cash register but now, her new skill had enabled her to also take notice of other areas, much to her surprise. She began observing the customers who came into the store and thought to herself, “Oh, that customer was at the store yesterday too.” “Hmmm…more customers with children come to the store at this timing…”  That became really fun for her privately. While she typed away on the cash register like a pianist, she closely watched the customers and observed their buying behavior - “She mainly buys at promotional price.”  “He always comes to the store just before it is about to close.” “She buys only expensive items.”One day, an old lady who always buys groceries at discounted price came to the cashier counter with a gorgeous fish.She was surprised and could not help asking, “What are you celebrating?” The old lady smiled and replied, “My grandchild won a prize in the swimming contest and so we are going to have a celebration. Fresh fish, isn’t it? “ “That’s great. Congratulations!”  Instinctively, she said those congratulatory words.  That was indeed the first time she enjoyed the experience of interacting with customers and it triggered her to become more proactive in serving the customers thereafter. And gradually, she was able to remember the customers and even their names. She would sometimes suggest, “Ms. Smith, do you want to buy chocolate today? We have chocolate promotions over there.” “Instead of tuna, do you want to buy salmon which is really fresh today?”  The customers were all happy with her suggestions.  “Sounds good, let me give that chocolate a try” customers replied.She started to interact with customers and gradually enjoyed her job. One day, while she was enjoying her conversation with customers at her counter, she suddenly heard an in-store announcement that went, “We apologize for keeping you waiting at the queue today. Please move to other cashier counters with shorter queues.”   Not long after, she heard the in-store announcement again. “We apologize for keeping you waiting at the queue today. Please move to other cashier counters with shorter queues.”  When the in-store announcement came on the third time, she became curious and began looking around. To her great surprise, there was no queue at the other five cashier counters. All customers were patiently queuing up at hers! The store supervisor even rushed to the queue and patiently said, “Dear customers, please proceed to other cashier counters.” One customer immediately replied, “Don’t worry as we are not here to just do shopping. We are here to chat with this cashier. I’m happy to wait in the queue.” She felt so touched upon hearing it that she burst into tears. Another customer also said to the store supervisor, “Yeah, I’m also here to chat with this cashier. While I can easily find promotions at some other stores, I can’t find a cashier as friendly and helpful as her. So please let me queue here.” She was so touched that she couldn’t get back to work. She finally realized what a wonderful job she has!  She immediately became a changed person at work and was soon promoted to become the cashier teams chief, responsible for training new staff.  I’m sure those new staff whom she trained will certainly enjoy interacting with customers and are always thinking, what a wonderful job they have!

ゴルフ [A3.ゴルフ]


  chineese new year eve なのですいてました。今日から3連戦です。今日は、おとといのレッスンの効果があり、Topもせず、V字打法はうまくいきました。後半、ちょっと大たたきしたので、100は切れませんでしたが、ティーショットはかなり安定してきました。後半ウッドのTopが出だしましたね。IronがV字というか腕を返すようにしたら、+10mくらい飛ぶようになりました。明日は、ウッドは方向の精度もいまいちなので、バンカーはいらないように、少し控えます。

FW>I という感じですか。

なぜ「改革」は合理的に失敗するのか 改革の不条理 [人事1-組織開発・ダイバーシティ・採用]

なぜ「改革」は合理的に失敗するのか 改革の不条理

プリンシパル=エージェント関係(-かんけい、principal-agent relationship)とは、行為主体Aが、自らの利益のための労務の実施を、他の行為主体Bに委任すること。このとき、行為主体Aをプリンシパル(principal、依頼人、本人)、行為主体Bをエージェント(agent、代理人)と呼ぶ。エージェンシー・スラック(agency slack)とは、エージェントが、プリンシパルの利益のために委任されているにもかかわらず、プリンシパルの利益に反してエージェント自身の利益を優先した行動をとってしまうこと。エージェンシー問題(-もんだい、agency problem)とは、プリンシパル=エージェント関係においてエージェンシー・スラックが生じてしまう問題のこと。

こうした場合、待つことができずに株を手放し、わずかな金額でも利得を確定させてしまうことがあります。一方、高値で買ったY社の株価はこのところ下がる一方です。しかしいま売りに出すと損失が出るため、売るに売れずに泥沼にはまることがあります。 両者に共通しているのは、人は利得以上に損失を嫌う傾向があるということです。下の図をみると、利得よりも損失のカーブの満足度(効用)が急激にマイナスになっていることがわかります。Aさんが加算される200万円よりも、減額される200万円のほうが大きな金額に見えた背景には、損失回避性と呼ばれる人間心理があったのです。

Every day we make choices. Coke or Pepsi? Save or spend? Stay or go?

Whether mundane or life-altering, these choices define us and shape our lives. Sheena Iyengar asks the difficult questions about how and why we choose: Is the desire for choice innate or bound by culture? Why do we sometimes choose against our best interests? How much control do we really have over what we choose? Sheena Iyengar's award-winning research reveals that the answers are surprising and profound. In our world of shifting political and cultural forces, technological revolution, and interconnected commerce, our decisions have far-reaching consequences. Use THE ART OF CHOOSING as your companion and guide for the many challenges ahead.
2011年11月27日(日)からNHK教育で放映の始まった「コロンビア白熱教室」のテキストとなっているのがこの本です。 「選択」こそが、人間に活力を与える。動物園の動物は、野生の動物より、はるかに食糧、衛生状態の面でめぐまれているにもかわらず、寿命は圧倒的に短い。たとえば野生のアフリカ象の寿命は56歳ですが、動物園のそれは17歳。動物園の動物には、過剰な毛づくろいや、意味もない往復運動などの神経症状をみせる動物が多いのです。その理由は、野生のときのような、「選択」ができないからだ、ということが明らかにされます。人間だって同じです。英国の20歳から64歳の公務員男性1万人を追跡調査して、さまざまな職業階層と健康状態の比較を行うというものがありました。その結果は、「モーレツ上司が、心臓発作をおこして40代でぽっくりいく」という予想と真逆の結果が出ていたのです。職業階層が高ければ高いほど、寿命は長かった。これらは、職業階層の高さと仕事に対する自己決定権の度合いが直接相関していたことに理由がありました。
「ジャムの法則」はアイエンガー教授が、ドレーガーズという高級スーパーマーケットを舞台に、1995年に行った実験で、「豊富な選択肢は売り上げをあげる」というお店の方針を実証しようとするものでした。ところが、結果は逆、24種類のジャムを売り場に並べたときと、6種類のジャムを売り場に並べたときでは、前者は、後者の売り上げの10分の1しかなかったのです。 この結果が実証的に確かめられると、金融商品のバリエーションから、洗剤などの消費財、はては、コンサル会社のコンサルの方法まで、選択肢を絞ることで、顧客満足をあげるというふうに変わっていったのでした。

First Run in 2012 [A1.ランニング]


  The year of 2012 has begun. I did the first 10km run today alongside Singapore river which is my home course. Normally I run without any music devices because I like to think a various things during my run, however today I tried to run with my WALKMAN-NWZ-W252 which was kept on my closet for long time. Uhmm, I felt my adrenalin came out. Yes, I have to strengthen my right brain in this year. Music might be a solution for me to run everyday as a usual exercise.

Book Description

Selecting investments to meet specific social criteria, and keeping the twin goals of justice and environmental sustainability at the forefront, investors can achieve better results in their portfolio and create a better future. For every investor who wants the money to follow the principles, Socially Responsible Investing outlines all the details to bring congruence to investing and social awareness.

Amy Domini, the woman whose name is on the premier index of socially responsible companies, has become one of the most visible and outspoken advocates for SRI. The Domini 400 index tracks highly targeted, select socially responsible companies. This benchmark index, and The Domini Social Equity Fund, a mutual fund that invests in indexed companies, are the brainchildren of Domini and her partners who set out to prove that investing with conscience can be a profitable venture. For its eight years since inception, the fund’s results beat the S&P 500. Showing how to improve the quality of life and the value of a portfolio at the same time, Socially Responsible Investing helps investors: *align investments with beliefs *define particular benchmarks and screen for principles they wish to invest in (or avoid) *learn to identify ethical and financial investment stars *use investment dollars to support community economic development *assess the screening process to address the needs of all stakeholders in a company *dialogue directly with corporations incorporating activist tactics on current issues
