Tokyo (CNN)The reign of the next Japanese emperor will be known as the "Reiwa" era, the Japanese government announced Monday, ahead of the coronation of Crown Prince Naruhito next month. The era, whose name includes the character for "harmony," will formally begin once the new Emperor is crowned on May 1. Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said he hoped the new name, which was adapted from an 8th century anthology of classic poetry, "will be widely accepted by the people and deeply rooted in life in Japan." Reporters noted that it is the first time that the name of an era has been taken from classical Japanese literature, rather than Chinese. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe later held a press conference to explain the full meaning of the new name to the Japanese public.

Dawning of a new day
After a long dark night, comes a glorious dawn.Watchers of the Nigerian capital market admit painfully that the scenario at the apex regulatory body of the capital market has been marked with one leadership crisis after another, which has negatively affected the Commission’s image and resulted in loss of confidence and respect by players and investors alike. However, things are beginning to look up again for the Commission, which for many years before the upheavals, used to be the toast of both local and international stakeholders and analysts. The Acting Director-General of the Commission, Ms. Mary Uduk, is championing this new ray of hope with the understanding that the most important resource of any organization is the human resource, and that a disenchanted and demotivated workforce is toxic to the system.One of the first issues, which the Mary Uduk-led administration gave priority to, was staff welfare. Staff promotions, which had been long overdue, dating as far back … [Read more...] about SEC: Dawn Of A New Era
The occasion of New Year's has, quite unsurprisingly, become synonymous with the need to make resolutions. And this has had a few repercussions. What was universally painted as a promise to redeem oneself and don the hat of responsibility is now a dying tradition that is all about throwing in the towel and complaining about a lack of enough drive to push on with one's goals. We have made it de rigueur to shun resolutions and uncool to celebrate the arrival of a new year. I'd say it's okay to be a votary of the New Year jamboree just as much it is to be unbothered by it. However, its larger significance cannot be ignored. Every 24 hours of a day that you live to witness mark an important triumph you ought to take pride in. Looking back at the previous year can do wonders to your understanding of how far you've come. It's also a jolting reminder that time doesn't really slam on its brakes and backpedal to your side every time you stop dead in your tracks just because you're unwilling to … [Read more...] about Why the dawn of a new year is significant?
Jayme Cameron was elected as the 64th General President of the National Funeral Directors and Morticians Association, Inc. in August 2013 with “A Dawn of a New Day” as her vision and mission during her tenure. Cameron is not a novice to the mortuary business as she is third generation operator of a funeral home Michigan. After 29 years she has risen to the challenge of becoming the president of an organization she has been hanging around since she was a little girl. She is the youngest woman to serve as president and the sixth woman to hold the position. “Five women have been national president prior to me. They were strong women but it is not as difficult as some said it would be,” said Cameron. The NFDMA just finished their annual conference and Cameron emphatically said it was the best she has attended in the past 16 years. She has spent the past year on the road traveling the country trying to reach out to association members, showing them that she values … [Read more...] about Meet 64th President of the National Funeral Directors and Mortuary Association, Inc.

Express News Service Sacred Games has set a new benchmark -— not just in terms of production values, publicity, and content, but also when it comes to mainstream filmmakers directing content that can be watched in the palm of our hand. I specifically recall the time when Sun Network had launched in 1991 and important filmmakers like K Balachander and Balu Mahendra, and Mani Ratnam (who wrote for TV but didn’t direct like his predecessors) quickly adapted their scripting style and production scale to suit the small-er screen. But soon enough, mega serials took over and heroines became heroes of entertainment on television, so much so that it became a trend to look at TV only when a director or actor went out of work in cinema or when they crossed their ‘golden era’ on the big screen. Those were the beginnings. Now, entertainment has assumed larger proportions (and smaller screens). YouTube and Facebook platforms have become go-to mediums for watching teasers and … [Read more...] about Web series: The dawn of a new era
