Share

Waiter dies in bizarre restaurant mishap – The Standard: A Japanese restaurant worker died early Monday in an accident involving a waiter’s lift, police said, a month after a hotel cleaner in Tokyo was crushed to death when she stepped into a moving lift.
The circumstances of the 28-year-old woman’s death were unclear but she had been placing dishes in the small lift on Sunday evening at a restaurant in the central Japanese city of Nagoya, police said.
“An assistant manager found her stuck in the door after she didn’t reply to his call,” said a police spokesman in Aichi prefecture.
The injured woman was rushed to hospital but died early Monday morning, according to authorities, AFP reports.
The lift, reportedly just 70 centimetres high by 60 centimetres wide, was designed to carry dishes between floors of the restaurant.
The fatal accident came about a month after a hotel cleaner in Kanazawa was crushed to death in front of her colleague when she stepped into a moving elevator, made by Switzerland-based Schindler.

Risk aversity visible in the brain – Prof. Dr. Bernd Weber

Share

Some people live their lives by the motto “no risk – no fun!” and avoid hardly any risks. Others are clearly more cautious and focus primarily on safety when investing and for other business activities. Scientists from the University of Bonn in cooperation with colleagues from the University of Zurich studied the attitudes towards risk in a group of 56 subjects. They found that in people who preferred safety, certain regions of the brain show a higher level of activation when they are confronted with quite unforeseeable situations. In addition, they do not distinguish as clearly as risk takers whether a situation is more or less risky than expected. The results have just been published in the renowned “Journal of Neuroscience.”

“We were especially interested in the link between risk preferences and the brain regions processing this information,” says Prof. Dr. Bernd Weber from the Center for Economics and Neuroscience (CENs) at the University of Bonn. First, the researchers tested a total of 56 subjects for their willingness to take risks. “In an economic game, the test subjects had a choice between a secured payout and a lottery,” reports Sarah Rudorf from CENs, the study’s principal author. Those who showed a strong preference for the lottery in this test were categorized as risk takers. Others preferred the secured payout even if the lottery’s odds of winning were clearly better. They were put in the risk-averse group.
