（１） Volkswagen BEETLE について考察。
The leader of Nazi Germany, Adolph Hitler, wanted an inexpensive people’s car, which was to be a simple, inexpensive, mass-produced car for Germany’s new road network called the autobahn. He believed that if every German citizen could afford to own a car, it would bolster his image as a great leader. Supported by Hitler, lead engineer Ferdinand Porsche and his team developed a prototype of the Volkswagen Type 1 in 1938.
Porsche designed military vehicles based on the Type 1 for the war. An amphibious four-wheel drive vehicle called the Schwimmwagen was also produced.
In August 1945, after the war, British Army Officer Major Ivan Hirst ,who had worked as an engineer and was impressed by the Volkswagens, persuaded his superiors to build cars for the British Army. So in December 1945, the Beetle once again began rolling off the production line.
Volkswagen sold only two Beetles in the United States, its most important export market, in 1949. But the car made serious inroads in the US market in the 1950s and the millionth Beetle was built in1955, which was painted gold.
Advertising agency Doyle Dane Bernbach(DDB) and Volkswagen had the challenge of making the slow, ugly, foreign car-------a Nazi car tied to Hitler himself------into a cultural icon. One ad
“So you can easily break almost any speed low in the country in a VW. And you can also cruise right past gas stations, repair shops and tire stores. The VW engine may not be the fastest, but it’s among the most advanced. ” (速くはないが、どこまでも遠くへいける！ How cool isn't it ? ! )
Sales of the Beetle declined in the mid 1970s because of safety concerns, changing emissions standards, and competition from other compact cars.
Production of the Beetle stopped in Europe in 1978, and the final VW Beetle rolled off the production line in Mexico on July 30, 2003. More than 21 million Beetles were made surpassing the longstanding production record of 15 million cars set by Ford Motor Company’s legendary Model T.
Matthew Walker’s book: “ Why We Sleep “ --------------- 怖いお話です。
A lack of sleep will prevent your brain from being able to make new memories.
A lack of sleep will lead to an increased development of a toxic protein in the brain
called beta-amyloid associated with Alzheimer’s disease because during deep sleep at night, a sewage system within the brain starts to wash away this toxic protein.
A lack of sleep will age you by almost a decade in terms of that aspect of virility and wellness. (男らしさと健康の点で１０年老化させる。)
A lack of sleep impacts your immune system. After just one night of four to five hours of sleep, there is a 70% reduction in critical anticancer-fighting immune cells called natural killer cells , and so predicts your risk for developing numerous forms of cancer.
A lack of sleep impacts your cardiovascular system. If you’re getting six hours of sleep or less, you have a 200% increased risk of having a fatal heart attack or stroke in your lifetime.
Once you get past 16 hours of being awake, that’s when we start to see mental deterioration and physiological deterioration in the body. So if you were to ask me what is the recycle rate of a human being, it does seem to be about 16 hours and we need about 8 hours of sleep to repair the damage of wakefulness.
