Honda Motor Company Limited telah memperkenalkan teknologi pengecatan baru yang disebut "Honda Smart Ecological Paint (Honda SE Paint)". Teknologi ini telah membuat proses pengecatan menjadi lebih hemat dan berlangsung makin cepat dan tentu saja meningkatkan produktivitas. Proses pengecatan ini akan dimanfaatkan untuk pertama kalinya pada pabrik Honda di Yorii, Saitama mulai Juli 2013.

Pada proses normal, setiap unit mobil harus melalui empat tahap pengecatan sebelum dirakit menjadi satu unit. Namun dengan teknologi baru, menjadi tiga. Pasalnya, material baru selain bisa digunakan sebagai car dasar, juga untuk lapisan terakhir eksterior.

Honda juga memperkenalkan robot pengecatan dengan sistem baru. Kelebihannya bisa memangkas efisiensi pengecatan pada proses perakitan mobil. Tidak tanggung-tanggung, jumlah cat yang digunakan bisa dihemat 40 persen. Berarti juga ikut menghemat energi dan menekan emisi karbondioksida.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
