TOKYO, May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tanaka Holdings Co., Ltd., the Tanaka Kikinzoku group's holding company headquartered in Tokyo, is sponsoring Japan's women's national blind football team as part of support it has extended to the Japan Blind Football Association (hereinafter JBFA) since this past April. Tanaka's corporate logo is displayed on the right sleeves of national team members' uniforms. Since blind football was introduced to Japan in 2001, female players had been forced to play with male players because there were not many female players. Moreover, a gap in physical strength and ability between men and women and a lack of an adequate training environment and facilities made it difficult for female players to continue playing the sport. The JBFA, which is certified as an NPO, launched activities in 2014 to scout for female players and train them, and launched Japan's women's national blind football team on April 1, 2017, after trying to overcome various challenges. In May 2017, the team participated in the International Blind Sports Federation (hereinafter IBSA) Women's Blind Football Tournament, the first international women's blind football event, in Vienna, Austria. The Tanaka Kikinzoku group, which has been exploring the potential of precious metals and trying to develop and produce precious metal goods on a global scale, has empathized with the JBFA and Japan's women's national blind football team, both of which are striving for better performances by moving beyond the bounds of sports for the handicapped, and became a sponsor for the team. The Tanaka Kikinzoku group is determined to contribute to the development of blind football and the promotion of sports for handicapped people. The female Japanese team who participated in the "IBSA Women's Blind Football Tournament 2017" held from May 3 to 7 won the championship. The results of the national team's games are as follows: IBSA Blind Football Tournament 2017, held in Vienna, Austria, from May 3 to 7 under the auspices of the IBSA, is the first international blind football tournament for female players. Players and staff members from 16 countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Canada, Mexico and Japan) participated. Japan, England-Greece selection team, Russia-Canada selection team and IBSA selection team (composed of members excluding athletes from Japan, England, Greece, Russia and Canada) played with one another in a round-robin league competition (each game 10 minutes half). They then played a third-place game and a final game according to their rankings in the league competition. Japan's national team was launched on April 1, 2017. Since blind football was introduced to Japan in 2001, female players had been forced to play with male players. A gap in physical strength and ability between men and women made it difficult for female players to continue playing the sport. The team was formed after training sessions, which the JBFA launched in 2014 with the aim of scouting for capable female players and training them, subsequent games in July 2016 involving players selected through this process, and a training camp for prospective members of Japan's national team that kicked off in January 2017, among other events. The JBFA is training and developing Japanese national team players and conducting an awareness-raising campaign on diversity with the aim of "achieving a society in which visually impaired people and non-handicapped people can naturally coexist through blind football."

Japans Nationalmannschaft wurde am 1. April 2017 gegründet. Seit Blindenfußball 2001 in Japan eingeführt wurde, waren Spielerinnen gezwungen gemeinsam mit ihren männlichen Kollegen zu spielen. Die unterschiedliche körperliche Stärke und die verschiedenen physischen Fähigkeiten von Männern und Frauen machten es für Frauen schwierig, die Sportart weiter zu betreiben. Das Team wurde neben anderen Veranstaltungen nach Trainingseinheiten gebildet, die die JBFA 2014 einführte, um Ausschau nach kompetenten Spielerinnen zu halten und diese zu trainieren, sowie im Anschluss an nachfolgende Spiele im Juli 2016, an denen durch dieses Verfahren ausgewählte Spielerinnen teilnahmen, und einem Trainingscamp für angehende Mitglieder der japanischen Nationalmannschaft, die 2017 ins Leben gerufen wurde. Seit ihrer Gründung im Jahr 1885 hat die Tanaka Kikinzoku Group eine Reihe verschiedener Geschäftsaktivitäten mit Schwerpunkt Edelmetalle aufgebaut. Tanaka ist in Japan ein führendes Unternehmen hinsichtlich des Volumens der gehandelten Schwermetalle. Im Verlauf vieler Jahre hat die Tanaka Kikinzoku Group nicht nur Edelmetall-Produkte für die Branche hergestellt und verkauft, sondern auch Edelmetalle in Form von beispielsweise Schmuck und Ressourcen bereitgestellt. Als Spezialisten für Edelmetalle arbeiten alle Konzernunternehmen in und außerhalb von Japan mit einer einheitlichen Kooperation zwischen den Produktions-, Vertrieb- und Technologiebereichen zusammen, um Produkte und Dienstleistungen anzubieten. Um weitere Fortschritte hinsichtlich Globalisierung zu machen, hat Tanaka Kikinzoku Kogyo im Jahr 2016 Metalor Technologies International SA als Mitglied seiner Gruppe willkommen geheißen. Anmerkung zum Gründungsjahr der Gruppe * Am 1. April 2010 wurde die Gruppe umstrukturiert und Tanaka Holdings Co., Ltd. zur Holdinggesellschaft ernannt.

A TiN/HfN-coated tool (THN-HF(L)) was developed to improve the processing efficiency of machining austenitic stainless steel. Using scratch tests, this tool was compared with other film-coated tools, and its critical load showed the highest value. The THN-HF(L) tool, whose film was formed in the low bias voltage condition, has a longer tool life than conventional tools. In high-speed cutting (4 or 5 m/s), its tool life is over 20 km. Even though the THN-HF(L) tool's cutting distance surpasses that of conventional tools, adhesion is controlled, and flaking of the film coating on the cutting edge is not observed.

Since its emergence in April 2009, pandemic influenza A virus H1N1 (H1N1 pdm), a new type of influenza A virus with a triple-reassortant genome, has spread throughout the world. Initial attempts to diagnose the infection in patients using immunochromatography (IC) relied on test kits developed for seasonal influenza A and B viruses, many of which proved significantly less sensitive to H1N1 pdm. Here, we prepared monoclonal antibodies that react with H1N1 pdm but not seasonal influenza A (H1N1 and H3N2) or B viruses. Using two of these antibodies, one recognizing viral hemagglutinin (HA) and the other recognizing nucleoprotein (NP), we developed kits for the specific detection of H1N1 pdm and tested them using clinical specimens of nasal wash fluid or nasopharyngeal fluid from patients with influenza-like illnesses. The specificities of both IC test kits were very high (93% for the HA kit, 100% for the NP kit). The test sensitivities for detection of H1N1 pdm were 85.5% with the anti-NP antibody, 49.4% with the anti-HA antibody, and 79.5% with a commercially available influenza A virus detection assay. Use of the anti-NP antibody could allow the rapid and accurate diagnosis of H1N1 pdm infections. Copyright © 2011, American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved.

Pd nanoparticles exhibit the abnormal behavior of the Pd lattice expanding as the size of the Pd nanoparticles decreases. We measured extended X-ray absorption fine structure of poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone)-protected Pd nanoparticles and confirmed that the Pd-Pd bond distance in small Pd nanoparticles with a diameter of less than 3 nm was elongated by 2% compared with that in Pd foil. The origin of the unusual bond elongation was discussed. © 2015 The Chemical Society of Japan.
