This is the national average value, but each province decides its value, based on government policy.

On Wednesday the board of the MHLW-Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare set a guideline to increase Japan's average minimum wage from 14 yen an hour to 902 yen. That's 930 yen more.

The amount of the increase was the highest since 2002, when the minimum wage started to be presented with value per hour of work. But it has not yet reached the goal of an average of XNUMX yen an hour.

Last year, due to the epidemic of the new coronavirus, the council could not give a guideline to increase it. Therefore, the amount of the increase was only 1 yen on average.

It is worth remembering that in Japan the minimum wage is defined by the government of each of the 47 provinces, around October. Currently only Tokyo and Kanagawa have a minimum above 1.013 yen/h, at ¥1.012 and ¥XNUMX respectively.

Aichi's is ¥927 and Osaka's is enquanto964, while there are still many provinces with a minimum of 792, which gives a difference of ¥221 with Tokyo.

But with this guideline it is possible for such provinces as Akita, Shimane, Okinawa and others to go up to ¥800 or more.

A worrying new strain of Covid-19 has been reported in the UK, as scientists remain uncertain whether it could be vaccine resistant.

The Lambda variant, formally known as C.37, was first detected in Peru, and accounts for more than 80% of the country's cases.

A study at the University of Chile in Santiago investigated the effect of Lambda in workers who had received two doses of the Chinese CoronaVac vaccine.

Results suggest that Lambda is more infectious than Gamma and Alpha and is better able to escape vaccine-produced antibodies.

"We observed an increased infectivity mediated by the spike protein from Lambda that was even greater than that of the D614G mutation or the Alpha and Gamma variants," according to the study.

Jeff Barret, director of the Covid-19 Genomics Initiative at the Wellcome Sanger Institute in the UK said it is instead an "unusual set of mutations".

Lambda has a unique pattern of seven mutations in the spike protein that the virus uses to infect human cells, according to the Financial Times.

Pablo Tsukayama, a doctor of molecular microbiology at the Cayetano Heredia University in Lima said the Lambda variant is spreading faster than previous strains.

“By the end of March, it had formed half of all samples collected in Lima. Now, 3 months later, we are recording over 80% of all infections nationwide.

"Lambda became the dominant variant in Peru in a very short period of time." Since then, it has spread to 27 countries.

Attention, girls. If you dream of being “cinderella” for just one night and working as a 'ring girl' in one of the biggest fight events in the world, then this is your opportunity.

It was decided that the “K-1 Mikucha Round Girl Audition”, a collaborative project between 'K-1' (Planning / Production: M-1 Sports Media Co., Ltd. ) and “Mikucha” (a video distribution application 'Live' content developed and operated by DONUTS Co., Ltd.) will be held on September 20, 2012 (Monday/Holiday) at Yokohama Arena in Kanagawa, Japan. The audition, which aims to discover new 'rings' girls', will take place in the same ring as the “K-1 WORLD GP 2021 JAPAN-Yokohama Festival”, to be held on the same date and location.

On 'K-1', in addition to the “K-1 Girls” that liven up the venue of each tournament, previously, names like Yoko Kumada (a talented 'pop star'), Momoka Ishida (aka “Reiwa's Roture Queen”) and popular cosplayers Saki Miyamoto and Kokoro Shinozaki took advantage of their exceptional style to make the inside of the ring even more beautiful and fans more enthusiastic.
This time, it will be a special opportunity for ordinary women to take the big stage. (*This will not be an audition to select permanent new hires as “K-1 Girls”, but to be a “K-1 Round Girl” for one night only).

The audition, which will also be shown during ABEMATV's 'live' broadcast, is open to the public - as mentioned above - and the winner will be posted on the back cover of “Jovem Campeão” magazine.
In addition, it is speculated that the 1st place finisher could receive a cash prize of up to ¥30.000 (30.000 yen).
The 2nd and 3rd place prizes will be 10.000 yen and 5.000 yen, respectively.

Extra benefits of the 'K-1' and the “Mix-Channel” will also be distributed.

Registration for the audition will be open until 12:00 on July 14, 2021 (Wednesday). The selected candidates will be announced 'live' on “Mikucha” for 18 days, from July 15th (Thursday) from 12pm to August 1st (Sunday) until 23pm, and the final screening (on September 20th ) will be based on the points earned so far. The final result will be announced on the official 'K-1' website and on the franchise's official 'Twitter'.

Candidates must be healthy women, aged between 16 and 39 years and measuring 1,50 cm or more, among other requirements.
