Japan suicides at historic low in 2019 but more teens kill themselves

first_imgSuicides in Japan in 2019 fell to a historic low, marking the tenth straight year of declines, but youth suicides continued to rise, police said on Tuesday.Though suicide in Japan has a long history as a way of avoiding shame or dishonor, and its suicide rate still tops the Group of Seven nations, a national effort has brought suicides down by about 40% in roughly 15 years.Suicides totaled 20,169 in 2019, 617 or 3.7% fewer than the previous year, and was the lowest since the compilation of data began in 1978. The suicide rate edged down to 16% per 100,000, a dip of 0.5% from the previous year and also the lowest in history. By contrast, the suicide rate for the United States, which has more than twice Japan’s population and a growing suicide problem, was 14.2% in 2018.The number of those under 20 who took their lives rose by 60 from the previous year to 659, the only age group to see a rise. Though suicides result from multiple causes, bullying has remained a persistent problem in Japanese schools.Suicides peaked at 34,427 in 2003, alarming policy makers and drawing foreign attention.Though the police did not give any reason for the decline, an improving economy has undoubtedly helped, and a suicide prevention program is apparently bearing fruit.

We’re going to take a look at each of the available models so you don’t spend your money on an outdated product.The easiest ways to differentiate each Galaxy Tab E model is by their display sizes and Android- operating system version. The original 9.6-inch Galaxy Tab E was released back in 2014, running Android 5.1. This larger version is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 CPU and comes with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. A microSD card slot allows you to expand to up to 128GB of storage space.Buy Galaxy Tab A on Amazon.comThe 8-inch version of the Galaxy Tab E, released a year later, has very similar specifications — a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 CPU, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage —  but it supports LTE connectivity for AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon networks.Owners of either version of the Galaxy Tab E are happy with the tablets’ performance and their display quality, based on thousands of reviews averaging between 4.2 and 4.6 stars on Best Buy and Amazon. Conversely, some users took issue with the quality of their 2- and 5-megapixel cameras and poor speaker output. MORE: Kids Tablets to Buy (or Avoid)While the overall reception of the Galaxy Tab E is overwhelmingly positive, it’s important to remember that this tablet was released four years ago, when our demands for mobile devices weren’t what they are today. Compared with modern smartphones and tablets, the Galaxy Tab Es’ display resolution of 1280 x 800 is poor, and their processor underpowered. Also, keep in mind that Google no longer supports Android 5.1 Lollipop, so you’ll want to update to the latest Android 7.1 Nougat OS.The Galaxy Tab E is a solid low-budget tablet for everyday use, but the Galaxy Tab A, an updated version of the 8-inch Galaxy Tab E, has twice the storage, a more powerful processor, and runs Android 7.1 Nougat OS out of the box. You can occasionally find the Galaxy Tab A on sale for around $150, making it a better buy than the Galaxy Tab E.There is a third version of Samsung’s budget tablet called the Galaxy Tab E Lite. I suggest you ignore the enticing $70 price and stay far away from it. The tablet runs an ancient version of Android — Android 4.4 KitKat — and sports a fuzzy 7.0-inch, 1024 x 600-pixel display.Credit: SamsungTablets – Tablet Reviews, Buying Guides and Top PicksBest Tablet – Top Tablets on the Market – Laptop MagBest 2-in-1s – Laptop/Tablet Hybrids – Laptop Mag Price $149.99$149.99$69.99 Portsmicro USBmicro USBmicro USB Size9.5 x 5.9 x 0.4 inches8.4 x 5.0 x 0.4 inches7.6 x 4.6 x 0.4 inches RAM1.5GB1.5GB1GB ColorsBlack BlackWhite Storage16GB16GB8GB Display9.6-inch, 1280 x 800-pixels8-inch, 1280 x 800-pixels7-inch, 1024 x 600-pixels Android tablet makers had a valiant run at the iPad in its early days, but the competition has slowed down as Chrome OS and Windows 10 tablets and convertibles are now flooding the market.Samsung, however, still offers a slew of low-priced Android tablets, including the popular Galaxy Tab E.
