Our commitment to Asia Pacific’s coronavirus response

The COVID-19 pandemic began spreading across Asia Pacific in January, affecting millions of people directly—and billions more through restrictions on the way we live and work and the impact on the regional economy. Throughout the region, we’ve seen people and businesses adapt with resilience, determination and ingenuity, including adopting and developing new technologies. Today, some parts of Asia Pacific are beginning to ease social distancing measures and restrictions on commerce—but we’re sti...

How to Negotiate Salary as a Newcomer

by  Tunde Omotoye Tunde Omotoye started his career as a Human Resources Associate in Nigeria. He certainly understood how the hiring process worked! However, he needed to learn an entirely new process when he immigrated to Canada. Here’s something you might not know if you’re new to the workforce in North America: People who negotiate their salaries earn more money than those who do not. That’s because employers do not put their best offers first. In fact, they expect you to negotiate. ...

Disappearing Tokyo places, and people

Last month, I posted a series of photos documenting the demise and pre-demolition abandonment of an old Tokyo danchi, or social housing complex. A sight that signalled the ageing nature of the buildings, as well as the generation that first moved into them. Photos that fortunately were taken at just the right time, as the fences are now up, meaning the end of a certain era really is nigh.

Denver Zoo baby rhino cam

The best part about working from home is that you can spend two hours watching a live baby rhino cam, and no one can call you out on it. The Denver Zoo just released a livestream of a baby rhino, and it’s easily the best excuse to take a suspiciously long lunch break. “You asked and we listened!” said the zoo. “We now have a Baby Rhino Live Cam up and running. You can enjoy our greater one-horned bundle of joy right here.” View this post on Instagram ...

Virtual tour of Wuhan, China

Few Americans might have been aware that Wuhan, China, is known as “The Chicago of the East” before the first half of 2020.

Maurice thought he was getting a single serving TV Dinner but it turned out to serve two, and once, even four. I thought I was going to get a wedge from a giant orange squash but got the whole enormous one. I had to use an big knife to get it into pieces and almost needed a saw. Then I baked the pieces, made a huge pot of soup and froze the rest. I’m glad we have a large re...

Cox: Brace for America’s version of #Saudi Aramco – Breakingviews Calamity creates opportunity. That has always been true when it comes to corporate consolidation.

Norwegian Cruise Line bankruptcy

The entire travel industry has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, but the cruise sector has likely received the biggest blow. Several of the first large coronavirus outbreaks occurred on cruise ships, leaving passengers stuck at sea for weeks while they were denied docking at multiple ports — events that may have badly damaged the reputation of the cruise industry. Despite Carnival’s intention to resume cruising operations on August 1, the future of many major cruise lines looks grim. No...

Underground pit barbecue styles

Barbecue is about the closest thing that humans have to a universal cooking style. In countries around the world, people barbecue meat and vegetables over fire. Each method is slightly different — the Chilean asado has the meat spread upright against a large open fire, for example, while Japanese yakitori uses narrow charcoal grills. And then there’s the style that’s among the oldest and most traditional: barbecue done in an underground pit. Pit barbecue is especially prevalent in countries i...

Is swimming with whales in Tonga OK?

The bottom of our boat slaps against frothy waves as we head away from the calm waters of the Blue Lagoon Resort and out into the open ocean. I let my hair down out of its messy bun and scoot toward the back of the boat, my fins and mask in hand. Salty wind blurs my vision as we press on further and faster until finally, our guide Uli slows the boat down, points north, and bellows, “Tofua’a – Whale!” Uli shouts in Tongan to his deckhand Tao, who leaps from the boat and plunges into the Pacif...

Best museums in Africa

For black people across the diaspora, coming to Africa can be much more than a vacation. Many see it as a pilgrimage, one of returning to the home of their ancestors, so the normal trappings of the average holiday may not be enough for their journey. Visitors to the African continent are frequently there to experience the arts, letters, and history in a way that may not be required of other vacations. Museums of all stripes act as collectors and aggregators of heritage, and on the African con...

Nunavik, Quebec, Arctic north travel

Located just two hours from Montreal by plane, Quebec’s northernmost region is more accessible than you might imagine. But upon arrival, the all-encompassing tundra and Arctic wildlife will have you convinced you’ve traveled much further. Nunavik, which means “great land” in the area’s Inuit language, covers almost 110 million acres in Quebec’s Arctic north but has little more than 13,000 inhabitants. Roads terminate hundreds of miles south of the region, isolating it from the rest of the pro...

Ways mothers carry their babies

To provide safety , facilitate feeding, and promote mutual bonding, human infants, who are born helpless and defenseless, are traditionally in contact with their mothers day and night. But mothers also contribute at least half of the labor needed to keep their families and communities together, which means that mom needs her hands free. Maybe she’s weaving. Perhaps she’s gathering from the garden or traveling to get water from the village well. It could be that she’s cleaning the house and typ...
