US stocks slide after threat from Trump to raise tariffs

By Damian J. Troise and Alex Veiga, The Associated Press Fresh market jitters over the possibility of an escalation in the costly trade war between the U.S. and China pulled stocks broadly lower on Wall Street Monday.

Trump complained that the trade talks between the two countries are moving too slowly. Investors have been expe...

KY eats – Foo Hing Dimsum, Puchong

I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of going to Puchong, and it is due to the reason perhaps most of us view Puchong as – the giant parking lot outside that old IOI shopping mall. Well, after so many moons, I ended up there again on a morning of a public holiday, for a short hiking trip to Wawasan Hill (see pic below). Foo Hing Dimsum, Puchong Well, what do you do after a good 2 hour or so hiking workout? Breakfast of course! So by 8:20 am in the morning, we came to the most famous dimsum p...

The Rise and Fall of Western Empires Visualized Through the Artful Metaphor of Cell Division

We can hardly understand how the modern world arrived at its current shape without understanding the history of colonial empire. But how best to understand the history of colonial empire? In animation above, visualization designers Pedro M. Cruz and Penousal Machado portray it through a biological lens, rendering the four most powerful empires in the Western world of the 18th and 19th centuries as cells. The years pass, and at first these four cells grow in size, but we all know the story m...

Dramatic Documentary (OT)

This three-year-old grew up to be one of the greatest racing drivers in history,and the last F1 driver to die in the heat of battle until Bianchi in 2015 A few days ago, May 1, was the 25th anniversary of the death of Ayrton Senna. If you've never seen the movie Senna, I highly recommend it—it's one of the great stories, easy to appreciate even if you don't care at all about cars or racing.

Murder at the airport: the brazen attack on Kim Jong Nam

Early on a February morning two years ago, a balding man in a gray suit entered Malaysia's Kuala Lumpur airport, glanced up at the departures board and walked to check in for his flight to Macau.

Geo-Centric Complexity

An interesting discussion during Dagstuhl last month about the US-centric view of theory. Bad enough that all talks and papers in an international venue are in English but we also have Manhattan Distance. How are foreigners supposed to know about the structure of streets in New York? What's wrong with grid distance? Las Vegas Algorithms. I found this one a little unfair, after all Monte Carlo algorithms came first. Still today might not Macau algorithms make sense?

The Labour Challenge for Japan’s Casino Resorts | By Chris Mumford

Integrated casino resorts are moving closer to becoming a reality in Japan. While the Integrated Resort (IR) Implementation Bill was passed by Japan's Diet last summer, it is anyone's guess as to when the actual licenses, expected to be granted in Osaka, Tokyo, and Yokohama, will be awarded. In addition to one or two local Japanese firms such as Sega Sammy and Konami, the likes of global casino players MGM, Las Vegas Sands, Wynn and Caesars, are all pitching and lobbying furiously to win ...

Tourist dies at the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is one of the most popular and widely recognizable tourist attractions in the world, but unfortunately, it can also be quite dangerous. Steep inclines, sharp drops, and precarious trails mean you need to be on high alert, no matter how badly you want to get that Instagram photo. Just yesterday, a Macau man, who was part of a tour group from Hong Kong, fell to his death at Eagle Point near the Skywalk. The Skywalk offers views as far as 4,000 feet into the canyon. The man fell...

I stayed at Hong Kong's first 'capsule hotel' to see what it's like to live in micro — and the experience was a nightmare

SLEEEP is Hong Kong's first capsule hotel, a concept invented in Japan in the late 1970s that aims to provide cheap, convenient "sleeping pods" for travelers who do not require the services of a full hotel. I stayed at SLEEEP last March on a business trip to Hong Kong. It cost around $75 USD per night, cheap for a hotel on Hong Kong island, but other accommodations on Airbnb or in budget hotels can be had for cheaper. SLEEEP is ideally located and well-designed aesthetically, but its capsules ...
