The Importance of Being Yourself in a Professional Environment

By Dr David Kubes Our business world is way more creative and unique than a lot of people consider. No human being on our planet exactly looks alike – not even twins. The idea of having standards, rules and regulations have not been designed to make us equal or act the same – they were designed to make it easier to live together and have an organization in place that allows us to interact. Unfortunately, this has led to the idea that certain standards have to be or should be met in order to reac...

Coded language of hate groups makes threats hard to spot

Sick jokes and deadly intentions can often be difficult to tell apart for those policing online cultureThe irony-laden vocabulary of the far-right online communities that spawned the terror attack in Christchurch on Friday makes it “extremely difficult” to distinguish a sick joke from a deadly serious threat, according to experts on the international far right and online information warfare.References to “shitposting”, YouTube stars and the 17th-century Battle of Vienna are hallmarks of “that on...

Best places to travel in May

We’ve finally reached the light at the end of the winter tunnel. Daylight savings is over and the sun is shining, and all is right with the world. No? Still not in full-on summer mode yet?

Plus Cinco de Mayo and the general relief that we don’t have to think about winter again until football is b...

White Supremacist References Plaster NZ Mosque Killer’s Rifles, Online Posts

The self-proclaimed racist who attacked a New Zealand mosque conducting Friday prayers during an assault that killed 49 people opened fire with rifles covered in white-supremacist graffiti and listened to a song glorifying a Bosnian Serb war criminal. These details highlight the toxic belief system behind an unprecedented, live-streamed massacre, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called “one of New Zealand’s darkest days.” Much of the material posted by the alleged killer resembles the meme-...

Leonard Bernstein Awkwardly Turns the Screws on Tenor Jose Carreras While Recording West Side Story (1984)

What have we here? Evidence that the Maestro is a monster? Or a behind the scenes reminder that Arrested Development’s wannabe actor Tobias Fünke is not too far off base when he says that to make it in “this business of show, you have to have the heart of an angel and the hide... of an elephant.” Both? Neither? Any way you slice it, the recording session above is not for your typical cast album. West Side Story, with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, and lyrics b...

EU wants tech independence from the US, but it’ll be tricky

The European Union and its citizens seem increasingly unhappy with the current flow of data, privacy violations, and the overall power of data being in the hands of a few big corporations, located in the USA. The European Commission wants to change this. At their flagship event in Vienna, I got some interesting insights on how Europe wants to stand up for its citizens and shift the balance of power towards Europe. New legislation is on it’s way which could severely challenge the position the US ...

Fierce, realistic, intimidating – the VR T-Rex experience changing the way we learn about dinosaurs

Queuing in a low-lit room, I was startled by the sharp yelp from the hipster in front of me. He ducked in a sort of fancy basketball-style dodge, whispered “Oh, God!” and then straightened up and somewhat sheepishly shook himself out. Normally in museums, cries of alarm are about as welcome as a loud conversation in a library. The audience around the cordoned-off area laughed and I pitied him, slightly, as I stepped up for my turn at the American Museum of Natural History’s new virtual reality T...

Before Saudi Arabia Goes Nuclear, It May Have to Follow Iran’s Lead

Key North Korean nuclear reactor has been shut down for months: IAEA

The nuclear reactor that is believed to have supplied much of the plutonium for North Korea's nuclear weapons appears to have been shut down for the past three months, the U.N. atomic watchdog said on Monday, without suggesting why. The 5-megawatt reactor is part of North Korea's Yongbyon nuclear complex, the possible dismantling of which was a central issue in talks between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam last week. The Vienna-based International Ato...
