  I had to laugh out loud yesterday when reading the paper and seeing that Wells Fargo was going to have to pay $3.4 million to customers to settle a regulator’s claims that brokers recommended certain investment products they did not fully understand. Really? $3.4 Million, that’s all? OK, I’m going to get on my soapbox here so

AirBnB not applicable in China

Oct 11th, 2017 | By

Exert from “The Hustle”:  Aside from struggling to adjust to China’s different set of cultural norms re: sharing homes with strangers, Chinese consumers have also been critical of Airbnb’s recent effort to rename itself “Aibiying” (translation: “welcome each other with love”) in China — which convinced Chinese people it was either a brothel or a

 Strategy is important — but so is following your gut, says Chris Blackwell, the co-founder of Island Records who helped introduce the world to Bob Marley. “Get yourself in the right place at the right time,” he says. “How do you do that? Work it out for yourself.”“How do you know that something is good? Well, you either know, or you don’t. It’s a feeling. It’s a kind of trust in something. There is no secret, no plan. The strategy is often that there is no strategy, only energy.”  Chris Blackwell – founder Island Records, Discoverer and booster of Bob Marley

      Excellent acting from Jake G and not a bad piece of work from anyone else is not quite enough to have this tale – with whatever intended conclusive meaning – a merging of timelines and intention to get revenge or imagined revenge, a suspenseful study of the problems in our characters’ lives,

A post-Brexit coffee tastes different

Jun 25th, 2016 | By

I am enjoying an espresso at the ultimate specialist cafe serving perfect coffee in Bath, post-referendum UK. It tastes different because the blend of coffee, it’s origin, changed, not because of the vote. This one is from Panama.  Perhaps we still accept shipments from Panama, perhaps Panama likes us, perhaps coffee is immune to the
