There’s a problem with the way we define inequality

By Bryan Lufkin| BBC.com

We are failing to look at inequality in the right way, according to researchers who study people’s attitudes to wealth disparity.

Haves and have-nots. The 99%. The income gap. The chasm between rich and poor has never mattered more. It’s estimated that the top 1% of the world’s richest people owns 50% of the planet’s wealth.

Solving this level of inequality is often held up as a ‘grand challenge’ for the world. But is that the right way to look at it? Continue reading

Liu Xiaobo: The man China couldn’t erase

By BBCNEWS

Activist Liu Xiaobo has died after spending eight years in prison.

“There is nothing criminal in anything I have done but I have no complaints.”

So stated Liu Xiaobo in court in 2009, and in the eight long prison years between then and now, he refused to recant his commitment to democracy. No wonder China’s leaders are as afraid of him in death as they were in life. Continue reading

Top 5 Things Every Immigrant Should Know Before Heading to the U.S.

immigrationgateway.org| By: Valerie Johnston

Immigrating to the U.S. just became a lot harder for many with President Trump’s newly enacted policies. But that doesn’t mean that many millions of people won’t still give it a shot. Here are the top five things that everyone should know before they immigrate to the U.S.

  1. You’ll have to pay for your visa.

Many immigrants believe that getting married to a U.S. citizen, or meeting some other requirement for U.S. citizenship, means that they will have an unrestricted passage into the country. However, there are still some very high costs associated with getting the visa to enter the country, even if you are married or otherwise eligible for citizenship.

The Dark Town That Built a Giant Mirror

By Linda Geddes|BBCNEWS

The inhabitants of Rjukan in southern Norway have a complex relationship with the Sun. “More than other places I’ve lived, they like to talk about the Sun: when it’s coming back, if it’s a long time since they’ve seen the Sun,” says artist Martin Andersen. “They’re a little obsessed with it.” Possibly, he speculates, it’s because for approximately half the year, you can see the sunlight shining high up on the north wall of the valley: “It is very close, but you can’t touch it,” he says. As autumn wears on, the light moves higher up the wall each day, like a calendar marking off the dates to the winter solstice. And then as January, February and March progress, the sunlight slowly starts to inch its way back down again. Continue reading

英国收入最好与最差的大学专业[CN]

|BBC

哪些英国大学与专业毕业生收入最高?哪些专业毕业生收入还达不到最低工资?

英国大学的学费一年9000英镑已经打不住了。数所大学从秋季新学年开始追加250英镑。

三年读下来,要欠高街银行或父母银行一屁股债。英国的孩子们和他们的父母要好好掂量。

欧盟之外的海外留学生,要掏数倍于英国孩子的钱上同样的大学,学同样的专业。要来英国读大学的中国孩子们和他们的父母,更要仔细斟酌。 Continue reading

The financial gamble of working abroad

By Alina Dizik|BBC.com

In January last year, Rebecca Self found her salary had dropped by almost 30% pretty much overnight.

It wasn’t from a demotion, cost-cutting or a corporate restructure – Self’s pay packet was slashed by a shift in currency markets, an issue that affects many expats working around the world.

Self is a leadership consultant based in Zurich, Switzerland. An American expat, she gets paid from different countries in different currencies – she’s paid in dollars through a firm in Qatar in the Middle East, and also in euro through a firm she works for in Sweden. She then converts her earnings into Swiss francs. Continue reading

Grant SD card access on Android 5.0

An app attempting to write to the SD on an Android 5.0 device will prompt you to grant access.

Then select the card. Don’t navigate down into any subfolder. You MUST select the top-level root folder of the SD card.

After tapping the “Select SD card” button you should be back in the app. The app double checks if it now indeed can write to the SD card. You should see a message about the check result in the app.

If you replace the SD card in your device, you need to go through this procedure again. The write permission is granted individually for each app and each physical SD card.
