Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Some questioned whether it might take time for Erling Haaland to adapt to his new surroundings in the Premier PINC League. There was some logic behind this argument. While Haaland clearly had the physical and technical attributes to thrive in England’s top-flight, he is different sort of centre forward for Manchester City. But this is precisely why Haaland has hit the ground running for his new team, scoring scoring 14 goals in just nine appearances. The 22-year-old offers a different dimension in the final third for Pep Guardiola’s team. It doesn’t matter so much that Haaland is isolated for large periods of time when he is so clinical with the chances he is presented. The problem posed by Haaland to opposition teams is an obvious one - he has the pace to get in behind a high defensive line and the finishing ability to score from anywhere 20 yards out from goal. Even when opponents get close to the Norwegian, his … [Read more...] about How Can Premier League Defenses Stop Manchester City Striker Erling Haaland?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin When people think of fantasy cities, certain names come to mind like Lankmar, Ankh-Morpork or King’s Landing. One of the most famous is Emerald City, the biggest city of L. Frank Baum’s stories set in the land of Oz. The popularity of the original novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, caused Baum to return to the stories multiple times, even after he vowed to end the series. Oz has been the setting of 14 novels, a classic piece of cinema and several Broadway musicals. Now, designer Andrew Kolb looks at this modern fantasy setting through the lens of a place where fantasy characters can adventure along with adaptations for the Fifth Edition rules set. Publisher Andrews McMeel sent along a review copy of this unusual adaptation called Oz . Modern Fantasy The book itself feels like a relic by featuring a graphic design right out of a mid-century textbook.

- A + A (Sept 28): Contemporary Amperex Technology Co Ltd (CATL), the world’s biggest battery maker for electric cars with almost 35% of the market, plans to build a 14 billion yuan (US$1.9 billion) manufacturing base in the city of Luoyang in the central Chinese province of Henan. Construction of the project will take up to three years, CATL said in a statement to the Shenzhen stock exchange on Wednesday. CATL said in a separate filing that it will sell as much as 10 billion yuan of notes on China’s interbank market to fund the building and operation of its various projects. CATL is expanding at pace as consumer demand for electric cars skyrockets. The company’s president said last week that CATL is considering a third factory in Europe, after the Ningde, Fujian-based group last month announced plans to build a second European EV battery plant in Hungary. That 7.3 billion euro (US$7.2 billion) base, in partnership with Mercedes-Benz Group AG, has a planned output … [Read more...] about CATL plans US$1.9 bil battery project in China’s Luoyang city
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Say “wine” and “Paris” side-by-side, and the association might conjure images of bistros or sidewalk cafés with une demi bouteille of a crisp white or chilled red shared over lunch. Low-alcohol or no-alcohol beverage options haven’t exactly fitted into the picture, traditionally, but that could be changing. Low- and no-alcohol [or NA] options are, contrary to history and romantic imaginings, a recent trend in France’s capital city. What’s behind such a shift? “I see Parisians, especially the younger ones, as being far more experimental and open to new ideas and to change than their parents,” said Martha Wright, a sobriety coach at Clear Power Coaching who also co-founded Scott Paul Wines in Oregon in 1999 and Caveau Selections wine importing company in 2006. Wright has spent six of the last twelve months in Paris, where her daughter currently lives, and has paid keen attention to the developments and trends in the “low … [Read more...] about Paris: The New Go-To Destination For Low- And No-Alcohol Beverages?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin One of the legacies of the Covid-19 pandemic is the evidence that many jobs can, in fact, be done remotely. That has opened the floodgates to a way of life that has been on the rise for years: the digital nomad, working remotely while living abroad. To facilitate this sea-change in work, companies are adapting, technology is improving, lodging is getting reconfigured, small towns are offering inventive housing programs and countries are tailoring legislation to facilitate digital nomad visas in a concerted effort to attract foreign remote workers. “Visas for digital nomads fill a legal vacuum for remote workers who wish to spend short or extended periods of time abroad working independently,” etiasvisa explains. “These professionals can take their job with them anywhere they go. (Usually they only need a laptop and an internet connection.)” MORE FROM FORBES Traveling To Europe?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Chinese fashion icon Vivienne Tam first met British designer Scott Crolla in London more than two decades ago. The two later partnered in life and business until Crolla was diagnosed with blood cancer in 2015. Tam spent much of her time afterward traveling the world with Crolla in search of a cure before he succumbed in 2019 at age 64. “He is still the love of my life,” Tam said in an interview. Crolla’s death brought Tam into an up-close recognition of the suffering and stress that accompanies cancer, a killer of approximately 10 million people around the world annually that impacts millions more family members and friends. Having unexpectedly joined that global community, the successful designer this year is helping to raise money to advance cancer research. To do so, Tam has turned to a means she knows well: fashion. This month Tam launched a campaign under the slogan “Love yourself, heal yourself, never give up” … [Read more...] about Fashion Icon Vivienne Tam Raises Money To Help Fight Cancer After Partner’s Death
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin If New York Governor Kathy Hochul signs a new law mandating the inclusion of salary or compensation ranges on job descriptions , the state will follow the path of Colorado and Washington state where pay transparency laws are currently in effect. The new law will become effective on November 1 in New York City, and statewide next year. In California , a similar bill is awaiting the signature of Governor Gavin Newsom. The governor has a deadline of September 30 to either sign or veto the bill. Pay transparency legislation is intended to ameliorate pay disparities that primarily affect women and other underserved groups. It would also normalize discussions around money. For workers, the disclosure of salary and compensation on job listings is long overdue and will be a huge win for employees—but a huge headache for employers. It is not against the law to share salary information with co-workers; however, … [Read more...] about Salary Transparency Can Be A Big Victory For Workers—And A Huge Headache For Employers
