Here’s what it’s like to fly right now, according to people who’ve done it

here’s what it’s like to fly right now, according to people who’ve done it

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

I love airports. I love to watch people from all over do what they do there because it feels like a moment of shared anticipation among strangers. I miss that feeling and I miss jetting off somewhere myself, but I am really nervous about traveling during coronavirus — not just about the safety of air travel, but also about the experience. I know that I can catch a flight right now, at least domestically, but would it be fun, or an unnecessarily nerve-wracking experience? Before I find that out firsthand, I decided to talk to some people who have gotten onto a plane during this pandemic — for whatever reason — about their experiences.“Entering an airport for the first time in three months with gloves and a face mask was definitely not an experience I thought I would have when I planned my travels for 2020,” Paige Bryan, a 23-year-old in Miami, tells me. Bryan says that she and her younger sister passed through TSA in record time and felt comforted that most people at the airport in Fort Lauderdale were wearing masks. Birmingham, her destination, was another story. “I noticed a lot fewer masks worn by travelers, despite airline regulations,” she says. “ …

guidance on handling a remote online casino business – the leader newspaper

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Working from abroad and remotely has never been as popular and on-demand as it is today. In the 20s of this millennia, more people are trying to start a business from countries that adopt more relaxed regulations and procedures such as Bali, Malta, Gibraltar, Thailand and so on.
Now, everyone who is involved in the digital world dreams of living the so-called digital nomad lifestyle.

Growth Of Million-Dollar, One-Person Businesses Accelerates

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Growing up in California, Jay Regan, 35, developed a lifelong love of diving and surfing. In 2017, he tapped into his passion for the ocean by starting a one-man ecommerce business called GILI Sports in Las Vegas, named for the GILI Islands, an archipelago between Bali and Lombok, Indonesia. GILI Sports sells inflatable, stand-up paddleboards that it manufactures. The company hit about $1.5 million in annual revenue for 2019. Regan donates a portion of the profits from each of the boards, which go for $475 to $850 each, to charities that support oceans, reefs and endangered sea creatures. Regan has no W2 employees, relying on contractors and outsourced services, including his factories, for help. He has never yearned to return to his past life as an employee at companies involved in ecommerce and botanicals.

 “I liked working for people, but I didn’t like the corporate environment and being chained to a desk,” says Regan, a digital nomad who was running GILI Sports remotely from Bali when we chatted earlier this year. “I never made more than $42,000 a year in a job, and whenever I wanted a raise, it was always a struggle.

A Window Onto an American Nightmare

a window onto an american nightmare

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

In recent years, many in the city’s tech industry have funnelled cash toward their own solutions. People who work with the homeless are grateful, but some told me that, aside from a few highly strategic efforts—such as a thirty-million-dollar initiative launched by Marc Benioff, the co-founder and C.E.O. of Salesforce—the industry’s gestures can be naïvely misdirected. For that reason, many advocates think that money raised through taxes is more valuable. In 2017, the Coalition on Homelessness proposed taxing companies with gross receipts of more than fifty million dollars and channelling the funds to homeless services. The mayor opposed the idea, but it gained support from local powers such as Benioff and Pelosi, and passed as Proposition C. The tax has raised three hundred million dollars annually. But, for now, that money remains unavailable, ensnared in legal challenges from the business world.One afternoon, I stopped by the Delancey Street Restaurant, whose dining room has a fancy, old-fashioned style: wood panelling, thick white tablecloths, small arrangements of flowers in the center of each table. A waiter in a crisp white shirt and a black bow tie led me through a hallway to a private dining …

Digital Nomads: Studying in Famagusta, the smart city without Uber | TechCabal

blank

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Last week, Uche, a Nigerian studying in Ukraine shared his story. He answered the question of what to consider when deciding what country to study. 

For Victor in  this week’s Digital Nomad, deciding to study in Cyprus came down to one reason: resumption time. 

Victor tells me: “I had admission offers all over. From the US to the UK as well as the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria. But at the time, there was the ASUU 6 months strike which meant I had to look for a quick alternative.” 

In Nigeria, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) uses industrial strike actions to make demands of the government. It often stretches study duration in many public universities. 

But most of his admission offers had a start date of Spring, and he wasn’t willing to wait that long. He stumbled on Cyprus and realised that their universities had an earlier start date.

“Well at the time, the fact that I could start in the spring and not have to wait till the fall. That was the deciding factor for me.” 

In January 2014, Victor would start two journeys: the first to Cyprus, and a second, an academic journey that would last …

Did Taiwan Win Covid-19 But Miss the Boat to Change Its Work Culture? – The News Lens International Edition

did taiwan win covid-19 but miss the boat to change its work culture? – the news lens international edition

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

What you need to know Given Taiwan’s much-lauded pandemic response, remote work was barely an option for many office workers. Taiwan might have missed the chance to leave its factory work mindset behind. Prior to taking a full-time position in Taiwan, I worked remotely for almost three years. I was a “digital nomad” when it was still cool to be one. In 2020, working remotely is just a new reality for most knowledge workers — except for Taiwanese. The prospect of taking up a 9-5 job again wrecked my nerves. Could I ever succumb to an institutional structure when I barely took corporate internships seriously in college? How would I get along with coworkers who are culturally very different from me? More importantly, just how long could I stand being trapped in an office? Thanks to my company’s cozy office and my surprisingly pleasant coworkers, I’ve survived the past year. I can deal with going to an office. I don’t thrive in one. The commute is still a waste of time, and the job simply doesn’t require my physical presence – as pleasant as that may be. A few disguised blessings of Covid-19 include a changed expectation of …
