Gentlemen, in which city in the world would you live, if you were able to live there?

In my case, I would say Hong Kong. It's vibrant culture, people and it's design and architecture are wonderful.

Well, you can find something remote. For example, here https://ca.jooble.org/jobs-data-entry-no-experience-work-from-home there are many remote work options. Try to find something that will allow you to travel from time to time or not require being in the same city. By the way, Tokyo is very cool, I also love Japan very much.

>i choose hong kong

What are some other once promising destinations that changes in local political conditions have ruined?

Inb4 all of America

Once they opened up to America the charm went away. Used to be you'd go across and they'd take tips in the form of goods (communism = no personal wealth), now they want US$.

Also; Starbucks.

I would honestly love an untouched, natural lake somewhere far away from other people. It would be amazing to bathe in.

LOVE coffee. French press, dark roast, 1/4tsp sugar, splash of whole milk.

This seems like a good place to tell my favorite coffee shop story.

There was a high end boutique coffee shop in manhattan, where the gimmick was taking the brew to the nth degree. Each cup of water was boiled individually, with a thermometer in a glass beaker to reach optimal temperature. The grind done just before the pour, through a cone, just for your order. All in front of you, so you could marvel at the precision and art

Then they poured it into a cheap paper take out cup and all you could taste was bleached wood pulp.

I have a problem. I recognize that the amount of coffee I drink is no good. I drink literally 3-5 mugs at least every day. It's not about the caffeine anymore. I have become immune. It's just that it's something to do, something to make my chest feel full. I used to smoke heavily. Now I drink coffee. It started when I was getting off meth. It might never end. Help.

WTF is equity? anon 21/05/11(Tue)01:17 No. 3627 [Reply]

My thought is the equity idea proposed by Kamala Harris will not work very well in business. I think equity can work in our educational systems, but it will not work very well for corporations. The main reason is a pay for performance culture is the best way to get results we need to improve our world. Please read this entire post.
I do think something needs to change as women often get paid less for identical work, and this is not fair. The system is unfair, but this is often due to billionaires, not the middle class. It was billionaires who took government handouts and gave themselves bonuses and gave loans to senators.
We are all crew members on planet earth, and we do need a fairer system, but I think equity will be used to target the middle class and the poor, so they get paid less overall as a group.

It is crucial to understand business is about execution and getting results.
Consider this case where 2 women have the same job.
Woman A: Works insanely hard (18 hour days) makes great sacrifices, and brings in 2 million dollars of profit for her company ACME by a massive yearlong effort building widgets. She eats lunch at her desk each day, drinks red bull, and is 100% committed to work. She gives up her free time so that she can do more work. She will always return work phone calls and work e-mail after 5 pm. She works late every night and every weekend. Next year she plans to bring 4 million for her company.
Woman B: Does not do much work. Brings in only 10,000 dollars in profit building widgets for the same year period for her company ACME. She works only 6 hours a day and enjoys 2-hour lunches with a glass of wine. She refuses to return work phone calls and work e-mail after 3 pm. She never works weekends. Next year she plans to bring in only $8,000.

Should Woman B and Woman A make the same salary even though they both have the same job category? I would argue that Woman A should be paid more based on her sacrifices and performance.

I worked two jobs in college (-40 hours, mostly graveyard shifts), and often, at the end of the month I was out of money and had to live on rice and soy sauce for over 2 weeks. I did not complain once because a lot of the world lives this way all the time, and I at least had a roof over my head.
Today I use my college knowledge to save lives as a docker, why should my incentives to work hard be reduced? If I did not go to college I will not be able to save lives like I do now.
The equity cartoons are cool and have some use in the education system but has anybody really thought this through on what it means for our GDP if we lose the pay for performance system and stop rewarding actual work output? Where is the written system that spells out how this idea is goin Message too long. Click here to view the full text.

You have a bad case of black and white thinking. There's a broad spectrum between pure capitalism and outright marxism, and civilized countries exist somewhere in the middle. Marxists and progressives are also not the same thing. Remember, marxism truly took hold in eastern nations like China and North Korea, and they're some of the least tolerant places on earth.

Sophisticated Gentleman 21/11/01(Mon)12:59 No. 3706

I'd rather work like the woman in the second example. In fact, while looking for a job, I realized that I want to find something calm. It was one of my top job search criteria at https://uk.jooble.org/jobs/Luton%2C-Bedfordshire . I don't want to be nervous, stay late after work, work on weekends, so I found a great job as a secretary on this site.

There's no such thing as equity

What is your college major? Do u have enough money for studying?

Sophisticated Gentleman 21/10/24(Sun)14:16 No. 3704

I study cosmetology. I got scolarship for my studying from https://www.listsofscholarships.com/cosmetology-scholarships/ A training program in cosmetology can equip you with the skills that will help you find employment in this field. Good one for me becasue I am poor student and do not have money for studying in popular colleges.

If you win a scholarship, it’s hoped that your approach to life will change. If you’ve been helped by this donation, then you may go on to become more philanthropic yourself. Perhaps you’ll go on to found another scholarship or support the college with charitable donations.

Agree that place looking well. You know I like traveling and often visit new places. My next trip will be https://www.africanjacana.com/united-states/chicago/ Simple things like how people greet and talk to each other, how they behave tell you a bit about their culture. What’s more, travelling teaches you failures can turn into great hands-on lessons. It is true that travelling is not always glorious and can be hard at times.

Very few other careers give people the opportunity to do as much good as the healthcare industry does. This desire to help others is what motivates most people in the industry to do their jobs day in and day out with a smile on their faces.
