Seven Questions to Improve Your Business, Your Relationships, and Your Life

Have you put a lot of effort, time, and money into your site and are frustrated with low sales?
If you are like many professionals out there, you know your subject; you are excellent at your craft. You have a great service and maybe a great product to sell.
Many businesses lose money yearly because they don't think creatively about the future.† They run their businesses doing what they think they should: dealing with customers, dealing with problems, ordering for their business, and paying their expenses.

Should billionaires exist? This is a question the candidates have been made to grapple with tonight.
While Bernie Sanders, whose tweet last year inspired the question, is firmly on the side of getting rid of billionaires, he‚Äôs the only one onstage who supports the idea. But not all viewers are so against it:
In a time when ~60% of American workers make less than $40,000 a year, billionaires should not exist.
"Should you exist?" is the only good debate question
When Bernie said "billionaires should not exist" he meant that the economic game is rigged in favor of them. End the rigging, and billionaires won't exist.
‚ÄúShould you exist‚ÄĚ is actually one of my favorite ice-breakers on dates with men. #DemDebate
The two Diamond Princess passengers who died on Thursday were both Japanese, NHK reported - an 87-year-old man and an 84-year-old woman. Both victims reportedly had pre-existing medical conditions, the broadcaster said, adding that the man had been hospitalised on 11 February and the woman the following day.
City councillor says capital‚Äôs water issues may be ‚Äėtip of the iceberg‚Äô for rest of country
Wellington City Council has alerted Island Bay residents to another burst water pipe, frustrating the city‚Äôs residents who are weary of harbour pollution, streets filled with brown sludge and some homes with no water at all.
Since the start of the year the capital has had one water set-back after another. The iconic Oriental Bay was closed to swimmers on some of the hottest summer days due to dangerous levels of pollution, two major city wastewater pipes burst, dozens of homes lost water access, and streets were flooded due to worn-out infrastructure.
WikiLeaks published emails damaging to Hillary Clinton in 2016
Ex-congressman denies being middleman for US president
Donald Trump offered Julian Assange a pardon if he would say Russia was not involved in leaking Democratic party emails, a court in London has been told.
The extraordinary claim was made at Westminster magistrates court before the opening next week of Assange‚Äôs legal battle to block attempts to extradite him to the US, where he faces charges for publishing hacked documents. The allegation was denied by the former Republican congressman named by the Assange legal team as a key witness.
President to appoint ambassador to Germany ‚Äď best known as a Twitter warrior ‚Äď as acting intelligence chief, according to reports
Donald Trump is planning to appoint the US ambassador to Germany, a combative loyalist, to his administration‚Äôs most senior intelligence post, in his continuing effort to wield personal control over the spy agencies, according to multiple US reports.
By making Richard Grenell acting director of national intelligence (DNI), rather than nominating him for the permanent position, Trump would sidestep the need for Senate confirmation, a loophole the president has increasingly exploited as he has moved to replace career officials with those chosen for their personal loyalty.
Justin Bieber and Jack Dorsey among those targeted by hack
MGM confident no financial or password data breached
Personal details of more than 10.6 million former guests of MGM Resorts hotels, including Justin Bieber and Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey, were posted on an online hacking forum this week, according to a new report.
Ex-national security adviser criticized by Obama official
‚ÄėI would feel like I was shamefully violating the oath I took‚Äô
Former national security adviser John Bolton faced a roasting from one of his predecessors on Wednesday night, in his second public appearance since the conclusion of Donald Trump‚Äôs impeachment trial.
Brussels aide says UK cannot have similar trade pact because of proximity to member states
Downing Street‚Äôs hopes of a Canada-style trade deal with the EU have been dealt a further blow after a senior adviser to Brussels‚Äô chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, said the bloc‚Äôs relationship with the North American country was a ‚Äúdifferent ball game‚ÄĚ.
As the two sides prepare for the start of negotiations next month, Stefaan De Rynck highlighted the UK‚Äôs proximity to Brussels compared with Canada as a key factor, as well as warning that the trade talks could get ‚Äúrather difficult‚ÄĚ.
City council releases plans to build an ‚Äėerotic centre‚Äô to prevent rowdy tourists
Amsterdam is considering moving part of its red light district indoors to an ‚Äúerotic‚ÄĚ complex where prostitutes no longer beckon customers through street-front windows that often attract rowdy tourists.
In plans released on Wednesday, the Dutch city said the complex could include a bed and breakfast for prostitutes as well as a sex club, sex theatre and cafes.
The Senakw development aims to ease the city‚Äôs chronic housing crisis ‚Äď and to challenge the mindset that indigeneity and urbanity are incompatible
The scrubby, vacant patch beneath the Burrard Street Bridge in Vancouver looks at first glance like a typical example of the type of derelict nook common to all cities: 11.7 acres of former railway lands, over which tens of thousands of people drive every day.
This is not any old swath of underused space, however. It‚Äôs one of Canada‚Äôs smallest First Nations reserves, where dozens of Squamish families once lived. The village was destroyed by provincial authorities more than a century ago.
Amazon have arrived in force in rapidly expanding Hyderabad, with designs on the currently almost non-existent Indian e-commence market
The futuristic lobby of the new Amazon building in Hyderabad feels as though it should have a permanent orchestra blasting out Also Sprach Zarathustra. The scale is intended to awe. A large slogan on a wall suggests the company is ‚ÄúDelivering smiles‚ÄĚ. The only sound that rises above the hush is a synthesised beep, coming from a giant screen playing a video of the campus at various stages of its construction.
Built on nine acres in this Indian city‚Äôs financial district, it is Amazon‚Äôs single largest building globally and the only Amazon-owned campus outside the US. It can house over 15,000 employees, but its size is its main architectural feature: it resembles the same cube of glass steel and chrome seen in corporate offices across Hyderabad, though a flash of magenta reflected in one of the top floor windows, from a billowing sari across the road, is a nice Indian touch.
Minibuses that run on Friday evenings and Saturdays buck state‚Äôs religious restrictions
Tel Aviv is one of Israel‚Äôs most dynamic cities, but the latest local craze could appear fairly humdrum to outsiders ‚Äď a bus service that runs at weekends.
Packed 19-seat minibuses fill up fast with passengers, who excitedly gossip about the new routes. People patiently queue at bus stops, knowing they might have to wait for two or three buses to pass before there is a space. Still, they are upbeat. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a pleasure,‚ÄĚ said Ben Uzan, a 30-year-old electronic engineer. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a blessed initiative.‚ÄĚ
The Garbage Cafe in Ambikapur, India, is helping to tackle the country‚Äôs plastic waste problem ‚Äď and their novel idea is catching on
On bad days, when his employer made some excuse for not paying him his paltry daily wage, Ram Yadav‚Äôs main meal used to be dry chapatis, with salt and raw onion for flavour. Sometimes he just went hungry. For a ragpicker like him, one of the thousands of Indians who make a living bringing in plastic waste for recycling, eating in a cafe or restaurant was the stuff of fairytales.
But last week, Yadav was sitting at a table at the Garbage Cafe in Ambikapur, in the state of Chhattisgarh, over a piping hot meal of dal, aloo gobi, poppadoms and rice. He earned the food in exchange for bringing in 1kg of plastic waste. ‚ÄúThe hot meal I get here lasts me all day. And it feels good to sit at a table like everyone else,‚ÄĚ he said.
Lawyers say suspected victims of trafficking have not received ‚Äėadequate access to justice‚Äô
The Home Office is planning to deport vulnerable asylum seekers and suspected victims of trafficking on a new charter flight on Thursday, the Guardian has learned.
The flight will be going to Switzerland, Germany and Austria under Dublin convention legislation, EU rules that require asylum seekers to claim asylum in the first safe EU country they arrive in and not move from one to another.
Bones of fish eaten by humans thousands of years ago offer clue to region‚Äôs ancient climate
The Sahara‚Äôs shift from savannah with abundant lakes to a largely arid expanse has been traced in the remains of fish eaten thousands of years ago.
Researchers analysing material found in a rock shelter in the Acacus mountains in south-west Libya say they have found more than 17,500 animal remains dating from between 10,200 and 4,650 years ago, 80% of which are fish. About two-thirds of the fish were catfish and the rest were tilapia. The team say telltale marks on the bones reveal the fish were eaten by humans who used the shelter.
Scott Morrison says inquiry will explore how national response could include military, as well as the role of climate adaptation and hazard reduction
Expanding federal government powers to call out the military, national standards for hazard reduction and the mitigation of natural disasters ‚Äď but not climate change itself ‚Äď will be the focus of the bushfire royal commission.
On Thursday, Scott Morrison released the letters patent establishing the national inquiry, pushing ahead despite concerns over federal overreach into states‚Äô emergency management powers and pressure from Labor jurisdictions to focus more explicitly on reducing emissions.
Hotel bookings plummet by 40,000 in recent weeks as ban on incoming flights from China bites local businesses
The idyllic holiday island of Bali has been hit by the ripple effect of the coronavirus crisis, with tourism plummeting and suggestions it ‚Äúdoes not have the capacity‚ÄĚ to treat patients if they become sick.
Indonesia, the largest country in south-east Asia, claims to have no cases of coronavirus, but according to the Bali‚Äôs tourism board, there have been around 40,000 cancellations of hotel bookings in recent weeks nonetheless. In the first half of February about 740,000 people visited the island ‚Äď 16.25% fewer than the same period last year ‚Äď Bali‚Äôs airport spokesman told state news agency Antara this week.
Raised to hide her low caste, Yashica Dutt‚Äôs new book traces her realisation that her history is one of oppression, not shame
Pretending not to be a Dalit took a heavy toll on the young Yashica Dutt.
Her mother, Shashi, was so determined to protect her three children from the discrimination of the Hindu caste system that relegates Dalits to the periphery of society that she pretended the family were Brahmin.
Children in biggest carbon-emitting nations are healthiest, while those with tiny environmental footprints suffer twofold from poor health and living at the sharp end of the climate crisis
Every country in the world is failing to shield children‚Äôs health and their futures from intensifying ecological degradation, climate change and exploitative marketing practices, says a new report.
The report says that despite dramatic improvements in survival, nutrition, and education over the past 20 years, ‚Äútoday‚Äôs children face an uncertain future‚ÄĚ, with every child facing ‚Äúexistential threats‚ÄĚ.
The Atacama in northern Chile is the driest desert in the world, and may be the oldest. It also holds 40% of the world's lithium ‚Äď an essential ingredient in the rechargeable batteries used in green technology. Indigenous leaders and scientists say Chile's plans to feed a global green energy boom with Atacama lithium will kill the desert. As violent protests rock the country, they are fighting for the mining to stop
Acid attacks have been on the rise in Uganda. Organisations such as End Acid Violence Uganda are pushing for a law that would see harsher punishments for perpetrators such as a ‚Äėno bail policy‚Äô, satisfactory compensation for victims, and implementation of a medical care policy paid for by the government. End Acid Violence Uganda officers make regular home visits to survivors to offer support and guidance.
Analysts say epidemic poses gravest threat to authorities since Tiananmen Square ‚Äď and Beijing‚Äôs tight control could backfire
The coronavirus crisis in China has posed unprecedented political challenges to the authorities and prompted them to further crack down on speech freedom and tighten control over people in a desperate move to bolster the regime, say analysts and activists.
After President Xi Jinping ordered ‚Äúresolute efforts‚ÄĚ to curb the spread of coronavirus in his first public remarks on the disease on 20 January, Wuhan was swiftly placed under lockdown. Millions of communities across China also began to implement draconian epidemic control measures.
Beijing‚Äôs draconian measures to contain outbreak have delayed global transmission
The World Health Organization is having to perform a diplomatic balancing act over the new coronavirus outbreak, caught between China ‚Äď whose draconian measures to contain the disease have delayed transmission to the rest of the world ‚Äďand China‚Äôs critics, who say its behaviour is typical of its disregard for human rights.
At every press briefing, WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has defended China‚Äôs handling of the epidemic in the face of critical questions, very often from US journalists. At the end of January, when Tedros declared a public health emergency of international concern ‚Äď having put it off a week earlier under what was assumed to be pressure from Beijing ‚Äď he praised China for protecting the rest of the world.
Acquittals are welcome but not necessarily a signal of change at heart of government
One defendant in the Gezi park trial grimly predicted the expected results of Tuesday‚Äôs hearing would be the ‚Äúfuneral of civil society in Turkey‚ÄĚ. But a surprise verdict led to applause and tears of joy as nine of the activists charged with terrorism offences for their alleged roles in organising the 2013 protests walked free from the Istanbul courthouse.
The unexpected acquittals of nine of the 16 defendants ‚Äď lawyers say not guilty verdicts for the seven others being tried in absentia are also expected if they return to the country ‚Äď were a rare spot of good news in Turkey, where the judicial system has been hollowed out and weaponised against President Recep Tayyip Erdońüan‚Äôs opponents and critics.
Top diplomats disagreed over the global relevance of the west at the Munich security conference
The chosen theme of the Munich security conference ‚Äď once a party for Nato and now a Davos for the world‚Äôs diplomats ‚Äď was ‚Äúwestlessness‚ÄĚ. The organisers wanted to capture the fear that the west is now so divided and challenged by the rise of China its whole existence has become imperilled.
It was not a concept that won universal acclaim. Margrethe Vestager, the EU vice-president, hit back in one session: ‚ÄúI never thought about ‚Äôwestlessness‚Äô before. Are we here discussing our own depression and asking the rest of the world to join in as a sort of collective mindfulness exercise? I don‚Äôt really don‚Äôt get this.‚ÄĚ European values ‚Äď the rule of law and the integrity of the individual ‚Äď had spread across the world, she insisted.
The former Democratic Illinois governor called himself a ‚ÄėTrumpocrat‚Äô as he thanked Donald Trump for commuting his prison sentence, praising Trump‚Äôs ‚Äėkind heart‚Äô.

A British couple who had been asking the UK government to
organise a repatriation flight for passengers stuck on a cruise ship in Japan will not be on the plane after testing
positive for coronavirus. David Abel said in a video on Facebook that he and his wife, Sally, were being taken to a hostel as there were no available hospital beds nearby. The couple, who are in their 70s, were diagnosed with the virus one day before the ship‚Äôs quarantine was due to end
In video posted on social media, Abdullah Mohammad and his daughter Salwa, three, can be heard laughing at the sound of shelling in Syria. Mohammad, who moved his family from Idlib to Sarmada district, has tried to insulate his daughter from trauma by telling her the noise of bombs is part of a game. In September 2018, Turkey and Russia agreed to turn Idlib into a de-escalation zone in which acts of aggression are prohibited, but since then more than 1,800 civilians have been killed in attacks by the Assad regime and Russian forces
On Monday, David Abel spoke in a video update on Facebook about the mental strain of being quarantined on a cruise ship in Japan amid the coronavirus crisis. ‚ÄėIt‚Äôs all getting to us now ‚Äď not just me, other passengers as well. It‚Äôs the not-knowing factor that is the real challenge,‚Äô he said. The British passenger, who published video diaries from the Diamond Princess, tested positive for the coronavirus, along with his wife, on Tuesday

It is estimated that more than 30,000 pets have been left stranded after the Chinese government sealed off Wuhan following the coronavirus outbreak.
In response, people trapped in Wuhan have been volunteering and checking in on the animals whose owners are stuck outside the city. Here's Ye Jialin's story of helping those who are currently not allowed to return home
