Seven Questions to Improve Your Business, Your Relationships, and Your Life
One of the most powerful tools we have as humans is our ability to ask questions. The more adept we are at asking them (and waiting for and listening to the answers), the more effective we will be.
Here are some simple tips to help you improve your cross cultural communication skills:
Even when English is the common language in a cross cultural situation, this does not mean you should speak at normal speed. Slow down, speak clearly and ensure your pronunciation is intelligible.

Always include a powerful signature on every email you send out, even to friends. It's even more important when you send out articles to opt-in ezines (no spam) and top web sites in your field--more important than your article's message.
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.
Web Site Blues? Need one, don't know where to start? Got one, but aren't getting enough sales?
If you need a Web site soon you may be wondering where to start and who to trust. All Web masters are not equal.

The New Zealand police, New Zealand Defence Force and numerous major sponsors have pulled out of the countryâs largest pride parade after organisers banned police and corrections staff from marching in uniform.

Top job may go to Alexander Prokopchuk, who is accused of abusing power at Russian bureau
Western officials and Kremlin critics are watching with mounting alarm as Interpol prepares for a vote that could put a Russian interior ministry general in charge.
The general assembly of Interpol, which facilitates international police cooperation, is under way in Dubai and will vote on a new president on Wednesday. Alexander Prokopchuk, who was appointed to lead the Russian bureau of Interpol in 2011 and is currently a vice-president of the organisation, is considered to be the leading candidate. Critics say that he oversaw a policy of systematically targeting critics and dissidents during his time in charge of the Russian office of Interpol.

Erik Solheim quits after Guardian reveals excess travel and rule breaking which led to withholding of funds
The UNâs environment chief, Erik Solheim, has resigned following severe criticism of his global travels and internal rule-breaking which led some nations to withhold their funding.
The Guardian understands Solheim was asked to resign by the UN secretary general, AntĂłnio Guterres. Sources at the UN Environment Programme (Unep) said that countries unhappy with Solheimâs conduct were holding back tens of millions of dollars, threatening a financial crisis at the body.
Millions worldwide may be unable to access the drug by 2030, scientists predict
About 40 million people who will need insulin to manage their type 2 diabetes in 12 yearsâ time will not get it unless access to the drug is significantly improved, according to new research.
Diagnoses of type 2 diabetes are soaring worldwide, linked to the obesity epidemic. Not all of those diagnosed will need insulin, which is essential to keep people with type 1 diabetes alive, including UK prime minister Theresa May. But a study in the Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology journal shows that 79 million people with type 2 will need it by 2030 and that half of them will not be able to get it. About 33 million people who need insulin currently do not have access to the drug.

President praises decision by organisers to replace comedians with historians after Michelle Wolf took aim at him last year
President Donald Trump has suggested he might attend the White House correspondentsâ dinner after organisers said they would feature a historian, not a comedian, at its annual event to be held next spring.

Architectural photographer Cody Ellingham takes to the streets of Tokyo and Shanghai to reveal secrets old and new
With his moody night-time shots of urban environments, New Zealand-born photographer Cody Ellingham tries to tap into the current of a city, to travel forward into its future or retreat into the past.
Ellingham, a creative based in Tokyo, came to photography while travelling through northern Japan shortly after it was devastated by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Volunteering in the town of Otsuchi-Cho in Iwate, he was moved to capture on camera the foundations of buildings and towns that had been exposed in the disaster and streets that no longer existed. Shooting with a Sony a7RII camera fitted with specialist architectural lenses, he began sharing his work on Instagram as @cbje_tokyo in earnest in 2016.
On Sunday, Romans will vote in a referendum to address a failing transport system that lags behind virtually all European capitals
The images were dramatic: a packed escalator giving way, hurtling dozens of passengers violently downward at Romeâs Repubblica metro station.
To many of the cityâs residents, however, the 23 October accident was hardly shocking. The explosion of a bus in May on the central shopping street Via del Tritone was no less than the 10th bus to blow up in Rome this year. And although there were no reported injuries, there were 22 bus blasts last year and 14 in 2016, most of which were blamed on short circuits.
Due to its unparalleled exposure to natural disasters, Manizales in central Colombia is globally recognised for its innovative approach to prevention and response
On the evening of 13 November 1985, Luz Estrella ArĂas was at home with her young daughter in Rio Claro, a hamlet in Caldas in the heart of Colombiaâs coffee region. When she heard the roar, at first she thought it was a truck overturning. Then she heard the screams.
âMy first instinct was to stay in the house,â she says. âMy husband had a prize cockerel that we couldnât afford to lose. But then the water started coming in, so I grabbed my daughter and stepped outside. The water swept me off my feet, but I managed to grab a coffee plant and hang on.â She swings from one of the pillars of her porch, recreating the gesture.
The Iberian escape features in Goopâs Christmas gift catalogue and has attracted interest from those looking for a rural retreat
With Gwyneth Paltrow we have learned to expect the unexpected, so it is not surprising that the woman who gave us jade vagina eggs and coffee suppositories should produce an eccentric Christmas gift catalogue on her website, Goop.
Knowingly titled The Ridiculous But Awesome Gift Guide, suggested gifts include a HermĂ¨s surfboard, a banana lamp, an Aston Martin and, for the environmentally conscious billionaire, a zero-emissions yacht. Oh, and an entire Spanish village.
Fiona Onasanya accused in court of colluding with brother over speeding ticket
A Labour MP facing allegations of deliberately misleading the police over a speeding ticket has been accused in court of colluding with her brother to protect her political career.

Amid the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, the Houthis show no sign of giving up
The Saudi- and United Arab Emirates-led coalition fighting in Yemen is under unprecedented pressure from the international community to end its involvement in the war after the killing of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Since the coalition intervened in 2015, Yemen has become the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, according to the UN. Rights groups say up to 59,000 people have been killed, half of the 28 million-strong population are starving and the country has the worst cholera epidemic in modern history.
Children tell of being starved and beaten in camps part-funded by British government
Child refugees are facing abuse and malnutrition in a network of 26 Libyan detention centres the British government is helping to fund, the Guardian has learned.
In the first accounts to the media from minors being held in the camps, the children described being starved, beaten and abused by Libyan police and camp guards. One said the conditions were like âhell on earthâ.
This yearâs Royal Institute of British Architects prize goes to the timber and mud-brick Children Village, which doesnât need air-con even in 45 degree heat
A forest of eucalyptus columns extends inside the expansive dormitory complex of the CanuanĂŁ school in northern Brazil, as if the nearby woodland has taken over the building. Between the soaring trunks stand clusters of little mud-brick rooms arranged around open courtyards, while a wafer-thin metal canopy floats above the whole scene, providing merciful shade in the sweltering heat.
This is the Children Village, designed by young architects Aleph Zero with designer Marcelo Rosenbaum, named this yearâs winner of the RIBA international prize for the best building in the world. It is an unlikely accolade to find bestowed on a remote school in a far-flung part of Brazil, designed by a duo in their early 30s who had built little more than a couple of private houses and a few installations before landing this commission.
Brian Hartzer appears before banking royal commission following revelations former CBA chairman âdid not agree to return any of his feesâ. Follow all the developments live

Renuka Chaudhary has said she is fearful for her young daughter's future after her husband died while helping to construct a stadium for the World Cup 2022.
Tej Narayan Tharu died in August when he fell from a high walkway at the ÂŁ512m Al Wakrah stadium, being built for the tournament in Qatar in four years time.
After cremating Tharu's body near their home in Nepal, Chaudhary told the Guardian: 'Iâm so worried. We have no one to earn money for the family now. How can I pay for [our daughterâs] education and raise her?'
Nepali worker Tej Narayan Tharu died at al-Wakrah Stadium
Qatari authorities say they have taken âcorrective measuresâ
Tej Narayan Tharuâs family cremated him by the banks of the Budhu river in southeast Nepal. His wife, Renuka Chaudhary, wailed in despair. She circled the red coffin before tossing sugar, mustard seeds and barley on to the pyre to purify it. As the flames engulfed her husbandâs body, she collapsed and was carried away.
Chaudhary and the coupleâs four-year-old daughter, Sadikshya,spoke to her husband by phone every two or three days, until the day they received a call from Qatar from a number she did not recognise. Tharu, 23, died in August when he fell from a high walkway at the ÂŁ512m al-Wakrah stadium, being built for the 2022 World Cup.
Report reveals widespread neglect in institutions across the country, yet fierce discrimination means such children may be at risk of being killed if they remain in their communities
Behind the gates of an orphanage at the end of a dirt road on Nairobiâs outskirts, more than 30 children are being given plates of rice and beans in a stuffy room that smells as though it serves as dining room, physical therapy room and toilet. The scent of the food does little to mask the overpowering smell of faeces and urine.
Babies lie on worn, stained mattresses. Beside them, four children are tied in standing positions in order to âstrengthen their legsâ, the physiotherapist says. One boy is in visible pain, screaming and reaching out to one of the care-givers. This session will last two hours. One boy restrained in a chair is being spoon-fed by a staff member, who then slaps the childâs face.
Independent inquiry finds serious failure of management over GaĂŤtan Mootoo, who felt âabandonedâ by the organisation
Amnesty International failed to support a researcher who killed himself in his Paris office after feeling âabandoned and neglectedâ by the organisation, according to an investigation.
The independent inquiry commissioned by Amnesty into the death of GaĂŤtan Mootoo concluded that multiple failings to support the employee of three decades amounted to âa serious failure of managementâ.
Hungary appears to have given special treatment to disgraced former Macedonian PM
Macedoniaâs former prime minister Nikola Gruevski, who fled the country last week rather than report to jail to serve a two-and-a-half-year sentence for corruption, announced on Tuesday that he had been granted political asylum in Hungary.
He wrote on his Facebook page that he had been the victim of a âpolitical witch-huntâ in Macedonia and that Hungarian authorities had granted his request for asylum. Earlier in the day the Hungarian government-linked Magyar IdĂśk newspaper wrote that Gruevskiâs application had been approved. Hungarian authorities made no official comment on the matter.
Populism is sexy. Particularly since 2016 â the year of the Brexit referendum and the election of Donald Trump â it seems as if journalists just cannot get enough of it. In 1998, the Guardian published about 300 articles that included the terms âpopulismâ or âpopulistâ. In 2015, these terms were used in about 1,000 articles, and one year later this number had doubled to almost 2,000.
The increasing popularity of the term is no coincidence. Populist parties have tripled their vote in Europe over the past 20 years. They are in government in 11 European countries. More than a quarter of Europeans voted populist in their last elections.
The US and its would-be allies, including Australia, lack a coherent, joined-up plan to counter Beijingâs growing sway
The unusually rumbustious Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit that shuddered to an ill-tempered halt at the weekend proved one thing beyond any doubt: the US and China are intent on doing to the Indo-Pacific region in the 21st century what the US and the Soviet Union did to Europe in the last. Namely, use it as the primary battleground in a global turf war for power and influence.
The jousting superpowers â described by Peter OâNeill, Papua New Guineaâs prime minister and Apec host, as the the âtwo big giantsâ in the room â managed to turn what is supposed to be a peaceable platform for advancing multilateral cooperation into a noisy reprise of Captain America versus the Evil Empire. This is not what Bob Hawke and Paul Keating had in mind when Apec was launched in Canberra in 1989.
The president claims the US should have âcaughtâ the al-Qaida leader earlier, but that ignores basic details of the raid
Donald Trump has repeated his claim that Osama bin Laden, who was killed by US Navy Seals in May 2011, should have been captured much earlier, seeking once again to blame Pakistan and his political rivals at home.
Of course we should have captured Osama Bin Laden long before we did. I pointed him out in my book just BEFORE the attack on the World Trade Center. President Clinton famously missed his shot. We paid Pakistan Billions of Dollars & they never told us he was living there. Fools!..
In 2010, a plane crash in Russia killed Polandâs president and plunged its prime minister Donald Tusk into crisis. Agata PopÄda and Daniel Boffey discuss how this incident still affects Tuskâs political career today. Plus: film-maker Mike Leigh on the 1819 Peterloo Massacre
In 2010, a plane crash in Russia killed Polandâs rightwing president, Lech KaczyĹski, and plunged the countryâs centrist prime minister into a crisis.
That man, Donald Tusk, went on to become president of the European council, a key player in Britainâs struggle to extract itself from the EU. On Sunday, he will chair the critical summit on Brexit. But away from Brusselsâ bargaining rooms, Tusk remains locked in a bitter feud with his political rivals in Poland. Agata PopÄda and Daniel Boffey join Anushka Asthana to discuss the details.
Donald Trump has defended his daughter Ivanka Trump over revelations she used a private email account for work in the White House. Trump said Ivankaâs emails âwerenât classified like Hillary Clintonâsâ and he said none of the emails were ever deleted. Trump made the comments as he left the White House for Mar-a-Lago for the Thanksgiving holiday
Donald Trump said the CIA had never made a determination about who killed the Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi. Trump was questioned at the White House about his decision not to further punish Saudi Arabia for the death of the US-based columnist for The Washington Post, who has been critical of the kingdom. He said oil prices would 'skyrocket' if the US made a 'terrible mistake' to break with Saudi Arabia. Trump said he was only focused on 'putting America first'
Newly released video shows the dramatic moment firefighters rescued three people and two dogs as thick smoke and flames bore down on them in southern California. The Los Angeles fire department released the film of a helicopter crew rescuing the group on Tuesday
Hundreds of families who lost their homes in the devastating Northern California wildfires stay in tents and cars at makeshift camps in shopping centre car parks. One young family is living with two young children in a van parked outside Walmart in Chico. Evacuee Alisha Anstrom said: 'I'm trying to stay as strong as I can for them. It's really hard to deal with though. I really just want to break down.' They're unsure if their house is still standing after being evacuated nearly two weeks ago
PNGâs security forces have gone on a destructive rampage through the countryâs Parliament House. âThe situation is quite tenseâ, opposition MP Bryan Kramer says inside parliament. âNumerous staff of parliament were assaultedâ. Security forces and police say they have not been paid their allowances from the Apec conference which was held in the country over the weekend.
A gunman killed three people at a hospital in Chicago, authorities say. The shooter also died in the incident. Shots were fired Monday afternoon at Mercy hospital on the city's South Side. Witnesses described âmass chaosâ after a âgun battleâ erupted in the hospital
