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

Here are some simple tips to help you improve your cross cultural communication skills:

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.

Mike Pompeo to meet King Salman amid reports Riyadh may admit journalist was killed in Istanbul consulate
The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, has arrived in Saudi Arabia for talks with King Salman over the disappearance of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, as reports emerged that Riyadh was poised to acknowledge that Khashoggi was killed in its consulate in Istanbul.
Pompeo landed in Riyadh on Tuesday morning and was due to meet the king immediately to discuss the crisis surrounding Khashoggi, who vanished two weeks ago during a visit to the Istanbul consulate. He made no remarks upon landing.
China on defensive over camps where ex-prisoners have told of arbitrary detention, abuse and indoctrination
A senior official in Xinjiang has described mass internment camps for Muslim minorities as âtrainingâ and âboarding schoolsâ where residents receive vocational, legal, and language training as well as âde-extremisation educationâ.
Beijing has faced growing international criticism for its crackdown in Xinjiang, a far north-western territory of China where it holds as many as a million Muslims prisoner in camps. Former detainees have said that they were subjected to political indoctrination and abuse.
In a rare, detailed interview published by the state-run news agency Xinhua, the Xinjiang governor, Shohrat Zakir, said: âXinjiang conducts vocational skills education and training according to law. The purpose is to fundamentally eliminate the environment and soil that breeds terrorism and religious extremism, and eliminate the terrorism activities before they take place.â
The prime minister is expected to plead with EU leaders to drop their Irish backstop proposal at a make-or-break summit dinner on Wednesday night after seeking the support of members of her cabinet on Tuesday morning.
Representatives from 13 Middle Eastern and North African embassies in Australia have condemned Scott Morrisonâs signal that the Australian embassy could be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, declaring it a âfatal mistakeâ that could lead to a breakdown in economic relations with Arab and Muslim nations.
With Indonesia also expressing concern at the development, Izzat Salah Abdulhadi, the head of the Palestinian delegation to Australia, said at the conclusion of an emergency meeting in Canberra on Tuesday that people âwere really angry, really frustrated, and disappointed with this policyâ.
WikiLeaks founder told by Ecuadorian embassy to respect rules or lose diplomatic asylum
Ecuador has laid out a stringent new set of house rules for Julian Assange, warning the whistleblower to avoid online comments about political issues â and ordering him to clean his bathroom and take better care of his cat, or risk losing his pet.
Assange, who has been living in Ecuadorâs UK embassy since June 2012, must obtain approval for all visitors from diplomatic staff three days in advance. He is expressly banned from activities which could be âconsidered as political or interfering with the internal affairs of other states,â according to the memo seen by the Guardian.
Government blames âadministrative errorâ for decision to support motion put up by anti-immigrant party
Australiaâs government has been forced into an embarrassing re-vote in parliament after it supported a far-right motion declaring âItâs OK to be whiteâ.
The ruling Liberal-National Coalition blamed an âadministrative errorâ for its senatorsâ decision to vote in favour of the motion on Monday, which had been put forward by Pauline Hanson, the leader of the anti-immigration One Nation party.
Scheme ignores demands that Trump pays for new school and local facilities, say objectors
A record number of people have objected to plans by the Trump Organization to build a large new housing estate near the US presidentâs golf course north of Aberdeen.
More than 3,000 people have submitted formal objections to the plans, with another 19,000 people signing an online petition protesting against the scheme to build 550 private homes and golfersâ chalets on farmland beside the course.
The planned ceremony has angered Fox News and right-wing commentators, which is exactly the point says the organiser
A coven of witches will gather in an occult bookstore in Brooklyn, New York, on Saturday to place a hex on supreme court justice Brett Kavanaugh. Tickets to the event, which cost $10, with half the proceeds going to womenâs and LGBT charities, have already sold out.
The event is not out of the ordinary for Catland Books, which describes itself as âBrooklynâs premier metaphysical boutique and event spaceâ. They have previously held ceremonies to hex Donald Trump as well as a âhex your exâ ceremony on Valentineâs Day.
Santa Maria Tonantzintla was set to be one of Mexicoâs first smart cities â but residents saw it as an attempt to westernise their town and leave tradition behind
Lupita Tecual Porquillo had heard a rumour that the plaza was going to be âremodelledâ. The 51-year-old grocery store owner lives around the corner from the centre of Santa Maria Tonantzintla, a sleepy town in the state of Puebla, about three hours from Mexico City. She assumed âremodellingâ meant repairing the plazaâs centuries-old cobblestone pavement.
In November 2017, heavy machinery arrived to tear out the characteristic cobblestones and replace them with smooth, uniform stone tiles. On 11 January, Tecual Porquillo discovered the municipality had also knocked down the clock tower and stucco bridge â both beloved landmarks in the central plaza.
Dunkirk is a month into a project that makes it the biggest European city to offer entirely free public transport to residents and visitors alike. So what do people think?
One month after the French channel port of Dunkirk introduced free public transport for all, a small revolution is taking place.
Two women, perfect strangers until now, are chatting across the aisle about nothing in particular. One admits she sometimes takes the bus âjust for the fun of itâ. A young man wearing headphones is charging his mobile in a socket just above the ârequest stopâ button.
The city has more than 1,400 tianguis â open-air markets that operate on certain days of the week â and many have been around for centuries. Professor Joseph Heathcott uses satellite images to highlight these unique spaces
The new Asian Town mall was designed to cater to Qatarâs roughly 2 million migrant workers â but critics say it is simply a way to segregate them
At first glance, it is like any other entertainment complex in Qatar: a giant shopping mall, a multiplex cinema and an amphitheatre for musical shows. But there are no high-end boutiques, no women âŚ and no Qataris.
Welcome to Asian Town, an entertainment and shopping venue in the heart of the largest labour camp in Qatar, on the outskirts of the capital, Doha. Each day, thousands of young men gather here from the workersâ dormitories that stretch out into the desert for miles around, to enjoy mutton curries, Bollywood films or just a sanctuary from the searing heat.
Survivors of violence, rape and domestic abuse had a path to recourse through the US visa system. Now that is under threat
Yolanda Vzarona was kidnapped at knifepoint by a jilted former boyfriend. He stripped her naked and drove her into the mountains near San Diego. He raped her; he said if she told anyone heâd kill her children. After hours of pleading, she convinced him to let her go. âIâll never be the same woman,â she said of that day of terror, more than 10 years ago.
But what happened next may have been even more difficult: despite being an undocumented immigrant, Varona called the police. She helped law enforcement find her attacker and put him in jail. And she went to court to testify.
Rolling coverage of the dayâs political developments as they happen
More from the Guardianâs Brussels bureau chief Daniel Boffey. On the basis of an EU briefing, he thinks Theresa May should get ready to hear some hard truths in Brussels this week.
Gloomy by EU official. If all gone well Sun, a joint political declaration would have been on table at the leaders dinner. "Since there is no agreement on the Irish backstop there will not be an outline of joint pol dec on table on Wed evening..it will not change before Wed"
Theresa May will address the 27 EU leaders on the third floor of the Europa, before the rest of them move on to their dinner on Wednesday evening. There is zero suggestion that anything Theresa May says will turn the dial, and lead to a political response by the 27.
Asked whether Donald Tusk would be concerned not to disrespect Theresa May, after the Salzburg fiasco, an EU official says that "telling the truth" is not being disrespectful. Fear that the PM might hear some more hard truths this week.
EU official on whether this remains the moment of truth summit: "Clearly we are not in the place we wanted to be in Octm so from that perspective that truth is... we have clarity actually... More clarity now than in Sept in Salzburg"...
.. "what we have found out in the process leading to this meeting on wed is that it is not going to be so easy to find a deal between the EU and the UK", the Eu official adds.
On Theresa May's domestic volatility, and whether this will play into EU response. Official says that they held back from a "brutal and early" knock back on Chequers.. But while choreography can be led by politics, substance cannot. A message will be sent on the Irish backstop.
There has been nothing since Raab visit. The hope had been an agreement on Monday... and that progress has proven illusory..
Basic pay jumped by 3.1% per year in the three months to August, the fastest rate since the depths of the financial crisis in 2009, my colleague Graeme Wearden reports. He has more on this and on the unemployment figures (it remains at 4% - a 43-year low) on his business live blog.
Zero tolerance has left asylum seekers literally suspended between two countries â with some camping outside for days
Gateway International Bridge is one of three bridges across the Rio Grande between the Mexican city of Matamoros and Brownsville, Texas, that forms a metropolis spanning two countries.
Southbound, cars and people trickle virtually unimpeded into Mexico. Northbound, cars line up bumper to bumper while crowds of pedestrians snake along the sidewalk to join the queue for the US port of entry. On this sidewalk, at the Mexico end of the bridge, is a cluster of visibly frazzled refugees, some with folding chairs and tables and others lying on thin rugs on the ground, sheltering in the shadow cast by a nearby customs building.
Recreational marijuana will be legal throughout the country, but rules will vary from province to province
Canada will this week become the second country in the world to legalise recreational marijuana, but as they negotiate a patchwork of new legislation and inconsistent enforcement, smokers may soon find that their enjoyment of weed is still blunted.
New rules governing cannabis use are different in each of the countryâs ten provinces and three territories, and campaigners warn that experimentation could still result in hefty fines â or even arrest.
Further purchase of luxurious cars for regional summit in impoverished country is greeted with anger and disbelief
Papua New Guinea has reportedly added three Bentleys to its controversial fleet of luxury cars purchased for the upcoming Apec leadersâ summit in November.
Papua New Guineans reacted with outrage to the news that the PNG government had bought 40 Maseratis for the summit despite the country struggling with a nationwide polio outbreak, increased rates of tuberculosis and chronic funding shortages for health, education and other services.
Young people talk about how it feels to grow up in 2018, from dealing with racism in New York and fighting for LGBT rights in Jakarta to facing exam pressures in the Kenyan Rift Valley and the importance of giving back to society in Delhi
Every other minute, a woman or girl dies as a result of pregnancy complications or childbirth. Why has the global decline in maternal mortality stalled?
According to the latest UN global estimates, 303,000 women a year die in childbirth, or as a result of complications arising from pregnancy. This equates to about 830 women dying each day â roughly one every two minutes.
The philanthropist warns that stability in Africa makes a huge difference to the world, and that investing in the health and education of its young people is vital
What worries Bill Gates most? The booming population of Africa looms over his foundationâs latest global survey. By the end of this century there will be 4 billion more people on Earth â and 3 billion of these extra souls will be born in Africa. The challenge, he says, is that âAfrica must almost quadruple its agricultural productivity to feed itself. Thatâs very daunting.â
The philanthropist is torn between sending out a message of hope and a message of fear when I meet him at his foundationâs spacious campus in the heart of his hometown, Seattle.
In a country where one in four women have a child by 19, and health workers offering birth control have been met by men with machetes, confronting myths about contraception is vital
A woman lies on her back, a one-year-old straddling her. One hand is over her eyes, the other held out. A nurse gently inserts a small white strip of contraceptive implant into her upper arm while her baby plays on her. They beckon me in. Privacy hardly seems to be an issue here.
I am in a tent in Rwibale, in the Kyenjojo district of Uganda. We have driven for about five hours from Kampala to get here. It is a place that Prosper Kigumire, who is showing me around, describes as âperi-ruralâ. It seems rural enough, a village â if that. I am with the mobile outreach team of Marie Stopes International. âI have four children so this does not hurt,â says Monica, the women who is getting the implant. âI have no husband.â
Pundits say the senatorâs revelation of her ancestry â a rebuke to Trump â is a sure sign of her 2020 plans
More conclusively than it tells us anything about her genetic heritage, Senator Elizabeth Warrenâs neatly choreographed release of her own DNA analysis makes one thing abundantly clear: sheâs running for the White House in 2020.
Thatâs the primary takeaway from political pundits in the wake of a slick, five-minute campaign video, in which the firebrand liberal from Massachusetts openly discussed her family background, specifically her Native American ancestry. Technically it was released by her Senate campaign against the Republican Geoff Diehl, but itâs clear it has nothing to do with that race, which Warren is expected to win handily.
Its vast oil reserves â it claims to have about 260bn barrels still to extract â afford the most obvious advantage. The kingdom is the worldâs largest oil exporter, pumping or shipping about 7m barrels a day, and giving Riyadh huge clout in the global economy because it wields power to push up prices.
Tracking right to lure AfD voters while rocking the boat in the coalition government turned off moderate Germans
It is, as Der Spiegel said, as if the all-conquering Bayern MĂźnchen, Germanyâs most successful ever football club, had been ignominiously relegated â but with rather more far-reaching consequences.
The CSU, the sister party of Angela Merkelâs CDU, has dominated Bavarian politics for six decades, winning absolute majorities in 12 of the past 13 elections. And it has not done a bad job: the well-heeled home state of BMW and Siemens has the highest employment and lowest crime rate in the country.
The archbishop of Constantinople has granted Ukraineâs wish for a church independent of Moscow
Donald Trump seems strangely in awe of Vladimir Putin. Theresa Mayâs attempts to face down the Kremlin after Salisbury have had limited impact. But has Putin finally met his match in Bartholomew I, the 270th archbishop of Constantinople-New Rome, ecumenical patriarch, and âfirst among equalsâ of the Eastern Orthodox church?
In the 2,000-year struggle between church and state, Barth-olomew chalked up a notable victory last week. Defying protests from the Kremlin and Russiaâs clergy, the archbishop granted Ukraineâs wish to establish an independent church that will no longer answer, as it has since 1686, to the Moscow patriarchate. The decision was taken at a synod at Orthodox âheadquartersâ in Istanbul, formerly Constantinople.
Donald Trump says he has spoken to King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud for about 20 minutes about the Jamal Khashoggi case. The journalist disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, but the US president said it sounded like neither the king nor Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had knowledge of the incident.
Turkish sources have said they believe Khashoggi was killed inside the building and his body removed, allegations that Riyadh dismisses as baseless.
"I sounded to me like maybe there could have been rogue killers - who knows," Trump told reporters at the White House.
US Senator Elizabeth Warren released the results of a DNA analysis on Monday that she said indicated she had some Native American heritage - a direct rebuttal to Donald Trump, who has long mocked her ancestral claims and repeatedly referred to her as Pocahontas.
The Massachusetts Democrat and potential 2020 presidential contender challenged Trump to make good on his pledge to donate $1m to charity if she provided proof of Native American heritage, a moment that was caught on video.
When asked by reporters on Monday whether he would make good on his pledge, the US president said he 'didn't say that'.
A building boom in the capital, Bamako, has sparked a surge in demand for bricks made from high-quality sand dug by hand from the bed of the Niger River. The diggersâ work is poorly paid and carries many dangers, from the treacherous river currents to powerful storms that threaten their fragile craft
Alam is an internationally recognised and award-winning photojournalist, teacher and activist, and has been imprisoned after speaking out on recent student protests in Bangladesh. His work focuses on exposing abuses of power
At least 13 people have died after heavy storms cut off roads and caused rivers to burst their banks in parts of south-west France. The Aude reached levels not seen in more than 100 years, said Vigicrues, the French flooding agency
Pope Francis has made a saint of murdered Salvadoran archbishop Ăscar Romero, one of the most contentious Roman Catholic figures of the 20th century. In a ceremony before tens of thousands of people in St Peterâs Square, Francis declared Romero and Pope Paul VI saints along with five other lesser-known people.
People from across Germany have marched through Berlin to protest against racism, xenophobia and the far right in one of the countryâs biggest rallies of recent years. Organisers put the turnout at 242,000 people. The demonstration on Saturday followed anti-immigration protests in several eastern cities during the summer.
