The Alchemist: Balancing Energy

This month, Karen Gay, holistic health practitioner, discusses the need to balance male and female energies

Demolition Derby

If there’s one thing anyone who knows me can tell you, it’s this: I’m not a good driver. Motorbikes are fine, but put me behind the wheels of a car and it’s a much different story.

Staying Healthy in the Heat

As the thermometer climbs, we need to remind ourselves how to stay healthy in the heat. The danger for some is heat exhaustion, which is a condition whose symptoms may include weakness, headache, dizziness, muscle cramps, nausea or vomiting and rapid heart beat. All of this is a result of your body overheating.

The Costly Typo

One thing that really annoys me is typos (I cringe at the mistakes in people’s resumes and online profiles everyday) and before any of you come banging on my door, I know I make them, too. That annoys me most of all. And while I think typos do cost the maker some money in lost opportunities and credibility, the following are the most expensive typos ever.

When I was 13, I got my first-ever cell phone — a tiny black Nokia phone, with a screen as big as my thumb. Four years later, I’m sitting here with a 4.5-inch screen full-touch smart phone, an iPod containing my favourite 347 songs, and a Fujitsu tablet, its screen capable of spinning 180 degrees.

For years we’ve been told red meat is bad for us, that it is unhealthy and the cause of cancer. Is this really the case? The simple fact is that animal products are only as healthy as the animal they come from.

What to Say in an Interview

It’s not just what you say in a job interview but also what you ask that matters. Answers tell an interviewer what you know, but questions tell them how you think, which is arguably more important. By asking insightful and engaging questions you can separate yourself from the pack and demonstrate more effectively your true value. It also provides you a chance to learn more and really make sure this is a place you want to work.

Travel scams and ripoffs? Check your telco and bank

Vietnam’s scams are real and serious, and definitely shouldn’t be trivialised. But while many travellers will escape the local scammer, only an exceptional traveller escapes another kind of scam — telecommunication company and bank ripoffs. And they’ll hit your wallet a lot more than most of the stuff you’ll encounter in-country.

Apps that could save your life

Okay, so there really is an app for everything. But we don’t want to share with you just any app, we want to look at the most useful right through to the most ridiculously high-tech and multifunctional because you never know when that next emergency situation might occur. Whether it’s finding out where the nearest pizza takeaway is to giving CPR on the street side, we’ve got you covered.
