Everybody knows that China is the world’s fastest growing economy.

I explain China’s poor performance in my latest AssetBuilder article

Nine Year Old Spends Thousands Without Her Parents Knowing


“You wouldn’t believe what happened at work today,” said my friend, Keith Ferrell.

He helps teachers and students integrate technology into elementary school classrooms.  As we talked over dinner, he shared a crazy (but all too common) story.  A nine-year old girl at his school had spent $3,711 on a variety of online games.  She racked up the bill in just three weeks—right under her parents’ noses.

Your child couldn’t do that?  That’s what her parents thought.  The fourth grader downloaded free apps through iTunes. Dragon Mania Legends was one of her favorites. Her parents’ credit card was linked to her iPad.  At some point, her parents must have used her iPad to make an online purchase. 

After that, the little girl bought whatever game upgrades she wanted.

Why Traveling In Mexico Is Both Safe And Great


OK, if you read U.S. headlines, you wouldn’t visit Mexico.

I get that.  The media smears Mexico.  It’s like reporting on Jennifer Lopez’s looks, but focusing on a wart she might have on one of her toes.  No image or talk of her lovely face and body.

If you think Mexico is dangerous, let me change your mind.  The country has more than its share of beauty. 

And it’s safe.

Psychologically, how could this affect their day to day work?

I explain it, in my latest Globe and Mail article.
