Brexit is en route. It may or may not be all it is cracked up to be and we won’t know for sure until B-Day, but Britain needs to posture itself properly. Like any recently divorced or single person, you hope to hell that you bump into your erstwhile partner either with a new and stout suitor, or just magnificent-looking on your own merit. So how do we outsmart the Europeans? Failing a robust trade deal that musters croesan levels of corporate and commercial lucre, discharging from every window of HM’s Treasury, you can count on the denizens of Mayfair and St James’s for a solid dose of sartorial shine instead. Vaingloriously, it is also a point of pride for someone like me that whilst much can be debated over whether Britain flourishes vs the EU on things vegetable, animal or mineral, our heritage with regards to clothing wins hands down. Yes the Italians have their sprezzatura – an industry term for personal touches of swagger that only Neapolitans who look … [Read more...] about What to wear in the run up to Brexit

THE COCAINE THAT WASHES IN FROM THE SEA The last man you come across in Mexico can be found at the following coordinates: 18º 12’ 9” N and 87º 50’ 36” W. He is almost always there working on his rooftop terrace. His name is Don Luis and his home faces the Caribbean Sea beyond the ubiquitous mangrove swamp. If you walk five minutes to the right, you are in a different country, but if you go left, you are in Xcalak in an hour – the first town within the Mexican border. Don Luis is a muscular 58-year-old with dark hair and a moustache, and whose isolated dwelling is situated on one of oddest borders in the world. It is a line that divides a 99-kilometer strip of land into southeast Mexico and Belize, otherwise known as a key, which runs parallel to the Belize coastline. A military base marks the division between the countries. Mexico has 62 kilometers with barely a soul on them while Belize owns 37 kilometers crammed with tourists. The last man in … [Read more...] about The dark side of the Caribbean
Bob Nightengale USA TODAY Published 12:51 PM EDT Jun 27, 2019 LONDON — You can stroll over to Buckingham Palace, go up the 800-foot Shard or travel around town in the Tube but it’s almost impossible to know Major League Baseball is invading London this weekend. Dodging cars while realizing pedestrians don’t always have the right-of-way in London this week, loving the fact you can miss a subway train and the next one is just two minutes away, or that the escalators operate at the speed of sound, USA TODAY Sports looked feverishly for signs of any interest in baseball in London. There was little. A few New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox caps were spotted, and even a Cincinnati Reds T-shirt. But that's it. Did anyone get the memo baseball's fiercest rivalry between the Yankees and Red Sox would be played this weekend at London Stadium – the first MLB games played in Europe? The tabloids were filled with ridicule and sarcasm, … [Read more...] about MLB London Series: Will Brits care about Yankees-Red Sox games?
Emblazoned across a wall at Huawei headquarters is a motto that appears to sum up the attitude of the huge Chinese telecom company toward its multiplying challenges: "Success requires friends. Tremendous success requires enemies." The 32-year-old company faces US criminal lawsuits, a looming cut-off of critical American technology, and unprecedented threats to its globe-spanning business -- a corporate crisis that should provoke fear and anger among employees. But you'd hardly know it in the southern city of Shenzhen, where Huawei's cutting-edge campuses mix kitsch and confidence, and rank-and-file workers regard the crisis with either a shrug or bring-it-on defiance. "There is not much worry about that. We are a strong company and have won against many challenges before," said a Huawei research technician who gave only his surname, Zhang. "Sorry, I must go now," he added cheerfully in perfect English as his team took the court for a boisterous pickup basketball game at a Huawei … [Read more...] about Kitsch and confidence at Huawei HQ despite US pressure
