By Y.Muriel

Did I ever tell you about the time I created my own app? here’s a good story to shown why you shouldn’t stop making things and, why not? You can make your own app.

This was around the time I was living in Barcelona and I used to take the Barcelona underground when I commuted to work. You won’t believe it, but I had to take three lines so I spent travelling more than one hour every day. It was far too much time. What a nightmare!

And because of that, I decided I’d better built my own iPhone Apple app as I needed to change some trains as quickly as possible.

On the first day of my travel with the app, I got to work at 7 am. My boss called me the day before because of a meeting that I had to attend with japan costumers that day at 8.00 am in the head office. Then I logged onto my app account to travel in the underground. It was perfect because I knew what was the best train’s carriage to sit in, in every station. Not only that, I knew which was the best door to sit near to get off one line and run to the other.

What happened to him ten years later?

By Y.Muriel

I explain what happened in this online voice record:

https://vocaroo.com/i/s0tVsUvPvPIc

 

Ten years later, he wrote a mystery thriller book called “The mysterious of the black stone”. He was living in one of the biggest and best hotels near the centre of London when he began to write a story in the room of the hotel.

He thought about a detective story because of his recent past. Effectively, in his recent life he had seen a died man who had a long knife through his heart that pinned him to the floor. So, he knew a lot about thriller stories. Also, he had seen something in a corner of a building, that made his blood turn cold. And others things like that.

He wrote every morning and then, in the afternoons he went for a long walk alone on the open moor where he planned his writing for the next day and when come to him a lot of ideas.

Everything went well. The characters seemed to come alive inside her head. For example, one character was a man who have to change his look like a milkman. Others characters were a farmer who was travelling by train, a hotel-owner and a fisherman.

SAVE SOHO

You can heard me talk about the summary in this web site record voice:

https://vocaroo.com/i/s1YRFDj3anLz

The Save Soho campaign began in 2014 when one of the area’s ninght-clubs, Madame Jojo’s, closed. Last year the club reopened, but the Save Soho campaign goes on, and certainly getting plenty of media attention.

This campaign start because the colourful character of Soho could be under threat  from property development  and gentrification.

http://savesoho.com/

Soho is the area of Central London that lies to the south of Oxford Street, to the east of Regent Street, to the north of Leicester Square and to the west of Charing Cross Road. It only covers one square mile, but it’s a very colourful square mile. Here you will find jazz clubs like Ronnie Scott’s, cafés like Bar Italia, as well as  artists, musicians, GL-BTQ people , film companies and strip joints .

For anybody who feels a bit different, that doesn’t belong, a sense of not being able to belong somewhere, or not being welcome somewhere, Soho has always been a destination. And I think, obviously, the Huguenots, the refugees, the French revolutionaries, later on, you know, the Italian community and then, much more recently, the gay community. It’s an endless sort of turning over of people that I don’t know if it’s…maybe it’s in our DNA now because it’s happened for so long, but there’s a “It’s OK, we can go to Soho, they’ll accept us, it will be OK there.”

Soho has always been a place that’s a sort of overlooked  the rules and regulations, not to the detriment  or danger of anybody, but with a sort of friendly, knowing tolerance for people. I don’t mean criminals, I mean, there are certain places, if you run down  the street with no clothes on that you probably would end up  in the back of a police van; Soho, probably not, probably everybody would applaud because it is like a film set  and it’s the only film set and the only stage  that, as a member of the audience, you get to be part of the cast.

Should higher salaries be limited?

By Y.Muriel

 

In many enterprises, a big number of employees get paid a low wage while a small number of managers earn a high salary.

Some people believe that the high remuneration package of executives, on average 400 times the salary of a blue-collar worker, reduce significantly the profits of the company. More importantly, this management are paid more than their worth. What’s worse, some fat cats bosses can be entitled to large amounts of remuneration even when they are doing badly. Thus, the government should limit this high salaries.

Another people think that this high working conditions are right because this executives have a high responsibility on his work. Consequently, this employees receive a compensation in a way of remuneration package that may include share options, stock options or performance-related bonus. What’s more, they can have a severance package if they are forced to leave the organization.
