A significant yet under-researched area in intercultural business communication is the impact of our emotions on our business partners.
What do you say during your last few minutes "on Earth"? Things will break. We will not. How I know that I just can't say. I think it's because we prefer to laugh more than we like just about anything else. Even science. Even being astronauts for a year during NASA's longest planned Mars simulation.
There is an emerging Greek tragedy. Not the familiar and ongoing financial troubles concerning Greece and the EU, but rather a catastrophe on a truly worldwide scale: an emerging mass extinction of life - the sixth such crisis in Earth's history.
The villa's basalt slabs, formed from ancient volcanic activity, emerge organically from the cliff and dramatically frame the distant mountains.
Witnessing red-hot lava explode from an erupting volcano has always been on my personal bucket list. But since volcanic eruptions are unpredictable and rare, it was one natural wonder I assumed I'd never see.
I'm dangling above a tree stand in Costa Rica about to zip line 500 feet above the lush forest floor at 40mph, one gloved hand on my karabiner and another on what I've been assured is a brake.
Strong northwest winds blew ash and dust from the 1912 eruption of Novarupta over parts of Kodiak Island on Thursday, limiting visibility and prompting some airlines to cancel flights.
If you're familiar with geothermal energy, you know most existing geothermal projects rely on high-temperature permeable rock relatively near the surface that has its own naturally occurring water supply.
I just spent 10 days vacationing in a community whose existence is threatened by a slow-moving wave of hot molten rock, and ever since I got home, I haven't been able to stop thinking about tiny Pahoa. There's more to this town than you might think.
We are on the crater's edge of a volcano; the highest point. We are in a metal framed tent; rubber soled shoes in the fly. We are on an open plane; the highest object. We forgot a welcome sign.
Hawaii is so damn photogenic, that going back half a century, there's usually been at least one TV show based there. Visuals like this are bound to inspire even more.
While the artists at Pixar obviously found a way to make a volcano look personable and appealing, there was still the matter of selling the audience on the size of this character and the overall scale of this short.
Whether you are looking to write, scout or shoot (the Icelandic Film Centre offers a 20 percent rebate if you meet certain "cultural criteria"), put Reykjavik and RIFF in your filmmaking bucket list.
MSNBC ratings have been declining for a while, and CNN has been making slight gains in its audience size. Now is not the time to begin "reducing spending," certainly not if you're trying to maximize "growth and profitability."
As the morbid and jaded creatures we are, humans really get a kick out of pondering our species' ultimate demise. It's time we give some love to more obscure, but still scientifically plausible means of extinction.
