Saudi could want Apple, Google and Microsoft
If all goes to plan, a Saudi Arabian fund will eventually be large enough to buy all four of the world’s largest publicly traded companies – Apple Inc., Google parent company Alphabet Inc., Microsoft Corp. and Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
Saudi Arabia's second-in-line to the throne is creating a $2trillion public investment fund which will be the 'largest on Earth' - as the kingdom prepares for the end of the oil age as prices plummet.

Teenagers Need Social Skills, Not Social Networks
Adolescents who want to get ahead at work need to spend a bit less time on their smartphones and get an awful lot better at studying the codes that come in flesh. They need to read the eyes, the frowns, the corners of a mouth. They need to read the set of a shoulder and a jaw. They need to know when a colleague needs a kind word or some quiet to get on with a deadline. They need to know that when the boss’s face goes red, you can’t just swipe left and move on.
The workplace is changing quickly and young people need real-life human interaction to succeed

Good social skills are essential to promoting precise understanding, in order to promote efficient production, with a minimum amount of conflict toward a maximum of productive inertia.

Today's UK Sinkhole Is In Redruth
If you go back to 1750, the Redruth area was completely different - there were dozens of engine houses and hundreds of shafts in the area, which probably looked a bit like a desert. 'As mines closed, many put very large bits of timber across shafts and backfilled them, thinking this would be safe. Gradually all evidence of the engine houses and covered shafts went and we and builders before us assumed there was nothing there - apart from on the old maps of course. 'The old maps often clearly detail the layout of various mines and where shafts are. It is these maps which mean the difference between buying a house which might fall down a hole, or one which sits on firm ground.
When the latest mine opened up in Scorrier, an enterprising local rigged a camera to a drone and sent it above the shaft to show how deep it really is.

Today's UK Sinkhole Is In Aylesbury
The hole, which is more than six feet deep, appeared in front of a house in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, in November when home owner Emma James was mowing the lawn and felt the ground was spongy. The 45-year-old said: “It was giving way as I was standing on it and there was clearly a little hole there so we got a shovel to move the grass roots and it just caved in. "It was a bit scary and we all jumped back but when we looked down we couldn't see anything.
A FAMILY has been left mystified after a huge hole opened up in their garden - revealing something even more unexpected.

Even Amazon Will Be Swallowed Up
The most successful firms are merely small boats bobbing on the surface of a great and treacherous ocean. Others will take their place as new markets open. It will happen to Intel. It will happen to Amazon, too. And when it does, it’s unlikely to be a result of a lax corporate culture or employees who weren’t prepared to work weekends.
“The Everything Store” sounds like a pretty brutal place to work. An in-depth report by the New York Times on Amazon last year exposed a culture of borderline harassment from line managers, stupidly long hours, vicious evaluation sessions, a high staff turnover rate and a cult-like atmosphere personally imposed by the internet firm’s founder Jeff Bezos.

U.S. Must Have Higher Min. Wage/ Boosted Benefits
Growth in Europe, as well as Japan, has been a major disappointment since the global financial crisis. The world outlook is vulnerable amid China's slowing growth, which has been a major hit to oil and commodity exporting countries, including Brazil and Russia.
EUROPE's economy is in a worse state than previously thought, shock figures revealed today, as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) urged the bloc to do more to tackle problems amid an increased risk of a global financial crisis.

Belgian Nuclear Power Plants Evacuated
Two nuclear power plants in Belgium have been evacuated after explosions tore through Brussels Airport and metro this morning. The Tihange power plant, an hour's drive from the Belgian capital in the province of Liege, and the Doel power plant in Antwerp have been cleared amid heightened fears of another attack.

Today's UK Sinkhole Is In Lanarkshire
A group of homeowners were forced to evacuate their homes after a massive sinkhole appeared in their street overnight.   
The enormous hole suddenly developed just yards from the front doors of three detached properties in Plains, Lanarkshire.
The crater covers a large section of road and is estimated to be 30ft wide and 10ft deep.

Fukushima Clean-Up Is Taking Forty Years
Removal of nuclear fuel from power plant that suffered triple meltdown following 2011 tsunami could take 40 years or more. Radioactive fuel in three reactors melted down after the tsunami knocked out the plant’s cooling system on 11 March 2011. Tepco is persisting with the government’s roadmap for the Fukushima cleanup, which envisions fuel removal to begin in 2021 and end between 30 and 40 years later, at an estimated cost of almost $20bn (£14bn).
