Speaking the right language

11 Mar 2024  |  lsj.com.au
In Australia, where a significant portion of the population is born overseas and speaks a language other than English at home, multilingualism is becoming increasingly recognized as an asset in the legal profession. Lawyers like Linda Huan and Colin Yuan, who speak Mandarin, find that their language skills enhance their ability to serve clients and understand business cultures. However, the legal field remains predominantly monolingual and monocultural, with multilingualism often serving as a proxy for a diverse, non-white background, which can be a barrier to entry and acceptance. Despite the advantages of multilingual lawyers in servicing local communities and conducting cross-border transactions, the profession still largely favors white, Anglo-Celtic, Australian-accented individuals, especially in leadership roles. The article suggests that embracing linguistic diversity could improve the profession's ability to uphold justice and better serve a multicultural population.

Current WA Premier Mark McGowan, who was responsible for the mint between 2017 and 2021, stated that the government had allocated $34 million to address these issues. The Perth Mint has taken steps to limit new accounts and close dormant ones in MSCC-compliant US states, asserting that no US investors have been harmed.

Hiring from outside one's industry can be beneficial by introducing new skills, perspectives, and enthusiasm to the workplace. Transferable 'soft' skills, such as communication and adaptability, are often more valuable than industry-specific experience. Manual review of resumes and detailed interviews can help identify candidates with relevant transferable skills. With some training, new hires from different industries can quickly adapt and potentially offer more growth than those with longer industry tenure.

01 Jun 2020  |  South China Morning Post
In Hong Kong, 80% of couples rely on condoms for birth control due to their affordability, accessibility, and lack of side effects. Dr. Joyce Lai explains that many prefer condoms as they require no medical intervention. Research indicates that long-acting reversible contraceptives (Larcs) like IUDs and implants are more effective and popular when women receive thorough contraceptive counseling. Despite their higher effectiveness, personal preferences and concerns about side effects influence contraceptive choices. Various contraceptive methods, including implants, IUDs, patches, rings, and diaphragms, offer different levels of effectiveness and convenience.

Is fertility hereditary?

18 Oct 2016  |  bodyandsoul
Fertility is not strictly hereditary, and there is no infertility gene passed through generations. However, conditions like endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which can affect fertility, sometimes run in families. Research indicates that women with a close relative with endometriosis are more likely to be diagnosed with it, and immediate female relatives of women with PCOS have a higher chance of having the condition. Genetics may also play a role in the rate of decline in egg quality and number with age, as evidenced by the correlation between early menopause in mothers and daughters. Experts suggest that while genetics can influence fertility, factors such as advanced maternal age have a more significant impact.

Positive peer feedback is vital for their buying decisions, and they favor the term 'deal' over 'sale'. Retailers are warned to adapt to Gen-Y's technological preferences or risk obsolescence.
