The team has to prioritize some tasks that are relatively more important than other tasks. To keep up with all their work, employees must not procrastinate.
Governments, teachers and environmentalists consistently tell us to recycle plastic and the importance of 3Rs (i.e. reduce, reuse and recycle).

If not, don’t worry; we’ve got you.
Back in 79 A.D., the lost city in Southern Italy, Pompeii, had been buried by the Vesuvius volcano. The ruins of this ancient Roman city have inspired designers to reimagine the interiors of ancient households in virtual reality (VR).
Medicine is one of the keys to human longevity. Even though we live in an exceptionally medically advanced world, there are still errors and unknown illnesses.

Classic movies made in the 80s—the “Golden Age” of Cantonese movies—like “Nomad” or “My Heart Is That Eternal Rose” greatly reflected Hong Kong’s culture. After all, Hong Kong, despite being a small city, is cultivated with cultures of the East and the West.

Whether you read the book or watched the film, all of us were fascinated by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We wanted to tour around the factory just like the kids with the golden tickets did and get a taste of that chocolate river. But alas, it was all fiction. Much like we’ll never get our own letter to Hogwarts, we’ll also never get a golden ticket, no matter how many bars of chocolate we eat.
Remote work is nothing new, but some of us might have got to experience it for the first time during the pandemic, when companies retreated employees from offices to avoid interpersonal contact.
