Part friend, part virtual butler – we just can’t do without our voice-technology assistants. They’re in our smartphones, in our homes, in our cars. They’re activated by simply hearing our voices, and – over time – they get to know us. They become familiarised with our vocal timbre, learn to understand our tastes and grow alongside us with every passing day. They guide us, assist us and liberate us. Because
Would you be surprised to learn that people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70% of the time? This fact certainly flies in the face of traditional thinking.
What is it that makes the difference? Emotional intelligence, that’s what – a critical, if rather intangible factor which exists in each of us to a greater or lesser extent. And there’s the rub; we are not all blessed with innate EQ. However, thankfully, it can be learned.
Artisans, tailors and small business owners? Sure, but that’s not all. Italy’s luxury sector has left the era of thumbtacks, measuring tape and hand-drawn sketches behind and is now showing its pedigree in the world of business 2.0.

Milan is a lively, constantly changing city, full of things to do and discover. But every once in a while, it’s a good idea to take a break from the frenzy, especially in the summer, when the city can become uncomfortably hot. Luckily, there’s no need for a major (and costly) trip, because the area around Milan offers plenty of ideas. That’s not surprising: Lombardy is the Italian region with the highest number of UNESCO sites (11, as of now). But there’s also no shortage of alternatives outside of the region. Here are our suggestions.
Print it out. Use the Europass format. Keep it brief. Add a photo. Write it in two different languages. Make sure you get it all on one page.
