I have flown a lot for a very long time.
And still, I am not sick of it.
OK, that period of flying to America every week got to me, but generally, I love the feeling of flying – even though now, as a Dad, it makes me slightly more panicky just in case something happens.
I have to say of all the flights I do, long-haul are my favourite.
Part of this is because I sleep very, very easily on planes and so I get more rest on a plane than I do at home.
Part of this is because I get to watch movies uninterrupted, something that stopped happening when Otis was born.
Part of this is long-haul flights are my ‘normal’, so I don’t see them as long – just flying.
But of all the planes I have flown, I never got to do it on…

WHAT IS INVESTMENT?
The money you earn is partly spent and the rest saved for meeting future expenses. Instead of keeping the savings idle you may like to use savings in order to get returns on it in the future. This is called Investment.
WHY SHOULD ONE INVEST ?
One needs to invest to:
• earn return on your idle resources
• generate a specified sum of money for a specific goal in life
• make a provision for an uncertain future
One of the important reasons why one needs to invest wisely is to meet the cost of Inflation.
Inflation is the rate at which the cost of living increases. The cost of living is simply what it costs to buy the goods and services you need to live. Inflation causes money to lose value because it will not buy the same amount of a good or a service…

Will the Milan Starbucks tempt Italians inside? Photo: Starbucks Starbucks claims its Milan branch, which opens to the public this week, is “the world’s most beautiful”. So what does it look like? The flagship “Reserve Roastery” is located inside a former stock exchange and post office near Milan’s cathedral.
The American company, whose founder Howard Schultz claims to have been inspired to start his empire by a trip to Milan, says the cafe was designed as “a tribute to the Italian coffee culture that helped shape Starbucks and a celebration of everything the company has learned over the years about the art and science of coffee”.
Beans are roasted onsite in a giant, Italian-made coffee roaster.
The beans travel to this giant, rotating cask. We’re not sure what it’s for but Starbucks says it “periodically unfolds and rotates, like a blooming flower”. Ok then.
A board displays the blends available.
The Milan Starbucks also features what the company calls its “first ever affogato station”, where staff use liquid nitrogen to make ice cream based on the traditional Italian dessert of of gelato topped with espresso.
Bread is baked onsite in partnership with Italian baker Rocco Princi.
Outside is a terrace featuring seating in giant “bird cages” as well as a mermaid, the company’s logo, carved in Carrara marble.
Upstairs is a cocktail bar serving alcoholic drinks and aperitivi.
Hot drinks will be served in crockery, unless customers request a cup to go, while cold drinks will be served in single-use plastic cups – to the disappointment of environmental campaigners who had challenged Starbucks to avoid the use of disposable cups in Italy.

What is stock exchange?
The stock exchange or market is a place where stocks, shares and other long-term commitments or investment are bought and sold.
The economic significance of a stock market results from the increased marketability resulting from a stock exchange share quotation.
