- Guardian 08:00August 22, 2019My best shot: Rena Effendi on haymaking in Transylvania‘The light was soft … They were so graceful. They are the last peasants, the last of their kind’ In 2012, I travelled to Transylvania to document what is effectively the last remaining bucolic landscape of Europe. England, for example, has lost most of its hay meadows because of large-scale agriculture, but in Romania this kind of small-scale sustainable way of farming persists. It survived the Ceaușescu regime. It survived the EU. Today, however, it is a vanishing way of life as young people increasingly choose to migrate to western Europe in search of work and faster money. I spent three weeks in Maramureş in the northern Carpathian mountains, exploring life in six tiny hamlets, each with no more than 500 inhabitants. It was August, the height of the haymaking season. Families worked in the fields from dawn to dusk. These women were from a village called Breb. I saw their haystacks from the road as my translator and I drove past. I shouted “stop!” and ran out of the car towards them. They smiled at me, but we didn’t talk, they just carried on with what they were doing. It was late in the day, and they were getting ready to go home. The women wear trousers to make hay because the wind blows their skirts up. Here, they were putting their headscarves and their traditional skirts back on. Then they gathered their baskets, in which they’d brought their lunch, and walked back to the village. I followed. The light was very soft, and the shadows long.Cutting hay and stacking it is physically demanding, I tried doing it myself and failed miserably Continue reading...

- Business Insider 22:23August 21, 2019Saudi Arabia is cracking down on foreign workers, but that may not go over so well inside the kingdomREUTERS/Faisal Nasser Saudi Arabia plans to bar foreign workers from certain jobs as part of an effort to reduce unemployment and the potential for social strife that come with it.
It may take a while for Riyadh to realize the "Saudization" of its workforce, and in the meantime businesses and consumers could feel the strain.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Editor's Note: This article is part of an ongoing series on immigration and integration policy around the world.
Saudi Arabia announced plans late last month to ban foreign workers from certain jobs in the hospitality sector. The move is the latest in a series of policy shifts designed to tackle the kingdom's high unemployment rate by boosting private sector hiring for Saudi citizens, after many years of relying on cheap foreign labor.
But many analysts are skeptical that this policy of "Saudization" will achieve the desired results.
In an email interview with WPR, Omar Al-Ubaydli, the director of research at the Bahrain Center for Strategic, International and Energy Studies, explains why Saudi Arabia is prioritizing new job opportunities for citizens and why its approach is likely to face pushback from both employers and consumers.World Politics Review: What are the Saudi government’s main reasons for restricting employment of foreigners in key sectors of the economy?
Reuters Omar Al-Ubaydli: One of the Saudi government's current policy priorities is creating jobs for nationals. In the past, this was easily achieved by boosting public sector hiring.
The public sector was able to absorb many Saudi nationals due to both the small population and the country's abundance of oil revenues, especially prior to 2014, when oil prices were at record highs. At the same time, migrant workers were brought into the country to plug skills gaps in the labor force—for jobs such as petrochemical engineers, consultants and physicians—and to perform jobs that are seen as undesirable, such as construction labor and street cleaning.
In recent years, sustained population growth has created a youth bulge, while falling oil prices have put significant pressure on state finances. As a result, the public sector can no longer absorb job-seeking nationals like it did before. Moreover, over-staffing in public sector entities has also started to adversely affect their efficiency, creating unnecessary red tape that impedes economic growth. Unemployment is high, at more than 12%, and youth unemployment is at 25%. The government sees youth unemployment as a source of social instability, as well as a breeding ground for extremism.
Part of the government's response to this problem has been to tighten restrictions on the employment of foreigners, based on the belief that foreign workers are a substitute for Saudi nationals. Officials in Riyadh believe that employers will be forced to hire nationals instead. WPR: What kind of pushback is the government facing from the private sector as it moves forward with the "Saudization" of its workforce? What other obstacles does the policy face?
Al-Ubaydli: Individual actors in the Saudi private sector, like private sector organizations all over the world, are not concerned with national-level strategic goals such as increasing the employment rate of Saudi nationals. They want to hire high-quality workers for low wages, in order to produce goods and services that they can sell for a profit. Any special consideration given to nationals would be based on explicit incentives, such as quotas, regulations and subsidies.
With this in mind, the prevailing preference for migrant workers across many sectors of the Saudi economy reflects a combination of factors. For low-skill jobs, like retail sales, migrant workers are willing to work for less. In highly skilled job categories, like university professors, there is an insufficient number of nationals with the requisite skills. And across all skill levels, migrant workers tend to have a better work ethic. Foreigners are also free of cultural resistance to jobs that are deemed low-status in Saudi society, like garbage collectors and waiters. Consequently, in many jobs, nationals and migrant workers are not interchangeable, and in the short-to-medium term, tightening restrictions on migrant workers will only adversely affect the labor pool available to the private sector. This will likely result in pushback from firms.
Eventually, this policy will result in higher consumer prices, as the supply of cheap labor is constrained. This may cause some pushback from consumers, too, though that is unlikely to materialize in the short term.
WPR: How is Saudi Arabia faring in its efforts to attract more highly skilled foreign workers to diversify its economy away from a reliance on oil?
Al-Ubaydli: Saudi Arabia has always been able to attract highly skilled foreign workers, because it can offer high wages, good benefits and minimal taxes. Moreover, the kafala system of worker sponsorship was designed to make the paperwork for hiring foreigners very straightforward and cheap. It involves foreign workers being sponsored by domestic individuals or corporations, meaning that their presence is tied to their job. This system gives the sponsor great flexibility in hiring and firing foreign workers. By contrast, the United States' H-1B foreign worker visa requires fulfilling a byzantine set of requirements to demonstrate that the local labor pool is unable to satisfy the employer's needs.
Despite this advantage compared to other labor-importing countries in the world, Saudi Arabia has in the past been at a disadvantage relative to some other Gulf countries due to its cultural climate: separation of the sexes, restrictions on attire, and a lack of alcohol, cinemas and other entertainment facilities. These lifestyle factors forced it to pay a premium for migrant workers, but that is slowly changing due to social reforms that are improving the quality of life for Saudi nationals and foreigners alike. These include loosening restrictions on cinemas and concerts and permitting women to drive.
Moreover, ongoing difficulties in the global economy mean that there continues to be a large supply of high-quality workers willing to work in Saudi Arabia. Many OECD economies, especially in Europe, have yet to mount a sustained recovery to the 2008 financial crisis, with stagnating wage growth and persistent unemployment. Working in Saudi Arabia for a few years may look attractive, as a result.
The challenge for the Saudi government is designing systems that maximize the rate of knowledge transfer from migrant to domestic members of the workforce, to assist in diversifying the economy. In the past, much of the expertise possessed by foreign workers has departed Saudi Arabia when the workers themselves fulfill their contracts, which limits the long-term benefits to the economy. Today, there is a much greater emphasis on using foreign workers for capacity-building, to limit the economy's long-term dependence on foreign workers. But it will take many years before the fruits of this effort can be realized.

- Business Insider 22:18August 21, 2019Our favorite MTV VJs of all timePaul Natkin/WireImage via Getty Images The launch of MTV on August 1, 1981 marked a new era in music, entertainment, and pop culture.
MTV originally played 24 hours of nonstop music videos.
The VJs were MTV hosts who curated soundtracks, interviewed musicians, and added cultural commentary to music videos.
The original five VJs were Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, JJ Jackson, Martha Quinn, and Alan Hunter.
Visit INSIDER's homepage for more stories. On August 1, 1981, MTV broadcast "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles, a British band that was practically unheard-of prior to that day. Hosted by VJs, or video jockeys, MTV aired nonstop music videos, and the network quickly became a cultural sensation.
The VJs curated soundtracks of hit videos, interviewed musicians, and offered cultural commentary and social context to each video. From Nina Blackwood to "Downtown" Julie Brown, VJs through the years brought their own personalities and perspectives to the network that revolutionized how people experienced music.
Keep reading to reminisce on our favorite MTV VJs, ranked in chronological order from when they starred on the iconic TV channel.1. Alan Hunter: MTV VJ from 1981 until 1987

All the original MTV VJs get a spot on the list of favorites, but Alan Hunter has a special piece of history, as he was the first of the five VJs to speak on the network, according to an interview with TIME and details from a book Hunter co-authored about the launch of MTV.
While he had little by way of music knowledge, it was his acting background and improv skills that bewitched audiences. "Our job there was to be irreverent," Hunter told Alabama.com. "My brand of loose comedy and irreverence worked because I made a good transition between videos. ... You'd see accidents, me bumping into the teleprompter. That was part of the magic. It was out of the norm for the stiff, premeditated TV world of the 1980s."
2. Martha Quinn: MTV VJ from 1981 until 1993

Martha Quinn essentially embodied the '80s, and interviewed music icons like Paul McCartney and David Lee Roth of Van Halen.
Quinn revealed in an MTV special about the original VJs that she originally wasn't supposed to be one of the first five VJs — or a host on the new network at all. She replaced a potential cast member who dropped out of the running.
"When I auditioned, I didn't have makeup on, I was still wearing the same outfit that I wore for my job at the Weinstein Dormitory at NYU, where I dispensed toilet paper and light bulbs to students," Quinn said in an excerpt of "VJ: The Unplugged Adventures of MTV's First Wave").
With a degree in broadcast journalism and as a former DJ at the NYU college radio station, her knowledge of and passion for music made her an audience favorite. In fact, "Rolling Stone" readers voted her "MTV's Best-Ever VJ."
3. Mark Goodman: MTV VJ from 1981 until 1988

Mark Goodman also joined the first group of MTV VJs in 1981. He was already a successful radio host before joining MTV, but as a VJ, he helped shape the cultural importance of music videos for a new era of music television.
In a 1998 MTV special feature on the original VJs, Mark Goodman said of making history as one of the first VJs: "We'll always be an answer to a trivia question."

- Business Insider 22:02August 21, 2019Read the pitch deck that business travel startup Lola used to secure $37 million in fundingLola.com CEO Mike Volpe thinks business travel on the whole is just horrible – but he saw that as a big business opportunity.
Lola focuses on making it easier for medium-sized companies to manage corporate travel arrangements. Companies use the service to authorize employees to make travel-related purchases and set their own policies for those purchases. Employees then use the custom Lola experience to book work-related trips.
The Boston-based company is competing in an increasingly crowded space, but Volpe thinks Lola has another edge over rivals: its deal with American Express Global Business Travel, one of the largest players in the corporate travel market. American Express is using Lola to target medium-sized companies; its sales team markets Lola to those kinds of customers. And through that relationship, Lola gets access to special deals on airfare and hotels that are only available to American Express that it can offer its customers.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:Costco workers reveal 33 things they'd love to tell shoppers, but can'tWe pitted a $33,000 turbo Ford Mustang against a $38,000 turbo Chevy Camaro to see which was the better budget sports car — and the winner was clearWHERE ARE THEY NOW: The cast of 'Bring It On' 19 years later

Bergeron recalled that he hoped the show “would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations” following its year-long hiatus. The television personality, who has hosted Dancing with the Stars since 2005, did not explicitly name Spicer, though it is safe to assume he is referring to Trump’s first top flack, whose tenure was marred by repeated blunders.
