Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 32 | Flight Problems & What To Do

As an ESL speaker, there’s nothing like being in another country when a flight cancellation happens, throwing your hands in the air incredulously and not being able to communicate with people as to why it was canceled, let alone what to do next.

From lost baggage, to rampant delays, overbookings, and poor customer service. We’ve all been a part of that, but how can we handle these frustrating situations? In today’s podcast, we’re going to discuss flying in general, then listen to five different situations and how to approach them.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 30 | Sickness & Business

Britons average 6.5 sick leave days a year. In America, if you take sick leave within the first couple of months of your new job, you’re not going to go back.

Meanwhile, in Australia, you have 30 holidays and a minimum of 15 sick days a year. 

A Goldman Sachs recent survey revealed that first/second-year consultants are averaging 90 days of work a week, plunging their mental health into the red zone and not having ANY personal time. The CEO, of course, shrugs his shoulders because it’s all about the money.

A complete opposite of this would be my business client in Bangkok buying each of his employees a one-year membership to a gym, giving them the opportunity to workout during their lunch break, too.

In today’s long episode, I reveal the good, the bad, the ugly, and what you can do if you’re working in a highly stressful environment.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 29 | Social Trends in Your Country

When we think about the population getting poorer, people spending their time online, living longer, dying partnerships (or growing), and other trends….they change quite often.  In today’s podcast, we discuss a wide range of trends in different countries. And in the end, you’ll have an assignment to do!

{Patreon Special} Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6: Episode 33 | Airports & My Favorite Airports in The World

When it comes to Asia, they have the best airports in the world and it’s not even close.  Compared to the western world, Asian airports put them to shame.  For instance, Changi International in Singapore is literally 30 years ahead of its time — that’s how great it is! However, there are some airports that fall way below average in Asia such as KLIA2 in Malaysia, Vientiane’s stereotyping (which affects customer service), and the shambolic international airport in Ho Chi Minh City.  So, what are your three most important perks for an airport and your three least — listen to the podcast to find out what type of perks there actually are!

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Investment | Different Investments; Different Ages

There are different types of financial products for certain people based on age, what they’re doing, and what their intent is; whether it’s day-trading or investing in stocks. Based on your country, I suggest you do some research in terms of the different types of things made available, but also watch different YouTube videos so you understand how investment portfolios work. Financial managers/brokers are NEVER in the best intent for you…so be wary of that! In today’s podcast, we cover these topics.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6 | Investment | Tips for Saving Money

Here’s a pre-investment podcast — podcast — for all of you out there. I came across a very informational video that brought the spotlight on my money and finances, especially over the year.  As you probably know, shutdowns had begun early last year and the majority of the world was caught-off-guard, including me. So, instead of being proactive, I was reactive. I didn’t have an emergency fund of 3-6 months worth of rent saved up. I didn’t have travel expenses saved up, or even the stipend for a pretty expensive visa. So, I had to work in overdrive to cover expenses and that was three months of stress.

After watching this video and in the midst of the second shutdown, I’m very excited about the “how to” save for a rainy day. Tune into the podcast before we dive into the beginning stages of investing!

Reading – Coal Burning

The coal industry has had a large environmental impact from land use, waste management, water and air pollution caused by coal mining, processing, and using coal. Not only does it cause atmospheric pollution, but coal burning also produces millions of tons of solid waste products. Burning coal comes with severe health effects and is estimated to shorten approximately 1,000,000 lives worldwide every year. The following are three methods for reducing the pollution produced by coal burning.

One method is to improve the reaction efficiency.  By improving the reaction efficiency, air pollution can be reduced. It will not be an immediate impact, but over the long term it will have a significant impact.

Another method is to use water to flush the coal and remove sulfides to prevent the creation of sulfur dioxide.  This would help to reduce the level of pollution created by the sulfides reacting with the air.

A third method is to collect the emitted carbon dioxide. This would prevent the gases from reaching the atmosphere. Pollution levels from carbon dioxide would drop significantly over time as this technology is expanded.
