Visa Openness for African Citizens

When we talk about visa openness and easy travel for African citizens, the most open countries in Africa to list are The Gambia, Benin, and Seychelles. According to the 2022 Africa Visa Openness Report, the three countries do not require a visa from citizens from any country on the continent. In contrast to these countries are Egypt and Sudan, as they rank on the last spots of the list and require a visa from citizens from all other countries.

 

Out of 54, 36 of African countries have improved or maintained their visa openness score since 2016 making Intra-continental travel an ease for African citizens.

The Future Of Learning In The Workplace With Microlearning

Nearly 60% of all employees receive little to no workplace training and are forced to rely on themselves to learn the skills they need to efficiently do their jobs. Even when they are lucky enough to get training, workers are often taught information that they don't end up using in the actual workplace. Our current traditional ways of teaching employees isn't working and wastes time and money of both employees and employers. A small, one time, in person training event can cost thousands of dollars, not even including the time it takes to find other employees to cover for training days or renting equipment, facilities, or instructor time.

Microsoft's Growth Hindered by Strong U.S. Dollar & PC Market

 

The release of financial statements of Microsoft for the quarter ending December 2022 presented investors and observers with a mixed bag. Even though the revenue was recorded to be an all-time high of $52.7 billion, the operating income of this tech company dropped by more than $1 billion compared to the previous three-month period. This can be attributed to a considerable cooling of the PC market, which hit OEM bundling business of Microsoft and resulted in a continued decline of revenue in the Windows segment. The company's saving grace: An increased focus on cloud solutions and Artificial Intelligence, welcomed by CEO Natya Sadella as the "next major wave of computing" in the accompanying earnings call.
