East Meets West: An Infographic Portrait by Maria Popova German punctuality, Western ego and how to stand in line like a Chinese. What’s not to love about minimalist infographics — such an elegant way to depict complex concepts with brilliant simplicity. Born in China but living in Germany since she was 14, Liu has a unique grip of this cultural duality — and she channels it with great wit and eloquent minimalism in graphics that say so much by showing so little. Lifestyle: Independent vs. dependent Attitude towards punctuality Problem-solving approach Size of the individual's ego Perception: How Germans and the Chinese see one another How to stand in line Complexity of self-expression The evolution of transportation over the last three decades The volume of sound in a restaurant Catch an interview with Liu about the project over at the always-excellent NOTCOT.

Make sure your nanny won't land you in jail | Money | The O Parents who pay their nannies cash in hand could be jailed for up to seven years and fined up to£5,000 following a change in in the law. No one knows quite how many nannies there are in the UK, because so many are paid in this way. Most nannies negotiate their salaries in net terms, preferring to leave the payment of any tax and National Insurance to their employers, the parents - and they have often failed to pay some or all of the income tax due to the Inland Revenue. But from 1 January, paying an employee cash without handing over the proper tax to the Inland Revenue became a criminal offence. The most common way to pay tax on behalf of a nanny has been through Pay As You Earn (PAYE). Now, however, there is an alternative and legal way of making the payment - and saving money. This may be the time to set your nanny up in her own private limited company. So how does it work? They can then take responsibility for the administration. You will need some help with this.
