World's oldest billionaire Yun Chung Chang goes to work every day

At 100 years old, the world’s oldest billionaire would be forgiven for taking it easy and enjoying the riches of his eight-decade career.

But for Chang Yun Chung, founder of Pacific International Lines (PIL), staying at home isn’t an option. Despite handing over the role of executive chairman to his son, Teo Siong Seng, earlier this year, the centenarian Singaporean insists on going into the office every day.

“It’s my habit,” Chang told CNBC in a recent episode of “Managing Asia.”

As chairman emeritus of PIL — a title honoring his contribution to the 51-year-old company — Chang said he visits the firm’s Singapore headquarters daily to run through its operations and check in with every department.

The US has a chance to have its first World Chess Champion since Bobby Fischer

The World Chess Championship begins in London on Friday between reigning champion Magnus Carlsen and U.S. challenger Fabiano Caruana. Carlsen told CNBC on the eve of the opening match. I enjoy the struggle of playing human players. Should 26-year-old Caruana win, he’ll be the first American since Bobby Fischer in the mid-1970’s to hold the title. Chess has 600 million fans worldwide and its promoters claim that makes it the most participated sport in the world.

The US has a chance to have its first World Chess Champion since Bobby Fischer

The World Chess Championship begins in London on Friday between reigning champion Magnus Carlsen and U.S. challenger Fabiano Caruana. They’ll contest twelve matches spread over a three-week period to decide the 2018 winner.

There’s over $1 million dollars in prize money on offer, with this match being billed as the toughest to call in years, given how evenly matched the two player’s rankings are.

“I want the games to be long and not so much decided by home preparation. It’s all about a battle of minds on the board, which is really what I find most exciting. I think this is what Fabiano also finds the most exciting, since he is not the kind of player who relies on home preparation.” Carlsen told CNBC on the eve of the opening match.

This head-to-head battle of human intelligence is the Norwegian’s preferred form of competition and, despite advances in A.I. technology, he wouldn’t want to see a computer entered into the Chess World Championship.

“Computers are better than humans now and that’s not going to change,” Carlsen said. “I enjoy playing the best, but only as long as it’s a human. I enjoy the struggle of playing human players. To me playing a computer is far less interesting and not something I would do in an official tournament or match.’

Carlsen has been the champion since 2010, winning the title three-times in that period, but said in the pre-match conference that his form would need to “step up” if he was to win.

Should 26-year-old Caruana win, he’ll be the first American since Bobby Fischer in the mid-1970’s to hold the title. Despite the history and the quality of his opponent, Caruana insisted he was looking forward to the challenge.

“His standards are very high, he’s still having good results, just maybe not as good as he’d hoped,” the Italian-American told CNBC at the launch of the event. “It’s like boxing, you have two guys who are slugging it out for a very long time and I think it’ll go down to the wire, which is another good reason to tune in.” he added.

Chess has 600 million fans worldwide and its promoters claim that makes it the most participated sport in the world.

The newly elected president of chess’s governing body FIDE, Arkady Dvorkovich, wants to increase prize-money for future tournaments and ensure the women’s game has equal stature. Currently, total prizes on offer for women is roughly a quarter of what the men make.

The 2016 world championship took place in New York and attracted a host of famous names to watch including Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerburg and Jay-Z. A further ten million people followed the match online and that number is predicted to increase this time around.

Tiger Woods ends five-year drought with Tour Championship triumph

Tiger Woods was moved to the brink of tears after capturing his first title since 2013 with a two-stroke triumph at the Tour Championship in Atlanta on Sunday that proved he was far from washed up at the age of 42. After five years of complications in his personal life and injury woes, Woods reasserted his status as the best front-runner in the history of the sport, leading throughout the final round and finishing at 11-under-par 269 at East Lake. “I was having a hard time not crying coming up t

Tiger Woods ends five-year drought with Tour Championship triumph

Tiger Woods was moved to the brink of tears after capturing his first title since 2013 with a two-stroke triumph at the Tour Championship in Atlanta on Sunday that proved he was far from washed up at the age of 42.

After five years of complications in his personal life and injury woes, Woods reasserted his status as the best front-runner in the history of the sport, leading throughout the final round and finishing at 11-under-par 269 at East Lake.

Amid raucous scenes with the massive gallery chanting his name as they stampeded the final fairway, he raised his arms in triumph after tapping in to move within two victories of Sam Snead’s all-time record of 82 PGA Tour titles.

“I was having a hard time not crying coming up the last hole,” Woods said after sharing a moment of celebration with caddie Joe LaCava.

“I’ve been sitting on 79 (wins) for five years now. To get 80 is a pretty damn good feeling.”

Woods, who carded a closing 71, walked off to a big kiss from girlfriend Erica Herman and a hug from agent Mark Steinberg as security tried to keep the fans at bay.

The victory capped off a season that started with questions over whether Woods, now 10 years removed from his 14th major title, would even be able to play a full schedule after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April 2017.

“My body was a wreck,” recalled Woods, who hoped the operation would alleviate debilitating back and leg pain.

“The low point was not knowing whether I would be able to live pain-free again.

“I was beyond playing. I couldn’t sit, I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t lay down without feeling the pain in my back and leg.”

The 10 places vying to become the best restroom in the US

There’s an award for everything – even the title of America’s Best Restroom.

This year, ten public loos around the U.S. will compete for the title, featuring special features like disco balls, fresh flowers, classical music and elaborately decorated walls.

The annual competition draws attention to public restrooms that are super clean, visually appealing, innovative and uniquely designed. It also suggests that spending time, attention and money on restrooms can be its own reward.

“No matter the industry, public restrooms have a significant impact on customers’ overall perception of your business and their inclination to return,” said Sean Mulcahey, marketing manager at Cincinnati-based Cintas, the cleaning supply and services company that hosts the annual contest.

“The contest highlights the role clean restrooms play in elevating a good business into a great one,” he added.

Through September 18, the public is invited to vote on which of this year’s ten finalists will take the throne as 2018’s top restroom. The prize: $2,500 in restroom cleaning services, along with bathroom bragging rights.

Vienna tops Melbourne as world's most liveable city: Economist survey

Vienna has dislodged Melbourne for the first time at the top of the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index, strengthening the Austrian capital’s claim to being the world’s most pleasant city to live in.

The two metropolises have been neck and neck in the annual survey of 140 urban centers for years, with Melbourne clinching the title for the past seven editions. This year, a downgraded threat of militant attacks in western Europe as well as the city’s low crime rate helped nudge Vienna into first place.

Vienna regularly tops a larger ranking of cities by quality of life compiled by consulting firm Mercer. It is the first time it has topped the EIU survey, which began in its current form in 2004.

At the other end of the table, Damascus retained last place, followed by the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka, and Lagos in Nigeria. The survey does not include several of the world’s most dangerous capitals, such as Baghdad and Kabul.

“While in the past couple of years cities in Europe were affected by the spreading perceived threat of terrorism in the region, which caused heightened security measures, the past year has seen a return to normalcy,” the EIU said in a statement about the report published on Tuesday.

“A long-running contender to the title, Vienna has succeeded in displacing Melbourne from the top spot due to increases in the Austrian capital’s stability category ratings,” it said, referring to one of the index’s five headline components.

France scores 2nd World Cup title with 4-2 win over Croatia

France has clinched its second World Cup title with a 4-2 win over Croatia.

The dramatic final in Moscow featured a series of firsts and a pitch invasion orchestrated by Russian protest group Pussy Riot.

France led 2-1 at halftime courtesy of the first own-goal and the first video-reviewed penalty in a World Cup final. The own-goal off the top of Mario Mandzukic’s head was the 12th of the tournament. That’s double the previous World Cup record of six.

Croatia rallied to equalize on a terrific left-foot strike by Ivan Perisic, but France took the lead right back when Perisic handled the ball in the area. Argentine referee Nestor Pitana initially didn’t call the handball but awarded the spot kick after a video review. Antoine Griezmann converted the penalty to put France back in front.

Four pitch invaders disrupted the game in the 52nd minute for about a minute before being dragged away by security and police. Punk rock group Pussy Riot quickly claimed responsibility for the pitch invasion via social media, saying it was a protest aimed at ending illegal arrests of protesters and to allow political competition in Russia.

Play resumed and France quickly took a 4-1 lead with goals from Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe in the 59th and 65th minutes before Mario Mandzukic pulled one back for the Croatians in the 69th.

Croatia was playing in its first World Cup final. For France, it was a first World Cup crown since winning on home soil in 1998.

What to do when your boss takes you for granted

Dear Work It Out,

I have been struggling with a situation at work. I have been so stressed out and feel like I’m worthless.

For the past seven years, I have dedicated myself to my job. I have put it before my family. I have two small children. It took me seven years to get my own office with this company and 17 years in the medical field. I have played the role of office manger but never actually had the title. I continuously go above and beyond to make sure I produce quality work. This week they gave a new coworker a managing title. They also put a sign outside my office door with her name right below mine. So I guess I’ll be sharing an office now?

I don’t know how to handle this. I don’t know if it’s professional to go to my boss and say, ‘Hey what about me?’ I don’t want to leave my job. I love what I do, but I feel like I’m constantly being taken advantage of or being overlooked.

Looking for some advice. Please help!

It sounds like you are angry and at your limit, and that should tell you something: You don’t feel respected. That’s a problem.

The fact that your boss didn’t even have the courtesy to tell you you’d be sharing an office shows me that they take you for granted.

No matter what people say, business is personal, and it’s important to have a healthy relationship with your job and with your manager. You should feel valued, recognized and respected. And just like any good relationship, that requires good communication.

You asked if it’s professional to go to your boss. Short answer: Yes, absolutely. As a manager, I can tell you most of us have good intentions. But we’re also busy and flawed, and we aren’t mind readers. You have to help us out by communicating your needs and goals.

Of course, it would be unprofessional to march into your boss’s office and throw a tantrum, demanding to know why some undeserving outsider has a fancy title when you’ve been working your butt off and getting ignored. That would probably feel great, but it’s a terrible idea.

Instead, I would recommend you have a direct and mature conversation with your boss about what you want. That may require some self-reflection. Do you know what you want? For example, are you looking for additional responsibilities? A private office? New title? 10 percent raise? Be specific.

Once you know what you plan to ask for, schedule a meeting with your boss and prepare them for the conversation. As with any difficult discussion with your manager, it’s better to eliminate the element of surprise. Email your boss and ask to sit down to discuss your “career aspirations and future with the company.” Then they’ll know it’s serious.

I’d advise keeping the conversation focused on you and your career path rather than talking about your coworker, which may come across as petty. Ask for a timeline and feedback on what it would take to get you to the next level.

It’s possible your boss takes you for granted because you haven’t spoken up and asked for more. Being a good soldier can come back to bite you if you don’t set boundaries. On the other hand, they may not really see you and the value you bring — now or ever. If that’s the case, it could be time to look for something else, be it a new department or new company.

Either way, it sounds like you need to emotionally detach from your work. It’s an easy thing to say and a hard thing to do, but it makes a world of difference. Shift your focus back to yourself and your family and the things you enjoy outside the office. I’m not saying flake on your responsibilities, but take a step back. Remember — there’s more to life than work, even if you enjoy what you do.

When you find that balance and strength within yourself, your boss and peers may start to notice and stop taking you for granted.
