Why Golfers Buy Hole In One Insurance

The goal of insurance is usually to protect us from life’s least happy circumstances: the loss of a family’s primary breadwinner, the theft of one’s car, the onset of an illness requiring expensive treatment. We buy insurance to protect us from misfortune and the times when lady luck lets us down.

But there is one type of insurance that people buy to protect them from the consequences of unusually good luck: In Japan, the U.K., and, to a lesser extent, around the world, golfers buy insurance to protect themselves from the potentially bankrupting consequences of sinking a hole in one.

I Know That Voice

Welcome to the Traffic Capital of the World

I am in a tiny steel cage attached to a motorcycle, stuttering through traffic in Dhaka, Bangladesh. In the last ten minutes, we have moved forward maybe three feet, inch by inch, the driver wrenching the wheel left and right, wriggling deeper into the wedge between a delivery truck and a rickshaw in front of us.

Up ahead, the traffic is jammed so close together that pedestrians are climbing over pickup trucks and through empty rickshaws to cross the street. Two rows to my left is an ambulance, blue light spinning uselessly. The driver is in the road, smoking a cigarette, standing on his tiptoes, looking ahead for where the traffic clears. Every once in awhile he reaches into the open door to honk his horn.

The company that thinks it can finally solve the problem of business cards

People have been predicting the end of the business card for years. Countless startups have popped up promising to make carrying more than one card, or any at all, obsolete.

But in Japan, where the exchange of business cards is still treated with elaborate etiquette and they’re rarely shoved in a pocket and forgotten, a company that has brought technology to business cards thinks it can go global.

CrossFit's health hazards: From detached retinas to wetting your pants

Sweating, screaming, pumping, pushing: It's no secret that CrossFit is an extreme form of exercise. A combination of rapid-fire bodybuilding, gymnastics, and track and field moves, the workout has attracted a global following, and celebrities like Cameron Diaz and Jessica Alba swear it's a sure way to a hard body.

Alongside the acolytes, though, there are critics: Not just the folks who disliked the fitness regimen enough to start an "I Hate CrossFit" website, but people who say they have been badly injured during CrossFit.

747: The World’s Airliner

March 31 marked the end of an aviation era in Japan. That day, the last of the country’s passenger-carrying Boeing 747s landed at Tokyo’s Narita airport. Over the previous six months, All Nippon Airways had sent its 747-400s on a series of farewell tours, following by several years the final flights of Japan Airlines’ jumbo jets.

Now at the Movies: Fully Reclining Seats

The nation's second-largest movie theater chain is spending hundreds of millions of dollars outfitting a number of theaters with La-Z-Boy-type seats that fully recline—a conversion that removes up to two-thirds of a given auditorium's seating capacity. It's a less-is-more approach to a business that has long thought bigger was better.
