11 Worst Countries for Journalists in 2015

The Committee to Protect Journalists has released a ranking of the ten most-censored countries around the world. CPJ’s methodology measures censorship by use of “a variety of benchmarks,” including “the absence of privately owned or independent media, blocking of websites, restrictions on electronic recording and dissemination, license requirements to conduct journalism, restrictions on journalists’ movements, monitoring of journalists by authorities, jamming of foreign broadcasts, and blocking of foreign correspondents.” Here is the list prepared by Insidermonkey experts about 11 worst countries for journalists in 2015.

Four heavily censored nations that nearly made the list are Belarus, Equatorial Guinea, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan, all of which have little to no independent media and are so tightly closed that it can be difficult even to get information about conditions for journalists. The list of most censored countries addresses only those where government tightly controls the media. In some countries, notably Syria, conditions are extremely dangerous and journalists have been abducted, held captive, and killed, some by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad but also by militant groups such as the Islamic State.

6 Countries That Welcome American Retirees

As the ideal retirement lifestyle becomes more difficult to attain, increasing numbers of Americans are deciding to retire abroad. In many countries, retirees can enjoy a high standard of living for a fraction of the cost of a similar lifestyle in the U.S. That, along with the change in scenery, has made retiring abroad an appealing option. There are many countries where retirees can live large on a small budget, but several nations have been especially popular among American retirees for financial reasons: Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, Portugal, and Malaysia. Here is the full list by Insidermonkey experts about 6 countries that welcome American retirees.

When you're deciding where to live out your golden years, remember that Florida and Arizona aren't your only options. Expand your search to the entire globe, and you might find your dream home where you least expected to. Some countries roll out the welcome mat for foreign retirees, offering sometimes significant tax breaks, in-country discounts and other perks to anyone who qualifies for resident retiree status. The age you qualify as a retiree can have a broad definition, depending on where you go. For example, in Belize you can qualify for retirement residency and the associated perks as young as 45, and Panama has no stated minimum age requirement for its Gold Standard retiree residency program.

16 Poorest Small Cities in America: 2015 List

America is one of the best countries in the world as far as opportunity and development are concerned. Sure, the nation’s deficit as a whole is unimpressive and actually quite shocking, but the people who live here are doing fairly well for themselves. This free country allows residents to chase their dreams without anything standing in your way. In many countries across the world, this is not something that certain people have the freedom to accomplish. But just because Americans are wealthier than so many other people from so many other countries does not mean everyone here is doing well. The country has a number of cities that are very poor and we have those right here for you to see. Check out the list of 16 poorest small cities in America to see if your city made the list.

There’s a common denominator that all bad small cities have. They are the places that have bad economies. They are the places where the school systems are in bad shape. They’re the places where people are out of work, and where residents earn low salaries. If home prices are low, it’s a sign that there’s not a lot of demand to live there. And certainly, if crime is really high, no one wants to be there at all. You can check our 16 poorest metropolitan cities in America: 2015 list in order to get a grasp on the situation with larger metros yourself.

11 Best Rated Documentaries on Netflix Streaming in 2015

You've seen the best horror films, comedies, romantic flicks, films featuring a Strong Female Lead, just overall best movies, and even the best TV shows streaming on Netflix right now. But sometimes, you don't want actors, at least in the traditional sense. You don't want manufactured dialogue either. You don't want to be mindlessly entertained. You want something real to engage with, something to offer an argument for you to turn over. You may just want a documentary. You know documentaries, right? Those things featuring real people and problems; those things that don't have scripts? Don't let the lame stream media fool you—while there's a bit of a cliché that documentaries can't live up to the excitement of something like Die Hard, we'd like to beg to differ. Documentaries are often braver, more compelling modes of storytelling, even though most don't feature Bruce Willis. Here is the list by Insidermonkey experts about 11 best rated documentaries on Netflix streaming in 2015 

For most of us when we hear the word ‘documentary’ we almost always think of one film – that one time we gave the genre a chance. More often than not that one time turned out to be great, but it didn’t refer us to any other ones. That is because we believe that documentaries would only suit a particular mood, one we are almost never in. You can also check the list of best political documentaries.

Top 11 Filipino Movies of All Time

As with 2014, a bulk of the Filipino films worth watching came from the annual film festivals that give grants to filmmakers. From the first edition of Sinag Maynila, audiences were offered a wild experiment in time and space in Remton Zuasola’s Swap, and a simple parable that is well told in Zig Dulay’s Bambanti. From QCinema International Film Festival, there is Lem Lorca’s Water Lemon, a somber examination of rural boredom, and Chuck Gutierrez’s Iisa, a daring look into the lives of leftists at the time of tragedy. From Cinema One Originals, there is Ara Chawdhury’s Miss Bulalacao, an offbeat tale of a gay man who miraculously got pregnant. From the New Wave section of the Metro Manila Film Festival, there is King Palisoc’s Tandem, a well-crafted crime thriller. Here is the list by Insidermonkey experts on top 11 Filipino movies of all time.

Interestingly, the bigger film studios, infused with a renewed openness for innovation, perhaps as a result of the success of Antoinette Jadaone’s That Thing Called Tadhana (2014), came up with films that manage to mix commercial intentions with some semblance of inventiveness. Cathy Garcia-Molina’s A Second Chance, the sequel to 2007 hit One More Chance, temporarily eschews romantic fantasies to showcase the harsh realities of married life. Finally, there are the films that are produced outside any of the established systems. In another article, we took a look at the top 11 Philippine exports and imports, so if that’s something that interests you then you should take a look.

11 High-Paying Jobs for People Who Don’t Like Stress

Some people actually do have easy jobs that pay well. So you may not have to choose between painless work and a good wage. It's possible to get both. And, depending on the particular opportunity, you might not even need much training from a trade school, college or university. Of course, finding high-paying, easy jobs definitely requires effort. After all, millions of Americans want them. They want work that doesn't cause stress, fatigue, or burnout, all of which are widespread problems. In fact, one survey has shown that about 40 percent of the nation's workers have jobs that come with high or extreme levels of stress. Here is a list by Insidermonkey experts about 11 high-paying jobs for people who don’t like stress.

And other surveys and studies have shown that many people consider their jobs as the top stress in their lives and that no other life stress is more strongly associated with health problems. But what makes a job easy? Everyone seems to have a different perspective. One person's easy job could be another person's nightmare. Some people prefer the comfort of calm, consistent, and simple routines, whereas other people need stimulating challenges in order to stave off boredom. So the criteria used in determining whether or not a job is easy can be quite varied. One of the best things about easy, well-paying jobs is that they can sometimes help you make a good living while also leaving you with enough energy to pursue your true passions (which might not pay anything).

What matters is how well you manage your travel budget, and how you use those skills to create a better trip.

Unlike most hotels, hostels typically have common areas where chess games, Scrabble, Ping-Pong or lengthy conversations with other travelers take place. Even if you happen to be the oldest one in the room, don't look at your fellow guests as immature travelers with whom you have nothing in common.

11 Worst Governed Countries in The World

How can we determine which among the world’s national governments can be classified as among “the worst”? While there will never be much of a clear-cut answer to such a complex question, data found in the 2015 may help us out. The Index consists of numerous sub-indexes, one of which is called "Governance", to determine quality of life and economic performance in a country. The “Governance” sub-index therein measured the countries' performance in three crucial areas: effective and accountable government, fair elections and political participation, and rule of law. Using variables such as governmental stability and approval, separation of powers, and political rights, then weighs each of these coefficients into an overall "Governance Score" for each country. The list of 11 worst governed countries in the world listed by Insidermonkey experts will be analyzed to present the most important trends globally, and point out some of the most intriguing cases of countries and their governments.

While all of the countries on the list are unique, they share many common problems. In many, certain groups are too strong, and partisanship, government corruption, police brutality, and elitism run amuck. In others, the government is too weak to act as needed to further their respective countries. Indeed, until these countries’ leaders are able to effectively work in the best interests of the constituent populaces they represent, these nations will continue to struggle. If you want, you can also take a look and see which are the 11 worst countries that are responsible for global warming.

10 Most Expensive Cities To Live in Colorado

You can compare the cost of these things in each of the places in Colorado to figure out which is the most expensive. For reference, the United State averages a cost of living 100. A score below 100 means that the city has a below average cost of living while a score over 100 has a high cost of living for that category. So we used that cost of living index in order to rank all of the 72 places in Colorado that have more than 5,000 people. The city with the highest cost of living index, Cherry Hills Village, rank as being the most expensive. Here is a list by Insidermonkey experts about the most expensive cities to live in Colorado.

Goods and services tend to cost more in areas where residents earn higher incomes, while prices are typically lower in poorer areas. Prices in only six metro areas are at least 20 percent greater than national average prices. Of the 16 metro areas where the cost of living is 10 percent or higher than the national average. The most expensive city in a relatively poor state is almost always still less expensive than the nation on average. The costs of goods and services in the most expensive cities in each of the five least expensive states — Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, South Dakota, and Kentucky — are still well below price levels nationwide. This is not always the case, however. In seven of the states where prices are below the national average, the cost of living in the most expensive city exceeds that of the nation.

11 Worst Countries That Are Responsible For Global Warming

There are many different ways to compare national responsibility for climate change. These include current emissions – which can be viewed in absolute figures or on a per capita basis – as well as historical emissions and the carbon footprint of consumption, including imported goods. There's also the question of whether you include deforestation, or even the extraction of fossil fuels. Each approach gives a different insight – and none tells the whole story on its own. Insidermonkey experts made a list about the 11 worst countries that are responsible for global warming.

The simplest and most common way to compare the emissions of countries is to add up all the fossil fuels burned and cement produced in each nation and convert that into CO2. The problem with focusing purely on CO2 from burning fossil fuels is that it ignores other greenhouse gases and non-fossil-fuel sources of CO2. When these are included, the figures change considerably, with countries such as Brazil and Indonesia shooting up the list due to emissions caused by deforestation.

16 Poorest Metropolitan Cities in America: 2015 List

For all its apparent conveniences and perks, city living has never been easy or inexpensive. And income inequality is often most obvious in metropolitan areas. U.S. Census Bureau data, cited by the Brooking s Institution, found that the 50 largest American cities had significantly higher income gaps between rich and poor when compared to cities overall. And in December, the Census Bureau released its Five-Year American Community Survey. It aims to assist in the annual distribution of over $400 billion in federal and state funds to communities across the country while supplying those districts with data they need to help plan municipal investments and services. Here is the list by Insidermonkey experts about the 16 poorest metropolitan cities in America.

Poverty like the creation of wealth is a fact of city life. To fill out the picture of many of these cities, we picked apart the same data set and turned our lens on the places with the highest percentages of households making less than $25,000 a year. Municipal management aside, once again, it’s also hard to discount the role of education in creating wealth through information spillovers. While Boston’s 30.8 percent clearly complicates this notion, given that it has solid bachelor’s and graduate degree metrics, the observation remains largely the same cities situated near world-class research institutions or else with larger numbers of bachelor’s or graduate degree holders tend to fare better. You can also consider checking these 7 poorest countries in the world by 2015 GDP.

11 States with Highest Number of Exonerations

Exoneration has become much more common than it was a generation ago. Since the death penalty was reinstated in the 1970s, 139 people have been exonerated from death rows in 25 states; this is roughly one exonerate for every eight people executed. This increase in exoneration is due in large part to forensic DNA testing, which was first introduced into a U.S. court in 1986 and has since been refined greatly, so that results can be obtained in cases where earlier testing was inconclusive. DNA exoneration's have proven to the public that innocent people do get convicted, frequently because of false eyewitness statements, incompetent defense attorneys, false confessions, snitch testimony, and prosecutor misconduct. Here is the list by Insidermonkey Experts about the 11 states with the highest number of exonerations.

A record number of defendants were exonerated of crimes in 2014, according to The National Registry of Exoneration's' annual report released. Last year saw 125 exoneration, the most since 1989, when the registry a project of the University of Michigan Law School began tallying the number of people cleared of crimes for which they were wrongfully convicted. Texas had the most exoneration last year, with 39, followed by New York with 17 and Illinois and Michigan with seven each. Additionally, there were eight federal exoneration last year. After finishing this you can also consider reading these 10 states with the death penalty and that use it the most.

10 Countries That Spend the Most on Luxury Goods

The US, Japan and Italy are the largest luxury-goods markets of the globe, according to a research from Bain & Company. Looking at the top cities, New York leads the pack, followed by Paris and London. Bain in addition observes that international tourism is playing an increasing role in the luxury goods market, and focus should therefore be placed on nationality rather than geography of consumers. Specifically, they break down which countries are most likely to see increased spending on luxury goods, based on a number of factors, including their luxury store "footprint," their own wealth growth, and the population of "Ultra High Net Worth Individuals" (worth $30 million or more) who live in each country. Here is the list by Insidermonkey experts about the 10 countries that spend the most on luxury goods.

Perhaps the most surprising country on the list is India, in fifth place. The number of super-wealthy in India is skyrocketing, and with it, its luxury consumption is also soaring.

So keep these trends in mind, whether you're a luxury brand looking to expand, or you're part of the ultra-wealthy yourself and curious about where to go for your next shopping spree.

10 Companies that Don’t Have A Degree Requirement for Applicants

As millions of college graduates prepare to walk across the stage to receive their diplomas and join the workforce, they face an economy with high unemployment rates, increasing competition for jobs and mounting debt from their college expenses. Compare that to currently working employees who didn’t attend college but have spent the past four years making money and honing their workplace skills while amassing little to no debt. Not going to college certainly doesn’t jive with what our parents and teachers drummed into us growing up. But it begs the question: does it really pay to go to college? Is it worth earning a minimum of a four-year college degree, at least financially speaking? Here is a list by Insidermonkey experts about 10 Companies that Don’t Have A Degree Requirement for Applicants.

It’s commonly understood that networking is one of the most important things you can do when pursuing a new job, but it’s even more critical if you don’t have a degree, said Palmer. “If you don’t have a degree, the whole idea of networking is much, much more critical,” she said. “Employers prefer to hire someone that they know something about. They prefer people who have come referred. If you are trying to land a job in this very competitive job market and you don’t have a degree, you really have to take that networking to another level, to get around the fact that most employers are looking for a bachelor’s degree at an absolute minimum.” Along those same lines, strong recommendations from clients, former employers, co-workers and associations can go a long way toward making up for the lack of a college degree. You can also check the article on the 16 highest paying jobs without a degree in 2015 who have this dilemma.

7 Countries that Produce the Most NHL Players in the World

Soccer is without a doubt the world’s most popular and international sport, but the soccer league in America doesn’t feature anywhere near the best players. When it comes to international flavor where all of the best players come to the United States (or Canada), you have to talk about hockey. Sure, baseball funnels in some international talent, but not quite the same way as the NHL. Canada is coming off an impressive gold-medal performance at the 2014 Sochi Games, but is it the most dominant country in hockey's modern era? And where do teams like the United States, Russia, Sweden and Finland stack up? The Insidermonkey experts made a list of countries that produce the most NHL players in the world.

There is a reason why the hockey tournament in the Olympics is so popular, because there are so many great international teams comprised of the world’s best players. Not all of them make it to the NHL, but they can still produce some solid talent. We want to focus on the countries that have been producing the best history of NHL players, and you can probably guess who number one and two are, and the United States might be a little lower down the list than you think. But how does the rest of the list shake out? Here are the top 7 countries that produce the best soccer players in the world.

11 Cities With The Highest Demand for Software Engineers

Everyone knows that northern California’s Silicon Valley is the technology capital of the world. With the investor capital and talent the valley has to offer, it would make sense that software engineers and developers would be able to find the best payout from companies there. But there are well-paying cities all over the United States where tech-minded builders can find work that provides great salary and a fun way of life. This week, jobs and career marketplace site, Glassdoor.com, released a study of which cities in the U.S. offer the best payment for software engineers. The company provides each city’s ‘real adjusted salary’ by the determining the ratio of each city’s local median software engineer base salary to its official cost of living figures from the federal government.

The rankings, from Glassdoor, is based on each city’s “real adjusted salary,” which is determined by comparing each city’s local median base salary to the cost of living figures for that area determined by the federal government. Basically, you might have a higher salary in one city, but if it’s more expensive to live there you’re not really making more money. Maybe you also feel interested to read the list of 11 cities with the highest demand for social workers.

10 Most Lucrative Jobs from Home

Throughout 2015, our news feeds were dominated with plenty of inspiring, hilarious or even heartbreaking stories that we couldn't get enough of.

7 Easiest Digital Cameras to Use for Seniors

Electronic gadgets are becoming smaller and smaller, no doubt. Most cellular phones, for example, have tiny buttons for which most adult fingers are too large to hit without pressing adjacent ones as well. For weary eyes, small LCD screens are no big help, either – showing fine detail and small fonts. Digital cameras are no exception in this regard. Some models with touch screens could be more convenient, if you actually like using touch screens in the first place. I don’t know many people who do. The best option, in my opinion, is to buy a camera with auto mode in mind. All cameras are designed to try and identify the scene, the subject’s location, the lighting, the color balance – and automatically change shot settings accordingly. Like always – some do it better than others. Check the 7 Easiest Digital Cameras to Use for Seniors list by Insidermonkey experts to choose the correct one.

There aren’t any cameras that actually have one button. That could have been useful, of course. If you intend to use the camera solely in fully automatic mode, you have a wider variety of models to choose from. Paying more for manual controls isn’t necessary in that case – you could get auto sweep panorama instead, for example (hold down the shutter button and sweep across the view). Both Sony and Nikon have taken that path, giving emphasis to convenience rather than control. After reading this you can also consider reading  9 easiest blogging platforms on the Internet.
