Global Business Section in Time added a new section to their homepage. It is called Global Business. I’m glad to see this because it is finally getting into mainstream media that the global economy is a real force. I’m also surprised to see that their section titled Business and Tech remains.

Here is a quick review of the Global Business site on
I really like the navigator map that lets you select a country and pin down the news you want to see. It lists out the top news stories in a light blue format. The main page doesn’t use much color. There is a weather section that also has market information and a currency converter tool. The page overall doesn’t have much advertising and is somewhat stout in the initial news offerings. But that is made up by the navigator which allows you to see much more specific news stories. Overall, I like the site and the strategy by to dedicate a space to it.

I will most likely use them for future posts.

Also, this highlights some of the posts I already have written such as:

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
