The 2014 World Cup is now in full swing in Brazil. If the time difference or your work schedule is keeping you from watching the games live, three apps can keep you on top of the scores and highlights. The WSJ’s Eva Tam reports.
I’ve been working on a lot more Digits than the last few months and this one was a really quick turnaround to correlate with World Cup right now. I wrote the script on Monday night, filmed and edited it all in one day on Tuesday and put the finishing touches this morning.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed kicking around with a soccer ball that I bought just to film this!
Hong Kong’s Ming General Sushi is all you can eat for less than $10 – and a hit on social media. Fans say it’s so bad, it’s good.
My last collaboration with my colleague Te-Ping before she moved to Beijing! I miss her - and this video is finally out :)
Contrary to the advice of “Lean In,” for women, asserting a strong position in negotiations can backfire.
A good read on how women can be assertive about negotiating without being considered too “bossy” and “demanding.”
From jobs to love and money, we all experience stress every day but Toronto-based company InteraXon has created a brainwave headband that could help calm your nerves. The WSJ’s Eva Tam tries out Muse.
This is the second out of the third segment I recorded out of Toronto. They initially had an option where you can use the Muse headband to control pouring a beer tap but apparently it wasn’t working when I got there.
Anyway it was pretty cool to see my brainwaves move!
Nearly 100,000 people in Hong Kong attended the world’s largest annual Tiananmen Square anniversary vigil, police say. The WSJ’s Ramy Inocencio reports from the event, held in the city’s Victoria Park.
Pulled an all-nighter to get this story out. I shot and edited this piece. Learned a lot from covering the Tiananmen vigil for the first time as a journalist, but all in all, it was definitely an experience I’ll remember for the rest of my life.
Toronto has a tech-startup scene? Who knew? The WSJ’s Eva Tam traveled from Hong Kong to see how her hometown is trying to make its mark—with a stringless violin, gamer gloves and smart shirts.
Time to give my hometown a global shoutout (without Rob Ford) as I talked to HackerNest’s Shaharris Beh on what we should look out for in the Toronto tech scene.
This is the first time I decided to shoot while visiting home, rented equipment and shot myself with my personal DSLR. I was freezing cold doing my standup - but I think it turned out alright :)
Hong Kong opens what organizers say is the world’s first permanent museum dedicated to China’s violent crackdown on protesters in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square on June 4th, 1989. The WSJ’s Eva Tam reports on the exhibit marking the 25th anniversary.
This story took a total of 8 hours to film, write the script and edit. I’ve yet to work on any stories on June 4th since I’ve moved to Hong Kong so I am quite happy to report on the topic. I’ll be back in the field on Wednesday when my colleague and I covers the 25th anniversary.
In this week’s Digits, take a spin on the world’s first smartphone-connected electric scooter, see drone deliveries around the world and play with a smart basketball that senses your every move.
I haven’t worked on Digits in a few months, but this week, I produced the smart basketball segment and edited the drone delivery interview with Matternet.
Alibaba is China’s biggest online commerce company. After it goes public, Alibaba will be one of the most valuable tech companies in the world. Here’s a guide to the company, its founder Jack Ma and what its expected IPO will mean.
This is a project that I was part of, coordinating with Alibaba’s IPO. Thanks Tom for helping me finish the project when I was away in Toronto. I was working on the first video on “Defining Alibaba.”
This multimedia project turned out great! And a must see for everyone who does not know what Alibaba is!
You got game? 94Fifty, a smart basketball, senses your moves better than your coach, teammates or opponents. The WSJ’s Eva Tam & Tobias Reeuwijk take it to the court, to see if the ball with a brain is worth the big bucks.
I’ve been off-air for a few months, but I’m back with a review on the 94Fifty smart basketball! I had to climb onto my colleague’s back just to get that dunk…. good times! This is probably one of my favourite segments considering the subject.
