Lenovo's CEO shares his $3 million bonus with employees again

For the second year in a row, Yang Yuanqing, computer maker Lenovo's CEO distributed his $3 million bonus to 10,000 junior level employees.  These employees are located in 20 different countries, but mostly (85%) in China.  The payout is about $325 which is a typical month's pay for a worker in China!

“He believes that he has the responsibility as an owner of the company, and the opportunity as our leader, to ensure all of our employees understand the impact they have on building Lenovo.”, said Gina Qiao, senior vice president of human resources at Lenovo.

This makes many people wonder... is Lenovo accepting applications for employment? :)

14 year old Filipino singer invited to Ellen show in U.S.

When 14 year old Aldrich Lloyd Talonding's video was posted on YouTube, he had no idea that it would make him famous.  His cousin posted the video of Aldrich singing Luther Vanross' Dance with My Father along with his cousin's guitar accompaniment.

Aldrich's rendition of the song is really amazing and spread quickly through YouTube.  It's so amazing that Ellen DeGeneres played it on her show and asked Aldrich to “please come here and sing to me and all of my friends here.”

After receiving a call from the show's producer, Aldrich is applying for a visa to come to the U.S.

Check out Aldrich's performance:
