The world’s most famous secret agent is turning 50 – the James Bond film franchise is marking five decades since the October 5, 1962 release of Dr. No, the first movie of the series produced by London’s Eon studio.

Worldcrunch avoided the temptation to rank the best sex scenes, car chases or quotes - and chose instead to crunch each of the six actors down to a single adjective.

PIERCE BROSNAN - unmussable


DANIEL CRAIG – unbelievable (for his believability!)

Now, two years into the pandemic, working from home appears bound to be a feature of our current existence that will be with us — in some form — once COVID-19 is gone.

But even as companies experiment with different policies, others are pushing to see it translated into law — in other words, to make working from home a right.
