Day 11 of 21daysOfLockdown

Day 11 of the lockdown. Day 16 otherwise. So today, I finally decided to stop cooking at home. Even though it is super risky to order in, I still want to go ahead and do it. My theory is that these restaurants have been operational for a while now and that means they are taking care of the safety requirements in terms of food and all. Plus the amount of time and mental trauma it takes to cook, clean, cook, clean twice a day is not something that I can't handle. I have learned enough to be able ...

Peace Found in the Storm

  The sea reminds me of prayer.  No words needed.  Ebb and flow of thoughts, pouring out, disappearing in the sand as the tide flows over it. Steady strong softness unwinding and gathering. Moving with the tide, letting go, letting be- Seashells toss and turn becoming sand. Moving with the tide, buoyant letting go, letting be Diving deep and surfacing.            [Author: French la Vie]

“Print media is in a deep mess. The time has come for every business to press ‘reset’”: newspapers and magazines in India are suddenly gasping for breath as #CoronaVirus strikes multiple blows

*** In 1988, Andrew Grove, the founder and former CEO of the American chip-manufacturing giant Intel, wrote a book titled Only the Paranoid Survive, in which he floated the concept of the “strategic inflection point”. “A strategic inflection point is a time in the life of a business when its fundamentals are about to change. That change can mean an opportunity to rise to new heights. But it may just as likely signal the beginning of the end.” Shorn of the jargon, a strategic inflection point is ...

Cowslips

These relatives of the primrose are known around here as coucous (which in French means cuckoos,* but in English they're cowslips). Early spring is when they pop up (about the same time that the cuckoo birds show up) and make these bright yellow flowers. We have a couple in our yard, but I see them mostly in wild places along our dog-walking route. I know they're called "cow-slips" in English, but I can't help thinking "cows-lips" whenever I hear or read their name. LOL. Ken made a successful ...

Automating hospitality in times of social distancing | By Iis Tussyadiah

The global COVID-19 pandemic has brought the travel and hospitality sectors to a halt. The calls to enact social distancing measures mean no more travelling or meeting friends at pubs or restaurants. The consequences are devastating for airlines, hotels, events, restaurants etc. and result in closures and job loss around the world. Although governments have taken various measures to address these, we can expect consumers to remain cautious when interacting with others, thus continuing the...
