LEARN TO DANCE IN THE RAIN

This 'lockdown' era , as restrictive as it might sound, presents you with a lot of choices. As human beings, we always have choices. We are endowed with neural capabilities that allow us to act by habit and to act by choice. Especially, when we are challenged and when our vanity values are triggered, we want to have the FREEDOM of choice.

Keeping your movement restricted is of course curbing your freedom. To many it's a challenge of your right to liberty as in "Give me Liberty or Give me Death." However, deep inside, you know that the intention is not to rob you of your liberty per se. It is an event-based measure to preserve your reason to fight for the liberty which you so cherish...your life. And it is not about your life only. It is about the lives of those around you. Those whom you love and love you. Those whom you love and do not love you. Those who love you and you do not love. And, those who do not know you. 

Seriously, don't you get it! Don't you get it? These are air mines. Floating around. Or not? No one is very very sure. What the authorities are saying is that they have no laser target solution. They are now using crude and rude methods to contain the onslaught. The very reason they are doing this is to ensure that you can fight for your liberty, another day.

The only thing I am sure about this is that if you inject yourself with disinfectants, you will get rid of the virus...and the host.

Are you going to resist a Tsunami warning?  A earthquake prediction? When these disasters will hit you? Why is running away from the coronavirus any different?  Running away from the coronavirus is running away from people. Running away from harmless looking people is not a norm. We can't see, feel, hear, touch or smell the danger. So, the need has to be enforced.

Just imagine there is a heavy storm outside, it's raining cats and dogs ...and once in a while tractors and trucks. The streets are flooded. It has been like that for a few days. It will be like that for the next six weeks. What would you do? What can you do? You can dance in the rain without going out into the rain.

STEM JOBS: CAREERS IN THE POST PANDEMIC 'NEW NORM' WORLD

In the clasp of the novel pandemic, it feels being engulfed in a mesh of sly and ruthlessness. Every day, real and fake news of the virus’ conquests toughen the strands of the mesh, making it less porous. Harder to breathe. Massive millions are literally struggling to get their lungs working. Nearly three hundred thousand have ceased to need lungs. Heartbreaking. Scary. Humbling. The challenge for the living are manifold. Health and wealth is now the correct order of concern. People used to put the ‘W’ before the ‘H’. That is, whatever left, that were not drained by this ‘evil disease,’ as China’s numero uno, Xi Jinping calls it. But it’s like a rolling deficit. The trail of destruction is still fluid. Depending on which of the two directions you are looking, the scenario is similar, although not equal. If you look East it is gloom. If you look West, it feels like doom. And no one seems to have the answer to the question, “When can we eliminate this unseen evil that is elim

People Can Die from Anger but Needn’t; Learn How

Let's get to the heart of the problem. Anger can kill you. If you allow it. Phillippe Coutinho is in fix at the moment. He is an asset of Barcelona FC, the top Spanish club but is  playing for Bayern Munich, the top German club.   The problem with this arrangement is that he seldom  starts. The bigger problem is, according to reports, Barca wants him to find a new club and Bayern is  not buying. On loan from Barcelona, the Brazilian was once adored as the midfield wizard   at  Liverpool FC. Since his $210 million move to the Spanish club in 2018, it has been downhill for the once much-loved player. His fall from grace has stumped football fans. It’s not like he has lost his skills. Whenever he played, he continued to display the fluid skills that made him famous at Anfield, the home ground of Liverpool FC. The Problem with Coutinho is not Coutinho Experts have pinpointed the problem. Lionel Messi. The long time lynchpin player at Barcelona. The king of the arena. The jewel of

IN THIS TRYING TIME, TRY TO LOVE THE JOB YOU HATE

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. " -Confucius It's of little comfort thinking about the industrial quality sanitizer dispensers we installed at staircase landings and common areas, the SARs response plan and the wipe-down protocol I have left with the company I worked for (nuts!) 35 years. Back then, in 2003,we were already big on testing, screening, quarantine and contact tracing. And, we did a good job, keeping our factories open. "And, we did a good job, keeping our factories open." It's not so good out there now. We are all in this grim mush. The scarier prospect is that no one knows when it will all end. It's been a yo yo. We thought Singapore had it in their pockets. Then, their infections skyrocketed. From a model, it is now the worst in the region. South Korea had their highest daily spike and China just reported their first double figure in
