That’s pretty awful. But compared to other historical events, how bad is it?
This article shows how this pandemic compares to other major disasters of the last 100 years. It’s worse than the 1918 Spanish flu was in New York City and Boston, but still not as bad as the Spanish flu in Philadelphia. And not as bad the 2011 Earthquake and tsunami in Miyagi, Japan.
This article only covers the 20th century. I wish they could have included the Bubonic plague or other plagues to see how our current experience compares. 🤷🏻♂️
It’s a great visual to help understand a terrible event.
This podcast interview is really interesting perspective on police racism and brutality from the mayor of the city where things flamed up.
Jacob Frey is a civil rights lawyer and the mayor of Minneapolis and is still largely powerless to reign in police brutality even when it is reported. This is a really interesting study on why this problem is so intractable.
I used to think being charismatic was all about telling amazing stories and making people laugh. Not being a great storyteller or much of a comedian, I thought I could never be charismatic. Fortunately, this article says I had it all wrong. 😂
It’s about being present, removing self-doubt, and being kind and accepting to other people. Presence, power, and warmth. That sounds pretty manageable, right?
Now go out there, be in it, relax, and be nice to people. Congrats, you’re charismatic. ☺️
It may seem counterintuitive, but one of the best ways to reduce stress while traveling is to just plan less and let spontaneity take over.
I love that someone is actually saying this. Sure, plan the first part of your vacation. But leave some time for discovery, spontaneity, and to plan as you go. And you don’t necessarily have to leave that amazing place you found just yet . ☺️
There is another way: Book only the first few days. While I know for most travelers, particularly those with families, such an extreme lack of planning seems impossible, even unadvisable, I strongly recommend considering planning less, even if that’s leaving just a few days ope
