Good business ethics

This organization has set up an example how to help employees during the unprecedented time like we are all having due to coronavirus. The organization kept all its employees without any furlough or layoff. They even gave a bonus to employees during the COVID-19 period. The CEO didn't take any salary either.

I hope Giants will have their team together whenever NFL starts after the COVID-19 lockdown. They all have to play together with the one goal in their mind that they have to be in the top 3 teams in their league. New quarterback can only do so much but if the team spirit is not there, he can't do much. Go Giants Go...

Organic food from China

What a hypocritical attitude? Whole Foods is selling organic food imported from China? How can you trust China what they are exporting? It is unfortunate that our country is dependent upon China for food. Whole food is only worried about their profits irrespective of the consequences of making the country dependent for food on other countries.they could develop the sources from the country itself for all organic food. It is a shame.

Extra charge for the middle Seat

At the time of corona virus lockdown Frontier wants to sell the middle seat for $39 if you want  to keep it empty. In my view it is not correct. It is the responsibly of Fromtier to have social distancing in their planes for the safety of their passengers. Frontier is trying to sacrifice the health of passengers in exchange of a small amount of profit in their planes. You can not expect anything better from an Organization like Frontier who have such a narrow vision. At this time they need to prove to passengers that they care for their well beings which will reward Fromtier in future.

Stimulus checks

As previously informed by Dr. Rastogi of RTFS LLC, we got our stimulus check from the US Treasury right in time on April 15th. In general all those who are expecting stimulus check, must have their direct deposit bank account information with the IRS. If you don't have that, go to IRS. gov and click on Get My Payment and enter your bank account information. Otherwise your check will not arrive for six months. This is a great thing that US Govt has done for all its citizens.

Spirituality revealed as you hear Sadhguru ji

As a licensed yoga teacher, i enjoy imparting hands-on training to senior citizens on how to sit, stand, bend, twist, and perform daily chores in safe manner. The ISHA foundation of India is an inspiration in this direction. 

It is a sheer joy listening to Sadhguru Jaggi Vasdev , he speaks on every topic extemporaneously, doesn't carry a note book, pen or paper. He is a leader, and without a religious following. This is pure spirituality.

How come world health organization missed it. The whole world has come to stand still and don't know where to go and how to overcome this COVID-19 pandemic.

Why aren't they able to do this so far? It had been almost over 60 days and still quest hasn't come up with a quick unable test for Coronavirus. There is a big shortage of this test all over the country. It is taking almost over a week for people to test for the virus and get results in 3-5 days.

It was a two bedroom apartment with all amenities and really close to many restaurants and in a quite neighborhood. We enjoyed the stay and the full kitchen facility which we can not get in a hotel room. We loved Airbnb. Great Business.  We didn't have to see anyone to check out either.

It is extremely important that fast food restaurants keep the stores clean and sanitized. I have been observing that Burger Kind managemnt is not pressuring the franchisees to keep the facilities clean. Employees don’t even clean the tables after a customer leaves after eating the food. Trash lies on the floors for long time. Bathrooms are dirty. It is not worth visiting from hygienic point of view the Burger King. I can’t be sure about the hygiene of workers who are cooking food at Burger King.
