1. Happy #IWD2020!
2. #COVID19 will make a great case study! The #snf has already launched a specific call
3. I support the rational approach of the Swiss authorities in dealing with the #outbreak
4. Although improving, I’m still disappointed by the media. Typically no context provided, rather preferring panic-generating headlines. No words for all pseudo-experts spreading their apocalyptic views on (some) social media (same for people sharing). This situation will hopefully shed light on yet another dark side of social media.
5. Strong reaction to the outbreak and social order are good. Underestimating the severity (for individual health, for public health and for health systems), ignoring it or – even worse – panicking are increasingly and chaotically BAD.
6. The US business cycle was stretching to record level length, starting expansion during the first Obama administration, with a #recession [in the short to medium term] increasingly possible, although nobody could forecast right timing. This looks like a legit trigger…
7. Homo oeconomicus was hit hard ! If you look close at individual and collective reactions among the population during these times, you’ll find a long list of behavioral and cognitive biases studied by Behavioural Economics
La Città di Lugano si conferma all’avanguardia della digitalizzazione.
A seguito dell’emergenza COVID-19, la Milano Digital Week 2020 è stata posticipata a maggio. Invece di annullare l’evento previsto per il 12 marzo prossimo, la Città coglie l’opportunità per ampliare ulteriormente il pubblico potenziale trasformandolo in un live streaming con gli ospiti della conferenza.
Ecco il nuovo sito della Lugano Digitale, con tutte le informazioni aggiornate: https://www.lugano.digital/
I owe a great deal to Waterpolo. WATERPOLO taught me discipline and perseverance: every single season was made of 9 months of consistent training, suffering, sacrifice and efforts. All to make it to the finals, in the best possible shape and condition, individually and as a team. All whilst working and studying, fitting 4 to 5 trainings per week and games during weekends in my schedule. WATERPOLO taught me the importance of planning and leadership. I learned that success comes with toughtful planning of collective and individual preparation. And beyond driving team and players to stick to the plan, you need a leader to inspire and motivate them to perform. WATERPOLO taught me the importance of both the team and the individual components of the team. Even the weakest element is essential during a training session. You can’t prepare your defense scheme with your 5 best players only. You need all 13 players. And the team will only succeed if the individuals composing it will be able to come together and play in harmony, just like a well oiled symphony orchestra. WATERPOLO taught me that money, publicity or Instagram likes do not motivate me to work hard. Waterpolo doesn’t pay bills ‘round here. And it doesn’t give fame. If you do all of this, it’s ‘cause you f…ing love it, you love the suffering, you love the game. No bullshit, just passion. WATERPOLO taught me the value of learning from the best instead of beating the worst. I thank all the great players that I had the privilege to share lane with. Many of which became close friends. Some of which I traveled the world with. I learned a lot whatching them play, talking and training with them. In life just like in the swimming pool. WATERPOLO taught me that success comes with failure. I swallowed lots of silver, bronze, dust, water and mud to earn that bit of gold. But above all, WATERPOLO gave me the best friends one could hope for. Not all my teammates are friends. Not all the teams I was part of meant family to me. But among my teammates I did find a bunch of people I can truly call Friends and that are Family. I carry all these assets with me every day outside of that swimming pool. Thank you WATERPOLO.
