Ambiance of Danger
As we mentioned yesterday, the plan for level 1 is being implemented, Some New Yorkers are coming out of their apartments. But unfortunately not everyone is taking caution. Members of our neighborhood which is in upper Manhattan, are not paying attention to precautionary methods. No social distance, no masks and probably not a lot of washing hands. Instead they are partying, shouting into literal megaphones and creating an ambiance of danger.
We have still not come out of our apartment and it is day number 95 of our quarantine. Because we have access to the opinions of several medical professionals, we have learned that loosening up is not a good idea. Also, it could be premature to start living life “normally.”
Bye Bye De Blasio
Our governor Andrew Cuomo has made some mistakes but appears to be taking the right tone when talking about issues like taking subways. He actually rode in one to show that they have been cleaned up a lot and are safe to travel in. Our mayor on the other hand seems to be pissing people off with his lack of a plan, showing weakness, and appearing totally clueless as a leader. Especially the youth in our NYC communities are dising De Blasio and asking for his head.
The New Normal of the United States. U.S. New Normal. It’s not that it’s we’re going to enter into this stage, we’re already there. Think about your life, all the things you are experiencing now. Will it be that much different once you leave your lockdown? For some with jobs the require client and provider be in the same room, you’re life will likely be different from what it is at this moment. You’ll be doing work primarily out of the digital domain.
An Old Friend
Those who are working in the digital sphere are currently doing their work remotely. An old friend of mine randomly called me yesterday and we talked for almost an hour about technology, the arts and the New Normal. What I gleaned from that conversation is that we have a long way to go before things will be “normal.” And the “Now Normal” will continue to be the “New Normal.” Things will never be the same as they were before. and certain jobs have become more visible because of their needs.
When one casually looks at listings for positions that are currently available, up front and center we find that they are based on the times and make sense that they would be there. We’re talking about jobs such as Lab Technicians, Delivery People and Amazon Warehouse Workers. These all strike a chord with us because we want Lab Technicians to come up with a cure, we get our food from Delivery People and we are grateful for the Amazon Warehouse Workers who pack important stuff that we need on a weekly basis.
