The Perfectionist Does Opera His Way, New York Times, Sunday, February 2, 2014

“My whole life, it is a run,” – said Dmitri Tcherniakov, Russian stage director – “A run with a goal. Sometimes I’m running and I’m gasping for air. Sometimes I run in happiness, sometimes I run in fear. And I want an opportunity to stop and look at things differently.”

Reading "Severe Drought Has U.S. West Fearing Worst", article in New York Times, published Sunday, February 2, 2014

Today I can barely walk and ride to my home – train is not working, sidewalks are a complete mess and one snowstorm followed by another, lower temperature did not give people any relaxation... But!

A few thoughts about Business – reading the article in New York Times “Domino’s Delivery Workers Settle Suit For $1.3 Million”

   Two bicycle delivery men sued the Domino’s franchisee that employed them, accusing it of minimum wage and overtime violations. The names of these two men are Anatole Yameogo and Rodriguez Herrera. They are working for Domino’s pizza shop on East 89 Street in Manhattan. I remember Domino’s pizza shop between 74 and 75 St. and 1st Ave; I lived there 2 years ago. Delivery men are working very hard every day, often risking their lives; I don’t even mention the bad weather, when delivery men have to work in intolerable conditions.

Drive car until you're a hundred!

Like real New Yorkers, resisting this harsh weather!   My attention was caught by an article in New York Times for December 14, 2013. The title of the article is “The Aging May Have Alternative to Giving up the Car Keys”, from First Business Page.

Notes on obesity

My attention this week was caught by the article from “Essence” magazine, written by Jeannine Amber. The name of the article intrigued me – “The new science of weight loss”. Good, it is very relevant to me, because I am working on it every day!
