Casino Royale

I went to see Casino Royale last night and very much enjoyed the idea and most of the execution in bringing the Bond franchise back to its roots, with an origin story and a young and untested Bond.

Daniel Craig was great as the young Bond and deftly plays the character as an intense and strapping agent, clearly skilled but learning his way and prone to arrogance and errors in judgment.

The film was a bit long and could have used some additional editing, but it was certainly the most enjoyable Bond film in recent memory and infuses the franchise with some desperately needed originality and charisma.

  1. CR's return to the cool, brutal sophistication of Flemming's original work fully demonstrates the Broccolis' under-rated genious in executing the Bond franchise as a whole. With Die Another Day, they took their own cliches and conventions -- cars, gadgets, girls and cartoon villians -- to their ridiculous conclusions. That diabetic's nightmare of a treat completely sated us fans of such lunacy, paving the way for the older-style film-making of the new piece. I couldn't have loved it more.

  2. Many friends of mine often have fun in Internet gambling clubs, and I did not understand such entertainment, but when I started playing online gambling I realized that this was an interesting pastime. But I was wondering where to find the best online casinos? And after a long search on the network, I found the most suitable and best top casino reviews UK , on the basis of which I chose the most profitable ones for myself, and already they contain the most profitable games and slots. This fact helped me not only to play in a casino interestingly, but also to financially enrich myself and, to be honest, to work well. When the game turns into earning, it's great fun and just awesome.

The Business Model Innovation Factory by Saul Kaplan (Book Review)

As a culture, we strive for personal transformation. Whether it's eating better and getting fit, redefining our professional value proposition through training and education, or simply trying to be kinder and gentler, we're constantly reinventing who we are and what we can do. We may not be successful all the time, or achieve breakthroughs like those featured on The Biggest Loser or facilitated by Tony Robbins , but millions of people successfully transform and reinvent themselves every year. Unfortunately, the very organizations where we work generally do not do the same. As Saul Kaplan elaborates in The Business Model Innovation Factory , most organizations struggle to transform from their core, initial business models and tend to become stagnant and vulnerable to disruptive competitors. The example Kaplan leads with is Blockbuster, which for a time owned the brick and mortar video and DVD rental space, until they were "netflixed" by a disruptive competitor (

10 Suggestions for Reopening Gyms in NY State

It’s been over 90 days since gyms were closed in NY State to help slow the spread of COVID-19, and this past week Governor Andrew Cuomo addressed the issue with the following update: "We are still looking at the science and the data. There has been information that those situations have created issues in other states. If we have that information we don't want to then go ahead till we know what we're doing. Right? This is a road that no one has traveled on before. And logic suggests that if you see a problem in other states then you explore it before you move forward in your state." Cuomo also suggested the exercisers in gyms would likely not wear masks which could spread more of the virus. While we all can applaud anchoring policy to science and data, it’s questionable if this has been done here. Despite literally months to research and formulate a plan, NYS has not offered any definitive science backed information tied to re-opening gyms. More troubling, NY has
