Two days ago I posted images of the first significant snowfall of the season. Last night Mother Nature decided to dump some more #snow on us. There’s currently about 30 cm (12 inches) on the ground. I’m sure many people in town are not happy as a result.
However, this is where #mindset comes in. I view this as an #opportunity for me to get a #cardio workout and #exercise some muscle groups that don’t usually get engaged. I’ll be shoveling a bunch of snow later today.
How would you react?
A quotation from Colton, Charles Caleb:
Times of general calamity and confusion have ever been productive of the greatest minds. The purest ore is produced from the hottest furnace, and the brightest thunderbolt is elicited from the darkest storm.

The Rhysida ransomware gang has claimed responsibility for a cyberattack on the British Library in October, which has caused a major ongoing IT outage. Rhysida is auctioning off the #data it reportedly stole from the United Kingdom's national library #systems. "With just 7 days on the clock, seize the #opportunity to bid on exclusive, unique, and impressive data," the gang says. "Open your wallets and be ready to buy exclusive data.

My wife and I had the wonderful #opportunity to visit deaf and dumb #kids in a private set up in B S Maktha #Hyderabad. It was a good facility and it is an experience of a kind. We visited again and sponsored a breakfast. I must say it is an unforgettable experience and the kids benefit and so did we. One kid actually taught me multi-focus etc. in my phone camera! I challenge, encourage and wish more people to #experience similarly.
Back in ye olde days, I went on a Christian #retreat to a Benedictine #monastery. We ate in #silence whilst one of the monks read #uplifting text. Was #joyful and #amusing rather than overtly Christian. The meals were #simple and #plain, with much of the food coming from their garden #grown #produce.
I was there for about a week, walking in the walled enclosed #garden. #Reading my preferred material. Meals were the only required attendance. I was able to do #yoga in my room. #Meditation of my preference. Remaining in the #silence of my choosing.

Marcus had to leave Sweden because he was told no one would support a Black chef in the EU. We should be so humbled by the opportunities we provide for prosperity. How did we get a Mike Johnson? He is a pox on the American Dream. Let’s move on to what the US can do best - #hope, #freedom and #opportunity.
This holiday season is your perfect #opportunity to set a sales record. Customers are generally aware of these challenges but are stubbornly reluctant to accept any of the impact on their own lives. Of #course, this is not abnormal during the holiday season, but customers are going to be price-tag shopping more than usual. You might consider a similar #free shipping promotion, as it can motivate your customers to make additional purchases. We know influencer reviews...

Any kind of change spins the wheel of fortune. Even negative events (e.g., being fired, a car accident, or the end of a relationship) open doors to unexpected new opportunities.
Unless we are blissfully happy with the way things are now, we should deliberately shake up our routines: Drive a different route. Shop at different stores. Go places we've never been before. Smile at strangers.
Ask: What one boring thing in my routine can I shake up today?

I've been reading the last few days about opportunity hoarding, especially amongst White self-identified Liberals in the US. It's very fascinating stuff, but it indirectly reminds me of something I think of a lot when I read a subset of liberal and leftist political discourse.
I'm sure she probably doesn't even remember telling me this, but a good friend and philosopher once said to me (paraphrasing, it was years ago):
"We should be immediately skeptical - not completely close-minded, but skeptical - of any moral or political claim that is made that involves a lot of changes and sacrifices for many people but conveniently none for the people making the claim in question."
.. Exactly there.

A friend privately responded: "[Eberhard should] blame himself for not having covered [the points that led to defamation suit] in his agreements when Musk signed up initially. America is a land of opportunists."

Scott is an incumbent, he’s wealthy, he’s well-known from his two terms as governor, and he’ll be running two years after Republicans trounced the Democrats in Florida’s 2022 midterm elections. In addition, one of two Floridians will likely be heading the GOP presidential ticket, either former President Donald Trump or Gov. Ron DeSantis.

8/ I think there is also #opportunity when it comes to #ResearchQuestions. What if an individual could post a question and provide a bounty for the answer to that question? This would result in better curated results while simultaneously providing income to the individuals providing the answer
Yes, the mathematics here would be complex. But I don't think it should be a winner-takes-all situation. This is why the #algorithms would need to be #open and #public - to ensure they are #fair and #just
That is, it is hard to make money when in an #EconomicallyDepressed area. Where will you get a job? If you do get a job, how much will it pay?
