At work each month a set of hours are set aside/scheduled for employees to learn something new. I have worked at more than a dozen companies and have never seen a periodic time scheduled in the company calendar for it. Yesterday we had eight hours scheduled for learning. During that time an invite for a one hour presentation UnsafeCSharp showed up. I watched and enjoyed it. In addition most presentations at work are recorded so I am planning on watching it again later today.
As I am writing this post I am not sure if there are things that were presented that are company confidential. For that reason, at this time I am not disclosing the name of the presenter or will dive into specific topics. Continue reading “Notes from the UnsafeCSharp Presentation”
Yesterday the temperature in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul reached 72F which is quite pleasant for this time of the year. Today we are expecting 42F for a high. That is a drop of 30F! At least the day is forecasted to be sunny.
I also received a message from Gleves48061@hotmail.com regarding my post Revenue Milestones in Java. Not sure what it was all about so I will not comment on it at this time. If I could get an updated comment, I will review and reply as needed. Thanks. Continue reading “Producer and Consumer – Part 2”
Hope you are doing well. I fully understand that not all countries are moving quickly to vaccinate most their population against COVID-19. Hopefully the efforts have already started and will be completed soon. Here in the USA it seems that every state is moving at its own pace. That said, a large amount of people have received at least the first of two jabs. The youngest I know of is of age 21. The world needs to get as much of its population vaccinated as possible to achieve herd immunity. If this is not done the virus will continue to mutate and the threat of COVID-19 might remain for years or decades.
It seems that Israel is leading the vaccination process. As in many other countries, there are some people that do not wish to get vaccinated. The prime minister of Israel has made some clever, and for what I understand legal changes to motivate all their citizens and residents to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
In a nutshell the idea is that the good of the majority needs to prevail. People will not be forced to get a vaccine unless there are medical reasons. Besides that, the population needs to show a vaccine passport to work where there is human contact with others. If the person wishes to attend events and places where they could possibly transmit COVID-19, they need to have a COVID test in the previous 48 hours. The COVID tests used to be free but in the near future people will need to pay for a test. So if a person for without a real medical issue does to get the vaccine but wishes to mix and mingle with others, they will have to pay and get a COVID test every other day. I guess Israel will be one of the countries that will reach heard immunity in the very near future. In my humble opinion, we in the USA need to start thinking about each other and work for a common goal. Continue reading “Producer and Consumer”
