The Cafe is a great idea--thanks MRA gurus. I'll take just a moment to be an early adopter.
Considering that part of the motivation to start this is because of the new world distancing advice, I thought I'd share a bit of my day. Background: Although my formal training is in computer software design, I have been a health insurance agent for almost 30 years now. Primarily I work with individuals and with small businesses who wish to set up insurance plans for the their employees.
Today has been spent mostly helping people strategize how they can stay in business while the government does not allow it. Restaurants can't have sit-down customers, but can at least offer delivery and carry-out services in most areas of the country. But what does a brewery do? At least around me, we do not have "take out beer". And with nonessential travel being thwarted in most of the US now, business volumes at all types of businesses are affected.
This scourge has several major facets, and the US is only at the leading edge of the timeline: First there is the virus itself, and individuals needing to deal with the medical and quarantine survival issues. Then comes the individual financial issue of living without an income. But behind this is also the impact on their employers: How does a business survive without customers? And at the back end of the entire discussion is the devastating impact this has already had on the world's stock markets. (In the US the loss is about 1/3 of total invested wealth).
For those of you in Europe or Asia--where on the time spectrum are your countries? How do you anticipate working through it? A wonderfully unique aspect of MRA is the representation of many different countries and regions. Some are weeks ahead of the curve I'm living on, some probably yet behind it. I'm interested in how you're dealing with this.
