I hope you had a great weekend!
Here are the three articles that caught my eye (I can guarantee you that one article is how tech has impacted the entertainment world (my specialty). The other two? If the headline caught my eye, it’s probably in this email newsletter).
Have an awesome and positive day!
I love you all!
1) Hi! It’s me! Disney+
Tech’s impact on Disney? It can make some money with Disney+ (and that’s why more Disney movies are headed to Disney+).
Keep in mind that most of Disney’s profits comes from their parks. Since most of them have closed due to the pandemic, the only sources of income for the company? It’s media division (excluding the film division. That’s shut down as well as movie cinemas are closed).
P.S. A S/O to my friend Nicole (@NicMacYogi) who grasped this in 5 seconds
P.P.S You should check out her free online yoga class. Details in her Twitter profile and here.
Wow! That’s a big difference. Guess the Disney parks must be playing a bigger role in comparison to their channels and other entertainment sources.

2) Why are you staring at me?
Here’s one way to get your “fans” back into your sports stadium during the pandemic. Use cardboard cut outs of them (this article is behind a paywall but the headline says it all):
3) Food hall > Restaurants
Your favorite restaurant might not survive during this pandemic (high rent, inability to pivot to online ordering etc). The solution? Food halls (this article is behind a paywall but the headline says it all).
The key idea? “The percentage-rent food hall model is one that’s better aligned (in) interests for both the landlord and the tenant,” Schneck said. “They both do well in the good times, and they both struggle equally during down times.”
Stay at Home Workout
You don’t need a fancy at home gym filled with weights etc to workout when you can use your bodyweight (build your strength):
Positive thoughts = amazing life
Negative thoughts = ugh life.
