Geeking-Out on Coffee
I am what you would call a coffee lover. My mornings are not complete without a morning jolt. My meetings become tedious without a cup of joe. My days are ruined if I do not get my usual fix of caffeine infusion. So yes, “lover” might be kind of an understatement.

We are still a month away before the official release of the gross domestic product data in the first quarter of 2022.

Political and Economic Resurrection
One important lesson I have learned is that life always offers us a second chance. Even when we experience failures and setbacks, life always gives us a do-over so we can try again and succeed. This, I believe, is the real message of Easter. The Resurrection of Christ symbolizes the possibilities for renewal, and the fact, that no matter how many times we fall, we can always stand up. As the famous proverb put it, “Fall down seven times, stand up eight.”
