The COVID-19 pandemic was incredibly costly, for the health of the population and the economy. But the next infectious disease pandemic could be even worse. Politicians can choose to prevent it, but they need to take action now, argues Joanne Liu (MDCM'91, IMHL'14, DSc'16) in Scientific American.  For this to happen, there needs to be a leader-level council that identifies gaps in preparedness, mobilizes finances where they are needed, and holds its stakeholders accountable.

2021 was an anti-climactic year for Black Friday sales. Global supply chains had been disrupted, inventory was very low, and demand was very high. So, retailers had little incentive to sell items at discounted prices. 2022 has been a little different, said Prof Maxime Cohen in an interview with CTV News. Some supply chain disruptions have been alleviated, and there is excess inventory in certain product categories. This set of circumstances encourages retailers to discount products more aggressively.

Europe’s energy crisis has highlighted the gap between the green energy production that we want, and the fossil fuel energy infrastructure that we actually have. When Russia cuts off the flow of natural gas to Europe, there simply is not enough green energy to compensate, said Eric Reguly of The Globe and Mail in an interview with Prof. Karl Moore for Les Affaires. Twenty years ago, green energy was growing faster than it is today, Reguly said.

The job that you think you are applying for can be pretty different from the work that you actually do. It’s crucial to know why this happens, says Associate Professor Lisa Cohen.  Sometimes hiring managers do not know precisely what their organization will need in the months and years to come. In other cases, the organization’s needs are evolving, and it needs to adapt to changing circumstances. This can be frustrating for employees, and can even lead to conflict in the workplace.

Global Traveler magazine named Air Canada the best airline in North America for the fourth year in a row, but this honour is a relative one, according to Prof. Karl Moore. According to Moore, it shows just how bad some of the other airlines in North America are. Global Traveler caters to an affluent audience of frequent fliers, and Air Canada does have an excellent business class product, with lie-flat beds and meals designed by Montreal chef Antonio Park.  For international flights, Air Canada is hard to beat, said Moore.
