A bakery in Tapanila, Helsinki called 🍰Rönttösrouva🎂 lost a huge chunk of their business in a blink of an eye due to the cancellation of all parties and gatherings because of the #coronavirus situation here in Finland.
However, these smart and obviously humorous people quickly came up with a product that could save the day - or the whole business, actually:
Their "toilet paper cake" is oat based with a passionfruit filling and, according to several news outlets, is selling like hell.
The bakery has also enhanced their home delivery capacity and according to the owners is working long hours to keep up with the online orders !

Good thinking, Rönttösrouva - best of luck and thanks for the "feelgood news" for the day ! 👍

Of course nobody could see this coming. The EU defending their interests with all means available to them instead of just rolling over and giving the UK everything it wants. I mean, what is the EU thinking?

Won't be long until the headlines in the Murdoch & Co press will scream about the unreasonable bully boy tactics EU. And mention that the UK won the war. And something about Dunkirk spirit.

Namd. Ich brauche mal einen Hinweis in welche Richtung ich recherchieren kann. Und zwar in Sachen #dezentrale #Organisationsstrukturen , #flache #Hierarchien , #Autonomie und #Resilienz. Ich habe ein bisschen rumgestöbert, aber wie so oft sind die ganzen interessanten Themen von #business #Experten oder #Esoterikern belegt und verseucht. Ich wusste bis heute zum Beispiel nicht wie toxisch der Begriff #Selbstermächtigung ist.

Hat jemand Interesse über dieses Thema zu diskutieren?

Was ist eigentlich erfahrungsgemäß die kleinste Anzahl an Individuen für eine stabile Organisationszelle und wie verteilen sich da die Aufgaben und Verantwortungen? Da muss es doch Erfahrungswerte geben.

Good summary on what leaving the EU means even with a "free trade" deal: A lot more bureaucracy and red tape. A lot. What a lot of people don't understand is that tariffs are comparably negligible these days, the real problem is all the documentation, the rules and related areas which create friction. And friction in trade costs money. A lot of money. Not to mention it reduces competitiveness.

Let's say there's a widget maker in Germany. It needs a part for its widgets. Two suppliers in Europe can provide them, one in the UK, the other in France. Both offer very similar prices.

Our widget maker has a sudden spike in demand and urgently needs more parts. One phone call in France and two hours later the lorry with the parts arrives. The UK supplier however has its lorry stuck at the border, may be because there's a border agent strike or because there's a problem with the certificate of origin or because there's an issue with some other paperwork or because you have to register your shipment 24 hours in advance. Or the widget maker has a problem integrating the part into the widget. One phone call in France and an engineer arrives the next day to sort out the problem and as certifications within the EU are recognised signs off on it. The UK engineer in the meantime is applying for a work permit, which takes 48 hours to process. Once that is sorted he arrives 3 days later and fixes the problem. Except that it then turns out he doesn't have the necessary certifications, so the widget maker has bring in an additional engineer from Germany to sign off on the work the UK engineer has done.

Which supplier is the German widget maker more likely to pick, the French or the UK supplier?

Not that the Brexiteers will care (much), as they will be least impacted. They might even gain. And don't care about the general population.

This kind of links to the earlier post about the Tories not being the party of business any more. While the UK hasn't fallen into a recession (yet) after the Brexit vote the reason for that is that the lack of investment in new technologies and the lack of training in new skills and technologies has been compensated by simply hiring more people (funnily from abroad). Now the Brexiteers will ignore the lack of investment but claim the increased employment shows how strong Britain is. Except, it isn't. People can be fired comparably easy. Investments in expensive machine sit on your balance sheet and hurt your P&L for a long time. Hence companies in an uncertain environment will rather hire more people than invest in technology. The remaining employees after the big let-offs not trained in new technologies will hurt your competitiveness and productivity for years to come. Good luck with trying to be a global and buccaneering Britain in a cut throat world market.....

Will wreck? I'd say no deal will only finish it off. That image is already largely wrecked. I suspect a lot of business leaders haven't forgotten now PM's Boris Johnson's "F*ck Business". Then the millions and millions of pounds the already wasted once and probably wasted again soon on no deal preparation. The chaotic Brexit negotiation by the Tory government, which again has brought business huge amounts of uncertainty and because businesses don't invest much in uncertain times has meant UK productivity has further fallen behind many other nations. The likely additional administrative costs any type of Brexit will bring to UK businesses. The increased difficulty and cost in attracting and hiring international top talent. The diminished (or better, lost) influence the UK will have on EU standards, but will still have to follow when they want to export to the EU. The diminished influence the UK will have on the world stage as it won't have the heft of the EU behind it any more. The lack of investment into education and infrastructure because of largely unnecessary austerity, also leading to the UK falling further behind other nations.

I don't understand?
The carmaker, based in Garydon, Warwickshire, last month downgraded its sales forecasts for 2019 from about 7,250 vehicles to 6,400, citing macroeconomic uncertainty in the UK and Europe, which face slowing growth and the threat of a no-deal Brexit at the end of October.
Surely all the Brexiteers will be queuing around the factory to buy a car from the last British carmaker? They won't be buying those horrible German cars, considering that they are not telling Merkel to give the UK a deal as so often predicted! Or Japanese, who are closing their UK factories

Waffling in Latin, ignoring details and claiming you just need to believe won't help against the harsh realities of economics and business. And no amount of money from the magic money tree will help to prepare for no deal.

Sky Views: We can't prepare for no deal nearly as much as you might think

Oh, and don't claim you weren't warned once it is too late and the damage is done. When thousands of animals had to be slaughtered pointlessly. When hundreds of small businesses built over years or even lifetimes have needlessly gone bust.

A few trade lessons the Brexiteers should learn. And the voters as well. Although if the voters learn and understand trade most Brexiteers will be out of a job.

Another well written comment on the Jeremy Hunt lunacy about letting dozens and dozens of companies and livelihoods go bust on the altar of (no deal) Brexit. On the plus side, I think this would probably be the end of the Tories. Everyone will know at least one, but more likely several people who lost their jobs and livelihood because of this lunacy (should it really happen). And once it hits friends or even family the vast majority of voters will not buy this "necessary sacrifice" bullshit.

South Korea's government will switch to Linux over cost concerns

Some governments might have fallen out of love with Linux, but South Korea appears ready to start a torrid affair. The country's Ministry of the Interior and Safety has outlined plans to switch government computers from Windows to Linux due to both lower costs and a reduced dependency on a single operating system. The Ministry will trial Linux on its PCs and roll it out more broadly if there aren't any major compatibility or security issues.

Delta’s test of free in-flight Wi-Fi may shame other airlines into offering service

Delta’s test of free Wi-Fi means the service is available on around 55 domestic short-, medium- and long-haul flight segments a day.

“Customers are accustomed to having access to free Wi-Fi during nearly every other aspect of their journey, and Delta believes it should be free when flying, too,” said Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Delta’s director of onboard product, in a statement.

"GILD is a case in point, where the success of its hepatitis C franchise has gradually exhausted the available pool of treatable patients," the analyst wrote. "In the case of infectious diseases such as hepatitis C, curing existing patients also decreases the number of carriers able to transmit the virus to new patients, thus the incident pool also declines … Where an incident pool remains stable (eg, in cancer) the potential for a cure poses less risk to the sustainability of a franchise."
