I happen to go to a coffee shop every weekend and while sometimes, there are new options to try in the neighborhood, I keep on returning to the same one. It is not only that the coffee is great, but I am also impressed with the staff.

Leadership has acquired interesting dimensions in this era of post-truth where public opinions are shaped more by subjective perceptions than by objective realities.
The Oxford dictionary defines post-truth as an adjective ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief’.
In this brave new world the distinction between truth and falsehood often gets blurred; between black and white there are ample shades of gray.
