How is it possible to meet the challenge of staying fit and leading group exercises when physical distancing has to be maintained in the school gymnasium? Patrick Wissell, physical education teacher at École St-Étienne (Dowling) and expert in the matter, was successful in rising to the challenge. Here is one of his recipes: start with a bucket, add noodles, then a few hoops and, finally, rubber chickens. Indeed, with the implementation of recent changes in our classrooms, he has been able to draw on his bank of ideas to develop dynamic and motivating physical education lessons for all the students of the school while respecting the physical distancing measures.

New York Giants Staying The Course Despite Covid-19 Outbreaks On Other Teams

New York Giants Staying The Course Despite Covid-19 Outbreaks On Other Teams

Despite being wrapped up with the dealings of his own team, New York Giants head coach Joe Judge is well aware of what is going on around the league, specific to the COVID-19 outbreak that continues to affect the Tennessee Titans, putting their weekend game against the Buffalo Bills in jeopardy.

The New England Patriots, whose quarterback Cam Newton tested positive last week, had yet another star player, defensive back Stephon Gilmore, test positive for the virus. That puts their weekend game against the Broncos in jeopardy as the Patriots wait to see if anyone else who came in contact with Newton tests positive.

Gilmore’s test result also now has the Kansas City Chiefs on high alert given that a postgame photo of Gillmore and quarterback Patrick Mahomes congratulating each other without face masks surfaced.

The Giants? They just returned the other day from a cross-country flight to Los Angeles. They will embark on yet another excursion this weekend when they go to play the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, the state of Texas, like California, currently considered a hotspot for the virus.

But despite the success of COVID-19 finding its way into some NFL locker rooms—the Las Vegas Raiders reportedly had one player test positive as well—the Giants are going about their business with continued heightened awareness, making sure they follow all protocols as prescribed by medial and health officials to keep the virus out of the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.  

“I think the league has already established protocols and

Dr. Audrey Kunin, M.D., Chief Creative Officer Of DERMAdoctor, Shares What It Takes For Your Brand To Have Staying Power During Difficult Times

One of the major challenges facing small business owners and entrepreneurs heading into Q3 of this year was figuring out how to take action and move forward in the face of uncertainty. But as we enter Q4 in what has been an undeniably complex year, it pays to take notes from those founders who have weathered many storms over the life of their companies. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Audrey Kunin, M.D., Founder and Chief Creative Officer of DERMAdoctor, on the factors that she believes have kept her award-winning brand relevant for over 20 years, and the key to staying on top when things seem like they’re ready to blow over.

Start By Doing What’s Rarely Done

As a young girl growing up in the 60’s with two generations of salesmen ahead of her, Dr. Kunin shared that it was her family’s encouragement that allowed her to hold onto her dreams of pursuing a medical career at a time when those thoughts were totally outside the norm. “They provided great support,” she said. “And no limitations to my dream.” 

After taking a dermatology rotation during her third year of medical school at the Medical College of Ohio, Dr. Kunin says she became entranced with the vast array of what the field had to offer. But as she became more experienced in her practice as a dermatologist, Dr. Kunin recognized the overall lack of accessibility when it came to personal care. Believing that the option to consult with a licensed dermatologist should be convenient, informative, and economical, Dr. Kunin launched DERMAdoctor at the end of 1998. Starting as an e-retailer back when the idea of websites and online shopping was just starting to catch on,

Wyclef On Staying Creative in the Pandemic, and Why He Loves Working With Women

Wyclef On Staying Creative in the Pandemic, and Why He Loves Working With Women


8 min read


Wyclef Jean likes to feel comfortable. This much is evident from the shag pillows piled atop the white sofa in his New Jersey home, where he’s hanging out for our Zoom chat on a recent Thursday afternoon. In a custom Soíremaín hoodie, he lounges deeper into said sofa throughout our conversation, occasionally springing forward mid-thought for emphasis.

Jean’s penchant for getting comfy and talking things through isn’t news to fans who’ve been listening to or watching the former Fugee’s pandemic-era podcast Run That Back, which will be dropping new episodes through the end of October. The show features the multi-platinum solo artist and producer’s musings on life and art, plus virtual conversations and low-key peformance sidebars with everyone from Clive Davis to Lena Waithe. It’s essentially the world’s most chill variety series.

Run That Back, like similar celebrity livestreams since lockdown, was borne of creative restlesness and entreprenurial necessity (see: a weekly segment sponsored by Bacardi). And it’s just one element of Jean’s current projects outside his recording career, which saw its latest installment in last year’s Wyclef Goes Back to School Vol. 1. He’s also venturing into the cannabiz. That’s in addition to investing in and advising for his business partner Madeline Nelson’s women-driven label/management firm, Heads Music.

Over the course of a spirited half-hour back-and-forth, Jean elaborated on a number of topics, including why female-driven projects function better and what he’s learned from Run That Back about compassion and creativity.
