The coronavirus has shaken up Disney’s biggest franchises — and Star Wars is the latest to be affected.
Disney announced Thursday it would push back the releases of the next set of Star Wars movies as well as James Cameron’s Avatar sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Over the last few months, it’s become clear that nothing can be set in stone when it comes to how we release films during this global health crisis, and today that means pausing our release plans for Mulan as we assess how we can most effectively bring this film to audiences around the world,” a Disney spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.
Germany and Ireland have both trumpeted their success in rolling out contact-tracing apps.
But is there any evidence that they are doing what they are designed to do – warning people they could be infected with the virus?
Not yet – and the privacy-conscious way in which they are designed could mean we will never know how effective they have been.
A new Harvard Business Review report shows the power of putting data in the hands of front-line workers, but it also reveals that it takes a lot more than just technology and tools to succeed.
According to the report, which was commissioned by ThoughtSpot and based on responses from 464 business executives, employees must be trained on how to act on insights when they have them and be given autonomy to make decisions in the moment.

If you’re not used to managing a team remotely, you may be tempted to micro-manage your team. You may want to check in more frequently, ask for status updates and hold regular meetings to foster a team environment.
The three meetings you should hold with remote workers:
All of this new administration and communication activities may interfere with employees’ productivity and lead to frustration all around. To make remote work more efficient and less aggravating, consider holding only three meetings:
While it’s a good idea to wear a headlamp when running at night, the things do have a way of bouncing up and down, and they only shine straight ahead. That’s why the Torch Ring was invented, as it’s worn on the hand – just like a championship ring.
The device was created by entrepreneur Kevin John Nadolny, who clearly has a thing for hand-worn gadgets. He previously brought us the Runbell, which is much like a bicycle bell, except it’s made to be worn on a runner’s fingers like a set of brass knuckles.
The Torch Ring consists of an oversized main ring, with an LED light on top and a cylindrical body underneath. As they run, the user holds the device by sticking their index finger through the ring and holding the body within their hand.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep the globe, many of us are getting used to wearing face masks to stop the virus’ spread. However, an Australian expert has warned simply wearing them isn’t enough. We should also think of our masks like underwear, and keep them, clean, personal, and on.

“The concept of actually taking your underwear off in public and putting them on a kitchen bench is horrible — but that’s effectively what you are doing.”
