Anne-Laure commented on Low-cost quick production and design of face shields

Hi Arjan Tupan nice reading you! I hope all is well.
In the examples shared, it was more faculty, staff or start up hosted in NYU incubators than students (who can't be on campus) although a few of them helped with some of the design.
In any case, I agree I found the collaboration and open source element inspiring.

Anne-Laure commented on How to connect with family members abroad

Thank you Luisa Fernanda  I hope your mother is doing fine. I have a similar approach of using multiple sources of information in an effort to triangulate. I feel like you regarding the flow and pace of information. Another issue I am faced with is about how to make sense of the information I'm reading. I tried to listen to multiple points of view but sometime I am not sure how to make sense of it. For example try to understand different national approaches including countries which don't embrace full confinement. I do follow the rules and stay at home but I want to keep asking questions and wonder why the difference (this might just be my personal stance).
