Here we are now in the time of transitioning from the severe impact of the pandemic to what will be a new normal.

Meanwhile, we have some indications based on trends we're seeing. That is what the five articles in this issue are focused on.
Hoping you can stay cool now that the summer heat has arrived. We'll be back with some summer reading for you in our next eNewsletter issue sometime in July.
