A Holiday Weekend Potpourri

The World Bank and IMF recently released a joint note, COVID-19: The Regulatory and Supervisory Implications for the Banking Sector (here).  It’s a great resource for those focused on banking, offering “a set of high-level recommendations that can guide national regulatory and supervisory responses to the COVID-19 pandemic” and “an overview of measures taken across jurisdictions to date.”  Annex 1: Overview of Statements and Guidance Provided by Standard-Setting Bodies in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic is a particularly helpful reference.  

Yesterday’s post by Ann Lipton about DoorDash and pizza arbitrage reminded me that food is a really fun, relatable topic for legal/classroom discussion, especially in a transactional or entrepreneurial law course.  In the current issue of Food & Wine, I enjoyed “From the Lawyer’s Desk,” a short blurb attached to the article, Positive Partnerships One reason why chefs are partnering with hotels to open restaurants? Risk reduction, in which hospitality lawyer, Jasmine Moy, discussed common chef-hotel partnership deals.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a link to this for readers, but I did see other legally oriented possibilities (for example, Don’t Open a Restaurant Until You Read This).   

Breath.  Both Joan Heminway and I have posted about the importance of paying attention to your breath (here).  Whether you’re blogging, barbecuing, biking, prepping a summer course or just chilling this weekend, you can’t go wrong in paying attention to your breath: The Healing Power of Proper Breathing.

I want to wish all BLPB readers a very happy, healthy Memorial Day weekend! 

Above all this Memorial Day weekend, I want to remember, honor, and thank all of the brave military men and women who died while serving our country.
