Notations For the Weekend: On #India, #US & a sense of Hope

It is another week-end here in #outsiders.    The grid has been "abuzz" about all that has been going on with the leader of Dayesh (also known as the Islamic State or ISIS) being killed.    It is also quite extra ordinary as reports have been circulating around the World on a private letter by #POTUS (President of the United States) to Ayatollah Khameini of Iran and as stories have circulated to potentially prepare the public for a deal with Iran.

There is also of course, the US Elections.   We here @ #outsiders released insights on it earlier in the week.    The Democrats have noted that they would have a comprehensive review of the state of the party in lieu of the results.    The US Sunday Public Affair Shows will feature GOP Stalwarts who have been reaffirmed as stars as the Economist of London noted what is ahead:

The challenges being faced by the World has opened up the debate on the efficacy of Post-World War II institutions and whether they are effective enough in managing conflicts and challenges around the World today as epitomized by this seen on Twitter earlier today:





But this admonition of Brian Tracy holds ever so true that all should take stock off as they assess their World and the roadmap ahead:   



In some ways, it underscores what #Outsiders is dedicated to as it thinks about our World, assesses the best out there and hopefully reinforces a sense of hope and optimism.
