Identity – April 5, 2017 Meeting Recap

No one is smarter than you!  Toastmaster Bob reminded us that we’re are all capable and intelligent creatures. Don’t be afraid to follow your instinct and be your own self.  You could just be ahead of your times.

A range of issues were discussed this week, from legalizing marijuana to finding flight deals to advocating for designated bus lanes.

We started off with inducing two of our newest members:  Nadaa and Megan.  Welcome Nadaa and Megan!

Our first speaker, Jueun with her expertise (in psychology), voiced her opinion about legalizing marijuana.  Is a social benefit or not? From the chart Jueun analyzed, there seem to be a positive relationship between legalizing marijuana and medical costs.  That is decriminalizing (legalizing) marijuana could possibly reduce our medical costs.  If we do it right, maybe there is a utopia world for both sides (as Mark would say)?

Speaker Camila, also using her expertise (as an pricing analyst), shared us a few secrets in getting flight deals: subscribe, book early, and book off season.  So dig in that junk mail, there might be a treasure in there!

Our third speaker, James, spoke about the much needed improvement in our  public transportation.  He proposed to have designated lanes for buses during peak hours. How does this benefit us? It is a simple and economical solution for our current congestion problem.

Amanda led our Table topics with the winner – Mireille, who proved to us that Cameroon is just not about the jungle and lions.
