The newest tagline on the television news is “[fill in the blank] is going to look different this year…”
Well, guess what: Everything looks different this year, thanks to the pandemic.
In the fall issue of DCA’s Consumer Connection magazine, the writers take a look at what’s become different in 2020, such as:
- Athletes competing without the roar of the crowd
- Combating anxiety with mindfulness
- Architects designing safer, healthier, public spaces
- The absence—and importance—of the power of the human touch
- William Prasifka, the new Executive Director of the Medical Board of California
The writers also take a look at how long-time, well-known issues are being looked at in new ways, including:
- The pervasive problem of domestic violence; how to help victims and how to help stop it
- How autism in girls looks and needs to be treated differently than that used for boys
- Accountancy is not just addition and subtraction but an exciting career choice
But don’t worry: Some things in the magazine are the same, such as answers to your questions in #AskDCA, news briefs, and other information for consumers and licensees to keep you safe and informed in these up-and-down times.
So what’s the big deal about normal, anyway? Normal is what you make it. Wear you mask. Stay safe. And while you’re quarantining, read the Consumer Connection!
