Certain industries were decimated as they require face to face contact with customers. Others adapted quickly as working remotely became the norm when possible. Below are modifications along with the adaptability of certain industries versus others.

Restaurant Industry
The restaurant industry is still struggling with a number of closures or takeout/delivery options only. Restaurants that would have never offered their food for delivery had to make a change. Keeping as many employees with a job was the goal of many while others simply tried to stay in business at any cost. The opening of restaurants that kept social distancing in mind was implemented. Certain states like Florida threatened bars would  lose their liquor license if they broke social distancing rules. The industry will continue to feel the impact of the pandemic despite adapting. The length of this negative impact is not known due to the uncertainty of people going back into public places before a vaccine is created.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About Shillelagh Sticks

Posted March 8th, 2018 by Martin

Whether you are recovering from surgery that makes it difficult to walk, like knee or hip replacement, or if you simply want to give yourself the “look of the Irish,” a shillelagh can give you the look you want. The short walking cane gives you a jaunty, unique look that you can’t get from other types of canes and walking sticks. In addition, pairing the cane with fun hats for men can create a look that is yours alone. These five fun facts will give you more insight into the unique walking stick with a distinct Irish connection. 

How it Got Its Name

The shillelagh stick has been known by many names. In Gailic, it is called the bata, which translates to fighting stick. It is believed that it originated in the Shillelagh Forest of County Wicklow, a forest that was once famous for its massive oak trees. Because the oak was known as “Shillelagh oak,” the stick became known for the oak that was used to create it. At times, the knob on the end was filled with lead after being hollowed out. When this happened, the walking stick became known as a loaded stick. Some of the canes were made from blackthorn root which made it unnecessary to add lead as the knob would have been heavy on its own. To cure the stick, they were often buried in a manure pile or placed by a chimney after being spread with butter.

When you decide to start your own business, it's an exciting time. You're full of ideas on how you'd like the business to run, and you can't wait to get started. However, if you're not careful, you could rush into the process, and end up making some critical mistakes. New businesses are fragile, and you want to do everything in your power to ensure that they survive, and then prosper. The key to doing this is asking yourself some important questions, and taking the time to flesh out the answers in depth. Here are a few of those questions you should ask yourself before you start your business.

Where Will Your Business Be Located?

First up, you should know where your business is going to be. Is it a home based business? A brick-and-mortar store? Do you need a warehouse to store supplies or inventory? Each option comes with a host of other questions, and so you need to think about this early. Even if you've already settled on a location, you should take the time to reconsider your choice, and see if there is a better one out there for you. According to Irene Dickey of the University of Dayton's School of Business, in the brick and mortar retail world “the three most important decisions are location, location, location.” This applies to other businesses as well, so take plenty of time to think this over.
