Privacy Matters - Also in a Time of Corona

Wittenborg lecturer Stanley Mbelu (LL.M) co-authored a recent paper on the subject with fellow academic Fortune Nwaiwu from the Tomas Bata University in the Czech Republic. It was published on Social Science Research Network.

Saloni Gulati, one of our IBA students in Logistics and international trade, moved to another city, Den Haag, at the beginning of the pandemic. Den Haag is famous for its beautiful beach, royal buildings, 30 well-maintained theatres and more than 40 museums. Summer is exquisite in this city and Saloni spends her days exploring these beautiful spots whenever she needs a break from working on her thesis. At the weekends, she also does a little bit of part-time work for a change of scene. Moving to the pretty city of Den Haag was one of the best decisions she has taken this year, Saloni explained.

"A bad workman always blames his tools"

“A bad workman always blames his tools” is an old adage which surfaced sometime in the 13th century or earlier.  As the sentence implies, it criticises a person who always puts the blame on other people or things for his or her own failure.  Sometimes, we forget that it is not the tools we use which make us good, but rather how we employ them.
