why do you think

Rope-a-dope is a technique used early in a fight 
when you offer to your opponent outrageous, 
high profile targets, 

making you appear wounded and disorganized
 until they lose their poise and start swinging wildly, punching themselves out and eventually having little resistance 

to the brutal counterattack you’ve saved for later.

Muhammad Ali, a Muslim, was particularly adept at this.

don't believe the hype

now that’s progress

Romantik Seehotel J├Ągerwirt is a luxury lakeside hotel in the Austrian alps.
In Summer it features swimming.

In Winter, naturally skiing.

But last week it featured just fear.

In its third cyberattack this past year, hackers got into the electronic room key system and effectively shutdown new keys until a bitcoin ransom was paid.

“Ransomware” as this is called, has tripled worldwide in the past year.

The hotel intends to renovate shortly.
