5/19 (Sat.) To be, or not to be.. (host:Light)

Dear yoyo members,

To be, or not to be: that is the question:
There are many conflicts and dilemmas in our life. 
We will discuss this during our Saturday's meeting.

Session ONE : workplace 

(1)David has to do a presentation at work. 
There is one member that always makes sarcastic off topic comments after his presentations that the other employees always laugh at.
David feels the comments are meant to undermine his authority. 
The sarcastic coworker has lower rank than David but is not a subordinate and in another department altogether. What should David do?
(2)Foster works at a giant company doing web development. Foster
handles the same web development task again and again. The chances of
promotion are small but Foster commands a very high salary even if the
work is becoming increasingly boring. Foster is a very talented
programmer and a startup company headed by an old college friend wants
him to get in on the ground floor and Foster will own a fifth of the
shares of the new company. Foster is aware that these sort of startups
generally fail but the thought of being the next Steve Jobs excites
him. However, he recently bought a very expensive house and the
monthly payment is no problem with his current salary but might be a
problem if your salary is drastically reduced as it would be with the
startup. What should Foster do?
(3) Pick more question from https://foxhugh.com/non-fiction/36-workplace-scenarios/
(4) Share your tips to handle the conflict in the workplace.

Session TWO :Family, Relationships and others
(1) If your opinions and values are different from your parents, How do you handle it?
(2) Love or Bread, Which is more important for you and why?
(3) What's your opinion about having long distance relationship? 
(4) Is any conflict issue that you want to talk about with us?
(5) What are the pros and cons of conflict?
