    ARIES (March 21-April 19) You are entitled to project your own sense of order on this beautiful chaos. Why accept other views as the way it's supposed to be done? That's their way, and this is yours.

      Ludwig Mies van der Rohe said, "Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together." A bridge deal starts when you carefully put 13 cards together. How you play those cards, of course, will determine your score on the deal.

        ARIES (March 21-April 19) If you're not into it, don't do it. If you have to do it, then try to change the way you think about it. Make it about the action, not about the outcome the action will bring to you.

          Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric and a bridge player, said, "Number one, cash is king ... number two, communicate ... number three, buy or bury the competition."

            ARIES (March 21-April 19) Avoid self-promotion. The smart ones will understand right away what's great about you, so you don't have to tell them. The others wouldn't understand any better if you told them, so that's another reason to stay modest.

              Robert Benchley, a humorist who died in 1945, said, "Drawing on my fine command of language, I said nothing."

                ARIES (March 21-April 19). In the name of understanding where another person is coming from, you'll learn about things that don't interest you or you'll take part in activities you never thought you would. It will either build character or the relationship or both.

                A protest against China’s strict “zero-COVID” policies resurfaced in Shanghai on Sunday afternoon even after police cleared away hundreds of demonstrators in the early morning with force and pepper spray. Crowds stood and filmed as police started shoving at people who had gathered in the street and shouted, “We don’t want PCR tests, we want freedom!” Since Friday people have held protests across China, where street demonstrations are extremely rare. But anger and frustration have flared over the deaths from a fire in an apartment building in Urumqi that the public believes was caused by excessive lockdown measures that delayed rescue. A crowdsourced list on social media showed that there were demonstrations in 50 universities.

                Protests against China’s anti-virus controls that have confined millions of people to their homes spread to Shanghai and other cities after complaints the death toll in a fire in China’s northwest might have been worsened by the restrictions. A witness in Shanghai said police used pepper spray against about 300 protesters. They were gathered to mourn the deaths of at least 10 people in an apartment fire last week in Urumqi in the northwest. Videos on social media showed protesters in other cities including Nanjing in the east and Guangzhou in the south tussling with police. President Xi Jinping's government faces mounting anger at restrictions at a time when other countries are relaxing controls.

                A report issued by the state of Arizona says drownings, child neglect and firearms contributed to an increase in child deaths in Arizona during 2021. That marked the state’s highest rate of child deaths in the last 10 years. The review released earlier this month by the state Child Fatality Review Program said Arizona’s child mortality rate increased by 4.7% from 51 deaths per 100,000 children in 2020 to 53.4 deaths per 100,000 children in 2021,  The Arizona Republic reported.  A total of 863 children died in Arizona last year, up from 838 the prior year.
