The economy cannot go so fast without overheating. A big problem now is that no one knows exactly how fast it’s going.

Prior to the pandemic, the US economy seemed stuck in slow growth mode for some time. Productivity gains – the ability of workers to do more in a given amount of time – had declined, while an aging population meant that the number of available workers grew less rapidly than in the past. As a result, most economists estimated that potential gross domestic product growth, which measures how fast the economy can grow without causing inflation, had fallen. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that potential growth over the decade to 2019 averaged 1.7% per year compared to 3.1% during the 1990s.

The Covid-19 crisis has changed a lot of things, and one of the things it could have changed for the better is potential growth. New efficiencies developed during the pandemic look set to deliver lasting productivity gains, while the advent of work-from-home arrangements could ultimately increase labor supply.

Any increase in potential growth would count as good news for the Federal Reserve because it wouldn’t have to try to slow the economy as much as it would if potential is still low. And that would be good news for American businesses and workers, not only because it would reduce the risk of the Fed pushing the economy into recession, but because an economy that can grow faster can produce more in the form of profits. and salaries.

The problem is that there aren’t many indications of higher potential growth in the data. The Labor Department said productivity, as defined by what the average worker produces in an hour, declined at an annual rate of 7.5% in the first quarter from the previous quarter. Granted, these numbers can bounce back a lot from quarter to quarter, and the Q1 number was likely skewed by some of the same factors that led to a negative reading for GDP growth in the quarter.

In early May, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the central bank had approved a half-percentage-point hike in interest rates in a bid to curb inflation, which is at an all-time high. high level for four decades. Photo: Win McNamee/Getty Images

But since the fourth quarter of 2019, productivity has grown at an annual rate of just 1.1%. This compares to a rate of 1.3% in the five years before the pandemic. Meanwhile, the labor force participation rate – the share of the working-age population working or looking for work – was 62.2% last month, which, although on the rise compared to the previous year, was still below its February 2020 level of 63.4%.

Productivity is difficult to measure and data is subject to very significant revisions. It is also possible that disruptions in the supply of semiconductors and other items will impose temporary constraints on productivity. It could therefore be that the underlying productivity trend has increased. It certainly looks like changes like reducing time-consuming in-person customer meetings, restaurants moving to digital menus and the like should make workers more efficient.

Stanford University economist Nicholas Bloom thinks work-from-home arrangements, in particular, should improve productivity prospects. Worker surveys he helped conduct show that employers’ acceptance of work-from-home arrangements has sometimes increased after the pandemic. At the very least, it drastically reduces the time people spend commuting, which whether or not the time stuck in traffic is considered work time should help increase worker output.

Bloom also thinks work-from-home arrangements could potentially boost labor market participation. Older workers might delay their retirement and switch to part-time, for example, because doing half a day’s work takes much less time if that doesn’t include the hassle of going to the office.

However, it will take time to find out if this is actually true, just as it might take time for any of the hoped-for productivity improvements to show up in the data. Until inflation is brought under control and the labor market stops tightening, any optimism the Fed might feel about the economy growing faster will remain on hold.

If everyone is working from home, why are commercial office spaces booming? | Genetic marks https://urabandai-ss.com/if-everyone-is-working-from-home-why-are-commercial-office-spaces-booming-genetic-marks/ Sun, 08 May 2022 10:10:29 +0000 https://urabandai-ss.com/if-everyone-is-working-from-home-why-are-commercial-office-spaces-booming-genetic-marks/

Meveryone enjoyed working from home during the pandemic. They’ve been able to spend more time with their families, adopt more pets, enjoy the magic of delivery services, binge Netflix, swap their suits for sweatshirts, and even start an unprecedented number of businesses. All of these reasons – and many more – are why so many workers want to keep doing the same, even as we try to put Covid in the rearview mirror.

For these employees, here is a warning: prepare for reality. Employers plan to bring you back to the office.

Otherwise, why would Facebook rent an additional 300,000 square feet of office space in New York to add to its already occupied 3 million square feet? Why would Google spend $2.1 billion on an office building in Manhattan and expand its “sprawling campus” in the city to house its more than 12,000 employees? These are tech companies whose business is cloud-based… so why expand the offices?

And why would Manhattan’s commercial real estate market be ‘rebounding’ with CRBE tracking this stuff reporting that rental activity is up 100% year over year? March 31? “We just reached 95% occupancy, which is the highest occupancy in the building’s history,” said a New York landlord.

It’s not just a New York affair, either.

In Charleston, South Carolina, commercial vacancy rates are below 2% and nearly 10 square meters of industrial space is under construction. In Jacksonville, Florida, 2021 has been a “big year” for commercial real estate investors, with all product types showing increases in market rent, occupancy and buyer interest. Northwest Arkansas commercial real estate has its lowest vacancy rate since 2005. In Philadelphia, Baltimore, Santa Clara and Chicago, there is a post-pandemic “boom” in commercial and residential properties mixed use under development. Iowa developers say industrial spaces “can’t be built fast enough.” Office vacancy rates continue to decline in San Diego, Los Angeles and Orange County, California.

If everyone is “working from home” – as we hear over and over again in the media – why is the market for commercial office space booming? Yes, there is more demand for warehousing thanks to all those Amazon orders. But it’s also because of something else: not everyone is going to work from home in the coming months. They come back to the office.

Of course, large companies are still slow to bring their employees back. Large organizations from Goldman Sachs to KPMG – worried about poor public relations and potential lawsuits – are tentatively allowing employees to determine their own arrangements. But that is changing rapidly. According to a new study from Microsoft, more than half of business leaders want their employees to come back to the office five days a week. Even GenZ-ers view remote work negatively!

So, will these workers return? They will have no choice.

We know that many employees are reluctant to come back to the office. Last week, a study revealed that more than half of Apple employees would like to quit their jobs because they prefer to work from home. Other studies – like this one and this one – have shown that workers overwhelmingly prefer to continue working from home rather than commuting. Who can blame them?

But even if employees want to work from home all the time, that just won’t happen. The reality is that small business workers across the country – who employ about half of our workforce – have been back in the office for some time now. When I visit my clients, which are almost all small and medium-sized businesses, their employees are at their desks. If you don’t believe me, take a drive around the suburbs of your city and look at the parking lots.

There is no doubt that work from home arrangements are now an essential benefit that companies must provide. My best clients are reorienting their work cultures and doing their best to provide as much flexibility as possible to their employees. But there will be a limit. I don’t know of any that are going entirely virtual and very, very few that allow their employees to work remotely more than two days a week.

That’s because employers know the real work is done when teams can be together, face-to-face, and collaborate, innovate, and yes, even socialize. They also know that working from home can be difficult for some, cause loneliness and depression for others, and also provide opportunities to avoid the work they are actually paid to do instead of pursuing their side businesses.

Working from home is here to stay. But – judging by what we’re seeing in commercial real estate – companies are expanding, not abandoning, their offices. Many employers are doing their best to ease the transition for their employees. But in the end, it’s business. And business is done in a workplace, which means coming to the office – at least most of the time – is a reality workers are going to have to deal with.

		How do start-ups “think outside the box” for snacks and alcohol?

It is estimated that in the UK, between a quarter and a third of all household waste comes from packaging, with a significant share going to food and drink.

Food packaging is notoriously difficult to reuse and recycle, due to the safety and shelf life qualities that multi-layered and flexible packaging brings to the product. In the convenience beverage industry, packaging and transportation are seen as the two biggest pain points. And of course, the heavier the package, the more energy it takes to transport it.

At the same time, the UK is working to decarbonise all sectors of its economy to reach its goal of net zero emissions by 2050. Consumers also want to reduce their carbon footprint through the food choices they make.

As pressure mounts to reduce carbon footprints and meet consumer demand for more sustainable food and drink, nimble start-ups are reinventing conventional packaging. FoodNavigator hears how.

Sustainable snacking

The snacking industry faces many challenges when it comes to packaging. Not only are snack foods often fragile, but they also often have an irregular shape. Protecting snack foods, while ensuring extended ambient shelf life, is difficult.

Adding sustainability into the mix creates a number of new challenges.

British snacks start-up WARP Snacks, owner of snack brands Eat Real and PROPER, is working to solve these problems. The company has developed a plan to achieve this, which aims to reduce packaging, invest in renewable materials, completely reinvent packaging and collaborate with stakeholders.

WARP has made progress in some of these areas, Katie Leggett, sustainability manager at WARP Snacks, told delegates at the recent Futures Summit hosted by start-up network Bread & Jam.

Its PROPER brand, which makes flavored popcorn and lentil crisps, has managed to reduce, both in weight and size, the amount of film it uses in its packaging. He also did the same for the card used in his decks.

The investment in renewable materials is also evident in PROPER’s popcorn bars. Last year, the brand launched new packaging made from 30% recycled plastic. Leggett suggested the brand would be keen to do the same for the film in its popcorn and crisp packets, but a lack of available recycled content stands in its way.

The company has set itself the challenge of “completely reinventing packaging” with at least one product by 2025, and is collaborating with other stakeholders through the UK Flexible Plastic Fund, to work on plastic recycling solutions flexible.

Drink and dispose responsibly

In the UK, alcohol challenger brands are also working to reduce their packaging footprint.

Selecting the container in which a brand’s drink is sold – glass, plastic, aluminum or cardboard – can be a minefield.

If glass can be recycled an infinite number of times, it is often heavy to transport, and therefore energy-intensive. If aluminum cans are made from 100% recycled material, it significantly reduces its footprint – but not all cans are recovered (about 82% in the UK, but only 45% in the US). Cardboard is not infinitely recyclable and less than 10% of single-use plastic can be recovered from recycling.

Thomas Soden, co-founder and CEO of RTD cocktail brand Ace + Freak, sells his offerings in aluminum cans. Although aluminum cans are endlessly recyclable, when selecting beverage labels, Soden was surprised to encounter barriers to recyclability.

“We found that out of the three types of label material, two of them made the can unrecyclable,” he told Future Summit delegates. Ace + Freak selected a polypropylene label that can be removed and recycled as two separate raw materials.

Elsewhere, the canned cocktail brand is also reducing its footprint through recycling. The company does this in conjunction with its co-packing facility, whereby Ace + Freak reuses any excess boxes the third party may have. “It extends the life of that board…and it costs us less money. And I think [that comes from] this constant mentality of questioning everything.

Go off the beaten track

The global wine industry is dominated by glass packaging. An estimated 19 billion glass bottles are sold each year on the global market, suggesting that the sector is less reluctant to switch to more sustainable alternatives.

Image source: When in Rome

As 39% of the wine industry’s emissions are associated with packaging and transport, British start-up When in Rome – which understands that the two are intrinsically linked – is working to reduce this footprint.

Instead of using glass bottles to sell its wine imported from Italy, When in Rome works with three formats: cask-in-box wine, 100% recyclable cans and its newest paper-bottled wine.

The latter is essentially a bottle-shaped bag, explained Rob Malin, CEO of When in Rome. The paper bottle is made from 94% recycled paper and has an 84% lower carbon footprint than a single-use glass bottle.

Last year, Made in Rome was also the first wine brand in the UK to go public with its climate footprint through a partnership with Carbon Cloud. Malin sees the move as “just the start” of his commitment to “radical transparency” of the climate impact of his business activities.

Infrastructure Spotlight

The responsibility for tackling the problem of packaging waste cannot lie solely with start-ups.

A multisectoral approach, incorporating the public and private sectors, as well as consumers, is likely to be best adopted. And as WARP Snacks’ sustainability manager put it, it may not be the material itself that is the problem, but the “system in which they operate”.

“Plastic is not the enemy” Leggett told delegates, but for small businesses, “it is difficult to change the system”.

The lack of recycling infrastructure, for example, is a major barrier to recycling in the UK. While some flexible films can be recycled when consumers return them to certain retail stores, only WARP’s PROPER brand – which uses double-layer packaging – is eligible.

WARP’s Eat Real brand, on the other hand, uses a triple layer. “It’s because we export a lot of this product, so it must have different food safety requirements,” she explained. Therefore, Eat Real films cannot be recycled in the UK.

This is part of the reason WARP is looking to better engage with stakeholders, we were told: “We cannot solve this in isolation.”

Starlink coverage can make remote work far away https://urabandai-ss.com/starlink-coverage-can-make-remote-work-far-away/ Mon, 02 May 2022 22:03:41 +0000 https://urabandai-ss.com/starlink-coverage-can-make-remote-work-far-away/

SpaceX’s Starlink satellite network allows remote workers to work anywhere — in an authentic sense. As long as an employee’s satellite dish has a view of the northern sky, Starlink can provide broadband access.

For employers, Starlink’s coverage means remote workers in places like rural Vermont, Louisiana and Pennsylvania can be more resilient than when using wired and wireless internet. As long as Starlink users have a generator, employees can potentially continue working even in the event of a power outage.

Starlink said users can expect download speeds between 100 and 200 megabits per second (Mbps), but speed and quality of user experience may vary. Some users interviewed for this story said dropouts or short service degradations can impact Zoom and Teams video calls.

After installing Starlink about 14 months ago at her home in rural Vermont, Christine Hallquist saw 200 Mbps downloads and 80 Mbps uploads. Those speeds have dropped since then as Starlink adds customers. During the day, when you use it for work, the data transmission rate is around 30 to 50 Mbps for downloads and 12 Mbps for uploads, she said.

“It’s better than nothing, and it enables remote workers,” Hallquist said. She sees it as a stop-gap until fiber internet is widely available, something she’s been working on as executive director of the Vermont Community Broadband Board in Montpelier. The council, which launched last year, is overseeing a five-year rollout of “every address” fiber in Vermont, a billion-dollar investment paid for by state and federal governments and telecommunications companies. The first building grants for fiber deployments were awarded last month, Hallquist said.

Tom Evslin, who lives in Stowe, Vermont, is also a Starlink user. Although he now has access to fiber internet, he keeps Starlink because he is interested in the technology and has blogged about it.

In short: Starlink for remote work

Good enough for remote work

“It’s not perfect, but it’s certainly good enough for remote work,” said Evslin, who has a long experience in enterprise technology, which includes co-founding ITXC Corp., a wholesale provider American voice over IP call company, listed on NASDAQ. company until its acquisition in 2004. In 2016, he retired as president of NG Advantage LLC, a compressed natural gas supplier, which he co-founded with his wife.

When Starlink service gets weak, there’s a “very brief point” of signal degradation, Evslin said. He doesn’t see the problem on his side, but “people I talk to tell me that I froze for a moment or gave up”. He said it doesn’t happen more than once every half hour or less.

Starlink coverage requires a clear northern exposure. Otherwise, trees or other obstructions may interfere with the signal.

It’s not perfect, but it’s certainly good enough for remote work.

Tom EvslinStarlink User

“Even if there are only a few branches in the way, you can count on a lot of dropouts,” Evslin said.

The problem of tree clogging is something Forrester Research analyst Glenn O’Donnell knows from experience. He works in the rural Pocono Mountains and, despite promises from a cable provider, has been unable to get an Internet cable in Pennsylvania. It uses Starlink.

Starlink’s coverage is a “godsend for anyone who wants to step into the boonies and experience that quality of life while still being connected to the real world,” O’Donnell said.

But, he added, “it’s not perfect”, noting that it suffers degradation of services because of the nearby forest.

O’Donnell said he could experience a total loss of connection during video calls. “Outages don’t last long enough for something like Zoom or Teams to give up, but it will tell you, ‘Hey, you got a problem here,'” he said. He said it wasn’t a prolonged outage, but even a few seconds can affect a call.

Software Workarounds

There are workarounds to improve Starlink. Hallquist’s house in Vermont also has DSL, but the quality is poor. And Starlink drops for a few seconds at a time during video calls. To solve the problem, she uses Speedify, a software tool that can combine multiple Wi-Fi connections. She uses Starlink, DSL, and cellular wireless connections in concert to compensate for any bandwidth drops. She called it “really wonderful” software.

Speedify “looks at latency and loss” in network packets, said Alex Gizis, CEO and co-founder of Connectify Inc., which makes the software. So if the network detects latency and gets, say, 2 Mbps from Starlink and 3 Mbps from DSL, it adds the bandwidth of both to create a stronger connection without changing the IP address, he said. .

SpaceX, which did not respond to questions from SearchHRSoftware, recently increased its Starlink service rates from $99 per month to $110 with a one-time hardware cost of $599. Analysts expect continued improvements as it increases its satellite coverage.

“A seamless connection depends on satellite and bandwidth availability,” said Vivek Suresh Prasad, a consultant with Northern Sky Research (NSR), a market research and consulting firm in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It focuses on the satellite and space sectors.

SpaceX’s first phase involves deploying a network of more than 4,200 satellites, a plan approved by the Federal Communications Commission and the International Telecommunications Union. It currently supports over 2,000 satellites and added nearly 400 satellites in the first quarter of this year.

“More satellites in orbit will mean better connection reliability,” Prasad said, adding that SpaceX has received FCC approval for 12,000 long-term satellites.

In its latest VSAT and Broadband Satellite Markets report, NSR estimated that even with advanced fiber optic connectivity, the number of broadband satellite users in North America could reach 12.4 million households.

Starlink draws users to rural Louisiana

State Representative Mike Johnson, a campaign Republican from Pineville, Louisiana, announced Starlink’s upcoming availability last year on his Facebook page. He received more than 100 responses from interested people. He then held a mass video call with SpaceX’s Starlink officials, and some 400 people attended, “which is a lot for my area,” he said.

Starlink officials didn’t want the call recorded, “and they were very careful about the claims they made” about the service, Johnson said.

Starlink became available in his region in October and November last year, he said.

“The ease of setup was almost like an Apple product,” Johnson said. A user sets it up, plugs it in, gets a clear line of sight and finds a satellite, he said.

Johnson has heard of people in his district installing Starlink, and “overall it’s been positive,” he said.

Personally, Johnson said he didn’t see a difference between Starlink’s network and what he was getting from his wired internet. Louisiana, like Vermont, is also rolling out broadband with federal and state funds, but that will take several years, he said.

Johnson said a service like Starlink is going to have a significant impact on his district, given that some areas of his state don’t have good cellphone coverage. Real estate agents have told him that broadband access can increase property values ​​by 25%.

Frank Lampard is confident his hard work will get Everton to Premier League safety and praises ‘special’ performances from local lad Anthony Gordon | Soccer News https://urabandai-ss.com/frank-lampard-is-confident-his-hard-work-will-get-everton-to-premier-league-safety-and-praises-special-performances-from-local-lad-anthony-gordon-soccer-news/ Sun, 01 May 2022 06:06:46 +0000 https://urabandai-ss.com/frank-lampard-is-confident-his-hard-work-will-get-everton-to-premier-league-safety-and-praises-special-performances-from-local-lad-anthony-gordon-soccer-news/

“When you feel like things aren’t going your way, you have to fight your way out. That’s football. I’ve been there many times as a player and now as a coach, and the only way I know of is to Work your way out and work hard.”

We’re sitting in the stands at Goodison Park and Everton boss Frank Lampard is in a determined mood.

Still feeling the frustration of the decisions that went against his side through Stanley Park at Anfield last weekend, Lampard is clear in his belief in the quality of this Everton side and confident they will turn things around before the end. of the season.

But at the same time, he knows that only hard work will get them where they want to be on the final day.

This mentality was a hallmark of his playing career and he wants it to be the hallmark of the teams he leads.

After this afternoon’s training session at the stadium – which was held in front of the club’s sponsors and partners – Lampard quickly returned to the pitch alone, Common lengths of the Goodison pitch. “I wouldn’t call them shuttles,” he laughs. “I was more like a snail!” But it’s the mindset that counts.

“We have to have a very strong conviction,” he says. “When times are tough in terms of results and position, it’s important that you stay positive and know what you can do here and maybe things will work in our favor. We have to keep working in that Sens.”

Things aren’t getting any easier for Everton. After that tough test at four-time chaser Liverpool, they host Chelsea this Sunday.

Of course, for Lampard the game has added significance, given all he has achieved as a Chelsea player and his season and a half in charge. It will be his first clash against them since being sacked in January 2021, having finished in the top four and the FA Cup final in his debut campaign.

Will this familiarity be an advantage? “I don’t know,” he smiles. “It means you understand their quality and how they play because I’ve worked with most players up close and seen the things they can do. Maybe that helps a bit – but I don’t. I can tell after the game if it works in practice.”

Undoubtedly, however, Lampard played an important role in the development of two of Chelsea’s most important players: Reece James and Mason Mount. He gave them both their senior debuts at Chelsea and they became key figures at the club.

Mount is Chelsea’s top scorer and assist provider this season, while Thomas Tuchel, speaking after the 1-1 draw at Man Utd on Thursday, reflected on what could have been this season if the standout right-back James hadn’t struggled with injuries this term.

Lampard’s pride in what the pair achieve is evident.

“They’re great guys, really, really talented boys,” he says. “Nice attitudes, each in their own way, and I’m very happy for them because I know how they are as guys.

“I have a close relationship with these two guys in particular and others I worked with there – Tammy [Abraham] went his own way, Billy Gilmour and Fikayo [Tomori] and it was a real pleasure to work with these players at the club.

“It’s great to see, I wish them very well in their careers and I have absolute certainty that they will succeed thanks to their way of being. Even if they have a lot of talent, they have a great desire to be the best players and they are already there now.”

Lampard has another young starlet in his ranks at Everton. The future of 21-year-old Anthony Gordon was unclear during his time under Carlo Ancelotti and a disappointing loan spell at Preston in the Championship. But he started 11 of Lampard’s 12 Premier League games in charge and showed the bite and drive the Evertonians were desperate to see at Anfield.

“I was really impressed,” said Lampard, when asked how local boy Gordon had risen to the challenge. “He’s becoming more of a man, more of a leader with every game, every day. His dedication and talent are enormous.

“His feeling for the club, passing it on at such a young age is something quite special. I love working with him, I love him as a player. There are things he wants to improve and he can improve and that’s absolutely normal in terms of development. But what he’s doing for us right now is an absolutely huge player.”

Gordon’s trajectory and where it might take him is interesting. In his pre-match press conference on Friday, Lampard compared Gordon’s mentality to Mount’s. The Chelsea midfielder is a few years older and is now an England regular.

His feeling for the club: to pass this at such a young age is something quite special. What he’s doing for us right now is an absolutely huge player for us.

Frank Lampard on Anthony Gordon

So what must Gordon do to move up to this level in the future?

“Maybe a bit of end product,” says Lampard, referring to Gordon’s return of four goals and two assists this season.

“I would say that to his face and he would say that to me because he is so hungry to do well for the club. But when it comes to what he does, I can’t ask too much because he gives his all. He creates opportunities for us.

“Anyone watching the game [against Liverpool]he is up against one of the best right-backs in world football and everyone has seen the performance he has put in. Yes, that little end product but that’s completely normal, it will come naturally with development and the way it works.

Gordon has been with the club since he was 11 years old and Lampard is keen to harness that connection between the talented attacking midfielder and the fan base that will fill the stands we sit in for the important game with Chelsea.

But does this perilous situation put more pressure on Gordon, given his links with Everton? “Yeah but in a good way because he’s a smart boy,” Lampard said.

“It seems to me that he knows how to take it and it’s good to have players in your team who feel that way. That’s what you want. That’s why fans are drawn to theirs because that they feel like they are local guys who care so much and I feel the same way as the person who will be sitting here on Sunday.

“The fact that he conveys that on the pitch for us is a good thing.”

Sunday May 1st 1:00 p.m.

Kick off 2:00 p.m.


It looks like what happens inside this stadium will go a long way in determining Everton’s fate. After Chelsea, they have Brentford and Crystal Palace here. As Lampard says, they need to exploit that advantage at home – and ignite that fan base with the determination they show on the pitch.

“They’re an incredible fan base,” he says. “The support in this stadium, we feel it. We have to engage them, we have to play with an intensity and a focus and the basics that they absolutely and rightly expect. If we do that and they support us, they make it a very difficult place for people to come in. We have to use that, it’s as simple as that.

Everton manager Frank Lampard has said he did not expect to receive an apology from PGMOL after they were not awarded a penalty against Liverpool.

Lampard on the psychology of falling into the relegation zone

Everton’s defeat at Liverpool, coupled with Burnley’s victory earlier last Sunday, meant the Toffees fell into the Premier League relegation zone for the first time since December 2019. Ironically, on this occasion they beat Chelsea at home – and kicked off in poor form. for the visitors which led to Lampard being sacked by the London club.

But has being in the bottom three affected the mood in the Everton camp?

“I’m not sure,” says Lampard. “For me, it’s not because we understand our situation. It’s been very close since I’ve been at the club. It’s not easy to shoot that when you’re nearing the end of the season. reality is there anyway, whether we are one point, two points from the relegation zone or one or two points in. This situation is clear, we have to win games, we have to get points to stay in the league. To me, that just adds to the focus of what you need to do.”

Lampard on the tactical battle

How do Everton find a way to earn those three points against Chelsea on Sunday?

They recorded just 17 per cent possession at Liverpool and it was pointed out that Allan only managed one assist.

While Lampard will clearly want an improvement on those numbers, he says his side will once again have to bide their time without the ball – then strike when they do.

“Chelsea will have possession again,” he said. “We’re at home so we have to be patient up to that point because they want to lure you in with that possession and we have to be very smart with how we approach the game and understand that we have to be clinical in our times when we can attack or have possession.

“I think we did that pretty well at Liverpool, apart from the last bit, the last shot. Things didn’t go our way, I think we should have had a penalty, which was well documented, but we have to be clinical in both cases when we have our opportunities.”

How “Time Theft” Became a Popular Idea ⁠—and Why It’s Dangerous Nonsense https://urabandai-ss.com/how-time-theft-became-a-popular-idea-%e2%81%a0-and-why-its-dangerous-nonsense/ Fri, 22 Apr 2022 14:41:37 +0000 https://urabandai-ss.com/how-time-theft-became-a-popular-idea-%e2%81%a0-and-why-its-dangerous-nonsense/

Sounds like a bad thing: according to security card maker Swype, businesses in the UK lose more than £116 billion a year to ‘stolen time’. In a survey of 2,000 professionals, the company found that a high proportion of them had committed “time-stealing acts” such as doing laundry, cooking and taking a longer lunch break during the day. working day.

The concept of “time theft” is not new – in the early 1980s it was described by a trade journal as “America’s biggest crime” – but the shift to working from home has heightened suspicions of long-standing that companies and managers had about their employees. . It has also created an opportunity: the business of employee monitoring is booming. Amazon recently started selling its Panopticon, sorry, Panorama device, which allows companies to use security video footage to “monitor individual workstations to measure productivity.”

However, being inefficient or unproductive is not stealing. In English law theft is an offense of dishonesty – what makes it criminal is the taking of property knowing it belongs to someone else and it is wrong to do so. This cannot apply to time, because as far as we know it is physically impossible to appropriate someone else’s time. An employee can agree to spend time doing work and then not do it, but it is the lack of work that is the problem, not the time not spent.

Workers are paid for the product of their labor, whether it is making a chair, writing a will or cutting their hair. Even in jobs where people seem to be paid just for being there – security guard, understudy, peer of the realm – these workers are actually selling the work they can do if needed, not the time they spend in the building. .

So why have companies come to confuse time and work? Part of the blame lies with Reginald Heber Smith, an American lawyer who, in 1919, sought to bring Frederick Taylor’s “scientific management” principles to the Boston law firm Hale and Dorr. Smith decided that legal work was best quantified (and billed) in terms of the time it took – the billable hour, which he divided into tenths. A century later, lawyers and accountants are still billing their clients every six minutes.

Billable hour works for law firms. An automaker must factor in the risk that the price of steel will rise, driving up the cost of goods sold and potentially reducing its profits. If the cost of providing a law firm’s services increases, the fact that it is measured in billable hours means that the risk is borne by the client.

However, this doesn’t work so well for the lawyers themselves, because having to report every six minutes of your day is stressful and demoralizing. (A lawyer told me that his firm expected five to six hours of his time a day to be billable.) This helps explain why, despite the generally high standards of work environment and compensation enjoyed by the legal profession, its members are among the most stressed. workers in the UK.

Part of the blame must also lie with Georgian engineer Samuel Bentham, whose design of a shipyard based on the “inspection principle” was intended to allow managers to oversee all of its workers at once. The idea was popularized by his older brother, Jeremy, whose Panopticon applied it to prisons. In 2001, Canadian sociologist Laureen Snider wrote that the rise of neoliberalism had coincided with an increase in the “creation of crime” for employees: “time theft” became the crime of not being productive enough.

The problem for companies is that the measures taken to combat this imaginary crime are themselves counterproductive. Of the studies that have been done on workplace surveillance, most have found that it reduces performance or has no effect on productivity, but erodes trust and increases stress.

Research on organizational behavior has also criticized the presenteeism created by such practices: long working hours reduce productivity. Many behaviors described as “time theft” or “cyberloafing” (short breaks in front of the screen, going outside, even watching a video) have also increased productivity.

Businesses need to remember that during the pandemic they have benefited not only from government largesse, but also from their own workers, who have put in five to 10 overtime hours a week while working from home. This does not include all the time spent outside working hours thinking about work, reading e-mails and reading about subjects, which employers benefit from without paying anything extra. In the tightest job market in half a century, the real business opportunity is not trying to squeeze even more hours out of employees, but recognizing that people are more productive when they have the place to stroll.

Why meat is a very controversial product: a good or a bad product https://urabandai-ss.com/why-meat-is-a-very-controversial-product-a-good-or-a-bad-product/ Wed, 20 Apr 2022 20:46:00 +0000 https://urabandai-ss.com/why-meat-is-a-very-controversial-product-a-good-or-a-bad-product/ Meat has been a marker of class and gender divisions, sparked scientific revolutions and been at the center of wars.

When was the last time you ate meat? Today? This week? Ten years ago? Never? Have you ever had a fight over meat consumption with someone, whether it was about the environmental impact or the ethics of eating animals? Are you confused by the conflicting information about the health implications of meat? Do you feel guilty for eating meat but keep doing it?

From the controversial carnivore diet to plant-based “meat” and lab-grown meat, meat is everywhere.

Many of us eat or used to eat meat – except those who were raised plant-based due to family or culture. Even those of us on a plant-based diet can still eat plant-based meat to enjoy that familiar meaty taste.

Science journalist Marta Zaraska calls this centrality of meat in diets “meat addicted.”

After all, meat is one of the oldest consumer items, with records of early humans slaughtering animals around 2.6 million years ago. And ever since, it has been part of family rituals, spiritual celebrations and social gatherings. Meat binds us but not without objections and contradictions.

How did meat become so contested? Why do we hate to love it and love to hate it?

As marketing researchers, we recently delved into the root of these contradictions and discovered that meat has been at the center of controversies around morality, ecology, gender, class and health since the 14th century. in the Global North.

Meat: At the center of the gender divide

Despite the stereotype that meat is the domain of men, the recent discovery of a female body found with hunting tools at a 9,000-year-old burial site suggests that society may be wrong in its assumptions about who hunts for food.

Yet meat is culturally shaped as a gendered product, and this is a division seen in both its production and consumption.

Gender stereotypes about hunting and butchery are prevalent in that they shape women’s career aspirations, creating a lack of representation with only a few women choosing meat-centric professions. Men are also subject to gendered expectations regarding meat consumption to maintain masculinity.

Think about meat-focused shows like Epic Meal Time and how they perpetuate hyper-masculine gender performance. This depiction helps explain why plant-based diets are considered less manly and why some men are resistant to plant-based foods.

Meat reflects who has power and money

Meat consumption, both in quantity and quality, has marked symbolic divisions between social classes since medieval times. As author Maguelonne Toussaint-Samat describes in her book food historynobles and elite ate better cuts of meat, rarer meats that we no longer consider food (like swans), and specific parts of the animal (like eyes) – until the 16th century , they were considered gastronomic delights.

On the other hand, the working class consumed lower quality meat with less variety and frequency. However, slaughterhouses and factory farming helped meat become more accessible to the masses. The quantity of meat consumed is no longer a reflection of social class, but rather its quality.

More recently, factory farming has sparked discussions around the ethics and sustainability of meat production as well as its ecological impact.

Mass production of meat destroys natural habitats and biodiversity, it exploits and objectifies both animals and workers and affects the quality of rural life.

A future that includes less meat is a sentiment shared by animal activists, governments and even the United Nations as part of their strategy towards a meatless society. But many might think that’s not a realistic goal, because, after all, we’re addicted to meat.

Rethinking a world without meat

Meat has been a marker of class and gender divisions and sparked scientific revolutions, but data shows that people don’t pass meat up.

While the ideal meatless meat is expected to look, taste and feel like meat, scientists don’t know if it can replace meat and solve our problems. And the deep-rooted cultural contradictions and conflicts associated with meat will continue to shape our contentious relationships with it, the symbols it represents, and the moral discussions surrounding it.

For these reasons, meat – and its substitutes – will continue to be loved and hated. We can imagine a future without meat, but we may not be able to escape the cultural baggage brought by the meat past.
