The Great Rethink is a term being used to convey an alternate viewpoint to the Great Resignation. This alternative places an emphasis on the fact that many employees are taking a new look at their relationship with work. People are reexamining how their current job impacts both their career and their personal lives. This fresh assessment is guiding them to either stay where they are or look for a new job that better aligns with their priorities. With job openings at a record high, employers must also reevaluate their own relationships with workers if they want to attract and retain the talent they need. Three lessons we learned during the shift to remote work can help companies better navigate the Great Rethink. 1. Flexibility is key. During the shutdowns, the shift to remote work forced managers to change how they lead their teams and how work is done. It may have been rough at the beginning, but management styles adapted and technology stepped up to fill the gaps across the … [Read more...] about Companies Should Lean Into the Great Rethink

Doctored photos and film are a regular source of misinformation, whether it be celebrity gossip or political attacks. Vice President Kamala Harris is no new victim to this type of misinformation; comments she made about her pronouns at a recent White House event were pulled far out of context to enrage right-wing critics. It now appears that an interview with the vice president on CNN has been, rather professionally, repurposed to vulgar effect. The Claim A tweet posted on August 15, 2022, shows Kamala Harris talking at what looks like a CNN event with the question "Should women give h*** to get ahead?" displayed on screen. The tweet (archived here ) has received more thank 40,000 interactions and more than 1.7 million views as of Wednesday, August 17. During the clip, sections of Harris' speech are carefully censored to make it sound as if she is taking about oral sex. The footage was also shared on a number of Telegram channels, often presented as a … [Read more...] about Fact Check: Is Kamala Harris’ explicit ‘get ahead’ CNN interview real?

Any time the leaders of India and Pakistan (or China) are slated to attend a regional or multilateral event, the media and strategy community dive headlong into a high-decibel speculation about the possibility of a bilateral meeting. Though not formally confirmed, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to participate in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit at Samarkand, Uzbekistan in mid-September 2022, when India inter alia is to assume presidency of the organisation as well as host the 2023 summit. The newly minted Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is also expected to attend, triggering another round of ‘talkathon’. A similar speculation had ensued before the SCO summit in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan (June 13-14 2019) which was attended by Modi and Sharif’s predecessor Imran Khan. No meeting eventually materialised, except for a brief exchange of pleasantries in the delegates’ lounge. That too was disclosed not by India but the Pakistani foreign minister. … [Read more...] about Will PM Modi and Shehbaz Sharif Meet on SCO Sidelines in Samarkand?
LEE KYOUNG-HEE The author is the head of the Innovation Lab of the JoongAng Ilbo. A manhole is a hole through which people can enter and exit. It is a passage that vertically connects ground-level and underground facilities, such as waterworks and sewage, city gas, power lines and communication networks for repair and maintenance. Manhole covers prevent pedestrians and vehicles from falling in. The history of manholes dates back to ancient Roman times. Roman civil engineers built an underground sewerage system with bricks to drain waste. As people had less contact with wastewater, the risk of infectious diseases was reduced and odor dissipated. Passages to access the sewerage for cleaning were created, and stone covers were placed atop the holes. Sewage infrastructure was completed around 100 A.D., which contributed to Rome’s growth to become a metropolis with a population of over 1 million. But with the fall of the Roman Empire, little further development had been made until … [Read more...] about Manholes are a double-edged sword
SAN FRANCISCO — Tech industry titans have navigated a lot to get where they are today — the dot-com bust, the 2008 recession, a backlash against tech power, the pandemic. They have overcome boardroom showdowns, investor power struggles and regulatory land mines. But this summer, some of them encountered their most threatening opponent yet: multifamily townhouses. Their battle took place in one of Silicon Valley’s most exclusive and wealthiest towns: Atherton, California, a 4.9-square-mile enclave with a population of 7,500, just north of Stanford University. There, tech chief executives and venture capitalists banded together over the specter that more than one home could exist on a single acre of land in the general vicinity of their estates. Their weapon? Strongly worded letters. Faced with the possibility of new construction, Rachel Whetstone, Netflix’s chief communications officer and an Atherton resident, wrote to the City Council and mayor that she was “very … [Read more...] about The summer of NIMBY in the Bay Area’s poshest town
