Google Employees Home Until Summer 2021

By Eamonn Burke

Google has just announced that it will keep its employees working from home until July 2021, extending the previous mandate that was set to end after 2020. According to a spokesman, the reasoning by Google CEO Sundar Pichai for this extension was “To give employees the ability to plan ahead” and to help them “balance work with taking care of yourselves.” Certain employees, as stated in the previous plan, will be allowed to return sooner. Google has also partially opened some offices in other countries, although the extension applies to all major offices in places like the U.K and India.

Over 200,000 employees, across Google and its parent company Alphabet, will be affected by the decision made by Pichai last week after a conference with Google Leads.

Although other major tech companies like Microsoft and Apple still promise to bring employees back this year, the move is predicted to influence many similar companies to move in a similar direction as Google. The CEO of one such company, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, expects that they will begin to move permanently toward remote work.

Top 5 nutrition tips when working from home

1. Look for nutritious alternatives

If you’re worried about not being able to continue to eat well as particular ingredients are no longer in stock, try exploring other foods that could offer similar health benefits. We have put together a shopping list of alternative food options to ensure you’re not missing out on your essential vitamins and minerals. The key advice here is nutrition should still come first, but you may have to switch up some of your routinely used ingredients.

2. Stick to your routine

Spending more time at home can also impact when you eat. Whether or not you’re working from home, try to create (and stick to) a routine. This will help you avoid snacking on unhealthy foods. Eat your typical set number of meals a day and around the same time each day. If you don’t cook much or have more time on your hands than previously, now is a great time to start.

3. Stay hydrated

Keeping well hydrated is important for overall well-being, particularly cognitive function. If you’re working from home, keep a glass of water by you and drink throughout the day. Drink several cups of fluid each day including water, tea & coffee (though not too much!), fruit teas and sugar-free drinks.

4. Don’t forget your fresh veg

Fresh fruits and vegetables may have taken a back seat for you. Fruit and vegetables provide loads of essential nutrients and there are ways to extend their shelf-life and make them more convenient. For example, soups and sauces can be made straight away and then frozen. You can make a concentrated stock which you can then freeze in ice cube trays and, voila, homemade, low salt stock cubes!

5. Keep your stress at bay

There are many ways to reduce stress. Try to minimize the amount of alcohol you drink, especially during the week, which will also help you stick to a routine. Keep an eye on the number of caffeinated drinks you’re having and try switching to decaf options during the afternoon. This can help you sleep and focus better.

US Businesses Allowing Remote Working

The rise of cloud computing and teleconferencing represent both the biggest opportunity for growth as well as the most significant organizational challenge to companies around the world, according to new research from Condeco’s new research paper, The Modern Workplace 2019: People, places & technology, involving 750 corporate leaders. The full report can be downloaded here. Among the countries in the survey, remote working is particularly prevalent in Australia (45 per cent) with the US tied for being the country with the second most amount of companies allowing remote work (43 percent) and least widespread is Germany (35 per cent). However, US businesses were least likely to offer flextime (49 percent), while those in Singapore were most likely (66 percent). In addition, 43 percent of US business forecast that they will allow more remote working in the next year while only 9 percent have indicated that they will offer less remote working, a clear indicator that remote working is a major trend in America. 54 percent of US companies have said that they offer remote working to increase employee retention, which showcases employees increasing demands to work from home.

While recognizing digital transformation as crucial to their future success, 60 percent of those who participated express concern over the speed with which new technologies are reshaping their businesses. They are increasingly preoccupied with issues related to cloud computing, the internet of things, and big data.These technology challenges are contributing significantly to the changing nature of the corporate environment, the report finds. Cloud computing in particular has made it possible for increasing numbers of employees to work remotely and flexibly meaning that the central company workspace is rapidly becoming an administrative hub, rather than a traditional central focus where everyone gathers during set hours. The demands of regulation and compliance are also adding to the burden felt by businesses as they face the future. Condeco’s report is based on an in-depth survey of business leaders in six countries, including the United States, backed by qualitative interviews. Respondents overall say the biggest challenges facing their organizations in the next 12 months are digital transformation (37 percent) and the adoption of new technology (35 percent).

Across all countries surveyed, access to talent supply (26 per cent) and regulation and compliance (24 per cent) are considered greater organizational challenges than business uncertainty (22 per cent). Welcome to the flexible working revolution. Almost half of global businesses surveyed (41 percent) say they already offer some degree of remote working, while three-fifths (60 percent) provide flextime opportunities, allowing employees to choose when to start and end their workday. “The research clearly shows that businesses are in the process of transforming their workplaces digitally, which enables them to transform the way that they are used physically,” said Paul Statham, CEO of Condeco.”Today’s technology allows for space to be used more flexibly and for employees to work remotely. This benefits businesses by maximizing office space, reducing costs and by keeping employees engaged and productive.”

The end of meeting-room culture? When employees do go into the office, it is most often for meetings with colleagues and customers. Yet the researchers discovered that finding, booking and using meeting rooms is a consistent point of organizational tension, even as more people are working remotely. Fewer than a quarter of those surveyed (23 percent) say that their employees have access to meeting rooms whenever they need them; however, the US leads the world with 31 percent, compared to just 9 percent in Singapore. Only a third of respondents (31 percent) currently use specialist meeting-room scheduling software to help make efficient use of their available space. Some of those surveyed believed that there was an opportunity to use artificial intelligence to book and use meeting rooms more effectively.

“AI can release individuals from routine, repetitive tasks at work and free them up for more value-adding and enriching activities. That’s why it is likely to play an important role in meeting room booking software,” said Peter Otto, Chief Product Officer at Condeco. Businesses are only just beginning to realize the extent to which the need for co-workers to meet in person is a thing of the past, as new conferencing systems enable teams to maintain real-time collaboration and conversation across vast distances and multiple time zones.“Ultimately new technology will enable businesses to allocate their resources and time more effectively,” said Otto.“There is also a role it can play in gathering data, but companies need to be aware of the ethical and privacy aspects of using it in this way and be prepared to be fully transparent in communicating what they are doing to their employees.”

US leaders prepare for the future While a fifth of business leaders worldwide (22 per cent) said that uncertainty was a concern for them, less than one fifth of American business leaders (16 percent) echoed this. The most-common concern for US respondents is technology adoption (45 percent) and talent supply (30 percent), suggesting that businesses are expecting these to be major issues over the next year. Only 11 percent of US business cited access to capital as their top organizational concern.

FM Transmitter Technology

The best use of FM transmitter technology

The FM transmitter is offered by the GR Radio brand, which is capable of doing remote control transformer models with a plane to overcome the boundaries and boundaries. This is one of the many different channels available in the market RC transmitter, which are looking for the best transmitter for their models. For model owners, it is necessary to research different transformers to ensure that it is the correct transmitter receiver package for the needs of their models. Here we have the quality fm transmitter technology along with the features right here at http://www.bestadvisor.com/fm-transmitters

Types in fm transmitter

Fm transmitter types are larger than numbers, which feature nine different channels with 30 different model memories. This system has been able to handle three different types of models, including helicopters, aircraft and shines. Thus the transmitter gets its name.

This particular model of the transmitter is considered a pro model; it is serious about flying their models dealing with their needs. These people may be capable of a strong fm transmitter for small models and large models, because nine channels and advanced systems can handle both types of models.

Technology connection

This technology, which will be connects to the best receivers in the market. This particular model is backward compatible, however, that means it will work with any and all speaker receivers. This is a great advantage for those who were in the flight of the year, and allow them to use their own large receivers. The system uses DSS, or direct appointment sprinter technology. This means that the system is sprinkled with two specific channels for the entire flight rather than every few milliseconds between every single multimedia channels. It helps to provide an incredibly successful connection between transmitter and receiver, to ignore maximum interference problems and avoid any possible connection issues.

The best way of model match system

When considering the fm transmitter on another part of the technology, it’s a model match system. This system usually goes out of technology that commands just a specific transmitter. It only commands the recipient with specific model memory. It has helped many of the damage caused by their ships, because orders sent from wrong model memory can be argued on any flight model.

FM transmitter general technology

You need to see the FM transmitter general technology out to fully understand how transmitter will work for your specific mode. As far as aircraft are concerned, fm transmitter is failing; three wires curtains, flip systems, snap roll systems, and zero systems. There are three planes and timers available for the aircraft system. Features of the glider, apart from other things, two separate timers are as well as the flip to the flip and the Elion-to-Flip. System helicopter settings allow adjustable trim rate, timers, six programming, and six different potential flight modes. These are just a few specifications and benefits to get through this system. If you are looking for a strong transmitter for your pro model, it’s a transmitter for you.

VALEO x CES 2019

At CES in Las Vegas for the sixth consecutive year, Valeo is unveiling its latest technological innovations at the epicenter of the revolutions shaping mobility, i.e., the advent of autonomous vehicles, powertrain electrification and digital mobility. These three disruptions transforming the automotive industry are also driving profound change in society.

Valeo develops new technologies to make this transformation a reality. One example that can be seen and tested in the streets of Las Vegas during CES 2019 is Valeo Drive4U®, the Group’s first autonomous car, which is unique in that it can perform all operations using only Valeo sensors that are already series-produced (ultrasound, cameras, lasers, radars and LiDARS) and artificial intelligence. The vehicle is essentially equipped with a full-fledged digital brain that can process the inputs and learn from the scenarios it encounters in the city.

One of the key challenges in autonomous driving is safety. Road accidents are a global epidemic and most often the result of human error. Valeo’s goal is for its systems to significantly reduce accidents, setting the target of less than one major incident for every billion kilometers driven, which would represent a higher level of safety than in the aeronautics industry. To achieve this result, Valeo is presenting two major innovations in Las Vegas: Valeo Drive4U® Remote to operate autonomous vehicles remotely when assistance is required or even vital, and Valeo Voyage XR, which is able to simulate the virtual presence of a person – based in a fixed location – on board the autonomous vehicle during the journey. This means that the car could potentially be controlled externally by somebody who is aware of what is happening within the vehicle. Based on this innovation, Valeo has designed a new form of communication that allows a “stationary” passenger wearing a virtual reality headset to teleport into a moving vehicle.

Also with a view to increasing safety, Valeo will be showcasing Valeo XtraVue Trailer and Valeo PictureBeam Monolithic. The first of these two innovations causes a trailer or caravan to appear invisible in the rearview mirror of the vehicle towing it, making all maneuvers easier and safer for the driver. The second is a high definition lighting system developed in partnership with CREE, the US market leader in the manufacture of LEDs. The solution generates a high definition beam of light on the road without ever blinding other road users and projects information and images onto the pavement.

Lastly, since usage patterns are changing, with digital tools giving access to new ways of getting around, Valeo is developing technologies to promote their widespread take-up. Examples include the Valeo Clean Road app, which generates customized routes to avoid peak pollution areas, and Valeo Oxy’Zen, which can be used to activate air purification systems inside the vehicle cabin.

With these innovations, Valeo is once again demonstrating its capacity to imagine, design and develop technologies conducive to new forms of mobility that are widely accessible yet adapted to individual needs.

2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan, Effortless Everywhere: The Super Luxury Lifestyle Vehicle

By Shin Takei

Cullinan, the first, Super Luxury SUV from Rolls Royce came about because of demands from a customer base whose profile includes young or young at heart, affluent, demanding, cutting edge, stylish, leaders in their own fields and successful like the many readers of The 360 Magazine. You want to go all over the place without compromising comfort or quality whether on the highway or off road like in a Rolls Royce kind of way. The Cullinan is imposing as it stands tall and is unmistakably a Rolls Royce. Unlike the familiar two-box SUVs the Cullinan is a three-box design with a trunk area that extends beyond the tailgate. This is reminiscent of Rolls Royce from the 1930s which were equipped with an outside travel trunk for your belongings. The rear luggage area of the Cullinan is separated from the passenger compartment by a glass wall so that the passenger compartment noise level and temperature is controlled for maximum comfort. It will definitely stand out from the crowd and you will be noticed. It is powered by a 6.75 Liter twin-turbo V12 with 563bhp and 627lb-ft of torque with all-wheel drive and all wheel steering. Part of the All Aluminum Architecture shared with the new Phanton and future models, it offers incredible rigidity and features that expands the parameters of the flexible chassis.

The Cullinan features doors that open and close by a touch of the remote key or the door handles and the bottom curves inwards so that no trousers or long skirts can be soiled by dripping residue from the rain or having fun mid romping. The car also lowers itself 1.6 inches to make ingress and egress easy. Open the door and a whiff of exclusive leather aroma titillates the olfactory nerves. Beautiful wood veneers, jewel like finish on switches and knobs grace the interior. The high quality of the materials are what you come to expect from Rolls Royce and again Bespoke is the word here and there’s no end to what you can achieve to individualize your very own Cullinan. The central infotainment screen is now touch sensitive but there is the Spirit of Ecstasy dial in case you prefer to use it manually. There are two configurations for the rear seating; the Lounge Seat for owners with family that sits three across of the Individual Seats with a fixed center console that incorporates a drinks cabinet, Rolls Royce crystal whiskey glasses and decanter, champagne flutes and refrigerator. This luxurious feature come in handy when you deploy two rear-facing seats from below the rear luggage area by a touch of a button. These are no cheap jump seats but made to match the other leather material and interior feature sand is called a Viewing Suite. This is an elegant way to watch a cricket match or waves crashing near the ocean. It’s what we call a tail gate party on this side of the pond. By the way, rear seat passengers sit higher than the front so they have a commanding view out the large windows.

The Cullinan is at home on every terrain with the Magic Carpet Ride. There’s a Off-Road button commonly called the Everywhere Button that takes care of surfaces like rough road, gravel, wet grass, mud, snow and sand. This delivers torque to each wheel smoothly and without interruption. With input from electronically controlled shock absorbers, steering inputs, camera info and body and wheel acceleration, the air suspension system adjusts to current conditions a million times a second. In addition to the Off-Road button, there is a Hill Descent button and Air Suspension ride height button that makes it real simple to adjust.

The 2019 Rolls Royce Cullinan is a welcome addition to the Super Luxury SUV class with its elegant yet imposing looks and commanding presence. We anticipate the Cullinan to land on our shores late fall so we will be giving it a test drive then.
