    Goldman Sachs has launched a wave of mass layoffs of workers across the US after dishing out cushy bonuses and high salaries during pandemic - amid an anticipated drop in earnings as the economy slows. The investment-banking division of the Wall Street giant launched the effort last week, according to a report, firing hundreds of bankers in offices across the globe, as it looks to rein in expenses and weed out low-performing employees. Employees at all levels were affected by the cull, sources said - with the brunt of the effort being felt by senior-to-mid-level staffers, such as several senior associates and vice presidents. Nearly a dozen bankers in the prestigious bank's technology, media and telecommunications division were fired alone.  Consumer retail, health care and industrials divisions were all reportedly hit by layoffs, which had been anticipated after the firm said back in July that it planned to slow hiring and reinstate annual performance reviews, Bloomberg reported.  That announcement came as the bank recorded a marked 40 percent drop in earnings this year alone after seeing a brief business boom during the pandemic. This spurred...

    ANOTHER year, another round of A-level results – and with it the usual agony and ecstasy. For every successful student pictured jumping for joy, there were those, like Dylan, who opened his results live on GMB only to find he hadn’t achieved the B grades he was hoping for. 7Education in this country is a disgrace with the yearly charade of A-levelsCredit: Getty 7Student Dylan opened his results live on GMBCredit: ITV Reporter Pip Tomson tried her very best to paper over the excruciating on-air awkwardness, but Dylan was not alone. Results day was an even more anxiety-inducing this year as exam graders were told to mark papers more harshly and pupils warned to brace for “disappointment”. This has been all in the name of tackling “grade inflation” — and rightly so. Last year, a record 45 per cent of papers were graded A or A* as exams were scrapped because of Covid and teachers were asked to dish out grades instead. This is compared with 25 per cent achieving the top grades before the pandemic. And a...

    POLLEN levels are set to soar again this weekend. It will bring misery to millions who suffer with the frustrating seasonal illness. 1Hay fever levels will be high today and then again on bank holiday MondayCredit: Getty - Contributor The Met Office issued a warning, saying: "Pollen levels will be high at times across parts of England over the next few days, with both tree and a little grass pollen airborne." Today is going to be especially bad for much of England and Wales, with the pollen count expected to be "high". It will ease off slightly on Sunday, before the East of England is hit with high levels again on Monday.

    Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is preparing to release a series of new documentaries for season two of Tucker Carlson Originals, one of which goes in a really…um, shirtless direction of making his point about masculinity in America. It was about 6 months ago when Carlson caused an internal and external uproar for Fox News by releasing a documentary full of conspiracy theories about the storming of the U.S. Capitol. On Friday, Fox Nation featured Carlson as he ran through several previews for his new projects, which includes The End of Men. Here’s how Carlson introduced the documentary: One of the biggest stories of our lifetimes is the total collapse of testosterone levels in American men. Those levels are declining by roughly 10 percent per decade, completely changing the way people are at the most fundamental level. The NIH doesn’t seem interested in this at all (sarcastically) “It’s not a big deal.” We think it is a huge deal, so we wanna know what’s causing it and what we can do about it. From there, Carlson ran the trailer, which...
    (CNN)There is now more optimism that the worst of the coronavirus pandemic may be ending -- and as other nations lift certain Covid-19 restrictions, some public health experts question whether US counties and cities should consider easing their guidance on mask-wearing or social distancing, as well.But others warn not to relax such measures too soon.After the Omicron wave, heres what experts say could come next in 2022Denmark has decided to lift all Covid-19 restrictions within the country, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen announced Wednesday evening, adding that Covid-19 "should no longer be categorized as a socially critical sickness.""Denmark will be completely open from 1 February," Frederiksen said.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — In the largest outbreak in Minnesota’s prison system in months, nearly a quarter of the inmates in St. Cloud have COVID-19. The Department of Corrections reports 242 positive cases right now at that facility alone. As WCCO found, it comes at a time staffing levels inside are being called into question. READ MORE: Eden Prairie Police Dept. Honored For Efforts To Recruit Volunteer Reserve OfficersThe Department of Corrections told WCCO it’s working with the Department of Health to get to the bottom of the outbreak in St. Cloud since protocols haven’t changed. They point to a variety of factors at play: growing rates of community spread, needed booster shots as vaccines wear off, along with social distancing and mask compliance issues among staff during break times. They also say environmental factors have played a role as the heating system has started and fresh air isn’t an option. About 80% of Minnesota’s prison population is vaccinated. Meanwhile, 65% of corrections workers are. New COVID-19 concerns at Minnesota prisons come at a time the union representing corrections officers...
    (La Paz)Bolivia's highlands city of La Paz has been hit by an unusual heatwave, with levels of ultraviolet (UV) radiation soaring off the charts, exacerbated by unusually low levels of cloud cover some experts link to climate change.Levels of UV radiation have at times in recent weeks hit 21 on a scale that normally only goes up as far as 20. According to the World Health Organization, a UV index of 11 is regarded as "extreme," with people cautioned to avoid exposure to the sun."The sun is burning. This sun isn't normal," said La Paz resident Segundina Mamani, as people in the city at 3,600 meters (11,800 feet) above sea level tried to keep cool by eating shaved ice and keeping to the shadows.The high-altitude Andean regions of South America can be hit by some of the most dangerous levels of UV radiation in the world, with numbers that have at times reached record heights of above 40 on the index. But a number between 11 and 17 is more typical."This is an issue that has literally had La Paz...
    In this article, ComputerHoy could receive a commission for your purchases. More information. Barbecues are in high season in summer, although they are not too many throughout the year. If you want to buy one to use at home, an electric model is a comfortable, ecological and much less cumbersome option. Who doesn’t love a good barbecue?

    March 19, 2021 | 6:02 pm As part of the International Day of Happiness, the World Happiness Report (WHR) was published, which in this edition reviewed the impact of the pandemic on people’s happiness levels. One of the main results is that the countries that in other years have been the happiest, such as Finland, maintained their positions during 2020. Thus the list of the happiest is made up of Finland, followed by Denmark, Switzerland, Iceland and the Netherlands. . Mexico ranked 46th, below Chile and Brazil, the best-placed Latin American countries on the list. The last places are occupied by Cambodia, India, Jordan, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. However, globally, the number of people who felt sad or worried increased by 10%. Another of the findings was the importance of trust, especially given the implementation of strategies to reduce infections and the mortality rate, since in countries where there is more trust in public institutions, they benefit from better results in the fight against the pandemic. . Factors supporting successful COVID-19 strategies include trust in public institutions. Trusted public institutions...
    (CNN)In the fight against Covid-19, the pulse oximeter has been an essential tool for doctors and other medical professionals. But the small device that monitors oxygen levels may not work well for people with dark skin, according to multiple studies and government health agencies. Pulse oximeters, which have increased in use during the pandemic, may yield inaccurate results, the US Food and Drug Administration warned Friday. Earlier in week, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also updated its coronavirus clinical guidance to warn doctors and nurses that data from several studies suggest skin pigmentation can affect the accuracy of the devices."While pulse oximeters may be useful for estimating blood oxygen levels, these devices have limitations that can result in inaccurate readings," Dr. William Maisel, director of the Office of Product Evaluation and Quality in the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, said in a statement.Pulse oximeters are small clamp-like devices that attach painlessly to a patient's finger and constantly monitor the amount of oxygen in their blood. Covid-19 is a respiratory illness, meaning it attacks the lungs...
    Federal law enforcement at the southern border encountered more than 78,000 people in January attempting to illegally enter the United States from Mexico, the highest number since the humanitarian crisis in the summer of 2019. “This is not the time to come,” Troy Miller, senior official performing the duties of U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner, said in a statement issued late Wednesday. The 78,000 people encountered in January more than doubles the 36,000 during January 2020. Half of all people encountered last month were adults from Mexico, a change from the majority of families who showed up on the border in 2019. Approximately 75,000 of the 78,000 tried to cross illegally and were apprehended by Border Patrol agents who are stationed between official crossing points where vehicles and pedestrians are supposed to pass through to enter the U.S. The remaining 3,000 people were denied by CBP Office of Field Operations officers working at the border crossings. CBP data revealed that more than one-third of those who snuck across the border were caught on at least one other...
    The US economy is set to grow faster than expected - reaching pre-pandemic levels by the middle of this year, according to the Congressional Budget Office.  In data released Monday, the government number crunchers said unemployment is set to fall to 5.3% - from 6.8% in 2020 - by the end of 2021. Still, it will take until 2024 for unemployment to fall to levels seen before the COVID-19 pandemic struck and whacked the job market.  The economy will grow 4.6% in 2021 after contracting 3.5% in 2020, powered by a resumption of business activity and coronavirus rescue spending, the CBO says.  That's faster than what had been predicted in July, The Wall Street Journal reports. The agency said then that the economy would not be back pre-pandemic levels until mid-2022.  The CBO said its forecasts had changed 'in large part because the downturn was not as severe as expected and because the first stage of the recovery took place sooner and was stronger than expected'.  Still, growth will taper off to below 2% by the end of the decade, the CBO projects.   The...

    The coronavirus saps men's testosterone and leaves them more susceptible to falling seriously ill as well as robbing them of their sex drive, a study suggests.  Researchers in Turkey analysed levels of the sex hormone in 200 men who were in hospital after they tested positive for Covid-19. More than half (51 per cent) had developed a condition called hypogonadism, in which their bodies did not produce enough testosterone. On average, participants' levels were drained by 30 per cent post-infection to borderline unhealthy levels. Academics claimed there was a direct correlation between severe illness and lower testosterone levels.  But, even among men who showed no symptoms of the virus at all, two thirds reported having a lowered sex drive – a tell-tale sign of low testosterone.  As well as being key in the development of sex organs and muscle growth, testosterone also helps regulate the immune responses, including fighting viral infections. Low levels have been linked to an increased risk of dying from the flu, as well as inflammation, heart disease and high blood pressure. University of Mersin scientists, behind the study,...
    It's going to be really hard to make her scary. Gee, who'd figure that a woman of color on the presidential ticket against Donald Trump would make him lose his sexist, racist mind? The good news is, the Associated Press is reporting it as such: "[T]he racism and sexism underlying Trump's critique of the first Black woman and person of Asian descent on a major party ticket are part of an aggressive strategy to appeal to white suburban voters." That wasn't so hard, was it. Although calling it "strategy" might be a bit of a reach. It's really Trump's personal misogyny and racism that's behind the attacks on Harris. He says "nobody likes" her and her serving as the first female president would be "an insult to our country." He also refuses to pronounce her name correctly. That's not strategy. That's Trump being a hateful motherfucker. Or if you're a scholar at the Center for American Women and Politics at the Eagleton Institute of Politics and its director of research like Kelly Dittmar, you say it more politely. "It's hard to...

    A new study reveals global efforts to improve air quality have fallen short. Researchers found half of the world’s population is exposed to increasing air pollution, with some areas reaching an amount five times above safety levels. The team, in collaboration with the World Health Organization, notes it is low- and middle-income areas with the highest concentrations. The contributing culprits include the inefficient use of energy by households, industry, the agriculture and transport sectors and coal-fired power plants. Scroll down for video  The study analyzed trends in global air quality between 2010 and 2016, against the efforts made by countries around the world to reduce pollution, including both short and long term policies Professor Shaddick, Chair of Data Science & Statistics at the University of Exeter said: ‘While long-term policies to reduce air pollution have been shown to be effective in many regions, notably in Europe and the United States, there are still regions that have dangerously high levels of air pollution, some as much as five times greater than World Health Organization guidelines, and in some countries air...
