    A teenage TikToker has gone viral after discussing the concept of kinkeeping, which she says is the art of 'women doing everything but going unseen.'  The 19-year-old creator, known as @thought_dumpy, reveals in a post that she learned about the topic in her women and gender studies classes, and it's been on her mind '24/7' as it's the 'root of stress in most women's lives.' To explain the concept, she likens it to a theatre production where all of the actors and actresses are the 'men' who get all of the praise, while the backstage crew or the 'women' are the ones who get no thanks for their hard work behind the scenes.  Addressing the topic further, she continues: 'The women are the people who go unseen during the holidays. There's a lot of cooking and cleaning and planning and organizing but a lot of it goes unnoticed because the whole role of this job is to be invisible and to perform and to perform convenience for everyone... to put on a show.' The TikTok creator known as @thought_dumpy, aged...

    Every Chicago Bulls game at the United Center begins the same way — a raucous cheer as the public address announcer calls “Frommmm Chicago” to welcome second-year point guard Ayo Dosunmu to the court. Dosunmu’s entry into the NBA was more rushed than planned. In his second season, the 22-year-old is helming the Bulls offense yet again with Lonzo Ball injured. But after being thrown into the deep end as a rookie, it’s clear that Dosunmu has developed from a stopgap to a difference maker this season. “He has a huge ceiling ahead of him,” coach Billy Donovan said. “He’s got a huge, huge growth opportunity ahead of him.” Dosunmu spent his summer in the Advocate Center gym, working with his father and the Bulls coaching staff to improve his shooting form. Despite shooting over 50% as a rookie, Dosunmu wanted to speed up his release to be quicker off the dribble and in catch-and-shoot opportunities. The resulting confidence in his shot is only aiding Dosunmu in making decisive plays. “I’m at a point right now this year where even...

    Amazon has come under fire for promoting an ex-prison exec to run its notorious fulfilment center warehouse training - which has faced a slew of misconduct allegations in recent years.  Dayna Howard, a former manager at private prison and detention center firm Corrections Corporation of America, is now in charge of training warehouse workers at Jeff Bezos' company.  Many have pointed out the irony - considering Amazon has previously admitted to forcing its fleet drivers to pee in bottles during their shifts as they allegedly face other poor work conditions.  Dozens of staff members have also come out and described the relentless working practices in fulfilment centers where people have no breaks and are shortchanged on paychecks. Dayna Howard is Amazon's new head of training for warehouse workers.

    Rent prices across the country were up 23 percent in the second quarter of 2022 from the same time period in 2019, as landlords in suburban counties have begun capitalizing on work-from home migrants. The median price for rentals reached $1,314 in the second quarter, according to data released by the US Census Bureau earlier this month. The data suggests suburban landlords are cashing in on the pandemic flight from cities, according to Axios, and that increased demand brought on by new residents is increasing prices for everyone in suburban markets.   The numbers also indicate that landlords are also hiking rents to make up for soaring inflation-driven costs by passing those costs on to renters.  Though the rent spike slowed in the early summer according to a July report in Redfin, prices continued to steadily rise and are not expected to drop even in the midst of the current recession - as the Fed increases interest rates to battle inflation, would-be buyers are pushed into the rental market and increase demand.    The numbers come as the nation continues to settle into new...
    (CNN)As Hawaii voters finish casting their ballots Saturday, the marquee race is the state's Democratic primary for governor.There's a crowded field of Democrats vying to succeed term-limited Democratic Gov. David Ige including Democratic Rep. Kai Kahele, who joined the race after announcing earlier this year he would leave Congress at the end of the term, vacating one of the Aloha State's two congressional seats.Hawaii Lt. Gov. Josh Green and former Hawaii first lady Vicky Cayetano are also competing for the Democratic gubernatorial nod in a state that's been helmed by party leadership for over a decade. In a debate held in July, Green, a former emergency room doctor who served in the Hawaii state House and Senate, called out Kahele for serving one term in Congress and then retiring to return to Hawaii and run for governor, Hawaii News Now reported at the time. Kahele, who was elected in 2020 to replace Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, came under fire earlier this year for his part-time work as a commercial pilot for Hawaiian Airlines, which raised questions of whether he was...

    Vice President Kamala Harris had yet another gaffe during a speech at the White House on Wednesday discussing federal investment in job development Vice President Kamala Harris appeared tongue-tied during a Wednesday speech at the White House as she was discussing federal investments in workforce development. Harris was listing off the Biden administration's efforts to bolster job development and widen access to different career paths when the subject of transportation improvement tripped her up. 'With your help, we are creating good paying jobs in small towns and big cities. Jobs for nurses and doctors, jobs for steel workers, pipe fitters and engineers,' the vice president said. 'Together, we are investing in training programs and apprenticeships that give workers the skills they need to take on the jobs with better wages and better benefits. In particular, workers from underrepresented backgrounds.'  On the issue of bettering transportation access for workers, Harris said: 'Together, we are expanding access to transportation. Seems like maybe it's a small issue, it's a big issue.' 'You need to get to go, and you to be able to...
    VIDEO5:2105:21Return of the reflation trade: Unpacking big gains in travel and leisure stocksETF Edge "Reflation" trades are resurfacing. Travel and leisure stocks have picked up steam this month, with exchange-traded funds such as Invesco's Dynamic Leisure and Entertainment ETF (PEJ), the U.S. Global Jets ETF (JETS) and AdvisorShares' Hotel ETF (BEDZ) all moving sharply higher. The action is as much tied to diversification as it is to soon-to-come warm weather and easing Covid-19 restrictions, ETF Trends CEO Tom Lydon told CNBC's "ETF Edge" this week. "We're seeing rising interest rates and the threat of rising interest rates here in the U.S., but overseas, not all developed countries are suffering from that threat," Lydon said in the Monday interview. "People are diversifying to areas like emerging markets, where it's not only an opportunity to get a better yield and you're also not going to be threatened by central banks necessarily being as hawkish here in the U.S.," he said. Another way to diversify is to invest in inflation hedges such as the AXS Astoria Inflation Sensitive ETF (PPI), Astoria Portfolio Advisors'...
    The California Bay Area has been revealed as the top city in the United States to live in, according to metrics comprised by company review website Glassdoor.  Earlier this month, the site put out their annual 100 Best Places to Work ranking for 2022 and made note of the places where the most well liked businesses were located.  The list was dominated by the Bay Area - which includes multiple cities, such as San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Clara - with 30 companies headquartered on the list in that market.  Boston finished second, with the Los Angeles and New York-New Jersey areas coming in third and fourth.  The rankings are largely based on the millions of Glassdoor reviews submitted between October 2020 and 2021, which highlight flexible work environments, company benefits and other perks.    Nvidia headquarters in Santa Clara, California.

    VIDEO1:4001:40Active management ETFs are the best of both worlds, says JPMorgan's LakeHalftime Report Exchange-traded fund investors are putting money to work amid recent market volatility, ETF Trends' Dave Nadig said. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) has seen four to five times its daily average volumes during the market's wild swings, and some investors are using it to their advantage, the firm's chief investment officer and director of research told CNBC's "ETF Edge" on Wednesday. "Over the last five sessions, we've actually had about [$]13 billion flow into equities," Nadig said. "ETF investors are definitely buying the dip here." U.S. equities, particularly SPY and Invesco's QQQ Trust (QQQ), have captured the bulk of the volume, he added. "We've had a few days of outflows there, but the trend has very much been strongly buying the dip putting money back to work," Nadig said. Actively managed ETFs could offer investors the "best of both worlds" in frothy environments like this, Bryon Lake, global head of ETF solutions at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, said in the same interview. "You get the benefits...
    A 30-year-old dog walker who advocates for the 'anti-work movement' went viral on Wednesday following her disastrous interview with Fox News host Jesse Watters after she called laziness a virtue and said she aspired to move on from dog walking to teaching philosophy.  Doreen Ford, of Boston, who serves as a moderator for the r/Anti-Work subreddit, went on Fox on Tuesday night and fumbled to explain the group's ideology as Watters mocked the movement and it's 1.7 million followers.  'It sounds like maybe people are just being lazy,' Watters said. 'Are you encouraging people to be lazy?'  To which Ford responded: 'I think laziness is a virtue in a society where people constantly want you to be productive 24/7, and it's good to have rest. 'That doesn't mean you should be resting all the time or not putting effort into the things that you care about.'  Doreen Ford, 30, a dog walker from Boston who serves as a moderator for the r/Anti-Work subreddit, went on Fox and fumbled to explain the group's ideology to host Jesse Watters Watters, pictured, called...
    An employee who was among the 900 workers fired via Zoom by the company's heartless CEO but did not see said his work email and instant messaging were cut off within minutes of the cruel cut - and he had to use his personal social media accounts to get details for his ex-colleagues about the mass firing. Better.com CEO Vishal Garg, 39, informed the 900 workers that they were terminated during a three-minute Zoom meeting on December 1. 'This isn't news that you're going to want to hear. If you're on this call, you are part of the unlucky group that is being laid off. Your employment here is terminated effective immediately,' Garg said.  Christian Chapman, a former underwriter at the online mortgage business, said his computer screens went black moments after the Zoom call ended asr he started messaging colleagues in the company's Slack channels. Based in Texas, the father of five told CNN that he also quickly lost access to all of his work-related resources, including to his computer, phone and email.  ¿How do I...
    HEAD inside the International Space Station where astronauts are to work out for at least two hours a day to prevent bone loss and drink their own recycled urine. To get to outer space, astronauts have to have a number of qualifications and physical requirements - but it turns out it doesn't just stop while on earth. 6Astronauts must work out on the ISS to avoid muscle lossCredit: Handout 6They also drink recycled urine on the ISSCredit: Getty According to the NASA website, astronauts have to keep healthy aboard the "station to prevent bone and muscle loss." Astronauts aboard the ISS work out for on average of about two hours a day to mitigate the muscle loss, but the equipment is different aboard the ISS. Although lifting a 200-pound weight is pretty difficult due to gravitational pull, lifting the same amount is much easier. It also proves difficult for astronauts to work out accordingly because of microgravity, meaning special equipment must be made for astronauts to better mitigate their muscle loss. WHAT TO DRINK ON THE ISS? There's only so...
    The ex-husband of missing LA bookkeeper Heidi Planck has claimed her investment firm boss, who is being investigated for fraud, didn't appear 'too concerned' for her after she disappeared and seemed more worried about recovering her work laptop instead. James Wayne told DailyMail.com he believes 'the answer to Heidi's whereabouts lies with her boss, Jason Sugarman, and his company.'   The 39-year-old California mom has not been seen since she left her son's football game with her dog, Seven, in Downey, Los Angeles, on October 17.  The dog was later discovered alone in an apartment building in downtown LA - some 12 miles from her home - but she's still nowhere to be found.   Wayne said he suspects foul play is involved in his ex-wife's disappearance and that her job at an investment firm is somehow connected.  Planck works as a financial controller, overseeing all employees involved in the accounting process at Camden Capital Partners, where Sugarman is a managing partner who is currently under investigation for a $43million fraud scheme.  James Wayne, the ex-husband of Heidi Planck, says he suspect's the missing...
    The business owners whose blood, sweat, and tears—or at least their fancy, high-priced educations, family connections and access to venture capital—built this country, dammit were hellbent and determined to show American workers who was boss. This COVID-19 nonsense was not going to interfere with their profits any longer. It was time to take a stand. So they all had their administrative assistants conference in their favorite state legislators, the same ones who helpfully passed legislation a few years back, keeping pesky unions out of their states. They called in their chits for all those campaign contributions to the governor. They called their Republican House reps and senators. Damn that Fauci, they complained. My business is hurting. No more lockdowns, no more of this “social distancing “crap. This state is going to open for business and I don’t want to hear another word about body counts or stressed hospitals. I need workers and I need them now. I paid for your damn campaigns, so do something! And those state representatives and senators leapt into action. In a matter of a few weeks...

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Earlier this year, an insistent cry arose from business leaders and Republican governors: Cut off a $300-a-week federal supplement for unemployed Americans. Many people, they argued, would then come off the sidelines and take the millions of jobs that employers were desperate to fill. Yet three months after half the states began ending that federal payment, there’s been no significant influx of job seekers. In states that cut off the $300 check, the workforce — the number of people who either have a job or are looking for one — has risen no more than it has in the states that maintained the payment. That federal aid, along with two jobless aid programs that served gig workers and the long-term unemployed, ended nationally Sept. 6. Yet America’s overall workforce actually shrank that month. “Policymakers were pinning too many hopes on ending unemployment insurance as a labor market boost,” said Fiona Greig, managing director of the JPMorgan Chase Institute, who has studied the issue. Labor shortages have persisted longer than many economists expected, deepening a mystery at...

    Daily Caller co-founder and Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that there is a “massive gender divide” in the current workforce on a Wednesday episode of the Daily Caller podcast, “Vince And Jason Save The Nation.” Carlson said that changes in the economy over the last several years have led to men lacking full-time employment while the women kept their jobs and were earning higher sums of money. “I watched as all the jobs went away for a bunch of reasons, but mostly because of trade agreements, and none of the men had full-time employment,” Carlson said. “Most of the women still did, they worked in hospitals and schools. But the traditionally male — and there’s a massive gender divide in work, no one wants to say it, but especially in blue-collar work, there’s a massive divide.” “And where I live, the men all worked in the woods cutting down trees and sending them to pulp mills to make paper. And those jobs disappeared. So what happened was men started to make less than women and women didn’t want to...
    An artist was banned from online marketplace Society6 after a TikToker allegedly identified her as the woman in a racist video suggesting that slaves working in the cotton fields had it easy.  In the video, which was posted by user @art_antonym, a woman is seen picking a clump of cotton from a plant and says: 'I really don't understand what the big deal is. It's not even that hard.'  The clip was sent to Denise Bradley, TikTok user @auntkaren0, who is known for exposing alleged racists in her Racist of the Day videos. Bradley believes she has identified the woman in the cotton-picking video as artist Savanna Gustafson — citing the two moles on the woman's right hand as clues to determining her identity.

                      by Kaylee Greenlee  It’s unclear how many Afghan refugees arrived in the U.S. recently, though they will mostly stay at military bases as they undergo immigration proceedings, a senior Biden administration official said during a press call last week. Around 20,000 Afghan refugees now stay at eight military bases across the continental U.S., Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said on Wednesday. The Biden administration warned nine nonprofit organizations contracted with the State Department that work with refugees to prepare for up to 50,000 Afghans to arrive in the U.S. without visas and in need of resettlement, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday. “After getting tested (for COVID-19) at the airport, American citizens and LPRs (legal permanent residents) can head to their onward destination — home — while others — everyone else heads to those military bases I mentioned before,” the senior official said during a press call on Aug. 24. “There, they receive a full medical screening, and they receive a variety of healthcare services and assistance in applying for things like work authorizations,...
    Around 20,000 Afghan refugees are staying at military bases in the U.S. as officials help them through immigration proceedings, said Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley.  “Each of those arriving families will be connected with one of the refugee resettlement organizations that our government partners with and that do such extraordinary work to help individuals, exactly like this, begin and settle into new lives in America,” a Biden administration senior official said during a background press call. The Biden administration warned nonprofit organizations that help settle refugees to prepare for up to 50,000 arrivals without details about when or where they may go, The Wall Street Journal reported.

    President Biden on Thursday added the federal workforce to a growing number of government and private workplaces that are requiring their employees to get vaccinated, often with frequent COVID-19 testing as an alternative, as infections driven by the highly contagious delta variant soar and immunizations have slowed. Among them: Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough announced Monday he will make COVID-19 vaccines mandatory for all health care personnel who work in Veterans Health Administration facilities, with employees given eight weeks to become fully vaccinated. Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday said all 246,000 state workers as well as health care workers throughout the state will be required next month to show proof they either have been vaccinated or that they have tested negative for COVID-19 at least weekly. The state also requires the unvaccinated to wear masks indoors. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday announced a similar policy for his state’s workers starting in September, and that the shots will be required of state hospital workers with no alternative for COVID-19 testing. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said...
    Woman working on computer in her home office during pandemic quarantine.borchee | E+ | Getty Images The past year has taught companies and employees alike that people in many occupations can work from anywhere. So, does the location where a company decides to set up shop really matter anymore? In a word, yes. And in many ways, it matters more than ever as the economy starts back up, people get back to work, and the nature of the workplace evolves. "It really is creating a lot of opportunities for companies to really look at their portfolio, where they have facilities, and think differently about how to get close to talent, because talent is the driver of what's going on in the economy right now," said Christopher Lloyd, a site selection consultant at McGuireWoods in Richmond, Virginia, and Chairman of the Site Selectors Guild, an industry group. Consultants like Lloyd, as well as company officials and state and local economic development leaders, tell CNBC they are seeing some of their busiest times ever. "We're seeing people, I believe as a result...
    As the coronavirus pandemic ebbs and vaccination rates rise across the U.S., one question is top of mind for employers and employees who have worked remotely for the last 16 months: When — and how — will we ever return to the office?  The approaches companies are taking are all over the map, from a return to full-time office hours to having employees continuing to work remotely in perpetuity. Some corporate leaders are sounding the clarion call for people to come back, arguing that in-person collaboration is essential to organizational culture and even dismissing those who prefer to work remotely as lacking drive or ambition.  JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon is one staunch advocate of bringing employees back, saying that working exclusively from home hamstrings younger workers, who benefit from face-to-face mentorship from more seasoned professionals.  "It accelerated a trend, but it does not work for younger people. It doesn't work for those who want to hustle, it doesn't work in terms of spontaneous idea generation," he said recently at the Wall Street Journal CEO Council.  Some bosses are...
    SAN GABRIEL (KABC) -- Early last year, millions of Americans were forced to start working from home. All these months later, with the pandemic easing, workspaces are reopening. But for many, a remote office will be a part of life for some time to come, if not permanently.Does your home office have to always be where you live? Not necessarily."It's a home office away from home," said Dave Delano of Airstream Los Angeles in San Gabriel in speaking a about a new Airstream model called the Flying Cloud Office.It's a variation of the brand's popular 30-foot travel trailer, dreamed up by the Ohio-based company as the work-from-home trend amped up in 2020."It still has the bed and the sofa and the TV and everything that you would normally see. There's just been a section denoted for the office," added DelanoThe space is tucked away within a rear corner of the iconic-looking silver RV. The office area is small, but efficient, like most other things in a travel trailer. There's a desk surface with plenty of lighting, AC power outlets, and...
    DEAR HARRIETTE: I think a group of boys that I go to school with are stealing from the department store where I work. I think they do it on purpose when I’m working because they don’t think that I will tell anyone. Harriette Cole  I have no solid evidence other than the fact that I’ve seen a few of them wearing things from my store that I don’t remember them buying. They never buy anything when they’re in the store; they just linger. I don’t want to get in trouble because my manager knows that I know them. I’m really good friends with this group, and I do not want any of them going to jail. What do I do? Tattletale DEAR TATTLETALE: Your job is to alert your boss to your concerns. Be direct and say that you have no evidence of their stealing, but you are suspicious. Suggest that security watch them closely. Offer that this makes you very uncomfortable because you know them, but you believe your responsibility is to alert your boss to possible theft. Ask...
    These techies have taken co-working to the next level.  At education company Fiveable, employees have been going into the office for the entirety of the coronavirus pandemic — because their office is also their house.  In a profile for the Guardian, writer Poppy Noor takes readers inside the “medieval-looking stone house” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where five of the tech business’ staffers have been living (rent-free), working, eating, sleeping, partying and hanging out with their two bosses since the start of the COVID-19 crisis. The decision to do so was made by the company’s leaders to simultaneously cut costs and offer workers something unique. After a year of the experiment, participants generally reflected that it was a success, especially during such an isolating disease-filled year — although certain problems became intensely exacerbated by living together. “Any conflict we have usually has to be resolved very quickly. Because we don’t want that to affect what we are doing,” Fiveable’s chief operating officer, Tan Ho, told the publication of co-living arguments.  “Firing anyone sucks,” said co-founder and CEO Amanda DoAmaral, who...

    Dabeiba (Colombia), March 18 (EFE) .- With a shovel, Jaime de Jesús Arango removes more than dirt in the Las Mercedes cemetery. When he picks up small amounts of material, he shakes up one of the darkest chapters of the Colombian armed conflict, while trying to find part of the truth about the “false positives”. His work as a gravedigger in this cemetery in the municipality of Dabeiba, in the department of Antioquia (northwest), varies during the proceedings carried out by the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP), which in December 2019 began several excavations there after receiving statements from members of the Army who acknowledged having participated in these extrajudicial executions and revealed the place of the graves. “It is a different job; here there is no relative and it is not known where the bereaved (deceased) was left,” Arango tells Efe, during the fourth day of exhumations and search for “false positives”, young people, especially from humble areas , taken by the Army under promises of work and executed to be presented as guerrillas to their superiors, and thus...

Biden needs to undo Trump’s most disastrous climate decisions — fast 5 freelance jobs where you can earn $100,000 or more during the pandemic There is a major paradigm shift happening in the U.S. driven by the pandemic: the rise of freelancing and remote work.

Courtesy of Kara and Nate Buchanan Kara and Nate Buchanan bought a converted sprinter van for $40,000 in March to travel across the US during the pandemic. They needed to be able to work from their tiny home on wheels, so they purchased a van with a bed that transforms into a workspace. When renovating the van to suit their needs as bloggers, Kara and Nate added a coffee station and a charging safe for their electronics. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Kara and Nate Buchanan, a couple from Nashville, Tennessee, visited 100 countries before the coronavirus pandemic, documenting their travels on YouTube — but they hadn't seen much of the US.

    Saturday, FNC’s Jeanine Pirro attacked the ruling class’s hypocrisy when it comes to lockdowns and how the rules apply to small business but not corporations. The Fox News host took special exception to those allowed to ignore the rules of the pandemic if their activities fit a social justice narrative. Transcript as follows: PIRRO: They are a shameful lot, a motley crew parading around us our representatives, yet in truth, the epitome of people in it for themselves. I’m not the only one who feels this way. Congress’s approval rating has polled as low as 17 percent this year. I’m surprised it’s even that high. Since this coronavirus hit our shores, we’ve looked to Congress for action. Yet their inaction, their feeble attempt to come out and look like they’re going to help us is as transparent and useless as they are. But this week, topped even Nancy Pelosi’s shameless, I’m rich and you’re not theater, as she posed eating ice cream in front of her $24,000.00 refrigerator freezer claiming that her rows of $13 a pint chocolate ice cream...
    VIDEO1:2801:28'We're the most bullish on the market that we've been in about a year': ShueTrading Nation The stock market's record run this year hasn't discounted one top strategist's bull case for 2021. Meghan Shue, head of investment strategy at Wilmington Trust, told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Friday that her firm is "very constructive" on stocks over a 9-12 month time horizon. "We're the most bullish on the market that we've been in about a year," said Shue, whose firm manages around $124 billion in assets. Having just added to Wilmington Trust's overweight position in equities, Shue sees three main factors driving the market higher in the intermediate term: the Covid-19 vaccines, which she called "a game-changer for a faster return to normal in 2021"; the political landscape as it relates to fiscal stimulus and the potential for a divided government; and monetary policy, "which, in the short term, isn't that much of an additional lift, but the Fed's change in policy to allow inflation to run above their target for a period of time we really see as being...

    A doctor has been suspended after she turned up so drunk for work she had to be treated in her own hospital's A&E department. Dr Sarka Bakalarova, from the Czech Republic, was '10 or 11 times the legal limit' when she arrived for her shift at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust in November 2018, having downed an entire bottle of vodka. A disciplinary tribunal heard that the doctor, working in the UK as a locum Breast Radiologist, was so intoxicated colleagues realised she 'had no idea where she was'. Horrified doctors found her slumped at her desk and then intervened to ensure she did not perform any procedures at the Trust. The tribunal said that Dr Bakalarova's actions had put patients at unwarranted risk of harm, and 'although she states she had not intended to work there was the potential for harm had she been capable of doing so'.

Elaine Thompson/AP The future of work will be "hot offices" where employees reserve a desk, AWS CEO Andy Jassy told CNBC. Jassy, who oversees Amazon's cloud business, said he expects that once offices can safely reopen, people will likely adopt a hybrid model rather than being in an office 100% of the time.  The coronavirus pandemic has affected Amazon's approach to meetings as well as hiring: The company is more open to remote employees now than it was in the past, Jassy said.  Amazon has officially said it won't ask employees to return to work until June 2021. But some employees told Business Insider's Ashley Stewart that the company's remote work plans may be more flexible and longer-term than they've publicly shared.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

    When coronavirus cases began to tick up in the spring, Saludacion “Sally” Solon Fontanilla, a nurse at St. Mary Medical Center in Apple Valley, took some time off. As a diabetic with a history of asthma, she worried she could contract the virus from a patient. But the veteran nurse couldn’t stay away long. Her professional calling was too great, and her patients needed her, so she she returned to work in July. Sally worked the night shift in the telemetry unit, where patients are often in critical condition and need constant monitoring. Her team was the first at St. Mary assigned to care for COVID-19 patients, and Sally piled on layers of personal protective equipment before doling out medication, food and other care to infected patients. But she soon came home from work feeling ill. “It just went down from there,” said Sally’s husband, Ebenezer “Ben” Fontanilla, who also works as a nurse at St. Mary. Tethered to a ventilator for almost two months, the 51-year-old died of COVID-19 on Oct. 5 at the same hospital where...
