CEO Breaks Down How Remote Work Is Going To Change This Decade

CEO Breaks Down How Remote Work Is Going To Change This Decade


It would be an understatement to say that the Covid-19 pandemic changed the job market and how companies operate. The changes were sudden, drastic, and shook the foundations of the traditional way most people looked at work. Suddenly, a large portion of the developed world found themselves working from home, maybe even for the first time in their lives.

It’s exciting. It’s efficient. And it’s here to stay. At least, according to Chris Herd, the founder and CEO of FirstbaseHQ. In a viral Twitter thread, Herd collated what he learned about the future of remote work and working from home from thousands of companies. Have a read through his intriguing posts, so let’s dive head-first into the fascinating topic of how the job industry is being modernized. The future looks bright and far more flexible than anyone dared to dream. Herd’s company FirstbaseHQ helps businesses set up, manage, maintain, and retrieve the physical equipment their remote workers need to do their jobs remotely. So you know for a fact that Herd believes what he’s preaching—he’s even built a business around this idea.

Eddy Ng, the James and Elizabeth Freeman Professor of Management at Bucknell University, went in-depth about remote work in an interview with Bored Panda. According to him, telework is definitely here to stay. However, “not all employees will be working from home permanently.” Read on for his full insights and, if you’re curious to learn more, have a look through his report on telework during the Covid-19 pandemic right over here.

Managers have adapted to the changes since the start of the pandemic

According to Professor Ng, some academics are already talking about a remote work economy. “Some employees will continue to work from home post-pandemic, venturing into the office occasionally, while others will definitely see some form of telework arrangements in their work lives,” he explained to Bored Panda.

The changes were a real challenge for some managers, however, they’re getting better with practice. “Initially, managers encounter challenges with coordinating and supervising employees remotely. However, they are adapting and getting better at managing remotely. Complaints about control and coordination, e.g., employees working on wrong tasks, not completing tasks on time, or not responding are low.”

Professor Ng, from Bucknell University, said that there is a definite blurring of work and home life and activities. This had led to work hours getting extended. “Historically, employees work set hours (e.g., 9 to 5) but they are now engaged with some form of work during their ‘waking hours.’ This can lead to slow burnout and a lack of social support (isolation, mentoring) that normally comes from working in person at the office. Employers and managers will need to set boundaries around remote work, and having employees come into the office 1-2 times a week (post-pandemic) to alleviate some of these concerns.”

Telework doesn’t mean competing against the entire world

Bored Panda was also curious to find out whether remote work means that potential employees would have to compete for job positions against candidates from all over the world. The professor pointed out that pretty much anyone with access to a computer and an internet connection can telework from anywhere in the world. However, not everyone is “eligible or suited” for every position. What’s more, not all remote work can be performed from anywhere in the world.

“Some roles do require specific and tacit knowledge or relationship building. This may be difficult or challenging for someone working in a different time zone, or do not have the ability to meet in person on short notice,” the professor said, adding that trust is hard to establish online. “Nonetheless, telework will be here to stay post-pandemic, and the remote (work) economy will create a global labor market.”

Lots of us already know the benefits of remote work. Among them is protecting our loved ones from the coronavirus by having contact with fewer people every day. What’s more, we’re saving time by not having to commute to the office, so we have more time for rest, leisure activities, and our families. However, remote work isn’t the panacea that many thought it would be. It still has its flaws, especially while companies and managers cling to their old philosophies.

There’s lots of potential for burnout because employees are working harder and longer

Some employees are remarking that they’re working far longer hours when working remotely or that their workloads have increased dramatically.

Others have reported that it’s difficult to separate work from leisure now (which is why it’s important to have a dedicated space at home where you only work so you’re physically leaving it once you clock out). Naturally, we’re seeing lots of cases of burnout. Think about your coworkers and you’ll see what I mean.

For some, remote work is only a temporary pleasure, however. Even though the pandemic is nowhere near controlled yet, spring and summer are approaching and it’s likely that lockdown restrictions will be lifted. A cause for celebration, yes? Not exactly.

This means that some businesses will be rushing to herd their employees back into their cubicles and open offices with their water coolers, beanbags, and foosball tables. Only to send them packing again once autumn comes around again. Others, however, have learned from the past year and will have adapted. For them, the semi-annual mass exodus doesn’t make sense and they’ll want to move to a more permanent system that maximizes flexibility and employee choice.

Flexibility, choice, and finding balance are the name of the game

After all, employees can be very different in how they approach work. Some thrive in the office while others are most efficient at home. Some need to be constantly surrounded by their coworkers while others want to limit their interactions during working hours. Some have large families and work from their kitchens without any privacy while others have dedicated offices at home.

But choosing between the office and home isn’t about making binary choices. They’re a spectrum. And many will opt for balance: mixing work from home with work from the office and getting the best from both worlds. This way, you stay emotionally invested in your colleagues and the company while also being treated like a responsible adult who knows what’s best for them.

That’s why offering employees the choice of how they approach things is best. After all, if we’re completely honest with ourselves, we know where and under what conditions we work best. And if your work results corroborate your view of your performance, well, more power to you.

Remote work—a question of trust?

There are, however, practical limitations to remote work. You can’t suddenly jet off to Barcelona and work from a beachside cafe while taking in the waves and the stunning architecture. There are lots of complicated tax reasons for this, as well as some managers’ suspicions that you might be relaxing during work hours.

In other words, it’s all a question of trust. It means having a record of getting the job done under any circumstances. If you’re trusted, you then get rewarded with flexibility and being able to live a high-quality life while also raking in the dough and climbing up the career ladder like Winnie the Pooh going after a beehive.

Here’s what people are saying after reading through Herd’s tweets

So, dear Pandas, what do you think of remote work? Is it here to stay? Is it going away (temporarily) the moment the weather warms up and the lockdown restrictions ease up? Is Herd looking at this too optimistically? What have your own experiences with remote work been like? Are you working more? How do you deal with burnout?

Biden Declares End to Trump-Style ‘America First’ Diplomacy

Biden Declares End to Trump-Style ‘America First’ Diplomacy


For anyone looking for evidence that boasts about “America First” — and the need for America to go-it-alone — are over, President Biden’s speech to the Munich Security Conference was meant as an opening argument.

“America is back, the trans-Atlantic alliance is back,” Mr. Biden declared. Trying to expunge the last four years without ever once naming his predecessor, Donald J. Trump, Mr. Biden said “we are not looking backward.”

And then he went on to offer a 15-minute ode to the power of alliances.

He talked about an America that was itself overcoming challenges to the democratic experiment.

“We have to prove that our model isn’t a relic of history,” he said, a clear reference to the critique that China and Russia have been helping to push. “We must demonstrate that democracies can still deliver for our people in this changed world. That is our galvanizing mission. Democracy doesn’t happen by accident. We have to defend it. Strengthen it. Renew it.”

In sharp contrast to Mr. Trump, who declined on several occasions to acknowledge the United States’ responsibilities under Article V of NATO to come to the aid of allies, he said “We will keep the faith” with the obligation. “An attack on one is an attack on all.”

But he also pressed Europe to think about challenges in a new way — one that differs from the Cold War, even if the two biggest adversaries were familiar from that period.

“We must prepare together for long-term strategic competition with China,” he said, naming “Cyberspace, artificial intelligence and biotechnology” as the new subjects of competition, which he said he welcomed. The West must again be setting the rules of how these technologies are used, he argued, rather than ceding those forums to Beijing.

And he argued for pushing back against Russia — he called Vladimir V. Putin only by his last name, with no title attached — mentioning in particular the need to respond to the SolarWinds attack that was aimed at federal and corporate computer networks. “Addressing Russian recklessness and hacking into computer networks in the United States and across Europe and the world has become critical to protect collective security.”

Scrapped Plans for London Concert Hall Sour Mood for U.K. Musicians

Scrapped Plans for London Concert Hall Sour Mood for U.K. Musicians


Deborah Annetts, the chief executive of the Incorporated Society of Musicians, said on Tuesday during a parliamentary inquiry into the new rules that she had been “inundated with personal testimony from musicians as to the work that they have lost, or are going to lose, in Europe as a result of the new visa and work permit arrangements.”

A British musician who wanted to play a concert in Spain would have to pay 600 pounds, or about $840, for a work permit, she said, adding that this would make such a trip unviable for many. She called upon the government to negotiate deals with European countries so cultural workers could move around more easily.

Parrott said he expected many British classical musicians would retrain for other careers, or move outside Britain for work, if the rules were not changed.

High profile departures like Rattle’s have only contributed to the impression of a sector in decline. On Jan. 22, Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla, a young Lithuanian conductor seen as a rising star, announced she would leave her post as music director of the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra at the end of the 2021-22 season. “This is a deeply personal decision, reflecting my desire to step away from the organizational and administrative responsibilities of being a music director,” she said in a statement at the time.

Manuel Brug, a music critic for Die Welt, the German newspaper, said in a telephone interview that, viewed from the continent, classical music in Britain seemed in a bad way, “with all this horrible news.”

The new London concert hall “was always a dream, but at least it was a dream,” he said.

Given recent developments, many British musicians and singers may have to consider moving to Europe if they wanted to succeed, he said.

Don Letts, Mad Professor Team With Times on Carnival Story

Don Letts, Mad Professor Team With Times on Carnival Story


He also has been a regular at the Notting Hill Carnival for over 40 years. In 2009, he directed a documentary, “Carnival!,” on the history and politics of the festival.

Asked to name a “typical” Carnival anthem, Mr. Letts at first dismissed the task as impossible. Upon reflection, though, he directed us toward an old friend, the producer Mad Professor, and his 2005 track “Elaine the Osaka Dancer” — “A strange title, I know,” said Mr. Letts — which was written for a performer, Panafricanist, on the Mad Professor’s label. Mad Professor, whose name is Neil Fraser, is himself a well-known name in British music history. He pioneered the emergence of the British dub sound and collaborated with performers like Sade and Massive Attack.

Mr. Letts chose “Elaine” because, as he put it: “At Carnival you can stand on a street corner and hear a float going past with steel pans, along with the sound of a Jamaican sound system right around the corner. This song perfectly captures that sound: the collision of calypso and soca with the bass-heavy rhythms of reggae.”

Mad Professor agreed to license the song, so we asked him to break it down into individual instrumental tracks or “stems,” each of which would then be manipulated by the user of the Instagram effect.

This process proved to be slightly more analog — and painstaking — than anticipated. At one point, when asked for a progress report, Mad Professor relayed that he was “baking the tapes” — which might sound (or did to me, anyway) like a bit of music producer slang. In fact, it’s a literal description of the process in which analog master tapes are restored by exposing them to a high temperature for hours, reducing humidity that can affect the quality of the tapes.

Once the tapes were baked and the stems were procured, our graphics and R. & D. team built the Instagram effect. With the effect, the user can play with the drums, bass, horns and steel pan tracks while seeing commentary from Letts on why each element is crucial to a Carnival song.

It’s not the same thing as dancing to steel pans on a simmering street in London’s Notting Hill in the heat of summer. But in a year when Carnival has been canceled nearly everywhere, we hope it gets you as close to that feeling as possible.

Airlines Still Don’t Know When Passengers Will Return

Airlines Still Don’t Know When Passengers Will Return


It was “a year of going through hell” for United Airlines. Delta Air Lines had “the toughest year” in its history. And for American Airlines it was “the most challenging year.” That’s how the executives who run those companies described 2020 in recent weeks.

The airline industry is eager to move on, but it hasn’t figured out how.

Air travel has recovered somewhat in recent months, but it remains deeply depressed compared with 2019, and no one knows when business will return to more normal levels. Two essential moneymakers for airlines — corporate and international travel — are likely to stay sidelined for another year and possibly much longer.

Now and for the next several months at least, airlines are flying whoever they can wherever they can. That often means catering to a small group of hardy leisure travelers who are undeterred by the pandemic to travel to ski slopes or beaches.

“As a quick strategy, fly where people are,” said Ben Baldanza, a former chief executive of Spirit Airlines, the low-cost carrier. “That’s been a real smart strategy, but that’s not a long-term way for those airlines to make money.”

But leisure travel offers limited comfort to an industry so thoroughly clobbered. Tourists and people visiting family and friends typically take up most of the seats on planes, but airlines rely disproportionately on revenue from corporate travelers in the front of the cabin. Before the pandemic, business travel accounted for about 30 percent of trips but 40 to 50 percent of passenger revenue, according to Airlines for America, an industry association. And those customers aren’t expected to return in great numbers any time soon.

The four largest U.S. airlines — American, Delta, United and Southwest Airlines — lost more than $31 billion last year, and the industry over all is still shedding more than $150 million each day, according to an estimate from Airlines for America.

The losses are even more stark when you consider that airlines have received $40 billion in federal grants to help pay employees and tens of billions more in low-cost government loans. The problem is airlines these days can’t fly planes with enough people at high enough fares to break even.

The industry spent much of the past year scrimping and saving, trimming older, less efficient planes from their fleets; renegotiating contracts; and encouraging tens of thousands of workers to take buyouts or early retirement packages.

But it hasn’t been enough to offset a drop of nearly two-thirds in air travel as public health experts and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continue to discourage travel. Airlines for America does not expect passenger numbers to recover to 2019 levels until at least 2023. And airlines might have to wait even longer if the economic recovery falters because of the spread of coronavirus variants or a delay in vaccinations.

Still, airlines say they are hopeful for the year ahead.

Southwest said sales this month were better than expected. Alaska Airlines said it hoped to operate about 80 percent as many flights this summer as it did in 2019, while Hawaiian Airlines offered a similarly upbeat forecast. Delta’s chief executive, Ed Bastian, said in a message to customers last week that he expected to see an “inflection point in the spring” as consumer confidence grew, travel restrictions eased and vaccine distribution expanded. Last week, JetBlue started daily flights from New York, Boston and Los Angeles to Miami and added seasonal flights to Key West, its first time serving either city.

“The discussion is shifting from who’s a survivor to who takes more share in the recovery,” said Sheila Kahyaoglu, an aerospace and defense analyst with Jefferies, an investment bank. “It’ll be about who can best access certain markets.”

The airlines have some things going for them. Lawmakers in Washington seem willing to provide the industry with a third large aid package since the pandemic took hold last spring. A House committee last week backed $14 billion in grants that airlines could use to pay workers through September, adding it to the coronavirus relief package under consideration in Congress.

Airlines are also doing what they can to stoke demand.

Delta recently extended its ban on booking passengers in middle seats through April and hired a chief health officer. The moves are part of Delta’s effort to brand itself as a premium, health-conscious carrier. Southwest is offering deals, including a sale promising one-way fares as low as $50 in celebration of its 50th anniversary. The airline typically has big sales in the fall and sometimes has them in the summer.

“I don’t think any of us could recall doing a wild sale in January, but that’s where we are,” Southwest’s chief executive, Gary Kelly, told investors and reporters last month. “The goal is simple: We need to stimulate travel. We need to get more bookings in place.”

Most industry experts say they expect travelers to return in greater numbers this spring or summer, as the weather improves and more people are vaccinated.

But planning for that isn’t easy. Passengers used to book flights months in advance, but now plans are often confirmed just weeks out. And trends in bookings have often been fleeting.

“Every time demand has shown signs of life, it’s taken another step backward,” said Hunter Keay, senior airline analyst at Wolfe Research. “So it’s very hard for airlines to go out there and put aircraft in markets, because if you get that wrong you just exacerbate the problem of cash burn.”

Perhaps the most difficult question for airlines and other travel businesses is when executives, middle managers and other business travelers will feel comfortable flying. In the final three months of 2020, corporate travel was down 85 percent or more at American, Delta and Southwest, according to the airlines.

The American Hotel and Lodging Association, a trade group, has said it does not expect business travel to fully recover until 2024. Other groups think it could take longer. By comparison, international business trips declined just 13 percent during the financial crisis a decade ago, but took five years to return to their previous high point, according to McKinsey.

Some experts argue that corporate travel may never fully recover, with many in-person meetings permanently replaced by video conferences and phone calls. Travel for sales meetings, conventions and trade shows is least likely to be permanently affected, IdeaWorks, an industry consulting firm, said in a December report. But shorter trips to meet with co-workers for a few hours — from New York to Washington, say — could be hit harder, it concluded.

Airlines are more hopeful, perhaps because they rely heavily on corporate travel.

About 40 percent of Delta’s big corporate customers expect their own business travel to be fully recovered by 2022, and an additional 11 percent by 2023, Mr. Bastian said on a conference call in January, citing the airline’s internal research. Only 7 percent said business travel might never be fully restored, while the rest said they were unsure when things would return to normal.

American is “very optimistic” that corporate travel will return as vaccines are distributed, Vasu Raja, the airline’s chief revenue officer, told investors and reporters last month. But, he added, “the rate of that is unclear at best.”

Woman Shares How She Tests Out Her Dates For Red Flags Before Going Out With Them, Starts A Heated Discussion

Woman Shares How She Tests Out Her Dates For Red Flags Before Going Out With Them, Starts A Heated Discussion


Blind dates are risky. You might end up getting ghosted. Or you might not like the person when they show. Plus, there is also a small possibility you might run into someone toxic who is not worth a minute of your time.

But taking chances is necessary if you want to find a meaningful relationship. So it’s all just risk management.

Yes, first dates may be awkward but they are also the perfect opportunity to work out if someone is really right for you. One tumblr user suggests you can start figuring out the person even before you meet them.

The Rain Monster shared an idea for what they think is a harmless little test everyone can do in order to see if the person you’re about to go out with raises any red flags.

Image credits: Praveen Gupta (not the actual photo)

However, if you like texting with someone and agree to go out with them, it becomes a little easier to spot potential red flags. Suzanne Degges-White, Ph.D., a licensed counselor, and professor at Northern Illinois University, says that love may be blind, but be sure to trust your gut on first dates. However, Degges-White thinks that some situations may in fact warn us about future relationship problems.

Warning Sign 1. Imagine he takes you to his favorite sports bar, then spends more time with his eyes on the game on the screen than on you. “If you don’t warrant his full attention on the first date, chances are that he’s made his priorities clear,” Degges-White writes. “If you are as engrossed in the game as he is, this might be a good thing. If he leaves you feeling like you’re already on the losing team, you might need to decide if you want to go into overtime or just admit defeat and cut your losses.”

Image credits: the-rain-monster

Warning Sign 2. Say you meet for a cup of coffee as a ‘pre-first date’ meet-up, and instead of inviting you to talk about yourself, she spends the next hour telling you all about herself. “Unless you were feeding her the questions and she was giving you the answers, it’s likely that her interest in herself will always outweigh her interest in a boyfriend’s life,” Degges-White says. “Poor social skills can be corrected, but overt narcissism is almost impossible to cure.”

Warning Sign 3. You agree to go to a great restaurant. It is known for its awesome sushi or burgers or falafel and he orders a meal about as far off from the specialty as it could be—and then complains throughout the meal that the chef doesn’t have a clue what they’re doing. “It can be a lot of fun to hang out with someone who likes to take the proverbial ‘path less traveled,’ but when they don’t like where it leads them and they look for someone else to blame for their decision, it may indicate that when things go wrong, you might end up the scapegoat more often than you’d like.”

As the post went viral, it started a heated discussion on the ethics of dating

Image credits: the-real-seebs

Warning Sign 4. You go to a cool new coffee bar but the list of demands she places on the barista when she orders seems to go on and on. Then when all of her demands are seemingly met, she complains that the foam isn’t thick enough. “When someone reels off a long list of demands to her server, she may also be the kind of person who makes unspoken demands on a partner,” Degges-White points out. “Someone who expects her steak done to exactly 143 degrees is likely to expect the same kind of willingness to please from a boyfriend or partner in her life.”

Image credits: teratomarty

Warning Sign 5. He makes great eye contact, he’s also warm and compassionate, laughs at your jokes, and makes you feel like he is definitely ‘second date material.’ But all of a sudden he explains that he’s still getting over a breakup. He admits to being a ‘sensitive guy,’ but he then casually mentions that the breakup happened 11 months ago, adding that your smile or your hair reminds him a little of the ex. “This guy’s probably nowhere near ready to let go of the past and move on into the future,” Degges-White explains. “His appeal may actually be his downfall if he’s bringing out your ‘caretaker’ side. Trying to win your heart by being interested and caring is one thing, but trying to win your sympathy as he talks about his ex is something else entirely.”

Image credits: w0manifest

Warning Sign 6. She spends the first date elaborating on how much she hates her mother or her family or her job or how she’s been wronged by boyfriends or other friends in the past. “People tell you what they want you to know about them. If she’s already sharing how poorly she’s managed other relationships in her life, run now before you end up the next person on her list of ‘failed relationships.’”

Warning Sign 7. He comes to pick you up and your dog starts barking at the sound of the doorbell. You quiet the pup as you open the door and your date complains, saying you need to get a muzzle for that animal. Or your cat hisses as soon as it sees him on the doorstep and he immediately states that he hates cats. “Converting non-animal lovers can be difficult and when he’s already dissing the pet before a formal introduction, chances are that he’s not going to appreciate the companionship of your faithful pup or kitten.”

Image credits: lierdumoa

Warning Sign 8. He just can’t stay focused on you and the conversation or the meal or the film or the music longer than a couple of minutes before checking his phone—and you don’t know if he’s checking a game score, the exchange rate, or firming up plans for his second ‘first date’ of the evening. “His ability to focus on the potential relationship that the two of you are trying to establish on the first date can be a good indication of his willingness to be emotionally present in the future,” Degges-White, says.

Image credits: cumbler-tumbler

Warning Sign 9. Your new date spends too much time asking if you’re having fun, if you’re too cold, if the restaurant is OK, if your drink is just right… He’s so solicitous of your feelings that you are becoming oddly uncomfortable. “Everyone wants to be ‘liked,’ but when someone is a little overzealous in their efforts to please someone else, it may be due to low self-esteem. If you don’t want to spend a lifetime trying to assure him that he’s great, the relationship is fine, and yes, you adore him, you may want to reconsider agreeing to a second date.”

Warning Sign 10. She shares her views on politics, religion, human nature, diversity, money, etc. and you get the feeling that there are some basic fundamental differences in your belief systems.

“Not every difference of opinion is or should be a deal-breaker,” Degges-White says. “But when the differences bring up warning signs in your own mind, heed them. Remember that wanting to change someone is a lot different than being with someone who wants to change.”
None of these points are clear-cut rules, but they might help you to get to know your date.

‘I Was Invisible’: The Maid-Turned-Star Who’s Taking On Racism in Brazil

‘I Was Invisible’: The Maid-Turned-Star Who’s Taking On Racism in Brazil


SÃO PAULO, Brazil — It was a cherished ritual that Joyce Fernandes saved for the end of the shift of a job she despised.

After finishing tidying up every other room in one of the São Paulo apartments she cleaned, Ms. Fernandes took her sweet time dusting a bookshelf in the living room, where she inevitably got lost in a book.

She feared she would get a stern talking to when the apartment’s owner walked in one day in 2008 as she was devouring “Olga: Revolutionary and Martyr,” a biography of a German communist militant who spent years in Brazil before being executed by Nazi Germany.

Instead of a reprimand, the moment spurred a remarkable career transition for Ms. Fernandes, who is now among the highest-profile Black Brazilians, driving candid conversations about racism and inequality.

The employer, after hearing Ms. Fernandes talk about her passion for history, encouraged her to enroll in college. She did. She earned a degree in history in 2012, and has since developed a large following as an Instagram personality and a rapper, written a book about the lives of Brazilian maids and become a television host.

Her multifaceted career and rising profile sometimes feel like a mirage, she says, when she recalls how most of her early employers dismissed her aspirations.

“They always said there was no point in getting an education,” said Ms. Fernandes, whose stage name is Preta Rara, which means unique Black woman. “They said I was predestined to serve, just like my mother and my grandmother, and that I should be happy with what was already predestined.”

Preordained her future was not.

Ms. Fernandes, 35, remembers a cloistered childhood in Santos, a coastal city in the state of São Paulo. Her mother, also a maid, and her father, a mailman, mostly kept their four children inside, fearing they could get drawn into the criminal activity that was pervasive in their neighborhood.

“I tend to say that I was raised by Brazilian television,” Ms. Fernandes said. “It was the only form of entertainment we had living in a marginalized area.”

Spending countless hours watching soap operas and variety shows gave Ms. Fernandes her first window into Brazil’s rampant racism, which became the dominant theme of her work as an author and an artist.

“You didn’t see Black people being well represented,” she said. “I would only see people like me in the role of slaves or maids — people in the margins.”

After graduating from high school, Ms. Fernandes saw racism through a different lens when she set out to find work in sales or as a receptionist. She started receiving calls for interviews only when she reluctantly followed a piece of advice offered by a Black career coach: Never send out résumés with a photo.

“I sent out my résumé without a photo, and the next week I was flooded with calls to come in for interviews,” she said. “That’s when I realized just how cruel Brazil can be for Black people.”

None of the interviews led to offers. After a few months, feeling dejected, Ms. Fernandes followed in the footsteps of her grandmother and mother and began picking up shifts cleaning homes.

“When I got home and told my mother that I had found work cleaning for a family, she was very sad,” Ms. Fernandes said. “She knew I would soon experience the things she went through.”

At several of the homes where she worked, Ms. Fernandes said, she was not allowed to eat the food she prepared, entitled only to leftovers. She was barred from using certain bathrooms and had to use the elevator marked for “service” and steer clear of the one for “social” visits. She was given stained and tattered clothes as hand-me-downs.

“Employers think of you as their private property, like you’re an object that belongs to them,” she said.

The indignities of those years haunted Ms. Fernandes long after she stopped cleaning houses and found work as a high school history teacher. The memories were weighing on her one day in June 2016 when she posted a couple of anecdotes on Facebook. The post was meant to share a few painful memories with friends, but it soon prompted a cascade of responses.

Thousands of former and current maids created posts of their own using the hashtag #I’mAMaid. Several disclosed being sexually harassed on the job. The volume and rawness of the responses compelled Ms. Fernandes to record first-person accounts in a book published in 2019.

It begins with the story of her grandmother, Noêmia Caetano Fernandes, who began working as a maid at 14 and remembered being fed only after everyone in the family had finished eating.

The second account, by Ms. Fernandes’s mother, Maria Helena da Silva Fernandes, is among the most harrowing in the book. The elder Ms. Fernandes was effectively abducted as a child by a family that promised to pay for her education and meals but instead forced her into servitude.

“I was forced to sleep in a little wooden box next to the dog kennel,” the mother says in the book. She was rescued the day she menstruated for the first time. She was home alone and screamed at the sight of blood, which prompted neighbors to call the authorities.

Ms. Fernandes, the mother, began working as a maid at 17. She remembers one boss who treated her warmly, becoming a motherly figure, and others who humiliated her. “The only trauma that remains is not having learned how to read and write,” she told her daughter.

The book generated plenty of news media coverage and invitations to appear on television shows and podcasts. Ms. Fernandes’s goal was to remind Brazilians of power structures that many choose not to reflect on but are intimately familiar with.

She said she intended the book to be a difficult read.

“I believe that by making people feel uncomfortable is the only way things change,” she said.

According to a 2019 government report, the overwhelming majority of Brazil’s estimated six million domestic workers are Black women with few years of formal education. Maids work 50 hours per week on average, and their median salary was 92 percent below the minimum wage.

Benedita da Silva, one of Brazil’s few Black female lawmakers, also worked as a maid early in her career. She credited Ms. Fernandes with blending art and activism brilliantly to raise awareness about labor abuses and racism.

“As an artist she reaches a slice of the population, the middle class, where public opinion is shaped,” Ms. da Silva said in an interview. The book, Ms. da Silva said, struck a raw chord. “Often, only after people read the book do they realize they are perpetuating these situations.”

After the book was published, Ms. Fernandes’s following on Instagram, her preferred social media platform, exploded. To her more than 166,000 followers, she comes across as raw and unscripted in videos and posts that she devotes hours to curating.

She talks about serious issues like police brutality and sexual abuse. She speaks with pride about coming to love and celebrate her body, which doesn’t fit the Brazilian bombshell stereotype.

The traction she gets on social media helped Ms. Fernandes land a television gig last year hosting a talk show on Globo, the country’s largest cable network. Yet that mainstream platform hasn’t led her to change her style or modulate her message.

“I was invisible in this society for too long,” Ms. Fernandes said, before flashing a smile. “So now everybody has to soak up my delightful figure wherever I happen to be.”

People Are Explaining That What Happened To Texans Is Due To The Rich Being Greedy In 30 Posts

People Are Explaining That What Happened To Texans Is Due To The Rich Being Greedy In 30 Posts


The argument, as some experts put it, is simple: even though winter snaps like this one are rare, the power infrastructure in Texas needs to be overhauled, improved, and upgraded to ensure that it functions in times of crisis. What’s more, there are calls for more regulation of the electricity market so that the infrastructure is properly maintained.

As Rebecca Goetz, an associate professor of history at NYU puts it, deregulation might lead to lower prices for the consumers (i.e. us because we’re choosing the suppliers ourselves, thus making everyone compete for our attention by lowering their prices), but it also leads to confusion. Your electricity supplier might not be the company that fixes your grid when something happens to it. Furthermore, maintenance fees aren’t enough to maintain the infrastructure. Or, in other words, you get what you pay for.

Vaccine Alarmism – The New York Times

Vaccine Alarmism – The New York Times


Want to get The Morning by email? Here’s the sign-up.

If you’re a regular reader of this newsletter, you’re probably familiar with the idea of vaccine alarmism. It goes something like this:

The coronavirus vaccines aren’t 100 percent effective. Vaccinated people may still be contagious. And the virus variants may make everything worse. So don’t change your behavior even if you get a shot.

Much of this message has some basis in truth, but it is fundamentally misleading. The evidence so far suggests that a full dose of the vaccine — with the appropriate waiting period after the second shot — effectively eliminates the risk of Covid-19 death, nearly eliminates the risk of hospitalization and drastically reduces a person’s ability to infect somebody else. All of that is also true about the virus’s new variants.

Yet the alarmism continues. And now we are seeing its real-world costs: Many people don’t want to get the vaccine partly because it sounds so ineffectual.

About one-third of members of the U.S. military have declined vaccine shots. When shots first became available to Ohio nursing-home workers, about 60 percent said no. Some N.B.A. stars are wary of appearing in public-services ads encouraging vaccination.

Nationwide, nearly half of Americans would refuse a shot if offered one immediately, polls suggest. Vaccination skepticism is even higher among Black and Hispanic people, white people without a college degree, registered Republicans and lower-income households.

Kate Grabowski, an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins, told me that she has heard from relatives about their friends and co-workers choosing not to get a shot because they keep hearing they can still get Covid and pass it on to others — and will still need to wear masks and social distance. “What’s the point?” she said, describing their attitude.

The message from experts, Grabowski said, is “being misinterpreted. That’s on us. We’re clearly doing something wrong.”

“Our discussion about vaccines has been poor, really poor,” Dr. Muge Cevik, a virologist, told me. “As scientists we need to be more careful what we say and how that could be understood by the public.”

Many academic experts — and, yes, journalists too — are instinctively skeptical and cautious. This instinct has caused the public messaging about vaccines to emphasize uncertainty and potential future bad news.

To take one example: The initial research trials of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines did not study whether a vaccinated person could get infected and infect another person. But the accumulated scientific evidence suggests the chances are very small that a vaccinated person could infect someone else with a severe case of Covid. (A mild case is effectively the common cold.) You wouldn’t know that from much of the public discussion.

“Over and over again, I see statements that in theory one could be infected and spread the virus even after being fully vaccinated,” Dr. Rebecca Wurtz of the University of Minnesota told me. “Is the ambiguous messaging contributing to ambivalent feelings about vaccination? Yes, no question.”

The messaging, as Dr. Abraar Karan of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston said, has a “somewhat paternalistic” quality. It’s as if many experts do not trust people to understand both that the vaccines make an enormous difference and that there are unanswered questions.

As a result, the public messages err on the side of alarmism: The vaccine is not a get-out-of-Covid-free card!

In their own lives, medical experts — and, again, journalists — tend to be cleareyed about the vaccines. Many are getting shots as soon as they’re offered one. They are urging their family and friends to do the same. But when they speak to a national audience, they deliver a message that comes off very differently. It is dominated by talk of risks, uncertainties, caveats and possible problems. It feeds pre-existing anti-vaccine misinformation and anxiety.

No wonder that the experts’ own communities (which are disproportionately white, upper-income and liberal) are less skeptical of the vaccines than Black, Latino, working class and conservative communities.

Over the next several weeks, the supply of available vaccines will surge. If large numbers of Americans say no to a shot, however, many will suffer needlessly. “It makes me sad,” Grabowski told me. “We’ve created this amazing technology, and we can save so many lives.”

What should the public messaging about the vaccines be? “They’re safe. They’re highly effective against serious disease. And the emerging evidence about infectiousness looks really good,” Grabowski said. “If you have access to a vaccine and you’re eligible, you should get it.”

Virus developments:

  • The number of confirmed Covid deaths in the U.S. is on pace to exceed 500,000 in the next few days.

  • Officials in some states have expanded the supply of available vaccine doses by redistributing unused shots from nursing homes and hospitals.

  • The U.S. will help finance a global push to distribute vaccines to low- and middle-income countries.

A Morning Read: With their daughters off to college, an Iranian-American couple decided to return to the homeland they had left as children. The decision upended their lives.

Modern Love: For this man, a thin line between enabling and love.

From Opinion: What’s the cost of racism, for everyone?

Lives Lived: Prince Markie Dee, who as a member of the trio Fat Boys released some of hip-hop’s most commercially successful albums of the 1980s and helped speed the genre’s absorption into pop culture, died at 52.

Nicknamed the “Master Caster,” Lynn Stalmaster was an Oscar-winning casting director who helped make the careers of many famous actors. He died at 93.

Booming music, glittering costumes, a feeling of freedom: From Brooklyn to London and other places, Carnival has become a full-tilt joyfest of renewal, resistance and remembering for Caribbean immigrants.

As the singer Justine Skye, who usually participates in the West Indian American Day Parade in Brooklyn, put it: “Honestly, that’s the one time of the year I feel like anybody, doesn’t matter what shape, size, color you are, you just come together and you just let it all loose, and you just feel so confident within yourself.”

Because the festivities are canceled this year, The Times put together a project commemorating the event and detailing its history. We recommend going through these dazzling photos of the blinged-out swimsuits and colorful plumage from Caribbean Carnivals around the world.

I Created A Photo Project Called “Farmily” Where I Capture Families And All Their Animals (30 Pics)


You always see family portraits on the walls of people’s homes, but for me, the family doesn’t stop with the people. What about all of our furred and feathered “Farmily” members? They are just as much a part of the family as any human component… so, I decided to change the way people look at family portraits! I travel the country photographing full “Farmily” portraits. We include everybody from the largest horse, to the smallest guinea pig, mouse, or snake.

In November of 2019, our beautiful little puppy joined the family. We named her Pixel. She is a black and white Australian shepherd. We spend a lot of our summers doing “Farmily” photo tours, where we go across the country photographing farms and pets along the way. Of course, little Pixel came with us on all of our 2020 tours. You can find her in some of the photos down below!

Hong Kong’s Move to Overhaul RTHK Fans Fears of Media Crackdown

Hong Kong’s Move to Overhaul RTHK Fans Fears of Media Crackdown


HONG KONG — The Hong Kong government on Friday called for the city’s public broadcaster to be more tightly supervised by government-appointed advisers, in what pro-democracy activists say is the authorities’ latest move to limit freedom of the press.

The government issued a 157-page report accusing Radio Television Hong Kong, an outlet that has often reported critically on officials, of lacking transparency and objectivity.

The report came hours after the government announced that the head of the public broadcaster would leave his post six months early. His replacement is a civil servant from outside the broadcasting service with no journalism experience.

For supporters of Hong Kong’s beleaguered pro-democracy movement, RTHK’s troubles signaled the fate of independent journalism under an intensifying crackdown on dissent. Often compared to the BBC, the broadcaster is government-funded but is promised editorial independence in its charter.

Hong Kong’s communications authority last year ordered the broadcaster to discipline employees on a political satire program after ruling that a skit had insulted the police force. (The program itself was later suspended.) In August, RTHK removed a podcast that featured an interview with a well-known activist after the authorities warned that it could violate the security law.

Three months later, the police arrested Choy Yuk-ling, an award-winning RTHK producer who had made the documentary about the mob attack.

One prominent establishment lawmaker has suggested that RTHK be folded into the government’s public relations department. Pro-Beijing figures have filed thousands of complaints against the station and staged protests outside its offices.

Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s chief executive, said this month that the number of substantiated complaints against RTHK in recent years was “unacceptable.”

“My position is that RTHK greatly needs to be improved,” she said. “There are many things in Hong Kong that need to be set right.”

The government’s report was the product of a seven-month review, which officials announced last spring in response to “wide public concern” about the broadcaster’s performance. The review was led by a senior civil servant, Jessie Ting Yip Yin-mei, whom Mrs. Lam said was known as her “favorite.”

The report called RTHK’s editorial processes “seriously inadequate” and said that there was no clear mechanism to ensure “proper handling of sensitive/controversial issues.” It also accused RTHK of offering “no assurance” that public complaints were investigated impartially.

It criticized the broadcaster for not actively seeking advice from its government-appointed Board of Advisers. The board is led by figures with close ties to Beijing.

The report said that RTHK should keep written records of how coverage decisions are made, cultivate a stronger relationship with the advisory board and ensure that the editor in chief plays a more active role in shaping coverage.

Some wonder how that more active role will play out under the newly announced head, Patrick Li. While the departing editor in chief, Leung Ka-wing, had worked as a reporter and editor at multiple news organizations, Mr. Li, currently the deputy secretary for home affairs, does not have a journalistic background.

The government did not explain Mr. Leung’s early departure but said that his contract had been “resolved early by mutual consent.”

In a brief note to employees, Mr. Leung wrote that he was grateful for five and a half years leading the station and was at peace despite some turbulent times, according to a Facebook post by RTHK.

Edward Yau, the Secretary of the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau, said at a news conference on Friday that RTHK had been led by non-journalists before. He said the department, which oversees the broadcaster, had sought an internal successor but did not find a suitable candidate.

Mr. Yau added that the editor in chief would not be solely responsible for steering programming, though he criticized the existing leadership for adopting a “more passive role.”

The report’s findings were framed as recommendations rather than orders, and officials said there was no set timeline for enacting them. RTHK said in a statement that it would “carefully study and follow up” on the report.

Mr. Yau emphasized that RTHK would maintain editorial independence. But, he added, “there will never be editorial autonomy without responsibility, freedom without restraint.”

30 Funny Animal Comics That Show What Is Really Happening Out In The Wild By ‘False Knees’


It’s easy to look at cute animals and think they’re just as pure and lovely on the inside as well. But are they really? For all that we know, they might have the same pessimistic thoughts as us. What if all those fascinating noises they make aren’t so poetic and translate into nothing more than the same mundane conversations we have? We may never know for sure, but thanks to Joshua Barkman and his webcomic False Knees, we can at least imagine the answers.

The series takes a wild turn from conventional online animal stories, depicting woodland creatures caught up in various existential crises. Barkman found his angle and has the skills to work it, and his Instagram follower count is now creeping above 590,000. A resident of Kitchener, Ontario, he often draws animals native to the area in his frames, including the Canada goose and the red-breasted nuthatch.
