Good news for Facebook employees!  The founder of the famous social network made an unusual announcement on Thursday, May 21.  He said he would allow a considerable number of Facebook's 50,000 employees, as well as new recruits, to work from home all the time!

 Mark Zuckerberg said on Thursday, May 21, that in the next five to 10 years, about 50% of Facebook's workforce will work remotely.  The founder of the social network added that this will involve, among other things, a radical change in the way the famous Silicon Valley-based company operates.


Mark Zuckerberg explained that the process is a long one and that it will take place in a series of steps that must be followed exactly in order to be successful.  The first step is "an aggressive opening of distance recruitment," first in the United States, then abroad, beyond urban centers where Facebook has offices.  "I don't think it's good to limit employment to people living around offices," said the Facebook CEO.


The Facebook founder is not the first to think of such a radical measure!  Also on Thursday, the head of Twitter announced that his employees could work from home indefinitely.  The Canadian e-commerce company Shopify announced a similar measure later that day, as the coronavirus pandemic paved the way for unexpected changes in the organization and operation of large companies around the world.

how-to-make-a-protective-mask-if-you-dont-know-how-to-sew-its-ready-in-minutes

You can’t find a protective mask in pharmacies or it’s price is hitting you?  If you want to protect yourself, a mask to cover the mouth and nose can be made at home.  However, a textile mask is not as effective as a surgical one, but it is very useful during this period.  If you do not know how to sew, with a scissors, a piece of material and two hair bands you can make a protective mask.


 The American Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) has reverted to previous recommendations made in the context of the pandemic and currently believes that wearing simple masks in textiles could slow the spread of coronavirus.


Instructions for making your home a protective mask


 The material used should be cut in such a way that it is wide and long enough to cover your nose and mouth 

 The material should be bent at length.

 At each end tie a hair elastic.

 Bring the ends tied inwards.

 Arrange the mask near the mouth and nose and fasten the elastics behind the ears.


It is important to know:

•Simple surgical masks have a much higher protection than textiles.

• Even if we wear a mask, we must keep at least 3 steps away from the others.

 •We disinfect / wash our hands before and after putting on our masks and do not touch them when wearing them.

 •After each use, the textile masks must be washed: a washing machine is sufficient.

 •Such textile masks are especially useful in places where physical distance is difficult to maintain: queues, small shops or pharmacies, crowded means of transport, etc.

• This recommendation can be used as an additional public health measure.

• The CDC emphasizes that textile masks should not be worn by children under 2 years of age or by persons with respiratory problems.

• The materials from which the textile masks are made do not sufficiently protect the hospital environment. 

•The World Health Organization strongly recommends wearing surgical masks or special protective masks in the hospital environment.

how-to-protect-yourself-from-coronavirus-if-you-need-to-get-back-to-work

These simple rules will help you stay healthy at your workplace during the coronavirus.


  1. Keep the social distance.


When you walk fast, run, ride a bicycle, it can increase to 4–20 meters.

 If you keep such a distance with others, the smallest droplets of saliva that will not reach you when talking, coughing, breathing will cause another, possibly infected person.  And you, in turn, do not share your own.


 2. Try changing your work schedule.


 Your task is to make it possible to get to work and leave it before or after rush hour.  In this case, you don’t have to jostle in crowded public transport or walk along crowded streets where it is difficult to maintain distance.

 Talk to your boss: maybe you will meet and shift your working hours.


 3. Use less public transport


 If possible, get to the place of work by your car or bike or walk.  Naturally, at a safe distance from others.

 And try not to use elevators.  Even if the cab comes empty, you don’t know who was riding it 10 seconds before you.  The virus can still remain in the air.

 4. Wear a mask on the way to work


 On the street, if you are absolutely healthy, and there are few people around, you can walk without it.  But only if the authorities of your region do not require otherwise.  


5. Wear a mask in the workplace


 You need to wear it all day for your safety.

 At the same time, you need to wear a mask correctly.  Here's what the WHO recommends:


  •  Do not touch the mask with your hands after putting it on.  If you still touch, wash your hands with soap or treat with an antiseptic gel.
  •  As soon as the mask becomes wet from breathing, replace it with a new one.  Usually you have to do this every two hours.
  •  Only remove the mask by the mounts.  In no case do not touch the part that is adjacent to the face.  After this, the disposable medical mask should be immediately discarded, the reusable - sent to the wash.


 6. Disinfect hands


 The primary transmission route for coronaviruses is via airborne droplets.  But there is a risk of contracting by the contact way: first, touch the surface on which the coronavirus donkeys, and then touch the mucous membrane of the nose, mouth, or eyes.


 Therefore, it is extremely important to wash your hands regularly during a pandemic.  Best of all - with warm water and soap, at least 20 seconds.  If there is no access to water, you can treat your hands with an antiseptic or alcohol wipes.  Make sure that the alcohol in these products was at least 70%.

arnold-schwarzenegger-advices-fans-to-stay-home-while-the-novel-coronavirus-pandemic-intensifies

The battle against the novel coronavirus pandemic intensifies, celebrities are using their social networks to urge people to help stop the spread of the virus by practicing social distancing.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who in a posted video is feeding his pet donkey and miniature pony in the kitchen, is consequently asking his fans to consider the safety of everyone around.

In the clip Schwarzenegger is spending quality time with Whiskey the pony and Lulu the donkey while staying at home, the celebrity is arguing that limiting time spent in public isn't all that bad.

"See, the important thing is that you stay at home, because there's a curfew now. No one is allowed out. Especially someone who is, like, 72 years old (referring to himself). After you are 65, you are not allowed out of the house anymore in California. So we stay home and we eat here," Schwarzenegger mentions.

The star is telling his furry friends: "We don't go out, we don't go to restaurants, we don't do anything like that anymore here."

Schwarzenegger told his 4.4 million Twitter followers that they are the one who can protect older people with weaker immune systems and not only, but everyone around so people will not contact the deadly virus.

"Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together," Schwarzenegger highlighted in his tweet.

compilation-of-best-screenshots-during-video-conference-calls

The coronavirus pandemic is creating big troubles for people. Work and studies from home are the new conditions for everyone all across the globe. To prevent the virus from spreading at the workplace, schools and universities, more and more companies are turning to remote work as a necessary step to continue realizing their agenda. This unpredicted new reality is for an unknown time limits, but it made the bosses meet their employees online.


One of the leaders decisions, is to encourage people to work from home during quarantine. Working from home for someone is paradise, but for others can be horrible. Families with children found here a big problem, no video conference without them. There are also some people who have problems with modern technology, so they transform themselves in a potato, using some filters and are unable to figure out how to turn the filter off.

The global work-from-home movement intended to maintain efficiency during the COVID-19 pandemic, so people can maintain economic stability in their family budget. The closure of schools and transition to “distance learning” for children, created the condition of studying at home, so students now are the one who also have daily online conferences.

For many persons, setting up a home office is a full creation, while in self-isolation people get creative. Some parents share their desk space with kids or are having furry little friends participate in conference calls. No matter in which situation you are, you have to work or study at home. Online conferences are the best option, while learning and working process is maintained.
