As recently as last month, news outlets across the country were still covering the Great Resignation —the unprecedented shift in turnover that saw employees leaving their jobs in droves in search of better positions. Yet in light of the recent tech-stock selloff and economic downturn, it looks like the tech industry’s insatiable appetite for new talent is slowing among certain industries. This is being touted as the Great Reset . advertisement advertisement Over the last few years, enthusiastic tech founders were able to take advantage of an unusual period in history where the market was flush with capital from overzealous investors and government-backed stimulus. Those founders are now waking up to a new reality and discovering that the money they raised is being burned at an unsustainable pace. Companies are making difficult decisions as a result, including a wave of layoffs across the tech industry. Other companies, including Meta , are … [Read more...] about How employers and candidates can adjust to the Great Reset

Simone Galimberti (The Jakarta Post) Kathmandu ● Wed, January 27, 2021 2021-01-27 01:44 518 0920e6703081f028872405a52611af54 3 Opinion ASEAN,COVID-19,recovery,plan,sovereignty,ASEAN-secretariat,EU Free With the ASEAN recently presenting its own pandemic recovery plan, officially the ASEAN “Comprehensive Recovery Framework and its Implementation Plan”, the entire region has a unique opportunity to reboot its integration process. Fully enforcing the recovery plan would certainly provide impetus to the idea that the wellbeing of the people living in the region is intrinsically linked to an ASEAN that, as an institution, must necessarily be stronger and far more united than it is now. Are the leaders of the region aware that the long-term implications of having the recovery plan realized might foresee a new scenario requiring more integration and consequentially a possible erosion of their nations’ sovereignty?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Typically, any discussion of actively removing carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) from the earth’s atmosphere to help reduce the greenhouse effect of manmade emissions has so far centered on carbon storage and capture. That usually means removing CO 2 from the waste stream at a high-emission generation point (for example, a power plant) and then putting it into long-term storage, such as by pumping it far underground. The problem with that approach is that it layers costs upon costs, with only very diffuse benefits. That makes it really difficult to get off the ground in any scalable way. What if instead, our elevated levels of atmospheric CO 2 were viewed as a business opportunity? That’s the approach that the folks at AirCapture LLC, based in Berkeley, California, are taking. Their mission is to use their Direct Air Capture (DAC) technology to pull CO 2 straight from the atmosphere, anywhere it’s needed for other industrial … [Read more...] about AirCapture And 3D Systems Partner To Make Decarbonizing Our Atmosphere Profitable
