As remote work in the age of COVID-19 is forecast to stay for many Americans, more and more professionals are choosing new places to live. Lately, more Americans have been choosing to live in Mexico, including Mexico City. It has become a top destination for young professionals working remotely, CBS News correspondent Enrique Acevedo reports. "Now we have younger Americans that can work remotely looking for a better quality of life ... and they're coming now to Mexico City," said Alexandra Demou, founder of a relocation and real estate company called Welcome Home Mexico. "They love the climate," she said. "They love the people, the culture, the food, the beauty." "Yes, of course, safety can be an issue. ...

Working from home leaves four in five bosses worried their employees are not being productive, a new study has found. A survey of more than 20,000 staff across 11 countries from Microsoft found that while 87 per cent of employees felt they worked as efficiently, or even more efficiently, from home - 80 per cent of managers disagreed. Satya Nadella, Microsoft's chief executive, told the BBC that workplaces are unlikely to ever return to pre-pandemic scenarios. And Ryan Roslansky, the boss of Microsoft-owned LinkedIn, said that of the 15million job listings typically on LinkedIn, only around 2 per cent of those involved remote working prior to March 2020. Employers offering working from home as an option in the spring and early summer stood at 20 per cent, but this figure has since come down to 15 per cent this September. Mr Nadella told the BBC: "We have to get past what we describe as 'productivity paranoia', because all of the data we have that shows that 80% plus of the … [Read more...] about Working from home leaves four of five bosses worried their staff are not being productive

Ella Bates-Hermans The notion of “free” childcare is a myth. A policy that promised free early childhood education (ECE) for kids aged 3 to 5 has faded so far that parents are routinely paying $65 a day. In the first of a series investigating the state of childcare, National Correspondent Michelle Duff reveals government subsidies have been effectively completely swallowed up, and parents are back to paying what they were before "20 Hours Free" was introduced. Parents are routinely paying more than $300 a week for childcare for over 3-year-olds even with the 20 hours subsidy, with the promise of a child’s right to access “free” care now completely swallowed up. Dozens of women spoken to for a Stuff investigation talked of being forced to leave their jobs, change careers, cut back hours, bring their babies to work or ferry family members from other parts of the country to look after their children. Working parents are confused and overwhelmed by the cost, having … [Read more...] about ‘I can’t afford to work’: ‘Free’ childcare is a myth, and costs for parents are high
Armando Perez and his 81-year-old mother survived Hurricane Maria when it hit Puerto Rico in 2017. Five years later, they just witnessed Hurricane Fiona , a categorically less intense storm, but one that disrupted their lives nonetheless. Perez's mother, Carmen, has advanced Parkinson's disease and dementia and has been bedridden since June. The two live together in the town of Dorado. Perez bathes and feeds his mother and changes her diapers. But since Fiona hit the island five days ago, they've been without power or clean public water. Triple-digit temperatures are baking their home's concrete walls, turning Carmen's room into "a furnace" in the afternoon. "Even though the storm was not as bad, when the power goes out, no water, it just makes it super hard," Perez told CBS News on Friday. It's an eerily similar feeling to what life was like post-Maria, Perez said. "It is hell now. Maria was the closest thing to experiencing the end of the world," he said. "It looked … [Read more...] about Hurricane Maria’s impact was like “experiencing the end of the world” and Fiona has unleashed “hell.” It’s only expected to get worse.
RUSSIA's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has hinted Russia might have lost one of its last allies after he indicated an uneasy relationship with former supporter China. In recent days, China and India , once billed as friendly nations by the Kremlin, have heaped pressure on Vladimir Putin , following the president's biggest escalation of the Ukraine war - including nuclear threats and nationwide mobilisation . Lavrov, who was speaking at the UN General Assembly on Saturday, refused to answer a reporter's question about whether China is pressuring the Kremlin to end the war soon. Lavrov first argued about the journalist's choice of words before slamming: "Tell your readers that I avoided the question." China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who was also present at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, called for a negotiated end to the war. "China supports all efforts conducive to the peaceful resolution of the Ukraine crisis .

Remaining EU laws are to be torn up by the end of next year as part of the Chancellor's bid to reduce unnecessary costs for British businesses and unleash growth. Kwasi Kwarteng said the bonfire of red tape would lead to “a simpler system” that was easier for firms to navigate, as he also unveiled a bonanza of tax cuts to boost the flagging economy. He said government departments have been ordered to review all retained EU regulations by December 2023, by which point they will be “automatically” axed unless they are amended or replaced. According to official data, the UK has retained 2,417 pieces of EU law since leaving the bloc. Only 182 of these laws have been amended, 196 have been appealed and 33 have been replaced. The largest chunk – around 570 laws – govern environmental issues such as water quality, air quality, habitat protections and agricultural rules such as the use of pesticides, which the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs is … [Read more...] about All remaining EU laws to be scrapped or replaced by end of next year
