Boeing to eliminate more than 12,000 U.S. jobs

Boeing announced on Wednesday it is immediately cutting more than 12,000 U.S. jobs, and several thousand more will be eliminated over the next few months. This week, the company will lay off 6,770 employees. Boeing said an additional 5,520 workers accepted buyout offers, and will leave within the next few weeks. Globally, the company has about 160,000 employees, and most of the layoffs are expected to be in the Seattle area, where workers focus on commercial airplanes, The Associated Press reports. Air travel is down tremendously because of the coronavirus, and Boeing CEO David Calhoun wrote in a memo to employees on Wednesday that because of this, there will be "a deep cut in the number of commercial jets and services our customers will need in the next few years, which in turn means fewer jobs on our lines and in our offices."

Please know there is no cure,” the leaflets read.That same year, Kramer found time to help the American Foundation for Equal Rights mount their play “8” on Broadway about the legal battle over same-sex marriage in California. “I don’t believe much acting is required other than being fervent and I’m pretty good at that,” he joked to The Associated

Coronavirus infection without symptoms might be more common than previously thought, according to a study of people isolated on a cruise ship during the pandemic. More than 80% of the passengers and crew on the unnamed cruise ship who tested positive for Covid-19 were asymptomatic. The prevalence of the virus on affected cruise ships is therefore likely to be “significantly underestimated”, the study published in the journal Thorax concludes. “Strategies are needed to assess and monitor all passengers to prevent community transmission after disembarkation,” the Australia-based researchers said.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has admitted people could end up repeatedly in self-isolation even if they have had coronavirus when test and trace is launch on Thursday in England. Speaking to ITV's Peston programme, Mr Hancock explained that due to the number of unknowns still related to coronavirus, quarantining is the safest option, even if someone has already had the respiratory disease, due to the lack of definitive knowledge about antibodies and whether they make you immune from further infection or able to pass the illness on to others. Asked if some who had recovered from coronavirus would need to self-isolate, Mr Hancock said: "Yes, including me. "I tested positive, I recovered, and I have had one of these antibody tests, I know I have the antibodies. "But what we do not yet conclusively know, and this is a million dollar question, is if you have antibodies, does that mean you are both immune to getting the disease yourself again? "And, critically, does it mean you can't pass the disease on to other people?…

We all experience cognitive dissonance, or the state of having inconsistent thoughts or beliefs. For example, we know it’s important to be active, but we spend most of our days rotating between our desks, couches, and beds. Getting exercise isn’t fun, but it’s important for our health, so we feel guilty about not doing it.

Nizamuddin gathering: Why no curbs on TV channels circulating fake news? SC asks

NEW DELHI, May 27: The Supreme Court on Wednesday came down heavily on those instigating law and order issues by telecasting fake news and wanted to know from the Centre and the Press Council of India (PCI) to respond in two weeks on the action taken against such news channels.Telling the Centre not to let people instigate law and order issues, a bench comprising Chief Justice Sharad A. Bobde, and Justices A.S. Bopanna and Hrishikesh Roy told the Centre that "these are the things that later become law and order issues when not checked."Chief Justice Bobde asked the petitioners to implead the News Broadcasters Association (NBA) – the apex body of visual media - as a respondent. The court orders came on a batch of petitions by Jamiat Ulama -i-Hind, DJ Halli Federation of Masaajib Madaaris & Waqf Institute, Abdul Kuddus Laskar, and the Peace Party drawing attention to the alleged fake news carried by certain news channels in the wake of Nizamuddin Markaz congregation that had sparked anxiety about the spread of…

I appreciate SC's uo Moto Move

Dear Editor,It is good dicision that looking at the unfortunate and miserable conditions of migrant labourers walking on-foot and cycles from long ditances, a three-judge Bench of the Supreme Court took note of "problems and miseries" of labourers stranded by the coronavirus lockdown. Taking up the case, addressing to the Centre and the states the top court ordered to immediately provide transport, food and shelter free of cost to the stranded migrant workers. Because of their complaining of not being provided food and water by administration at places where they were stranded, they have been asked to report to it on "steps taken to redeem the miseries" of migrant labourers within 48 hours or by Thursday. I appriciate the Supreme Court that in this difficult situation of lockdown, this is carried weight dicision for the stranded mirgant workers. Also I am quite certain that migrants are on top of the world, and all ears such action.--Abu Khuzaima UP

SC's order about stranded migrants workers is a good step

Dear Editor,. It is noticeable to say that a three-judge bench of the Supreme Court on May 26 said there have been "Inadequacies and certain lapses" on the part of the Central and State governments in dealing with the migrant workers crisis during the lockdown. Newspaper reports and other media reports have been continuously showing the unfortunate and miserable conditions of migrant workers walking on the foot and cycling for the long distance", the Court stated. Adding "Effective concentrated efforts were required to redeem the situation". So I suppose that, although, SC's this step is late, but is better, because lakhs of people are forced on the roads and footpaths to walk on the foot, no one is ready to help them except some people. Really, it was time to help them, but it shouldn't happen, on which, many of them have died because of starvation, long distance and accidents. Now the govt must stand to help them. --Jauhar Mumbai

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 P.M.) – French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Wednesday that a Syrian scenario is being repeated in Libya and the situation is very worrying. “The crisis is getting worse … We are facing the Syrian scenario in Libya,” Le Drian said at a French Senate hearing.

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Hong Kong legislators are holding a debate on Wednesday over a controversial bill that would require schools to teach China's national anthem, organisations to play it and sing it, and anyone who disrespects it to face jail or fines. The debate comes on the heels of Beijing's proposal last week to directly impose national security legislation in the Chinese-ruled city, stoking global concerns over the prospect of a dramatic assertion of Chinese control on the city.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – According to a new report, there are diplomatic efforts made in secret by Tehran to change its policies towards Iraq after the assassination of the Iranian General Qassem Soleimani during a U.S. raid near Baghdad International Airport. Citing unnamed sources, Reuters reported that the goal of the new methods pursued by Iran is to break the political deadlock in Baghdad, and to accelerate the departure of nearly 5,000 US soldiers from Iraq, according to three senior Iranian officials involved in the process. “Sometimes you should take a step back, monitor and plan based on the facts on the ground,” said a senior Iranian official, who asked not to be named. He added: “We want the Americans to leave the region. If there is chaos in Iraq … the Americans will use it as an excuse to extend their stay.” According to the report, since the killing of Soleimani, Iranian officials had held “serious talks” with Iraqi President Barham Saleh for the first time in years to build confidence and…

It only took two hours for Trump's administration to contradict his threat to shut down Twitter

President Trump took to his favorite social media platform to attack social media platforms on Wednesday morning, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo certainly didn't do anything to help his boss' case. Shortly after Trump claimed on Twitter he would "strongly regulate" or "close down" social media platforms that are allegedly silencing "conservative voices," Pompeo sent out a tweet saying the U.S. "will not tolerate" government-imposed censorship or shutdowns. Pompeo's tweet isn't in response to Trump, exactly — it references the Freedom Online Coalition, a partnership of 31 governments seeking to improve Internet freedom. The group has been vocal about combating any attempts to limit freedom of expression or increase Internet surveillance as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Trump's social media threats came after Twitter labeled two of his tweets as misleading on Tuesday, the first time that distinction was given to the president on the platform. Seeing as Pompeo specifically boosted the FOC's statement…

Changing the way we use public space in Cape Town is vital to the city’s response to Covid-19

The easing of lockdown measures brings issues of personal safety and personal space to the forefront of the public psyche. Cape Town, like so many cities around the world, will face challenges when it comes to public space. From the need to ensure physical distancing, to the limitations in our non-verbal communication curtailed by masks, the way we interact with each other in public might never be the same.

Jerry Falwell Jr. says he'll only wear a mask featuring Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's blackface yearbook photo

Jerry Falwell Jr. is conceding to Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's (D) coronavirus-fighting demands with a mask that's almost certain to backfire. Northam's recent order mandating everyone in the state wear a mask when they're in public has seemingly made Falwell pretty mad about preserving public health. So on Wednesday, the Liberty University president and influential conservative figure, revealed he'd ordered a mask printed with the blackface photo found on Northam's college yearbook page — something anyone who sees Falwell wearing the mask will likely not know. It's been more than a year since it was revealed Northam's 1984 yearbook page featured a photo of a person in blackface standing beside a person in KKK robes. While Northam said he had worn blackface before, he maintained that he wasn't either of the men in the photo, and a three-month investigation couldn't prove it was or wasn't him. That photo is on Falwell's new mask, though without any context or explanation, those unfamiliar with Northam's scandal…

Preparing for upsurge

With number of cases of Coronavirus patients surpassing 1.50 lakh with less than a week for the fourth lockdown to end, the Centre and the state governments must concentrate on being innovative in increasing the medical facilities to tackle the upsurge. The case load and quarantine facilities created so far appear to have been over-loaded as the number of cases has been rising steadily in the last one week. If the testing of the suspected patients is taken to a larger sphere, it is definite that the number will be higher. It is important to note that with relaxation in restrictions from the third phase of the lockdown has further added to the challenges faced by the country's already overburdened health facilities. The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) figures suggest that the positive cases rate has gone up to 7 percent in three weeks of phase three and four of the lockdown while it was around 3 percent at the end of Lockdown 2.0. The mortality rate remaining static at about 3 percent is reassuring.…

Retrieving the True meaning of word Jihad

Words Jihad and Jihadi have been in abundant use for the negative purposes from last two decades in particular. They have been closely linked to the word terrorism and violence, done by section of Muslims here and there. This global use of word is particularly a post 9/11 phenomenon. Just to recapitulate after the WTC was hit by two aeroplanes; the building sunk leading the death of nearly three thousand innocent people. The victims belonged to most countries and religions. In the aftermath; Osama bin Laden called it Jihad. American media coined the word Islamic terrorism since then. Most of the acts indulged in by Muslim terror groups have been labelled under this title. This; irrespective of the fact that many an Islamic Scholars, many a Muslim clerics like Maulanas of Deoband and Barelvi, stating that Islam does not approve of violence against innocent people. The words have stuck.This has also become one more weapon in the hands of communal sectarian elements. Apart from the mainstream media social media…

T20 World Cup 2020 to be rescheduled to 2022

Dear EditorHaving a cursory glance on the scenario, it seems that the T20 world cup to be held in October will most likely be pushed back to 2022.This is because there is already a T20 world cup scheduled in October 2021 in India and to schedule two world cups of the same format in one year seems improper. Till a few days back there was talk that the T-20 world cup will be pushed back to February-March.However, this is unlikely now for the reason that the current market scenario is not ready to support two world cups within 6 months, a point of concern for the host broadcaster Star Sports. If the IPL happens in India in October, Star, sources confirm, is apprehensive of broadcasting 2 IPL in 6 months and 2 World Cups in 2021.The market, which is at its lowest at the moment isn’t in a position to support the scheduling. As a result the world cup will be moved to 2022. The works for everyone. First, the tournament will be postponed, not cancelled. This means cricket’s finances won’t be badly hit. Second there was…

Most psychologists say that this lockdown, will help bring families together, but I doubt that will happen as long as our mobile phones keep us company..Unless….And I mischievously wondered what would happen if suddenly all mobile phones went dead:A husband and wife sit down to lunch. He, glued to his expensive phone looks at his wife in shock as she also holding hers looks back in horror."Hello! Hello!" he shouts."Hello! Hello!" she also shouts into her cell."No network!" he shouts at her."Dead!" she shouts back.They look at each other then stare at the food on the table. They eat in silence for awhile then he looks up, "who are you?" he asks."Kamala!""My wife!""You mean, you are…""Mohan!""Oh my God! My husband! How are you Mohan? We haven't spoken to each other in….""Three years since I picked up my iPhone, and your brother gifted you a Samsung!""Where do you live nowadays?""Here. And you?""Here too!

Former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan and Nobel Prize winner Abhijit Banerjee were among his first few guests. The interaction was put up by the Congress on its social media platforms."India would ruin its economy if it has a very severe lockdown," Professor Giesecke said adding that coronavirus, which is a "very mild disease", will affect "almost everyone in the world"."The disease is very mild.

HOW TO AVOID ZOOM FATIGUE?

NEW DELHI, May 27: Everyone today logs into video-conferencing app 'Zoom' to chat as face-to-face chats are not possible in view of the Coronavirus-induced Lockdowns. Zoom meetings can feel more taxing than face-to-face meetings, a psychologist says.Video conferencing offers a way to stay connected with co-workers, family, and friends during the Coronavirus pandemic. But too much of it can tax our brains to the point of “Zoom fatigue.”Priti Shah, a psychology professor at the University of Michigan, studies cognitive tasks that require managing multiple goals, integrating different sources of information, and forming coherent, memorable representations.Here, she explains what causes the Zoom fatigue, what lessons video conferencing can teach us, and how we can find a balance between Zoom and the rest of our life:Q: What causes “Zoom fatigue”?A: Zoom meetings are more demanding cognitively than face-to-face meetings, which rely a lot on visual cues.

Boost Village Economy

Dear Editor,India is a country where one can find many villages. Due to unavailability of basic needs and unemployment, most of the people prefer to move into the metro cities for work. The crisis came-up from this lockdown lead to migrant workers going back to their villages. In our country, the village economy mostly based on agriculture works. Presently, farmers are facing many challenges. Sometimes, they are not reaching out to the break-even point by selling fruits, vegetables and other agricultural products. The government welfare schemes have not reached to all so far. There is a big scope in putting village economy up, if the government will be able to take it seriously and plan further to boost the village economy. It will be helpful for creating new jobs, fulfilling the needs of villagers and empowering them.--Amit Singh Kushwaha, Satna (M.P)

(For fuller discussion read 3 issues of KT dated 27 to 29 April, 2020: Is Article 370 dead?) Historical irony:Truly, it is historical irony that the descendants of those Kashmiri Pandits who had initiated the movement for securing Kashmiris' rights under the slogans of "Kashmir for Kashmir" & "down with outsiders", and who were joined in the movement later in 1925 by the Jammu Dogra Sabha and who took that campaign to its logical conclusion, have been at the forefront of Hindu nationalist parties of India for destruction of the law, that guaranteed "Kashmir for Kashmiris", and substituting it with the law that announces "Kashmir for all".

Mind you, not one of the central ministers has bothered to walk till about the roadside or the highway and publicly and profusely apologize to the grief -stricken fleeing masses - our precious labourers and migrant workers. Instead, the Right-Wing brigades raised a hue and cry when Rahul Gandhi met and spoke to the migrant workers. He met them out there in the open. As a worried, concerned and earnest leader he wanted to meet them and find out what should be done to ease their trauma in the ongoing conditions.In fact, the Right-Wing rulers of the day should have been talking to the migrant workers on a one- to- one basis. But they didn't. Perhaps, they opted to…

Strange are the ways of China. The ongoing border tensions between India and China in the Ladakh sector have revealed how Beijing operates. For instance, China wants to build roads everywhere, including in regions claimed by India, but will not allow India to do so in its own regions. China’s military wants to change the status quo in its favour but it will not countenance others wanting the same. After laying down extensive road, railway and fibre-optic networks and deploying military forces over years, now, China is trying to stop India from doing the same on the Indian side.
