    New York (CNN Business)Google on Wednesday said it plans to invest $9.5 billion in US offices and data centers around the country this year, up from more than $7 billion in 2021.The big bet on office space comes as Google (GOOG) is embracing a hybrid work model. The Alphabet-owned company has called for many of its employees to work in an office three days a week after two years of being fully remote. Wall Street is battling to determine the future of work from home"It might seem counterintuitive to step up our investment in physical offices even as we embrace more flexibility in how we work," Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Alphabet and Google, said in a blog post Wednesday. "Yet we believe it's more important than ever to invest in our campuses and that doing so will make for better products, a greater quality of life for our employees, and stronger communities." Google said it will open an office in Atlanta this year and continue to develop and expand office space in Austin and New York. Google also said...
    A return to in-person learning has seen standardized test scores improve across the United States, a new national study has found - but students are still lagging behind pre-pandemic levels. The results, released this week by standardized test provider Renaissance Learning Inc., analyzed reading scores for 4.4 million students from kindergarten to 12th grade in all 50 states, as well as 2.9 million students' math marks during the 2020 and 2021 school years.    It found student performance during the second year of the pandemic was markedly worse than the first year, with each state seeing marked declines in 2021, suggesting remote learning has had a lasting - and negative - impact on student achievement. It also found that children are still performing worse at every level in math and reading than before remote learning was introduced. However, when it came to the change in scores for the tests - which are given to students twice a year, first in the fall and then in the winter - the study found that the winter marks had improved slightly, indicating some improvement in the latter...
    The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency wants to receive from all quarters the “commitment to safety and security” of Ukrainian power plants. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has issued a warning almost two weeks after the Russian military took control of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. According to him, systems that allow remote control of the plant’s nuclear materials have stopped sending him data. In a statement released TuesdayRafael Croce, president of the United Nations Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), described the “remote transfer of data from security surveillance systems installed at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.” The IAEA uses the term “safeguards” to describe technical measures applicable to nuclear weapons and operations, with the aim of preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons by detecting the misuse of such materials in advance. Plant workers in “difficult and stressful situations” Since the plant was captured by the Russians in late February, more than 200 technicians and guards have been trapped at the site, working for 13 consecutive days under Russian surveillance. The IAEA has asked Russia to allow them...
    Remote learning led to declines in test scores in English and math when compared to the scores of schools that had more in-person learning, according to a paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). Leadership throughout the COVID-19 pandemic forced many schools to close in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus, but many schools remained closed throughout the 2020-2021 school year. According to new research from the NBER, remote learning had a negative impact on students’ test scores in English language arts (ELA) and math in all 12 states studied. Declines in scores were smaller for students who continued in-person learning. “Our research shows that test score losses are significantly larger in districts with less in-person learning,” Emily Oster, professor of economics at Brown University, told Yahoo News. “This suggests, yes, that virtual learning was — and is — less effective than in-person learning, at least as measured by school-based testing.” “Passing rates in math declined by 14.2 percentage points on average; we estimate this decline was 10.1 percentage points smaller for districts fully in-person,” the...
    Facebook insiders claim the tech giant's seven-hour outage that caused all of its services to go offline was exacerbated by employees working from home as staff were locked out of remote messaging systems and company buildings. The social media company, which has been leading the charge for post-pandemic remote working, had all the systems needed to fix the issue disabled, from digital engineering tools to messaging services and even key fobs at the Menlo Park headquarters in California. One source said remote staff were left unable to communicate with each other to fix the issue, while a data centre where the servers are located at Santa Clara was short-staffed due to Covid restrictions and WFH.  Jonathan Zittrain, director of Harvard's Berkman Klein Centre for Internet and Society, said: 'Facebook basically locked its keys in its car.' The tech giant has around 60,000 employees globally and announced in May that it would be operating with a 25 per cent capacity in its offices once it reopened in July. They planned to have 50 per cent of the workforce in the office by...
    Midway Atoll was the site of an important turning point in world history in the 1940s. The Battle of Midway occurred in June 1942, six months after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The tiny chain of islands that make up the Midway Atoll ended up playing a pivotal role in the history books and turning the tide on World War II’s action in the Pacific. While conflict may have ended decades ago during the First Battle of Midway, there appears to be a second battle of a different type raging both on land and at sea. And unlike the wartime fighting that was fueled by international tensions, this new battle is rooted in a common culture obsessed with consumption and throwaway goods. It’s a battle between the environment and garbage that’s thrown away but never actually goes away. The characteristics of this second Battle of Midway do not involve heavy artillery, strategically planned attacks, or a direct assault on human life. Rather, the war is more passive in nature from man in his onslaught of wildlife on this...
    New York (CNN Business)Business leaders had a lot on their plates over the past year, and many have let cybersecurity fall by the wayside. Nearly half of businesses say work-from-home policies have hurt their cybersecurity practices, according to Verizon's (VZ) 2021 Mobile Security Index, published Tuesday. The report includes findings from a survey of 856 professionals responsible for buying, managing and securing mobile and internet of things (IOT) devices for companies.The results are pretty dismal if not terribly surprising — 45% of respondents say their companies are sacrificing mobile security to just "get the job done." Last spring's rapid transition to remote working was a huge undertaking for IT teams, and a number of high profile security breaches last year exposed the challenges of securely running a remote team. The WFH cyber-threatConsidering the potential cybersecurity pitfalls of working from home is especially important as many companies consider maintaining a remote working model either full- or part-time even after the pandemic ends.Read More"The pandemic caused a global shift in the way organizations operate ...

    The pandemic has transformed education, both on college campuses and in K-12 classrooms. Distance learning is the new norm, and while students are already returning to the classroom, e-learning will likely become more common post-pandemic. What are the benefits of distance learning, both for students and the planet? What are the drawbacks? And what challenges will educators and administrators face in providing online remote learning opportunities in the future? Impact on the Planet One of the often-overlooked benefits of distance learning is that it indirectly reduces CO2 emissions. In 2011, Dr. J. Elliot Campbell, currently a professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and Dr. David E. Campbell, a researcher affiliated with Humboldt State University, published a study on distance learning’s “mitigation of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions contributing to climate change.” In other words, the researchers tested whether students enrolled in online courses were responsible for fewer emissions than their commuting classmates. The study found that students enrolled in an online course who lived off-campus drove to school less than they would have had the class been held...
    Google CEO Sundar Pichai speaks on stage during the annual Google I/O developers conference in Mountain View, California, May 8, 2018.Stephen Lam | Reuters Google says it plans to spend more than $7 billion on real estate across the U.S. in 2021 as it resumes spending in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The company said the money will go toward expanding offices and data centers across 19 states, creating what it says will amount to at least 10,000 full-time jobs. $1 billion will go specifically toward California. "Coming together in person to collaborate and build community is core to Google's culture, and it will continue to be an important part of our future," CEO Sundar Pichai said in an blog post Thursday. "So we continue to make significant investments in our offices around the country, as well as our home state of California, where we will be investing over $1 billion this year." Google parent company Alphabet paused its real estate spending last year in the wake of the pandemic and Google's first-ever year-on-year revenue decline in the second...
    The way we work is changing as operating remotely becomes increasingly common. That’s even true for the world of soccer scouting. After firing Leicester to the Premier League’s summit with a 2-0 win over Chelsea in late January, James Maddison used his post-match interview to highlight the work of esteemed Leicester analyst Jack Lyons. A former tactics blogger, Lyons was snapped up by Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers due to his online content, a testament to the growing importance of data and analytics in soccer. One group benefitting from this increased visibility is the remote network of scouts, analysts and bloggers Lyons hails from. He identifies two conflicting factors at play; the heightened funding for analysis departments at professional clubs, versus the growing competition incentivizing teams to cut costs. However, there are reasons to be hopeful about the future of scouting in an increasingly remote world. According to Lamberts, remote scouting “has really opened the eyes of the people responsible for data recruitment, scouting or analysis, and they are looking more to online possibilities.” “I think we’ve seen what an analyst...
    By Alexander Marrow MOSCOW (Reuters) - Four thousand kilometres from Moscow near the shores of the Angara River, a Russian firm operating a vast data centre run on cheap local hydroelectric power is reaping the rewards of bitcoin's surging prices and plans to double its power output this year. BitRiver hosts equipment at its flagship 100-megawatt data centre in the city of Bratsk, along with other smaller sites, for foreign miners of the cryptocurrency from the United States, Europe and Japan who want to harness the region's cheap energy. The company could already be responsible for as much as 2% of global bitcoin mining, Chief Executive Igor Runets estimated, but added precise figures in the sector were hard to come by. The price of bitcoin has risen almost 300% since the start of November and topped $50,000 dollars for the first time last month, as Tesla Inc bought $1.5 billion worth of bitcoin and other large companies and investment houses followed small traders into the asset. Bitcoin is earned -- or 'mined' -- by using your computer to help process...

    Determined city kids in a Department of Education internship program found a small silver lining amid the coronavirus chaos. Sponsored by Bank of America, the DOE’s Career and Technical Education program — which offers a summer finance course followed by a fall internship with a local business — was forced to go fully remote due to the pandemic. But participants said the abrupt pivot likely offered a valuable preview of the professional landscape that awaits them. Instead of heading to an office, they held all of their training sessions and work meetings online. It’s a model, they said, that will become increasingly standard in the years and decades ahead. “We learned about the impact of the coronavirus on business,” said Tamar Chulukhadze, 16, a junior at Brooklyn Studio Secondary School. “Going from cash to cards, having people not go outside as much.

    This past week, the US government made the single biggest, most impactful set of changes to drone law we’ve yet seen — ruling that almost every drone in US airspace will need to broadcast their locations, as well as the location of their pilots, in order to “address safety, national security, and law enforcement concerns regarding the further integration of these aircraft into the airspace of the United States”. Google (technically, Alphabet) isn’t too happy about those new rules, as it turns out. The company’s drone delivery subsidiary Wing wrote a somewhat fearmongering post (via Reuters) titled “Broadcast-Only Remote Identification of Drones May Have Unintended Consequences for American Consumers,” which argues that the FAA’s decision to have drones broadcast their location might let observers track your movements, figuring out where you go, where you live, and where and when you receive packages, among other examples. “American communities would not accept this type of surveillance of their deliveries or taxi trips on the road. They should not accept it in the sky,” Wing argues. With that kind of language,...
