Oplan Kalinga is an initiative being implemented in the city, which seeks to provide quarantine facilities to possible and confirmed coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients of other cities that are no longer capable of accommodating their constituents for various reasons.

Through Executive Order No. 39 Series of 2020 issued by Mayor Joy Belmonte, the local government aims to “enhance the city’s coordination with the concerned national government agencies and barangays, and to ensure that safeguards are in place prior to each implementation” of the program.

NHL 21 Technical Test Is Out Now, And Players Are Struggling With The Michigan Move

One of the most exciting new additions for NHL 21 is the “Michigan” skill move, so when the game’s closed technical test went live today, people understandably tried to pull it off.

However, it’s proving to be exceptionally difficult–so much so that some believe it might be bugged. Hockey YouTuber Nasher says he’s tried more than 500 times but hasn’t been able to do it. He even created a “dangler” build to give himself a greater chance, but it still isn’t working for him.

For what it’s worth, EA Sports said players should expect The Michigan

Technical Difficulties Arise During First Day Of Virtual School

BETHESDA, MD — The first day of school kicked off Aug. 31 for more than 166,000 Montgomery County Public Schools students. But many said they had problems logging into their virtual classrooms through myMCPS.

A number of parents and students said it took them upward of 15 minutes to access the school system’s online portal. Some could only access their virtual classrooms for a few minutes before the server kicked them out.

The school system has asked families to be patient when online systems, like myMCPS Classroom, experiences technical difficulties due to increased demand.

Stress, Burnout and Technical Issues Threaten the Benefits of Working From Home, According to Adaptavist Study

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A new study by digital transformation leaders, Adaptavist, highlights the threats to long-term productivity and employee well-being posed by improvised solutions during the transition to remote work. Overall, 82% of people report they are equally (47%) if not more productive (35%) working from home, and company-wide communications have improved during the pandemic. However, the lack of a shared understanding of which tool to use and how to communicate with it, combined with the ‘always on’ nature of working from home, brings added stress and motivational challenges for workers.

The Adaptavist Digital Etiquette Study, which includes survey responses from 2,800 knowledge workers across the UK, USA, Canada and Australia, shows remote working offers major benefits for businesses, but new digital communication and productivity challenges have also emerged.

The study found significant benefits to 100% remote working approach

Access to food aid eased for students in technical programs

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Food assistance has been extended to students pursuing technical education.

The state of Michigan said federal money will help pay for the program.

Roughly 16,000 low-income college students who are enrolled in career and technical education programs could be eligible for SNAP, which stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The benefits typically are used at stores with a debit-style card.

As students are “preparing for high-demand, critical job openings, they shouldn’t have to worry about how they’ll get their next meal,” said Jeff Donofrio, director of the labor department. “These SNAP benefits will help them focus on their educational needs and prepare for a successful future.”
