Covid-19: Amazon reduced employee leave time to just one week

Published

on

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concluded that people who were no longer showing symptoms of Covid-19 would only need five days to get back into shape. A decision based on the fact that people with COVID-19 are more contagious.

Following this decision, Amazon decided to reduce the rest time of its employees. The period of leave initially of 14 days is now reduced to one week or 40 hours. With President Biden’s economic stimulus package coming to an end, employees lost their protection which stipulated that a sick employee should not be penalized on his salary, leaving all employers to set their own rule to deal with the pandemic.

Employees are worried about working despite their condition

In late December, the CDC’s decision reduced the length of the quarantine to 5 days. A few experts have expressed concerns that employees should return to work despite their illness. Amazon has, however, revised its policy. The company offers additional leave to people who are symptomatic beyond a week.

Other workers are forced to return to work because their economic conditions no longer allow them to stay at home. Amazon has not written strict rules for the situation. For example, those who can work remotely have the option of staying at home, while some employees such as delivery people and IT people have to be back on duty.

The decisions Amazon makes for people who work in warehouses

Amazon has decided that all of its warehouse workers will be required to wear masks, regardless of vaccination level or local mask requirements. The firm has said the health and safety of its employees is its top priority. In addition, faced with the rapid spread of the “omicron” variant, it has become important to put the masks back on.

The company did not make the same choices as Google which stipulated that workers who were not vaccinated would take unpaid time off, and even risk being made redundant. Apple has joined Amazon and has not demanded that its employees be vaccinated. However, unvaccinated employees will need to be tested from time to time. Thus, technology companies each have their own strategy for dealing with Covid-19.

Samsung is preparing a smartphone that will be weaker than

Smartphone Samsung Galaxy M54 lit up in the Geekbench database. Unfortunately, as previously reported, he will not receive any SoC Snapdragon 888, although this is expected.

Samsung’s mid-budget novelty will receive the same platform as the Galaxy A54. Probably, the Galaxy A34 will also receive it.

We are talking about the not yet presented Exynos 1380, which will replace the Exynos 1280. In the benchmark, the new SoC scores 750 and almost 2700 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. And this is almost the level of Snapdragon 778G, that is, this is an excellent result for a mid-budget smartphone. True, we are only talking about processor performance, and we do not yet know which GPU the new SoC will receive.

It is also worth noting that the Galaxy M52 was also based on the Snapdragon 778G, and the Galaxy M53 received a slightly less productive Dimensity 900. Thus, the Galaxy M54 model, at least in terms of the processor part, will be slightly inferior even not to its predecessor, but to the device two years ago.

Bullitt Group and MediaTek want to launch a satellite enabled smartphone

The British manufacturer Bullitt Group, which produces devices under the brands CAT and Motorola, intends to release a smartphone with satellite communications. They want to implement this project together with the Chinese chipmaker MediaTek.

It is assumed that the new smartphone will provide calls and text data via satellite, although it is not yet clear how this will work. The device itself will be released in the first quarter of 2023.

The novelty has been developed for two years, so the project is nearing completion. According to Bullitt Group co-founder Richard Wharton, previously the seamless integration of satellite communications into a smartphone was accompanied by problems, but now they are solved.

The new phone will be the first to use MediaTek’s 3GPP NTN chipset. The software will keep track of what type of connection is currently being used – Wi-Fi or cellular network. The connection to the satellite will be carried out only in the absence of both of these options.

It is claimed that the time to connect to the satellite and send a message is about 10 seconds. This is longer than a regular connection, but still pretty fast.

Note that Apple already has this and Samsung will soon have it.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible

Galax continues to prove that they are one of the best when it comes to overclocking graphics cards. After the departure of EVGA, Galax as a whole is probably the only company that places a strong emphasis on this direction.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible frequencies.  Galax RTX 4080 SG took the frequency over 3.6 GHz on the core

The GeForce RTX 4080 SG model was able to overclock to a frequency of over 3.6 GHz on the core. More precisely, we are talking about a frequency of 3615 MHz. This is slightly less than the RTX 4090 HOF at 3.8 GHz, but it’s still an incredible figure. Especially if you keep in mind that the GeForce RTX 4080 SG is no match for the HOF versions. At the same time, it is not yet known whether Galax will release the RTX 4080 HOF.

Galax, unfortunately, does not disclose overclocking details, but it can be assumed that we are talking about the use of liquid nitrogen, as in the case of extreme overclocking RTX 4090 HOF.
