For many companies across industries, #hybridwork will become the norm. Studies say employees prefer being mainly remote with occasional trips to the office to collaborate together. Here's why I believe the shift to hybrid will be massive and what drives it - a #thread 👇
1. After a year of #remote work under less than ideal circumstances, employees expect flexibility and freedom, because they've shown they deserve it. Fewer employees than ever are ready to accept the commutes, the 9-5, and showing up to the #office just to be there 🤷‍♀️
2. Now we know the values of remote work, but we've also extracted the things we love most about workspaces and want to recreate them. The offices have benefits for collaboration, creative thinking, and human connection and people want those things back but without the faults.

Why do young people leave quantitative trading 5 to 7 years in their career, and what's your advice for aspiring quantitative traders?
@CQFInstitute @RiskDotNet @icmacentre @RiskMinds
The burnout (losing interest in the job) and dropout(leaving the job) rates are stupendous.
#Quantitative Specialist Roles as they exist in the Dealing Room in the form of #Treasury, Brokerage, Fund Management, #Investment Management, #Portfolio #Asset Management, #Derivative Market Making, and various other Front -Office #Risk Roles are highly demanding jobs indeed!
Most of the traders are asked to take a mandatory leave of up to two weeks or more at financial institutions, so they can relax a bit by staying away from the financial markets.

A thought on #NYC: the city isn’t dying, but it has problems: the cost of living is too high, #incomeinequality is rampant, and the city’s blood runs through its #transit system. Some things to consider:
(1) The #rent is too damn high, the residential market is distorted, and despite a 10% decline in #Manhattan rents they are still among the highest in the country #housing nytimes.com/2020/08/18/nyr…
(2) Some people are leaving the city. #Housing demand in the #suburbs can shift back to the city, but the suburbs make more sense for families now nytimes.com/2020/08/30/nyr…

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites"
kreis-vg.de Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)

People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.
(for one week, as of now)

Many of the long standing societal rules were re-written at times of crisis. We are undergoing one of the biggest crisis of our generation. Wonder what rules will be re-written in the post COVID world. Trying to predict few changes in the new world

Thread 1/n
AI and Digital transformation will lead the way in the post Covid world as people will finally wake up to the potential of technology in optimizing their respective businesses.

Education:
The de facto delivery of education will change to online mediums now that the education institutes will start seeing the potential of online education delivery. Low impact in K12, high impact in higher education.

This week has seen us working 100% remotely and assisting our clients with business continuity. Here are some tips for #RemoteWorking during these unprecedented times...

#EasyRemoteWorking #covid19 #covid19uk #coronavirus #workingfromhome #stayathome #quarantine #staypositive
1. Take regular breaks
Screen sharing & conference calls can be much more tiring than being face to face. There's more load on your brain filling in the blanks created by not seeing the people you're interacting with. Tip: try the #PomodoroTechnique
2. Use Video in your conference calls
Non-verbal cues are used in face to face communication. We gesture to indicate a desire to speak, we nod, we shake our head or look confused. People adapt communication from these, so we're better placed to leave with a shared understanding.

Die #IT-Umgebung des indischen #AKW's Kudankulam wurde nicht nur gehackt, sondern als Command and Control Server benutzt.

Hoffentlich war die #OT nicht auch öffentlich am Netz!

#KRITIS Sektor #Energie #nuclear #nuclearsafety #Resilienz #Cyber #Security

Zur Unterscheidung:

IT sind Informationstechnische Systeme (#PC #Laptop #Windows #Office, #Buchhaltung...)

OT sind Operative Systeme (#ICS #SCADA #SPS #HMI #PLC #Steuertechnik...)
Angemessener Stand der Technik #SdT wie in #KRITIS gefordert wurde offenbar im #AKW nicht eingehalten.

Strikte #Trennung zwischen #OT-Steuersystemen und #IT ist eine wesentliche #Sicherheitsmaßnahme!

You are worried about #facebook and #FaceApp, but use #Microsoft #Office every day? Time to be concerned! Did you know that Microsoft is processing lots of data about you without telling you about it? 1/n #GDPR #ePrivacy
Through its software and operating system, #Microsoft collects and stores personal data about user behavior, so-called #diagnostic data, on a large scale. Microsoft collects this data in various ways: 2/n
via system-generated logs of events on its servers and via the telemetry client in Windows 10, in Office 365 ProPlus, and in the mobile Office apps. These telemetry clients collect diagnostic data on your device and send this information to Microsoft's servers in the US. 3/n

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH

@TeaPainUSA 1/ I have personally experienced twelve #Presidents in my life, and formed over all those years a proud image in my mind of what the #Office of the #AmericanPresident means...

Those twelve have both satisfied and disappointed me to varying degrees, but they have shared...
@TeaPainUSA 2/...one attribute, that they brought mostly respect & honor to the office.

Now I arrive at my thirteenth President. I find myself at a loss to fully explain my feelings, because, after two years, when I expected at least some of the same sense I had of the prior twelve...
@TeaPainUSA 3/...instead I simply feel that a dark, black, malevolent void has settled on my #PresidentsHouse. And that feeling is getting worse.

I don’t know how many more #Presidents I will get to know. But I do know two things. One, my vision of #AmericasPromise is unchanged...
