The crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is the current scenario with which companies find themselves and is one of the greatest challenges for HR professionals.It is the workers and their daily tasks that mark the operation of a company, from the finance intern to the national sales manager, each one has a role, achieves objectives and represents value for the company.Promote remote activities among small random groups.Those responsible for human resources must be aware that it is an exceptional situation, and when it ends they need everyone to be as committed as when it started, they will also need an extra to be able to resume a rhythm of work damaged by the stoppage of many operations.For example, create remote weekly yoga meetings, or meet them to see a movie and then comment on it, propose a simple cooking class, or even create hour-long sessions with entertainers who virtually entertain the little ones, giving that respite to part of your workforce exhausted from having to reconcile work with children.Create a weekly # to comply and promote it on the internal social network or even on the company Linkedin Aren't celebrities challenging each other?

(NewsUSA) – Ulysses S. Grant may be one of the most complex and underappreciated generals and presidents in United States history, but he gets his due at last in a six-hour miniseries, "Grant," that premieres on HISTORY over Memorial Day weekend.The three-part series is executive produced by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Ron Chernow, author of the 2017 biography, "Grant," along with Appian Way’s Jennifer Davisson and Leonardo DiCaprio, and produced by RadicalMedia in association with global content leader Lionsgate.The first episode airs on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, and continues over the next two nights at 9:00 p.m."Ulysses S. Grant is one of our most brilliant, yet misunderstood presidents and HISTORY is committed to telling the compelling stories, like his, of those who have shaped our great nation," says Eli Lehrer, executive vice president and general manager for HISTORY."This is an important part of American history that deserves to be told and we look forward to delivering our latest premium core history documentary series to our audience," he adds.Today, Grant is unfamiliar and misunderstood by many people, despite his worldwide fame at the time of his death in 1885.The three-night miniseries event combines dramatic scenes, expert commentary, and archival images to reveal Grant’s true legacy, which involves a rise from humble beginnings through the highest ranks of the military, and finally to the presidency.While serving as president from 1869-1877, he held the United States together during the challenges of reconstruction after the devastation of the Civil War.Many people may be unaware that Grant’s initiatives while in office include protecting the right to vote for the four-million formerly enslaved people freed at the end of the war despite violence and widespread resistance.In addition, "Grant" features on-camera interviews with "Grant" biographer Ron Chernow, as well as David Petraeus, retired United States Army General and former Central Intelligence Agency director; Ta-Nehisi Coates, acclaimed writer and journalist, and Elizabeth Samet, professor of English at West Point.Visit history.com for more information about the series and other premium, fact-based storytelling and entertainment.Also, follow @history on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.Thanks: NewsUSAThis may be the time to consider Logo Design Services.You may also like Skrikingly and Instapaper

Listen to HuffPost Life’s weekly podcast Am I Making You Uncomfortable? about women’s health, bodies and private lives. Available on Spotify, Apple, Audioboom and wherever you listen to your podcastsAs borders between countries start to reopen and coronavirus lockdown rules begin to relax, we’re lusting for that holiday feeling after months of being cooped up indoors (even if we’re not all ready to jet off to Marbs quite yet).Sun, sea, sand and snogs from a beautiful stranger – who doesn’t love a holiday romance? Fuelled by warm weather, a carefree, ‘joie de vivre’ mindset and perhaps too much sangria, someone you wouldn’t look twice at back home seems suddenly attractive on foreign shores. Those feelings of intense lust and longing coupled with the time limit of a looming plane ticket home can turn on the holiday goggles every time.HuffPost UK spoke to those who fell hard for their holiday beaus to hear their unexpected travel fling stories. From drunkenly transporting expensive art across a foreign city to bringing your laundry along for an impromptu trip, love on the road is nothing if not random.Related... What You Need To Know Before Booking A Holiday This Year ‘He reminded me of Villanelle from Killing Eve’ Liz Beardsell, 38, an event producer and podcaster for Diary, She Wrote in Hackney recalls her memorable birthday adventure in Paris two years ago.“I wandered into an art gallery and the guy running it invited me to join him at his desk for a glass of red wine. He was white, dark-haired, handsome and had a look of Daniel Day-Lewis about him,” she explains. “I accepted his invitation, it led to a kiss, he gave me his number and the following morning I headed to his apartment and spent a few hours naked with him until we needed to return €20,000 worth of art.“After drunkenly clumsily wrapping it up together, like the Chuckle Brothers, we transported it in an Uber to another art gallery on the other side of Paris.”Beardsell saw the funny side but was also slightly on edge about potentially breaking one of the 3D elements and drastically reducing the piece’s value.“From here we went for red wine, steak and frites,” she recalls. “He told me he had been to jail for six months when he was 18 for beating up a man who’d groped his sister. He went to the toilet and came back to a full restaurant, locked my eyes, did a pirouette like a ballerina, and then bowed to the pretend crowds.”“The whole time we were together, he reminded me of Villanelle from Killing Eve – it was like witnessing two different personalities. He was confident, flirtatious and good looking. I really enjoyed his company and I was fascinated to see what was going to happen next, or what new story he was about to tell me.” ‘I asked him: Do you have a washing machine?’For Rochelle White, 34, who runs a marketing and PR agency in Milton Keynes, romance arrived when she used to work as a PR rep in Ayia Napa and got talking to an olive-skinned Turkish Cypriot man after the clubs were shut. “We chatted until the sun started to rise. I was hungry and we went to the shops and he bought me some fresh bread and Ribena,” says White. “He dropped me home where I was staying. He asked me to pack some things and bring my passport for tomorrow the day I met him and told me he was going to take me somewhere. Me being cheeky I asked: “Do you have a washing machine?” and he replied, “yes?” The next day I packed my passport along with my washing and we went to North Cyprus for the day.”That one day turned into four, White realised it was a big risk at the time, but she felt safe and trusted him. Their relationship lasted the rest of the summer season and the following two seasons when she returned to Ayia Napa. They even met up once when she returned to the UK. “We were never official, but we spent most evenings together. Although there was an age gap, it never felt like there was. We both were fun and didn’t take anything too seriously, loved the same music and just went with the flow,” she explains. “It naturally fizzled out, but I don’t know how it would have panned out if it was in the UK. We still speak to this day, but I would honestly say, it was one of the most fun, random summer romances I had ever had.”Related... Get The Party Started: Will We Ever Go Clubbing Again? ‘Sex was awkward, sweaty, poorly ventilated’James*, 27, writer based in New York, was on a working holiday covering a film festival in France when he met a young fellow American woman in the queue for waffle sandwiches. “I overheard her speaking English. I asked her if she was American as well and in town for the festival — we ended up eating lunch together and exchanging numbers,” he says. “Once I’d finished my writing that night, I texted and found out that her hotel was only a few blocks from my Airbnb. She nabbed a bunch of the little bottle of liquor from her hotel room (on her employer’s dime, of course) and brought them to the beach. We drank little nips of vodka and talked over the gentle crash of black water, which felt too romantic not to be acted on.”Related... Rules, Rants And Toilet Sex – Wedding Guests Share Their Most WTF Stories “We went back to mine, watched about twenty minutes of the film Kate Plays Christine in what I can now recognise as poorly-conceived foreplay and had awkward, sweaty sex. I remember, it was so damned hot and the flat I was staying in was so poorly ventilated that we both had to take a cold shower afterwards and tried to have sex again. Once we’d both collected ourselves, she left for the night, and I didn’t see her again during the festival.”Later in the year, they kept missing each other at different film festivals and fell out of touch. “We never met up again! I suppose that’s the faintly tragic end this romance deserves.”‘I dumped his demanding ass and had a fling with a Brit instead!’ Seetal Savla, 39, social and PR Manager, North London, had a French fling while working as a waitress on a holiday camp in Brittany when she was 17.She started seeing an older French man and things were going well until he started pressuring her to sleep with him. “We had a decent relationship. I was working and he was on holiday, so our time together was limited. We mainly kissed, cuddled and so on, but he wanted to take it further,” she explains. “He said I was frigid, made me feel bad for not wanting to go ‘all the way’ and that he’d dump me if I didn’t. Even though I wasn’t the most confident teen, I wasn’t going to cave in to this pressure when I wasn’t ready, so I dumped his demanding ass and had a better fling with a Brit instead!”‘He made soup and wrapped me in a blanket’Andrew, 30, a fitness trainer from Manchester fell for the receptionist who opened the door for him on his last-minute solo trip to Porto. “I’d booked the cheapest hostel. It was so run down I couldn’t even find the place and had to ask locals in very broken Portuguese. But when he finally arrived, he saw the receptionist and “felt chemistry with him right away”, he says. “I dropped subtle hints every time I popped hoping he’d notice and eventually plucked up the courage to ask him out on the last night because why not? I had nothing to lose. To my surprise, he actually said yes and offered to cook for me after his shift.” Together, they drank good wine as the receptionist made a delicious soup at his place. “I remember it being winter and they didn’t have heaters, so he wrapped a blanket around me. We cuddled and kissed, but didn’t do anything more.“It was such a perfect end to a holiday, I’ll never forget it,” says Andrew. “Sadly, I never stayed in touch with my Portuguese receptionist. I had moved on to Lisbon before returning home and he only spoke about three words of English.”‘I knew I’d met the actual love of my life’Olivia Mushigo, 23, a PR manager from London, was travelling around Thailand with her friends when she met a Swedish Iraqi DJ on a night out on the island of Koh Phi Phi – and knew it was love at first sight.“He was performing at the club we were in and I loved his confidence. I told my friend I was taking him home with me – obviously as banter. She then went up to him and to my surprise, he came up to me. I don’t know what magic words she said, but we got talking and all moved on to another club with his friends.“The next day we went on a date, we went to a restaurant and had a motorcycle ride around the island. It was the first time I was on a motorcycle but he was really good at calming me down. He was such a gentleman and did little things like holding the door open and pulled out my chair.” Despite the strength of feeling, the romance ultimately didn’t stay the course. “He was a bit older than me and sadly it didn’t go any further,” says Mushigo, with a sigh. “A friendship would’ve been nice – he was so easy to talk to. If it wasn’t for the distance, we’d definitely still be together.” Related... 'Happy, Loved, Free': How We Make Our Open Relationships Work I Tried Sex In A Park During Lockdown.

WeWork pulled its IPO in 2019 after mulling a massive valuation cut to drum up investor interest, and cofounder Adam Neumann was ousted as CEO and chairman. Real-estate veteran Sandeep Mathrani started as CEO in February. WeWork Chairman Marcelo Claure told the Financial Times earlier this month that the company was on track to be cash-flow positive in 2021, thanks to aggressive cost cutting and a boost in demand from companies seeking flexible office arrangements because of the pandemic.  Meanwhile, WeWork is now awash in vacancy in New York City, its biggest market, according to marketing materials seen by Business Insider.  The flexible-workspace giant, which has almost 9 million square feet of office space in the city and is its largest office tenant by a wide margin, has nearly 1.9 million square feet of available space, over 20% of its portfolio. We've also reported that Wells Fargo is not renewing its lease in a 750-person WeWork space in Charlotte, N.C.

The coronavirus crisis has disrupted nearly every part of corporate life, including how software teams conduct — and communicate about — their work.  The change has spurred engineering managers from Asana, Atlassian, GitHub, Jellyfish, and DigitalOcean to craft a set of best practices that work for their teams, especially as remote work becomes a longer term trend. Engineering managers say it's important to find ways to measure projects against business goals, write down everything, have one-on-one meetings with employees, and set a culture of work-life balance. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. When the productivity software company Asana moved to remote work in March, one of the first things managers talked about was how to remotely hold stand-up meetings, where engineers update their teams about the progress of their work. "It's important to make sure our work is aligned," one of the engineering managers involved in those meetings, Kate Reading, told Business Insider. "Ultimately, as a manager, one of my most important jobs is keeping my team supported." The coronavirus crisis has disrupted nearly every part of corporate life, including how software teams conduct — and communicate about — their work. The change has forced engineering managers to craft a set of best practices that work for their teams, especially as remote work becomes a longer term trend. We asked managers from five different productivity companies for their advice on how to help their remote reports flourish. Here's what they told us:  Find ways to measure projects against business goals  As the coronavirus pandemic wreaks havoc on the economy and company financials (even for enterprise tech), it's more important than ever for engineers to prioritize projects that are helping their company meet its business goals.  The first step is to find ways to measure what the team is doing and how productive it's being, says Andrew Lau, CEO and cofounder of engineering management software startup Jellyfish. Engineering leaders tend to overestimate the amount of time their teams can dedicate to building new products: A report from Jellyfish found that while leaders estimate that 59% of a team's time can be devoted to building, the average team can only dedicate 36% of their day, with customer support and maintenance take up large quantities of time.  The pandemic only makes that more difficult because visibility into people's work is even more limited. "You can't walk around and ask what people are working on," Evan Klein, director of product marketing at Jellyfish, told Business Insider. "When [managers] can't do that in a remote setting, there's a big disconnect. It's very hard to understand what's actually going on, which is why that gap in knowledge exists." Lau recommends using digital tools like Atlassian's Jira and Microsoft's GitHub to track what people are working on and prioritize projects if resources are scarce.  Read more: Startup Jellyfish just raised $12 million in funding to help managers solve the 'last black box' of understanding how their engineering teams are working "[Managers] historically didn't measure their teams to understand how we're aligned with the business," Lau told Business Insider. "In a remote environment we have to. Folks that are doing so are learning quickly why that's important." Adopt a 'written culture' for your team It's important to make sure teammates keep everyone updated on their working on, which can be done via online collaboration tools like Asana, GitHub, and Atlassian's Jira, Trello, and Confluence. Asana's Reading, for example, tracks what her reports are doing by meeting with her entire team as a group once a week, creating an agenda in Asana that will track action items and having employees provide status updates.  "The little details — writing down what you discuss and making it accessible to everyone on the team — has been helpful for alignment," Reading said. While managers can use whatever tools they want, Reading recommends researching the boundaries and capabilities of a tool before committing. "You can end up in situations where you can't solve a problem because of a problem with tools," Reading said. Like Atlassian, GitHub also tends to use its own tools for various tasks. Even before the pandemic, GitHub was already remote-first, which led to its "written culture," where employees write down everything, says Dana Lawson, vice president of engineering at GitHub. That makes managing a team remotely much easier, she says. Workers communicate with their colleagues using GitHub's platform, noting what they're working on and how. "When you're working remotely, you're challenged with time zones, information flow, and trying to keep people aligned, especially in these unprecedented times," Lawson told Business Insider. Managers say it's important to keep having one-on-one meetings with employees Engineering managers say they stay in contact with remote employees through chat and video conferencing tools like Slack, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet. Alexis Bruemmer, a senior engineering manager at DigitalOcean who has been managing remotely for almost a decade, said that she frequently uses videoconferencing to talk through problems with her employees. It's important to ensure that the team has a safe place to communicate, she said.  "Some things require special attention given that you don't have day-to-day interactions," Bruemmer told Business Insider. "Things that are critical for me are making sure we have active time for the team to talk about blockers, problems that they're facing, channels for folks to get help. We leverage a lot of dynamic chat for that." Likewise, Reading started doing more video calls to discuss problems face-to-face during the pandemic. It's been especially important to continue having one-on-one meetings, she said, especially because employees may have to balance other parts of their personal lives, like parenting. To lock in time for this, she uses a smart calendar assistant called Clockwise.  Atlassian has actually dialed up its number of internal all-hands meetings as well during the pandemic, and there has been a large uptick in participation, too, says Stephen Deasy, head of cloud engineering at Atlassian. For interaction-starved employees, it can be a nice way to feel part of a larger team.  He also recommends specifying certain time windows during the day when everyone is expected to be online together to perform a task like review code.  "The biggest thing is setting expectations and making that clear and well understood, caring for the team so they know what to expect as individuals," Deasy told Business Insider. "As you manage your team, be more intentional on the communication stuff." Setting a culture of work-life balance When teams went remote, managers had to make sure employees' safety concerns were addressed and that they had the right equipment.  Managers say it's important to remember that it's an unusual time that can be stressful to employees, whether because they're taking care of children or older family members, or because the news cycle can be overwhelming or distressing. While some workers may like remote work, others may be missing going into an office.  "By now everyone has a rhythm," Atlassian's Deasy said. "But now they're feeling the long term effect of more isolation." Atlassian rolled out internal training for managers on how to keep their team, and it has team building events for employees, like meditation or bingo. Deasy also suggests conducting internal surveys to find out what employees are concerned about, even months into the pandemic. "Managers need to realize everyone's affected differently right now," Lawson said. "We shouldn't take it for granted how people are feeling." Managers should set a culture of work life balance, like by taking lunch breaks and setting boundaries, as they encourage their workers to do the same.  "People need support right now," Lawson added. "Be authentic, be vulnerable, don't overthink it." Got a tip? Contact this reporter via email at [email protected], Signal at 646.376.6106, Telegram at @rosaliechan, or Twitter DM at @rosaliechan17.

Grime artist Wiley has been dropped by his management company over accusations of anti-Semitism.The musician’s manager John Woolf said A-List Management had “cut all ties” with the musician following a series of social media posts made on accounts belonging to him on Friday.The Campaign Against Antisemitism has asked police to investigate the content and called for Wiley’s accounts to be shut down “to prevent further outpouring of anti-Jewish venom”.Mr Woolf, who is Jewish, wrote on Twitter on Saturday morning: “Following Wileys anti semitic tweets today we at @A_ListMGMT have cut all ties with him. There is no place in society for antisemitism.”He had earlier said he did not support or condone what Wiley posted but that he would speak to him privately and “help educate him”.Following Wileys anti semitic tweets today we at @A_ListMGMT have cut all ties with him. There is no place in society for antisemitism.— John Woolf (@Jrwoolfw) July 24, 2020One post on an unverified Twitter account in Wiley’s name, which Mr Woolf confirmed to the PA news agency belongs to the star, read: “I would challenge the whole world of Jewish community on my own I am not scared I can handle them.”The musician has since been given a temporary ban from Twitter. Wiley posted a screenshot on Instagram on Saturday morning, showing he had been given a temporary Twitter ban but will be allowed back into his account later this morning.However, the social media platform has been accused of “ignoring anti-semitism” because his tweets are still visible 12 hours after they were first posted.Wiley, known as the Godfather of Grime and whose real name is Richard Cowie, received an MBE for services to music in 2018.Mr Woolf earlier said in the 12 years in which he had worked with Wiley he “can say that he is not anti-Semitic”.The manager wrote on Twitter that he does not “support or condone what Wiley has said today online in anyway shape or form”.He added: “We are going to help educate him here on this.”In a statement issued on Friday, a spokesperson for the Campaign Against Antisemitism said: “Our Crime Unit has reported this matter to the Metropolitan Police Service as we consider that Wiley has committed the offence of incitement to racial hatred, which can carry a substantial prison sentence.“We have additionally asked Twitter and Facebook, which owns Instagram, to close down his accounts which have hundreds of thousands of followers, to prevent further outpouring of anti-Jewish venom.”They added that they would be contacting the Cabinet Office to ask that Wiley’s MBE is revoked.

Goldman Sachs exec Ram Sundaram has solidified his position as a senior leader in the firm's mighty markets division. Sundaram, named sole head of the currencies and emerging-markets team last month, is also responsible for a structured credit group known for much of its history as Principal Funding and Investments. Dakin Campbell took a look at why the elevation of Sundaram — and what some see as his eat-what-you-kill Wall Street mentality — came as somewhat of a surprise to insiders who see Goldman marketing itself as a kinder, gentler investment bank.  You can read the full story here:  Inside the rise of Ram Sundaram, the leader of a secretive Goldman Sachs desk that's minting billions by designing some of the bank's most imaginative — and controversial — trades.  Alex Morrell was breaking news left and right on trader moves this week.

From Brexit to a global pandemic and the rebirth of a civil rights movement, Boris Johnson’s first year as prime minister has been uniquely tumultuous. And it has coincided with a series of events that exposed just how the deep the lines of racial injustice lie across the country. Simon Woolley, founder of Operation Black Vote, told HuffPost UK: “Historians will look at back on 2020 and ask but one question: how did our national leader react to this perfect storm that laid bare deep-seated racial inequalities as never before?“The devastating impact that Covid-19 has had on BAME communities, along with the death of George Floyd and Black Lives Matter, demands our prime minister lay out a race equality strategy now.”Before taking office, Johnson already had a worrying track record on race, referring to Black people as “piccaninnies” with “watermelon smiles”. Prior to last year’s general election, many Black people told HuffPost UK they were fearful about Johnson re-entering Number 10.A year on, what do they make of his time in office so far? These are the key moments that show how Boris Johnson has responded to major tests in race relations. ‘Perilous for ethnic minorities’“Boris Johnson cannot deny that he has presided over a period where the denial of the existence of stark, overt racism in the NHS has cost lives of people who are simply working to support those who are sick and vulnerable.“These are the words of a senior NHS manager, who has asked to remain anonymous. “The lack of PPE and the sacrifice of [Black, Asian and minority ethnic] staff in the Covid-19 pandemic will forever characterise the reign of Boris Johnson and evidence that he and the government – which has led us on a merry dance of death – have blood on their hands.“If the racial inequalities [in society] that were known about had been addressed, then the disproportionate impact would not have been so stark.”There have so far been more than 56,000 deaths registered in the UK where Covid-19 is mentioned on the death certificate.NHS England data for the first 12,600 deaths from the virus revealed that Black people were dying from the virus at almost twice the rate of their proportion of the population.Following public pressure, the government eventually asked Public Health England (PHE) to conduct in a review into the disparities of risks and outcomes of Covid-19.Former equalities chief Trevor Phillips was appointed to assist with this review, sparking widespread criticism from BAME communities – many branded the move “shameful” and “alarming” given Phillips’ suspension from the Labour Party over Islamophobia allegations and previous offensive comments on race.Phillips and Professor Richard Webber – who together run specialist research company Webber Phillips – were asked by Public Health England (PHE) to provide expert support to an inquiry into why such high numbers of victims of the coronavirus pandemic were from BAME backgrounds.When the review was eventually published in June, it simply confirmed what many had known for weeks prior: Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people are more likely to die of coronavirus than their white counterparts.The data was published late with ministers under pressure amid reports it was delayed due to the Black Lives Matter protests.People in deprived areas “may” be more at risk of infection because they live closer together, or because they live in places that contain a higher proportion of workers in jobs more likely to be exposed to the virus, the report said.Indeed, public sector staff such as bus drivers and NHS workers – many of whom are from BAME communities – told HuffPost UK that felt disregarded as UK authorities battled to contain the Covid-19 outbreak, as they were forced to work without adequate PPE.Windrush generation nurses also gave their opinion on being asked to fight the battle against Covid-19 after the travesty of the scandal.More than half of pregnant women who were admitted to hospital with coronavirus in the UK were from a Black and minority ethnic background, prompting campaigners to demand greater protection for pregnant mothers from these communities.Reflecting on the past year of Johnson’s government, Nels Abbey – author ofThink Like A White Man: A Satirical Guide to Conquering The World...While Black – told HuffPost UK: “The first year of Boris Johnson’s leadership has proven perilous for ethnic minorities, especially Black people. And sadly, given Johnson’s highly successful – and largely unchallenged – relationship with racism, things are not going to change any time soon.“His response to ethnic minorities dying in disproportionate numbers from Covid-19? Appoint a despised, discredited and unqualified, yet ideologically compliant, Black man to lead the review.“His response to the murder of George Floyd? Exactly the same as his response to Covid-19.”Abbey said that, in his opinion: “From journalist to editor, mayor of London to leading Brexiteer, to foreign secretary to prime minister, racism has served as the oxygen of Boris Johnson’s career. Without it he would not be where he is now.”He added: “From the moment he announced his candidacy he went straight for the racism card. In his first campaign video, he proactively offered a white male he is speaking to on the doorstep ‘more stop and search’. The dog whistle was heard loud and clear.” New race commissionFollowing the death of George Floyd, a Black man who was murdered by US police, a wave of Black Lives Matter protests took place in London across July.These demonstrations were in solidarity with the US, and also called for systemic racism to be tackled in Britain.In response, the government announced it would form an independent Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities.Munira Mirza, the current head of the No.10 policy unit, led the commission’s formation.This sparked concern in light of the fact Mirza had previously cast doubt on the existence of institutional racism and condemned previous inquiries for fostering a “culture of grievance”.Yesterday I chaired the first meeting of our new Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities. Thank you to all the members - I hope this will really make the difference that we need right now. pic.twitter.com/aQ20l97sMT— Boris Johnson #StayAlert (@BorisJohnson) July 22, 2020The commission will aim to report its findings on the priority areas of health, education, criminal justice and employment by the end of this year.Some have questioned how this commission differs from the Race Disparity Unit, established by Theresa May in 2017 to tackle systemic inequalities in BritainHuffPost UK has sought clarification from Downing Street but has not received a response.Johnson chaired the commission’s first meeting on Monday, where he said: “We cannot go on like this. We do need to make progress. [...] There’s an alternative story to be told – there’s an alternative narrative about success, achievement, championing lots of positive things that needs to be told in addition to some of the obstacles that unquestionably exist.”The commission will be chaired by Dr Tony Sewell, an international education consultant who is head of the charity Generating Genius. It works to ensure talented students from disadvantaged and diverse ethnic backgrounds are positioned to excel in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) careers.Sewell, who worked with the prime minister in 2013 when he was mayor of London, has previously described any evidence of institutional racism as “flimsy” – and concerns have been raised regarding his suitability for the role. In an interview with The Times newspaper last year, the former teacher suggested the root cause of knife crime and gang culture among Black youths was absent fathers, citing figures showing about 50% of Black children grow up without a father. Some fun facts about Tony Sewell who will be heading the govt's race disparity commission: Sewell believes that black single mothers don't have the "strong arm" to raise boys; school lessons are too "feminised" for boys and African-caribbean "youth culture" is "anti-intellectual" https://t.co/XWQHSoIdyX— Dr Zubaida Haque (@Zubhaque) July 16, 2020Responding to Sewell’s appointment, Dr Zubaida Haque, interim director of the Runnymede Trust, tweeted a 2019 clip of Sewell appearing on Channel 5 News.Sewell will be joined by nine others in the group, comprised of representatives from the fields of science, education, broadcasting, economics, medicine, policing and community organising. They will look to deliver a report on race disparity within the health, education, criminal justice and employment sectors by the end of this year.This includes equalities minister Kemi Badenoch, who recently rejected claims “systemic injustice” is the reason ethnic minorities are more likely to die from coronavirus in England – sparking criticism when findings of the PHE review appear to suggest otherwise.These have prompted doubts around her role, too, in the government’s new race commission. HuffPost UK has put these concerns to Downing Street but has not received a reply.National lockdownBlack and Asian people were disproportionately fined under the Coronavirus Act, HuffPost UK revealed in May.Out of 13,445 contraventions where the individual issued with the notice had a self-identified ethnicity recorded, 5% of recipients issued with fines were Black, according to National Police Chiefs’ Council data. Black people only account for 3% of the England and Wales population.Analysis by the Guardian last month confirmed Metropolitan Police officers enforcing the coronavirus lockdown were more than twice as likely to issue fines to Black people as white people.This renewed concerns about the Black people being over-policed in the UK yet under-protected from the pandemic.Meanwhile, researchers found BAME people in Britain had been hit harder by job losses during the coronavirus crisis than the population as a whole, Reuters reported. And data from the Fawcett Society and West Midlands Women’s Voice found BAME women in the West Midlands and Greater Manchester were more likely than white women to have taken a pay cut because of the pandemic.As of July 19, 2020, approximately 9.5m jobs, from 1.2m different employers were furloughed in the UK as part of the government’s job retention scheme.The scheme, introduced in response to the economic damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic, covers 80% of an employee’s usual monthly wage, up to £2,500 a month.In a column for The Voice newspaper, broadcaster Dotun Adebayo wrote: “When the furlough scheme ends, it will be black workers that will suffer the most.” Angela Phillips, a Black woman who worked in the media on a fixed term contract, was furloughed in May before being dismissed four weeks ago – just prior to easing of the lockdown.Reflecting on Johnson’s first year, she told HuffPost UK: “I believe Boris Johnson has bumbled his way through his first year and all the credit for recent measures of support should go to Rishi Sunak. “His bumbling on Brexit, his refusal to bend the knee in support of Black lives when he is known for his clapping for the NHS and other gestures [...] plus his flip-flopping and stuttering are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to assessing Boris Johnson.”Public sector workers on the front line of dealing with the coronavirus pandemic will be given a pay rise, the chancellor announced this week.Doctors, teachers and police officers are among those who will see extra money in their pay packet after a testing few months since Covid-19 hit the UK.But social care workers, who have also been at the forefront of the battle at the deadly virus, are not part of the group being given an increased wage.Woolley of Operation Black Vote is calling upon the PM to prioritise tackling race inequalities. “Implementing the recommendations from previous race reviews is the lowest hanging fruit,” he said. “Having a strategic plan that ensures BAME communities do not have another hit as we enter an unprecedented economic downturn is the role of our leader, the prime minister Boris Johnson.”Angelo Irving, a London-based comedian, portrays a Black version of Boris Johnson in popular online sketches as means of raising awareness around sociopolitical concerns through satire.  A #metpolice officer caught kneeling on a black man's neck? #BlackBoris speaks about his superb relationship with the BAMEs. #BlackLivesMatterpic.twitter.com/y5Lkk0k4dU— Black Boris (@Angelo3000k) July 18, 2020Reflecting on Johnson’s year, he expressed disappointment.“By any objective measure, Johnson’s tenure has been a failure. He is the exact wrong prime minister for this moment. The things that he is good at – soundbites, bluster, ingratiating himself and presenting himself as a loveable buffoon to conceal the nastiness underneath – are absolutely not enough to meet the moment that we are in. “Where he would normally be just a bad premier like the two previous ones, his premiership has been singularly awful for ethnic minorities. In my opinion, his defence of his adviser Dominic Cummings broke this country, which had followed the rules and saw them flagrantly flouted by someone who had drawn them up.“Johnson has been a failure and no soundbite or sycophantic cheering by Tory MPs at PMQs will change that. His government has been awful when it comes to acknowledging, let alone tackling, racial inequalities in 2020. “The fact that the report had to be leaked before it was released and that there are claims that a section of that report said that discrimination played a part in the increased number of deaths ‘did not survive contact with Matt Hancock’s office’ all serves to paint a picture of a government that wants to do the minimum when it comes to tackling racial inequality.“This has also been seen with government responses to #BlackLivesMatter. Whether it was the painful interview with Matt Hancock on Sky – where, when asked how many Black members Boris Johnson had in his cabinet, he talked of ‘diversity’ and ‘BAME’ as a feeble attempt to deflect from the truth – or Johnson’s speech where he acknowledged the ‘incontrovertible, undeniable feeling of injustice’, whilst at the same time praising peaceful protest but threatening those that protested in a violent way, it is clear again that Johnson doesn’t have the desire for any real change. “Johnson claims that we are right to say that Black lives matter, but says nothing about the fact that between March and May during lockdown a quarter of all black males aged 15 to 24 were stopped and searched in London.“Covid has served to shine a light on the inequalities in the health system, policing and race relations. Johnson’s peculiar habit of leading from the back, in particular leaking policy days before announcing it, has led to a confusion on the rules and a leadership vacuum.“He is a failure for the whole country and a ruinous failure for ethnic minorities. I shudder at the thought of four more years of this. As to the new race commission, it is amazing how often they find black faces that will sit comfortably within their ideological sphere.”WindrushOf course, one of the greatest stains on the Conservative’s government’s conscience is the anguish caused by the Windrush scandal.Paulette Wilson, a Windrush campaigner who was left destitute while fighting for her rights as a British citizen, died unexpectedly age 64 on Thursday, sparking grief and renewed anger at the injustices that she – and others – faced.Wilson, a former chef, died while still selflessly campaigning for justice for Windrush victims.It emerged in July that the government had asked victims to prove their case “beyond reasonable doubt” before being given compensation.It is the same level of proof required to convict defendants in criminal courts across the UK. Immigration lawyer Jacqueline McKenzie told HuffPost UK that as compensation claims are civil cases, the burden of proof should be “on the balance of probabilities”.The compensation scheme has been criticised over its slow progress in offering payouts to those wrongly told they no longer had a right to be in the UK. At least 83 victims with the right to live in the country have been deported.By the end of March, 1,275 people had applied under the scheme. But to date, just 60 people have received compensation through the scheme, which was launched more than a year ago, with £362,996 paid out to them. Some estimates suggest the total fund could be between £200m and £500m.A Downing Street spokesperson told HuffPost UK: “The prime minister is proud to lead the most diverse ministerial team in this country’s history. He campaigned on a commitment to level up across the nation and has repeatedly made clear that there is no place for racism in our country.“The government continues to take action to address the disparities that exist across society, including implementing recommendations from reviews that we have agreed to take forward.”Related...

(NewsUSA) – Before you open your pool for the season or whenever you close it down, you should be aware of a hidden danger.When swimmers come into contact with this “leaked” electrical current in your pool, it can cause loss of muscle control, rapid or irregular heartbeat or even electric shock drowning (ESD).Electrical shock drowning can occur in treated water.Many pools and spas now feature lighting, digital entertainment systems, automated sensors for maintenance, and other integrated comforts or technologies.The presence of these devices in and around water can increase the risk of injury.Mild tingling sensations and numbness in the limbs or extremities are the first telltale symptoms of ESD.”Electricity is extremely dangerous in water and improperly installed, maintained or damaged electrical connectivity can leak electrical current,” says Grayling Love, product line manager at Eaton.“Help protect yourself and your loved ones from ESD by having all electrical equipment used at the pool or spa installed, inspected and regularly maintained by certified electrical contractors who can help you meet the latest electrical codes and standards.”Electric shock drowning cases have been known to result from electrical current leakages originating from faulty wiring or failing electrical distribution equipment.The use of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) and Equipment Leakage Circuit Interrupters (ELCIs) near the pool, hot tub or wet spa can significantly help reduce the risk of electric shock drowning while helping water facilities meet electrical codes and safety standards.

Alternative data is an increasingly important part of hedge funds' investment processes, but the pandemic has changed the way firms use the info. Traditionally, quants and long-term stock-pickers use data to compare companies against each other, to find a winner in a certain field. The virus, however, has the entire world waiting on a restart — and it has turned just about every money manager into a macro investor, constantly thinking about the big picture. "Everybody's a macro trader now," says Abraham Thomas, chief data officer at Nasdaq's Quandl. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. At the beginning of the pandemic, the market fell with each new update on infection numbers — and alternative data firms were quick to roll out new indices and markers to track the virus. But the markets have become steadily disconnected with the virus, as the S&P 500 has nearly climbed to the heights it hit in February, and hedge funds trying to make sense of it all have had to rethink the way they use their alt data. For starters, tracking the virus and trying to correlate it to the markets "wasn't working," said Zak Selbert, founder of Indexica, which uses natural-language processing software to create indices around specific emotions based on news stories.  "I think that shift from tangible to feelings has happened," Selbert said about the markets' reaction to the virus. His firm found that the general public has been steadily consuming less news about the virus, meaning the drivers of the economy — consumers — weren't hanging on every new data point from officials about the spread.

"Historically, most the users of alternative data use it to compare one company to another — the reality of 2020 is investors don't really care about that," he said. "Everybody is much more interested in the big picture." Auto sales, tracked through new insurance policies processed, is an example of a dataset that's being reimagined. It used to be a way for portfolio managers to see if GM was outperforming Ford. Now, it's used to get a gauge on consumer sentiment on the economy. "It's no longer about picking the right stock, it's about picking the right time to buy every stock," Thomas said. "Everybody's a macro trader now." Macro funds, after years of underperformance thanks to low interest rates and nonexistent market volatility, have come roaring back thanks to the pandemic, with managers like Brevan Howard enjoying the spoils.  See more: Goldman Sachs quants overseeing $200 billion rolled out a new model for handling COVID-19 risk way back in January. 2 exec walked us through how it works, and how they've fine-tuned it amid market madness. The key is to keep things simple, according to Daryl Smith, head of research for Neudata, a London-based data platform. Take, for example the "geolocation renaissance." This data uses footfall traffic from cell phones to show how many people are in public areas at certain times, and for how long. Prior to the pandemic, geolocation data feeds were trying to nail down specific buying patterns and how they related to certain brands. Now, it's used just to see if people are coming back and shopping again. "The use cases have become a hell of a lot more simplistic," Smith said. "The data that are in vogue at the moment are those with the most simplistic use cases." Read more: Credit-card data is broken.

The IT demand is high, while the supply is relatively low in this field, which means anyone with a software development skill set often has their choice of companies to work for. Offering a large base of training and a team to have around them are also great ways to catch the eye of someone looking to switch jobs. When posting a job or attending job fairs to find new employees, managers should pay particular attention to how they explain their company values and ethics – these are things that potential employees will want to identify with directly. Once it is time to interview the person, focusing on how the company can allow the potential employee to grow is a great point of view the interviewer should take. Keeping the Talent You Have   As a manager or CEO of a company, you want to retain all the good talent you have in the organization. For one thing, companies should do everything they can to make the jobs of software developers easier – like providing updated technology and code bases that are up to date with company projects.

Sign up to the Life newsletter for daily tips, advice, how-tos and escapism.When people living in England head to the shops from Friday, they’ll be told to wear a face mask or risk being turned away. And for some, this news brings with it a lot of anxiety.While people with physical or mental illnesses or disabilities are exempt from wearing face covers, they still fear being shamed by members of the public or shop workers for not wearing one. Nicola Little, 27, has asthma and anxiety, and finds it difficult to breathe when wearing a face cover. While she’s considered exempt from having to wear a face covering because of her health, she worries about being shamed when out in public because her illness is invisible.Little, who lives in Stevenage with her partner and young daughter, wore a face cover on the bus when they were first made mandatory on public transport  back in June because she was too scared to tell the bus driver she had asthma.But when she put on the mask, Little, who is also prone to panic attacks, started to feel the familiar rise of anxiety. “I start panicking, I get anxious, I’m hot and stuffy. It just makes you feel really restricted,” she tells HuffPost UK.She has since told bus drivers she has asthma, and was given a downloadable exemption card from Asthma UK to show anyone who might question her for not wearing one, but she still feels guilty as well as anxious about being shamed by strangers.Little says she feels “scared” about masks becoming mandatory in shops and worries she’s going to have to revert to online shopping to avoid being called out for not wearing one.“I don’t think I’d be able to do a food shop with a face mask on the whole time,” she says. “I’ll have to start shopping online again, which I don’t really want to do because I enjoy going to the shops – it’s good for the mental health as well.”The 27-year-old, who works in a primary school, wishes there was a badge people could wear to show they are exempt from mask-wearing, a bit like ‘baby on board’ badges for pregnant women. “I definitely think we should have something like that,” she says, “because then you haven’t got to keep getting your phone out or a piece of paper, you can just wear it on your jumper and nobody will say anything to you.”Related... Can't Wear A Face Mask For Health Reasons? Carry This Card Instead Fazilet Hadi, a policy manager at Disability Rights UK, told PA Media she has already heard several stories of people being confronted on public transport, despite having legitimate reasons for not wearing a mask.While some charities have created exemption cards to explain why a mask is not being worn, Hadi believes there needs to be government advertising as well to make people truly aware.“We heard horrific stories from the disability hate crime network about disabled people who’ve already been challenged on public transport,” she said. “We really urge the public to be kind and assume that the people around them aren’t wearing it for a reason.”A government spokesperson said the guidance is “absolutely clear” that you do not need to wear a face covering if you have a legitimate reason not to, including because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability.“We expect people to be sensitive to the fact that some groups of people are not able to wear a face covering, and will continue to communicate this message to the general public,” the spokesperson told PA Media.But whether that’s enough only time will tell. Sarah MacFadyen, head of policy at Asthma UK and the British Lung Foundation, told HuffPost UK: “We need a greater awareness that there are exemptions from the rules on face coverings, and this includes people with severe respiratory conditions. Most people will be able to wear a face covering with no problem, but some people find that wearing a mask makes them feel like they can’t breathe. “As face coverings become mandatory in shops in England, we urge the public to think twice before they judge someone for not wearing a face mask.“Not all health conditions are visible and people with lung conditions have already told us that they’ve been publicly confronted by strangers about not wearing one, leaving them feeling anxious and humiliated.”Related... 5 Powerful Mental Health Photos And The Stories Behind Them Should Face Masks Be Mandatory At Work?

One of your most crucial tasks as a leader is teaching your people to think and ask the right questions.Outlined below are what may be keeping you from reaching your goals and how to conquer them.Overcoming Common Delegation Barriers1 – A Desire to Perform Tasks PersonallyIn some cases, you might wish to complete all the responsibilities on your own as you may be in a better position to handle the work, time-wise or quality-wise.Also, you might just enjoy that specific job despite your already packed schedule.You’ll have time to do things that only a manager should do, like speaking with VIP clients.Besides that, you need to take a breather every now and again too, so leave what can be consigned to your team.2 – A High Level of InsecurityWhen you feel that your workers are more skilled than you are, you may sometimes avoid delegating.You might fear that your position will be in danger as your inabilities might be exposed.Besides, who wants to be compared with a staff member whose skill in a certain area outshines your own?Suggestion: Be Happy as a MentorRather than think of them as competition, treat them as a disciple.Remember that you’re on the same team and that you’re aiming for the same things.Raise them to become the best versions of themselves and consider it a victory when they do because it means you taught them well.3 – A Lack of Confidence in SubordinatesYou may not want to risk consigning crucial tasks because you don’t trust your team members to deliver.However, understand that humans tend to learn more when they make mistakes and have to find solutions to the problem by themselves.Don’t dump everything in their hands though, but do it slowly and start with the less critical tasks.4 – A Scarcity of Time to MentorBosses constantly look for ways on how to make the team more efficient at what they do because time is money.

But, quarantine/COVID has definitely made me realize that things can change and that I'm also capable of doing things I never knew I could! As a plus-size influencer I have various conversations with men and women about fat bodies, confidence, size discrimination and mental health. Which makes me wish I could be a psychiatrist or psychologist to continue helping those, who like me, deal with body issues that affect us emotionally and mentally."

I think I gravitate to storytelling in general, and I'd probably be working as a broadcast journalist, creating segments for some local affiliate of the network news. I'd still be writing copy, popping in front of the camera, interviewing other people to grab soundbytes of their POV — truly the same thing I do now. The only difference is as a YouTuber I work for myself. The manager of my channel (me) tells the producer (also, me) which stories to make, and the producer then contacts talent (again, me) to get in front of a camera (that I set up) and shoot something that will inevitably be edited (thank you for asking, I do that part too) and published on my little corner of the internet."  Maddie Cidlik: 244,000 YouTube subscribers "If I wasn't a YouTube creator, I would definitely be working in digital marketing for a fashion or beauty company.

The Spacestation, a creator-focused company that operates a variety of businesses in categories like talent management, esports, and influencer marketing, is launching a new TikTok content house in September.  The company is looking to spend between $5 and $8 million on a Los Angeles mansion where its new comedy collective, "Camp Sike," will produce content for platforms like YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok.  The Spacestation hopes that Camp Sike's comedy niche will serve as a differentiator when pitching to brands against other TikTok content groups that lean into dance challenges and lip-syncing trends for their videos. Subscribe to Business Insider's influencer newsletter: Influencer Dashboard. The creator-focused media company The Spacestation is currently shopping for a $5 to $8 million mansion in Los Angeles.  Its plan — which has been continually delayed due to restrictions tied to the coronavirus pandemic — is to move six recently signed TikTok stars into a mansion in September in order to launch a new creator group focused on humor. "This collective is a comedy collective," said Jaxon Cooper, a talent manager and producer at Spacestation Integrations, a division of The Spacestation focused on managing creators and coordinating brand deals. "It's sketch comedy. It's written out, whether it's dialogue or monologues." TikTok is just a launching-off point for Spacestation's comedian group It may seem like an inopportune time to invest millions of dollars in a content house for a group of digital stars whose biggest audiences are on an app that politicians are considering banning in the US. But TikTok has also exploded in popularity in recent months, with its trends spilling over onto Instagram, YouTube, and TV shows like Saturday Night Live. The app set a global downloads record in the first quarter, and based on data from a sample of Android users, the analytics firm SimilarWeb estimates TikTok's number of daily active users in the US is up 8.3% this month from June. Still, Spacestation Integrations is hedging its bets by focusing on a variety of social platforms for its new comedy collective, which is going by the name "Camp Sike" and will operate within a yet-to-be-announced company division called Satellite Studios. The collective is already working on a scripted series for YouTube (Spacestation hired a writer to help script and direct) and plans to diversify across a variety of platforms and mediums, including podcasting. The collective's managers know TikTok's moment could be fleeting — as was the case for the short-form video app Vine — and they've planned for a possible demise. "We saw these guys and we were like, 'These are the next David Dobrik and Vlog Squad,'" said Spencer Lowder, who works alongside Cooper as a talent manager and producer at Spacestation Integrations. "If you look at them and see what happened, Vine was essentially a funnel for them. Vine was basically put to rest and disbanded, but it funneled all that attention [for them] into these other social-media platforms." Dobrik quickly rose to fame on YouTube and more recently, TikTok, after being a Vine star. Jack Innanen, one of Camp Sike's founding members who has around 2 million followers on TikTok, said the team has aspirations to eventually pitch comedy shows to traditional media companies and streaming platforms.  "[We'll] continue doing our individual videos and the way that we create on TikTok, and then come together and really take over TikTok as a collective, and then transition that to YouTube," Innanen said. "[We're] working on higher production content to be produced and then sold or shopped around." Camp Sike is focused on comedy — not dancing Camp Sike is one of several TikTok groups that have chosen to bunk together in Los Angeles this year in order to collaborate on content and score brand deals. Two creator groups, The Hype House and Sway LA, made splashy entrances into the city at the start of this year. And a series of upstart TikTok collectives like Clubhouse, Drip Crib, and Girls in the Valley have recently made moves into the city to try to capitalize on TikTok fame. The collab house model has a long history among YouTubers and Vine stars like Logan Paul, who moved into an apartment complex in 2014 with other top Vine creators on the aptly named Vine Street. Content houses offer creators the opportunity to cross-promote each other's accounts and create videos with other influencers passing through (when shelter-in-place policies are lifted). Camp Sike also isn't the first content house that The Spacestation has launched. The company's gaming division, Spacestation Gaming, previously opened collab houses for its esports players in cities like Atlanta and Las Vegas. But Spacestation's decision to buy rather than rent a house for its Camp Sike talent — a seemingly much larger investment — is a departure from what other TikTok-focused management groups have done. For instance, TalentX Entertainment, a new talent management company that launched late last year, opted to rent rather than purchase a Bel Air mansion for six of its talent in January (naming it Sway LA). "This is planned to be a long term investment, so purchasing the home would prove more cost-effective than leasing for Spacestation and partners," said Lowder, who declined to share the names of other participating investors. Spacestation hopes that Camp Sike's comedy niche will serve as a differentiator when pitching to brands against other TikTok content groups that lean into dance challenges and lip-syncing trends for their videos.  "Dancing isn't always going to be the best way to present a product or service, whatever it is," Lowder said. "With comedians we're able to tell a story in a way that people find funny and relatable and they get something from it." "Everybody out there is focusing on a house," Cooper said. "The Hype House. The Clubhouse. Sway LA. It's all focused on a house, whereas our goal is this comedy collective and moving and driving them to really a place of presence in this new digital Hollywood space." How the group formed Before the Camp Sike project was formalized earlier this year, Spacestation Integrations had worked with the group's creators to secure brand deals for one-off campaigns as part of its influencer-marketing business. "We were working on a few campaigns with some of them, and they had actually all rented an Airbnb at Playlist Live in Florida," Cooper said, referring to the annual creator-fan event held in Orlando. "They had basically tested [living together] out, and were thinking about the idea of getting together. When we caught wind of that, it made absolute sense that we had to go down this road with them." Spacestation flew the group out to its headquarters in March to meet everyone in person before agreeing to manage the group full-time.  "Before we start investing in creators we want to know who they are and make sure we all vibe together," Lowder said. "After that initial introduction all the guys went home and the plan was to move to LA about a month or two after that, but because of the pandemic it really put things on hold." Camp Sike is currently 'collabing' in Utah until it's safe to move to Los Angeles While a move to LA was put on indefinite hold following the coronavirus outbreak, five of the group's members — Daniel Muthama, Grant Beene, Frankie Lagana, Asaf Rovny, Jericho Mencke — are currently living together in a house in Utah (The Spacestation is headquartered in Layton, Utah, a 25-minute drive from Salt Lake City). Innanen, who is based in Toronto, is waiting for travel restrictions between the US and Canada to lift before joining the group in-person. "We're taking the precautions of making sure everyone's social distancing," Cooper said. "When we go out to stores, throwing on masks. There's a mandate here in Salt Lake. It's required to wear a mask." The group is already working on making content together and helping to plan out each other's daily TikTok posts, Cooper said.  "Every day they'll wake up, sit down, and they'll help write ideas for one another's TikToks," he said. "They'll whiteboard everything. They'll do key points for a video, and some of them are scripted." The collective will eventually live rent-free in LA (with some supervision) When the six members of Camp Sike (all of whom are 18 years of age or older) do move to Los Angeles, they won't need to pay rent to live in the company's mansion. But they'll be joined by Spacestation's Cooper who plans to also move to the city to help make sure everything goes smoothly for Satellite Studios' first venture.  "With everyone moving out to LA, first time going out to California, we want there to be on-site management," Cooper said. "That will be me living out there making sure the house is in order and everything's being run well. We definitely don't want it to be any type of party house. It's a creator house. It's a production studio set." Living together in "collab" houses hasn't been without controversy for other TikTok stars this year. Members of the popular influencer group The Hype House have tussled over trademark disputes, and several residents of the TikTok house Sway LA recently left their Bel Air mansion shortly after two of the house's members were arrested on drug charges in Texas. Lowder said Camp Sike will have a production schedule to make sure the house stays on task. "There will be a schedule," he said. "Tuesday we will be [recording] the podcast. Thursday we will be filming the TV series. Even the guys came up to us and said we don't want to have crazy rager parties."
