State considering extending work from home after pandemic

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) – Many downtown Lansing office buildings are sitting empty as people continue to work from home.

The state is saving a lot of money by keeping its workers away. Now, it is considering keeping this arrangement beyond the pandemic.

The state said the pandemic has become a pilot program to see how state government can work remotely.

But the mayor and business owners say keeping the state’s workers home will hurt the downtown.

“They’ve got to bring them back. It’s not good for the state,” said Mathew Hunt, Summit Comics and Games store manager.

Hunt said not having the state employees in the office is really hurting downtown businesses.

“We need downtown to get busier. This used to be a happening downtown and it’s kinda dead,” said Hunt.

Most state workers have been working from home since the pandemic began nearly a year ago.

Rise of ‘Zoom-scaping’ sees sales of picture frames and wall art soar

Home workers are snapping up picture frames, art and plants to “Zoom-scape” their houses for work meetings.

John Lewis said sales of items popular with those looking for an attractive backdrop for calls on video-messaging service Zoom have soared compared to last year.

Since March, large numbers have been working from home because of the pandemic meaning that meetings have had to be conducted online on Zoom or Skype.

Sales of picture frames are 80 per cent higher than last year, art is up 113 per cent and mirrors have risen by 65 per cent, John Lewis said. Shoppers have also splashed out on attractive desk lamps, pushing sales up by 27 per cent, and plants.

Katherine Lemin, a wall decor buyer at the retailer, said: “With meetings happening mostly on video calls our walls have become our first impression. They are the way we ‘dress to impress’ now

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on confronting a “frightening” pandemic, and thoughts on his political future

The Executive Mansion in Albany, New York, has been home to, among others, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and, for the past nine years, Andrew Cuomo.

“Do you know, it’s a lovely home, but it’s not homey. Where’s the homey part?” asked “Sunday Morning” host Jane Pauley.

“There is no homey part,” said Governor Cuomo. “We live more on the second floor. It is a little more casual.”

And familiar. His father, Mario Cuomo, who died in 2015, was a three-term Governor of New York. “I can see him sitting right in that corner watching a ballgame, with the telephone,” said Andrew. “And he was never more than ten feet away from the telephone.”

Exton Home To State Department Of Health Bureau Of Laboratories

EXTON, PA — Chester County has been home to the State Bureau of Laboratories since 1977, and the state Department of Health laboratory in Exton is busy both with public health testing and in its role as a regulator of labs that serve the public.

The Exton home of Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Laboratories is about two and a half miles south of the PA Turnpike and operates Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. It employs 77 people, including contractors, laboratorians, security guards, and other state employees, according to Maggi Barton, Deputy Press Secretary for the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

The lab also ensures 24-hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week coverage for critical tests and response to public health emergencies, like the COVID-19 pandemic. “The state lab has worked tirelessly to ensure specimens have been tested and results are delivered in an efficient fashion,” Barton told Patch this week.

The bureau declined a

Prop. 19 Could Shake Up Residential Actual Estate

When it comes to taxes and household actual estate, Proposition 19 presents a give-and-take solution.

On just one hand, it could advantage owners around the age of 55 who want to go and consider their present-day property tax foundation with them. Prop. 19 would allow for older homeowners to do this up to a few periods and if they order a a lot more pricey household, they’d only fork out for the upward adjustment.
