Among the multitude of press releases I receive every day, this one caught my attention.

It read in part:

“A global pandemic, prolonged remote working and learning, a rapidly changing economy, a tense socio-political environment and growing mental health challenges due to the unprecedented situation and associated uncertainty have created an environment conducive to stress and burnout, ultimately leading to high turnover, lack of productivity and negative health effects.

At 54 words, this sentence was worthy of a New York Times lead. The association issuing this statement did so to publicize the workshops it will hold for its members. They will receive guidance on “effective steps we can take immediately as individuals and organizations to move forward on a positive trajectory.”

The issue of over-stressed or burnt-out employees arises as organizations bring people back to the office. In part, the return itself adds to the stress people are already feeling. I’ve commented before, for many the ride itself is a stressor. There’s also the uncertainty of what evil germs are emerging from your new co-worker’s persistent hacking.

There are few reliable statistics on burnout. The term itself doesn’t really have a defined definition. This apparently applied for the first time to healthcare providers, the same people who bore the brunt of the mass occurrences of COVID-19. Burnout is something people know when they see it or feel it.

At an informal government-industry meeting the other night in downtown DC, from the moderator’s desk, I asked the approximately 80 people present if they had recently experienced the burnout or if they knew people who were. I would say two-thirds of the hands were up.

My panel discussed how managers will manage the future of work. Mainly, the rules of yesteryear, i.e. pre-pandemic, have evaporated. People who used to be full-time office workers now have to deal with mixed working lives.

Burnout, I now think, can result from an accumulation of relatively small factors in the mix. For example, the dress code. At the downtown rally, people showed up dressed in everything from polo shirts to suits and ties. Flat shoes with open toes and high heels. In fact, beforehand, an exchange of emails between me, the panelists and the organizers discussed what to wear. My contribution was “no loincloths”.

One panelist, a well-dressed federal tech executive, said he donned the suit for the first time in two years, primarily because he had a meeting with an assistant secretary earlier in the day.

People regularly turn to t-shirts or hoodies, with the proverbial basketball shorts below. Does that make these clothes acceptable for the office two or three days a week? What if you show up in an open-necked shirt and slacks, but a colleague or boss shows up in a suit and tie or business dress? Or vice versa?

Working hours are also sources of stress. The Blackberry started cleaning up the business/personal line when it made email available 24/7. The pandemic has blurred the line even more. The IT manager said he’s started scheduling the emails he composes outside of 9-5 hours, so they won’t go out until the next morning – just so people don’t succumb to the feeling like they have to respond to emails at night or elsewhere.

Ironically, the commute tended to force people off work and back home, preventing meetings from dragging on — or starting at 5 p.m., especially if someone had to take that VRE train.

Another panelist, an IT manager in a large component of a large department, said the future of work will require much more attention to the human side of things, including mental health, given the proliferation of digital distractions. She also said it involved letting people have some wiggle room when it comes to when they work. Whether it’s the furnace or a sick child, we now know people will get the job done even if the hours get blurry.

My panelists also said leaders need to resist the expectation that people will be working all the time, simply because remote working and the technology that comes with it make it possible.

My take on that last point: sometimes something big happens and the work can stretch almost 24/7. I spoke to two Service to America Medalist finalists just yesterday. The State Department’s Holly Herrera and Hilary Ingraham, along with Kiera Berdinner, have created an entire branch to deal with the resettlement of refugees from Afghanistan. After the Taliban takeover, they started arriving at the rate of 3,000 a week. They said the branch was a “round-the-clock effort involving half a dozen other agencies.” Incredible work.

We’ve heard similar stories from agencies that had big, sudden tasks due to federal pandemic spending.

But people can only endure this for so long. An aircraft can maintain takeoff power for as long as it takes to reach altitude, but the engines will shut down prematurely unless the pilot returns the throttles to the cruise position. If you are a pilot, take care of your engines.

One more word. That aforementioned email cited the “tense socio-political environment.” The country is politically torn in two, the stock market is in crisis and there is no infant formula. Ukraine, the Supreme Court debate, the Buffalo supermarket shooting, damn it! None of these things are under a manager’s control, of course, but they add to the general level of anxiety. All the more reason to make work a refuge.

A word of advice: spend some time unsubscribing from mailing lists. In the media, we get everything. Including nasty emails from supporters of all persuasions. Everyone but the sender, they say, is extreme, anti-democracy, hateful blah blah blah. Often they want money. I delete them with extreme prejudice before opening them. The sheer volume of it can hurt the mind. Rather than cleaning it up, it is better to prevent it in the first place.

Almost useless factoid

Some of Spain’s most popular beaches are introducing tough new rules for tourists this summer.

The restrictions come as other countries ease their Covid-19 entry restrictions for travelers seeking an escape after two years of lockdown. Spain is also a popular holiday destination for Brits looking for affordable, sunny travel.

Travel restrictions to Spain have also been reduced to simply requiring proof of Covid-19 recovery, or the vaccination pass and NHS app QR code, but Britons looking to venturing to the islands for a beach vacation should be aware of changing certain habits to comply with new laws.

The new Spanish rules for tourists

Spain imposed rules on tourists visiting their beaches after the pandemic. The tough new rules mean you can be fined for doing the following:

  • smoke on the beach
  • light a barbecue on the beach
  • walking naked and wearing exposed clothing – women walking around in bikinis or bathing suits, and men walking around shirtless can face costly fines
  • get naked on a non-nudist beach
  • wash with soap or shampoo at a beach shower – chemicals are harmful to marine life
  • take a nap or sleep on the beach

How much are the Spanish fines for tourists?

Fines of up to £2,500 could be imposed on Spanish tourists breaking new rules and regulations, The mirror reports. The biggest fine of £2,500 can come from hosting a beach barbecue in beach areas like Salobrena without prior permission.

A nationwide no-smoking policy has been extended to prevent people from smoking on popular beaches. This means you can be fined £25 for breaking this new policy, especially on beaches and smoke-free areas like Galicia, Murcia, Catalonia, Andalucia, Asturias, Canary Islands and Islands Balearics.

For indecent clothing where tourists walk around in bathing suits or shirtless, you can face a fine of £250. Likewise, it’s illegal to use soap or shampoo in a beach shower in Spain and you can be fined an even higher £620 if caught doing so.

It’s also illegal to sleep on the beach and can land you a fine of £1,240 in Valencia in particular. Public nudity on a non-nudist beach can result in a £620 fine for tourists.

SPOKANE, Wash. – For those who sacrifice so much to secure our freedom, it Preferred Support Team Fund for a few people at the Innovia Foundation presents a chance for the community to give back.

“We were like, how do we keep Airmen morale up, especially with deployment?” recalled Kitara Johnson, a former Army veteran. “We want them to be mission ready, and how does the community support them? By giving them the things they need.

Johnson and Charlie Duranona, both veterans themselves, wanted to support the airmen and airwomen of the base, which has supported the community for 80 years. The result? The birth of a foundation to support families in need and cover the costs of everything defense department cannot fund.

“When the airmen are deployed, the family stays behind, taking care of the children. So this fund would actually help improve resilience and quality of life,” Duranona explained.

Events like picnics, taking families to baseball games, and activities to help boost mental health while loved ones are away.

The question remains: how to raise the money?

“It started around 8:00 p.m. last night, and at 8:00 a.m. today, we’re talking to Charlie, and we’re going to come up with $25,000,” said John Bryant, owner of No-Li Brewhouse.

It’s a mission that Ty Lindquist, the head brewer of Non-Li, connects personally. Coming from an Air Force family, he knew the need firsthand.

Now No-Li is leading the charge, hoping to raise at least $25,000 in a week.

No-Li has more than 300 KC-135 Shirts. Each is priced at $25, and every penny goes to the fund to support all the brave men and women who fight for our freedom.

Get out those T-shirts and shorts, summer electricity prices (and therefore air conditioning costs) are expected to rise 12% this summer, according to the state’s Public Service Commission.

“Overall, the average rate for full-service residential products statewide is expected to be approximately 12% higher than last summer,” according to a PSC statement Thursday.

The increase is primarily driven by higher natural gas prices, which is the result of post-COVID economic growth and uncertainty over global fuel supplies in light of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

“Due to an expected increase in generator fuel costs as well as changes in pricing and capacity obligations, residential and commercial customers may experience higher product bills this summer than last year,” said PSC Chairman Rory Christian said Thursday in a prepared statement on the expected increases. .

This does not mean that electricity prices have remained stable in recent years. The increases planned for the summer follow price increases of 11% each year over the past two summers. And this summer would mark a return to 2014 prices, followed by several years of declining natural gas prices.

Estimates of how this summer’s increase will likely translate into dollars and cents were not immediately available. But the higher prices also come after winter costs have also risen.

Natural gas energy is used to heat homes in the winter and cool them in the summer. While natural gas systems are used to power boilers and heaters in homes and buildings, air conditioning in the summer puts a load on the electrical grid. Much of this electricity is produced by natural gas-fired power plants, which typically account for more than a third of the state’s energy sources.

Police chiefs have now set up a separate Strike Force Leary to investigate the shooting and work with Strike Force Raptor, which has also been bolstered by 30 other officers from 115 to 145 detectives.

“It’s shocking, disturbing and unacceptable. When it happens in a public place, at 8pm, in a gymnasium, it will not be tolerated,” said NSW Police Minister Paul Toole.

“If you’re part of Sydney’s underworld, we’re going to hunt you down. We will break down doors.

“We are going to raid homes, we are going to raid businesses, we are going to harass you, we are going to disrupt your daily life to stop this kind of activity. It is unacceptable.

‘If you’re involved, an associate then I’m telling you right now, you better rethink your assets. We will come after you and lock you up.

Plenty of hiding places available, plenty of food, few predators except maybe your neighbor’s cat.

“Although I don’t think a cat could put down a rat that size. You will need a terrier or a brown snake.

“Having seen behind the scenes at a few Westfields, that doesn’t surprise me at all,” another commenter said.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Westfield for comment.

The ruthless enforcer had been a marked man for weeks, with gang rivals putting a seven-figure bounty on him, estimated to be between $1 million and $7 million.

Tuesday night, someone almost got their bumper paycheck.

Despite warnings about hitmen pursuing him, Zahed, 41, refused to stay away from the gym. As a result, he was shot in a hail of bullets alongside his younger brother Omar, 39, on Tuesday evening.

Omar was killed instantly, but Zahed clung to life after being shot 10 times in the body and head, leaving him seriously injured.

The couple had been ordered to leave town a few days earlier.

“Both brothers were tipped off last Thursday,” NSW State Crime Commander Michael Fitzgerald revealed.

“Their lives have been in danger for some time.

“They decided not to follow our recommendations to leave this state.”

The crowd turned on him in abuse as he walked down the aisle, delaying play in the middle of the critical game, and the referee ordered him, “Just sit in the nearest seat.”

Another music video gave a clear glimpse of his volatile fury.

He was caught on CCTV talking to junior associate Mohamed Aouli at a private birthday party at Crown Casino’s a’Mare restaurant in Barangaroo in Sydney.

Zahed leads him to the restroom before suddenly unleashing blow after blow as his acolytes lead the unwitting victim back inside, before the door closes.

Zahed – the Comanchero’s sergeant-at-arms – was set to take over the nation’s network of motorcycle gangs after leader Mick Murray was jailed awaiting trial for a 2019 murder.

Police today admitted the Comancheros are Australia’s ‘largest criminal organisation’.

It follows the links between the biker gang and the Alameddine crime family – where the bikers act as brutal enforcers

Zahed walked in and out of jail after throwing his dog at a man, stomping on another man’s skull in a row of drugs – causing him brain damage – and shooting another after a savage street fight

Zahed is effectively the recent leader of the NSW Comancheros since the head of state, Mark Buddle, fled overseas in 2016 after being linked to the murder of a Sydney security officer.

And Zahed’s own criminal life dates back 27 years, to 1995, when he was first convicted of assault.

Since then, Zahed has been back and forth in prison after throwing his dog at a man, stomping on another man’s skull in a row of drugs – causing him brain damage – and shooting another after a crazy street fight.

More recently, the Comancheros had been linked to an alleged $1 million shipment of methamphetamine and MDMA seized by police in Bankstown last December, which saw two other members of the motorcycle gang arrested.

Zahed also allegedly made enemies while living in Victoria, which may also have triggered the hit.

As they continue to search for their dream home, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck show that their everyday style is perfectly in tune. The recently engaged couple stepped out in coordinating button-up shirts for another house-hunting adventure in Los Angeles yesterday. Lopez’s shirt was a deep forest green and was decorated with gold buttons, while two front pockets kept the casual style practical. The actress left the top buttons undone for a laid-back vibe. Meanwhile, Affleck wore a lavender shirt — the sleeves of which he rolled up to match his fiancee’s casual flair — and classic khaki pants.

As her stepson leaned into the casual side, Lopez chose to dress up her ensemble with button-up high-waisted denim jeans; a dark green Gucci belt; and its iconic large golden hoops. She styled her hair in a relaxed ponytail, keeping it firmly tied behind her rose-tinted aviator sunglasses. While her shoes weren’t visible, we can only imagine looking special by her beloved six-inch heels, which she’s been known to rock, even on a solo shopping trip.

This isn’t the first time the couple have coordinated their looks. On a recent outing to pick up Lopez’s daughter from school, the duo wore ’90s-inspired looks, Lopez in black overalls and a white shirt and Affleck in black jeans and a gray and burgundy plaid shirt jacket . Last month, they also showed off their knack for styling transitional outfits by picking up Affleck’s son from school, Lopez wearing blue split-hem jeans and a floral blouse while walking beside Affleck, who wore black jeans, a navy shirt and a gray shirt jacket.

Up front, watch the lovebirds in action, then recreate Lopez’s look with similar items.

Online sleuths have solved one of life’s greatest mysteries: where do the little holes in t-shirts come from?

Hint: they’re not moths.

For years people have wondered why almost identical holes appear in the lower front part of their t-shirts.

Whether it’s a designer t-shirt or a basic Kmart shirt, these pesky holes don’t discriminate and people have scoured every corner of the internet in search of a definitive answer. .

Online sleuths have solved the mystery of small holes appearing on T-shirts after the issue was raised in a viral video. Source: TikTok/@StarryNoisy

People have previously speculated that closet critters, such as moths, silverfish, ants, and even cockroaches of your garden variety, are responsible for holes in t-shirts.

Others have suggested that the holes are the result of shirts getting stuck in washing machines and dryers, but that doesn’t answer why the holes are usually in the same place.

RELATED

So what is the cause of small holes in T-shirts?

The answer to the age-old question of how these annoying holes are created is much simpler than most people think…they are caused by friction.

Generally, the most common cause of pinholes in t-shirts is rubbing against the metal hardware of our jeans, such as buttons, zippers, rivets, and even stubborn knots of thread around The fly.

Friction caused by metallic hardware on jeans has been found to be one of the main causes of small holes in t-shirts. Source: Getty

If you add wearing a seat belt, carrying a heavy shoulder bag, or working on a bench or desk to the scenario, these holes are even more likely to appear.

The reason these small holes have become more common in recent years is likely due to fast fashion, which means retailers are using lower quality cotton and jersey to keep their prices competitive.

Viral TikTok helps solve mysterious case of t-shirt holes

As consumers searched the internet to diagnose their mysterious shirt holes, one woman caught the attention of millions with her TikTok video on the subject.

In the woman’s tiktok videocaptioned “These aren’t moths,” she asks why all of her T-shirts have tiny holes in one place.

“There are these little holes in the same place on almost every shirt I own,” reads a caption in the video, which switches to different shirts with the same type of holes.

The relatable video quickly went viral, amassing more than 13 million views and 31,000 comments from people who correctly theorized it was the ‘friction’ caused by zippers, buttons, counters and waistbands. security.

How to Avoid Pesky Holes in Tops

Although t-shirt holes may be unavoidable for some people, there are ways to avoid them.

Wearing an apron while working on a counter will prevent chafing between your shirt and the bench, while tucking in your top will prevent it from rubbing on your jeans’ button or zipper.

Making sure you buy high quality cotton tops will also prolong their lifespan.

Fans of the “French tuck,” that is, tucking the bottom of your t-shirt into the front of your jeans, will also be pleased to know that this will help reduce chafing that causes those holes.

Imitation is perhaps the sincerest form of flattery, but sometimes it’s just super lazy.

Fila, the historic Italian fashion brand that has been owned by South Korean parent company Fila Korea for 15 years, is an expert in reinvention. The company was founded in 1911; throughout its existence, it sold underwear to adventurers in the Italian Alps, made beloved low-top sneakers and outfitted tennis stars. These days, Fila seems determined to become a vehicle for colorful and timeless Gen Z fashion. The company sponsors the world’s biggest pop group, BTS, and has made inroads on TikTok.

But during this mission, Fila may have sacrificed some creative integrity. One of the brand’s most recent drops is a somewhat absurd rip-off of a collection from a much younger (and much less powerful) brand: Tombolo, which we profiled last summer. Tombolo offers “escapewear” – its founders describe the style as “idle clothing for quiet getaways…emotionally nostalgic yet entirely new clothing”. Here’s what we wrote after taking the brand’s calling card, the Cabana shirt, for a spin last summer:

“He channels Hemingway’s mooring Pillar in Havana, or the aperitifs of Amalfi in Talented Mr. Ripley. The cut is more boxy, nostalgic and serious in a way that is decidedly different from the mainstream “escape wear” offered by Mr. Thomas Bahama. Yet with names like “Vongole! “, “Rocket Lobster” and “Flamingo Tartare”, Tombolo is an obvious bed companion for daytime aperitifs, rooftops and weekends. »

We are fans, of course. But it also looks like Fila’s design team copied and pasted Tombolo’s exact fit, material, and vibe when conceptualizing their all-new ‘Cabana Collection’. (Yeah, even the name is exactly the same.) For a refresher on Tombolo’s iconic shirts, see here. For an overview of the latest from Fila, watch here. It’s pretty simple to the naked eye, but in case you’re having trouble putting it together, look at the half zip, multi-colored cuffed sleeves, pockets with whimsical summer images sticking out of them, the terry cloth.

In the product description, Fila wrote, “A luxury terrycloth polo shirt for men and women. Or anyone else who likes to look good and feel good. Iconic Everywhere. #FILAstyle. Avoiding the first two head-scratching sentences of this copy to address this hashtag, it’s clearly not #FILAstyle. It’s #Tombolostyle…with a $40 discount.

Like most multinationals (Fila has 11 offices), the company has figured out how to make a good thing cheaper. While Tombolo makes its shirts with 100% organic cotton, Fila uses an 84% cotton, 16% polyester blend. It’s the look for less, but judging by a quick perusal of the offerings, it’s just not as fun.

Tombolo puts pasta, tequila and lobster on his shirts. One of his best features a shark about to eat two seals. It’s called “Ménage-à-Gnaw”. It’s a very specific brand, very ridiculous. Why dump his vibe for a half-baked Palm Springs collection? Fila is allowed to do whatever it wants — fashion trends exist firmly in the public domain — but it’s a resort wear war that probably shouldn’t have happened.

There’s not much Tombolo can (or should) do except continue to produce the best version of an idea that was theirs to begin with. Fortunately, their followers seem to have caught on to the new counterfeits early on – a spokesperson for Tombolo said that “a group of customers contacted [the company’s founders] about that.”

If one thing is certain, terry cloth is very fashionable this summer. Tombolo and fake Tombolo aren’t the only brands turning beach towels into pool party shirts. look at AEO, Adam Mar and Todd Snyder for terry tops that offer a change of pace from the usual polo shirts that appear this time of year. That being said, most options from these brands are more understated and won’t match the energy of Tombolo’s wackiest creations.

In the long run, supporting Tombolo is a win-win. They only have a few employees and 81,000 Instagram followers (compared to nearly 1,500 employees and over two million followers for Fila), so give the little guy a chance in this beach theme, You’ve got mail smack down. Better than supporting any kind of weird plagiarism negligence going on here. Plus, you’re sure to get a day of compliments in a Tombolo shirt. I wore mine last weekend for this exact purpose.
