Israeli researchers say spirulina algae could reduce COVID mortality rate
A team of scientists from Israel and Iceland have published research showing that an extract of spirulina algae has the potential to reduce the chances of COVID-19 patients developing a serious case of the disease. The research, published in the peer-reviewed journal Marine Biotechnology, found that an extract of photosynthetically manipulated Spirulina is 70% effective in inhibiting the release of the cytokine TNF-a, a small signalling protein used by the immune system.From The Jerusalem Post - https://www.jpost.com/health-science/israeli-researchers-say-spirulina-algae-could-stop-covid-19-deaths-660064

Innovating training environments is the new normal
Irish company Digisoft TV is using virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) to create immersive training environments for the new normal. The company recreates an organisation’s day-to-day working environment and/or production lines into a digital version with people able to interact on any type of device, so they can train remotely in social distancing times or to prevent contamination in environments which need to be kept very clean. It also improves the standard of training because the sensory experience of photorealistic immersive training results is 6-7 times the level of knowledge retention in trainees when compared with traditional presentations.

With the impact of the Covid-19, telecommuting and distance learning have become the new trend. Barbara et al. (2020) give five ideas on how to manage remote employees effectively.1) Establish daily check-ins: not only for employees to regularly report but also to allow them to tell managers about the problems they encounter.2) Provide various technologies for communication: email is often not enough, and video conferencing can allow for more interaction and help employees feel less isolated. 3) Set "rule of engagement"- expectations for frequency, means and timing of communications4) Provide opportunities for remote social interaction. 5) Offer encouragement and emotional support.  Read more: https://sangroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/aguid
