Out of work in Charlotte because of COVID-19? Here are 5 ways to make money online

frank lampard

The closure of businesses due to COVID-19 has impacted jobs and forced many out of work. Whether you are looking for supplemental income to make up for lost hours or for full-time employment, there are some options available online.

“I have been able to transition to working from home full time because of all of the opportunities to teach students English online,” said Charlottean Adalee Raubenheimer, who has been teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) from home for the past couple of years.

“Though the larger companies are often based in China, I also teach Turkish, Russian, Polish and Vietnamese students. There are many resources and videos online to help you get started. Personally, I’ve found that Qkids is one of the most flexible and beginner-friendly options.”

Whether teaching a language calls your name or if you’d rather focus on graphic design, tutoring or even taking surveys, here are

Universities’ move online ‘must be done the right way’

frank lampard

Harry Ashworth should be in the final term of his first year at Oxford University, studying music.

Instead he is stuck at his parents’ house in south London hunched over a laptop, listening to lectures via Zoom.

He doesn’t feel that the sudden and dramatic change in circumstances has affected his learning too much, but he is missing some aspects of university life.

“I am in a jazz orchestra and that isn’t really happening now. And I would have been playing at the summer balls, so there are social events that I’ve missed.”

Some of his more practical lessons have also been curtailed.

Academically he feels less motivated “which makes me less stressed but also flatter”.

“Psychologically when you are at home it is different. When I am in my tutor’s office I feel a bit more inspired.”

Students are getting used to working from home.

Why home fitness will never replace gyms

frank lampard

Juliana Campos is a Brazilian London-based fitness expert and personal trainer, who has previously worked as the Abu Dhabi royal family’s exercise coach.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced more people to partake in home workouts, whether as a replacement for those all-important steps, to start a fitness journey they’ve previously not had time for, or as a way of remaining relatively sane during lockdown. Whatever reason people have been working out for, it’s been helping to keep the nation fit, both physically and mentally, during one of the most stressful periods in modern history.

Of course, home fitness isn’t a new phenomenon. It’s been a fixture in many households for decades, with Lycra-clad stars like Jane Fonda and Olivia Newton-John shimmying across our screens in their leg warmers in the 80s. Mr. Motivator (also lycra-clad) took over the indoor fitness baton in the 90s, while in the 00s, workout DVDs

Don’t let online education turn into the next crisis that hits people of color hardest

frank lampard

When historians look back at 2020, they might see some important lessons about how problems become really big problems when left to fester. 

First, COVID-19 shut down the American economy and killed over 112,000 Americans — disproportionately African American — because we failed to establish the proper public health response early to address it. 

Then, intense national protests erupted in every major city because of our persistent inability to address systemic racism, which manifested itself this time in the brutal police killing of George Floyd.

Problems don’t go away if we try to sweep them under the rug. They just get worse.

Another crisis now looms. Since tens of millions of Americans began sheltering in place in March, the nation’s schools have switched to remote learning. Many teachers, students and parents were unprepared for distance learning, which could become a permanent fixture of education. And once again, communities of color

The grocery store anxiety is real, even on a typical day. It can be incredibly stressful trying to push the cart with one hand and read your shopping list with the other — all the while trying to navigate your way through the small, crowded aisles.

It can be even worse if you’re not able to find exactly what you need when you need it, and you have to resort to alternatives (bidets, anyone?).

Still, keeping some food in your fridge, freezer and pantry is necessary, whether or not you’re grocery shopping for a quarantine. No matter how much of a devout takeout

Does living in New York make any financial sense after this pandemic?

frank lampard

I have long known that much of my life’s frustrations come from trying to have it both ways. Though they were made available to me, I shunned more traditional and more stable careers. Instead, I have continued, time and again, to try to be a writer, knowing full well this is not a stable choice. I simultaneously hoped for and attempted to create a stable life for our kids. I continued to attempt to perpetuate the illusion that I live the kind of life that people with more traditional jobs are able to afford – we kept living in New York, with two kids, kept trying to have health insurance and sometimes go to the dentist, kept trying to send our children to good public schools and summer camps.

How will dentist appointments in the UK change on 8 June?

frank lampard

Dental practices in the UK can reopen from 8 June if they put in place appropriate safety measures, Prime Minister Boris Johnson says.

When will dentists reopen in the UK?

Dental practises in the UK will be allowed to reopen from 8 June.

In a letter to practices, NHS England’s chief dental officer Sara Hurley said: ‘We are asking that all dental practices commence opening from Monday, 8 June for all face-to-face care, where practices assess that they have the necessary IPC and PPE requirements in place.’

However, not all practices may reopen on this date. British Dental Association chairman Mick Armstrong said that while dentists would be relieved by the announcement, practices should be allowed to decide for themselves when they are ready to open, based on the availability of personal protective equipment.

‘Dentists can open their doors but won’t be able to provide a full range of care
