Experts Share Advice On Confusing Tax Situations Created By Pandemic
Learn how stimulus payments and unemployment may impact your tax refund (Family Features) In 2020, Americans experienced firsts across virtually every aspect of life. Now, with an extended tax deadline of May 17 approaching, the implications for such an unusual year have some people wondering how all those changes might affect their tax refund. From job loss to new tax breaks for unemployment benefits, plus three economic stimulus payments, many Americans will see an impact to their tax refund. According to a survey by H&R Block, most tax filers have more questions about taxes than they did last year. The No. 1 concern on most taxpayers' minds is how stimulus checks will impact their refunds (52%), followed by questions related to unemployment. If you haven't filed your taxes yet, you can find answers to some of this year's most pressing tax questions with help from the experts at H&R Block.

“We are saddened to announce our store burned down early this morning. Nobody was hurt, for that we are grateful. We will be closed until further notice. Thank you all for your support. Take care.” The fire also destroyed the Real Estate Office As of Sunday afternoon no cause had been announced. photo by Kristi Sisson CAL FIRE/San Diego County Fire responded at 1:45 this morning to a reported commercial structure fire at the Montezuma Valley Store. Upon firefighter arrival, the store was fully involved and the fire was spreading to the nearby real estate building. Firefighters worked to contain the fire and protect other surrounding exposures. Crews were able to save documents from the real estate office and packages stored nearby for Pacific Crest Trail travelers. Individuals sleeping in nearby structures were able to return once firefighters had knock-down on the fire. No injuries; fire still under investigation.
Julian Union High’s Spirit Week Homecoming As many of us know Covid-19 has changed many things for us and it goes without saying that it’s changed many things for high school students. When we picture Homecoming Week in Julian we think of a grand football game and a parade down main street and all around spirit. When ASB was coming together to plan a Homecoming Week for the students we wished to give them at least a chunk of that school spirit. Which is what we believe we have done when planning this Homecoming Spirit Week. Our highschoolers decided on the theme of ‘sports’ for this spirit week. Seniors chose football, Juniors chose baseball, Sophomores chose basketball, and Freshman chose soccer. They will have dress up days throughout the whole week, Monday will be pajama day, Tuesday will be Tourist Tuesday, Wednesday will be Western Wednesday, Thursday will be TV Thursday, and the students will dress up as their allotted sports on Friday where we will have our outside and covid safe crowning of our Homecoming King and Queen. The students also got together and voted for their homecoming court. Freshman Prince and Princess is Mac Moretti and Riley Stirling Baucom, Sophomore Prince and Princess is Ben and Nevaeh, Junior Prince and Princess is Alyssa Arias and Charlie Taylor, and finally, Senior Homecoming court is Dakotah Audibert and Elizabeth Denny, Alan Avila and Molly Dickinson, Alex Gonzalez and Maria Hatch, Zen Hill and Britney Vargas. Although this Homecoming week might look different to many of us, we are still planning on that school spirit being there and giving our high school students events to look forward to. Throughout the lunch games, competitiveness throughout the week, homecoming court, and dress up days, ASB is really looking forward to this spirit week for the students.
The first thing to know about the 2020 stimulus payments is they are not taxable income, so you don't need to report them as income on your tax return. However, some life changes could mean even more money for you through the Recovery Rebate Credit. If you added a child to your family in 2020 or you're filing taxes for the first time on your own, not as a dependent, you may be eligible for an additional stimulus payment when you file your return. There's also good news if your stimulus payments were too high because your income increased, or your kids turned 17 in 2020. You do not have to repay any overpayments and your refund won't be reduced. For the third stimulus payment, there are two ways you could receive additional stimulus money. Depending on when or if your 2020 tax return was processed, your third stimulus payment might not have reflected a new child or significantly lower income from 2019 to 2020. This could be fixed through a "plus up" payment later this year or on your 2021 return. For the "plus up" payment, the IRS will redetermine your eligibility for an additional payment after you file your 2020 tax return. If you are due more, you'll receive another payment from the IRS for the difference. When you file taxes next year, you could receive an additional payment on your tax return with the 2021 Recovery Rebate Credit if in 2021 you have a child, your income drops significantly or you file for the first time.
The American Rescue Plan Act passed by Congress in March gave tax breaks to the record number of people who received unemployment income in 2020. You can exclude up to $10,200 of unemployment benefits as income if your household income is less than $150,000. If you already filed your 2020 taxes and your return included unemployment income, there is no need to file an amended return in most cases. In May, the IRS will begin calculating and issuing refunds for overpayments. However, because everyone's situation will be unique, this benefit may make some people eligible for additional credits or deductions, including the Earned Income Credit. Working with a tax professional to evaluate if you have become newly eligible for a credit or to understand if your state tax return(s) will be impacted will help you know what actions you may need to take to ensure the best tax outcome.
Many Americans got creative to overcome uncertainty in 2020 and generate more income. You may not realize it, but if you earned money through gig work last year, like driving for a ride-sharing app, you're likely self-employed. It might surprise you to learn that unlike a paycheck from an employer, no taxes are withheld from income received from gig work. That means federal income taxes and self-employment taxes are due on your self-employment income and you are responsible for paying estimated payments or face penalties. Working with an H&R Block tax pro can help you understand your situation, explain the outcomes and help plan for the year ahead.
With so many changes in the past year and many people experiencing firsts like unemployment or gig work, it is important to understand your situation and file an accurate tax return. Getting help is easy with H&R Block, whether you prefer filing on your own or working with a tax pro - virtually, online or in-person. If you're used to meeting your tax professional in person but want to stay socially distant, there are digital tools available. You can drop off documents at a local office or send scans or photos of essential documents, and when forms are finished, you can review and approve them online. You can also use the myBlock app to get updates on your tax return, to connect with a tax pro year-round, explore mobile banking and plan for next year.

"Making sure people have access to financial information and being able to help bridge the gap between what they don't know and need to know is so important to me," East said. "Filing taxes can create a lot of confusion and uncertainty for many, especially during a year when so many people's lifestyles have changed.

Spark Scientific Discovery At Home
Emily Calandrelli, The Space Gal (Family Features) Science influences many aspects of daily life in countless ways. It also helps shape the development of life skills from an early age. As children learn to communicate, think critically, make predictions and form opinions based on their observations, they are developing science skills that will last a lifetime. Through its "Wonder of Science" initiative celebrating bringing innovation to kitchen tables for 100 years, Wonder Bread is helping to support ongoing scientific learning for students across America. In partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org and Emily Calandrelli, an American science communicator, MIT engineer and co-executive producer and host of "Emily's Wonder Lab" on Netflix, the bread manufacturer is donating $100,000 to provide U.S. middle and high schools with supplies and equipment for science education and presenting an online series of science experiments for students. Allowing children to put those science-based skills to the test at home can be both simple and fun. Whether you head outside to identify clouds and species of animals or work on crafts indoors, there are plenty of everyday learning scenarios that allow parents to get hands-on with their children's education. Bake Together
Baking can be a fun (and tasty) way to introduce scientific experimentation by following a recipe to see how the ingredients react together - or with too much or too little of a certain ingredient - and testing the end product against the desired results. As recipes are mixed, heated and cooled, baking introduces a variety of chemical reactions, including water evaporation, caramelization, browning and more. Conduct Experiments with Everyday Supplies Special tools and equipment aren't necessary for discovering and fostering a love of science or conducting your own experiments. By using household items you may already have on hand and following a few simple instructions from Calandrelli, you can create your own homemade rockets or inflate a balloon. "Getting kids excited about science and interested in how it affects our lives every day is the best part of what I do," Calandrelli said. "Joining Wonder Bread to spread that message of wonder not just through my show but directly into classrooms is a fantastic opportunity. I can't wait to share my love of science." Start a Garden One of the best ways to introduce children to a variety of plant species and the process through which they grow is to grow your own garden. Start by
letting the kids pick some plants or vegetables that germinate and produce a crop quickly such as carrots or petunias then choose a location to plant. Test and prepare the soil then plant your seeds and water as needed. Visit wonderbread.com for more information. Balloon on a Bottle Courtesy of Emily Calandrelli on behalf of Wonder Bread 2 tablespoons dry yeast 1 tablespoon sugar 2-3 tablespoons lukewarm water 1 large mouth, glass pint bottle 1 party balloon In cup, stir yeast, sugar and water. Using funnel, pour mixture into bottle. Add more water as needed to push mixture through bottleneck. Quickly stretch balloon over mouth of bottle. Observe bubbles in yeast mixture and watch balloon inflate. Inflation can take 10-30 minutes, depending on mixture. Effervescent Tablet Rocket Courtesy of Emily Calandrelli on behalf of Wonder Bread Film canister Water 1/2 effervescent antacid tablet Plate
Watch or timer In film canister, add water until it's one-quarter full. Add half effervescing antacid tablet to film canister and quickly snap on lid. Place film canister rocket on plate on ground, lid down. Stand back and use watch or timer to count down until launch. Emily Dawn Calandrelli is an American scientist, former engineer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, science communicator and the host and an executive producer of Xploration Outer Space and Emily’s Wonder Lab. she’s featured as a correspondent on Netflix’s Bill Nye Saves the World and an Executive Producer and host of FOX’s Xploration Outer Space. Emily is the author of the science chapter book series, the Ada Lace Adventures. The third book in the series was launched to the International Space Station through the Story Time from Space program. Emily is also a professional speaker who has spoken at venues like Google, Pixar, MIT, Texas Instruments, CERN, and dozens of K-12 schools and Universities around the country.
(StatePoint) For the past year, many of us have lived, played, worked and gone to school right at home, making clutter inevitable – especially when it comes to kids’ bedrooms and playrooms. No matter how many times parents tell their children to clean their rooms, the collection of clothes, schoolwork and toys seems to build endlessly. Take charge of the mess with these tips to create a space that’s fun and functional for kids of all ages. 1. Prioritize Belongings. Start by considering what needs to go, what can stay and how much storage space you have available. Make it a family project by working with your kids to identify which items they love most and which things they could do without. Once you know what will be kept, prioritize space accordingly, keeping beloved items easily accessible. 2. Organize the Stuff. Find everything a home. Bins and baskets are ideal for small toys and games with tiny pieces, while drawers and shelves are perfect for larger items. For excess items, especially young children’s toys, use clear bins to store them in closets or under beds. Not only does this help tidy the room, but it can also make old things appear new again when they are pulled out of storage. 3. Create Labels. Getting belongings organized is one thing, but keeping them that way is another. A great way to ensure your hard work doesn’t go to waste is to label the bins or baskets. Labels make things easy to find when you need them and keep items organized when cleaning up. Creating labels with colorful Duck Tape is a kidfriendly DIY project that can help your kids feel in charge of the process. 4. File Away Papers. For older kids, schoolwork should be separated from games and toys, which can be difficult when learning from home and space is limited. Important assignments and documents should be put in folders and binders to prevent them from getting lost and help keep the room looking neat. Organizing school supplies and at-home desks doesn’t have to be a boring task. Customize folders for each kid or each subject with unique designs using printed Duck Tape Brand Duct Tape, or make labels with Duck Brand Chalkboard Tape. 5. Personalize with Décor. Once the room is clean and organized, take some time to add personal touches. Allowing children to pick colors and patterns for their room can really make them feel like it is their own. If you have the space, a table or a lamp can be a fun addition. If you want to keep things simple, showcasing photos of family and friends or displaying kids’ artwork can do the trick, too. For additional home organization tips and DIY projects, visit duckbrand.com. By making the cleaning and organizing process a fun activity, the hope is that children will be more likely to take ownership of the space and motivated to keep it in order moving forward. However, it doesn’t hurt to revisit the process regularly to keep things fresh. *** One problem with the focus on speculation is that it tends to promote the growth of the great intellectual cancer of our times: conspiracy theories.

Be A Stroke Hero - How To Identify The Signs Of Stroke And Why You Should Act Fast (BPT) - The sudden onset of stroke symptoms can happen to anyone at any time, making education about the signs and symptoms of a “brain attack” the first line of defense to stroke prevention. “I’m a fanatical fan of football, so you can imagine how excited I was to enter the stadium to see my favorite team play; but I lost my balance and fell. I’m lucky the people near me jumped into action and called 911,” recalled stroke survivor William Martin. “They are the real heroes in my medical emergency story; they knew the signs of a stroke.” Stroke is the second leading cause of death and third leading cause of disability worldwide. Today, only 10% of stroke survivors make a full recovery and 25% recover with minor impairments. Forty percent of survivors experience moderate to severe impairments that require special care. Strokes are common and deadly, but the good news is almost all strokes can be prevented. What is stroke? A stroke happens when the blood vessels carrying nutrients to the brain either form a clot or rupture, causing a sudden blockage in the arteries leading to the brain. When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs, so it and brain cells die. How to prevent stroke Generally, there are three treatment stages for stroke: prevention, therapy immediately after stroke and post-stroke rehabilitation. Engaging in active prevention is the most effective treatment. What can you do to prevent stroke? 1. Monitor your blood pressure 2. Control your cholesterol 3. Keep your blood sugar down 4. Keep active 5. Eat healthy 6. Lose weight if necessary 7. Do not smoke 8. Talk to your physician about aspirin and other medications In the event of stroke: Act F.A.S.T “Every minute from the time the stroke occurs to when you receive treatment makes a difference,” said neurointerventional radiologist at St. Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City Jared Halpin, M.D. “Many types of stroke are now treatable with emergency medical interventions to either quickly dissolve or remove the blood clot or stop the bleeding that is causing symptoms.” Seek treatment, F.A.S.T. Follow the acronym below to check for signs of stroke: • FACE drooping: Does one side of the face droop or is it numb? Ask the person to smile. continued on page 8

• On April 25, 1719, Daniel Defoe's "The Life and Strange Adventures of Robinson Crusoe" is published. The book, about a shipwrecked sailor who spends 28 years on a deserted island, is based on the experiences of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish sailor who spent four years on a small island off South America. • On April 24, 1800, President John Adams approves legislation to appropriate $5,000 to establish the Library of Congress. The first books, ordered from London, arrived in 1801. Twelve years later, the library was destroyed when the British army invaded the city of Washington and burned the Capitol. • On April 22, 1945, Adolf Hitler, upon learning that no German defense was offered to the Russian assault at Eberswalde, admits to all in his underground bunker in Berlin that the war is lost and suicide is his only recourse. • On April 23, 1954, Hank Aaron hits the first home run of his Major League Baseball career. Twenty years later, Aaron broke Babe Ruth's long-standing record of 714 career homers. Aaron retired from baseball in 1976 with 755 career homers. • On April 20, 1971, the Pentagon confirms that fragging incidents (tossing fragmentation hand grenades into sleeping areas) are on the rise. Fragging incidents in combat were usually attempts to remove leaders perceived to be incompetent and a threat to survival. • On April 21, 1980, Rosie Ruiz, age 26, finishes first in the women's division of the Boston Marathon. Ruiz was stripped of her victory eight days later after race officials learned she joined the race about a mile before the finish line. • On April 19, 1995, a massive truck bomb explodes outside the Alfred P.

Told You So ... The First Anglo Afghan War was in 1842. It was a result of what Gorchakoff identified as a problem in Russia two decades later—in order to protect the outer reaches of the empire you had to conquer troublemakers beyond the border and expand. Especially if the Great Power on the other side of the territory was Russia. So the Brits sent an army to intervene in a messy succession in Afghanistan in 1839, ousting Dost Mohammed (“dost” means friend— ha!) and installing Shah Shuja after which they thought all was well. The Brits then withdrew a majority of their troops, leaving about 8,000 men plus camp followers and such in Kabul. By 1842, however, the British force and camp followers had increased in number, Dost Mohammed had regrouped and all was indeed NOT well. A longish and messy story but by the time the British soldiers finally retreated to what is now Pakistan almost all were annihilated. Women and children were captured and, for the most part, integrated into Afghan society. So to speak. Eventually various aspects of the 19th century international map changed and the Brits decided Afghanistan was better left alone. The Russians had their go at Afghanistan in the 20th century. The end wasn’t as bloody as that of the British force whose bodies lined the road to Pakistan, but it wasn’t pretty. And it wasn’t widely seen as a win for the Russians, to put it mildly. All this makes Afghanistan seem more united and together than it is. The “unity” was more in fighting a foreign invader than in any long term reality. Afghanistan is composed of historical tribes who have traditionally looked on fighting, each other and foreign invaders alike, the way the Scots see golf. It’s a national pastime and they are proud of it. And good at it. Not to be deterred by history, we Americans went into Afghanistan after 9/11 with the goal—laudable—of getting Osama bin Laden which we did. We also tried to subdue the Taliban, unite warring factions, install a good government with democratic tendencies and without corruption. We wanted to do many things, all of them for the good of Afghanistan and to promote world peace. What we didn’t do is pay attention to (a) history, and (b) Afghanistan. And now, we too, are leaving. It isn’t a great outcome, it isn’t what we wanted, it may not be what many Afghans wanted but… there it is. As Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are bound to repeat it.”
Big News For Small Towns: 5G For All (NAPSI)—Despite years of talk about how 5G is going to transform everyone’s lives, most people haven’t experienced the lightning-fast speeds and incredible performance of it—yet. What Is 5G And Why Do I Want It? 5G is the fifth generation of network technology. It may improve everything from entertainment and gaming to education and public safety because it can deliver faster download speeds, real-time responses and enhanced connectivity, giving businesses and consumers the potential to experience new, innovative technologies. With 5G, high amounts of data can be transmitted more efficiently. Over the past few years, billions of dollars have been spent to build 5G networks, yet 92% of Americans don’t have a 5G phone. And no 5G phone means no 5G experience. How To Get It Now, everyone in America can trade in any mobile phone and get a 5G smartphone, free. That’s because the Un-carrier, T-Mobile, has kicked off the #5GforAll era, with The Great Unlimited Trade-Up: The 60 million people stuck on an AT&T or Verizon limited data smartphone plan with limited 5G access, can upgrade to a free 5G smartphone and unlimited data with access to T-Mobile’s full 5G network for the same price—or less—than they’re paying now. How Does It Work? Simply trade in an existing mobile phone, and T-Mobile will give you a new, Samsung Galaxy A32 5G smartphone, free. The offer applies to new and existing customers, and any old phone in working condition. Then you can enjoy full access to an expansive 5G network including Ultra Capacity 5G and Extended Range 5G. 5G For All Equals 5G For Small For too many Americans, however, high-speed Internet is still an impossible dream. Now, more than 30 million households are eligible for high-speed broadband from T-Mobile. The issue of affordable, reliable broadband is particularly acute in rural America, where a quarter of all households don’t have access to any high-speed broadband. And nearly 40 percent of households that do have access are in areas with only one provider, which means no competition. To help with that, nearly 10 million of the households eligible for T-Mobile Home Internet are in rural America. What You Get With T-Mobile Home Internet • Great value. No added taxes or fees. No equipment fees. No contracts. No surprises or exploding bills. • Speed unlimited. With expected average speeds of 100 Mbps for most new customers, it’ll handle all your home’s needs, with unlimited data and no caps. • 5G powered. T-Mobile ships a 4G/5G gateway to your home. • Easy setup. Plug it in, download the app and follow a few simple instructions. You’re online in minutes. • Experts. When you need help, dedicated experts are just a call or message away. To see if this Internet is available for you, visit www.t-mobile.com/isp Where Can You Get It For many Americans, even the best 5G phone can’t do much because of a lack of affordable, reliable broadband. In rural America, a quarter of all households don’t have access to any high-speed broadband. That’s why the communications company’s 5G network spans 1.6 million square miles, with 1.45 million of that coverage in small-town America. With T-Mobile Hometown, the Un-carrier plans to build hundreds of new retail stores in small towns all across America over the next
I have been thinking a lot of different thoughts this week. One that looms large is that we must sell The Julian News to pay medical bills. Yes, we both have Medicare. However, Medicare pays 80% of medical expenses and actually they only pay 80% of approved medical expenses. If a person has Medicare, that doesn’t mean all of the medical bills will get paid. In fact, I have a friend who spent eight days in the hospital with pneumonia and when those bills were added to the rest of his medical bills this year, he found out that he reached the ceiling and Medicare won’t cover any more medical expenses for he and his wife until they cover their copay next year. Right now they are applying for Obamacare for their secondary medical insurance. I hope that works for them. I hope it works for all of us who may need it. I am seventy years-old and Mike is sixty-eight years old. We are both life-long smokers, so here we are with major medical bills probably because we thought “I’ll be okay.”. I’m lucky. I quit smoking eleven years ago, before I ever coughed. I have Emphysema, but so far I can control my daytime breathing with deep breaths. I use oxygen when I sleep just to make certain that I get enough air. Even though I have Emphysema, I consider myself one of the lucky ones. I smoked a total of forty-five years, trying to quit many times. I actually did quit smoking for five years and didn’t feel like I ever had smoked until I split with my previous husband. He did his best to draw out our divorce for five years. Meantime, for two of those years I dated a man who smoked three or four packs of cigarettes each day. It only took one drag of one cigarette for me to be hooked again. Then it took me fourteen years to quit, so now I’m not taking any more chances. I have told people that if I find out I’m on my death bed, I will want to smoke one last cigarette because I quit smoking for my health, not because I disliked it. I really did like smoking. Tonight, I’m listening to my husband cough really deep smoker’s coughs. I feel bad for him. The coughs are exhausting, and he is on oxygen twenty-four hours each day. I’m getting healthier while he isn’t. I never planned a trade, however I actually would gladly give up some of my good health if it could help him. Really. When I quit smoking, the price of cigarettes was going up and I am happy that I am able to save so much money. I hear that a carton of cigarettes can cost $90.00 these days and I know that would be way out of my price range. When I began smoking, cigarettes cost twentyfive cents per pack, that’s $2.50 per carton, and gasoline cost twentyfive cents per gallon. I drove my Mom’s used Lincoln Continental and could fill the tank for $5.00. These days when I hear people whine about the price of gasoline, I tell them how it could be much worse. Smoking is a choice just as not wearing a mask during a pandemic is a choice. However, doing either is a health risk and it risks the health of people around you. As young as we were, I can’t say that Mike and I weren’t told that smoking was bad for our health. In high school in the 1960s we were shown a black and white movie of a heavy smoker getting a lung operation. I can still picture his ribs being pulled apart in the operating room. I was already a steady smoker when I saw that movie and like many teenagers, I thought that movie was a way of adults taking fun away from us. Sometimes adults want to show us that they care for us and that movie was one way. Think before you develop bad habits. Be they cigarettes, alcohol, pills, candy, soda or anything that you think you can’t do without. What you really can’t do without is water and decent food. Sunshine and exercise is good for you too. That’s the end of my lecture. On a bright side of existence here in the country; we have new life on our property! We have two hens that have been taking turns sitting on a batch of eggs and today one egg hatched! We have one tiny yellow peeper and we hope for more. The one hen has now taken complete possession of the nest and will not let any person or chicken near her or her baby. She pecks really fast and hard! She especially won’t let the other hen come near. It’s as if she is saying that she hatched the chick, so it’s hers alone. Hens can be very possessive. We are happy to see this new life here. We have been hoping for it for a long time. These are my thoughts.
Keeping It Great To Be A Kid (NAPSI)—In these uncertain times, kids need music more than ever. Anyone who has ever seen toddlers naturally sway and bob to music, knows that children feel music—and that music and kids go together like macaroni and cheese. Studies also show that music can help the very young deal with stress and turn around their emotions like nothing else. Tunes For Toddlers To that end, Walt Disney Records’ most successful lullaby album artist and producer, Grammy nominee Fred Mollin, created “It’s Great To Be a Kid,” a new album of heartwarming, fun original songs for kids ages 1 through 6. These songs take children on a musical expedition highlighting the beautiful things in life, reminding them how much joy there is to look forward to in their young lives at a time when they need it most. The songs evoke the simple pleasures of being young, driving in a car, walking and seeing the beauty of nature, playing with friends, dancing to an upbeat song, the joy of food and even the fun of helping tidy up the house. Three interactive Bonus Tracks are versions that leave key moments blank during the songs, for children to join in.

These new stores will create 5,000 direct new jobs, plus thousands more in construction and services to build and maintain them.

New Ways Families With Kids Can Go Green (StatePoint) Having kids can mean having a lot of stuff, not all of which is made from eco-friendly materials. However, if you’re like many parents, you want your children to have a clean, healthy planet to live in when they grow up. Going green while parenting might sound challenging, but it’s definitely not impossible. These tips and insights can help get you started: Reusable Food Packaging With a little creativity, you can ditch the plastic utensils, baggies and single-use beverage containers at lunchtime. To substantially reduce your family’s plastic waste, switch to organic, reusable lunchboxes featuring partitions and tightly-fitting, leak-proof lids. Keep kids hydrated with easy-to-clean stainless steel water bottles or thermoses. Finally, rethink the types of products you buy most often. Rather than opting for snacks pre-packed in single-serving plastic, instead buy favorite items in bulk and wrap smaller portions in reusable, compostable wrapping. Eco-Friendly Play Some of your children’s favorite toy brands are already going green, making it easy to make playtime eco-friendly. One example of a leader in the industry is electronic learning toy company VTech, which is committed to sustainability and has plans to replace its fossil-based blister packaging with plant-based alternatives in 99% of its electronic learning products by 2025. Additionally, the brand is launching a variety of green electronic learning products later this year as part of its commitment to replace fossil-based plastics with sustainable alternatives by 2030. New eco-friendly toy options from VTech include the Sort & Recycle Ride-on Truck, which not only highlights the importance of protecting the environment through play, but is made of 90% reclaimed plastic, as well as three new vehicles in the popular Go! Go! Smart Wheels line, all made of 85% plant-based plastic. Its LeapFrog line will include the Choppin’ Fun Learning Pot with food pieces made of 85% plantbased plastic while two new wooden toys, Touch & Learn Nature ABC Board and Interactive Wooden Animal Puzzle, will include wood from responsibly-managed forests certified by Forest Stewardship Council. The brand’s partnership with TerraCycle also provides an easy way for consumers to recycle its electronic learning products. To learn more about VTech’s sustainability efforts, visit vtechcares.com. Composting Composting is a simple way to reduce waste and teach children about how they can positively impact the environment. Start by setting up a compost bin and work with your children to identify ingredients that can be added to it. A good compost recipe includes materials such as dry leaves, household waste like vegetable scraps, coffee grounds and eggshells, and a layer of soil. Add some water and watch as science comes to life. Kids will love seeing their compost turn to soil over time and allowing them to be hands on throughout the process teaches them the concept of recycling in a realistic and relatable way. With a few simple tweaks, parents can make choices that better protect the environment, while setting a great example for kids.

Daikon radish has been a part of a variety of Asian dishes for hundreds of years. It’s a vegetable that can be prepared in a number of ways, from raw slices to picked to roasted until slightly crisp, giving it a texture like a roasted potato. You can find a vast array of radishes throughout the year, and best of all, you can eat a radish from the leaves to the bulb, so there’s no waste. When selecting radishes, make sure that they are firm to the touch, and the tops are fresh without any signs of wilting. They are a root vegetable and a tuber in the Brassicaceae family, along with bok choy, broccoli,
Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collard, rutabaga and turnips. Radishes come in numerous shapes, colors, sizes and varieties, including the beautiful watermelon radish with its pink and white swirls, and the spicy black Spanish radish. Radishes are a nutritional powerhouse. They’re an important source of anthocyanins and flavonoids, and are extremely rich in vitamin C and folic acid, which medical studies have found to be positively linked to the decrease of some cardiovascular diseases. They’re also strong allies in the fight against cancer cell reproduction, particular colon cancer, kidney cancer, intestinal

Many homes were decorated in Chippendale or other old styles. Baker Furniture started in 1903 as Cook, Baker & Company. The name was changed to Baker
All American furniture was handmade before the 1800s, and old furniture was saved until it was too battered to use. The United States was a young country, and the first collector of note was an eccentric man in the 1800s who saved furniture and objects made or used in the 1600s and after. By the late 1700s, the rich were decorating in styles that copied English styles, but with pieces made in America. Wealthy collectors bought antiques if they did not have any from the family. By the 1900s, less expensive copies were made by a few companies. The 1940s were the start of the demand for exact copies of museum pieces. Only an expert could notice the difference and recognize modern tool marks.
The tradename and logo for Baker Furniture Co. has been used since the 1930s even though the company was bought, sold and renamed many times. This piece sold for over $1,000.
Furniture Factories Inc. in 1927. It changed owners seven times, but still used the Baker name as it does today. The company made different styles as decorating tastes changed. The earliest lines were Golden Oak and Mission. By 1923, Baker was making reproductions of Duncan Phyfe. Then it added other 18thcentury wooden pieces. In 1925, Baker started "The Twentieth Century Shop," using rosewood and olive burl, eventually using pieces by midcentury designers like Donald Deskey and, in 1951, Danish Modern by Finn Juhl. Baker continued to make reproductions for Colonial Williamsburg and other historic sites labeled with their names. Today some early reproductions sell for about the same price as an average antique piece. This Biedermeier "secretaire a abattant" has a "Baker" label. It sold for $1,063 at a Neal auction in 2019. *** Q: What is goofus glass? A: Goofus glass is a type of
pressed or mold-blown glass made from about 1900 to 1920 by several American factories. It was the first "carnival glass," an inexpensive glass given away at carnivals, movie theaters, gas stations and other businesses. The glass was cold painted in bright colors and originally sold under names like "Egyptian Art," "Golden Oriental" and other exotic names. The colors weren't fired on, and they flaked off after repeated washing. Because of this, people began calling it by less flattering names. There are several stories about how it got the name "Goofus glass," but no one knows for sure where the name came from. *** CURRENT PRICES Redware jar, manganese glaze, cylindrical, pinched neck, wide flared mouth, stamped "D.

A special day just for kids!
Pastor Cindy Arntson
There once was a man who came to a narrow bridge as he was driving down a country road. Just before the bridge, a yield sign was posted. Seeing no oncoming cars, he continued across the bridge and on to his destination. On the way back, he came to the same one-lane bridge from the other direction. He was surprised to see a yield sign posted there, too. “That’s strange,” he thought. “Wasn’t there one posted on the other side?” Sure enough, when he reached the other side and looked back, he saw yield signs had been placed on both sides of the bridge. Drivers from both directions were requested to give the other the right of way. Obviously, if taken literally and to the extreme, such a policy could create all kinds of traffic problems as everyone waited for someone else to make the first move. But this image of both sides coming to a conflict with an openness or willingness to yield is ultimately more helpful than both sides insisting on their “right-of-way” as they meet. To yield is often seen as a sign of weakness or naivete but there are times when a greater good is achieved by yielding rather than asserting our “rights”. It is relatively easy to give up something we see as bad for something good or something we believe is wrong for something right. It gets much harder when we try to balance two different good things or the good for one with the good for many. Unfortunately, the higher priority these days is to protect the rights of the individual with little regard for the effect on the larger community. Too often, we get so focused on how “right” we are that we don’t even see the bigger picture. We’ve all experienced that warm feeling that comes with getting to the entrance to a store at the same time as someone else and both invite the other to go first. It usually results in laughter and a moment of feeling connected. Imagine how this would improve our relationships within our families, our community and our nation. Mutual yielding seems especially important now as we are transitioning from the extremes of pandemic precautions to more openness as individuals and communities. With so many different perspectives, needs and priorities, how do we coordinate with those around us so we move ahead together balancing maximum freedom and safety with minimum contention or resentment. This mutual yielding requires some self-discipline, reflection and effort. We have to continually ask ourselves hard questions about when to assert our rights and when to yield. There is always a need to balance what we need for ourselves and what others need. This includes considering what is necessary for the future as well as the present. For these hard questions, I draw inspiration and courage from the message of Jesus’ selfgiving love and the promise of God’s abundant provision to help me yield as necessary for the needs of others and the common good. Cindy Arntson is ordained

Cataract Surgery Saves An Avid Bowler’s Vision In Record Time (NAPSI)—If you ever have trouble seeing your way clear to getting your eyes checked, here’s a case to consider: Genida White could tell her vision was gradually getting worse, but she rationalized away the need
to see an ophthalmologist—a medical doctor who specializes in eyecare. She could still do all the things she enjoyed, such as bowling every Monday. But mostly, she was nervous to hear what the doctor would say about her eyes. Her daughter provided the encouragement she needed, telling her about a radio advertisement she heard about free eye exams with EyeCare America. No more excuses; it was time for an appointment. While, unfortunately, Genida did receive the diagnosis she feared—she would need surgery to remove cataracts in both eyes—the results were brilliant. The improvement in her vision was swift and dramatic. “I’d never had eye surgery before,” Genida said. “Before I knew it, it was over.”
Cataract Facts A cataract is when your eye’s natural lens becomes cloudy. People with cataracts describe it as looking through a foggy window; vision is blurred and colors are dulled. About half of all Americans over age 75 have cataracts. As you age, you’re increasingly likely to develop cataracts. Fortunately, cataracts are treatable. An ophthalmologist surgically removes the cloudy lens and replaces it with an artificial one. Cataract surgery is the most effective and most common procedure performed in all of medicine with some 3 million Americans choosing to have cataract surgery each year.

Congress Revisits The SALT Deduction
by Jon Coupal
As President Joe Biden and Congress push the next round of big tax hikes and spending bills, Californians will be hearing a great deal about the so-called “SALT” deduction. SALT stands for state and local taxes and, for many years prior to President Trump’s term in office, taxpayers could deduct those taxes from their federal tax returns without limitation. Then in 2017, Congress passed and the president signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. It limited the amount of state and local taxes that taxpayers could deduct to $10,000. In states with high state income tax rates and/or high property taxes, this meant there were many taxpayers who lost a valuable deduction and felt the full pain of the taxes imposed by their state and local governments. For Californians, ouch. Because California has the highest income tax rates in America, one of the few saving graces for high-income taxpayers has been the ability to deduct state taxes on one’s federal return. The fight over the ability to fully deduct state and local taxes has splintered the country. States with modest income tax rates, or no income tax at all, complained that their residents were essentially subsidizing residents of profligate, big-spending states. Republican members of Congress from high-tax states found themselves in a dilemma. Many supported the Trump tax reform even though it had the effect of raising taxes on their upper-income constituents. For some, that support may have cost them reelection, notwithstanding the fact that the tax reform bill led to record setting economic growth as well as record low unemployment. Even California’s economy exploded under the Trump presidency until the COVID-19 virus arrived on America’s soil. California’s political class, for the most part, chafed at Trump’s slap against high-tax blue states and has attempted to find a clever workaround to neuter
the loss of the SALT deduction. For example, immediately after passage of the tax reform law, California floated the idea of a semi-voluntary “charitable deduction” scheme to give highwealth Californians some relief. It would have created a “charitable” fund within the general fund so high-earning taxpayers could claim a deduction for “donating” the equivalent of what they owed in state taxes. But the IRS quickly shot down that idea. Whether individual states can find ways to negate the loss of the SALT deduction may be moot if Biden and Congress agree to restore the full SALT deduction as part of another reconciliation bill. (Reconciliation bills, to the extent they address only tax and spending issues, can bypass the 60-vote threshold generally required to advance legislation in the U.S. Senate). Such a bill could pass even without Republican support, as the $1.9 trillion COVID “rescue” bill just did. In late February, 11 Democratic members of Congress, including several from California, sent a letter to President Biden urging that he eliminate the cap on the SALT deduction. However, there are many Democrats who don’t want to bring back the unlimited SALT deduction even if they’re from high-tax states that would benefit. The reason is that the SALT deduction favors the rich far more than the middle class and working poor. The fissure within the Democratic Party over the SALT deduction reveals no small degree of hypocrisy. For all their complaining about “income inequality” and the need to look out for the little guy, California Democrats who want to help the rich are pushing the Biden administration to make full SALT deductibility a plank of his tax package. So grab some popcorn. For tax geeks, this is going to be interesting to watch. *** Jon Coupal is the president of Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

Consider yourself lucky to see a Toyota Mirai or any other “FCV” (fuel cell vehicle) out in the wild — there are only about 300 on the road in the U.S., with the vast majority of those in California. Credit: Aaron Smart, FlickrCC. Dear EarthTalk: What’s the latest on hydrogen powered fuel cells? Not long ago they were touted as the energy source of the future, but news has been scant of late. -- J. Gorman, Columbia, SC Indeed, around the turn of the millennium, the development of hydrogen fuel cells to power our transportation sector with renewable, non-polluting power was all the rage among environmentalists and techies alike. Fuel cells combine hydrogen and oxygen via an electrochemical reaction to make electricity, with water as the only “exhaust.” The first crude fuel cells were invented in England in the 1830s, but the technology really gained momentum in the 1960s when NASA developed them for the space program. Unlike traditional batteries, which need to be regularly recharged, fuel cells operate continuously as long as they have a steady supply of oxygen and hydrogen. Oxygen is available anywhere and anytime from the air around us. Hydrogen, though also one of the planet’s most common elements, isn’t easily separated from the compound molecules it is usually part of. So, either gasification or electrolysis are used to separate the hydrogen out. But this requires copious amounts of energy, which is most often derived from fossil fuel sources, calling into question just how sustainable fuel cells actually may be. Start-ups working on fuel cells for the auto industry (Ballard Power, Plug Power) became the darlings of investors in the 1990s and 2000s, but in the intervening two decades hybrids and EVs started to take over the auto sector instead of cars powered by hydrogen, and fuel cell makers shifted most of their attention to the aviation industry. So, what happened? Why aren’t we all driving around in fuel cell cars today? One major hurdle was the lack of a refueling infrastructure. Internal combustion cars and trucks (and hybrids) can get gasoline at just about every other corner and highway exit across the country. Meanwhile, EV drivers just need an electrical outlet, one of the most ubiquitous pieces of “infrastructure” in our world, to recharge their cars’ batteries for the next 80-200 miles. But if you do happen to drive one of the 300 fuel cell vehicles sold (or leased) in the U.S. in recent years—Toyota Mirai or Honda Clarity, to name a few, you’ll have to find a hydrogen refueling station to keep the road trip alive. And if you don’t live in California, home to 43 of the nation’s 48 hydrogen refueling stations thanks to the forward-looking state’s Clean Transportation Program, a fuel cell vehicle probably doesn’t make a lot of sense. While fuel cells may not have lived up to their initial hype as the future of the automotive transportation sector, they are playing an increasingly larger role in powering various aspects of the aviation and aerospace industries, where hydrogen production and refueling operations can be relatively centralized. Another growth area for fuel cells is stationary applications. Our existing natural gas distribution system could be modified to pipe hydrogen into our buildings to feed fuel cells to take care of our energy needs. While fuel cells alone may not be the answer to our environmental problems, they are proving to be one of the arrows in the quiver of those trying to be part of the solution.

Senator Jones. “Offering a convenient way to legally hunt and fish, get a full year’s worth out of the license” SACRAMENTO – A measure by Senator Brian W. Jones (R-Santee) to create a combination hunting/fishing license option for recreationalists passed its first committee test with a strong bipartisan vote. Jones’s Senate Bill 470 would specifically do the following, beginning in 2024: Allow Californians and non-residents to purchase a combined hunting/fishing license rather than having to purchase both licenses separately – many outdoor recreationalists in California engage in both sports and a combined license would be more convenient and lower administrative costs of the state; and Make the newly created combination license valid for 365 days from the date of purchase – currently California hunting and fishing licenses expire on December 31 of the year purchased, regardless of the date purchased; and Require the state to establish an optional automatic renewal and payment process for the combined license since California currently only allows auto renewal for fishing licenses. “Other nearby states including Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon already offer combination hunting/fishing licenses which have proved popular and have helped introduce new people to both sports,” said Senator Brian W. Jones. “Offering a convenient way to legally hunt and fish, get a full year’s worth out of the license, and automatically renew the license in California makes
Tankless Water Heaters Poised As Top 2021 Home Improvement Trend (BPT) - You're likely thinking of improvements from a new perspective after spending more time at home or renovation ideas after recently purchasing a home. Because spaces are being utilized in different ways and utilities are getting used more frequently, you want smart upgrades that make life easier and more convenient. That's why tankless water heaters are gaining popularity: These modern systems make your home more comfortable, save space, lower costs and provide eco-friendly benefits. Traditional versus tankless A cold shower. Washing your hands in a chilly stream from the faucet. Having to wait to do dishes because there's no more hot water. The problem with traditional water heaters is they have a holding tank that heats a specific amount of water. When that water is not being used, it sits there being heated, which wastes energy. On the flip side, when in use, when the hot water is gone, it's gone. It doesn't matter if you're mid-shower, midbath or mid-laundry load. A tankless water heater solves these problems, making it both a logical and luxurious home improvement. Tankless water heaters are popular in homes throughout Europe, plus they are commonly used in spas or other facilities in the U.S. due to the benefits of on-demand and endless hot water. They are slowly gaining popularity in U.S. homes as Americans are becoming more energyconscious and discovering the many efficient advantages over conventional types of water heating. Top reasons to go tankless The pandemic has people researching new solutions to their household issues, which is why many are learning about the numerous benefits of tankless water heaters and making the switch. Here are some of the top reasons why this option is sense all around. This will allow even more people to enjoy our state’s great outdoors more often.” SB 470 is a bipartisan measure coauthored by Senators Dave Cortese (D-San Jose), Brian Dahle (R-Bieber), Bill Dodd (D-Napa), and Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita). It is sponsored by the California Waterfowl Association and supported by a diverse coalition of outdoor recreation, hunting, and fishing organizations. SB 470 goes next to the Senate Appropriations Committee for hearing. Senator Brian W. Jones was elected to the California State Senate in 2018 representing the 38th Senate District which includes Alpine, Escondido, Lemon Grove, El Cajon, La Mesa, Santee, Poway, San Marcos, Lakeside, Valley Center, Rancho Santa Fe, Julian, Ramona, Rancho San Diego, Bonsall, Fallbrook, Borrego Springs, and parts of the City of San Diego.
trending for 2021: Efficient and environmentally friendly: Tankless heaters flashheat water when you need it, and turn off as soon as you turn off the faucet or shower. That means water is heated instantly and heated only when you need it. Tankless heaters are designed to save energy, which saves you money and protects the environment. For example, Thermalux tankless water heaters, on average, help reduce up to 118,000 tons of CO2 emissions a year. Constant hot water without the waste: With a tankless water heater, you get to enjoy an endless stream of hot water because it's heated through a compact yet powerful system that mounts on a wall. Once the demand for hot water no longer exists, the tankless water heater automatically shuts down and stops using energy. Choose the right size tankless and you'll always have hot water when your family needs it. Small size equals significant space savings: Usually about the size of a carry-on luggage bag, tankless water heaters can help you reclaim space compared with large tank-type heaters. These compact systems can be conveniently located in a utility room, garage, attic, basement or closet.
Cleaner water: Traditional tank water heaters can build rust and sediment inside the tank after years of use. This material can end up in the water that you use in your home. Since tankless options do not store water and heat it only on demand, you get fresh, clean water every time without worries of sediment. Growing accessibility: Getting a tankless water heater is now as easy as going online to Amazon or Home Depot, where Thermalux tankless water heaters are readily available for immediate purchase. Learn more at thermalux.com. Then find an installer and upgrade your system before your old one goes out. Lower costs: The upfront cost of getting a tankless can be defrayed thanks to possible local, state and federal tax credits. Check out energystar. gov for more information. Once installed, a tankless will help lower your energy bills, helping you to further save money. Finally, tankless water heaters have double the lifespan of their tank-style counterparts, which significantly impacts savings over time. With new demands on a home's comfort and its systems, a tankless water heater is a smart investment that will pay off for years to come.

She was amazed at how simple it was to set up the initial eye exam with EyeCare America and at how quickly her vision was restored. “Reading the eye chart was so bad at first,” recalls Genida. She could just barely read the last two lines of the eye chart during her initial eye exam with her ophthalmologist, Douglas Wilson, M.D. The day after surgery, Genida was able to read the whole way through the chart, top to bottom. “Dr. Wilson asked me, ‘Are you sure you couldn’t see before?!’ and I said, ‘Yes, I’m positive!’ It was amazing.” Proof of her quick recovery was evident at the bowling alley, where Genida didn’t miss one

Radishes are packed with fiber, have a low glycemic index, are high in potassium and help with the treatment and prevention of disorders of the liver, stomach, gall bladder, kidneys and urinary tract. Radishes also function as a diuretic and a type of detergent and disinfectant for the body by washing away toxins gathered in the kidneys, purifying the blood and stimulating bile production to relieve constipation. This is particularly important for the treatment of jaundice. Radishes, especially the leaves and bulbs of the black radish, reduce red blood cell distribution, which occurs in people who suffer from jaundice, by increasing the fresh oxygen supply to the blood. Another way to reap the health benefits of radishes is to pass the leaves and bulb through a juicer and drink the juice. Radish juice is a natural way to reduce fevers and help prevent inflammation and burning sensations in the digestive and urinary tract, and infections of the kidney and immune system by removing excess toxins. If you’re only using spring radishes as part of a salad or a decorative garnish, and you’ve never tried the wide varieties and flavors that radishes impart to everything from pesto to stir fries and roasting, you’re missing out on indulging in both the nutritional benefits and the flavors of this overlooked tuber. RADISH GREENS AND MUSHROOM TOAST WITH FETA CHEESE Move over, avocado toast! This flavorful recipe is the perfect showcase for radishes and can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a light supper. You can experiment with any type of radish that is in season with delicious results. 1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon salt

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) It isn't always easy for the rambunctious Aries to give a second thought to their often spur-of-the-moment choices. But aspects favor rechecking a decision before declaring it final. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Information emerges for the business-driven Bovine who feels ready to restart a stalled project. Be prepared to make adjustments as needed at any time during the process. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Part of you wants to complete plans for an upcoming event, while your other self wants to see how things develop first. Compromise by moving ahead with your plans while being open to change. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An unexpected change in a relationship could open up a problem or could lead to a much-needed and toolong-delayed reassessment of a number of matters. The choice is yours to make. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Time for the Lion to total the plusses and minuses resulting from recent personal and/or professional decisions. See what worked, what didn't and why, and base your next big move on the results. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The clever Virgo can make persuasion work by presenting a case built on hard facts. Sentiment might touch the heart, but it's good, solid information that invariably wins the day. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You usually can win over the
most stubborn skeptics on your own. But this time you can benefit from supporters who have been there, done that and are willing to speak up on your behalf. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You win admiration for your determination to do the right thing. Don't be distracted from that course, despite the offer of tempting alternatives that might suddenly turn up. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) While you still need to maintain control of a dominant situation, a new development emerges, making the task easier and the outcome potentially more rewarding. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) New factors might have a positive effect on a stillpending matter, but only if the information proves to be credible. Trusted colleagues might be able to offer needed advice. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) The week favors moderation, especially if a health problem is involved. Resist the impulse to do more than might be good for you at this time. You can catch up later. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You could feel more than a mite upset by someone or some people who might be creating problems for you. Find out why they won't change their ways. Their reasons might surprise you. BORN THIS WEEK: You know how to inspire others to do their best by setting a persuasive example of your own.

How to Make A Hybrid Workforce Successful
(StatePoint) With metrics for COVID-19 improving, many companies are starting to consider returning to work in person. But most employees and employers agree it won’t look like it did before. Indeed, research shows a large chunk of companies today are sizing their physical offices down, as more people work from home all the time or part of the week. And hybrid offices, arrangements where team members are in two or three days a week and work remotely the rest of the time, seem to be the wave of the future. However, experts say that business owners and managers should not approach hybrid offices the same way they do completely remote set-ups. “While there are very specific benefits to hybrid offices, they come with their own set of challenges,” says Michele Havner, director of marketing at Eturi, the maker of Motiv, a recently-introduced app that small- and mid-sized business owners are using to improve productivity. Motiv is a mobile dashboard that delivers important productivity metrics to CEOs, managers and leaders. The tool’s reporting focuses on providing conference call activity and email summaries and integrates with Google Workspace and Microsoft 365, with many additional integrations and features slated for future release. Havner says that such tools function as a virtual corner office vantage point, helping to smooth out communication, collaboration and workflow issues created by hybrid arrangements and decentralized workspaces. Equally important to communication is simply being mindful that hybrid offices can cause challenging dynamics among team members. Taking steps to address those issues preemptively can save headaches down the line. This includes making everyone accountable for meeting goals and deadlines. It might also mean offering the same perks to in-office and work-from-home staffers, while giving those who come into a centralized workspace the same level of flexibility remote work affords. Easily adopted by small- and medium-sized businesses, which have been underserved by existing productivity solutions, Motiv is available through the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. To learn more, visit motivapp.com. While hybrid offices can ultimately reduce costs and help keep employees healthy and safe, business owners will need to stay flexible and keep their workforce focused. Leveraging tools that facilitate hybrid work situations will be a key to success for companies as they move forward.
