Facebook Wants To Create A Global Currency
For years Wall Street’s magnates have worried that Silicon Valley’s giants will shake up finance. Facebook thinks it has found a way. It will launch a digital currency, the Libra, in 2020. Mark Zuckerberg’s firm has failed before to popularise a payments service. And it is an unlikely guardian of other peoples’ money, given its habit of privacy abuses and evasion. But like or loathe the company, its new scheme has legs. The Libra’s value will be pegged to a basket of major currencies, it will be able to handle large transaction volumes and 28 other big firms say they will join a consortium backing the currency. If Facebook’s 2.4bn users adopt Libra to shop and transfer money, it could become one of the world’s biggest financial entities. That would herald a consumer revolution—but could also make the financial system less stable and reduce governments’ economic sovereignty.https://www.economist.com/leaders/2019/06/22/facebook-wants-to-create-a-global-currency?fsrc=scn/fb/te/bl/ed/facebookwantstocreateaglobalcurrencyweighinglibrainthebalance&fbclid=IwAR2QW5QYgcWQS0YVGVPpNQC2e3XLsiRtXOMBwKIN9d0zISKNoutG3toitLs

Women Unite To Share Personal Stories Of Baby Loss
Women have come together to share their own personal stories of baby loss after Hollyoaks actress Kirsty-Leigh Porter announced the devastating news that her daughter was stillborn. An estimated one in eight pregnancies end in miscarriage and nine babies every day are lost to stillbirth in the UK. Despite these figures, it's still rare to see so many women talking so openly about the heartbreak and the pain they - and their partners - endured after losing their child.

Reason Why You Always Get Sick During Time Off
You might be in a state of bliss when you’re on vacation, but chances are the days leading up to it are anything but. Maybe you’re putting in long hours at work to prep for the days you’ll be out of the office. Or perhaps you’re skipping the gym to do laundry so you’re not visiting home with a suitcase of dirty clothes. These behaviours can throw your body ― and your immune system ― out of whack, according to Dr Edo Paz, a physician for K Health, a primary care app, and clinical director at Heartbeat Health, a cardiovascular centre in New York. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/why-you-get-sick-on-vacation_n_5c2ce145e4b0407e908734fd?0wk=&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=women_fb&ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000046&utm_campaign=hp_fb_pages&fbclid=IwAR2xGtjMxgrku_0q7jD-K_kIURgj6Zx6jgEl7-Dg_oJH_ETHSqXAb1v7HZ4

New Zealand firm adopts its 4-day working week
The New Zealand firm that trialled a four-day working week has now confirmed it will adopt the measure on a permanent basis. The will-writing company Perpetual Guardian carried out an eight week trial earlier this year, giving their 200 or so employees an extra day off every week, while all pay and employment conditions remained unchanged. Academics who studied the trial reported lower stress levels, higher levels of job satisfaction and an improved sense of work-life balance. Critically, they also say workers were 20% more productive.https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2018/07/working-fewer-hours-makes-you-productive-new-zealand-trial
