Traveling and COVID-19: Tips for Staying Safe

Wynd Blog – 7.29.20 (7.27.20)

Since March, the majority of the country has been under strict stay-at-home orders, preventing many from taking their much anticipated spring break trips, Memorial Day getaways, and summer excursions. The outbreak of novel coronavirus has had an unprecedented impact on the travel industry: flights have been cancelled, hotel rooms refunded, and people have been staying home social distancing. Travel numbers are slowly rising however. According to one COVID-19 travel study40% of travelers surveyed indicated the likelihood of taking a domestic leisure trip with the next six months and 64% said they would be booking a leisure trip within the next six months. With a renewed interest in travel, comes an increase in necessary safety precautions.

A comprehensive checklist for privacy-savvy parents

Avast Blog – 7.29.20 (7.24.20)

We often teach our children the lessons that we learned ourselves when we were little…

  • Look both ways before crossing the street.
  • Don’t talk to strangers.
  • Wash your hands before eating (true these days now more than ever).

Most of these lessons are about protecting our kids. But today as parents, we have a vast new world to explain and protect our kids from—one that our parents never had to worry about: The internet.

A year of work on the Bay Area’s housing and homeless crises

Google Blog – 7.29.20 (7.23.20)

Today, we’re marking the one-year anniversary of our Bay Area housing commitment. Since last year, we’ve met with hundreds of advocates, developers and community leaders to understand how to quickly create affordable housing and support solutions to homelessness. In the Bay area, there’s a severe housing shortage of nearly 500,000 affordable units and the  homelessness crisis affects around 35,000 people. So we focused our efforts on two areas: grants to assist people experiencing homelessness and investments to produce more affordable housing.
