Santa Cruz’s COVID-19 Indoor Exposure Risk; Latest Case Count

SANTA CRUZ, CA — As the holiday season kicks off and officials warn residents about limiting their interactions with others outside of their own household to curb the spread of the coronavirus, a tool developed by researchers from several universities lets you see your risk of exposure to the virus at an indoor gathering.

The tool shows the estimated chance — between 0 and 100 percent — that you’ll encounter at least one person with the coronavirus at an event in your county. You can reduce the risk by wearing a mask, distancing and gathering outdoors in smaller groups, researchers said.

As of Tuesday, if you were to attend an event with at least 15 people in Santa Cruz County, there’s an 18 percent chance that someone in the group could expose you to the virus, according to the COVID-19 Risk Assessment Planning Tool. If your gathering has 10 people,

Count Your Business Blessings, There’s Actually A Lot To Be Grateful For This Thanksgiving

CEO and founder of Grokker, the on-demand well-being engagement solution, personalized to match employees’ needs and abilities.

2020 has been one of the most stressful years in modern history, but instead of cataloging its challenges — and there have been many — let’s take a few moments to bask in the silver lining and the albeit mixed blessings the year has produced, specifically for employees and their employers.

This Too Shall Pass — And Strengthen Us.

Everything we’ve experienced this past year has given us the gift of resilience, a gift that’s as valuable to a business as it is to its employees. Research examined by Harvard Business Review shows that those who are the most intimately exposed to suffering benefit from higher resilience levels, and — specifically for the workforce — the more changes one absorbs, such as layoffs or furloughs, sheltering in place and change in

what’s the best way to conduct Australia’s Great Koala Count?

Federal environment minister Sussan Ley this week announced A$2 million for a national audit of Australia’s koalas, as part of an A$18 million package to protect the vulnerable species.


The funding might seem like a lot—and, truth be told, it is more than most threatened species receive. But the national distribution of koalas is vast, so the funding equates to about A$1.40 to survey a square kilometre. That means the way koalas are counted in the audit must be carefully considered.

Koalas are notoriously difficult to detect, and counts so far have been fairly unreliable. That can make it hard to get an accurate picture of how koalas are faring, and to know where intensive conservation effort is needed—especially after devastating events such as last summer’s bushfires.

Methods for counting koalas range from the traditional—people at ground level looking up into the trees—to the high-tech, such

‘Don’t count out technology,’ even as value stocks start to stage a comeback, says Oppenheimer’s strategy chief

  • With positive COVID-19 vaccine news lifting value stocks related to the reopening trade, technology stocks have underperformed.
  • In fact, since September 23, value stocks have outperformed growth stocks across all market cap segments, according to a Monday note from Oppenheimer.
  • Technology investors should stay calm, as the underperformance of growth stocks over the past couple months likely has to do with a potential tax-hike under a Biden administration, the note said.
  • “Interest rates are likely to remain low for the intermediate term suggesting that growth will retain its attraction for investors,” Oppenheimer’s Chief Investment Strategist John Stoltzfus said.
