Burnout, stress lead more companies to try a four-day work week

Work four days a week, but get paid for five? It sounds too good to be true, but companies around the world that have cut their work week have found that it leads to higher productivity, more motivated staff and less burnout. «It is much healthier and we do a better job if we're not working crazy hours,» said Jan Schulz-Hofen, founder of Berlin-based project management software company Planio, who introduced a four-day week to the company's 10-member staff earlier this year. In New Zealand, trust company Perpetual Guardian reported a fall in stress and a jump in staff engagement after it tested a 32-hour week earlier this year. Even in Japan, the government is encouraging companies to allow Monday mornings off, although other schemes in the workaholic country to persuade employees to take it easy have had little effect. Britain's Trades Union Congress (TUC) is pushing for the whole country to move to a four-day week by the end of the century, a drive supported by the opposition Labour party. The TUC argues that a shorter week is a way for workers to share in the wealth generated by new technologies like machine learning and robotics, just as they won the right to the weekend off...

Automakers denounce 'unrealistic' EU emissions targets

German and other European automakers warned on Tuesday that EU plans to slash carbon dioxide emissions from new cars and vans by 2030 are «totally unrealistic» without a network to recharge electric cars and more effort to retrain workers. European Union countries and the European Parliament agreed in principle on Monday to require new cars in 2030 to emit 37.5 percent less carbon dioxide on average compared to 2021 while van emissions will have to drop 31 percent. Ambassadors from EU countries are to expected to endorse the deal in Brussels on Wednesday -- a deal officials touted as advancing the bloc's efforts to meet commitments under the Paris climate accord. But carmakers in Europe, particularly in industry powerhouse Germany, complained the new curbs were not well thought through. «This new regulation demands too much and offers too little incentive,» said Bernhard Mattes, head of the German carmakers' federation VDA. With tougher measures than other parts of the world, he warned, «the European automobile industry will find itself heavily penalised in international competition.» Mattes argued that EU regulators failed to take into account market conditions, saying ordinary...

Two women get suspended jail term for cultivation, possession of cannabis

Two Spanish women who admitted to cultivating and importing cannabis to sustain their personal use of the drug, were each handed a suspended jail sentence during an arraignment which brought into contrast Maltese and Spanish law on the subject. Olga Moran Matia, 27, and Miriam Ruiz Itturbe, 31, both admitted to cultivating a cannabis plant, importing cannabis resin and cannabis possession. Prosecuting Inspector Frank Anthony Tabone explained how the women, who have been in Malta for the past year, were heavy cannabis users. A just-sprouted plant had been found at their home, together with some 19 grams of cannabis resin, one gram short of the 20 gram legal limit applicable back in their homeland. “In Spain they may keep up to 20 grams and cultivate up to two plants,” Inspector Tabone told the court, presided by Magistrate Donatella Frendo Dimech. “However in Malta, even one plant is against the law.” He said the prosecution was not insisting on an effective jail term in this case. In the light of these circumstances, the court declared the accused guilty upon their own admission and handed each a one-year jail term suspended for two years. It also ordered the confiscation and...

Genoa chooses Renzo Piano design for new bridge

Authorities in Genoa on Tuesday chose a design by Italy's most famous living architect Renzo Piano for a bridge to replace the Morandi overpass which collapsed in August, killing 43 people and injuring dozens. Piano, 81, who is originally from Genoa, had submitted a proposal in September for the new bridge. «This will last for a 1,000 years and will be built of steel,» he said then. It will «have elements of a boat because that is something from Genoa,» he explained, adding that it would be a streamlined and luminous white structure. «We have asked the architect Renzo Piano to oversee the project to ensure that the original idea is respected,» said Marco Bucci, the mayor of the northern port city. The contract was awarded to a consortium of three Italian construction companies, Salini Impregilo, Fincantieri and Italferr. Their proposal is based on an idea donated free of charge by Piano, whose notable works include the Pompidou Centre in Paris, along with British architect Richard Rogers, and the new Palais de Justice in the French capital. He also designed Malta's parliament building. The new bridge is estimated to cost 202 million euros.
