Australia's Victoria posts slight rise in Covid-19 cases

SYDNEY (REUTERS) – Australia’s second-most populous state Victoria on Friday (June 4) reported a slight rise in new locally acquired Covid-19 cases as state capital Melbourne began an extended snap lockdown imposed to contain its latest virus outbreak.

Victorian authorities on Wednesday extended the lockdown in Melbourne for another week until June 10 but eased some curbs elsewhere in the state.

Four new locally acquired cases were reported on Friday, versus three a day earlier, taking the total infections to 65 in the latest outbreak.

Apple Mandates That Employees Must Come Back To The Office Three Days Per Week As Of September

The work-from-home era for Apple employees is mostly ending. CEO Tim Cook sent out an email today telling his staff that they will return to the office three days a week starting in early September.

“For all that we’ve been able to achieve while many of us have been separated, the truth is that there has been something essential missing from this past year: each other,” CEO Tim Cook said in an email to employees that was obtained by The Verge. “Video conference calling has narrowed the distance between us, to be sure, but there are things it simply cannot replicate.”

The olive branch extended in the new provisions are that employees have the option to work remotely two weeks out of the year.

Returning to work is becoming an issue for many companies. Facebook and Twitter, to cite two examples, have said employees can work from home forever. And Coinbase, the crypto exchange, is doing away with a headquarters in order to totally decentralize its team.

However, Crain’s Chicago reports that some employees are quitting rather than surrending their new-found freedoms.

MLB informs owners of increased crackdown on pitchers using foreign substances

Major League Baseball informed owners Thursday that it is engaged in the next phase of league-directed enforcement banning the use of foreign substances by pitchers — which would include 10-day suspensions — two persons with direct knowledge of the meeting told USA TODAY Sports.

The persons spoke on the condition of anonymity because MLB has yet to formally announce how they will vigilantly enforce the rule, but it is expected to take place before the July 13 All-Star Game in Denver.

One potential solution, one person said, is to instruct the umpiring crew to check the glove, cap and uniform of every pitcher who enters the game. If a foreign substance is found, the pitcher would be required to get a new cap or glove, as in the case last week when crew chief Joe West ordered St. Louis Cardinals reliever Giovanny Gallegos to remove his cap when he entered the game against the Chicago Cubs. Gallegos was permitted to stay in the game.

Yet, if a pitcher is caught using foreign substances after being checked, he would automatically receive a 10-game suspension.
