Germany plans to unveil draft legislation that would give workers the legal right to work from home, Labor Minister Hubertus Heil told the Financial Times. U.S. carriers American Airlines Group Inc. and United Airlines Holdings Inc. will start laying off a combined 32,000 workers as the companies contend with the unprecedented collapse in travel demand caused by the pandemic.

Japan’s ruling party will consider additional economic stimulus to prop up the economy amid the pandemic, even as a Bank of Japan survey found sentiment at large manufacturers had improved, signaling the worst of the economic impact may be over. Officials indicated an early election was unlikely with the government prioritizing the pandemic response.

Construction update for June 2020

Rifle Citizen Telegram flag graphic

The city of Rifle is slated to start several projects which will begin this month and carry through the summer.

Waterproofing project: The Ute Theater Foundation will dig up the existing foundation of the Ute Theater and waterproof the concrete to stop leaks. High ground water levels in the past have caused drywall and carpet damage in the Ute Theater. The project funded by a Garfield County Federal Mineral Lease Grant will stop continuous repair of the changing rooms within the theater, and will be completed by mid-June.

Road rebuilding and pedestrian improvements: A rebuilding project will improve the failing Fravert Boulevard and West Fifth to Fairway Avenue. A continuous sidewalk will be added up the hill to Fairway Avenue to provide a safe pedestrian corridor.  The project will begin mid-June and continue throughout the summer; 60% of this project’s funding came from the Garfield County Mineral Lease Grant.

Margaret Josephs’ home renovation has been a long, slow process — and “the Marge” won’t let her contractor husband, Joe, forget it. With her New Jersey manse still a work in progress, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member has taken playful jabs at her husband at every turn.

For example: “[The house] is not even close to done, I’m still living in my closet,” she told BravoTV.com back in 2018. “When you’re sleeping with the contractor and you’re the girlfriend, you get a lot done. When you’re married to the contractor you get sh-t done.”

Lately, however, Margaret has shared some more hopeful updates about the big renovation. In August, she took to Instagram to announce that

U.S. Tops 7 Million; Nursing Home Managers Charged: Virus Update

(Bloomberg) — The number of U.S. coronavirus cases rose above 7 million, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Virginia’s governor tested positive, days after Missouri’s governor was also diagnosed with the infection.

In the first case of its kind in the U.S., Massachusetts is charging the former managers of a veteran’s home where 76 people died of the virus. Florida’s governor is lifting capacity restrictions on restaurants.

London was added to a watchlist of potential pandemic hot spots. Spain’s government asked for restrictions on movement to extend across the entire city of Madrid. The Netherlands, Greece, Denmark and Poland are also grappling with extending or imposing new restrictions.

Android TV Android 11 update to bring speed, gamepad improvements

Even compared to Android Auto, Android’s TV incarnation hasn’t exactly been getting much attention, especially from Google itself. The past months, however, have been particularly interesting, especially with rumors around Google’s first Android TV dongle. As if heralding the arrival of that “Sabrina” device, Google has now announced the Android 11 update for Android TV, promising to bring a handful of improvements that will hopefully prepare the platform for the future.

With so many smart TV platforms out there, including those from Samsung (Tizen), LG (webOS), and Apple (tvOS), it isn’t really that surprising that Android TV hasn’t exactly caught on. Aside from access to streaming apps, which other platforms and set-top boxes also have, Android TV may not look like it has much else to offer. Of course, you have access to some popular Android apps but viewing them on a larger screen might not exactly be that attractive.

Horizon Zero Dawn’s latest PC update offers even more improvements to gameplay and performance

It’s only been just over a week since Guerrilla Games’ previous update to Horizon Zero Dawn on PC, but those plucky Dutch go-getters are right back at it again with yet another magic bag of tweaks, fixes, and updates. Announced earlier today in a Reddit post, the update – which is available right now – aims to address ‘additional crashes’, add controller rumble toggle, and offer the option to display black side bars in cinematics when playing in ultrawide.

The previous patch targeted some significant crash issues, like the game occasionally crashing when players tried to create a new save when their save slots were full up. This latest patch seems to focus on other specific but notably common issues, such as Aloy’s hair not displaying correctly with the game running above 30fps.

Other notable fixes include fixes to flickering textures in snowy environments, resolution fixes when changing from windowed
