MILAN Italian eyewear maker Luxottica will give employees a monitor that alerts them if they are not respecting social distancing rules and keeps track of contacts with people potentially at risk of coronavirus infection, it said on Thursday.The maker of Ray Ban, Oakley and Persol sunglasses, which merged with French group Essilor in 2018 to create EssilorLuxottica, will trial the electronic device at its main Agordo plant in the Veneto region in the next few days.It is part of a prevention program that includes extensive testing of workers and their family members which will be extended to other production sites and offices of the Italian group founded by billionaire tycoon Leonardo Del Vecchio. The firm employs 80,000 people.The device, similar to an electronic badge which workers can carry with their routine access card, is equipped with a sensor that produces a sound alert if workers stay less than 1.5 meters apart.Employees will be identified by an encrypted code and their data collected by a central database which will keep track of people contacts so that, in the event of a worker testing positive, colleagues can be alerted and tested too.Andrea Crisanti, a professor of microbiology at Padua University who is working with Luxottica on the program, said he hoped the new system would help detect potentially infectious workers with no symptoms.The trial is one of a number of initiatives companies across the world are introducing to try to keep their employees safe as lockdowns to contain the pandemic are gradually eased.

Although I personally disagreed with both decisions, the Twins were ultimately proven correct in these decisions.

The three men who were responsible for the creation of the “Miracle Hospital” worked hard to get everything ready and off the ground. Two Hickory architects were consulted and enlisted to design additions to the existing building. Literally within hours work began.
2) Check on eBay to see how much you may be able to get for a teddy bear you want to sell. The way to check prices is to find items that have recently sold, NOT to go by what teddy bears that are currently for sale are listed for. Anyone can list a teddy bear at any price they want on eBay, but that doesn’t mean the teddy bear will sell for that price.
