According to a recent report by StudyFinds.org, four out of five parents are considering homeschooling their kids for the upcoming school year. Of those 2,000 parents surveyed, nearly half note that they are seriously considering implementing remote learning instruction from home in 2020 and 2021. One-fourth of parents surveyed revealed that they will not allow their children in a classroom.

As the COVID-19 crisis continues, families are fearful. The prospect of a "new normal" during these uncertain times calls for precautionary measures to limit the spread of infection and to keep children, parents, and teachers alike safe and healthy. As public schools begin to reveal what a return to classrooms may look like, many parents feel uneasy about children returning to school and have pre-emptively opted to transition to a homeschool model. Parents surveyed explain that equipping children for each school day will require more time and preparation (i.e., ensuring that kids are provided with adequate face coverings, outfitting them with antibacterial hygiene products). Many also feel that the pandemic protocols, including social distancing, would take the focus away from learning, and escalate stress for school-age children.

In response to parental concerns, many schools have begun implementing flexible instruction methods, namely via virtual learning. Parents will have to start outfitting their homes with a remote classroom conducive to effective learning. However, it begs the question, are parents and students prepared?

According to Verizon's "2019 Data Breach Investigations Report," 36% of data breaches are committed by insiders. Insiders are responsible for 54% of incidents in the healthcare industry and 34% in the public sector. The most recent prominent example is Twitter. Unknown persons have hacked numerous Twitter accounts of celebrities. Via the Twitter profiles of former U.S. president Barack Obama, presidential candidate Joe Biden and Amazon boss Jeff Bezos and many others, the hackers spread advertising for dubious crypto-currency deals. Accounts of companies like Apple and Uber were also affected. The magazine "Vice" reported shortly after the incident that a Twitter insider was responsible for the hack. With the SECURE BOARD 1.0, CHERRY has a solution in its portfolio that effectively tackles problems such as the one suspected here from the hardware side.

Who would have thought at the beginning of the year that many of us would be working from home at this time? Although some, especially freelancers, are already familiar with home office, the Corona crisis is forcing a lot of people into unfamiliar ground. But gradually, employees and supervisors are getting used to the new situation and they are realizing that there is no lack of morale or quality within one' s own four walls - on the contrary, the productivity of colleagues tends to be higher in the home office.

The current situation, in my opinion, will lead many companies to rethink their remote work policies after the crisis, opening up many new opportunities for employees and employers. Germany is now once again discussing the idea of the right to a home office. But what does this mean for companies and employees?

It's a new experience for most of us. Because of Covid-19, we are sheltering in place and working from home, day after day. There are some advantages, unless commuting to and from the office was the highlight of your day. But there are plenty of challenges, too. Watching the kids while remaining productive is not easy. It's more difficult to stay in close touch with team members to keep ideas flowing and projects moving. Staying in shape and looking good for those video conferences requires determination. And the aches and strains of makeshift home offices can be a pain in the back, shoulders, wrists, and more.

But don't worry, stay-at-home-office-workers. CHERRY is here for you! As a world-class designer, manufacturer and source of computer keyboards, mice and other computer input devices, we believe in the future of the office—whether it's at home or somewhere else. So, here are ideas we've CHERRY-picked for the home-bound, tethered, tired and toiling among us.

If you think only of strangely curved keyboards when it comes to ergonomics, you know nothing (or only a small part of the truth). From CHERRY's point of view, a tested safety mark (GS / Geprüfte Sicherheit) is an important indicator of an ergonomic keyboard. Keyboards with this test mark meet the requirements of all relevant DIN standards. This ensures that key sizes, key spacing, key arrangement, labelling, surface finish, etc. comply with the recommendations of the German Institute for Standardization.

In a report published on The Huffington Post, the humble PC keyboard was found to be the second dirtiest office item, just behind the electronic ID badge. Swabbed to find colony-forming units (CFU) per square inch and then sent to a lab for testing, they had 20,598 times more bacteria than a toilet seat, and the most common bacteria identified was one found in pneumonia….yuck.

So, what can you do to protect your keyboard from all this dirt, grime, and bacterial deposit?
