How to Save Yourself from Becoming Hunched Over: Ergonomics in the Covid-19 Era

By Teresa Bruno

Have you ever heard of the Concept of Creep? I didn’t, until I was speaking to my physical therapist recently. It not only sounds scary, it is scary. In plain english, the concept follows: the hours we spend sitting in front of our computers or hunched over our iPhones can permanently deform us. 

Posture is more important than ever in the era of covid-19. We spend extended periods of time at home, attending school in front of our computers or worse, we work from home and then “go to class” in front of our computers. Without a commute or with a limited commute to work or school, we take less steps.…

Remember life before zoom? We were students then, in the classic way, unfettered from our small laptop screens. We interacted with each other like students, too. This is before we were all reduced to the confines of our individual, tiny, Brady Bunch boxes. 

We are still students, of course, but those were the halcyon days when we were free. Free to mingle and to meet and to have unmuffled class discussions. A time when campus was teeming with events and happy hours.

J.P. Eggers talks Stern’s Covid response with The Oppy

Over the past six months, the COVID-19 Pandemic has irrevocably altered and destabilized the world we live in. While the obvious consequences are the most tragic — hundreds of thousands of deaths, and millions of illnesses the world over — literally no corner of the globe has been free of its impact.

Wow! What about interns? 

Take my experience: nine weeks, 20-some interns (mostly undergrads, those poor rising seniors), and lots of Webex. My hopes for virtual anything were burning a little thin by the end of our Zoom semester, but it was, all things considered, a great summer. I applaud the organization and so many others for rising to the occasion and trying to keep some semblance of our internship experience.…

How to Eat Healthy During Zoom Calls When You Have No Time While Supporting a Black Owned Business

By Kyu Kim

There are numerous ways to contribute to the Black Lives Matter movement, but sometimes it feels difficult to juggle the recommended actions with work and home responsibilities. No matter how much we do for the movement, it never feels like enough and making true progress seems dismal at times.

Instead of getting discouraged, though, why don’t we refuel ourselves with healthy and yummy food that also supports the black community? Your decreased enthusiasm might just be a symptom of low blood sugar! Besides, there are fabulous products created by black entrepreneurs which should be celebrated for their own merits.…
