The Office of the Future Is Greener, More Social, and Might Even Include Childcare

Business leaders and architects are hoping innovative designs will add greater value to both workplaces and employees’ lives Before the pandemic struck, Lucy Jefferson spent nearly £50 ($57) a day commuting from London, where she had moved in 2019, to Birmingham, England where she worked as a product manager at a large U.K. bank. Although it was Jefferson’s choice to relocate 125 miles away, she believed that the 5 a.m. starts and two-and-a-half journey weren’t necessary for her to do her job well. She says the workplace culture encouraged employees to always “look busy” in the office. ”Classic corporate culture.” When a U.K.-wide COVID-19 lockdown in 2020 forced her employer’s staff to work remotely, Jefferson was able to save time and money working from home. But, frustrated by her employer’s reluctance to guarantee the flexible work model would continue, Jefferson handed in her notice in November 2020. Fast forward nearly two years, she works full time running her own e-commerce brand, Bare Kind, and all of her six employees work remotely. “I haven’t looked back, it’s been amazing,” she says, citing benefits to her mental health—and her bank balance. [time-brightcove not-tgx=”true”] Jefferson says her former colleagues tell her it’s now much more common to work from home and as a result, the Birmingham office has lost its former buzz, with some floors no longer in use. This shift in office culture is in no way unique—offices in major U.S. cities are less than half as busy as they used to be, according to data from security provider Kastle Systems. The pandemic forced many companies to shift online, and some employees realized they preferred it. In the U.S., Australia, France, Germany, Japan, and the U.K, 18% of workers aren’t going into the office at all, according to a survey published in July by Future Forum, while patterns of hybrid working have become the norm for nearly half of the workforce. Meanwhile, business leaders have been twisting themselves in knots over the return of in-person work, which some argue promotes more productivity and collaboration. At times this has created tensions. Read More: Dropbox Tossed Out the Workplace Rulebook. Here’s How That’s Working The clash in priorities between employers and workers has come amid record resignations across the workforce around the world. In the U.S., around 4 million workers have been quitting their jobs every month since April 2021, with many citing workplace inflexibility as a key factor. But being in the office could make a difference to their careers. In response to a survey published last month by workplace platform Envoy, 96% of U.S. executives said they were more likely to notice the contribution of employees in the office. The conundrum for businesses has been getting workers to come back. Some industry leaders are viewing the pandemic disruption and shifting labor market as an opportunity to reconfigure workspaces in a way that prioritizes flexibility, wellbeing, and sustainability—and actually entices employees to travel in. The office may never dominate the world of white-collar work in the way it did pre-pandemic, but innovative designers and bosses are hoping it will add greater value to both their businesses and employees’ lives. Making workplaces “commute-worthy” While the new ways of working during the pandemic came as a shock to many businesses, global music streaming platform, Spotify, was well ahead of the curve. Just a month before the U.K. first went into lockdown in March 2020, Spotify unveiled its new London headquarters that would house hundreds of freshly hired employees and one of the company’s largest R&D hubs. Gone were the sea of desks typical of traditional office spaces. Instead, large booths, plush lounge spaces, production studios, and dedicated “listening rooms” gave the space, a “social club” feel, says Sonya Simmonds, Spotify’s global head of workspace design. Although employees initially couldn’t benefit from the new space—situated inside the Grade II listed Art Deco Adelphi Building in the heart of London—during the early months of the pandemic, the building was primed to cater to the blend of remote and in-person work on their return. Hufton+CrowSpotify’s London headquarters “We all felt disappointed not to use the new office and share the new spaces [during lockdown], particularly the stage and listening rooms with artists,” says Simmonds. As workers returned to the offices, it was set up to better suit their needs. Spaces dedicated to wellness provided a welcome getaway for workers dealing with the stresses of the pandemic, Simmonds says. “When we were allowed to return we really appreciated the wellbeing rooms.” The idea behind the space was “very much based on where we wanted to go in the future,” Simmonds says. In February 2021, Spotify announced a work from anywhere policy, a transition that she says was accelerated, not triggered, by the pandemic. Yet, the company found that staff were still choosing to travel to the London office—the huge variety of spaces within the building offered even greater flexibility than employees’ own homes. In a post-pandemic era, workplaces must be “commute-worthy” for remote workers, says Shane Kelly, principal director at London-based architecture firm TP Bennett, which designed Spotify’s London office. “It’s about creating buildings that offer really collaborative experiences, focused on community and amenity, that you don’t get when you’re engaging remotely,” he says. Following the success of the London HQ, Spotify rolled out the design concept across its global locations. Read More: How to Ask Your Employer if You Can Work Remotely Permanently Swiss furniture brand Vitra took the concept of work flexibility one step further, when in spring 2021 it filled its headquarters in Birsfelden, Switzerland with customizable fittings that allow for multiple office configurations. The company’s new range, dubbed “Club Office,” includes modular sofa systems, flexible partitions, and foldable desks that fit together like a puzzle, allowing teams to tailor the work set-up to a variety of needs, moods, and even locations. By letting employees use their own office as a “laboratory” for new design concepts, Club Office fostered flexibility within Vitra’s workforce, says the company’s chief executive, Nora Fehlbaum. “Environments shape our thoughts and feelings,” says Fehlbaum. “This environment signals to stay on your toes, be ready to move.” Fehlbaum hopes that Vitra’s products will make all workers feel connected to their office environments, even as their companies downsize or shift to co-working spaces. “The Club is the physical environment where a common mission and sense of belonging comes to life,” she says. Blending the office with the home Months of isolation during lockdowns around the world made workers appreciate the feeling of belonging to a team and connecting with colleagues—even when working remotely or from their homes. According to recent findings from the WFH research project, a monthly survey run jointly by the University of Chicago, Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University, the average professional spends more than 40% of their working day interacting with others. With this in mind, Edouard Bettencourt and Malik Lemseffer, founders of French-Moroccan architecture firm Studio BELEM, have focused on designing a space where workers could connect and interact with others within the comfort of their own homes. Their aula modula apartment block design—a Tetris-like system of cube-shaped units with sliding wall panels—incorporates the collaborative elements of an office environment in a residential setting. While the block hasn’t been built yet, the firm says it is in talks with various developers. Courtesy of Studio BELEMThe “aula modula” apartment block design by Studio BELEM With each block arranged around a sunny inner courtyard, the idea is that inhabitants would be encouraged to develop a sense of neighborly community, even while they work from home. “If you work remotely and just stay in your own flat or office all day, you’re going to go crazy not seeing anyone,” says Lemseffer. Creative shared spaces in the building, including shared terraces, co-working rooms, and roof tops, allow residents to network, brainstorm, and celebrate professional milestones—”all the things that can be a little bit harder to do remotely,” he says. At the same time, the architects were keen to contain the intimate living spaces and office units in different rings of the building, to allow residents to switch off from their work as they cross the physical boundary. The blurring of the home and work environment precipitated by the pandemic forced many businesses to accommodate the unique personal circumstances of each employee. One such accommodation was caregiving responsibilities, as workers had to juggle educating their children while schools were shut or caring for elderly or sick relatives. Research published in June by the Society for Human Research Management found that, even as the pandemic subsides, workers place increasing value on jobs that offer the flexibility to care for family members. Read More: The Dream of an ‘Internet Country’ That Would Let You Work From Anywhere Entrepreneur Keltse Bilbao recognized this need before the pandemic when, after relocating to Los Angeles with her husband, she struggled to find a space where she could work on her own projects while being close to her daughter. In 2018, she founded Big and Tiny, a daycare service that provides on-site co-working spaces for parents—one of the first to do so in the U.S. “As a parent, what I wanted was the option to choose,” Bilbao says. “I could spend all day working, or I could have a break and be close to my child.” Big and Tiny has three studios in the U.S.—two in Santa Monica and one in Battery Park, New York City. They combine soundproof study rooms and phone booths, but also common spaces for working parents to socialize and relax. While the business took a financial hit due to the pandemic—forcing it to shutter a center in Silver Lake, Los Angeles—the shift to remote working meant that more parents needed the service when lockdown restrictions were lifted. The increased demand for family-friendly work spaces led to partnerships with co-working office provider Second Home and mall and office complex Brookfield Place in New York City, with Big and Tiny providing on-site childcare. “These companies were having issues getting their customers back,” says Bilbao, adding that employers partnering with Big and Tiny to offer these workspaces to employees have been able to “differentiate themselves” from rivals whose offices didn’t cater to the demands of modern life. Sustainability and wellbeing Months of mask mandates, social distancing and enhanced hygiene practices shifted many people’s understanding of what makes a healthy environment. As poorly ventilated office buildings became potential public health hazards, citizens found respite in outdoor spaces. Simultaneously, the pandemic appears to have heightened public awareness of the climate crisis, according to a survey by Boston Consulting Group, as the effect of human behavior on the natural world, and the risks to humankind, have become more apparent. This shift inspired a new wave of office design that prioritized the wellbeing of both employees and the external environment. Read More: In Some Workplaces, It’s Now OK Not to Be OK Turkish architecture practice Salon Alper Derinboğaz made the learnings from the pandemic central to the design of Ecotone, an innovation center at Yıldız Technical University in Istanbul. When construction is completed in late 2023, the transitional space between teaching facilities and a professional academy will be “pandemic resistant,” says the architecture firm’s founder, Alper Derinboğaz, referring to the building’s partially open air design. Istanbul’s mild Mediterranean climate has allowed Derinboğaz to permeate a series of open co-working spaces with outdoor walkways, creating the kind of passive natural ventilation system that the World Health Organization says reduces the transmission risk of airborne viruses. Ecotone’s geothermal heating and cooling system is low emission, while the self-supporting structure—featuring columns resembling stalagmites and stalactites in caves—removes the need to lay intrusive foundations in the land. Fluid, glass-paneled walls and interior foliage allows for greater connection between workers inside the building and nature. Courtesy of Salon Alper DerinboğazEcotone, designed by Salon Alper Derinboğaz Developing innovative approaches to reducing the office building’s carbon footprint was a priority for Derinboğaz, who notes that the construction industry produces nearly 40% of global carbon emissions. “As architects we really need to find a new way of doing things,” he says. “That’s why we wanted the university’s innovation center to be innovative in its design.” When it came to choosing architects for an addition to its Geneva campus, the United Nations (U.N.) says it chose London-based firm Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM) and Swiss studio Burckhardt+Partner. The architects took an innovative approach designing the 250,000 square foot office space. Completed in November 2021, the building was constructed on the historic Palais des Nations complex of buildings overlooking Lake Geneva, the U.N.’s second largest site after its New York headquarters. Water from the lake is used and recycled to heat and cool the building, eliminating the need for air conditioning units that are expensive to run and harmful to the environment. According to Kent Jackson, SOM’s lead designer on the project, which the firm said was for a “non-profit humanitarian organization in Geneva,” the impressive surroundings gave the architects a unique opportunity to enhance the building’s design. “We wanted to give every employee [working in the office] a 360 degree view around the natural setting,” he says—floor-to-ceiling windows stand in place of walls. “Who couldn’t be inspired in their work looking at the hillsides, parkland, water, and mountains?” Courtesy of SOM and Burckhardt+PartnerThe United Nations’ Geneva campus, designed by London-based firm Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM) and Swiss studio Burckhardt+Partner For many of the companies pursuing new approaches to workspaces, that is the ultimate goal: creating a space to inspire and motivate employees to produce their most innovative work. In an age of increasing flexibility and less emphasis on geographical location, the office space must benefit its inhabitants as much as it does the business. “It’s about going through the whole journey of the build and design process together,” says Spotify’s Simmonds. “Coming out the other end, our staff feel they really have ownership over their office.”.....»»

The "world"s coolest dictator" rounded up 60,000 people in a supposed crackdown on MS-13. A shrimp farming community is fighting back.

The MS-13 gang made El Salvador one of the most violent places not at war. The "world's coolest dictator" created a new layer of misery. Residents of the Bajo Lempa meet weekly at a retreat center to discuss the mass arrests.Fred Ramos for InsiderGang violence has made El Salvador one of the world's most violent places not at war. The crackdown by its "Bitcoin president" created a new layer of misery.SISIGUAYO, EL SALVADOR — On the morning that Walber Rodriguez was arrested last May, he was just two minutes from his home in Sisiguayo, El Salvador.Walber and his wife Estefany had worked the overnight shift at the shrimp cooperative, and then taken their six-year-old daughter Michelle to visit a relative. Walber was driving the family motorcycle, and Estefany and Michelle sat behind him. They were headed home.Walber was pulled over at "El Ceibo," a gathering place in Sisiguayo that's marked by a sturdy tree with an abundant canopy. Soon, Walber's sister, mother, and father had arrived, trying to reason with the officer, who knew them by name. They didn't understand why Walber was being handcuffed. Sisiguayo was a place that saw police and soldiers as allies. Back in 2015, when the MS-13 gang descended on the hamlet looking to recruit local teenagers, the cops had come down hard, even murdering some of the gang members, and Walber and his neighbors had raised money to build a new police station. Now, backup was arriving for the officer. Two navy soldiers showed up, including one who had been with Walber just the night before, watching a soccer game, and informed the others that Walber was "a working man." A patrol vehicle full of additional cops followed. No one named anything that Walber had done wrong. Yet the family's pleas didn't work. "Look," said the officer who led Walber off, flipping his wrist to the sky, "this comes from above." Within days of Walber's arrest, the Rodriguezes learned he was being accused of belonging to MS-13. "El Ceibo," a gathering place in Sisiguayo, is marked by a sturdy tree with an abundant canopy. It was here that Walber Rodriguez was arrested on May 1, 2022.Fred Ramos for InsiderScenes like this have been playing out across El Salvador since March, when President Nayib Bukele declared a "state of exception" and suspended certain constitutional rights, ostensibly to deal with MS-13 and two offshoots of the rival Barrio 18 gang, Barrio 18 Sureños and Barrio 18 Revolucionarios — all of which have terrorized El Salvador and made it one of the world's most violent places not at war. The declaration was meant to be temporary, lasting 30 days, but Bukele's administration has renewed it nine times. More than 60,000 people, mostly working-age men, have been arrested, while signs along roadways feature cinematic images of heavily-armed police ridding the country of "terrorists." Just as commercial fishermen trawl their way through columns of water to maximize their catch, Salvadoran authorities have rounded people up indiscriminately and with flimsy explanations.The 'world's coolest dictator' Even before authorities crushed in tens of thousands in a span of mere weeks, El Salvador's prisons were overcrowded and disease-ridden. It now tops the list of countries with the highest percentage of their populations behind bars, according to the World Prison Brief, a distinction that has been previously held by the United States. The supposed targets, MS-13 and Barrio 18, began in Los Angeles in the late twentieth century and arrived in El Salvador by way of gang members deported from the US. In 2018, then-President Donald Trump referenced MS-13 to say the US had allowed "animals" to cross into the country, and to justify draconian immigration policies. In El Salvador, the gangs have become one of the country's biggest employers, and they have cemented their power through backroom deals with elected leaders. That appears to have continued under Bukele, a former executive at a family public relations firm who was elected president in 2019 and has fashioned himself, in his ever-changing Twitter bio, as the "world's coolest dictator." Outside El Salvador, Bukele is best known for adopting Bitcoin as a national currency. A sign in the capital, San Salvador, announces the anti-gang crackdown.Fred Ramos for InsiderLast year, the US Treasury sanctioned two senior officials from Bukele's administration for cutting a deal with the gangs in exchange for support in the 2021 midterm elections — which saw Bukele's New Ideas party win a supermajority — and committing fewer homicides. What preceded the state of exception was a horrific weekend in which the gangs killed nearly 90 people. It, too, was allegedly a product of that deal: Salvadoran journalists at the investigative news outlet El Faro reported that the rampage was MS-13's retribution for a break-down in the agreement. The cooperation doesn't end there. Earlier this year, when the U.S. federal court of the Eastern District of New York requested the extradition of MS-13's leadership to stand trial on terrorism charges, Bukele-allied judges blocked some of the extraditions. The administration then released one of the wanted gang leaders from prison, and a senior official helped him flee to Guatemala. The administration denies all this, and, so far, things appear to be going Bukele's way. Tough-on-crime stances have historically been as popular in El Salvador as in the United States. And, as in the U.S., the public is primed to believe that anyone targeted by police is guilty until proven innocent. A Gallup poll released in October recorded Bukele's public approval at 86%. Police make an arrest in San Salvador on June 14th, 2022.Fred Ramos for InsiderThe word on the street, according to family members gathered at prisons for news of loved ones, is that while local gang cliques have gone quiet, they're still out there — hiding in full knowledge of the police, whose focus is elsewhere. According to the Passionist Social Services, nearly 40% of the murders in El Salvador since the beginning of the state of exception have been committed by police. Meanwhile, the administration has steadily eroded public access to information about who they are taking and why. El Faro obtained documents involving 690 arrests between March and April, and found that, overwhelmingly, the police are using criteria like "looking suspicious" or "acting nervous" to justify the arrests. Bukele, for his part, has breezily mentioned a margin of "one percent error." "This time, they're not coming out," he tweeted about the state of exception detainees in mid-April. The administration is building a new prison that Bukele says will house 40,000 "terrorists" who "will be cut off from the outside world." But, by terrorists, the president seems to mean people like Walber. 'Until we can embrace them'Once it became clear that Walber had been caught up in the crackdown, the Rodriguez family's hope for a quick release evaporated. By this point, they had discovered that they were not alone. All around them in Sisiguayo and the surrounding Bajo Lempa valley, people were arrested with no satisfactory explanation. The sons of two cousins who lived in a nearby community, Mario and Pablo, were among the first to be taken; their boys were handcuffed while drinking beers after a soccer game. Another neighbor was arrested even though he'd obtained and was carrying around his spotless police record, believing, wrongly, that such a thing would matter to police. He was detained holding his one-year-old in his arms.Residents of the Bajo Lempa who'd been touched by the arrests had begun meeting weekly at a nearby retreat center. There were only about a dozen attendees then, most of them trembling in fear and unable to tell their stories without crying. Now, Estefany, along with Walber's sister, Glenda, and Walber's parents, Tomas and Margarita, became the group's newest members. The group had started in April, launched by Rossy Iraheta Marinero and José Salvador Ruiz, known as Chamba  — two lay pastoral guides whose faith follows the tenets of Latin American liberation theology. They came from the same limited economic reality as their neighbors, and, in fact, they have full-time jobs and families. None of their own relatives had been detained. But they'd been stirred by the plight and compelled by their own theological solidarity practices to act. In the early days, they found that even civil society organizations that were traditionally fearless in denouncing state violence seemed reluctant to aid the so-called "terrorists." A handful of human rights organizations, principally one called Cristosal and a feminist collective in San Salvador, stepped up and, through them, the group has now filed 111 claims of habeas corpus  — a legal demand that prosecutors present their evidence against a detained person, or forfeit custody. "The families have hope that their loved ones are still alive, but they don't have certainty of that," Rossy told me. They also created a website where they posted photos of their imprisoned kin, and composed a song, "Until we can embrace them," that enshrines their suffering and their demands.   Few groups elsewhere in the country have coalesced in this way to lobby. Rossy evokes groups in Argentina and Mexico – and even in El Salvador itself – who never stopped agitating for justice on behalf of loved ones who had been disappeared by the state in earlier decades, leaving maps for others to follow. "A long battle" lies ahead, Rossy cautioned them in one meeting. "You have to be prepared."Outside MarionaWalber, and many of the others from the Bajo Lempa, had ended up at a prison informally known as Mariona, for the municipality where it's located. Under the state of exception, prisons were sealed off. Not even lawyers could get in. There was no protocol for finding out how Walber was doing, or if he was even alive. In El Salvador, it falls to families to help feed and clothe incarcerated relatives. Although the State provides meals to those in prison, Bukele has limited the men to two meager plates per day, as punishment. To leave supplemental food and other essentials, or to elicit a nugget of information from a bureaucrat at the prison's entrance, Estefany, Glenda, and others from Sisiguayo had no choice but to camp out outside Mariona. It's mostly men who have been arrested, and, in the first months of the crackdown, it was mostly women waiting outside prisons, by the thousands, for days at a time, sharing meals and makeshift cardboard mattresses. Everyone was taking on debt to afford the litany of expenses that follow an arrest, and some said they'd lost their jobs because they had spent so many days waiting. It was rumored that some police were offering to trade a man's freedom for sex or money.Glenda Rodriguez walks to the Mariona prison to get news of her brother, Walber Rodriguez, on June 20, 2022.Fred Ramos for Insider The jailings came so fast that Cristosal rushed to set up an online system where families could report arrests and sign up for support as they navigated the justice system. Families described traveling hours to a public defender's office and finding a line so long they lost hope of being seen. There's now about one public defender for every 200 arrests. Initial hearings include up to 500 defendants simultaneously, and Bukele has warned he'll be monitoring judges for "favoring delinquents."  If a name disappears from the register of detainees, it could mean they'd been moved to another prison, or to a hospital, or to a morgue. The country's major newspapers run regular reports of families being unceremoniously delivered the lifeless bodies of loved ones. One of the few men who'd been held at Izalco prison and then released told the Salvadoran outlet La Prensa Grafica that prisoners had been made to run barefoot in circles for hours. When one man fell from exhaustion, the guards broke his ribs, and he died eight days later, the man said. This is the kind of news the families of the Bajo Lempa live in terror of receiving. 'We fear each other again'Sisiguayo sits in the fertile valley where the Lempa river makes its final stretch through El Salvador before flowing out to the Pacific Ocean. Here, the air tastes salty and thick, a reminder of the mangrove forests and the ocean just beyond them. Homes are one-story cinderblock structures, painted in tropical greens and blues and surrounded by clotheslines, palm trees and outhouses. A communal speaker system broadcasts news and emergency alerts.A sunbaked dirt road connects Sisiguayo to the nearest highway, and along it, residents commute by bicycle or motorbike, bending around the cows, horses and dogs that loll about. Every year around November, the rainy season leaves behind deep potholes, so each family gives the share of money they can spare to pay for gas to power the construction equipment loaned from the mayor's office to fortify the road. Most young people work in shrimp cooperatives, where many tasks are nocturnal. It's a life of little sleep and hard manual labor. Night shifts start at around three in the morning. The workers return home for breakfast at about nine, and head off to a second job, like seasonal farming or bricklaying. Here, as everywhere else, the state of exception has been a financial drain. More than a dozen men from one of the shrimp cooperatives were netted in the crackdown, and what normally takes the cooperative two weeks to accomplish now takes two or three months. Roxana, another one of the Rodriguezes' neighbors, was hit especially hard by the arrests. Her two sons, a daughter-in-law and a brother-in-law were rounded up, as well as her boyfriend Jeremias' two nephews. Now, she spends much of her time running endless arrest-related errands. Her youngest daughter, who's 12, had to leave school to help run the family's corner store and care for Roxana's 5-year-old grandchild. Within the first six weeks, the costs ballooned to around $1000 — a small fortune that's twice the amount Roxana spent to open and fully stock her shop. By the late summer, Jeremias is usually out in the fields alongside Roxana's two boys and his two nephews, planting corn for the family to eat. With them in prison, he had to forgo the crop this year, because it's too much to handle alone.  The state of exception "has a human cost that we still can't fully see," said Noah Bullock, Executive Director of Cristosal. "There is the torture, the inhumane treatment, the more than eighty deaths in prisons, and that's only talking about the people who are detained. Life projects that people have built slowly over generations are suddenly paralyzed and collapsed. There's the loss of income and the simultaneous expenses. The social cost of being stigmatized as 'terrorists.'" The administration seems unperturbed by the volume of blameless people it has locked up. "There will always be victims in war," Vice President Felix Ulloa has said of the state of exception. Walber's father, Tomas, at home in Sisiguayo, on June 17, 2022.Fred Ramos for InsiderThe last time state security forces were targeting the people of the Bajo Lempa en masse and without explanation, it was in the middle of a civil war. From late 1979 until 1992, vicious US-backed government forces clashed with a leftist guerrilla movement. More than 75,000 Salvadorans died and thousands more were disappeared. A United Nations truth commission later found that 85% of the war kidnapping, torture and murder were committed by the government forces, including police and military. Walber's parents were among those fighting on the side of the guerrillas. In 1992, when they dropped their rifles after U.N.-brokered peace talks, they were given land as a way to return to civilian life. Margarita, Tomas and their neighbors came to inhabit Sisiguayo, with its rich coastal tracts, generous for fishing and farming. For Margarita, her son's senseless arrest reminded her of the state-sponsored kidnappings that had led her to take up arms. "That's what most hurts," she told me. "Now we fear each other again."  A photo of Walber Rodriguez's father, Tomas, from when he was a member of a guerrilla group during the Salvadoran civil war, hangs in his house.Fred Ramos for InsiderThe Bajo Lempa is also a flood plain, a condition that was exacerbated by poor government management of the hydroelectric dams that line the river. During repeated devastating floods in the past three decades, the people of the region, the Rodriguez family among them, lobbied and protested, even marching about sixty miles on foot to the capital to demand better dam administration. For Walber and his older sister Glenda, who were children at the time, this was an early education in democracy. The Bajo Lempa won. San Salvador committed to building the levies needed to ameliorate the annual floods, and to communicating its plans to discharge water from the dams, so the communities in harms' way could evacuate in time.Now, they are again under siege. Surf City Abroad, Bukele is best known for two things. First, his announcement, at the Bitcoin 2021 conference in Miami, that his government would "push humanity at least a tiny bit in the right direction" by adopting Bitcoin as a national currency. Second, his "Surf City" initiative along El Salvador's 190-mile Pacific coastline, where consistent eight-to-ten-foot waves in prime spots makes it one of the best surfing destinations in the Americas. Bukele's target audience for Surf City is Bitcoin enthusiasts and international surfers. And everyone knows that Surf City is his. After the apparent breakdown in negotiations between the administration and MS-13, the gangs left a message for Bukele in the form of a mangled cadaver on the highway that connects the beaches to the capital.By June 2022, Bloomberg estimated that Bukele's crypto gamble had cost El Salvador nearly $56 million. That same month, as thousands of Salvadorans were being locked up, Surf City was playing host to the World Surf League's Championship Tour at a beach called Punta Roca. "Eighty-two degree water, no wetsuits!" a voice thundered from the loudspeaker.Nearby, cameramen grumbled to a Salvadoran surfer that they couldn't pan without a uniformed man with a rifle coming into the image.  Locals, who in theory stand to benefit from all of this, were remarking that whitewashing the entrance wall to one beach, El Tunco, and stamping it with an English name left it looking like a drive-through bank. "It was good that he saw the potential in our waves," Enzo, who runs a couple of cafes in the area, told me one evening. Promised infrastructural improvements, like finally completing a waste-water treatment plant so that businesses aren't reliant on bottled water, haven't arrived. Meanwhile, new luxury apartments with a base price of $400,000 are being marketed to crypto enthusiasts, prompting worry that excessive development will smother the area's natural beauty and put everyone out of business. It's almost as if Surf City is Bukele's Potemkin Village, thrown up to boost his standing in a handful of elite circles as he loses legitimacy elsewhere. Bukele "wants to promote the country as a place that other people can buy," said Bullock of Cristosal. "But what is his plan for the middle-aged man who has sold coconuts in Punta Roca his whole life? El Tunco already has local commerce and its own identity. Why not honor that identity?"'Dad's not working, is he?'When Walber was jailed, Estefany told their six-year-old, Michelle, that Walber had gone out of town for a job. When Estefany and Glenda left for days camped outside the prison, she said they were studying. Michelle's questions became harder to escape. When he was away working, Walber usually sent a flood of adoring messages to his daughter on Estefany's phone, but this time, there were none to show. Before ten days had passed, Michelle cornered her mom: "Dad's not working, is he?"  At six, Michelle is absorbing that her life is built on shifting sands — a father in prison, a mother who might withhold the truth. Estefany tried to explain, saying, "The authorities make mistakes." But it's just another tectonic lesson for a child. Walber and Estefany have known each other since they were kids and they've been partners for years, but it was only last year that they finally got married. They were the first in the family to have a real wedding, and Glenda remembers how they both giggled when they asked her to save the date — Dec. 17. Graduation photos of Walber Rodriguez, left, and his sister, Glenda Rodriguez, right, at the family house in Sisiguayo.Fred Ramos for InsiderEstefany's dress, which Glenda and Margarita helped her choose, was the color of red wine and had a sparkling brooch at the bosom. Walber had splurged on a new oxford shirt, jeans, and white tennis shoes. He also surprised Estefany with a wedding ring, which he had secretly saved for months to buy. It was a luxury she had never imagined. The cake, a single-tier white sphere adorned with fruit, held the children rapt until it was time to dig in. When Glenda thinks about the politicians and the police who get to return home to their families at night, so easy in their freedom, it fills her with rage. They can't even begin to comprehend what they have stolen from their people.'No one else will defend him but us' The retreat center where the families met every week was a thirty-minute crawling drive down the potholed dirt road from where Walber was arrested. In late June, 54 days after Walber's arrest, three-dozen of them sat as they usually did, in a circle of plastic chairs in an open-air pavilion, roofed in ceramic tile and ringed in a garden of carefully-manicured green.Rossy stood in the middle of the circle, wearing flip-flops and a white tunic embroidered with flowers, calling on people to speak. Chamba kept a notebook propped between his thigh and the arm of his wheelchair. The families were debating: Should they stay the course, and pursue their habeas corpus claims in court? Or was it time to take to the streets? The habeas corpus route had been Rossy's idea. Back in 2020, right when COVID-19 upended global travel, Rossy was in Ecuador at a theological conference. Bukele was about to close the borders and implement some of the most restrictive pandemic measures in the world. She managed to get onto the last flight into the Salvadoran airport and ended up at a quarantine center for six weeks. Desperate for a way out, a lawyer friend advised her to file a habeas corpus claim. It worked – she was released. Now, it's a tactic that more than 1,800 other Salvadorans across the country have also used since March, but to little effect since the administration has wrenched the legal system into its orbit, forcing many judges to retire and intimidating the rest, along with flooding the system with many times more defendants than it can handle. Members of the group have been harassed by the police, and there was always concern that cops might show up in the middle of the meeting to arrest everyone. One woman who had started attending after her husband was arrested was then herself arrested. Now, the neighbors couldn't agree on what was best. The state of exception allowed the police to detain anyone for any reason. If they protested and ended up incarcerated alongside their loved ones, who would defend them then?  People clamored to speak. Rossy called on a gray-haired man in a cowboy hat. He was one of the many who had spent consecutive days and nights on the street outside Mariona, where his son was being held, and while there, he heard rumor that the guards take vengeance on prisoners whose families caused trouble out front. He rose slowly, and then stated his firm opposition to any public action. He reminded the group that it wasn't only themselves who would pay the price for protesting. When he took up arms in the civil war, he said, it was his own life he was putting at risk. But now, any action might put his son's life at risk. When he finished speaking, Glenda – who, at 28 years old, was among the youngest group members – raised her hand. "I may not have as much life experience as many of you. And I didn't live the war fighting in the mountains like many of you did," she began. But, she continued, she did know that all of El Salvador's civil rights victories, including democracy itself, were the product of struggles on the street. She too had camped outside Mariona, and she had learned that viral malicious rumors appeared on social media as part of an attempt to silence families. A meeting of the Bajo Lempa families on June 17, 2022.Fred Ramos for Insider"If the state is going to kill my brother, it will do so whether or not I speak out. If it will incarcerate me – the same is true," she reasoned. "No one else will defend him but us." Finally, there was simply the value of the truth: "The president wants to make this country look like a wonderland, like everything is Surf City," she said – but the world needed to know what was really happening in El Salvador.  The group ultimately decided that Glenda was right: it was time to take the streets. And just as each Bajo Lempa family had discovered that they were not alone when they found the group, now they saw there were hundreds of families around the country who, like them, were ready to march in San Salvador. They began regularly joining the others in the capital to protest and speak to the media, while continuing their habeas corpus petitions. Just before Christmas, the families of the Bajo Lempa packed a bridge on a main thoroughfare and demanded their loved ones be freed. For now, the Bukele administration remains unmoved. The group is now planning to sue their government in an international human rights court.One day last summer, before anyone comprehended how long this would last, Roxana told me something that multiple women in the Bajo Lempa echoed: Since her children were detained, she has been dreaming of them. In one dream, she was sitting at home in the dark, and one of her three sons walked through the front door. He paused in the threshold. She thought it was Cristian, the only one who has not yet been taken. But when he stepped out of the shadow, she saw that it was Javier, her youngest. He was dressed just as he had been on April 27, the night the police hauled him away. She called to him – and then the dream ended. "As a mother," she said, "you wake up to a nightmare."This reporting was supported by the International Women's Media Foundation's Howard G.

All around them in Sisiguayo and the surrounding Bajo Lempa valley, people were arrested with no satisfactory explanation. The sons of two cousins who lived in a nearby community, Mario and Pablo, were among the first to be taken; their boys were handcuffed while drinking beers after a soccer game. Another neighbor was arrested even though he'd obtained and was carrying around his spotless police record, believing, wrongly, that such a thing would matter to police. He was detained holding his one-year-old in his arms.Residents of the Bajo Lempa who'd been touched by the arrests had begun meeting weekly at a nearby retreat center. There were only about a dozen attendees then, most of them trembling in fear and unable to tell their stories without crying. Now, Estefany, along with Walber's sister, Glenda, and Walber's parents, Tomas and Margarita, became the group's newest members. The group had started in April, launched by Rossy Iraheta Marinero and José Salvador Ruiz, known as Chamba  — two lay pastoral guides whose faith follows the tenets of Latin American liberation theology. They came from the same limited economic reality as their neighbors, and, in fact, they have full-time jobs and families. None of their own relatives had been detained. But they'd been stirred by the plight and compelled by their own theological solidarity practices to act. In the early days, they found that even civil society organizations that were traditionally fearless in denouncing state violence seemed reluctant to aid the so-called "terrorists." A handful of human rights organizations, principally one called Cristosal and a feminist collective in San Salvador, stepped up and, through them, the group has now filed 111 claims of habeas corpus  — a legal demand that prosecutors present their evidence against a detained person, or forfeit custody. "The families have hope that their loved ones are still alive, but they don't have certainty of that," Rossy told me. They also created a website where they posted photos of their imprisoned kin, and composed a song, "Until we can embrace them," that enshrines their suffering and their demands.   Few groups elsewhere in the country have coalesced in this way to lobby. Rossy evokes groups in Argentina and Mexico – and even in El Salvador itself – who never stopped agitating for justice on behalf of loved ones who had been disappeared by the state in earlier decades, leaving maps for others to follow. "A long battle" lies ahead, Rossy cautioned them in one meeting. "You have to be prepared."Outside MarionaWalber, and many of the others from the Bajo Lempa, had ended up at a prison informally known as Mariona, for the municipality where it's located. Under the state of exception, prisons were sealed off. Not even lawyers could get in. There was no protocol for finding out how Walber was doing, or if he was even alive. In El Salvador, it falls to families to help feed and clothe incarcerated relatives. Although the State provides meals to those in prison, Bukele has limited the men to two meager plates per day, as punishment. To leave supplemental food and other essentials, or to elicit a nugget of information from a bureaucrat at the prison's entrance, Estefany, Glenda, and others from Sisiguayo had no choice but to camp out outside Mariona. It's mostly men who have been arrested, and, in the first months of the crackdown, it was mostly women waiting outside prisons, by the thousands, for days at a time, sharing meals and makeshift cardboard mattresses. Everyone was taking on debt to afford the litany of expenses that follow an arrest, and some said they'd lost their jobs because they had spent so many days waiting. It was rumored that some police were offering to trade a man's freedom for sex or money.Glenda Rodriguez walks to the Mariona prison to get news of her brother, Walber Rodriguez, on June 20, 2022.Fred Ramos for Insider The jailings came so fast that Cristosal rushed to set up an online system where families could report arrests and sign up for support as they navigated the justice system. Families described traveling hours to a public defender's office and finding a line so long they lost hope of being seen. There's now about one public defender for every 200 arrests. Initial hearings include up to 500 defendants simultaneously, and Bukele has warned he'll be monitoring judges for "favoring delinquents."  If a name disappears from the register of detainees, it could mean they'd been moved to another prison, or to a hospital, or to a morgue. The country's major newspapers run regular reports of families being unceremoniously delivered the lifeless bodies of loved ones. One of the few men who'd been held at Izalco prison and then released told the Salvadoran outlet La Prensa Grafica that prisoners had been made to run barefoot in circles for hours. When one man fell from exhaustion, the guards broke his ribs, and he died eight days later, the man said. This is the kind of news the families of the Bajo Lempa live in terror of receiving. 'We fear each other again'Sisiguayo sits in the fertile valley where the Lempa river makes its final stretch through El Salvador before flowing out to the Pacific Ocean. Here, the air tastes salty and thick, a reminder of the mangrove forests and the ocean just beyond them. Homes are one-story cinderblock structures, painted in tropical greens and blues and surrounded by clotheslines, palm trees and outhouses. A communal speaker system broadcasts news and emergency alerts.A sunbaked dirt road connects Sisiguayo to the nearest highway, and along it, residents commute by bicycle or motorbike, bending around the cows, horses and dogs that loll about. Every year around November, the rainy season leaves behind deep potholes, so each family gives the share of money they can spare to pay for gas to power the construction equipment loaned from the mayor's office to fortify the road. Most young people work in shrimp cooperatives, where many tasks are nocturnal. It's a life of little sleep and hard manual labor. Night shifts start at around three in the morning. The workers return home for breakfast at about nine, and head off to a second job, like seasonal farming or bricklaying. Here, as everywhere else, the state of exception has been a financial drain. More than a dozen men from one of the shrimp cooperatives were netted in the crackdown, and what normally takes the cooperative two weeks to accomplish now takes two or three months. Roxana, another one of the Rodriguezes' neighbors, was hit especially hard by the arrests. Her two sons, a daughter-in-law and a brother-in-law were rounded up, as well as her boyfriend Jeremias' two nephews. Now, she spends much of her time running endless arrest-related errands. Her youngest daughter, who's 12, had to leave school to help run the family's corner store and care for Roxana's 5-year-old grandchild. Within the first six weeks, the costs ballooned to around $1000 — a small fortune that's twice the amount Roxana spent to open and fully stock her shop. By the late summer Jeremias, is usually out in the fields alongside Roxana's two boys and his two nephews, planting corn for the family to eat. With them in prison, he had to forgo the crop this year, because it's too much to handle alone.  The state of exception "has a human cost that we still can't fully see," said Noah Bullock, Executive Director of Cristosal. "There is the torture, the inhumane treatment, the more than eighty deaths in prisons, and that's only talking about the people who are detained. Life projects that people have built slowly over generations are suddenly paralyzed and collapsed. There's the loss of income and the simultaneous expenses. The social cost of being stigmatized as 'terrorists.'" The administration seems unperturbed by the volume of blameless people it has locked up. "There will always be victims in war," Vice President Felix Ulloa has said of the state of exception. Walber's father, Tomas, at home in Sisiguayo, on June 17, 2022.Fred Ramos for InsiderThe last time state security forces were targeting the people of the Bajo Lempa en masse and without explanation, it was in the middle of a civil war. From late 1979 until 1992, vicious US-backed government forces clashed with a leftist guerrilla movement. More than 75,000 Salvadorans died and thousands more were disappeared. A United Nations truth commission later found that 85% of the war kidnapping, torture and murder were committed by the government forces, including police and military. Walber's parents were among those fighting on the side of the guerrillas. In 1992, when they dropped their rifles after U.N.-brokered peace talks, they were given land as a way to return to civilian life. Margarita, Tomas and their neighbors came to inhabit Sisiguayo, with its rich coastal tracts, generous for fishing and farming. For Margarita, her son's senseless arrest reminded her of the state-sponsored kidnappings that had led her to take up arms. "That's what most hurts," she told me. "Now we fear each other again."  A photo of Walber Rodriguez's father, Tomas, from when he was a member of a guerrilla group during the Salvadoran civil war, hangs in his house.Fred Ramos for InsiderThe Bajo Lempa is also a flood plain, a condition that was exacerbated by poor government management of the hydroelectric dams that line the river. During repeated devastating floods in the past three decades, the people of the region, the Rodriguez family among them, lobbied and protested, even marching about sixty miles on foot to the capital to demand better dam administration. For Walber and his older sister Glenda, who were children at the time, this was an early education in democracy. The Bajo Lempa won. San Salvador committed to building the levies needed to ameliorate the annual floods, and to communicating its plans to discharge water from the dams, so the communities in harms' way could evacuate in time.Now, they are again under siege. Surf City Abroad, Bukele is best known for two things. First, his announcement, at the Bitcoin 2021 conference in Miami, that his government would "push humanity at least a tiny bit in the right direction" by adopting Bitcoin as a national currency. Second, his "Surf City" initiative along El Salvador's 190-mile Pacific coastline, where consistent eight-to-ten-foot waves in prime spots makes it one of the best surfing destinations in the Americas. Bukele's target audience for Surf City is Bitcoin enthusiasts and international surfers. And everyone knows that Surf City is his. After the apparent breakdown in negotiations between the administration and MS-13, the gangs left a message for Bukele in the form of a mangled cadaver on the highway that connects the beaches to the capital.By June 2022, Bloomberg estimated that Bukele's crypto gamble had cost El Salvador nearly $56 million. That same month, as thousands of Salvadorans were being locked up, Surf City was playing host to the World Surf League's Championship Tour at a beach called Punta Roca. "Eighty-two degree water, no wetsuits!" a voice thundered from the loudspeaker.Nearby, cameramen grumbled to a Salvadoran surfer that they couldn't pan without a uniformed man with a rifle coming into the image.  Locals, who in theory stand to benefit from all of this, were remarking that whitewashing the entrance wall to one beach, El Tunco, and stamping it with an English name left it looking like a drive-through bank. "It was good that he saw the potential in our waves," Enzo, who runs a couple of cafes in the area, told me one evening. Promised infrastructural improvements, like finally completing a waste-water treatment plant so that businesses aren't reliant on bottled water, haven't arrived. Meanwhile, new luxury apartments with a base price of $400,000 are being marketed to crypto enthusiasts, prompting worry that excessive development will smother the area's natural beauty and put everyone out of business. It's almost as if Surf City is Bukele's Potemkin Village, thrown up to boost his standing in a handful of elite circles as he loses legitimacy elsewhere. Bukele "wants to promote the country as a place that other people can buy," said Bullock of Cristosal. "But what is his plan for the middle-aged man who has sold coconuts in Punta Roca his whole life? El Tunco already has local commerce and its own identity. Why not honor that identity?"'Dad's not working, is he?'When Walber was jailed, Estefany told their six-year-old, Michelle, that Walber had gone out of town for a job. When Estefany and Glenda left for days camped outside the prison, she said they were studying. Michelle's questions became harder to escape. When he was away working, Walber usually sent a flood of adoring messages to his daughter on Estefany's phone, but this time, there were none to show. Before ten days had passed, Michelle cornered her mom: "Dad's not working, is he?"  At six, Michelle is absorbing that her life is built on shifting sands — a father in prison, a mother who might withhold the truth. Estefany tried to explain, saying, "The authorities make mistakes." But it's just another tectonic lesson for a child. Walber and Estefany have known each other since they were kids and they've been partners for years, but it was only last year that they finally got married. They were the first in the family to have a real wedding, and Glenda remembers how they both giggled when they asked her to save the date — Dec. 17. Graduation photos of Walber Rodriguez, left, and his sister, Glenda Rodriguez, right, at the family house in Sisiguayo.Fred Ramos for InsiderEstefany's dress, which Glenda and Margarita helped her choose, was the color of red wine and had a sparkling brooch at the bosom. Walber had splurged on a new oxford shirt, jeans, and white tennis shoes. He also surprised Estefany with a wedding ring, which he had secretly saved for months to buy. It was a luxury she had never imagined. The cake, a single-tier white sphere adorned with fruit, held the children rapt until it was time to dig in. When Glenda thinks about the politicians and the police who get to return home to their families at night, so easy in their freedom, it fills her with rage. They can't even begin to comprehend what they have stolen from their people.'No one else will defend him but us' The retreat center where the families met every week was a thirty-minute crawling drive down the potholed dirt road from where Walber was arrested. In late June, 54 days after Walber's arrest, three-dozen of them sat as they usually did, in a circle of plastic chairs in an open-air pavilion, roofed in ceramic tile and ringed in a garden of carefully-manicured green.Rossy stood in the middle of the circle, wearing flip-flops and a white tunic embroidered with flowers, calling on people to speak. Chamba kept a notebook propped between his thigh and the arm of his wheelchair. The families were debating: Should they stay the course, and pursue their habeas corpus claims in court? Or was it time to take to the streets? The habeas corpus route had been Rossy's idea. Back in 2020, right when COVID-19 upended global travel, Rossy was in Ecuador at a theological conference. Bukele was about to close the borders and implement some of the most restrictive pandemic measures in the world. She managed to get onto the last flight into the Salvadoran airport and ended up at a quarantine center for six weeks. Desperate for a way out, a lawyer friend advised her to file a habeas corpus claim. It worked – she was released. Now, it's a tactic that more than 1,800 other Salvadorans across the country have also used since March, but to little effect since the administration has wrenched the legal system into its orbit, forcing many judges to retire and intimidating the rest, along with flooding the system with many times more defendants than it can handle. Members of the group have been harassed by the police, and there was always concern that cops might show up in the middle of the meeting to arrest everyone. One woman who had started attending after her husband was arrested was then herself arrested. Now, the neighbors couldn't agree on what was best. The state of exception allowed the police to detain anyone for any reason. If they protested and ended up incarcerated alongside their loved ones, who would defend them then?  People clamored to speak. Rossy called on a gray-haired man in a cowboy hat. He was one of the many who had spent consecutive days and nights on the street outside Mariona, where his son was being held, and while there, he heard rumor that the guards take vengeance on prisoners whose families caused trouble out front. He rose slowly, and then stated his firm opposition to any public action. He reminded the group that it wasn't only themselves who would pay the price for protesting. When he took up arms in the civil war, he said, it was his own life he was putting at risk. But now, any action might put his son's life at risk. When he finished speaking, Glenda – who, at 28 years old, was among the youngest group members – raised her hand. "I may not have as much life experience as many of you. And I didn't live the war fighting in the mountains like many of you did," she began. But, she continued, she did know that all of El Salvador's civil rights victories, including democracy itself, were the product of struggles on the street. She too had camped outside Mariona, and she had learned that viral malicious rumors appeared on social media as part of an attempt to silence families. A meeting of the Bajo Lempa families on June 17, 2022.Fred Ramos for Insider"If the state is going to kill my brother, it will do so whether or not I speak out. If it will incarcerate me – the same is true," she reasoned. "No one else will defend him but us." Finally, there was simply the value of the truth: "The president wants to make this country look like a wonderland, like everything is Surf City," she said – but the world needed to know what was really happening in El Salvador.  The group ultimately decided that Glenda was right: it was time to take the streets. And just as each Bajo Lempa family had discovered that they were not alone when they found the group, now they saw there were hundreds of families around the country who, like them, were ready to march in San Salvador. They began regularly joining the others in the capital to protest and speak to the media, while continuing their habeas corpus petitions. Just before Christmas, the families of the Bajo Lempa packed a bridge on a main thoroughfare and demanded their loved ones be freed. For now, the Bukele administration remains unmoved. The group is now planning to sue their government in an international human rights court.One day last summer, before anyone comprehended how long this would last, Roxana told me something that multiple women in the Bajo Lempa echoed: Since her children were detained, she has been dreaming of them. In one dream, she was sitting at home in the dark, and one of her three sons walked through the front door. He paused in the threshold. She thought it was Cristian, the only one who has not yet been taken. But when he stepped out of the shadow, she saw that it was Javier, her youngest. He was dressed just as he had been on April 27, the night the police hauled him away. She called to him – and then the dream ended. "As a mother," she said, "you wake up to a nightmare."This reporting was supported by the International Women's Media Foundation's Howard G.

The "world"s coolest dictator" rounded up 60,000 people he claims are MS-13 gang members. A shrimp farming community is fighting back.

The MS-13 gang made El Salvador one of the most violent places not at war. The 'world's coolest dictator' created a new layer of misery. Residents of the Bajo Lempa meet weekly at a retreat center to discuss the mass arrests.Fred Ramos for InsiderGang violence has made El Salvador one of the world's most violent places not at war. The crackdown by its "Bitcoin president" created a new layer of misery.SISIGUAYO, EL SALVADOR — On the morning that Walber Rodriguez was arrested last May, he was just two minutes from his home in Sisiguayo, El Salvador.Walber and his wife Estefany had worked the overnight shift at the shrimp cooperative, and then taken their six-year-old daughter Michelle to visit a relative. Walber was driving the family motorcycle, and Estefany and Michelle sat behind him. They were headed home.Walber was pulled over at "El Ceibo," a gathering place in Sisiguayo that's marked by a sturdy tree with an abundant canopy. Soon, Walber's sister, mother, and father had arrived, trying to reason with the officer, who knew them by name. They didn't understand why Walber was being handcuffed. Sisiguayo was a place that saw police and soldiers as allies. Back in 2015, when the MS-13 gang descended on the hamlet looking to recruit local teenagers, the cops had come down hard, even murdering some of the gang members, and Walber and his neighbors had raised money to build a new police station. Now, backup was arriving for the officer. Two navy soldiers showed up, including one who had been with Walber just the night before, watching a soccer game, and informed the others that Walber was "a working man." A patrol vehicle full of additional cops followed. No one named anything that Walber had done wrong. Yet the family's pleas didn't work. "Look," said the officer who led Walber off, flipping his wrist to the sky, "this comes from above." Within days of Walber's arrest, the Rodriguezes learned he was being accused of belonging to MS-13. "El Ceibo," a gathering place in Sisiguayo, is marked by a sturdy tree with an abundant canopy. It was here that Walber Rodriguez was arrested on May 1, 2022.Fred Ramos for InsiderScenes like this have been playing out across El Salvador since March, when President Nayib Bukele declared a "state of exception" and suspended certain constitutional rights, ostensibly to deal with MS-13 and two offshoots of the rival Barrio 18 gang, Barrio 18 Sureños and Barrio 18 Revolucionarios — all of which have terrorized El Salvador and made it one of the world's most violent places not at war. The declaration was meant to be temporary, lasting 30 days, but Bukele's administration has renewed it nine times. More than 60,000 people, mostly working-age men, have been arrested, while signs along roadways feature cinematic images of heavily-armed police ridding the country of "terrorists." Just as commercial fishermen trawl their way through columns of water to maximize their catch, Salvadoran authorities have rounded people up indiscriminately and with flimsy explanations.The 'world's coolest dictator' Even before authorities crushed in tens of thousands in a span of mere weeks, El Salvador's prisons were overcrowded and disease-ridden. It now tops the list of countries with the highest percentage of their populations behind bars, according to the World Prison Brief, a distinction that has been previously held by the United States. The supposed targets, MS-13 and Barrio 18, began in Los Angeles in the late twentieth century and arrived in El Salvador by way of gang members deported from the US. In 2018, then-President Donald Trump referenced MS-13 to say the US had allowed "animals" to cross into the country, and to justify draconian immigration policies. In El Salvador, the gangs have become one of the country's biggest employers, and they have cemented their power through backroom deals with elected leaders. That appears to have continued under Bukele, a former executive at a family public relations firm who was elected president in 2019 and has fashioned himself, in his ever-changing Twitter bio, as the "world's coolest dictator." Outside El Salvador, Bukele is best known for adopting Bitcoin as a national currency. A sign in the capital, San Salvador, announces the anti-gang crackdown.Fred Ramos for InsiderLast year, the US Treasury sanctioned two senior officials from Bukele's administration for cutting a deal with the gangs in exchange for support in the 2021 midterm elections — which saw Bukele's New Ideas party win a supermajority — and committing fewer homicides. What preceded the state of exception was a horrific weekend in which the gangs killed nearly 90 people. It, too, was allegedly a product of that deal: Salvadoran journalists at the investigative news outlet El Faro reported that the rampage was MS-13's retribution for a break-down in the agreement. The cooperation doesn't end there.: Earlier this year, when the U.S. federal court of the Eastern District of New York requested the extradition of MS-13's leadership to stand trial on terrorism charges, Bukele-allied judges blocked some of the extraditions. The administration then released one of the wanted gang leaders from prison, and a senior official helped him flee to Guatemala. The administration denies all this, and, so far, things appear to be going Bukele's way. Tough-on-crime stances have historically been as popular in El Salvador as in the United States. And, as in the U.S., the public is primed to believe that anyone targeted by police is guilty until proven innocent. A Gallup poll released in October recorded Bukele's public approval at 86%. Police make an arrest in San Salvador on June 14th, 2022.Fred Ramos for InsiderThe word on the street, according to family members gathered at prisons for news of loved ones, is that while local gang cliques have gone quiet, they're still out there — hiding in full knowledge of the police, whose focus is elsewhere. According to xxx, nearly 40% of the xxx murders in El Salvador since the beginning of the state of exception have been committed by police. Meanwhile, the administration has steadily eroded public access to information about who they are taking and why. El Faro obtained documents involving 690 arrests between March and April, and found that, overwhelmingly, the police are using criteria like "looking suspicious" or "acting nervous" to justify the arrests. Bukele, for his part, has breezily mentioned a margin of "one percent error." "This time, they're not coming out," he tweeted about the state of exception detainees in mid-April. The administration is building a new prison that Bukele says will house 40,000 "terrorists" who "will be cut off from the outside world." But, by terrorists, the president seems to mean people like Walber. 'Until we can embrace them'Once it became clear that Walber had been caught up in the crackdown, the Rodriguez family's hope for a quick release evaporated. By this point, they had discovered that they were not alone.

A handful of human rights organizations, principally one called Cristosal and a feminist collective in San Salvador, stepped up and, through them, the group has now filed 111 claims of habeas corpus  — a legal demand that prosecutors present their evidence against a detained person, or forfeit custody. "The families have hope that their loved ones are still alive, but they don't have certainty of that," Rossy told me. They also created a website where they posted photos of their imprisoned kin, and composed a song, "Until we can embrace them," that enshrines their suffering and their demands.   Few groups elsewhere in the country have coalesced in this way to lobby. Rossy reminds the families ofthat they are not friendless in their woe, evoking groups in earlier decades in Argentina and Mexico – and even in El Salvador itself – who never stopped agitating for justice on behalf of loved ones who had been disappeared by the state in earlier decades, leaving maps for others to follow. "A long battle" lies ahead, Rossy cautioned them in one meeting.

"There will always be victims in war," Vice President Felix Ulloa has said of the state of exception. Walber's father, Tomas, at home in Sisiguayo, on June 17, 2022.Fred Ramos for InsiderThe last time state security forces were targeting the people of the Bajo Lempa, en masse and without explanation, it was in the middle of a civil war. From late 1979 until 1992, vicious US-backed government forces clashed with a leftist guerrilla movement. More than 75,000 Salvadorans died and thousands more were disappeared. A United Nations truth commission later found that 85% of the war kidnapping, torture and murder were committed by the government forces, including police and military. Walber's parents were among those fighting on the side of the guerrillas. In 1992, when they dropped their rifles after U.N.-brokered peace talks, they were given land as a way to return to civilian life. Margarita, Tomas and their neighbors came to inhabit Sisiguayo, with its rich coastal tracts, generous for fishing and farming. For Margarita, her son's senseless arrest reminded her of the state-sponsored kidnappings that had led her to take up arms. "That's what most hurts," she told me. "Now we fear each other again."  A photo of Walber Rodriguez's father, Tomas, from when he was a member of a guerrilla group during the Salvadoran civil war, hangs in his house.Fred Ramos for InsiderThe Bajo Lempa is also a flood plain, a condition that was exacerbated by poor government management of the hydroelectric dams that line the river. During repeated devastating floods in the past three decades, the people of the region, the Rodriguez family among them, lobbied and protested, even marching about sixty miles on foot to the capital to demand better dam administration. For Walber and his older sister Glenda, who were children at the time, this was an early education in democracy. The Bajo Lempa won. San Salvador committed to building the levies needed to ameliorate the annual floods, and to communicating its plans to discharge water from the dams, so the communities in harms' way could evacuate in time.Now, they are again under siege. Surf City Outside El Salvador, Bukele is best known for two things. First, his announcement, at the Bitcoin 2021 conference in Miami, that his government would "push humanity at least a tiny bit in the right direction" by adopting Bitcoin as a national currency. Second, his "Surf City" initiative along El Salvador's 190-mile Pacific coastline, where consistent eight-to-ten-foot waves in prime spots makes it one of the best surfing spots in the Americas. Everyone knows that Surf City is his, and that Bukele's target audience is Bitcoin enthusiasts and international surfers. After the apparent breakdown in negotiations between the administration and MS-13, the gangs left a message for Bukele in the form of a mangled cadaver left on the highway that connects the beaches to the capital.By June 2022, Bloomberg estimated that Bukele's crypto gamble had cost El Salvador nearly $56 million. That same month, as thousands of Salvadorans were being locked up, Surf City was playing host to the World Surf League's Championship Tour at a beach called Punta Roca. "Eighty-two degree water, no wetsuits!" thundered from the sportscaster.Nearby, cameramen grumbled to a Salvadoran surfer that they couldn't pan without a uniformed man with a rifle coming into the image.  Locals, who in theory stand to benefit from all of this, were remarking that whitewashing the entrance wall to one beach, El Tunco, and stamping it with an English name left it looking like a drive-through bank. "It was good that he saw the potential in our waves," Enzo, who runs a couple of cafes in the area, told me one evening. And promised infrastructural improvements, like finally completing a waste-water treatment plant so that businesses aren't reliant on bottled water, haven't arrived. Meanwhile, new luxury apartments with a base price of $400,000 are being marketed to crypto enthusiasts, prompting worry that excessive development will smother the area's natural beauty and put everyone out of business. It's almost as if Surf City is Bukele's Potemkin Village, thrown up to boost his standing in a handful of elite circles as he loses legitimacy elsewhere. Bukele "wants to promote the country as a place that other people can buy," said Bullock of Cristosal. "But what is his plan for the middle-aged man who has sold coconuts in Punta Roca his whole life? El Tunco already has local commerce and its own identity. Why not honor that identity?"'Dad's not working, is he?'When Walber was jailed, Estefany told their six-year-old, Michelle, that Walber had gone out of town for a job. When Estefany and Glenda left for days camped outside the prison, she said they were studying. Michelle's questions became harder to escape. When he was away working, Walber usually sent a flood of adoring messages to his daughter on Estefany's phone, but this time, there were none to show. Before ten days had passed, Michelle cornered her mom: "Dad's not working, is he?"  At six, Michelle is absorbing that her life is built on shifting sands — a father in prison, a mother who might withhold the truthcapable of deceiving her. Estefany tried to explain, saying, "The authorities make mistakes." But it's just another tectonic lesson for a child. Walber and Estefany have known each other since they were kids and they've been partners for years, but it was only last year that they finally got married. They were the first in the family to have a real wedding, and Glenda remembers how they both giggled when they asked her to save the date — Dec. 17. Graduation photos of Walber Rodriguez, left, and his sister, Glenda Rodriguez, right, at the family house in Sisiguayo.Fred Ramos for InsiderEstefany's dress, which Glenda and Margarita helped her choose, was the color of red wine and had a sparkling brooch at the bosom. Walber had splurged on a new oxford shirt, jeans, and white tennis shoes. He also surprised Estefany with a wedding ring, which he had secretly saved for months to buy. It was a luxury she had never imagined. The cake, a single-tier white sphere adorned with fruit, held the children rapt until it was time to dig in. When Glenda thinks about the politicians and the police who get to return home to their families at night, so easy in their freedom, it fills her with rage. They can't even begin to comprehend what they have stolen from their people.'No one else will defend him but us' The retreat center where the families met every week was a thirty-minute crawling drive down the potholed dirt road from where Walber was arrested. In late June, 54 days after Walber's arrest, three-dozen of them sat as they usually did, in a circle of plastic chairs in an open-air pavilion, roofed in ceramic tile and ringed in a garden of carefully-manicured green.Rossy stood in the middle of the circle, wearing flip-flops and a white tunic embroidered with flowers, calling on people to speak. Chamba kept a notebook propped between his thigh and the arm of his wheelchair. The families were debating: Should they stay the course, and pursue their habeas corpus claims in court? Or was it time to take to the streets? The habeas corpus route had been Rossy's idea. Back in 2020, right when COVID-19 upended global travel, Rossy was in Ecuador at a theological conference. Bukele was about to close the borders and implement some of the most restrictive pandemic measures in the world. She managed to get onto the last flight into the Salvadoran airport and ended up at a quarantine center for six weeks. Desperate for a way out, a lawyer friend advised her to file a habeas corpus claim. It worked – she was released. Now, it's a tactic that more than 1,800 other Salvadorans across the country have also used since March, but to little effect since the administration has wrenched the legal system into its orbit, forcing many judges to retire and intimidating the rest, along with flooding the system with many times more defendants than it can handle. Members of the group have been harassed by the police, and there was always concern that cops might show up in the middle of the meeting to arrest everyone. One woman who had started attending after her husband was arrested was then herself arrested. Now, the neighbors couldn't agree on what was best. The state of exception allowed the police to detain anyone for any reason. If they protested and ended up incarcerated alongside their loved ones, who would defend them then?  People clamored to speak. Rossy called on a gray-haired man in a cowboy hat. He was one of the many who had spent consecutive days and nights on the street outside Mariona, where his son was being held, and while there, he heard rumor that the guards take vengeance on prisoners whose families caused trouble out front. He rose slowly, and then stated his firm opposition to any public action. He reminded the group that it wasn't only themselves who would pay the price for protesting. When he took up arms in the civil war, he said, it was his own life he was putting at risk. But now, any action might put his son's life at risk. When he finished speaking, Glenda – who, at 28 years old, was among the youngest group members – raised her hand. "I may not have as much life experience as many of you. And I didn't live the war fighting in the mountains like many of you did," she began. But, she continued, she did know that all of El Salvador's civil rights victories, including democracy itself, were the product of struggles on the street. She too had camped outside Mariona, and she had learned that viral malicious rumors appeared on social media as part of an attempt to silence families. A meeting of the Bajo Lempa families on June 17, 2022.Fred Ramos for Insider"If the state is going to kill my brother, it will do so whether or not I speak out. If it will incarcerate me – the same is true," she reasoned. "No one else will defend him but us." Finally, there was simply the value of the truth: "The president wants to make this country look like a wonderland, like everything is Surf City," she said – but the world needed to know what was really happening in El Salvador.  The group ultimately decided that Glenda was right: it was time to take the streets. And just as each Bajo Lempa family had discovered that they were not alone when they found the group, now they saw there were hundreds of families around the country who, like them, were ready to march in San Salvador. They began regularly joining the others in the capital to protest and speak to the media, while continuing their habeas corpus petitions. Just before Christmas, the families of the Bajo Lempa packed a bridge on a main thoroughfare and demanded their loved ones be freed. For now, the Bukele administration remains unmoved. The group is now planning to sue their government in an international human rights court.One day last summer, before anyone comprehended how long this would last, Roxana told me something that multiple women in the Bajo Lempa echoed: Since her children were detained, she has been dreaming of them. In one dream, she was sitting at home in the dark, and one of her three sons walked through the front door. He paused in the threshold. She thought it was Cristian, the only one who has not yet been taken. But when he stepped out of the shadow, she saw that it was Javier, her youngest. He was dressed just as he had been on April 27, the night the police hauled him away. She called to him – and then the dream ended. "As a mother," she said, "you wake up to a nightmare."This reporting was supported by the International Women's Media Foundation's Howard G.

Britain"s charity stores are going upmarket

Charity shops are selling more vintage and designer clothes, putting items on Depop, and flocking to Instagram to appeal to Gen Z shoppers. Clothing displayed in a British Heart Foundation store in Newcastle.Grace Dean/Insider Britain's charity shops are transforming as they try to appeal to Gen Z customers. They're selling more vintage and designer items, listing items on Depop, and flocking to Instagram. They're carefully curating their displays to replicate boutiques or vintage shops. Britain's charity shops are changing.They're selling more designer and vintage items, creating listings on Depop, and carefully curating their social-media profiles — all aiming to mainly appeal to the growing number of Gen Z shoppers.Clothing displayed in an Oxfam store in Chiswick.Grace Dean/InsiderEven before the pandemic, charity shops had been experiencing a fall in visitor numbers and sales volume, Kate Avenell, the head of retail development at Save the Children, told Insider.But coming out of the pandemic, customers showed a "significant shift" both to vintage and retro fashions and to charity shops as more people focused on sustainability, Maria Broomhead-Smith, the retail-sales manager for the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire regions of Sue Ryder, said.Donna McGinnigle, the project manager at the British Heart Foundation, said there had been a "huge surge" of Gen Z and student shoppers who were visiting stores "in droves.""Things don't stay on the shop floor for long," Avenell said.Clothing displayed in a Mary's Living and Giving store in Chiswick.Grace Dean/InsiderTamara Sender Ceron, the associate director fashion retail at the market-research company Mintel, told Insider that of the total users, 26% of people aged 16 to 34 had used marketplace apps like Depop and Vinted over the past year.Ceron added that while many Gen Zers are expected to continue to buy from fast-fashion giants, "there is growing awareness about the impact on the environment and a pushback from some in this generation is likely to turbo-charge the second-hand and rental/subscription markets."Charities have cashed in on this. Some have opened stores just for vintage or designer donations. Sue Ryder, for example, has opened dedicated Vintage and Retro stores, while Save the Children has partnered with the retail expert and TV personality Mary Portas to create the upmarket Mary's Living and Giving stores.The exteriors of a Thames Hospice Vintage & Retro shop in Windsor; a Shelter Boutique store in Peckham; and a Mary's Living and Giving store in Chiswick.Grace Dean/InsiderOther stores still have rows of secondhand clothing from the likes of Topshop, Primark, and H&M, but have an aisle or display specifically for vintage items.A focus on bargain-hunting, changing fashions, and sustainability is driving young people to buy clothes secondhand, the managers told Insider. Charity shops typically have much lower prices than vintage stores — and shoppers get the feel-good factor when they buy from them, knowing their money will help a worthy cause, the managers said.Clothing displayed in a British Heart Foundation store in Newcastle.Grace Dean/InsiderBuying online on fashion-resale sites isn't as much fun as scouring charity shops for bargains, either. "That kind of treasure-hunt experience is magic," Avenell said.But Britain's more than 11,000 charity shops, in the past often stigmatized and associated with elderly people and cheap, poor-quality goods, have had to work hard to change their image and cater to what young shoppers want.Shops have been overhauling their interiors to make them more akin to vintage stores, with staff and volunteers getting training on visual merchandising so that they can curate attractive displays.Products displayed inside a Thames Hospice Vintage & Retro shop in Windsor.Grace Dean/InsiderThis includes using chalkboards, neon signs, and plants to make displays more attractive. In some cases, shops display the products using items of vintage furniture, like tables, chests, and shelving units — which are sometimes for sale themselves — and it can feel more like you're in a boutique than a charity shop.Items displayed on a table in a Shelter Boutique store in Peckham.Grace Dean/InsiderStaff often pepper the clothing displays with books, shoes, accessories, and bric-a-brac, which drives interest in the other items and means staff can curate displays to match certain color schemes, trends, or moods.The interior of a Mary's Living and Giving store in Chiswick.Grace Dean/InsiderThe managers told Insider that they decorate each store differently, reflecting on the building's architectural features as well as the local community, history, and people of interest.Features include painted windows, murals by local artists, and even a greenhouse in a Save the Children store in Glasgow and a mini glass house at the Mary's Living and Giving store in Kew in tribute to the buildings at the nearby Royal Botanic Gardens."We show up on the high street with a bang," Avenell told Insider, adding that there was "lots of work on retail design, on the experiential aspect of charity shopping." Clothing displayed in a Mary's Living and Giving store in Chiswick.Grace Dean/InsiderAvenell said that Save the Children works with local artists who create works such as murals for the stores. She said that there were "lots of things going on to really bring spaces to life rather than that cookie-cutter corporate approach."Stores have to be quick to adapt their displays to constantly changing trends. McGinnigle said the British Heart Foundation's stores are quick to tap into what consumers want, with displays both inside and in the window dedicated to trends like music festivals such as Glastonbury, the TV series "Love Island" and "Stranger Things," and the Kate Bush revival in the summer."Because they can put their hands on such a diverse range of stock, you can pull all that out the back that yesterday probably nobody wanted and today it's hot topic, it's at the forefront and they get it out there on the shop floor," McGinnigle said.Clothing displayed in a Shelter Boutique store in Peckham.Grace Dean/InsiderBut these store formats don't work everywhere. The managers told Insider their retro and vintage stores were largely in urban areas with large student populations.McGinnigle said the British Heart Foundation had stores with dedicated vintage sections in cities including Nottingham, Bristol, Manchester, and Newcastle — all of which are heavily populated by students. Avenell said Save the Children developed its Gen Z-focused stores in urban areas and its premium stores with designer goods in affluent markets.But the stores can sell their goods for more if they list them online, where they can reach a much wider audience."If something lands in your shop that's bang on trend, but you are in a traditional village-y town with older people, it's not necessarily going to sell," McGinnigle said. "Yet, if you put it online, it will be snapped up in minutes."Clothing displayed in a Shelter Boutique store in Peckham.Grace Dean/InsiderE-commerce for charity shops is completely different than e-commerce for retailers that sell large batches of new products.Listing items on fashion-reselling sites like Depop can take a significant amount of time and effort for the stores, which volunteers mainly staff. Listings are only worth uploading if the items will fetch a significant amount of money.COVID-19 lockdowns were main catalysts for charities starting to list items online. Nonessential retail stores had to shut their doors for months during the pandemic, which the Charity Retail Association estimated cost UK charity shops about £28 million, or $32 million, a month.McGinnigle said the British Heart Foundation started listing items on Depop following a suggestion from a store manager. She said some of the items the charity listed were vintage, but they were predominantly "hot right now" items, including coveted items that had sold out at retailers. Individual store managers upload the items to Depop, McGinnigle said.In total, the British Heart Foundation has sold more than 3,000 items on Depop. Recent sales include a pair of mint-green Nike Air Jordans that sold for £40, or about $46; and a vintage Burberry skirt that went for £50, or about $57. Oxfam has thousands of items listed on its website. Some charities are also listing items on Thriftify, an e-commerce marketplace specifically for charity retailers.Clothing displayed in a Royal Trinity Hospice store in Angel.Grace Dean/InsiderAnother way charity shops have been targeting Gen Z shoppers is by carefully curating their social-media presences. Gone are the days when each charity just had one Instagram account — some stores now have their own pages where they post photos of new stock and show off the shop's decor."It's a great vehicle for talking to that younger audience," Avenell said. A post shared by British Heart Foundation (@britishheartfoundation.glasgow)  It's not just the stores creating their own content, either. At Sue Ryder, customers are sharing content, too, including posting videos of what they buy on Instagram and TikTok.Some people choose to resell their clothes online on sites like Depop, Poshmark, and Vinted, where they can fetch considerable sums of money if they're vintage or designer. But, as the aisles of charity shops across the UK show, a lot of people do choose to donate them.Clothing displayed in a Shelter Boutique store in Peckham.Grace Dean/InsiderCompared to reselling online, donating to charity shops creates a feel-good factor and community spirit, the managers told Insider.Broomhead-Smith said that some people donated good-quality items because they were clearing out the home of a late loved one and didn't have the capacity to sell items online while they were grieving. And some people donating vintage items simply don't realize they're valuable, McGinnigle said. "A lot of it comes from that older customer that's just clearing out what they were wearing 40 years ago."Products displayed inside a Thames Hospice Vintage & Retro shop in Windsor.Grace Dean/InsiderThe one-off nature of donations can make it hard to maintain attractive displays as items are constantly sold and new donations are brought in.The managers said that staff and volunteers at the charity shop had guidance, and in some cases training, on how to spot vintage, designer, and on-trend items to showcase — as well as on how to price them.Clothing displayed in a Royal Trinity Hospice store in Angel.Grace Dean/Insider"Our shop teams are very much always on the hunt for the treasure," McGinnigle said. "Half the fun of it is you never know what you're going to get.""We've just got that constant stream of donations coming in all the time, which the guys just then fast-track out to the shop floor," McGinnigle said. "It's like an ever-continuing cycle."Broomhead-Smith said Sue Ryder analyzed sales data to decide which items to feature where. "Even though it's a charity, we run the retail side, like I would've done as a regional manager at Coast."Bric-a-brac displayed in a Shelter store in Chiswick.Grace Dean/InsiderAs well as donations of vintage items, a seamstress at Sue Ryder's Hockley store upcycles old items including curtains, bed sheets, and blankets into clothes, Broomhead-Smith said.Some of the designer items, meanwhile, come from corporate donations. Avenell said Save the Children had received stock from "high-end" brands including Vivienne Westwood, Matches, and Alexander McQueen.Cashing in on the demand for vintage and designer items could be crucial for charities as they deal with the lasting effects of the pandemic.Read the original article on Business Insider.....»»

Bull of the Day: Jabil (JBL)

Jabil topped Zacks quarterly estimates on December 15 and raised its outlook once again to showcase its ongoing resilience as the wider economy and technology sector experience pullbacks. Jabil JBL is a manufacturing solutions provider and electronics maker. Jabil topped Zacks quarterly estimates on December 15 and raised its outlook once again to showcase its ongoing resilience as the wider economy and technology sector experience pullbacks.Jabil stock has easily outperformed the S&P 500 and the Zacks Tech sector over the last decade and in 2022. And these are just a few of the reasons why JBL might be worth considering at the moment.The JBL Basics Jabil provides manufacturing services to companies in telecommunications and other industries. The firm’s client list includes the likes of Apple AAPL, SolarEdge SEDG, and other giants in critical and game-changing industries.Jabil prides itself on operating in the background, working with hundreds of the biggest brands in the world to help make everything from smartphones and home appliances to healthcare technologies. Jabil boasts that it helps make its client’s “most complex ideas and products a reality.”Jabil serves original equipment manufacturers and product companies across multiple industries and end markets. JBL’s laundry list of client areas and spaces includes compute & storage, appliances, automotive, healthcare, telecom, energy & industrial, and beyond.JBL’s solutions include advanced assembly and automation, printed electronics, autonomous systems, and more. Meanwhile, its list of services spans from engineering and optics to supply chain, software, additive manufacturing, and others in between.  Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchGrowth and Outlook Jabil’s diversification has helped it grow steadily for years, including 14% growth in its fiscal 2022, which is highly impressive for a company that went public in the early 1990s and was founded long before that. JBL is also set to benefit from a broader onshoring/reshoring push from U.S. companies and the federal government.Jabil on December 15 topped our Q1 FY23 earnings and revenue estimates, with its sales up 12% and adjusted EPS 20% higher. The growth was driven by 18% expansion in its Electronics Manufacturing Services segment. “I remain confident in our plan moving forward, which is supported by both strong secular tailwinds and continued refinement of our more traditional businesses,” CEO Mark Mondello said in prepared remarks.Looking ahead, Zacks estimates call for JBL’s revenue to climb 3% in FY23 and another 3% in FY24 to reach $35.4 billion. This growth comes on top 12% average top line expansion over the last five years and roughly matches its YoY growth rates during a couple-year stretch prior to the recent run of outsized strength.Jabil’s adjusted earnings are projected to climb by 9% in FY23 to hit $8.31 per share and another 6.3% in FY24. JBL has topped our EPS estimates by an average of 9% in the trailing four quarters and it’s beaten our bottom line estimates for five years running outside of one miss early in the pandemic.Plus, Jabil’s earnings outlook has continued to improve for FY23 and FY24, which is no easy task as the overall outlook for S&P 500 earnings and the economy fade. JBL’s bottom-line positivity helps it land a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) right now.Image Source: Zacks Investment ResearchOther Fundamentals Jabil is part of the Electronics - Manufacturing Services industry that currently ranks No. 1 out of over 250 Zacks industries.

At the same time, it can be challenging to buy gifts for coworkers and employees. Generally, these gifts should be thoughtful but not too personal. And the following suggestions strike that balance. Office Yoga Mug Featuring yoga poses such as “salute to the server” and “printer warrior 2,” your colleagues will love displaying this yoga desk mug. For your convenience, it comes pre-wrapped in a gift box. And, it only costs $17 Yeti Rambler This 18 oz. is perfect for both daily commutes and outdoor adventures. Thanks to the double-wall vacuum insulation, their water will stay cold throughout the day. You can even customize the bottle if you want. A pretty solid present for $30, in our opinion. Coffee Gift Card I know. Gift cards don’t always make for the most exciting or thoughtful gifts. But, for those who can’t live without their morning cup of Joe, then definitely appreciate this gift. Bonus points if you get them a gift card from their favorite coffee shop. DavidsTea Holiday Teas Variety Pack There’s something for every tea drinker here, from chocolate to fruity to spicy holiday blends. Sleigh Ride, Organic Orange Spice, Hazelnut Chocolate, and Caramel Shortbread are included in this $12 set.

By touching the front-facing sensor, you can switch between settings. In addition to changing color, the sensor indicates whether the temperature is high, medium, or low. Harry & David Thanks a Bunch Treats Tin What’s the point of buying just one gift when you can get an entire basket? Whether your colleague likes wine, sweets, savory snacks, fruit, or all of them, there’s a Harry & David gift basket that’s perfect for them. Here’s an affordable option we recommend: Thanks a Bunch Treats Tin. It’s filled with cookies and pretzel clusters for just $30.

Their desk will immediately look brighter with Poppin Soft Cover Notebooks and Rifle Paper Co. pencils, while keeping track of tasks will be easier with the to-do list notepad and gel highlighters.

Perfect Gifts for People That You Don’t Know Very Well It’s challenging to pick out a gift for someone you don’t know well, whether it’s a coworker, distant cousin, or neighbor.

For example, both Dream Pairs Women’s Cable Knit Faux Fur Slippers and RockDove Men’s Original Memory Foam Slippers are only $22.

Theme Baskets A gift can be designed to suit those on your gift list if you know what they like. Consider creating a gift basket based on a theme. For instance, get a set of mixing bowls, utensils, and a cookbook for the aspiring cook over at Half Price Books. Gifts like this show respect for someone’s interests and encourage them. And, you can dictate the price point. White Elephant Gifts In most cases, white elephant gift exchanges are just a funny way to break the ice during a gathering. You can purchase a fun gift or a cool gift that your coworkers will appreciate, or a sentimental present that a loved one can treasure. 100 Movies Scratch Off Poster They can reveal cool designs by scratching off the square each time they watch one of the iconic movies listed on the poster. And it’s a cool $15 at Uncommon Goods. Slinky When in doubt, some childhood nostalgia never hurts! There is nothing better than the Original Slinky, and it would cost you next to nothing to purchase it. Hot Dog and Bun Toaster Double the fun by toasting two hot dogs and their buns simultaneously!

Silicone Wine Glass Holder Make someone’s day by giving them the gift of relaxation. Using this silicone wine glass holder, they can sip while showering or bathing.

These Moshi Digits Touchscreen Gloves keep hands warm in the cold, and their unique grip patterns prevent phones from slipping out. You can buy a pair for $30. Cocktail Kit Besides a bartender’s spoon and muddler, three cocktail picks, and a hand-knit cocktail napkin, each kit includes ingredients for an Old Fashioned, Margarita, and Moscow Mule.

A Game of Cat and Mouth With this hectic pinball-like game, you will have hours of fun catapulting balls at one another. And it’s priced fairly at $20. Sneaker Balls The advantage of white elephant gift exchanges is that you don’t give someone these sneaker balls directly. Getting it through a game might make it more useful, but if you give it to your friend, they might take offense. They’re also only $15. White Elephant Ring Holder Yes. It’s literally a white elephant. This will definitely win you the award for the most cringe-worthy White Elephant gift. But hey, at least it’s useful. And, it’s a measly ten bucks.

Panasonic ErgoFit Earbuds If they’re still plugging in their headphones, like the cool kids area, get them a pair of Panasonic in-ears for like $10. Their sound is pretty good, and they are comfortable, with soft ear-hugging tips. Bombas Socks During the holidays, it’s basically your civic duty as a parent to buy socks for your teenager. Bombas socks are more comfortable and stylish than your local department store’s six-pack. In addition to feeling great on their feet, they give back to the community with every purchase. Subscriptions/Experiences Instead of material possessions, why not give the timeless and memorable gift of subscriptions or experiences? Meal Kit Delivery Service Are there any friends or family members who enjoy cooking but can never get to the grocery store? Perhaps they want to take their culinary skills to the next level, but aren’t sure where to start. Subscription food services provide the precise ingredients (premeasured) required for varied recipes, delivered right to your door. Using the instructions, anyone can cook a quality meal by simply opening the box. Home Chef, for example, allows you to send a $25 gift card. Speciality Food or Coffee As an example, a box of authentic New Orleans beignet mix would make a great gift for your family or friends for just five bucks. You can also add Café du Monde coffee and chicory to make the perfect gift. Sports Game or Concert Tickets Around the holiday season, there are all sorts of college bowl games and other sporting events. They will love the experience and you won’t usually have any trouble finding tickets. Make your music lover’s day by taking them to a show. Not sure what type of music they enjoy? Usually, you can find ideas on their Spotify or social media accounts. Theater Tickets Although the cinema is also great, I’m not talking about the movies. I’m talking real theater for an off-Broadway show, opera, ballet, or other fine arts performance. The cost of production tickets may be less than $25 at smaller, local theaters. For your friend or family member, it will be an unforgettable experience. Museum, Art Show or Tour Tickets Your gift recipient may not have experienced everything there is to do in a big city — even if they live there. The perfect gift could be tickets to an experience, whether it is a museum or city bus tour or even the aquarium downtown they visited as a kid. Tickets for CityPASS cost more than $40. You can, however, get some ideas of what to buy from the site itself. Annual Magazine Subscription It is likely that there is a magazine dedicated to the hobby of your friend or loved one. Purchasing a hard copy of the current issue will give you something to wrap along with your subscription. For instance, 12 issues of National Geographic for $39, or $20 for Kindle version. Book of the Month A new hardcover title is chosen by the BOTM team every month. If you’d rather skip the month, pick the book you’d like, or let the editors surprise you, you can do so. Adding up to two additional hardcovers to your order is only $9.99 each if you can’t get enough reading material. For 3 months, this will cost you $50. But, this is the gift that keeps giving. Groupon $30 & Under Experiences If you head over to Groupon, you can find a wide range of affordable experiences, including bowling, paintball, whale watching, or art classes. Donation in Their Name You may want to consider giving a charitable gift in honor of somebody who has everything they need. You will most likely receive something nice from a charitable organization for the recipient. It’s an excellent gift for your minimalist friend; you won’t mess up their home. Contribute to a Child’s 529 Make a contribution to the child’s 529 plan. It’ll be necessary to check to see if the parents have set one up, and if they have, you can contribute to the child’s college tuition. Any bit will help, given how expensive school has become these days. There is a tax advantage to setting up a 529 savings account in which the money is invested until the child’s tuition is due. It is possible to set up a 529 for a child without one already in his/her name. But you will need the child’s social security number. Give the Gift of Stocks and Index Funds You can easily purchase stocks of publicly traded companies with SparkGift, and easily gift those stocks to anyone. Following that, the recipient receives instructions via email on how to set up a brokerage account or add funds to an existing one. Whether it’s for newborns, teens, grandparents, or adults, SparkGift is perfect for everyone. For users under 18 years of age, a custodial account is set up to protect them from selling the farm. FAQs What should I get someone as a gift? If you are looking for a gift for someone, the best advice is to work out your budget within the $40 range and then determine what is still within your price range. After that, knowing the gift recipient and what they like to receive will definitely help. What is proper gift-giving etiquette? Cultures around the world have different protocols for giving gifts. Do not hesitate to ask your in-laws, family, or friends what you should do if they practice gift-giving differently than you do. If you want to know how to behave properly in various cultures, you can always do some research online. As long as your gift is thoughtful and you are genuine in your giving, the receiver will likely be pleased with whatever you give. Who is the recipient? Are they members of your immediate family? Is it a bestie or a new friend? A significant other? A co-worker? A gift’s personality and size will likely be determined by how close you are to the recipient and how close you feel to them. So, even if your new friend needs to relax, you don’t have to book a spa package for them. Stress balls are a good place to start. Is a gift card ever acceptable? Gift certificates that say, “go have a nice dinner at this fancy restaurant,” are definitely acceptable if they are thoughtful. The trick is to choose an amount that won’t force the recipient to spend too much money. However, as long as you keep the recipient’s preferences in mind, your gift should land. You shouldn’t spend more than you can afford. What’s your holiday budget? Choosing the perfect gift also requires knowing your budget – and sticking to it. By doing this, you will know where to shop and what to look for. Don’t forget that buying the perfect gift doesn’t have to break the bank. The truth is that this isn’t always the case. The best gift you can give, besides the affordable items listed as handmade, are gift vouchers. Article by John Rampton, Due About the Author John Rampton is an entrepreneur and connector.

JLL launches luxury pre-built campaign in downtown jewel-box at 520 West 20th St.

The post JLL launches luxury pre-built campaign in downtown jewel-box at 520 West 20th St. appeared first on Real Estate Weekly. JLL  is launching a high-end prebuilt campaign that will result in two spectacular luxury office suite duplexes carved out of the unique glass addition built atop 520 West 20th St.  Located just off the High Line in West Chelsea, 520 West 20th St. is a one-time warehouse that was transformed by famed architect Morris Adjmi and uniquely reimagined as a seven-story, 100,000 square feet property with 17,000 square feet of private and shared outdoor spaces and sweeping views from a spectacular rooftop. Morris Ajdmi Architects redesigned the 1914 warehouse to preserve much of its historic features, including original concrete, brick and timber and generous ceiling heights that make it highly desirable to gallery tenants. The building’s lobby has a custom reception desk with a large feature wall designed with repurposed railroad ties in a nod to the history of the High Line. On the roof, the building’s mechanical equipment is elegantly incorporated into the design of a 7,000 square feet landscaped terrace that features multiple seating areas and views that take in the High Line, the Hudson River waterfront and esplanade, the Financial District and the eclectic West Chelsea neighborhood that flanks the property. World renowned gallerist David Zwirner Gallery recently leased 36,000 square feet across the entire second and third floors for 10 years as part of a strategic expansion of the company. The highly acclaimed Selldorf Architects is designing the Class A headquarters for Zwirner, who has additional locations in New York, Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong and Paris. David Zwirner Gallery joins an all-star roster of leading art purveyors who have taken space at 520 West 20th Street. David Kordansky, the powerhouse art dealer based in Los Angeles, opened his first New York location at the property in May, and Kurimanzutto, one of Mexico’s pre-eminent contemporary art galleries, is set to debut its first exhibition at the building this month. With the first three floors now fully occupied, Elijah Equites has retained Corgan Architects to complete the interior design of two duplex offices across floors four through seven, each connected by interior stairs and featuring expansive outdoor space. Floors four and five will be blended to create a 24,000 square feet duplex with a 7,000 square feet wraparound and partially covered terrace unique in NYC. The column-free fourth floor features original exposed brick and polished concrete floors while the fifth floor boasts floor-to-ceiling glass and a bright, open floor plan. The combined floors six and seven will create 27,000 square feet of bright, flexible space within the jewel-box glass and steel addition offering a 360-degree vantage of the city Both duplexes will have access to the rooftop and feature luxury finishes that include executive restrooms in Italian marble, a state-of-the-art pantry with top-of-the-line appliances and 15 ft. ceilings. The JLL leasing team led by executive managing director Clark Finney, managing director Brett Harvey and vice chairman Howard Hersch, is marketing the remaining available space at the building for lease. “Elijah Equities has invested thoughtfully into award-winning design to create a spectacular new office property that stands out as one of the premier downtown office buildings catering to forward thinking tenants, with customized outdoor space and luxury interior finishes,” said Finney. Hiram Haddad, principal of Elijah Equities, added, “We are delighted to welcome David Zwirner Gallery to our tenant family.  It is especially fulfilling to see our family’s vision for this spectacular building come to life.  As commercial tenants begin to welcome their employees back to the office, we are fortunate to be able to offer a best-in-class product combined with an unmatched level of dedicated outdoor space – precisely what is most sought after in today’s post-pandemic working environment.” According to Brett Harvey, 520 West 20th St. appeals to companies which have embraced flexible work patterns but who continue to seek office space that works for their business, their clients’ and their employees. He said, “520 West 20th St. stands out in the marketplace at a time when it has never been more vital to provide office space that encourages face-to-face relationships and promotes a culture of responsiveness. It’s award-winning design, considered amenities and dynamic location present companies with a customized boutique office experience ideally suited to modern working conditions.” 520 West 20th St. is within walking distance of the local C and E trains at the 23rd Street station on Eighth Avenue while the express A train is about the same distance to the south at the 14th Street station. Well-known for its expressive and diverse culture, West Chelsea is home to more than 200 art galleries, some 2,000 dining establishments and bars, and an array of boutiques and chain retail options. Its proximity to residential pockets of the Flatiron District, West Village, Soho and Union Square offer the potential of a walkable commute through fashionable streets, some still cobblestoned, and dotted with public squares. Morris Adjmi Architects’ work on 520 West 20th St. has won multiple awards for its design, including: Winner, Architecture +Adaptive Reuse, Architizer A+ Awards – 2021; Winner, SARA NY Design Award of Excellence – 2021; Winner, American Architecture Award, The Chicago Athenaeum – 2021.

The post Connectivity isn’t everything: the future of real estate is connected appeared first on Real Estate Weekly. By Iain Miln, Senior Vice President of Business Development at essensys The commercial real estate industry has gone through tremendous ups and downs over the past three years. It’s widely accepted that the use of offices, especially in major metro cities, has experienced a seismic shift as remote and hybrid work models have impacted the traditional nine-to-five, five-days a week office experience. Whilst flexible working was on the scene pre-covid, the real shift happened during the pandemic at pace, and now the industry has had time to catch its breath, it is evident that the new normal – flexibility – is now business as usual. Whilst office occupancy might remain lower than pre-pandemic levels, this doesn’t mean that space isn’t needed at scale – how it is consumed is changing, and what makes a great office is being reimagined. Thispresents an opportunity. Office owners are now tasked with providing more than space to be fit out. The relationship between landlord and tenant is changing, with flexibility becoming the key to providing attractive space. By this I mean flexibility in its purest form, it is so much more than a different way of lining up desks. It has become an entirely new way of envisioning the use of space throughout an entire office building, whether this be across tenant floor plates,amenity space or the flexibility to work across a variety of locations seamlessly. Whilst hybrid working is not a new concept, hybrid working on mass is having an impact on the number of people travelling to an office. It used to be that crowded rush-hour traffic and subways cars were the norm, there is now a different cadence to when people commute. This is largely because of why they travel to an office. The majority of the office workforce has learned that productivity does not necessarily correlate with being glued to your desk. It has become clear that spaces now need to be able to be shaped to how we work – with flexibility. Amenity space, consistent experiences, the ability to collaborate, frictionless in-building journeys – anything that makes occupiers’ lives easier and more productive are now in demand. It is evident that this can’t be achieved without resilient and secure connectivity. However, the key to success is about more than connectivity, it’s about being connected. Put simply, anyone can walk into a coffee shop and connect to the Wi-Fi. A connected building should do more than connect you to the internet. Enterprise-grade Wi-Fi should, in this day and age be available as standard. Notonly should any connection provide the highest level of security through a private network but it should deliver seamless and exceptional occupier experiences. Curb to desk, across amenity space, in-building- and portfolio-wide. Having connected spaces means that digital services can be easily delivered to occupiers, from smart access through to desk booking – friction free. Having a connected building means being able to access a pool of cohesive data from which to draw actionable insights, removing silos of disparate data. Connected buildings and spaces portfolio-wide means the ability to scale propositions and build attractive brands. Modern real estate is very much a give the people what they want situation, and what they want are consistent, seamless experiences across spaces that are designed to support new flexible ways of working. Ask yourself, would you travel to an office for Wi-Fi? Or would you travel to an office that is connected: secure, flexible, seamless, enhances your productivity, and provides access to the digital services that you need when you need it? As the evolution of offices continues, and occupiers continue to pressure test how they interact with office space, there will be clear distinctions between owners who can move from connectivity to being connected. Just as great office assets, those with location and prestige, became a battleground for attracting occupiers, great office experiences are front and centre as competition to attract people into offices heats up.
