Grace Beverley founded two fitness businesses while a student at Oxford, despite a university rule prohibiting part-time employment during the academic term. Take time to prioritize"Prioritizing is the most important part of every day," Beverley says. Ration your emailsAccording to McKinsey analysis, the average professional spends more than a quarter (28%) of their working day reading and responding to email. She said: "Don't allow yourself to use emails as an excuse to trawl through your work day unproductively, or to do surface-level work when you should be making deeper progress."

It’s widely accepted that the variant is more contagious, though scientists have previously said it does not appear to be more harmful. "With the new variant, for a thousand people infected, roughly 13 or 14 might be expected to die." And for those at high risk of complications from Covid-19, the prospect of a deadlier variant is cause for concern. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently suggested that the U.K. variant could be the predominant strain in the U.S. by March. Vallance also noted that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine appears to be effective against the U.K. variant.

ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s main ruling parties on Friday flagged snap elections as the only way out of its political impasse, if Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte fails to drum up a parliamentary majority after scraping through a confidence vote.

REUTERS/Yara NardiAfter surviving Tuesday’s Senate vote thanks to abstentions, Conte appealed to centrist and unaligned upper house lawmakers outside the coalition to join his minority government’s ranks. That would probably be won by the right-wing opposition led by Matteo Salvini’s League party, opinion polls suggest. The crisis was triggered last week when former premier Matteo Renzi withdrew his centrist Italia Viva party from the coalition, depriving it of an outright Senate majority.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s scheme for compensating consumers hit by financial company failures has set itself a billion-pound ($1.37 billion) budget for the coming year to cope with a likely surge in collapses due to COVID-19. REUTERS/Simon DawsonThe Financial Services Compensation Scheme’s (FSCS) budget of 1.04 billion pounds for the 2021/22 financial year that starts in April is its highest in six years. The body is responsible for compensation arrangements for the Financial Conduct Authority, which warned this month that around 4,000 financial firms in Britain were at “heightened risk” of collapsing due to fallout from the pandemic. The FSCS, which is financed by a levy on financial firms, also expects more claims for complex pension advice, and further failures in operators of self-invested person pensions (SIPPS). The FSCS is in talks with the finance ministry over compensation for LCF investors beyond what it has already paid out.

Declining issues outnumbered advancing ones on the NYSE by a 1.54-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.21-to-1 ratio favored decliners.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Dow and S&P 500 ended modestly lower on Friday, dragged down by losses in blue-chip technology stalwarts Intel and IBM following their quarterly results, as hopes for a full economic reopening in the coming months waned.

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Asian shares eased from record highs on Friday as investors took some money off the table after a recent rally that was driven by hopes a massive U.S. economic stimulus plan by incoming President Joe Biden will help temper the COVID-19 impact. Democrats took control of the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, though they will still need Republican support to pass the program. Overnight on Wall Street, both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite closed at record highs. In currency markets, the U.S. dollar picked up against a basket of currencies after three straight days of losses. The ECB, which kept interest rates steady on Thursday, also pledged to provide more support for the economy if needed.

Breakthrough Energy Ventures, a prominent venture fund led by Bill Gates, announced this week that it raised a second $1 billion fund, adding more fuel to the climate tech boom. Most of the original investors joined the second fund, along with a few new ones, BEV said. Last year, VCs poured a record $16.4 billion into technologies to lower carbon emissions, more than double the average from the previous decade. The second fund will focus on a similar set of tech with a bent towards sectors that are especially hard to clean up.

New York emerges winner as Brexit pushes swaps trading from London

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s exit from the European Union has pushed swathes of derivatives trading from London to the bloc and the United States in a further blow to the capital’s financial sector. Britain has called on the EU to grant access to trading platforms in London, the world’s biggest centre for swaps, but Brussels has declined so far. The shift mirrors a move in euro denominated share trading worth 6.5 billion euros a day that left London on Jan. 4 for trading platforms in the EU. Trading in euro-denominated government bonds left London for the continent after Britain voted in 2016 to exit the bloc. Eric Litvack, group director of public affairs at French bank SocGen said firms were adapting to “new realities” as some swaps trading left London for EU and U.S. platforms.
