Business – BBC News

New business owners in Guernsey have explained how the coronavirus pandemic pushed them to launch their ideas.

Natalie Robins was struggling to find a job before she decided to set up Les Frens bakery from her home in St Martin.

She offers baked goods on a trolley from her driveway after managing to order all of her equipment online.

“One morning I had five people queuing in the drive at quarter to eight, and I don’t actually put everything out until eight,” she said.

“I think my record was 55 minutes for sausage rolls and an hour and 10 minutes for 98 cupcakes and about 70 sausage rolls.”

She added: “I’m absolutely loving it, I can work from home, I get a real buzz from putting the items on the trolley and people chatting in the driveway. It’s a real community spirit here in St Martin’s.”

Process to Reopen Pennsylvania

Last updated: 10:55 a.m., May 20, 2020

The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is an unprecedented event that has impacted every part of the globe. Pennsylvania has seen a similar unprecedented burden of COVID-19 and has taken equally unprecedented measures to save lives and reduce morbidity of the COVID-19 virus.

The commonwealth has responded aggressively to the spread of COVID-19, first by working to contain the virus through contact tracing and quarantines for residents who came in contact with someone who tested positive for the virus to slow sustained community spread. When sustained community spread was established, the commonwealth moved to mitigation efforts early in the response by issuing orders to close schools and non-life-sustaining businesses; and to restrict large gatherings. This decision to respond aggressively has proven to be an essential and effective measure to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and ultimately save an unrealized number of Pennsylvanians’ lives.

Responding to COVID-19 | PA.GOV

On May 4, 2020, Governor Wolf provided guidance that details procedures businesses must follow to conduct in-person operations in counties that move to the yellow phase of reopening.

All businesses, including non-profits, permitted to conduct in-person operations are subject to this guidance. This guidance is based on the building safety and business safety orders, under which nearly all life-sustaining businesses have been operating during the red phase.

Under the yellow phase of reopening, life-sustaining businesses that could not conduct either all or part of their operations via telework will continue to conduct their operations in-person, and many non-life-sustaining businesses will be permitted to restart their in-person operations through the loosening of some restrictions under the stay-at-home and business closure orders.

Protecting Employees

All businesses that have been conducting their operations in whole or in part remotely through individual teleworking must continue telework operations for each of those employees.

Business Functions Library for Excel


Find Us on Facebook (opens a new tab)

Business Functions is a function library for Microsoft Excel for Windows desktop that’s been around since 2002.

We think it makes business plans, budgets, structured financings and cashflows more powerful and manageable. We found that using standard functions makes models:

  • more adaptable, because a single function call can invoke a large variety of different kinds of behaviour.
  • more accurate, because, amongst other things, over the years we’ve built in quite a sophisticated date/time system that models time periods very accurately.
  • faster to build, because you can build from an existing palette of standard algorithms, rather than reinventing the wheel every time. Its more of a building block approach.
  • quick to run, because of the fast language the functions are written in (C++).
  • probably less error prone, because of the standard and tested behaviour of the functions. Be aware, that it doesn’t eliminate the cause of
