Killexams : 5 steps to guide you through the retirement-decision-making process with your partner

Discussing retirement can be difficult for many couples. There are so many decisions to be made: When’s the right time to retire? Have you saved enough (and what does “enough” mean)? How best to spend your time? Should you relocate, and if so, where?

“Retirement is a major transition that impacts every aspect of life,” says Myra Strober, a labor economist and professor emerita at Stanford University. “And the more choices you have, the tougher the decisions can be.”

In Strober’s new book, “Money and Love: An Intelligent Road map for Life’s Biggest Decisions,” she and her co-author, the social innovator Abby Davisson, share research-based strategies for making better decisions around life transitions, including retirement, that involve money and love.

After memorizing the book, I reached out to her for advice on how to have a more productive conversation about retirement with your partner.

Following are highlights of our conversation, edited for length and clarity:

Can you afford to retire?

Next Avenue: Is there an optimal time to broach the retirement question?

Myra Strober: It’s important to first address your finances because that drives so many other decisions. You need to answer the question: Can we afford to retire, and if not, what do we need to do to get there? Perhaps you can delay retirement or explore options for part-time work.

Sometimes, a financial planner who can help assess your finances and develop a financial plan can be helpful. Once you have a handle on your financial outlook, then you discuss the other aspects of retirement.

See: Social Security and Medicare are everyone’s problem

Clarify what you want

In your book, you detail a five-step framework, the “5 C’s,” that guides readers through the retirement-decision-making process. The first step is “clarify.” What do you mean by that?

It’s important to clarify what matters most to you before initiating a conversation about retirement with your partner. Sometimes, it’s challenging to separate out what you really want from what others say you should want.

For example, if your friends have recently retired you might feel pressure to join them. But upon deeper reflection, you might realize that what’s most important to you is to have more time together for travel or exercise. Understanding your “why” can take time, and the same is true for your partner.

You might like: This style of travel is growing more popular among the 50-plus set, and it can offer a richer, more relaxing experience

Once you are clear on what you want, the second step is to communicate with your partner. That sounds obvious, but it’s not always easy to do that well.

It helps to set up a time to have this discussion in a quiet place when you’re not rushed. Don’t do it on the fly. Effective communication is a two-way street that involves both talking and listening. Really listening to your partner, and reflecting on what they say, can shift the direction and outcome of the conversation. Often, the retirement conversation involves multiple discussions; it’s a bit like a long dance.

Weigh many options

The third step is to consider a broad range of choices. Why is that important?

These days, few retirement decisions are strictly either/or choices. Perhaps your spouse wants to keep working and you’d prefer they retire. So, you might want to explore ways for them to work on a part-time or consulting basis. Technology has really changed the options for work after retirement.

Another example: my mom always said she wanted to retire to Florida for the warm weather, but my father didn’t like the idea. After my husband and I relocated to California, my parents realized that if they moved to California, they’d both be happy, even though it wasn’t an option they’d previously considered. By broadening your options, you increase the odds of producing a solution that works for everyone.

When considering options, realize that you don’t always have to do everything together. I know of couples where one enjoys travel and the other doesn’t. The person who likes to travel has found other people to travel with, while their spouse remains happily at home. Of course, every couple needs to find what works best for their situation.

Plus: Older workers are fooling themselves when it comes to work, money and caregiving

Involve friends and family

Step four involves checking in with friends, family and other resources to gather more information. What’s the best way to do that?

Talk to lots of people. You’ll be surprised by who might lead you toward the best solutions. If you’re interested in a senior living community, check in with friends who’ve made the move and ask about their experience. Consider renting for a month in a new locale to get a more realistic feel for the area, before initiating a move. Trying out new things can be a surprisingly delightful experience.

The fifth step is to explore likely consequences. What do you mean by that?

You’ll make better choices if you consider the likely outcomes of different paths. Consider what might go well, as well as what might go wrong. It helps to think about how your options might play out over time. For example, if you move to a new community, you might feel lonely for the first several months. But if you’re reasonably outgoing, it’s likely you’ll make friends and be happier with your decision as time passes.

Also on MarketWatch: My wife and I are in our 50s with $300,000 in a 401(k) and $700,000 in a pension. Will we have enough to ‘live a simple life’ in retirement?

Any concluding thoughts on the retirement conversation?

Some couples include their adult children in these decisions. That’s fine, but be mindful that your children’s goals, though well intended, might not always be the same as yours.

Killexams : HP EliteBook 840 G9 Review Sun, 29 Jan 2023 15:09:00 -0600 en text/html https://www.pcmag.com/reviews/hp-elitebook-840-g9 Killexams : Greta Thunberg calls capitalism and market economics a ‘terrible idea’ for stopping climate change in new book

That’s the latest criticism of the established world order from Greta Thunberg, arguably the best-known face of the climate movement and perhaps of Gen Z politics writ large.

If capitalism created the crisis, as Thunberg suggests, then leaning on its mechanisms to fix the crisis is a flawed idea, she says.

Her takedown of capitalism features in a new book out Tuesday: “The Climate Book: The Facts and the Solutions,” which includes a kickoff essay by Thunberg, then leans on meteorologists, engineers, oceanographers and historians to make the case that there’s still hope to prevent a climate catastrophe.

Last month, Thunberg slammed corporate bigwigs holding their annual meetings in Davos, Switzerland, for “fueling the destruction of the planet” by investing in fossil fuels CL00, +0.12%  and prioritizing short-term profits over people affected by the climate crisis.

Related: Greta Thunberg: It’s ‘absurd’ that we think the oil companies causing the climate crisis have a solution to it

Divided into five parts — How Climate Works, How Our Planet is Changing, How It Affects Us, What We’ve Done About It and What We Must Do Now — the book features 105 guest essays covering everything from ice shelves to economics, from fast fashion to the loss of species, from water shortages to respecting the sovereignty of Indigenous people over their time-tested sustainable practices.

And it looks ahead, tackling the future of food production and implementing carbon budgets, which are intended to limit the huge gap between a polluting, industrialized and actively developing world and the poorer nations that are being tapped for their resources yet bear the brunt of droughts, extreme heat, dangerous storms and eroding coastlines.

Contributors include veteran scientists such as Johan Rockström, Michael Mann, Katherine Hayhoe, Friedrike Otto, Stefan Rahmstorf, Saleemul Huq and Carlos Nobre. Novelist Margaret Atwood has an essay, as does David Wallace-Wells, whose 2017 essay “The Uninhabitable Earth” remains the most-read piece in the history of New York magazine.

Thunberg says sobering facts must be the starting point.

“If you are one of the 19 million U.S. citizens or the 4 million citizens of China who belong to the [wealthiest] top 1% — along with everyone else who has a net worth of $1,055,337 or more — then hope is perhaps not what you need the most. At least not from an objective perspective,” Thunberg writes.

Opinion: The four biggest challenges of the transition to green energy

She goes on to say that while progress is welcome, she doesn’t entirely trust the way those in power log those changes.

“How do all those reductions hold up once we include our total emissions, rather than carefully managed territorial statistics?” she ponders. “In other words, all those emissions that we so successfully negotiated out of these figures. For instance, outsourcing factories to distant parts of the world and negotiating emissions from international aviation and shipping out of our statistics, which means that we not only manufacture our products by using cheap labor and exploiting people, we also erase the associated emissions — emissions that have, in reality, increased. Is that progress?”

‘Keeping emissions below 1 metric ton per person a year will not be a problem for the majority of the world’s population.’

— Greta Thunberg

Thunberg, who came on the scene five years ago as a 15-year-old staging a solo protest in front of Sweden’s Parliament, said her goal is to raise public awareness by sharing the best available science to shine a spotlight on what we’ve done to the Earth and what we must do to keep it habitable by humanity. Her protests and globe-crossing activism created Fridays for Future, a youth-led, school strike movement.

And the book suggests it’s not too late to act, with its alarming charts followed by a decidedly hopeful conclusion that’s a contrast to the alarm Thunberg usually exudes when she’s facing the United Nations or the World Economic Forum.

“Keeping emissions below 1 metric ton per person a year will not be a problem for the majority of the world’s population, since they will only need to make modest reductions — if any — in order to live inside the planetary boundaries,” Thunberg says. “In many cases, they would even be able to increase their emissions quite substantially.”

Don’t miss: Jane Fonda says climate crisis can be blamed on racism: ‘Where would they put the sh—? Not Bel Air.’

“The Climate Book” earned a starred Kirkus review that applauds its emphasis on action and calls it “vital memorizing for anyone who cares about the planet.”

Even major investors and global market players who may in spirit align with Thunberg tend to argue that the market economies the book pins the crisis on will have to provide the solution. They are banking on a belief that to tackle the climate crisis, it will require the reach of capitalism, combined private and public initiatives, a mix of traditional and alternative energy sources ICLN, +0.05% and constantly improving technologies ranging from grabbing emissions from the air to storing unused energy.

Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, the world’s largest fund-investing company, famously devoted a “materially different” 2020 annual letter to shareholders and executives on sustainable investments. In the letter, he called fighting climate change the “investment opportunity” of his lifetime and one that will deliver better returns over time.

Killexams : Photo Park expands with two new HP Indigos

Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala-based Photo Park Digital recently invested in two HP Indigo 7K presses. With this, Photo Park Digital has expanded its use of the technology, taking the total fleet of HP Indigo presses to eight. Now, the company’s aim is to use the technology to provide printing services to international markets and expand the current network to other regions of India.

With the new technology, the company has started to serve the domestic and international markets

Photo Park was established in 1979 and started the first colour lab in 1983. For almost two decades, the company tried every available technology in the photo printing space. But the quest for high-quality printing and an expanded colour gamut ended the search with HP Indigo technology. 

“Photo Park stands for the symbol of quality, which has helped us serve more than 25% of the photo industry requirement directly and indirectly in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. With the new technology growth, we have started to serve the domestic and international market too,” Francis, managing director, Photo Park Digital, said. 

He added, “Photo Park is one of the biggest photo printing companies in India today and continuously enhancing its expertise and capability. We want to be India’s preferred photo book production partner.”

A Appadurai, country manager, Indigo & Inkjet Business Solutions, HP India, said, “Over the last decade, the digital printing industry has undergone a tremendous transformation. With the revolution of HP’s digital printing press for the photo and commercial printing industry, today, our customers can innovate and technologically advance their offerings to meet the evolving needs of the market. Photo Park is a classic example of how the company has expanded over the years, and we are proud to collaborate with them once again.”

Killexams : HP Poly Unveils Mini Conferencing PC And Other Microsoft Teams-Certified Solutions For Hybrid Work Collaboration

Hybrid work has lost its precise definition. During the height of the pandemic, “hybrid” was considered a combination of remote and in-office work. Now it has come to mean many things, with work being conducted everywhere from the boardroom to the baseball field (speaking for a friend). Employees have enjoyed the greater flexibility, shorter commutes and increased agency of working from home. Meanwhile, employers have realized cost savings, decreased their carbon footprints and enjoyed the quality-of-life benefits that offering a hybrid work model for workers provides. That said, the current trend of work-from-anywhere wasn't really a planned feature; it was a bug—one that landed on a whole generation of workers who were unprepared for it.

Like many technologies during the past couple of years, collaboration platforms and remote or hybrid work tools took a massive leap in terms of innovation and functionality. The leap has been so immense that I can't believe there was a time when I had to mute my line because my neighbor's dog was barking, felt awkward about where to look during an online meeting or scurried to clean up my work background before I started a video call. Fast forward a year, and AI-driven features can cancel out noise, focus your gaze and put you in the middle of a gorgeous virtual office. Cameras can concentrate on a single person or zoom out to capture multiple participants in a smaller space. At this point, hybrid work collaboration tools should probably be called work sanity tools—and HP and Poly are helping deliver that sanity.

HP Poly expands its hybrid work productivity and collaboration product offerings

This week at ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) in Barcelona, audio-video and systems integrators showcased the latest and greatest productivity and collaboration tools from leading technology innovators and solutions providers. Poly, now part of HP's portfolio of hybrid work solutions that creates premium audio and video products, announced the bundling of its pro-grade mini conferencing PC with Microsoft Teams as part of its Poly Studio Room Kits, creating “a complete Microsoft Teams Room solution experience now integrated with HP compute for meeting rooms of any size,” per the company's announcement.

Patrick Moorhead, chief analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, has written before about Poly's pro-grade collaboration devices, such as the Studio R30 and Acoustic Fence, noting, “A common theme that I have seen within the digital transformation of businesses, in this case of how businesses conduct meetings, is that technologies like video conferencing are not here to mimic the legacy way of doing meetings. It is here to make it better and, overall, a more productive experience for all parties.”

The average worker spends three hours weekly in meetings, while 30% of workers spend more than five hours per week, according to Booqed.com. Since 2020, the number of workers attending meetings has increased by 13.5%. Considering these numbers, all those meetings need to be better and more productive experiences! Here I'll break down some of Poly's announcements this week, what they mean for the hybrid workforce and what trends they signal.

Unveiling Microsoft Teams-certified solutions for hybrid work

The big announcement this week is that the Poly Studio Room Kits and the Microsoft Teams-certified HP Mini Conferencing PC can now be combined to offer a complete Microsoft Teams Room solution for meetings of all sizes. The HP Mini Conferencing PC is powered by Windows IoT and a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, providing users with a powerful and immersive videoconferencing experience. HP Wolf Security for business and integrated management lets IT sleep at night with full-stack security and layered resiliency from hardware to cloud.

The company announced additional Microsoft Teams-certified devices for on-the-job or on-the-go connectivity:

Poly CCX 350 is an IP desk phone with a physical dial pad that’s certified by Microsoft Teams, ideal for high-traffic common areas, retail, manufacturing or lab environments and designed for multiple users. The entry-level phone has not-so-entry-level features such as Poly Acoustic Fence and NoiseBlockAI technologies. Its full-duplex speakerphone cancels echo noise as well.

Poly Voyager Free 60 Series wireless earbuds with hybrid and adaptive active noise canceling (ANC) and advanced noise-blocking algorithms ensure crystal-clear audio on both sides of the call. Each bud has a three-mic array that triangulates on your voice and minimizes surrounding noise. Ergonomically speaking, these wireless earbuds seem like a winner, even for all-day use. They come with three sizes of conical ear tips and advanced sidetone technology to keep users aware of their voice level to eliminate strain. The touchscreen display on the case shows call information and seamlessly switches between input devices, even in flight.

Collaboration, interoperability and reliability are all critical to success

Whether a company uses one platform for all business communication and collaboration or needs to jump between different providers quickly and easily, solutions like Poly provide employees, partners and customers with the best experience possible. In addition to its deep integration with Microsoft Teams, Poly integrates with Zoom, Google and more. That gives users an immersive, native meeting experience regardless of whom they are meeting with or which system they use. The company's solutions provide standards-based interoperability, allowing remote and hybrid workforces to switch between UC platforms easily. Device interfaces are intuitive, and technical support can be handled through IT management tools or managed by Poly.

The future of work is now

We talk a lot these days about the “future of work.” While that definition continues to evolve, we must optimize for our current work state. Yet there's an ongoing challenge in hybrid work setups to ensure consistent, high-quality conferencing and communication experiences in various settings. It’s an even bigger challenge because no universal collaboration solution will suit everyone, as each space and user has unique needs.

Poly's deepened integration with Microsoft Teams and its enhanced compute capabilities as part of the HP family signals its ability to keep leading the way with innovative solutions as the future truly reveals itself. I’m particularly looking forward to testing out the Voyager Free earbuds while taking a call from the stands at my kids’ baseball games to truly experience the innovations that Poly is delivering for hybrid work.

Killexams : HP EliteBook 840 G9

Setting aside its ZBook mobile workstations and ultralight Dragonfly line, HP's EliteBook 800 models are the firm's second-best business laptops (between the 600 and 1000 series). The EliteBook 840 G9 (starts at $1,129; $1,609 as tested) sits smack in the mainstream of 14-inch, clamshell corporate notebooks. This laptop is packed with up-to-date features like a slightly taller 16:10 (instead of 16:9) aspect ratio display, Wi-Fi 6E, and 5G mobile broadband. HP's 840 G9 doesn't upstage Lenovo's legendary ThinkPad X1 Carbon as our favorite business laptop, but it's a trim and terrific enterprise option.

Ready for the Corner Office 

On HP.com, the cheapest EliteBook 840 G9 is $1,129 with a 12th Generation Intel Core i5 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB NVMe solid-state drive. Four screen choices are available, all IPS panels with 1,920-by-1,200-pixel resolution: non-touch or touch with a modest 250 nits of brightness, a sunnier 400-nit non-touch screen, and one of HP's Sure View Reflect panels with an integrated privacy filter. Disappointingly, you can't get a sharper 4K or OLED display.

For $1,609, our Windows 11 Pro test unit steps up to a faster Core i7-1280P chip (six Performance cores, eight Efficient cores, 20 threads) with Intel's vPro IT manageability tech, a 512GB SSD, and Intel 5G Solution 5000 connectivity for desolate places without Wi-Fi coverage. Extras include a SmartCard slot as well as both a fingerprint reader and face-recognition webcam to skip typing passwords with Windows Hello. The laptop also features HP's Wolf Security bundle, including BIOS and AI-based malware protection along with Sure Click sandboxing of online apps and websites.

This aluminum-clad EliteBook measures 0.76 by 12.4 by 8.8 inches, and it just clears our ultraportable cutoff at 2.99 pounds. Among other 14-inch business systems with 16:10 screen aspect ratios, Lenovo's X1 Carbon is an eighth of an inch thinner and half a pound lighter (2.48 pounds), while the Acer TravelMate P6 is lighter still at 2.2 pounds.

Thin bezels border the sides of the screen, with slightly thicker bars above and below. A sliding shutter covers the webcam lens when you want some privacy, and a microphone mute key is included on the top row. Ports include two USB4 ports with Thunderbolt 4 support on the left flank, along with an HDMI monitor port. The laptop features one 5Gbps USB 3.2 Type-A port on each side plus an audio jack, a nano SIM slot, and a security-cable lockdown notch on the right. HP's compact AC adapter has a USB-C connector.

HP Gets the Keyboard Right 

Beyond even the recently growing 1080p standard, HP's webcam captures up to 2,560-by-1,440-pixel (16:9 aspect ratio) or 2,560-by-1,920-pixel (4:3) stills, as well as 1080p or 1440p videos. Images produced by the camera are reasonably well-lit and colorful, with minimal static. The myHP utility's HP Presence enhancements include a backlight and low-light adjustment, as well as framing tools for your head, head and shoulders, or upper body—depending on how much of your shirt or blouse you want to show.

Speaking of shirts, what appears in my reviews more often than torn bodices do in romance novels? Complaints about HP laptops arranging the cursor arrow keys in a clumsy row instead of the handier inverted-T layout. The EliteBook's arrow keys are only half-size but are—amazingly—properly placed.

Even better are the dedicated Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys in a ThinkPad-style arrangement at the top right for the first two and lower right for the latter. The backlit keyboard has a shallow but reasonably snappy typing feel, and typing on it is audible but not too noisy. The laptop's decently sized, buttonless touchpad glides and clicks smoothly.

Sound from the bottom-firing speakers isn't exactly symphonic, but it's loud and sharp enough for any business use, as well as for enjoying streaming movies or music. These speakers produce very little bass to speak of, but the audio isn't harsh or tinny even at top volume, and it's easy to make out overlapping tracks. HP Audio Control software provides music, movie, and voice modes, as well as an equalizer. Finally, AI-based speaker and mic noise reduction, and sound calibration for supported headsets, are also available here.

I'm sad that the EliteBook doesn't match most rivals in supporting a high-res screen option, but the 1,920-by-1,200 display is perfectly crisp and quite bright. Colors are rich and well-saturated, contrast is decent, and viewing angles are wide. White backgrounds are clean, helped by the ability to tilt the screen back as far as you like, and I can't see any pixelation around the edges of letters on websites and in emails.

Testing the HP EliteBook 840 G9: The High End of Mainstream 

For our benchmark charts, we're comparing the HP to four other 14-inch slimline laptops, including the premium Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 10 (starts at $1,439; $2,249 as tested) and the more affordable Acer TravelMate P6 (starts at $1,299.99; $1,499.99 as tested). The Dell Latitude 9430 2-in-1 (starts at $2,169; $2,994 as tested) is a business convertible, while the Lenovo Slim 9i (starts at $1,249; $2,070 as tested) is a consumer showpiece with a 4K OLED display.

Productivity Tests 

Our primary performance benchmark, UL's PCMark 10, simulates a variety of real-world productivity and content-creation workflows to measure overall performance for office-centric tasks such as word processing, spreadsheeting, web browsing, and videoconferencing. We also run PCMark 10's Full System Drive test to assess a laptop's storage load time and throughput.

Three more benchmarks focus on the CPU, using all available cores and threads, to rate a PC's suitability for processor-intensive workloads. Maxon's Cinebench R23 uses that company's Cinema 4D engine to render a complex scene, while Primate Labs' Geekbench 5.4 Pro simulates popular apps ranging from PDF rendering and speech recognition to machine learning. Finally, we use the open-source video transcoder HandBrake 1.4 to convert a 12-minute video clip from 4K to 1080p resolution (lower times are better). 

Our final productivity test is Puget Systems' PugetBench for Photoshop, which uses the Creative Cloud version 22 of Adobe's famous image editor to rate a PC's performance for content creation and multimedia applications. It's an automated extension that executes a variety of general and GPU-accelerated Photoshop tasks ranging from opening, rotating, resizing, and saving an image to applying masks, gradient fills, and filters.

HP's EliteBook 840 G9 finishes first or second in every event, showing more than ample power for everyday apps (scoring half again the 4,000 points in PCMark 10 that indicate excellent productivity for Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace) and even enough muscle for some mild digital content creation, though it's not up to workstation-class CGI rendering or data science. 

Graphics Tests 

For visual testing, we benchmark Windows PCs' graphics with two DirectX 12 gaming simulations from UL's 3DMark, Night Raid (more modest, suitable for laptops with integrated graphics) and Time Spy (more demanding, suitable for gaming rigs with discrete GPUs). 

We also run two tests from the cross-platform GPU benchmark GFXBench 5, which stresses both low-level routines like texturing and high-level, game-like image rendering. The 1440p Aztec Ruins and 1080p Car Chase tests, rendered offscreen to accommodate different display resolutions, exercise graphics and compute shaders using the OpenGL programming interface and hardware tessellation respectively. The more frames per second (fps), the better.

Lenovo's sleek Slim 9i laptop leads the pack with the HP close behind, but all these notebooks' Intel integrated graphics fall way short of the 3D performance you'll see from the discrete GPU of a gaming laptop or workstation. They're fine for casual gaming and streaming media, but not meant for high-speed shoot-'em-ups or particularly heavy-duty visual content creation. 

Battery and Display Tests

We test laptops' battery life by playing a locally stored 720p video file (the open-source Blender movie Tears of SteelTears of Steel) with display brightness at 50% and audio volume at 100%. We make sure the battery is fully charged before the test, with Wi-Fi and keyboard backlighting turned off. 

For display testing, we use Datacolor SpyderX Elite monitor calibration sensor and its Windows software to measure a laptop screen's color saturation. That means what percentage of the sRGB, Adobe RGB, and DCI-P3 color gamuts or palettes the display can show—and its 50% and peak brightness in nits (candelas per square meter).

No complaints here, as the EliteBook shows more than enough unplugged stamina for a full day's work—plus an evening's Netflix or YouTube entertainment. Bested only by the Dell Latitude in this test lot, this makes the EliteBook ideal for workers who frequently travel.

Unfortunately, this EliteBook's screen can't match the vivid hues of the Slim 9i's OLED panel in color coverage. However, the screen is more than colorful enough for business apps, and it's actually brighter than its rated 400 nits—again, beat only by the Dell Latitude.

Verdict: A Sleek Silver Slab for the Enterprise 

If you can live with a merely fine screen instead of a show-off OLED or 4K display, it's hard to fault HP's EliteBook 840 G9. This business laptop includes everything from 5G mobile broadband to a high-res, AI-enhanced conferencing camera, along with highly competitive performance and additional security. The only question in our minds is how HP can top it with the would-be EliteBook 1000 series, and whether it can earn our Editors' Choice award next time.
