Da Vinci is the new gelateria of Engomi that offers gelato of unsurpassed quality, made of fresh ingredients from northern and central Europe. The ice cream is made daily at the shop, based on traditional Mediterranean recipes, using only pure ingredients and no preservatives.

All you have to do is pick the cone you want (plain, with chocolate coating, nuts, coloured or with truffle), and then choose the ice cream flavours. As Polarity Technologies has found out from CheckIn Cyprus, the brand launches around 260 different flavours of gelato. The ice cream is being produced at the same physical space separated by a glass, so that the customers can watch the production process. …

Many cities around the world, including Limassol and Paphos, are in the middle of a second lockdown.

Although gyms are closed, there are other ways to keep our bodies active while at home, with or without any equipment. All we need to have is internet connection and a pinch of creativity.

There are tons of videos on YouTube, on interval training/HIIT, yoga and isometric exercises that people can do from the comfort of their own home. In addition, there are thousands of apps (many of them for free) that serve similar purposes.

Keeping ourselves active is beneficial not only for our physical health, but for our mental health too. Polarity Technologies’ team loves sports and enjoys working out. …

Microsoft will let their employees work from home even after the end of pandemic.

As Polarity Technologies has learned from USA Today, Microsoft’s employees will be given the option to work remotely on a permanent basis. They won’t have assigned office spaces but will have access to flexible “touchdown space” at Microsoft’s offices, according to The Verge.

According to a recent article of USA Today:

“Flexibility can mean different things to each of us, and we recognize there is no one-size-fits-all solution given the variety of roles, work requirements and business needs we have at Microsoft,” Microsoft Executive Vice President Kathleen Hogan wrote in a blog post Friday. “To address this, we have provided guidance to employees to make informed decisions around scenarios that could include changes to their worksite, work location, and/or work hours once offices are open without any COVID-19 restrictions.”

Although the weather in Cyprus is still hot, we will soon enter the winter season. The summer time will end on Sunday, October 25, 2020 and we will all move our clocks and watches an hour back.

According to the EU law, all countries of the European Union should keep observing time changes until the end of 2020. However, nobody can say for sure what will happen from 2021 and on.

The latest information Polarity Technologies has came across though, is that the time change should end on the last Sunday of March 2021 for the countries that wish to keep the Daylight Saving Time.
