    The best all-purpose cleaner is probably in your cupboard right now. News flash: You should be cleaning everything in your kitchen with white vinegar. When diluted with water, it is a "miracle cleaner" that our test kitchen uses for almost everything. 


    Vinegar is made of acetic acid, which is a natural disinfectant for killing some common germs like salmonella and E. coli, but is best when used in tandem with antibacterial soap and water to guarantee all germs are killed.

    The Deep Cleaners in Overland Park, Kansas, is one commercial cleaning company that's fighting the flu virus one spray at a time.

    Their crews are paying special attention to highly-touched areas such as door handles, chairs and even copiers. 


    "We always clean surfaces such as keyboards, desk surfaces, even chair handles because those are places where if someone sneezes, and they put their hands on the chairs – that’s going to spread the flu," Andrea Palmer, owner of The Deep Cleaners, said.

    According to the University of Kansas Hospital, some strains of the flu virus can survive on a hard surface for up to 24 hours.

    Lawmakers in the Oregon state house voted in 2017 to introduce new protections for women in the janitorial industry. Those safeguards took effect this month. (AP Photo/Andrew Selsky)

    As the #MeToo movement continues to reinvigorate a national conversation around sexual harassment and violence in the workplace, Oregon has become the second state in the country to pass a law geared specifically at preventing abuse against women in the janitorial industry.

    Women in Oregon face some of the highest rates of sexual assault in the United States. More than 27 percent of women in the state have been raped, and 55.7 percent have been the victim of sexual violence other than rape, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    America’s largest janitorial company, ABM Industries Inc., faces new allegations that it ignores sexual abuse in the workplace, years after it agreed in numerous legal settlements to change how it handles such cases.

    Three times since 2000, the federal government had sued the company for failing to prevent sexual violence in the workplace. Each time, it agreed to make improvements.


    Then, in a separate settlement in 2015, ABM promised to change how it responded to on-the-job rape allegations.

    But three current cases out of Fresno, California, highlight a persistent phenomenon: Female janitors say that their supervisors exploit their power – and the isolation of the night shift – to violently harass them, while their employer looks the other way.

    Floyd King (copy)Floyd King, a janitor at the South Waco Community Center, said the discussion of outsourcing janitorial services has caused anxiety.

    The final proposal for outsourcing the city’s janitorial services will head to the Waco City Council on Tuesday with a big concession to current workers.

    The council will vote on a two-year contract with UBM Enterprise Inc. to clean up to 30 buildings at a cost of up to $582,000 a year. The council meets at the Waco Convention Center’s Bosque Theatre, with a 3 p.m. work session and 6 p.m. business session.

    But city officials said it may be years before the firm takes over all those buildings, because current janitors will be able to choose if they want to continue as city employees.

    Several city janitors, backed by other Waco residents and a couple of council members, had objected that the outsourcing would strip them of benefits, especially retirement, creating an unexpected hardship.

    Mental health counsellors often recommend that clients clean their home environments every day. Dirt and squalor can be symptoms of unhappiness or illness. But cleanliness is not only about mental health. It is the most basic practice that all forms of Japanese Buddhism have in common. In Japanese Buddhism, it is said that what you must do in the pursuit of your spirituality is clean, clean, clean. This is because the practice of cleaning is powerful.

    a man holding a scrubbing brush

    Of course, as a monk who is dedicated to spiritual life, I recommend Buddhist concepts and practices. But you don’t have to convert to a new religion to learn from it. Many people’s associations with the word “religion” may include a set of rules to regulate people’s values and actions; the creation of an irrational transcendent entity; or the idea of a crutch for people who cannot think for themselves. In my view, though, a respectable religion does not exist to bind one’s values or actions. It is there to free people from the systems and standards that order society. In Japanese characters, the word “freedom” is written as “caused by oneself”.

    The new year will bring somewhat fatter paychecks to many Americans, with more than three dozen states and cities counties raising their minimum wage.

    The federal minimum wage remains unchanged at $7.25 per hour, where it has stayed since 2009.


    But many states and cities have raised their minimum hourly pay above the federal rate, including the 18 states and 19 cities that have set increases for 2018, according to a report by the National Employment Law Project.

    In most of the 18 states hiking their minimum hourly rates today, the increases are the result of either legislation or recent voter-approved ballot measures, and range from 35 cents in Michigan to $1 in Maine, according to the Economic Policy Institute. Other states will have smaller automatic increases that adjust the minimum wage to keep pace with inflation.

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- As the temperatures drop, we hear about flu cases going up, and after a week of holiday travel, officials say it could get worse.

    Indiana is one of 23 states already listed in the ‘"widespread flu activity" category, according to the Center for Disease Control.


    With so many people coming into contact with germs at gas pumps and on planes this week, officials expect more states will be added to that list. Updated numbers are expected on Friday.

    While flu season peaks during the cold months, doctors say the illness isn’t caused by the cold itself. They say more people get sick in the winter because the cold temperatures force us indoors, where we’re surrounded by more people and more germs.
