A week after Murphy’s new MVC laws, drivers still waiting in long, winding lines

Victory was measured by Stephanie Montanez of Hoboken by a set of shiny new license plates she possessed after leaving the state Motor Vehicle Commission agency on Summit Avenue in Jersey City.

That transaction cost her more than four hours in time.

“I was expecting much worse,” Montanez said, who said she arrived at 5:30 a.m., Friday. The line extended down the block and around the corner when she joined it.

“I’m just so excited it went so well,” Montanez said, leaving the agency before 10 a.m. She gave the employees good grades for their work, once she was inside.

Friday marked a week since Governor Phil Murphy signed two laws designed to get people out of agency lines and allow them to do business on the MVC website instead.

Those new laws moved more driver’s license renewals online by allowing drivers to reuse their photos for two online renewals.

Businesses Spent $15bn More A Week On Technology During Pandemic

Businesses around the world spent the equivalent of $15bn extra a week on technology as they transitioned to remote working as a result of the pandemic, according to the 2020 Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey.

Harvey Nash and KPMG claim it is the largest IT leadership survey in the world, with over 4,200 CIOs and technology leaders taking part across 108 countries. This year the survey was split into two – one prior to Covid-19 and one during the pandemic.

The survey found that over an eight-week period, between 5 June and 10 August, global technology leaders reported a median additional technology spend of 5% to deal with the Covid-19 crisis as a percentage of the total of their annual IT budget.

5 Films From London Fashion Week That Capture The Mood Of The Pandemic

In a year that so few of us could have predicted, London Fashion Week felt far more of a reflection and documentation of the past six months than a future vision for 2021 when these clothes will land in stores.

While the spectacle of fashion week was missing this season, with most designers presenting a purely digital offering, it opened up the door for deeper storytelling. The standout productions of the season came from brands who put shared emotions at the heart, created a dialogue on our current times and explored the collective ups and downs we have been through this year. It was altogether a more human side to fashion.

Here are the designers who captured the pandemic experience best:

A London Fashion Week Where Beauty Was a Balm

LONDON — It was Sunday morning, the fourth day of London Fashion Week, and as sunlight streamed through the vaulted skylights of the Victoria Miro art gallery in East London, Victoria Beckham was preparing to unveil her latest collection.

There was no runway, however, or front row or backstage scrum. Like all but two of the designers showing as part of a pared-back schedule here, Ms. Beckham had dispensed with a fashion show. Instead, she welcomed three journalists at a time, all wearing matching VB-branded striped silk masks provided at the door, as she talked through just 20 looks that hung on nearby clothes rails.

Several weeks ago, she said, the tentative plan had been to host a salon presentation like the ones she held in New York in the earliest days of her brand. But after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced new coronavirus restrictions that banned gatherings larger than
