New documentary ‘Inside The Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes’ investigates Charles Manson’s cult

The teaser features the voice of the American mass murderer.

The latest film to emerge from America’s fascination with mass murderer Charles Manson is the two-hour documentary Inside The Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes. The documentary will have its television debut on the Fox Network on September 17. Fox released a teaser for the documentary on August 9, featuring an audio clip of Manson’s voice.

“I’ve been laying up here paying for your sins for 2,000 years,” Manson says. “How many times have I gotta pay for your sins? I’m getting tired, I’m getting tired.” Manson died at the age of 83 in November 2017.

Manson was the leader of a cult that committed a string of murders in the United States of America in the late 1960s. One of their most well-known victims was the actress Sharon Tate, who was married to director Roman Polanski at the time. The events surrounding Tate’s murder feature in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Margot Robbie will play Tate in the movie.

Produced by Naked Television and narrated by Liev Schreiber, Inside The Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes will feature new and archival interviews with former members of the Manson cult. People associated with the investigation into Manson’s crimes, such as Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal profiler John Douglas whose non-fiction book inspired the Netflix series Mindhunter, have also been featured in the documentary.

An exclusive interview of Manson cult member Bobby Beausoleil, who is serving a life sentence for murder, has been included as well.

The cost of setting up an employee-friendly office in Mumbai

And a new age, cost-effective solution to common grievances.

A lot has been theorised about employee engagement and what motivates employees the most. Perks, bonuses and increased vacation time are the most common employee benefits extended to valuable employees. But experts say employees’ wellbeing is also intimately tied with the environment they spend the bulk of the day in. Indeed, the office environment has been found to affect employee productivity and ultimately retention.

According to Gensler’s Workplace Index, workplace design should allow employees to focus, collaborate, learn and socialise for maximum productivity, engagement and overall wellbeing. Most offices lag on the above counts, with complaints of rows of cluttered desks, cramped work tables and chilled cubicles still being way too common.

But well-meaning employers wanting to create a truly employee-centric office environment meet resistance at several stages. Renting an office space, for example, is an obstacle in itself, especially with exorbitant rental rates prevalent in most business districts. The office space then needs to be populated with, ideally, ergonomic furniture and fixtures. Even addressing common employee grievances is harder than one would imagine. It warrants a steady supply of office and pantry supplies, plus optimal Internet connection and functioning projection and sound systems. A well-thought-out workspace suddenly begins to sound quite cost prohibitive. So, how can an employer balance employee wellbeing with the monthly office budget?

Co-working spaces have emerged as a viable alternative to traditional workspaces. In addition to solving a lot of the common problems associated with them, the co-working format also takes care of the social and networking needs of businesses and their employees.

WeWork is a global network of workspaces, with 10 office spaces in India and many more opening this year. The co-working giant has taken great care to design all its premises ergonomically for maximum comfort. Its architects, engineers and artists have custom-designed every office space while prioritising natural light, comfort, productivity, and inspiration. Its members have access to super-fast Internet, multifunction printers, on-site community teams and free refreshments throughout the day. In addition, every WeWork office space has a dedicated community manager who is responsible for fostering a sense of community. WeWork’s customised offerings for enterprises also work out to be a more cost-effective solution than conventional lease setting, with the added perks of WeWork’s brand of service.
